Barack Obama, our next President

Southwestern Pa. hospital to stop baby deliveries


Posted: Jan 16, 2013 8:58 AM PST Updated: Jan 16, 2013 8:58 AM PST

WINDBER, Pa.(AP)— A southwestern Pennsylvania hospital will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can't afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

The Windber Medical Center, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

Hospital officials say the population of women of child-bearing age is dropping and that the number of births the hospital would be called upon to perform isn't enough for it to provide the service in the face of lower reimbursements under the federal Affordable Care Act.

The hospital delivered about 200 babies each year since restarting its obstetrics program in 2005.

Officials aren't sure how many jobs will be lost.

The problem is this Hatred toward Obama is part of a new American Taliban movement that no longer wants majority rule or free elections.
Does anyone really think that the NRA is concerned about your rights....REALLY...They have only one objective and that is "MONEY" PERIOD. Only total morons and all the Republican's walk the plank for these Gestapo agents. The NRA couldn't care less if all the children in America gets murdered, sad but totally true...MONEY...GREED...And POWER it's the republican way. Plain and simple.

Take the Obama children out of Sidwell Friends and the school is still an armed fortress.
Employees and staff in all schools should have the same opportunity to defend themselves.
You & the NRA. Too stupid to know that Obama being President puts his kids in danger.

Do you f*cking idiots know what a resource officer is??? Did you morons not know that funding for these was included by Obama???

Of course not.

You're all too busy running in circles, flailing your arms & screaming Obama is coming to take your guns.

I'm sure returning veterans are jumping for joy to end up working for $7.50 an hour for 20 hours and being taught how to apply for medicaide and foodstamps, after sacrificing their lives for their country. What an effing super bonus.
Nah, that's just WalMart trying to keep in touch with America and it will pay off for them in many ways. BTW Walmart has all sorts of jobs that pay well over minimum wage. C'mon lily everyone is not a part time deli worker eh?

Should add that the returning vet problem is solving itself, although much too slowly.

We just had a funeral in this area, a young guy PFC Markie Tims of Marion County, combat KIA Afghanistan. Twenty year old black kid with a new wife who was pregnant. As funerals go it was memorable with dozens of Nam era guy's 21 guns and the whole shootin match. He's still dead lily, the flag will go in the bottom drawer and the wife and youngster will struggle through life.

It's always sunny in Kabul eh?

LAS VEGAS (AP)— A weapons industry group based in the Connecticut town where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults last month is opening a Las Vegas Strip trade show Tuesday that’s expected to draw tens of thousands of manufacturers and enthusiasts.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation was focusing its 35th annual SHOT Show on products and services new to what it calls a $4.1 billion industry, with a nod to a raging national debate over assault weapons.

The group said it has issued credentials to nearly 60,000 industry professionals, recreational gun owners and law enforcers to attend.

BOISE, Idaho - A gun show was held at Expo Idaho Saturday and the organizer says sales are through the roof.

"These guns and ammo are going out the door in arm loads. Some people can hardly walk they've got so much stuff," said organizer Paul Snider.

Snider attributes the gun show's success to the state of politics.

"I don't think they are panicking yet but they are very concerned about what might come down the line," Snider said.

All of the people we talked with say they are concerned about the future of their rights as gun owners.

"Its going to be an invasion of our 2nd Amendment rights," said Ted Cash.

I understand and agree. There's no question that the NRA has done more to protect my gun rights than Obama, I've never intended to make that argument. My point is that the NRA has portrayed Obama as an enemy to gun owners, that is simply not true. Many people believe that the NRA speaks for ALL gun owners and that also is simply not true. There are some reasonable restrictions that can be imposed on gun owners that MAY save lives, such as a national background check, 10 max clip and a ban on assault type weapons. Just for the record, G.W. Bush and Reagan were also in favor of banning assault type weapons but never attacked like this.

This has nothing to do with the NRA.

School "resource officers" are washed up cops or ex-cops who are easy targets for determined killers. Columbine had a school resource officer who ran away at the first sign of trouble. Far better to have an anonymous armed teacher(s) to respond to trouble. Better still, the only additional funding required would be for training and equipment.

Idiots like you would prefer that students and teachers hide in closets and hope for the best instead of defending themselves.

I will grant that nobody in their right mind would send their children to the public schools in Washington, D.C., but that is unrelated to security, at least from outside forces.
The problem is the objections of the left to other schools providing armed security.

Well now there's a new one! An anonymous school shooter who is armed and paid by the state.

That would certainly make teachers and parents want to bring their weapons along too!

Was referring to the Washington schools being totally devoid of any educational quality, apparently lost on you.

But the truth is that most school security is required to protect the inmates from each other.
