I know everybody is having a hard time these days, but I have no choice but to reach out and ask for help.
My heart gave out in February and I had to have open heart surgery. This meant being out of work for four months. Three days after getting out of the hospital my boss fired me for being too sick to do free work after hours.
A couple of weeks after I got home I went back in for treatment of Dressler’s syndrome, basically, inflammation of the lining around the heart. They treated me for that but it is going away slowly. A bit after that I had a really bad day, ended up in the hospital dehydrated with a gall bladder that needed to be removed. That set me back about 10 days
My heart cardiac arteries have been repaired but the echo-cardiogram shows my heart muscles are barely working, which is why I am still fatigued easily and short of breath. I saw m cardiologist June 10th. He did not release me for work. I cannot collect unemployment because I cannot work and the job market is not terriffic right now anyhow, sooooo…. well, you get the picture.
If you can, please help. Whether you can help or not, please pray that nothing else breaks or needs surgery.
Thanks a lot,
Brad and Julie Thompson

The Democrats have sent in the light infantry. (Hey speech police, are we still allowed to type that?)
Texas Congresswoman and Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee really took it to the Republicans and their attempts to repeal healthcare reform recently.
Among Ms. Lee’s comments was a gem calling the repeal unconstitutional! “The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process,” she declared.
She continued, “Can you tell me what’s more unconstitutional than taking away from the people of America their Fifth Amendment rights, their Fourteenth Amendment rights, and the right to equal protection under the law?”
So stealing people’s sweat and treasure to pay for someone else to have healthcare is a-okay?
Hmmm… really, now!
This just makes for more late-night laughs, as the information superhighway is strewn with the wreckage of reckless, ill-informed commentary from Congresswoman Lee. You may occasionally stumble upon one of her myriad attempts at “clarifying” her comments.

May God have mercy on all of us!
Yeah… it is kind of sickening… when the counselor insists the “fetus” (Greek for baby) is not a person.
Margaret Sanger, an early advocate of abortion, heavily promoted eugenics, simply meaning “well born.” Eugenics grew out of the belief of using abortion and euthanasia to clear bad genetics from the gene pool of humanity. It was practiced widely in the early 20th century… most notably in Nazi Germany, but also influenced government in the United States, most notably, the Supreme Court.
In 1927, the U. S. Supreme Court upheld the decision of the Virginia Supreme Court in Buck v. Bell. In the majority opinion, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. writes:
“It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind…
Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
Hmmm… Who is unfit, really, and moreso, who gets to decide?
An interesting relationship in that the proponents of eugenics were also called progressives! These people, backed by science, actually believed they were furthering the evolution of humanity. In fact the founder of eugenics, Francis Galton, was a half-cousin of Charles Darwin. Could it be that all those deaths from Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Hitler and Pol Pot are related?
It is said, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
I fear that all of the atrocities committed in the early part of the 20th century will be repeated, and on a much grander scale. One look at the poilitical and economic landscape reveals much, and then look at those progressives of today and their ties to anti-humanity environmental groups that want to enforce population control!
It scares me, when anyone else, can decide on the personhood of a person. I know it sounds absurd, but there are those who think person at 10 weeks after conception is NOT a person…
I again, give you the silent testimony of this, tiniest unknown person:

DANGER America… ENEMY WITHIN!
Are you paying attention?
There is an enemy that has infected the political system of our country. It has completely infiltrated one party and is on its way to infecting the other.
Why is it that freedom and liberty are at stake and our politicians in Washington are giving us lies and propaganda?Print This Post Filed under government, health, news, views | Tags: change, communism, corruption, Democrats, government, Health Care Reform, Healthcare, Obamacare, politics, progressive, the lie | Comments Off on Democrat Congressman Tom Perriello Admits Congressional Stealing
Watch the following video clip. It is ten seconds, and it is the Speaker of the House, the third in line to the President, pulling a fast one!
This is precisely why this bill cannot and should not pass. Call you representative and demand they vote no on this bill, and any rule change proffered to pass it by procedure requiring no direct vote.
Call the U.S. House of Representatives Switchboard at 202-224-3121 let your voice be heard, today. If you cannot get through, go to house.gov and enter your zip code in the upper left, click go to find your rep and call their local offices!

Dear Mr President,
America wants health care reform. What Americans do not want is a 2000+ page bill that takes complete control of the best health care system in the world.
Start over. Do it a piece at a time. We do not want this horrible bill that was written by union hacks and lobbyists. It is patently obvious that this bill is more about the growth of government leading toward a totalitarian state than it is about health care.
Actually, I look forward to you ramming this monstrosity down our throats. It will mean the end of progressivism in America for a long time. This fall we will vote in a congress that cares about America that will repeal your monstrosity and make America great again.
Do the country a favor. Resign, go back to Indonesia, disappear from politics. With any luck, within a few years, an American that is actually black will get into the White House.
