It's called "parenting." Look it up sometime.posted @ Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 23:07
Being liberal is tough enough,
but to be a Democrat has to be really hard.
Counter to human nature and ludicrously oblivious to reality.
Dozens of building cranes at UGA is visible evidence the money still flows in a torrent. Spending is up, way up, and there's still hot competition for every seat there. Quite a game.posted @ Sunday, September 15, 2013 - 12:11
Beating up on Paul Broun, someone who has earned an MD and is a member of US House of Representatives, from those who voted for Barack Obama.
Checking out "Nation and World" "news" at the ABH.
Um, civil war in Egypt?
Ah, never mind.
It's going to be bad, get worse, then collapse.
It didn't have to be this way, but it is.
It's called "good intentions by complete amateurs."
One year anniversaries are tough yet vitally important to get through fora healing process to mature, not just get shoved into the denial closet.
God' s blessing on the Huff family
A fine man from an era past.
Schools were about producing adults from children then.
Mr. Sanders cared about that deeply.
The words "show the world" appear.
Uh-oh, taxpayers, here comes the pitch.
"You're on your own."
That's a good thing.
Besides, it's reality.
This all depends on the cooperation of the medical community as well as the big players. Since the government has basically hijacked the insurance aspect of the consumer pool, the end-user, aka the client -- what used to be known as "patients" -- no longer has any clout but to trust the largess and qualifications of the provider -- who used to be known as "the doctor."
This is a good start. The working poor, those who are willing to make at least an effort to underwrite their own health, can at least negotiate some clear idea of paying something concrete toward their care.
It's a no-brainer for the hospitals, who can at least recover their billing and infrastructure costs.
1. E.J.'s last line is correct: When (not "if") ObamaCare fails, it will have at least addressed a serious problem in the richest country in the world.
2. Liberalized benefits work in many countries of the world; they fail miserably in at least as many more. The more heterogeneous the population, the less one size fits all.
3. Assuming that people will uniformly pay for services at par value when available at a reduced rate just on a say-so is magical thinking. Those of us who are actually familiar with the delivery of health care to real people are numbingly familiar with how free- or reduced-cost services are abused.
4. In the real world, goods and services are respected in the order of what they cost. It may just be the effort of showing up on time, living with healthy habits, quitting expensive bad habits, following suggestions, etc., but those are all costs as real as writing a check.
5. Doctors should make a great income. It's a tough job when done properly. However, the disparity between how some are paid versus others creates some animosity and fatigue.
6. This should not be a political process, but a moral and humanitarian one, addressed by clients and payers by consent and not decree.
Another in an endless series of left-wing editorials
masquerading as a news article.
AP and the ABH, bringing some of the news
spun through the lens of bias for fun and profit.
@Malcom Merriweather: Money, as usual.
This is all so last century,
But, for right now, serves its purposes:
1. More free stuff and money.
2. Avert attention from the melt-down joke that is leadership in America today.
"It's a sellers' market!" all over the radio.
Uh, not exactly.
Still fall-out from Community Re-Investment Act of the Carter Administration.
Blaming it on anything else is smoke, a specialty of the Straw Man Crowd.
Lots of stuff fits where the moon don't shine.
Why they search.
"As time goes by, we'll see this law acquire a more bipartisan complexion."
Wishful, inaccurate, disingenuous, wrong, specious, and revealing.
Another Twitter advert.
Checked in to see if anything clever from the Broun Bashers.
Not bad, so far.
"Some Win Some Lose"
It's called a democratic republic for just this very reason.
But basically a Twitter advertisement.
Closest article about the indicted School Chief
I could find in the ABH.
AP widely circulates yet another opinion
masquerading as news. Perfect for ABH.
It's so much fun when
the middle third of the nineteenth century turns up as a topic.
A few folks know of what they write, but
mainly it's just crap.
To the state, marriage is only a legal contract.
To the church, it is holy.
To which the allegiance?
It's not about the guns or even the violence.
It's all about the control.
Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
