Spring at Last

It is finally time for the world to come back to life.  Every time I walk outside I want to stay outside and become one with nature.  I am a true naturalist.

Health Reform Now

That’s right boys and girls, the time for health care reform has come. It is time for the individuals in this nation to demand health care for all.

First off I would like to apologize for the rambling structure of this post. I am Paul Jones Dayton, and I am pissed of at the state of health care in this country, so I am going to rant on my blog.

With untold millions who have just lost their jobs likely entering the ranks of the newly uninsured, and insured people in this country not necessarily covered for all conditions anyway, the time for change has finally come. With health care costs rising for employers, and many employers dropping benefits of all sorts…. reform time NOW.

I can’t stand hearing stories from individuals who have valid medical needs that are not covered by their plans. I can’t stand hearing about individuals who have no health care coverage, but nevertheless, work. I can’t stand hearing about how difficult it is to get medicaid or other state run health insurance plans. Something has to change now.

Every American deserves truly affordable health care. Businesses should not fear excessive health care costs that can completely overwhelm payrolls.

I don’t know how to fix things. I am partial to a single payer system, but that may not ultimately be the answer. I just know that things are very broken in this country, and it seems to be turning into more of a joke every day. It seems like the only people in this country who have no fear in this health care climate are the truly wealthy.

Life continues – Random Paul Thoughts

I have been very fortunate to have had many good days lately.

The economy sucks, but I am still employed (thank goodness).  The world feels like it is crashing down, but my home is safe and full of love (thank goodness again).

Yesterday little Miles laughed a very clear laugh– he is growing up quickly — almost two and a half months old.

Obama is President, and he appears to be trying very bold things.  The budget that he proposes is targeted directly at the middle class and poor individuals.  Imagine a government that is subserviant to the special interest of the majority — Obama just might bring this.  Let’s pray.

I have been playing with twitter:  It took me a while to figure out how it was useful (I must be getting old at age 25), but I think I can use it.  The more I use it the more I find that it gives me a real time sense of what people are thinking, something that blogs just are too slow to do.  It is amazing that today things that are one day old are very stale.

As ususal I am too connected, and I would love some time on a train away from high speed internet, work, or home.  Mandy: Let’s take a train ride.
