The COVID-19 virus which has hit our country is one of the greatest things that has happened to Democratic party. The Democrats do not care how much this viral enemy destroys this country as long as they can get some of their points across and advance the Democratic agenda. This Democratic scheme is not to help the American people, it is rather too advance their position of power. 

What do the Democrats hope to accomplish with this plan, they have to reinvent America? Their wish list on the last stimulus practice package was one of the most shameful things I have ever seen in my life in the realm of politics. I'm a 77-year-old physician that has never held any animosity against democrats and often agreed with many of their platforms....

Chloroquine is still one of the most widely used anti-malarial in the world today. This medication, in one form or another, has been around for hundreds of years. It is revealing to me that our talking heads start pontificating about this medication, they talk about it like it is a new medication and talk about all the bad side effects. The main bad side effect which is retinopathy comes only after a couple decades of use, not the week or two we will use it for COVID-19.

Dr. Fauci wants all kinds of studies done to determine if the medication is truly effective before using it. He said that is the only way he would consider using the medication. I would bet that if he was heading toward a ventilator for COVID-19, he may have a rapid at...

Yes, so am I, and just about everyone I talk to, from a distance. From a Distance, isn’t that the name of a song? How crazy is this what our country is going through right now? For the people shrouded in fear, stay inside. For all the rest of us including this 77-year-old physician, I would just as soon be going about my life and my business.

One thing I am going to make sure and do. I gotta stay out of my car. There are 6 million car accidents in the United States per year. Of those, 40,231 thousand die, and an additional 3 million are injured or disabled. So far, we have about 1000 plus or minus deaths from COVID-19. We can save thousands of lives by just not driving. These are numbers from our CDC, and we must trust them as we are fo...

Have any of you been listening to Pelosi and Schumer talk on COVID-19? It is pretty funny and also completely irresponsible of them to put political spin on a virus that could become a problem in the USA, but has not yet. Listening to them is like listening to a couple of junior high school students that cannot pass a biology test. What is absolutely remarkable to me is these two just spout off about something that it seems as if they have not even read any of their fake newspapers. Once again, they stand at the podium and tell lies. Why? Can’t the Democrats tell the truth about anything?

Charlie and Nancy should have retired a long time ago before they slipped into the throes of Communism. Just think how little control or even influen...

Bernie is coming off the rails. When you watch what B.S. is promising to all the people who will vote for him now, about the only thing he does not say, is he giving away free cars. Now he promises free preschool to every parent in the country. What more could we want than free education, free healthcare, free housing, free food, and any other manner of free government handouts?

This is called Socialism. It all sounds good doesn’t it. What you should probably stop to think about is this. This is what all we give to all our incarcerated prisoners. They have it made! Don’t they? What is so bad about being in prison. Prison is pretty much giving prisoners all the things that Bernie Sanders and company is offering you. Sure, the prisoners d...

Why does our government get upset over foreign powers interfering with our elections? Wouldn’t you think our software engineers are good enough to prevent this? What can our country expect? And why keep clamoring about it when our own country has been interfering in other countries elections for years? Turn about is fair play isn’t it. It is to be expected. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The Democrats just want us to think this is something brand new and that the Republicans are behind it, or perhaps the Russians, or perhaps Bernie’s crew. Who cares?

If Mayor Michael Bloomberg cannot change the votes after spending nearly one half billion dollars already and barely bumping his numbers, do you think smaller foreign countries...

Our beloved Republic, the USA, is a capitalistic market driven economy. Businesses are individually owned, and business owners and entrepreneurs determine from the market what is necessary in our lives and for our citizens to have desirable paths of living. The likes of Facebook, Apple, Google, Walmart and Amazon are all great examples of what a market driven economy can create. In these instances, one person with a great idea created hundreds of thousands of jobs and have changed our country and are in the process of changing the world. Our capitalistic country has made the USA the richest most powerful country in the world.

Socialism is an economic and political system in which the means of production are publicly owned, with the gove...

Over the years, nearly 77 to be exact, many people have asked me how to pick a doctor. I have usually told them to pick out a physician who has the worst bedside manner, is abrupt, and is generally an unpleasant sort. Then if you find that person has a yearlong waiting line to get in to see him or her, you know they must be good. All kidding aside, I am going to give you the results of some studies that may make you a little more cognizant about important facts when picking out your doctor.

The following is from the New York Times and written by Tara Parker Pope on August 14, 2018. This is all new to me but as a male physician, and from experience, I sincerely believe what she is writing about. There is a statement in the book The Hole...

How did the Democratic Party get to the point they are currently at? And where are they at? Does anybody know? What do Democrats stand for? What will they push in the up and coming 2020 election? I think they should probably retreat and try to figure out how they are going to approach the 2032 election after Mike Pence’s last term. I am going to try and show you why I think the Democrats are pushing Socialism.

These are just some of my thoughts on how we got here. And as far as I am concerned, you can trash political correctness. If people’s egos are so easily hurt by an abrasive comment, perhaps it is time for them to get some sensitivity training or go live under a rock. I don’t know if there is training to make you less sensitive, bu...

I watched the last democratic debate debacle. Will someone please throw the Democrats another shovel so they can dig a little deeper, a little faster? How does a political party think they only need a platform of ‘let’s get rid of our president’? In my 77 years of life, I have never seen a political party so wrapped up in hate that they can only run on the promise of I am the best person to get rid of POTUS Trump. Why? What is so great about open borders?

What happened to improving healthcare, education for all and some of the other things they used to talk about? It is getting harder and harder to remember what the Democrats stand for because the only battle cry you hear from them anymore is, we will get rid of our president! They do...
