Do the Liberals really think we need a revolution?
Dr. Rosen: The research by Professor Paul Kengor into how President Obama got elected is rather worrisome. The inside story is that we would have a revolution is very hard to fathom. Where would be the battle line? Who would be the enemy? The two coasts or the vast central? The fact that this subterfuge was developing over the entire 20th century and that Reagan was just a minimal blip is also essentially unbelievable.
Dr. Edwards: I believe that Professor Kengor was basically researching the seriousness of the influence of the left on our country. To me it is unbelievable that something so obvious is so frequently denied by what I thought were intelligent folks.
Dr. Milton: Most of us realized that President Obama surrounded himself with people that did not appreciate the great country that we had. The fact that there were so many avowedly Marxists involved both in his election and in his administration, is what is truly worrisome.
Dr. Ruth: I think that most of us realized much of this. But the extent of the involvement of Marxists was a revelation to me. I just thought of them as the left which we’ve had in this country forever. But for the left to think there will be revolution in this country is beyond belief.
Dr. Yancy: I remember fellow physicians saying that Obama was a communist. I just thought he was a little beyond left, but not truly revolutionary.
Dr. Sam: I never did trust the socialistic left. I really thought they were the face of socialism in this country. I never picked up on the little inuendoes that the far right kept mentioning.
Dr. Dave: John Brennan (who was sworn in as CIA director on a draft of the US Constitution, without the Bill of Rights, instead of a Bible) said that while he had voted Communist, he wasn’t an official member of the Communist Party – and was relieved that he had been accepted into the CIA.
Dr. Sam: Of course he was relieved. After his CIA appointment, the club that is supposed to make sure there are no communist threat, would not be a threat to one of its own.
Dr. Kaleb: Isn’t that a safe harbor for a spy to live in?
Dr. Joseph: Ret My having lunch here in the Doctor’s Lounge is disturbing my sleep. Where have I been all my life?
Dr. Milton: I think that most of us have been so busy and insulated by Medical School, internship, and residency, that we thought the outside world was reasonably stable.
Dr. Sam: Even though I belong to the AAPS, a group of conservative physicians, I never was very vocal about this. Many physicians are hostile to that group and so that makes us less verbose in the public arena.
Dr. Dave: I’m looking forward to our annual meeting next week where we can speak freely and know the physician next to you is of the same persuasion.
Dr. Yancy: I feel the same way. I was intimidated after I spoke freely here in the staff lounge and the person I thought was of the same mind as we are, became very hostile to me.
Dr. Rosen: That’s why I periodically check the medical society’s roster. It’s a very socialistic club and their advocacy is not to our benefit.
Dr. Edwards: That’s one of the ironies in medicine. We frequently choose administrators that are advocating for government medicine which is not in our interest.
Dr. Rosen: When I was an editor for a 4-year period after the previous editor had served a 10-year period, I was told that the board felt that they needed a fresh voice as editor. I gave no resistance since I did not want to work in a hostile environment. It was apparent to me that my conservative bent was not appreciated by the leadership. Since the messenger has never spoken to me since and avoided me afterwards, was important information and clarified who was controlling the society. It’s tragic that physicians don’t understand political ramifications in our professional organizations.
