Let’s dispense with the doom and gloom and discuss how to respond to the craziness going on without being infected by it. What actions can you take? How can you live your best life when all around you is insane?
A way to reduce the stress in your life, and save yourself a bit of money. Apply the principles of redundancy, resiliency and recoverability in your own life.
- Why to do it – hurricane kills power for a week, truckers strike and grocery store doesn’t get deliveries, bank is closed and your credit card got melted
- How to do it – a little at a time, a bookshelf in the spare room, buy canned goods on two for one, toss a $20 in an envelope and then ignore it, use those coupons
- Benefits – you don’t stress out when it starts pouring rain right before you were going to the store – relax, go look in the guest room and get some green beans; you can help your neighbor who just got laid off and is freaking out; peanut crop failed and peanut butter prices will be high for the next 6 months? No worries, you have a year’s supply
The Free Market for Health Care
Obamacare is a disaster, yes, but it’s not the final word. The free market WILL win out, and it will be not just okay, but awesome! There are already examples of people going around the system for their healthcare. American ingenuity and drive for profit WILL give us the solution, much more rapidly than Obamacare can destroy things. Have faith, read the articles linked here. Think about how Lasik and Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Dentistry all started out as rich people things, and now almost anyone can afford them. That will happen with regular care, too.
