If you have to try this hard to get people to like it….There’s probably something fundamentally wrong with it.
Mr. President if Obama Care is so great why are you exempt from it?
Amazing how this many years later Obama is still spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to convince people its a good plan. Perhaps give everyone who signs up as a payer a chevy volt.
If both party’s are calling this a train wreck, then why are we getting this shoved down our throats?
It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication
somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government
bureaucracy to administer it.
At the time of this writing (Sept 2013), nation-wide approval for the new Obamacare mandate is at around 35% and dropping. Congress, please don’t do this to our country.
Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Paul Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that’s equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful.
Talks like this are really frustrating to me.
As with all of these kinds of environmental talks, the end-game is always the same – government. Show me a solid solution that doesn’t end with handing over our rights and freedoms (in America at least) in exchange for an oppressive totalitarian dictatorship (IE. carbon tax) and I’ll start to take you seriously.
Show me a workable plan for an all-electric, solar powered, national transportation grid and I’ll get on board. Show me a new farming technique that produces more crops on less land. Show me a viable business module that changes garbage into energy. These are actually helpful ideas. Government calling our future climate an “insurmountable crisis” as an excuse to become overbearingly constrictive (like your Pearl Harbor example) is not a good solution for anybody.
The combination of speculation, lack of real solutions, and suggestion of more government restrictions as the only solution makes me file this talk squarely in the “Propaganda” category.
