    I don't hang out there much, but noticed this status update from a few friends this evening:

    xxxxx - believes that no one should die because they cannot afford health care, and nobody should go broke because they get sick. If you agree, please post this as your status for the rest of the day.
    Was there some effort by MoveOn or some similar group to do this today that I missed?

    I asked the person who posted it on my page where she got it; she said AFSCME.

    Thanks for the info, Linda.

    I don't do politics there. At least not yet. Maybe when the next election rolls around I'll change my mind.

    I keep it light as well, since the group is mostly made up of relatives on my spouse's side.

    None of my friends are stupid enough to send it to me.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    It was their "status" update, not sent directly to me.

    I'm going to post a counter to that by saying that I believe that if someone would rather spend their money on X-Box's, a bigger car, and flashier clothes than healthcare, my tax dollars shouldn't have to pay for it.

    oh well I do know some people who would do that . . . . but they would think twice knowing that I would have a few comments . . . .
