Wimar Witoelar Harus Meminta Maaf Kepada Persyarikatan Muhammadiyah dan yang logo ormasnya dicatut dalam banner buatannya. Tulisan tak pantas juga menjadi tagline di banner buatannya. Saya pribadi dibesarkan dari kultur persyarikatan yang mengedepankan ilmu dan budi tidak akan terprovokasi tapi saudara Wimar yg menurut saya sudah berumur harus menunjukkan dirinya pantas ditauladani bukan menjadi provokator yang sangat buruk bagi iklim demokratisasi di Indonesia. Satu hal juga terlalu naif menyandingkan lambang Ormas ISLAM yang netral bersanding dengan bendera Parpol. – with Shona and UdiN

Look around you. In the 7th Cavalry, we got a Captain from the Ukraine. Another from Puerto Rico. We got Japanese, Chinese, Blacks, Hispanics, Cherokee Indian, Jews and Gentiles — all American. Now here in the States some men in this unit may experience discrimination because of race or creed, but for you and me now, all that is gone. We’re moving into the valley of the shadow of death, where you will watch the back of the man next to you, as he will watch yours, and you won’t care what color he is or
by what name he calls God. Let us understand the situation; we’re going into battle against a tough and determined enemy. I can’t promise you that I will bring you all home alive, but this I swear, before you and before Almighty God: when we go into battle, I will be the first one to set foot on the field, and I will be the last to step off. And I will leave no one behind. Dead or alive, we will all come home together. So help me God.” (Let.Col. Hal Moore)

On June 15, 1944, following intensive naval gunfire and carrier-based aircraft bombing, the Fifth Fleet’s Task Force 52 lands the Marines on Saipan, which is the first relatively large and heavily defended land mass in the Central Pacific to be assaulted by US amphibious forces. Among the ships firing gun support were battleships USS Tennessee (BB-43) and USS California (BB-44). 

The island is secured on July 9.

Catatan Isu Kesehatan.

Sebagai praktisi pelayanan kesehatan saya cuma bisa komentar, Saat dari dulu Jokowi mengangkat ‘Kartu Sehat’ (Sehat tapi dominan hanya kuratif) untuk Maskin sampai tadi malam saat debat. Apa bedanya dengan saat ini?cuma mau ngrubah label kartu BPJS Kesehatan? Wong sejak Januari 2014 roadmap pembiayaan kesehatan untuk masyarakat miskin yang ditanggung negara sudah ada (BPJS Kesehatan PBI bagian dari sistem SJSN). Kalau hanya sekedar ngganti kartu ya semua kandidat saya rasa bisa. Yang mestinya kalau mau jadikan isu ini keren adalah coba evaluasi INA CBGs, perluas akses pemeraatan tenaga dan faskes dan tingkatkan kepersertaan peserta mandiri yang sehat. Padahal PDI-P punya Rieke Dyah Pitaloka yang tahu bener sistem ini dan UU SJSN diketok di era presiden Megawati. Sayangnya isu ini tak lebih hanya cuma sebatas GANTI KARTU saja. Padahal semua praktisi pelayanan kesehatan menantikan isu yang lebih keren.
