Have you checked the national REPUBLICAN debt lately?


Since the Dumberncraps took over the Congress it's THEIR debt. EG

The Republican Party is paying its own way but the Dumberncraps still
expect their parent organization [The Peoples' Republic of China] to
subsidize them. VEG

CEOs are like Doctors in that they have to make all of their money
in a very short period.

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?


As I said before, some continue as "Family Practice Specialists" while
others do other things.

A lot of them go into Agriculture, the rest tend to go into Politics. G



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!


You must live in the Peoples' Republik of Kalipornia - the average GP
office visit around here is $35 and that gets split between the GP, his
nurse(s), and the clinic.

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.

TMT


ROFLMAO!!!

Shipping patients offshore?

People come to this area from all over the world just for the Medical
Care. G

If Jerry Lewis hadn't come to this area for his Medical Care he'd have
died over a decade ago.

Perhaps you are ignorant of the Texas Medical Center in Houston - the
"home" of the Texas Heart Institute, Baylor College of Medicine, M. D.
Anderson Cancer Institute, and many others.

You really should learn more about things before you start flapping your
mouth about them.

Close. I moved up a state 6 years ago. I'm now residing in the
Peoples' Republik of Oregon, an even more tightly regulated state.

Thanks gunner.

"Citizen" Jim needs to have someone explain, probably with small
words and simple pictures. how really stupid it is to wait until
something bad happens, and then launch a police investigation. I
figure a Tanya Harding episode applied personally might get the
message though.

And YOU need to have somebody explain in real simple words and
pictures that looking into the water bottles of every single airline
passenger and checking their shoes and wasting 30 million dollars on a
database that detains a U.S. congressman and a 6 month old baby as
potential terrorists, is NOT going to stop the terrorist threat so
long as our borders and ports remain open or only partially guarded.

Neither is wasting one trillion dollars in a war waged in the wrong
county.

The Left Coast seems to be trying to "out-socialist" New England. g

Here in Texas, the UberSpecialists - the ones with the highest Malpractice
Insurance Premiums (and, thus, fees) - congregate in Dallas and Houston.
Rural areas - like where I live - attract Physicians who are willing to
charge less since the cost of living is much lower. G
