Utah public lands managed?

What’s happening right now under our noses before we have a chance to stop. When I read this my brain goes dizzy with cognitive dissonance trying to understand such self serving, mendacious reasoning.

Admit it. Government support is needed for public projects.

Government support for private sector is not Socialism. We have little to fear when Gov partners with private sector to get things done the private sector could not do. These projects are NOT Socialism. They are, and have been for years, part of our History. Internet. Interstate. Space. Military. Water. Partnering is the only way these ideas come to fruition so we all benefit.

The real dark side is that we, taxpayers pay for the programs. But once done the private sector reaps the dollars. The Web was developed via R&D paid for by our tax dollars. We all benefit from this, but it’s the Amazon’s, Microsoft’s, Apples who become wealthy on the backs of taxpayers. Trucking is another case. The interstate was built for defense. But now trucking companies have use of this extensive road system maintained in part by our tax dollars.

This sort of partnership is Democratic Socialism. It works. Has worked and can work. It is NOT Socialist/Communist.

It should not be feared. What should be feared is when we are so scared of the word Socialism, we give in to that fear and add to the paralysis which has become prevalent.

Unseen signs of Cancer

In looking thru other fundraising posts and sites I noticed the most successful requests seem to be either about children or show people in distressing states of damage. We see children way too young to be dealing with Cancer: bald heads, IV poles following the everywhere, courageous smiles, parents tears, tubes seeming to come out of any orifice available, and all filled with Hope current med technology will pull them from the despicable hold of Cancer they fight day in and day out.

I’m a 62 yr, old male with Cancer, diagnosed in 2015, out of the blue as happens so often. Multiple Myeloma, a currently incurable Cancer, though very manageable if caught in time. We have a fundraising page on GoFundMe to help with the incredible expense Cancer carries. Including inability to work; trying to survive on SS disability; praying health or financial disasters stay at bay.

If you see me, there’s a good chance you wouldn’t realize I had MM. In my case what I have is serious, but almost wholly internal. The only external clue is the infusion port in my upper right chest, covered by my clothes. This is only a small sign for others unless I explain to them my MM.

For example: my right shoulder blade has been split by the more than 100 lesions which have infiltrated and eaten my bones as MM is a blood disease residing in the marrow in order to wreak the havoc from it’s out of control Darwinian mutation.

From my Bone Marrow transplant and the chemo used I have heart damage. I am left with app 65% of my former heart function. I’ve been told it’s gone. Kaput forever. Coming from someone who’s life has always been active, I am no longer able to summon the strength and ability once available to me. Frustration as well as hidden from view.

Chemo has also left me with neuropathy. Nerve damage irreversible. So I can walk ( with a cane ) but biking, hiking, athletics are no longer part of life. Neuropathy has also reduced, really stopped, my guitar playing. Fingers are not only weak but have a mind of their own.

Chemo has also depleted the energy I used to propel me thru athletics, marriage, raising kids, working my ass off to support those who depended on me.

There’s other unseen issues only I am aware of regularly. Chronic pain haunts me in every endeavor I undertake. The energy required to fight this in order to do anything can be immense.

The primary effect of all this is my hope for a retirement with energy to play with grandkids has been reduced greatly. All else pales when I ponder this.

I think that’s enough and hope I was able to make the point that not all diseases or stages of disease are immediately obvious.

If you can please consider donating to our cause, Incrementalism does work, and reduces donaters pain while ensuring we can share what we have with others.

Shared Pain is Lessened. Shared Joy is Increased.

Thank you from Sam & Deborah.
