New York City to Restrict Prescription
Painkillers in Public Hospitals’
Emergency Rooms

New York Times, by By Anemona Hartocollis

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/11/2013 8:29:54 AM

Some of the most common and most powerful prescription painkillers on the market will be restricted sharply in the emergency rooms at New York City’s 11 public hospitals, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said Thursday in an effort to crack down on what he called a citywide and national epidemic of prescription drug abuse. Under the new city policy, most public hospital patients will no longer be able to get more than three days’ worth of narcotic painkillers like Vicodin and Percocet. Long-acting painkillers, including OxyContin, a familiar remedy for chronic backache and arthritis,

The nanny state punishes everyone to prevent the few from committing crimes.

The Nanny State punishes only the innocent. It never punishes those that deserve it. In this case, those with significant pain, which a doctor is bound to treat, has now been legislated top limit full treatment. This is a classic example of elected officials practicing medicine. If you or I did that, we would be in jail. But because elected officials are immune from the laws that goobern the practice of medicine, they can dictate who gets what and when and how much. This has nothing to do with protecting the public or improving health. It has everything to do with the absolute control by the goobernment over every aspect of the goobernments peasants’ lives.

Tiny Bloomie´s Nanny State. Wait till he´s no longer mayor and his billions are unleashed on his various pet causes: repeal of the 2nd Amendment, food consumption, where you are allowed to live and work, etc. He has already stated his intention to be Nanny of All. Since he is so anti-arming the law-abiding citizenry, I propose he lead by example and disarm his huge security posse. (s/o)

Re ER drugs, I suspect the problem in the city-owned (HHC) hospitals, which are largely war zones or sinkholes, is more staff pilferage and diversion than actual ER use. Of course, for the private hospitals (which Tiny´s tried very hard to drive out of business for years), this then leaves them over to legal liability if they do dispense outside the city hospital guidelines, so Tiny´s gifted the trial lawyers. See how the system works?

My wife is an ER nurse so believe me when I tell you that drug seeking is a major problem. But, and there is always a But (I like Ann COulters description of people who always use this contrivanmce when debating as screaming But Monkeys) doctors and nurses are pretty good at recognizing them.

In reality these patients are "frequent flyers" known in ever ER in the area and since their brains are either addled by drugs or wracked with withdrawal they are about as subtle as a baseball bat to the forehead.

I have a headache, Vicodin makes it go away, or The other Dr. have given me percocet and that always works are pretty much dead giveaways. A person in pain who has been treated before dosn´t go through the charade. They will state right up front, I ran out of painkillers and was hoping I could get some relief. Drug seekers always put on a big show.

Prescription drug abuse is a big problem but it is not ERs at fault. Too many unscrupulous doctors are. The druggies know which doctors overprescribe and which ones don´t. The overprscribers get a LOT of repeat business.

#7 there are more than a few people like me left, and most of us read Lucianne!
#5 agreed, biggest problem are the docs who overwrite scripts for painkillers though NY is pretty good about tagging them, and in NYC ER docs/RNs are pretty good about spotting ´frequent flyers´. It´s just that the HHC hospitals are war zones with high turnover and that no one talks about theft....

Had to laugh at the phony numbers regarding O votes in NYC. Half the population couldn´t vote due to power outage, flooding, homes floating away, people dying, etc. due to Sandy.

So easy to fix the voting records under those circumstances.

Since when did Bloomberg have time to get his medical license? Was this before or after he was being a dietician and measuring how much salt was in food or before he was checking fast-food joints for how much soda they served. Wonders never cease with this guy and how he thinks he can dictate to others. This is a medical decision made by medical doctors not naggy little mayors.

I think that the unintended consequence here will be more ER visits for pain meds. Give 5 day supply, they´ll be back every 5 days. 3 day supply, every 3 days. This will add to the ER congestion and wait times for those who are truly sick.

I have volunteered in the ER of a local hospital - and yes, the doctors and nurses can spot a drug shopper very quickly.

I had the occasion to visit the same ER a couple of years later when I was bit by a copperhead snake. I´m certainly not "a shopper" and I would´ve been major mad if someone said "uhh, we have to withhold pain medication."

If someone is really in pain, or is recuperating from surgery, an accident - any health provider will tell you that they recuperate much faster if they are not fighting intense pain during the process.

This is one scary, judgmental little man.

It´s completely irrelevant whether prescription painkiller abuse is or is not a problem. It is none of the government´s business, and they should butt out.

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article

The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

Obama shouldn´t embrace
race-rousing Sharpton
Chicago Tribune, by John Kass    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/16/2014 9:23:31 AM     Post Reply
It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?
