You telling others to stop bitching is pretty hilarious considering you are in every thread crying about conservative media or the tea party boogeyman.

1. I'm not telling others to stop bitching. I'm responding to NC about one specific issue about one specific group.

2. I'm not in every thread, not even in most.

3. In the threads I'm in, I'm responding to other posters.

4. It's none of your fricking business.

5. If you had any intelligence whatsoever, which clearly your posting history shows you do not, you could have ascertained the above. So I'm glad I could be of help.

Go in peace and God be with you.

The main difference is one would compromise and the other wouldn't.

"compromise" means going back on their ideals, though, and more importantly, going back on the message that got them elected

So in effect Rand Paul wouldnt get a damn thing done.

i made a thread about this very line of thinking, yesterday. "getting stuff done" to many people means adding more government (often to fix the problems that government created). the whole point of guys like rand paul is to change things up and do things differently so we don't keep going down the same path

*ETA: i'm not even talking about what i want or what others want. i'm talking about the overall system

re: Rand Paul: I'm thinking about a presidential bid


There is a big difference between board certification and state licensure. Once you complete medical school (and residency, depending on the state) you are eligible to apply for a medical license. In Kentucky (I know since I was in residency there) you can apply for a full medical license after 2 years of post graduate residency training. You have to apply separately in each individual state to obtain licensure to practice there. There is no 'national license' to practice medicine in the US.

Board certification refers to completion of the certification requirements of the board organized to govern the various medical specialties. Most specialties require a written board exam, as well as some sort of oral examination to be completed within a year or two of residency completion. Many practitioners are not board certified but it is becoming much more commonplace as more and more hospitals and healthcare facilities are requiring board certification.

My understanding is that Rand Paul completed residency, obtained a full Kentucky medical license, and passed his American Board of Ophthalmology board examination in the first try to obtain certification. Later, he became disenchanted with the ABO after they allowed older docs to bypass taking a maintenance examination given every 10 years to prove up to date knowledge. Many specialties (including my own) require a 'Maintenance of Certification' exam every 10 years although this a relatively new requirement and many older physicians were just grandfathered in.

Your concerned criticism was directed at Paul and solely based on a presumptive unwillingness to compromise. I simply intended to highlight BHO as perhaps the least elegant negotiator since Johnson . . . Andrew Johnson. It's more than a little audacious to raise that critique of others by comparison to your man.
