"it had evolved into a giant scheme to enrich the medical industrial complex".Do you know how much is costs to bring a medical device/drug to market? And, do you know what percentage of devices/drugs don't make it to market?."But I don't know how anyone could defend what our health care system was prior to the ACA".Just what WAS our system prior to the ACA? And what is it specifically NOW?
( permalink | suggest removal )
Nwar: "kicking people off their plans if they get sick and denying for pre-existing conditions.".There was ALWAYS a way to avoid pre-existing condition exclusions prior to the ACA. And people didn't get kicked off existing plans when they got sick. ."What we really need is Medicare for all -- with the power of population to negotiate drug prices, doctors' fees, hospital charges, etc.".Do you really think lower than actual cost Medicare reimbursement rates are the answer? Really? You have any experience in the field at all?
what 'heritage' is specifically celebrated by displaying the confederate flag?
Cliff - "Did the Confederate flag purchase a gun and shoot a bunch of people ?".Since you mention Hitler, I'd say no more than the swastika exterminated Jews (and others).
I find it best to shun Baptists.
Since you can look and act black without being black, what other characteristics of race exist that one could identify with?
"Why didn't they embrace Ms. Dolezal?".Well, I'm not 'the left,' but I don't think Jenner potentially falsified documents relating to his gender. Although, as a broader point, you (and Kool) make a fairly decent one. One major difference is that Jenner was open and honest about it. Dolezal not so much. The public tends to appreciate honesty. Incidentally, Dolezal apparently sued Howard U for discriminating against her because she is (was?) white. ." She obviously thought blacks are cooler than whites. Actually, they usually are. ".Oh? Do they, as a race, have scientifically proven lower body temperature than whites?
"Yet, going into the game experts were already questioning if the Cavs, somewhat depleted by injuries, could continue to play at the pace they had in the first three games".I'd say being down 40% of your starting lineup (and that 40% is two ALL-STARS) qualifies as a bit more than 'somewhat.'
"No, NUN, under NO circumstance would I blame those little girls.".I didn't say you did, Pack. I would agree the girls are blameless. And I would also agree that the parents shoulder the blame. ."seem to be gleeful in blaming the little girls, Josh, and the parents all due to what seems to be abject Christiphobia (an irrational fear of Christianity)".Pointing out the hypocrisy isn't Christiphobia. IF people are gleeful, yes, that would also be pretty despicable. But I don't seem to see it to the magnitude you do.
