Socialized Medicine, It's Closer Than You Think

Nearly 20 years ago, my father, Dr. Porter E. Barbera, MD, told me that socialized medicine would be coming to the United States and he was right. 

He said that his practice was during what he termed “the golden age of medicine.” He also…

Pat Robertson is Divorced From Reality

 



When you’re talking about the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) a good defense is apparently a good offense – and no one is more offensive than…

Health Update

Some of you know that I was in the hospital last week with chest pains. Fortunately, all the tests were negative. Tomorrow morning I will be wired up and and forced to run on a treadmill until:


a) I reached the desired sustained heart rate for the desired amount of time


b) I have a heart attack


c) I stumble, fall and break my nose on the hand rail.
(I'm hoping for "a" but "c" is a distinct possibility. I'm…

Hellfire and Buggery Part II: Crazy goes to Crazytown!!

Immediately following on from my last blog, about how I'd posted a video on Facebook about Homosexuality and Christianity, received one angry message from a Christian who promptly de-friended me (how shall I ever live with myself ? ? ? ) - someone began commenting on the video.



Turns out - as you'll see - he's something of a spiritual, new age kind with a penchant for CRAZY and lists, LOTS of lists… Continue

I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE LIBERAL PRESS AND THE PROGRESSIVES IN THIS COUNTRY



Ok so there are those against having health care for everyone in the United States.

They have it in England, Germany, France, Canada, and a whole list of others.

Of course, there are those who in those countries who do not like it. Then they just need to pay for their own coverage.



Funny thing is, having been in the insurance game the first thing you learn is that there will be someone who’ll call up and tell you they are tired of their employer’s health care plan. They… Continue

Will health care reform have a 'prayer'? Let's hope not.

Faith Healer Cat

Believers in faith healing could be exempted from mandates, and faith healers could be paid with federal funds, if health care reform provisions under consideration are adopted by Congress. A petition has been launched to ask… Continue

Can holy water cure the Swine Flu? Spolier Alert: No, but that won't stop some from selling it.



As can be demonstrated throughout history, religions do all they canto insert themselves into aspects of people's lives in which they have no business. "Good parents" bring their children to church; How many catholic hospitals are there around the U.S.?, How many religious schools?



There was a time when medical health and "spirituality" went hand in hand. Most 'hospitals,' which at that time were… Continue

When Tweeters and Callers Unite!

October 20th will go down in history. Or, maybe October 20th will be a trending topic on history's pages. Maybe October 20th will cease to exist, mysteriously combined with October 21st.



Digital multi-minimalists (aka Twitter users) all around the globe stumbled upon a phenomenon yesterday. They either found it to be monumentally self-affirming (as did I) or soul-shattering. What is the phenomenon, you ask? It was the temporarily trending topic, "No God." Blasphemy, they cried!… Continue

How the History of Credit Cards Matters to the Future of Health Care

How the History of Credit Cards Matters to the Future of Health Care

Interstate politics, federal regulation and oversight can teach us which direction we should go in, which we need to avoid and provides much needed wisdom to the discussion.…

Doctors Say Yes To The Public Option

On August 20th, a collection of doctors in Santa Rosa, California, assembled on a corner and lobbied the public to support the public health care option. EmpireReport.org reporter, John Stiffler, interviewed some of the doctors and created a video. What do you think?



Doctors Demonstrate for a Public Option in Health Care Reform!!! from Jon Stiffler on…

Open letter to the White House

Park Ranger in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, recently injured in an MVA and without health insurance, requests audience with a top dog.



Ok, me and 300 million other Americans. But with President Obama and friends being so much more people-friendly than those of the past, with him doing a tour of national parks and with health care being such the hot topic right now, I suppose I had to try, right?



Long story short: I am horribly poor, quasi-homeless and have been in… Continue

science says: abstinence-only education is a public health hazard

On his trip to Africa, Pope Benedict XVI declared that traditional Church teachings are the only failsafe way to prevent the spread of STIs. So I decided to take a look at what science has to say about it and found that not only is traditional abstinence-only education an abject failure (ex: 82% of virginity pledgers deny their pledge later and have just one less partner than non-pledgers), it's also dangerous to the public at large. (… Continue

Jogging

So in the interest of getting off of our fat butts and doing something positive to lose weight my wife and I are going to start jogging. Starting tomorrow. I know I know, all diets start "tomorrow", but really, it's too dark now to start today or we would have.

We're going to try some "Couch to 5K" program thingy that she found online. I don't know how long it will last, but here's hoping it will. We could both use it.

Anyway, wish us luck. Kick me if I complain too much. Ask me how… Continue

The Dark McDonald

Click to enlarge



I was inspired to create the "The Dark Mcdonald" after my wife called me and told me that our kids school teachers would be helping at Mcdonalds this evening to raise money for some cause. She wanted to take the kids there and get some food so the kids could see their teachers. I… Continue
