comments that puts a different take on the issue of health care
 
                  . I got this as an e-mail.  It is a different take on the great national debate that was intriguing.
    
              Different perspective from my vision… I would of never even considered this one.
    hhhuuuuummmmmmm   
 
 

Please read this,

Pictured below is a young physician by the name of Dr.. Starner Jones. His short two-paragraph letter to the White House accurately puts the blame on a   "Culture  Crisis" instead of a "Health Care Crisis"..  It’s worth a quick read:
   
                           
       Dear Mr. President:
        During my shift in the Emergency Room last night, I had   the   pleasure of evaluating a patient whose smile revealed an expensive shiny gold tooth, whose body was adorned with a wide assortment of elaborate and costly tattoos, who wore a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and who chatted on a new cellular telephone equipped with a popular R&B ringtone.
       While glancing over her patient chart, I happened to notice that   her payer status was listed as "Medicaid"! During my examination of her, the patient informed me that she smokes more than one costly pack of cigarettes every day and somehow still has money to buy pretzels and beer.
       And, you and our Congress expect  me to pay for this woman’s health care?  I contend that our nation’s "health care crisis" is  not the result of a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or  nurses. Rather, it is the result of a "crisis of culture",  a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on  luxuries and vices while refusing to take care of one’s self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance.  It is a culture based in the irresponsible credo that "I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me".
       Once you fix this  "culture crisis" that rewards irresponsibility and dependency, you’ll be amazed at how quickly our nation’s health care difficulties will disappear.
       Respectfully,
       STARNER JONES,  MD 
I

  1. I’ve seen such things before though not as a medical doctor but just as another person that has been to hospitals before. I hate the lie of it all. We all want people who need medical attention to get it but as usual nobody wants to really pay the price for it…and we all will pay one way or another and the real kicker is I don’t believe it’s going to help anyone in the long run.

  2. there are many people certainly who expect to do whatever they want and expect others to provide their neccessities like people on welfare playing tons of bingo im sure angel eyes

  3. Yep, the needs of the few outweigh the resources of the many. Entitlements for all, then we can connect firmly with out communities as we are all slaves to our neighbors for our every entitlements of free this and that while taxes take all that is left. Too bad personal responsibility, hard work, and self reliance are out of fashion and lazy, free-loading, and enslavement is in vogue. They all asked for it, we refused to shout them down, now the hour is here and we all will have to pay for this folly.
