She was not getting the treatment she wanted or needed, took the matter in her own hands and is fine, Malpractice, really? how was she damaged? cause she actually had to think and make a decision about her own care. cmon, this sue first crap is getting really old.

So she has to have this pump so not save her life but keep her alive. I can say, if it were me, I would have two backups, and know how to change it out if it goes down. You want to file legal action on a busy ER because they did not move fast enough? when no one there knows what to do.She is alive, and is not damaged in any way. Want to know one of the reasons medical costs are so high, read your own post.
The problem there being that the insurance companies won't pay for a single backup and the things are horribly expensive.
I have an oxygen system at home - A pump that extracts oxygen from the room air, concentrates it and fills oxygen bottles, Two 1,500 psi bottles, which are good for about 8 hours if I'm just sitting around and two 3,000 psi bottles, which are good for about 16 hours under the same conditions. Any activity at all shortens the time the bottles last. I was issued four bottles, total. I asked for a couple of spares, because I live out in the sticks. VA, which claims to be financed under medicare, wouldn't pay for 'em. Offered to pay "out of pocket". No dice; "Verboten!". Found out one of the local Medical Supply store owners likes silver coins and worked-out my own deal. Asked the VA what I'm supposed to do if the pump quits working and they told me, "Get to the nearest Emergency Room".
In my case, that's not a big deal, since every ER, ambulance and clinic has oxygen. Hate to see what would happen if it was something exotic, like this gal's blood circulating pump.
Won"t do some people any good. Ever heard of an LVAD? (Left Ventricle Assist Device) It's a pump embedded in your body to help your heart move blood. My wife's father had one and was given about three sets of batteries (and charger) for the pump. Batteries had to be changed about every six hours and it was fine as long as the pump didn't fail. Just sayin'.

Most likely it is the building of the massive underground facility to house those who will be important enough to save after WW 3 starts. so just move along nothing to see here. and we thank you for your compliance.

This man has finally shown his hand. either he is with us in this fight or he is against us. his remarks over the last few weeks shows where he stands. so either he is standing with the enemy, or he is just out of his mind and insane. both facts proves he needs to be removed by an immediate vote. not in weeks from now, but right now. People, he is running this country. how he got there? well that is anyone’s guess. Congress do your job! park the moving vans and make it so.

when obama took office the national debt was 10.6 trillion. that is from all other administrations combined. he has added 8 trillion. One man has done just about what all other had done in the history of this country. and yet those with the power do nothing to stop him.

Once again, I work with two people that have had minimum income this year, and yet they have a federal tax return coming of 8000.00 and above. I have no problem with getting back all the federal tax if you make 35000.00 or less, but the EIC needs to stop. Giving money back that was never paid in or earned has just got to stop.
 February 10, 2015 at 3:19am
You are correct, but so did so many others (if, that is, you really believe that after the lies for three weeks about Benghazi, and how horrible he did his first four years, that he was actually elected, well thats a whole nother story) In any case, imagine if you will, that 8 years after Pearl Harbor, A man named Yakamota came out of nowhere and was elected President of the United States of America.Made every excuse for he could for Japan as to why the Americans were attacked. He made sure active prisoners were released and he told the world Getting attacked was America’s fault and we deserved it. That is what is happening here. Only difference was we won that war. Obama just stopped fighting his brothers. he gave our weapons to his brothers. He left all the equipment there for ISIS to take and use. He armed the same enemy we had been fighting for 10 years, to fight a leader in Syria.That supposedly crossed all four red lines obama gave him. This man is a failure for us and a hero to his Muslim Brothers. And yet those with the power to stop his madness, do nothing.
 January 31, 2015 at 8:05pm
I have been waiting for someone to actually say the truth. Thank you. ISIS was planned and obama armed them. it started with Benghazi. still waiting for the media to ask obama where are all those missiles that were taken from the embasy

So your first thought is legal action? for what? They were not harmed in any way, An idiot employee made a mistake, They got 2 years of service returned and two more years free. Companies make mistakes how they fix it is the key. Comcast did the right thing with this one. filing legal action for this is what is so wrong with this country.
 January 28, 2015 at 7:50pm
I could not agree more, The last time I watched good ol bill he was talking to obama and I thought he was trying to get a job interview with obama i had to turn it off. it was just sad to watch.
 January 23, 2015 at 2:24pm
So all the bad things that happen are because the cops are bad. has nothing to do with the criminals themselves. This man is nothing but a joke. still have no idea how he got where he is.
 January 17, 2015 at 2:28am
The only thing I would question in this story is the age of the winning team. I can remember playing against a few teams that had kids held back for two or three years. The losing coach needs to go to a coaching training class to learn how to teach the game of basketball. If the other team is taller, faster, he just has to teach how to overcome that with a mental game. to Complain about the other coach is foolish.

You really want to charge some one with Murder because they said she would not amount to anything? and they called her a few names. Good god can we say that teaching kids how to handle issues has gone out the window. I am sorry she felt she had to take her own life, but being bullied means you get exposed to physical abuse, you get trapped with no way out, Please teach your kids how to handle it when someone calls them a name.
I have a feeling there was a lot more to it than that. Knowing some bullies that was probably just what the friend felt comfortable repeating.
This is advice on how to handle bullies.
Well, scott, I will give you the benefit of thinking you mean well and it looks like a lot of folks here agree with you. But, your comments also come across a lot like the rape victim "asking for it" mentality. Murder may be a stretch here but it is time these jirks be held responsible for their actions beyond a little psycho mumbo jumbo and shedding a few "tears of regret".
(I should also add that it wasn’t exactly a cut-and-dried situation as her sister flew in and exacted significant retribution – which was humiliating for the bullies as they were boys.)
Hey Lock, you have just become part of the problem instead of being part of the solution. You might think you're bein a funny man but you're just another one of the many ignorant fools who make this world as messed up as it is. You do not, and I repeat, DO NOT fight bullying with violence except in self defense. This young ladies best defense would have been to prove her bullies wrong, simple as that.
That’s odd. My first post disappeared. Perhaps I played with the edit function a bit too much.
What I said was that I was in two minds, Scott.
On the one hand, my younger daughter was bullied recently and I told the school principal that I was pretty relaxed about it as I consider bullies to be a necessary evil. Children will encounter miscreants who enjoy causing distress in others throughout their lives, so they may as well learn to deal with it at an early age.
On the other hand, I don’t know how I would possibly handle it if this happened to one of my girls. I quail at the thought.
We have created/are creating generations of psychological cripples (people that can’t handle simple or complex problems in life) or sociopaths/psychopaths (people that have no concern or empathy or sympathy for others). When I was a kid, when someone died or was killed, we went to the viewing and funeral AT CHURCH of all places and cried and laughed with friends and families. Today, in so many cases, we bring in an army of psychologists and counselors for what? To get the kids to feel better about themselves!–not understand that we all have tragedies to face in life. And God forbid that we should bring reliance upon God into the picture as we did then.
The media is notorious for not telling the whole story.
There is nothing here in this story that is specifically saying there was no physical abuse.
Just because they conveniently left that part out, does not mean we can just assume that there wasn't any.
There in fact, might have been a hell of a lot of it.
And there is a huge difference by the way, between just getting called a name here and there once in awhile and having constant vile insults hurled at you on a constant basis, for years on end.
And here is another point, most people seem to be missing.
If a man verbally abuses his wife just about everyone agrees that he abused her and they do not excuse it just because he didn't actually hit her.
Well then, that means verbal abuse is a serious problem and not just some lighthearted name calling that can be laughed off and ignored.
instead of facing life some want government to step in and solve their problem. i have called for any one that has posts of bullying to let us see them and see if they are truly bullying. I suspect that most of this is liberal propaganda.
"instead of facing life some want government to step in and solve their problem. i have called for any one that has posts of bullying to let us see them and see if they are truly bullying. I suspect that most of this is liberal propaganda."
There are certain areas where Government is supposed to step in, such as in government controlled and administered schools where severe harassment and child abuse occurs.
Bullying is child abuse, and if you don't think the government should stop child abuse in government controlled schools, then they have no business trying to stop animal abuse either, but everyone is all for THAT.
Everything for the animals, and nothing ever for humans.
There is the typical liberal uncompassionate hypocrisy.

I how you are including Republicans. can we all say John McCain?
 December 18, 2014 at 1:31am
Really? Our government and my tax dollars are going after someone that hacked a movie production company? How long did it take to even admit that ISIS was a real threat? How many people were Beheaded before you sent one f-16? yet some embarrassing emails get taken and Now you will work tirelessly? Mr. obama you have turned this country into one big joke. and sadly you are laughing at the people you were Elected (i say that lightly) to serve right along with the enemies of the Once great, once Proud, and once Might United States of America.
 December 15, 2014 at 7:32pm
OK, This is a comparison/ so what I am reading that if some one is convicted for Murder, and the person they were supposed of killed shows up saying the entire thing was made up just to scare the person, and the person convicted, knowing he had committed no crime defended himself in an open and shut case, The person that was “killed” is standing in the courtroom saying I am alive, The judge would look at the defendant and say you did not pay for a transcript of the pretrial hearing. so you will i will sentence you for Murder. Is that what I read? what is the difference wrong is wrong. Taxes or Murder neither is true, yet they still convict because he did not pay for a transcript. THIS COUNTRY HAS LOST IT”S MIND!!!!!
December 13, 2014 at 10:25am
An incredible President? You have to be kidding right?. This country is in the worst shape I have ever seen in my 50 years of paying attention to what is going on. Your amazing president created the health care crisis, Employment, how can unemployment be at 6% when a third of able working Americans are either not working or now working part time.He lied to you to get that massive health care passed, He brokered an arms deal that went bad in Benghazi, and he let our guys fight to their deaths for 7 hours. IRS, Fast and Furious, All of this is the tip of the iceberg known as the obama presidency. Just one more note on the health care. I work with Medical offices, the patients that last year could go in and have treatment had a an average deductible of 2500.00 now it is 7500.00 to 10,000. Or if it is low, it is because I, as a tax paying American am paying for them, so don’t tell me how amazing this plan is. On the racial issue, I read that Sony is shutting down production. All those people now not working and no money just because some one said a black guy would like movies based on black culture. WOW stop the presses and everything else! This country has gone insane. People died, Business burned, all because a criminal attacked a cop and was killed. Obama did nothing to stop the violence, he said he understood them. I want to see People of all races stand in the streets and protest for the 5 year old that dies at the hand of a gang member not a criminal who attacked the cop.
November 26, 2014 at 5:04pm
My guess is, the 24 hour thing is the catch. if you still have any of the money left, you are either charged for the full amount and have to pay it back, or it is listed as income to you and you owe the taxes on it. amazing advertising campaign though. how many people are talking about this bank?
 November 25, 2014 at 11:04pm
So this Rapper is mad about a young man that attacks a cop and sadly dies, If it was a black cop that shot the young man would she joke about killing a Black guy in his sleep? I doubt it. Yet she says nothing when a three year old is shot by a black man to get back at the child’s father. Not one single word !!! How many kids are killed each day by young black men. Say something about that I dare you. You join Sharpton, and Jackson in race baiting. You are the problem, not the solution.

I really would like to know who paid for this study and was it a full 10 to 15 years from start to finish? I just do not believe that a grown person remembers much at all before 3 or 4 years old. We threw money at these people (If tax payers paid for this study), to see if babies remember some thing that just happened, or they remember being 1 and laughing at a funny animal when they are 10 years old. this is just foolish.
