    I have and have had many Filipino friends over the years. You know who I've learned is most vicious in their attacks against all things Filipino? Yes you do. Its Filipinos. You know what I mean because I bet you do it in private. I have been on the other side of the arguement many times try to convince them that they play second fiddle to no one and have much to be very proud of in their culture and people.

    I've heard much more offensive Filipino humor right here in beautiful Hawaii Nei from the mouths of Frank Delima, Andy Bumatai etc etc. They attack accents, culture, people (Imelda), food. They go right to the core of insulting what it means to be Filipino.

    This was mearly a comment made based upon the assumption (accurate or not) that the education received in the country of the Philippines is not equal to the education received in the USA. Obviously most people in the Philippine medical schools are Filipino but the comment really didn't attack them personally.

    If you want to bring down insulting Filipino humor, you will need to start right here in Hawaii folks. WHy the pass for Frank Delima?

    Bully,

    No wonder you one Mortgage Borker(sp?). You can use numbers and make 2 + 2 = 1.

    Let me go slow for you and your honeygurl. Yes, malpractice insurance is more expensive for M.Ds than Nurses. So what? That's one of the many reasons M.Ds are paid more. The only thing that should matter to a Filipino trained M.D. is what they will have in their pocket after expenses? Again, wouldn't an M.D. be able to pay the insurance and yet still have more money? Isn't that what the Isreal, China, Japan or whereever trained MDs do.

    You have still failed to answer the question. Amazing how you Mortgage Brokers can use numbers to try to support anything just to close the deal.

    Keep on keepin on Mortgage guy. Hows business? No worry, Timkona said home prices will keep increasing by 10% until 2016.

    Salamat Po

    C'mon. Are you REALLY this upset about this ?

    How do you know the writer of the episode wasn't Filipino him/herself ?

    Besides, what would deem any ethnic joke "truly funny" in your eyes, if you are so convinced that Hollywood is a bunch of WASPS writing Uncle Tom-esque jokes about the "minorities" ?
    Puulleeze....Anyone who knows anything about Hollywood knows the Jews run Hollywood.

    Actually, the film and tv business is pretty diverse as far as the working people go. But like I said earlier, this incident was no pot shot at the PEOPLE of the Phillipines. It was at the infrastructure/educational practices and standards. There was no reference to race, skin color, cultural customs ar anything else pertaining to the people.

    Once again...lighten up.

    in contrast to physician liability insurance costs, according to a 2003 issue of nursing magazine:

    For many nurses, the cost is less than $100 per year.
    this site quotes about $60 a year for $1M/$5M coverage, and that's for nurses with 3 years + experience.

    "Against logic there is no armor like ignorance." -- Laurence J. Peter

    Rising Insurance Rates Put City Doctors Out of Business
    Dr. Scott Berlin has delivered close to 2,000 babies since 1994, but an increase in malpractice insurance rates announced this week prompted a decision to close up shop.
    The Long Island obstetrician will owe $190,000 in liability costs after the state's Department of Insurance announced a 14% insurance rate hike ... the New York Chapter of the American College of Physicians issued a statement warning that the rate increase could bring about a primary care physician shortage.
    Here's a pretty graph [page 7]for the O'Reilly types who are too lazy to read more than a few words or lift an opposable thumb in the name of attribution.

    Hawai'i losing its doctors
    Rising medical malpractice insurance premiums and fears of lawsuits are taking their toll on the quality of healthcare in Hawai'i, particularly in orthopedics and obstetrics, where high costs are driving some doctors to quit.
    The weather must be wonderful in that state of Ignorance. No torrential rain or flash floods, I bet.

    That is the dumbest answer I have heard. An MDs pay could cover any additional liability insurance premium easily.

    So are you calling all the Chinese, Jewish, Indian etc. foreign trained M.Ds foolish for actualy becoming an M.D. in the U.S.A.? Sounds like you are.

    I don't think so stinky okole you.

    Sorry buddy. It's always their choice. Don't insult them by making them victims. It is their choice. The COST is silly. With Doctor pay, they could cover any testing costs in a few hours.

    You have still failed to answer the simple question.

    Nobody on this thread has paired accents with anything that I've noticed.
    It's not always their choice. Some nurses with MD's whom I know did so because of various reasons, including satisfaction with a nurse's pay, spent most of their money moving to the US and can't afford to take the USMLE immediately, etc. Check this out (from http://aboutmyrecovery.com/2007/10/0...ol-graduate/):

    Considering there are a large number of US-based doctors and nurses who are graduates of Philippine Medical Schools, then I think not. These Philippine Medical School graduates took up further training in the States. Before they can even practice in the US, our Filipino doctors called Foreign Medical Graduates have to take a USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Exams) which consist of 3 parts to get into residency:

    Part 1- Basic Subjects (can be taken in Philippines)
    Part 2 CK – Clinical Knowledge (can be taken in Philippines)
    Part 2 CS – Clinical Skills (to be taken in the US)

Nearly all of the time, these students are smarter than their peers because of the Phlippines' accelerated public ed system (high school is completed at age 16). It's a dangerous pairing of prejudice and human nature to equate a foreign accent with inferior ability.

    You aren't reading my posts carefully. I totally agree with you and know that there are wonderful health care providers who are Filipino. No argument from me there. In fact, I have made the RACIST argument that Filipinos, as a group, are better health care providers than many other groups IMHO.
