I am Shocked... Shocked to Find Gambling in this Establishment.

I have a fabulous idea. Let's let the government take over ALL of health care and let's take decision-making in medicine away from individuals and give it to people following protocols designed by committees. That should do really well.


  1. Hey 9-11 howcome my previous comments vanished into the semeniferous Ether???
    in one I solved the Lindburger kidnapping, Einsteins Unified Fields Theory, and A-habs Razor.
    Oh yeah, the cure for cancer,
    Might wanta hang on to that one.
    And can you remember a single memorable quote from "Ghost Busters"??
    No "We Need a Bigger Boat"
    "Luco Brazzi sleeps with the Fishes"
    "I feel the Need, the Need, For Speed!"

    and if you don't recognize those as from "Jaws" "the Godfather", and the greatest movie since Marconi invented TV, "TOP GUN" you need to get a Penis,
    I mean a life.
    Seriously, was there ever a bigger waste of Comedic talent than "Ghost Busters"?
    Umm except for the 2011 Georgia Bulldogs.


  2. don't know doc, have had a few vanish like that....

    and you ARE all smack all the time... gotta admire that. it really is your trademark.

  3. Government is the ideal director of medicine. Politicians are thoughtful, caring, and altruistic. They devote their lives to helping others.

    Contrast this to physicians, who spend half their lives learning diagnosis and complex, delicate procedures, with the intent of charging sick people for these services.

  4. I never thought I'd admit to being grateful for having to have a surgery, but I'm almost happy my hip needs replacing now because I'm deadly afraid Obama and his minions would consider me irrelevant and deny me my hip replacement.

  5. Because certainly my lovely, humanitarian insurance company never interferes in anything my doctor wants for me. Oh, wait, I don't have prescription drug coverage and my inherited high cholesterol is charging hard for 300. But I do feel lucky to have insurance, just in case I get hit by a bread truck before my stroke arrives.

  6. Dear Anonymous,
    Shitty insurance companies fail and shitty insurance company employees can be fired. Shitty government run programs? Shitty government employees?

  7. Shitty insurance companies make billions and shitty insurance company employees get promoted, and you know it.

  8. CannedAm,
    you can at least sign your name. and you are insane. I mean really insane. not psychotic, but delusional. honestly, seek help, I'm not lauding insurance companies, I'm saying that the government would be worse. I'm not saying we don't have problems with insurance, we do, mainly because they are not allowed to sell INSURANCE, without footing the bill for people who don't even pay premiums. so fuck off. really.

  9. Oh, so sorry. I wasn't aware I was delusional. I thought I was just someone who saw their previous insurance go from $444/month to $555/month in one year, then changed to a new plan at a new company that offers no prescription drug coverage. They will cover diabetic medications and one kind of chemo. All this while watching my father battle prostate cancer for five years, covered for proton beam therapy, prostate oncology specialists, three kinds of chemo, Provenge, blood transfusions, and massive amounts of painkillers, all by Medicare, all with no trouble, until his death two months ago.

    That's what I was thinking about.

  10. and who pays for Medicare and is it losing money or stable? and I could ask the same about our economy. the trouble with spending other people's money is eventually they run out of it. even, drum roll, the RICH! dolt.

  11. Ah, the slippery slope. And another round of ad hominem. Thanks, visiting has been lovely.

  12. Don't cross the streams.
