. Ever think you needed to take up knitting? You don't have any luck on here! As someone else said" opinions are like butts", everyone has one!<quoted text>IF they don't need to write a prescription, I would go to the one with common sense.
Personally I have been to 3 PHD/MD's for an issue of which they have about 25-30% agreement as to condition & treatment which leaves a lot of space for disagreement.
Personally, I have 2 sisters that are RN's & some of these doctors that they talk about should be sued, fired & cooked over a charcoal grill, BUT they got their M.D.'s which means a lot, on paper.
I have had a DOCTOR in an O.R. that diagnosed a hand injury as a 'sprain' & treated me with an Ace Bandage for 6 weeks but the injury was in fact a BROKEN BONE that NEVER healed being treated as a sprain & is still broken to this day which has lead to very avoidable arthritis.
So from MY experience, YOU & your argument can kiss my butt.
The primary reason to go to a "medical doctor" with 'book learning' is procedure/insurance reasons.

1st, I respect the office of president of the United States. Next; that does NOT mean that the person in that office deserves that respect that the position warrants.
2nd Being a president is what the kool ade drinkers rely on. That does NOT mean that the pres is NOT a brain or jackass.
In our current situation, the person occupying the office of president is a total jackass. Many zoo's in the world would love his DNA to perpetuate the species.
Personally, that species can become extinct & we would ALL be better off.
To briefly clarify...Obama is a witless, butt kissing, them or us idiot. With IDIOT being the key word

Interesting. The reverse would be true too which would include YOU. Interesting....

You mean like less jobs, higher unemployment rate than the rest of the country, an 8 billion dollar debt? Is that what you consider "get on with our own?"
Sorry, but I like the way things are going now in Ohio. A smaller unemployment rate than the rest of the country, slimmed down spending and thus, an eliminated debt, more companies and corporations considering out state for new business, and current businesses deciding to stay in Ohio rather than leave for higher grounds.
But why would we want that--right? Let's go back to the way things were before Kasich.
Debt means no money. Debt likely means stressed credit. Debt means failure. Why any fool would elect failure over success is really beyond my ability to understand.

Maybe what we have is "a failure to communicate." I'm not saying that education makes a person a better human being in general. I'm saying that education helps us to learn difficult, specific skills. I want major bridges to be designed by mechanical engineers, not some untrained person who has lots of "common sense." When I'm sick, I want to see a medical doctor (usually one who spent many years learning about the specific part of me that hurts.)
But I don't think these people are "better" in the sense that they are great human beings. I'm sure some are unpleasant in their private lives, and others are nice folks. Education doesn't change that. But they are "better" in a specific skill set that helps humanity. I respect them for the effort it took them to get there. It doesn't surprise me that they often get paid very well for what they do.
#20308 Sep 8, 2013
That's a much different perspective than I have where I respect anybody who works for a living and tries to better themselves be they a ditch digger or a rocket scientist. We live in a country of loafers promoted by your President. Those are the only people I look down on.

Your education from slobbering over every word that Rush, Beck and Hannity spew out leaves you clueless.
#20310 Sep 8, 2013
No wooboy it is not the ones you blame it is the Conservative points vs your Liberal points. The Liberals have the same category in their team. One would be Rafeal Madcow.
#20312 Sep 8, 2013
The people who are clueless are those who use Rush, Hannity and Fox as some sort of argument instead of bringing something of substance to the table.
You leftists don't even realize how you've been brainwashed by your leaders to respond that way like a programmed robot.
Conservative tells the truth.
Response: Rush, Hannity Beck.
Conservative points to something Obama did wrong.
Response: it's the Republicans fault.
Conservative criticizes Obama's actions.
Response: Republicans are racist.
You people are so much like a machine I bet I could tell you what your response is going to be before you even post it. I don't know if there's an individual thought among any of you liberals.
#20313 Sep 8, 2013
I agree with you. I could pass for a lefty liberal if I chose to because they are like programed robots and every single sentence is predictable. But, a liberal could never even fake being conservative because they don't have the intelligence to even fake it.
#20314 Sep 8, 2013
Plenty of facts here. EXCELLENT !
#20315 Sep 8, 2013
A couple of years back, the liberals were talking about getting their own leftist Limbaugh, so Rush commented on their idea.
Rush said the left could never duplicate him. The reason being is that it's the liberals who are the entertainment on his program, and a leftist Limbaugh would never be able to do that with Republicans.
I thought about it and he was absolutely correct. Much of Rush's show is sound clips or articles of Democrats. If it's not something they said today, it's something they said years ago. It's what Democrats are doing or what kind of scandal they're involved in. It's always something with Democrats.

Did pops notice the airline derulation, or the trucking deregulation, or the Iraq war, or the Katrina handling , or the read my lips, or the wall street failure,or the 911 , mission accomplished , or the Haliburton payola, that ALL happen under Obama----0r was this truck driver born---LAST NIGHT!! How about the 350 pieces of dead wood in congress? GMAB!!
#20318 Sep 8, 2013
You think so?
#20319 Sep 8, 2013
Perhaps you didn't notice Benghazi, fast and furious, our forever slumping economy, fake money that made gasoline, groceries and just about everything else more expensive, the federal government taking over 1/6 of our economy, record number of food stamp recipients, Obama phones, healthcare insurance premium increases, the expanded number of people on SS disability and we won't even talk about the 17 trillion dollar debt that includes a near one trillion for a failed stimulus program. And that's only a little over four years of one Democrat.
#20320 Sep 8, 2013
. Who started the stimulus program ? Slumping economy? Inflation ? Resulting in food stamp or starve! The phones are not Obama phones- your wrong on that too! Healthcare money, going straight to Obama, too? If your not a truck driver, like POP's, your dumb enough to be! Just saying!
#20321 Sep 8, 2013
Oh goodie. Another liberal. Easy to tell with the personal insults and this is only your first day here. What a surprise.
Let me explain Bush's stimulus program and DumBama's. Bush's program targeted businesses. Lowering taxes, giving tax breaks for business investments sparked a great economy in spite of the worst attack on American soil. DumBama's stimulus? Handouts to public workers for about a year. Failure. A slight cut in Social Security contributions which is another program going broke. Failure.
And yes, it is a slumping economy. Been that way for over a half-decade now and it's not getting much better. The only reason unemployment is dropping is because of the so-called people out of the job market. Businesses resist investing when we have the most anti-business President in our lifetime.
While DumBama did not start government paid cell phones, he greatly expanded the use of them. Healthcare increases are due to Commie Care; another program that shies businesses from future investments. Part of the government control was to force insurance companies to invest their money the DumBama way. That is to say they are forced to payout 80% of their premium collections on actual medical payments instead of investing their money to offset future medical expenses.
47 million Americans now collecting food stamps. I thought the lying liberals said our country is moving in the right economic direction! Wait a minute! I think somebody is trying to fool me.
Dumb enough to be a truck driver eh? So what do you do for a living that you can cast that typical condescending attitude towards a working man? That's okay. You don't have to answer. We all know liberals look down on the working man and embellish the lazy and irresponsible. I guess that's why over half the country today is dependent on some sort of federal government goodie. After all, when you promote irresponsibility, don't be surprised when you end up with more irresponsible people.

Anyone notice how many breaks were in the film because of editing? Then there's the fact that Jon Stewart is primarily a comic?
#20323 Sep 8, 2013
What an intellectually deficient poster you are. 1st, I am NOT a truck driver although I see no denigrating issue being a truck driver, How in the world do you think that your grocery stores or Wally World or Target get the products that you buy every week?
Inflation IS ongoing. It will never go away. It is what it is for years & years & years.
Next, until Obama, NO ONE advertised to expand the welfare rolls. NO ONE solicited for cell phones either.
By the way, as I have posted B4, I have had food stamps twice in my life. BOTH times were temporary for medical reasons. I did NOT get onto the lifetime roll & I was frugal & still used coupons & other specials & got the max out of my 'stamps'. "Welfare' is ASSISTANCE' NOT support. NOT a life style, NOT long term. But with THIS administration welfare has become a life style.
Know what I learned? Food stamps lasted me 7 weeks for what I usually spent in 4 weeks for food.
And in your 2nd to last sentence about truck driving, it's YOU'RE, NOT your.
A real mental heavyweight aren't you?
Give truck drivers a break or ride a horse & wagon to make your next purchases. See how that fits into your life. PUTZ
#20324 Sep 8, 2013
The Lifeline program started under Ronald Reagan, and was expanded by Bill Clinton. George W. Bush was the first to extend it to wireless phones. The solicitations you see for "free phones" come from private companies, not the government.
It's just an extension of the old idea of "universal service." Cheap mail service to rural areas was subsidized by the urban users, because the government felt it was important that all citizens (not just those in cities) should have equal access to communications. The same idea was eventually extended to phone service, which again subsidized expensive-to-build rural phone service by charging urban users more.
"Universal service is the principle that all Americans should have access to communications services. Universal service is also the name of a fund and the category of FCC programs and policies to implement this principle. Universal service is a cornerstone of the law that established the FCC, the Communications Act of 1934. Since that time, universal service policies have helped make telephone service ubiquitous, even in remote rural areas."
It's a good idea, one that has been endorsed by both Democrats and Republicans for many years.
