    “About an hour after the shootings began, a SWAT officer killed the gunman, said Police spokesman John Cannon.”
    Good for the SWAT!

    Makes you wonder if you were a neighbor and had quick access to your AR-15 with a scope, if you would have been willing to try and stop the guy before an hour went by. Just hypothesizing here.

    This is the continued oppression we will see of moral people, who are willing to stand up to the government-supported PP progressives. It’s fascism 101.

    While I agree that porn is a significant problem, legislating morality doesn’t work. So drop it, senator, and instead, encourage those who realize they have an addiction to get into a recovery group!

    My wife thinks I’m addicted to news sites. (She may be right.)

    Trump’s statements to the NRA at least shows he is pandering to the 2nd amendment constitutionalists.
    Hillary will clearly limit our gun rights as much as she can by executive order.
    I don’t know what Trump will do.

    Of course the party will unite behind the nominee. They are both the same. Sanders is just an open socialist. Clinton is a closet socialist.

    Hey, give the Kiwi a break.
    I’m sure most of us look like monkeys from this guy’s vantage point.

    Vince Vaughn is conservative and usually pretty funny.

    Glad the pastor will survive.
    Makes you wonder if he had been armed if things would have turned out differently. From the report, it sounded like he didn’t have much of a chance.

    Wow! The Irish understand religious freedom better than us. Who would have guessed that. Good for them.

    Maybe Cruz should “unsuspend” his campaign and see what happens.

    This story was already put out on The Blaze.

    It’s interesting that this article was published in the British Medical Journal. There is no scientific research about this and the authors of this paper are spouting estimates that have nothing to do with reality.

    Medical errors are a significant issue, no doubt. An ICD-10 code for “death from a medical error” would be nice. I can guarantee there will not be 250,000 deaths per year using that code. But this publication does no good since it hasn’t really gathered any accurate data from the hospitals. For example, the big push 15 years ago and continues today was to reduce wrong-site surgery. Systems were put into place in hospitals requiring surgeons to go through training as well as “time-out” procedures at the beginning of surgical cases. Despite this, there has been no reduction in wrong-site surgeries because of human error, (based on claims made to malpractice carriers.) Sorry to admit it, but it’s true. We are still trying with improved processes to prevent it.

    Read the article for yourself. http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2139

    If the article was actually worthwhile and accurate, it would have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, or the Journal of the American Medical Association (Both of which are just barely higher quality than the British Medical Journal.)

    For those of you out there who are wondering about your medical care, get a second opinion. Most insurances will cover this.

    False comparison.
    If a pilot had to fly a 60 year old aircraft every day, one that had not been maintained; and even if he wanted not to fly it, then be required to fly it or he might be sued, then how many crashes a day would you see?

    You’re exactly right, Argyle.
    I know of many, including myself, who will retire early because of the increasing regulations and costs of the (Un)Affordable Care Act.
    You can say it’s a myth all you want Maggie, but I’m in the thick of it and know what I’m talking about. You will see more and more foreign medical graduates here with increasing change in culture of how medicine is practiced. The brightest college students who used to go into medicine are now choosing dentistry or other professions rather than medicine.

    I’m sorry but an X and a Y chromosome, makes you male. An X and an X chromosome makes you a female. How you choose to live after that is up to you. XXY or XXXY are hermaphrodites and are rare enough that it shouldn’t be an issue (and these aren’t the people pushing this agenda.)

    Good questions, 1Free.

    I was just kidding about the exorbitant fees. Remember when Obama said I get paid 30K, or 40K for an amputation. He was lying or completely ignorant. An amputation below the knee is paid at 1200 dollars which includes the 3 months of aftercare.
    I am an experienced surgeon. All my debts are paid, including my home. Most of my training and service was in the Army as a surgeon.
    I’ve saved for retirement and not overspent or indebted myself for toys I don’t need. I have relatively inexpensive disability insurance.
    As far as training goes, I constantly learn new techniques as technology becomes available. For example, I recently trained on and started using a small robot for some parts of procedures on the spine. (Mazor Robotics.)
    Health care is going to become more and more difficult for both providers and patients. Best to you.

    That gives new meaning to “hacking” your credit card accounts.

    A criminal might just hack off your finger to get to your personal information.

    No thanks. As a surgeon, I wouldn’t let someone cut into me like that. However, if you want me to do it, I will charge you an exorbitant fee to do it in a sterile environment. Haha.

    These discoveries of new particles are, in actuality, very important. They are turning the Big Bang theory on its head. This is because these quantum particles are disproving some of the premises of an expanding universe. Quantum physics implies that the universe has always existed.

    A disgusting display of decadence, degeneracy, and uncouthness.

    I am a surgeon and a musician. This “artist” is a kook.
