Apparently you have not been on this planet long enough to realize that " Nothing is Free". This is a basic concept that never fails. Now instead of your ignorant attempts to question others intelligence try debating the issues.
I reposted the Link to Dr Emanuels article. Yes Rahms brother. The balance of it is available if you have a Lanncet password.Comment Posted By Dennis D On 8.08.2009 @ 20:37
I believe Sarah's concern lies in the following article authored by Rahm Emanuels brother Dr Ezekiel J. Emanuel as posted in Department of Ethics
Principles for allocation of scarce medical interventions
Allocation of very scarce medical interventions such as organs and vaccines is a persistent ethical challenge. We evaluate eight simple allocation principles that can be classified into four categories: treating people equally, favouring the worst-off, maximising total benefits, and promoting and rewarding social usefulness. No single principle is sufficient to incorporate all morally relevant considerations and therefore individual principles must be combined into multiprinciple allocation systems. We evaluate three systems: the United Network for Organ Sharing points systems, quality-adjusted life-years, and disability-adjusted life-years. We recommend an alternative system—the complete lives system—which prioritises younger people who have not yet lived a complete life, and also incorporates prognosis, save the most lives, lottery, and instrumental value principles.

Dick Durbin also used the Nazi reference claiming the protesters were using " Brown Shirt Tactics".Comment Posted By Dennis D On 8.08.2009 @ 20:26
The Bill is in many stages of development and there is zero way of knowing how much input is coming from Dr Emanuel or Holdren. Why would Obama not appoint Dr Emanuel? Of course he would.Comment Posted By Dennis D On 9.08.2009 @ 10:56

Yes many on the left cheered US Deaths in Iraq and wanted to photograph coffins to exploit them for partisan purposes. Every time the Iraq War death toll reached another milestone 500,1000 etc the left wing media was gleeful. Harry Reid declared the war lost 2 years ago. Wake up.
I think Steele should resign now before he does more damage. With him at the helm who needs enemies.Comment Posted By Dennis D On 2.03.2009 @ 22:37
I couldn't agree more however I do have a problem with the Peggy Noonan types who helped Obama win this election.Comment Posted By Dennis D On 16.02.2009 @ 21:06
Democrats won elections 2006 and 2008 without offering solutions. They basically bashed away at Bush and everything that was wrong. Obama offered very generalized " Restore trust in Government" types of things.
Newt should be the next President. America will look past his personal problems.Comment Posted By Dennis D On 2.02.2009 @ 21:48
The left successfully stifles debate on issues close to their hearts. Some want Global Warming denial to be a crime. Homosexuality is another. Most experts would be publicly flogged if they said Homosexuality was abnormal or a mental disease etc.
There are no "experts" who say homosexuality is abnormal or a mental disease. Anyone who says that is, by definition, not taken seriously in the psychiatric community and therefore, not an expert.
