What do you mean by increased patient expectations? The main worry that the article outlined was based on response times, which I would assume doesn't relate to patient expectations - although that could of course be a problem on its own compared to a health service without matching growth, it seem...

A very secure person in a very polite society. The "an armed society is a polite society" nonsense is bullshit. Yep. If you need the assurance that both you and your neighbours can and are willing to kill you at any moment in order to prevent you from murdering them and looting their prop...

I don't think the Founding Fathers envisioned the gun culture of a current America. For me the question is not 'If ordinary citizens are allowed to posses firearms', it is 'is this law really necessary?'. They envisioned an America where every able-bodied male between 18 and 45 was armed. They also...

More than a dozen local businesses were razed to the ground last Monday, while many more were looted in a night of arson, random gunfire and pitched battles, with heavily armed riot police unable to cope with the scale of the mayhem. Pretty sure that the situation isn't nearly that bad, I mean, who...

Seeing as now "A well regulated militia being Un necessary to the security of a free state" then there is no need for the second amendment as the purpose for which the right exists is no longer necessary. Nor was it necessary at the time it was written, as shown by the poor performance of...

I'm not here to argue about who is and is not a Christian, or whether one ideological difference is enough to make someone a non-Christian. And yet if I were to scroll up a bit, I'd find a quote of you explicitly saying that 'no true Christian' would hate LGTB people. In Christianity's purest form,...

Biologically speaking, race doesn't exist; socially speaking, it does. Well, actually, biologically, it does exist.

Ok I understand your point now, though it's not at all relevant. You edited out my reasoning for why Christians must necessarily love gays, namely, it's in the Bible, which is authoritative on Christian beliefs. The Bible in most peoples' translations also explicitly says that homosexuality is an a...

Why do we constantly feel the need to categorize historical events in black-and-white terms? Why does an event have to be 'good' or 'bad' for us to understand its context? Is it possible that the real world is a shade of grey that isn't represented by one positive or one negative adjective?
