This Is Too Important Not To Post!!!

Subject: A doctor’s letter to a Senator

Long,,, but very important !!!!

——————————————————————————–

Subject:

An Indianapolis doctor’s letter to Sen. Bayh about the Bill (Note: Dr. Stephen E. Frazer, MD practices as an anesthesiologist in Indianapolis , IN )

Here is a letter I sent to Senator Bayh. Feel free to copy it and send it around to all other representatives. — Stephen Fraser

Senator Bayh,

As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the health care bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the government’s proposed involvement in the patient-physician relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a health care system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our health care system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through congress will be a disaster if passed.

I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow citizens.

Page 22 of the HC Bill: Mandates that the Govt will audit books of all employers that self-insure!!

Page 30 Sec 123 of HC bill: THERE WILL BE A GOVT COMMITTEE that decides what treatments/benefits you get.

Page 29 lines 4-16 in the HC bill: YOUR HEALTH CARE IS RATIONED!!!

Page 145 Line 15-17: An Employer MUST auto-enroll employees into public option plan. (NO choice!)

Page 126 Lines 22-25: Employers MUST pay for HC for part-time employees AND their families. (Employees shouldn’t get excited about this as employers will be forced to reduce its work force, benefits, and wages/salaries to cover such a huge expense.)

Page 149 Lines 16-24: ANY Employer with payroll 401k & above who does not provide public option will pay 8% tax on all payroll! (See the last comment in parenthesis.)

Page 195 HC Bill: Officers & employees of the GOVT HC Admin.. will have access to ALL Americans’ finances and personal records.

Page 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill: Govt will reduce physician services for Medicaid Seniors. (Low-income and the poor are affected.)

Page 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors: It doesn’t matter what specialty you have trained yourself in — you will all be paid the same! (Just TRY to tell me that’s not Socialism!)

Page 253 Line 10-18: The Govt sets the value of a doctor’s time, profession, judgment, etc. (Literally– the value of humans.)

Page 265 Sec 1131: The Govt mandates and controls productivity for “private” HC industries.

Page 354 Sec 1177: The Govt will RESTRICT enrollment of ‘special needs people!’ Unbelievable!

Page 379 Sec 1191: The Govt creates more bureaucracy via a “Tele-Health Advisory Committee.” (Can you say HC by phone?)

Page 425 Lines 4-12: The Govt mandates “Advance-Care Planning Consult.” (Think senior citizens end-of-life patients.)

Page 425 Lines 17-19: The Govt will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. (And it’s mandatory!)
Page 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3: The Govt provides an “approved” list of end-of-life resources; & nbsp;guiding you in death. (Also called ‘assisted suicide.’)

Page 427 Lines 15-24: The Govt mandates a program for orders on “end-of-life.” (The Govt has a say in how your life ends!)

Page 429 Lines 1-9: An “advanced-care planning consultant” will be used frequently as a patient’s health deteriorates.

Page 429 Lines 10-12: An “advanced care consultation” may include an ORDER for end-of-life plans. (AN ORDER TO DIE FROM THE GOVERNMENT?!?)

Page 429 Lines 13-25: The GOVT will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order. (I wouldn’t want to stand before God after getting paid for THAT job!)

Page 430 Lines 11-15: The Govt will decide what level of treatment you will have at end-of-life! (Again — no choice!)

Page 469: Community-Based Home Medical Services = Non-Profit Organizations. (Hello? ACORN Medical Services here!?!)

Page 489 Sec 1308: The Govt will cover marriage and family therapy. (Which means Govt will insert itself into your marriage even.)

Page 494-498: Govt will cover Mental Health Services including defining, creating, and rationing those services.

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.

Furthermore, if you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on the country and destroys the doctor-patient relationship, I will do everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next election.

Respectfully,

Stephen E. Fraser, MD

****Dear Reader,
I urge you to use the power that you were born with (and that may soon be taken away) and circulate this email to as many people as you can!

The Power of the People can stop this from happening to us, our parents, our grandparents, our children, and to following generations.

Enough Sleep?

3 AM and enough sleep. After a dream about a woman I know, like and respect, well it was time to get up and write about the experience. She had expressed interest in my story (which really is the story of millions, maybe trillions) who have watched the world go “insane” according to A Course in Miracles.
Wayne Dyer or someone like him shared that the hour between 2 am and 3 am is when our reality here on Earth adjoins the “other world” or collides with those of us here and those who have gone before us. We are able to communicate with the deceased and they are also able to communicate with us. I will do some research on that.
Statistically, I think I have read that more people pass from this world into the next at this time of 2-3 AM.
1970 was the year of RHS’s largest class of graduates. We chose “The Age of Aquarius” for our class theme song. Does anyone else remember that? 🙂

FEAR NOT!

Both Dale Spencer and this gentleman are talking about a fresh way to look at the world and life, and they’re both on TED.com

The world, people, and the internet are changing. In fact, now there’s a way for us, the people, to get paid for what we’re already doing.

Take a look at the video I’ve attached and see what you think. My hope is the work I’m doing (that’s fun!) will generate enough revenue for jobs to be created.

See you on the other side!

March Madness and will this snow kill my plants?

Homegrown

   Sunday’s Homegrown Highlights column in the Gazette shows that a) the only thing predictable about March weather is that it’s unpredictable and b) our columns for Sunday’s newspaper are written in advance.  Hopefully, no one dug under several inches of snow to begin “waking the garden.”

    In fact, the snow acts as insulation for plants from the cold. Ones that have already bloomed might be done for the season after being buried under snow, but those that were just emerging – tulips, daffodils (at least those here in Cedar Rapids that have not blossomed yet) and others should be fine.

     I’ve been able to resist the temptation to begin yard work even on those beautiful, sunny and 70-degree days of March, and I will at least for the first couple weeks in April. Until the ground is fairly dry – much less soggy than what it’s been recently…

LIFE IS TOO SHORT

LIFE IS TOO SHORT

{But easy does it)

Image | Posted on by | Leave a comment

 

Sunday March 16 from Episcopal Relief and Development for Lent 2014

 

“Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up; as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear.” -Ephesians 4:29

 

“What we say matters. Indeed, it matters a great deal. The childhood adage about sticks and stones–“but words will never hurt me”–is courageous but often untrue. After all, words can and do hurt. Our words can steal a person’s joy and murder their spirit, destroy their reputation and lead them to resentment or envy. In the same way, words can and do make us feel valued. “I love you” “I am so very proud of you.” These are building blocks for helping construct a healthy and happy life.

 

The fact is that great power is unleashed, for good or for bad, for building up or for tearing down, every time we choose to open our mouths. It is little wonder, then, that James urges followers of Christ to be “quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.” (James 1:19) How utterly countercultural this is today, as we tune in to just about any talk show program, and hear talking heads carp at each other with no one truly listening to the other.

 

On the cross, when he understandably could have cursed his tormentors or insulted his fellow prisoners, Jesus instead chose to speak words of forgiveness on behalf of those who knew not what they did and to speak words of comfort to a criminal who had little hope. May I choose this day to offer forgiveness and hope and value to those I encounter–through my words as well as my deeds. May my words build up always.”

-C.K. (Chuck) Robertson. 

 

This has been my quest for more than forty years now. I’ve not wavered one iota either, for I’ve been led down a path of too much disappointment and disillusionment because of hurtful words. When Jesus Christ came fully into my life by my invitation, and I learned that he would set me free, I chose to refuse to let the devil deceive me whenever I could. 

 

Jesus has never once lied to me, so my devotion is to him and our Father in Heaven and the Holy Spirit, three in One.

 

I’ll not turn back for anyone or anything. 

 

Let me know your thoughts on this please…

 

Peace,

Terry

It’s amazing to think that in just a minute from now, you’re entire perspective on what you talk about is going to change.

You’re about to learn an important insight, one that can and will make an immediate impact on the quality of your life and bottom-line results.

here it is…

You are where you are as a result of the conversations that have taken place in the past…the decisions that came from those conversations… and the actions or reactions that occurred because of those decisions.

So here’s a simple question:

If those conversations (with yourself and others) had been of a much HIGHER QUALITY, would you be in a better or worse position today?

And your answer is?  Better or Worse?

(stop and reflect before going any further)

Over the years, I’ve asked this question several hundred times, and the universal reply is ALWAYS the same…BETTER OF COURSE!

The takeaway from this question is both simple and profound…

if you want to improve the quality of your life, relationships and results, then begin by raising the QUALITY of your conversations.

Right about now, you may be wondering if I’ve been sniffing glue….

Not since building model airplanes with the kids a few years ago, but I promise you that improving your conversations WILL bring about improved performance in every area of your life-quickly.

Why?

An improved dialogue with yourself and others initiates conversations about….

..things that need improving.

…opportunities for growth.

…the impact of your attitude.

…the importance of inspiring excellence.

…stepping up your performance.

…areas that require greater attention.

…transparency and honesty.

…problems in need of solutions.

…issues you are pretending don’t exist.

…legacy, succession, and future interests.

…why you do or do not fulfill responsibilities.

…love, intimacy, and forgiveness…

HOW?

The how is the fun part, as improving the quality of your conversations, begins by ASKING BETTER QUESTIONS?

And asking better questions begins with the person staring back at you in the mirror.

As you get set for another exciting week filled with contribution and  commitment, allow your mind to inhabit and become saturated with the answer to these questions…

1. What BIG, BOLD and BEAUTIFUL initiative(s) are your going to pursue this week?

2. How are you going to make the world a better place through your actions?

3. What is it going to take to make this coming week a MASTERPIECE?

Everything Counts…even the questions you ask!
