      Corporations are people, and people practicing medicine without a license can be criminally prosecuted.

      I know, wishful thinking...

      You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it. -- M. Gustave

        what I went through just to get just a 2 year RN degree, I have often marveled at the Republican's getting away with practicing medicine without a licence.

          and three in the Senate, actually are licensed physicians. All others are not. On the Supreme Court, zero physicians. We still remember former Republican Senator Bill Frist's remote diagnosis, for which he was roundly excoriated in the press, just for attempting to diagnose someone without actually seeing them in person--which drew widespread public contempt, as even the common man knew that a doctor shouldn't be doing that.
              One of the ironies of current politics is that Republicans wrap themselves in the flag when they want US soldiers to make war on the Taliban and other right wing religious zealots in other countries, but while the soldiers are away, the Republicans are perfectly willing to pass laws here in the US that bear a striking resemblance to Sharia law. It would be easier for independent voters to recognize this if the GOP re-branded itself as the Pharisee party.
