UPDATED 102410: Anybody paying any attention to the number of GE adverts that you see now? I am and so should you…….
As the days and weeks role by, more and more information is being discovered which answers that question. It is beginning to look like General Electric and Intel Corp have joined forces and with the support of “The ‘Bama” have embarked on a project (more like a unholy alliance if you ask me) that will revolutionize health care. This program is being called “Healthymagination”. In reading the linked stories included, it sure looks to me like these 2 companies AND Tom Daschle, who was hired by GE to head up the program, who by the way was forced to withdraw his nomination by “The ‘Bama” to head up HHS because of his “questionable” taxes. He has also written a book on the subject that calls for a British style health care system to be set up here in the US. As this whole situation is very troubling and what is really hitting me up side the head right now is, how far apparently down the planning and implementation process this scheme seems to be. That looks to me like guarantees or something was given or implied that caused these 2 mega-companies to pour money into it. Companies do not spend any money NOT expecting to get some sort of return on the investment, period…. So to me this sounds like a huge payback from “The ‘Bama”. PLUS,….it is reported that GE (Now don’t forget that GE owns a bunch of media outlets.. See the pic.) will embark on a huge PR campaign on most likely all its networks to spread the propaganda on how “good” this new program will be. Everyone must remember that when a company has this kind of power, they have the ability to sway peoples perception. In this case, information is power and that is why I am getting this out so we can take the power from them by knowing when we are being lied to and serious attempts are being made to manipulate the population (us) into believing something that is obviously bad, is a good thing……
And, just for grins and giggles, here is another facet of this situation that I think is really a bad plan.. “The ‘Bama” has plans to digitize everyone’s medical record so as to streamline the health care system and make it more efficient. Now stop and think about that for a minute. If your reading this you are most likely reading it off a computer screen therefore you probably are aware of all viruses and hacking that goes on. Wait a minute Mac users! This pertains to you too… Why you ask? Because most of not all medical facilities us PCs and the government uses PCs exclusively. So, that being said, #1. How secure do you think YOUR medical records are going to be? And #2. How are you going to keep this information from being used in such a manner that would cause the denial of some sort of service such as insurance or something where your health would be an issue? Do you want your medical condition known to everyone to include the US Government? I for one, not only NO, but HELL NO. Folks, I have already flooded my Representatives office with letters explaining to them in no uncertain terms that they should not take us down this road. I cannot urge you strongly enough or understate that you must do that too! I CAN’T DO THIS ALL BY MYSELF…… For people in my area, use the links to the right. If you aren’t in my area, just go do a Google search and find your own Reps and write, call, or e-mail. Just don’t sit there and do nothing…Click the pics to go to the stories.

Any of you folks out there remember the break-up of “Ma Bell” back in 1974? Well, I do. The Feds brought an anti-trust suit against Bell and forced it to diversify and it was broke up into 7 individual holding companies. Well, my question is, if Ma Bell had to much of a hold on telecommunications, why is it okay for GE to own over 40 media channels? It just doesn’t “ring” right to me. Could it be because it is advantageous to “The ‘Bama” so he can move his agenda forward? ……..Hmmmm
ON-LINE MEDICAL RECORDS MADE PUBLIC – OPPS……..Told you so………
