this study is huge. I don’t want to understate just what a landmark it is.

why do birth control pills require a prescription? Pregnancy is far more of a risk to health than BCP.
One can be morally opposed to BCP (I personally am not) but that is irrelevant to the question. I am (for example) morally opposed to alcohol use and smoking, but I would oppose a government ban. Or a ban on Big Gulps. So the issue is not the morality of the substance, but of the person. I am not opposed to guns, but am opposed to murder. Same issue.
Let’s put the focus where it belongs…
socialized medicine! Here is a peek into the future with Obamacare.
It’s pretty clear that these things are done to save costs. It’s endemic to a socialized medicine system. “Big Brother” gets to decide how to ration scarce goods–who lives and who dies. It’s all based on cost.
Now you might argue that services are rationed NOW based on ability to pay. Yes, that is to a large extent true, and the wealthy can afford to go somewhere else while us “regular” folk can’t. But it’s not some cloistered government lackey making the decision based on cost, and the patient has a say in it, even in the worst of conditions. Really, it’s quite different.
But let’s just kill the old and infirm and be done with it. Zyklon B gas will do the trick. National Socialism for everyone! I mean, what have the old and infirm ever done for me? It’s not like I personally will ever get old or infirm! And I bet there are some other groups I can think of including… It’s the “other” who is the problem and I don’t care about some purely theoretical other guy. Why does that make me want to grow a funny little mustache?
Let’s just say that if you’re old enough to retire or are disabled, you are just a drain on society (financially). Don’t pay taxes? No longer “contribute” financially? Buh-bye. The deficit would be gone in a flash (actually, in the time it takes to inhale).
That’s what this is. Don’t kid yourself or live in a lefty fantasy. I don’t mind disagreement, but at least be honest about things!
post on gun control. Yeah, it’s a little long, but suck it up you pansy! You should read it!
more and more attention. Good, he deserves it.
The bottom line is that Taubes is right. Sugar (and those things that immediately metabolize to it, like refined white flour) are a major problem. Don’t pay attention to the AHA and the government on issues of nutrition. They are just wrong.
You can keep your plan. Yeah, right.
Don’t tell it to starving student and their parents who are struggling to pay the bill…
is little question that legally it is incumbent upon Kagan to recuse herself from any SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare. I understand why she doesn’t want to and that Obama doesn’t want her to. She was a real player in that bill and now she wants to be in on the ruling as to whether it is constitutional. She’s a ringer.
But it’s not right, it’s not fair to have her participate.
