Assisted Suicide Advocate Jack Kevorkian Dies at 83 – FoxNews.com.

This couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy! Unfortunately it didn’t happen sooner. Thanks to this scumbag, more loosening of the moral fiber of our society occurred.

Sorry, but I can’t say R.I.P.

Taxpayer Calculator: How Much Will the Transition to Digital Medical Records Cost You? | Foxnews.com

September 2, 2010

The question here isn’t the cost involved in going digital. The question is whether the government should be demanding that health care providers go digital. With the passing of the health care reform boondoggle, this requirement to go digital appears to be the latest, and perhaps largest, intrusion into our private lives that the government has perpetrated.

Make no mistake, as the government knows more and more about our personal lives, the propensity with which it will reach out and try to control us will increase. That’s the socialist way! And that’s the way this administration, and too many of our government officials, prefer to play the game of life.

Obama criticizes Republicans on economy | Reuters

July 24, 2010

The article talks about Americans who are weary of the recession… I’ll tell you what Americans are tired of… we’re tired of hearing this liar blame the Bush administration for the current economic problems!

It’s like this phony can go out and experiment with the economy, sign into law the largest tax increase in American history, all with the “Bush card” in his back pocket that he feels gives him the freedom to do whatever he pleases.

On second thought, this is a pretty smart guy who is orchestrating the downfall of the United States in a very organized way. Blaming Bush is just one of the ways he distracts the masses to accomplish his designs.

Wake up America!

Feds to Monitor Obesity as White House Promotes Obama Cook to Senior Position

July 17, 2010

My goodness! Is there nothing that Barack Obama doesn’t have the audacity to do?! My answer to this?

GET OUT OF MY LIFE!!

I refuse to let the government intrude into my private life in this, or any other like manner. Nothing in the Constitution allows for this. Furthermore, nothing in the way God has asked us to deal with one another allows for this. This is nothing but brash, illogical and downright unconscionable.

When will our elected representatives stand up and tell this phony monarch that enough is enough?

Don’t Make the Elderly Angry

March 30, 2010

Yesterday was the first day of residence for my mother-in-law in a senior assisted living center. To say that our family has had a difficult and interesting couple of weeks leading up to this would be an understatement. But, that’s not the reason for this post.

I had been out most of the afternoon while my wife tended to her mother while trying to get her settled into her new apartment. After running my errands, I returned to the center. A lot of hubbub was going on and I found out that our Congressman, Kurt Schrader, had been in to visit with the seniors. It seems that he enjoys doing the senior circuit in Oregon when he’s not cutting backroom deals in Washington. I was really upset that I wasn’t there to see the circus, because if I had just introduced myself to him, he would have known EXACTLY who I am. He’s heard from me many times.

Anyway, he came to the center to talk about health care. WRONG SUBJECT! What Kurt didn’t realize is that NO ONE at the senior center approves of the health care overhaul and that no one would be afraid to call him on it. Like I said, don’t make the elderly angry. I don’t know if Kurt heard the special words that some of the residents had for him while I talked to them, but from what I heard, it was Washington politics as usual.

He couldn’t answer the questions the residents put to him. He couldn’t tell them specifics about the new health care legislation. He dodged questions that were tough for him to answer. I don’t know that he didn’t cut short his visit because he was feeling very uncomfortable with the venue and the atmosphere. The local newspaper was there to cover the visit, after Kurt’s office had called them, but I suspect that the photo op he was looking for will be played down or not mentioned or else he will spin the visit and put it on his website for all the world to see. Oh look, Kurt Schrader is concerned about his constituents. He listens. He helps… more like he’s full of hot air.

To me the most ironic thing about the visit is when I went down to dinner with my mother-in-law a few hours later. There on the dining table was a pocket edition of the Constitution of the United States! This Congressman of ours (a Democrat) had distributed these pamphlets while explaining to his constituents what he knew about the health care reform bill (basically nothing, since I doubt that he or any of his colleagues have read the bill in depth). This man who, along with his party, trashed the Constitution had the nerve to present his message draped in the very document for which he has no respect and which he has been charged (and failed!) to uphold.

I really wish I had been there, but it only would have added to the small group of Americans in that senior center who feel they have been betrayed by those who are supposed to represent us, who work for us, who are supposed to be concerned with our welfare and do our will.

Tea Parties

March 29, 2010

Just a quick note about my feeling about tea parties, particularly the ones held the past couple of weeks as the circus for Obamacare reached its peak. My comments were in answer to an email I received regarding the Starlight Tea Party held on March 28th in Searchlight, Nevada.

The fact that tea parties are just a representative part of all of the US and that the House and Senate STILL ignored us  tells me that the government doesn’t represent me or care about my ideas/feelings. Apparently they don’t care about my vote either, but I hope they get the message loud and clear in November. Whether Republican or Democrat, I think it’s time to move them all out and get some new representatives. Let’s hear it for term limits and for more use of the impeachment power for those representatives who don’t uphold the Constitution.
