Divided We Fall
American Thinker, by Seth J. Baum, MD

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 7/29/2013 1:02:30 PM

The question that incessantly tugs at my gut is," when will we say ´enough´?" I have the good fortune to interact with physicians across our nation. (Snip) Nearly everyone echoes the same sentiments. We are downtrodden by the yoke of our loss of social and economic standing combined with an overdose of unnecessary and crippling logistical constraints. Regarding the former, doctors have been subjected to an apparently intentional diminution of stature. Most obviously we are no longer "doctors"; instead, we are a mere segment of the blurred gamut called "healthcare practitioners".

Comments:
Doctors are busy people and few of them take the time to follow the subtleties of politics. Thus half of them approve of ObamaCare, even as they plan to leave the field of medicine. They need leadership and spokesmen, perhaps retired docs. If things keep going the way they are, it will be almost impossible to find a doctor.

Leftists hate anyone who has been ´seduced´ into honest science or industry.

It was no quirk that Mao banished all the ´intellectuals´ (anyone who owned a pair of reading glasses)to the rice paddies.

People who have developed a keen sense of logic and worldly common sense are a great threat to any Marxist Regime.

Nothing has changed.

Barky does not intend to deliver medical services, you silly, he intends to CONTROL medical services.

Big,big difference.

Doctors can only blame themselves. They allowed all these things to happen and did not get involved. And worse, many of them ignorantly voted for those who were paving the way for the extinction of the medical profession and for the end of quality medical care.

You can throw in the insurance companies also who cut their own throats on this. It has to be slowly dawning on them that they signed on to their own death sentence.

Doctors are no different than voters. All of these changes came upon us slowly while we were busy living our lives, trusting our government to do the right thing most of the time.

We woke up after Obama took office and began stealing us blind. Hospitals and lawyers dictate the mandates under which doctors must practice for fear of massive malpractice suits.

Dr. Baum´s question at the end is well placed. Is it too late? My answer is , I don´t know. The sleeping giant has awakened to find an all intrusive powerful government taking over our lives. With very few patriots in Congress, the go along to get along crowd don´t care what We the People think.

Nonetheless, we need to keep fighting. We owe it to all who have died to keep us free. We also need to pray harder than we ever have before.

I have doctor friends, and they are all mad and adjusting their practices. Many are leaving.

They should have pushed back against the AMA.

It is very sad watching the destruction of American medicine, and it´s true that the community of physicians let it happen. Sadly, it´s been happening for a very long time. Most physicians are very liberal when they are young. In the old system the realities of running a private practice made their thinking more conservative. Now, so many are essentially employees, not small business owners and that is why I fear for the future of medicine in America.

We have an option:

Divorce.



Most marriages end because of financial problems. $17 Trillion of debt going on $20 Trillion by 2016 will force our hands.

The US government may have all the plans in the world but when they are broke then that is it.

Personally I give this nation a 50-50 chance of disunion by 2020.

American doctors that spent massive amounts of money for an education are being replaced by foreign docs with a free education and will work for a fraction. Anyone on Medicare will have even more problems finding a physician with English as their first language.

Is it too farfetched to connect the dots between a brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy? I don’t think so. In his piece, Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, “The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and

Gender Confusion and the

Last week, the national press reported on a 56-year-old high school biology teacher in California who plans to undergo a sex-change operation (i.e. cosmetic surgery) and to return to the classroom appearing as a woman. “To have a teacher be authentic ultimately is good for students and for the community,” said Jennifer Levi of Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, or GLAAD, an advocacy group in Boston. Sadly, the situation is far more complicated and confusing than advocates of gender confusion or their allies in the media will admit. Although the American Psychiatric Association dropped the diagnosis of gender identity disorder in

After months of criticizing what they see as a bullying state bureaucracy, Lou and Linda Pelletier — the parents of 15-year-old Justina — found themselves in a recent court ruling portrayed as repeatedly getting in the way of returning their daughter Connecticut. In last week´s ruling, leaked to the media, Juvenile Court Judge Joseph Johnston said the Pelletiers had been verbally abusive, made threats and generally impeded progress. The parents, he said, "either directly or indirectly, continue to engage in very concerning conduct that does not give this court any confidence they will comply with conditions of custody."

´Honor Diaries´ is about the real

Despite what organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations say, the film "Honor Diaries" is about the abuses that women face around the world. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, human rights attorney Paula Kweskin, a writer and producer for the film, said it was clear CAIR had not seen the actual film and was trying to silence debate. “I mean, one of the most engaging parts about this film is that it centers on a salon of women engaging and talking candidly,” Kweskin said. “And they don’t all agree with one another, but they respect one another and they’re talking

On Coates v. Chait

Over the last two weeks, New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait and The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, two of the internet’s most admired liberal journalists, have engaged in an extended back-and-forth about the legitimacy of public critiques of cultural dysfunction in poor, inner-city African-American culture — and particularly the kind of critiques offered by President Obama, who often speaks exhortatively about personal and parental responsibility in addresses to black audiences. My impression (drawn from Twitter) is that many readers following the debate felt that Coates essentially won it with his most recent entry, a rich brief for the proposition that even (or

Makers of a film on abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell say the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter singled out their project for special objections. They have ankled the massively popular platform in favor of another crowdfunding site. Ann and Phelim Media have raised nearly $200,000 in five days on crowdfunding site Indiegogo for a planned movie about Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted in 2013 on a host of charges including multiple illegal late-term abortions, hundreds of violations of Pennsylvania’s informed-consent law, and three counts of murder. The movie will chronicle the man described by ABC’s Terry Moran as “the

Some are even ashamed of themselves, not that they will readily admit it. The man who was their hero has now been unmasked in every direction as

People are making porn in public libraries. Don’t take my word for it; go to any porn site and type in “library” in the search function (preferably on your own WiFi at home where there are no children present). But I warn you, it’s

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
