The Comical Conservative
A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots
Attributed to Jeff Foxworthy:
If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
What a country!
How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America!

That's a pretty far fetched story lol.

From the Oklahoman:
Access to physicians in Oklahoma, especially in rural parts of the state, could become even more limited when the federal health care law kicks in next year and thousands of previously uninsured Oklahomans obtain coverage.
Shortages of primary care physicians across the state could lead to higher patient loads, delays in visits to the doctor and more reliance on other health professionals such as nurse practitioners and physicians assistants when the new health care law goes into effect on Jan. 1, officials said.
â€śAll of a sudden thereâ€™s an increase in the number of patients that have insurance,â€ť said Jim Bishop, deputy executive director of the Physician Manpower Training Commission, a state agency that administers programs designed to improve medical care in rural and underserved areas of the state.
â€śThereâ€™s going to be so many people flooding doctorâ€™s offices,â€ť Bishop said.â€śItâ€™s not going to make physicians happy.â€ť
In 2010, Oklahoma ranked 43rd in the nation in the number of primary care physicians practicing in the state with 2,817, or about 76 doctors per 100,000 residents, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges.
Andy Fosmire, managing director of the Rural Health Association of Oklahoma, said the shortage of primary care providers is worse in rural parts of the state, where access to health care could become more difficult under the health care law.
â€śThereâ€™s a lot of fear that 2014 is going to hit and all of a sudden 30 million people are going to appear at a primary care physicianâ€™s doorstep,â€ť Fosmire said.â€śThe potential is there. Theyâ€™ll have to fill that gap.â€ť

You have a fascination with douches,
homosexuals, and claiming Topix is
removing your posts.
You have mental problems.
You should be denied a driver's license,
the vote, guns, and water.

I heard on the news the other day that there are less people studying to be just a primary doctors. Most are going into a specialty field of medicine. The last place they want to end up at is in the rural areas of any state not just here in Oklahoma.
#44172 Jun 24, 2013
More patients with health insurance is going to make physicians unhappy? They most make enough money already.
#44173 Jun 24, 2013
How many hours a day do you work at your job?
A good Doctor is booked solid. That goes for a primary doctor or a specialist doctor. So why would they want more patients to see. I know when I get sick but not sick enough to go to ER I don't want a longer wait period in getting into see a doctor. And all they people that will be added into the flow of needing medical attention that is exactly what will happen.
#44174 Jun 24, 2013
Or maybe a good Doctor is booked solid because they doesn't spend enough time in their office. When was the last time Edmond was considered a rural community, 1960?
#44175 Jun 24, 2013
Yep, it sure has! In fact, unhappy enough they are going to do something about it and make more money in the long run!
If you think that then think again after you read more on the lastest discussion among many Doctors that believe otherwise...
Less Patients, More Money and Less Headache System Study already underway, lol.
Why Doctors Are Bailing Out of Health Insurance...
Cash-only doctors abandon the insurance system...
The Cost Explosion of Obamacare about to hit home...
$1 Trillion Dollars of New Taxes from Health Reform Coming...
A few Doctors that I have had casual conversations with say they are looking at doing the same thing and that takes the Government completely out of him and his Patients relationship. Like Doc told me, "In God We Trust, All Others Will Pay Cash".

I have not always lived in Edmond. I moved here 2003. I lived in Enid before. I drove back and forth to a doctor here in the Edmond, Mercy, and Integrist [misspelled] area long before I moved here. Enid is not exactly a rural area but it is not booming area either. But there a plenty of rural town around the Enid area and I know plenty of people in and around the Enid area.
Now when I got sick last Aug late the doctors I ended up with were working around the clock. My primary doctor, my surgeon and who else was involved. When we found out my husband had colon cancer 2004 all those doctors were working around the clock taking care of patients. So I do know plenty of doctors that are not horsing around.
#44177 Jun 24, 2013
Yeah, nice spin but that's not what the article said.
#44178 Jun 24, 2013
And this also supports what people have been saying about long waiting lines to see a doctor.
#44179 Jun 24, 2013
Oh by the way my Mother was a nurse for 3 Pediatricians in their office for 25 years and they were always busy. They each had 1 day off a week and never ever turn a sick kid away. Many times Mothers hours was not a 9 to 5 thing. Never shorter hours and getting to go home early if you get what I am saying.
#44180 Jun 24, 2013
In 1960 I was living in Enid Oklahoma and a Senior in High school.
#44181 Jun 24, 2013
Yes, there are a few Doctors that can cater to the rich, but I can assure you that it is the exception in the medical industry, and they don't work in rural areas that the article was referring to.
Look back at the article and give me a definition of the word could used in paragraph one and two. My definition is; I don't know if this is true or not.
I don't use the Oklahoman because I can buy better toilet paper than that. All they are about is scare tactics for the sole purpose of pandering to their owners agenda.
The only thing that scares me is what is this country going to be like 50 years from now.
#44182 Jun 24, 2013
Well the medical industry is not that way now. That is why so many have to rely on ER's.
#44183 Jun 24, 2013
Those were the good old days. To bad your money is more important than your health today.
#44184 Jun 24, 2013
â€śThereâ€™s going to be so many people flooding doctorâ€™s offices,â€ť Bishop said.â€śItâ€™s not going to make physicians happy.â€
Translate this for me please.ť

Just explain what you are saying exactly when you are saying my money is more important than my health today!
