View Diary: Proctologist refuses to treat Republican voters (268 comments)

  •  To be serious for a minute... (6+ / 0-)

    Here's my concern.

    What if this starts catching on?  What if other doctors, or other owners of businesses, start posting similar signs?

    And here's another question for you all to eloquently answer; how is this any different than Dr. Tinkle posting a sign that says:

    "If you're homosexual...seek urologic care elsewhere."

    "If you're Jewish...seek urologic care elsewhere."

    "If you're African-American...seek urologic care elsewhere."

    But hey, that would be okay too, because if you fight through your disgust and revulsion, Dr. Tinkle is still willing to treat you!  So he's not REALLY breaking the law (wink!)

    Why do Republican urologists from Florida hate America?

      DID say that... most gay, black or Jewish voters are Democrats who voted for Obama for president. So he's basically telling only white heterosexual protestants to come to his office.

      It's extremely insane.

        "Separate but Equal"?

        Does the water at the "Obama voters only" drinking fountain taste the same?

        I know, I'm being a bit pissy (pardon the pun), but this really IS extremely insane.

        BTW, thanks for the excellent diary.

          refighting the Civil War... or trying to. I live in Alabama and we passed a bill the other day to opt out of the health care reform bill.

          In the Civil War it was decided that the union comes before individual states, obviously, and supremacy was restored to the federal government. It's unclear whether the bill the bill will have any force at all but some states really ARE trying to relive the civil war.

      some of the local business people write letters to the editor condemming half of their potential customers.  Just shows how stupid repubs really are.
