Doctor Accused Of Posting Pictures Of Drunk ER Patient On Social Media

Doctor Accused Of Posting Pictures Of Drunk ER Patient On Social Media

Commented Dec 6, 2013 at 16:57:23 in Chicago

“Normally, I roll my eyes in cases like this, where a somemone who wasn't injured is trolling for a big payout.

But in this case, I'm behind her 100%”

lcr999 on Dec 6, 2013 at 20:57:55

“It depends on if the "doctor" was there in an official capacity, or there as a friend of the "victim". The stoty seems to indicate she was there as an "acquittance" not as the doctor. In that case, if your friends take pictures of you while you are drunk, you either need better friends or less alcohol.”

“"For their part, fast food representatives say the eateries, which are largely run by franchisees, operate on thin profit margins, making it difficult for them to raise worker pay"

STOP RIGHT THERE!

It's not "...for their part", it's a FACT that the paychecks of over 90% of McDonalds workers in the USA are NOT issued by McDonalds Corp,

That's because they are FRANCHISES!!!

So how on earth did McD's become the whipping boy for this 'movement'?”

Ed VanDyke on Dec 6, 2013 at 14:07:42

“Such is the burden of becoming an ICON. Minimum wage (and food service specifically) are inevitable issues amid an economic "era"/"episode". McDonalds is a universally recognized and "commonly" comprehended entity. It's going to become a 'context' in which to debate the issues. -Mix in; a worker strike at Christmastime, and someone is going to get a "whipping". ;)”

“good god; don't you know that the people who pay the salaries of theater workers are NOT "Hollywood" people?

I guess I can't blame you if you don't, because nobody in this thread seems to know that the salaries of 90% of the McDonalds workers people are up in arms about are NOT paid by McDonalds Corp...THEY'RE FRANCHISES!!!”

Tom Hendricks on Dec 6, 2013 at 14:10:07

“So you are saying that if these protests were effective and everyone stopped buying from McDonalds, and refused to buy again until their were fair wages, that the companies hands would be tied, and they could not resolve that problem in any conceivable way - and that they would rather go out of business completely, then to find a solution to the low wages? Franchises or not - the head office could change all this.”

Tom Hendricks on Dec 6, 2013 at 14:05:11

“It's just not that cut and dried - the business is connected. The film company gets most of the box office - the theater gets concessions. If the film company changed - say actors supported fair pay for theater workers, then the theaters could get a larger share of box office. This is no difference than any company where the profits go to the top and the floor workers get so little. It's all connected in the film business. Let actors and directors be honest and say that they should make millions and theater workers go on welfare. Let's see how fans react?”

“ok, maybe 'agreement' is wrong; go ahead and substitute 'propensity' or 'inclination'.

Again, this is a good thing, particularly when a minority group is trying to establish a foothold outside of their traditional home. We whiteys used to use our "old boys club" to similar effectiveness (and to keep other groups down, i'e. Catholics)...but that's kind of fallen apart over the last 30-40 years as demographics shifted, religions mixed & things got fragmented.”

“What he said is actually very true, and not at all anti-s'metik.

As a plain ole WASP, I've admired & envied the level of social, financial and cultural networking & mutual assistance you see among Jews (and Asians, for that matter). They have an unspoken agreement to 'help each other out' whenever possible.

Many people complain about that, but that is because they are jealous...that they don't do the same thing in their 'group', be it religious, cultural, ethnic and/or geographic.

It's an admirable trait, and one that the other groups should work on achieving instead of complaining about how well others do it.”

OH...the restaurant has confirmed that they were paid the full $111 from the credit card company...but they're probably forging that, too.”

“Watch the video and read the original story - it's an unmarked, self-printed Visa statement, easily forged. Or, it was printed with a pre-authorization still on there (a typical thing in restaurants). The original story also reads that they claim it's the Visa statement.

“What are you talking about?

There are thousands of canned & prepared organic food products available. Do you think vegans (or people who only eat organics) buy & eat EVERYTHING fresh?

There are organic,CANNED/FROZEN/PACKAGED, tomato products, juices, vegetables, oils, breads...pretty much every item in any grocery aisle has an organic version available.

The nature of food production dictates that insects have..and always have been...caught up in the process of picking/packaging, and/or living in the plant being harvested. Organic plants naturally have a lot MORE insects involved than non-organic ones, so while both products (hopefully) contain less than the maximum allowed quantities of insect matter, organics are going to have higher levels.”

“In what universe are you citing tomato based sauces under "disturbing fast foods"?

When you click on YOUR link to the FDA standards, you see that they apply to the base ingredients; canned tomatoes, tomato puree, paste, etc...NOT to fast food sauces.

That means that a vegan preparing marinara sauce will have as much insect-matter as any restaurant (fast or slow). More, probably, as they'll be using organic products, which surely have more insect matter than product made from crops that used pesticides.

Misleading much?”

invmartyc on Nov 21, 2013 at 10:55:32

“Vegans who eat organic do not eat insects or insect matter. The organic food would not sell if it had that on them. What holds organic back is that it cost more and is not as pretty.

But it does taste a great deal better. For example a tomato that has been genetically altered, picked green, and radiated taste like cardboard. An organic one tastes like a tomato, imagine that.”

“a) Dish Network has better customer service.

b) Who cares about CS when Neflix doesn't offer ANY good and/or recent movies via their streaming service?

It's all freakin' TV shows...other than that, these are a few of their most current 'blockbuster' movies under 'New Releases: ParaNorman, Dredd, The House at the End of the Street, Possession, Escape From Planet Earth and Koala Kid.

Seriously....W..T F? I'd pony up more $$ if they offered an enhanced version where I would be guaranteed that they'd offer EVERY movie by...say...90 days after the DVD release date. Hel11, I'd settle for the HBO release date.

But as it stands, as soon as we catch up on a few TV series, we're cancelling”

evilpinklolita on Oct 31, 2013 at 10:22:49

“I agree. Although it's wonderful they have great customer service that doesn't outsource and you don't have to call them, what's the point if they don't add any new content and the stuff they have is mediocre at best? Sure they're "only" $8/month, but to me they weren't even worth that. But for the millions that love the service, I'm happy it's available and affordable. Competition is great.”
