We need more beer summits, I agree, I got it! er, I mean, collectively we have surmised...
We should have National Beer Summit Day for Healthcare™. Maybe that would work as good as the rock bands we got to play before Obama spoke on the campaign trail last year.
Drink up! A round of vodka for everyone!
Hurry! Drink up before the Commissar returns!
Anonymous jokerThe American Medical Association has weighed in on the new Obama health care proposals.
The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception. Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted. Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, Grow up!"
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter...."
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. The Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.
Should we report it to Flag@whitehouse.gov?

Quote:[center]- A MODEST PROPOSAL -
CASH FOR CLUNKERS II
From: Citizen Jack Deeney
In which the proposer, mindful of the generosity of spirit and brilliance of enterprise demonstrated by our nation’s Central Planning Committee, all the while adhering to the general concepts that people are the riches of the nation and that the wealth of a country derives from the poverty of the majority, does hereby offer:
a proposed combining of two governmental programs into one, preventing the aged in America from becoming a burden to their children or to their country and for making them beneficial to the Public.[/center]
I have to. I adore Dear O'Leader and Nansky and our Many Titted Empress. If I were sarcastic I'd make, er, cracks about them.
The phone rings and the lady of the house answers.
"Mrs. Sanders, please."
"Mrs. Sanders, this is Dr. Jones at St. Agnes Laboratory. When your husband's doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well. We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband. Frankly, either way the results are not too good."
"What do you mean?" Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.
"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for HIV. We can't tell which is which."
"That's dreadful! Can you do the test again?" questioned Mrs. Sanders.
"Normally we can, but the new health care system will only pay for these expensive tests just one time."
''Well, what am I supposed to do now? "
"The folks at Obama health care recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town. If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him."

As someone who works as a doctor, the following is all too common.
From On The Fence Films
Now I am not arguing the US system is perfect, no system is. But theUS spends as much per capital on socialized medicine as we do! They have socialized medicine down there, Medicare and Medicaid. A single woman with 2 kids making under $30,000 a year is covered by Medicaid.
I have seen the frustration of not being able to get on certain medicine in Canada because its “not covered yet” - but is covered for those in government or working for government, of course.
Then of course we have idiot socialists like Ehrenreichof the LA Times in the US railing as often as they can on the unfairness of the public medical system down there. How there are rooms filled with crap from the last patient, long waiting lists etc.
Once you get past the emergency room, friends assuredus, the quality of care at County-USC is quite good. And it was, if youcould ignore the previous patient’s bloody bandages left on the base ofyour gurney, or the towels stained with urine — some wet, some alreadydry — that covered the floor of the bathroom on the ward. The doctors,when you saw them, were attentive enough. But seeing a doctor was no easy task.
If idiots like that think the same thing doesn’t happen up here, I have some great farmland in Alaska to sell you.
Time for a rethink.
