Do you realize that we are ALL from immigrants? The vast majority of us here in applachia all came from Scotland,Ireland, England, and Germany. Last I checked those were all in Europe. The only difference between the immigrants now and you is your family has been here a few generations longer. Unless your a full blood native American your an immigrant of you come from immigrants. Our ancestors did not all speak perfect english when they arrived here either. This entire country was built by immigrants. SO unless your ready to pack your bags and go back to Europe you should stop talking shit. You should know your history and where you come from before you open your mouth and show your ignorance to the world

How many graduates of local high schools in eastern ky. have become doctors and return to practice? Do a poll at the high schools and see how many want to put in the time to become doctors?The gene pool (because of drugs and inbreeding) are not producing intelligence people--they go to high school so to figure how to draw a check and to make and sell drugs!

what's funny about your comment is that I can name several locals who have came back here and practiced. Hell, one even became Lt. Gov. Furthermore, you speak of lack of intelligence and drug making in the same breath. Hate to inform you but it does take intelligence to make drugs and beat the system. The issue is not intelligence, but rather intelligence directed with the wrong priorities rather it be laziness or disrespect for authority. Heres a fact for you, did you know that there is a lot of countries overseas (I.e. India) that one can obtain an MD in just a few years? Now, let's poll local high schools and see how many local kids would go to college for three years to obtain an MD. You see, the reason foreigners come here and practice is because the US has a higher pay scale. The reason we have a higher pay scale is because it takes 10 to 12 years or more to get an MD at an american school. If the Hodges come here to be doctors, they should have to be trained and schooled at an american college.

I understand your theory but I must ask. After those immigrants struggled to create our wonderful nation, what happened when the British came to take over? Furthermore, at the time when you were referring to, was there thousands of Americans starving? Was there thousands without a job already? Were there a recession caused by american wealth being transfered over seas? My dear, I appreciate your logic, but I don't find comparing today's US to the first European settlers logical. You see, today its not a level playing field. Americans go to american schools to get an MD for anywhere from 8 to 12 years. Your dear foreigners can receive an MD in 3 to 4. Now, why would they deserve the same pay and benefits for 1/3 of the work? You see, I believe in the ethics of the time you were refering too (first settlers), a time when you worked for what you have. The foreigner's do not deserve the same pay for less work, but yet around eastern Kentucky there some if the wealthiest. Good thing that when the British invaded there was more people like Paul revere and less like you, those who turn on their own people. Oh yeah, since you seem to be an equal rights fuker who truly has no clue, here's a fact for you, did you know that Ab linc's first proposal to congress about slavery was to actually send all the Africans on boats back to africa? Seems very welcoming. Read your history book since you like to use it as a reference.

There is a law that allows them to work in this country and not be a citizen and not pay taxes as long as they return to there home country for 30 days. Ask one of the Indian doctors you may know.
Most foreign doctors start their medical training during their "junior" year--gifted on a fast track--also start med school their freshmen year in college! Foreign schools having more tracking into different areas of work by appitude and early elementary testing! Check out Switzerland, India,etc.

We are all here illegally, just ask the native americans! Oh wait, their all dead because they didnt want us here. This country is based on immigration, I dont like anymore than the next person but it always comes around, you cant slaughter an entire race of people, take their land and then turn into a little bitch when someone tries to do the same thing. We would have to kill everyone to make you racist mofos happy.
I agree with your post except for one fact. The First Americans, Native Americans, are not all dead. Native America and its many Tribal People still live.

Agreed, there are some indians left, and also many of the people we label "mexican" are in fact descendants of native americans. But my point was only to point out that we are all immigrants and we came to this land forcefully not peacefully. We do not have to be the same color, race, religion to get a long but as long as there are people in the world that presume theirs (whatever it may be) is better than yours, there will always be conflict, and someone trying to take it. We took from the natives, and eventually some country, group will try to take it from us. Its not all arabs, indians, koreans that are bad. It may be your neighbor Bob. Its the ones that will take another life, suppress the weak, feed off the poor to get their way. And believe me, I have met some of these so called christians that I wouldnt trust to change my light bulbs. Point being, there are bad ones in all races, religions, politics, hillbillies, city slickers. You cant demonize everyone for the acts of one. If you dont think this is true, than I guess them saying were all toothless, stupid rednecks with no future is spot on. Because its the same thing, one dumbass doesnt represent me or the state of Ky.

What that person stated wasn't a theory. It's common knowledge that a vast majority of us are (technically) immigrants due to our ancestors being from Europe.

The rest of your post is just babbling, irrelevant nonsense. If you're going to type a massive wall of text, at least construct your sentences properly, use paragraphs and decent grammar.

Well, for a person quick to point out grammatical errors you sure have trouble with reading comprehension. Nowhere did it say that most of us being immigrants was a theory. And another thing, you didn't have to read that massive wall of text? Now, sense your feelings got hurt, and you had to change your name from your original post in order to reply, heres some clear and properly spelled English for you........suck one.

Some of these guys may not be the best doctors out there, but some are great. However, we should remember that even the mediocre ones are doing more for our community than many of the locals do. If we only recruited white doctors born in the U.S., then we would only be limiting our pool of talent and would decrease the quality of care for the region.

You realize English speaking people weren't the original people to this country anyway. When Europeans came the majority of the Native American population was killed off thanks to diseases brought over or just outright murder. So unless you're a Native American, you don't really have much room to complain about different people coming over here.
I was thinkin the same... Thanks for point out the obvious
