When did Doctors become the Bad Guys?

When did Doctors become the bad guys? President Fuck Up says that doctors are performing unnecessary procedures just to collect higher reimbursements from insurance companies. What a laugh! Fraud does indeed occur, but when it does, it is big news. What that means is that it is extremely rare.

And, what is so terrible about health insurance as it now stands? My health insurance has enabled me to be able to afford to save the lives of my children and wife, and myself, on numerous occasions. The insurance companies are good, not bad.

The fact that some people have no insurance is what is bad. This can be remedied by congress, but they want to take a sledge hammer to fix something that only takes a quarter of a turn with a screwdriver. They want to dismantle the entire system of health care, including how doctors perform their jobs, and how much they can be paid, when the market place can handle that much more efficiently than any government regulation could.

As for me, I would be uncomfortable getting medical care from a doctor who drives a 1992 Pinto to work, and has plastic stacking chairs on bare linoleum floors in his waiting room. He had damn well better be driving at least a $50,000 car, and living in a nicer house than me. That means he is good at what he does. When I am sick, or a member of my family is sick, I want the most competent help I can find, not the cheapest.

St. Augustine on Curiosity ***

There is another form of temptation, even more fraught with danger. This is the disease of curiosity... It is this which drives us to try and discover the secrets of nature, those secrets which are beyond our understanding, which can avail us nothing and which man should not wish to learn.

- St. Augustine

***10/5/2013 - Note: this is probably a misquote, for the purpose of defaming St. Augustine.  I published it without any research as to its veracity, and I regret it.  He is a revered figure in Christianity and western culture, and whether we subscribe to his philosophy and views or not, everyone deserves at least to be described accurately. - James Carr.

Baltimore A Significantly Deadlier City Than Chicago

Interesting thread of comments from this article.

If blacks really thought their lives mattered, they wouldn't be killing each other so much.

Giving authorities information about crimes in the inner city is dead man walking. The citizens have to change the mindset and adopt the ideology that Neighborhood watch working with law enforcement is the only way to fix the problem. The cultural mindset needs to change before the murders will stop.

I couldn't agree more. White people CAN'T solve this problem for the black community. Only black people can break this suicidal trend and, frankly, I don't think they have any leaders bold or strong enough to lead them. At some level, you'd think they have to understand that shooting each other, having kids without responsibility, not improving their educational achievement and blaming others for their own poor dec…

Concerned Citizen Seeks to End LOL Abuse

In response to my friend's email, in which he used the phrase "LOL" (which means Laughing Out Loud for the web-illiterate), my friend received this:

I have to start off by asking you if you actually LOL’d there, or if you are just typing that for the sake of typing it? Too many times in life people type LOL when they didn’t really LOL. Those three letters are losing all of their meaning because people just throw them around with no thought to the damage they could be causing. People type LOL for things that aren’t funny. Then you have a bunch of people going through life thinking they are funny, when in reality they aren’t funny. Someday when they actually meet face to face with a person who has been typing LOL to them in emails and text messages, they will say something that they think is funny, but the person won’t LOL. So the person will try harder to get that LOL, but lets be honest, when you try for the LOL all you get is worse jokes. So he doesn’t get the LOL…
