Insanity in the dental chair volume 6842:

Yesterday, Friday, I was unfortunate enough to have one of my long-term very creepy patients attend my office after not having seen him for about a year. The one plus of this pandemic is that a lot of the lunatics just stay home, not always for obvious reasons as you’ll find out in this diatribe which I am posting, but I digress.

This guy is a “retired“ professional who is one of the most paranoid, right wing, insidiously horrifying individuals whom I’ve had the misfortune to meet in a lifetime. And that’s really saying something. I walked into the room and before I could say a word he said I want to tell you something it’s very important. I’ve been doing a lot of reading and this whole virus business is a fraud and a fake. The vaccine which was designed by Pfizer is going to kill millions of people and this is deliberate.

It got worse, believe it or not, from there. I listened patiently for fifteen minutes, I won’t post the specifics because the last thing I want to do is promulgate insanity, but suffice it to say that even I, as a creative individual, could not possibly come up with this stuff. After he “finished “, I asked him: “So you’re saying that 200,000 health care workers are in on the plot?” His reply: “absolutely”.

Nothing further to be said.

instead of using Lidocaine or Marcaine, use KCL and get it into a vein.......Then let him sit for 4-6 hours before calling 911. KCL is a byproduct naturally released with in the body after death, and they will never think it was an extra bolus........

Oh, and get him to pay for the office visit/procedure in advance......just for good measure.

When I was younger, I had a right wing Republican Dentist who would go non stop while he was working in my mouth, talking nothing but a constant drivel of Repub good, democrats bad shit......he knew full well that I couldn't say anything back to contradict his idiotic thinking......

laid out this whole plan, and thanks to Ronald Reagan for letting the Fairness Doctrine die back in '87.

Putin is merely capitalizing on the opportunity of 'reaching' our far right wing, which is now far too heavily propagandized to bring back from the edge of the abyss. In fact they have begun lowering themselves down into the darkness.

51. True, what you wrote. Great image, too.

Details and the memo, courtesy of Greenpeace:

The Lewis Powell Memo: A Corporate Blueprint to Dominate Democracy

Additional important history to know...

Alex Carey: Corporations and Propaganda

The Attack on Democracy


The 20th century, said Carey, is marked by three historic developments: the growth of democracy via the expansion of the franchise, the growth of corporations, and the growth of propaganda to protect corporations from democracy. Carey wrote that the people of the US have been subjected to an unparalleled, expensive, 3/4 century long propaganda effort designed to expand corporate rights by undermining democracy and destroying the unions. And, in his manuscript, unpublished during his life time, he described that history, going back to World War I and ending with the Reagan era. Carey covers the little known role of the US Chamber of Commerce in the McCarthy witch hunts of post WWII and shows how the continued campaign against "Big Government" plays an important role in bringing Reagan to power.

John Pilger called Carey "a second Orwell", Noam Chomsky dedicated his book, Manufacturing Consent, to him. And even though TUC Radio runs our documentary based on Carey's manuscript at least every two years and draws a huge response each time, Alex Carey is still unknown.

Given today's spotlight on corporations that may change. It is not only the Occupy movement that inspired me to present this program again at this time. By an amazing historic coincidence Bill Moyers and Charlie Cray of Greenpeace have just added the missing chapter to Carey's analysis. Carey's manuscript ends in 1988 when he committed suicide. Moyers and Cray begin with 1971 and bring the corporate propaganda project up to date.

This is a fairly complex production with many voices, historic sound clips, and source material. The program has been used by writers and students of history and propaganda. Alex Carey: Taking the Risk out of Democracy, Corporate Propaganda VS Freedom and Liberty with a foreword by Noam Chomsky was published by the University of Illinois Press in 1995.

54. NAZIs, Klansmen, White Supremacists...

Perhaps these violent groups and the misguided people who comprise them hate and kill good people because they fear discovering their own true nature: they are truly the small and the low.

From summer 2020, a story and important context almost entirely missing from news coverage:

Umbrella Man: Minneapolis suspect linked to white supremacists

He set fire to the Auto Zone.



Source: BBC

Police in Minneapolis say a man known as "Umbrella Man", seen damaging property in the city during the Black Lives Matter protests, has links to white supremacy groups.

People took to the city's streets following the death there in May of George Floyd, an unarmed black man.

Police say Umbrella Man helped turn the largely peaceful protests violent.

Footage of the man wearing a mask and carrying an umbrella while smashing shop windows went viral online.

In the video, taken on 27 May, Umbrella Man can be seen breaking the windows with a hammer as people approach him trying to get him to stop. He then walks away from the scene.

My dentist told me this week that one patient almost swallowed his new crown because he wouldn’t stop talking, no matter what was happening in his mouth! So now he uses a “net” while he’s removing a crown that he just checked for fit. Needless to say, I didn’t say a thing, even with the net.

He’s a new dentist to me and did a fabulous job! And I swear, he’s almost young enough to be my grandson.

And you literally can’t get near them until they’ve decided tgat they’re done.

And to answer the obvious question: because these are the people who file protests with the dental board or sue and it ain’t worth it.

I don't doubt this retired professional, like many others who've fallen for rightwing conspiracy theories, were intelligent enough to succeed in challenging professional careers.

That's what's so insidious about the poisonous lies spread on the internet which exploit "conservative" ideology to mislead millions of otherwise normal people into beliefs that defy logic and credulity.

The lies and poison are knowingly instigated to serve nefarious interests whether it be foreign powers, domestic political operatives, greedy fat cats, or nihilistic internet warriors.

21. Keep a list

of patients you prefer not to see. Make sure who ever it is in the office that makes the appointments has the list in hand to check, and make it near impossible to find an appointment time for that person. Better yet put a sign on the door and inside that says no politics or conspiracy theories are to be discussed in the office and if they object tell them it’s your office and you will abide by my rules or they can leave. Kind of like a parent might say this is my house and you will follow my rules!

I recently went to an imaging center for ct scan and they had the tv on food network. They, in past years, would have it on fox or cnn.

I agree about signage in the office -- "No politics or religion discussed here". After all, dentists' blood pressure can be raised too, and then watch out!

47. That is GOOD news!

I started, years ago, making it a habit to complain if I went into a business establishment - ANY kind of business establishment. And if they had Pox Noise on their TV in a waiting room area, I either asked to ha e the channel changed, or, sometimes I’d just do it myself (particularly if I was the only one in the waiting room/area).

Sometimes I’d even pull out the “I was a news reporter for years, and the lies they spread on that channel are seriously offensive to me as a professional truth-teller.”

I wouldn’t tolerate it back then, and I STILL don’t tolerate it now.

I’ve found that most proprietors are willing to accommodate a paying customer (or a perceived paying customer). The only time it failed was at a restaurant at the Camarillo Airport where the maitre d confessed that the owner insisted on keeping Pox Noise on the big screen TV on the wall in the entryway of the restaurant. It was the first thing you saw as you approached whoever was there seating people. And I thanked the maitre d and asked him to tell the owner how he lost a customer and all her friends permanently - for THAT one reason. CONSEQUENCES!!! CONSEQUENCES FOR BAD BEHAVIOR!!!

And for the record, I’ve always been polite about it. Always. With a smile. It can disarm, at times.

Then the guy starts in on how we shouldn't need masks & blah, blah...
After I said as above, I said "You work for me. Do your job, shut up & get out.". He didn't even bring me the bill. His assistant did.

30. I'm an attorney from South Jersey and have been floored by many of my colleagues who are smart,

successful attorneys who have the same beliefs you mention about your patient. You would think someone trained in the law would recognize the threat to our democracy posed by Trump and could recognize the lies about the pandemic. Actually, I started to notice just how many of fellow attorneys from a solid blue state like NJ supported “W’s” presidency which also baffled me as the lies started in ernest with his administration. The Obama came along and you would think that they would recognize his brilliance even if you didn’t agree with his policies. I reasoned that they were racists. My brother-in-law is an uneducated but extremely successful builder and is worth a lot of money. He has gone full Q to the point I stopped engaging with him before the 2020 election. He did say one thing that I now believe to be true. He said that Obama presidency was the worse thing to happen to race relations in our country. I sneered at him but time has proven he was correct. While we on the left saw Obama for what he is, a brilliant, moral man who epitomizes the American dream and saved our country, the Right couldn’t handle having a black man in the Oval Office and it drove them over a cliff to the point they would support the likes of Trump who embodies everything that is wrong with our country.

supported djt for some nefarious and hateful reasons (racist and couldn't stand being upstaged by a far better man, that B. Obama is).

Maybe these hypocrites will learn their lessons one day, but I suspect not.

However, one bright spot with regards to these idiots...they are being taken down right and left as we speak. They are being fired, their attacks against minorities (Asians lately) are being countered and Asians are being protected by a majority of Americans (e.g., in NYC), numerous lawsuits to overthrow these ridiculous and numerous attempts by the repugs to restrict voter participation in the election process, etc.

I may sound like a broken record here -- perhaps an old LP from the 1960s -- but I consider Dr. Bandy Lee's newest book essential reading in order to put the insanity we are witnessing into context. Your encounter was with the fruit of a crop that Trump implanted in the lower depths of human consciousness.

As a youth in those 1960s, I remember hearing old men say, "This ain't the country I grew up in." These days, I know what they meant.

63. You will enjoy the book.

"Profile of a Nation: Trump's Mind, America's Soul" is essential reading.

37. I enjoy your posts as windows into what's out there.

Have you ever thought of writing a book? Like Tales from the City? Tales from the Chair? Wait, maybe not that...

39. Well, I got the Pfizer jabs and if it killed me, my reincarnation is a re-run.

To be honest, I'd hoped for something a little more serene.

40. "So, I ask you....what seems more likely here?"

"That there is a conspiracy involving what might well be a million or more people, all in on it and never breathing a word of it....or that the cheese has finally slipped all the way off your cracker and fallen to the floor, where it was eaten by a rabid rat?"

"I'm going with the cheese and rat thing."

48. Patient? He sounds like my college roommate who is...

...a dentist.

Not the Covid “hoax” crap, but everything else from the Reich-wing’s Noise and Rage Machine. Some of his friends are also dentists and they share their Reich-wing delusions CONSTANTLY!

49. I can't tell you how much I enjoy it when you share these stories.

Living in a red hell hole, there are very few people in my circle with whom to share the atrocious experiences that are constantly in our faces. Knowing other people of sound mind are subjected to the same hate filled, delusional diatribes lightens my load. I'm hoping that sharing is cathartic for you in some small way.

Or is it just plain old stupidity? Or is it some kind of brain washing? I despair.

61. I'd ask "What do you mean by "a lot of reading"?

Probably some tweets, lots of Fox and hate radio, maybe two or three websites.

All these folks who rant about their "research" wouldn't know a peer reviewed paper if it jumped down their throat and ripped out their lungs.

64. 'intellect' is not keeping these people

from wandering off into the weeds. My circle keeps talking about 'intelligence' and education (and I'm all in for doubling down on education) -- but the only thing that is going to rein these types in is a shock collar and a rubber room.

Can’t do that under any circumstances.

69. Thank you for saying this.

I hate it when people make jokes (or what passes for jokes) about stuff like that. It's not the least bit funny. Not the least, tiny, little bit. 😬

68. Sounds like a good candidate

For a total scaling and root planing. I had the procedure (basically slice the gums open and scrape to roots) done in two sessions. Absolute worst experience of my life.

Of course I am kidding, but one can fantasize.

76. I don't know how anyone, dentists, doctors, etc deal with clients like this

My sister-in-law is a hair stylist and bit her tongue for years with some of her clients until the second year or so of Trump. There were a few clients that, she didn't argue with, but begged them just to turn off Fox and listen to Rachel Maddow for a couple weeks... It actually worked with a few of them. They didn't turn into raging liberals but they started seeing Trump for what he is.

and or instruments are in my mouth, hard to talk around that.
