Rants

MY WIFE COOKS from time to time, cleans up, has a job, is good in bed, and thinks Paul Smith is very funny!

SO WHAT IF Mitt Romney doesn't care about the 47 percent. He's against gay marriage and abortion. Isn't that all that matters in the Bible Belt?

ONLY JESUS CHRIST himself could fix George Bush's mess in four years!

I'M SO MAD I could spit! EBT cards used at strip clubs? Let's reduce that 47 percent down to folks who actually need help!

IF CHRISTIANS refused to buy tickets to sports events without prayers, what would happen? Prayer would return!

HOW CAN DOCTORS and dentists who work less than five days a week, with expensive cars and homes, complain about income under the Affordable Care Act?

MEDICAL BILLS for treatment should include a disclosure of what other patients (Medicare, Tenncare, private Insurance, no insurance) are paying for the same treatment.

ANDY BERKE: The communities are already meeting and talking. What do you stand for?

RAVITCH'S RESPONSE to question about magnet schools was spot on. They are exclusionary under the guise of "choice."

ALL THIS MONEY for public art and still only a handful of art teachers in public schools. Sad.

SALLY ROBINSON used "ghettoize" but apologized by saying she didn't know the meaning of that word. Foolish.

I bet after your wife read this rant, she turned to you and said, "I sure am glad I didn't marry that butthead."

I think the joke was funny too, the time and place were all wrong.

I seriously doubt if robinson didn't know the meaning of such a word. After all, she knew how to use it in a sentence. She just played dumb because she was called out. These people say what they mean and mean what they say, then they try to run and hide behind a cloak of ignorance.

Good point. Like most other extremely wealthy people in America today, doctors feel privileged and entitled to obscene amounts of money. They certainly deserve to be well paid, but many of them have fallen prey to the greed factor. I'm sure there are some who love their work and do it for the right reasons, but there are many who let money become their primary motivator.

In countries that have universal health care, most of the doctors there make less than American doctors but they are still extremely well paid, respected, and they live very comfortably. In addition, they report a very high level of job satisfaction because there is less stress in not having to deal with the red tape and headaches of insurance companies. They are able to devote 100% of their time to actually practicing medicine.

The almighty Rickaroo speaks again..... Man, you are so jealous of success. Maybe we should give you the loser ....I mean the sportsmanship trophy to make you feel better.

So, you are now deciding what doctors can make? You are a socialist to the bone. Are you a doctor? If not, how do you know how they feel?

Let me give you a lesson in capitalism 101...people should make what they can and what the market will bare. There is a law that says the if you want to send more money to the federal government you can do so. Why don't you set and example? Why don't some of these liberal fat cats and entertainers send all their nasty, corrupting money off. I am sure that if you think doctors, who we need, make to much money compared to say Alec Baldwin who we don't you are warped.

Every time you write something you prove again and again why some of us are so worried about liberals being in charge. You want the government to have the power to control free enterprise.

The problem in health care has nothing to do with what doctors make. It has to do with what lawyers make. Health care is so expensive because of the threat of frivolous suits perpetrated by unscrupulous attorneys. What we need is TORT REFORM. This would eliminate the useless testing and exorbitant insurance rates and lower the cost of health care. Just making the loser in a suit pay would change things overnight. Pretty simple...

Oh, I forgot, the trial lawyers are big dumbocrat contributors and they always get their way. Where is your social conscience now?
