What Medical Reviewers for HMOs Do

Posted by libhom Thursday, April 08, 2010



One mistake that advocates of healthcare reform made was not to discuss the corruption of HMOs and health insurers and the deadly consequences. We need to educate people on why these corporations need to go.

  1. You may or may not be pleased to learn that, according to a Pew poll, gays are trusted much more than atheists:

    "A candidate's religion continues to play a key role in shaping vote choice. Nearly four-in-ten (39%) say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who is Christian. Moreover, 63% say they would be less inclined to support a presidential candidate who does not believe in God – the most negative trait tested."

    I don't like your editing or banning criteria:
    "Heterosexist, racist, misogynistic or otherwise bigoted comments are subject to deletion as are comments advocating in favor of terrorism.

    Any comment advocating the physical, emotional, or sexual abuse of children will get the poster banned."


    What's the point of having a blog if you're only going to discuss issues with people who already agree with you. I guess validation is nice, but I get that from my closest friends without expecting it from my entire reading audiences. For example, a lot of people disagree with what they read (or the purpose of my publishing) what can be found at the Truth About Kos blog. Nonetheless, I've never edited their comments out because they're irrelevant, factless, and determined to deny the importance of documented facts.

    I prefer to let the obfuscatory defenses of Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga stand for themselves.

    And if you want to ban homophobic content, you surely will never print the letter that Markos Moulitsas wrote against ALL gay participation in the US military, which letter Moulitsas published at his college newspaper.

  3. The Pew poll you cite shows how much senseless bigotry there is against atheists in this society. Those of us who are atheists already knew about this bigotry because we see it in our daily lives. Prejudice against atheists is just as irrational and shameful as prejudice based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status.

    If you follow this blog for long, you will see that there is plenty of room for disagreement and debate without the bigotry and abuse advocacy mentioned in the comments policy. If people want to have comments published that violate it, they can simply go somewhere else.
