Our family isn't exposed to a lot of media. I listen to NPR a little bit each day and that is primarily where I get any kind of national or international news. With dial-up
internet, I don't bother reading any online
news publications unless I come across an interesting
link to check out.
Yesterday while listening to NPR, I couldn't
help but be amazed at how our government
is wasting more time and money by holding a
hearing to find out who is responsible
for the lousy job that was done with the new health
care web site.
How does that make things move forward?
I really don't get it. It is kind of like if one of the children leaves
the front door open in really cold weather and I just stand there
by the open door calling each child
down one at a time asking if they
were the ones that left it open. In the
meantime, the house is just getting
colder and colder.
Wouldn't it be better to problem solve? When something isn't right,
first let's figure out a better solution. Perhaps the people responsible
for making the health care web site simply failed. So what? Learn from the mistakes, move
forward and make it right.
I sure don't want my children to worry about doing something challenging because they
might fail or make mistakes.
That is learning at its best.
The blame game doesn't help anyone.
