    So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'
    Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor!!!

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

    Out of concern for the public at large, I withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

    It is true though, My father passed in '07 after being sent home from the hospital with a Pulse O2 sat of 68% and being septic, they said it was a common cold, go home and rest. He died the same night he came home.

    If you belive something is wrong it is you right to make you doctor listen to you, you know you own body better then anybody else
