Is your doctor accessible to you via email? Texting?  Twitter? Facebook?  Skype? Increasingly, the answer may be yes.  Historically, health care professionals have shied away from technology due to the threat to patients’ privacy and their own liability.  But a new breed of doctors are relying on technology such as texts, emails, blog messages, Skype sessions,...

Kennedy School of Government and former Secretary...

More at Video Cafe” Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn) thinks health care is something for the rich, calling it a “privilege” on MSNCB. I can’t figure out what’s worse, the comment or the fact that he was serious about it. Is this the kind of person Tennessians want representing them when they need access to health care?

Did Governor Palin’s performance change the outcome of the election? Almost certainly not, though she probably did succeed in getting the attention back on Senator McCain. Her answers were obviously much less spontaneous, and accordingly less substantive, less revealing, and generally less related to the questions Gwen Ifill posed. In fact, the debate may have been overshadowed by the revelation that the McCain campaign has written off Michigan, and will even continue running ads there. Both candidates foreshadowed their strengths...

Caroline Kennedy took the stage at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado on the evening of 25 August 2008 to remind those assembled for the Democratic Nominating Convention that the same values that define the Kennedy family resonate in Barack Obama’s family, too: Justice, fairness, service and sacrifice, faith, and family. She stressed that we are all in this together, that we all have something to give. She repeated what some have heard her say before in the context of the campaign, “I’ve never had someone inspire me...

Sandy Allen, the World’s Tallest Woman at 7’7 inches, passed away Thursday at 53 years of age and after a decline in her health that started in January and due to kidney and blood infections. http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifI always wonder what people like Sandy go through, and also having been a bit of an outcast myself in my youth, everytime I read or hear about a story like this, I am saddened and because of the way we treat people who may not be like whatever the “norm” is. There’s really no such...

I’d never considered that poll dancing started to pick up in China! Wow. China! Well, check this out: It’s not an easy thing to do there as it goes against the “code” for women there. “To show off in this way,” someone said in the movie,” is to make people jealous.” Yep.

Clinton Lies And Mistruths Are Nasty Pattern: Health Care and NC Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, just two weeks from a nasty storm of criticism on the heels of the disclosure that she lied about a trip to Bosnia she made as First Lady, faces a brand new problem of truth regarding an area that was her strength, health care. Then, just today as well, it was disclosed that Clinton is telling lies about Senator Obama’s committment to North Carolina. The Clinton Lies just keep coming. According to the New York Times, Senator Clinton...

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial staff took a good look at both Senator Obama’s health plan and Senator Clinton’s, and liked Obama’s for the same reason I do: an efort to reduce costs and without using penalties like calling for wage garnishment. Look, I don’t care what anyone says, that threat in the Clinton plan is a deal-killer. Share this:StumbleUponLinkedInRedditTumblrPocketDiggTwitterFacebookGooglePinterestEmailPrint...

Yep. You saw the headline. I’m not going to waste a lot of space on some racist idiot who thinks he can judge who’s smart and who’s not based on his own racism and his ego and arrogance that led him to the “unravelling of DNA.” This nut job says that Africans are less intelligent than Westerners. Now think about it. If Watson — who’s “Western” — found that Westerners were less intelligent, would he report it? Hell no. Not at all. Because it would mean he’s less...

Senator Hillary Clinton came to the Yearly Kos convention to be around some friends — including the Daily Kos which has taken $5,000 in weekly ad revenues from her — and annouced controversially that she takes money from lobbyists, saying they represent “real Americans.” Wow. Tell that to the millions of Americans who can’t afford health care because of the health care lobby that gives money to Senator Clinton. How is she supposed to reform the American health care system with this track record? Fortunately,...

Filmmaker Michael Moore’s new movie “Sicko” has received a lot of attention, and some of it because of his assertion that Senator Hillary Clinton receives more monetary support from the Health Care industry. That comment is captured in this video taken from the Hollywood Business show “Sunday Morning Shootout” hosted by Peter Guber and Peter Bart.

I’m watching the “New Leadership Health Care 2008 Presidential Forum” in Las Vegas. Senator Obama just made his presentation and did very well. Now Senator Clinton is speaking and it’s obvious that this is where her heart is. But the matter of how we should pay for a new health care system has not been adressed in a way that avoids taxes or at least is less likely to cause an increase in taxes. I have a suggestion for Senator Obama, because he opposes the War In Iraq. Because Senator Clinton does support the...

Some economists are attacking Governor Schwarzenegger’s plan for a kind of universal health care coverage. But I give him credit for trying something that many have talked about but never actually attempted. It’s a very democratic proposal. But more to the point, it does work to solve a real problem and that is the lack of health care coverage in the state of California. Let’s do it and see how we can make it better.
