Healthcare conflict

I ahve an friend who is trying to help a disabled person.He is confined to a wheelcare .He has had 27 surgeries so far.I asked her to send me more information on him and to include some pictures.Why? Because this guy seems caught in the trap.Cant get money or taxes and disability payment eats it.He lives in a garden shed on some land that someone lets him stay for free.A garden shed and hes confined to a wheelchair.
People are trying to help .They bargained for a foundation on this land to build a small home.Government interfered again.Now I said maybe someone can set up a trust fund for him?Anyone know?
He seems in a rut and stuck.How can out government give 20 billion dollars to a rich nation like Saudi Arabia and 30 billion to ISRAEL and not take care of there own people?Oh yeah this is in Texas too.
I will post some pics as soon as they arrive and update the information.I just found out today.Keep looking and when the pics are up maybe someone will have some info on what may be done.
Thanks and god blessDirectory of General Blogs

bargain

Well I sold my ride,It was a 1992 Geo tracker that I got for free on craigslist.
The young man that had it couldn't get it to start.Changed the battery and cables filter oil and even looked at the ignition switch.Too bad he didn't look at the fuses.
Yep it was a fuse not in right.Seems he had put a stereo in and put a hot wire in too the fuse box.The wrong way too.He put it direct to the fuse and that caused a dissimilar metal to corrode. Well after a damp time it wouldn't start.
So dad bought him a new one and he gave it to me.
I drove it for 3 months and it got 32 mpg had a/c and all i put on it was a mirror.Sold it for 1200.00
Is that a bargain or what?Directory of General Blogs

Amazon destruction being curtailed

Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has welcomed new figures showing that the destruction of the Amazon rainforest has decreased by 25%.

President Lula said this had prevented the release of millions of tonnes of CO2 gas into the atmosphere.

The government says environmental policies, including measures against illegal logging, have had an effect.

Environmentalists welcomed the figures, but said falling commodity prices and economic conditions were also a factor.

Violence

I don't understand my oldest child's fears? He is always angry about nothing.Today he punched a wall.Again.This time the wall was concrete.Maybe its broken but I doubt it.
What was it this time? Well he has to go to a school dance.It is mandatory.By me not the school.He gets a upgrade in the school points system and he needs all the help he can get.Not that he doesn't try.This boy tries so hard to do well it is saddening sometimes .And the other one sleeps all the time even in class and has good grades.Although i am on him to do more.But the oldest just stays angry.
What to do.
This school function is a dance so i do not understand.I know he is infatuated with girls.
Hes m15 by the way.
And to be able to up his grade by going to a dance is a gimme in my book.
Well i talk him down to calm every time.I don't know how since My dad left when I was 3 and started another family.
Where does it comes from ?Only God knows.And i pray each day my son will leave this demon out one day.He is such a good boy

Big business now censoring free speech

Directory of General BlogsA.T&T is now censoring content that they deem not suitable.Specifically at the broadcast loopalzooza they cut sections out of the band:pearl jam:s music.In fact two different songs that had words THEY determined were not suitable to family situation
What were the words you ask? Well it was really censoring thee song that had a course about The President that may or may not be negative depending on how you interpret it.
Of course they said it was an accident after fans called the band and notified them that certain :shall we say :political : parts were sung.And it was 2 different songs so there is no way it was an accident.
After all aren't they already spying for the government?
I used to be a strict loyalist to A.T&T but lately they have done wrong in my eyes.
For me this is the third strike.You are out.
See big business is what runs this country now.No more individuality or freedoms.

Vote them out.Elect new senators,congress, mayor fire chief.Show them we want our country back.

Money lost?
First it was 1 trillion dollars missing as per the bush administration.Reported by Mr rumsfield.Now there is 2.3 trillion missing also as per the gao.Under the watchful eye of some dual national guy appointd to his position.By the way he resigned.Why is no one doing anything? Oh and also there is 190000 weapons missing in IRAQ.WTF?> And the guy in charge of handling the weapons at the time? Guess who. The same general in charge of Iraq now. gen P.
So where does this money come from? And who is it going to?Lots of questions and no one is asking.Are you afraid?
I am.Because if i was to lose that kind of change heads would roll but when government employees lose it nothing,NOTHING.happens
Call and voice your opinion now and come election time vote them all out.
Its time for a real change.

Depressed

Ever have one of those blah days?
Well for me today is that day.It turned out fine when I woke up but I felt different.I knew today was going to be a depressing day but not this low.Yes I'm not crazy its just that ever since my accident I tend to feel the weather changes coming ,the migraines and the depression.I have been keeping a daily diary and it needs to be updated.
I think i will start putting input of the weather just to see if my diagnoses is correct.Because the quacks i mean doctors don't seem to care.
I mean I go to them and then they ask the same boring questions and then when I talk they don't listen or say no one can feel the weather its a wives tail. Yeah right.
It did storm today and rained off and on.
Which is a good thing in the desert but I can't seem to break this depression mode .
Only when I sleep do I not feel it.I can't sleep all the time.
One day I would like to get up and be how I was before the accident.But now only i know I'm down I look the same and dress the same.And people still ignore me because hey I'm a scary looking guy to most.
Need someone to scare you ex I'm the guy.Need to get that friend away from you daughter or son?I'm the one.I did it once for a friend a long time ago.His 12 year old daughter was seeing a 18 year old.He couldn't talk with his daughter or convince her to stop.SO one day at his house he asked me to put the scare in this boy.
All i did was when the 2 came back to the house i just went up to the girl and hugged her which was normal and glared at him with a look that could kill.After being introduced as a close friend the daughter went to get a drink in the kitchen for here boyfriend.Well i used the time to lean over and say that i sure don't want to go to prison again for someone like him.
She complained to her dad the next day that her boyfriend dumped her for some unknown reason.Which gave him the opportunity to say "see I knew he was no good: after that she went back to her own age group never trusting older guys and always asking her parents for advice.Directory of General Blogs

VOTE

OK so today I see that the senate still has not published who voted for/against signing the wiretap bill.What are they hiding and why are the voters not allowed to see?
who cares? Well i\I for one think the American voters have the right to know,so as I've stated in other posts,Vote them out.See they think they have total control and as American voter we have the right to know if OUR decisions are being met.I believe it is our decision not special interests .SO get them out vote them all out .Lets put some new people in .

Same ole Brasil

This is normal.When the poor paid employees don't like something they strike.Not like here where you are afraid you would loose your job.Of course you would.Brazilians have more rights than Americans hands down.If you get fired in Brasil you continue to get paid for a long time.Even if you get another job.Ans they get up to 6 months vacation a year paid.If they decide to work they get paid triple time and if a holiday happens to come they get it off and get paid too.
The American government in Brasil gets Brasilian and American holidays and get paid.In Brasil there are lots of holidays so we pay government people to live in Brazil and work total of 5 months.

SAO PAULO, Aug. 3 (UPI) --
A subway strike that brought Brazil's largest city to a standstill ended Friday after two days of gridlock and long lines at bus stops.

The workers returned to the job decided to return to work Friday evening after forcing two of the city's four main subways to shut down.

Sao Paulo state Gov. Jose Serra said that the workers who went on strike would be fired, Agencia Estado reported Friday.

Subway workers went on strike after demanding, then not receiving, bonuses that were promised to them.

OK NOW I MAD

Today i see that someone in congress is pushing to give a 30 billion dollar tax break to china mart,I mean Waly mart.Come on .They don't even treat their employees well and now they need a tax break.The biggest retailer in the world.Hell they don't even pay their baggers in Mexico.That's right they work only on tips that they may or may not get.
You know what it is time for some trickle up economics.Give people who make under 100,000.00 a year a tax break.No taxes what so ever for ten years lets say.It would be a boom.
People would scramble to buy more the retailers would make a better profit more items sold need for more workers.AND who pays for it?
How about the DOD, they have at least one trillion dollars floating around so let them pay.Its out money anywhere.Why does the DOD need all that they get.SO they can train foreign pilots how to fly under telephone wires in Arizona.
yeah it happened they flew a helicopter into a high tension power grid landed and when the news asked for info on who it was no one knew.When the sheriff was told the news never said anything after that.No one knew why they had no power for 2 days/
Its because they were training foreigners how to fly under the radar so to speak.
SO there is the funds to pay for this.Stop training people for free and give the USA its money back.Lets get this going.Directory of General Blogs

A Bridge of Shame

Directory of General Blogs
If I didn't do my job(when I was working)I would be let go for neglect or insubordination.Why do the voters allow the same politicians to stay in POWER?You need to vote them out.The country was designed to replace politicians not for it to become a career.
So now a bridge falls and kills who knows how many at this point.We pay taxes and extra taxes in gas revenue to make these road repairs and that includes bridges to be replaced when the are in disrepair.The politicians that pork the money to there special interest groups need to be fired too.
It won;t happen until the voters change their attitude.The last two times I voted I did not vote for one person that was currently in seat.I always vote to put someone new in.These old cronies have enough and we need a fresh AMERICA.Not a walker politician that never sees the real people.CHANGE THE VOTE

WHO's Afraid of ME?

It turns out that allot of people are.Its not that I'm mean its that I was born mean looking.I can walk into anyplace and people will become nervous.Ive been told by fellow workers that when they first met me they new I would murder them.I have always noticed that some will stay clear for awhile.It is only after a few months that people will start to be at ease with me.That is not the case with my family of course because they grew up around me and my wife is blind.
When my boys ask why there friends wont come over I have to explain that TV categorizes looks into good bad etc.
But its always the nice looking ones that are the worst. In my opinion.
If you need someone to come scare off an ex just hire me.I guarantee that they will back down and high tail it away.All I need is a meal and a cot.
Strange but little kids really like me .I was at the orphanage one day and there was a 4 year old just brought in.She wouldn't talk to anyone and would stay away from the other kids but the director took us in her room and she got out of bed and just came to me.I was in tears as she hugged me and called me papai.
I spent the 3 hours there playing with her and getting her to play with the other children.It was sad to go but i will never forget that little child.
The day is coming close to finish the adoption and I still don't have the funds to go.
Do you think ill make it there?
Leave a comment
If you want to adopt in Brazil let me know because I know more than the international people and they want all your money without care.

Fear of Flying

Directory of General Blogs

A lot of people still have a fear of flying and with the recent accidents it makes it much worse.Having flown for many years in aircraft that was being repaired or to see what a problem might be.Its called a maintenance flight.
I can assure you that it is safer to fly than ride in a car.The odds of dying in an airplane are like 1 in 25 million.versus the odds in a car.A car accident is 1 in 5000.
Do you like the odds?
The reason you are scared is you aren't driving the plane so you feel unprotected but believe me their are many pilots with many skills and lots of hours.If you just relax and think it is a bus trip then you will be okay.

Family Funnies

True .My mother in law is one of those people that if she doesn't do it it was done wrong.
I made dinner and all she could say was its OK.But if I was to say that to her she would run to her room and cry for 2 days.One day my wife and I were complaining that we itched all the time.I thought it strange that only we did until I asked the boys.They both said that's why they shower 4 times a day.So I question my wife on what laundry detergent she was using cause maybe it was the soap.Well she assured me that it was not the soap.
So I assisted her in doing the laundry one day and saw what brand she used.It seemed to be a good one.After starting the first load we retired to the den to watch a show when I noticed her mom go upstairs.
The laundry room is there and I heard the washing machine get louder.Hey someone went into the laundry room.At that moment the washer stopped and I
know I heard the door shut .Then the machine started again.
So now I'm thinking she put more clothes in but maybe not.
Well after the show I went up and put the washed clothed in the dryer and a new load in the washer.But just to be sure I marked the soap box on where the level was and placed a dime on top.
Sure enough as soon as I came down up goes the mom.Off goes the machine then back on.
After the machine stopped I went up removed the dry clothes folded them and proceeded to remove the second load.But first I checked for the dime.GONE.And the soap level was down too.
After a conversation with my wife she questioned her mother and she admitted to putting soap in but accused me of not putting it in.
Itchy problem solved.She was doubling the soap amount and we were getting it on our skin which was causing us to itch.She still goes in and adds soap to this day because only she knows the right amount and we couldn't possibly know how to wash clothes.
The funny thing is we have 1 of those new washer that requires little soap and you can only put so much in.So she was complaining after we told her that this machine uses less water and soap.Now I'm waiting to see how she adds more water.

True meaning? Just read

This is not a Nazi symbal although it was adoprted by the germans in ww2.It is from the hindus which I beleive this young man is.It can be found on roman arcitecture and eurasion stuctures from all periods.But it is only recognised by the western world as a bad symbal.

To those you think they are smarter


A turkey was chatting with a bull “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.

63 MPG CAR

Honda announced that in 2010 a diesel Honda accord will be available that gets a whopping 62.8 MPG.
I know i put 63 but imagine what some people that fine tune there cars will get 75 85 MPG? It is strange that the so called big 3 haven't even come close.When are the old executives going to let new fresh ideas come in and get this American market booming?
Of course diesel is more expensive here in the US and for what i don't know.Any other country the diesel is cheaper.Maybe the refiners turn oil into gas first and then revert it back to diesel.You see diesel is cheaper to manufacture than gas but then since the trucks and farm machinery use diesel the big conglomerates want to squeeze all those pennies from your wallet.
But at least we will have a better manufactured car that lasts longer and gets better MPG than the BIG 3.Directory of General Blogs
