People are Dying Every Year due to Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is the bane of the medical profession like no other leading to doctors being left with few choices in many instances but to limit their practice or get out of it altogether.  Take the rash of obstetricians several years back getting out of the business of delivering babies and opting for decreased services to women, in essence limiting their obstetrics choices.  But the real problem lies with the amount of people dying every year due to a variety of mistakes that could have been avoided were it not for their doctor’s blatant oversights.

Presidential Donkey Punch

The MTV Video Music Awards started the week off in grand fashion, and as usual, it had nothing to do with the ‘greatness’ of the awards show.  

MTV is a lover of controversy, and the VMA’s provided plenty of that in the form of Kanye West, or Kanye Mess if you want to follow popular Internet dialogue.  When Kanye West stormed the stage and essentially ripped whatever joy Taylor Swift felt for being the first country star to win an MTV VMA award straight out of her heart and stomped it flat in front of millions with his proclamation that Beyonce made a better video.

Punch heard ’round the NCAA

Today’s headlines may read “Boise State beats Oregon,” for the ugly display of what football isn’t supposed to look like among those with BCS implications. It was perhaps the most horrifically played game I’ve watched in years, with the sheer number of dumb penalties and the third and fourth quarter turnover race, this game ranked up there in sheer inconsistency and ugliness.

Sadly enough, the game could have either been a blowout by Boise State if they capitalized on their laundry list of mistakes, or it could have been Oregon singing songs of joy at destroying the BCS hopes of Boise State in the first week of play.

Instead, both teams looked terrible and suddenly the rest of Boise State’s first-thought cupcake schedule looks a bit more interesting, especially if the team finds itself coughing up the ball in crucial situations repeatedly. Oregon gave the brand new Pac-10 commissioner a headache to deal with on his first week in his new job, and did nothing to help the Pac-10′s image of being “the league USC plays in.”

Palin puts on a show

It seems like only yesterday when Rep. John McCain announced his running mate, GOP Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. America went wild. God forbid we have a woman in the White House.

She irritated many and charmed few.

Today, it’s next to impossible to take the name Sarah Palin seriously, especially with the recent developments in her storyline.

Pros and Cons: Free public health care

One of President Obama’s main platforms was a reform on U.S. health care. It’s difficult to deny that our healthcare system isn’t as good as it could be. Millions of Americans have no insurance and can’t afford to get the necessary medical help they need. Between people’s benefits being cut and unemployment at an all-time high, the idea of nationwide health care seems like a great idea.

As the Obama administration tries to figure out a healthcare deal, all we can do is wait. On Tuesday, it was announced that a decision will probably not be made before Congress comes back from its recess next Friday.

Pete Rose deserves his spot in Cooperstown Hall of Fame

This has been a busy month in sports.  Michael Vick was reinstated to play football.  The Cubs have taken the lead in their division.  Terrell Owens reported to training camp.  Steve McNair was shot and killed.  David Beckham cursed out some fans and showed how much he likes the United States.  

All of these make up big news for sports fans far and wide, but none hold a candle to the ethical and moral implications of the biggest story.

Bud Selig is debating on releasing the lifetime ban on Pete Rose from Major League Baseball.

Politically correct is sugar coated disrespect

America was founded on the basis of tolerance for all.  We would welcome the thoughts and ideals of massive groups of people and blend them within our grand population.  Assimilation into the American culture was the way things went for years.  And as all things once built on grand ideas and a better way of life, people began to feel more entitled than others, either through their own successes, or the hardships they and theirs had faced during their ethnic history.

As time went on, the culture as a whole mingled without slavery and later segregation, a new breed of discrimination has risen.  This discrimination hides itself behind “fairness” and “tolerance,” but it is actually the greatest form of social oppression possible in a free country.

Political correctness is a disease that cripples creativity and free thought.  It represents the chains that hold our society back from evolution, all while keeping the population from completely melding together as a whole.  Racism, sexism and religious intolerance are all reinforced by the politically correct, while people believe it is an effective means at proving they aren’t.

Phelps leads Americans down high road

At 24, Michael Phelps has lived the high life; both literally and figuratively.

Unfortunately for Phelps, for a while, the poor guy’s incredible Olympic achievements were outshined by the ominous photo… with the bong. The photo, published in January by the British newspaper News of the World, flushed Phelps’s “All-American good guy” image right down the drain. His reported $500,000 deal with Kellogg’s was also quickly dropped.

Sure he groveled and apologized to his fans for his “inappropriate” behavior. And sure, we forgave him. I mean, have you seen the guy swim?!
