Does your ass hurt from all the B.S. you're pulling out of it?

Vets aren't qualified to treat even a hangnail on a human.

Most of them are barely qualified to collect a fecal sample from my cats to check for worms!
Lmao!!!!
You must have been mr. or ms. Popularity at the Veterinary Hospital in which you were employed.
Hurting asses, fecal sample collection? I guess it's to be expected. I'm assuming since you refer to your partner as your husband, you play the role of the wife.

Btw, you may want to add IMO before posting such misleading, untrue information about Veterinarians. Also, its funny that you have and post such views about a certain group only to bash others for less, calling them racists. Especially when they post facts as opposed to you posting opinion. Does your mirror have "HYPOCRITE" etched into it?

I sincerely doubt you've had all those jobs because I don't think you would have passed any of those tests. Even a minority would have to know something before they were given the job ahead of qualified candidates. I doubt you were a dental assistant because you thought cleaning dog and human teeth were from the same skill set.

Vets aren't doctors, they're Veterinarians. Just like all those other idiots who call themselves "Dr" simply because they have a PHD.

No, I didn't need a degree to treat war veterans; obviously you have no clue how the military works.

More of your ignorance regarding the military. Unlike civilians who specialize on one single task, service members are expected to be able to perform a variety of skills. And over a 20+ year career my primary jobs changed as I gained additional skills & training & responsibility.

You may be happy flipping burgers your entire life, but even most civilians change jobs throughout their working lives.

Admit it.......DOCTOR is the D in DVM, moron.
The pay is less for a reason.

Again, a Veterinarian isn't even qualified to treat a hangnail on a human.

So what? Idiots with a PHD in basketweaving call themselves "doctor" too; that's doesn't make them a Doctor.

No, I'm saying I performed the same work as a Vet Tech because I had the same essential skills, education, & training. One of the many jobs I had in the military was helping the Vets patch up the military working dogs injured by bullets & shrapnel; I also worked in a research lab where we did testing of new battlefield techniques on animals.

Correct. If need answers to those questions, I suggest you google them instead of asking me. Oh wait, are YOU the incompetent Vet that I had to fire? Robert? Is that you?

Did you not vote for Obama in 2008 when he was against gay marriage?
There you go changing words again. I said corporation, not hospital. I know the CEO didn't give you his job. Making day to day decisions for a hospital doesn't mean a CEO is going to let you decide how to deal with Obamacare, and decide to sacrifice profits if tax breaks were removed.
No, you are looking at it from an individual point of view. Your perception is that the owner gets the tax break because his signature is on the corporation's check. Those tax breaks allow the number of jobs that are available. Taking those tax breaks reduces profits and therefore reduces jobs. That owner files a personal tax return as well. He doesn't get those tax breaks on his personal return.
Yes, I voted for Obama in '08 because McCain was even WORSE on equal rights, plus just about everything else.

And I never claimed to run the corporation.

Businesses decide RIGHT NOW whether to enrich the owners or grow their companies through their employees. Removing tax breaks would just be an EXCUSE for those owners who believe enriching themselves is more important than their employees or even the long term success of their company.

Reducing profits doesn't require reductions in employees.

SOME greedy business owners who are only concerned about maintaining their multimillion dollar life style will take that approach; many others don't.

No, saying blacks are 6 times more likely is not an interpretation any more than 6 x 1 = 6 is an interpretation.
Then why did you say in post #2311- "Are you saying that interpretation is wrong"?

The stats may indicate that 6 times MORE blacks than whites on are welfare as a percentage of their overall population.

It DOES NOT say blacks are 6 time MORE LIKELY to be on welfare.

Again, if you can't understand the difference between "more" and "more likely", then it's not surprising you now say it's not an interpretation right after you just got done asking me if your interpretation was wrong.

You are a T total dumbass! I have Dr. In front of my name. Lmao!
There are numerous types of doctors that are not "qualified" to perform any medical procedures on a human.
So what? Human doctors know 1 species. Veterinarians learn all systems of numerous species. Who do you think is more knowledgable? Lol, I'm sure I know what YOU think.
Easy, the real DOCTOR is more knowledgeable (and probably knows how to spell knowledgeable as well).

You're right though, MANY idiots who call themselves "Dr." aren't qualified to do medical procedures on humans; including Vets.

Ironically, I AM qualified to do numerous medical procedures on humans even though I'm not a Doctor or a fake "Dr."

These idiots are too out of touch with reality to understand the best medical candidates are going to pursue a career that is more profitable than medicine due to Obsmacare. Hell, even existing doctors that are among the best in their field will likely pursue other interests and sources of income.
Said the moron not qualified enough to get into med school and got beat out by a (gasp!) black man!!
