Dear Chess,I have to say something to you that has been on my mind for awhile now and I want to preface it by saying that I think you are an intelligent individual with insightful opinions, however, your grammar is driving me crazy. I come to this blog because 1. I tend to agree with almost everything Tom writes and it’s nice to have some philosophical resonance with conservative thinkers in spite of so much liberal BS in our country. 2. I love reading the comment sections because the people that agree with Tom’s posts seem to be pretty intelligent as well and as far as the people that disagree, Tom does a nice job of responding and destroying their liberal arguments. I have really enjoyed the comment sections until you started inserting your disjointed phonetically based two cents on every post. The first couple times I read your comments I thought it was coming from a nearly illiterate teenage girl that was submitting her opinion from a cell phone key pad. I thought this punctuation and grammar nightmare will stop once this person can use an actual computer with a keyboard to write in the comments. But nothing is changing. It seems to be getting worse actually. To be specific of the grievances: no capitalization of words at the beginning of a sentence and proper nouns, extreme overuse of ellipses, incorrect spelling of simple words, incomplete sentences, weird spelling of names you’ve made up for Barack Obama (to be clear I don’t care about calling Obama names but just spell them in a normal way), absence of a space between words and the end of a sentence, to name a few. Now I’m not asking for perfection, I’m sure there are errors in this post I am making right now, but please give it a little effort. I’m not an English major and I’ve never been a grammar Nazi but what you have been posting is driving me away from Radio Free NJ, it’s starting to get annoying to see someone butchering the English language so much. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and I’m sure you have valuable insights to share that I would like to read but please try to organize your thoughts into cogent, rational, complete sentences. It might even help you to write your comment in Microsoft Word to use the spell check feature and then copy and paste what you have to say.Looking forward to seeing more posts from you in the future,Michael
mike i understand..my typing is a mix of type/text..i dont know how to type..so when i do its a mix.. 6 years ago i quit medicine cause i had an immune system go wild. had the proverbial flesh eating staph infection probably from a patient and was on medication for 6 weeks. unknowingly the medication that saved my ass destroyed my connective tissue. 6 months after my treatment j/j put a black box warning out on LEVAQUIN.you can goog it and tendon problems. i havent been same. both feet were destroyed and most of tendons in shoulders,elbows, and hands. so i type with 2 fingers and a brace on the left wrist....thats life...so ill just watch and read. sorry to have inconvenienced all of you.ill just read from now on.thanx
Very evocative production. It seemed clear to me almost immediately, however, that this was not a production authorized by the Catholic Church. The producer appears to advocate for a Constitutional Convention. A vertically integrated structure like the Catholic Church is resistant to change. To me it is of great comfort that so many wish to live their lives in protection rock of St. Peter. Yet, the church is made of men and women, who by their God given nature at times stray from the path of what is right. The history of the Church is rife of examples of interventions into what is Ceasars with most unfortunate results. Once the church puts in, it stays in because a vertically integrated organization is not well suited to correcting errors in policy or doctrine. But this is not news to anybody. All this leads me to think this morning about what leads to doctrinal or policy errors by such a vertically integrated system in the first place, by looking at the preferences of the individuals who come into the church. To nearly the last one, each member of the church wants the best for his or her neighbor. At the same, it is part of what makes us human to fear our own perception of what God wants from us. Moses was so fearful when God fist asked that he deliver a message to Pharoh, that Moses referred God to his brother. Execution on our perception of God’s will for us is fraught with our perception of risk, which inhibits our actions. Surely it would be easier for somebody else, who may know better what to do, to take action.
Orthodoxy, I think, appeals to the “they should do something about that” impulse. A wrong should be righted, but the individual does not need to take the risk or conquer the fear of vigorous action, when they are a member of a group that supports the “they” who may do something. So being part of a group that has good intentions provides a feeling of absolution that salves your fear of your own spirituality. So it seems to me that the Church would attract a greater proportion of those whose thinking is characterized by this type of thinking than a pure cross section of the population. Such a group would be more prone to policy or doctrinal errors because of the prevalence of fearful abdication. So in the posted film clip, as soon as the letters spelling “Freedom” came from the fire, I knew this was not coming from the Catholic Church. In my view, the Church committed a great error, when it put in with the New Deal. The resulting state of affairs now is the one who questions whether the tax the rich to benefit the poor is the best way to achieve the greatest good strikes at orthodoxy. The response from an adherent may be extraordinarily virulent, because the “tax the rich” principle provides many layers of protection from the fear of your own spirituality. A proponent of stateism will cite the stance of the Church on the issue, while in the next breath telling you with unabashed conviction they are a free thinker and the opposite of dogmatic. Yet it is their unseen dogmatism that shields them from their own fear. I just had breakfast with a friend. I confided in him about an arising resentment from an activity where I give of myself to others. He explained to me that God grants favor to the cheerful giver. He suggested that I look at my own motivations for giving, if it was ending in resentment. I am now thinking that maybe if I give differently and more cheerfully, God may grant me greater favor. The blessing is not that I give, it is in the favor that I pray God may grant me. I have faith that such good favor flows more freely when I am in good cheer, as opposed to resentful. I don’t know anybody that is cheerful who demands a tax. I know I am not cheerful when I surrender to a tax. Attacks are the best way to crowd out cheerful giving. They are the opposite of the freedom of choice that lets cheerful giving flourish. So I suppose my point is that the thinking in the posted film clip is validating to me, I am skeptical that such thinking will be game changing for the bulk of Catholics, because of the prevalence of fearful abdication, which they are not capable of appreciating.
Chess,Don't be silly, your comments are always welcome. And I'm sure that knowing your situation helps others be a little more patient with the presentation.
I just came across your blog, and I find it fantastic. A few things:1. Chess - sorry to hear about your plight and situation. I practice medicine and know that though rare, the tendon issue with Levaquin, (and indeed any of the fluoroquinolone drug class) is extremely malignant and devastating. I witnessed myself a patient have a spontaneous achilles tendon rupture sadly. But I admire that you still bother to post on the internet, and would hope that you continue to do so. 2. Regarding the video, I myself find issue with religion, but have no issues with other people believing in religion or choosing to practice them. It's called individuality and it's what makes people unique. Faith can come in many forms, but it does seem that Obama is pushing the Catholic Church a little much. It's one thing to believe in your own views, but forcing another religion to do something they do not want to is essentially tyranny (example Contraception). Anyway, slight digression but I will stay tuned to your blog.
No pity party.You all are very kind....i will try to be better but will never get to where Mike would like..a large part of my pessimism towards my life and this country is what happened. I went from running 3.5 miles/day and lifting weights to having trouble opening jar lids..It saved my life but man oh man.The really bad thing is that the alternative medication for this was a drug called Vancomycin. I had been round that crap for 20 years in open heart surgery. So I thought i was getting the lesser of 2 evils..Sorta funny how we sometimes have Monty Hall in front of us and you are so sure you want door no. 2 instead of the cash he has.....I had platelet concentrate injected into both feet x 3 a year ago and it helped alot..I am now on an elliptical . I do that to get exercise but with less stress on the achilles. Cant swim for the shoulders.No lawsuits cause the infectious disease dude who did it had been a friend at the hospital for a decade. He didn't know any better..There was no warning then..and the saying "money can't buy you happiness is really true".I could have 100 mil and still wouldn't be able to play a round of golf..In 25 years of high risk anesthesia I had 1 friend die of fulminent hepatitis and another have to be on aids meds for a year cause of needle stick from HIV pt..He was fine but you have to go home and tell your wife you need condoms for at least 6 months of negative conversion.So now when I am at a happy hr and someone says doctors make to much I ask 1 simple question----- the last time you had a paper cut was the 1st thing in your mind "oh my God I am dead".. Tom you also are kind.. when you go a few days recharging your mind i will go off subject... you can always just swipe it if need be...If the stuff you put on sways 1 vote and then we forward it and that sways 10 votes and so on then I will have hope....thank you all for your hard work and making my brain work harder in an area that was neglected for a long long time.
ChessI am officially an a&#hole with a foot in my mouth. I like the content on this blog and the perspective Tom and others bring to the table. I also hope you continue to post, not out of pity for the tough situation you are in but because of the experience you have and the education you worked for. Don’t worry if the syntax is rough around the edges, I still want to hear what you have to say.
Thank you mike.... you are not an asshole...I had worked around alot of liberal doctors for most of my life and when i found Tom i almost pissed in my pants...It was like thinking i was the last Dodo bird out there and realizing that there are alot of other Dodos around.(sorry guys you know what i mean).So I do get excited when Tom posts stuff that makes me think about anything other than medicine.Also the more i hunt and peck the more I look at the pecking and think I am a dyslexic typer???hmmm.Could be the bourbon... Thanx again Mike.ill try harder too...
DAMMIT...Its always those dam I's in middle of a sentence...I'll get the hang of some of this..I type like I wrote on anesthesia records..Comes out looking like The Dead Sea Scrolls.
Tom. Once again you are ahead of the curve.. Notre Dame and alot of others are now suing BHO and company ...The guy is like one big shit magnet ....and he still thinks everyone else is wrong.Jesus.............
