A statement from Fred Akshar was published in the newspaper regarding the “collective voice” influence on young children wearing masks was interesting. It was well taken about “the collective voice being able to accomplish more than a single voice.” How true and the change in requirements about the young kids wearing the masks was a good example.
I have a question, though. All this time I have been trying to inspire a collective voice for some very pertinent issues and I keep feeling I am all alone in lighting the fire for a collective voice. Fred Akshar has money and I don’t? WIth that being said, who is it I need to pay off?
Fred Akshar and his bias against healthcare for everyone is able to have the voice that goes against the collective voices who have suffered from their pocketbooks or have lost their lives due to the inability to pay for medications, healthcare, and health insurance. My individual voice wrote about the comparison many of us face with paying huge amounts in private health insurance, compared to the costs to fund Medicare for all, and my voice never got heard. Akshar asked the question in a survey he conducted from HIS website which could generate the results HE wanted to have, with 75% against healthcare and single-payer healthcare for all. Of course, the question begs the answer which put 75% against it and was a non-scientific poll which has no merit.
Is that the collective voice or is there a collective voice out there which has its pocketbooks drained, due to lawyer politicians (is Akshar a lawyer?) who see nothing wrong with the waste of taxpayer money and the clogging of the court system by personal injury lawsuits and resolving workman’s compensation injuries. Someone add up all the figures of taxpayer expense and listen to lawyers bloviate about “how expensive it is to provide single-care healthcare. Taxpayers are never told about how much it costs to decimate government budgets by clogging the court systems of America with personal injury lawsuits and workman’s comp lawsuits, sometimes frivolous and fake jobs, too. Americans are never informed of this and thus, our system is sabotaged and we are not able to progress as a society. People with REAL health problems are FORCED by lawyer-politicians to bow down to big pharma and big insurance with mountains of money charged to we the people who need it, but are not as wealthy.
I ask the question. Why is it only females like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren who boldly speak out in favor of healthcare for all? Because then they become targets of males and Trumpicans, so no one else wants to use the freedom they have to speak out about REAL topics which hurt and murder REAL people of America? I am not sure I have heard one male say one thing in favor of healthcare for all. Not one. Yet, I know various people, both male and female, who have lost life, limb, and body due to the lack of healthcare for all. And if someone gets hurt in an automobile crash, there is someone there. For the person who needs the meds or attention to solve a problem of diabetes and/or heart conditions, well forget it. Go away because we don’t want you.And then Akshar LIES on a survey and then, to look good, puts out a freaking statement about the “collective voice” regarding the “mask for toddlers” issue. No collective voice for anything else because jackasses like Akshar block the collective voice through ludicrous surveys with questions based on a bias. Akshar is a liar and we don’t need such a lying jackass in the New York State Senate.
Wealthy autocrats and plutocrats at the top of much of the American business operations tell us what makes us happy and if we don’t like it, then we can go pound salt, suck eggs or f**k ourselves. I remain persistent about challenging this. I could cry over spilled milk because I made a choice in 1977 NOT to take a teaching job in Canada and to remain in the nation where I was born and raised. Nobody cares that I made such a decision then and now want America to stop being controlled by plutocrats, autocrats, with a movement to top-down supply-side trickle-down economics and commerce. It’s a centrally-planned business dictatorship which controls our government and removes control from the grass roots of “we the people.” Trump and the Trumpicans make a claim to represent “we the people” and they all lie. They have no interest in “we the people” when discussing “private healthcare.” Private healthcare is designed for those of wealth who have the money, not “we the people.”
Private healthcare can make tons of money from big insurance, privatized Medicare, big pharma (write the prescription Mr. Doctor but don’t look into the details). Repeat. People who don’t have the money to ante up then lose their lives, their limbs, and live life in a hell of suffering on an earth which should be designed for ALL human beings, not just the wealthy. The stupidity of those who vote for Trump and the Trumpicans is so ludicrous, I wish I could vomit on them, including Akhar. There is not an overall approach to medicine and healthcare, so when I was on insulin and tried a means of fighting diabetes by drinking vinegar, I did just that. I vomited. Here is the “vomit” for the fat pigs of autocrats with a dim view of lives from the top. And Trump and the Trumpicans get support when talking about “private healthcare.” Those who show him such support among the Middle Class and lower are doing nothing but shooting themselves in the foot, unless they figure they will gain by those at the top confiscating property and resources from good people in America. BUT WAIT! Does that not describe how the Bolsheviks took over in Russia, or Castro in Cuba, or Mao Tse-Tung in China? Confiscate the resources from good people who may have made money the old fashioned way, they earned it, not to take the freaking liberal handouts put in place because freaking Trumpicans sabotage and block good solutions which could benefit more than just the lousy people filing for blame in personal injury lawsuits so as to TAKE money from others and not EARN money – because we don’t have the money due to the tax dollars stolen to put these crumbs of humans before the courts rather than use such funds for the good of “we the people.” Fred Akshar is a pukey individual who promotes such actions and the stupidity of idiotic lemmings follow along and go off the cliff, taking good people with them.
Akshar and his idiotic survey with a question about healthcare based on the evident bias of the man, can go to h-e-double-hockey-sticks.
