Every once in a while, an opportunistic patient will try to bring a bogus case, and that's hell for a doctor to go through, with their whole livelihood on the line. Anything that diminishes the incentive for people to pull stuff like that probably has some appeal to those in the profession. They can still hate the insurance companies too, as many doctors do, but you take what you can get.

I understand doctors' anger over what they consider lawsuits that try to capitalize on bad luck, but BushCo's tort reform ideas have been proven not to lower insurance costs and his unabashed collusion with the industry to exploit doctors and patients is hardly a secret. I don't get why they can't connect the dots and stay hung up on their anger.

Zinn


  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton


  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
