    The plane landed safely at San Jose Mineta International Airport, about 50 miles south of San Francisco. The airline says the passenger accused of smoking was turned over to law enforcement. The remaining 32 passengers were placed on other aircraft to continue their trips. Passengers reported smelling smoke, and one said he smelled marijuana. “It looked like that someone needed to smoke a joint on a plane, and he went into the bathroom, smoked his blunt, and set off the fire alarm,” passenger Jonathan Burkes said.

    Rock legend Roger Daltrey has questioned the effectiveness of the NHS claiming it encourages people to lead unhealthy lives because they know they will get free treatment. The Who frontman, who at 69 is still a picture of good health, said offering state-run free healthcare meant people did not bother looking after themselves. He said: “We have this free NHS, which makes us take our health for granted and means we don’t take responsibility for looking after ourselves. “Most illnesses people suffer from are because of their lifestyles.” His comments came just days after Labour peer Lord Warner’s dire warning
  • 'Public Option' As Unhealthy As Medicare[Last year Mayo Clinic Lost $840 million In Medicare Work]

    The Anchorage Daily News ^ | September 1st, 2009 | By JEFFREY W. DAVIS
    The only way a "public plan" can achieve its stated goals is to pay doctors and hospitals less than what private health plans pay for the same services. Doctors and hospitals in Alaska already lose money on Medicare, and make up for their losses on current government programs by charging everyone with private health care coverage more for the same services. Current proposals for a "public plan" would place unsustainable financial pressure on doctors and hospitals. Some of the proposals suggest paying providers rates close to that which Medicare currently uses to underpay health care providers. Others suggest "negotiated" payments,...

    Unhealthy ProgramPublished Fri, Jul 24, 2009 HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how's everybody? President Obama hosted his fourth primetime press conference in six months Wednesday as he continued to try to rush health care through Congress. The strain is beginning to show. When Susan Boyle got this kind of exposure she cracked like an egg. Pakistan passed a law Tuesday jailing anyone who tells a joke about Pakistan's leader. It's a first. President Obama likes the idea so much he's demanding that Democrats attach it to the health care bill before they leave on their August recess. Italy's prime...
  • Axelrod Suggests Tea Party Movement Unhealthy

    WASHINGTON (CNN) – Senior White House adviser David Axelrod on Sunday suggested the "Tea Party" movement is an "unhealthy" reaction to the tough economic climate facing the country. Axelrod was asked on CBS's "Face the Nation" about the "spreading and very public disaffection" with the president's fiscal policies seen at the "Tea Party" rallies around the country last week. "I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that's unhealthy," Axelrod said. Axelrod appeared to backtrack when pressed on whether the movement is unhealthy. "Well, this is a...

    Axelrod thinks that the Tea Parties are misdirecting their anger. His arguments are so weak that he's got to be making this stuff up - a bit like Biden does. First of all, he is still desperately clinging to the delusional lie that 95% of Americans got tax cuts. 95% of Americans got no such thing! They may be getting a lower standard withholding, but in the long run they're paying more taxes. All Americans are. There's no way that the "richest" 5% of Americans will be able to foot the bill for this huge spending spree that the government...

He called it an "eerie reminder" of the first stories about AIDS.

    Call to put whites back in charge of 'unhealthy' Aborigines By Mark Chipperfield in Sydney (Filed: 22/06/2006) A senior minister yesterday recommended installing white administrators in some of Australia's more troubled Aboriginal communities, re-igniting argument about a problem that has divided the country for decades. Tony Abbott, the health minister, said the 500,000-strong indigenous population was falling so far behind the mainstream community that only a return to the "paternalistic" government policies of the 1950s would save them. "Paternalism based on competence rather than race is unavoidable if these places are to be well run," he said. Mr Abbott's speech...

    WASHINGTON – Millions of Hispanics come to America looking for jobs and educations, but remaining here seems to be bad for their health. The longer Hispanics are here, the more likely they are to become obese, to develop diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. And Hispanics born here have even higher rates of those illnesses, a new government report shows. The analysis of immigrants' health by the federal Centers for Disease Control comes on the heels of a report calling for more educational programs for Hispanics, who are expected to increase to nearly one-fourth of the country's population in...

    SINKING David Frum Survey USA poll today indicates that 44% of self-described conservatives have a "favorable" impression of Harriet Miers as opposed to only 12% who have an "unfavorable" impression. (45% don't have an opinion.) Good news for the White House? Not exactly. Two weeks ago, CNN/Gallup's poll showed 58% of self-identified conservatives describing the Miers nomination as "excellent" or "good." (29% thought it "fair" or "poor.") The CNN/Gallup poll already showed Miers 20 points less popular among conservatives than John Roberts had been. The CNN and Survey USA polls are not exactly comparable of course. But taken together, the...
