ObamaCare: Game On for Physicians
American Thinker, by Keith R. Jackson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/20/2012 9:53:34 AM

The health care fix is now set to be law. The federal government stepping into administration and provision of medical services is creating a lot of uncertainty and concern among those of us that provide health care service.(snip)The architects of ObamaCare expect non-physician health care providers, ostensibly working at local pharmacies, to be able to take some of the patient load. Those of us who work as physician subspecialists find this disturbing.

An excellent article for the most part. However it was not chosen by the people and still remains highly unpopular. It was rammed through by ONE political party following their own agenda, not the will of the people.

Perhaps, but when the ´people´ had a chance to do something about it, they shrugged and turned back to the fad of the week. You can´t force a people to be free.

This dictating will fail miserably and who in hell would want non-medical morons saying what kind of treatment I need. Do we
need barbers now to do surgery?

The people that go to the doctor now are those that get the service free. Those that pay can´t afford to.

According to my doctor, it´s not necessarily the money he´s concerned about, it´s the influx of 30 million new people and not enough doctors. He said he´s already used to the low reimbursement rates.

Already lost my doctor. He went to work for a consierge (sp?) practice where they don´t accept insurance. Actually makes sense from his viewpoint. Eventually we will have the two tier health system that Briton has one for the rich and powerful and one for everyone else.

Last night I read the passage in Atlas Shrugged Part 3, Chap 1 (have never read it btw, very relevant to our time) where Dr. Hendricks confesses his reason for going on "strike." I won´t quote it all here but it brought a tear to my eye as I thought of the hard work and dedication of these men and women who want to heal and help and serve with their minds but will simply go on strike.
It is a national tragedy these doctors and nurses are being asked to put their dedication, their learning, their hard work and diligence "at the disposal of men whose sole qualification to rule me was their capacity to spout the fraudulent generalities that got them elected to the privilege of enforcing their wishes at the point of a gun."

Look up the passage. Read the book if you haven´t, read it again if you have. It clears the mind and focuses the will.

I saw my Dr. a couple days ago and I felt sorry for him. Most of the time, his back was to me (he apologized twice)as he was putting everything into his computer. The office visit was three times as long as necessary which means he will most likely be seeing fewer patients daily. I wouldn´t blame him if he just quit. Thanks Bammy and all the jerks that voted for him.

Even the doctors are fragmented on this issue. Atlas Shrug Needs to be read by all.
Part of the problem - today a smaller part of the population can read at the level. Myself - I come to believe we are going to go over the cliff. When a society loses the will to realize the basics skills to balance the checkbook ala the nation´s budget - the moment of truth js upon us.

The core issue is bureaucrats ´practicing medicine without a license´ or the education.

So what happened to that law?

#11, but you know the AMA is a very liberal organization and represents a small percentage of doctors. I get sick of the MSM using them as a go-to source for what docs are thinking. Unfortunately, doctors haven´t organized into an alternative, powerful organization.

There is a very good reason that very few MD’s belong to the AMA; it is wildly out of line with the beliefs of most MD’s. Not only do they not belong, they wouldn’t even consider belonging.

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members. John Coté reports for the SF Chronicle: City nurses [who

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

The internal contradictions of the progressive alliance that dominates San Francisco have erupted into violence, and there is every sign it will continue. Conservatives have an opportunity if we are clever. (snip)I had not set foot on Hayes Street for at least a couple of decades when I went there last week. I was utterly shocked by the transformation, and more than that, by the hostility of some of the people I was with toward the newcomers. Twitter’s headquarters is nearby, as are other high tech firms, and around lunch time the sidewalks were crowded with brusque, expensively-dressed people hurrying

The Beat Goes On:
Opposing Obama Is Racist

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows
how to ´fix´ the Second Amendment
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/13/2014 9:13:10 AM     Post Reply
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
