Ward is a doctor of osteopathic medicine.

LOL.
 
2020-04-27 12:01:29 PM  
They look silly enough already with all of the KKK/White Power/Nazi patches, leather, and denim. Toss in some ham beasts in scrubs and they'll really start touching hearts and minds.

A D.O is not necessarily bad. My PCP through the hospital is a D.O. and has been for years.

I went to one long ago.  In her case it was very much the same as going to a legit GP.

Whether Ward is closer to the holistic approach or the just_short-of-new-age is anyone's guess.

She needs prison.
 
2020-04-27 12:25:02 PM  
From accusing him of arming the people who harbored Osama Bin Laden to ending his cancer treatment just to undercut her primary campaign, Ward left no specious stone unturned.

More like Psych Ward, amiritie?

Last I knew there was a bit of a battle for the soul of osteopathic medicine. There's a group that want to be essentially general practitioners, abandoning the mystical underpinnings of osteopathic medicine; then there are the New age woo types really pissed off at the other group.

True. I wish encouraging false medical credentials would cause her to lose her license.

I wonder how these farks feel about stolen valor and morons who dress up like other heroes (soldiers) to get free shiat.

Can we apply stolen valor laws to any assholes that do this?

What a surprise to find a republican who is a liar and fraud and expects all other republicans to be the same.

Your hospital gives out PCP? What about weed? Asking for a friend.

I don't get the LOL. I've worked with osteopaths for 3 decades. Their training varies only slightly from MD's, and they are held to the same licensing standards in the locales where I have worked.

This person is detestable for obvious reasons, but being a DO isn't one of them. Is there a punch line I missed? Do you think they are quacks like chiropractors?

Would it be a crime to dress as a doctor and just set up a table with a bunch of syringes filled with bleach and a sharps disposal? Don't say a word to anyone. Just stand there and look authoritative with the scrubs and stethoscope. If anyone asks a question just answer with some moron-whisperer sh&t about the deep state not wanting you to have a cure for the hoax, glance at the syringes and give a wink-wink?

We have tons of them in the Des Moines metro... they're all just general/family practitioners. I've never heard any kind of homeopathic or other nonsensical treatments pushed by them... the most they've ever said to us is "if what you're doing is working for you, keep doing it. If not, we'll take a closer look and try some more aggressive treatment."
 
2020-04-27 12:35:16 PM  
I think those chemtrails got to her.

I wasn't always a fan of McCain, but:

More recently, in her attempt to dethrone the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in 2018, there was no end to the bizarre vitriol she spewed.
From accusing him of arming the people who harbored Osama Bin Laden to ending his cancer treatment just to undercut her primary campaign, Ward left no specious stone unturned.


This should have ended her career forever. He was a better human than she could ever pretend to be.

As should be evident from the followup posts and discussion, given Ward's general MO, I think we can guess what kind of osteopath she is.

But I'll admit I should have made that more evident in my initial comment on it.
 
2020-04-27 12:37:02 PM  
But even if they are real doctors and nurses, she said, "when they appeared at rallies they were actors playing parts."

WTF does that even MEAN?

Lawyers of Fark, seriously asking here:

I know the GOP controls pretty much everything that would punish wrongdoings at the moment, but if the Dems win, all these idiots that are essentially helping the continual spread of covid-19, can they be retroactively punished for potentially harming thousands? I mean even something like them being sued, not expecting huge jail time for these farkers. Drumpf making money by having secret service rent his $5000 golf carts of whatever bullshiat may be overlooked when he's gone, but surely people's lives toyed with to push certain drugs or telling people to go March against CDC and other medical professional recommendations, sounds like heavy doses of reckless endangerment.

The scary thing is that Ward won 39% of the vote during the 2016 Republican Senate Primary against McCain.  She frequently tied or beat McCain in the remote rural counties.  The farmers, ranchers, and retirees out there just eat this anti-government conspiracy shiat up.  These are the people who see Cliven Bundy as a hero.

That is right up until they want something from the government.

Speaking as a frontline healthcare worker:

Lying, cheating, MOFO's. may everyone of you get bone and stomach cancer, particularly painful ways to go. and may you die with a full diaper and no one around to hold your hand because they can't take the stench.

Excuse me for that but this really has set me off.

It means that they don't really believe the things they claim, so they assume that no one else does either.

One of my oldest friends is married to a DO, she actually tries to help people and I would trust my life with her, but this biatch can FOAD a thousand times and that still wouldn't be enough.
