DOES MICHIGAN BELIEVE ITS DOCTORS ARE BIGOTS, RACISTS, OR HOMOPHOBES?

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) must believe that there is a significant bias problem among licensed physicians, backed by substantial empirical evidence of complaints and instances of wrongdoing.

Or, are they just a group of virtue-signaling fools bowing to the fashionable science, I should say non-science, or more aptly, nonsense, of the day? 

I posit that the overwhelming majority of physicians are professional and patient-centric, regardless of the patient’s class identity, including race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity ), national origin, age,  disability, and genetic information.

To the extent race and sex play a part in the interaction, it is usually to limit the range of potential diagnoses and treatment protocols.

The Michigan Public Health Code and board administrative rules requires every medical doctor to complete, during the 3-year period prior to the date of application for renewal of the license, at least 150 hours of continuing education in courses or programs approved by the Board of Medicine (Board). Pursuant to this requirement, the board has promulgated rules to establish specific criteria for the board’s approval of continuing medical education courses and programs.

Therefore, I find the following additional mandatory training insulting and unproductive…

MSMS
New Implicit Bias Training Requirement

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) will require implicit bias training for physicians (and other health care professionals), effective June 1, 2022. The requirements apply to both new applicants as well as those renewing their existing licenses or registrations.

An applicant for license renewal shall have completed a minimum of 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the applicant’s license or registration cycle. An applicant for new licensure, both limited and medical, shall have completed a minimum of 2 hours of implicit bias training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.

Physicians will need to report implicit bias credit when they renew their license. Those who renewed in January 2022, needed no training. Physicians who renew in 2023, will need to report 1 hour. Physicians who renew in 2024, will need to report 2 hours. Physicians who renew in 2025, will need to report the full 3 hours. Then after, every 3-year renewal cycle will need to report 3 hours. Training that was taken prior to June 1, 2021, and within the license cycle that is up for renewal, qualifies toward the requirement for renewals. The rule also allows new applicants for licensure or registration to complete the training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.

Please note, the implicit bias training for licensure has additional requirements and differs from the other mandated CME areas. Training must include strategies to reduce disparities in access to and delivery of health care services and the administration of pre- and post-test implicit bias assessments. Acceptable modalities of training are a teleconference or webinar that permits live synchronous interaction, a live presentation or an interactive online instruction. Solely recorded or archived content is not allowable, a live component is required.

Training content must include, but is not limited to, 1 or more of the following topics: 

  • Information on implicit bias, equitable access to health care, serving a diverse population, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and cultural sensitivity. 
  • Strategies to remedy the negative impact of implicit bias by recognizing and understanding how it impacts perception, judgment, and actions that may result in inequitable decision making, failure to effectively communicate, and result in barriers and disparities in the access to and delivery of health care services. 
  • The historical basis and present consequences of implicit biases based on an individual’s characteristics. 
  • Discussion of current research on implicit bias in the access to and delivery of health care services.

Bottom line…

Perhaps LARA should rethink the implicit bias coursework and retool the program to deal with mentally disturbed or combative patients in a clinical setting.

And, perhaps the Board should be required to read the chapter on gender dysphoria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition.

DSM Gender Dysphoria: Clinical Symptoms And Diagnosis

Gender Dysphoria is a mental health condition in which an individual experiences distress due to the presence of at least two of the following symptoms:

  • Disparity between sex and gender identity. Biological sex and gender are two different constructs. People with Gender Dysphoria might feel at odds with their biological sex and their perceived gender or may feel primarily at odds with their perceived gender and identify as a gender without a specific assigned biological sex.
  • A strong urge or desire to “get rid of” biological sex characteristics. In this symptom, people with Gender Dysphoria may continually struggle to see their bodies and experience the difficulties associated with dressing for sex they do not feel is theirs. Feelings of repulsion, fear, or shame often accompany this symptom.
  • A strong urge or desire to possess the biological sex characteristics of the opposite sex. For some, Gender Dysphoria will catalyze a desire to possess the sex characteristics of the opposite sex. For instance, a biological female might not feel entirely at odds with the presence of breasts but may feel a continual longing to possess one or more of the sex organs associated with the male sex.
  • A need or desire to be seen as treated as a specific preferred gender. Again, because sex and gender are two different things, some people with Gender Dysphoria will focus more on their gender than their sex.
  • An ongoing suspicion that you behave as though you are already your preferred gender, despite sex characteristics. For some people with Gender Dysphoria, the experience of being at odds with perceived gender is due to feeling as though their behavior, likes, and thought processes are already congruent with their preferred gender.

It is important to note that not all of these symptoms will be present in someone with a diagnosis of Gender Dysphoria; instead, at least two of them must be present for six months or longer and cause significant distress for a diagnosis to be considered. Children can be evaluated for these symptoms, though they may not be able to use the same language an adult might describe their symptoms.

It is time that individuals recognize that progressive communist democrats are using identity characteristics to divide our nation into classes that can be designated as victims and manipulated in the pursuit of political power. The original Marxist struggle between the proletariat (wage earners/workers) and the bourgeoisie (middle or upper middle class) has been translated into a battle between the races and sexes – to foment a regime-changing revolution.

To allow our elites and government leaders to advance this toxic agenda of division is both un-American and dangerous to our representative democracy.

We are so screwed.

HOLD YOUR NOSE IF YOU MUST, BUT VOTE REPUBLICAN

Gop-nose

I do not care who the GOP candidate opposes in the 2022 midterms; the GOP candidate has my support!

I will support and vote for the GOP candidate because to continue the progressive communist democrat reign of terror is to place our nation and our freedom in jeopardy.

So hold your nose if you must, but vote Republican.

As for the RINOs, squishes, and establishment types – we can pressure them after we win the House and Senate. We can change their committees, their office space, and most of all, the feckless leadership! But we must first win!

Pick any issue, and you will see how badly the progressive communist democrats have perverted commonsense long-standing norms and traditions.

election integrity

inflation and government budgetary excesses

energy independence

open borders and unchecked immigration

a woke, weakened military and overly complex weaponry that is not mission ready

crime and the decline in law enforcement, and the lack of judicial integrity

declining healthcare and clerical interference in the doctor-patient relationship

the collapse of our educational system, where indoctrination over education is the norm

political corruption and professional politicians who place their interests over those of the nation

rampant and malignant environmentalism

homelessness and welfare reform

personal freedoms, particularly speech and religious freedom

state’s rights

a feckless Congress allowing a dangerous move to a World War

the rise of un-American, anti-white, anti-Semitic racists in our institutions

You may debate the order and importance of each item, but don’t get bogged down in the weeds and lose sight of the bigger picture -- America’s continued sovereignty and freedoms. Now is not the time to debate the particulars; elect the GOP candidates that can advance our cause.

Bottom line…

The Republicans may not have all of the answers or be able to fix things in a single two-year cycle, but they are not the proximate cause of ALL of the problems we are facing as a nation! The progressive communist democrats continue to promote division over unity -- and are the true racists in charge of the system. They are the man!

Vote Republican, or we are screwed.

VOTE 2022: NOT ONE DAMN DIME FOR EDUCATION

EDU-1

As much as you may have liked your individual teachers, there is little doubt that our unionized K-12 educational system has failed our children.

(1) Education is controlled by powerful unions and special interests that serve themselves rather than the children they purport to serve. In reality, they serve themselves, not students.

These are the very unions that have damaged children with their school shutdowns and mask mandates during the pandemic. Paying teachers for little or no work.

These unions resist testing teacher competency and subject-matter knowledge. They treat parents, especially engaged parents, as the enemy and attempt to subvert parental rights.

These are the unions pushing Critical Race theory that teaches white students they are the oppressors and others that they are the victims of white supremacy.

These are the unions sexualizing young children and convincing confused children to act on impulses – hiding chemical and surgical interventions from parents. Creating mental illness out of sexual confusion.

Demanding that teachers teach to the lowest common denominator rather than encouraging the best and brightest.

These are the miscreants creating unsafe schools with passes for violent behaviors and overlooking minority behavior issues such as bullying peers who get good grades..

The unions believe they own the students and any attached funding. They abhor competition and the thought of school choice makes them crazy.

(2)  The hyper-partisan federal Department of Education uses your tax dollars to states and local school boards to “voluntarily” adopt their mandates or lose federal funding.

(3)  Every year, schools turn out another crop off ill-prepared functional illiterates who have less basic education than students possessed one hundred years ago. Any tests that show that our educational system is failing are deemed to be racist and scores are lowered to prevent an uprising among concerned parents.

(4)  The schools continue to dilute resources with a flood of illegal aliens, many illiterate, language deficient, and lacking in parental resources – some parents showing disrespect for education itself.

(5)  Most increases in educational funding flow to capital projects and personnel costs. The true beneficiaries are the unions, administrators, teachers, and those politically-connected vendors who supply goods and services to school systems.

(6)  Teacher pay has been perverted with useless degrees which are never used. Paying a teacher with a master’s degree to teach third-grade is costly and unproductive.

Bottom line…

The progressive communist democrats have corrupted the entire system, and today’s children are indoctrinated and not educated. They cannot compete in their local environment, let alone on national and global scales.

What lessons from your K-12 education can you apply to your career or life?

At least when I went to school, I learned how to read, write, compute, research, and build things. Along with academics in junior high, I had fun electives: agriculture, electric show, wood shop, metal shop, drafting, and print shop. And I was the beneficiary of my girlfriend’s cupcakes from her home economics class.

We need to starve the beast until it is weak enough to listen to its master: “We the People,” instead of the elites who believe they are educationally superior to parents and have the moral authority to dictate how children should live their lives.

NOT A DAMN DIME UNTIL THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS EMBRACE SCHOOL CHOICE AND EDUCATIONAL REFORM.

We are so screwed.

IS THE DANCHENKO TRIAL KABUKI THEATER?

Jd-clouseau

Kabuki theater?

Will the John Durham investigation of the most pervasive and damaging political interference in a presidential campaign and subsequent presidency turn out to be another meaningless Mueller-style whitewash of significant criminal wrongdoing on the part of Hillary Clinton and agencies of the United States government?

From the Durham prosecution team’s opening statement…

The evidence in this trial will show that the Steele dossier would cause the FBI to engage in troubling conduct that would ultimately result in the extended surveillance of the United States citizens.

This statement, in and of itself, is deeply troubling.

One, because the Steele dossier was known to be a partisan politically-generated document whose allegations could not be directly corroborated; two, because it was the duty of the FBI to vet the source and the allegations before taking action; three, because it did not cause the FBI to engage in troubling conduct – it was all on them; four, because the conduct went past troubling to grossly criminal behavior and the persecution of American citizens without due process; and five, the misuse of government resources and lying to a secret Court designed to protect the civil rights of individual citizens all constitute criminal action that demands severe punishment.

Bottom line…

I now have severe doubts that Durham’s investigation will adequately address the complicity of private and public individuals interfering with a presidential election and, subsequently, interfering with the activities of the Office of the President of the United States.

As for those Inspectors General who are running around – they have no subpoena power and cannot convene a grand jury, they cannot go beyond the bounds of their department to deal with conspiracies to commit crimes, they cannot take action against employees who have retired or quit, and they can only make prosecution recommendations to the Department of Justice, which is presently as corrupt as the FBI.

From what I have seen, we are screwed, as the cover-up may have succeeded.

2022 CALIFORNIA PROPOSITIONS

Ivoted

Statewide California propositions are usually political smoke and mirrors…

Propositions in California are often deceptively titled and portray a positive voter-friendly description, while the gotchas and loopholes are hidden in the dense text of the actual proposition. The propositions are strictly controlled by the progressive communist democrats in this one-party state.

Therefore, my policy is to examine each of the propositions to look at the premise as well as the supporters. Of course, in the final analysis, it is the taxpayer who will be screwed – either by higher taxes or upcharges to goods and services passed along to consumers by those organizations being taxed.

Here are my choices -- not one damn dime!

Prop-block-1 Prop-4
My blog, my opinion...

Proposition 1 is little more that an unrestrictive abortion initiative that allows abortions up until the time of birth -- killing a viable child in the birth canal even if the baby is healthy and the mother’s health is not threatened or worse. This is infanticide. Current California law already guarantees a woman’s right to choose, making this extreme and costly proposal unnecessary.

Propositions 26 and 27 are gambling initiatives that do little or nothing for California citizens. As we have seen with the Lotto, educational institutions reduce their budgets by the monies received or spend the fungible dollars for capital projects, ongoing personnel costs, and their underfunded pension funds. These propositions are funded by out-of-state gambling corporations to legalize a massive expansion of online and mobile sports gambling.

Proposition 28 money does not flow to the classrooms, it benefits administrators and teachers.

Proposition 29 sounds great until you realize it is a push by the progressive communist democrat SEIU (Service Employees International Union) to unionize clinic workers.

Proposition 30 is another useless "millionaire's" tax for climate change and green energy. It does not provide the forest management needed to curtail wildfires, nor does it demand utilities move dangerous high-tension lines underground. This is why the wealthy are moving out of California, relocating companies, and avoiding taxes with foreign corporations in tax-free domiciles like Nevada, Texas, Florida, etc.

Proposition 31 is a sham to further regulate a now-legal product. Minors under 21 are already excluded from purchasing tobacco products. This is a crime-inducing proposition that will support further black market activities. 

Bottom line…

It’s your money, your life, and your future – choose wisely.

As with all things political, we are so screwed.

THE TROUBLE WITH TRUMP AND TRIFLES

Trump-desantis

As the 2022 election grows closer, several readers have asked me my opinion on 2024...

I do not care who the GOP candidate may be in 2024 -- as long as they can win. I will support and vote for the GOP candidate because to continue the progressive communist democrat reign of terror is to place our nation and our freedom in jeopardy.

The primary fight appears to be between former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. And on a smaller scale, a battle between the establishment RINOs, Bushies, and Neo-cons, and the constitutional conservatives within the party.

At this point, I would suggest that DeSantis is the front-runner as an aging Trump concentrates on the 2020 election and the Democrat cheating and machinations that led to his apparent loss. I am not interested in relitigating the various insults to Trump’s ego. As we have seen, there is no going back, only forward as we fight for election integrity.

DeSantis is doing a great job in responding to hurricane Ian -- rebuilding bridges in days, putting thousands of electrical workers and repair vehicles into the field, and moving supplies to where they are needed.

In the background, it appears that the Karl Rove establishment types continue to attack Trump and join the progressive communist democrats in canceling Trump and DeSantis.

The media is doing what the media will do. The self-proclaimed conservative commentators Hannity, Levin, Bongino, and Shapiro all lack the political insight, perspective, and worldview of the late Rush Limbaugh, who I miss terribly. They are down the middle as they stroke Trump and fete DeSantis.

My major issues...

  • election integrity
  • inflation and government budgetary excesses
  • energy independence
  • open borders and unchecked immigration
  • a woke, weakened military and overly complex weaponry that is not mission ready
  • crime and the decline in law enforcement, and the lack of judicial integrity
  • declining healthcare and clerical interference in the doctor-patient relationship
  • the collapse of our educational system, where indoctrination over education is the norm
  • political corruption and professional politicians who place their interests over those of the nation
  • rampant and malignant environmentalism
  • homelessness and welfare reform
  • personal freedoms, particularly speech and religious freedom
  • state’s rights
  • a feckless Congress allowing a dangerous move to a World War
  • the rise of un-American, anti-white, anti-Semitic racists in our institutions

You may debate the order and importance of each item, but don’t get bogged down in the weeds and lose sight of the bigger picture -- America’s continued sovereignty and freedoms. Now is not the time to debate the particulars, only the candidates that can advance our cause.

The 2020 election...

I don’t live in the past, and neither should you. As for the retribution of John Durham that media pundits seemingly promised us, it looks like the party is winding down, and the carbonated fizz is running flat. We must look forward.

Rush-1

As a constitutional conservative, the only media voice I can trust is the one in my head – primarily conditioned by Rush’s legacy and Andrew Breitbart’s wisdom.

Bottom line...

I am voting to preserve my freedom, not hand Trump an ego-soothing moral victory for the historical record.

We are so screwed if we do not choose well.

PISS ON PAYPAL FOR ATTEMPTING TO CURB FREE SPEECH

PoppWe can understand why payment processor PayPal would reject vendors selling illegal merchandise, using fraudulent advertising, or promoting direct action violence, but to threaten to fine PayPal users over the ill-defined term “misinformation is outrageous.” To do so without easily challengeable recourse is abominable.

Long-time readers know that I hate unilateral, “take it or leave it” terms of service agreements that empower the company to use your content and otherwise abuse you while disadvantaging the user from seeking legal recourse against the company for culpable negligence, including fraud.

The updated PayPal Acceptable Use Policy scheduled to become effective November 3, 2022, included an expansion of “prohibited activities,” which includes the restrictions on “ending, posting, or publication of messages, content, or materials that meet certain criteria.”

PAYPAL-1

With a financial penalty…

Violation of this Acceptable Use Policy constitutes a violation of the PayPal User Agreement and may subject you to damages, including liquidated damages of $2,500.00 U.S. dollars per violation, which may be debited directly from your PayPal account(s) as outlined in the User Agreement (see “Restricted Activities and Holds” section of the PayPal User Agreement).

After significant pushback from vendors who use PayPal, the company claimed they didn’t mean it; it was all a mistake.

A spokesman for the company stated: “An AUP notice recently went out in error that included incorrect information. PayPal is not fining people for misinformation and this language was never intended to be inserted in our policy… We’re sorry for the confusion this has caused.”

I call bullshit!

OCS: No, it wasn’t an error – it was a demonstration of virtue signaling progressive communist democrat ideology that demands the suppression of any speech not approved by the regime – including, but not limited, to challenges to news events, science, medicine, or conservative ideology. Considering the idea originator had to pass legal, create the content, pass an editor, proofreader, and a supervisor who could execute the announcement – this was no error, and everybody involved seemed to agree with the message or kept silent.

Bottom line…

How can a commercial company claim to be a legitimate arbiter of true and correct information when equally educated, credentialed, and experienced individuals can honestly differ on assumptions, findings, and outcomes in science, medicine, and even politics? We have all seen ludicrous fact checks that affirm the information while flagging it for “lacking context.”

If you are a vendor relying on a single social media platform, payment processor, or other single point of failure, it is time to diversify using other providers. Prevent any cash balances from building up in accounts or using a single account for multiple streams of income.

It appears we are facing a constitutional crisis where government entities and political parties are turning to commercial vendors to implement ideologically-driven public policies in circumvention on protections of your constitutional rights. Even worse, we are seeing the Department of Justice, the FBI, and other agencies give a pass to evildoers.

We are so screwed.

Vaccine Mandate Notice

Pursuant to City of Los Angeles Ordinance No. 187219, beginning Monday, November 8, 2021, PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION or PROOF OF NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST (conducted within the last 72 hours) will be required to enter this City building and visit the Office of Finance’s Public Counter in person. This applies to people that appear to be 18 years of age or older.

Customers that visit the public counter (indoor) will need to do the following prior to being allowed inside:

1) Show proof of full vaccination and photo identification (Driver’s license; Government-issued identification card; School or work identification; or Passport

2) Show proof of a negative COVID-19 test (from a healthcare provider) taken within the last 72 hours

3) Reasonable accommodation for customers due to a medical condition, restriction, or a sincerely held religious belief exemption.

Something stinks, and it appears to be the progressive communist democrats who shout voter suppression when anyone tries to prevent election fraud.

How much time is needed to rig the election by manipulating ballots and vote tallies?

The progressive democrats demand that you have up to 30 days to vote, from October 10, 2022, when the ballots are mailed to the official election day on November 8, 2022. And, of course, there are allowances for mailed ballots with acceptable postmarks that are received late (ignore that unionized postal employees whose unions predominantly support the Democrats can apply postmarks and route the mail)  and those originating from military installations abroad—sufficient time to rig the election and manipulate vote counts.

Bottom line…

Remember, the value of proper voter identification is not only to help prevent election fraud but also to protect the value of the vote for everyone who legally casts a ballot.

Screaming voter suppression is not a matter of hypocrisy; it’s about hierarchy – when the progressive communist democrats visibly demonstrate their power to dictate your behavior.

How to vote is easy, who to vote for is the problem. My rule is simple, vote for the candidate who exhibits commonsense and competence over communism and Marxist-based color politics

We are so screwed.
