"Sounds like a Goddamn SPANISH INQUISITION to me!"
Admiral Leonard H. McCoy alias Doctor Bones
Chief Medical Officer Aboard the USS Enterprise,
compared 20th century primitive Earth medicine
to the Spanish Inquisition,
which used brutal methods to
solidify its power as a newly unified Spanish kingdom.
[See the movie Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home for details]
The following is a real life scenario entitled, “The Spanish Inquisition”, illustrating what happened to me when I sought Earth medical attention at the Galilee Medical Center in the 21st century.
On September 7, 2016, I woke up in the morning to a lumpy red rash underneath my right armpit. It rapidly spread in size as the day wore on. Although I felt no pain, I was aghast with concern. Having no idea what it was I decided I better go to a hospital to have it checked out. I called for an ambulance that drove me to the Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya, which was the closest hospital to where I live in Karmiel.

The hospital admitted me to their emergency room. The nurse, whose name was Aliyah, took my temperature and told me I had a 101 Fahrenheit degree fever. After waiting a short while I was greeted by a doctor named Muhammad Khalifa. He had nice bedside manners. He told me I had an abscess. And he was certain it had pus in it. So he decided to perform minor surgery on me to extract the puss. I asked him how big of an incision he was going to make. He replied, “It will be a little one”. He gave me a local anesthetic and made an incision right below my right armpit. He did it painlessly. However, he found no puss and was quite surprised about that. After bandaging me up he prescribed an antibiotic for me to take two times a day – morning and evening - for fourteen days so that neither the abscess nor the incision will get infected. Then he sent me home with instructions to change my bandage twice a day – morning and evening – and wash the knife wound he made with water before applying a new bandage.

Relieved that I did not have some sort of tumor I went home thinking everything was going to be all right. That is until I removed the bandages. Oh…My…God!!! This doctor had made a one-inch gaping hole in me. He had cut nearly straight thru all the layers of my skin tissue. My spouse, when we were still living in America, had had an abscess on his left elbow. The doctor only made a quarter inch incision and used some sort of suction device to extract the pus.

After I removed the hospital bandages, I was in for another shock. I noticed four skin burns where the bandage had been. The hospital had put the bandage on too tight and the sticky tape upon removal literally tore my skin off! So I was no longer able to use the gauze to cover my knife wound with. I had to figure out what to use as a bandage to protect the knife wound from getting infected.

I decided to use a couple of regular band aids. It turned out to be a good idea because their adhesive material was much more friendly to my flesh and since they not only covered my knife wound but held it together.

After seeing the long deep knife wound underneath my right armpit, I called the hospital. I needed to know if I might be able to get stitches. The emergency personnel kept repeatedly hanging up the phone on me for no apparent reason. During one of the times when I called back I asked the male voice on the other line if he had hung up on me. He said, “Yes”. So I told him, “Hang up on you!” and I disconnected the phone. I also wanted to know why doctor Muhammad Khalifa felt he had to give me such a large knife wound. He was not extracting my heart organ…just pus that did not exist from an inflammatory rash! The emergency room nurses told me he was not there. So I asked the emergency room staff when he was available. Initially, they told me they did not know. So I told them to look at his schedule. Finally, they told me, “Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. he will be working in the emergency room.”
On September 11, 2016, Sunday, I returned to the hospital via ambulance to talk to doctor Muhammad Khalifa about the too big incision he had made under my right armpit and about getting stitches to close it. He was NOT there. Instead I got another doctor who was just as incompetent as well as rude and arrogant. His answer to my question about getting stitches was an emphatic, “Absolutely not!” and without so much as an explanation why. So I pressed him for one. Finally he told me, “Because you still have an infection.” "How can I have an infection when there never ever was any pus there?" I asked. He refused to answer this question. Next, when I brought to his attention that the hospital bandages had ripped my skin apart, and asked him if it was okay for me to use ordinary band aids as a bandage, he said "No!" and again without so much as an explanation why. Instead, he had a nurse bring me a sling, not sticky tape, to hold the gauze over my knife wound. But the sling was too small for me to wear. I ended up leaving the hospital without any bandage at all to cover my knife wound to keep it from getting infected. So I continued to use the house hold band aids I had been using at home in order to protect my knife wound from getting infected.

This same doctor had also gotten nasty with me for staying in the emergency room instead of leaving. So I got nasty right back with him by telling him, “How am I supposed to know. I do not work here.” “No one told me I was supposed to leave.”
Then I added, “You know a very important part of medicine is bed side manners”. His response was to complain to me like a little, spoiled, rotten child that he had so many patients to attend to. I told him, “That is no excuse! I have had a God awful life and I am a nice person.” He went silent but his anger was so loud I could hear his thoughts that he wanted to call security and have me thrown out of the hospital. But he could not as I had done nothing wrong.
Then, this idiot so-called doctor gave me instructions to cleanse my open gaping wound with soap. Can you imagine irritating soap liquid getting into my exposed bodily tissue! I told him, “Doctor Muhammad Khalifa told me to use water.” He went silent but his anger was so loud I could hear his thoughts that he wanted to call security and have me thrown out of the hospital. But he could not as I had done nothing wrong.
After that, this idiot so-called doctor gave me instructions to put Polydine ointment, which is an antiseptic that has iodine in it, on my knife wound. At this point I did not have any trust or faith in him. So I decided to check the directions for this medicine myself to determine if I ought to use it. Good thing I did because according to its application it is only to be used on superficial wounds not deep knife wounds like I had.

I also informed him that I had to change my appointment for September 18, 2016. He said, “Why? Doctor Muhammad Khalifa is going to be here”. “Oh really”, I said. “Doctor Muhammad Khalifa told me he may or may not be here. And by the way your emergency so-called help lied to me that he was going to be here today”. He went silent but his anger was so loud I could hear his thoughts that he wanted to call security and have me thrown out of the hospital. But he could not as I had done nothing wrong. He gave me a new follow up appointment for September 20, 2016, which I never showed up for I was so thoroughly incensed at what this hospital had done to me.
Now the third shock. A week into taking my antibiotics I suddenly broke out all over my body into hives. I was having a full blown allergic reaction to the medication. I took out the box and instructions that came with the pills and lo and behold the asinine hospital had given me a medicine that stated that I was not to take it if I was allergic to Penicillin! I had told the ambulance and the emergency room nurse named Aliyah that I am allergic to Penicillin. This factoid was part of my hospital intake paperwork. And it was written in Hebrew. So I do not know why for the life of me no one paid attention to this very important information.

Now let’s talk about the hospital bill, shall we? To begin with my second emergency visit bill was higher than my first emergency visit bill. Yet the second doctor had done less than the first doctor. The first doctor diagnosed my illness, put me under anesthesia, gave me a surgical incision, bandaged up the knife wound, checked my breasts, and prescribed antibiotics. The second doctor spent less than a minute looking at my knife wound while telling me “No” to stitches and changed my appointment time. How does the hospital account for such erroneous billing?!

I have no misgivings about paying my bills. I promptly paid both ambulance bills in the amount of 1,228 Israeli Shekels 307 US Dollars for the two trips I took to the hospital for the simple reason that they did their job.

[Reader’s Note: There is a stamp at the bottom of each ambulance bill. That is my receipt of payment].
But the hospital…all the hospital did was charge me for bestowing upon me 1) an unnecessary knife incision 2) antibiotics I was allergic to 3) bandages that tore open my skin 4) unbelievably rude staff and incompetent arrogant so-called doctors.
Ten days after my ill-fated trip to the hospital my body began mending the wide-open knife invasion to its skin layers from the inside out and now the separated skin is nearly entirely sutured and the abscess is all gone all by itself. Three days after my hive break out the itchy irritating bumps disappeared on their own as if they were never there. As of this write up my skin lacerations are fading away and no longer burn with pain.
My sentiments…thank God for healing me via my unconditionally loving immune system and the Galilee so-called Medical Center can go to hell for harming my flesh and hurting my feelings.
This sick excuse of a hospital declares that I owe it
1,729.00 Israeli Shekels/432.00 US Dollars.
I WILL PAY THIS HOSPITAL ZERO AMOUNT OF MONEY.
I WILL NEVER EVER GO TO THAT HOSPITAL AGAIN.
I’D RATHER DROP DEAD.
21st century Earth medicine is BRUTAL, and do you know why? Because no one is making these mean, stupid, selfish, lazy, arrogant, lying flunky so-called healers accountable for their misdeeds. Every single individual one of us is responsible for this sort of bullying if we do NOTHING.
Make them pay for physically assaulting you by not paying them any money.
Give them back their own medicine (excuse the pun) for emotionally battering you by giving them “Have a Nice Day” Salvos [See the section called, “The Have A Nice Day Salvo List” in the Emotional Bullying webpage of the BullCrap Busters website for details].
And for legal and credit purposes keep all of your records and take photos of the incident to document the facts that you are in the right. [See my photos and paperwork of this incident in the hyperlinks on this webpage].
In the case of a business filing a Lawsuit against you…
…Israeli law does not permit a corporation to sue an individual in small claim’s court. The amount of money I supposedly owe them is 1,729 Israeli Shekels, which is less than 33,000 Israeli Shekels (It ranges from 31,900 to 32,700 Israeli Shekels) for small claims. Therefore, any legal claim against me will have to go to small claim’s court. So the hospital cannot pursue legal action against me. Game over. I win!
If the reader is interested in viewing the online small claims court in Israel FAQ then please go to hyperlink 05 small claims court at www.bullcrapbusters.com.
…United States law does permit a corporation to sue an individual in small claim’s court. The amount of money is up to 5,000 Dollars for small claims. So a business can pursue legal action against you if your bill is 5,000 Dollars or less. Thereby the business may opt to bribe the judge presiding over your legal case in order to win such a lawsuit being that you will have the facts on your side. So if the business pursues legal action against you, you will kick its bully coward butt in by performing the Alamo on it. [See the section called, “The Alamo” in the Physical Bullying webpage of the BullCrap Busters website for details].
In the case of the business tarnishing your Credit rating…
You might be worried about your credit being ruined if you put your dignity first and decide not to endure being treated like a piece of crap that does not even get thrown into a garbage can by refusing to pay for disservices. Do not be concerned about your credit score because the credit system is corrupt since it does not serve you anymore being that the creditor is judge, jury, and executioner over your credit report. [See the section called, “Judge Jury and Executioner” in the Corporate Elite Bullying webpage of the BullCrap Busters website for details].

Sorry for the inconvenience.].
Beat the corrupt credit game by no longer using the credit system by building cash reserves so you can pay for all of your expenses with cash. [See the section called, “Cash Reserves” in the Corporate Elite Bullying webpage of the BullCrap Busters website for details].

The above legal and financial systems are the scenarios in the United States. However, being that our modern world has been taken over by United States Corporations doing business with the world trade market via globalization and outsourcing, I will venture to say that most probably the court system and credit system work pretty much the same way all over the industrialized world as it does the United States.
