Posted on 10/29/2008 6:47:29 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Sheesh! Talk about being unprofessional! DUmmie PCIntern, who works at some sort of health clinic, got into a fight with a patient because she dared to call Obama what he is...a socialist. So what does DUmmie PCIntern do? He got right into her face by snapping angrily at her as you can see in his THREAD titled, "Got into a 'fight' with a patient today...." So let us now watch DUmmie PCIntern act completely unprofessional in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, thinking that DUmmie needs a deep whiff off a chloroform rag, is in the [barackets]:
Got into a 'fight' with a patient today....
[May I send you a pink slip?]
My blood pressure is getting out of control with the election, the Series here in Philly and the insanity which has accompanied both, the economic trials of attempting to run an ethical health-care business and to stay alive.
[Screaming at patients is ethical?]
I had just fielded about six phone calls from distraught people and I walked into the room to check a patient who had just had her dental prophylaxis. She is actually quite friendly, but right from the get-go she said to me, and this is a quote, "We're finished as a country if Obama's elected." My reply to these sorts of statements from patients has been, "Why do you say that?" with a smile of course. She replied, "Because he's a socialist and wants to spread the wealth around."
[Obama did claim he wants to "redistribute the wealth" so that makes him a socialist as the patient correctly stated.]
Unbelievably, I went right into attack-mode WHICH I NEVER DO - and I said, "Please listen to me...please just stop and listen to me. Please. This morning no one less than andrea Mitchell, married to Alan Greenspan and certainly no friend to socialists of any stripe, told your fellow-traveler Joe Scarborough that this quotation was taken out of context and that he was describing arcane points of law. Obama's a centrist Democrat, for crying out loud, he doesn't even believe in Gay Marriage. What does it take to get through to people like you. Look, I know you're going to vote for McCain and that's fine, but do it for reasons which you and everyone else with a brain, feel are legitimate. And what's more, i know you well, and you would NEVER EVER vote for the black guy."
[DUmmie PCIntern accusing his patient of being a racist.]
She had no denial of the last point, and for the rest, she just dismissed it with a wave of her hand, and said, "Please just check my teeth, I have to get to lunch." I did so, stood my ground - did not apologize for my 'outburst' and she left with a smile and a good goodbye.
[The patient remained friendly despite you acting like a complete jerk by accusing her of being a racist.]
I never ever do this...this is really the first time...and what bothered me is that when I started the rant, my voice got pitched and I could almost feel myself crying with frustration that a well-educated, well-comported lady would just repeat this kind of talking point with me and then dismiss me with a wave of her hand as though I was insignificant. After 27 years. and you know what...I'm glad I did it in this case. she'll be back or she won't - probably will, I participate in her insurance plan. and that's what counts.
[Sniff! A DUmmie got dismissed with a wave of the hand for being insignificant which is what he is.]
This election is going to sort many things out.
[Including your sanity. Now on to the other DUmmies...]
That's not an outburst. That's just tellin' it like it is. If she doesn't like it she can stop being a bigot.
[She was only a bigot in the fervid imagination of DUmmie PCIntern.]
she isn't well educated.she has a big fat hole in her soul and that makes her deficient.
[Stated a member of the DUmmie Thought Police.]
That's not what I expect from a professional whether physician, dentist, barber, bartender, etc.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Practicing for 30+ years and I need lessons from you?
I thought we purged all the trolls.
[Responded DUmmie PCIntern angrily.]
A successful professional learns to listen but not react to things a patient might say and in particular professionals never get confrontational with a patient about such things as politics, sports, religion, et al.
Yeah let's just roll over and ignore the racism and bigotry. In fact, let's apologize if we don't agree vehemently enough with the racist comments! By golly, if a patient walks into a doctor's office and starts ranting and raving bigoted lies, well that doctor is unprofessional if he doesn't agree 100%!! 'cause that's what it's all about, folks! Agreeing with racists. Tolerating bigotry. Letting the lies go unchallenged. Anything else would be uncivilized.
[Too bad this patient's "racism" was all in the imagination of DUmmie PCIntern.]
Way to go, lose your temper with a patient, post it on an open forum, then lose your temper again when a stranger suggests you may have been unprofessional. Your response proves my point and indeed the case is closed.
EIGHT YEARS of these conservatives cramming their ideas down everyone else's throats....talking about politics in inappropriate places without a care in the world about who hears them...thinking they can run roughshod over people who disagree with them, and not returning the courtesy of letting someone else speak their piece. I'm sick of it. Our time for talking is long overdue. I don't care if they don't want to hear it. They didn't care when I didn't want to hear them. And I think you handled it gracefully. She started it. She just didn't expect you to finish it.
[Tomorrow the world is mine!]
A woman in my office confessed that she could never vote for Obama because he is a Muslim, and once a Muslim, always a Muslim. I told her I had had enough of lies, that A) there is no crime being a Muslim and B) he is not a Muslim any how. I then reminded her that false witness was a breech of the Ten Commandments. I told her that she was welcome to find another doctor. The next day, there was a complaint to hospital administration about that mean old doctor from her employer-the sheriff of Collin County Texas. (reddest of the red, in case you haven't heard). The next day was I was paying for my tires when the attendant at the Goodyear Tire store pulled his knife out and stuck it to my throat because "anyone who votes for Obama should be shot and killed". It's great to be a Texan during election season.
Forgive me if I don't believe the knife story. If true, why isn't that guy in jail?
[And this DUmmie WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity!]
Thank you for calling me a liar. I was there. It happened. It was my neck. I have bought tires from that store for seven years, and know that the young man is a good enough fellow. He is a Desert Storm veteran, and I have known him a long time. He thought he was being funny-he said that he would use a hatchet and then a knife just like Mr. McCain said. Emotions are raw here-they know that McCain is doomed to failure, and they know that both houses will be in strong Democratic control. So, yeah-I cut the guy some slack. I thought about writing Goodyear, and I thought about calling the cops-but to what avail? Changing hearts and minds is done by mature, peaceable means-not by confrontation and posturing. I choose to be grown-up. Kind of like Obama. But-I still don't like you calling me a liar. Come to North Texas for a while-see what we put up with.
[Still lying, I see.]
I'm a veterinarian and I've been wearing my Obama-Biden button on my white lab coat. I don't say anything about politics unless the client brings it up. If they bring it up and I've concluded my exam and treatment of my patient, I don't hesitate to discuss politics. I brought a RW conservative over to voting for Obama just yesterday after he started with "Don't you think he's a terrorist who's going to redistribute wealth?" Made my day.
[Yet another phony "conversion" story. Nobody is ever going to be convinced by a DUmmie.]
I guess Mary Matilan is a raving lefty loon, or atleast agrees with them because of her marriage to James Carville.

In for the Ping.
I went to lunch yesterday to celebrate the birthday of the only other conservative in my office. She’s support staff, I’m a boss. Poor thing, she had to sit at the head of the table, no one talked to her except me and one other person, no one sang, no cake.... and half the office was being driven to the polls for early voting by the most liberal guy in the office. So of course, the talk was of politics and then of religion (bashing mine, attacking divinity of Christ, etc.) I was very uncomfortable and said some things I regret... very mild things but still, I usually choose not to get into an argument I can’t win unless I’m getting paid to do so. So they bashed Sarah and Christ. I’m ashamed to say I did defend Sarah but did not speak up to defend my savior... but I guess he doesn’t really need defending but I could have modeled my faith better. Sigh.
Once more into the breech, DUmmies.
ObamaCare: Get in their faces!
I live in L.A. my husband works for the studios. I know exactly where you are coming from.
I work for the local Boy Scout office. Lot different there.
I think most of these accounts are made up by people fantasizing what they would do in this situation.
Well BObama TOLD his faithfull brownshirts to get in their faces and argue.
Wonder how many patients have been verbally abused when they are already weakened.
they should play THAT on election night.
