    I also posted on the political board, but -
    I did not refer to Obama or McCain and the political side of it, I am interested more in how it is effecting us in the United States. Everyone else is posting here about their jobs and that is what I am talking about. I don't care about policies right now, I am wondering how every day life is going to change.

    And, no, I am not being rude, just explaining myself.
    Just posted on the Political Board
    a long rant on this - please refer to that. But also see this website.

    It's time to take a stand MTs!

    Take the political banter to the Politics board.


    As always, political posts should be posted on the Politics board.
    Posts about political topics go on the Politics board

    If you are talking about President Obama's stance, action, statements concerning offshoring - it is political.  It goes on the Politics board.

    If you are talking about healthcare industries and what Congress, the Senate, the GOP or other leaders are doing or not doing about - it is political.  It goes on the Politics board. 



    How is this political? This is a state of living, not bickering political points. Truth hurts...NM
    Good for you - we're not all nasty on this board

    Posts deleted. Thread turned political. Take political
    discussion to the Politics forums.
    FWIW, nasty is in the eye of the beholder and you have given nasty as good as you got.
    Read your posts again very carefully.
    Not to make this political, but...
    Next time you vote for the Democrats, please realize that the ACLU has their hands ALL OVER the Democratic party, and the ACLU will fight to the end for the rights of those such as child molesters.  Just Google the case about the boy in Massachusetts who was killed by a pedophile who frequented the NAMBLA website, which actually gives tips and information on how to gain access to little boys and actually condones sexual relations between men and boys.  While neither political party is perfect, I find the actions of the ACLU more of than not to be unacceptable and I don't want anything to do with them.  They used to do good work for the rights of others, they've now swung WAY too far in the other direction to the point of "stupid", especially when it comes to the rights of obvious criminals who would harm our children.
    My political views
    You need to take my political views with a grain of salt.  I really don't know enough about politics to even be on here running my mouth.  Furthermore, I don't hate President Bush, I do so enjoy picking on him; but I know he has a very difficult job, and I bet money he is a lot smarter than me.
    Bono political and
    political? I think this is pertaining to life
    I think this turned into whether or not you spank your child not what is happening in the schools/govt.
    The posts that were removed were political. (SM)
    It started discussion about which President was at fault for what and political views.

    Stop jumping to conclusions over a reminder.
    Political correctness goes a long way
    Not political but re Senator Kennedy's OP:

    Wouldn't that have been a great one to transcribe?  Not because of who it is, but just due to the type of the surgery he had--open brain surgery with intermittent wakeful testing.  I've been an MT for about 27 years, majority in acute care (now clinic--boring), and I absolutely love doing OPs.  I really enjoy doing long, complicated, interesting operative reports like I'm sure this one was. 

    Gruesome?  Maybe , but well wishes to the senator in any case.


    Ahh, your post sounds political
    Why not keep the snappy remarks to the other board? I doubt he was the original one to think this up. Get over it.
    I'm not the other poster, but speaking of TV and political correctness.
    I can't stand those stupid shows where the guys are just big dumb oxen that everyone belittles and puts down.  I won't watch the old TV shows where women were portrayed as ignorant either.  Especially Archie Bunker.  I see no humor in that character.  Lately, all the men on TV are gay and the women are all foulmouthed tramps.  I pretty much don't watch TV any more.  Just because you watch it on TV doesn't mean that's how society truly is, either.
    Are we discussing talent or political persuasion?

    In my unbiased opinion, I say Babs has a better singing voice.  I also think she's a good actress.  I think Celine is wonderful, as well; I just think Streisand's voice is stronger and a little better.


    Sometimes subjects spill over into political issues....
    It's not done on purpose, but it happens.
    Posting political and offshore topics (SM)

    We have specific political and offshore boards for those topics.  Please use those boards.

    We are not over-monitoring.  We are trying to keep a little bit of order here.

    The Main board is very busy with high traffic of other topics.  If you want to discuss offshoring or politics, please feel free to but post them on the correct boards.


    and gathering versus just reading ... hmmm.  Docs need to analyze their legal & political issues on their own time ... not mine or my family's time ... and get their S*** together before they dictate ... furthermore, when they need to save a few seconds by racing through meds & labs, not only are they compromising patient care and document accuracy, it's just plain laziness & thoughtlessness.  Of course, we should all be born to automatically know how to spell another doctor's name just because he/she knows how ... their 2-3 seconds they save in spelling is worth more than a half hour of my time having to research it.

    AAMT is endorsing political candidates, oh boy, that can only mean trouble.
    DixieDew, I don't always agree with your political views, but you're right on the money in thi

    The political people knew what could happen if a hurricane hit New Orleans. sm
    after 9/11 they diverted the money for the war.  One should not take money from one project to do another.  This tragedy didn't make any sense and there are some people on the political board that says its the mayor fault.  What a joke.
    Let's not turn an innocent poll into a political bantering free for all.
    People are allowed to post who they feel a good female role model is, however, if you want to start up political banter, take it to the Politics board.
    To the poster below who equates the BIble Belt with political views

    A CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor. Then you covet it.

    A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor. You form a cooperative to tell him how to manage his.

    A DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into office who tax your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous. Barbra Streisand sings for you.

    A REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So?

    A COMMUNIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk. You wait in line for hours to get it. It is expensive and sour.

    A FASCIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you the milk. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage which ultimately blows up the cows.

    CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

    DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

    BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.

    AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, lease it back to yourself and do an IPO on the 2nd one. You force the two cows to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when one cow drops dead. You spin an announcement to the analysts that you have reduced your expenses. Your stock goes up.

    A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows. You go to lunch. Life is good.

    A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. They learn to travel on unbelievably crowded trains. Most are at the top of their class at cow school.

    A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You re-engineer them so they are all blond, drink lots of beer, give excellent quality milk, and run a hundred miles an hour. Unfortunately they also demand 13 weeks of vacation per year.

    AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows but you don't know where they are. While ambling around, you see a beautiful woman. You break for lunch. Life is good.

    A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You have some more vodka. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka. You produce your 10th, 5-year plan in the last 3 months. The Mafia shows up and takes over however many cows you really have.

    A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge for storing them for others. If they give milk, you tell no one.

    A BRAZILIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You enter into a partnership with an American corporation. Soon you have 1000 cows. You expropriate them. The American corporation goes chapter 11.

    AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship them.


    after being nasty, now you want to
    know which office? I think not, to tell YOU.
    Nasty, not me!!!
    It got nasty
    Those posts got pretty nasty between a few people.  I have strong convictions about a lot of things but I would not have come across as some do on this board.  I often feel that when someone comes across like that it usually means that there has been a problem in that area  -- he who does protest too much. But we all do have a right to our own opinions and I try to look at everyone's.  I understand where having a glass of wine is not someone's cup of tea but because I do (and maybe not every one can keep it in moderation) does not mean I am unprofessional, irresponsible or not capable of doing my job.  Would be glad to match years of experience, paychecks and longevity of accounts with any of you that called me unprofessional, irresponsible and uncapable of doing my job.    Patti
    who got nasty?

    I certainly didn't, and nobody got nasty with me. In fact, it was one of the better heated discussions I've seen or been involved in. And I've been in the middle of some lulus!!! (but not here)

    You want sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows ... turn on Lesley Gore. 

    Don't let someone with a nasty
    attitude ruin your self-esteem about what you have done with your life. Just consider the source. They sound bitter to me and try to make it everyone else's fault. Keep up your good work and ignore what someone who does not matter has to say. Just be thankful you do not work for her.
    Truly, I did not mean to be nasty, but with the...sm
    problem you reported with your resumes not being responded to, it wasn't clear if you were just more casual here. You could just as easily replied there wasn't anything wrong your grammar. Having worked in human resources before, I know most resumes/correspondence gets 15 seconds to 1 minute of time. I have personally blown a couple job opportunities because I set the wrong tone with my resume, e-mail, and cover letter (jobs I really, really wanted), and I was only trying help. I have certainly been at my wits end in this business, too, and feel for those MTs who feel stuck in a job they're not happy with.
    Not only are you a nasty sm
    BEACH, but you have sand in your nether regions! I have never seen anyone on this board with more nasty bones in their body then you have.

    The reason you aren't making any money is because YOU ARE HANGING OUT HERE SPEWING YOUR BILE.
    I just had a nasty conversation with a
    telephone rep from India who informed me that all Americans were uneducated, stupid, and "farmers" and that India was getting all the jobs because they were all educated. She shut her fat mouth when I asked if that is why India still practices putting female infants on the hillsides to be eaten by wolves, why so many of their people are starving to death, and why disease is so rampant. They are getting to be the most arrogant bunch of people I have ever seen.
    Nasty women
    You know women should be supportive of each other. Let's face it, men aren't, like the lady said. I worked in offices where some of the women there were so nasty and catty and rude. Seems lots of them are on here too. Thank God for being able to work at home. I don't think anyone is looking for pity on this board, but for crying out loud, doesn't anybody have a warm heart anymore. There are lots of cold-hearted people on here talking, must be from the East Coast.
    Oh, please! Nowhere was I nasty or rude.
    Did I call her names or belittle her like a lot of you do on this board?  No, I merely asked how she knew she was being trained wrong and stated what my experience has been.  MTs need to be adaptable.  That's the best thing a newbie can do is to learn to be flexible according to the rules of the accounts she's put on.  Wouldn't you agree?  Honestly, if you're that hypersensitive to think that I was nasty or rude, you need to toughen up.  All I did was ask a question and state some facts.  I wasn't judgmental or condescending at all, like many others I see here.
    You are nasty!!!! You need to find a better
    maybe, just maybe that would help your attitude. Otherwise, but out and stay off this board. You are not wanted.
    My son just had it 2 weeks ago, very nasty.
    He was so sick that he ended up sleeping on the bathroom floor (worse than a bad hangover) with vomiting and diarrhea. It lasted almost 24 hours and he was horribly weak for the next day as well.
    just remember, the door of professionalism swings both ways!
    nasty email
    I worked for a lady who would send me nasty email in all CAPS and in BOLD.  Finally I asked her if was her version of yelling at me and she said "no, I was in bold and caps and forgot to remove"  Yah Right.  She never did it to me again.  I just thought How UNPROFFESIONAL! I don't work for her anymore and I am treated respectfully by my new employer.
    If this is just a nasty rumor,
    then some of the news stations on TV (notably CNN) are in big trouble, because they are reporting it as fact. They report that if you click on Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (and one other that I can't remember), you will be directed to other movies you might like, such as Planet of the Apes, etc., featuring black actors. This is all very derogatory and racially biased and Wal-Mart is falling all over itself apologizing, so it must have some basis in fact.

    Nasty QA comment?
    Dear OldQA:

    I am one of the recently laid off Heartland employees. I went to this message board for some job hunting and support in light of this situation, and I was completely baffled by some of the things I read. Here are 2 of many comments from your not-so-nasty colleagues as an example of what Im talking about:

    (Posted by MsAnonnie Mouse)
    First of all, I would like to say that I sympathsize wtih those that were laid off at Heartland, however, I believe that that there were probably indications that this was going to happen, I for one, remember seeing a LOT of job ads for Heartland and they suddenly stopped on the 2 major transcription job boards. For me, that was an indication that something was going down the tube.
    I also do not agree wtih offshoring, but when I read the posts on this board, I see one theme over and over; that being laziness in general. I see posts where people gripe and complain about having to work weekends or nights or whatever and wanting to get paid decent money, but they want to only be able to work 8-5 Monday through Friday. I have been in this field for over 20 years and I believe that I have always pulled my fair share. I have seen it in the company that I work for now, and the work load goes up dramatically on the weekends, because NOBODY wants to work and as we all know, medical transcription, for the most part, is a profession that is 24/7.
    Sadly to say, our society has become one, where we expect to have something for nothing. Meaning that we want the nice thinngs, but we don't have to break our necks for it. I hear of friends who are giving their kids brand-new to almost brand-new cars in high school. Heck, when I was growing up, if I wanted contacts, or a car, or clothes, I had to detassel corn or work in a fast food place to get the money to be able to have those things. I don't see that happening now, and in essence, that is why so many of our jobs have been offshored. Its not only a cheaper labor cost, but most of these people in general have a better work ethic.
    My company takes pride in the fact that it doesn't offshore and it will be a cold day in a very warm place before they do.
    My only advice to those that were laid off is to hang in there, send out the resumes and hopefully, you will be able to find a new company that will treat you like an employee and not a number.

    In Reply to: Heartland Layoffs - MsAnonnie Mouse
    Some people seem to be missing the point here -- I also do QA as well as medical transcription and I generally am working MANY hours a day and usually 6-7 days a week, because I know budget-wise what it takes for me to surviive.
    As a QA person, I see a quality of work that is totally unacceptable and it is from American medical transcriptionists. I read about people saying they can do X number of lines in an hour, or that they type X number of words a minute and as a QA person, that is usually the persons report that has 10 or more blanks in it, because UNFORTUNATELY they are more concerned about production than they are quality.
    I sometimes wonder how many medical transcriptionists go back and re-listen to a report they have typed and then are able to figure out what the doctors are saying?
    I have worked both inhouse and from home and I really have to agree that if someone TRULY wants to get started in this field, then they should work onsite first to truly get a grasp at what medical transcription entails.
    There ARE people who are medcal transcriptionists who DO work long and hard hours and ARE getting shafted by the companies they work for, but quite frankly, I am tired of the ones who have toddlers and small children at home and whine about how they can do this work and take care of their kids too -- just because you work at home, dosen't mean that your children can be underfoot all the time and it is also learning about priorities as well. If you were working on the outside, you would NOT be allowed to take a huge amount of time off for kid activities or family activities, so the MTSOs do have legitimate gripes when it comes to employees not working when they say they will or keeping to a schedule, and this is where I am coming full circle when I talk about a work ethiic -- it has slowly and steadily been disappearing over the years.

    Real nice show of support huh? There is nothing more disgusting than using the subject of layoffs, or offshoring for that matter, as a platform to complain about your own problems and dissatisfaction with your job. Shame on them!

    Dear Scribevibe: With that being said, you WILL come across nasty, condescending comments such as these (on this message board as well as when you're working). I have been doing this for years, and I still come across them, and they are OBNOXIOUS! You need to let their comments roll off your back or they'll drive you nuts. There are QAs out there who are helpful and even sometimes encouraging, but be prepared for ones who are not and IGNORE THEM (and their nitpicking). Don't let them "snark" you :)
    Oh I think she's VERY nasty, but I LOVE her! lol
    Hm, been my experience that QA's not usually nasty
    Only time I've ever used the exclamation point when communicating with an MT is when they have thoroughly ticked me off by completely ignoring my previous requests....
    Nasty and rude. You can
    direct people to the infor they need in a much more appropriate and decent manner!
    Don't mean to sound nasty but this is a
    are trying to get out.
