Axis Community Health needs our help

Original post made by Jeb Bing, editor of the Pleasanton Weekly, on Dec 11, 2010

Drive by Axis Community Health's aging facilities on Railroad Avenue any weekday morning and you're likely to see patients waiting to see a doctor or nurse that Axis provides. They are among the thousands of needy in the Tri-Valley who rely on this community health organization and its clinics for basic health care. They are not all poor, although many are. Some have lost their jobs and the health insurance that came with them and now can't afford private care. Others work in hourly jobs where health care is not offered or too expensive.

Here we are giving 10 billion a month away to places that the people dont even want us in, and we cant give basic health care to our citizens. I know, I know, health care isnt a right, you have to work for it. Straight from the Foxx entertainmant show. These incidents expose us as arrogant, disillusioned, americans. We need to worry about our own yard instead of trying to fix everyone elses. We are heading down a dangerous, dysfunctional path. When a reality show bimbo is the frontrunner for one of our 2 parties, we are in trouble. Maybe we can have Ryan Seacrest as her VP running mate. I am sick of seeing our money being wasted on macho crap that is getting us no where. Has anyone thought about the cost that is incurred from this combat? These people that come back from serving are going to need help for a long time. All because of the little Crawford Man who thought he could pull a fast one and secure his place in History. Well W, you did secure a place in History: you are the worst President we ever had. Im sure your hack book will be on the discount table next to Beck and O'Rielly at Borders next month.
