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?
Yes, I was indeed very popular.

No, since I'm a man, that means I'm his husband; we don't have wives nor feel any need for stereotypical gender roles. Do you keep your wife (assuming you have one) barefoot & pregnant in the kitchen?

I stated a simply fact- Veterinarians are not qualified to do ANY medical procedures on humans. Most of the ARE very qualified to do medical procedures on dogs, cats, birds, cows, etc.

What's racist about hiring & firing Vets?

Yes, the Vet I had to fire was a white man, but he was replaced with another white man.

Like in many other professions, women & minorities are under represented.

That is no excuse.

You had the ability and moral obligation to seek out qualified minority candidates.

It is obvious you are only in favor of entitlements and a level playing field when it is someone else's money and time.

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

<quoted text>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.
Lmao! It is you who show YOUR ignorance!
Civilians have GPs which refer to specialists when needed. Veterinarians are the same way, they are surgeons, anesthesiologists, dermatologists, urologists, ophthalmologists, radiologists, cardiologists,...for multiple species. They refer to specialists when needed.
According to you, the military has no specialists to refer to. And, you post that like its a good thing! Lol!!!!!!

<quoted text>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.
Yes the pay is less for a reason. Several reasons actually.
People place less value on animals than humans.
The few insurance systems set up for Veterinary care is not set up the same way as for human medicine. Therefore, veterinarians are not taking advantage of or abusing the insurance industry like human doctors are.
Malpractice Insurance is much lower for Veterinarians due to the lower value placed on animals. Therefore, Veterinarians do not have to charge as much to offset the cost of malpractice insurance.

If you are who you say you are, you know this.

<quoted text>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?
You really are stupid! I asked those questions because I already know the answers. I asked those questions on numerous subjects, because it would take someone actually in the field to know the answers, and be too labor intensive for a liberal to bother Googling them all. So, someone that doesn't know the answers and too lazy to look them up individually would, well, do exactly what you did.
Thanks! You make this too easy!

Oh, now he was incompetent? You said you fired him for cruelty to animals! What did he do? Show his racism/breedism by stating there is a problem within a breed?

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.
Bla bla bla...
Interpretation: financial success induces jealousy and blindness to the hard work that yielded that success.

<quoted text>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.
Read the first sentence of that post.:)

You need to learn reading comprehension! You try to twist what I say into what you wanted me to say. Re-read the post! I stated blacks are 6 times more likely to be on Welfare than whites are. Meaning 4% of blacks are on Welfare while 0.7% of whites are. This goes back to my statement about there being a problem within the black culture Einstein.

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."
Well, there ya go, everyone knows doctors can't spell. They also know when someone starts criticizing typos, that someone has nothing of substance to use.

Are you qualified to perform soft tissue surgery on an animal? Are you qualified to perform orthopedic surgery on an animal? Are you qualified to make a diagnosis on an animal?
I am.:)

You assume!
And I did not get beat out by a black man. I got passed over due to Affirmative Action. As it turned out, I got in the following year. I ended up with the black man in my class, because he flunked first year. Funny thing, when whites flunk out first year, they are not allowed to re-enter the following class.

Really? Seems to me you stated,"most of them are not qualified to collect a fecal sample from your cats".
My, my, I guess the post altering even applies to your own posts, when it is convenient.
Or is it that one mod troll forgot to bring his relief mod troll up to speed on what was posted?

No, I had the obligation to seek out the most qualified candidate. Which is why out of 4 Vets we only had that 1 white man; the other 3 were women or minorities.

Like I said, it's unfortunate that not enough women & minorities are encouraged to enter Veterinary Medicine.

Yes, I consider any Vet or Tech who is cruel to an animal to be incompetent.

No, the degree just shows the person was present for the education and completed the bare minimum required to obtain that degree.

I'll take someone with skills & experience over someone with a degree any day.

No, you may have a degree that says you're a Vet, but not one which says you're a real doctor.
