    Re: Senate candidate under fire for posting grisly images to Facebook

    People would be surprised at some of the cracks made by aid workers in Africa dealing with starvation, mass deaths, war crimes. Their actions speak volumes, their cracks are a release valve so that they can vent about what they're seeing in a non-clinical and non-emotional manner. Having a crying jag all the damn time gets wearisome.

    I'd have to agree that this sort of inner circle humor should remain in the inner circle amongst those who understand and have similar frame of reference.
    A radiologist is not the same as the person operating the machine.

    That's one hell of an unsubstantiated leap there. At least I hope it is. I wouldn't want to find out that the US government was going around shooting a citizens with firearms with that large a caliber.

    Remember Todd Aikin? Hand picked as an opponent by Claire McCaskill, supported with campaign contributions from her campaign. Of course, the media never reported any of that, and unfairly hung the entire Republican party with it.

    The good radiologist obviously shouldn't have gone and done that, but I've also heard that doctors crack the worst doctor jokes during the middle surgeries. Probably a good thing the patient is out during the procedure.
    Of course things didn't work out so well for Mr. Akin so....

    I don't care what kind of inside humor gets tossed around the OR, but this was on Facebook and to me the worst of all was that he violated these patients' privacy. They weren't his xrays to distribute like that.

    Perhaps an uneducated leap - I was only thinking that 50 caliber is like a sniper rifle and usually snipers are government agents - could be shooting at hostage takers, bank robbers, maybe even in war zones although Kansas is far from a war zone, unless you're a male who donated sperm to a sperm bank, but that's a whole other can of worms.

    Yes, but the guy doesn't have the right to put other people's medical information on the internet. I'm not as upset about the jokes as I am about the violation of privacy (and a few laws too), then saying it's a "gotcha game."

    To my understanding, the info was anonymized. Whether it goes on the internet or into textbooks or into a professor's class notes, the information is not placed into a sealed envelop and forgotten. Maybe I'm wrong and the actual individuals are identified and if so, then this is horrible.

    The problem I see here is that the citizens keep clamoring for politicians who are not professional, slick politicians who measure every soundbite and triangulate every damn position against opinion polls and then we get these types of citizen-politicians who are not slick, who are not professional, who are not polished and what do we do, we criticize them for not being slick, not being professional politicians, not being polished.

    Dunno for certain either, and I never want to find out first person, but from what I've heard a .45 will make a big hole. A round or 2 in the neck, yeah, I can see that happening.

    I agree whole heartily that he should not have posted these X-rays of patients. Especially so if they are still alive. Given some of the wounding and maiming we are talking about, decapitations and such, doubtful that they survived, but then, why bother with an X-ray at that point anyway?

    It's not about being a slick politician, it's about having a little common decency and thinking before you speak.

    I read the article a high speed and missed this:
    Wolf, who frequently mentions in campaign stops that he is a distant cousin to Democratic President Barack Obama, has been endorsed by groups aligned with tea party organizers. He authored a book, “First, Do No Harm: The President's Cousin Explains Why His Hippocratic Oath Requires Him to Oppose ObamaCare.”
    So, OK, sure, he has Tea Party supporters. I really need to read more slowly. As for his heinous crime, it kind of makes me like the guy. I won't move to Kansas and vote for him, I promise. But I support the macabre as a form of general education. And he's peddling a book without even being more than a candidate. He's got spirit and he can make a few bucks selling his book. Probably won't be elected but he got his 15 minutes. He can't be all bad, can he?

    As for the "Obama is a tea party member? I was just messing with the OP. You know that I'm just being silly sometimes. I'm old. Not everything I say makes sense.
