USA: Ron Paul’s secret weapon

Ron Paul and the Four Horsemen
by James Ostrowski

***Begin Quote***

Finally, Ron Paul’s secret weapon, Hillary Clinton, has all but wrapped up the nomination. Obama has run out of steam and Edwards is going nowhere. The prospect of another President Clinton will focus the minds of Republican primary voters. They need to realize that only a Republican who represents a sharp break from the Gingrich-Bush-era legacy of sleaze, corruption, bloated spending and belligerence can beat Hillary in November 2008.

Hillary’s enough to scare me.

She certainly would test theory that the President has a much power as the figurehead on a Viking ship to steer it.

Made she could actually out do her hubbie and get herself impeached and removed from office. She lost me a commodity trades back in AK. Now there is a felony she got away with. Just a tigers and leopards, she’ll run true to form.

NATIONAL: Gooferment healthcare taken to its logical conclusion

‘NHS should not treat those with unhealthy lifestyles’ say Tories
04.09.07
David Cameron will decide which of the Tories’ proposals to make policy
• Patients who improve their health to be given ‘Health Miles’ cards to claim free fruit and veg

Patients who refuse to change their unhealthy lifestyles should not be treated by the NHS, the Conservatives said today.

In a bid to ease spiralling levels of obesity and other health concerns, a Tory panel said certain treatments should be denied to patients who refuse to co-operate with health professionals and live healthier lifestyles.

***and***

“It is inconsistent with the concept of the responsible citizen to imagine that it is realistic for citizens, having paid their taxes, to expect that the state will underwrite the health implications of any lifestyle decision they choose to make,” the report states.

***and***

Other health measures outlined include incentives to encourage GPs to “re-engage” in responsibility for the out-of-hours care provided to their patients, without imposing “undesirable working patterns” on doctors.

***and***

The group also warns that public support for the NHS is under threat because of the “failure” to engage citizens in the drive to improve the service and to boost productivity despite the billions being poured into it.

***End Quote***

Now that they have taken the tax money under the guise of “national health care”, they want to change the “insurance terms”. If a private insurance company did ti, then the executive would all be in jail.

Aren’t people better off managing their own “health care”?

If you have certain risks, then you can mitigate them or insure them or take the consequences. You don’t need a bloated gooferment bureacracy to “help” you. Argh!

Sorry, count me out.
