DRBookDelusional Ravings of a Lunatic Mind -- Buy Now!

by Thomas W. Loker

This book is a compilation of articles from Tom Loker's popular blog, "The History and Evolution of Health Care Reform in America." Since the current issues of what we perceive as our health care system have their roots in the history of America, our political decisions, our economic decisions and medical and health related decisions, Tom often reviews these prime subject areas in his entertaining and always informative writings. Inside these pages are his best articles from 2011. They run the gamut of politics, economics, healthcare and other things that struck his fancy during the year. We think you find the articles interesting and thought provoking. In Tom's blog he doesn't try to tell you what to think nor to ask you to think the way he does. He stimulates his readers to get more information so they can form their own opinions. He hopes his own journey of discovery helps his readers in some small way. In the end, Tom has determined that he is a MugWump. Don't know what a mugwump is? Then there is one more reason to buy this book! Tom's writings will help you find out what you really are!

“I want to thank you for this post. It is principled and aware and it helps to trace the arc of interwoven tensions that we struggle to untangle, to get from intolerance to tolerance, from brutish inconsequence to useful collaboration, from tyranny to democracy... Thank you for standing for what makes democracy strong, for the informed and consequential civics that keeps the revolution of 1776 alive and breathing...
–J.E. Robertson, American

“Tom, very well written piece, even I could understand”
–Pam Mattingly-Greenwell, proud citizen of St. Mary’s County, Md

 

The History and Evolution of HealthCare in America -- Buy Now!

From the beginning of mankind, health and health issues have played a major role in life, but the issues and care have evolved enormously from the time when the first settlers set foot in America to the present. In The History and Evolution of Healthcare in America, author Thomas W. Loker provides a historical perspective on the state of healthcare and offers fresh views on changes to Obamacare.

Insightful and thorough, The History and Evolution of Healthcare in America offers a look at

what healthcare was like at the birth of the nation;
how the practice of providing healthcare has changed for both caregivers and receivers;
why the process has become so corrupt and expensive;
what needs to happen to provide both choice and effective and efficient care for all;
where we need to most focus efforts to get the biggest change;
what is needed to get control over this out-of-control situation.
Loker narrates a journey through the history of American healthcare—where we’ve been, how we arrived where we are today, and determine where we might need to go tomorrow. The history illustrates how parts of the problem have been solved in the past and helps us understand what might be necessary to solve our remaining problems in the future.
