Question me, have fun
- Bolingbrook, Illinois,
- Many people write or speak to tell us what we should think.
Some want to be believed because they are experts, or think they are. Some want to be believed because they claim to speak for us. Some have had revelations. Others want us to trust them because they communicate through prominent media outlets.
Many tell us what we should think. I write to encourage my readers to think for themselves. I write to ask you to inquire.
Question me. Have fun.

Dear Mr. Romney,
You stated many times that illegal immigrants should return to their countries of origin and get back in line. Why do we need a line to begin with? I grew up in Poland, then… Read full post »

In the final push for passing his concept of health care reform, President Barack Obama concluded that there is no reason for debating health care reform any further due to “honest and substantial differences between the parties.” Why we shoul… Read full post »

Over the past few months, I have tried to make sense out of our health care crisis. To follow my thought process, please check my previous six postings at the Open Salon.
The House health care overhaul bill passed not because Democrats prepared a good proposal but because Republicans showed amazing inability in presenting a viable alternative.
In particular, young and healthy people tend to not buy health insurance. However, without their contributions any health in… Read full post »
Among opponents of the health reform proposal, the public option draws most of their criticism. Pundits speculate whether Obama will drop it or not. All the energy put in debating the public option is futile. It misses the problem.
The problem is that we have 47 million uninsured.… Read full post »

In the report, that the President received from his Council of Economic Advisers, beginning on page 13 and following, we can read:
"At a fundamental level, the inefficiencies stem from the fact that health care is very different from conventional goods and services. The markets for health insuranc… Read full post »
One week after posting my open letter asking for a concept in the health care reform bill, I received an email from President Barack Obama.
Several hours before my letter showed up on the internet, I forwarded it to the White House, using the “contact us” form… Read full post »

A few weeks ago, Fareed Zakaria questioned our mostly military response to radical Islam. Readers posted hundreds of comments passionately opposing or supporting Mr. Zakaria’s thesis.

Some banks gave mortgage loans to people who cannot keep a house under any conditions. These so-called toxic assets paralyzed the banking system, as now no one knows how much the banks are worth.

If governments were around 65 millions years ago, they would use taxpayer’s money to save dinosaurs from extinction. One can come with such conclusion when seeing as government is trying to save Wall Street financial giants from falling into oblivion.

The present recession overshadows our unresolved immigration mess. However, be it the stimulus package or the recently passed State Children's Health Insurance Program - those unsettled immigration issues pop up in the background. Whether we want it or not, we have to address this issue again.
