Doctors ARE Crooks

Doctors are CROOKS and crooks of a feather stick together. I know that a lot of stupid whiny fat girls bitch about doctors because they make them weigh-in when the come to pick up their insulin or have their yeast infections looked at but weigh-ins are actually medically necessary. They are constantly on the hunt for a fat friendly doctor aka a greedy doctor who will patronize them. That said, most doctors and their industry at large is crooked. Think about it and ask yourself; what have these criminals cured since polio. Do you own research.

Doctors and hospitals routinely over-bill Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance. We spend more on medical fraud and waste than we do on national defense. 

The following article goes into greater depth about the criminal medical industry.

I'm actually sympathetic to doctors -- yet in some respects, not. I get into these arguments with them all the time: "There is nothing but your own expectations making you send your kids to private schools, buy an expensive house or get a new car every two years," I say. "You're complaining about paying for private school, yet you live in one of the best school districts in the state. What's up with that?"

One doctor I know (and appreciate, because he keeps his fees low enough that I can actually afford them) is always crying about malpractice insurance premiums and tort reform. "I have a friend in Texas who told me they capped jury awards there, and the malpractice suits went down," he told me.
"I really wish I had your problems," I said. "You're saying that because you want a certain lifestyle, including a wife who stays home with your kids, that other people should give up their legal protections to subsidize that. When you make it impossible for victims to file lawsuits, it means your profession has made a conscious decision to subsidize the really bad doctors. That doesn't seem quite moral to me."

Malpractice premiums are driven by other factors anyway. When insurance companies were making a huge profit and premiums were low, doctors weren't complaining then. Now, when the industry has taken huge losses in the market, they're trying to make up the difference. The problem? Capitalism!

"Plus, you guys do a terrible job of policing your profession," I said. "Remember, 95 percent of malpractice cases are generated by the same 5 percent of doctors." (I used to be a medical fraud investigator; I saw the same familiar names, over and over.)

Still, when I read about this study, the researchers didn't mention that when doctors sign insurance company contracts, they agree they won't offer reduced rates to the uninsured. It would probably be a less controversial and more popular approach to make those contract conditions (i.e. insurance profitability subsidies) illegal, don't you think?
WASHINGTON — Doctors are paid higher fees in the United States than in several other countries, and this is a major factor in the nation’s higher overall cost of health care, says a new study by two Columbia University professors, one of whom is now a top health official in the Obama administration.

“American primary care and orthopedic physicians are paid more for each service than are their counterparts in Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom,” said the study, by Sherry A. Glied, an assistant secretary of health and human services, and Miriam J. Laugesen, an assistant professor of health policy at Columbia.

The study, being published Thursday in the journal Health Affairs, found that the incomes of primary care doctors and orthopedic surgeons were substantially higher in the United States than in other countries. Moreover, it said, the difference results mainly from higher fees, not from higher costs of the doctors’ medical practice, a larger number or volume of services or higher medical school tuition.
Such higher fees are driving the higher spending on doctors’ services, the study concluded.

[...] The study examined fees paid by public programs and private insurers for basic office visits and for hip replacement surgery, and found that Americans were “very low users of office visits and relatively high users of hip replacement surgery.”
“Fees paid by public payers to orthopedic surgeons for hip replacements in the United States are considerably higher than comparable fees for hip replacements in other countries,” the authors found, “and fees paid by private insurers in the United States for this service are double the fees paid in the private sector elsewhere.

Five Lies About Gluttony And Gluttons.

TRIGGER WARNING.... The following article may be damaging to your fattitude. That being the case, I, Fat Bastardo, will make some edits.

Five lies and truths about being overweight

One of the first Sundays I helped out in my four-year-old son’s Sunday School class, a cute little boy with blonde curly hair came up to me and said, “Hi, I’m four. Why are you so fat?” Without waiting for an answer, he ran off to make sure the house made out of fake cardboard bricks was properly constructed. Edit by Fat Bastardo: My retort was, "Fuck you you little bastard! Just for that I'm going to crush your mommy to death"

Crossing out Lies and writing Truth on a blackboard.

At that time, I was not at my highest weight. I know I weighed over 350 pounds, though. To a four-year-old, I loomed as a giant. He left me to ponder my answer to his question.
Every extremely overweight person has a list of lies and excuses good and noble reasons they tell themselves and others about why they are overweight. They have immutable truth and logic because gluttony is good some element of truth in them, but they are half-truths. We tell them to ourselves so we don’t have to face the reality that we need an intervention a trip to the all you can eat buffet.

We don’t rattle these off to the average person on the street. I’ve never met an adult who would dare ask Jimmy’s question. I have, however, met many people who looked at me when I was morbidly obese, sighed, shook their head and walked on. Their unasked questions, as well as my unspoken excuses, loomed in my mind.

I can’t afford to eat healthy.

This is a truth an excuse I told myself for years. It is simply not true at its core. Unhealthy delicious  food is less expensive but, it is addictive. In the long run, we drink more soda and eat more bread, chips, cookies, ice cream, candy, pizza and on and on.

What is your current go-to snack food? Mine was candy. It was so easy to grab a caramel, unwrap it and pop in my mouth. Unwrapping is exercise, right? Plus, I’m only eating one. Which led to another and another and in a day, the bag was gone.

Let me ask you something, when is the last time you gorged yourself on apples, oranges or carrot sticks?

Truth: Buying healthy food for yourself and your family will cost you less MORE in the long run.

I’d be a bad mother if I didn’t keep snacks (i.e. cookies, chips, etc.) available for my kids.
As a foster parent to three girls and a mother to my own two kids, I bought a lot of groceries. For some reason, I had the idea that a good mom would keep all kinds of snacks around for her growing children.

I had two overweight foster daughters. Their case managers wanted them to lose weight. In the back of my mind was the nagging the thought that perhaps I was contributing to their problem joyous gluttony.

Enter RAT BASTARD Dr. Phil. I listened to one of his programs where he introduced a basic concept I had consciously rejected ignored. Don’t buy junk. Clean out your cabinets of all cookies and chips, anything you can grab easily and snarf down. Throw away the ice cream and candy. Pitch the pizzas. Don’t bring YUMMY junk into the house.

I did it. I cleaned house. After that, if I had a dollar for every time my teenagers said, “There’s nothing to eat,” I’d be rich. I admit, it did make me feel a little guilty. But I stuck to my guns and pointed to the fruit.

Truth: They liked fruit better hated the fruit and I was a cruel better mother for providing it.

I don’t eat that much.
After ridding the house of junk food, I realized something I hadn’t admitted before. I was the one who had been eating the majority of the GOOD junk food. I ate it without even thinking about it because it was accessible and quick the way food should be. High carbohydrate-laden junk food also gives an immediate energy boost, making you feel better. This goes away just as fast necessitating another fix. The more you eat the better you feel duhhhhh!

I also didn’t count it on any food dairy. I was fairly regular meals at lunch and supper. I was eating maybe a piece of toast for breakfast. If I were eating only those foods, I wouldn’t be loosing, but I wouldn’t be gaining either.  No, the food that made me gain weight were all the in-betweens, foods eaten in secret, foods eaten at a drive-through as a reward, sugar-laden snacks. And, it was a lot. I denied it, but my body gave away my secret.

Truth: I ate the majority of the unhealthy YUMMY snacks. Gluttony denial is fat hatred!

I need more food because I’m heavier to begin with

There is an element of truth in that people who weigh more can eat more than a smaller person. A sedentary person who weighs 350 pounds supposedly could eat 2700 calories a day and not gain weight. However, an obese person has more fat and only a small percent of fat tissue burns calories.

The remaining fat tissue does not burn calories.

I contacted the Dean Of Feederism and I found that the most a metabolic rate can vary is in individuals of the same age, weight and gender is 35 calories per day!

In order to lose weight, take the advice of a friend of mine who has lost over 100 pounds. Take the weight you want to be, in her case, 130 pounds. Multiply that times 10 and eat that many calories each day. She consistently ate 1,300 calories a day and exercised every day to lose the weight.

At that caloric intake she would lose 1 pound per week!

Truth: Eating more food makes you gain weight. That's a good thing because the fatter you get the more you will eat!

Food cannot be addictive.
This is perhaps one of the biggest lies. For me, sugar and breads are like a drug. They entice me. I cannot eat just one. I overdose every time. It’s not because I’m hungry, it’s because I’m addicted. I found I feel better and live better if I don’t eat bread, sugar and wheat flour.


I also realized I was a drug love pusher. My foster daughters had been snagging junk love food from the pantry after we went to bed.

Like any addictive loving substance, junk love food lies to you and says you can’t live without me. However, as the gatekeeper in my household, the one who bought and brought unhealthy loving food into the house, I made the CRUEL AND HEARTLESS decision to keep it out.

A good mother promotes healthy snacks, fruits, protein snacks, vegetables, loving snacks like candy, chips and ice cream to fuel her children’s bodies. Kids eat what we eat. It was difficult for me to realize I was actually contributing to my children’s unhealthy loving food habits.

Truth: Certain foods can and are addictive. They are not necessary to our survival. We can do without them but why should we?

Time for truth
I admit I liked the accolades of being the mom who baked the best oatmeal cookies. I wanted to be praised for my cooking. It didn’t matter if I was slowly killing gently loving myself and my children, as long as we were happy, right? Wrong. RIGHT!

I began turning things around for myself and my family. It was and is not an instantaneous thing. It takes time, commitment and intentional effort. Feeling better, becoming healthier, though, is worth every minute of doing without chips and cookies.

Am I perfect in what I eat? No, not by a long shot. I am still a work in progress. However, I have put some things in place to keep myself within the boundaries I know propel me towards my goal of health.

It all comes down to this, what do you want?

What lies have held you back from reaching your dream of being healthy happy?

Reason 478: Why Gluttony is Good

Gluttony is good for you


Eat up. The fatter you are, the less likely you are to get depressed and commit suicide.

Cliches only turn into cliches because they're true. Otherwise, they just become a weird thing that someone in a bank once said to you. So I'm assuming that this will cheer you up, because I'm assuming that, at precisely this time of year, you're probably quite fat. Or maybe just fat for you. No, no, don't go and change - you'll be fine going out looking like that ...

Scientists in Bristol have discovered that fat people are more cheerful than their thin peers. I thought this was just a revivification of the ancient (well ... maybe 25-year-old) wisdom that says you shouldn't go on a totally fat-free diet because your brain needs its fat surround to keep from crashing against your skull. That makes you depressed, apparently. But you don't have to be obese to maintain this fatty covering; you just have to not be anorexic.

Nor is this a reworking of the slightly less ancient study that found that people with notable self-control, people who weren't "appetitive", were more likely to be depressed. The usefulness of this survey was opaque. It appeared to demonstrate that hedonists were happier than puritans. Nobody needs a scientist to tell them that. They just need to study the works of Chaucer. Or Dickens. Or watch EastEnders. The people enjoying themselves are the fat, jolly ones. The people who worry about how they look, and what people think of them, and what God might think, and whether drinking too much mead will turn out to be a signal that they are bound for hell - those people don't enjoy themselves so much.

In fact, the new research is quite new. It merely asked whether fat people kill themselves. Are they prone to depression or anxiety? The answers were all no. Not only are you less depressed when overweight, it works in proportion. The fatter you get, the less likely you are to commit suicide. Of course it's possible that you could be getting morbidly obese as an incremental form of suicide. Research doesn't relate.

Doctors hazarded a guess that thin people made themselves depressed with the effort of keeping thin. It's feasible, I suppose, but there are plenty of fat people on diets who are making all that effort and failing, and they seem pretty cheerful. Lacking an explanation, we have to fall back on "comfort eating". This is far from being a sarcastic catchphrase, like "panic buying" and "binge drinking".You do actually gain comfort from eating. As Kirstie Alley, the Fat Actress (I capitalise because that's the name of her show, not because she's really, really fat), once said, "ain't nothing as lovin' as something from the oven". As a rhyme, it works better in an American accent; as a concept, dammit, it's true in any language.

Consider the pleasure that can be derived from food. There is: a) the comforting taste of something nice, generally with a heap of fat and let's hope some brandy (sorry, it's still close to Christmas); b) the more arcane pleasures of the gourmet, which are prissier and rarer; and c) the warped pleasure of self-denial. Naturally, people who go for the last band will be the most miserable. They have misery written into their DNA.

What makes this fat/happy curve so surprising is that fat people have a horrible time at the hands of society. This year it was revealed that they were less likely to land jobs, and doctors made moves to stop treating them for joint replacements. Next year it'll probably be even worse. And still they smile.
If there really is a direct correlation between body mass index and mental health, when, exactly, are we going to start charging skinny people for their own Prozac? Huh?
