    I certainly don't go to my doctor for religious advice. But it's not unlike my current doctor engaging me in political discussion when I go in. He knows the line of work I'm in and seems to think it's okay to spend an extra 20 minutes griping about Congress and the President. He's a good guy so I don't sweat it too much but it does get old.
    I agree, though what you said about being a "Turn off" for patients seems like that would be a good point to draw the line. If you can't be comfortable with your Doctor, that could adversely affect your treatment.

    I say death by firing squad and rid this Earth from him. He is a disgrace to the service and a disgrace to the human race.

    I would assume you could request a different doctor, if that were the case, and you had a legitimate reason.
    I would assume, actually- although perhaps I'm assuming too much- that soldiers suffering from PTSD because of being in combat with Islamics in the middle east might be uncomfortable, on general principles, being treated by an Islamic doctor of middle-eastern heritage.
    Sort of like rape victims sometimes feel uncomfortable with male doctors and request female ones.

    But again, maybe i'm making too many assumptions.
    i don't know what they go through or how they feel.

    Well, first off...the way you wrote your post was to have a firing line waiting for him to walk out the hospital doors.

    Second, I said it's being treated as though it's spelled with a small c... as in toilet paper. Bush's infamous line was 'a goddamned piece of paper'...

    Why would you be SUPPORTING of the patriot act ANYWAY, if you support the constitution?? Several judges had found it to be unconstitutional... sections of it at least. Not to mention my main grievance which is that they are no longer 'criminals' but rather 'domestic terrorists' if their crime 'endangers human life' and / or is aimed at coersion, political influence, etc...

    You get the doc that you get, in the service.

    Yes, you're making too many assumptions. Until this past Thursday, requesting a new shrink, because your shrink is a Muslim/Arab/Mid-Eastern person would be considered descrimination, in the military and therefore wouldn't be tolerated.

    Rights? Where are the dead victims rights? How can you defend this bastard?

    Doesn't mean you have to treat it like toilet paper, too.

    I'm not so much supporting the Patriot Act as I am trying to exorcise you of your ignorance. For all its flaws, it has some good legislation that can be properly utilized in a number of other ways besides just infringing upon your rights and privacy. For example, It has been used to make prosecuting drug trafficking cases easier.

    How many criminals have been arrested as Domestic Terrorists over acts that you think haven't been acts of Domestic Terrorism.

    I'll wait.

    You are totally screwed in reguards to doctors if you are living on base or in a military town. It is not as easy as just getting another doctor. You can request it but does not mean it will happen and if it does happen? It may be months for you to get that new doctor.

    You can't even request it. It just ain't gonna happen, unless you can prove that your attending physician has violated some regulation.

    In our brave new PC world, a doctor preaching Islamic politics just isn't good enough to request a new doc.
