Tort Reform That Caps Victim Compensation Will Decrease Quality Of Medical Service

Have you ever wondered why many are clamoring for tort reform? I bet personal injury attorney las vegas are not. Lawsuits are less than a 2% cost problem to our healthcare system. Yet many on the Conservative Right are using this tenet as one of the reasons to oppose the Healthcare Reform Bill. It is not difficult to understand why. After-all those injured by doctors are likely to be the poor while those injured by lawsuits are generally the wealthy. That is why in Sin City we would generally need a las vegas personal injury lawyer. I am sure you know you can find them at www.lasvegaspersonalinjurylawyer.com The reality is if we really want a big bang for the buck, then we should create a two tier system for paying for healthcare. A basic level that all Americans are automatically enrolled in that is paid for by tax dollars. For those who want premium healthcare with the bells and whistles of comfort can by private insurance. Those serious about healthcare should love such an option. It is humane and it … [Read more...]

Rand Paul: Newt Gingrich ‘May Have More War Positions Than He’s Had Wives’. A Tea Party Stalwart Attacks FoxNews And Gingrinch In One Paragraph

  Freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tested his comedy act during a speech at the Congressional Correspondents' Dinner on Wednesday night, taking aim at Newt Gingrich with an edgy joke comparing the former Speaker of the House's recent flap over flip-flopping on his Libya stance to his number of wives. "I was happy to see that Newt Gingrich has staked out a position on the war, a position, or two, or maybe three. I don't know. He may have more war positions than he's had wives," Paul said, seemingly triggering more shocked murmurs than laughs. Paul then quickly switched gears, skewering Fox News for their position on Libyan intervention. "There's a big debate going on over at Fox News. It's really messed up, I mean they don't know what to do. They just really can't decide over at Fox News, it's like, what do they love more, bombing the Middle East or bashing the president? It's like, I was over there and there was an anchor going -- they were pleading, they were pleading … [Read more...]

Good Deterministic Healthcare Is The Difference Between Life, Death, And Bankruptcy

I was out of town yesterday and did not check my Facebook till late. My friend Julia, an SLE Lupus sufferer and Assistant General Manager And Programming Director of The Force 925, had gone to hell in a basket in less than a day. My wife has the same chronic disease so I am well aware of how fast one’s health can go south and the importance having good healthcare is for survival. Julia is in Canada and knows that no matter what, she will have good health care because their system values humanity over the dollar. Inasmuch as my family has always had healthcare insurance (though my wife SLE Lupus means much higher cost of a High Risk Pool), until the new Healthcare Reform bill has gone through all the legal maneuvers of the Supreme Court I can never feel safe. I can never feel that the savings I have accumulated is not at risk of my wife’s next flare, an illness of my daughter, or an illness of my own. Julia’s latest healthcare scare follows below and ends at her own blog. It makes good reading. Julia is the … [Read more...]

Presidential Proclamation–Cesar Chavez Day

We must know the country’s entire history and the sacrifices many have made to make us a better society. We should pause and understand what unions have accomplished not only for union workers but for all Americans of every stripe. We must not let the war on the middle class be effected through the unions or through any other means. I was happy to find that President Obama in these anti-union times found it fit for the following proclamation. In college as a member of the South African Liberation Action Committee, Caribbean Central American Association, Afro American Culture Committee, and Pi Sigma Pi, I still remember the reverence we all had for Cesar Chavez   The White House Office of the Press Secretary For Immediate Release March 30, 2011 Presidential Proclamation--Cesar Chavez Day A PROCLAMATION Our Nation's story of progress is rich with profound struggle and great sacrifice, marked by the selfless acts and fearless leadership of remarkable Americans.  A … [Read more...]

Bill Maher Says President Obama Executed Libya Policy Perfectly (VIDEO)

Bill Maher has given the most coherent narrative on President Obama’s action on Libya than any serious reporter or pundit. That our comedians are interpreting politics these days show the deficiency of our main stream media. This should give the news media pause. As comedians gain credibility they lose relevance. Their relevance is already marginal to the opinion pushers like Rush Limbaugh as Americans see no point in bland news without analysis. At least Limbaugh invents analysis.   My Book: As I See It: Class Warfare The Only Resort To Right Wing Doom Book’s Webpage: http://bit.ly/aB9Zkz - Twitter: http://twitter.com/egbertowillies … [Read more...]

Jon Stewart Uses Comedy To Factually Illustrate The Consistent Attack By Republican Governors on Workers And Middle Class

Why is it that our national media does not analyze the news and show national political trends laid out by parties that is missed by the majority of Americans? The Republican agenda is to diminish the size of government at all cost no matter who gets hurt in order to provide their benefactors, corporations, the wealthy, the oligarchs, & plutocrats, a near relative tax free environment. Follow the policy. More toll roads. More fees for service. Note that they want collective maintenance of all public resources though. America must wake up in 2012. 2010 must be the last time we fall for a rhetoric that ultimately destroys us.   The Daily Show - Gov Hurts Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook My Book: As I See It: Class Warfare The Only Resort To Right Wing Doom Book’s Webpage: http://bit.ly/aB9Zkz - Twitter: http://twitter.com/egbertowillies … [Read more...]

Texas Schools Increasing From 5:1 to 1:1 Teaching/Non-Teaching Ratio Lie REFUTED With FACTS

It is sad that we have a Republican Party that allows the dissemination of misinformation in order to effect draconian cuts on the Texas education budget. This is generally done to convince Texans that the budget cuts are there to cut waste and not actual education. Given the information below it is a categorical lie. These Republicans do not care that they will have a material negative effect on Texas children. Moreover they do not care that after all the blood from the education slaughter is actually seen by Texans, that they are likely to be summarily removed from office. They know that the the transfer of wealth they have effected on Texans will ensure that their benefactors will have a job waiting for them. The immorality of Republican politics in Texas will have a seismic effect on Texas and ultimately the Republican Party itself.
