The DNA Push

The last couple of years I have been noticing a push for getting your DNA done.  Some of the ideas for the push seem so well awesome.  Like find out were you come from maybe even find some little know family history.  Draws me heavily I might add.  For years I had always wanted to know am I really an American Indian, do I have Scottish or English like my grandmother said.  But as I matured I realize well I know who I am I am an American.  I mean if I was say 100% Scottish blood line would I really be Scottish if I have never set a foot there?

Anyway, that is not the true point of this post.  I am just very curious of the DNA push that is going on now.  There are programs for finding lost family members and yes you guessed it you give an DNA sample that is then entered into their database.  Of course, I agree with the law for collecting DNA of people arrested because being a noble citizen I believe you break the law you chose to give up your rights

There comes to mind that there is one more DNA for collection to give the average citizen some helpful knowledge about themselves and it is find out if you have an illness or health issue that you may not be aware of what a better way right to get an over all health checkup?  Well I can not help but wonder what is up with all this.  Then yesterday there was a member of our great leadership saying that he felt that our government should be set up to take care of all serve health care issues like cancer for one.  Which would seem logical except no government of people can afford that I believe it needs to be a change in the health care industry but listening to him I wondered is this the reason for getting more and more people to invest in their own DNA check.

They had a push on Fox Friends the other day were you type in the word Fox when ordering from one of the find your heritage sites.  I set and wondered I mean everyone on the set had their done and many were surprised when they turned out Swedish and not Scottish for instance.  So hearing this man talk about the need for government to take care of all the heavy health issue  I wondered are they collecting the DNA to give more results into their database of possible people who will need this kind of care somewhere down the road.  This would help them more cheaply argue their case before the house and senate.  Just a thought.

I am planning on staying away from it anyway.
