Is someone could give him my Forum Legend title please? The poor guy is obviously distressed to not have one and it seems to really make his life miserable.

Re: What is Acceptable

" And bastard nurses who make money from other people's sicknesses. They must be creating the sicknesses for their own evil ends."

Most nurses may be "innocent" but the medical industry does rely on illness / perceived illness in order to make money

Yes, and supermarkets rely on people being hungry.

What was your point again?

Maybe I'm being overly defensive but your use of "innocent" (including quotation marks) gave me the impression that you disapprove.

Show me a for-profit company that isn't in it to make money...

@ Carlos

Yes, you're being defensive. Many doctors (and nurses) are in it to make a profit whilst others are in it to help people / job satisfaction

OK. For sure, money does motivate some who work in healthcare. I won't deny that.

I object, however, to your disapproval of medical industry for this. I think it is hypocritical at best.

We all have skills that we sell to the highest bidder. The world isn't free. You want something I have, why should I give it to you? Likewise, why should a doctor who's worked for years through med school, up the ranks etc. offer his services for free? S/he's got to earn a living too, you know.

Why should a company that's spent billions developing a drug give it out for free?

Put anotherway, if you had a single choice, would you spend on paying the doctor to cure you, or a marketing executive to run a random ad campaign?

Oh, and for the record, I don't know many nurses who are "in it for the money"...

Re: What is Acceptable

Ive worked for other people .Its crap.My favourite story is this:- working in the company is like working in a tree full of monkeys. From the top all you see is smiling faces, from the bottom all you see is arseholes.
The best job is the one where you work for yourself -at least you can`t blame anyone else when it turns to shite

"I object, however, to your disapproval of medical industry for this. I think it is hypocritical at best."

Please show me where I showed "disapproval"?

BTW, you calling me a hypocrite is lame and for that reason I won't be bothering to respond to the rest of your post.

Do you want me to reply and are you going to read it, or not?

Use of "innocent" suggests you don't think the rest of the industry is innocent, and are therefore guilty of something.

something = making money. As they are "guilty", I take that to mean that you think this is wrong. Most people who think something is wrong will disapprove of actions they believe wrong. Hence, in my interpretation, you showed disapproval.

Regarding hypocrisy, I assume that you have a job and earn money. Why then shouldn't someone dispensing treatment to sick people earn money? Indeed, one could argue that because they are saving lives, they should earn more, after all, what greater value is there than saving a life?

If I am wrong in my assumptions, then I do apologise. It only needs you to clarify your position, which I guess you won't be as I'm too lame.
