Doctors Visit

My Medical Appointment

I visited a physician last week. It was a “new”doctor in the practice--a young lady (at MY age, EVERYBODY is“young”--when I was born, the Dead Sea wasn’t even sick) who was quite enthusiastic. She was obviously a liberal by her dress and manner.

She asked me what was wrong, and I replied, “I have a cut on my leg; and I think it may be getting infected.”;
She said, “Before we start, I have to ask you a few questions. Are you allergic to any medications?”;
I replied, “No.”;
She said, “Do you have any guns in the house?”;
I said, “HUH??”;

She replied, “Guns. Do you have any guns in the house?”;
I asked, “Why?”;
She said, “I’ve got to ask this question. It is required under the Affordable Care Act.”;
I asked, “What are you going to do with the data?”;
She said, “We compile it, amalgamate it, and submit it to the government.”;
I said, “Well, I have a Tommy Gun. I let my kid Tommy play with it.”;
She said, “What’s a Tommy Gun? I don‘t think that is the kind of gun they are concerned with.”;
With THAT, I knew I had a live one. I said, “It’s similar to a B.A.R., but a little heavier and shorter. I have a B.A.R. also.”;
She said, “A B.A.R.?”;
I said, “Yes.”;
She looked puzzled. Then she brightened up and asked,“Do you have any assault rifles?”;
I attempted to look puzzled, and said, “I don’t know. What is an assault rifle?”;
She said, “That’s a gun that is used in wars.”;
I said, “As a matter of fact, I do. I have a replica of a Revolutionary War musket.”;
She began to look a bit exasperated. I pretended not to notice and kept up the appearance of trying to be helpful.
She said, “Do you have anything more modern than that?”;
I replied, “Well, yes I do. I have a replica muzzle loader from the Civil War. Do you know the difference between a musket and a muzzle loader?”;
She rather peevishly said, “No, I don’t; and I don’t want to. What else do you have?”;
I said, “I have an M-1.”;
She asked, “What’s that?”;
I said, “A rifle.”;
She asked, “What kind?”;
I replied, “It is called a Garand.”;
She rather loudly said, “I don’t care if it is a grand rifle or not. Is it an assault rifle?”;
To which I replied, “I don’t know. I don’t know what an assault rifle is. You say it’s a rifle used in war, yet you say that my musket and
muzzle loader are not assault rifles.”;
She calmed down (a bit) and asked, “Anything else?”;
I said, “I have an MG-.30, and an MG-.50. I‘m also part owner of an Apache. But they are not rifles.”;
She stated, “Well, then, I’m not interested in them. Anything else.”;
I replied, “Well, yes. I also have a 12-gauge and a 20-gauge pump. They are not rifled though.”;
She said, “I’m not interested in pumps; I’m interested in guns.”;
I replied, “Well, then, I have a Colt, a Luger, a Glock, a bazooka, a Parabellum, a Kalishnikov, a Henry, a Uzi, a Llama, and a Beretta--but
they are not rifles.”;
She then said, “I’ve had enough of this. I think you’re toying with me. Let me see your leg.”;
I then said, “Excuse me, but before you look at my leg, I have a few questions to ask of you.”;
She replied, “Of course. What are they?”;
I said, “I have given you a lot of information about my guns. I am somewhat concerned about your knowledge and ability to assimilate, make
coherent sense of that information, and report it correctly. Do you know the difference between a .22 caliber and a .223 caliber? It’s a rather
fundamental difference.”;
She replied, “Actually, I don’t.”;
I said, “I see. Let me ask some more relevant questions. “How much money do you make?”;
She said, “That’s personal, why do you ask?”;
I said, “Well, in pushing the Health Care Act, my president cautioned the population about doctors that would amputate a leg rather than treat a cut because they make more money that way. Consequently, I wish to know if you are financially troubled. What kind of car do you drive? What are your house payments? How much is your mortgage? How much credit card debt do you have? Do you have a student loan; if so, how much?”;
She said, “I’m not going to answer those questions. You have no right to ask them.”;
I then asked, “Do you have training and education in homeopathic techniques? Do you know the benefits/effects of CoQ10, ginseng, fish oil,
Creatine, BCAA, and other such herbal treatments?” Do you know the difference between Panax ginseng, American ginseng, and Siberian ginseng?”; She replied, “Well, no.”;
I then asked, ”Well, have you studied it at all?”;
She replied rather defensively, “NO; it’s all a bunch of hogwash anyway.”;
I said, “Oh, then you have read the research on it. What have you read?”;
She then said, “I don’t waste my time reading such things. Why are you asking me these questions?”;
I said, “Well, if I’m going to turn my body over to you for treatment, I believe it is reasonable for me to know something about your motivation, training, experience, and competence. Do you know anything about the practice of holistic medicine?”;
She said, rather angrily “No, I don’t.”;
I said, “Oh. O.K. How much experience do you have in practicing medicine?”;
She replied, “Well, not very much.”;
To which I said, “Well, we all have to start somewhere. What medical school did you go to; what is its rank in terms of other medical schools; where did you intern; and where did you do your residency? What is the rank of the hospital where you did your internship and residency?”;
She rather peevishly said, “All my credentials are posted in the waiting room.”;
To which I said, “Really? The rank of your medical school is posted in the waiting room? Do you have any experience with leg injuries? If so, how much?”;
I guess that was too much for her. She rather crossly said,“I think it would be best if you saw a different doctor.” and started to leave the room.
I said, “You know, doctor. You asked me irrelevant questions about my guns, and I answered them. Whether or not I own guns is really none of your business and has absolutely nothing to do with any treatment you might prescribe. On the other hand, I ask you questions quite relevant to my situation, and you refuse to answer them. Isn’t that somewhat backwards?”;
She said, “But I HAVE to ask those questions. It’s the law.”;
To which I replied, “Actually, it is NOT the law. Here is what the law says--taken directly from the Affordable Care Act:”;
‘‘(1) WELLNESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS.—A wellness and health promotion activity implemented under subsection
(a)(1)(D)may not require the disclosure or collection of any information relating to—;

‘‘(A) the presence or storage of a lawfully-possessed firearm or ammunition in the residence or on the property of an individual; or

‘‘(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm or ammunition by an individual.

‘‘(2) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION.—None of the authorities provided to the Secretary under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act shall be construed to authorize or may be used for the collection of any information relating to—;

‘‘(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition;

‘‘(B) the lawful use of a firearm or ammunition; or

‘‘(C) the lawful storage of a firearm or ammunition.
“As you can see, you have broken federal law TWICE--once by asking, and once by collecting data. It is perfectly legal for me to own guns; it is not legal for you to ask and/or collect such data. YOU are breaking the law, and yet YOU are the one that is angry. Not only that, but you erroneously stated that you must ask such questions, and you did it in a very authoritative and convincing manner. You gave me false information, which I then acted upon by answering your questions. On that basis, how can I be expected to trust your medical judgment? When I attempted to ascertain your medical competency, you became defensive and hostile.”; “There is really no need for me to see another doctor in this practice. I‘ll go somewhere else, where my privacy is respected, and I can trust the information I receive.”;

Up here in liberal land, tehy ask you if you have guns in the house before a home health care nurse comes to your house. I would refuse to answer one way or the other, if ever asked. However, law abiding gun owners, thinking that since it is still legal to own guns, answer the question truthfully and are then told that they can't have a nurse visit their house.

and I consulted a Doctor[who insisted on such insanity] I would attack that State[?] regulation in Federal District Court as a violation of my Constitutiomal Rights, on TWO counts:

First : infringement of my 2A rights.........["shall not be infringed"]

Second: Violation of my 14A right to EQUAL PROTECTION under NJ statutes.

I killed a nice buck with my bow, near port St. Lucie years ago. My best friend moved down there, it was a nice 8 point rack, the deer weighed a whopping 80 pounds, lol.

I am worried because I was prescribed meds for PTSD. I would never ever do anything illegal but the doc talked me into trying paxil. The docs give this stuff away like candy. I am non violent and could never hurt anyone (unless they fucked with my kids/wife). I dont know what this world is going to. Since you seek help from a medical professional you are now the equivalent of a school shooter even though you never did anything unsafe/violent.

captmax, I'm asking your permission to post your experience with the doctor (in its entirety) on another web blog. I also contribute to this blog as a writer and its readership is primarily interested in politics and gun control. Your article would be a perfect piece for inclusion there. Obviously, there would be attribution to you as the writer, I would just be reposting. To make your decision, I invite you to visit my own blog at http://peskytruth.wordpress.com/ to show you who I am and where my interest lie.

And so you can check out the blog that I propose to post on, here's that link: http://hardnoxandfriends.wordpress.com/

I won't do anything unless you approve.

There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period. Ted Nugent

Sorry I did not reply sooner, of course you can re-post it. It was written in parody to begin with. I re-post stuff all the time, I am sure not to attribute someones actual name. I would usually write something to you saying I was reposting it on facebook.
