Read the Rules

Great read. Hopefully everyone checks it out. One thing I realized very quickly in dental school is that patients evaluate doctors based almost entirely on their chairside manner and personality and not on actual outcomes (obviously a good combination of both is ideal) and because of that, folks like Dr. Hodad are far too common in medicine today.

Unfortunately though, in such a litigation happy society, it is hard for people to speak out against their colleagues. I rarely tell people that their past dental work was sloppy. I typically will say it in a "I would have done it like this" way. Trust me, I would love to tell them their old dentist is a quack but the last place I want to end up is in a courtroom, whether it is as a witness or as a defendant.

Thank you Mooks, for your contribution here.

Yes it is sad and totally shocking what is allowed to continue in places that are supposed to be about health and healing. Yes - government and WallStreet are not the only places of no responsibility or accountability. Big Binness practices suck - and the fact that they are not held to quality standards of excellence and continuous process improvement is in a word - INSANE.

Hi DKA,

You made some good points. Everywhere that there is big business, there is a lack of accountability.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Hey Nevada - hope you and yours are having a gr8 fracking global protest day.

It is the sickness of our times - a culture of no responsibility no accountability.

[-] 1 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

Yes, having a good day, and hope same for you. Have you heard any frack news yet?

Nope nothing yet - I do not have reliable TV reception so I don't watch it much or often - I expect the reports to filter in over the coming week.

[-] 1 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

No TV here either, since digital. Not worth paying for dish.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

You were not offered the signal converter option for the broadcast signal?

Anyway you are correct - all that anyone needs can be found over the internet. Just got to keep the eyes open and the search function a happening.

[-] 1 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

No reception---rural and behind mountain.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Ah - just as well - you do have internet at least.

ABC sounding hostile to the idea of fracking dangers ( go figure )

Global Protests Planned Over Gas Drilling Process - ABC

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Update - just went for a quick look : Gas drilling protests held in US, other countries

[-] 0 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

Thank you for links. Elite/Oil/Gas will use their MSM weapon.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Would be awesome if we could sue for false advertizing - not just fossil fuel but MSM as well.

[-] 0 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

Agree. Problem with frack (& other issues) always comes back to getting around the MSM misinformation and blackout.

And there are supposed to be laws still on the books that would kick their asses - if - we could find someone willing to prosecute and a judge willing to listen and then present a ruling that would coincide with - wait for it - the LAW.

[-] 0 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

The tools are there (law), but with the 'Corporate War Of Agression' , justice is being limited.

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

You know what the remedy is? Competition. When there is competition, it forces people to practice honestly, with quality, or they make less and less money. Accountability? The only accountability is risk and reward.

[-] 2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

we can make judgements and assessments without either

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

You have some pretty screwed up perspectives.

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

Well, you said it! And without even presenting any facts, logic, or even a coherent sentence to the contrary....so you must be right!

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Oh - No no - please don't be so modest - take credit where credit is due - you have been spewing crap all day - please - take your bow - and receive the jeers you so properly deserve.

[-] 0 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

You heard it here first, folks! Linking to data and facts, stringing coherent sentences together.... spewing crap! If you have a brain, and do not adhere to the party line, you are a fool.

The zombie apocalypse is already upon us. This forum, along with the millions of people zoning out in front of televisions, walking around and driving while texting are the proof.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26862) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

You are advocating 4 the support of the status-quo?

If you have a brain, and do not adhere to the party line, you are a fool.

Well I thought so - but - Hey - Thanks for just admitting it.

You only wish = "The zombie apocalypse is already upon us. This forum, along with the millions of people zoning out in front of televisions, walking around and driving while texting are the proof."

No so sorry another screwed up perception of yours or at the very least a dream of yours that holds no water - as your soaked sheets probably would attest. NOPE OWS Occupy all of the groups and this forum are alive and doing well.

Whoaaaa!

Zombies and a apcalypie!!!!!!!!!!!

Those are facts as spoken!!!!!!

You can't even write a decent cheezey soap opera, let alone a movie.

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

But I can write a book. I've written two. How about you?

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Like you, I have no desire to find a publisher.

I did used to write music though.

[-] 0 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

but I've published them anyhow, as you have no doubt seen.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

And yet......Look around and here you are............:)

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

I like to go to new places to see if anyone is interested in learning anything.

If you know better, and say nothing, you're an accomplice to ignorance.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Good thing for you there's nothing left for you to learn.

Try not to read too many threads, it could get dicey for you.

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

Me? I'm learning plenty. I'm learning the ins and outs of emotional debate.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Good for you.

Will have a heart when you are done, or will just use the knowledge against others?

[-] 0 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

In all seriousness. There might be some individual out here with a brain, who might realize that if half of the people say one thing, and half of the people say the opposite, that perhapss...... both of them are wrong?

Maybe somebody is looking for answers and wants to honestly discuss ideas? I've had two good conversations thus far.

But don't worry. I'll leave you the cesspool of emotional platitudes and partisan masturbation all to yourself, soon enough.

I gotsa video 4 U.

Lots of truth involved too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QDv4sYwjO0

Wow insults, How literary of you

You could leave now.

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 2 years ago

Lots of truth? Does the video discuss how colonization has impoverished and exploited africa? How the united states government funds rebel groups to keep countries in disrepair and distress? Oh, I guess those wouldn't be libertarian ideals. But hey, if it's got enough facts for comedy central, it must be real!

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

the watchmen is a dark DC comic about the trials of being a super hero

The Comedian was the only one that didn't lose his heart in the end according to Rorschach

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Oh but they are. They VERY much are.

Across the board it's the libe(R)tarians that profit.

Don't be fooled by the feel good propaganda.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

little known: When Dr Rand Paul - an eye doctor - did not like the state board certification that allows him to practice medicine, HE CREATED HIS OWN CERTIFICATION BOARD

[-] 1 points by Nevada1 (4784) 2 years ago

Thank you Bensdad for post. Another problem everyone needs to know about.
