The best way that I can describe this blog is that it is as complex as I am. After all, I have many interests, many concerns and a few 'pet peeves'(otherwise known as issues that I am still dealing with) and a thing or two that just simply 'IGNITES' this Czech/German/Polish Temper.
This is where I testify that I am alive and part of the whole world and to save other people from repeating my mistakes and/or bad experiences.

The needs of the many must out weigh the Greed of the few--to paraphrase Star Trek.
Dear Readers, I have received this email from MoveOn.org and have contributed, I am passing it on with the hope that those who can will also contribute at least the 5 dollars that is asked for so that together we can put an end to Republican Lies and Deceptions about the Affordable Health Care that all too many of us need--I know--I am one the many many United States Citizens who are living and have been living a long time without health care. We can not--We must not let the Republican Party get away with Stealing our health care--after all, do not our grandchildren deserve to spend time with their grandparents--how else will that happen, unless we take care of our health and live long enough to see them born and live long enough to be there when they are growing up and maybe even live long enough to see them graduate from high school and college---this should be the right of every U.S. citizen, not just the children of the 1% or 2%.

Right-wing groups have launched a multi-million-dollar "Burn Your Obamacare Card" campaign to convince young people that they're better off uninsured than participating in Obamacare.
Their goal is to make Barack Obama's signature achievement fail, no matter what the cost.
Starting on October 1, America will takea huge step toward universal health care. That's the day that 22 million uninsured Americans will be able to start getting affordable health insurance under Obamacare.
But now, with just weeks to go, right-wing groups have launched a multi-million-dollar "Burn Your Obamacare Card" campaign to torpedo Obamacare before it even gets started.1
Their plan: Mislead young people about how the law works so they get scared and don't enroll. The problem is that it really could work because if younger, healthier people don't participate, then costs will skyrocket and Obamacare will fail. Period.
It's disgusting—people could actually die because they don't get the health insurance they need, and our entire health care system would be thrown into chaos. But these groups are so blinded by hate for Barack Obama that they'll do anything to make his signature program fail.
To fight back, MoveOn is launching a campaign of our own to debunk the right-wing lies and go after Republican politicians and media outlets that spread this misinformation—but we need to raise at least $150,000 now to make sure we have the resources to set the record straight. Can you chip in $5?
Conservatives are so desperate to stop Obamacare from succeeding that they're literally telling people to "burn your Obamacare card"—even though these cards don't even exist.2
Our plan is to counter their misinformation campaign with a laser-like focus on social media and the websites where young people spend the most time. Young people live on the Internet today, and reaching them online is far cheaper than with traditional TV advertising.
Just for starters, we'll be able to put an ad on the Facebook page of every 18- to 35-year-old in America, and we'll also run ads in college newspapers explaining the truth about what Obamacare means for young people.
We've seen these kinds of right-wing scare tactics work before—lies about Social Security have convinced an entire generation of young people that that program won't be around in the future. And polling shows that awareness about the new program is dangerously low among the young people who need health insurance most.3
We can't just sit back and hope for the best. We have to fight back.We've come too far and fought too hard to let right-wing extremists succeed at making sure health care reform fails. Click below to donate $5 and help stop the right-wing effort to kill Obamacare before it gets started.
