Is there some way that we could put these guys in charge of more of the nation's healthcare? That seems like it would be ideal.

Remember this the next time a politician tells you how absolutely urgently essential that we not bother reading legislation and pass something it's for the children/firefighters/troops/women/teachers pass it now now now now now (/the musical box).

Rabbitgod: BronyMedic: Murray Building in Oklahoma City

"If Chris Fields [the firefighter] can now be among the happy masses of red-hot Thunder fans, there was a morning he stood alone amid the rubble, in a photo that became a symbol of terror and broke your heart. That was Fields cradling 1-year-old Baylee Almon, the most enduring image of the Oklahoma City bombing." ~ From a USA Today article posted 06/11/2012[1] 

Don't talk out of your ass, even if it's part of your face.


Please feel free to fark off. I made a mistake, and it had already been corrected. A mistake that was made because the CISM class I attended falsely attributed him commiting suicide, not the cop.

Well that was a highly emotional piece of legislation where plenary power was doled out to Paulson and Bernanke...and all those banker criminals are still walking free.......kind of like gun control.

Gun control isn't needed... except for accuracy...

20 dead kids say you're wrong.

It'd be so much better if we had no guns, like in Rwanda. Then nothing bad could ever happen.

You're comparing a shooting rampage by one, probably mentally-ill, certainly heavily armed individual, with a genocide that took years to plan and months to execute? What kind of ignorant piece of shiat are you?

Why not compare it with the knife attack in China where 20-some kids were cut, but not killed, by a maniac who used the most readily accessible weapons?


Because the reason over 1 million people were slaughtered with machetes in Rwanda is because they had strong gun control there and the populace was undefended. That's why. I am no kind of ignorant piece of shiat. What kind are you?

"I think it's a disgrace," said Charlie, a Staten Island firefighter who developed leukemia and lung problems because of his work on the pile. "They promise you the world. I don't understand it. I guess there's a lot of red tape."

/ Red tape? No, i think it's rather that they don't give a shiat. They earmarked the cash to make themselves look good to the public. Anything after that is of no consequence to them. It's all appearance and PR.

This.

Greedy banks overextended themselves? "Oh sure, here's $700 Billion!"

9/11 rescue workers need long-term healthcare totaling $2.7 Billion. "Well now, we better stop and check to make sure there's no fraud* going on."


*Except for the fraud of the lawyers taking 1/3rd off the top

vestona22: Can't wait 'till they're in charge of everyone's healthcare. I'm sure they'll do much better at that.


It's cute how people think that providers won't be making decisions anymore, unlike now when hospitals are being told not to do necessary procedures because they won't get paid for them.

/Medicare's great. Nothing like not getting paid for a patient's Urosepsis when you took every precaution to keep them from getting one.

So is this the bill that the Church of Scientology wiggled their quackery into so that they could continue getting paid for providing sham treatments to Firefighters through their NarcAnon front group?
