Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 10/11/2014

Supposed you wanted to look up public records about any complaints issued about doctors? Texas Medical Board!  Karen Burroughs  Justus Peters - In fact, the Justus Peters one is so interesting that going to quote parts of the board action.

7. On March 21, 2000, Respondent and the Oklahoma Board of Nursing entered into a Stipulation, Settlement and Order requiring Respondent to undergo a psychiatric evalution. On July 27, 2000, Respondent's Oklahoma nursing license was temporarily suspended due to failure to timely submit to a psychiatric evaluation and to appear at a Show Cause hearing. The suspension was lifted on May 31, 2001 upon request of Applicant and after submission of a psychiatric evaluation that showed an elevated score for paranoia but no additional mental difficulties or substance-abuse indicators. 

8. In December 2004, the Nebraska Board of Nursing censured Respondent based on two incidents in 2002.

9. Respondent failed to report the Nebraska or Oklahoma actions on two postgraduate training permit applications and also failed to report the Oklahoma action on his physician licensure application.

10. The Licensure Committee determined that Respondent provided false or misleading information to the Board and that the falsification of the application was intentional.

South Texas Chisme- Voter ID laws in Texas and Wisconsin... BLOCKED.   And here's more from the Texas Tribune

State Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston: "Texas has a long and sad history of making it difficult for people to vote. Elected officials repeatedly used the law to keep people out of the voting booth. Decades later, history rightly judges those men and women in a harsh light. As the court ruled, the voter ID law is essentially a modern day poll tax and has the same effect as other laws used in decades past to keep scores of lawful, legal Americans from voting. It was wrong then, it is wrong now, and I'm pleased the court stood up to protect the right to vote for all Texans."

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, who is running against Abbott: "This is great news for democracy. I call on Attorney General Greg Abbott to drop his defense of a law that a court has now called a 'poll tax' and 'discriminatory' against African-Americans and Hispanics."

EFH Bankruptcy Bonuses

As Brantley Hargrove extensively reported for Unfair Park over the previous two years, Energy Future Holdings, the largest electricity generator in Texas, is a mess. Facing $40 billion in debt, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April and is in the process of selling off one of its most valuable assets, an 80 percent stake in Oncor, the electricity delivery service. EFH was created after TPG Capital, KKR & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. exercised the largest leveraged buyout in history against what was then TXU.

As EFH has made its way through the Chapter 11 process in a Delaware federal court, it has faced strong opposition to its request to pay more than $20 million, and potentially as much as $40 million, in bonuses to executives.

At hearing held Wednesday and Thursday, EFH presented witnesses who testified that the bonuses were not easy to earn nor were they given simply to retain executives, which bankruptcy law does not allow.

SO???? Tell that to anyone in ANY company where the place goes bankrupt-REALLY that executives should expect to get bonuses when a company goes under????

Kindergartener with pretend crayon-gun

A Mobile, Ala., mom says school officials forced her daughter to sign a contract promising not to commit suicide or harm others after the kindergartner "drew something that resembled a gun," then pointed a crayon at another kid and said "pew, pew!"

5-year-old Elizabeth was sent home after school officials made her take a questionnaire to evaluating her for suicidal thoughts, then had her sign the safety contract promising to contact an adult if she was thinking of suicide or homicide. This all happened while her mom waited in the lobby to pick her up, the upset parent told WPMI.

You know, when I was a kid, we had cap guns with those long strings of whatever that would go Crack Crack when you pulled the trigger. I remember taking those strings out on the driveway and hitting them with a hammer to get the sound. As an adult, I still iike *poppers* around New Years that you throw on the ground and they make a bang sound. I'm not a gun lover, I think guns should be regulated, but I also think doing this to a little kid in school is overkill.
