If it is uncomfortable to button the top button of your shirt, I would suggest that either you are tying your tie too tight, or your shirt does not fit properly. It is not the button's fault if you choose to cram yourself into a shirt that is two sizes too small.
Meh. It wasn't forced on anyone. The test subjects agreed to it. Granted, the risks should probably have been bettet explained, but on the other hand, what person in their right mind would actually trust the American government to experiment on them?
Penned, most doctors wouldn't know what to do with a scope if they had one. The situation you describe is simply a matter of a doctor ordering the wrong test in an effort to save money. Most bacterial cultures will report out any and all pathogens that are found. It is only when a doctor says to screen for a particular bug that we only look for that particular bug, for example, an MRSA screen. Scopes are surprisingly limited in their usefuleness. In the case of bacteria, a scope can take one of millions of different kinds of bacteria and put it into one of four basic categories. It will not tell you what the bacteria is, what treatments are effective against it, or if it is even something to be concerned about.
Agreed. Why would anyone WANT to see that? It takes a sick person to eagerly await the next beheading video starring their own brother/sister. I've seen beheading videos before, and I wish I could unsee them.
I agree with Unprofitable Servant. Some folks may feel they are being denied their right to healthcare, but the constitution nowhere mentions it as a right. Pre-Obama healthcare may have had its flaws, but Obamacare in its current manifestation appears to have turned a mess into a nightmare.
