Shocking state of the NHS:
Half a million patients forced
to wait 30 minutes on trolleys
before admission to A&E

Daily Mail [UK], by Jo MacFarlane & Brendan Carlin

The number of seriously ill patients forced to wait more than half an hour on trolleys and in ambulances before being admitted to accident and emergency has rocketed by up to 300 percent in just 12 months. Figures uncovered in an investigation by The Mail on Sunday reveal mounting delays for 999 patients at hospitals across the country as casualty units struggle to cope with Government cuts and the closure and downgrading of other A&E wards. Nearly half a million patients brought into casualty by ambulance last year were left for half an hour or more in vehicles or in

Wait until 2014. In the US, that 1/2 million is going to turn into 15,000,000 waiting outside emergency rooms.

This is already here. When I lived in CA, I was left on a gurney in the emergency room for four hours with pancreatitis before anyone gave me a pain killer and sent me home with a diagnoses of gall stones. Went back six hours later with a swollen liver and they still kept me waiting until my screams brought some attention. This ER was notoriously understaffed and overwhelmed with illegals. I can´t imagine what it´s like now.
I´m grateful I´m in a state with high quality health care and hospitals, but unfortunately, I now know what´s coming down the pike.

America has allowed a legion of fools, brainwashed by a cult of personality and bought by "free stuff", to deliver us to a health care debacle. If your state opts out of participation in ObamaCare, support those brave patriots who oppose the King.

It is indeed already here. Hospitals simply can´t hire enough bureaucrats and nursing "administrative" personnel. No money, however, when I beg to hire more skilled nursing staff in our busy ER.

Do not blame Obamacare...blame the people who voted for Obama, the SCOTUS and all the congressidiots that voted for this unconstitutional and illegal piece of "bleep".

It will get much worse than we can imagine in the US because BO and the legislature is allowing a gazillion illegals to enter and remain in the US.

This is the British template of national health service, meaning that medical service is free at point of service and general taxation pays all medical services.

This is not what obamacare is.

The German national health service is where insurance is manditory and those not able to pay for insurance are given insurance by the government which is paid for by general taxation.

This is not what obamacare is.

Obamacare is making insurance manditory and those who can´t afford insurance are given insurance and the bill is added to your insurance premiums. This is the worst of all options and you can be assured that medicare and medicaid cost will slowly be added to your premiums. It´s outright thievery. Don´t get sick.

Hard to imagine that Obamascare will be as bad as this. Realistically it will probably be much worse.

Thank all the Obama voters for our dark future.

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises
Telegraph [UK], by Damian Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity´s ´links

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

Enjoying a free lunch? No such

perks doled out by companies

Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/16/2014 1:05:29 PM     Post Reply
The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Asian pollution is causing a ´dramatic´

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
