Reaping the wages of "One Child" - aka forced abortions - Is China Cooking The Books On Its Census Data? The population may be aging even worse than authorities admit in the latest 10-year census. Why China urgently needs to change its birth control policy.
Diagnosis as disease. Physicians are now making diagnoses in individuals who wouldn't have been considered sick in the past, and it's raising healthcare costs. If "over-diagnosis" is the "disease, then the cure is TORT REFORM!
Stories like the one above are really annoying because it is nothing more than media labeling.
Honest people with honest questions as to why Obama didn't offer up this "long-form" birth certificate when asked are immediately labeled "birthers" by the media. Sure there are some conspiracy nuts (on both ends of the political spectrum). But the vast majority simply wanted to know why Obama was refusing a request that came from registered voters.
Of course to any sane person, once that birth certificate was released the numbers of "birthers" would decline. That's because those people were NOT birthers as the media labels them, but folks who expect their questions to be answered by their political servants.
And make no mistake, ALL politicians in America are servants of the people. It is those who forget that very basic fact that are in trouble these days. Just as the mainstream media is in trouble by actions such as giving derogatory labels to those with legitimate questions. Journalists who want to keep getting paychecks better think twice about being so clever.
New Poll: Birthers Vanish, Rapture Suspected "Boy oh boy, if that’s true, then Obama’s decision to release his long-form birth certificate accomplished a feat on par with — nay, greater than — killing Osama bin Laden: it made America dramatically less racist overnight!"
I still haven't decided if this is a good thing or not.
On one hand, if the photos are released, it would just give ammo to terrorists. On the other hand, if we don't, it would just give ammo to terrorists. Claims that Osama is dead will always be met with claims he is still alive.
Releasing a gruesome photo would only titillate some and antagonize the rest. Not releasing any photo does the same. In a damned if you do, damned if you don't, what do you do?
At the end of the day, if the reports of the "treasuretrove" of information the Seals captured during their attack are true then so are two things, Osama is dead and it should be the beginning of the end of Al Qaeda.
