I feel as you do bluesky63. In Canada they decided if doctors know you have MS, they can't even test you for CCSVI. They seem to be taking this 'wait and see' approach. MS patients can't even pay to see if they have CCSVI. The wimps are dragging their feet.
I like the analogy; what if your house was on fire. Would you rather try
to put it out or would you wait
for the fire trucks and see
what happens when you wait !!!!
It seems to be mostly one of 3 things. 1. Ignorance 2. Stupidity or 3. Naivety
Ignorance is easy to fix, it just means you've never had the opportunity to learn. People should not be offended by being known as ignorant. Everybody is ignorant about something. I don't know how to pilot the space shuttle, I'm ignorant about that subject.
Now if I was taught how to do it and I just can't understand (get it), yea, I'm probably stupid. If I was taught how but rejected it, that would make me naive.
So when you think about it, by calling someone stupid, you're actually doing them a favor. Otherwise they might go thru life not knowing something, your giving them the opportunity to change
Let me be the first to do the foot-draggers a favor, YOUR STUPID
Notice how I was nice by not calling them ignorant (even though that's what I meant).
It's the naive ones we really need to worry about. There are a few in that category. I'd like to tell them that to their face ! Sure, we would debate and argue, and I would win.
