Sickness Unto Death Part VII: Health Care -- Right or Responsibility? ~ By John MacWillie, Ph.D.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/26/2017 05:54 PM
Murphys, CA...The United States Declaration of Independence declares "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Without good health, where is the possibility for the pursuit of happiness? As the Declaration's primary author, Thomas Jefferson, would later write, "The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government." (Jefferson 1809).

Mornings with the One Percent Premiers July 3rd!

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/26/2017 09:46 AM
Arnold, CA...We are excited to announce "Mornings With The One Percent™" a new, live, three hour, news & entertainment program will premier on July 3rd. It will run for three hours weekday mornings. The premise for the name is this: As many of you may know the USDA rated all the counties in the US on a livability scale on climate, natural amenities, etc. Calaveras came in as the 14th best county in the whole nation to live and all of our local counties Tuolumne, Amador & Alpine all rank high enough to easily fall into the top one percent of the over 3,000 counties in the US. So even when bad things happen here (which they do) at the end of the day we have a lot to be thankful for as we live in some of the greatest areas literally on the planet. We may not all be a Buffett, Gates or a Bezos but we are part of the one percent because we call this area home.
