... we have a health care provider in town that i am very familiar with.  they have a fee for missing an appointment and not calling in...

That is the crux of the problem.  How far in advance must you know when or if you will be feeling poorly or have a booboo on your pinkey finger, so you can make an appointment to see your personal doctor?  Regardless of who you see, your family doc, the ER doc, or a Nurse Preaticioner play doc, they are going to sling two aspirins or a handfull of sutures your way.  Its sometimes called "Treat and Street" at least when the customer isn't within ear shot.  kathyp, My feeling is that if a customer with say a fish hook in his hand walked in the door of the doctor you mentioned, the receptionist would redirect that customer to the ER defore she or he asked for his name. 

The doctor patient relationship has been destroyed when no one was looking and it will never recover or be the same relationship it was before Congress, our Presidents, and the Court System came between you and your doctor.

Back to the VP Pick! The airways are a buzz with Biden's thorough trouncing of Ryan in last nights debate... The VP debates don't move polls anyway, but I am shocked at the surprise that news outlets seem to be portraying... Biden is a seasoned Politician and he did exceptionally well in the Debate with Palin 4 years ago..

Ryan on the other hand has spent 13 years in Congress accomplishing nothing... well almost nothing... he did get a post office renamed.  Not a single bill he drafted is law today...

Even nonpolitical types are telling me that they are aghast that the horse's pattotie knows as Vice-President Joe Biden is a heart beat away from the job of President.

Biden may have shoveled a lot of mangled red meat into the cages of the people who make up the Democrat Party's base, but his clown like performance didn't win over a single uncommitted voter because they typically are more educated, more articulate and more thoughtful than Joe Biden.

I also have not heard a single political commentator (not even the MSNBC Rachel Maddog types) claim any such victory.

However I do have a likely reason or maybe it is an excuse for Obama's poor showing in the October 6th debate.  Michelle is riding his butt again to give up tobacco!!! He sure looked to me like he could use a long drag on a Kingsize Kool.  evil

I tend to avoid our own mainstream media... This poll shows a clear "winner"

""Maybe there should be more questions and a test before we allow people to hunt and fish ?""

Bluebee, Here in NC, a democrat controlled state, you have to go to gun safety class to hunt a squirrel and kill it.

You don't have to go if you want to buy a gun to kill a yankee.   fishhit lau lau lau

I was not a Romney fan and was fairly ticked that I was going to have to vote for him because the young Marxist's mission to destroy this country must at least be slowed.  His appointment of Ryan, a solid conservative and a first rate mind gave me hope.  Romney's debate with aforementioned Marxist gave me confidence that the Republic might possibly be re established!  Ryan was too content to let Biden demonstrate his mastery of bullying and buffoonerly.  But, it was two against one with the moderator leading and bailing out good old Joe regularly.  All, in All, I have hope and was happy with Ryans performance.

I myself am not on the fence. But today I talked to a couple people that were on the fence. The Obama debate had them teetering,but Bidens performance left them fearful that if something happened to Obama that we could be left with a real nut case running the country. these people had never really known or paid attention to Biden before but were shocked about his performance last night. He was a real deal sealer one way or the other.
 One had commented that they felt sorry for his family after a public demonstration like that and mentioned that he bets his wife would never have allowed a student to act that way.
  I did not see much of it,but I intend to see a replay this weekend somewhere.But from what I've heard the moderator might well have been another debater with the Obama team.
I can say over the years that Jim Lehrer has been one of the more fair moderators.Others should learn from him.

Social networks or not, I imagine most Hussein supporters go to AJ for their news. It will always be satisfying to the muslims and there supporters.

That probably is a pretty realistic statement... BBC 10-15 years ago used to be pretty unbiased, but even they aren't any longer... Aljezeera puts out some really good reporting especially if you are focusing on their "Americas" news.

they are very biased and usually inaccurate when it comes to reporting US news.  however...their comment sections are very good in that they allow very open debate.  they are far better at this than US left wing sites.  + the debate is usually more civil than on US left wing sites.  same slant but higher caliber of poster...most of the time.

If you feel you must go to Beirut Lebanon to get quality news and reporting from al Jazeria, is it any wonder then that America has lost so many manufacturing jobs over the last twenty years.  Because if as some of you say MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and FNC are "manufacturing" trash and selling it as news, what then would you call (In Joe Biden's words) the "malarkey" coming out of Detroit and other centers of American Industry?  I view all social media networks as nothing but echo chambers whose sole value is their contributions on the fringes to a phantom median opinion.

AN APPROPRIATE SUMMATION COULD BE DRAWN FROM THE RYAN/BIDEN DEBATE.

i have watched Biden for a long time.  he's got a real nasty streak.  he gets away with it because of his aw shucks persona, but the real guy is a jerk.
