    Which is why I am sure you will shortly rally to defend angelatc from someone naming her Angela in his post. You also may want to reread the posts in this thread belittling the "medical profession" (weren't you just pointing out sarcasm quotation marks...) as a bunch of profit-seeking monsters only interested in stringing people along to make a buck, dispensing pills and cashing big ole checks. This is not the first thread to do that, nor will it be the last. It's a pattern old as the forums themselves, so no, not projecting .

    I don't think it qualifies as an essay, but the shortest assessment would probably be... we're fucked. Or even just good old-fashioned... fuck.

    You know, I always seem to be on the wrong side of everything. This time, my choice of profession makes me the devil as well. It may shock you to learn that some people actually do get better after medical treatment! I know! I KNOW! Crazy! It might shock you to learn that not everyone in the "medical profession" is out there rubbing their hands together plotting to rob you. It might even shock you what a number of things wind up costing, and how much the providers are reimbursed by payers. It would certainly NOT shock most decent medical providers to know that there are a large number of very beneficial "alternative" treatments, and some of them wind up being incorporated into common practice. A good doctor is going to listen to you and then provide their expert guidance. That expertise should usually extend to diet (including supplements, discussions about pH, etc.) and to more natural cures that, at worst, do no harm. The strangest part to me is seeing a lack of animosity on the part of the physicians, nurses, administrative staff, etc., that I work with... towards those who advocate natural cures, yet seeing the hatred that those who advocate natural cures have towards "medical professionals." Most of you would still head straight to the ER to have a bone set, though, or if you thought you were having a heart attack. It's an odd puzzle. Then, once you were back on your feet, you would be back to demonizing an entire industry's worth of people. The medication-shopping used to be for painkillers only. Now you see people doctor-shopping for antibiotics, or because little Timmy's cast needs to come off before football practice in a couple of weeks ---- never mind that his arm will probably not heal properly if he gets it taken off too early. Oh and if Timmy's arm does heal warped, his parents will sue the first doctor. People stomp in and demand a certain brand-name drug, even if it obviously clashes with another condition the patient has, or just isn't the best treatment for them. I mentioned briefly about reimbursement. How much would you pay for someone to drive to your home --- even if they lived, say, 60 miles from you --- and give you a bath, tidy your home, take your vital signs, trim your nails, do your hair, take care of your laundry, etc.? If you said anything more than $30, you're ahead of most insurers. How about a nurse driving to your home to deal with a wound big enough to put both fists into, which is non-healing, and needs to be unwrapped, cleaned, measured, checked for signs/symptoms of infection (hint: one of those signs involves smell, so that nurse WILL be getting in there and taking a good, deep whiff), packed, wrapped, and any number of other fun things? If you said more than $31, you're ahead of Medicaid. If you said more than $115 or so, you're ahead of most commercial insurers. That includes supplies, by the way. It also assumes the insurer authorized the care, and in the case of Medicaid it assumes that the provider filled out a five-page questionnaire within 24 hours of admission, obtained the physician's order on a special form, printed out a plan of treatment on a different specific form, which was in turn reviewed and signed by an on-staff RN for accuracy and correct diagnosis coding... you get the idea. You don't even want to know what goes into being reimbursed by Medicare. So maybe the "all 'medical professionals' are greedy cockbags" can end, but it probably won't.

    The woman is absolutely correct. There is not a thing racist about it. Unless you call facts racist. She rightly calls upon people to take responsibility for their own actions. As I recall, that's a basic tenet of libertarianism. http://www.chron.com/life/mom-houston/article/72-of-black-babies-born-to-unwed-moms-data-1709669.php

    It's a messy day in the SEC altogether. Auburn and LSU are duking it out rather evenly at the moment. That A&M game tonight could be quite interesting.

    Can't begrudge them the win. Gators imploded --- and they weren't playing THAT well to start with. It's obvious this crew can't hack it at away games. There's still some intriguing talent coming up through the next few years, at least, but this is just not going to be "the year." Even if Florida wins out (which I do not see happening) the odds of winning the SEC are slim, which means any playoff hopes are about gone. It's a wacky year though. Maybe. Just maybe.

    People probably are gifting her clothing, plus she wears a lot of the same slacks over and over again. I'm not sure how I feel about this as a whole... hoping that Trump does not win, either, since it will start a rerun of orange tans and comb-overs for men, and unattainable runway looks in impractical colors with straight hair and smokey, glittery eye makeup for women.

    Well, the practice is still stopped. So, I guess that means there is no problem in the killing field called the Chicago inner city now. Case closed. All is well.

    We are all aware of what he proposed for the killing fields currently referred to as Chicago's inner city. I disagree with him on that. I think the best approach is to let gangs keep killing the hell out of each other. Soon there will be no more problem. Unfortunately though, some innocent bystanders are going to be hurt, but what the hay. /s

    Not really. Couple of injections, wrap her up with boning and a brace. That would be impossible to sit in, and obvious if she were to bend over, but standing up the whole time (partially obscured by a podium)? Doable.

    :rolleyes: Both support the Trans Pacific Partnership. Nothing but traitorous. Weld wants to gun-grab and he reiterated it not long ago. He also co-chaired the Council on Foreign Relations' Task Force on creating a North American Union. Is that the new definition of libertarian? Because I didn't think it was.
