Did Kate Middleton Use the
NHS? Of Course Not

National Review, by Charles C.W. Cooke

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 7/25/2013 7:53:37 AM

Naturally, Kate Middleton opted out of Britain’s “world class” National Health Service for the delivery of her baby. According to the Daily Express, a suite at the private Lindo Wing of London’s St. Mary’s hospital costs £6,265 per night — and this “excludes consultants’ fees.” Middleton’s total bill is expected to come to around £12,000 ($18,500). A poll conducted by ICM revealed that “37 per cent of the British public think that she should be having her firstborn on the National Health Service, believing it would send a powerful symbol if the new third in line to the throne

Honestly, I don´t blame her a bit. Nor do I blame politicians who send their children to private schools, but I do get very angry when they fix it so that the average tax payer can´t afford to send their children to a good school.

In the mid 1990´s I was offered a job working in London. The offer came with all sorts of perqs, but the one they were most proud of was the insurance for private medical consultants. I was like, huh? Health care is free, no? They said, yes, of course, but we do not want our employes subjected to that system -- we want our employees to be well-cared for. I noted they didn´t call them "Doctors" but consultants. Fortunately, I never needed either the private or the public health care while I was there, so I cannot comment on the quality of either.

Well of course she didn´t. She could afford better. That would be like the rest of us accessing free care in a ghetto clinic. If we can afford better health care, then we get it. Besides, not many babies born today will be a future king. As for the rest of us, I just wish we had the same medical care access as the president, senators, congressguys and gals. And for free!

Of course she SHOULD have had her baby on the NHS. If it is good enough for the 99% it should be good enough for Kate and son. The fact that she didn´t does not say much for the Royal Family.

#8, I would have to disagree. It was not the Royal Family which foisted the NHS off on the populace of Britain. You would have a point if this was the grandchild or great grand child of the Prime Minister being born, since the Prime Minister is in a position to do something about the NHS (either force its improvement, or abolish it).

The same thing will happen in the USA after Obamacare goes down the tubes, with the liberal Democrats blaming the Republicans, and then moving the country into a single payer healthcare system that resembles the UK´s National Health Service. Once that happens, there will be a privately run first class health care delivery system for the rich and famous who can afford to pay for those services, with everyone else thrown into an inferior and underfunded healthcare delivery system run by the government.

#9 nails it. In an autobiography about the late King George VI, he was very much against the welfare garbage that was instituted after the war. But there was nothing he could do to stop it from being pushed through by the Marxists in charge at that time. Sound familiar?

Kate and William have their heads on very straight regarding their child.

#18, many of us in America prefer to have our babies born in a better environment than the hallway of a filthy, overcrowded hospital. So we do what we can afford. And just who is making a big fuss over the "royal baby"? Why, it´s the media, that´s who. I haven´t met one person who has commented on this birth, other than to say she finally had it.

Have an American born and raised friend who has lived in London for 25 years. She was quite proud of the fact that she did not pay a dime to deliver her daughter. But of course, she was lined up in a ward with several other women, no privacy and you were lucky if someone came around in time to literally catch your baby as it was born. She was horrified that I paid $1300 out of pocket for all 9 months checkups and a C-section (and a private room). I´d pay it again! They really are brainwashed over there. The ´free´ care is garbage.

Man Cuts Open Dead Porcupine in

A Maine man in search of a valuable mineral cut open a dead porcupine on the side of the road and unexpectedly pulled out its baby. Jared Buzzell, of Lisbon, says he was searching for wild mushrooms Thursday when he saw a porcupine get hit by a car in Minot. Buzzell says he´d heard that a valuable mineral deposit used in Chinese medicine formed in the stomachs of porcupines. He then cut open the dead porcupine to search for the mineral and instead found the baby. He tells WMTW-TV he cut the umbilical cord and thought the baby porcupine was dead until he started

Denton’s name should be known by every American. In captivity he gave something beyond the last full measure of devotion, if that is possible. His is a story of almost unbelievable endurance, courage and patriotism. Here is a short course courtesy of the Denton Foundation that I saved a while back: In June 1965, he began a combat tour in Vietnam as prospective Commanding Officer of Attack Squadron Seventy-Five.

A spectacular Roman Catholic church in Syracuse, NY is about to become the Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary. Holy Trinity Church, established in 1891, is a stunning piece of Gothic-style architecture with glorious stained glass windows depicting the life of Christ. It was closed in 2010 when the Catholic diocese there blamed a declining number of priests and a population shift from the cities to the suburbs. St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church took over ownership of the building, and it was registered with the Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board. In 2012, St. John’s petitioned the preservation board to sell the

The Environmental Protection Agency says a rule it proposed this week merely clarifies its existing authority over the nation´s waterways. Republicans say it´s "the biggest land grab in the history of the world," as House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., called it. There is some certainty about the EPA´s rule defining the waters of the United States -- the buzz it has generated is not going away any time soon. The EPA, in conjunction with the Army Corps of Engineers, says the proposed rule would clarify which streams, rivers, wetlands and other waterways are within its regulatory jurisdiction.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.
