Have you ever read the Hasting Report? A very good publication on death and dying.
I agree this shouldn't be left to bureaucrats, but individual hospital ethics panels need to provide some guidance.
Now my experience with hospitals and a stroke victim was totally different. My aunt would not survive and get her out of here immediately was the hospital's response.
the real money spent in medical costs is in hospital stays, not in doctor fees or drugs...and the hospital costs are real....

<quoted text> Baloney! Stop drinking the Fox News poisoned wine. John Boehner claims that there are not enough votes in the House to pass a cleaning funding budget resolution and end the Government shut-down. Ask the Speaker to PROVE IT! Put in to a vote and find out for sure. That would be honorable bipartisan political responsibility to the American people and respect for what the people want. Listen to Ron Wydon. You listened and agreed when Ron Wydon criticized the President for not being more open with the Congress and the people on NSA spying so why not now? America is jeopardizing our energy advantage and rural communities are facing huge revenue loss because of this senseless shutdown. The House has the votes to pass the Senate's resolution and reopen the government -- it's past time they do it.#JustVote
the so-called government shutdown is irrelevant to the economy...just a lot of political hot air...

so, get over it and get back to work...except for an old lady like you....

P.S. There is no "Ron Wydon" in Congress.

<quoted text>So now your only whining complaint is that Obamacare did not go far enough in providing better quality healthcare for the poor, sick and elderly. Why didn't you urge your Congressmen to strengthen the Affordable Healthcare Bill before it passed rather than running around willy-nilly wasting time crying about 'creeping socialism' and hokey 'death panels'in the law?
making poison stronger just makes it kill quicker....

I'm back. Waiting for the Tylenol PM to kick in.

Calling the president a liar when he clearly has a pattern of lying is not even in the same ballpark as calling a black presidential candidate a "negro".

Who even uses that word anymore?

What if a Republican had said what Harry Reid said? Do you think Obama would have let it pass then? Or the NAACP? Or every nutcase in the liberal media?

Obama said he will negotiate with Republicans just as soon as they give him everything he wants.

What would there be to negotiate? Liberals were very impressed though, I'm sure.

The left's racial double standards have allowed them to keep minorities in their place.

Affirmative Action is racist in and of itself.

Unemployment for young black people is ridiculously and unacceptably high.

Urban/inner-city public schools are hellholes.

You need to go to bed . Your meth-induced hallucinations are over-whelming your rationality. Excuse me, who wasn't willing to talk and compromise? Ted Cruz just wanted to f*ck with people over defunding Obamacare and forcing a government shut-down.
'Despite Republicans' insistance that he's not willing to come to the table and negotiate re-opening the federal government, President Barack Obama on Monday noted that his party is already willing to accept a short-term measure to fund the government that includes funding the GOP previously considered a policy victory, provided it doesn't touch Obamacare.

"The bill that is being presented to end the government shutdown reflects Republican priorities," Obama said, addressing federal employees at FEMA in Washington. "It's the Republican budget. The funding levels of this short-term funding bill, called the CR, is far lower than what Democrats think it should be.

"Nevertheless Democrats are prepared to put the majority of votes on it to fund the government," he added. "When you hear government not compromising, we're compromising so much we're willing to open the government at funding levels that reflect Republican wishes, that don't at all reflect our wishes." #PROVE IT;Just Vote . http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/obama-w...

The United States - a hundred years of slavery followed by over a hundred years of massive discrimination & then followed by moderae discrimination.

Just read the posts here with the flood of racial slurs.

Funny how you racist f*cks cry about affirmative action when your posts provide proof that it is needed.

You f*cking idiots think because a law was passed nearly 50 years go that 200 years of repression disappears in a generation or two.

<quoted text>The dumb, deaf, and blind can't see it, obviously.
They also cannot see the shambles that the majority of the black community is in because of things like fatherless children, a loss of traditional black family values, a welfare state that holds blacks in mediocrity, allegiance to a political party that promulgated that welfare state yet which, 50 years ago, was for segregation and Jim Crow.
Remember what LBJ said in 64, referring to the ERA he signed?
He said, "I'll have those n*****s voting Democrat for the next 200 years."
No, the deaf, dumb, and blind can't see these things, and apparently you can't either.
You can't be that damn dense but, then again, who am I to judge your perception of commonsense? 2 kids, a black one &, a white one. Both catch the same charge of " possession of as controlled dangerous substance ( crack cocaine ). It's a certainty that the black kid will be sentenced under much more strict guidelines and penalties. Does that seem fair to you? Obama even seen the injustice &, passed legislation to close the gap between the sentencing guidelines of cocaine ( known as the whiteman's drug) &, crack cocaine,( known as the blackman's drug. Obama broke out down from 100/1 to, 18/1. He did his best but, is that equality to you? Funny thing you brought up 1964. Isn't that the year that the 2 major parties swapped identities? Before that, wasn't the south full of democratif blue states? After LBJ &, the New Deal, didn't the south slowly but surely change to republican red states? So now Mr. Dumb, deaf, and blind, you tell me what is more plausible. Did everyone from the south pack up and move north or, did the parties swap identities. Please don't blow your nose before you answer this question!

There may have been an American in the group or nearby but likely not an active duty military member. Terrorist Liby is currently on a US Navy ship in the Mediterranean so at some point there was a hand off.
You may recall that during the Benghazi ordeal there were former but not active duty military present.
Boots on the ground=active duty US Military.
They could have nabbed him on his way to the grocery store. He wasn't in hiding. This is just another case where Obama needs a diversion and something to help promote the charade that he is fighting against terrorists and not having terrorists in the White House every day.
This terrorist was completely out of the loop. You can assume he's been retired for 15 years. The Al Qaeda leadership today has completely changed from when he was in the loop. There is no information of value we can get from him.
Send him to Kenya where they can hang him.

Did you know that here in Maryland there are now more registered independents than Democrats?...pretty significant in a blue, blue state with closed Primaries.
Did your polls show you that? Probably not.
It is really stupid to be a registered Independent in a state with closed elections.

In regions heavily favored by Republicans or Democrats, the election is over with the primary.
