We have Obamacare, which can’t seem to even sign people up yet. I wonder what will happen when Obamacare gets going? The way it works is as follows: you go to your doctor about some problem that you have. Your doctor can’t diagnose, or treat you until he text messages the 15-member panel. The panel diagnoses your problem, then sends a treatment schedule to your doctor. He reads the treatment, and is required to follow this treatment, or he will be fined $100,000. His second offense will be a fine and jail time. If for some reason he doesn’t agree with the treatment he can send his opposition to the panel, then the panel will rule on treatment.

A recent opinion regarding violence by John Chiazza (“Why does society ignore our grave gun disease,” AFN, Sept. 25) is not supported by data. Stricter gun laws will not reduce gun violence when many of the recent mass shootings are caused by individuals with mental illness and/or a broken family. He mentions nothing about addressing the mental health issues that are ever increasing in today’s society. Stricter gun laws don’t solve the root cause. Chicago, New York City, and California have the most stringent gun laws in the nation and just happen to also have the highest gun violence in the nation. People in Mexico are not permitted to own guns. How does that help prevent the gun violence by the drug cartels?
