Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

If you are satisfied with the second team, knock yourself out.
Time in school means squat if the schools suck and the course material is watered down. Where did your physician assistants go to school?
Galt is done with this subject.
P.S. Real doctors often don't wear white coats any more to avoid being mistaken for physician assistants.
And just to be clear before completely dropping the subject, they aren't "my" physician assistants. But they ARE everywhere - especially in specialized clinics and hospitals in cities - but also in clinics and hospitals in smaller towns across the country.

Nurse Practitioners - "glorified nurses" who I called "wannabes" when transcribing their dictations - are becoming more and more prevalent too in some specialties.

Okay, the subject is now dropped.

I'm beginning to think that Methmouth is Flo as well. Maybe "they're" all the same psycho. Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean no one's out to get you. Loved Fenny Bate's not getting network TV, not knowing that True Blood is not network (also a book series), yet knowing "Friends" last season. Ain't them just some pitty peaches?

So, in your opinion, when should one be permitted to use deadly force in self defense?
When you're not the instigator , stalking & hunting the eventual victim. If you want to claim self defense, you do everything possible to remain innocent of any infraction. I said stalking because, it should've been the underlining felony of the 3rd degree charge the prosecutor so stupidly tried to use child abuse to insert the charge &, the judge so rightfully rejected.

Actually, the last part is true.
But PAs and NPs are now part of the medical profession's landscape and they will be growing in numbers over the next few years. There won't be enough physicians to go around.
Sorry, but that's just the way it is.
Those who can afford to pay will still be treated by the real thing, not a clerk.

LMAO after googling leospamdra's newest avatar theft, Anna Pacquin.
She's supposedly married (w multiple kids) to her male costar in some goofy vampire series, yet is a proud, self-proclaimed "bisexual". I can just imagine the normalcy of their family life, as they explain to their poor kids that "mommy is going to do a little pssylcking tonight, so Daddy has to sleep in the upper bunk with you".....
LMAOAU freaks.....
Oh, Fennysock, please just give it up. Even I'm beginning to feel a little uncomfortable at the level to which you're embarrassing yourself. Bring out Meth/Flo to fight your battles for awhile--no one expects them to speak English.

Now banks are fighting back by trying to take away something vital to credit unions their federal tax exemption.
With fast-growing credit unions posing more formidable competition to banks, industry trade groups are pressing the White House and Congress to end a tax break that dates to the Great Depression."

Congress needs to get off their asses and pass a tax reform law...ASAP!

The IRS now looks like a dinosaur.

There wouldn't be an issue of raising or cutting taxes with tax reform and the IRS could move to Russia and join the KGB.

Its a line out of "Friends", you old fossil. That series ended in 2004, so you must be 106 years old. Dont worry though; I dont discriminate on age (because everyone gets there eventually if they're lucky).

This is true.

But if you have to get a referral to a specialty by your primary physician, don't be surprised if you see a PA at some point - especially during follow-up visits or at your first appointment to get a history and physical.

Not trying to be argumentative. Just a heads up. But maybe it's different where you live.

For those who want nothing more than to actually LEARN and EARN for themselves, of their own merit and ability- a wonderful idea.
For cheaters, maybe not as much-not quite the same actual feeling of personal satisfaction (and the ability to PROVE that) of doing the learning and earning themselves!
Too bad for them!
Leaving home and learning to live independently as an adult is a valuable part of the college experience.

We have far too many young adults still living at home.

A bipartisan group of senators reached a tentative agreement on a student loans package Wednesday night, multiple aides from each party said.
Sen. Tom Harkin, Democratic chairman of the committee that oversees federal education programs, agreed to the deal, one of those sources close to the negotiations told CNN.
The Iowa senator's support is key because it would likely persuade most Democratic senators to vote for the bill.
Harkin has resisted for weeks agreeing to a plan unless it included caps on how high the interest rates on the loans could rise. The tentative plan includes caps on loans to undergraduate students at 8.25%, graduate students at 9.5% and parents at 10.5%.
Student loan rates doubled July 1 from 3.4% to 6.8% after Congress failed to reach a deal averting the increase.
Rude awakening for grads
Harkin also pressed to ensure the government would not profit from the loans. A final cost analysis, which would determine that, was not completed as of Wednesday night, a Democratic leadership aide said.
The White House, which has been heavily involved in negotiations, backs the agreement, a Senate Democratic leadership aide said.
Still, one word of caution came late Wednesday from an aide to a Democratic senator deeply involved in negotiations. That aide said final details were still being worked out.
This same group of negotiators had previously announced a tentative agreement, but it fell apart after the Congressional Budget Office estimated the costs were high.
The agreement, if approved by the full Senate, would tie interest rates on a variety of government-backed loans to 10-year Treasury notes and would lock in surcharges paid to the government for administrative costs.
Student loans - the next bubble to burst.

No one can find jobs because of Obamacare.

Would have been nice if you had elected someone who knew what the hell they were doing.

1) You claimed the exchanges were not free market based./ They are based on the free market.
2) You never purchased health insurance as an individual means you have no clue as to the cost differentials between doing that & being part of a group.
The money used to fund the ACA is generated through a series of taxes affecting few individual taxpayers.
Why should anyone be forced to purchase insurance for someone else?

The taxes currently in place will not come close to funding this turkey.

Eliminate all subsidies!
