Dr. Terrence Soule, Dentist – A Patient’s Review

Dr. Terrence Soule is a dentist whose office is located at: 2578 South Volusia Avenue; Orange City, Fl. 32763

I have always taken responsible care of my teeth and I have never opted for the least expensive treatment.  Also, I have always done research by talking with people in a desire to find an honest and responsible dentist.

My dentist at the above address was Dr. Robert Erdman for a number of years.  During recent visits to the above address, a Dr. Terrence Soule would enter the room to “check” my teeth after a routine cleaning.  When I asked where Dr. Erdman was, I was told, ” he is not here.”  Sometimes I was told that he was on vacation.  I would have considered it ethical if Dr. Erdman had written to all of his patients stating that he planned to retire from his business and clearly state what financial arrangements he made with Dr. Soule. He finally sent a note, long after a reasonable time,  which I considered unethical because of the long time delay.

I unwisely permitted Dr. Soule to perform a procedure on one tooth. Soule treated a tooth for a crown.  In my opinion, his work was unprofessional and incompetent for the following reasons.

1) During the first step in the dental procedure, I remained in the dental chair for almost 2.5 hours.  At one point, I used my cell phone to call the front desk and ask when Soule would return.  Soule was multitasking with other patients, but I felt that his long absences from my procedure were unethical and unprofessional.

2) The dental assistant in the first procedure was told by Soule to place chemical saturated strings in the site to prepare for a mold/impression.  When Soule returned to the room, I heard him state to his assistant that she had not completed the task correctly.  In my view, it is highly unethical for a dentist to assign a task to a dental assistant unless he is sure that the assistant can do the job correctly.

3) The temporary crown was a poor fit and was probably responsible for the pain and discomfort that I suffered for more than two weeks while the permanent crown was being made. In my view, it is highly unethical to prepare a temporary crown that is not a correct fit.

4) Upon returning more than two weeks later to receive the permanent crown, a different dental assistant was there and she said that the new crown did not fit properly.

5) I stated to Soule and his assistant that the crown did not feel uncomfortable.  At this point, an ethical dentist would have said that the crown was not acceptable. I considered Soule unethical and incompetent because he easily could have performed two simple procedures to help me understand. First he could have given me a piece of dental floss and asked me to floss. I would then have immediately understood that the crown was the wrong size. Also, Soule easily could have taken a picture of the tooth with the advanced equipment and displayed the image on the computer screen for me to view.  He did neither, and in my view, this demonstrates gross incompetence on Soule’s part.

6) Today the crown is permanently affixed and there is discomfort in the region. In my view, there would be no discomfort if Soule had not displayed gross negligence and incompetence as a dentist.

Wells Fargo CEO Appears Before Senate Banking Committee

On Tuesday, October 3, 2017, the U.S. Senate Banking Committee questioned the Chief Executive Officer of Wells Fargo, Timothy J. Sloan.  Sloan has been CEO since October, 2016, and he succeeded John Stumpf.

An internal review revealed that Wells Fargo created 3.5 Million fraudulent accounts and that Wells Fargo employees secretly created millions of additional fake accounts using the private information of their own customers.  Numerous federal banking laws were violated and there are severe legal sanctions for such criminal behavior.

Both the democrat crooks and the republican crooks on the Senate Banking Committee feigned outrage at such immoral behavior.  All of the senators wanted to know when such criminal behavior would come to an end.

Sanityandsense.com is glad to inform the Senate Banking Committee that such criminal behavior will cease when the criminals who perpetrated such behavior are indicted, arrested, tried in court, and finally sentenced to prison.  Of course this is never going to happen.  It will not happen because lobbyists for Wells Fargo, and other large banking interests, have “bought and paid for” the souls of most of the members of the Senate Banking Committee.  If there were one scintilla of justice left in the U.S. Federal Government, the government would nullify Wells Fargo’s right to exist as a legal corporation in the U.S. for their criminal activities.  Also, all of the high level administrators in Wells Fargo would be indicted, arrested, and tried in a court of law on numerous criminal chargers.

What will happen in reality is that the lobbyists for Wells Fargo will seek and find more corrupt democrat crooks and more corrupt republican crooks who will support their corrupt activities in the future.

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: President Obama’s good friend, Warren Buffett, has several surrogates on the Board of Wells Fargo.  It is strange how much corruption exists in corporations where Warren Buffett has large shareholder interests. )

Editors Note 2: ( The U.S. will have to learn that legal rules and regulations that must be obeyed by the average American, must be obeyed by large U.S. multinational corporations.  President Trump’s desire to create a more just society for both the rich and the poor is the reason that many of the super-rich oppose President Trump continuously. )

The Department of Veterans Affairs – A Public Disgrace

About three years ago, Americans learned that dozens of VA facilities had been falsifying records to hide their incompetency.  While this is indeed a public disgrace, many average Americans have known about the fraud, waste, abuse, mismanagement, Nepotism, racism, the staggering incompetency of the Veterans Administration for decades.

The VA criminality was known in detail by President Clinton, President Bush (43 ), and President Obama.  Yet, not one of these bull-slingers had the basic decency nor the political courage to do anything to correct the problem.

The federal workforce is a totally corrupt special interest group much more interested in self protection than in serving the American People.  This special interest group has negotiated a number of terrible rules relating to employment that make it nearly impossible to fire or discipline anyone for any reason !

All disciplinary actions are subject to very lengthy and excessively expensive appeals, during which the corrupt or incompetent employee is entitled to receive his/her salary !

The following are just a few examples of some VA employees who continued to receive six digit salaries while “waiting” to be fired :

** Sharon Halman was the Phoenix VA Hospital Administrator who was on paid leave for seven months.

** Lance Robinson was Associate Director at the Phoenix VA Hospital and was on paid leave for 19 months.  He was put back to work for two months before he was fired in June, 2016.

( Editor’s Note: Phoenix is in Arizona. John McCain is the longtime Senator from Arizona. He certainly should have been aware of the VA problems in Arizona.  Many believe that ” Crooked John” should have left the Senate after his involvement in the S&L scandal was made known years ago.  McCain may indeed be the single most corrupt Senator in the U.S. Senate which is chock full of crooks. )

** Ed Russell was the director of benefits of the VA in Reno, Nevada.  Graded as poor for years, he was finally given a new “work” from home advisory position.

** Daniel Kim, MD, was put on leave with full salary after blinding a patient during a routine surgery.  The same MD forged documents at the VA.

The list of incompetent, corrupt, and crooked VA employees could go on and on and on and on and on !  It is totally insulting to all law abiding American Citizens.

Thankfully President Trump has publically expressed outrage at the crooked and scandal-wracked VA.  President Trump has pledged to fire all corrupt VA employees.  All law abiding and decent Americans should be ever grateful to President Trump for his courage and his integrity.

Sadly, similar examples of gross incompetence can be found in many other federal departments and agencies.  However, I still find it almost incomprehensible that Bill Clinton, George Bush (43), and Obama all lacked the courage to address this problem.  Mr. Clinton, Bush (43) and Obama all opposed the election of Donald Trump.  It is certainly understandable why these three bull-slingers would oppose an honest and law abiding man like Donald Trump.

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: I recently received a call from Jonathan Swift who was outraged over the corruption at the VA.  Dr. Swift stated: ” If people want to receive American Tax dollars for incompetence and corruption, I say let them join the U.S. Senate.” )

Is Antimatter a Function Of Time Direction

Lacking a good historical novel, I decided to read some articles about recent advances in the area of physics.  It turned out that science fact is once again stranger to me than science fiction.

James Clerk Maxwell was a brilliant scientist.  When Maxwell’s equations are solved for light, there are two distinct solutions. One solution is called the retarded solution and the other is referred to as the advance solution.  The retarded solution, that represents a wave of light, is an accepted and an acceptable solution.  It defines how light travels from one point to another.  The advanced solution was largely ignored by scientists for many years.  The advanced wave solution in essence is a wave ( or photon ) of light that is traveling backward in time ! The advanced wave solution comes from the future and travels back to the past.

Scientist Richard Feynman was intrigued by the idea of going backwards in time.  Using Paul Dirac’s equations that defined electron motion, Feynman reversed the direction of time in the equation and discovered that the equation was still valid if he also reversed the electron’s charge.  ( Editor’s Note: An electron has a charge of negative one. ) It turns out that an electron going backward in time is the same as an antielectron going forward in time !!  ( Editor’s note:  An antielectron is the anti-particle of the electron. ) An anti-particle is sometimes referred to as antimatter.

If an electron and an antielectron collide, they will annihilate each other and a gamma ray of energy will be released.  It now appears that if an electron is moving forward in its time dimension, and then suddenly decides to reverse its time dimension and go backward in time, it can do so if it gives off a burst of energy.  So in essence antimatter is just regular matter reversing its time direction.

Hurricane Harvey and Necrotizing fasciitis

The Center For Disease Control ( CDC ) recently released results of the types of bacteria present in the flood waters in Texas.  The CDC stated that there was a clear and present danger for individuals walking through this water.  The CDC stated that individuals with cuts or sores on their body could contract necrotizing fasciitis also called the flesh eating bacteria syndrome.

Several types of bacteria can cause necrotizing fasciitis.  The bacteria are: 1) Streptococcus pyogenes, 2) Staphylococcus aureus, 3) Clostridium perfringens, and 4) Vibrio vulnificus.

Given this information, it would seem wise for a CDC representative to be present in Texas to advise responders.  All individuals should avoid skin contact with the flood waters as much as possible.

Senator Grassley and Senator Graham Shock America

Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham have concluded that former FBI Director James Comey drafted a statement to announce his conclusions into the serious allegations against Hillary Clinton before the FBI interviewed key witnesses, including Hillary Clinton.

If true, this could be a thousand times bigger than Watergate.  Senator Grassley and Senator Graham based their statement on research and documents available to them as members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ms. Clinton has never been held to account for her misuse of classified documents while she was U.S. Secretary of State.  Also, Ms. Clinton was not placed under oath when she finally was interviewed by the FBI. America must have a justice system that serves all Americans equally and fairly.  Apparently, former FBI Director Comey clearly aided and abetted Hillary Clinton in numerous criminal actions.  Also, it appears that President Barack Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are both guilty of aiding and abetting criminal actions by Hillary Clinton.

R. Van Conoley  ( Editor’s Note: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has a record of lying to the American People in order to support false narratives to protect Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. )

The U.S. Needs More Historical Statues – Part 4

I would like to suggest a sixty foot tall statue of President Ronald Reagan.  The following statement should be inscribed on a large bronze plaque at the front of the statue:

” Ronald Reagan was elected president in November, 1980, when he defeated President Jimmy Carter. Mr. Reagan campaigned against Mr. Carter by stating that Carter was financially irresponsible and also by pointing out that the National Debt was approaching $ 1 Trillion.  After he took office, Mr. Reagan proved to be one of the greatest hypocrites in history by decreasing the overall amount of tax revenues while at the same time increasing federal spending.  These dual actions sent the National Debt soaring past the $ 1 Trillion mark for the first time in the history of the U.S. Ronald Reagan became the poster boy of deficit financing in the U.S. Government. ”

I suggest that this historical statue be placed on federal land in West Branch, Iowa, near the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library.  The land should be fenced off and the U.S. Government should rent space to one souvenir salesman.  The only souvenir should be a small plastic card with the following quote: ” If federal taxes are reduced and federal spending is increased to a level greater than the level of tax revenues, then the U.S. National Debt will increase. ”

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: Mr. Reagan raised taxes in five of his eight years as president.  But overall, Mr. Reagan increased spending faster than total tax revenues could balance and the National Debt passed the $ 1 Trillion mark ! For the statistical fanatics who read this website and demand exacting data analysis, here it is. In 1981, when Mr. Reagan took office federal tax revenues were 19.6% of GDP.  At the end of his eight years, federal tax revenues were 18.2% of GDP. )

( Editor’s Note 2 : Presidents George W. Bush (43) and Barack Obama shamelessly increased the U.S. National Debt in a manner as irresponsibly as Mr. Reagan. The only reason the U.S. does not suffer more economic pain from the huge National Debt is mainly because other industrialized democracies around the world are also acting  more irresponsibly with their National Debts !  The international currency markets which operate 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, buy and sell currency ( Yin, Yuan, US Dollar, Euro, etc. ) based on currency supply and the complex relationship between the National Debt of a country as a function of the GDP of that country. )

President Trump and Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey was downgraded to a tropical storm after bashing Southeastern Texas.  The National Hurricane Center stated that serious flooding would continue through many regions in Texas.

Sanityandsense.com believes that President Trump will aggressively move forward to assist citizens of Texas who can no longer live or reside in their flooded or destroyed homes in the near future.  Unlike past presidents, this website expects Mr. Trump to order specified military bases around the U.S. to set up tents and temporary living facilities for citizens so they can reside in a safe, dry, and clean place until the crisis is under control.

Possibly Fort Rucker in Alabama, Patrick Air Force base in Florida, Fort Benning in Georgia, and Fort Stewart in Georgia are some of the bases under consideration.  President Trump is expected to order U.S. military forces to assist the citizens in a temporary relocation with the highest priority being given to elderly citizens and families with young children.

Donald Trump will not have to lie and say something stupid like: ” You did the hell of a job,” to some worthless bureaucrat because the American People will see firsthand that the President employed sane and sensible actions to help our fellow Americans.  All sane and sensible Americans are observing closely Mr. Trump’s leadership skills in this time of need and all Americans wish our President well in the task ahead.

The U.S. Needs More Historical Statues – Part 3

I would like to suggest another new historical statue featuring three individuals.  I believe that a fifty foot tall statue featuring Hillary Clinton, Juanita Broaddrick, and Paula Jones should be erected.  Ms. Clinton’s left foot should be firmly standing upon the throat of a prostrate Juanita Broaddrick while Ms. Clinton’s right hand is entwined in the hair of a prostrate Paula Jones.

At the front of the statue, on a large bronze plaque, there should be an appropriate quote from Hillary Clinton that reads: ” I will teach you White Trash women to accuse my husband of sexual molestation.  It is all just part of a vast right wing conspiracy. ”

I additionally suggest that this statue be placed upon federal land located in close proximity to the Dwight Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, Kansas.  The land should be fenced off and the U.S. Government should rent space for three Islamic Extremists who believe as Hillary does that women who do not know their place may be killed or abused in many other ways.  The Islamic Extremists could sell souvenirs to tourists with quotes from the Quran that support Ms. Clinton’s anti-woman doctrine.

The U.S. Needs More Recent Historical Statues – Part 2

I suggest that a giant statue of U.S. Senator Robert Byrd be placed on a pedestal.  Senator Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan throughout most of his career as a U.S. Senator.  The statue should depict Senator Byrd wearing his Ku Klux Klan robe depicting his highly important status in the Klan.

A bronze plaque should be affixed to the statue and should read: ” Robert C. Byrd was a Democrat U.S. Senator from West Virginia.  As a member of the Ku Klux Klan, Senator Byrd served as an exalted leader of the KKK as well as a Democrat Leader of the United States Senate.  Mr. Byrd served as a U.S. Senator from January 3, 1959 to June 28, 2010.  He served as : 1) The Majority Whip, 2) The Senate Majority Leader, 3) President pro tempore emeritus of the U.S. Senate, 4) Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, and 5) President pro tempore of the U.S. Senate.  He was the longest serving senator in U.S. history.  He led the 1964 Filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. ”

I suggest that this statue be placed in the 43rd.  Congressional District of California.  This congressional district is located in South Los Angeles and is presently represented by Democrat Maxine Waters.  I suggest that this statue be placed upon federal land and fenced off.  However, the U.S. Government should rent space for three Civil War Historical stands to individuals who wish to sell Civil War souvenirs and souvenirs of the Ku Klux Klan.
