Oops! From your source....

"...Surprisingly, the Protestant reformers often agreed with Rome, that witches were a clear and present danger. All four of the major western Christian "churches" (Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist, Anglican) persecuted witches to some degree or another.(Eastern Christian, or Orthodox Churches carried out almost no witch hunting).

None of these persecutions could have been carried out without the permission and cooperation of secular governments. In only a few small regions, like the Papal States and various Prince-Bishoprics in Germany, were religious and temporal government leaders one and the same. But in all the rest of Western Europe, secular princes ultimately decided whether or not witches were hunted. Still, religious leaders carry a large share of the blame for the hunts, since secular princes often hunted witches on the advice of the clergy. Princes hunted witches because Church leaders taught them that witches were disturbers of the peace, destructors of property, and killers of animals and people...."

<quoted text>The United State of America is the most heavily medicated country in the world. With 3.5 billion drugs or more prescribed each year, Americans buy more drugs per person than any other country. About 34% of American adults take at least one prescription drug and 11.5% take 3 or more, according to a 2012 Forbes report. This amounts to around 130 million Americans each month.
The negative side effects of such prevalent drug use are often underestimated. Around 125,000 Americans die each year from drug reactions, according to AP projections. That makes prescription drugs the fourth leading cause of death in America. When considering nonfatal reactions, the numbers are even worse. Hospital patients suffer 10 adverse drug reactions per 100 admissions, meaning that when you enter a hospital you have a 10% chance of such a misadventure. Of these 3.6 million episodes per year, 70% are hard to foresee but 30% are outright mistakes.
Americans spent $307 billion on prescription drugs in 2010. The pharmaceutical industry is massive in America, and deeply intertwined with the physicians who prescribe the medications. Around one fourth of doctors take cash payments from drug or device makers, and two thirds accept routine gifts of food.
- See more at: http://adamgoldfein.com/medicated-america/#st...
About 130 million Americans — many far healthier than the Heckmans — swallow, inject, inhale, infuse, spray, and pat on prescribed medication every month, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates. Americans buy much more medicine per person than any other country.
3.5 billion prescriptions per year
The number of prescriptions has swelled by two-thirds over the past decade to 3.5 billion yearly, according to IMS Health, a pharmaceutical consulting company. Americans devour even more nonprescription drugs, polling suggests.
Recently, safety questions have beset some depression and anti-inflammatory drugs, pushing pain relievers Vioxx and — most recently — Bextra from the market. Rising ranks of doctors, researchers and public health experts are saying that America is overmedicating itself. It is buying and taking far too much medicine, too readily and carelessly, for its own health and wealth, they say.
Well over 125,000 Americans die from drug reactions and mistakes each year, according to Associated Press projections from landmark medical studies of the 1990s. That could make pharmaceuticals the fourth-leading national cause of death after heart disease, cancer and stroke.

Just in case this didn't post in response to one of your earlier posts.
You seem to have forgotten the Muslim invasions beginning in the 7th century to the 13th stretching from China, India, Northern Africa, Eastern Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
The massacre by Muslims in India was one of the bloodiest in history.
Atrocities against Christians had been taking place decades before the Crusades.
When Muslims conquered Jerusalem in the 7th century, the Crusades in 1066 were more of a counter-attack as Christians and Jews were denied access after having been occupants of the Holy Land for 400 years.
History is filled with bloody conquests. But you act like Muslims have always been the victims. Quite the opposite.
Uhhh no, I really think the crazies amongst both of y'all's groups should go ahead and kill each other off.

Let's try it this way
You, as a self proclaimed Libertarian, support the tax lovingly known as obamacare to cure the problem of people abusing emergency rooms?
If more people are insured I would expect those costs to go down. Now, this has absolutely nothing to do with my ideology. Unlike you I can look at the world rationally instead of through the partisan goggles you use. I can say, for instance, that I think the violence in Egypt will probably get worse before it gets better but that doesn't mean I endorse the military and police slaughtering their own people. You would see it that way but that's because you're a childish idiot.

CNBC did.
"Get ready for the Internal Revenue Service to play a dominant role in health care. When Obamacare takes full effect next year, the agency will enforce most of the laws involved in the reform—even deciding who gets included in the health-care mandate.
"'It's also going to help manage who might get health care,' according to Paul Hamburger, a partner and employee benefits lawyer at Proskauer."

The vast majority of the population has no idea how much technology is going to change their lives in the next 5 years. Some actually may not be able to handle it. It will be interesting to watch.

Data from hundreds of weather stations located around the U.S. appear to show the planet is getting warmer, but some critics say it's the government's books that are getting cooked -- thanks to temperature readings from sweltering parking lots, airports and other locations that distort the true state of the climate.

You socialists say "If more people are insured I would expect those costs to go down." Then why do countries who already have socialized medicine ration. How do you know more people just won't go to the doctor more and ask for more tests & procedures more often if it is free? Government spending never goes down once they have control of anything, Commie boy.

Yes, our climate has changed during the planets lie.

Eman thinks that just because these things happened before man's industrial age that it is not possible for man to do anything to change the climate regardless of how many greenhouse gases they pump into the atmosphere.
