This is one of the few times in history where an Ad-banner has actually had an effect on me.

I am considering joining the Medical Reserve Corps. (I am a medical student)

What would be the downside? Maybe 4 times a year, I would get training on how to administer anthrax and smallpox vaccines.

I don't think Alabama is much of a terrorist target, so chances are slim that I would ever have to actually do anything.

And it would look excellent on my resume!

As a member of TIPS, your name sound quite suspicious. I have had several psychologists on my staff to review your postings and a brief background check. I am on to you First Incision--tell me at once why I should not report you to the FBI.

Surgeons perform their work by making incisions into the body. It is tradition that the most senior surgeon in the operating theatre makes the first incision. Therefore, our friend's nickname is merely stating his ambition to make the first incision. -- because it isn't

Although I am not longer leaning toward a career in surgery. It may still be a possiblility. Other areas of medicine are looking more appealing to me at the moment.

i donīt have any respect for you and/or your peers. You are just a little liar working as a cars salesman at most yes you could complain about my grammatical errors but does that make you any better than a bitchy old woman. First of all as a person who have had any college education you would know that the basics of democracy are
1 education
2 freedom
3 participation
4 no one should be left out of these things no matter what.

if it where otherwise you could havestayed udner the union jack or become a commi so the conclusion i can make is that you dropped out of highschool.

furthermore you name is sounding very spanish know isnīt it a truth that us had to fight to get land from the spanish bastards and isnt it right that the whole south america is spanish execpt for brazil. and south americans are all communist. and people in spain are either communist rebels or anti americans.

give me a damn good reason why we would let you breath the air of the land that only serves below good and the constitioun

Why would you ever accuse someone with a PhD. at the end of his name of not having a high school education. Especially when you yourself cannot even formulate a comment that is in any fashion readable. If you wish to make a comment without prior sufficeint knowledge of the english language then for God's sake don't discredit their accomplishments.

Ok, who picked the flower???

Promote trust with your neighbours by spying on them.

This, and crap like the Patriot Act and the DMCA make me glad I'm not an American.

Seems you are confusing the otherwise good idea of Citizen Corps with TIPS. I am all for people being prepared for bad things, being it a biowarfare attack or a flood. So First Incision, join the Med Corps. But stay away from TIPS and be prepared to protest or dash away if some idiot will try to politicize it or turn it to just another branch of State Will Enforcement Corps.

This, and crap like the Patriot Act and the DMCA make me glad I'm not an American.

Me too. Though I have a bad feeling EU is going to become something similar...

The EU plans to take over when the US Empire eventually crumbles as all Empires do. If you think the US hegemony is bad, wait until you see what a bunch of bureaucratic Nazi Communists can do.<p>
