Re: What should we aim for with medicine?

Wow, BearBones .... you said it much clearer and better than my attempt.  Thank you and my very best wishes. ... Mountaineer No it would not. No offense, but I don't want God in my medicine, thank you very much. Ideally, it would not even be a part of this conversation. I don't think that was the po...

Re: What should we aim for with medicine?

I believe the goal of "medicine" should be to improve ones physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as measured by the individual desiring the improvement.  If each of us continually grow in those four dimensions, the process will be self-correcting.  Ideally, the deliverers of that "med...

Re: What's wrong with this picture....

I am a Christian and my hope is that all will hear the Good News and be saved. Re: What is wrong with this picture..... My beliefs:  ALL of us are sinners from conception forward and inherently rebel against God.  Thus, why should it surprise anyone that some "good" people do bad things, and some "b...

Re: VP debate

My take: Biden - rude, disrespectful, fake smiles, fake smirks, apparent intent to pull "facts" from his behind and sound smart, seemed extremely unprofessional - most Little League coaches display better leadership qualities.  I am mystified how Biden can say that his personal faith believes life b...

Re: Bring On The Debates

Does anyone remember how hilarious it was when the media extensively analyzed the bulge in GWBs suit during the debates several years ago?  Was he receiving voice answers remotely via radio?  Is he a secret diabetic hiding his insulin pump?  Are the aliens controlling his thoughts electronically?  ...

Re: US Plummets In Economic Freedom

Sort of on topic re. our "mess". This is a non-partisan video produced by an accountant, Hal Mason, retired after 27 years with IBM. He looks at the budget, its revenues and expenses, and very simply illustrates the problem. Amazingly, we get all the media talking heads blathering and shouting for h...

Re: Who Would Be Better For The PP- Obama or Romney?

How about: Leaving all physical, mental, and emotional aspects aside, which of these two women would make the better mother, lover, provider, and companion?  Which woman would be more likely to insure future positive prospects for our household?  Which woman would be more likely to keep a dog rather...
