Heard a person do with pharmaceuticals talking on TV yesterday to the effect that antibiotics etc shouldn't be prescribed for children under 12 for fevers etc and then I am sure I heard him say something to the effect that persons not expected to live much longer should not be prescribed drugs to prevent heart attacks or stroke!! Now please don't quote me but both Phil and I were sure that is what we heard.
I will look into as sometimes what we hear on the news is not always told in full so we can get the wrong end of the stick. I will look into this and see if I can find out the whole story. Very interesting to a couple of oldies.
We've sort of been following the US Presidential elections and were sorry to see yet another Republican drop out after the results in Florida. We are very thankful that in Oz we don't have a president or, if we ever did, he/she would not be elected in the same way as in the US. I dread to think how much money is thrown away every 4 years where it could be put to use in so many places where it is sorely needed.
I have my preference when it comes to potential candidates and yet some American Facebook friends don't entirely agree with me. The man (I can't call him a gentleman by any stretch of the imagination) with yellow hair terrifies me and as Phil said to me yesterday "If he becomes President I can see WW3 not far off!" I wonder if anyone else has any thoughts on the subject.
Of course we have our own Federal elections due later this year and I feel that is also going to be very interesting. I think my politics may differ from many of my blogging friends but to me that is what democracy is all about. Freedom of thought if not entirely freedom of speech in the politically correct world of today.
