A brief history of medicine...

Boycott this, boycott that...

Boycott anything that is open on Holidays!

Seems to be how most people think.

But none of you have said we should boycott hospitals. They were open on holidays. They are always open on holidays. Think of all the doctors and nurses, forced to stay at at the hospital instead of being home with loved ones.

If your going to cry out "Evil to make people work on holidays!", then don't be a hypocrite. Shame them all equally.

Edit - Since everyone else is going crazy over this, figured I'd throw in some crazy of my own.

Guess what folks? Someone made a game about Sandy Hook!

[quote]An uproar of criticism has erupted following the release of a new online video game that allows players to re-enact the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Entitled “The Slaying Of Sandy Hook Elementary,” the game retraces the steps of gunman Adam Lanza, according to CBS Connecticut. It instructs players to “Shoot Mother” and “Get AR15 and clips,” before sending the silhouetted gunman into the school to open fire on teachers and first-graders, the Hartford Courant reported.

The game then switches to the school, where glass breaks as Lanza shoots his way into the school. Gamers are then given 10 minutes for Lanza to go into classrooms to shoot students and teachers. After the time is up, Lanza kills himself in the video game as a police arrive notice pops up on the screen, CBS Connecticut reported.[/quote]

I can see the point that the person was trying to make, but really... How can anyone think a game like this would be a good idea?

Idea to bring back some American Jobs...

[image][/image]

Lets make a new law about how the American Flag can be used, or at least manufactured. I'm thinking something like this...

Any item that has a representation of the American Flag, or previous versions (Including the Confederate Flag and varients), on it, and is intended to be sold in the US, must be made in the US.

Simple ja?

Democrats would agree to it I'd bet, brings back some jobs at least. Convicing Republicans and their crazy cousins the Tea Party would take some effort, but I don't think it would be to hard to do so. We'd just need to word things the right way - Imply that allowing our symbol to be created in other countries serves to weaken us.

We'd just need a name for the law. I was thinking the Flag Act, but we've already got that... Actually, since that law is about the design of the flag, we could add this as a amendment to it. Or something.

Toon like this?

I was thinking about the old Conservative cry, one that many still repeat, of Government Death Panels.

So I was wondering - Is their a toon of Cruz dressed up as a doctor, with uncle sam on the operating table, and Cruz is saying kill him?

I'd think that someone would have drawn that up during the shutdown that he pushed for, but I haven't been able to find one.

Speaking of entitlement...

Republicans are somewhat correct about the necessity of entitlement reform. I think I speak for a lot here when I say that we really, really, need to take a look at reforming congressional entitlements.

Pokemon and Politics...

I know, this sounds crazy but...

With as bogged down as the healthcare exchange sites are, does anyone else think that some RW/TP groups have decided to ddos them?

We shutdown now

As chosen by the House, who decided to end voting for the night, we will now have out first government shutdown in over two decades.

This shutdown plays just like the last - Democratic President, Republican controlled House, and (In part) over health insurance. What was that saying about history? Oh yeah, Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

The ironic part about the shutdown is that even with it, the ACA will still go into effect. A shutdown wouldn't have affected it, but a shutdown would be a raised middle finger. Basically, the shutdown was out of spite.

In the most basic terms I can put it - The baby didn't like it's food, so it decided to throw up over everything.

What does the US have against Chemical Weapons anyway?

Have they seen what goes into food these days? How about cigarette smoke? Car exaust? Smoke stack exaust?

If a dictator wanted to use chemical weapons, he could easily make a new one with the chemicals that make up cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and smoke stack emissions. Oh, and lets not forget topping the tank off with a wide plethora of preservatives... to keep the toxic brew nice and fresh.

No country could say a fucking thing about it either - The weapon is made up of nothing more then what they allow their own civilians to be exposed to, daily, for their entire lives.
