    Did I ever say it was not a big deal? NO!!! What I don’t understand is how this story makes all doctors criminals, morons, imbeciles, greedy…… A doctor made a mistake. Fortunately it is not a life threatening mistake. Will he get punished (ie sued), most likely. Does that make all doctors bad doctors? NO!!!

    I know what a frenulum is as, I send many infants to specialists for tongue tie. I have also seen kids that have accidents and lacerate their frenulum in a fashion similar to what a tongue clipping would do. Guess what? There is no long lasting, damaging effects. You can still eat, you can still speak, you can still stick your tongue out. In fact you may now be able to stick you tongue into your nostril if you couldn’t do it before.

    The big issue is to not demonize ALL doctors because A doctor made a mistake.

    You wonder if I am in the med/Pharma industry? I could not tell you what companies make what medications. That is not what is important to me. What is important is prescribing the right medicine for the right condition.

    Its_just_me: If it was only that easy… open the book and read your diagnosis or why not just ask Siri to do it for you. Every person is an individual and every individual does not present with the same symptoms for the same disease/illness. Experience working with a variety of people is where the knowledge comes from, not just a book of research. I have diagnosed and treated many kids this week with strep. Did they have the classic text book sore throat, headadche, fever and/or stomach ache? NO. Some only vomited once. Others had diarrhea. Yet others had only a cough. My experience lead me to the diagnosis, not a book. You would have allowed these kids to develop rheumatic fever, using only your book. I can read a book about carpentry, dentistry, flying an airplane: but it is not until I put that knowledge into practice that I begin to perfect my knowledge and skill at that profession. Your claims of the worsening of autism, alzheimers, cancer etc… is based in a false premise. You assume it is doctors causing this, yet fail to take into consideration those people like you that think you know better than everyone, therefore refuse to immunize your children and allow polio, small pox, pertussis and other life threatening diseases return, when once they were nearly eradicated. You fail to take into consideration that maybe autism and cancers have been severely under diagnosed, but now we are wiser and understand the human body and it’s behaviors better.

    ipockpa: this was not a life threatening mistake. That is my point. Was it wrong? Yes. Did the doctor admit the mistake? Yes. Have you ever made a mistake in your life? Your job? My bet is yes. Of course mistakes happen in every person’s life and in every person’s job. So should I go around calling every plumber a moron or imbecile, because one broke a pipe in my house while trying to fix another problem. Or call every police officer a moron or imbecile because one accidentally arrested the wrong person because of a mistaken identity? Are all cabinet makers morons and imbeciles because one of the hinges on my cabinets is misaligned and makes the door too stiff to open? Let the one without fault cast the first stone.

    That’s easy for you to say in a public and anonymous forum. My guess is that you sure hope your doctor can help figure out what is wrong with you when you are sick, having chest pain, can’t breathe or are on your death bed. As long as you are healthy, they are your worst enemy, but get sick and they know alot more about sickness and health than you do. Are they perfect in this? NO. Are they more perfect in this than you? YES!!!! Do you think your doctor could perform your job as good as you? I bet not.

    What most people are reporting is that clipping of this frenulum will not result in any long term harm to this infant. Was it an error, yes. Is the child permanently damaged? NO. What I find interesting is that this doctor was willing to admit his mistake, rather than try to play the blame game. I love how so many people criticize doctors and what they do, then go crying to their doctor to try and help explain what is going on with them when they are ill.

    Kwallace48: That is exactly my point. When you go in to get hired for a job, you do your research on what the going wages are. You also try to sell yourself as being better than average and therefore justifying a higher than average wage. However, in the end, a market driven economy allows for an employer to higher many workers of the same caliber at different wages. It all comes down to what am I willing to offer and what are you willing to accept. Maybe, the question should be, are women getting paid less, because they are willing to accept lower pay for the same job?

  • [71] February 1, 2016 at 11:49am

    So, it’s OK for me to pummel someones face in the ground, but no cop can touch me or it is police brutality? The Democrats really need to change their party name to the Hippocrats.

    Why did she take the job for $2000 a month if she knew others were getting twice that? As your potential boss, I will pay you what I think you are worth and what you are willing to accept. It’s the art of negotiation. You have to know your stuff when you go in, and can’t cry foul if you find out later that you had lower expectations than others. She says she had the same experience and job title, yet she says that the men were working full time, as if they didn’t deserve as much money because they already were working more than her and getting paid more at their regular jobs than her. What happened, is the campaign hired her as “part time” and paid her as “part time” and now she is comparing herself to others that were hired “full time” and paid as “full time”. She is comparing apples and water chestnuts.

    Topsoil: In no way did Trump exploit the vets. From the very first debate, he tried to get the cable networks to donate, but they did not. So, he did it! Is that wrong? He had an agenda/goal and he wasn’t going to stop until he met it. Isn’t that what we want from our leaders?

    Aihanna: So you want someone to lead our country that can be swayed by public polls and opinion to completely change what he believes in? You are calling him a Bully because he did not crawl back home on his hands and knees when it was time to play? Instead, he stood his ground and put action to his word! A bully would have shown up at the debate and tried to hijack it. Trump disagreed with Fox’s agenda and decided to stay away. That is not bullying. I hope you have taught your children to stand firm for what they believe in.

    Punker_Rocker: He did not throw a fit about the question, the fit was in regards to Fox’s response to him going after Megyn Kelly. Donald Trump has not fooled me one bit. I see Donald Trump as someone that can look at both sides of a negotiation and find a middle ground that will make progress toward a goal. He is not hyper right or hyper left. That is the problem with our government right now is that we have everyone so far right and so far left that no one will even agree that the earth orbits around the sun. I want someone who is part establishment and part not. More conservative, but can see the liberal side. What is wrong with that?

    Your-Mom: A hooker? You think I should be listening to the opinion of someone willing to partake in an immoral act? I have far different morals than you, so I can see why we might disagree.

    Cricket one: can you not see the geniusness of Donald Trump? He is showing the American people how he will be president. When Iran wants to make us bow down and concede to their negotiation demands, Donald Trump will have the balls to walk away and make Iran come begging for another chance. While Cruz and gang are fighting for some spotlight on Fox, Donald is on every local TV station and most cable news stations in Iowa and even getting appearances from other presidential candidates at his event, all while his name keeps popping up on Fox. The guy thinks outside the box. We need a president that can think outside the box, negotiate for our benefit and can bring people of differing opinions together for the better cause. GENIUS ! GENIUS! GENIUS!

    Electrician8: Just because a majority disagrees with you, doesn’t make them trolls.

  • [9] January 29, 2016 at 12:01am

    Your-Mom: it’s refreshing to have someone like Trump break up the monotony of doing politics as usual. Are you satisfied with Government? Me neither. So let’s elect another “establishment” candidate. (Homer Simpson “Doh!”)

  • [108] January 28, 2016 at 11:35pm

    Donald Trump showed us tonight how “non-establishment” he is!!! We are sick and tired of politics as usual, then try to demonize Trump as he doesn’t do politics as usual. I actually watched his event on CNN and Time, rather than the debate. It was great. I agree that we as individuals and as a nation need to stand up for what we believe in. He did not give in to the pressures of Fox, the media and others. Just as we need a president that will not cave to the pressures of foreign governments. Honestly, you can’t help but admire what Donald Trump has done to this political season.

    jrein82: They may be cheesy, but they have a lot of truth in them.

    As for Frank, you are right, you don’t make him the CEO… Oh, wait, he is the CEO of the consulting firm he built and has been hired by the FBI and other security firms. He lectures (ie teaches, trains) those that are running these organizations. You’re right, don’t make him the CEO of one organization, but let him be able to influence many organizations with his wisdom and expertise. Just as the President of the US of A has much influence over many government organizations that badly need reform.

    AcceptTheTruth: Who ever said as a Candidate you have to go to the debates or you lose all credibility? That is the one thing about Trump. The country is sick of government running the same horrible way it has always been running, but then you cry about a candidate that actually wants to show you that it doesn’t have to be done the “normal” way. If you want the same failures in government, vote for the guys or lady that are campaigning and promising to keep it the same and not break from any form of tradition. I honestly think it would show the country how serious he is when it comes to negotiating and him standing up for what he believes is right. I mean, look, prior to Trump, pulling a news network out of a planned debate because of their biased views and attempt to exploit a debate to further them, never would have happened. You don’t believe Trump could get the Chinese and Mexican governments to eat out of the palm of his hand? All it takes is someone that is honestly willing to stand up for their beliefs and the USA is the world powerhouse once again. I can see Cruz coming close, but Trump will be able to get both conservatives and liberals on board with his policies. And that is not a bad thing. Staunch partisanship is a bad thing for this country. .

    If your store has a problem with getting robbed, who is the best to help you figure out how to stop a criminal? A formal criminal that knows a criminal mind.

    If you are trying to create a dollar bill that cannot be counterfeited, who could be of the most help? A former counterfeiter that knows what resources and materials a counterfeiter has at their disposal.

    If you are trying to start a business from the ground up, who do you ask for guidance? Someone that has done it themselves.

    If you want to improve the campaign laws, who would know more about how to do it, than someone that has worked both sides?

    What did most of our mothers teach us? Don’t put yourself in a bad situation!!! Why is it being a “Wuss” to recognize a potentially bad situation (ie, someone has a chance on National Television to spin lies or create distrust toward you, or give the media anything to try and destroy you right before a big primary election)? A SMART person would heed his mothers warnings and avoid the situation. An IDIOT would walk in there knowing that they are at risk. Am I saying that Megan Kelly is trying to destroy Donald Trump? NO!!! I just find it funny that people call you a WUSS if you are being SMART. I know the Democrats want everyone to be an idiot so they can control you, but Republicans should stand for individual rights, freedoms, choice, accountability… Not act like a schoolyard bully. What Donald Trump is doing is actually quite genius. He is putting it out there right now, so that Fox has no choice, but to play fairly, otherwise he gets to say “I told you so”. Donald is in control whether you like it or not.

    Here’s my question: “Why are the Democrats so afraid to face off with each other in a Presidential Debate?” This isn’t the interview portion of the Miss President Pageant.

    I think people have forgotten what government is all about. We have 2 parties that are trying to go so far to the left and so far to the right and make compromise sound like a dirty word. Washington and our country would be better served by someone that knows how to bring 2 extremes together and make some compromised deals, rather than “business as usual” which means we act like school children, whining and crying that the other is breathing our air and we never accomplish anything.

    Heck, even the Constitution was a work based on compromises!!!
