    Default Rahm Emanuel

    This guy is really scarey. I don't remember seeing his name on the ballot.

    Obama is the marionette, and Rahm, the puppet master, is pulling the strings.

    Richard, I think you would be hard pressed to find any evidence at all to suggest that beyond the usual chorus of right wing lies. He's a rather well known bioethicist (and oncologist) who absolutely discusses the ethics of how decisions are made when making such horrible decisions as who will receive a vital organ transplant when there are more people in need than there are organs. Are such discussions inappropriate? How do you believe such decisions should be made? Should we leave it to Anne Coulter? She would simply auction to organ off. Or maybe she would lead the charge in suggesting the sacrifice of the unworthy to provide a source of organs for the chosen.

    Yes, the article that was referred to out of context was an academic discussion on end of life issues, full of hypotheticals and proof of concept examples. In no way was he endorsing or supporting any of those notions ascribed to him. Yet another blow to the credibility of the Pro-insurance company crowd.

    there ARE legitimate concerns to such a major overhaul. Why can't we stick to those issues? There are plenty, such as how it will be paid for. Instead, we launch personal attacks like that, based on lies and distortions. That's not how to discuss and reach agreements.

    This was the part that I found scary ... that he is pulling the strings on O. That O is just a talking head for Emanuel behind the scenes.

    I found it surprising that the article was in the NY Times with this kind of a slant.

    And his ethics, at the very least, are questionable!

    Unless, of course, you are drinking the secular progressive KOOL-AID!!

    Those decisions should be left to the individuals!!

    Nice "cheap shot" at Anne Coulter.
    To what point??

    Did you know Annes mother has cancer?
    Do you know who the primary care giver is??


    What has Anne Coulter and your guesses on what should might do have to do with this?

    I thought you told me all of your posts are researched, documented and well thought out??


    Right..........


    Now, type out about 5 paragraphs and a few charts....show us what a "BLOW HARD" is.
