re: Video: Alien activity on the moon 4/26/2016 - pleading the fifth
I started at the 5:00 mark and was enjoying it until he pointed out a "pipe" that I guess resembled one if you suspend belief and perspective for a moment. And if there is any "mining" occuring on the moons surface it's likely a clandestine operation from earthlings, not aliens....

re: Defeat the APRN Scope of Practice Expansion Attempt - Louisiana Senate Bill 187 - pleading the fifth
Ha what a surprise. Administrators have done more to royally F the healthcare system than docs could ever do. Shall we get into the brilliance of value-based purchasing, linking reimbursements to patients satisfaction scores (which is completely idiotic and only something bureaucrats could possi...

re: Defeat the APRN Scope of Practice Expansion Attempt - Louisiana Senate Bill 187 - pleading the fifth
[quote]But what's funny is, studies have shown that NP's order more imaging, more follow up studies, and more referrals to subspecialist than do Family practitioners, thus eliminating the savings gained through decreased reimbursement.[/quote] Hence the qualifier in my post. While I agree mid-lev...

[quote]I beg to differ. I saw an NP in December for a sinus infection. Bill was in excess of $300[/quote] This is basically true across the board. The charges and reimbursements are sort of modeled after CMS and don't change much if the same service is being provided. Cash for service payments ar...

Auto lease ending - sell, trade, or turn in - pleading the fifth
I've done a pretty good job of keeping my mileage way under lease term (10,000+ miles under) and the car is in "very good" condition. Has had one accident 2 years ago that qualifies as structure damage according to CarMax. Clean Carfax report though. CarMax offer to buy was $1200 less than my lea...

re: Trump was a total Beta next to Bill O'Reilly last night - pleading the fifth
I don't support Trump at all but I thought it was a typical Trump interview. Not sure where all this beta stuff is coming from. Maybe Trump wasn't as high energy as normal but he just completed a debate so I'll give him a pass....
