Today is my son Caleb’s birthday. Happy 16th Birthday Caleb Jerome Hood!

People ask me, as a dentist, what I think of the health care bill.  I could not be more upset with a piece of legislation.  We started out with the best health care system in the world.  Granted, there are things about our system which need improvement.  Why not improve what we have, rather than throw our system out and adopt a European/Canadian system that we know doesn’t work?

People are just now beginning to understand how destructive this “health care” bill is to the American way of life.  Socialized medicine can do nothing but lower quality.  The more people realize what this bill entails, the more outrage toward it will build.

There are those (progressives) among us who wish, through the superiority of the educated elite, to scandalize, vilify, transducer, and denigrate our founding fathers’ “contemptible Constitution” so that government actively grows and only the best of “We the people” (the privileged caste, those with extensive Ivory Tower pedigrees) rule.  Obama believes:  Oligarchy trumps democracy, Brains trump morality, U.N. trumps U.S.A.  Fortunately, for this great nation, the “barbarian” majority do not agree with such radical ideology.  Unfortunately, many of our elected law-makers are progressives of the same sentiment.

Not about to give up hope,

Dr. James G. Hood
