Billie Crystal…


Billie CrystalDr. Michael J. O’Connell, PainCare, New Hampshire shared that he went to Billie Crystal’s broadway show “700 Sundays” back in 2004 or so; “he was very good, highly entertaining and non stop for two solid hours.”

Billie Crystal talked about his life growing up, using a Sunday sports theme, glossing over the more difficult times (you could tell – he would make brief mention of something emotional and move on), then making the good, funny times absolutely hysterical.  Then at the very end of his production, after a final curtain call, he spoiled his moving, solo act by making a predictable far left Liberal downtown Manhattan comment about the man in the White House (George W. Bush) and how his orchestration of foreign policy (War in Iraq) was not to his liking, and the crowd roared its highly biased Liberal approval, apparently oblivious to how these comments symbolically disemboweled our troops and mission in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I see he has come back to Broadway with the same show and am wondering what his final curtain comments will be this year?  Will he include snide commentary on the socialist in the White House who has ignored the slaughter in Syria, failed to dissolve Guantanamo, commandeered more drones than a queen bee, pretended to ignore the ticking time bomb in Lebanon, North Korea, Sudan and China, has been so anxious to get his Liberal (no more wars!!) ‘arse’ out of Iraq before nailing down one single U.S. air base in the desert from which the ‘world’s cop’ – the U.S. – could have tamped down all of the Mideast hotspots, totally compromised the Libyan embassy security and then denied its root cause (yep, an anti Muslim film – sweet Jesus – or sweet Allah) and pushed through one of the most destructive healthcare initiatives ever.

Yep, wise words from Billy Crystal on the mean spirited, misguided George Bush ’04.  Hell, with Obama around in ’13, GW looks like he was Mensa material.

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.
