My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 7 (Let’s Go Doctoring!’)

Three real-life incidents show there are problems with our health care system that no amount of government intervention can correct. The big problem with it is that doctors are human.

I should have added that my eye doctor said recently, “I used to enjoy my work, I felt I was really helping people. But all these new requirements, the paperwork, the insane amount of record-keeping–they’ve just taken all the fun out of it.”

Government–the less of it, the better.

    Yes, the medical system is certainly broken now. We know who broke it, and it seems almost impossible to get anything accomplished these days.
    I had a doctor several years ago who told me he was going to go find a different occupation, as he was fed up with all the nonsense. He did exactly that; is no longer practicing medicine. My younger son is in need of medical care and it is like “pulling chickens’ teeth” to get an appointment set up without waiting months. Once in the exam room, the doc (or more likely, a nurse practitioner) spends the whole 20 minutes staring at the computer screen instead of allowing him to explain what he needs. arrgh!
    Most frustrating thing that is going on these days.

    That is so sad. You are right, Lee. The less government the better. We are still suffering the effects of Obamacare, I believe.

    Now it’s socialism! Yikes!

    I know a surgeon who retired from a major hospital rather than succumb to their demand that he perform sex-change surgery on children!

    I have a friend who exchanges emails with me on a regular basis. He has a software program where he speaks what he want to say and his computer types it out. His emails are crazy; words are misspelled, sentences run on, and there’s not rhyme or reason to paragraphs’ beginnings or endings. I’m sure in time this technology will be improved to a high degree of efficiency. This all reminds me of the classic movie “Wall-E” where humans have all become gluttons because robots do everything for them.

    No chain is stronger than its weakest link. The people who have come of age in, perhaps, the last three decades, are progressively less clever than their seniors. It would seem that there are many people, even into their early 50s, who are missing common sense. No one would buy computerized dictaphone if they had enough sense to realize that they are junque.

    A sick and dying culture.
