SORT BY Relevancy
In 2012, 47 million nonelderly Americans were uninsured. This is not a statistic. This is a crisis.
Join us and our special guest Al Gladyck, in a discussion about the issues of our current healthcare system, the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA), the Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act (H.R. 676), and the likelihood of single payer Medicare-for-all happening in our lifetime.
About our guest:
Al Gladyck is a retired auto worker, UAW member from Detroit, MI. Al worked for 18 years putting parts on cars, 15 years changing light bulbs and 4 years in between as a computer programmer.
Al’s health care activism came in late 2008 or early 2009, when he ran into an old friend from his Chrysler days. His friend gave him a copy of Medicare For All (HR676) and asked him if he wanted to help get healthcare for everyone:
“I read it. Until then the only thing I knew about healthcare was my insurance card.”
Al lives in Clinton Twp, MI, with his wife, a retired elementary public school teacher.

America can afford Medicare for all
Last week while performing my engineering duties on KPFT’s Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig, a rather disturbing call came from a caller. The caller was not a bad person. The caller was not ill willed. The caller simply bought into the tenet that the mythical free market can solve all of America and the world’s problems.
I do not mind folks having different ideological beliefs in most segments of our economy. In fact it may even be a great experiment to show what works effectively.
Where these ideologies cause pain, financial distress, or deaths unnecessarily to our fellow human beings, to our fellow Americans, one should not leave it up to some unseen, unknown, or so far failed market.
When the caller implied that morality had no role in the implementation of healthcare, I was left flabbergasted. He seemed to be of the belief that somehow there was some intrinsic benevolence to our mythical free market.
There are grey areas in every debate. However there are areas where there are absolutes. Healthcare is one of the areas with absolutes. Those who want a complete mythical free market answer to healthcare have already been proven wrong. Americans need not have had to go through the past decades of wasteful medical spending and medical robbery. Simple arithmetic had the answer.
There is only one solution that makes mathematical sense. It is Medicare for all.
30 minutes is not enough time to cover this topic, so as I mentioned on my show Monday, May 30, Medicare for All is a multi part series. Tuesday's show I'll continue to discuss - hopefully with a few callers who will be able to get through - the right-wing lie of so-called disasterous government controlled health care in other countries; so-called death panels; our Veterans health care system - why our vets should be able to go to any hospital, anywhere, and receive the best care offered for their ills or injuries; how our Medicare and Medicaid systems work - and don't work, and why I feel everyone should pay into a single payer system - everyone - or it won't work. I will also touch upon how we are paying the entire insurance bill for members of congress - even though many of us can't afford our OWN insurance. That one baffles me. Hope you will join me.
This is the very first show of hopefully many more to come. The showsi based on real life events and real life topics.
"Why do people cheat and after an affair, can things ever go back to being good enough to be happy"?
During the two hours on air tonight, we encourage everyone listening to call in and give us your opinions and share a personal experience as well. Remember We All Have Secrets.

Tonight on All Things Spiritual and Supernatural, your host Coyote Chris Sutton welcomes very special guest Wes Forsythe of www.ihuntghosts.com!
Wes' website iHuntGhosts.com exists to catalog and display what he has captured, discovered, thought about and just plain had fun with. Not everything there is evidence...but everything there is real. He is not famous. He will probably never be on television unless he is the witness to a tornado. He is not trying to validate some past personal experience. He may never prove anything to anyone. Wes hunts ghosts because he is driven to do it and his only true personal agenda is to share what he learns and experiences along the journey.
Wes came to this field fairly late in his life. However, he spends a lot of time researching ideas, theories, and equipment and approachs his investigations with enthusiasm, professionalism, and as much skepticism as he feels is warranted on a case-by-case basis. As the cliche says, "There are no real experts in this field." So the opinions he presents on his site can be measured on that scale. He investigates with a mix of technology and traditionalism. He does not believe that we can expect to solve all aspects of the paranormal by using the normal. However, he does not believe that personal experiences constitute proof. If Wes finds nothing, that does not mean there is nothing to find: The absence of proof is not the proof of absence. If he does find something he is also aware of the reality that he may not have found what he thinks he found. That is not to say he is not skeptical of claims. Even when Wes believes a location has paranormal activity, he does not see the value in believing every noise and shadow are ghosts.
