People die on the hospital lawn for not having insurance?
O_o
Who? When?
LOS ANGELES — A woman who lay bleeding on the emergency room floor of a troubled inner-city hospital died after 911 dispatchers refused to contact paramedics or an ambulance to take her to another facility, newly released tapes of the emergency calls reveal.
Edith Isabel Rodriguez, 43, died of a perforated bowel on May 9 at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital. Her death was ruled accidental by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.

Relatives said Rodriguez was bleeding from the mouth and writhing in pain for 45 minutes while she was at a hospital waiting area. Experts have said she could have survived had she been treated early enough.

NEW YORK — A woman who died unnoticed on a hospital floor in an upsetting scene recorded by security cameras was killed by blood clots caused by a long period of physical inactivity, according to the city's medical examiner.
Esmin Green, 49, had been sitting in a waiting room at the city-owned Kings County Hospital Center for nearly 24 hours when she collapsed from her chair and slowly died on June 19.

She lay on the floor at the Brooklyn hospital for an hour before a nurse finally checked her pulse.

After an autopsy and weeks of tests, the medical examiner's office concluded Friday that Green was killed by pulmonary thromboemboli, blood clots that form in the legs and travel through the bloodstream to the lungs.

----------

(Reuters)- Nearly 45,000 people die in the United States each year -- one every 12 minutes -- in large part because they lack health insurance and can not get good care, Harvard Medical School researchers found in an analysis released on Thursday.
"We're losing more Americans every day because of inaction ... than drunk driving and homicide combined," Dr. David Himmelstein, a co-author of the study and an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, said in an interview with Reuters.

Overall, researchers said American adults age 64 and younger who lack health insurance have a 40 percent higher risk of death than those who have coverage.

It happens all the time.

In the juvenile court system, it's called neglect.

And when the neglect places the child at risk to their physical or emotional well-being, the child can be pulled from the parent.

Why do I have to pay for everyone else's kids education ?
Because politicians want to get re-elected. Each time we ask the Government to do something for us it gets bigger, costs more, gets more powerful, does less and wastes more. And that makes it easier for stupid people to ask the government for something more.

"Not buying it. My gut tells me that you're all secretly christians deep down, and that god's mighty hand draws you to topix."
Lol

Close.

I think it's your curiosity about God that brings you here.

It's a good, let's talk about God.

So if your baby wanted to wear that plastic bag as a hat, you would do nothing.
Only a moron like you RR would let a baby play with plastic bags.

When my son was less than a year old, he drew what could only be described as a whale.
It was weird. He shouldn't have been able to draw anything, but he did. It was crude, but it was a masterpiece coming from such a young kid.
Nowadays he can draw, color, paint, whatever like a pro. He's always had a gift for it.
He was coloring, or playing with crayons anyway, before 6 months old.
It was obviously a drawing of his mother.

And so do adults.
When a commercial aircraft's mechanisms detect a serious problem, such as a glide slope that may cause the plane to make impact with a mountain, or the ground, an automated voice warning sounds, for example, "Pull up, pull up."
A female voice is used for the warnings, on the theory that people respond more quickly to female than male commands.
Is that what the guys told you over at the bathhouse?

<quoted text>I doubt Dawkins would bother with Topix but some of his acolytes definitely have been on here, pushing his agenda, conversion. I've had several show up in real life, since 2009, before I was even registered. Talk about determined, obsessive-compulsive nutjobs! They've made a point of following relatives of mine around for a long time now, even as far as my mom in Vegas and my aunt and cousins here. It's eerie when they make a point of letting them know that they're being watched.
Strange, but I'm just now reminded of a scene in Damien where the "followers" were massed together, looking very *determined* and committed to identifying and targeting *certain* people. Ooooh, goosebumps!
Did you read that link I posted about the violent "proud atheist"?

Weren't his words and rationale eerily familiar? That is why I asked if we were missing anyone since he was arrested. Classic Topix atheist.

Look at his criminal history. I can suspect many Topix atheists to have the same anger issues and lack of control. I sincerely believe there is pathology driving them. Not the devil, he would pick better product to represent him.

I have never visited a bathhouse.

I gained the knowledge in aircraft accident litigation (a lucrative practice, btw).

You must be thinking of your buddy Skom with that bathhouse stuff.

It's funny you mention that.

When my sons are talking about the mother to me, they don't say "my mom", they say "the whale".
