Memorial Day Thoughts

USS Independence CV-62. I was aboard 1989 – 1991.

On this Memorial Day, I am reminded of my four shipmates who died during the time I served aboard the USS Independence. I was present when one of them took his last breath. They were fulfilling their oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They made the ultimate sacrifice. It was their choice to serve, it wasn’t their choice to die. But, they knew it was a possibility.

On this particular Memorial Day, with the current infringements on our Constitutional Rights, I am compelled to be ever more vigilant (and vocal in my advocacy for our Freedom) in light of why those men died. I owe it to them.

I’m still a dentist! Failed implant crown.

Yes.  I’m still a dentist.  I just need patients to come back!

Last week, a patient was referred to me by a periodontist.  Her implant crown had come off, and she was referred to the periodontist by her dentist up north.  By the patient’s recollection, the implant crown was placed about 1-1/2 years ago.

Clinically, it looked like what you see below.  Continue reading

Why I Refuse to Comply

Many times, I’ve been asked why I refuse to comply with the new rules or indulge the “new ABnormal.”  I’ve been called every name “in the book.”  Someone told me she hopes I get sick and “a tube is jammed down my sorry throat.”  Others have wished me dead.

“In a time of universal deceit — telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – often attributed to George Orwell, but never confirmed.

Transcript for the video below the jump:

Dentists are the Paragons of Infection Control!

A Chicago area restaurant donated meals for the staff at Glenbrook Hospital.  This is apparently the “COVID Team.”  They wanted to express their thanks and took this photo in the break room, where they eat.  This was posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page.  It has since been taken down.

The original photo was annotated, as you see below, to point out the massive violations of protocol.  PPE should not be worn into the break room, and it certainly shouldn’t be worn while eating. 

But, DENTISTS got shut down.

Proof that the shutdowns are not about safety or public health.

A Texas State Dental Board meeting transcript was recently revealed, and it’s not good.  The shutdown of dental offices has NOTHING to do with patient welfare.  It’s about CONTROL.

Here’s a link to the article with the transcript:  https://www.tdmr.org/dentist-dental-board-members-say-that-patients-should-just-deal-with-broken-teeth-and-severe-pain/

Enough with the contrived “hero” worship!

Today’s rant about the virtue-signaling about “healthcare and essential heroes.”

UPDATE:  A friend saw my video and sent me this… very funny (and true, except the “veteran’s” reaction).

My First Vlog! NY Cuomo insults Americans protesting to go back to work. “Get an essential job.”

I previously wrote about the state-sponsored bigotry dividing Americans into “essential” and “non-essential.” 

Today I read an article featuring an exchange between New York’s Governor Cuomo and a local CBS affiliate reporter.  Governor Cuomo, referring to the people protesting to re-open New York, said they should just get an “essential” job, if they want to work.  Yep… he said that.

Editing to add:  I just found this video of the treasonous motherfucker (Cuomo) saying it and some editorial commentary (Fox News) afterwards.  If I embed the video, it autoplays, and I hate that.  Go here:  https://video.foxnews.com/v/6151570659001#sp=show-clips

I Am at War

I first posted this on Facebook.  I’ve added to it a bit here.  And, I’ve since taken a break from Facebook.  It’s unfortunate that so many mistake their own cognitive dissonance, precipitated by thoughtful posts that contradict their prejudices, for “offense.”  It’s unfortunate that, since they lack the ability to articulate a cogent counter-argument, they strike out by “reporting” me for “offending” them.  I’ve lost a lot of friends over this.

I’m posting and venting about this, because I’m pissed that my own country (and even my own colleagues) are trying VERY HARD to put me out of business.  I also realize that some well-intentioned folks are “worried” about me, because of how I express myself.  Rather strongly, you might say!  😊  I dare suggest that MANY feel exactly as I do.  I just happen to have the balls to say it and the ability to articulate it well.  It’s my super-power!  😉  I’m OK.  But, I don’t care who I “offend” with this screed.

Our country is at war.

This is war.  I am at war.  I really do feel that way.  Not a “shooting war,” mind you.  Not yet.  This isn’t the Persian Gulf in 1990.  But, honestly… it feels worse.  This is much worse.  I wasn’t worried back then.  I knew what I signed up for.  I had an entire Navy battle group around me.  And, I knew that we would kick ass if and when we had to.

Today, I’m at war with the bombardment of negativity about this fucking virus.  It DOMINATES our lives now.  Every waking moment of every single day, with no end in sight.  No glimmer of hope.

I’m at war with the notion that we should ALL shut down, virtually indefinitely… the consequences of which will be FAR worse than the damage caused by the virus.  Well… not actually ALL of us.  The “chosen ones” aka “essential” are exempt.  I’ll touch on that a bit more later.

I’m at war with my own profession.  I have “colleagues” who are publicly jockeying to REPORT any other dentist who dares to see patients in need.  I wish I was kidding.  It’s rampant!

I’m at war with Continue reading Digiprove sealCopyright protected by Digiprove © 2020 The Dental Warrior®
