Libertarian ideology rejects most of the modern regulatory systems that protect consumers, because everyone should be responsible for determining whether the hamburger contains E. coli on his own. But does that do-it-yourself dogma apply to the regulation of medicine, too? If you’re Dr. Rand Paul, practicing ophthalmologist, the answer is emphatically yes.
According to an amusing story in today’s Louisville Courier-Journal, the Kentucky Republican Senate candidate bills himself as a “board-certified” physician even though he is not actually certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology — the only recognized body that certifies doctors in his specialty......
Just to be clear here, American Board of Ophthalmology is a private, not government organization.

The idea behind a more Libertarian government is not to eliminate government (that is anarchy). However, there are limits to what a government can and should provide to it's people. Both fiscal and moral limits. The idea behind Libertarianism is to increasingly allow the private sector to provide public services better and cheaper than can be done by the public sector.

Some people inherently don't trust private organizations to serve the public trust. But, I'd speculate an equal and growing number of people don't trust the public sector to serve the public trust as well.

I'm more than willing to discuss the pros and cons of Libertarian philosophy if we eliminate conspiracy theory and communist plots from the rhetoric (that part isn't aimed at you, Mr Bean)

Your point in bringing up a 2010 article is?..

In a statement today, Paul insists that his
lack of certification form the mainstream
ABO -- and his establishment of the NBO --
is a principled stand in response to the
ABO 's "decision to grandfather in the older
ophthalmologists and not require them to
recertify ."
" I thought this was hypocritical and unjust
for the older ophthalmologists to exempt
themselves from the recertification exam."

Why start a new certifying board?
Slembarski explained that in 1992 , the
American Board of Ophthalmology -- the
established certification board -- had
instituted new rules requiring that eye
doctors re- certify every ten years. But it was
legally barred from requiring recertification
from doctors who had been certified before
'92 . In the ensuing years , that caused anger
among younger ophthalmologists, who now
were subject to a time- consuming process
that their older competitors would be
spared .
A 2004 article in an online ophthalmology
journal expresses some of these frustrations
with ABO, and notes: "[ T] here are other
organizations out there that are willing and
able to have you take a test to be board -
certified , such as the online test that is
offered by the NBO. The NBO 's test is
cheaper and far more appealing to the
younger ophthalmologists with a time-
limited certification . "

You are the biggest gay loser!

HughBe--- I have designer suits that cost US$1000.00 or approximately and other designer clothes.

LOL.

Joel---Which designer?

Hugh---Versace Collections, as one example.

Joel---Does any self-respecting designer sell a suit as low as
$ 1000? LOL.

Hugh--- It seems that your knowledge is not based on ACTUAL experience.

Joel---Are your suits pret or haute?

Hugh--- See above
ha ha ha

You don't know the difference between pret and haute.

You have picked up a low costing pret Versace suit in a year end sale or something like that.

What you're referring to is low end pret - the pick one off the rack.

Versace haute couture costs tens of thousands of dollars and to order a haute Versace suit you'll have to fly into one of their leading salons located in Rome, Milan, or London where they create their haute stuff.

Pret is cheap but not so cheap at times and depends on the designer and the piece of clothing up for sale in their pret outlets around the world.

I am referring to haute couture and nothing else and yes the top end brands charge tens of thousands of dollars for an exclusive haute wear suit with accessories.

So, haute and pret-a-porter aren't mutually exclusive.
That's a contradiction.

Are you saying that pret is the same as haute? LOL.

You don't know what you're talking about.

Yes, most designers have a pret line but the big money is in haute couture which is the mainstay stay of the top designers.

The top end designers look down on their own pret lines and are embarrassed to talk about pret and say factory produced clothes are made to satiate the desires of the fashion-hungry masses for designer wear.

Fashion designers take pride in haute couture.

Stick to cheap street clothes. It suits your budget and style. LOL.

Joel---This strategy of slowly moving up the market in terms of volume of sales and popularity does not work with the high end haute couture designers. They are well established and anything new they produce has that stamp of class and high quality and sells out fast.

Hugh--- Do you understand your words i.e. "They are well established "? I am talking about quality that is just emerging from an unknown.
I can't discuss haute couture with people who have never worn a haute wear outfit and who know nothing about haute.

For the last time I am telling you that a top fashion designer would face no difficulty in selling a new range of products if he so desires to enter the market for the new range of products.

I have personally seen this happening time and again.

There's hardly any advertising and everything is high quality and discreet and the moment the new product is launched it sells out and establishes itself among the leading products in its category and faces no problems provided consistency in terms of innovation and high quality are the new product's hallmarks and it's always seen that designers go out of their way to bring in unique traits and consistent high quality in a new product they seek to launch in elite circles.

Anyway, take care.

Hugh-- Joel everyone knows that. The top fashion designer is a BRAND in himself or herself. Get it? Of course not and that is why you keep on repeating something that nobody is disputing.

So for the last time I shall say. A new brand from a new designer or maker can be of superior QUALITY to ALL existing brands but will not have the brand recognition of the top brands.

Please sit and meditate upon these things.

I am trying to prove nothing.

Haute is natural to me.

I have been wearing haute couture from a very young age courtesy my extra-stylish and extremely good looking late parents.

Haute is worn to special occasions like weddings, parties, restaurants, exclusive private dos or at times to business meetings and yes haute wear is far more expensive when compared to pret lines.

I am not trying to prove anything by wearing the haute stuff - it's natural to me since I was a toddler.

In fact, I own more pret these days than haute couture outfits.

To get a good haute suit, for example, I would have to fly to Milan, London, Rome or Paris where the main clothes salons of the top end fashion designers are located. This is tedious and so unless the occasions is extra-special one does not fly abroad to the top-end fashion salons for a unique or exclusive made-to-measure suit and then they have these fitting sessions for which one has to fly into their salon again. This is time consuming and tedious. The final product is dispatched by private courier to your address but it's so much trouble for the designer and for the client to make so many trips to the designer's salon in say Paris or Milan.

So, it's better to stick to local haute couturiers like say Shahab Durazi who're as good as their Western counterparts and better in some ways.

Wearing clothes that match my personality, taste and style is as natural as having a haircut.

Not everyone can carry off high fashion clothes especially the haute stuff - you should know how to carry yourself, have a great body, know almost everything about etiquette and table-wear/table manners and have sufficient intelligence to carry on a brilliant conversation in elite circles that does justice to your super clothes, otherwise it becomes a bland exercise in showing off and the person is overshadowed by the fine clothes and often becomes a laughing stock.

MATTER - LOW FREQUENCY VIBRATION OF ENERGY:

"What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses..."

- Dr Bruce Lipton

COMMENTS BY DEAREST JOEL:

1) Yes, matter agglomerates like the physical objects we see everywhere around us and our own bodies are concentrated clumps of energy that vibrate at low frequencies that match the frequency of vibration of our physicalized consciousness.

2) Higher the rate of vibration of energy field, subtler is the state of existence of energy and its condensate, matter.

3) Order, disorder, precision, manifestation, dissolution and motive found in energy field and in matter indicate that energy is conscious.

4) Each poise of energy field in terms of its vibrational rate manifests a concomitant degree of order, disorder and motive thereby revealing the various degrees of consciousness that inhere in energy.

5) The entire universe is one big outgrowth or a graded manifestation of different spatio-temporal dimensions of a self-existent absolute conscious energy field.

CELLULAR SELF-ORGANIZATION & HARMONY"

"Beneath our skin is a bustling metropolis of 50 trillion cells, each of which is biologically and functionally equivalent to a miniature human...

...because cells and human find themselves in similar biological circumstances, it naturally raises the question - how can 50 trillion cells live in harmony and peace while a mere 7 billion people are on the verge of annihilating each other?

....about 700 million years ago, nature reiterated an old strategy to increase awareness: assemble single cell eueukaryotes, into multicellular communities to share awareness and efforts for the mutual benefit of all...\

.....success is measured by how well each organ fulfils its job of co-operating with other systems.

Community by its nature, represents an organisation of individuals who share common interested, attitudes or goals....

Our 50 trillion cells are a model community...

Cellular politics is characterized by:

- unity combined with diversity through which each of the body’s 200 different cell types perform diverse functions for the benefit of the collective whole

- a central intelligence system that co-ordinates all of the body’s physiologic systems with the needs of individual cells

- a healthy balance between beneficial growth systems and occasionally necessary protection systems, both of which consume energy resources

....these principles of unity and diversity, central intelligence, and balance between growth and protection, as expressed within the body, can be applied to the body politic to provide a new, more holistic definition: politics is how we organise, relate and act together to promote the health of the whole of humanity and every individual in it....

....the emphasis is on the awakening of all cellular souls who create a coherent loving field so empowered leaders can be attuned to the healthy central voice of the super-organism that is humanity.

Consequently, the real challenge for the individual is to practice evolution, to learn the lessons of the old stories so we no longer need to repeat them, and to remind ourselves that the critical mass of humanity involved with this evolution will change the world from the inside out. we are living in a positive future, practising Heaven, and designing a bridge across which the whole of humanity will walk.

This is our love story – a universal love story for the entire universe: you, me, everyone, and every living organism too."

- Dr Bruce Lipton
