Shriners to Take Insurance Money but Not Patient Cash

David Langford, O.D. on October 19th, 2010 under Optoblog •  Comments Off on Shriners to Take Insurance Money but Not Patient Cash

Apparently it’s possible to take insurance without having to collect any copays or deductibles from patients. That’s news to me. Apparently Medicare and Medicaid have a waiver you can get to allow this scenario, but the article leads me to believe that with “private” insurances you can just drop the copay. Huh.

The libertarian in me thinks that ideally I should be able to collect or not collect with impunity, but I was sure current contractual agreements with “private” insurers required that I always collect.

(Note: I put quotes around “private” insurance since Obamacare effectively takes the free out of free enterprise.)

Congressmen, VOTE NO on Healthcare Takeover

David Langford, O.D. on March 18th, 2010 under Optoblog •  1 Comment

What Obama and Pelosi and Reid and the democrats are doing with the “Healthcare Bill” is not reform, it is a full speed statist takeover. It is so far removed from our U.S. Constitution that it should have gone through the constitutional amendment process instead of an “up or down vote,” let alone exploring to “deem and pass.”

We have a bunch of leftists running our country and Americans won’t tolerate the erroding of their rights any longer. Congressmen, for those of you who vote Yes on this monstrosity there will be consequences. There is cause and effect. You are free to choose, but you are not free to pick the consequence of your choices. God rewards good for good and bad for evil. You will be held accountable.

Citizens, vote out of office any congressmen who votes for the healthcare takeover. Refuse to employ any ousted congressmen who voted yes. Refuse to support any group or organization that pays those ousted congressmen to speak or write books. May their names be a hiss and a byword for generations. May God forgive you because we won’t. Anyone who seeks to take away the liberty of our entire nation deserves no respect from Americans.

America, you are beginning to wake up from a hundred year sleep. While you were sleeping, progressive thought has entrenched itself in every fabric of our government and society. Our children are being trained to be liberal-by-default in our schools, by our media, and even by ourselves-because we were trained liberal-by-default also. Today we are a world away from what the Founders implemented and what made our country the greatest in the world.

Pride cometh before the fall. Please, America. We must humble ourselves. We must retrain in correct principles. We the people must have faith, hope, and charity.

I invite everyone to read: the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, The 5000 Year Leap, The Making of America, Liberty and Tyranny, and the Scriptures.

I invite everyone to listen to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and other liberty-loving commentators.

Next week I am participating in a caucus to choose a candidate who will appear in the primary. Probably very few readers have ever gone to a caucus. It will be my first time also. We can no longer afford to let others choose our candidates. We the people need to seek out those that will adhere to the principles of liberty and the Constitution. I invite everyone to find out their state’s election/caucus process (Utahns click here). We can’t wait to get involved in the November elections or even during the primary elections. Now is the time!
