Editor's Note: The former AARP member arguing against the Obama administration’s health care proposal garnered the most attention on Tuesday’s American Morning, with the majority angered that only one side of the argument was presented.
As one of the largest senior lobbying group in the United States, do you believe that AARP will play an important role in the acceptance or rejection of President Obama’s proposed health care plan? Should the organization be neutral, or choose a specific stance on this issue?
Bloggers were equally divided about the libel issue and blogger, with those opposed to anonymity arguing that “libel is against the law,” and those in favor of privacy suggesting that “controversial” opinion should have protections.
With blogging a largely unregulated forum of discussion, are greater restrictions necessary to prevent libel? Tell us your thoughts.
Hey Guys, why dont the powers that be tax the food industry for putting H.F.C.S. High fructose corn syrup in most of our food, plus too much suger. That in itself leads to obesity and Diabetes. H.F.C.S. is in pastries,colas,condiments, candies, look at the ingredients .Were taxing the wrong thing here. Does any one have the courage to address the food industry? I myself get rebuffed when lve called a few.. You dont find this garbage in the food in Europe, why is it tolerated here? Food for thought huh? Thanks D.B.
I think it's an absolutely mockery that the State of Massachusetts is even considering changing their own law at this time to get a Democrat into Senator Kennedy's seat on a "temporary" basis because of the upcoming vote on healthcare. Per the state Gov. this individual would not be eliglble to run – which assures the person isn't held accountable to the voters. Remember that this was put before the legislature in Mass several years ago but was defeated because the Republican gov at the time would have put a Republican into the vacancy. (Gee, I wonder what the majority party was at the time it was defeated before) Why waste all the time and energy to change the law? Why not just put Senator Kennedy's vote into the count when the time comes! I am ashamed of our politicians.
Why can't we have a comprehensive Health Care Bill that includes everyone, excludes noone, and actually benefits the United States citizens......you know the ones that you are suppose to be working for.
We need a bill where there is no "tACK-ONS", WHERE WE ARE TREATED WITH SELF-RESPECT AND DIGNITY.Where there is no penaty for becoming a senior citizen, ande where all citizens are treated as if they really matter.
Have the labels, the tv and radio stations so gotten in the way, that you have forgotten what's important, think about it!
