For your reading pleasure and edification, I’ve added Movin’ Meat to the HCBS blogroll. Its proprietor (“Shadowfax”) is an ER doc practicing in the Pacific Northwest and the blog often provides useful and amusing insights into the real world of emergency medicine.
Despite the fact that Shadowfax is a confirmed Obamaton whose idealism sometimes overwhelms his capacity for critical thinking, he doesn’t always toe the Lefty party line. Recently, for example, he wrote a good post pointing out that health care is not a right:
Health Care is not a right. When advocates of universal health care misuse the language of universal rights to push for health care for all, we fall into the trap of over-reaching and provoke a justified pushback, even from some who might be inclined to agree with us.
So, pay him a visit.
