A psychiatrist linked to 11 drug overdose deaths in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties has agreed to give up his medical license and repay the federal government $509,000 in overbilled charges to Medicare and Medicaid, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
Was this guy actually given a choice?
China and Russia joined with Arab and Muslim states yesterday in urging the U.N.’s human rights watchdog to ignore a report from a mission to Darfur that blamed Sudan for continuing war crimes against civilians there.
After initially agreeing to the mission, the government of Sudan refused to grant visas to the five-member team because the country objected to one of the mission members. It said the member had previously spoken of genocide in Darfur, thus could not be objective.
If you ignore something long enough, does it go away?
The detailed three-page report suggests the late US attorney-general Robert Kennedy, with whom the movie star was having an affair, was aware, and perhaps even a participant in a plan “to induce suicide”.
Wait a minute, I thought she was having an affair with Jack? Did Teddy get in on the action too? The woman has been dead more than 40 years, let it go fer cryin’ out loud.
The Anti-Defamation League of New England, saying that hostility toward immigrants represents a growing form of intolerance, is making the fight against anti-immigrant sentiment a significant focus of the 60-year-old organization.
There’s little to no hostility to immigrants. The hostility is directed toward ILLEGAL immigrant. You know, those people who break the law, a lot! First by sneaking in, or overstaying their visas, then by continuing to stay. Those folks are the ones people are fed up with.
An Illinois appellate court ruled Friday that a Chicago woman can move ahead with a wrongful-death claim — the first of its kind in the state — filed after a car wreck that left her with a pelvic injury and, she says, the painful decision to have an abortion.
Michelle Williams sued John C. Manchester, alleging that his actions, as the driver of a car that collided with the one in which she was riding in 2002, led to the death of her fetus. Under Illinois’ Wrongful Death Act, a fetus is considered a person.
It’s a start!
Al Gore Jr. received more than $500,000 in royalties from the owners of zinc mines who held mineral leases on his farm near Carthage, Tenn. Now the mines have a new owner and are scheduled to reopen later this year.
Before the mines closed in 2003, they emitted thousands of pounds of toxic substances and several times, the water discharged from the mines into nearby rivers had levels of toxins above what was legal.
Can we say hypocrite?
Target received a wave of criticism earlier this week after the Star Tribune reported in a front-page article that some Muslim cashiers at Target declined to scan bacon and other pork products. They would call over another cashier to ring up the products, or in some cases, ask customers to do it themselves.
I guess Minnesota could now be considered a Muslim state? Talk about major dhimmitude. The more you give in to such absurd demands, the more they are going to demand. My suggestion….go back to where pork or alcohol is not an issue.
