I wonder if she is a doctor because she is piled higher and deeper or an MD.

If this idiot is an MD, I am sure she is aware that Doctors kill over two hundred thousand people a year, and very few use guns.

I sincerely hope she is a PHD, otherwise her patients must suffer greatly under her ignorant care.

I suspect her paycheck comes from Soros or the Joyce Foundation or the Brady Bunch.

Only those folks are stupid enough to keep repeating the same old lies.

That only works when the liar can shut up all dissenting voices.

Ask Goebbels.

If the government totally outlawed all privately held guns in America, I would be 200% more concerned about my family's safety than I am today.

More violence and ethnic cleansing has occured under governmental gun control policies than could ever occur by citizens owning and carrying firrearms.

Concealed Carry by citizens make this a polite society. Our problem is that we do not have enough people willing to take on the responsibility of Concealed Carry!

Be a responsible person and Carry for the good of all! Tell the criminals that the well being of your family is more important than their criminal lives.

This is how to write paragraphs on internet forums. Using a line space for every single sentence that fits the width of the page is rude and probably indicates you want to bury other posts by flooding the page with useless comments.

Short posts with only a few sentences is ok, but not long posts.

I find it hard to believe you completed four years of college writing that way.

The 2nd amendment prohibits GOVTS from regulating guns. Our lives, our privacy, freedom, and safety, depend on the govt obeying that law.

Eerie good guess on the college. Took me a total of 9 years.
In between changing majors and working.

In English lit, I always got a's for content and f's for format.
Strong C's. I was always pretty good with math, but statistics almost ruined me.

Go figure.

Hang in there Tory, you will teach me "yet".

Although I have plenty of English majors trying to help me here.

We have a right to keep and bear arms,I don't care how that Doctor interprets the constitution.yes there should be a record check on all people that buy guns.It's not the gun that kills people,it's the idiot that pulls the trigger.A mandatory gun course(firing range and test) might be a good idea.Since most people don't know a trigger from a potatoe chip.I've never cared much for Doctors-I went through six Doctors over a period of 5 years just trying to get an ear infection cleared up-someone on the internet told me what to do!

Doctors kill 100,000's of people in the U.S. annually. It's no wonder there is a rally for tort reform.

"I have heard many times that law-abiding citizens should be able to carry concealed weapons." ~ DR. NANCY M. VAUGHAN

Nancy, a person in the U.S. is not required to prove law abiding nor must they be a citizen in order to purchase, possess or lawfully carry firearms. You should check your facts for accuracy before publishing such a letter, surely a college graduate should be capable of doing such a thing or did you fudge your college papers.

Another moron that thinks we should be allowed flintlocks & muskets. The more education some people have the dumber they get. Obviously if you go around threatening people with "arms" you should not be allowed to possess them and have your head looked at. If you go commiting assault or murder with a gun then you are a criminal. If you use your guns in a lawful manner such as hunting, target practice or self defense then you should not be bothered by the powers that be. The last time I used a gun for anything other than to shoot targets (empty cans & old small appliances) was to dispose of a rabid raccoon that was in my neighbors yard. No big deal and the problem was handled in an efficient manner...

Yet another 'highly educated' person who's let her education get in the way of her learning.
.
For someone who spent as much time in school as she, it would appear that she got dumber rather than smarter.
.
But then? The worst part of hubris is inveterate ignorance fostered by a 'know it all' attitude.

If she is an MD or D.O. I wonder if she prescribes Staten drugs like lipator? If so she is killing her patients slow and painfully.

While it is very true that stains can cause harm, they also provide great benefit.

Kind of like guns.

If you need a stain, just make sure you report muscle soreness and get those liver enzymes checked.

It is all about the risk and benefit.

I have mild concern of people that are prescribed statins before a cardiac event.

They are certainly worth the risk after you have survived an MI.

There is some research on a super statin, that can actually reverse atherosclerosis.

Now that would be helpful.

Get your LDL under 100.

If you have Coronary Artery Disease, get it under 70.

LDL cholesterol CAUSES CAD.

Everything else is a risk factor.

Work on the cause, then work on the risks.

And the side effects of Lipitor are muscle problems that can lead to kidney problems, including kidney failure. Liver problems. LIPITOR can cause liver problems. Your doctor may do blood tests to check your liver before you start taking LIPITOR, and while you take it.
Muscle problems like weakness, tenderness, or pain that happens without a good reason, fever or fatique
swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat that may cause difficulty in breathing or swallowing, which may require treatment right away.
nausea and vomiting
brown or dark-colored urine
skin and whites of your eyes get yellow
stomach pain
skin reaction
Diarrhea
Upset stomach
Muscle and joint pain
Alterations in some laboratory tests
Tiredness
Tendon problems
You can't even take vitamins if you are taking lipitor.

It is not one of the more popular ones.

Crestor and Zocor tend to have less side effects. And I believe zocor went generic this year *simvastatin).

I personally like Honey Nut Cheerios.

My LDL went from 119 to 80 in one year.

granted, I did eat less sausage.

Many times I believe there are safer ways to treat some medical problems without harsh prescription drugs. Especially when many of the newer ones have not thoroughly tested. Have you seen the lawsuits against Paxil? Remember the phin-fin diet? They had to pull that one from the market. I have heard (no proof only rumors) that doctors can not tell you to change your eating habits but must prescribe drugs per FDA rules. For example, if you have a vitamin C deficiency they have to give you vitamin C pills and cannot tell you to just eat more oranges or strawberries. When I had acid reflux the doctor told me I would have to take previcid for the rest of my life. Instead, I cut out sodas and acidy foods such as tomatoes and citrus fruit and have been fine ever since.

once a name brand goes generic it has probably been on the market long enough to find out how harmful it could be. but how many people suffer with the others?
