At least one physician "gets it".


My sweetieheart directed me to a post she linked to on her facebook page. Being the ever attentive and supportive spouse (Stop laughing out there, it could happen!!), I went and read it.

The site is called Campaign For Liberty , and though a decidedly libertarian/Ron Paul leaning place, they do have some interesting commentary. This particular one addresses the massive governmental push (at all levels) for “health care”. Written by Dr. Jane M. Orient, a practicing physician, it is dead on as to what we collectively need to be addressing.

The problem is the forest. Cutting down a tree here and there isn’t enough. The question is whether we want to put the federal government in control of American medicine. And about the related question of what medicine should be.

Now that I have whetted your interest, go and read the whole thing. This is indeed one Doctor that “gets it”. And wanna bet she was not one of the attending physicians at Obama’s photo shoot at the White House, a couple of weeks ago?

  1. I have been saying this is our government’s answer to The Final Solution, just in a more subtle manner. It is rather telling that as our government lurches to the left, the Eurosocialists are veering to the right.

    Yeah, I liked what the good Doctor had to say. Rather ironic it took only one or two pages for her to say it, vice 2000 or so for the government to hide … err, get their point across.

    As for the EU folks heading back toward “center”, I wonder if it is the last gasp of any and all over there who have any sense of self preservation, in the face of the on coming Islamic hoards, rather than any particular fondness for conservative social or political values.

    If it is, they are way too late to save themselves. Between negative birthrates, political correctness, hate crimes, and Shari’a law, the Europeans are as good as extinct.

    You are most likely correct Aggie, although the loss of (most of) our cultural heritage (like it or not, we collectively trace our societal/moral/cultural roots to some part of Europe or another, if not the Mediterranean rim in general) would be a sad thing. Does anyone really expect the Islamists, once in power/control to keep the history, arts, and most certainly the religious; documents, artifacts, and architecture, intact or in place for any length of time?

    I suspect more than one Euro-nation state expects US to once more step into the breech, and save their sorry asses. We have been the “ace up Europe’s sleeve” at least twice in the 20th century, why not one more time.

    Sadly, I don’t think we will be either around, or in strong enough shape, if we are still here, to do anything this time. We will have enough going on over here to keep our hands full for quite some time.

    And unlike Tolkien’s “Lord of the Ring” series, we have no magic ring, which once destroyed, effectively ends the conflict. Though the evil we face is every bit as all consuming, and vile as anything brought to life by that wonderful English Professor.

    Or close the wall up with our English dead.”

    Sorry, there is no third time lucky….

    “The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
    In the ranks of death you will find him.
    His father’s sword he has girded on,
    And his proud harp slung behind him.”

    Always loved that tune. Struck me as acknowledging even those who are of an “artistic temperament”, will well know when the time has come to fall into the ranks, and join in the cause. So willingly I will go “once more into the breach” … I only await the call.
