    I'd be willing to accept that if there were threads started by you or anyone else that was critical of those actions.

    You have yet to show me that was in the case while claiming to be objective.

    Great Moments in Socialized Medicine

    "This was my heart, my choice and my health," said Danny Williams this week. Williams isn't just any heart patient, however. He's the Premier of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and he had heart surgery, not at the local hospital under CanadaCare, but in Miami.

    If Canada's health care is so great, why did Williams travel 2,500 miles for surgery? Because "I did not sign away my right to get the best possible health care for myself when I entered politics." In other words, socialized medicine leaves something to be desired. Namely, "the best possible care."

    Doctors in Canada advised him that the only way to repair a heart valve problem was through a full or partial sternotomy, which would require breaking bones. However, when he was referred to Miami's Mount Sinai Medical Center by a fellow Canadian practicing cardiology in New Jersey, he found that he could be treated with only an incision under his arm. This procedure "was not offered to me in Canada," he said.

    Notwithstanding the superior care he received under a system that is at least somewhat based on the free market, Williams still declared his support of Canadian medicine, saying, "I have the utmost confidence in our own health care system." Actions speak louder than words, Mr. Williams. Furthermore, if ObamaCare passes, where will other wealthy Canadians go for health care?

    I never claimed to start a thread on the subject. That is your bar to be met, I have however made the same statement numerous times. I guess that I should start one just to shut you up.

    I never claimed to be objective either. At least I admit it, unlike you. I lay blame at the feet of both parties - while you only ever blame one, despite being shown otherwise.

    Show me one time that I claimed to be objective on the matter. You won't, because you are a coward and lack the intestinal fortitude to back up your statements. I have asked you before to back up several accusations that you made against me using my own statements - and you have failed to do so. I eageraly await your typical non-action on the matter.

    I have no idea what your post was supposed to prove. I've certainly never argued that people who can afford it do go to the states for medical treatment, just as many Americans come to Canada for prescriptions. My point is, you already have taxpayer funded medical system if you receive a medical plan as part of your employment and don't pay taxes on it. You just pay twice as much as anyone else in the world.

    Likely that his point was that the procedure would have been covered by a person's insurance. The recovery was quicker, with less scarring, less pain, lower complication risk, and fewer hospital days required.

    The requirement of having a sternotomy vs. a laparoscopic procedure is quite huge. No different than a laparoscopic procedure vs. open appy, open cholecystectomy, open hernia repair, open Nissen fundoplication, etc...,

    Sadly we do pay more, and there are many reasons for it. However, government-run health care does NOTHING to reduce the cost of healthcare. The same will be true in the United States when it comes.

    You may well be correct Sharkie, I know your medical knowledge far surpasses mine. Why then does your per capita medical care in the US almost double Canadas and nearly all the rest of the world?

    That was thankfully from the Newt Gingrich led congress and "The Contract with America" how do you liberals forget that?

    How also do you deny that the Bush administration tried to reign in Fannie and Freddie as early as 2001, here is a link I'm sure you won't watch it because it's truth. And there is plenty more out there.

    Liberals, listen up;

    I am not trying to demean you or say that you are stupid. It is not your fault (well kinda) that you believe in the things you do or have voted blindly the way you have but hopefully won’t anymore.

    The left (liberals, Democrats) have been in power (control) for over 90% of our history as a country. I’m not sure you realize this; actually I know you don’t realize this. They have been running the Government for most of the time since the end of the revolutionary war. They started WW1, WW2, Korea and Vietnam and Jimmy Carter helped overthrow the Shaw of Iran.

    The left is the ruling elite. There is a long perpetrated myth that Republicans are the rich. This is a lie. This is one of the first lies the left uses. The left have the best and most experienced spin-doctors in the business; they have been perfecting their craft for 200 years. They have the majority of the major media on their side. They also have idiots from Hollywood, the actor tards (most never went past high school) and idiots from MTV.

    Obama has brought the corrupt Chicago political machine to Washington. He has surrounded him self with criminals and tax cheats and changes the way the Government runs. WTF is a Czar? We have like 19 of them. A czar is actually a position of royalty and our constitution prohibits that. Some one not elected cannot make law or policy.

    If someone emerges from the right they attack and smear that person, this is what fear and facts do to liberals. Over the years the Left has crafted their lies and agenda through society that half of the country believes it.

    As a Liberal you believe that George Bush is evil and an idiot and you believe you yourself arrived at that decision all by your self, you didn’t. George Bush graduated from both Harvard and Yale. GW is very intelligent and you have been sucked into the Liberal agenda. GW did not worry about what liberals thought of him and did not attack back; the left would never take the high road.

    As a liberal you believe that ”you” determined Sarah Palin is stupid, we should be so lucky as to have her in the White House. The left and the media mounted a full frontal assault on Sarah that is unprecedented ever in politics. Sarah is exactly what this Country needs. Sarah is a real person, not fake like Obama. She is a Mother, a wife, a Governor a Grand Mother, a Christian, a Mother of a special needs child. She has ran a State, balanced budgets and is not afraid to do the right thing even if it goes against her party. She has nothing to do with the Beltway and you do not have to have anything to do with it to get things done. Can one friggin Liberal tell me a Liberal that can compete with that? The Liberals are scared to death of her so they go to their old playbook of trying to smear her and call her stupid. If you think that you have arrived at a decision that Sarah is unqualified or stupid then you have been brain washed by the left, you are the “Sheeple” they want supporting them.

    Continued:

    John McCain was the wrong candidate to run for President, he is not a true conservative. If you reach across the isle you loose.

    Where a lot of you got sucked in was where the left campaigned that J Mac would be a continuation of GW. That was not true and liberals probably would have actually liked the way J Mac would have leaned to the left. He was the lesser of two evils though.

    Liberals, you voted for change, your gonna get more than you bargained for. Obama said whatever he needed to too whom ever he was addressing. The one promise he will keep is, he will raise taxes.

    In the first 90 days this administration had tripled our debt, taken over private companies and banks, printed money. In seven months they have already spent more money that the previous administration did in eight years. You do not spend your way out of debt. This is socialism.

    Now they want to regulate what Americans can make, WTF? Since when is it the Governments right to tell me what you or I can make. The administration now says we can’t use the words Terrorists or the war on Terrorism, Bullsh*t!!! Over 4000 brave Americans have died fighting the war on terrorism. To put that number in perspective their have been more people killed in violent crimes in Atlanta, Detroit and LA the last two years than that. (The press doesn’t cover that though).

    They have hanging out there the Cap & Trade bill. This will be the largest tax ever imposed on man, we will lose millions of jobs and everyone will pay for it. GLOBAL WARMING IS NOT TRUE! All this crap is based on false science. Who made up “Carbon Footprint”? Or “Reproductive Healthcare”? Seriously that is the dumbest sh*t ever.

    Healthcare, wow where to start? It’s funny the number of uninsured went down from 46 million to 30 million actually it’s more like 26 million because he’s still counting illegal aliens. You then have another 20 million and in that group you have the ones that think they are young and invincible and don’t need insurance and you could buy insurance but who would rather buy a new car or cell phone or Ipods. I’m sorry I’m not going to pay for their insurance. There is a constitutional amendment that guarantees health not be denied due to in ability pay and it works. Yes we need to tweak the system but Obama care is not the answer. Sheeple please don’t just blindly jump on board of any plan that comes from the left.

    Liberals how can you not see that the stimulus and cars for clunkers was not payback from Obama to his supporters? It is time to wake up. When you realize you have been spoon fed and lied to all these years you are going to be so ****ed off.

    To prove? That Canada with its socialized medicine cannot provide the worlds best medical care. That the best of the best medical practitioners practice here in America. That America has superior care and that we would be making a mistake to embrace a inferior product that is incapable as is of providing the best medical care.
    That point was driven home when the freaking Premier of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador bolted from Canada in pursuit of the worlds best medical care...in America.

    Both of my families GP doctors are from Canada, both practice here in Texas, both have said it is because they cannot make the money they are making in America in Canada. They both practice in Texas because Texas' tort laws protect them from frivilous law suits and lower their medical malpractice insurance as compared to many of the other states.

    If you are incapable of taking care of your own why would we want to emulate you?

    Like which facts?

    I've dispelled almost all of your points over the years. You're just another in a long line cut and paste posters believing this nonsense to be reality.

    Believe what you want. The rest of us in the real world will manage despite your beliefs to the contrary.

    You forgot one other key nonsensical conservative mantra. Reagan shrank the government and the deficit.

    As to why it costs more? E-gads man, I am just a grunt in the trenches of Emergency Medicine but we don't have the time to even start on that question.

    Just last night I had a 20 year old who wanted a Pregnancy test. Costs a buck at the dollar store, but goes to the ED to get it so she does not have to pay a co-pay (i.e. free.) So $2,000 later she finds out she is pregnant. I could give you anecdotal case after case as to why health care is so expensive.

    Sadly, much of it is cultural. Dartmouth-Hitch**** Medical Center in Hanover, NH has a lot of good, solid, reliable studies in the past several years about health care costs. Last November 60 Minutes did a phenominal story on this matter. Given that the helath care system spends almost half of your entire life-span health care costs in the last 6 months of your life. People can't say bye, and can't give up on a truly hopeless situation.

    This is the link to story. Well worth the 12 minutes of your time:

    http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?...in;contentBody

    We have a shortage of health care providers for all specialties and Internal/General/Family medicine which raises costs of care. Obesity and all the secondary diseases that occur from it (diabetes, stroke, hypertension, cancers, MIs, etc..,) The cost of treating the explosion of diabetes alone in the last 20 years on an annual basis is in the billions - much of it being preventable.

    But my premise that government reduction of spending is a farce. It will never occur because the same procedures and standard of care will still be demanded, they will still receive a pacemaker when they are 85 years old, bed ridden, and have an Ejection Fraction of less than 15% at a cost of more than $80,000 for that surgery........because the family wants it. I have seen it before a few times, and in the remainder of my career I guarantee you that I will see it again. Probably in the next few months.

    Part of the cost is the way our system is set up. The reason Canada, Great Britain, and other countries get the same drugs we do cheaper? We pay for it. Our government and our insurance companies don't have the balls to stand up the drug manufacturers and demand an equal price. The VA being the exception.

    Much of the cost of our system is the way it is set up, but at this point in the game for politicians to think that if they just magically stepped in and took over the system they would save untold billions just makes me laugh, then makes me mad - it is a bold faced lie.

    How is that any different from the verbeage you spew forth from the Huffington post and other sites that you frequent?

    Oh that's right, your standards apply only to other people, and not to you.

    Still waiting for you to back up your lies and accusations of me. I doubt that you will, but I will wait.

    You forgot one other key nonsensical conservative mantra. Reagan shrank the government and the deficit.

    SC you have never dispelled anything only in your mind, you are so brainwashed you can't see through it. There is not one thing cut or pasted in my rant it is what an open mind see's.

    The Liberals love simpletons like you, you believe anything you hear coming from the left and do what they and probably your union president tell you to do instead of free thinking. You are one of the people that would go to the comedy house to see a hypnotist and just sitting in the crowd you get hypnotised. I supose you fully support "card check" so people who don't follow flock such as you can be identified and be punished or sent to re-education camps.

    Wake up dude.

    I didn't dispel your post. I've dispelled all those points over the years via the writings of others.

    There's only one of me. A new wackjob like you pops up every week.

    Anyone who believes Sarah Palin was unduly treated by the media clearly wasn't paying attention to the treatment given Hillary Clinton.

    You claim Bush is intelligent because he went to Ivy League schools. Fair enough. Obama is an Ivy League grad. As is Al Gore. As is John Kerry. As is Bill Clinton. Also a Rhodes Scholar. Hillary Clinton was valedictorian as Wellesley. Are they just as intelligent (if not more so) than Bush? Conversely, your talking points come right off the Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity blabberfest known as conservative talk radio. All three of those individuals are college dropouts.

    The rest of your missive is the usual conservative talking point nonsense.

    I've been awake for a long time.

    I've got a question.

    Point me to one conservative ideal over the last 20 years that has been beneficial to the American people. Conservatism has just about ruined this country and has been the root cause of the most partisan rhetoric I've seen in my lifetime. Conservatism was once about optimism and looking to the future. Now it is about fear. Fear of taxes, fear of gays, fear of immigrants, and most significant, fear of the government. This country (especially the private sector) wouldn't exist were it not for both public investment, but government protection. Not that you would understand why.

    Whose happy about us being in Iraq? Should Obama have ignored his military advisors and just pulled out?

    One of the great lines told me years ago by a Vietnam vet who served four tours in-country as a company commander in the 101st.

    When have I used the HuffPo as a source?

    Here's a question for you.

    So, when Obama said,

    "I have put forward a plan that will get our troops out by the end of 2009."
    Source: 2008 Democratic debate in Las Vegas Jan 15, 2008

    You are okay with his apparent backpedal?

    Was he just naive when he made the original promise?

    Or do we just ignore it all because he has a (D) after his name?
