My Personal Opinion On Health

- In my personal opinion the meaning of health is established by the individual. For some it might mean being completely disease free, but for others who are diagnosed with a chronic disease this might not be true. The fact that one might have a chronic condition does not necessarily automatically mean that the person can no longer possess the ability to be healthy. Health constitutes how the person is caring for themselves, regardless of their health history. It does not necessarily mean being disease free, but is determined by how involved the patient is in the healthcare decisions, in contrast to being passive as this can impact the state of wellbeing (Freidman, Bowden, & Jones, 2003, p.363...   [tags: Nursing, Health care, Health, Patient]

The Supreme Court 's Opinion

- The Supreme Court’s opinion in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius could have been an expansion of the powers of the federal government under the Commerce Clause. Instead, Roberts sought to redefine the penalty as a tax, so to avoid defining it as a power under Congress power to regulate interstate commerce. Although I agree with Roberts reasoning so as not to uphold the law under the Commerce Clause, I also find the redefining of the individual mandate as problematic. However, I believe the issue of Severability has become of great importance when one considers the implementation of the ACA has shown that by making the Medicare expansion optional it has impaired the inte...   [tags: United States Constitution]

My Opinion That People For The Most Part

- It is my opinion that people, for the most part, could and very well should be more critical. This is especially true when referring to the consumption of information. Unfortunately, many people do not share this viewpoint and shy away from being critical, because criticism, by it’s own definitions, carries negative connotations. So, people avoid being critical, for fear of being labeled “nitpicky” or a “downer” amongst friends and colleagues. This is unfortunate because it promotes a lack of critical thinking that can be every harmful, even on a smaller, more personal scale....   [tags: Thought, Critical thinking, Reasoning, Logic]
