Smoking, It's all about Money

Today, Commisar Obama signed into law changes in the cigarette business. Alright, lets put a pencil to all this.
First, he wants to lower the tar and nicotene in cigarettes, Now keep in mind taxes have gone up and will go up more. If you, like I smoke, you have an addiciton to tar and nicotene. When the level is lowered, guess what, you will smoke some more to feed your habit, therefore the government will recieve more funds in taxes due to our increased usage, The deficit that seem to be never ending will recevie increased income, helping to play for the "projects" Obama has proposed. Yes, a percentage will quit, somehow, but the others will find a way to pay.
Think about it, if all smokers laid then down tomorow, the government would go into a depression like never before, They depend on us, we keep the economy afloat, on our lungs.

This is another Obama scam, to pressure SIN tax on us, weither it be smoking, dipping, or chewing. Imagine the Cancer industry if everyone quit, the doctors would have to change to proctology.
They are counting on the inability to quit to fill the coffers.

I am going to try again, just to spite Obama and his wizards, I may get crazy it will be worth it.,

Have a good day, let's burn one, Mitch

I wonder if weed will be next, I hear it is great for MS
My Law enforcement friends and family will have a cow, but if Medical Marijuana works, lets go

Like, " Let's roll another joint, let's take another toke, It's ok to be calm , You don't how it feels, to be me" "Tom Petty"

Gun Permits, the thugs love this

want to applaud the politicians, Law Enforcement Supervisors, and the other anti gun supporters who have so vocally expressed where and where not CWP holders can carry their weapons.
If I were a gang leader, mugger, rapists, or in general bad butt, I would sit down with a map of Hamilton County and Chattanooga, Red Bank, etc, and map out exactly where I could do my activities and not fear a citizen shooting me. Remember, these laws don't apply to me. I will carry my weapons where I please, that's my chosen profession. Even the so called security gaurds are not armed, I have got it made.Me and my co-horts can follow the map and find victims without fear. It's like open season and the Game Wardens are armed with phamplets that say nice.
This is just another example of our society gone made.My permit is due for renewal this fall for $ 50.00 and I will gladly pay it. One thing that has bothered me is let's say I am going to the Smokies for a weekend. I leave Chattanooga and travel the 140 miles through interstates and back roads with my trusty 357 magnum. Being there is no guns allowed there, yet, when I get to the boundry should I throw it out the window? If so, I am going to make a check in station just outside the park and charge $20 dollars for me to check their guns. God forbid someone decided to hold them up in that zone as well. I am sure it will be on the THUG map too.It's a big place, crowded and with plenty of places of hide.

Lord help us all, everything is going to be illegal, except assembly to praise Obama...

Be carefull out there, Still packing Heat

Chattanooga is getting a new VW plant, and Jesse Jackson has arrived

Now that we are better, kinder, wiser country with the election of Presiden Barack Hussein Obama, Reverend Jackson is suddenly more revelant. Despite the comment by Jackson that he wished to nueter Obama, he still knows what we all need.

The VW plant, which Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Hamilton County have purchased, is now a place to play the race card. No one, regardless of race, should be given a job there. Every applicant should be hired by there abilities, not their race. No balance of numbers, based on race, should hinder the owners from having the employees they need. If any race, and I mean any, is not qualified, educated. or has a bad work record, they should NOT be employed.

Reverend Jackson cannot expect any employer to hire anyone just to satisfy his statements. His opinions are just that, an opinion. He can make all the appearances he wants, stir the masses to action, Have marchers picketting VW's temporary office. The bottom line is VW will make their hiring policies to benefit them, no one else and rightfully so.

Also, on that note, Commisar Bredesen was quoted stating the State of Tennessee did not have the funds to "Buy" another GM plant. It appears GM is not trying to hide the fact that their plants are available to the highest bidder.

Reverend Jackson will no doubt be going to GM plants and Chrysler plants to strive for Racial balance. I think these companies have enough problems without having to listen to his babble. I can't wait to hear VW's response to Jackson. I am sure he was lured here as well because of us Southeners and our Racial views.

Maybe his time would be better spent near 4th avenue at midnite, trying to talk to all the shooters, the numbers prove that.

My up to date MRI today.

My new Neuro, Dr. Gibson wanted a new MRI to see what might be causing my new peoblems. I went to Earlanger today and stuck my head in the Boom-Box. It went well, took 2 1/2 hours. Either I have a lot of brain and Spinal Cord to map, or they had a problem trying to find it..Ha

Anyway, for 19 years, I have had a lot of MRI's, maybe 12. As soon as I get the co-pay taken care of, probably be time for another test of some kind. And lets remember, Obama said and the CBO said that SSDI recepients probably will not need a raise until 2013. The cost of lving has not increased according to them, (RIGHT).

Gas prices are rocketing, I spent $ 130 today on meds at the Drug Store, and that is with Medicare D. Also, last year, the premiums went up $ 9 a month for Deanna and I. I need to run a total in what we have spent on meds and premiums this first 6 months.

But remember, we don't need no stinking raise. In the famous words of Marie Antoinette, "Let them eat Cake !". As Obama and Michelle jet around the world, Date night in NY, a trip to Paris, to go shopping, using her own jet to go and return. Don't forget, her mother, the one that lives in the White House, was there also. Talk about a fairy tale life all of a sudden. I bet she has pinched herself so many time, she is dripping blood.

Anyway, wanted to let everybody know they were looking for my MS Brain today.

Remember, all you SSDI Recpients, LIFE IS GOOD!


My head is going to EXPLODE, too much DATA

It should be a peaceful Thursday afternoon. Oscar is resting comforably on the couch, the house is cool.
It is a really hot day with 100 % humidity. Typical Tennessee summer, with a pinch of extra warmth. When I was not affected by MS, I enjoyed these days. As a young lad of 14 or so, I had a bicycle with a steering wheel on it. Yes, that is true. I had a banana seat and a sissy bar. It was blue metalflake and a cheater slick on the back. At first, because the slightest movement made a turn, I wrecked a few time. As time went on, I really got good on this cool bike. We had moved out to the country. We lived in Friendsville, Tennesssee, on the lake. Mom and Dad built their dream home with 400 foot of deep water frontage. I would leave in the morning and explore all the backroads near the lake until dark. Heat was not an issue and I was tanned and looked good.

Anyway, the point of all that is comparing life in 1971 to now. The world and our Government have gone mad. At all points, something bad is going on. North Korea is sailing ships just to get us to move on them, Blow them out of the water, there. Iran is in upheaval, a good thing. Help the opposition, send them 1,000,000 M-16's and ammo, kill the entire government, there. Obama is going on TV daily. Every day he is spending a trillion here 50 Billion here. I have heard all this so much, 500 Billion sounds like pocket change, pretty weird since I have $ 20 in the bank. Impeach him, OBiden, Pelosi, Reid, and every other Democrat. Maybe a peaceful taking over of the govt by the Conservatives and the Military, There. ( Alright, don't call the Secret Service, this is Satire even though Robert Kennedy Jr blames Talk Radio for all the bad things. Cancel the Stimulus, take the money back, stop Tarp, take the money back, Pull out of GM and Chrysler, let them do whatever they will without us, there. Declare ACORN a Terrorist Organization, seize their assets and put the leaders at Gitmo, There. Cancel the closing of Gitmo, go get those damn idiots eating Ice Cream in Bermuda and put them back in their coveralls, there. Also at Gitmo, take away their special diet, prayer rugs, koran, and everything else, open the roofs up and let them work on their tans. Serve Pork BBQ three times a day and keep sending more there everyday, there. All the BBQ will scare the terrorist worst than our army.

North Korea, when they have another parade with all those soldiers doing the chicken step, accidentally drop 100 2,000 lb bombs on their parade grounds, problem solved, there.

I cannot list all this. But one thing is for sure, it's a damn start.

I am severly PO'D, read my lips, I am tired of it all and the time for action is NOW.

Power to the People


Everybody see what Obama has done in the shadows.

By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in migration assistance to the Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza .. The "presidential determination" which allows Palestinians with potential ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States was signed on January 27 and appeared in the Federal Register on February 4. A review of Barack Obama's most recent actions since he was inaugurated:His first call to any head of state as president was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory. His first one-on-one interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted. He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed. He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and 9/11. Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to and live in the US at American taxpayer expense. To verify for yourself:

I am in the mood to write !

You know, sometimes when you wake up in the morning, You just have to vent, again.

It seems like I am doing this alot lately. My mind races at night, finding it difficult to sleep. Sometime I wake up and can't go back to sleep. The movie in my head just keeps rolling. It's not dreams, I am awake. I think about everything. I don't need to make a list. just turn on Fox News, listen to Rush, Sean, Mark Levin, and you will know what I am thinking about.

I also am stuck on what all of this is going to do to Deanna and I. Nationalized Medicine is the next Obama EMERGENCY requiring immediate action. Thats ok, don't read the thing, just sign it, hurry. Just like the stimulus must be passed now, don't read it, we are always right. The world was going to end the next day if they did not hurry. Now look where we are. Obama can no longer blame all this on George W. Bush, this is a mess Obama has created.

Government is already in places it has no business. Take for instance the regulation of medications and tracking each of us by the State of Tennessee. They also know what is best for us, don't question, just follow.

I wish I had gotten involved in Politics when I was younger. I would love to be a screaming voice of reason, a squeeky wheel. I could be the thorn in the side of the bureaucrats. But, I am reduced to my blog and posting my opinions on But, the bad part about that is, the editor/owner of the site, selects and rejects what you send him. There is no gaurantee that your opinion/rant will be posted. I assume some of my more viral writings are too much for prime time. Don't even think about criticizing the powers that be in Chattanooga, the Scenic City.

At one time, Chattanooga was a bustling manufacturing city. The residents earned a higher than average living and as they say, the Middle Class prospered. Then the enviromentalist appeared. The air was too dirty, those nasty factories with all those cars, are too much. You cannot see the precious Lookout Mountain skyline with the smog.

Down came factories, out went the jobs. The air is much cleaner. Most of the jobs now are tourist, festival, and other meaningless endevors. We do have a lot of Insurance Co headquarters here and I don't know why. Maybe us fried chicken, greasy food, tobacoo smoking, overweight, beer guzzling southerners make a good test group to figure out when we are going to die. Insurance Co's are big on trying to figure out how many years they may to pay you on a claim before you croak.

Well, I have vented some, feel better, and am going to get a shower and clean up. It's time for Neal Boortz, Rush at Noon, Hannity at 3 and Levin at 6. You can listen online as I do at AM doesn't come in great up here on Signal Mtn and the Computer sounds great.

Have a wonderful Day and keep your head down.

This is a great explanation I found, HOW MS FEELS

MS Symptoms - What It Feels Like

When we say we can't do something because we don't feel well, put yourself in our shoes by using the examples of our symptoms below---
What You Can do To Understand Painful Heavy Legs... Apply tightly 20 lb ankle weights and 15 lb thigh weights then take a 1 mile walk, clean the house, go shopping and then sit down - how ya' feeling now?
Painful Feet... Put equal or unequal amounts of small pebbles in each shoe then take a walk.
Loss of Feeling in Hands and/or Arms... Put on extra thick gloves and a heavy coat then try and pick up a pencil, if successful, stab yourself in the arm.
Loss of Feeling in Feet and/or Legs... Ask a doc for a shot of novocaine in both of your legs and then try and stand up and walk.
TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia). ..Take an ice pick and jam it into your ear or cheek whenever the wind blows on it, or a stray hair touches it. If you want something easier to do, get someone to punch you in the jaw, preferably daily.
Uncontrollable Itching... Glue or sew small steel wool pads to the inside of your shirt, pants and undergarments wear them for an entire day.
Tingling... Stick your finger in an electrical socket - preferably wet.
Tight Banded Feeling... Put 12 inch wide belt around you and make is as tight as you can and leave it there for the entire day.
Shots... Fill one of our spare needles with saline solution and give yourself a shot every time we do our shot.
Side Effects From the Shot... Bang your head against a wall, wrap yourself in a heating pad, wrap your entire body with an ace bandage tightly then finally treat yourself to some spoiled food or drink.
Trouble Lifting Arms... Apply 20 LB wrist weights and try and reach for something on the highest shelf in your house.
Spasticity... Hook bungee cords to your rear belt loops and rear pant leg cuffs then for your arms hook bungee cords to your shirt collar and cuffs on shirt sleeves then go dancing.
Poor Hearing/Buzzing in Ears...Put a bee in each ear and then put a plug in each one...bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Balance and Walking Problems... Drink 100 proof grain alcohol and then sit and spin in an office chair for 30 minutes, now try and walk.
Urgently Needing to Pee... We put a .5 liter remote controlled water bag and drip tube in your pants, we point out 2 restrooms in a crowded mall, then we tell you that you have 30 seconds before we activate the water bag (by remote control) to get to a restroom. Just for spite we may make that 20 seconds without telling you.
Bizarre and Inexplicable Sensations... Place tiny spiders on your legs or arms and allow them to periodically crawl around throughout the day.
Pins and Needles... Stab yourself repeatedly with needles all over your body or better yet....Get a large tattoo.
Dizziness (Vertigo)... Get on a gently rocking boat all day and all night and take several walks around the deck.
Fatigue... Stay awake for two full days to induce incredible fatigue and then cook dinner, clean the house, walk the dog and see how you feel.
Bowel Problems... Take a 4 day dose of an anti-diarrhea medicine followed directly by a 3 day dose of stool softeners for a minimum of 3 weeks, at the end of 3 weeks sit down on a hard uncushioned chair and stay there till tears appeared.
Burning Feeling... Make a full pot of boiling water and then have someone fill a squirt gun with the boiling water and shoot it at yourself all day long. However, you can give us the pleasure of shooting you instead...optional of course.
Intention Tremor... Hook your body to some type of vibrating machine try and move your legs and arms.....hmmm are you feeling a little shaky?
Buzzing Feeling When Bending Our Heads to Our Chest (L'Hermitte's)... Place an electrical wire on your back and run it all the way down to your feet, then pour water on it and plug it in.
Vision Problems (Optic Neuritis)... Smear vaseline on glasses and then wear them to read the newspaper.
Memory Issues... Have someone make a list of items to shop for and when you come back that person adds two things to the list and then they ask why you didn't get them. When you come back from shopping again they take the list and erase three things and ask why you bought those things.
Foot Drop... Wear one swim fin and take about a 1/2 mile walk.
Depression... Take a trip to the animal shelter everyday and see all the lonely animals with no home. You get attached to one of the animals and when you come back the next day you come in while they are putting her/him asleep.
Fear... Dream that you have lost complete feeling in your feet and when you wake up wiggle your feet, just so happens they don't move. Think about this every night wondering whether something on your body won't work the next day.
Swallowing... Try swallowing the hottest chili pepper you can find.
Heat Intolerance or Feeling Hot When it's Really Not... You are on a nice vacation to Alaska. It's 35° outside and 65° inside. Light a fire for the fireplace and then get into it. Once you have reached about 110° tell me how you feel, even a person without MS would feel bad, now add all of the above symptoms - welcome to our world.
And Finally... After subjecting yourself to the items above, let everyone tell you that you are just under a lot of stress, it's all in your head and that some exercise and counseling is the answer.
(Please note that I didn't write this and don't know who did)

Extra Medical Expenses because it's DRUGS

Today I went to see my new Neurologist. When he came to the hospital and saw me, I was really impessed, today not as much,
First impressions are usually the indicator of things to come. When I hit the door, I had a bad feeling. When I made this appt, they sent me a 6 page package to fill out, I even went as far as designing a form to list meds on and added it to the package. I got it on 5/4/09 and faxed it back that day, complete. Today, I just happened to put in my briefcase, just in case. Well, sure enough, she needed my copies, they could not find hers. Then later she found that they had recieved them.
Anyway, got in the exam room and the Neuro came in. We talked about pain, current meds, legal problems with the POLICE when drving, and how it all works. Guess what, He did not know that driving on these meds is D.U.I. in Tennessee.
He told me in the Hospital that he could handle all the meds. Now, He tells me he wants to send me to Pain Management to handle my meds.
That means, A co-pay for him, a co-pay for the Drug Police ( Pain Management ), and a co-pay for my Primary Provider. So, we are going from one to three, just because, and he admitted it, They are all scared of the STATE OF TENNESSEE. The state is monitoring every script they write in a huge database. If they get on the wrong side of these people, they will be audited until they can no longer practice medicine for the inspectors standing in the halls.

The STATE has placed such a deep fear in the doctors it is unbelieveable. He told me, the STATE is trying to make them unpaid POLICE OFFICERS.

I have been to the circus at Pain Management once before, I would rather have my fingernails removed with a pair of pliers, but it looks like I have no choice.

When I made a comment that I was going to be paying more to everybody, the Neuro said, " you have to do what you have to do ".

Obama is getting to make it all worse with National health care, God help us all.


Oh My God, This woman had 20 GUNS !

I saw this morning on the Drive-By media television program, that a 63 year old lady had been in a standoff with Chattanooga SWAT.
Evidently, there had been a report that she had discharged a gun outside her home, earlier that day. Based on an absence of information, we have to assume she would not "comply" and come outside as "ordered". When she would not comply, Chattanooga SWAT responded to the desperate standoff. After 3 hours and intense negotiation ( I assume ), talks failed and tear gas was shot thru the windows of her home. She then surrendered and complied.
The major story is, she had guns. Not 3, or 5 but 20 ! This is the kicker.
I think it is still legal to own guns. As long as they are not stolen or illegal, you know, altered. I don't know, based on an absence of information, if the guns were left in place or somehow were confiscated. Maybe there will be more info later.
I know a 63 year old is just as dangerous as a 23 year old when pointing a gun at someone. Living on 5th ave, she probably felt she needed the weapons to protect herself. It was publicized in the past year or so that Chattanooga PD had stated they could not protect everyone. Some others even suggested that the public arm themselves. Since President Obama was elected Gun sales have increased over 10%. That turned out to be a stimulus. Maybe the 63 year old lady has invested in these guns to provide stimulus.
How many guns do you have in your house and how many does the Media and Law Enforcement think is too much?

D-Day, Terrorism, and the World we live in.

65 years ago, Allied forces moved onto the beaches of Normandy. Today, many of these heroes are buried beneath the green grass of French soil. All these men, knew how important their contribution was. The did not think of themselves as heroes, just men fighting for the freedom of an oppressed continent. This set into the moition the defeat of Nazi Germany, paved along the way in the blood of Americans.
Today, we face enemies both abroad and on our own soil. These enemies are cowards, cloaked in darkness and faces hidden from view. This is a religious war. A war based on the extreme beliefs of Islamic Terrorists. They have one goal, to kill Americans anywhere, as the opportunity permits. When you fight a force that has no concern for their own survival, based on a concept that death resulting from killing the enemy is a blessing, there is but own fact. Kill them before they kill you. These is no debate, no reaching out. All that will come from attempting to communicate is an ambush.
President Bush knew this fact. For 7 years, he prevented any American blood to be spilled on our soil. His efforts, the brave efforts of our military, resulted in alot of Terrorist acheiving their goal of death. This is the facts. We are at war. No amount of feel good will prevent another attack. We need to go into Afghanistan with the assumption that everyone is a terrorist. As the old Marine Corp T-shirt says, "Kill them all, Let God sort them out."

I fear we are being lulled into a deep false sense of security. President Obama honestly believes that after his series of "addresses" to the Muslim world, we can rest easy. Wrong....
These people, and I use that term loosely, believe that he is weak. The next grand plan is probably being developed while Obama goes out on date night with Michelle. By the way, their last getaway to New York cost taxpayers more than $ 100.000.

We cannot rest, dreaming that Obama is going to somehow make nice with everyone. I hope and pray somewhere in the Pentagon, some rogue general is paying attention and planning very large strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, N. Korea, Indonesia, and any other country that is a threat to the United States of America.

Afghanistan and Iran can become lakes for all I care, glowing at night for the next 1,000 years.

Come on folks, lets all support strength. I would much rather be feared than loved in the Islamic World.

Good Day and Godspeed, Mitch
