Re: “Missing the point about Hobby Lobby

The bottom line is MONEY. The GOP does not want to have a single payer system, insisting that health care is not a right but a "privilege." If we gave EVERYONE health care, there might not be enough high quality care for the "privileged." The GOP does not want the "undeserving poor" to have coverage.
Those who think health care is a right are called socialists.

Hobby Lobby is using a religious argument to gain POWER. This case gave them a foot in the door! Now they can say that anything they do not want to pay for is "against their religion"--and so can every other corporation! Hobby Lobby buys most of its merchandise from China, the place where the one child policy was in place for years. The number of state mandated abortions in China is mind-boggling. Odd that Hobby Lobby sees no problem buying lots of cheap shit from China, right? This is not about religion, people. It is all about money and power.

This is a beautiful article. I do not know many of the music references, but I feel the love that you shared with each person you mentioned. "In the end, the love you make is the love you take." Paul McCartney

Re: “Your kid and my kid are not playing in the pros

The doctor struck a nerve! There are many defensive comments here. If your family embraced sports as a family activity, became closer as a result, and have no regrets, then the doc is not speaking to you! If your family spent $$ and family time you did not have chasing a long-shot "dream," the end goal being a college or pro career, he is saying that you should put the whole thing in perspective. I think that is all he is trying to say. We had a theater kid, a "do a little of everything" kid, and an athlete who did get a D-1 scholarship. They are all grown up, each with great jobs (not pro sports). Their successes tend to be the byproduct of their work ethic, realistic expectations, and positive relationship to the world. I think the doc is trying to say, stop and realize that this is the one "family time" you will ever have: is it how you want it to look? If not, make some strategic changes so you have closeness, happiness, and love--not just pipe dreams. If your kid is THAT talented, little will stand in his/her way. It will all work out. Parental pushing will not help. And for parents to ignore their responsibility to the health of their children in favor of a few minutes of playing time--this is not OK.

Re: “Local food alone can't save us (or not yet)

So where can I get non-GMO, no pesticide, no hormone food in the Indy area?

Re: “Your kid and my kid are not playing in the pros

Did anyone see the movie with the late great Harrold Ramis, "Stripes"? If so you will understand this: "Lighten up, Francis!" I think some of you do not know how to understand when something is written tongue in cheek...Dr. Profeta obviously supports kids doing sports, or he would have chosen a different specialty. I think he made some very sound points in a funny way. I would be glad to take my children (if they weren't already grown-ups) to Dr. Profeta since I think he would tell us the truth. My daughter got great care at St. V's sports medicine center and also at Methodist sports. One of the best physical therapists who ever lived, Darrell Barnes, is at St. V's sports medicine. People! Get a grip! All Dr. Profeta is saying is to have a little perspective.

Re: “Your kid and my kid are not playing in the pros

In my above comment, I meant "Sports INSTEAD of academics?" Not the other way around...sorry.
