Medical care in America
I have lived long enough to see the “worst medical care” in history.
The best “trained doctors,” “best medical equipment,” “most costly medical centers in the world, sitting in our “front door.” Yet medical care in America has hit “0.”
President Obama is working to get medical care insurance for the American people. One would have to ask “Why?”
Who can see a doctor, have surgery or even get a hospital room?
The $12.5 million hospital bond recently passed with only 512 voters in favor of the bond. Do people have confidence in medical care? One would have to ask, why medical insurance.
Medicare insurance is treated as charity. We are asked, “Do you have insurance?” before we can get an appointment.
Would I go to China or Mexico for major surgery? Only if I could get a discount ticket.
I would like to say, “Why $12.5 million bond for improvement to ER and the third floor of the hospital?”
Do I have “faith in medical care today?” The answer today is “No.”

Kill the YMCA project
In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.
Applaud Court’s return to interpretive sanity
I applaud the Supreme Court’s return to Constitutional interpretive sanity in its recent finding in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies, to decline to pay for certain medications that they believe violate their religious beliefs.

The beautiful little Hispanic children coming across the border from Mexico and South America…

Perkins should abstain from YMCA vote
What if you were a judge? What if you were also Board President of a non profit organization?
Say no to YMCA on Tuesday
An April 28, 2013 ad in the Herald Banner stated that the YMCA/Event Center bond would only add an additional 2.5 cents to the Greenville property tax rate.
When I moved back to Greenville after living 17 years in South Texas, I took the advice of my friend, Dr. Bill Thorn, who advised me to become an expert in some field. It didn’t matter what.
