Anything Goes for Profit?

I recommend that after you read my last post about not worrying about putting "healthcare providers" out of business, you check Bill Maher's discussion on

Saw Maher's discussion and I couldn't agree more!

Yes and Yes and YES! This is why I am hardly interested in most conversations apart from how the characterization and "substance" of corporations can be booted from the Constitution. I mean, why are we railing at our neighbors? They are persons aren't they-- albeit very powerful persons whose "single vote", freedoms, liberties, rights and resources far outweigh those of you and me? We have been loving our neighbors while their intentions towards us are death-dealing, and while we use kid gloves and appease and concede things to them when we want some kind of change--defer to them really. This is love? Why isn't this the issue front and center and in plain English? Why isn't this what we get done first? The relationship is more often than not parasitic and not symbiotic. I am aware of this history. Where and what is the purgative? Ought this to be left to God's purification alone?
Thanks for the space to air and the link.

You are right Harmon. You have touched on some profound issues that deserve further exploration.

Well, these our the words about ideas that come from the "mixed" constituents along the journey from the Cave. Ultimately, I am aware, more often than not, for me is to realize the balanced and immovable state of mind that understands and achieves peace by always being conscious of "the Good". Being only knowledgeable and correct often still leaves one at a loss. Looking forward to your thoughts. Thank you Howard.
