Judge Roy Moore Faces Leftwing vile

The case of Judge Roy Moore and the sexually explicit representations made in the Washington Post are highly suspicious, both for the timing of their release and content. In Alabama, where these so-called sexual events occurred, a boy or girl can marry with parental consent at 16 years of age. The circumstances of the sexual innuendos aim at Moore with these teenagers decades ago are extremely superficial and circumstantial at best. With that stated I agree with Moore that the Democrat machine dug to the deepest part of the proverbial barrel to find this crap. IMHO Moore should fight back. You know the rest.

Democracy in a Can


Democracy in a Can



Democracy faded in America when political ideologues put party before country. Enervated by egregious forces which sought to displace American Idealism with corrupt policies the nation moved into an abyss that stifled free enterprise and will. Under “their” plan only a few would profit over the many who are subjugated by impenetrable legislative disasters. Presently taxes and health care initiatives oppress a population with a burden which gridlocks our wallets and our personal safety. In order to see the light once more cultivation of a mindset is needed to unify and not divide a nation which had eight prior years of catastrophic reign. Those who lost their way in the 2016 election are touring with a nonsensical rationale that something bad happened on that day. From this perch an intervention took place, whether divine or terrestrial, which moved us out of our stagnated environment. The swamp is being drained but the shadows of prior alligators are ever so present. There are two ends to the tunnel. Let us hope the nation moves to the end that invigorates and enlightens our future.

Richard Branson's Political Acumen Questioned

Richard Branson has been all over the media recently. The admirable billionaire, ever present on LinkedIn, recently has been spewing out epithets about life, wealth and culture. His distaste for Trump is well-known. Branson's ability to pick and or create winning companies has made him very wealthy. Yet he chose Hillary over the current occupant in the White House. Apparently his political intuition does not match his business savvy. Point being too many follow this icon who supported a person that sold out America. Should we continue to lavish praise on such a person?

Rush Limbaugh Out of Touch with Reality

RE: Tax, blue states and your being out of touch with reality

Dear Mr. Limbaugh:
     I heard your diatribe on the potential tax plan today (11/2/2017). With respects you are living in another reality. The middle class will be hard hit by the mortgage deduction abatement no matter where they live. Blue states, reds states or green states it doesn't matter. As conservative, living in Maryland, most of us are middle class. A minimum of 40% vote for Republicans here. The governor is a Republican. To sit in your studio and pontificate that people in high taxed states should move is an absurdity wrapped in stupidity. You will benefit greatly from this tax plan, most of us will not. After listening to you today I am extremely disappointed in your presentation. We are the same age. You went into the media accumulating a great fortune. I was in the Public Health Service and other practices serving mostly the poor. You are too detached from reality to continue this discussion. With great disappointment Mark Davis MD

Terrorism versus Political Correctness

Terrorism versus Political Correctness

Yesterday's events in New York City, as horrific as they were, could have been much worse except for the quick actions of a heroic police officer. Quickly New York's finest moved in to secure the area and protect tens of thousands who pass through the streets in lower Manhattan. Accolades to them, their brothers in the local FBI field office and those in Homeland Security. As a person who was near the mass shooting area in Las Vegas on October 1 ( our plane had just arrived) I have a sense what went through the minds of those exposed to this incredible situation. More laws and regulations will not solve problems as noted here. Instead political correctness and social sensitivities must be reevaluated to protect large swaths of the public from the cruelty in a few peoples' minds. God bless our country and those who protect us 24/7

Mandalay Bay in the Aftermath of Horror


Mandalay Bay in the Aftermath of Horror



      Horror came to a peaceful gathering of approximately 22,000 individuals as the sky rained down bullets on them from the 32nd floor of a very well-known casino in Las Vegas. Mandalay Bay played host to a country music festival on October 1st 2017. With a great lineup and tranquil weather patrons never would have thought the sounds music would be eclipsed by sounds of automatic gun fire. Stephen Paddock gained instant worldwide fame as he carried out his own personal holocaust. This day would be indelibly written on the psyches of millions.

     Unknown to those on Spirit flight 695 approaching McCarran Airport carnage was occurring less than a mile down the road. My fellow passengers and I received our first inkling of the events unfolding that evening when our cell phones finally caught signals on the ground. Thankfully Spirit and their great staff kept us on the tarmac for 90 minutes as the first responders finalized it was safe to disembark the plane. No one at the time knew how many shooters were participating in the slaughter. Courage and bravery abounded everywhere sometimes from the most unlikely sources.

     Once the extent of the evil was known a tide of emotion overwhelmed the faces of those you passed on the streets and vestibules in hotels. An astounding quiet pervaded the areas immediately around the death scene overshadowing the immense building in the background. First responders may have saved thousands. Left to his own devices Stephen Paddock would have continued his reign of terror to an nth point only God could conceive. Fortunately those who moved on this beast did it quickly and effectively.

     The death toll stands a 59 at this writing with more than 500 injured. Makeshift memorials have been established throughout the city. One of note, not far the death scene, displays a series of white crosses inscribed with the names of each victim and statements of regret. As we walked through this area a palpable sorrow and a state of mournfulness was ever present amongst the observers paying their respects. Sadly the media finds the killer more important than the victims.

      Extensive investigations are now underway to uncover the basis for this horror. Stephen Paddock was a misanthrope, no doubt. Yet his extreme actions take a leap no rational mind could envision. When the history of this event is finally penned let us pray no one tries to outdo this maniac. May God rest the souls of these individuals and settle the minds of those left behind.

Maryland's Medical MarijuanaLaws a Mine Field for Physicians


             Maryland’s Medical Marijuana Laws a Mine Field for Physicians





One question physicians should ask themselves is: What civil and criminal penalties may I incur in the event I prescribe Marijuana? Neither Maryland’s inept and corrupt Medical Board nor its self-serving Medical Society have issued any statements concerning potential penalties. House Bill 881 signed by Governor Martin O’Malley in April of 2014 required the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and its Marijuana Commission to derive regulations governing the dispensing of medical Marijuana. Recently directives have been released concerning physician involvement in procuring Marijuana for potential patients. Physician liability was not addressed by these rules or prior statue. Worse, Marijuana is listed as a Schedule 1 substance along with Heroin, LSD and other potential abusive drugs. Under federal rules prescribing Marijuana is a felony unless given prior dispensation by authorities. In recent times federal prosecutors have turned away from charging physicians with Marijuana law incursions if their respective states legalized it. This could change at a moment’s notice. Maryland physicians who become involved in accommodating patients seeking “medical Marijuana” run many risks for few rewards.



Physicians will have to move through multi levels of paperwork to be allowed the privilege to certify individuals to obtain “medical Marijuana.” An unrestricted active medical license and a spotless record of compliance with state regulatory structure is a must. Being politically well connected, similar to those chosen to be dispensers of this drug, would not hurt either. Physicians contemplating being listed for medical Marijuana certification should review all available literature issued by state authorities with particular emphasis on any statements by the Attorney General’s Office and the Medical Board.



Maryland Board of Physicians has a habit of inventing rules and standards care after the fact. Never proactive this Board cherry picks which sections of its legal Title it will follow depending upon who is before it. With a lawyer as the Executive head of this administrative entity expectations were the Board would have created guidelines for implementing House Bill 881, since it had 3 years. Without protections from civil and criminal penalties lawyers will have a literal field day prosecuting cases. Worse incorrectly certifying a patient or a patient who crashes a vehicle, with this Schedule One drug in his or her system, the physician’s liability may be substantial. Point is prescribing Marijuana could be entrapment for physicians.



Lastly does malpractice insurance cover prescribing of Schedule One drugs and the resulting detriment this drug could cause to a patient? Approximately 23 states have legalized Marijuana in some form or manner. Each state manages the legalities and judicial responses to this psycho active drug differently. Maryland’s Board of Physicians is not managed as it should. Control has been given over to lawyers with minimal input from physicians. The unpredictability of this Board’s actions, lacking specific written guidelines and standards for physician involvement with this highly potent drug, may not be worth the risk for health care providers.



The author of this article cautions physicians to be wary of signing on to prescribing Marijuana until such time as the civil and criminal liabilities have been “totally clarified.” Maryland’s Board of Physicians and its attack dog the Attorney General’s Office will quickly blame doctors, not themselves, for prescribing mishaps related to Marijuana, even though they have promulgated no rules as of this writing.
