CEOs are like Doctors in that they have to make all of their money in a

WhatEVER are you talking about? When's the last time you saw a
silver-haired doctor? I see pictures of them in the newspaper every
week. Most doctors have a 40 year run, minimum. (Unless they, too,
suffer heart problems like their patients.)


This past Friday - two of them, in fact.

While some continue as "Family Practice Specialists" [AKA GP's], the rapid
advance of medicine renders many specialists - including many Surgeons -
obsolete within 20 years.


So, do MDs in your area go out of business once their specialty has
run its course?


For that matter, large numbers of Specialists have elected to revert to
being GPs simply because of the insanely-high Malpractice Insurance
Premiums demanded for their specialities. [Neurosurgery, for example]


Ah, so they don't make money looking at 132 coughs, colds, sprains,
and abrasions every day...at $140 a pop? Poor guys!

OK, turn the volume UP, boys and girls.

Haven't had one in about 34 years, or any other alcohol for that
matter. I always had something else to spend money on, and you can't do
good work when you're drunk.

You need to find caps lock key and turn it off or did you mean to look
completely unhinged.

The boarders need to be tightened up quite a bit and I completely disagree
with the way the President and Congress has dropped the ball, kicked it and
then walked the other way to find it but if you haven't noticed the bad
guys are mostly focused on the middle east since we bitch slapped Saddam.
I'd rather have Al-Qaeda and friends over there trying to blow up people
and places then right in the US trying the same thing. *

I'm sure there are sleeper cells all over the US but since they are still
trying to prove we can be driven out of the middle east they've not spent
the energy to do more damage here which allows the Alphabet soup groups
along with homeland security more leeway in finding the ones here.

Bill...sleeper cells wait for the right time(s).

The fact that they ARE here and have not acted YET speaks volumes.

That fact keeps a lot of good law enforcement people awake at night.

How in your view is stopping them before they come over here and blow up
more stuff and kill more civilians a lack of depth in strategy?? *If
someone tells me that they are going to kill my family and blow up my
house
I'm not going to wait until it happens, I'm going to make sure one way or
another it CAN'T happen.


Because there's nothing stopping them *now* from coming over here and
blowing up more stuff. And there are fewer trained people here now to stop
them. Our defensive resources are busy, over there.


What? *You feel that our highly trained airport goons aren't any good?
That our holey border fences north and south won't stop the tangoes?

Bill, the whole idea that we're "stopping them" over there, so they won't
come over here, may be the stupidist strategy idea in the history of the US.
The people we're stopping "over there" aren't the same people who would come
over here, in the first place. Fighting them over there just increases their
incentive to strike over here.


Ironic, ain't it?

And we're wasting our resources fighting
thousands of them over there, when what we really need to do is to protect
against perhaps dozens of them attacking over here. See 9/11 for reference.


Awww, you were doing so well, too, Ed. The glitch is that we cannot
protect ourselves or our country from terrorist attacks, period. *We
can catch several (maybe even most) attempts, but we can't get all of
them. And that included both foreign and domestic terrorists. You or
anyone you know (or don't know) could cause any one of hundreds of
terrorist acts and nobody would be the wiser until it was over.
That's its beauty (when our military needs it) and terror (when they
do it to us.)

Agreed...it is good to live in a country where doctors just can't bury
their mistakes and move on to the next victum...err I mean patient.

If you have been paying attention, you will note that insurance
companies are now laying the groundwork to ship patients off shore for
medical care...all types of it. The little detail they forget to
mention to the patients is that if something goes wrong, there is no
recourse legally.

If you don't like it, you can always pay the total bill yourself.
