The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Spend, Spend, Spend
Sure, the economy looks pretty good. And President George War Bush points to the supposed health of the economy as evidence that his tax cuts are working. Once again this is a much too simple view of things. Tax cuts are only one part of the picture. I’ve talked about this before. I don’t know why we have to keep rehashing this every few months. And I don’t know why the Democrats don’t effectively answer the assertions of the Republicans. One more time, here it is: it is easy for an individual to look prosperous when he is running up huge credit card debt, and it is easy for a country to look prosperous when it is engaged in huge deficit spending. Read this article for example. Can we move on to other things now, like actually solving some problems?


NPR says that productivity is rising but wages aren’t.


Health Notes
This is very important: an article published in the September 12 issue of the Journal of the American Heart Association says that those who suffer sudden cardiac arrest usually experience clear warning symptoms.
Chest pain
Difficulty breathing
Nausea or vomiting
Dizziness or fainting

So if you have symptoms like these, and if you are at risk of heart problems, chances are you can be saved if you get help fast.

    I recently published an article on AEDs – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

    Statistics give us more and more pieces of information that are bound to worry us, to make us react and change something if we can. More and more people and in earlier and earlier stages of their life die of a heart disease. Statistics, only in the US, are extremely alarming:
    - Every 30 seconds someone dies because of a heart disease;
    - More than 2.500 Americans die daily because of heart diseases;
    - Every 20 seconds there is a person dying from a heart attack;
    - Each year 6 million people are hospitalized because of a heart disease;
    - The number 1 killer is a heart disease.
    Although AEDs are not a universal panacea for all heart diseases, nothing else can compete to its major feature, that of actually re-starting the heart after it has been stopped by a sudden cardiac arrest. Under these circumstances is it necessary to ask you why anyone in this world, any family, in any home would hope for having such a device in their first aid locker?

    If you feel this helps, please drop by my website for additional information, such as Public Access Defibrillation PAD or additional resources on AED manufacturers such as Philips defibrillators, Zoll AEDs or Cardiac Science AEDs.

    Regards,

    Michael
