So sorry Doc you simply can not take your horse and buggy on the interstate highway. I understand it has been your chosen mode of transportation for the last 55 years but if you want to use the interstate you will have to buy an automobile.

Today the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the immigration bill. The full senate will probably vote in early June. Just thought I would mention this fact, since it seems this paper has no inclination to do so.

Choker “My moral compass is spinning.”

Don’t be alarmed. It’s almost universal for progressives. Take four hours of Fox News and call us in the morning.

checkthefacts: HEY, even though your vet may have computerized records, guess what?!?! YOU PAY for the vet's service dollar by dollar! NO INSURANCE! So instead of getting your Obamacare subsidized by those who work and having no concern that your $ 70K knee replacement Sx is paid by medicare and not out of your own pocket, YOU have to determine if that $ 4500 emergency bloat surgery for your dog is worth it or not. (Unless you put it on a credit card and then file bankruptcy later..) Your comments mean that you have NO CLUE of how to operate a real business. TRY AGAIN.

Maybe the good Doctor does not want to take part in the violation of individuals privacy as well.

My hobby is LOLing at people who post “your are” and can’t spell phony but still think they should be telling other people what they need.

So Butterfly, Big Government Progressives pass a new law that mandates changes in how a business must operate, exercising a power nowhere granted by the Constitution, and when a businessman can no longer remain in business because he can’t obey that new unconstitutional law you don’t see how Big Government Progressives bear any responsibility for that? Derrrrr....

And you call "obey or quit" a choice? Liberals have such draconian definitions for the word choice.

<Without disrespecting Dr Ventosa, he is responsible for his own choices.>

But apparently not his own opinion.

Without disrespecting Dr Ventosa, he is responsible for his own choices. He chose not to follow requirements of a law. There are many laws which are inconvenient for doctors, but they follow them because they were enacted into law or sent down from the FDA, etc.

Butterfly, find out who signed the bill into law that required Dr. Ventosa to computerize his medical records and get back to us on whether Obama shares any responsibility. It’s better when you base your world view on things you know to be facts and not on things you “think.”

<A black President, surrounded by "tree huggers", war haters, abolitionists and movie stars has compelled him to close his store and sell moonshine from the bed of his truck.>

I've also read that Elmer's 'shine' sales are down since the market shifted dramatically to *************, ******. He is now living in a homeless shelter, registered as a Democrat and voted 6 time in the last election.

I do believe the headline was a little much. Most of us in the working world have had to become comfortable with computers in order to keep our job. I'm sorry there is tooo much pressure on Dr Ventosa--I can imagine the discomfort caused by this dilemna, but I don't think we can say President Obama was the cause of Dr. Ventosa's retirement. Another anti-Obama hate-headline by the Wheeling newspaper.

Don’t feel sorry for Dr. Ventosa. He’ll be fine. Feel sorry for all those poor saps who actually believed Obama’s “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” lie.

...and deliver us from evil.

"Obamacare Ends Local"Businessman's" Career"

Elmer Joseph Schoonover sold snuff, shine and chewing tobacco to whomever he wanted for 50 years. He was a lifetime member of the Flat Earth Society and his grandfather was the Wizard of the Buford Sons of the Confederacy. Elmer Joe was home-schooled by his neighbor's German Shepherd trainer and won several brown ribbons at the County Fair. Now his career has ended. A black President, surrounded by "tree huggers", war haters, abolitionists and movie stars has compelled him to close his store and sell moonshine from the bed of his truck.

Oldman,

The White House Historical table FY 2009 Table 1.1 indicates a deficit of $407 billion for 2009, $159 billion for 2010, $94 billion for 2011 and a surplus of $48 billion for 2012!

So Obama turned a planned surplus of $48 billion into a $1600 billion deficit!

Bush, my arse!!! LOL

Granted the doctor may be no JOE BIDEN when it comes to helping out others thru donations, etc, but is fair to criticize him for what he does with his money without knowing? and merely stereotyping his profession, nationality, and age. This makes you LIBS sound like BIGOTS, which I know NONE of you are.
