Obama Surgeon General Pick Anti-2nd Amendment Radical
news.investors.com ^ | 3/7/2014 | Editors

Posted on 03/08/2014 7:25:19 AM PST by rktman

Second Amendment: The administration's choice to be the nation's doctor in chief views gun ownership as a public health issue and not a constitutional right, and wants doctors to query patients about guns in their home.... ....gun-grabbing advocate Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy, Obama's nominee to be U.S. Surgeon General.

Murthy is the 36-year-old president and co-founder of the anti-gun group Doctors for America, which advocates ObamaCare and gun control laws.

His group, which has been dubbed "Docs vs. Glocks," has pushed Congress to ban "assault" weapons and "high-capacity" magazines.

Heads up folks. Contact your congress critters and tell them to oppose confirmation of this young twit. At 36, he ain't old enough to know what's right or wrong (him) and he could be in that position for a while.

Nationalized health care. I wonder if the Surgeon General is now one of the most powerful people in the country.

“Nationalized health care. I wonder if the Surgeon General is now one of the most powerful people in the country.”

I think it’s a ceremonial office. The ACA gives all power for writing the rubber-meets-the road rules to the Secretary of Health.

Whew!
Am I glad we're a nation of laws and a constitution, and not of "feelings" and "views".

Oh.... wait...

Graduated med school in 2003, completed residency in 2006. By nominating him, the president is again sticking a thumb in the eye of nearly every physician in the country by insinuating years of experience and medical practice arent worth nearly as much as the correct ideology and a harvard degree.

More experienced than his would-be boss for the position, but by no means qualified or sufficiently experienced to lead a branch of the uniformed services or manage public health policy for the nation.

Ha! Not really. Just totally sick & tired of this invasion and a gutless congress that does nothing to stop it.

Yup. Already fired off my “feeling” to my 2 senators. One kinda good, the other the epitome of evil and the majority leader. I also fired one off to the majority leader slapping him around in regards to his constant attacks on the Koch brothers. Not that hairy reid-iculous gives a crap what his constituents think. But at least you gotta call him on stuff even if it doesn’t do much good. Hmmmmm. Is that a knock at my door?

Even ignoring the fact that we are supposed to be a constitutional republic and not a monarchy, this nominee is totally unqualified for the job if he bases policy on his feelings about scary guns instead of on science. Exactly how many physicians, when treating a gunshot victim, ask “so, did the weapon used have a pistol grip, a folding or telescoping stock, a flash suppressor or threaded barrel, a bayonet mount, or a muzzle-mounted grenade launcher?” Those “Assault Weapon” features are as irrelevant medically as they are tactically, and this fraud’s interest in them proves that he has no interest in either science or the Constitution.

That is the way things are now, My Friend. And not only that, things are going to get worse, much worse before they get better, if they get better. In the future, as the slaves increase their demands that the Government take away their personal responsibilities and freedom in order to make them feel secure and take care of them, jobs will only be awarded on the basis of one’s political beliefs, one’s sexual “orientation”, one’s gender, and one’s race. In other words to Socialists, homosexual and other degenerates, Blacks, and women. As far as the others go, tough shit. One’s ability to do or not to do said job is immaterial. The United States of America will descend into such a state of confusion and deficiency that it will make the most backward Country in Africa seem to be a first rate Nation by comparison.

LOL!(kinda). With all the new coding(150,00 new codes?) being implemented, you better have all the details in order to be treated. Or at least a video of the event so that all the “necessary” information can be ascertained. You know, make, model, date of maufacture, place of manufacture, color of item, accesories(sp)attached ........... You get the idea.

A while back I did the same search. Cannot find if he's a citizen. Wouldn't surprise me if Obama appointed a furriner'.

I went to the doctor the other day (Group Health Cooperative, Seattle) and was given a form to fill out concerning various medical issues - drinking and smoking habits, recreational drug use, diet, evidence of depression, etc. One question jumped out, and it was something like, “Do you or your family or close friends own guns, and if so, are they stored and maintained safely?” I answered “Don’t know,” and I think I had to write that in, I don’t think it was a given option.”

Why is every one of this clown’s appointees controversial? It is becoming apparent that Obama is deliberately picking people he knows are objectionable to conservatives. Why can’t he pick one, just one, who is acceptable to both sides? Look back! Every person he has nominated to office, without exception, is tainted in some way.

Why should he? Anyway, don't worry--I'm sure the next Republican president will nominate people who are very centrist and agreeable to the left.

The U.S. Surgeon General is nominated by the President of the United States and confirmed by a majority vote of the Senate.
And it is not a cabinet level position.

...a folding or telescoping stock, a flash suppressor or threaded barrel, a bayonet mount, or a muzzle-mounted grenade launcher...

Well, those are the features of almost none of the firearms used in crimes.

But if those features are made illegal, then the mere possession of that firearm will be a crime, which means that feature was used in committing a crime, which means "assault weapon" crime will increase (possession), which will show up as a spike in the statistics, justifying another crackdown...

I was going to be sarcastic, but we'll see after whatever comes to pass in CT. God Bless all who refused to register.

Don't forget the other half of the equation: jury nullification. We have to educate conservatives on the importance of that power. If any decent person is called for jury duty in a gun rights case, it's important to get on that jury by being truthful but not helpful (think Bill Clinton under oath) and then to vote 'Not Guilty' regardless of the letter of the law. An unjust law is no law, and it's the jury's job to ignore such laws no matter what the judge or an unconstitutional written law may say.
