Sicko
Hi all, i just finished watching sicko on line for free. Something that was said by the group of Americans living in France has stuck with me ; that in France the government is afraid of the people, here in the US, the people are afraid of the government. How true, and sad. I want to take to the streets, but i feel so hopeless, because i no longer believe that that we the people can make a difference.

3. Totally,
But, how do we get people to understand that that we the people have th e power? I try every day to get my family and friends to stop watching the tv and to do something, but people have given up hope. This is no longer the country my grandfather always spoke of as the beacon of hope and opportunity. He was a jamaican of british descent living in Panama.

4. We saw it Sat night at the theater
Hubby who is a family physician loved it. I heard him on the phone with friends saying they needed to see it and that it showed how biased our news is. I have been saying this for ages but he had seen the Gupta piece with me and now he finally GETS it.

All doctors must see SICKO.

All the Rep Pill Pushers must be tied down with ropes and made to see SICKO.
