2014 MLK celebrations…

MLK 2014 4 Dr. Michael J. O’Connell, PainCare, New Hampshire, noted the 2014 MLK celebrations on the National Mall  were truly a spectacle, or rather, a spectacular regurgitation of the usual and expected Liberal pap with a parade of left wing speakers from government (past and present) as well as of course the entertainment industry.

All of them predictably and idiotically implored our country to essentially become ‘color blind’ – as though by wishing color away, it would make it so.  Why did not one presenter, especially our black President, say what needs to be said….that the “racial problem” is not mostly about racism and hasn’t been for decades.  The problem is the “character” of the race in question.  Sure whites and yellows have a ways to go in attitude, and many white trash takes advantage of the welfare and social security disability programs, but this is puny stuff compared to the distance the average black must travel to EARN the respect of other races.  The lack of character and intergrity of the black population is a cancer that must be excised.  And, only blacks can do it.

Obama warned us that his speech would not come close to that of ‘the King’ five decades ago, and sadly he was so right.  Given the golden opportunity that could never be afforded a white President, Obama totally fumbled the ball.  Rather than taking his own race to task for not benefiting from equal opportunity and myriad other programs, but rather turning to violent crime, drug use and distribution, and illegitimate fathering.

Bill Cosby for President anyone?

About Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, New Hampshire
Dr. Michael J. O'Connell of Barrington, New Hampshire, has forged a distinguished career spanning over three decades, as entrepreneur, physician, businessman, philanthropist and healthcare consultant. As former owner, administrator and CEO of a 225+ employee multi-specialty medical practice, Dr. O'Connell has dedicated his entire professional life to helping patients with family medicine and especially those experiencing chronic pain and all aspects of addiction. Since selling his family of healthcare businesses, he has never once contemplated retirement despite his rich and fulfilling journey, but instead has turned his focus to consulting in an industry starved for courage and creativity. Having weathered many political, technological and legal challenges, there is hardly a storm he has not confronted, a tempest he has not quelled, an urgent need he has not met. While the talking heads and self-proclaimed experts in the field have assumed the conventions and standards of the times, Dr. O'Connell does not believe in merely reflecting the herd mentality, but rather in leading the charge. Eschewing political correctness, Dr. O'Connell says and does what needs saying and doing, and not what the mindless masses expect. In addition to the continual education afforded by his variegated life experiences, Dr O'Connell earned his BS in Biochemistry at the University of NH in 1975, his Medical Degree from Dartmouth College in 1981, interned at Walter Reed Medical Center in 1982, Residency/Fellowship at UCSF in1986, and finished his Masters in Healthcare Administration at UNH in 1995. Dr. O’Connell enjoys many outdoor activities, including rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking, and golf. Through the decades Dr. O'Connell has supported many non-profit charities to include the St. Charles Home in Rochester NH, the Tri City VNA and Hospice, Hyder House, and Cocheco Valley Humane Society. To the latter organization alone Dr. O'Connell has donated over $180,000 and pledged another $250,000 in the “Bring-Us-Home” campaign for a new building. His “Matching Donations Christmas drive” has generated over $175,000 in charitable giving from the community. In addition Dr. O'Connell has participated in many dozens of other volunteer and donation efforts locally as well as in Africa and the Dominican Republic.
