Kaiser Hospital hires people that do not allways do their job.  Here in Oregon Kaiser had a Indian Doctor (from India) who was very incomptent he fled to Australia but had to come back to face the music.

Some doctors don’t care how they do their job.

A year ago I went to a state doctor (dentist) the dentist was also from India and he really really caused me pain.

And I asked for it because he told me what country he was from, I really should have just gotten out of the chair because I knew he would be a bad dentist and he was not in the performance of the drilling and filling but the pain he inflicted giving the pain medication, did not put anything on the gum to numb it or anything.  Of course he was saving the State of Washington money. 

Nowadays you have to watch your doctor bcause your doctor could put you under.  AS IN SIX FEET UNDER THE GROUND.

Look at the cartoon again, the patient is
Afgani Stan—and the Dr. is Daniel Boone, better known as “Manifest Destiny.” 

Yes, I agree we need socialized medicine, but that’s not what this is about.

p.s. It’s true he didn’t promise us a rose garden; he actually promised nothing; he offered hope.  Sounds like a religious experience.

Its more like a spoonful of BS makes you do the “Vertical Charles,” every time.
During the administration of the shrub, it was all I could do to watch the news, now we have to endure the nightly news being disrespectful to President Obama, when all along the campaign trail, he has not promised us a rose garden, but tough work and many miles to go.
Mr. Fish, as always you are spot on in your analysis of the problem and we must get to the point when we absolutely need single payer health care.
Hopefully this is soon.

A spoonful of BS makes the medicine go down!  I think this medical facility is designed for the criminally insane—it’s a place where a lunatic makes the same mistake over and over again.  This particular type of mental illness is known as the Napoleon Complex—Napoleon went into Russia and was defeated; Russia went into Afghanistan and was over-whelmed, and now the U.S. follows Russia’s disastrous strategy, only to create another calamity.    I DIDN’T VOTE FOR THIS!
