Obamacare May Bite You
At The Vet’s Office

CBS Miami, by Eliott Rodriguez

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 3/12/2013 6:52:05 PM

Pet owners listen up: You may want to start saving more money for veterinarian care this year. The reason goes all the way back to Washington and an unintended consequence from medical reform. Dog owner Lori Heiselman was surprised where her veterinarian posted a warning on Facebook. The notice read: “Because medical equipment and supplies will be going up in cost, that extra expense will have to passed on to the customers.”

Comments:
How many vets will be put out of business because they won´t be able to afford the higher cost of dual use devices unless they pass on those costs to their clients? Can we say 0bama wants to kill your family pet?

I know a seriously Democrat crazy cat lady (down from 25 to 19 cats at last report) who is not going to be happy with this. How WILL she blame it on the Republicans?

Obama didn´t just want death panels for humans- he wanted to destroy your pets health care also. You think if he did not care about people did you think he would care about animals. The cost of bringing a pet to a veterinarian can run far more than you your own doctor visit, assuming you have insurance.
Obama cares only about increasing the size of Government, spending your tax money, and increasing your taxes to pay for all his delusions.

Yay! Obamacare sure is helping middle class families! Glad we passed the bill so we could find out all the devastating, absurd, economically crushing consequences.

We might as well face facts. This administration is going to bleed us dry so he can give everyone inferior "free" medical care. It will only be a matter of time before our paychecks will be deposited straight into obama´s bank account. Then king obama will send us back what he thinks we need. Between the SCOTUS and the idiots who voted for the boobs in DC we don´t stand a chance. Life as we knew it is over.

It´s going to bite everyone in the arse. We who have been paying attention since the obscene bill was being concocted, like the witches´s brew, have known this.

Dang those dopes in the Repub "leadership" for not fighting for Liberty, for the Republic, for US.

Betsy McCaughey showed up on FOX with her copy of the "affordable care act", stuffed with post-it notes and fatter by the week as she studied and dissected it.

All the information and more has been available. If this fight had been had during the last election things would have been different. I am certain.
All Romney had to do was say I WAS WRONG.

water under the bridge.

But fight on we must.

CONGRATULATIONS MIAMI!! Not only did you vote FOR this, ya´ll repeated your mistake and voted for it again in 2012.

We tried to tell you! But no....you were all dazzled by promises of free taxpayer funded freebies. If you voted for Obama and his cohorts of socialists, you forfeitted ANY right to complain about the results now. Elections have consequences and you all made that bed for all of us.

As the Obama Depression deepens, any animal that cannot provide a meal, or ingredients for one (eggs, milk etc.) will have to be sacrificed. Muslims don´t like dogs, and cats are too independent. Don´t you just love the Boy Tyrant?

When the the obamabots who do take their pets tto the veterinarian and see how expensive it has become, they will just surrender the pets to shelters, or worse. Why don´t democrats ever, ever, ever think things through?

There are some ways you might be able to save on vet care. For instance, if you have a pet with hyperthyroidism, you know that the tapazole (generic methimazole) is not cheap. Not all states require vets to give you a prescription to fill at a lower cost elsewhere but vets can be persuaded to do so--find a vet who will. (See http://www.zzcat.com/CRF/supplies/#Refuse ) I use Walgreen´s for our cats´ prescriptions and use a store prescription card to get an even better deal--it gives me methimazole at less than half the usual price. Ask your vet to write the prescription to enable you to refill when you want (therefore allowing you to stock up before shortages begin occurring).

I also buy my LRS for fluid administration at Walgreen´s--a case of 12 @ 1000cc for less than $30. Go to link above and scroll up for info on online sites and other info re fluids and other CRF supplies.

Winged infusion sets, needles and syringes may be difficult to obtain sometimes. Although South Carolina permits the purchase of such supplies without a prescription, many pharmacies have a policy against it. If you don´t want or can´t get a prescription for those supplies, you´ll find sites which will sell them to you IF your state permits it (like Thrivingpets.com, where you can also buy essential Azodyl or the preferred Renadyl for your CRF pets).

If you need more info, drop me an e-mail at this anonymizer account: forcer-64139@mypacks.net

Just so folks know, there is health insurance for pets. The one we use is VPI, but there are others. The premiums are not inexpensive, and the copays exist, so those without extra money may not be able to afford this type of insurance. It serves us well in the long run as we use it for our pet bird, and we can afford to buy this insurance.

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad. First, there was the now infamous “sex-jihad” fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a “martyr,” deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

The soldier who opened fire at Fort Hood army base on Wednesday has now been identified as Ivan Lopez, a 34-year-old married father who had just moved to Texas with his wife and young daughter three weeks before the shooting. Lopez previously served in the Army National Guard in Puerto Rico and did one four-month tour of duty in Iraq occurred in 2011. He was not wounded in action while serving overseas, but self-reported a traumatic brain injury upon his return to the U.S.

   

 



 
Ezekiel Emmanuel´s Reaper Curve
American Thinker, by Fred N. Sauer    Original Article
Posted By: ScarletPimpernel- 4/1/2014 8:08:13 AM     Post Reply
Ezekiel Emanuel has written extensively, before and after he helped draft ObamaCare, about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

It is a tender, natural and intimate portrait which shows, for the first time, something of the personality of young Prince George. Released on his first Mothering Sunday, this official portrait – in a relaxed style perfectly reflecting the Duke and Duchess’s very modern approach to Royalty – depicts the eight-month-old as a curious, affectionate toddler, gazing into the eyes of the family’s beloved Lupo. George seems devoted to the cocker spaniel and, judging by the adoration on Lupo’s face, the sentiments are returned.

You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S.

For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House. The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
