Ethics on display!

One case of fraud cost $7 million!!!!!

"A physician, a pharmacist and 15 others have been charged with bilking Medicare and Medi-Cal out of millions of dollars in an elaborate prescription drug fraud that resulted in the government paying over and over for the same pills."

"The 17 defendants, including Johnson and Phic Lim, the owner of Huntington Pharmacy in San Marino, are accused of billing the Centers for Medicare and Medical Services for $7.3 million in drugs that were prescribed and dispensed in the names of beneficiaries who never used them."

This is where common sense comes into play.

Iran has vowed numerous times to blow Israel off the face of the map.

Iranian children are taught songs calling Jews "pigs" that long for their demise.

Iran calls America the "Great Satan".

Iran supplied terrorists with weapons and funded terrorism against us and Israel.

Russia and China support Iran.

It shouldn't take posting a few websites for you to get Iran has no interest in doing what America is duped into believing they will do.

Transforming poorer neighborhoods into desirable real estate for the new elites often requires getting rid of the poor: jail becomes the new home for many.
November 25, 2013 |
The U.S. leads the world in prisoners with 2.27 million in jail and more than 4.8 million on parole. Minorities have been especially hard hit, forming 39.4% of the prison population, with one in three black men expected to serve time during their lifetimes.
How is it that our land, supposedly the beacon of freedom and democracy for the rest of the world, puts so many of its own people into prison?

There are Americans in jail all over the world because they broke a law in that country. He broke the law. Well I don't like the way women are treated either but the libtards on here say it is their religion. You cannot judge the world from the safety of the U S. They are a 7th century civilixation trying to exsist in the 21th century world. Education and the hope that the young will get tried of the foolishness is all we can hope. You know there are many Christians in this country that would do the same to others if the law allowed it.

HAMPTON, Fla.-
Authorities say the mayor of Hampton was arrested Monday after he was accused of allegedly selling prescription medication.

The Bradford County Sheriff's Office drug unit said it secured an arrest warrant Monday for Barry Moore, the mayor of the city of Hampton.

After determining Moore was at a home in Polk County, deputies said a coordinated effort between both agencies resulted in his arrest at 4:50 p.m.

During an unrelated investigation, the Sheriff's Office said a deputy received information alleging the mayor was selling prescription medication. That information was presented to the Bradford County sheriff's drug unit, which in turn began an extended investigation.

Deputies said the investigation revealed Moore obtained and then sold some oxycodone. Deputies said an arrest warrant was signed by a judge with a bond of $45,000.

You really are dumber than sh*t. Pain killers , approved FDA drugs, sold everyday on the black market.
In 2009, there were nearly 4.6 million drug-related visits to U.S. emergency rooms nationwide, with more than half due to adverse reactions to prescription medications – most of which were being taken exactly as prescribed. This is what happens in a society when doctors are over whelmed. They treat with pharma. This is going to be the entire western medicine model under O'bamacare. As O'bama said: take a pill. Kids love the anti-depressants, it isn't only oxy, Pile.
I would stop showing your stupidity Pile, I have over 20 thousand hours on this 'western medicine' and pharmageddon problem.
Continue on if you would like to look even more ignorant, as evidenced by your above post.

Obama Lies to Heckler

Obama repeated [an obvious lie] on Monday that he will not take executive actions to halt deportations of undocumented immigrants, saying that such unilateral action would "violate our laws." "We are a nation of laws – that’s part of our tradition."

Who the f**k is this guy trying to kid? He's violated "our laws" and traditions since Day One.

The ACA does not dictate to insurance companies which drs & hospitals are included.
"Affecting their choice" is a subject with any insurance purchase. Of course you check out the providers before choosing a policy.
I don't believe these people when they say there are no options that include their doctors.
the provisions of the Anti-American Communist Act force insurers to ration care and accept only doctors and hospitals willing to work for substandard reimbursement...

in fact, ObamaKKKare policies provide little real insurance, because often the copay is the only reimbursement received by the doctor...

Renaming Persia
What’s in a name?
The name Persia is actually a Latin derivation used mainly by Westerners to describe the region roughly equivalent to that of present day Iran.
In truth during the rise and fall of the Persian Empire the land was known to its people as 'Aryanam', which is equated to the current “Iran” in the proto -Iranian language.
During the reign of the Sassanids it became Eran – meaning "land of the Aryans".
Aryan:
Aryan by definition meant anyone speaking any of the Indo-European languages, including that of the Iranians. Unfortunately, with the rise of Hitler in the 1930’s, "Aryan" came to be associated with the Nazi definition: being of Non-Jewish Caucasian descent, especially the blue eyed, blond haired Nordic races that Hitler himself favored and hoped to make a master race.
Iran VS Persia:
In fact, in 1935, Dr Hjalmar Schacht, the Nazi Economics minister noted the Aryan origin of the Persians and encouraged the Persian Reza Shah Pahlavi to ask foreign delegates to use the term Iran, "land of Aryans" instead of Persia.
As the New York Times explained at the time, "At the suggestion of the Persian Legation in Berlin, the Tehran government, on the Persian New Year, March 21, 1935, substituted Iran for Persia as the official name of the country.
Defenders of the name change, point to its use by the Greek historians citing that "Aryan" means "noble". Many also felt that calling something or someone Persian was dated and somewhat restrictive.
There was a need to unify the people of this land under one nation, Iran, thus encompassing the other ethnicities, such as the Kurds or Turks, residing in former Persia. In its decision it was influenced by the Nazi revival of interest in the various Aryan races, cradled in ancient Persia. As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs set forth in its memorandum on the subject,'Perse,' the French designation of Persia, connoted the weakness and tottering independence of the country in the nineteenth century, when it was the chessboard of European imperialistic rivalry.
'Iran,' by contrast, conjured up memories of the vigor and splendor of its historic past."
This change, however, evoked much opposition and confusion as Persians felt that the term damaged their cultural heritage and aligned them with pro Nazi sentiment.
Additionally, all too often Iran was confused with their neighboring Arab state of Iraq, so much that during World War II, Winston Churchill called to enforce continuation of the term of Persia when dealing with political documentation. Even today, in an effort to separate themselves, those opposed to the current government in Iran continue to refer to themselves as Persian.
In 1959, the work of Professor Ehsan Yarshater, editor of Encyclopedia Iranica, propagated a move to use Persia and Iran interchangeably which was approved by Mohammad Reza Shah.
Iranians are not Arabs.

The rest of the world didn't believe the Holocaust was going on until they discovered the concentration camps and the horror Jews experienced after the war.

Even Hitler's top military plotted an intricate plan to assassinate him and take back Germany just because they knew about the Jews.

So how many atrocities have to be committed against people of another faith in other parts of the world before we gasp in shock?
