I think the foreign kid adoptions are liberal Hollywood

Posted By: "embrace diversity" crap on 2005-08-02
In Reply to: scary part is she is adopting kids. skank-o-ramas never last. it still diminishes brad though. - poor brad

I don't think these kids are anything more than a fashion accessory/photo op for these phonies. I'm sure she and the other "stars" who adopt these kids for whatever attention/approval-seeking reasons have a full staff on hand 24/7 to take care of the kids when the cameras aren't rolling.

I doubt Angelina's ever been vomited on or crapped on (at least not by her kids anyway).

Hey rimrods!!! He fully disclosed he was foreign, it was foreign
trying to catch him telling lies when he already told you he was. Really smart people around here. Call names, insult, tell everyone to leave and go to another site and then wonder why your posts are being deleted. At least he's not feeding everyone a load of CRAP about offshoring. He simply told the truth.
did you see the movie Doc Hollywood?
it's about just that - it's sorta old, but so wonderful.
It's a Hollywood phenomena, I'm convinced.

Thank you crappy television (MTV et al) and even crappier movies for creating this plague of a language.  It's even up here in "crackerville" Maine.  The first place I heard it was when I lived in Lowell, MA...a mostly Asian city.  They had this gang affiliated with the Khmer Rouge (nasty nasty business) and they talked like gangsters because well, that's what they were. 

Before ebonics got this name, I knew it as something else..."Jive."  Oh my god, anyone remember the movie "Airplane?"  Kills me still to this day!  

From the ImdB website:
Randy: Can I get you something?
Second Jive Dude: 'S'mofo butter layin' me to da' BONE! Jackin' me up... tight me!
Randy: I'm sorry, I don't understand.  Does anybody here speak jive?
First Jive Dude: Cutty say 'e can't HANG!
Jive Lady: Oh stewardess! I speak jive.
Randy: Oh, good.
Jive Lady: He said that he's in great pain and he wants to know if you can help him.
Randy: All right. Would you tell him to just relax and I'll be back as soon as I can with some medicine?
Jive Lady: Jus' hang loose, blood. She gonna catch ya up on da' rebound on da' med side.
Second Jive Dude: What it is, big mama? My mama no raise no dummies. I dug her rap!
Jive Lady: Cut me some slack, Jack! Chump don' want no help, chump don't GET da' help!
First Jive Dude: Say 'e can't hang, say seven up!
Jive Lady: Jive ass dude don't got no brains anyhow! Hmmph!     

Originally I was going with a hat from Fredericks of Hollywood of all places BUT- sm
then I changed my mind when I found a veil I loved at a consignment store about 2 months before the wedding. So I returned the hat which I had bought about 8 months prior to the wedding. They were real good though and took it back (plus I told them I'd prove I hadn't gotten married yet if necessary). Glad I went for the veil instead of the hat though it was 90 degrees on the day we got married in June....hot!
That movie was Hollywood, not necessarily the truth.
Hollywood can put a spin on anything. You can't go by that. I'm not sure if this guy is the killer or not, but the DNA evidence should prove if he is or not.
you obviously buy into the liberal
rhetoric. That's bull. Most of the planet admires us because we are free and prosperous which is why we have so many thousands upon thousands who are trying to get in here every year. We also have 60+ countries as allies for the Iraq war. I think you are getting the word hate confused with the word jealous which is definitely the case with a lot of the Europeans because they know deep down inside that their socialist society is not working and never will and our system does.....
He is a liberal. Yes,
From what I heard, Republicans also lauded the movie.

Whether or not he wants to keep Democrats in power has nothing to do with the argument.

None of the facts in the move have been refuted.

We have a system in which millions of working people cannot afford so-called "health" insurance and people are dying. This is immoral.

Also what has "people who have never worked in their lives" got to do with this question on health care?

Can you imagine a situation in which you needed a surgical procedure to save your life or the life of a family member and it was denied for no reason that made sense to you - basically to save these companies money, would your view still be that health care coverage for all regardless of ability to pay is not the answer?

I can't do this NY more. Actually ready to go out. Try a little compassion though. It feels good!

Merry Christmas.
...does not make me a liberal. nm.
Yep - thank you liberal loony TV execs
for taking advantage of the captive audience of mindless sheep that watch the idiot box daily.

Starting way back when with "All in the Family" when it started by suggesting to us that we don't want to be like the fat mean guy who's sick of the way the world's going (make him look stupid and closed-minded, while Mike and Gloria are just so reasonable and "cool") to the Jerry Springer Show, MTV, and all the less obvious but just as effective little cuts and digs that are made on the more "credible" shows. You know, the shows that make it look like anyone who is sick of this crap is a toothless hick wearing a white hood and yelling "white power", this country is almost the whole way down the toilet - celebrate diversity folks - isn't it great?

For a translation of this posting, "if you prefer English press 1," "If you prefer Spanish press 2," if you prefer it to be spoken to a background of rap music press . . . ."
That's how the liberal loonies keep them in their place
Keep them stupid, uneducated and DEPENDENT and they'll vote for any free program they promise them. Pretty transparent.
This is another angry liberal loony
Gloom, doom, hatred, anger.

People like this really have way too much time on their hands.
There's the liberal New York Times for ya.......
Oh gawd, you MUST be a liberal... You all think you're so enlightened.
I never called anyone a loony -- heck, I'm a liberal myself. sm
My only point is, people who don't believe in Christmas, including those in the ACLU and all of the others, still want the day off.  My feeling is, if you don't believe in Christ or the reason for the holiday, why not work it?  The day means nothing to you.   I used to work for a man who took off for Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah (sorry for the misspelling), and I respected that, but didn't jump up and down and expect to have the days off too.
Who cares - he's a liberal loony freak anyway.
Typical liberal, start with the name-calling when you have nothing else
So typical, "Don't do as I do, do as I say".

Failure, uneducated, jealous, resentful, TYPICAL.
I liked his music but he's way too liberal loony agenda for my taste
I work for a hospital that is pretty liberal as far as formatting goes. SM

They have a basic template that they like us to adhere to as far as headings, font, font size, etc.  However, when it comes to more detailed formatting, they really have no set standards and leave it to our best judgment.

My question is regarding the medication heading.  Do you list the medications in a numbered list or in paragraph form?  I have a friend who is a nurse and she says the clinical staff, i.e. Nurses and Doctors like to have the medications in a numbered list because it makes finding them in a report a whole lot easier.  So would you list them even if the dictator is not saying "number 1, 2, 3,..."?

Typical hateful liberal. Taking pleasure in someone else's misfortune.
You're a real piece of work.
and how many liberal arts and science bachelors degrees & beyond are held on this board?
Associate in Applied Medical Science, Bachelor's in Liberal arts with emphasis on Psychology
and looking for a way to get out of MT before voice rec takes over!

Kids are grown and gone and I no longer need to be home all day. The cats don't need as much supervision as the kids did.

Oh, boo hoo!  Those foreigners learn our language so they can take our jobs and our money, you numbskull.  They aren't here to help us.  They take advantage of our laws which actually seem to favor foreigners over citizens, especially if the foreigners are "minorities."  (An interesting term since the only true minority in this world is white people.  About 85% of the world's population is non-white.)  

People like you who think you are so tolerant, are part of the problem.  In this country we would all be learning Chinese if the situations were reversed and China was the country with the open door policy and all the wealth. 

BTW, I lived and worked in Latin America and learned Spanish BEFORE I went there - I didn't expect the people of Colombia to pay to have everything I needed translated into my own language, which is precisely what these foreigners who come here to leech off us expect.

I'm an MT....slavery is not foreign to me.
Whatever it takes.
foreign docs
And why do a lot of those same ones who speak such poor English also make no sense in putting together their sentences?  I have several that sound like they are clenching their teeth together and straining to get the words out which makes it even worse.  I know exactly what you mean.  Their oughta be a LAW! 
Those foreign guys

Yeah, we've all had our share of "those" guys.  I worked in Radiology for a Spanish guy for about two years.  He thought his English was perfect, so anytime there were blanks he went off of his latino-rocker.  So I finally get this guy "nailed" where I can transcribe his reports just as fast as the others, and then what happens..  ? I lose the stinkin' account to VR!  So he still sends me work on occasion and guess what .... he's crystal clear NOW, and why?  Voice Recognition doesn't DO gibberish ... it trained HIM!  HA!   (Course he has to speak slowly now, losing lots of "billable hours"  And of course, they had to hire an Editor to clean up the reports, punctuate, and correct his English.)     Go figure!  ');>

Seriously, though, if you can't stay with that ESL day-in and day-out for at least a month, you will never get him.  Why companies bombard MT's with different docs from day-to-day is just beyond me.  If QA were REALLY that important, they wouldn't do that.

You all are talking foreign to me
I have ShortHand and love it, but you left me way behind. A Shorthand course would be great.

isn't SPI a foreign company
Maybe you could work for them.  They bought out Cymed.
foreign dictators
Wow, you sound so full of hate!!!Do you even know how difficult it is to learn another language? Have you ever tried to speak another language?

I don't particularly care for ESL's but...
foreign dictators!!

From one blondie to another--I couldn't agree with you more!

Drives me crazy, not to mention my so-called "productivity!"

What does the site being down have to do with foreign MTs?

Bonus from OJT - foreign dictators. (sm)

I learned OJT in a small hospital with a PDR, Dorlands and a boss with an attitude from &*^%&*^.  There were only about 7 doctors on staff, 4 of which were foreign.  I started off learning to cope with a Thai accent in a physician who had had a speech defect, a Nigerian, a Swede and a Czech.  It was a painstaking way to learn, but I am greatful every day that accents have become a way of life for me.  I almost prefer them to some of those mealy-mouthed speed demons. 

I can remember cursing when they would say "Go back up and change this".  Just rip that paper out of the typewriter and start again. 

My children can't imagine a time before computers.  Will have to take them to a museum someday and show them what life used to be like.




It's not the foreign workers who are at fault sm

The fault lies with the big US corporations who are the greedy SOBs that have outsourced the jobs so they can save billions over what they would pay workers in the US. 

So, to be rude to and cuss out these working people is not going to get us anywhere.  What we should do is boycott the corporations who are sending the work overseas.  Maybe if they lose enough business they will get smart to themselves and bring the jobs back to the US workers. 

I don't do foreign-speaking docs....
Either they speak English and speak it clearly or they don't have me for their transcriptionist. I'll be danged if I'm going to spend 15 minutes trying to figure out their dictation because they "don't speekee English," or they dont' want to take the time to speak it clearly. Let an MT who doesn't value their time or money transcribe for them! Some may think that's heartless, but that's just the way it is. I'm in this business to make money, not coddle docs who can and refuse to speak straight.
First Job, given only foreign dictators, and never the same. Doing allright, however, should I look
This is my first job, and I am never given the same dictator.  Also, this is hospital work with basically any kind of reports.  Only doing about 200 lines a day for 6 cents.  Should I look for another job???
Focus stands for Foreign

Focus is an Indian company, you know.  Most who have been there were not happy, and many MTs only go there because they are fresh out of school and find it hard to get the experience they need.  Just FYI.

I do have a 2nd job with US owned co. that I love. Foreign
It's shameful if the new owner is foreign but

This is NOT racisim.  This is plain common sense and courtesy. 

Aruba is a foreign country. Their laws
are different than U.S.  Father said "no body, no crime" because he knows in their system if they have no body, they have no crime. Therefore, they have to find a body...or they can't prosecute for murder.... Their laws, not ours.  That is what it is when you travel outside the country, you are under the foreign country's laws.. Really too bad but that is how it is.
It's the topic of the moment. You must be in a foreign country maybe.
There was a catastrophic hurricane with a devastating flood afterwards! A disaster of biblical proportions! Many people lost their homes, the worldly positions, billions of dollars in loss. Lives were lost, the poor, the elderly and the infirmed. We watched it on the news (it was on here in the U.S. around the clock). Try www.cnn.com for all the details.
I think MTSO should inquire of foreign docs if they want their

Like it should be standard practice for transcription services to require hospitals to ask------------------

Dr. Pammmmbogmamajama - would you like your dictation to go to India.  Check YES or NO.

Dr. Filiyambo - would you like your dictation to go to PHILIPPINES.  Check YES or NO.

Dr. MacIntiremeout - would you like your dictation to go to IRELAND.  Check YES or NO.

Dr. Chinese - would you like your dictation to go to CHINA.  Check YES or NO (we have to know they are creating offices in Shanghi as we speak)

Hey, I can deal with "the boys" from home.  But I'm sick and tired of  feeling like I chose the wrong profession and should be working in the State Department as translator and should certainly be drawing down lots more salary and getting a WHOLE lot more respect. 

That way we could keep the English dictation in the United States and have it being done by people who have English as their first language.

Ha! Those jobs they'll just import the foreign PhD on
on one of those work visas as they do nurses and teachers. Pay 'em less and put another American out of work.

Wake up, America! No job is safe any more.
Do you charge more for foreign-speaking doctors? nm
really?? Worse than the offshore foreign transcriptionists?
That's odd.
venting re foreign patient names
I just typed a long report where the patient has some weird foreign name so it's difficult to tell gender. The doc dictates as a male throughout, i.e. he, his etc. At the end changes it to a female.
Tired of these low class foreign doctors
They live here but they cannot learn the language.  Most should not be here in the first place.  They were admitted to medical school with the proviso that they return to their own countries to work as doctors and help their own people;  they got all these fancy or free grants to pay for their schooling; American citizens were pushed aside to fulfill the foreign student enrollment requirements for medical school to "help the needy countries health problems".  Then they got dollar signs in their eyes.  They refused to learn how to talk.  They are arrogant, sloppy, nasty, and are too mentally compromised to even learn how to push the right buttons to enter patient numbers into systems.  What pigs!!!!!!!!!!!  And they expect perfection?   I think we should sign every report off with a blurb saying unable to understand dictator, please return him/her to his own country. 
are you working for third world foreign doctors?
This has been my experience.
TransTech does this group, too. Awful foreign residents! nm
I was living in a foreign country with my parents, probably getting ready for
elementary school. Didn't even know who he was. I don't remember my parents mentioning it, but it was shortly after that when the stupid joke about "What would it take to reunite the Beatles?" came out.
My company foreign owned but they have US office people
Site was foreign built from the beginning..just listed at top only for US
