    That's what Hitler did to Jews who tried to leave Germany.

    Allow me to be more specific: using the text of Section 1233--the death panel section--show us how it's such an important part of the bill and how it's removal harmed people.


    In other words, you are merely looking for an excuse.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    IOW, I'm waiting for you to prove me wrong, which you're drifting father way from with every post.

    And a government bureaucrat will be right there to provide that information and the wise decision!

    So are police and firefighters. And regulations can be found for food, transportation, or nearly any thing that can adversely affect the consumer. And those are not under the direst of a serious illness.

    So, spare me your tripe.

    No. A doctor. You guys never get this right. You have more. To fear from your insurance provider, who really is between you and your doctor. And he works for your employer, not you.

    While willingly conceding that you may genuinely have more familiarity with true nuts, I think most reasoning folk would be hard put to call Dr. Carson a nut... if that were so, better get your blind donkeys to start rutting around for one anywhere near as effective...



    Dr Carson may be a decent Doctor, but he will never be President of the USA.

    Police officers and firefighters are employees of the state, so of course they are told what to do by the state. Things that are privately owned and operated the owners have the right to operate in the way they see fit and provide the service they desire to offer without being told what to do by the state or having to get approval by the state.

    So, spare me your tripe.
    Human rights are not tripe.
