Given what I have read about that incident, it is frightening what happened and truly frightening when you think about what COULD have happened. There may be further information forthcoming that will put a different picture on events, but based on what we know now, the officers handled the situation very poorly and with extreme high handedness.(and my typical reaction is always to initially give police the benefit of the doubt)

Agreed.
Socialized medicine by definition has to be more efficient than allowing insurers to make a profit by skimming off the healthiest people, and charging as highest cost possible for the least benefits possible.
Someday we'll join the rest of the industrialized world and enact a one-payor system.
And if that happens be prepared to wait months for doctor's appts, months for diagnostic scans, months for procedures and be prepared for bureaucrats to tell you that you are not a viable candidate for the procedure/surgery/medication that you need or "that you know what, maybe this isn’t going to help. Maybe you’re better off, uhh, not having the surgery, but, uhh, taking the painkiller" as Obama told one woman in regard to her elderly mother getting a pacemaker.

Scare tactics only work for people that refuse to do there home work and learn the facts for themselves. Thomas Edison spent years and large sums of money to discredit Nikolai tesla because he invented ac power and it solved every problem Edison's had trying to implement his DC power to run a a country on the brink of a industrial revolution. Just think what if these scare tactics would have delayed or stopped our country from its early development into a superpower. If we continue this path of failing at education for our kids and refusing to deal with our health care system we will continue to lose ground in our economic race with the rest of the world.

"10 ObamaCare fumbles." Obamacare
If Obama was a NFL quarterback and fumbled in one game, he would be benched or traded.
If Obama was a National league baseball player, he would be benched or traded for striking out 10 times in one game.

Read my above post about Obamacare.

And Aggie is correct. I have friends in England who wait months on end to get medical procedures done. Also months for Doctor's appointments. The only quick medical service rendered there is an emergency.

If you call being realistic based on past history "scare tactics".
I suggest you look at the National Health Service website referenced below. Most informative are the comments made by people impacted by the service and the wait times they have experienced.

From the official website:
"You have the legal right to start your NHS consultant-led treatment within a maximum of 18 weeks from referral, unless you choose to wait longer or it is clinically appropriate that you wait longer."

From the comments:

"But I have been waiting for 20 weeks now.
When called up they say it takes 26 weeks wait time"

"I would like to find out why the initial waiting times shown here bear not relationship to the time for my appointment and I would also like to say that after me paying 11% NI and my boss paying 12% NI all these years I seem to be on the broken side of a contract when you cannot even complain if you have to wait up to 18 weeks to see a consultant for an heart condition that could had killed me if I did not kick up."

"This article made me laugh. If I hadn't laughed I would have cried. I'm waiting for surgery to repair a fast growing aortic aneurysm due to having Marfan Syndrome. The 18 week waiting time is a joke. I waited 8 weeks to see surgeon which wasn't to bad. Was told that the wait would be 3+ months. I've now been waiting 32 weeks since seeing the surgeon. So that's 40 weeks since I was told I needed surgery and still no sign of operation soon."

And those comments are just from the first 3 posts, read them all and see our future if something isn't done.

If anyone had any doubts about Obama's sorry foreign policy, the below gives a good example.


"On Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly called his counterpart in Egypt, Mohamed Kamel Amr. He had a question: was Amr still foreign minister? Kerry didn’t know the answer. According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Amr “had tendered his resignation hours earlier but agreed to stay on.” Kerry wanted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi to call new presidential elections, replace the prime minister, and bring others into his government. When Morsi said no, the coup was on.

The Journal notes,“The moment served to underscore the Obama administration's limited ability to steer events in a Middle East still being swept by political upheaval. A reconstruction of how the U.S. handled Egypt in recent months suggests that U.S. officials saw the standoff building but were unable to persuade Mr. Morsi to pull back.”

Now, the United States is viewed by the Muslim Brotherhood as the force behind Morsi’s ouster, and is viewed by the Egyptian military as an obstacle to that ouster.“We’ve managed now to alienate both sides in Egypt,” former State Department official Michele Dunne said."

Well, maybe Kerry was too busy thinking about his plans for the 4th. See links below.

Thanks for the great posts.
Watching your posts factually decimate our Right Wing friends' silliness is entertaining.
Watching them contradict themselves in intellectually painful contortions is even more amusing.
factually
Did you see Bushmaster come out of hidin to support the amnesty bill that is in the House? That should be proof all by itself that this bill is foul. I can't believe Bush is even riskin his neck comin into the spotlight. If I were him I'd keep a low profile. He's lucky he isn't in jail. I said I thought him and Obama were best friends. Mr. Obama probably promised Bush amnesty on the condition that he'd get his buddies to go along with the amnesty bill. Bush doesn't care if the Republican party will never win another presidential election if the bill were to pass. He's just probably tired of hidin. Ya know?

"Obamacare called ‘The fiasco for the ages’"

"The best the Democrats can say about Obamacare is that it’s an approaching train wreck, in the memorable description of Sen. Max Baucus of Montana. Mr. Baucus was one of the authors of the legislation and now he’s hurrying home to Montana for good, anxious to avert his eyes from all the hair, teeth and eyeballs soon to be scattered along the railroad right-of-way."

Aggie, you just have to consider what kind of person would push those silly judgment icons as his/her only response to your post. This person saw first, your name and then your link, Fox News. This person may even be jealous of your ability to articulate your thoughts without cut and paste nor non-stop repetition. Then, there is Fox News, you know, the network that dares to question or criticize the Dear Leader, Obama.

The term "hero" is over-used in this country. The man who saved a little girl from drowning, then lost his life is a true American hero. But, there are those who believe Chris Collins, the NBA player who recently came out as gay was called a true American hero. Obama even called the guy on the phone and told him how much he admired Collin's courage and referred to him as a hero. Then there is Eric Snowden and Private Manning both of whom have been called heroes.

So, Aggie, the idiot who pushed those buttons was unwittingly paying you a compliment, a compliment which is richly deserved.

You're right it is very sad that this type of forum quickly digenerates to the level of a school yard playground, with taunts, insults, spelling and grammar corrections, and personal attacks taking the place of substantive discussion. In such an atmosphere it does take guts to admit even the smallest error because of the good chance it will be used against you, blown out of proportion, then rationalized as "Hey, it's just politics, if you can't take the heat..."

Maybe if you took the time to KNOW what the Republican Party leaders are doing you wouldn't sound so stupid. You get information from sources designed to make you happy so you will tune in. Or in the case of Mr. Broun and others telling you the fairytales you believe to get your vote. They are all feeding you a line of BS. Here is a "news" story on what the real Republican Party is thinking, don't know what they will actually do but they know they can't win on a national level dragging you and your friends along. A lot of middle of the road Republicans have bailed on the Party since the Tea Party fiasco, myself included.
