Not at all; the doctors in Canada are some of the most dedicated of professionals who truly believe in the oath.
They earn a pretty decent living; and they became doctors because they chose a field to help people.
Here we have callous doctors who carve up people to make money; they barely talk to their patients, they have their staff do everything. Do you want to be treated by a doctor who is only motivation is money? Heaven help you then.
Canada spent too much time and money to remove you; there will be no letting you return, unfortunately for the USA.

You mentally ill liberals seem to be the ones killing people.

Maybe that's the issue (mental illness) where a mental moron like you should concentrate.

Now run along and go try on your stretch pants, lowlife.

We learned a long time ago YOUR lying eyes is all you ever believe. Truth be damned. There are no similarities between Barack Obama and Frank Marshall Davis...not the eyes, not the nose, not the ears, not the mouth, not the chin and certainly not the bone structure. However, Barack Obama, Sr. actually does resemble the president. You are ridiculous in your conspiracy theories.
Barack's younger daughter, the fat one, resembles our cocaine dealer in Chicago.

The fact is that most salaried people work far more than 40 hours per week. They may not be rested or content, but they still do a good job. Those who work for the government not included.
Get real, fool.
its called working shifts...duh...

if you cannot grasp that concept perhaps you should not be trying to discuss such a complicated issue.

most salaried people are not making life and death decisions. even lowly truck drivers have limits on what hours they can work, pilots too...

pretty simple concept.....

Good News for America
First lady: Rolling back school lunch standards ‘unacceptable’
BY RENEE SCHOOF
MCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU
First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday said efforts in Congress to scale back school nutrition standards are “unacceptable to me not just as first lady but also as a mother.”
Obama made the comments at a roundtable she held with school food officials from Los Angeles; New York City; Burke County, Ga.; Norfolk, Va.; and Montgomery County, Md. Also attending was Shirly Watkins Bowden, former Agriculture Department Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services and past president of the School Nutrition Association.
"The stakes just couldn't be higher on this issue," the first lady said,“because one in three children in this country are still overweight or obese, and one in three are on track to develop diabetes in their lifetimes.”
"Now is not the time to roll back everything we have worked for."
The new lunch standards were developed by experts at the Institute of Medicine.
The School Nutrition Association and some House Republicans are fighting to change the regulations. The SNA originally supported them as part of the 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.
The organization didn’t have a representative at the White House meeting. It said in a statement on Tuesday that the regulations were “overly prescriptive” and that fewer students were eating lunches. A survey by the organization found that in 2012-13, 47 percent of school meal programs said their revenue declined.
Obama, however, said that the number of students eating school lunches has increased in many school districts, and “more importantly, parents across the country finally have some peace of mind about what their kids are eating during the school day.”
The regulations require schools to offer more fruits and vegetables, whole wheat products and low-sodium foods. The guidelines have been phased in over the past two years.
Many Republicans in the House of Representatives argue that the school lunch program is too costly and will get more expensive with the new federal guidelines.
Republican Rep. Robert Aderholt of Alabama, the chairman of the House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, recently said it’s time “to hit the pause button.” Last week, his panel approved a bill that would let districts get waivers to opt out of the healthier school lunch guidelines if they’re struggling financially to meet them.(More on the story here.)
Obama said she believed that nutrition experts should set standards, not Congress.
She asked the nutrition directors how it happened that there was opposition to the nutrition changes she championed.
Donna Martin, director of the school nutrition program for the Burke County Board of Education in Georgia, said students in her district eat lots of salads now, and two favorites are kiwi and cucumber slices with homemade low-fat ranch dressing.
“Our kids are worth it, y’all, do not let us go backwards,” she said.
“In the South, do you not think that taking fried chicken off the menu was dangerous? It was,” Martin added.“But we have an herb-baked chicken that our children love. We bake our French fries and we have whole grain, locally grown grits we do for breakfast that are awesome.”
This is none of her f*cking business. She was not elected nor appointed and has no mandate to tell me what my kids will eat.
