jgoins, you said we should just kick them all out and I agree, well, Rand Paul is on his way in and he was never one of them, he has a clean slate..... the only thing I don't agree with him on so far is his foreign policy.... this is his first ever political stand and the people spoke.

Let's get one thing understood. When I say we should vote them out of office, the "them" I am talking about is everyone who currently holds office in congress regardless of their party line affiliation. I really don't care who gets voted in to office in their place but the newcomers should understand that Americans are tired of the same old bullshit and we can remove them in 2 years if they do not listen to us. I really don't give a flying fart who gets voted in as long as they replace an incumbent. I am not looking for a political party, I am only looking for a major change.

Let everyone you know know that November election needs to be about removal and not about politics or ideology.

Off Topic.....

Damn, Mrkim! Is this how it is around your place?


It's funny how the Border Patrol are ordered to fuck with American citizens at checkpoints that are far away from the actual borders but then the Federal Government just ignores the 3rd world country infiltration of our towns and our people.

People sit around and say how the government is so stupid but they just don't get it, they can't get it into their heads that America is being ripped to pieces from the inside on purpose.... and the lame comfortable citizens just sit around and take care of themselves, so much for standing together as one. Divide and Conquer.

Communism used to be the National fear-mongering ritual..... now it's Terrorism.... wake the fuck up!

Fake eye doctor huh? Just like all of the liberal shit-talkers you only give part of the story... you try to slash and burn... very destructive.... downright prejudice.

He's passed it many times before, so quit trying to just put people down to try to get ahead in the political game.

Rand Paul has released a statement, explaining that he avoided getting certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology due to a principled stance against some of their practices:

I took the American Board of Ophthalmology (the largest governing body in ophthalmology) boards in 1995, passed them on my first attempt (as well as three times during residency), and was therefore board-certified under this organization for a decade.

In 1997, I, along with 200 other young ophthalmologists formed the National Board of Ophthalmology to protest the American Board of Ophthalmology’s decision to grandfather in the older ophthalmologists and not require them to recertify.

I thought this was hypocritical and unjust for the older ophthalmologists to exempt themselves from the recertification exam.

In forming NBO, the younger ophthalmologists agreed to require recertification for all ophthalmologists.

In my protest to the American Board, I asked, “If the ABO thinks that qualify of care would be improved by board testing every decade, shouldn’t this apply to all doctors, not just those of a certain age? In fact, many of us argue that the older ophthalmologists need recertification even more since they are more distant from their training. CONT.



He can claim he is "board certified" since all board certification is a private matter. His is the NBO which he happens to own, but if he had a certificate from a cereal box that proclaimed "board certification" that would be true too.

Parenthetically, there are physicians who complain that the ten year rule of the ABMS is simply a money making scheme. There is some validity to that argument since 90% of those recertifying pass the boards again. It costs around $2K-$3K to recertify which is usually a written or computer generated test.

Board Certification started out as a way of determining who the "elite" physicians were by way of testing. Each specialty has its own board and over the years the certification has gone from "elite" to mandatory if you want to practice in most hospitals. Certification boards are all private corporations, not state entities.

As a result of this use of certification (and the fact that it is a lucrative business) there have been alternative certification boards that are not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) often in "specialties" not recognized by that board. There are a variety of reasons why certification boards such as the one that Dr. Paul started but in general they are not as rigorous as those of the ABMS.

Board certification is not needed to practice medicine in any state and is voluntary. Most hospitals require it for their staff (or at least require that you attempt to get it.) There is a disparity amongst specialties as to pass rate. Radiation Oncology has a very low rate (possibly 35%, they won't publish the figures any more) as does Psychiatry and Neurology while some boards have a 90+% pass rate. Fairly recently the ABMS certification boards went to the 10 year rule in which a re-certification process occurs every ten years. In general the pass rate for recert is in the 90% range. Certification preparation is also a big business these days.

Continuing Medical Education (CME), on the other hand, is an ongoing process dictated by each state. Some states require 50 hours while others demand less. You don't have to go to an exotic place with your mistress to get them, the two of you can get CME credits online or locally at meetings, usually for free.

Dr. Rand Paul is a well educated eye doctor with impeccable credentials. It appears that he has an outpatient practice (not unusual) and is a competent practitioner. He has no complaints against him on the KY Board of Medical Licensure site.

Nah man, Ft. Hancock is 625 miles from me here. If I were faced with what those cats down there are on a daily basis they'd be draggin a whole lotta dead bodies off my place. In Texas you have the right to defend your property with deadly force. We already played Texans and Mescans once and I can't see a 2nd round bein any better for 'em today.

Here's an interesting lil piece of history few people know. The term "gringo" comes from when the Texas army was marching into Mexico en masse. The troops commonly sang a song called "Green Grows the Grass" as they marched so the scouts monitoring the troop movements started callin 'em "gringos". But, it gets better .... the song was about how they were gonna kill all the Mescans and fuck their women which is why the term is typically considered derogatory from the Mescan point of view. Another side note the Mescans don't like to discuss is the number of Mescans that JOINED the Texas forces and fought against Santa Anna and also marched on Mexico with the Texas troops.

'Round here we just have to wonder if they're illegal or not since our fuckin governor won't let the cops even ask if they are or not. I've watched my whole life here as the complexion of my home state gets ever darker from the additions to the overall population by the ever increasing percentage of illegals.

Growin up there were always Mescan families around and I went to school with many of 'em. They were always pleasant people, hard workers, family and church oriented and took care of their own without askin the govt for anything. We got along fine as we respected them and they did the same for us, as it should be.

Today that's not the case with the influx of illegals who you'll commonly see jammin the emergency rooms at the hospitals for health care they never pay for, whippin out their Lone Star Cards (Texas uses a debit card like card for food stamps) at the grocery stores, hangin out at the "day Laborer" centers and such. Many of them fly their Mescan flags, have Mescan flag stickers on their cars and if you press any of for any personal details get really defensive and will tell you "Fuck off Gringo, I have rights and you can't do shit to me." That's an attitude we friendly Texans have a tough time grasping eye rolling

In 2006 they had a march in Dallas with over 1/2 a million all wavin their fuckin Mexican flags and DEMANDING their "rights" be recognized. If we had any kind of real federal government they'd just bring out fleets of buses and ICE agents for these demonstrations and check 'em out and load up all the illegals. Why they don't is all too telling of our govts. underlying agenda (*horse*)

LOL! grinning

You caught me off guard, I cracked up.

Thanks for those lessons up there, I never heard of that "Green Grows the Grass," thanks for that whole insider Texas view.

One thing that shocked me in that video up there was how the Sheriff was the one telling the people around there to arm themselves and be ready, I wish our Sheriffs were like that, a true American.

You know it's really bad, the betrayal by the Federal Government, when even the Sheriffs are saying that they are being abandoned by the Feds.

Why would you need a Sheriff to tell you to arm yourselves? Just do it on your own and act like you are not armed then nobody will know. I live in a small town in Arkansas and have seen Mexicans arming themselves by buying guns from the local fleamarket and yard sales where there is no paperwork required and paying outrageous prices for them. They are clearly arming themselves for something so I see nothing wrong with us arming ourselves as well. We have clearly been invaded and no formal war has been declared by either government even though conflict seems in our future. Another Alamo may be in our future very soon.
