When you are sick, do you want Dr Woke
or Dr Smart?

Original Article

Medical school and postgraduate training is a long and arduous journey, often taking 8-10 years beyond college. There is much to learn, process and assimilate. Clinical judgement stems not only from experience but also from intelligence. Medicine is a high stakes game. Sickness and health lie in the balance, as does life and death (or vision and blindness in my professional world of retina surgery). Medical errors can be due to accidents, incorrect judgement calls, or lack of knowledge. When your health or life is on the line, you want the smartest physician caring for you, making critical decisions, or performing challenging surgery.

We want Dr Woke of course, right? We need wokeness as a primary hiring consideration for airplane pilots and air traffic controllers too, right? Yeah, right. :(

Doctors - my colleagues - have only themselves to blame. Suckling on the teat of insurance, fed dollars, and pharma they have become whores - not just the academic types but virtually every physician who works as an employee and is afraid to do what they have been supposedly trained for - to be a professional. We largely do what we are told and treat with the drugs which are permitted. God forbid we might openly disagree with the party line.

Thirty years ago, before Woke was a thing, I had a Dr. Affirmative Action.....that was bad enough. After one visit, I found a real doctor with whom I've been ever since. 'Nuf said.

I have always said that there is nothing magical about a diverse group of people. A diverse group of idiots is still stupid. If I have a brain tumor I want the BEST team not the most queer, or of different colors, or any other difference. If the best group is made up of Eskimo lesbians so be it. Or dark skinned midgets or a variety of humans. The best, the most talented, the smartest, the brightest. Whomever that group happens to be or not be. Political correctness needs to be kicked to the curb.

A lifetime of experience tells us that Woke is never the way to go. Affirmative action, diversity and inclusion theory has caused a whole generation of science, business and government progress to slow down to Mitch McConnell speed.

With wokeness at the head of the class, I expect that those who self identify as republican won’t have medical treatment good bad or otherwise as an option.

If you’ve got some serious medical issues it might be a good idea to get them taken care of now by people who know what they are doing instead of some voodoo priestess swinging a dead chicken over them/they/he/she/it’s head.

A time is coming soon when you will be forced to submit access to your social media and to answer a questionnaire about your opinions on social issues and equity before you will be given medical treatment. That is, unless you are an illegal immigrant.

The entire medical profession has beclowned itself over COVID and “woke” ideology. I have lost all respect for most of them, and I don’t believe anything they say. I can tell which ones are “woke” as soon as they start talking.

Because of affirmative action and woke admissions to medical schools, I only go to white or asian doctors since they're the ones most likely to be competent after all the tokens are admitted.

Despite the White House fury that GOP governors face for sending migrants to sanctuary cities, El Paso's Democrat-led city government has been doing the same for weeks -- and is asking for the Biden administration to pay for it. Led by Mayor Oscar Leeser, a Democrat, the Texas border city has dispatched at least 28 charter buses filled with migrants to New York City since August 23, at a cost of more than $600,000, KFOX-TV reported this week. City officials say that they expect the buses to be paid for by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of a quarterly reimbursement process covering emergency food and shelter for migrants.

Denver is set to provide 140 homeless people with $12,000 in cash with no strings attached to help get them out of destitution, and a last ditch effort to combat soaring crime rates in the Mile-High City. The city has allocated $2million from the American Rescue Plan Act to fund the program, which will be run by the Denver Basic Income Project. The total program, which will cost around $9million, is seeking to help around 820 people, but the $2million provided by the city will fund around 140 people. The rest of the money will be raised through charitable foundations, including the Colorado Health Foundation and the Denver Foundation,

When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died in September 2020 and President Trump began moving to replace her, the Left was at their typical level of rage. I was walking along Main Street in my hometown of Grapevine, Texas one morning shortly after the justice’s passing and was struck by a perspective of her career that I decided to tweet: Just a reminder that Ruth Bader Ginsburg could have casually retired at 80 yrs old under Obama and been replaced by an ultra progressive in their 40s . . . but they chose not to.

On a recent Wednesday evening, the blue-tinted plastic-bags loaded with empty cans and drained bottles look like a bunch of garbage to passers-by on the corner of Riverside Drive and West 89th Street. But to a group of family members from Queens, headed up by Jeanett Pilatacsi, they symbolize a livelihood. Each bag is filled with about 200 discarded beverage containers — valued at five cents apiece when redeemed at an Elmsford, NY recycling center. Bit-by-bit, all of that aluminum and plastic provides an income for the Pilatacsi clan. On the most profitable days, ambitious canners can accumulate 100 blue bags of returnables,

Next time, Joe Biden should be more precise when he calls for national unity. Because he and his fellow Democrats don’t like the kind of unity they’re getting from Republican governors. The decision by GOP leaders in Texas, Florida and Arizona to “share” their abundance of foreign migrants with northern cities and states that boast of their sanctuary status is apparently not a gift the Dems appreciate. In fact, the president and his party are so mad they’re setting fire to the welcome wagons. Shipping the migrants north is outrageous, a stunt, pure politics, they wail.

My Son Hunter, the new movie from Breitbart News, is a fact-based dramatization of the life of debauchery and corruption lived by the first son Hunter Biden. Although the movie takes certain artistic liberties, many scenes portray true accounts of the Biden scion’s life; this “True Fact” series will detail those accuracies. True Fact: Hunter Biden sat on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, while his then-Vice President father was in charge of U.S. policy toward Ukraine. Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma in 2014 — while his father was described as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.”

Since about mid-2015, no man has been more hated by the mainstream media and their Democrat allies than Donald Trump. The hysteria surrounding the now-former president has essentially not ceased since he came down the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his run for the White House. Things have been so insane that the moniker “orange man bad” was coined. Everything Trump does is scrutinized in the tenth degree. Anonymous sources constantly form the basis of press stories that often turn out to be false. To this day, Trump is still accused of being a white supremacist foreign agent for the Russians.

Sea level rise is increasing at a dramatic rate. Scientists at the University of Miami warn that if we don't act soon, coastal cities and towns will slowly diminish.

Social media is being flooded with complaints by visitors who are relentlessly bashing the Happiest Place on Earth while carping that Chapek is obsessed with cutting costs and raising prices instead of reinvesting in the resort, according to the New York Post.

“The documents were declassified!” “Trump had every right keep them!” “They posed no risk to national security!” Conservatives have been defending Trump with these kinds of arguments ever since the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago last month. They’re missing the point, though. Seeking to prove that Trump did nothing wrong in possessing these documents is like trying to establish that the victims of Stalin’s show trials weren’t in fact Trotskyites. Well, of course they weren’t. But Stalin didn’t care if his enemies – perceived or real – were Trotskyites or “counter-revolutionaries.” What mattered to him was that they were his enemies.
