Sorry to take you back to the airplane trip and the lessons it teaches once more. But there is more to be gleaned from what I observed as it relates to how our government works for or against the people. What you see on the airplane is what we see in the physician’s office. That’s why it so important to re-address the subject. Bear with me.
For example, how long will we have to hear an explanation of how to work a seatbelt? Is there anybody over the age of two that doesn’t know that you have to “lift the handle to release the lock?” My 18 month old grandson can take his dad’s iphone, push the on key, unlock the phone, and choose an app. I know that he’s a genius but this seatbelt lecture is a waste of time.
The seatbelt lectureÂ is given, not because someone in the federal government truly cares for the people it serves and is afraid that someone won’t know how to get out of their seat, but becauseÂ it placates the federal bureaucracy that created the need to justify someone’s position.
So the attitude becomes,”Let’s write regulations that cover every aspect of people’s live’s so that no one will ever die, and most importantly, no one will ever be able to blame us for their demise. After all , we told them how to get out of their seat, didn’t we?”
This attitude unfortunately permeates every industry where the government places it’s fingers–including your physician’s office. So an HIV test must be performed on every pregnant patient whether they have had illicit sexual behavior or not. If you refuse, then you are labeled as one of those “non-compliant patients that thinks she knows more than the federal government.” And how can that be?
