Health, Wealth And Stealth

The title of the article (Doctors offer to treat dying Winnipeg man after colleagues refuse) implies that some doctors aren't doing their job, then you read the story and one has to wonder which doctors were being the most compassionate. And whether or not the family can deal with reality and let their father go with dignity.

When I was in high school our gym teacher said that the most effective way to lose weight was to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like prince and dinner like a pauper. Looks like she was right.

Of course there's a floor in the never ending effort of corporations to make as much money for themselves as possible. It's called slavery.

The willful incompetency displayed in our dealings with Pakistan just never stops. I wonder where those helicopter engines went to?

Sympathetic my ass. Can we say patronizing? A period of adjustment? Maybe she's tired, maybe she's getting surgery to remove the knives from her back, maybe she doesn't want to be any more of a hypocrite and be involved in providing telecom immunity. Maybe she's so disgusted that people fell for the promise of change that she knew wasn't coming, that she decided to let everyone see exactly what they are going to get. It's been less than two weeks since she dropped out and already he's pandering to the center by cutting corporate taxes, something that was never mentioned before. I am so not surprised. Maybe she just needed a vacation.

Will this man ever shut up? Very few Americans care what he thinks. Nobody wants to look at oil derricks at the beach. Except for the oil companies, which is probably why he wants it.



  1. Deb, until I enhanced the print size, I was going to take great exception to your statement, "Nobody wants to look at oil derricks on a beach." 'Cause first thing I did was check out THIS SITE and then mutter to myself, "Speak for yourself, Deb."

  2. Peter,

    That was a good one. Not my type though.
