    Dr. Toole: Well written but you will be called a paid troll or worse and there is no way you will convince the hard core supporters of your observations. I have seen the same in my part of the country and it will only continue to worsen. Sadly, government control and mandates has driven many good doctors and clinics to sell off and/or close completely. Obamacare is in a death spiral and it cannot collapse soon enough.

    Good luck explaining your plight to the leftie/socialists that haunt this forum.

    Thom, finally was able to call in. Told the screener I wanted to expand on the subject you were currently discussing. He said 'thats not the topic we're covering today', then hung up.

    What to do about the "press", or news media in general? The corporate model is broken. Government based reporting would be self -serving. Private web-based sources are proliferating. In essence, a co-operative model may be the best choice.

    News papers were originally supported by subscriptions and advertising. Advertising leads to compromises. A model in which the readers are also owners of the enterprise might assure reliable reporting. A suficient number of members is necessary to make the effort sustainable.

    Local or regional areas may be the way to start.

    As I said before, I'm not a lawyer. I don't know when killing someone becomes murder. In war, soldiers kill the enemy, but the killing is not considered murder.

    Abortion kills a life. Whether or not that killing is considered murder is for legal minds to determine. No matter if it is murder or not, the aborted life is ended.

    Federal law says abortion is not murder before "fetal viability."

    I understand your point about growth, but do you believe, in your heart, that it is murder of a person before fetal viability?

  • 10,000 Scientists VS. The Bible   2 days 20 hours ago

    By the way, the science is settled in the case of GMO foods. Just like progressives claim the science is settled on the issue of climate change.

    But the difference is that the promotion of GMO foods does not fit in with the progressives' political agenda, as confirmed by DdC. Its not because the scientific support isn't there. In fact, that's just the opposite of the situation.

    Otherwise, they could care less about science (see the support of transgenderism for further proof of this fact).

    Why do progressives hate the hungry people across the world?

    Legend, you would have others ignore the origin of both Daesh/ISIS and Al Queda. They are the awful progeny of the u.S. The sordid, bloody history of u.S. "interventions" is no secret nor are the responses to them.

    Insane Truths: a Vietnam Vet on “Apocalypse Now, Redux”
    by MIKE HASTIE

    ******

    On August 2, 1964, the Gulf of Tonkin incident occurred, which was based on a total lie, and the United States was launched into the barbarity of the Vietnam War.

    ******

    And this was not the first time, either. The u.S. false flag operations have a long history. Read this:

    History of American False Flag Operations

    Was 9/11 one of these u.S. false flag operations? It, based on a reading of u.S. history, is entirely possible.

  • Equality...   2 days 21 hours ago

    There are plenty of other attacks on innocent civilians by ISIS and Al Qaida that you seem to ignore is the reason that we are over there. We are not fighting Indonesia. Again I was dead set against Bush and Iraq. I was against the changing the mission in Afganistan by Bush. But that is out of my control. In real retrospect Bush would have never been elected if my vote had counted. Now we are even worse off.

    I watched it, Legend, just as I watched, horrified, the live news coverage as it unfolded. I followed the 9/11 Commission as it became unravelled and useless as it failed to follow leads and to question those who were closest and most likely to know the truth. I wrote to as many of those members as I could. No responses of substance from them, one or two anodyne responses from aides. Yes, I believe there was sinister involvement - commission or omission - by U.S. officials. The u.S. has such a history..

    I'll keep asking until one of you has the nerve to answer. Why do you hate hungry people? For the party that supposedly "represents" the interest of the hungry and supports scientific peer reviewed positions, your stance defies logic, and I daresay, defies science.

    What has happened to the democratic party in this country?

    Murdered is a legal definition, I'm not a lawyer, an not qualified to speak to your question. However, every aborted fetus would have become a person had not their LIFE been terminated.

    When does a fetus become a person whom you would consider murdered upon being aborted? Simple question.

  • GOP Makes America Cruel Again   3 days 12 hours ago

    The problem in the US is that the corporations implanted in our mind through relentless brainwashing propaganda (ads and paid 'news' and 'experts') that an universal health care system is 'un-American' and 'socialism'.
    Well, all this talk of freedom of choice is all about how the bottomless, greedy corporations can rip our all precious country off to their most convenient way and not choice for us.
    The corps adapted their mindset to us by seeing us people as the biggest liability. How dare we're getting sick and cost the government so much in healthcare?

    The idea behind most insurances is that many share a financial burden for saving SOME who pay into it for the case of an emergency. Inmost cases the insurances can make more money then which is needed for those who require aid from it.
    But health insurance is unique as we ALL don't get younger and require health coverage at SOME point. That's why corporations hate health insurance until they can skim off our all tax money for dictating us prices from meds to equipment and making THEM the parasites of the US health care system and those who don't contribute to it by paying their share for the common good.

    In Germany a health insurance is mandatory as a car insurance is in the US. But we have the pyramid up-side-down in the US as the filthy rich here don't want to pay their part to make America inspirational again by good example. We fought communism and socialism for decades and didn't realized how we embraced the asocial, inhumane side of unrestricted, total war from the corporations against our country in the name of bottomless, self-fueling addiction of greed above everything. Against its own population and even its precious environment and int he process on the rest of the world which suffers from the same issues.

    We need to fix those issues together and not just put restrictions back in place but also revoking corporate personhood which was introduced 1890 and which contributed as one of the keystones to the huge mess greed moved the whole planet into the mess we are in today by turning the world into a corporacy instead of a democracy were it is all about 'We, the corporations' instead of 'We, the people' as our founding fathers wanted the people being free instead of some tycoons and/or corporations which run everything these days including our government through both, from corruption riddled, parties which represent the interests for the billionaires and corps and not us.

    Universal healthcare must be a mandatory base for all. If you like better coverage as universal healthcare can't fix everything, you can choose a private insurance company. But health insurance is a MUST for EVERYbody as this lack of universal health insurance is the biggest disgrace of this country in every aspect as the lack of this basic human right for being treated as a human being and not left alone/behind is asocial, inhumane and simple despicable in every moral aspect our corporations lack 100% as unrestricted business does not have any moral, no compassion, no mercy. the only thing for them is the bottom line.

    If we engage them they move like a drug cartel elsewhere as they have in opposite to a small business or middle class business no connection to the local people they do business with. The only way to get this inhumane practice under control is to take control away from them like it was before 1890 and the big capital started to turn the whole world into a chain of wars and getting filthy rich in the process and pushing the people aside and put the profit in the center.

    I also posted this on facebook as well but thought I copy it here for a bit more exposure.

    10K. There is a big difference between a company that provides healthcare benefits that doesn't want to include paying for abortions to saying there should be no abortions. Are you suggesting that the government should determine what benefits a company has to provide to do business.

  • Can We Trust Gorsuch On Women's Rights?   3 days 13 hours ago

    If I were to witness the horror of a late term abortion, I have no doubt I'd be moved. At the other end of the spectrum, a woman swallowing a morning after pill would not move me in the same way. Tricky subject. No clear answer for me.

Trump Undoing Climate Protections - The Fate Of the Planet Is At Stake

Just as global warming appears to be reaching a dangerous new phase, Donald Trump has begun dismantling what little climate protections we do have.

He's calling it a win for workers.

But who's really going to come out on top?

West Virginia miners or the coal barons who've robbed their state blind?
