Heart Attacks

Sep 08 2013

In the movie “Sleeper,” Woody Allen wakes up 200 years in the future, where he learns that doctors have discovered the healthiest food you can eat is hot fudge. Sometimes, I know like him when I check out the medical news and see how much of what we took for granted to be true turns out not to be. Today’s example: everyone assumed that if heart attack victims could just get treatment faster, more would survive. So hospitals and emergency workers launched a major campaign to reduce the time between a heart attack and treatment. And it worked: A new study finds that between 2005 and 2009, the wait time for heart attack treatment fell by 20 percent. But about 5 percent of patients still died in the hospital. The same percentage who died four years earlier. It was one of the most successful projects in modern medicine – aside from the fact that it had no effect on saving lives. But it did provide more proof that anyone who says “the science is settled” has no idea how science works.

    I LOVE WATCHING AND LISTENING TO YOUR SHOWS.

    AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SEES THIS TRAITOR IN OUR PRECIOUS WHITE HOUSE FOR WHAT HE REALLYY IS? I AM SURE, WITHOUT ANY DOUBT, THAT OBAMA DOES NOT WANT HIS OBAMACARE DEFUNDED. HE KNOWS THAT IF THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN IN SEPTEMBER, IT WILL NOT GET DONE AND WE WILL BE STUCK WITH THIS HORRID MONSTROSCITY FOR EVER. SO HE KEEPS SYRIA IN THE NEWS FOR AS MUCH OF THIS MONTH AS HE CAN. SINCE WHEN DOES HE CARE IF HE GOES AROUND CONGRESS OR NOT? SINCE WHEN DOES HE EVEN CARE WHAT WE THINK OR WHAT CONGRESS THINKS? BUT IF HE CAN KEEP THE PEOPLE FOCUSED ON SYRIA, WE WON'T BE THINKING OF DEFUNDING OBAMACARE...RIGHT??? BUT HE IS WRONG...AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO IS CONCERNED ABOUT ALL OF THIS? CAN WE NOT SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES? WE NEED TO GET OFF OF SYRIA AND GET CONGRESS TO DEFUND THIS HORRID " HEALTHCARE HI- JACKING"!!!PLEASE SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO BRING THIS TO LIGHT GOVERNOR HUCKABEE...PLEASE !!!!!

    THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO AND FOR STANDING UP FOR OUR LORD GOD!!!
