  • Canada’s palliative care so bad that patients may opt for euthanasia, experts warn

    RFEngineer to wagglebee

    Canada kills old people. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. They don’t have death panels, per se, they simply deny and delay care until they get the desired outcome.

    They are barbarians. I know this will come as a surprise to many Canadians, who generally are proud of their Healthcare system. I tell them “wait until you get old”

    It may vary here and there by province, but the truth is there for Canadians to deny. It’s still the truth. I know this to be true, unfortunately.

    It will seem like the end of the world to many who are accustomed to receiving checks, in whatever form, from the government.

    As for Social Security/Medicare - communities around the country should be figuring out how to house, care for, and provide medical care to the elderly in their community.

    If they don’t, a lot of these people will die, because the federal government is broke - they just haven’t admitted it yet.

    “The minute it was stolen is when it stopped being our money.”

    Actually, the minute you paid it, it stopped being “your” money.

    The money you are counting on to be paid to you is someone elses labor and effort - but it’s a lot bigger chunk of that labor and effort than you ever paid.

    I know you “want” it. I get that. It’s just not yours - it belongs to someone else, and you are counting on the government to take it from them and give it to you.

    The problem is, that they, and everyone else are taking so much that there aren’t enough “other people” to take from and pay all the “promises” people think government owes them.

    What you fail to understand is that it’s NOT your money. Once the government taxed you, under whatever pretext they stated, it ceased to be your money.

    Any money you get is predicated on somebody else being willing to work and pay along with the governments willingness to borrow/print (on the argument that someone in the future will be willing to work/pay)

    “I paid into the SS fund for over 40 years. Since I was self employed I paid the employers part as well. SS is not a handout. It is an entitlement. I am entitled to the money because I PAID for it. I will only get back a fraction of what they stole from me.”

    And this is where efforts to reign in government stops. “they OWE me, it’s MY money” is always the refrain, followed by “look at THEIR check - cut their check before looking at mine”.

    We will never be able to politically reform the growth of government. It has to go broke, and the checks simply have to stop - either literally or through runaway inflation.

    “These companies are not doing it for personal and political gain. They are not using Vets as political pawns. There is a difference but you are too damned stupid to understand.”

    I may be an idiot, but so are you.

    Ok, so what kind of pawns are these companies using the Vets for in the link I sent, then? Or are you dumb enough to think that they did this without any expectation of getting credit, for their donations?

    It’s a two way street. A charity has to show itself worthy, so a donor can get something out of it too.

    That’s the way it works.

    You are just pissed that Trump tried to give this worthy charity money because you hate Trump. You think that if he was pure of heart he would do it anonymously.

    I have news for you: Nobody is pure of heart. Charity gets and the donors get something out of it too.

    The charity leader would gladly (I suspect) have accepted money from Bernie Sanders, perhaps even Hillary. He’s just a lefty, and he despises Trump because he is a successful man. Envy is not a good reason to reject a 100k check for a shoe-string charity.

    Envy is not a good reason for you to agree with him.

    This is an interesting article, with more companies that wish to use “vets as props”:

    “The students raised $20,000 to fund the project, receiving donations from individuals and businesses including Bruce Merges Control Technologies Inc. of Manchester, Damon Insulation of Bow, Design Day Mechanicals of New Ipswich, F.W. Webb of Manchester, Granite State Automation of Manchester, Granite State Plumbing & Heating LLC of Weare, Home Depot, Louis P. Cote Inc. of Goffstown, Lowes of Bedford and Pensotti Boilers of Brewer, Maine.

    Food donations were provided by Hannaford’s Bicentennial Drive store in Hooksett, KC’s Rib Shack of Manchester, Nadeau’s Subs of Manchester, the Puritan Backroom of Manchester, Shorty’s Mexican Roadhouse of Hooksett and the Sal’s Pizza on South Willow Street in Manchester.

    MCC has partnered with Liberty House since 2012, recently winning the President’s Community Partner Award from Campus Compact for NH.”

    All these companies should be excoriated for refusing to make “anonymous donations” and cynically using vets for “tax deductions”.

    “Yep, he mis fired and mis spoke and never answered the question on CONSERVATIVE. Never said anything about the 2nd Amendment rights, or Children in the womb the Right to live, or never said anything about limiting powers of Federal Gov’t or appointing judges who would deflect MORE power, and hand it back to the individual states.”

    Because we “conservatives” know that it’s just campaign words that matter. The actual actions of our elected representatives (who claim to be “conservative”) - have been very poor at protecting the “conservative” elements that you laid out.

    So if you are going to beat Trump with that stick (and I have no problem with you doing so) you might also want to beat the elected representatives, some of whom are running for President with it too.

    “This attraction with Trump is exactly like the original attraction, the Democrats and many independents, had with Obama. He talks in generalities and is vociferous on a few populist issues (conservative issues in Trump’s case). People project their own beliefs on him as if he’s is saying exactly what they believe even though he is not.”

    No. You’re claiming a false moral high ground, as if your politician is going to somehow be different from all the other politicians that came before him.

    There is at least a reasonable expectation that Trump will actually do what he says on immigration. That’s the only issue I care about. I’m sure others believe he’ll do what he says on other issues. That’s the foundation of his support. Sure, there are “generalities”, all politicians have them, and then lie about them after they get elected.

    Do I think Trump could be just like whomever you support - that is “say one thing, do another and then lie about it” - sure he could be just like your candidate - who will follow the tried-and-true template for getting elected.

    Trump is not following the template so far, so I believe (whether rightly or wrongly) that he will do substantially what he says he will do on immigration. I think that’s a similar basis for other supporters of Trump.

    He could be just like every other politician, true. We at least have reason to believe he won’t be.

    There is no other politician on the Republican slate that gives anyone any reason to believe they aren’t “more of the same”.

    “he is absolutely no conservative and would probably be a complete disaster when it comes to SC appointments.”

    You have no basis for this judgment to be credible. You have no idea if he would be better or worse than any other GOP candidate or president from the past.

    If we put Exxon-Mobil in charge of peace in the Middle East, and allowed them to keep the profits from oil revenues - we’d have peace in the Middle East. It wouldn’t take 10 years.

    You might not like how they did it, but we’d have peace.

    It would require eliminating government checks, benefits, and controls.

    “No it isn’t. Post 58, when actually read from a NON-alarmist point of view, shows clearly that EMP is not that strong. It had a fraction of the range the alarmist predict, and a fraction of the damage. The evidence overwhelmingly shows the alarmists are liars.”

    Friend, if you read the document in Post 58, it actually validates what I’ve been telling you. It adds the dimension of an EMP from a SURFACE blast - something you’ve obviously misunderstood to apply to a high-altitude. The Marines paper validates the threat, if you understand what he wrote. I am not an alarmist.

    My position is we need to understand what an EMP will do to infrastructure - it will not be zero, and won’t be total - it will be in between.

    The strength of an EMP is known, because it has been measured. It is significant and considered “strong” if we want to use your subjective term.

    Read Longmire:
    Longmire Theoretical Notes # 353 “EMP on Honolulu from the Starfish Event” (March 1985)

    “We see that the amplitude of the EMP incident on Honolulu from the Starfish event was considerably smaller than what could be produced over the northern U.S. by more intense gamma fluxes. Therefore, one cannot conclude from what electrical and electronic damage did NOT occur in Honolulu that high-altitude EMP is not a serious threat.”

    Longmire is “the man” on this effect. He figured it out analytically and then measured it in reality.

    Friend, I’m simply sharing facts where you are in error. I’m not arguing with you. The ionosphere has no impact on an EMP - the EMP is generated well below the ionosphere. A nuclear blast at high-altitude has a profound effect on the ionosphere though - but it has nothing to do with an EMP.

    “The high altitude kill America EMP threat is pure lying fear mongering fantasy fiction BS. Period.”

    It is not “pure lying fear mongering”. There are a lot of unknowns - and the impact of an EMP on modern infrastructure and electronics is unknown. I do not comment on “casualty” guesses - I’m simply stating facts and highlighting gaps in present understanding.

    “We know how electronic waves fade over distance, we know how the atmosphere chews them up, and we know about the EMP strength of various sized bombs.”

    An EMP does not decay like a point source. It is “near field” and therefore does not follow “inverse square” physics.

    The EMP strength is fairly constant from a 1kT detonation to a 100kT detonation. There is very little difference in EMP field generated (not anywhere close to the 2 orders of magnitude of yield).

    “We know enough to have never dedicated a serious chunk of our arsenal to be used that way, given that there was a time when we were seriously looking for ways to kill the people and leave the buildings if EMP was that cool we’d have put it in our plans.”

    Those details would be classified. That’s why you wouldn’t know about them.

    “You’re not getting any EMP damage 2000 miles (remember, it’s got to run the hypotenuse of the triangle) from the blast.”

    No, that’s not how it works. The EMP is caused by gamma rays interacting with the atmosphere 10-30km above the earths surface. The gamma rays are energetic enough to travel a long distance until they reach the atmosphere of sufficient density (low angle case).

    What you end up with is a large area of the atmosphere acting as a large transmitter thousands of miles across. EMP energy comes from all around (not a specific direction) and reaches levels around 50,000V/m, whereas a cell phone may reach 1 or 2 V/m in most cases.

    “Man alive, you go after Vander Plaats for the minor nits “

    At least you and I can see that what Vander Plaats did was ethically incorrect. We’re on the same side. The only one who can’t seem to see it is Vander Plaats himself!

    “So, you’re saying he sold his relationship with God for luxury accommodations? Are you kidding? Have you ever heard of forgiveness?”

    Hey, Vander Plaats doesn’t need my forgiveness. He needs the forgiveness of the folks he leads. He doesn’t seem to think he did anything wrong, and thinks he can just pay for the rooms after getting caught.

    His credibility is shot. It’s takes some folks longer to figure it out for themselves. You’ll get there. When is the last time you took your family for a luxury hotel stay?

    “Vander Plaats has said he said he would pay for his accommodation”

    He sold his virtue and has been exposed. He can’t get it back by belatedly by paying for belatedly once caught that which he owed upfront.

    He sold his relationship with God for lux accomodations. You think he can simply buy it back?

    Vander Plaats deserves your scorn, not your lame excuses. How else will he learn?

    “Trump’s the who said he’s a great Christian”

    I’d say that Vander Plaats and Trump both have flaws that they ought to clean up. But don’t hold Vander Plaats up as a paragon of virtue. His virtue seems to be up for trade, as he has admitted himself.

    “I am a business owner and I get calls from non-profits ALL the time asking for discounts and/or deals.

    This is very normal.”

    So Vander Plaats is shaking you down, too?

    “I bet Vander Plaats regrets ever meeting/talking to Trump.” that he’s been exposed accepting free luxury accommodations, yes. But if it is wrong now, it was wrong then.

    You are giving the ol boy a pass and ought not do so
