Comment Re:Mandate reporting when antibiotics are prescrib (Score 1) 75

Yes. But we need to be aware that man is not the only source of antibiotics. They naturally occur. We get a good lot of them from plants and bacteria, starting of course with penicilin which we got from mold, and which was already present on salted food and damp environments. What we did was to make antibiotics present in organisms other than their natural sources.

It's time to start thinking about how a society which want a social safety net can incentivize people people to not have children they can't afford.

Because we have such a problem with criminal lawlessness and uncontrolled breeding among trust-fund kids?

You already have a segment of people with, effectively, no need to ever provide for themselves. They don't seem to be causing any more trouble overall than anybody else, and most of them seem to manage to find something worthwhile to do with their lives.

The Andromeda Strain was published in 1969.

The United States has some disease reporting, it started at least 75 years ago before the antibiotic bubble. This CDC Report summarizes the present state of disease reporting, in two pages. We need higher standards of reporting and legal penalties for failure to report.

Because Hillary Clinton sent emails not only from an email server, but also received emails on that same server. *Including* emails from some one named Huma Abadein, a foreign sounding name.

Plus, if you vote for her instead of the game show host, your balls will shrivel and fall off.

Listen to interviews with him back when he was a surgeon. He had that same slow, even mannerism, but spoke clearly about his profession. Either he's afflicted with some kind of dementia, or more likely, he's one of those people who's so focused on their field he doesn't know anything else, but so egotistical he thinks he knows everything.

We grew up out there, saw that it was a cultural and economic dead end, and fled as soon as we could. We understand the rural lifestyle quite well as we were raised in it.

But do you understand why others find it attractive? Somehow, I seriously doubt it. And if you do not, you do not truly understand it.
