    TODDLER DIES in Michigan - http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/11/health/michigan-enterovirus-68-death/index.html

    The parents I've talked to in the church and in the public arena has one huge concern right now, and it is this multi-phased form of the Enterovirus. By multi-phase, I mean that some forms of it are not only causing death from the respiratory form of it, but one form is leaving children paralyzed.

    As a parent, right now, here in America ... which disease causes you the most concern when it comes to your children as well as yourself - Ebola or the fast-spreading Enterovirus 68?

    You choices are far too biased and limited to reply. You need to give more choices and balance the choices. Everything is negative, no positives or middle ground choices.

    Okay?

    That's fair....so give me an example of what you would have tendered that are balanced? I appreciate good feedback.

    However my question was about which of the two health concerns scared you, as a parent most. So please give me balanced and positive ways to ask. God bless!

    No, you would never accept any suggestion I would make, so I will not enter that silly game. Look over your poll and maybe you can figure it out.

    However, you did not give anyone any opportunity to say they believe that the health care system is doing a good job, or the best they can. Everything was "do not" there was no do's or does to check in the poll. It appears you are only looking for negative replies that will feed you bias.


    There have been other viruses in the last few years that have sparked great fears. You did not mention them or give any chance for a person to do so.

    First of all, I would accept your feedback! Don't be so fearful and judgmental! I am trying to change how I come across, really! If I am writing to you, that means I respect you and have not placed you on ignore! That is a good sign! Actually, I enjoy the spiritual and worldly bantering with you! :smilewinkgrin:

    Secondly, the healthcare system is not doing a great job, but being so closely attached to Obama; I can clearly understand why you would say what you said.

    Third, while you are correct that there are many viruses in our world, these are the two most prominent right now, and worthy of discussing.

    I think I see why you didn't like my questions. I was a tad bit negative, and definitely conservative in my approach! Next time I will try to put myself in the shoes of a liberal, and maybe the questions I pose will be more user friendly! What do you think? :wavey:
