Homer thinks healthcare providers should be slaves to the rest of us.
Does that apply to all degrees? Or just selected ones?

Now, given the overwhelming evidence that Zimmerman stalked Trayvon, causing Trayvon to defend himself. How can Zimmerman then claim self defense?
The fact that you think you know the meaning of such a simple word as stalk & no one else does, really raises question on you definition of knowledge!
In reference to you, a stalk is:

a : the main stem of an herbaceous plant often with its dependent parts

From a criminal perspective though....

Funny. I'll bow to your infinite insight on the matter--although I think Chaz, or is it Chuck now, has slimmed down a lot recently, and I don't remember American Pickers.

Hey NJ Racist. I suspect you are too lazy to open the link, so here:

Stalking

Fla. Stat.ยง 784.048. Stalking; definitions; penalties.(2012)

(1) As used in this section, the term:

(a) "Harass" means to engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person which causes substantial emotional distress to that person and serves no legitimate purpose.

(b) "Course of conduct" means a pattern of conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, which evidences a continuity of purpose. The term does not include constitutionally protected activity such as picketing or other organized protests.

(c) "Credible threat" means a verbal or nonverbal threat, or a combination of the two, including threats delivered by electronic communication or implied by a pattern of conduct, which places the person who is the target of the threat in reasonable fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her family members or individuals closely associated with the person, and which is made with the apparent ability to carry out the threat to cause such harm. It is not necessary to prove that the person making the threat had the intent to actually carry out the threat. The present incarceration of the person making the threat is not a bar to prosecution under this section.

(d) "Cyberstalk" means to engage in a course of conduct to communicate, or to cause to be communicated, words, images, or language by or through the use of electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person, causing substantial emotional distress to that person and serving no legitimate purpose.

Don't have to insist. I do.

But we all are seen and examined by PAs whether we like it or not sometimes. Unless you don't really need to see a doctor anyway.

By the way, PAs are not clerks. They often share the same status as physicians in the eyes of the medical profession depending on their specialties.

They are actually quite trained if that makes you feel any better. And treating many illnesses becomes rather routine.

When Galt is ill enough to waste time on a medical visit, Galt wants a physician who knows he is the best and charges accordingly.

Dedication and self-sacrifice are no substitute for competence.

Many of the best physicians are arrogant bastards, but so what?

Key players in the IRS scandal are to testify again.
CNN-The Republican National Committee released a video this week that accused the Obama administration of dodging responsibility. It included footage of IRS officials testifying before congressional committees, edited to highlight when they said they didn't know or were unable to remember details.
"Americans deserve answers to why their First Amendment rights were so egregiously violated," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said. "Turning a blind eye and claiming not to know, or remember, what actions were carried out is no excuse for targeting individuals based on their beliefs. These are simple questions, and if they can't answer it raises another: what are they hiding?"
...What are they hiding, indeed.
Really stupid? Just how were anyone's 1st Amendment rights violated? Nobody was prevented from presenting their views liar. The First Amendment right to free speech doesn't include the right to a tax exempt status. But go ahead Carol keep reminding us everyday what a truly clueless twit you are.

Yeah, I was going to mention that yesterday but it slipped my mind.

Apparently, some unions wrote a letter to this administration very unhappy that Obamacare is going to hurt "their" employees.

Hilarious, I thought.

The National Rifle Association blasted Eric Holder for using the George Zimmerman case to attack "stand-your-ground" laws, accusing the attorney general of exploiting Trayvon Martin's shooting death for political gain.

In medicine, quality of personnel is paramount.

Cheap medicine available to all is worthless if the personnel are less than the best, or worse, lack medical degrees.

If Trayvon had been shot for looking at someone the wrong way while in any housing project, it would have not been news at all.
It's the culture...
You can be sure that the settlement made no admission of responsibility and likely contained a requirement for confidentiality. If Trayvon's parents talk about it too much, they may jeopardize the money.

Best to keep quiet while movin' on up.
