Posted on 02/06/2012 8:19:50 PM PST by James Thomas
TOPEKA, KS (KCTV) - A Kansas board that denied a licensed doctor of osteopathic medicine a license was primarily concerned about the man's political views.
The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts is a 15-member panel appointed by the governor and decides the fate of doctors in Kansas.
Terrence Lee Lakin rose to the ranks of lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. He served on the front lines in Afghanistan and the war zone in Bosnia as well as a medical mission to Honduras. He saved lives around the world and received a Bronze Star for his service.
"I like helping people," said Lakin. "And I've been, since college wanting to be in medical field and help others."

Isn’t this the state that let Tiller the Baby Killer practice? Oh and it is the state from which Sabilius is from..wonder if Ms HHS has anything to do with this?
Considering that pedophiliac and rapist doctors seem to routinely go to other states and practice without interference, it should seem that is an option for him.
We will welcome you in Alabama, Col. Lakin. You might be surprised at what a nice place North AL really is.
In case anyone was thinking that a medical license was about knowledge and skills related to the particular branch of medicine. Nope, it's just a favor handed out to those who are signed on to the correct groupthink.
How much more will we take?
Fortunately for him, if he is somehow denied being able to practice medicine anywhere in the US, with his education, he could probably get another career going in a relatively dhort time.
I wonder how many on that board have connections to Obama’s health czar Kathleen Sebelius?
After the corruption with Kathleen Sibelius (the one who is now forcing abortions on Catholic doctors and nurses) and her overlooking a LOT of problems with abortionist George (the butcher) Tiller, I’d say it was a badge of honor to be refused a license from these jerks.
We’re known not only by our friends but by our enemies as well, and I can’t think of any better enemies for a patriot who loves his country to have.
Let them rot with their mark of the beast solidly on their foreheads. They’ll be able to do business because of it, but Lakin will be in much better shape than they.
"I solemnly swear that I will protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America..."
one word: Sebelius
Smacks of denying one employment due to adherence to “jewish science”. For all you historians out there who have wondered what it must have been like to live in 1930’s germany, wonder no more.
Sebelius country. Need I say more?
PS: Laksin did not take the best course of action re the order to deploy.
Now everyone is out of a doctor. Nobody won.
advise = advice ...sheeeeeeeeeesh...
Come on down to Texas, Colonel.
By what authority were those orders given?
It’s heartbreaking what’s happened to this man. And it seems not about to end any time soon. What sacrifice!
T-con, “Taking career advice from Farah can have serious consequences”.
Tex, you really think the Doc was following Farah?
Naa, maybe just another chance for a cheap shot at WND.
Par just trying to be as funny as the flat Ann Coulter?
You got a problem with Terry Laken’s position on the Obama?
Rab can but wonder.
I see conservatives on FR who think like that, they refuse to see how far things have gone, how close we are to an actual police state, who still insist things are getting better everywhere they go despite the whole of the US in a depression and getting worse. Yes, I can believe it.
I used to get that experience just by going to the airport. Its the main reason I quit flying.
“Oh and it is the state from which Sabilius is from..wonder if Ms HHS has anything to do with this?”
I’d say she has everything to do with it - she has way too much power. Also I think that because the current KS governor is a pretty good conservative (Sam Brownback).
A police state perhaps but just think about the life in the police state with it’s ball games, it’s casino’s, it’s rock concerts, etc. and don’t forget about the 50% who can live off the earnings of others.It is a blast of a police state for many who seem to care less about having an exceptional society as to heritage and future.
Damn straight, Col. Lakin would get some respect here in N. Alabama. People are patriots here, and we have ties to military, space, and high tech and have first rate hospitals and medical facilities.
And TX will also welcome him. Obozo is not popular here either. (Some of my ancestors were burned out of AL during reconstruction for resisting)
Two very real victims of Obama. One was murdered and the other jailed.
“You got a problem with Terry Lakens position on the Obama?”
He has to take a cheap shot at Lakin. Lakin embodies everything he isn’t. Honorable and courageous.
His little ego can’t handle it and so he has to pipe up.
What is really disheartening is how many people who wrote in slammed Lakin and lauded the decision.
It's not Sebelius country. She's the daughter of a former Ohio governor, and is certainly not a typical Kansan. We were glad when she left.
PS: Laksin did not take the best course of action re the order to deploy.
He was vindicated by the Kenyan Coward who disobeyed a subpoena and who refused to show either of the alleged certified copies of his long-form birth certificate at the Georgia ballot hearing.
Now everyone is out of a doctor. Nobody won.
Technically, the Kenyan coward won. Everyone else lost.
Among biggest concerns of founders was civil war between states and foreign influence. They designed the constitution to keep a balance of power and respect for states, and keep foreign influence out.
We now have the foreign influence from Obunga. He grew up in Indonesia, learning of Communism and Islam. It is the only thing that makes sense to him, and the constitution is a violation of his beliefs.
The world at large fully expected the American experiment to fail. So many states with varied interests, as large as Europe and bound as one, had failed numerous times in the past on similar scales. The constitution had to be a masterpiece to succeed. I believe that Monroe said the people gave it life. If we look at the ratification of the constitution, we then know that the founders were a million people. It will take millions to put it to death. Mohammad Obunga is just their agent of destruction.
As Mohammad Obunga drives us toward bankruptcy and actively shreds the constitution, we may see states take sides and line up. The people give the constitution the death sentence when they vote for a communist agitator, so they are not innocent. Collapse of dollar may be the eventual event that dissolves the union, but the catalyst is brazen disrespect for the constitution that formed it. We had founders and they live in beloved infamy for what they have created. Their words scribed on papers warn us that this civil creation may end. A thousand years from now, people may lay eyes on their statues and lament the end of freedom born of their wisdom, and curse the fools and bastards alike that put Mohammad Obunga's boot on it's throat.
“If tyranny and oppression come to this land it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. James Madison
Here are, two hundred years later, with an Islamic president bombing other Islamic countries without the peoples consent through their congress, yet constitutionally obligated for such consent.
What happened to Lakin was entirely predictable from the moment he made his intentions known. He should've listened to his friends and family as they tried to get him to rethink his actions instead of the conspiracy pimps standing on the sidelines cheering him on.
Yes, some of us serving our country don't look to fondly at those who go AWOL forcing others to deploy in their place.
Speaking of friends, doesn't Lakin have any who can land him a job, particularly those "friends" who stood on the sidelines, cheering him on as he threw away his career?
And how exactly are you serving our country with ignorant statements such as these? Chow hall with a spoon? Latrines with a scrubby brush? Trash detail on the outskirts of the main gate?
Imagine living in 1860, and a friend tells you that half a million will die in a civil war in the next five years. How absurd a thought that would have been.
We see political swing in elections, and constitutional maneuvers. Its all normal to us.
But presidents raised in foreign lands refusing to bare documents, war waged without consent, strip searches at airports. Billions of dollars borrowed by the minute and then squandered even faster on foreign countries. We are witnessing the willful destruction of a nation. We can no longer pretend otherwise. The first casualty and symptom of destruction is the national currency and credit.
Had you ever served, you'd know that performing any of these three tasks is far more honorable than deserting the men who are counting on you.
I certainly would not exonerate those who cheered him on, or even himself, for coming to that decision. But the consequences far outweigh his actions. His political stand, in violation of his military orders, has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with his established skill as a surgeon, or ability to treat and care for patients. Maybe you and I have just never taken a costly principled position, however faulty our thinking.
You sound like you are enlisted, if you are serving your country at all.
Clearly you do not understand the Officer’s Oath, and you do not understand this case, nor have been following it enough to understand the details.
Since you weren't even posting on this forum during the Lakin trial, feel free to click on my in forum link at my profile page. You'll see I posted extensively on Lakin and predicted with 100% accuracy exactly how this case would end from the moment Lakin made his intentions known. Had you ever served (which clearly you haven't) you'd have been able to accurately predict this outcome as well.
The only thing I failed to predict was Lakin pleading guilty and begging the court for leniency.
Clearly you do not understand the Officers Oath, and you do not understand this case, nor have been following it enough to understand the details.”
“You sound like you are enlisted...”
And how, pray tell, are we ignorant peasants who do the vast majority of the bleeding for our country supposed to sound? Do we use “ain't” and “aw, shucks” and scratch our privates as we chew on a blade of grass while pulling up our ill-fitting, unstylish trousers?
As an enlisted person in my youth, who fought for his country, has permanent injuries to show for it, and took over directing an action from dead officers, all I can say is cram it where the sun don't shine.
Why don't you tend to worshiping your little Vattel idol and drop any pretense that someone who would utter the ignorant sentence cited above has any insight into anything to do with either honor or the military?
I understand where you are coming from. You and your friend are more than welcome enough to beat your chests around until they bleed, or ride the honor and pride bandwagon until the wheels fall off. You apparently have a chip on your shoulder with regards to your superiors, both past and present, this much is certain.
Parking your ego aside, you may feel obliged to re-read what I stated so that you understand my legal argument. Officers and enlisted abide by different oaths. Officers have the ability to question orders, especially by those who have not proven themselves legally authorized to command. This is not the case for enlisted personnel, and some do not know they are unique.
Surely one in the service such as yourself should understand these facts, would you say?
Listen pal, you're going to find yourself treading on awfully thin ice around here with these kinds of comments. On Free Republic, we stand up for our men and women serving honorably in uniform regardless of what we think of the current Commander in Chief. Since you clearly need some schooling on the Lakin case, I'd suggest going back a couple of years, long before you arrived, to the earliest threads in April 2010. You'll see that T_O_C, myself and every other former and current active duty FReeper who opined on this case predicted with great accuracy exactly what the outcome would be --a task as difficult as predicting the sun would rise in the east. The only people predicting success in the Lakin case were those who had never served. They were wrong. And if you ask Mr. Lakin today, he'd likely tell you that listening to these fools was the greatest mistake he ever made.
While you are perusing these old threads, learning something useful, please take the time to reflect on some of (former USN enlisted) Jim Robinson's comments after some of your fellow birthers decided to use Lakin's justly-earned dismissal as a forum to bash the military. You might learn something about Free Republic that would be of great benefit to your future posting privileges.
Your tone was clearly and deliberately patronizing to enlisted personnel, who are not only brave, selfless and dedicated, but who understand quite well the obligations incumbent upon all members of the armed forces. Officers worthy of their position understand that.
As for your statement about questioning those who have not proved themselves legally authorized to command, Lakin’s particular interpretation of that was judged by his fellow military officers. They found it wanting,
Your idle threats do not bode well for your pride and honor, nor do you know what rank I retain.
You have perceived my comments to be negative. I asked you a simple question because your response was that of a naive recruit fresh out of high school.
Honor is not earned through service. Service to the country never makes one a hero. Honor is earned through actions of courage, dilligence, humanity, and humility. I know full well the chain of command all the way up to the Joint Chiefs. I understand that chest beating is not a trait of those with true valor.
Lakin was no slouch. Was he naive? Perhaps. He paid for that...gracefully I might add. Yet, he deserved more than tarnish other service personnel bode on him. His actions of meritorious service throughout his career should be considered above all. The court knew full well the intent of his actions, regardless of faulty counsel. Failing to report to duty is usually initiated by someone who made a poor decision joining the service without careful consideration. Or he is a traitor who serves the enemy. Lakin is neither. The MT also knew full well Lakin received poor counsel. MT's are there to punish those of crimes against the nation, not punish those who question the authority of a usurping commander in chief.
Our servicemen are supposed to support each other, not feed each other to the wolves. Belittling those who rightfully question authority should never be punished as "being one without valor". Lakin paid for his error in protocol, never for honoring his oath nor his care for the nation.
It is truly unfortunate we have so many such as yourself who do not understand the significance of Lakin's quest. You are on board with Malihi and countless others, hiding behind the shield of "honor and pride" in your nation when you know full well the commander in chief is a dual citizen. And since you are active duty or have served, you should know that no soldier is allowed that privilege.
Your tone was clearly and deliberately patronizing to enlisted personnel
My tone was that of him acting like one who was dropped off the bus from Des Moine in Fort Hood who has no idea of what the Oath of a Military Officer means.
I respect all service personnel who show dedication to the United States Consitution above all others. I show no respect to active duty personnel who continue to belittle their fellow soldiers for trying to uphold the Constitution, no matter how foolish, naive, or crazy they may think him to be.
