Well plenty of countries on Europe/Canada have it in working order as we speak. Why wont it work for us?As much as I love the idea, it will not work.
The government would have to set fees. Doctors would not make as much money. Would be doctors will go into other fields that are not controlled as much as health care.
Doctor and nurse shortages, then medicine, basically free health care and very long waits for service, if you were to get it at all.
It is socialism plain and simple.
I think it should be free health care for children up to age 18, but only if the parents did not have health insurance.
The federal government should be involved in two things.Well plenty of countries on Europe/Canada have it in working order as we speak. Why wont it work for us?
Also things like the library are socialist establishments and if you ask me they work very well.
Public schools are required to have PE more then once a week. At least the ones I went to.Nothing is free. With "free" healthcare comes tax raises up the rear.
Do all humans have the right to be healthy? Sure. Is it practical to attempt this for everyone? Not necessarily. I do firmly believe, however, that there is ALOT more that the government could be doing as far as preventative healthcare. Nutrition courses should be mandatory in public schools. Kids should be required to take physical education classes more than just once a week. We are one of the most obese nations in the world. If we could teach more ways to keep ourselves healthy, we won't need so much healthcare.
That isn't the case nationwide. Besides, it isn't all physical education. Kids need to learn better basic nutrition habits as well. For my nutrition class last year, we did some work in a 2nd grade classroom. Some of the kids didn't even know what a carrot was-at 7 years old! That's really sad, and needs to be changed. Furthermore, when we gave them healthier snacks, they found that they really enjoyed them and wanted their parents to start packing those sorts of things rather than chips and cookies. Kids don't just naturally learn how to eat healthfully- they need to be taught how to do so. True, it really should be up to their parents to do this, but the fact is that many parents don't. It's far cheaper to incorporate, say, a monthly nutrition class into classrooms than it is to pay for someone's healthcare who is morbidly obese and has diabetes, heart issues, high blood pressure, etc.Public schools are required to have PE more then once a week. At least the ones I went to.
The schools I went to gave you PE twice a week in elementary, everyday for 6 weeks in middle, and everyday in high school for 18 weeks for 9th and 10th grade then it is your choice if you want it or not.Public schools are required to have PE more then once a week. At least the ones I went to.
I really wish someone would have dont that to me, maybe I wouldn't be so lazy and fixing a dock like I just got done doing wouldn't have been so hard.Someone should take a hammer to Junior's X-Box, for starters. Untuck his shirt (he's 8, not on his way to a job interview), put a shovel in his hand, and make him dig a hole. It doesn't matter what the hole's for. It doesn't even matter if you don't plan putting anything IN the whole. Junior will come in at dusk with calloused hands, a sweaty brow and an empty stomach, ready to get the meal he earned and the rest he needs. If he wants some R&R, give him a book so he can learn a skill, like how to dig holes faster.
