Patient Outcomes

There are many variables that contribute to patient outcomes and an accurate reckoning and weighting of those variables can be difficult and challenging. For the past 18 months we have been listening to “experts” tell us what we should do about wearing masks, social distancing, and vaccinations. A very critical and almost always overlooked factor […]

Race and Poverty

I have been a practicing physician and surgeon for the past 44 years. During that time I have watched the Medical Profession become politicized in ways that many people (patients) would be surprised about.

Here We Come

Mark Twain once opined that “it’s not the things that I don’t know that worry me, but rather the things that I know to be true that aren’t true that worry me”. We should be very careful about being certain or evoking “settled science” into any debate. There are two points that need to be […]

The Great Covid Caper

While I don’t believe we are heading for what Aldous Huxley described in his book “Brave New World”, I do believe that if Joe Biden is installed as the 46th president of these United States, we will see the beginning of the end when it comes to our constitutional freedoms. We saw the beginnings of […]

Deep Pockets – Triangular Financing

As we slowly emerge from the Covid pandemic of 2020 there will be plenty of “Monday morning quarterbacks” that will in retrospect imply that things were done wrong and that they could have done better.

The Great Covid Robbery

I’m not quite sure why anyone thought that this virus was about anything but money. The U.S. government has distributed well over two trillion dollars during this so-called emergency and the states and medical establishment have sucked it up faster than a dry sponge at a car wash.
