Global idiocy…

Syria & ISISDr. Michael J. O’Connell, New Hampshire recently noted that since the bombing of ISIS in Syria as well as Iraq started, the second ‘biggest’ most consistent story in the media was…. no, not the shaky truce in Eastern Ukraine, a country invaded by Russians and a large piece of it, Crimea, was officially annexed to Russia; no, not the unpredictable, threatening, narcissist Putin who masterminded the land grab of a sovereign nation and who has his eyes on NATO member Estonia next; no, not the disgruntled lunatic who beheaded a totally innocent co worker, a copy cat crime, mimicking the brutal ISIS assassination of three journalists in Syria; no, not the lunatic cop killing survivalist Eric Frein, holed up in the woods of Pennsylvania…. no, it has been the wedding of George Clooney.   Are    you    kidding    me    ????

Sadly this is factual; a fact revealing the utter ignorance and shallowness of the media’s audience, and the utterly parasitic, or perhaps saprophytic tactics of the media itself.  George Clooney never has and never will affect the lives of Americans in any meaningful way.  He is nothing more than fluff in a brainless society that idolizes fluff.Syria & ISIS 3

The greatest threat to America and the ‘developed’ countries of the world is not global warming.  It is global idiocy.  It is not Muslim inspired terrorism.  As Pogo declared several decades ago, “we have met the enemy and he is us.”


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.
