October was the Month from Hell

I will write more, Our Health has veen terrible..

I Think we are screwed

am still in shock. I am no fan of Bill O'Reilly, but he nailed it last night. He said we are no longer a nation that can roll up its sleeves and get the job done, we are a nation of "gimme something" mindless twits who don't understand that this great nation is eroding under their eyes. I pray that God will protect this country....

It Never goes away, "Oh you look so good"...

My brother Jim, is in a Nursing Home in Etowah Tn, which is one of the cleanest, let me rephrase that, THE cleanest NH I have ever seen. More on that later in another post. My last visit, I had the chance to meet the administrator, A very young, energetict young man by the name of Bartlett. I spent about 20 minutes in his office, speaking of Jim's care and his challenges, all of which Bartlett was totally aware of and had a plan of action to fix.. Late in the conversation I mentioned I had MS for a total of 22 years. A look of shock came across his face and he uttered the imfamous worfs, "But, Oh you look so good." I was polite and was determined not o ive him a short primer on MS. I thanked hin and ais "Yes, God has blessed me and I know it. I still have some sever symptoms, especially mental, but I am blessed." His experience as you can imagine with MS patients is the very worse, not someone like me. My opinion of him after spending time with me and the special interest he had in Jim left me going away with a very positive impression of him. He has a difficult job and based on his experience, even though young has him in the perfect place. My years of management and supervising tought me you handle Managers me long ago that everything starts at the top. The absolute spotless enviroment, the happy employees, the happy residents, It all starts at the top. I hope the management who are his supervisors have enough simce to appreciate what they have.\\ Jim continues to improve, they have him walking on the paralell bars, weight traini ng, and most important he goes to Etowah hospital for another swallowing test. Bartlett was with Jim 15 minutes the other day when he choked on a piece of pork with breading. Choked for about 15 minutes and in Barlett's exact words,"Freaked Him Out".. Ford Sanders was supposed to did a swallowing study and claimed he passed it, Bartlett does not beleive it and that is on out side. Every Pray for Jim,,,Thanks, Mitch

Brad Pitt's Mother's Anti Obama Opinion..Excellent

I have given much thought to Richard Stoecker’s letter (“Vote for Mormon against beliefs,” June 15). I am also a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion. But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon. Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama — a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage. I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.

The AWFUL Effects of Meniere's Disease/Syndrome

My Dear Deanna was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease in 2001/2002. Meniere's is a condition where the inner ear fluid is either too thick or possibly overfull. The only way to know for sure is during an autopsy after death. Meniere's is diagnosed by a elimination of any other disease. There is no actual test or whatever to diagnose Meniere's (MD). Deanna started back in 2001 out of the blue. Extreme Vertigo, and following the Vertigo, Nausea, Vomiting, and exhaustion. Her primary care physician reffered her to an ENT, who tried various treatments and test. The best results, or should I say the only results came from a medication called Antivert. Antivert and Phenegran became her constant companions for 7 months. She did not drive. She was in Bed most of the time except to take a shower or go to the bathroom. At times the vertigo was so bad, she would have to crawl on her hands and knees and I would tap on her shoulder to turn one way or the other. Finally, about 5-6 years ago, it improved, and went into remission. Every now or then she could turn one way or the other too quick and have a moment of spin. The experts say that it will finally go away after 15-20 years. Of course, the things that help are, (and you already know) Quit Smoking, ELIMINATE STRESS< yeah right > No Caffiene, get excercise, lose weight if you need to,yada yada. Recently, she was stressed out of her mind by one of the Grandkids, she told me some highlights but have held some details back. Last week, The Meniere's is Back DAMN IT. She is living on Antivert/Phenegran. I hope it subsides, she is miserable. I am doing all I can to help her. I will write more as time passes, Mitch

I have held back as long as I can, the Pressure valve is bursting.

I know some of you disapprove of me quoting Rush limbaugh, Mark Levin, and Other. Rush, Has renamed President Barack hussein Obama as Presiden Kardashian. He has as usual, hit it on the head. Obama is a showman, a celebrity, a person so in Love with them selves that he feels his mere presence is a blessing on the Lemmings below him. His Minions walk in lockstep. For Example, His attempt to gather hispanic votes by allowing a "path to citizenship" to a young hispanic who meets this or that requirement. Let me entertain you with some news coverage of this Emperor without clothes. Rush Limbaugh, asserting that President Barack Obama spends too much time courting celebrities for campaign cash and endorsements during times of financial hardship for average Americans, referred to him as "Barack Kardashian." The White House responded in kind. "Two words: Donald Trump. Next question," said Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney, when asked about Limbaugh's most recent ridicule of his boss. Trump, an outspoken supporter of Mitt Romney, has become a foil for Obama since he started fueling "birther" claims that Obama was born overseas. Carney's comments aboard Air Force One came as Obama jetted to California for a set of fundraisers, one at the home of Glee creator Ryan Murphy. Obama's re-election bid has also harnessed the power of celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, George Clooney and Jon Bon Jovi, among many others. On Tuesday, Limbaugh hammered Obama's celebrity connections, highlighting his 2012 campaign's latest ad, starring Vogue editor Anna Wintour: "It's an indication once again how out of touch they really are, how distanced they have become from the people who make this country work." "It's an indication of what they think the strong drawing power of the presidency is. I'll tell you that's what's becoming. He's Barack Kardashian." "He is becoming the male Kim Kardashian with this stuff," Limbaugh said. SIDE NOTE: Obama has said that he doesn't let his daughters watch the Kardashians, and also famously called Kanye West a jackass. Just saying. SIDE NOTE #2: Kim's management team has yet to fire off a vapid Tweet about this, followed by a plug for some lame product. But give it an hour. Asked if the president might be sending the wrong message, Carney said Obama's millions of mostly unknown small donors reflect his true nature. "The difference between President Obama's support, financial support, and his opponent's is stark, but not in the way that you describe," he said. "The fundamental difference is President Obama has vast numbers of small donors who support him. That is not the case for the Republican nominee." "The fact that the president enjoys that kind of support speaks to what his policy priorities are. He's out there fighting for the middle class." "The bedrock foundation of his support are millions of Americans who believe in his vision for this country's future and believe that he has their back." As for whether Obama is actually a fan of Murphy and Glee, Carney deferred. "I don't know the answer to your question," he said, unamused. If the election were held today, for whom would you vote? ANOTHER GOODIE< Indulge me PLEASE ! So many celebrities for President Barack Obama to visit ... and so little time between now and Election Day. So the Obama campaign wants you to help the Commander-in-Chief decide which lucky star will rub elbows with him, according to The Hollywood Reporter: Hard on the heels of the wildly successful online lotteries that allowed ordinary Obama backers to win the opportunity to dine with the chief executive and George Clooney at his Laurel Canyon pad or Sarah Jessica Parker and Vogue’s Anna Wintour at the actress’ Manhattan home, the fundraisers have added a new twist to the “Dinner With Barack” series. This time around, a suggested donation of $3 not only gives you a chance to bring a guest of your choice to dinner with Obama, but also the opportunity to “weigh in on who you think should join President Obama.” (The date and place for the dinner have yet to be determined.) It remains to be seen how the voting public will take to this latest fundraising gambit by the administration. The jobs outlook isn't getting any rosier, and even left-leaning media watcher Howard Kurtz suspects this message is the wrong one to send to undecided voters. "It certainly helps him raise money … I think there’s too much emphasis on it. You only get to drive one message during the static that surrounds the presidential campaign. If that message is about Sarah Jessica Parker and George Clooney, then he's not talking about how he’s going to fix the economy, which of course is probably the main issue." And Last but not least Obama made his second appearance on The View today, a fairly unorthodox forum in which a sitting president can be challenged, and unorthodox challenges he met: questions about how he really felt about Vice President Joe Biden, how he could improve the economy more than Mitt Romney, and which Kardashian is the one with the recent divorce. Indicative of the atmosphere? An exchange in the second segment where Barbara Walters noted, “this is the first time we have all sat down and spoken without crosstalk,” to which the President remarked it made him a bit ill at ease: “you’re all so well-behaved!” RELATED: The View Panel Tussles Over The Question: ‘Is Obama Too Cool?’ “I like hanging out with women,” the President said with a smile, before going into a discussion on his stance on gay marriage. Joy Behar brought up the rumor that it was possible the President would announce his support on the program, which he confirmed was “a possibility.” He also noted that he was “okay” with the Vice President jumping the gun on the official White House stance because “it came out of a generosity of spirit.” “I’m never going to blame anyone for telling what they believe,” he reiterated, adding a stance he had previously been public about– thinking the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and being in favor of civil unions, but adding that “meeting people, friends, family, in wonderful relationships, who tell me words matter” helped change his position on marriage. Still, he noted that it was “important for us to make sure that churches and religious institutions are respected” in the way they govern. Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked the President to distinguish his stance with Romney’s, since the latter had also supported civil unions. The distinction for the President was clear: “Romney wants a constitutional amendment.” The President also got to speak about his family for some time– as Sherri Shepherd wondered whether, after his impromptu Al Green performance at the Apollo, “were Malia and Sasha embarrassed or are you their ringtone?” “You’re just the right amount of embarrassing,” the President quoted his eldest as saying. In a different segment, he also spoke about the economy and banking regulation, and gave his opinion on the JP Morgan investigation. After a pop culture quiz in which the President admitted to knowing which Kardashian recently got divorced (“because he was a baller,” he says of Kris Humphries to excuse himself) and claimed not to know the book Fifty Shades of Grey (“I’ll ask Michelle what’s going on when I get home), the President spoke about basketball for some time and explained the rules in the house for the two girls– no cell phones, TV, or internet on weekdays save for school, and no Facebook. As all The View episodes should end, this one concluded with Barbara Walters confessing to taking some White House napkins once in a while, to which the President jokingly replied he had the Secret Service on her. The President’s discussion on same-sex marriage, followed by the family talk and pop culture quiz, in two clips via ABC below: I have now removed some of my feelings, I promise much more to come.......Mitch

Medicare Advantage, As I see It

Ok, Now there is a huge explosion in the Media regarding Medicare Advantage Plans. The only places that it is not popular is the drive by Media. I signed Deanna and I both up for Humana's Advantage Plan 2 years ago. I liked the fact there was no annual $250 deductible at the first of the year at the Dr's office. The real benefit was when Deanna had to have surgery in Dec 2011. Under the regualar Medicare plan we had been under years past, we would have ended up paying about $3500 in co-pays. Our Copay for her entire surgery ? $100.... Now the Obama admin is hiding the fact under Obamacare, the Advantage plans go belly up starting in fall 2012 and into 2013 and 2014. Most members as I understand it will be thrown back into traditional Medicare. I don't want it. We have our premiums taken out of our checks auto. IT IS NOT FREE< WE PAY FOR IT, Duh! We are happy. Advantage plans have been around for a long time. Obama has targeted it as a Cadillac plan. Well Hell. I did not know I had a Cadillac. Obama is trying to move 8 Billion, yes BILLION Dollars into Medicare to do as an "Experiment" on the Advantage Plans No not an experiment, hide the cuts under Obamacare until after the Election. Slick Willy (BILL CLINTON) has nothing on Joe Cool Obama, Our Young vibrabt President has lived a life of royalty in the White House, Now he needs to go wherever he will retire. Of Course, you realize we will be keeping him and his family up for the rest of their lives. Spread this to all the Disabled folks you know, Obamacare is coming after us. More to Come, Mitch

On a Rainy Thursday Evening Jan 26, 2012

As I sit on this rainy evening it is really dull outside. The scanner is chatting and I am listening to last nights Mark Levin show on the internetm gotta love it.

At this point, which I still think could change, I support Newt Gingrich for President of the United States.
Romney needs to be President, Gingrich needs to serve as President. Big Difference.
Gingrich pledges to Overturn Obamacare, which I favor except for the provision on Medicare Part D which provides for a 50% cut in price on generic meds when in the doughnut hole, which Deanna and I will hit by May 1.
I am a Conservative, but, I also receive Social Security Disabiliity. Even though I am Conservative, The disabled are in the position we are in thru no fault of our own. We worked, paid into the SS System and are gauranteed this provision by law. We have been short changed over the last 2 years, not receiving a cost of living increase, and beleive me the cost of living is really increasing.

More to come...Mitch
