War On! Obama Deputizes Doctors

Obama Asks Doctors to Help Deal With Guns

By Daniel Halper | The Weekly Standard

According to a background briefer provided by the White House, President Barack Obama is asking doctors to help deal with guns. Here's the relevant passage:

PRESERVE THE RIGHTS OF HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS TO PROTECT THEIR PATIENTS AND COMMUNITIES FROM GUN VIOLENCE: We should never ask doctors and other health care providers to turn a blind eye to the risks posed by guns in the wrong hands.

When I took my young children to the doctor

one of the questions in the new patient forms was if there were guns in the house. It was next to the question of whether there was a swimming pool at our house. I chose not to answer the gun question. The doctor did not ask me to complete the form.

I went to law school in SF with lots of liberal people. I am trying to get through to them on Facebook. Today I asked them this: "Do you think if the lefties viewed gun rights as a civil rights issue they would come to the defense of their fellow Americans?"

I also wrote a much longer post where I asked them to question their prejudices against gun owners, who have been stereotyped and vilified just as other groups have been in the past.

Every doctor I know won't

HIPPA?

I work in Employee Benefits and we have to mainatin strict HIPPA compliance regulations regarding who can have access to personal health info. I like how the Feds can step in like usual and say "Yeah none of those apply to us, we own you..."

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

...and those doctors MUST report...

...to the gubbermint that I told my children human eyesight did not evolve over millions of years from a one cell thing in a puddle somewhere that said "I think I'll be two!"

Thank You very much!

This has been done before...

It looks to me like using "mental health" to silence political dissidents. It has been used around the world. Sad to see it here.

Unprincipled espionage

Disgusting

Don't go

Don't go to the doctor. But I guess they will classify that as a mental disorder also when it is necessary.

Soon it will be apparent that the medical complex is the crux of our loss of rights and enslavement to the establishment.

Don't go to a pathetic, boot-licking doctor

There are lots of freedom-loving and rights protecting doctors out there.

There are also

many on major power trips who think they are Gods.

If I was asked the question my answer would simply be NO, even if I did own a gun.

Simple really

Change all the "on's" to "of's" in your post, and your much closer to the reality of it all.

whoa! this sounds so much

whoa! this sounds so much like Solzhenitsyn's books--a fear of everyone turning you in.

what happens if you decline to answer?

Does that go down as a 'negative' mark?

Or are you refused care?

Or does that qualify you for special medication?

I want answers!

we are not all puppets

As a physician I can reassure you that we will not ask if you have guns at home unless there was a real threat of suicide from severe depression or homicide from active hallucinating schizophrenia. Even if there is such risk I would rather have the patient's family control access to guns by temporarily removing them from affected homes rather than have police get involved and make things worse.
I will personally oppose any laws making voluntary reporting "mandatory" by the Feds and violating patients' rights especially the second amendment rights!

Really?

What if it is part of the contract that you have with the HMO's?

As far as I know

We still have autonomy on how to treat patients and they can only dictate what medications or tests they cover as a way of control over us. When that changes I will stop using insurances all together and go to barter system to accept whatever the poor patients can afford case by case. That will effectively get rid of third party payers altogether for good. It might all come to that sooner or later anyways if Medicare follows Medicaid and go broke completely.

I'll let you know if they try asking me

Because my answer will be "It's none of your busness!"

im gonna hold you to that

Cause I sure as hell aint goin!

"The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle."

Pediatricians already ask

if there are guns in the home and if they're locked up. Depending on which parent goes to the pediatrician, that question may have already been answered without your knowledge.

This is housekeeping. Any old school doctors WILL retire now.

Obamacare will be delivered by all new doctors, trained in the ways of Pharmacraft and who never were trained in ethics (things like confidentiality.)

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Hippocratic oath not even required anymore

or so I've heard.

FWIW

The true authentic Oath has been hopelessly un-PC for decades since it explicitly forbids abortion and implicitly acknowledges both slavery and homosexuality as accepted behavior.

Further taking an oath to various pagan deities seems to violate the commandment about other gods so devout Christians and observant Jews would seem to have cause to object.

So what some places do use is a bastardized version(advertised as real of course) written by some bureaucratic hack named I swear, Lasagna.

Wouldn't it make more sense for MDs to look at

MEDICATION as a factor in Violent behaviour????????? Holy S*** this is hilariously messed up!!!

Take responsibility for you own health and avoid doctors

unless absolutely necessary. That works for me.

I suppose a good test for insanity would be that you did tell them if asked that you had guns, did think of suicide, or did think of mass shootings.

If they ask, and you are sane, you know better in the present political climate than to answer these questions in the affirmative. Just follow the behavior of politicians; lie.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Amen

I dont need a doctor to maintain my health - thats my responsibility - I only need a doctor if sonething is broken and I cant fix it.

"The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle."

As soon as I saw the topic

I knew it was you. Stop instigating violence here please. I for one am not going to participate in the de-population agenda... knowingly or otherwise.

I respectfully disagree. Is

I respectfully disagree. Is the OP the instigator of violence and war -or- might our own "elected" leaders, perhaps be the real instigators? Our Gov. seems to love war. We have the War on Drugs. the War on Terror, the War on Poverty, the War on Illiteracy, etc.

The "wars" on Poverty, drugs, illiteracy etc. were fancy slogans used to divert attention from the fact that they are all efforts of government to expand their sphere of power over us by encroaching into areas that should be solely our own personal responsibility. This is ostensibly for the "good" reason that we are not capable of caring for ourselves, therefore, government must assume responsibility for us. In truth, it is simply a matter of exercising more and more governmental power over our everyday lives and the decisions we make.

Then lie down and take it

Then lie down and take it like a dog. Roll over. God boy, here's your bone. Now get into the back of the bread line.

There is no violence being advocated here.

.

i agree

if the first place you went is "violence" when you see the word "war" then maybe it's you that has a problem with violence... what i thought of was "the battle is on" ... avoid your doctors, etc..

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

VIA DRUDGE: "WAR On! "Obama Deputizes Doctors

I didn't declare the war, President Barack H. Obama did...

Sorry if you are disturbed buy what Matt Drudge posted...and I passed on to the DPers...

Happy New Year pal!
