An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

In 2009, the protection of a shiny bait fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta has cost California’s Central Valley farm economy more than 35,285 jobs; $1.6 billion in revenue and a 40-percent unemployment rate in towns surrounded by parched fields.

Magnolia Regional Health Center CEO Rick Napper sees troubled times ahead for health care if the currently proposed reforms become law.
In a presentation Monday at the Corinth Coliseum, Napper said hospital closings, physician shortages and rationed care are all in store under the Democratic plans pending in Congress. He said he has spent much time reviewing the legislation and monitoring committee meetings on the reforms.
Y’see, things like this don’t matter to Obama, Pelosi, or any of the other socialists/marxists/whatever they are. As long as they destroy, control, and enslave, that’s all that matters.
“The damage will be immediate,” said Napper. “You will see hospitals and physicians starting to react to that plan in January 2010. I know we will. We’ve got scenarios set up based on which plan goes through.” Napper said he does support the concept of health care reform but likened the current proposals to the Titanic.
Yep, we’ll sink a LOT faster than the Titanic too. Right now, I see us scrambling for the lifeboats, and there just aren’t enough. How many doctors have you heard say they will be getting out of the profession if this goes through? I’ve heard a LOT, but that doesn’t matter to the weasels either, because once all the old folks are unable to get health care, we won’t need as many.
He said what the public is hearing about the proposed reforms omits critical details. “I do not believe any of the politicians are lying to you,” said Napper. “I just don’t think they are telling you the truth.”
Oh yeah, there are a LOT of tidbits those yahoos keep leaving out when they chat on MSNBC, CNN, or any of the alphabets. I wonder if any of those so called ‘journalists’ have bothered to read even a portion of this bill they are so hot to push on the American people, doing Obama’s bidding? Um….in other words, they actually ARE lying.
The hospital chief said the plans will essentially force hospitals to accept all patients at Medicare rates, which he described as less than the cost of providing the services. And he believes physicians who are in a position to do so will want to get out of the business. “Physician shortages will occur first in rural communities like ourselves because physicians will have to see huge volumes to make money,” said Napper.
I realize there are so many on the left who have this envy problem. But there’s a few things they’ve forgotten, like the many years that physicians have been through school, the loans a great many of them are still paying, the price of the equipment that is used, the rent on the building where you sit and wait, the salaries of the nurses, the receptionist, the electricity, the insurance, supplies, and any other number of things I can’t think of right now. Why do they want to drag down others? Just to make themselves feel better? If they want to blame someone for the increasing cost of health care, they should no farther than those who are trying to take it over right now in D.C.
My heart goes out to the victims of the Fort Hood and Orlando shootings and their loved ones. Senseless, senseless incidents. I will not go quietly into the night on this one. America needs to do something about idiots with handguns. How many more Fort Hoods and Orlandos do there have to be before our political leaders have the guts to severely restrict access to murderous weapons?
The attacker at Ft Hood was a MUSLIM TERRORIST. The guy in Orlando was just plain crazy. Comparing the two as the same thing was your first mistake.
IF the soldiers at Ft Hood had been armed, as they should have been IMHO, this guy wouldn’t have gotten past the first couple of shots. If workers in Orlando had been armed, this guy would have been stopped cold.
When are the ignorant going to stop blaming the guns?

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the gunman who killed 13 at America’s Fort Hood military base, once gave a lecture to other doctors in which he said non-believers should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats.
He also told colleagues at America’s top military hospital that non-Muslims were infidels condemned to hell who should be set on fire. The outburst came during an hour-long talk Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, gave on the Koran in front of dozens of other doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington DC, where he worked for six years before arriving at Fort Hood in July.
Could someone please give me a rational explanation of just why this excrement was not behind bars? That whole diversity and tolerance thing just doesn’t wash! The PC crap is getting our soldiers killed, not just here, but overseas as well. This is a WAR! You don’t let the enemy in the front door, and welcome them with open arms and roses!
