My response to an Etsy RAnter...

Forbes says:

artzstuf says: Seems like much ado about nothing! The ruling pertains to lead paint in obviously paint on the walls of some older homes and apartments built prior to a certain date and some child items including toys and Halloween clothing that may contain a chemical harmful to children. Anything that will protect our children is a good thing in my opinion. I seriously doubt second hand items such as blankets,crafts in general,etc. will go up due to this and possible repercussions in lawsuits. Seems to me with a new president and administration and all the problems facing this country like how am I gonna pay next month's high propane bill?!, you all could find something better to stew about! Tomorrow I will be going to Hyde Park, FDR's former home for a meeting with our new senator of NY, Kirsten Gillibrand, with regard to greening upstate NY. I'll be sure to ask her if I need to be concerned about this law and issue! I think..NOT! lol.. Posted at 6:24 pm, January 25 2009 EST

Alternative Health as the Answer for expensive health care, for those with no health insurance and last resort when conservative treatments fail -article written by Ann REilly

Affordable Alternative Health and Aromatherapy as an Answer to Exhorbitant Medical Expenses or no Health Insurance!Alternative Healing explores Alternative Health options due to skyrocketing health costs, the many with no Health Insurance or as a last resort with failure of pills and doctor visits. Depression for one is a serious health concern facing many in the world today and for quite a few, pills and psychotherapy aren't cutting it! At a hundred dollars a pop, a doctor's visit is clearly not a way to go for many. $ 240. is the cost for a generic blend of depakote, a popular mood stabilizer, I for one was on to control my mood swings often associated with bipolar. Thank goodness I was on Medicaid lest I couldn't afford this! HOw about the many that can't afford it and are the working poor? Yes many do in fact work for minimum wage for places like Walmart, our biggest employer, but they offer no benefits especially medical. Despite the many hours some put in here, Walmart is notorious for keeping their employees below full time status so they can avoid sick leave,health insureance,vacation pay,birthday pay,vacations and the like that many other companies do pay! In fact it is so sad that Walmart even had to be pulled into court to pay insurance costs for their many employees! More
