    I watched it. Connecticut would not need to collect taxes if their politicians and bureaucrats were in the ring with that ram. People would line up to pay to see it.

    University of Beirut.

    This connects Obama’s second in command Valarie Jarret, who grew up in Beirut and whose father was a leftist journalist there?

    Ok. Somebody has to say it and it might as well be me.

    Any city with a team called the “Yard Goats” is three inches away from third world status.

    “Yard Goats” has to be the most embarrassing team name ever. It sounds like an sub-Saharan African high school team.

    Doesn’t any one in Hartford have the manhood to give their teams decent names?

    Like Crusaders?

    Warriors?

    They could have even picked the State Bird and became the “Robins” which would have had more testosterone than “Yard Goats.”

  • EHRs do not lower administrative billing costs, study finds

    Billing of course. Providers have to bill under increasingly complex and discrete codes.

    I notice my pcp group’s EMR permits them to churn accounts constantly for me and their other patients to come in for “covered services” and regularly scheduled screenings.

    Any other ideas, Jim Noble.

    I notice we are in the same Freeper class, 98.

    they have been able to do this for a long time.

    The Human Rights Commissions in each state is actually a tribunal to punish non leftist thought and behavior and to promote leftist anti-American activities.

    These are the people who ruin the lives of conservatives.

    Most mentally ill are canaries in the culture. Their emotional boundaries are more permeable than the average person and they take in more and more of the culture and react to it as they are told to do by the media.

    I call them the Cultural Canaries.

    The leftist media has been advocating violence for a long time through video and presentation.

    As for medications being the cause of the violence, well, of course most of the people who commit mass murder have been or are on or just came off of psychiatric drugs.

    For most of them have been unstable for a long period of time and have been treated, for their mental instability. Mental illness and the kind of instability that causes mass murders of this nature just doesn’t pop up. These are people who have been mentally deteriorating for a long time. And they have been treated with the appropriate medications to manage their symptoms.

    Whether they complied with follow up treatment, or took their medications, or not, is about judgment, which is something most mentally ill people do not have. As a matter of fact, lack of judgment is a symptom in most mental illnesses.

    So to start talking about how these people were on different antidepressants, benzos, mood stabilizers, and antipsychotics and point fingers at the medications, is ridiculous.

    It is the mental illness, not the medication or the gun that is at issue.

    You would be better served to criticize a broken mental health system which is so hampered by HIPPA and Patient Rights that it is unable to prevent all but the most IMMEDIATE dangerous patients (and they have to prove it to the courts) from leaving the building.

    You are all right, we did not have this sort of thing years ago and a good portion of what is going on is thus: people do what they are told, think what they are told, and the mentally ill have less filters from the common culture than others. They reflect the culture.

    Therefore the violence our culture censored years ago, that many people either avoid or can filter, goes straight to the minds of the mentally ill and influences them greatly.

    Censorship in the past was not there to keep you in the dark but instead was in place to protect the weak, including the weak-minded....and thus...the society as a whole.

    We have eliminated hospital beds from our healthcare system in general and have closed down long term facilities for the mentally ill and developmentally retarded. We have shut down facilities that used to school and board troubled and mentally ill children and adolescents, and have opened programs that handle much less, and that require a much higher bar to enter, than before.

    We have given adolescents patient rights, and have moved parents and guardians to the sidelines in decision-making for their care. I have seen frustrated and end of rope patents kill their mentally ill children and then suicide because the options of homes and locked facilities are not longer present.

    No this is not an issue of pharma or guns, this is an issue of what we have become as a culture.

    We had individuals in the old system who were abused in the large institutions. I submit that between homelessness, lack of treatment, people who predate on the mentally ill and retarded, and the damages and injuries caused by the mentally ill and mentally retarded, there is far more abuse and crime today that there ever was in post-war institutions in the US.

    The large institutions of old, were places developed in compassion. In older times, families locked their mentally ill in attics, or starved and killed them. Towns fathers would quietly capture and kill dangerous mentally ill. We chose to give them a home and three hots and a cot. That is gone. We refuse to take care of these people and we are letting them die, and we are letting them kill. I suspect the larger issue is to control the culture, and remove guns.

    Don’t blame pharma, blame your local leftist lawyer and politician for eliminating effective mental health care.

    I see early onset dementia in alcoholics. Starts in their fifties. Used to be called Wet-Brain.

    Years of damaging brain with large and consistent amounts of alcohol leads to significant brain damage.

    What will happen?

    Leftists will do what they do best,
    they will gather up and kill the helpless and the homeless. They will also turn some of them into soldiers in their killing armies.
