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.

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.- Hide quoted text -

Now who is flapping their mouth about things before doing his
homework? ;)

Be sure to thank your insurance company for putting profits before
your welfare.

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


GOP paying its own way?

Laugh...laugh...laugh...

What are you smoking dude?

The GOP just lost MILLIONS to internal theft by ....drum role
please....A REPUBLICAN!

Meanwhile the Democrats are raking in TENS OF MILLIONS while the
Republicans are scratching for EVERY PENNY.

Hmmm....now if one thinks about it...why aren't all the conservatives
reaching for their wallets and sending their money in to Their Exalted
Party?

Put your money where your mouth is...but first you might want to
remove your foot first.

Don't bet on it, booby.

The closest that they could come to it would be to anchor a hospital ship
offshore. [Remember Project Hope?]

With the current cost of fuel, it'd be cheaper for them to simply bring the
foreign doctors over here. G

For that matter, booby, there are enough foreign doctors practicing
medicine in the US to totally populate a 3rd-world country. EG

MY Insurance Company has already made it very clear - in the contract -
that they don't like me to go to a doctor that's out of state, much less
out of country. VBG

I am curious about one thing, Troll: have you EVER been proven correct and,
if so, did it concern anything to do with metalworking?


LOL...you flatter me.

Considering that you are going to so much trouble to attack me
indicates that my comments are right on.

Well, yes - agree. They have largely given up, they have seen their

Given up? *The little skulls filled with mush never started. They were

I disagree...the vast majority of young people I know are working
their butts off trying to get ahead.

Considering that they will be handed the largest debt in history
because of the stupidity of their parents, they will be paying for
that debt for their entire lives.

In reality we have failed them.

The Greatest Generation made it, our generation lost it.

Nope!

He elected to go there - he wasn't required to do so.

One good reason that he might have made such a decision would be to keep
his employer from learning the results.

Another good reason would have been if he'd wanted to deduct the travel
expenses from his Income Taxes, including his "stopover" in Bangkok's Red
Light District. grin

If THAT was the reason, he'd have even more reason to conceal the actual
purpose of his trip: AIDS treatment.
