    I do believe that their evaluation of being dead last will change to being the biggest bust ever.

    crisis and geopolitical upheaval—it’s difficult to recall how the young candidate riveted the world simply by being Obama. As a mere nominee, not yet elected, he drew an estimated crowd of 200,000 people—in Germany.

    He filled a football stadium for his acceptance speech, a city park for his victory speech and, of course, much of the National Mall for his first inauguration. In October 2009, the Nobel Prize committee awarded him its most prestigious honor, the Peace Prize, before he’d had time to accomplish much at all. “Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future” the prize citation declared
    And then Obama went belly up in Germany. His "peace prize" was bogus.

    The fact that hes licensed has no bearing that I can see on the 1A. Hes offering an opinion and that is protected speech regardless of his level of accreditation.

    There is a potential ethical issue but thats between him and the organization that licenses psychiatrists.

    Yeah, good point. You consistently degrade and hate on the left, but that was presumptuous to say you're on the right. From reading your posts I could just as easily conclude you're from Mars.

    Yeah, he's the first one to do anything like that; let's take him out back and beat the **** out of him.

    I will not entertain the notion that Donald Trump's vision of the world can ever prevail, that one evil man can erase thousands of years of the evolution of civilized society.

    You do know that's its the psychiatric professional association's rule, right? Pretty sure their license is not involved.

    You don't want to know what I hear at pharmaceutical conferences.
    Your post was actually very interesting; I just found that one comment -worthy.

    My actual point to that poster is that dismissing something simply because the source is biased is intellectually lazy and isn’t a remotely useful point to make since you cannot possibly take human point of view out of the equation. Bias has to factor into determining the reliability of a piece of information but it’s just one of many considerations.
    It's unethical, absurd, insane AND factually incorrect.
