- Secrets of Centurion Fit-Healthy Long Lives
Have you ever wondered what the secrets are to longevity? And have you also seen others that never seem to age and have tons of energy? If you want to know how they do it, look no further. You simply have to know what the mind, body and spirit need.
A message from the people to all those self serving, thoughtless, greedy power mongering politicians: Stop the pork barrel back door Ponzi scheme deals, stop the campaigning to win over special interest votes and stop spending money we don't have. Just because you can doesn’t make it right! Release your grip on our hard earned tax dollars, do the peoples work and simply do the right and moral thing!
I know politicians feel we are uneducated peasants that can't think for ourselves and of course our Federal government knows what's right for us. With this being said, spending 1trillion plus dollars for more bureaucracy to regulate our HMO's, health insurance and other special interest industries is not the answer in solving our health care cost problems. Sweet and short, the answer is not in federal health intervention through more governmental regulation, but instead a marketplace that provides a competitive supply and demand model. However our government could legislate to subsidize health care for those in need as opposed to reforming our entire health care system.
This help does not mean changing our national HMO's and insurance policies to the point it breaks what's already working. Let the government instead focus on Medicaid to provide health care services for those that cannot afford, or who are without health insurance. And while they’re at it, fix the problems that exist in Medicare before they take on anything larger. Otherwise, it's more cost to us the tax payer!
The ultimate solution to reducing heath care costs is in ill-health preventative practices and education. To me this is so obvious and could be done at a fraction of the now proposed cost of health care reform. In other words, provide more ill-health prevention, activity and nutritional education to our children. And then don't stop there. Continue these educational services and programs throughout the entire adult lifespan, including incentives to maintain a fit-healthy mind-body lifestyle.
I just don't get why our government won't open their eyes. All the pieces of the puzzle are right in front of the current administration yet they can't put health care reform together in a way without breaking the bank and possibly our medical and health insurance industries. So why won't they do the right thing? You see corruption runs deep in our government to achieve a political agenda. And this agenda is all about power, greed and control over the people. However, we the voters still have the power to change any political course through our vote. Never forget that!
Ill-health prevention in its basic elements revolves around education and application of proper nutrition, fitness exercise activity, pain management and alternative/natural health services programming. The problem for our government... There is no money in ill-health prevention reform for them, or the industries special interest groups, or stock/stake holders. The money lies within the pharmaceutical, surgical and bio-tech industries which trump ill-health prevention and natural cures and fitness lifestyle.
So if the argument and support would shift to incorporate ill-health prevention within health reform as a major legislative component then our Government budgets would be reduced simply through less needed government programs.
So you tell me, does our government really care about the 20% American population that can't afford health insurance? Or are they using the minority health hardship cases to make a bad business argument and decision while creating more debt to the people's treasury?
The only thing these guys agree on is power and control in back room deals which are now running rampant throughout our government. There is no accountability, just finger pointing as our economy sinks deeper in despair. This leads me to wonder about our brave men and women in uniform. I've always believed our government would not sacrifice them without just cause and in defense of our national interest. But I have questioned two of the Middle East wars (our foreign policies). And especially question the way our government has handled our domestic front, i.e., outsourced many of our manufacturing jobs, provides tax credits, or receives no tax from US manufacturers overseas; unfair import, duties and excise tax's/trade agreements, unemployment, crumbling infrastructure, increased energy costs, out-of-control health care costs and of course our massive national debt,
In essence, our government has become the greatest “Czar” hedge fund Ponzi scheme manager in the civilized world by replacing debt with more debt spending. China sees this and their concerned about loaning more credit to the US. The sad thing is our governmental policies and handling of tax dollars make "now jailed" Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme look like Childs play. At least with Bernie, you knew he was a crook and could pin the scheme to him. But our government is so massive and illusive you can't pin down anybody for anything. Instead you get spin and irritating rhetoric, never a straight answer. It's actually disgusting and embarrassing; I can hardly watch our politicians without embarrassment. I can't imagine what the civilized world leaders think about our government. Aren’t we supposed to lead the moral compass in the civilized world? What a “smoke and mirrors” role model we play for our children and the rest of the world. It's no wonder so many of our teens are having problems. Look at their role models! How do we fix this mess?
We need to vote good, honest leadership type characters into power with integrity that will represent the people. Like all power shifts, evil is very tough to unseat once it gets its hooks into the venue. You know this is the case, but don't want to get involved. You want to wear blinders because this truth is hard to accept. Our lives are good with many comforts. But as many are finding out, these comforts and freedoms are slowly being taken away.
Where are the brave leaders in America? Well, their smart enough to know the evil in our government right now is rampant and could steal their heart and soul should they dare to help fix this mess that was created by attorneys and politicians. In who's right mind would want to risk their good name to fix our laws/constitution. And in doing the right thing, you take the chance that the media would totally destroy your good name!
That's where the honest, fearless and selfless sacrifice type leaders must step up. If not them, then who? Where are the heroes of yesterday?
Only in numbers can we move mountains. There is power in numbers and numbers represent the people's will. Together we can get one step closer to healing families, influencing legislation; reaching out to all "young and old" and those living in unnecessary and disabling physical and mental pain. Through ill-health preventative health care reform, the people can redirect and make this change by first voting corrupt politians out of office to begin leading with a moral and fit-healthy compass!
But you have to get out and vote to bring the right leadership into government to get the people's work done. And if you’re not willing to do your share by voting and leading our youth as a positive role model, then you have no right to complain about the cost of anything, e.g., socialized programs, higher cost of living increases etc., or for that matter losing your liberties and freedoms. As I like to say, if you’re not part of the solution, your part of the problem.
