Sick man dies after being turned away by 25 different hospitals

Sick man dies after being turned away by 25 different hospitals | Gov and law current events | Scoop.it
The paramedics called 25 hospitals but all said the same thing: We're too busy and too crowded to take another patient.
Ryan johnson's insight:

I can't even imagine how i feel about this little article.  Whether the hospitals were filled or not, this man deserved a room.  Usually at hospitals, they take their time trying to mooch every bit of money they can out of their patients, even if their patients are ok! so why should those patients (who are healthy enough to go home) get a room over a man who is about to die from his sickness?  I don't get it.  This is just a bad reflection on not only Japanese hospitals, but hospitals worldwide

I am shocked that out of the twenty five hospitals, no one had room for this man. I am also surprised that each hospital was full and the man ended up being rejected a total of thirty six times.

On a different note, I'm curious to know who's paying the bill for this ambulance. The poor guy died, he shouldn't be responsible for these people not getting their job done

Dr. Benjamin Carson On Gun Control: "It Depends On Where You Live"

Mediaite: Asked by Beck for his thoughts on the Second Amendment, Carson gave the popular pro-gun argument: “There’s a reason for the Second Amendment; people do have the right to have weapons.”

But when asked whether people should be allowed to own “semi-automatic weapons,” the doctor replied: “It depends on where you live.”

“I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it,” Carson elaborated.

However, if you live “out in the country somewhere by yourself” and want to own a semi-automatic weapon, he added, “I’ve no problem with that.”

This article is going through an interview where Dr. Carson explains his views.  He believes that it should be allowed to own guns! however, with the more dangerous guns, he believes it should depend on where you live.  I think that specific guns should be allowed for anyone, while some only special people should have.

What a shame....he may have ended any political future with this statement. Our Constitutional rights are unalienable rights that are not limited by government but should be protected by our government. The Constitution limits the powers of the government not the rights of the people.

Interesting take on it. This may be what the country needs. Don't give up the right for guns, just limit the location. Dr. Carson may be just another political analyst looking for attention, but his theory shows some promise. What he said about guns falling into the hands of crazy people is true; you're more likely to find them in cities. So why not limit rifles to the open country?

Limiting them to location will only limit law abiding citizens. Criminals will never comply with the law regardless of location.

Fiscal Cliff Didn’t Hold Back Business Spending

Fiscal Cliff Didn’t Hold Back Business Spending | Gov and law current events | Scoop.it
Corporate executives warned Washington late last year they were delaying investment plans amid rising uncertainty over the fiscal cliff, raising risks for the economy. Turns out they did nothing of the sort.

Ryan johnson's insight:

Leading up to the fiscal cliff, many executives warned the government they were going to delay spending and investments until the cliffs passed.  In this article, it explains how they did nothing like this, and actually increased this spending greatly.

I think it is really frustrating how the government is so indecisive. With the fiscal cliff, they kept pushing off a decision farther and farther until they reached an agreement in the final hours. I also think it is frustrating how they want to reduce spending, but end up spending more in the end.

In this news clip, they discuss the fate of their son's bully.  It's tough to know how to react to this situation because they are both minors!  The fight at school left him with a  fractured nose and concussion, but they are unsure if these injuries caused the siezures that lead to his death?  Until they find this out, they aren't sure how to try him.  It will be interesting to see where this leads

What are animals thinking?

What are animals thinking? | Gov and law current events | Scoop.it

Chimps, cats, parrots, dolphins, and dogs have surprisingly smart and emotionally rich minds.

Ryan johnson's insight:

This is a very interesting article.  It goes throiugh with evidence that animals do indeed think, followed by introducing evolution.  It later states that now we do know they think, but we want to know "what they think?"

I agree with Ryan. Knowing that rats have dreams, cows have accents, and parrots may be naming and talking to their children is kind of mind blowing. It's just a new perspective to see these animals with more human-like characteristics.
Jacob Boe's comment, March 5, 2013 6:32 PM
It just adds another level of perspective when it comes to putting yourself in someone elses shoes or hooves or whatever! Maybe an animal abuser could see this and look at how the animal feels or thinks before he attacks!

Guns and the US Constitution after Newtown

Guns and the US Constitution after Newtown | Gov and law current events | Scoop.it

The horrific Newtown school massacre has again raised the question of why effective gun control is beyond the capacity of American politicians. The question is necessary, natural and appropriate. But it also misreads the constitutional character of American politics which, for both good and ill, remain far more ideological than those of all other liberal democracies.

I found this article to be very..interesting.  They went back and related gin control laws to abortion laws in a debate like style.

I feel like it's not all a gun control issue. I believe that people should have the right to bear arms but to a certain extent. Automatic weapons aren't necessary in your household no matter what. If you need that much firepower you should reevaluate who you associate yourself with. I believe that there is a lot of family, as well as one-on-one counseling that is needed in many Americans that are either unstable or dangerous to help stop this problem

i  belive people have the right to defend themselfs against the "people" that are sick and twisted in this world. the government cant change the 2nd amendment.

Margaret Silhasek's curator insight, February 12, 10:25 PM

The Newton shooting has sparked interest in reevaluating gun control laws (part  of the Constitution) in the United States. Although no changes have been made, the idea is still a prominent dispute in the US.
