Confronting Infinity


Confronting Infinity



Borders between life and death have moved from science fiction to exploratory science. Paranormal studies were once only a fringe study. Now the fringe is rapidly becoming main stream. Since man’s inception into this universe he has suspected there is more to being human than a physical self. The word soul has been named in a thousand different ways all with similar meanings: a detached ethereal component of the human body which lives on after physical death. A more modernistic approach to the definition is an incorporeal entity that exists at the quantum level which is indestructible and lives on after all physical activity ceases. Pick your choice both definitions imply a transition into another mode of reality. With great privilege and humility I was allowed to be part of the dying process of hundreds who I knew well in life. These patients and a few friends were aware their time was short in this living environment. One specifically stands out. A former teacher nearing the age of 95 was under my care in a nursing home. Her mind was as sharp as the proverbial tack. The subject of death often crossed her mind. She believed ( I am paraphrasing) a door opened somewhere to let the departed through.  I never saw any fear in her. All I can state from my humble perch is every human will confront this transition, believers or not, that there is an awakening somewhere else. This is one man’s opinion without proselytizing his intrinsic beliefs.

The Delinquent Author

A huge problem for many editors, proofreaders and book reviews is the delinquent author. After a fee schedule is agreed to, with the payment expected at the completion of the work performed, the author decides to play financial charades with you. My Paypal account is corrupted in some manner or form. Another approach is they do not return your e-mails once you indicate the work is completed hoping you will further reduce your fees. Still another format is I will pay you if the book sells. These and many other scenarios may be hard to contemplate yet they happen more than one would think. The obvious resolution to this problem is to get your money up from instead of utilizing the honor system and obtaining it on the backend. I have utilized the honor system because most authors who have asked me to help them are honorable people. Yet I am rethinking my approach. It is no fun when a person stiffs you for nominal fees requested. My question to the audience is: Should you collect your fees up front or request payment at completion of the work?

Sexual Harassment: Many flavors few takers


Sexual Harassment: Many Flavors few takers



Observers of current culture have watched as many men have been pulled into the vortex of sexual harassment. Tiger Woods lost huge as his libido got the best of him. Woods was forced to attend counseling sessions because he liked women. This must be a big business because others of equal note are being entrapped by their own so-called promiscuous behavior. If you are Bill Clinton you get an award while others are tarred and feathered. Now Bill O’Reilly is under the microscope for his latent urges. Thirteen million dollars, as reported by the press, has been paid out to various women who stepped forward with complaints, perhaps more to come. My question is: what flavor of sexual harassment did he display? Did Bill eyeball the woman’s better parts? Did Bill ask the woman to dinner? Perhaps Bill gave her a peck on her face or maybe he attacked a woman outright. I doubt the latter and for the former probably a minor bit occurred. What did Bill have to say about these questionable occurrences in his talking points? It appears his points were not talking on this topic. Word is out he may be on an extended vacation and or permanent one. Sadly I will miss this arrogant man who bloviated each weekday on his news/commentary program which set the tone for Fox’s nightly line up. Perhaps Bill should have picked a flavor few liked therefore he could have finished his career with a clean slate. Good luck Bill. Whatever decision you make Fox will be better off either way.

War is Coming

President Trump's humanity was on the tip of each of the 59 Tomahawk missiles sent into Syria. Sadly Obama would have drawn another line in the sand and ignored that one as well. Hillary, had she become the Commander in Chief, would have been asleep somewhere, as she was during the Benghazi incident. More scary is the armada moving towards the waters near North Korea. This could set off a nuclear confrontation. Sounds far fetched, but it is not. Irrationality rules in North Korea. A powder keg ready to explode any moment. The United States should not light the fuse. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.  As history tells its tales there will be war before peace.

Abuse in Medical Licensing

E-book entitled Anatomy of a Medical License Revocation is in the works. Once you see the proof, through multiple documents, the abhorrent nature of medical board abuse will be apparent to you. Medical Boards have become politicized entities whose followers, mainly lawyers, act like cockroaches fighting for scrapes. There appears to be competition amongst state medical boards to see who can sanction more physicians. The immediate story concerns the Maryland Board of Physicians whose corruption is profound.

America Shafted Obama Rewarded


                                     America Shafted Obama Rewarded





Recently announced Barack and Michelle Obama will receive upwards of 65 million dollars for their presidential memoirs is both stunning and horrifying. During his term in office former President Obama led a scorched earth policy. Every institution, tradition and industry were nearly burnt to the ground by a man with profound ineptitude and incompetence. Under Obama’s tutelage the Nobel Prize became an insignificant relic of bygone days. Executive Orders demolished any sense of collective legislative effort by Congress. To be rewarded by a radical left, who would say or do anything to see President Trump fail, is an absurdity wrapped in irrationality. The little guy receives no golden parachute yet pays for the financial failings of a former President who was never ready for Prime Time. Luckily there has been a change.

Deception in Book Editing Land


Recently I saw an ad from a high end book review and editing company on Facebook. This ad’s deceptive flavor needs to clarified for all those who gravitate to its contents. Flowing with claims it will miraculously help authors have their books placed on the New York Times best seller and other relevant lists is just plain false. Few books make it to this list and the way sales are calculated for this list is questionable. Yet the unnamed high end book review site’s fees are double and even triple charged by those with equivalent and or higher levels of experience for reviewing, proofreading and editing. In my opinion be wary of book review sites with flashy pictures and questionable written content.

Superbbookreviews.com provides an excellent service at markedly reduced fees. With more than a decade of experience in proofreading and writing book reviews/critiques the author obtains exceptional service, promptly completed at  much reduced rates than those from the giants. An additional bonus, for no extra charge, the review is published on multiple internet sites for maximum audience exposure. Please review samples of this work on one of our webs sites, superbbookreviews.com. We work for authors who work for their readers.

Maryland Board of Physicians Scandal 101

MARYLAND BOARD OF PHYSICIAN SCANDAL 101



Maryland’s toxic Board of Physicians has hurt too many for too long. This Administrative entity has a vast legal structure imposed on it to regulate physician function and performance with one caveat, these legal guidelines are not obeyed. Believe it or not the Board of Physicians (Board) has run an illicit organization, for several decades, with minimal to no supervision by the Maryland State Legislature. I have observed first hand this Board’s determination to harm a physician though the facts of the case moved in a different direction than charges imposed. “Enumerated below” are many not all reasons why current Board members and administrative staff (many of whom are lawyers) should be removed from office and investigated by legal authorities who sit beyond Maryland State’s borders. This scandal is more than a civil rights issue. Instead it is one of corruption in a State entity that has gone unchecked for far too long. With thick cronyism in play, judges who will defend the Board even when the evidence is against them and worst of all an Attorney General’s Office complicit with Board hierarchy time has come for an independent open investigation of their malicious behavior. The list that follows is drawn up from personal circumstance inflicted on Mark Davis, MD. A book is in preparation, with documentary evidence, confirming the incredulous journey one physician had, through 2 episodes of malicious prosecution with this corrupt entity, will be published soon.



1)    There is no set standard of medical record review in the files of the Maryland Board of Physicians. Therefore the Board can create any false narrative about a medical record they choose.

2)    Highly paid medical vigilantes review records for the Board. These physician reviewers are engaged from the private sector, given immunity and lie with impunity. I will present documentation in a forth coming book displaying the Board removes medical licenses under false pretenses.

3)    The Court of Special Appeals legislated from the bench that one physician reviewer is sufficient to have a medical license revoked. The regulations as written require two physicians to agree “standards of care” were not met. If two physicians have opposing views a third one is required to be brought into the dispute. In the author’s case of the two physicians utilized one noted this author followed the standard of care. The second physician, who did not practice dietary medicine nor had any special knowledge of this field consistently lied during a judicial hearing, as the transcripts display. Worse he was engaged from a company sued by this author previously.

4)    Knowing the facts in number 3 how could anyone draw up a charging document against a physician when one state reviewer noted this author did not violate the known “Standards of Care.”

5)    The Attorney General’s Office is deeply rooted in the scandalous behavior of the Board. One specific attorney from this office, Robert Gilbert, in his official capacity, fabricated charges against this physician as noted in number 4 to start a prosecution against this physician.

6)    Though the Board’s own judicial arm the Office of Administrative Hearings found for this physician the membership of the Board flipped the decision and gave this author a 3 year revocation which they changed to permanent status after he applied for reinstatement and passed a national test.

7)    The Maryland Board of Physicians is managed end to end by lawyers. From its top Executives to their review arm.  Trashing physicians is their speciality without regard to observance of physicians’ rights.

These enumerated malicious activities and many more, at the minimum, need to be brought before a State of Maryland Legislative committee empowered to review this administrative entity. Abuse of authority is evident. Does the evidence rise to the level of felonies? I would submit this to be the case. In the end patients suffer needlessly for this indiscriminant use of authority. Perhaps in the near future the true nature of the Board’s scandalous behavior will be revealed to all and as a result appropriate prosecutions may occur. My question is will Maryland Courts once again provide immunity for the Board’s illicit activities.  More to come.

The Martian Factor


The Martian factor



     For centuries people gazed at a red dot in space called Mars. With the advent of telescopes early astronomers believed they saw canals on the surface of this world. Canals meant water and water meant intelligent life existed there. As time went by technology enabled humans to discern those shadows on the surface of Mars could be dried river beds not structures built by native beings. Yet the search for life became an obsession with scientists hoping something more than bacteria called the fourth planet from the sun home. Movies such as War of the Worlds and the Angry Red Planet established a trend in thinking that all aliens want to kill us, especially those from this red dot. With numerous robot explorations no forms of sentient life have been found so far therefore I suggest we will not be conquered by aliens in the near future. Interest in this planet has not diminished. Within the next 2 decades or sooner humans will be walking on the surface of Mars via the good graces of a billionaire and or a nation state. We  may have the ability to travel there now, yet should we risk humans in this endeavor. 

     Mars fever seems to be raging within the pool of the extremely wealthy. Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon, backs a company called Blue Origin that has set its sights on a Mars landing. Space X, founded by Elon Musk, is on a parallel course with Bezos for the same goal. Not to be outdone by private citizens NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is working towards a solution for a Mars voyage. These private efforts fail to understand the complexity of a Mars trip. NASA is the only agency, perhaps in the world, which is equipped to send and retrieve astronauts from Mars’ hostile environment and toxic atmosphere. Private efforts under consideration would send voyagers on a one way trip which is unacceptable in this author’s opinion. Yet the exploration bug has been transmitted to many others with less means. With the release of the recent Movie, The Martian, a generation has awakened to the possibilities in space. Nevertheless a few hurdles must be pointed out before the first voyage begins.

     Intense radiation will affect those chosen to make the six month journey towards the red dot. Scientists have not yet developed shielding protective enough to disperse this radiation. Preceding DNA degeneration astronauts will confront several physical deformities. These include accelerated cataract formation, weakened muscles, electrolyte imbalances and softening of bones. Extended visits on the Space Station have produced these effects. Assuming these challenges can be overcome this long interplanetary journey will encounter dozens of hazards which may befall our astronauts. Science requires more research before people embark towards this new horizon. Yet the crusade to move off the Earth is moving fast.

     The Martian factor is those circumstances which preclude a trip to the Red planet presently yet will be overcome as the science strengthens. Interplanetary travel is a few decades away. Those who rush to the door for this adventure will only find tragedy in their wake. Billionaires are pushing this dream but will they personally risk their lives in order for this voyage to become a reality. If not the adventure to Mars will have to stay within the realm of science fiction for now.

SUICIDE POLITICS: SUPPORTING THE UNSUPPORTABLE


Suicide Politics: Supporting the Unsupportable



Juggling numbers to validate a point in a discussion is nothing new to those on the left. Obamacare was passed into existence with lies and persists by the same methodology. Claiming millions would be hurt when Obamacare’s claws are finally removed from the health system is nonsense. Many who moved over to Obamacare were members of the Medicaid set originally and as a point of reference this charitable benefit still exists. Whether 15 or 20 million will lose health care coverage via Obamacare’s demise is irrelevant. This group has government programs to help them. Left out of the equation are 200 million people whose private health insurance costs moved into the stratosphere because a very bad piece of legislation was signed into law in March of 2010. Political dynamos want to substitute another piece of trash legislation in its place. Gladly it failed on the first go around.



Slowly filtered out of the dark corridors of Congress were bits and pieces of another potential health care disaster. Intraparty politics amongst the Republicans doomed health care reform before President Trump took office. Sub legislative caucuses each wanted their own version of reform to pass. With no clear consensus political leaders failed to convince sufficient numbers to side with the pending disaster placed before them. Therefore a vote, for now, has been tabled until party unity is achieved and hence a viable health initiative can be formulated.



Omitted from the debate is the human element. Under the canopy of health care reform politicians have forgotten the medical personnel and patient population affected by their twisted legislative proposals.  The whole purpose of this legal exercise is to bring health costs down not elevate personal egos. Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, has shown he is an ineffective leader yet he will not vacate his position to someone with foresight and marketing skills. Moving legislation forwards requires certain aptitudes not displayed by Ryan. Since Gingrich is not available perhaps someone of equal talents will step forward.



President Trump was a CEO of a major corporation. His ability to get the job done was not a problem because one mind established policies and the rest followed suit. In Washington Trump must contend with 538 people who have a stake in each piece of legislation and its final outcome. Welcome to Washington D.C. where gridlock will affect the best of intentions, as President Trump has displayed. No one could have predicted the President’s own political party would be the obstructionists, yet they are. Many of these depleted minds must confront their electorate base back home and they are mad. Lindsey Graham’s recent Town Hall discussion exemplifies the hostilities awaiting many others when they attempt to explain the failure to repeal Obamacare.



A string of career suicides will follow for neglecting to keep campaign promises. My perspective is Trump will go directly to the American public and point out who blocked health care reform on his side of the aisle. The delay in repeal and replace Obamacare will be indelibly marked on the electorate’s mind. Yet I believe President Trump will not be hurt by this failure because he will make sure people know he gave it his best.

Author of Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription for Disaster

IN THE SHADOW OF OBAMACARE

Pictured here is part of the cover from my book Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription for Disaster. This book was mocked when it first came out by many in power presently. They do not mock it any more. Dead on Arrival generated many radio interviews yet Fox refused an interview unless "big bucks" were handed over to them. The book foreshadowed the disastrous outcome for a piece of health legislation that was never ready for Prime Time. Jump forward four years to view a legislative effort whose shadow is no different than the horrific law it is suppose to replace. Wherever you stand politically replacing one disaster with another is just wrong. Similar to Nancy Pelosi's famous statement "we will find out what is in the legislation onced it is passed into law" the same will occur with the current offering. I am glad it was rejected. As a conservative I am disappointed Congress could not do better. Mark Davis MD manager of bestproofreadingeditingbookreviews.com platomd@gmail.com

Books have lifespans

Books have lifespans. Some last for a few seconds in time others a literal eternity. A book review of note and some advertising may be all that is needed to move it off the digital shelf. Maybe the time has come for a professional book review. Mark Davis MD manager of bestproofreadingeditingbookreviews.com  platomd@gmail.com

TOMORROW'S TECHNOLOGY TODAY AT YOUR LOCAL DENTIST OFFICE


Tomorrow’s Technology Today at your Local Dental Office







Dentistry has moved out of the shadows to become one of the most advanced sciences under the health care canopy. From same day crowns and bridges to laser technologies, which are employed in multiple fashions, 21st century Dentistry has taken a quantum leap into the future. Lasers have taken much of the pain away from restorations. Presently teeth can be repaired by a focused light beam in a few minutes avoiding the much dreaded inoculations of anesthesia, which have kept many out of the dental chair. Lasers are also utilized to repairs gums, remove oral tumors and regenerate nerves.



Dental implants exemplify the future of therapeutic dentistry. Material composites are more durable, easier to install and last decades compared to their predecessors. Unheard of before same day implants are coming on board at your local dentist office. With the use of intraoral X-rays and digital cameras integration of the implant with bony structures is performed in a more precise manner. A celebrity smile now takes days instead of months.



State of the art oral sedation is commonly employed. IV sedation is utilized less now for complex procedures. Safer, more effective with many fewer side effects this form of drug therapy places the patient in a semiconscious state allowing interaction with the dentist. An extra benefit is fewer visits to your neighborhood dentist are required to obtain your picture perfect smile.



Cosmetic dentistry has made major strides. From bonding to veneers composite resins have been improved to match color and function of their surrounding environment. More durable and easier to apply patients appreciate the natural look these resins allow with fewer adjustments needed to get their smile right.



Suffering from discomfort of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) displacement and the resulting massive headaches experienced have become much easier to treat. Devices have been developed that comfortably fit in the mouth resulting in less need for surgical procedures as was the standard a mere decade ago.



Every aspect of dentistry has moved into the future. Procedures on the horizon include stem cell therapies to regenerate teeth, gums and surrounding bone. As a result one day dentures, bridges and other oral devices could potentially become obsolete. The ability to find oral cancers earlier in their growth, utilizing microscopic digital photography, is a few years away. The revolution in dental science is moving forward quickly thanks to the researches of many.  One day soon you will look up from your dental chair and find an automaton leaning over you grinning as it says “how may I help you.”

BOOK REVIEW: ANGELINA'S SECRET


BOOK REVIEW: ANGELINA’S SECRET

AUTHOR: DIANE MERRILL WIGGINTON

BOOK REVIEWER: MARK DAVIS MD

REVIEW WRITTEN: MARCH 22, 2017



Intense passion and adventure define Diane Wigginton’s Victorian era novel Angelina’s Secret. This well written romantic epic revolves around protagonist Angelina Stewart who is less than conventional in behavior and attitude for 18th century aristocracy. Gifted with beauty, grace and a sharp intellect Angelina’s voluptuous frame attracts the worst and best in a society bounded by lust and genteel sophistication.  She is indifferent to expectations of women in her societal class. Angelina uses her physical attributes to defy pirates, rogue agents and a host of other characters as she moves through her travels. As the novel unfurls Angelina’s passions become directed at one man whose own adventures make this book well worth reading. Jude Deveraux finds his equal in the arms of our heroine always returning to her nest no matter what situation draws him away. Author Diane Wigginton enables the reader to enter the Victorian age with intricate descriptions of characters, their surroundings and a story replete with sexual escapades. As a romantic epic all the elements of a great novel intertwine to make this book an excellent read.

SPEX TEST BOOK REVIEWS PURGED BY AMAZON


SPEX TEST BOOK REVIEWS PURGED BY AMAZON



Amazon has removed my reviews of SPEX test and USMLE part 3 books. These books were either owned by me and or I have familiarity with. The reviews removed informed potential readers of the negatives and positives embodied in each of these books. Many were out date or their contents were far removed from that of the current test. Perhaps this is the reason for the high failure rate. As a result of purging my reviews many phony reviews are present giving them 5 star ratings. In the event you are preparing for the Special Purpose Exam (SPEX) there is very little guidance given by these books or other sources. As a SPEX tutor I was attempting to help potential test takers which direction they should take for their studies. I have had contact with an array of people who have taken this exam over the years which has allowed me to accumulate a significant fund of knowledge concerning the SPEX.

Please contact this SPEX tutor who can put you in the right direction to achieve a passing grade the first time around. Contact Mark Davis MD, platomd@gmail.com or 410-515-7858. My fees are low and my experience very high.

SUBVERTING PRESIDENT TRUMP BY PROXY


SUBVERTING PRESIDENT TRUMP BY PROXY



White House is no longer in control by the Democrats. The fumigation process started immediately after Donald Trump took office. Sadly the residual stench of the Obama Administration remains strong. In the last few weeks Obama operatives have seriously attempted a “benign” Coup d’etat against the current leader of the Free World. Their actions are obvious, direct and appear very clumsy. A deficient media supplements these efforts denigrating President Trump whenever there is an opportunity. With revelations by the President his New York City office was wired tapped by the Obama Administration a disgusting clash of ideologies and criminality has reveal its ugly face. Obsessed with power the former Oval Office occupant’s plan is to undermine his successor with demagoguery and false allegations. As Obama’s efforts to subvert President Trump move forward democracy is actually strengthened. How? The electorate has a front row seat displaying that a small group of radicals want to bring America to its knees. Knowing the majority do not want to live in a country that produces nothing and is debt ridden is no consequence to them. Their agenda comes first. Donald Trump will survive every onslaught these diminished individuals bring to the steps of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The question is are you with him or against him?

COLD WAR REVISITED WITH THE RUSSIANS


Cold War revisited with the Russians

A great hysteria has emerged from the cauldron of Democrats still lingering in Washington. Most liberals had their egos deflated after the November 2016 election. Reviving their idiosyncratic methodology, which requires them to deride conservatives, Democrats have latched on to a nonissue, Russian contact. Claiming Trump and his subordinates had backroom discussions with Russians to enable the President’s election liberals of the lowest denominator are making groundless accusations. This includes Trump’s campaign team covertly met with high ranking Russian officials then hid the facts of these contacts. Jeff Sessions, the newest Attorney General, is now under fire for withholding data from the nominating committee. Sessions explained in detail his two meetings with Russian officials which occurred long before Trump took office and he became the highest ranking legal officer in the nation. Nothing short of Trump’s head will satisfy their thirst for conservative blood. Trump needs to concentrate on the people’s work not the nonsense continually thrown in his path. The Russians may be coming or going, but Trump is staying. Mark Davis, MD onandoffthehill.com  platomd@gmail.com  Manager of Best Copy Editing, Proofreading and Writing.

TRUMP TRIUMPHS BEFORE A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS


Trump Triumphs before a Joint Session of Congress



In an enlightening speech that stretched over 1 hour, before a joint session of  Congress, Donald Trump solidified his place in history as the 45th President. Bold, visionary and inclusive the President hit all the right marks. Cloaked in stupidity  opposing Party members sat while the remainder of the audience stood more than a dozen times in appreciation as the President announced his initiatives. From repeal of Obamacare to improvement of the military President Trump touched upon an array of fixes for a nation needing repair. As the President covered many of the actions he has instituted in the last 30 days the Democrats could only grimace knowing the mess Trump inherited was their fault. Especially emotional was the eulogy President Trump gave to fallen Navy Seal William Ryan Owns as his widow look down from the gallery. The ovation to follow may have set a record for length. Tribute was also given to the father of a fallen hero, a women who worked her way out of poverty and a young lady who survived a life threatening disease. Nothing was too trivial for the 45th manager of this country.  Trump shined tonight (2/28/2017) as the country looked on. The question remains how far will the Democrats go to gridlock Trump’s initiatives? From my humble perch the dingbat party will go to the extreme.

CONSERVATISM THE ENDPOINT OF LIBERAL FAILURE


Conservatism the endpoint of liberal failure



Revisionists are already hard at work planting information in the weak minded that Barack Obama was an excellent president. They will tell you in every category the former President was the envy of the World. Yet antithetically he comes in at the bottom of many reviews. Liberal reality can be measured in many ways. From murders in the streets of decaying cities controlled by Democrats such as Chicago and Baltimore to unfunded liabilities seen in California and Connecticut the liberal failure is evident. Irony is those wrapped in a liberal cloak believe the World around them is fine though the evidence points the other way. Hate for conservatives is a natural outcome of liberal failure. Conservatives get the job done more efficiently, on time and under budget. In other words they conserve resources, plan ahead and pay as they go. Liberals by nature are obstructionists who see progress in inches instead of feet as the right wing model displays.

The stench of Obamacare is the most glaring failure in the liberal camp since the election of Jimmy Carter. Sadly the Democrat Party moves further left each decade.



With the election of a Populist President the intellectually defunct opposing party has placed roadblocks for any and all legislative efforts proposed by the current Administration. Prior nominees for Obama were whisked through the Senate at a near record pace. The opposite is true for Trump appointees. Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer has called all Trump nominees less than friendly names. Schumer’s outright denigration of anything Trump not only displays an innate hostility toward the President his socialist leanings have surfaced as well. Liberalism works for a finite period of time, no more.



Nearly a trillion dollars was allocated to rebuild America under the prior Administration. Where did the money go? Roads, bridges, airports, tunnels and more are in worse shape than ever. Who directed the use of these funds? That’s right Obama, Schumer, Pelosi and a cadre of Democrats who are incompetent as politicians and failures as human beings. For the latter reasons these demoralized shadows of people realize if Trump succeeds the Democrats’ scheme of misappropriating money from the treasury will be outed. Redistribution of wealth was the ultimate goal for this trillion dollar reconstruction effort orchestrated by Obama. In Maryland there appeared to be an uptick of sales in high end vehicles by some socially irresponsible groups who hold Medical Assistance cards.  Unaffordable housing suddenly became affordable. Schools beyond the reach of inept minds began opening the doors to a cash laden population. Reparations had become a reality. Liberalism only works when the pain of paying falls to the other guy. America was shafted in the past 8 years now the payback is occurring and  liberal minds cannot accept the new reality.



Opposition to Trump, both before and after the election, continues to move forward by a small group of individuals. Their message is amplified by a media that sees only blue. Tortured by their November 2016 loss we now view the outcries of a party that has lost its footings and needs Prozac paid for by a new conservative health plan. Ultimately the liberal mindset fails when they deplete the one thing required to keep them afloat, money. President Trump’s reorganization of government structure and function will lead to many liberal programs unfunded and or abolished. This should have happened long ago. 2017 will be the year of the conservative. Have no doubt the partakers of welfare from Uncle Sam will be rioting, protesting and calling for the President’s impeachment because the check will not be in the mail.

HOLLYWOOD SUPPORTS TERRORISTS


Hollywood Supports Terrorists



Academy Award show should have been a night of revelry and mirth instead of a politicized disaster. Replete with comments which supported terrorist regimens leftist Hollywood elites could not pass up an opportunity to besmirch the President. Close examination of their statements display a group who truly live in La La Land. Iran was given the stage last night. This is a country which murders Christians, Jews and those of other faiths because their religious convictions are antithetical to Iran’s Muslim beliefs. From the host to the lowest on the acting totem pole a deluge of hate speech poured from those who are not initiated in history, international politics or commonsense. Celebrities have empowered themselves to be the voice of our national government with an unpatriotic and self-absorbed agenda. Academy Award show has become their yearly pulpit to carry out their actions. In reality we saw last night (2/27/2017) a group, whose average educational attainment barely reached the 12th year of high school, comment on immigration policy. Many of us knew ahead of time rhetorical nonsense would flow from the celebrity crowd to a yearly declining audience. A cure does exist to strike at the heart of celebrity impropriety: hit them in their wallets. Then and only then will the left of this radical town move more centric. Please comment: good, bad or indifferent.  Mark Davis: manager of best book reviews, editing and proofreading.  platomd@gmail.com

SHOULD I PAY FOR A BOOK REVIEW


SHOULD I PAY FOR A BOOK REVIEW



     Debate rages on whether a paid book review can benefit an author. Opinions go both ways. More experienced writers shy away from paid reviews because they attract sufficient publicity when they release a work. Another mindset which encompassed a majority of people I canvassed on this subject believed paid reviews are beneficial for them. The latter reference is supported by a vast array of people advertising themselves and or their companies which perform reviews on a fee for service basis. Kirkus is one of the best know companies performing book reviews in nearly every genre, whether fiction or nonfiction. The need appears more expansive than large companies can handle. Enter the multitudes who now review for a fraction of the costs requested by their big brothers. One or more good reviews can ignite sales especially on a platform like Amazon which leans heavily on these written advertisements. With these facts in mind unpaid reviewers still perform a majority of the work.



     Book clubs and groups on social media sites offer free reviews with a caveat.  I will review your work if you review mine. More frequently authors will give a free book in return for a review. Novel Blog Community requires reviewers to purchase a book in the hope more paid work will be generated from the author. The latter model is risky and not utilized by many people. The question arises: What is the quality of the unpaid review? There is no difficulty ferreting out the professional reviews from the rest. Amazon’s open book forums display commentary after each book they have for sale. Superficial nondescript reviews entice no one to purchase a book. While paid reviews generally are introspective, descriptive and usually more extensive than their counterparts and literally jump off the page. Who should obtain paid reviews?



     Named authors are not likely to benefit from a paid review. Their fame generates sales. In this category there is a small contingent of people. For the larger group, including this writer, a well-designed and introspective review or reviews can generate sales and place the author on the literary map. For those who just put a pen to paper for the first time good publicity in the form of a paid review may help distinguish his or her work from the hundreds of thousands who publish yearly.



Digital electronics has opened up new means of reading books and other literature. With the introduction of the Kindle, Nook and other devices larger audiences have access to your works. Discerning which books to read may be enhanced by a summary utilized by Amazon or other sellers. This service is accomplished by a paid reviewer who discusses the gist of the book on sale and hopefully places it in the best light. My argument is there is a wide spectrum of uses for commercial paid reviews which are available from very competent people. Before purchasing a paid reviewer’s service review some of his or her work. Excellent reviews stand out flat reviews fail to attract readers. Careful selection of a reviewer will go a long way to promote your book.

DONALD TRUMP'S THREE VOICES


President Trump speaks in three voices; economic, political and personal. Each of these three voices conveys hope in a time of hopelessness. Donald Trump came along when specious rhetoric from the opposing party tried to fool a nation that all was well. Political opponents threw darkness in his path yet candidate Trump pushed back with a fervor not seen in a generation. America was coasting downhill with no fix in sight. President Trump’s strong hand, steady mind and voice of reason came along to repair the mess as he described the conditions left behind by his predecessor. The Trump effect has infiltrated the minds of everyone who hears his words. Pleasing to most his three voices direct a former sad populous in the right direction. Trump’s naysayers are anarchists, celebrity degenerates, paid agitators and a dumb down populous. Consider Donald Trump the wealthiest repairman who every visited your home. In office for under one month Trump has already undone the tragedies performed by former President Obama in 8 years with more improvements to come. As I stated before we need Donald Trump more than he needs us.  Mark Davis MD

MARYLAND'S GREAT SHAME ITS BOARD OF PHYSICIANS


MARYLAND’S GREAT SHAME ITS BOARD OF PHYSICIANS



Maryland State Legislature is required to oversee its Board of Physicians, yet they don’t. Utilizing the most illicit means to remove a physician’s medical license has become an art form for a Board oblivious to due process, established precedent and the law. More than incompetence the Board has deliberately skewed due process to fix outcomes no matter where the facts lead. From the day a physician is handed a charging document fraught with falsehoods to his final seconds before a politicized medical board the outcome against the doctor is predetermined. I am one of many victims of this malicious entity which works with a corrupt Attorney General’s office to assure outcomes that should never be.



Maryland Physicians go about their practices never aware the Administrative entity which controls their licenses is corrupt and will falsify data to deny their ability to practice. In my specific case a charging document was drawn up against me whose author, Robert Gilbert Esquire from the Attorney General’s Office, knew ahead of time his document was baseless. The State required in 2006 that a charging document have two physicians certify another physician is not competent to practice. If there was a dispute between these two physicians a third was required to intervene. In this physician’s case one of the two medical doctors reviewing for the Board had written a document stating that he reviewed my medical records and found no deviation from the standard of care. Mr. Gilbert knew this fact yet he wrote a malicious report about this physician never using the third physician as required by regulation and orchestrated with his second paid physician to misrepresent my medical records. The second physician in this case had no experience with the evidence in the purported charges. He was a shill.  Even worse utilizing twists in Board regulations I was not allowed to put on a defense at the Office of Administrative Hearings. Under the umbrella of this judicial anomaly the Administrative Judge still found for this physician. Unfortunately the Board reversed the Judge’s ruling and gave me a 3 year revocation. They, meaning the Board of Physicians, had committed another fraudulent act among many.



After the 3 year revocation was completed I was misled into believing that my license would be returned to me if I passed the SPEX test. On or about September of 2016 I passed this test though the Board did not provide any literature stating the contents of this exam (more on this in another news piece). In December 2016, after submitting a lengthy application for reinstatement, I was invited before the Board to speak. The Attorney General’s representative, the person who falsified the initial charging document ( Robert Gilbert), was present. The misrepresentations about this physician were ugly, untrue and based on hearsay as Mr. Gilbert stated them in front of a half dozen Board members. I was given a few minutes to speak. Six weeks later I received a negative response in part stating I was not contrite enough before this panel. They believe that I did not supply enough evidence that I would change my practice habits. Worse I was told in writing the Board would not entertain any further applications from me for reinstatement. Horrific as this corrupt Board’s stance is they are trying to cover up their own tracks.



In the event members of the Board of Physicians reinstated my medical license it would be an admission their rationale for revocation was false, malicious and misdirected. More details will come out as a book in preparation will display. Including solid non disputable evidence the Board of Medicine is as corrupt as a 3 dollar bill. For any questions and or comments I can be reached at platomd@gmail.com  This article will be posted on several national news sites I own and a compilation of the events surrounding my medical license history will be published in the near future. May God have mercy on those who lie to maintain their position in life and or want to move up the food chain on others peoples’ backs.  Mark Davis, MD

QUEEN OF HOLLYWOOD BELIEVES SHE IS QUEEN OF AMERICA


Queen of Hollywood believes she is Queen of America



Meryl Streep is unquestionably the most awarded actress in Hollywood history. Sadly she feels empowered to strike at President Trump whenever a convenient microphone is nearby. Streep’s political rants have made news recently especially her tirade at the Golden Globes last month. Leaning heavily to the left her commentary appears all over the map. From immigration to her reckless imagery of President Trump’s character she does not hold back in her personal attacks on him. Hollywood celebrities, with the exception of a few, lean heavily to the left reflected in their overwhelming support for Hillary Clinton. Ms. Streep’s bold denigration of our current President was answered in kind by the focus of her hateful narrative. Trump Tweeted that Ms. Streep is overrated as an actress. Many would agree with him. Nevertheless Ms. Streep, who believes her wealth and position in Hollywood gives her free reign to direct hateful rants towards our  newly elected leader, is wrong and should be reined in. Day to day this selfish woman does not come into contact with Obamacare, exposure to terrorism, packed flights at airports, illegal crimes and more. As long as her staff cleans her mansions, nannies her kids (if not grown), takes care of her gardens, runs errands and other actions that others perform for themselves she moves along in life untethered by norms we address daily.  Where was her voice when fifty people were killed in an Orlando Florida last summer? Where were her vocalizations when 14 people were murdered by terrorists in her over taxed state of California several years ago? Her silence on these and other acts of terrorism was deafening. Now we have a leader who desires to rein in those who could cause more tragedies against all of us and this wretch of a human being attacks him. Ms. Streep should take her rants to places they would be accepted, like the Middle East. They are not welcome in the New America.

DEMOCRATS TRY TO UNDERMINE TRUMP

Consistent in behavior as always the Democrats are demanding an inquiry into Russia-gate, there self-created scandal. I am still waiting for the results of the Democrat investigation into the IRS when this agency was used to hammer Republicans while Obama was still in office. This is one more open attempt by the Democrats to undermine Trump. It will not work. Trump solidified his presence as a World leader today by hosting Netanyahu of Israel. His predecessor made Netanyahu and entourage leave by the back door. Sadly Obama and his holdovers in various governmental agencies will make it tough to govern. I see mass firings in the near future.

JUAN WILLIAMS TIME TO SEEK OTHER PASTURES


Juan Williams Time to Seek other Pastures



   Sometimes I cringe when listening to Juan Williams speak on Fox News through their various media outlets. Mr. William’s brand of news must inject a bit of darkness no matter where the discussion leads. His strong background working for various news organizations such as the Washington Post and National Public Radio belies the fact he never seems to be prepared for round table discussions or one on one interviews. Race relations, in all its formats, is always on the plate when Juan is in the room. Fox News’ goal to bring balance to their presentations does not excuse them for the many nonsensical statements brought to the air by Mr. Williams. Fact and opinion appear to merge when Juan’s turn to speak arrives. He legitimatizes Democrat actions in the Congress by drawing on fallacious and or misinterpretations of historical events.  Juan sees life through the filter of racism. There is no doubt about his Party affiliation. Juan is 100% Democrat. Hillary’s criminality, no problem for Juan. President Trump’s attempt to keep America safe is impugned by a man whose mind goes in only one direction. I once saw Juan smile. His grimace paralleled that of Lurch from the Adam’s Family. Perhaps Juan Williams has out grown Fox or vice versa. Nevertheless in the very small event I watch Fox programming if Juan is present I move on. Mr. Williams stop stating opinion as though it was fact. Brush up on your elocution skills and above all please stop adding a tinge of racism to every discussion.

APOLOGIES FOR IVANKA

Big apology is owed to Ivanka Trump from the left. Levels of harassment never before seen of a sitting President's child are being directed her way. As a champion of women's issues Ivanka is out in the forefront. This harassment includes but is not limited to verbal assaults on her at the airport, gym, in a commercial jet, of her line of clothes and paraphernalia  in the media and more. She deserves all the respect and dignity anyone else would expect under the circumstance she encounters. President Trump has every right to defend his child and he will. Ivanka I am one person who is sorry this is happening to you. Mark Davis MD platomd@gmail.com 

WHY MANY WILL MISS BARACK OBAMA


WHY MANY WILL MISS BARACK OBAMA



Former President Barack Obama energized the media with his weekly scandals, blatantly confusing rhetoric and the devious nature in which he managed his office. Barack Obama’s passing into history is tantamount to a pin hitting the floor, it’s barely audible now. This article can only touch upon the myth created around an ineffectual leader. As we know myths become legends and legends become whispers of a past that never happened.



Egregious leaders are usually colorful, self-absorbed with egos that define who they are, no less for the former President. Many questions still surround Obama’s background that continues to haunt us today. Why was his school records kept from the public? How did he manage to obtain entrance to Harvard Law School? Who were his financial backers?  One can clearly state a cloak of secrecy enveloped him early on keeping inquisitive minds at a distance. During the hunt to identify who resided in the White House the hunters were stonewalled at every turn. The greater irony was the alphabet soup of media outlets were in the tank for him right or wrong. Those who took an antithetical view to Obama’s stated goals found themselves diminished and or out in the street because there was no tolerance for the truth under the then reigning monarch. The game was who would Obama harm next as he cheated the country out of a well-deserved treason trial.



Against all odds the country did not fall into a World War as Obama destroyed relationships with the few friends the United States had left on this planet. Israel was blatantly rebuffed. Russia was cast as the ultimate evil empire ready to tear into us without notice. China was given the keys to our country as they dumped commercial products on our shores creating massive trade imbalances measured in hundreds of billions. Incompetence cannot be measured. In the event it could Obama’s IQ would be beyond the ability to quantify. The former President’s actions eviscerated this country. Nobel Peace Prize was given to him yet no peace occurred. Trillions stolen from the treasury to reconstruct the country yet infrastructure is still decadent. Health care access and delivery are a mess after spending hundreds of billions on a program designed to lose.  Race relations are infinitely worse since Obama took office for deliberate reasons among them were his blatant hate for every tradition and institution which made this country strong. Ineptitude follows those who spread their wings but have no ability to fly. President Obama could not fly nor did he have the capability to perceive the detriment he caused the nation.  As the toxic cloud of Democrat rule diffuses the left will attempt to stifle the new President’s rule with a collection of measures designed to cause gridlock. President Trump will succeed, as the left, shocked by a loss to him, moves further into oblivion.  Yes, tens of millions will miss Obama for the day to day entertainment his incompetence provided. Now that he has moved on the level of Prozac intake has already gone down exponentially as we look forward to rational government once again. Give President Trump a chance you need him more than he needs you. Mark Davis MD manager of Best Book Reviews, platomd@gmail.com  onandoffthehill.com

Politicization of the Maryland Board of Physicians


Politicization of the Maryland Board of Physicians



Few administrative authorities in Maryland are as corrupt as the State’s Board of Physicians. Delegitimized by a cooperative effort with the State’s Attorney General’s Office physician licensing is mere numbers game to them. Utilizing blatantly false evidence in association with paid medical vigilantes medical license revocation has been brought to a high art form in this very blue state. I have been through this process twice. Each time the lies and misrepresentations by the medical board get deeper and the litigation longer. Facts get in the way of their ultimate agenda to sanction as many physicians as they can. Though the State government has provided a level of safeguards for physicians being inspected by the medical board these regulations are generally circumvented. With the help of a judiciary hostile to physician plaintiffs the medical board tends to obtain decisions favorable to them no matter where the evidence lies.



In my first confrontation with the Board of Physicians in 1990 the author was not aware of many facts at the time. Two physicians who came to review the author’s work at a nursing home he managed had perjured themselves in documentation and at an administrative hearing, were not in the same field as the author and had no authority to review him. Worse these facts and others were hidden by an eager Attorney General’s Office managed by J. Joseph Currans trying to be reelected. When the author had an opportunity through Freedom of Information request to see the documents that included these embedded facts he filed a lawsuit. To cover up the unlawfulness of his office Attorney General Curran’s representatives quickly enabled the author to regain his medical license on or about 1995.



In the author’s last go around with this corrupt entity one of the two Board witnesses engaged by this administrative entity sided with this physician as well as the judge in the Office of Administrative Hearings.That was not enough for these cretins who decide physician licensure. Their appointed lawyer, Robert Gilbert from the Attorney General’s office, brought charges knowing that one their expert witnesses completely disagreed with the charging document’s contents. The Board turned around their own judge’s ruling giving the author a 3 year revocation. Then on request for reinstatement, after passing a national test of clinical knowledge, was denied a license. To wound the author further the Board’s director wrote to the author not to reapply again. Corruption in this entity is not to be taken lightly. My case in not unique yet exemplifies a process that destroys careers even when there is minimal or no root cause.



Attorney General’s Office is supposed to bring factual data to the table when taking a case against a physician into an Administrative Hearing. In this physician’s case that did not happen nor was he allowed to defend himself because of quirks in Board Law. Nearly every rule of judicial and Board etiquette was circumvented to obtain a result that never should have ended in the way it did against this physician. Maryland physicians who have been dragged through the mud by the Board and the Attorney General’s Office are aware of the intrinsic

unfairness embedded in the civil prosecution of physicians. Doctors have few rights and even fewer abilities to effectuate a positive outcome when confronted by a Board that has lost sight of its reason for being and a judiciary in the tank for the Board. There is much more to this story including a massive amount of money that went unaccounted for from the author’s nursing home when the State intervened in its function in 1990, 157 patients who were displaced from their long term home, 160 workers who lost their jobs and more. Deceit unparalleled by a sitting Attorney General and misrepresentations to the public to keep his backside in a government post he did not deserve were at the forefront of this malicious prosecution. This story needs to be told in an evidence based manner and it will. Mark Davis, MD. platomd@gmail.com.
