Probably the best video I've seen to date on the importance of LGBT cultural competent health care. It's on that home page just scroll down a little bit. I would embed it here if I could.
Bernice Redmon wanted to become a nurse but was refused entry to nursing schools in Canada. Instead, she went to St. Phillip Hospital Medical College in Virginia, U.S.A. and graduated with her nursing diploma in 1945. When she returned to Canada that same year, she became the first Black Nurse allowed to practice in public health after getting a job at the Nova Scotia Department of Health. She went on to become the first Black woman appointed to the Victorian Order of Nurses in Canada.

You can learn more about Canadian black nurses histories at this link.

I do love a few of them very much but the rest remind me of the differences at the core level between our two views on politics & government.

The subject line read: If you think health care is expensive now...

"A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul." --George Bernard Shaw

"No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session." --Mark Twain (1866)
"Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But, I repeat myself." --Mark Twain

"Talk is cheap - except when Congress does it."

"When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators." --P.J. O'Rourke

"Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner." --James Bovard (1994)
Since I included the subject line I feel I'm intitled to respond to it: the US has the highest cost of health care (per person) of ALL industrialized countries, by a long shot and it is the ONLY industralized country without public health care. I now leave conservatives to do the math. And yes, I pointed that out ot my mother. Gutsy or foolish?
