Naivety

Naivety is having or showing a lack of experience or understanding. This definition of the word came to mind as I read my medical “news” today. Medicare is preparing to “improve patient care” by implementing a new reimbursement plan that will cut their payments for healthcare providers. Sadly enough, most people won’t question such a “noble cause.” Perhaps we can improve other entities using this same philosophy. I suggest we start with the federal government and cut their salaries to improve their work—how can they argue with their own rationale?? Sorry, I am being naive.

Our Future

D73F5F47-EBCF-49C0-A520-240537573623.jpegWhat does the future look like for our next generation? The national debt continues to grow rapidly, currently at over $21 T.
The Social Security Trust Fund will be broke by 2034. The cost of everything is escalating, including taxes. There is global pollution and climate changes, terrorism, starvation, wars, overpopulation. We are teaching our children anything goes, they are entitled to whatever they want, work is optional, any discipline is abuse and unacceptable, and someone else is always responsible.
Obviously we have to change this course by using common sense and rewarding good behavior. Individual freedoms must come with personal responsibility.
