I had a chance to see the new Michael Moore film - Sicko - last night and can't stop thinking about it.

Say what you will about the controversial filmmaker... he's very good at what he does. By the end of the movie, even his biggest critics are left to wonder why America is the only developed country in the world that doesn't provide basic health care for its citizens.

He exposes many of the lies we have been told by the government, insurance companies and medical establishment and you can't help but walk away from the theater feeling as though you've been cheated.

But is it the government cheating us? Or are we cheating ourselves by not standing up for our own interests. This, to me, is the most fascinating question.

Why is it we are so complacent when it comes to others suffering? How can we sit by and watch our neighbors and friends lose their homes and sometimes even their lives because they don't have access to proper care? Why are we not demanding something be done? And what does this say about us as a people?

See the movie... and then I'd love to hear your ideas on what we can do.
