Pat Robertson is very upset because, when he had a medical procedure done, he was asked questions like, “What kind of vitamins do you take?” THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, PEOPLE! Getting medical information and “logg[ing] stuff into the computer” is how the progressives are taking over the country!!!!!![su_center_ad]

“Ladies and gentlemen, we need a revolution to stop these so-called progressives from destroying this country anymore, but they are getting pretty close to the tipping point, it is not a pleasant scenario,” he said. “I didn’t vote for him, maybe you didn’t vote for him, but the American people voted him into office twice and this is the result, we reap what we sow.”

    I hope when he dies they do an autopsy and see what if anything is in his skull.

    • RK Johnston August 20th, 2014 at 2:25 pm

      S.O.P. on all autopsies.
      Only when they pop his skull cap, they will probably find not grey crerebral matter, but reeking brown organic matter.

      • Dwendt44 August 20th, 2014 at 8:01 pm

        Why wait, do it now!!!

  3. RK Johnston August 20th, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    The reason that the nurse asked you that question, Pat, was that certain medications and nutritional supplements tend to advere reactions when combined during a “medical procedure.” And the reason she logged in that information is that almost all medical charts are now computerized, which makes it easier for the doctor treating you to give you the proper care.
    Your inner Luddite side is showing…and combined with your inate paranoia, it makes you look even more foolish than you normally are.

    And as for your call of “Revolution Now!”?
    You don’t have that much more time…so I doubt that you’ll see it when it comes (if it does).
    And caling for a coup d’etat over such a trivial issue as this is beyond paranoid…and would normally see you in a room in four-point restraints with a dose of
    Thorazine coursing through your veins.

    Quoting Dr. Phil:

      Pat’s reading scripture now. He will read your post later today, before his nap.

  4. M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 2:24 pm

    On the flip side of that coin, the catholic church owns and operates all the medical offices and the only hospital within 250 air miles of our little island. The first thing they ask you in the ER (well the second–the first is “how will you be paying for this?) is “What is your religion?”. As an atheist I found it incredibly offensive. I was at the ER with a possible broken elbow and was in a lot of pain. I was not at all interested in discussing the supernatural.

    • Roctuna August 20th, 2014 at 2:33 pm

      They wanted to make sure they were invoking the proper spirits for you. That’s holistic medicine.

      • M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 4:50 pm

        No doubt–i wonder what spirits they conjure up for atheists with broken bones?

        • Roctuna August 20th, 2014 at 6:40 pm

          The Spirit of Change? Spirit of the Season? Spirit of 76? Spirit of calcium supplements?

          • M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 8:21 pm

            Thanks for the chuckle. I was just lucky it was covered under Workers’ Compensation or they would have conjured up the Spirit of Really Really Big Bills.

    • Yenta August 20th, 2014 at 3:08 pm

      I hope you are male, because if you were female, they probably would have insisted on doing a pregnancy test before giving you any narcotic pain medication! That question would have offended me, too.

      • M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 4:50 pm

        No doubt!

    • William August 20th, 2014 at 3:19 pm

      I was once asked by a surgeon from India about my wives dietary habits, as she was recovering from surgery I responded with “she’s a vegetarian”. The good Dr. beamed and asked. “Is she an animal lover?”. I replied, no she just really hates plants”.

      • Yenta August 20th, 2014 at 3:32 pm

        That gave me my first belly laugh of the day!

      • M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 4:49 pm

        Thanks for the chuckle!

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:46 pm

      So LIE .. no one will ever know. You can decline to answer that question also. It is not relevant to your medical care.

      • M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 8:15 pm

        “So LIE”–really? No–I don’t lie, nor should I feel that I “have to” to be treated. You are right though in that it is not relevant to my medical care. That is why it should not be asked.

    • jasperjava August 20th, 2014 at 7:20 pm

      More than likely it was their general and subtle way to find out if you had any religion-based objections to certain forms of medical care.

      If you happen to be a Jehovah’s Witness and they perform a blood transfusion on you, that could open them to a lawsuit.

      • M D Reese August 20th, 2014 at 8:11 pm

        Yeah thanks–but I don’t think that was their motive and it’s none of their business. As for meal requirements, drugs and blood transfusions, as long as I am awake and able to talk, they could ask me about them without asking me what my religion is, and I could tell them. As it happens, I’m an atheist and I gave them an earful. I’m not at my best when I’m freaked out in pain and some asshat asks me what my religious beliefs are.

  5. arc99 August 20th, 2014 at 2:25 pm

    Any patient has the right to decline to answer any questions pertaining to their medical history. Any physician has the right to decline to treat any patient who refuses to answer questions about their medical history.

    If the triumph of progressiveism means that an electronic copy of your medical record with vital information can be instantly sent to a physician who is treating you for a life or death condition, hundreds or even thousands of miles away from home while you are on vacation, then long live progressiveism.

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:48 pm

      I think it’s awesome now that so many surgeons are refusing to do elective surgery on smokers!!! Why should a medical license be put at risk if you believe the patient isn’t going to make it off the table?

    • Larry Schmitt August 20th, 2014 at 5:51 pm

      You have to wonder what part of the “progress” in progressivism he doesn’t like.

  6. crc3 August 20th, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    That’s right blame Obama (rolls eyes). Robertson and Rush are two peas in a rotten pod and have less than the combined intelligence of an ameba…

    • MIAtheistGal August 20th, 2014 at 2:43 pm

      Hey no insulting amoebas.

      • gil reyes August 20th, 2014 at 3:19 pm

        please..some of my best friends are amoebas..

      • Yenta August 20th, 2014 at 3:19 pm

        Amoeba libel! 😉

      • Abby Normal August 20th, 2014 at 3:28 pm

        Q: How do amoebas keep in touch?
        A: With cell phones.

  7. Dave Van Slyke August 20th, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    It finally happened. Pat’s tiny little brain has gone completely off the rails.

    • jasperjava August 20th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

      That happened years ago. All we’re seeing now is the smoking wreckage

  8. MIAtheistGal August 20th, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Who wants to bet that if he had not been asked those questions and something went wrong due to that, it would also be progressives’ fault?

    • crc3 August 20th, 2014 at 2:46 pm

      Damned if you do…damned if you don’t. Right?

    • Yenta August 20th, 2014 at 3:18 pm

      To be more specific, it would have been Obama’s fault!

    • juicyfruityyy August 20th, 2014 at 7:03 pm

      No. It would be the Dr’s fault. They are not going to risk their license because someone wants to be a jerk. They will tell them to take their business, elsewhere.

  9. Chinese Democracy August 20th, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    Pat reached his tipping point long ago .. now if only he would jump the shark

  10. Yenta August 20th, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    I think Pat knows EXACTLY what he’s doing. This is just another variation on “death panels” in Obamacare. Since there are no ‘tales’ about real death panels, now that ‘Obamacare’ is law, the narrative will change. It won’t surprise me a bit if other conservatives jump on this bandwagon. I like what arc99 said below. Let these uninformed conservatives try going to the hospital for a procedure and refuse to answer questions!

    “I didn’t vote for him, maybe you didn’t vote for him, but the American
    people voted him into office twice and this is the result, we reap what
    we sow.” Yes, Pat…it’s called DEMOCRACY. We voted, and your side lost. You want a revolution? Well, go ahead and start it…we’ll be waiting.

    • Suzanne McFly August 20th, 2014 at 3:25 pm

      Hell, most of us didn’t vote for bush and had to reap that wrath so this “man of God” needs to quit stirring up dirt before he reaps what he has sown.

      • Yenta August 20th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

        Yes, and we are still reaping that wrath!

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:45 pm

      Switching from PAPER documents to Electronic Medical Records has gone on everywhere – anyone could READ a patient chart but you need a secure login to review a chart now. Physicians spend about 75% of their time doing paperwork (or computer work now)…which is all time away from patient care.
      EMR’s make it much quicker. If you are also supervising PA’s or NP’s, you can sign off on their charting much quicker.

      • juicyfruityyy August 20th, 2014 at 7:01 pm

        Computer charting has been going on for years. Some states are very behind. Hint: AZ. Puke Robertson just received his talking points to scare people about this old technology. It won’t work. We are not going back to the paper charting.

        • Dwendt44 August 20th, 2014 at 7:56 pm

          Yes, and he’s largely talking to the elderly, they are easy to scare and health concerns are high on their list of worries. Of course, many elderly take vitamins and other supplements, so he’s targeting the wrong crowd.
          OR, since seniors often take expensive supplements, there’s less money they can send him.

  11. Robert Merrill Taylor August 20th, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    The old atheist fraudster is running out of targets.

  12. Bunya August 20th, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    Does anybody really care what this demented old geezer has to say? He’s outlived his usefulness (if he ever had any) a long time ago. It’s about time he was put out to pasture.

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:42 pm

      No but it’s fun to pick on the old stupid fart.

      • Bunya August 20th, 2014 at 7:26 pm

        LOL! I can’t argue with you about that.

  13. Abby Normal August 20th, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    What a total moron. You want your doctor and pharmacist to know everything about you. People have serious and even fatal drug interactions because their doctors and pharmacists aren’t on the same page. Computerizing everyone’s medical records is the best way to avoid that. Plus, how can your doctor treat you if you keep secrets from him/her.

    But, what else would we expect from a right-wing, anti-science, climate denier.

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:54 pm

      It he is truly anti science, what is he doing at a doctor’s office?

      • Abby Normal August 20th, 2014 at 5:59 pm

        Probably trying to sign the doctor up to be a $500 per month supporter of the 700 Club.

        • Anomaly 100 August 20th, 2014 at 6:16 pm


        • juicyfruityyy August 20th, 2014 at 6:51 pm

          So, he want one of those fake doctors to perform a miracle on TV? Not surprising.

  14. tiredoftea August 20th, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Pat was just cranky that he couldn’t get that proctologist’s probe any sooner.

    • whatthe46 August 20th, 2014 at 10:01 pm


  15. Maxx44 August 20th, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    Should Pat be out in public?

  16. juicyfruityyy August 20th, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    His Banker doesn’t use a computer? I’m sure they have a big computerized profile on him.

    But don’t worry Puke Robertson. We don’t enter your penis size in the computer.

    Also, stop inciting violence by calling for a revolution. You are not being a good Christian.

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:54 pm

      Boycott medical treatment!!!
      Brilliant …

  17. Guy Lauten August 20th, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    Fine. Next time don’t ask. Just give him whatever pharmacology you think would be the most efficacious, contra-indications be damned. I’m sure ol’ Pat would have no problem suffering some nasty side effects, right?.

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:52 pm

      They can’t. They are required to ASK. If he chooses to not answer, that is up to a physician as to whether he/she would continue to treat the patient. And doctors can now refuse to treat non complaint patients as well.

      • whatthe46 August 20th, 2014 at 10:00 pm

        he can always take a gamble and just respond in the negative. let the chips fall where they may.

    • whatthe46 August 20th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

      he’s already suffering from some nasty side affect. STUPIDITY!!!

  18. BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:40 pm

    Any employees in a pharmacy or a medical office, hospital – are all covered under HIPPA restrictions.
    The man is an ass.

  19. Larry Schmitt August 20th, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    So this asswipe wants things like they were back in the good old days, when everything was recorded on paper, with handwritten notes (tried to read a handwritten prescription lately?), and the predictable problems associated with transfers between doctors’ offices. What a Luddite.

    • BanditBasheert August 20th, 2014 at 5:50 pm

      You forgot that everyone / anyone could access and read that chart!

      Physicians/surgeons always question whether people are taking “supplements” – since most of them can cause hideous side effects such as excess bleeding. It is why a surgical patient is asked to stop taking all supplements at least 3 days prior to elective surgery.

      • Dwendt44 August 20th, 2014 at 7:51 pm

        Republicans made sure they stay ‘unregulated’ years ago.

  20. Tommy6860 August 20th, 2014 at 6:44 pm

    Maybe would should scrap computer technology and have doctor’s staff transcribe patient information and medical history onto papyrus or stone tablets. That surely will meet his requirements, no?

    • juicyfruityyy August 20th, 2014 at 6:54 pm

      Stone or paper. It eventually will make its way in the computer. Puke Robertson don’t have a say so in the matter. He just want to start some mess.

  21. mmaynard119 August 20th, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    What set him off is when the nurse asked if he was taking the little blue pill and he was forced to answer in the affirmative.

    • whatthe46 August 20th, 2014 at 9:54 pm


  22. Dwendt44 August 21st, 2014 at 12:51 am

    I watched the section of the program where he rants about the ‘inquisitive’ nurse. The doctor he ‘profiled’ was, I’m sure, a contributor so he exaggerated much like poor ole’ Pat does himself. He totes around a laptop instead of a tablet. Asking about vitamins etc.. generally happens the first visit or an update. Sounds like that doctor has no clue about time management and is willing to help ole’ Pat smear the ACA. Much like those wildly distorted ‘victims’ of the ACA, this one is a fraud as well.

  23. rg9rts August 21st, 2014 at 6:21 am

    Did they mention that he has no scrotum??

  24. liberalMD August 22nd, 2014 at 8:57 am

    Dear Pat: The nurse would need to either use a computer to record your answers or write them down on a piece of paper or on a form. The reason the nurse has to ask you all of those questions is that when you forget to take your medicines for an extended period of time and then confabulate something about your stay in the hospital and go to a lawyer to attempt to obtain restitution, that it will be documented that you were asked about all your afflictions and problems and that all necessary efforts were made to prevent a problem during your hospital stay and that your recall is about as long as you can hold your breath.

  25. Carla Akins August 22nd, 2014 at 9:04 am

    I’m sure Pat can pray away any interaction problem.
