  1. And this is somehow more concern than people born in America driving while drunk and kill lots of people everyday sometimes entire families .....? Do drunk driving white folks kill more people than any other race? There are more white people on the planet so that makes the answer yes...... " When Adib Khanafer’s phone rang Friday, he hadn’t yet learned that a gunman had killed 50 people at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques moments earlier, leaving scores more wounded. He was performing surgery at Christchurch Hospital in New Zealand, and he was the on-call vascular surgeon for the weekend. The nurse who rang him spoke with urgency. “Where are you? How far are you?” she asked him. “You need to be here. We need you now.” The 50-year-old left the elective surgery he was performing and ran to where he was needed most. In the operating room, he was met with a devastating sight: a 4-year-old child strapped to the table, grasping for life. She had arrived at the hospital with no pulse and had spent 30 minutes in cardiac arrest before pediatric surgeons managed to revive her.

In the operating room, he was met with a devastating sight: a 4-year-old child strapped to the table, grasping for life. She had arrived at the hospital with no pulse and had spent 30 minutes in cardiac arrest before pediatric surgeons managed to revive her. A bullet had traveled through a vein in the girl’s pelvis, a potentially fatal injury that is difficult to mend. Surgeons were struggling to control the bleeding. They needed Khanafer. In an interview Wednesday, Khanafer said he had never operated on a child before. He wept as he washed his hands and prepared for surgery. “I never imagined in my whole career I’d come across such an incident,” he said. “What if this was my daughter?" Khanafer, a native of Kuwait, lives with his family about three miles from Christchurch Hospital — which is a 15-minute walk from the Al Noor Mosque. In the operating room, Khanafer was focused on the task at hand. Thirty years of training and experience helped him put his emotions aside. “She should not die on the table; we need to get her out of here,” he thought to himself. “All I wanted this girl to do was pull through.”
  4. Again WE know that using the existing medicare template to service Medicare for All Single payer saves lots and lots of dollars over reinventing the wheel. http://www.healthcare-now.org/docs/spreport.pdf
  5. Voters should know by now after 70 years politicians have never provided health insurance for the people. Too many on both sides of the aisle take money from the insurance industry, from health care providers and are investors.

  8. Women are the largest voting block in America across the board. It's time for moderate women to become the managers of state and federal government. Why vote? No matter how impressive a poll may appear WE cannot become complacent. Large voter activity on election day typically produces a moderate sensible government. Low voter turn out allow the most ardent supporters of extremist candidates and government to run our lives THEIR WAY. Yes a minority controlling the USA has been outrageous. Have your say in rejecting their policies to cut school budgets, attack voter rights, underfund our safety net services, attack our impartial courts, ATTACK WOMEN and deny health care where it is most needed.
