    I also like how because he works as a low level actuary that makes him omniscient about all things health care related. Look I don't pass myself off as an expert in military tactics just because I eat fried chicken at The Colonel's once in awhile. Same rule applies to him.

      "Blithely concerned"? that's an oxymoron, no? it makes no sense to think of someone being "blithely" concerned, does it?

      anyway, no, no, maybe, and no.

      edit:

      When it comes to women's health, I'd generally listen more to a male physician than to a woman who knows nothing whatsoever about anatomy or endrocrinology or any other health-related field.

      and when it comes to economists, it depends upon whether they are speaking as economists or as paid political hacks. Paul Krugman says things in his column that are inconsistent with his own research, for example. I'd give more weight to his scholarly research than to his deranged political rants.

      For some reason I thought you were an attorney? isn't it the case that you can find an expert witness who will testify either for the defense or for the prosecution, depending upon who pays him the most?

      with engineering and actuarial sciences, there actually are certain objective standards that nearly all practitioners follow: math is math. you don't have an opinion on how an equation works. the only debate is which equation is most applicable to a given situation.

        Feel better now, after your rant?
        Concern troll is concerned. Got it. I await tomorrow's cry of wolf.

            So did you go to a licensed psychologist for that, or are you pulling that out of your actuarial ***?

                Hit a nerve, eh? It should have! Those things you criticize the most are also the very same things you yourself do the most. If you cannot notice that, why should anyone take anything you say seriously, ever?



                PS yes, that observation is a basic maxim of psychology: I got it from experts.

                  So when you go berzerk over my posts on put me on the ignore list, its because my criticisms of you are 100% accurate? Frankly, that's what I figured but its nice of you to confirm it in public.

                    It took a judge to overrule a death panel, at least for the time being. http://communities.washingtontimes.c...n-death-panel/

                      were I to go berserk, then yes, it would indeed be an indicator that you touched a nerve. It's been a long time since that happened, however; I took my own advice. I haven't called anyone names in quite a long time now.

                      putting you on the ignore list, on the other hand, is merely an indication that I have good hygiene.
