  • American Medical Association endorses gun control

    06/13/2018 5:44:08 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 45 replies
    Axios ^ | 6/13/18 | Sam Baker.
    The American Medical Association has formally — and overwhelmingly — endorsed a slate of gun control measures, calling gun violence a public health crisis. Why it matters: The AMA isn’t as powerful as it once was. But in the uphill climb to frame gun violence as a public health issue, having the AMA on board certainly can’t hurt.
  • AMA Pushes 'Unprecedented' Gun Control Agenda As Congress Dithers

    Forbes ^ | 05/27/2018 | Bruce Japsen
    Physician members of the American Medical Association are pushing the nation’s largest doctor group to back an “unprecedented” number of measures designed to curb gun violence and coax Congress into action. Early next month, the AMA’s policy-making House of Delegates will consider nearly a dozen proposals on gun control and public safety measures in the wake of 28 school shootings this year alone including last week's at Noblesville West Middle School in Indiana. Action at the AMA meeting, which runs June 9-13 in Chicago, will put the group’s considerable lobbying clout behind legislation heading into November’s mid-term elections when gun...
  • 'No medically valid reason' to ban trans troops, American Medical Association says

    “There is no medically valid reason — including a diagnosis of gender dysphoria — to exclude transgender individuals from military service," American Medical Association CEO Dr. James Madara wrote in a letter addressed to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. The letter, sent Tuesday on behalf of "physician and medical student members" of the AMA, the nation's largest association of physicians, comes less than two weeks after the Trump administration released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under "limited circumstances." "The accession or retention of individuals with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — those...

    How much obesity has to be created in a single decade for people to realize that diet has to be responsible for it? - Dr. Robert Atkins, the much maligned early advocate of the low carb diets. There may be other things more important but I’m more interested in junk science this week; I blame Earth Day, Climate Change and Trump. In any event I thought you might like to know about this article related to your health and diet: Vegans Suck at Science.

  • Gigi Hadid apologizes in a handwritten note for mocking Melania Trump; guess who’s not buying it?

    Biz Pac Review ^ | 11/22/2016 | Nicole Haas
    Supermodel Gigi Hadid appears to be having some regrets. But, the American people are not buying it. It was only about 5 minutes into the American Music Awards show Sunday night when the celebs couldn’t hold in their Trump disdain one minute longer. In an effort to mock the president-elect and the soon to be first lady, show host Hadid did an unflattering impression of Melania Trump. Trump supporters and normal people everywhere who just wanted one night free from polarized politicking were quick on social media to condemn the poorly scripted bit. After a slew of backlash poured in,...
  • Awards show? The AMAs were a political hit job on President-elect Trump

    Fox News ^ | November 21, 2016 | Todd Starnes
    The music industry suffered a melt down on national television during the American Music Awards -- launching into unhinged, profane tirades directed at President-elect Donald Trump and his wife, Melania. Do not be fooled, folks. This was not an awards show. It was a political hit job on the president-elect. ABC censors bleeped out Chrissy Teigen's reference to "this f**ked up, f**king election." Green Day embarrassed themselves with new lyrics to "Bang Bang." "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA," lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong screamed to a crowd of adoring anti-Trump minions. Co-hosts Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah set...

    The American Music Awards took a pretty big ratings hit Sunday, falling considerably from the show’s 2015 rating and hitting an all-time low in adults 18-49. ABC’s broadcast of the AMAs drew a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49, down 31 percent from last year’s 3.5. It’s the lowest 18-49 rating on record for the awards, whose previous low point was a 3.4 in 2012.
  • What to Make of the New Study of Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law

    National Review ^ | 11/16/16 | Andrew Branca
    First, the paper conflates “homicide” and “murder,” and thus cannot result in valid findings with respect to “murder” in particular or with public safety in general. Second, the study contrasts Florida’s Stand Your Ground law with a set of four purportedly non–Stand Your Ground states. One of the four states in the control set, however, routinely applies Stand Your Ground doctrine in much the same manner as does Florida. This failure of methodology substantively invalidates the paper’s findings, and should have been identified in peer review long before publication in JAMA. (The widespread defects in the peer-review process of even,...

    Regated ^ | July 27, 2016 | Bryan Stascavage
    Donald Trump spent about an hour answering questions from supporters and members of the media today during his ‘Ask Me Anything‘ on Reddit. The AMA was titled “I’m Donald J. Trump and I’m Your Next President of the United States,” which received over 24,000 comments and was ‘gilded’ a record 103 times at time of publication. The number of comments is also a record and beats Obama’s AMA held three years ago. Trump answered a dozen questions, more than Obama’s AMA, repeating many of the same statements he has made on the campaign trail while offering more insight into his...

    The father of Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen has longstanding connections to prominent Islamist groups in the U.S., a document discovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism shows. Seddique Matin is listed as president of a then-new American Muslim Alliance (AMA) chapter in Fort Pierce in a July 1997 announcement archived by the IPT.The AMA sponsored several radical conferences in the U.S. and its leader, Agha Saeed, has spoken in defense of convicted terrorists, including Aafia Siddiqui (a.k.a "Lady al-Qaida"), Palestinian Islamic Jihad board member Sami Al-Arian, and Pakistani intelligence lobbyist Ghulam Nabi Fai.The Fort Pierce chapter is among 10...

    The organization is making lobbying for gun control a top priority. The AMA, the country's largest doctor group, also vowed to lobby Congress to overturn a decades-old ban on gun violence research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "With approximately 30,000 men, women and children dying each year at the barrel of a gun in elementary schools, movie theaters, workplaces, houses of worship and on live television, the United States faces a public health crisis of gun violence," AMA president Dr. Steven Stack said in a statement. "Even as America faces a crisis unrivaled in any other developed...

    Coach is Right ^ | 2/24/16 | Michael D. Shaw
    Two months ago, we posted a story describing how three healthcare-related non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are conspiring to undo hard-fought improvements in work rules, pertaining to surgical resident physicians. The NGOs in question are the American Board of Surgery, the American College of Surgeons, and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Leading the pack in this endeavor is ACGME, which just five years earlier did cut the number of allowable hours that these residents could put in. As it happens, the cut in hours was forced on the industry, based on outrageous violations in which the stated hours were...

    Could MotoAmerica be forced to run standard exhaust systems? If the EPA has its way, then yes. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is looking at making the practice of modifying a racing vehicle’s emission equipment illegal in the U.S. It is already illegal practice in the U.S. to tamper with or modify any part of a road-registered vehicle that could have an effect on the emissions it produces, now it appears the EPA is looking at applying that rule to competition vehicles as well. According to autoblog.com, the EPA’s proposal titled Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium-...

    WASHINGTON - Political apprentice Donald Trump is attempting to do something no candidate has done before: win a presidential election by subtraction not addition. It is, of course, an upside down, nonsensical campaign strategy, led by the mad Hatter candidate himself,that only Lewis Carroll could love. His strategy is to attack, offend, bully, anger and insult as many minority voting blocs as he can. This includes large numbers of mainstream voters, i.e., women, offended by Trump's habit of using schoolyard names against them (like "fat pig"). Driving voters into the open arms of Queen Hillary herself. He began by defining...
  • Obamacare's side effects: Fewer uninsured, better health (AMA study)

    Obamacare improved key health-care measurements for millions of Americans, reversing a troubling trend, a new study strongly suggests. The study found marked gains in the number of people with insurance—as other research has repeatedly confirmed—as well as improved access to doctors and medications, affordable health care and good health status after implementation of the Affordable Care Act. But the research published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association also noted that the the gains in health coverage and access to care for low-income adults were particularly striking in states that expanded their Medicaid programs under the ACA to include more poor...

    Yes, some doctors do make good money and they should. But the erroneous idea that all doctors are rich is simply untrue. As the middle class in this country becomes extinct, great resentment is being misdirected at people who have dedicated themselves to years of education and lifetimes of work. Apparently it’s just fine for the insurance companies to skirt anti-trust laws. Maybe it’s time for doctors to organize and unionize so they can fight the government and the insurance mafia and claw back the dignity and compensation they have sweated to earn. Good doctors have paid the price. We...

    Why Do We Blindly Dance to the Same Old Music? Continuing our examination of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JC), you’ll find the story is very complex. But, in the end, if one follows the money, the real WHY behind the JC is quite simply GREED. The JC is one of the main spiders, unseen by most, who continue to spin this deadly web at our expense. They have powerful partners with executives who enjoy virtual immunity from one of the greatest protection rackets of all time. It turns out that my suspicion of the JC is...
