Leap Day Special

A few weeks ago thousands of young virile males invaded Europe under the guise of being  Syrian refugees. What they are, however, are hypocrites too afraid to fight for their country. The acceptance of these refugees was soundly rejected by We the People.

Obama made a statement on Monday (Nov. 16) at a press conference in Turkey in which he denounced calls for a religious test for refugees and immigrants, saying: “That’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are.”

I know I am late in responding to him but this is what I think:

  1. The Founders specifically meant to separate religion from the state. They knew the dangers of state sponsored religion. Islam is a state sponsored religion. It is a Theocracy. Muslims cannot practice their faith anywhere without also practicing their own laws. It is written in their Koran that they shall slay the Infidel. No matter where they settle they will practice their beliefs. They have been brainwashed since birth in the beliefs of Islam, they will never change. Even if they signed a document to always follow the laws of the USA and the US Constitution, they would not be able to do it and still remain faithful Muslims.
  2. Muslims are not a religion of peace. I always thought they were peaceful with their own fellow muslims and not with the infidels. ISIS has changed my mind on that too. ISIS massacres Muslims in order to establish the Islamic State.
  3. President Obama this is what I say to you. The pictures below do not represent who we are, ISIS is the shameful organization, not us. Since when do American citizens go on rampages to slaughter fellow Americans by crucifixion, and beheading because we don’t agree on religion? You are correct that this is not who we are, a single American is a million times better than all the Muslims in the world.  You are also correct that it is un-American to behave like Muslims. Americans believe in protecting their own. We have proved it many times on many battle fields. You my President are the un-American one who embraces this Theocratical faith and are trying to transform America into a country of Muslim slaves. Islam and our Constitution are not compatible, they cannot co-exist. Perhaps that is why you ignore the Constitution so often in your policy actions.
  4. I agree with Senator Ted Cruz that we should allow only Christian Syrians into the country. Christianity will not radicalize and create terror. Christians know how to separate God’s Law from Caesar’s Law in harmony, and Americans will embrace them.
  5. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

REMEMBER…YOU’RE BEING WARNED OF THE GRAPHIC NATURE OF THESE PHOTOS. IF YOU’RE NOT INTO THE UNMERCIFUL SLAUGHTER OF HUMAN BEINGS….DON’T GO ANY FURTHER AFTER THE VERBIAGE BELOW. PHOTOS ARE AT THE END!

The pictures may be too hard to view. They are gruesome.

Begin forwarded message:

WARNING-STRONG CONTENT — Photo Evidence of ISIS’ Crusade
VERY, VERY ,VERY GRAPHIC

The piece below is by a Canadian. I have taken the liberty to edit it to make it apply to the USA.

Makes you kinda wonder if bringing any Syrians into America this year are those cut from the same cloth?

If you don’t want to really know what is going on in our world, don’t look at this!

It is important that every American see what is going on and it is now at our shore.
The ISIS characters for some unknown reason are evolving from our own citizens.
Those that are speaking to us from, and for ISIS are from our country.
But those that remain naive should know that evil is in the world.
Hitler and Bin Laden and the like are well and will continue to thrive if we permit them to live among us.
As we moved out of Iraq these are the ones that moved in.
There is no one in the world that will stop them if it is not us.
Let me repeat that.
No one will stop them other than us.
If we don’t, the movement will continue to grow.
It is important to know what is going on, especially to those that would rather not regularly watch the news.

VERY GRAPHIC PICTURES

These photos show ISIS brutality in action.
The photos get worse as you progress through them.
They show the ISIS’ treatment of Christians and other “Infidels” in Iraq and Syria.

The photos were received from a Franciscan priest to show with what we are dealing, and to begin to understand what is at hand in order to develop solutions.

Imagine Uncle Managing Your Savings

Social_Security_Card_and_Money_slideshow-2.jpg

This post has been around the country a few times, and I have read it many times. Somehow I never posted it. The more I read it the more upset I get. In fact, as I read it now, I picked up on something that didn’t register before. The government does not contribute a single cent to your Social Security. It is you and your employer who put in the money. Somehow Uncle plays a shell game and switches the pea to a new shell. The government only protects the money for us, and they do a piss-poor job of it. They say they borrow it and when you need it they will pay it back. That must be where they get the idea that it belongs to them. Read this entire piece and you will understand the process better. The worst part of it is that the government always threatens to default on its Social Security obligations when a shut down is nearing. That is so they can get paid first, by using the money we put into the fund for our retirement.

####################################################

Who died before they collected Social Security?

KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS HAD THEOPPORTUNITY TO READ IT…

THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!!!

THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT’S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!

WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?

Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too.  It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.

If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500.

Read that again.

Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?

We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and me that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.

Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.

If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows).

After 49 years of working you’d have $892,919.98.

If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.

THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.

Entitlement my foot; I paid cash for my social security insurance!

Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Remember the benefits for members of Congress?

+          free healthcare,

+          outrageous retirement packages,

+          67 paid holidays,

+          three weeks paid vacation,

+           unlimited paid sick days.

Now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?  They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.

Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.

Sad isn’t it?

99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.

I’m in the 1% 

I JUST DID!

 

Some Things Just Happen

I haven’t bashed Obama in quite awhile so I think I must do it now so you will not think I have fallen in love with him. I received this piece from a friend in Arizona, but I had read it before so it has been around for awhile.

Ugh! If only some of this is true, how low have we sunk to call this man the President of the United States of America?
Any one of these ‘coincidences’ when taken singularly appear to not mean much, but when taken as a whole, a computer would blow a circuit if it had to calculate the odds they have occurred by chance alone.
Sit back, get a favorite beverage, then read and ponder the Obama-related ‘coincidences’, then superimpose the bigger picture of most recent events i.e., Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the NSA revelations, favoring a nuclear Iran over our allies like Israel, but ignoring Ebola, Hamas and ISIS

just happened never to hear because he just happened to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his most enthusiastic, and Obama just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical, and just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.
Obama
Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama
just happened to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he just happened to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of non-writing he just happened to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama just happened never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city.
Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which just happened to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which just happened to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firms Judson Miner
just happened to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers.
Obama
In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks (Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit just happened to result in banks being blackmailed into approving sub-prime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which just happened to spread nationwide, and which just happened to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.

In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the New Party, which just happened to promote Marxism, and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist who just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system.
Obama
In late 1999, Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who just happened to be the gay choir director of Obamas Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church just happened to be murdered, and both murders just happened to have never been solved.

Rashid Khalidi dine with the Obamas

In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas just happened to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers
just happened to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama
just happened to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel will never see a day of peace, and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim childrens’ dance whose performances just happened to include simulated be-headings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine and there has been genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis, and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.

Obama
In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull just happened to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hulls sealed divorce records unsealed, which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary,
so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce just also happened to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he just happened to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.

Aren’t we lucky for all these coincidences??

 

God Love Obama Care

This morning I arrived at the rehab center at eleven. I found Peg sitting in a wheel chair in the dining room deep in conversation with two ladies. I almost felt sorry to break it up. Anna her aid, knew we were leaving today, and hurried to make sure Peg got her lunch early. Just then a bevy of young girls dressed in white pants and a white top descended on the lunch room. An older woman seemed to be their commander.  Their name tags read “Student” in big print with their name below it in small print. Each student was assigned to a senior to assist them with lunch. In this case most of the people there needed to be fed. What struck me funny was the total lack of experience these girls had. They eagerly attacked the job and began by asking their ward what they wanted for lunch by asking to make choices from their menus. One girl held the menu in front of the patient. Gert just flat out told her “I can’t see that.” The girl eagerly switched her strategy to reading the choices. One thing I learned from Peg is that a person with memory problems doesn’t make choices. They expect you to make the choice for them. The girls were eager learners and quickly adapted to a new strategy, and wound up making the choices for their patient. Feeding became another lesson. Initially the girls expected the patient to pick up the knife and fork and begin cutting things up. Gert merely stared at her plate and waited. Again, the young student got the cue and began cutting and feeding.

Gloria Sevilla.jpg

The girl who worked with Gert had beautiful black eyes, long black hair, olive white skin and a beauty that comes with being seventeen or eighteen. She got up to get something and as she passed I noticed her name tag, Jordan Morales. That makes sense I thought, she does look Hispanic, but Jordan? Somehow the name didn’t fit.

Peg finished her lunch and I wheeled her to the room to get the discharge process rolling. The nurse handed me a stack of instructions that looked impressive as heck. Upon returning home I spent about an hour studying them. All I can say is that God love Obama care. If these computerized instructions are what we will rely on to reduce health care costs the country is in a big bunch of trouble. Sure it was all computerized and yes, the entire rehab center was networked, and people were inputing data at many points along the floor. I’m sure someone is looking at reports to decide which aids are inputing data correctly, but does that constitute good care? The instructions are confusing, unclear, and redundant, and basically worthless.

We were glad to be out of there.

The Death Star rolled into the driveway at 1:37 this afternoon. I noticed a strange car parked at our drive with a woman in it. Ahh, the caretaker is early.

Having the caretaker in place allowed me the freedom to visit the drug store to pick up the prescriptions. The nurse gave me all of the drugs she had on hand for Peg. Two of the meds were in liquid form. Being liquid makes them easier to mix with food to hide the terrible taste. I went to Walgreens and asked for those two meds to be in liquid form. “The Doctor has to order it that way,” they said. “Do you want us to call the doctor to get his approval?” “Yes.”

The pharmacist-aid came back a few minutes later to tell me that the drugs I needed in liquid form are only available at pharmacies that have formulation capability. Walgreens did not have the capability. The end result is that I am faced with feeding Peg two horse pills twice a day. As my father kept telling me “don’t get old.”

 

 

Let the Adventure Begin

In thirty minutes I will leave home to venture to the rehab center to pick up Peg. I feel confident that she is well enough to return to her home environment, but with reservation. Yesterday, I hired a full time caretaker, and she will be here by the time Peg and I arrive home.

Peg seemed okay with Donna during the interview. By the time I arrived at eleven, Donna was already visiting with Peg in the dining room. They seem to hit it off, and it made me happy to see Peg smiling and talking. Of course, no one had a clue as to what she was saying, but that doesn’t matter.

This is an adventure because we are accepting a complete stranger into our home to live with us and to care for Peg who is known to flash moments of femalian jealousy when she feels threatened. I have lived through this type of scenario before when I hired a caretaker for my aged Aunt Marie. In that case my deceased wife was not around to get nervous, and Marie didn’t really give a hoot.

JealousWifeShootsHusband.gif

Wish me luck, better yet, say a prayer that all works well.

Lunch At the Home

Today, I had the pleasure of sharing lunch hour with Peg and five ladies at the rehab center. When I arrived Peg was busy in conversation with Gert a short haired little lady to her right. What amazed me was that neither of them have very good hearing. The back ground noise of construction, clattering silverware, and many conversations made it hard to hear anything. Add the fact that Peg and most of the ladies there suffer from dementia and words don’t come to them. Still they were consumed by conversation. I must have missed something, because I haven’t been able to understand anything Peg has said  for the past six months. I did notice that they used a lot of facial expressions, smiles, finger points, and head bobs. Somehow it seems to work for them.

I began spoon feeding Peg, and observed what was going on around us. Across the table was another short-haired, white-haired lady with an extremely sharp chiseled nose named Annette. She was bent over, her head barely above the table. Her son-in-law Ray came to help her eat. He placed a clip board in front of her with a blank sheet of paper, and a pen. Annette began to write. She tried telling him something, but the volume of her voice was a whisper. As weak as her voice was she held the pen firmly and wrote smoothly without hesitation. I never did learn what she wrote, but she filled an entire page before she began to eat. An aid brought her a plate of food which had been macerated. Her ham and cheese sandwich looked like a scoop of pink mashed potatoes. Ray handed her a spoon and Annette took a scoop of the pink stuff and held it under her face. She raised the spoon toward her lips and stopped half way unable to make it to her mouth, her hand dropped. She tried again, but failed. The third time she lifted her hand as far as it would go, and dropped her mouth down to meet it. A vision of Tim Conway of the Carol Burnette show streamed through my mind. Meanwhile, a nurse placed a glass of protein shake in front of Gert. She snubbed her nose at it. A  drip hung from the tip of her nose. She was visibly upset about the drip and slowly raised the edge of the table cloth to blot it. An aide spotted her too late and came running with a handful of kleenex. Gert reached for the protein shake and tipped the glass spilling it across the table. She made the move so smoothly it was hard to tell if she did it on purpose. My guess is she didn’t want to drink it, so she disposed of it.

I sat on Peg’s left, and beside me sat Rose. A very active ninety-two year old Italian lady. She is the only resident not using a wheelchair. She walks to the dining room with her purse hanging off her shoulder and sits at the head of the table. Everyday she has the same thing, heavily buttered raisin toast, a cheese omelet, and two cups of coffee with three creams each. Today, she waits and feels ignored. Not to be left out, she rises from the table and heads for the kitchen to get her coffee. She returns empty handed with an aide following her with the coffee in one hand three creams in the other. Rose sits again pours the three creamers into the coffee. Her omelet arrives. There is no toast, and she waits again. Her greatest enjoyment is to break off a piece of toast and dip it into her coffee and eat it like a biscotti. Having waited long enough she rises and proceeds to the kitchen to get her raisin toast.  “We’re making it Rose,” comes the voice of an aide. Rose returns and two minutes later the toast arrives. Rose is finally happy.

Ready-for-your-Close-Up-How-Not-to-Fake-Smile-for-a-Pic-photo9

Anna, an aid, arrives to encourage Rose to eat. Anna looks across at Peggy and says in her heavy Polish accent “why you not smiling?” Peg stares with contempt at the aid who takes care of her. She has grown to dislike Anna, but cannot tell me why. Then Peg flashes a big toothy and phony smile at Anna, and says, “that’s because you are full of shit.” I almost fell out of my chair.
