September 12, 2014, 1:27 pmAnd it starts!
Just opened the cable bill, up another 11 dollars. Can't seem to get through. all the operators are busy with other customers. Gee, I wonder why?
I'll be shopping for another carrier, if I can't get a reasonable rate, I will have to go cable free.
I'll wait for Walking Dead on DVD and listen to Red Wing Hockey on Radio.
September 10, 2014, 8:29 amDo your Homework
Looks like think progressive is putting another spin on things.
Watch the Fox special Bret Baier's special on Benghazi .
Watch the interview with Mike Rogers and Steve Doocy about the Benghazi attacks.
Then watch the interview with the greedy lawyers.
Decide for yourself from the spoken words of these people, not from some commie named Igor with an agenda.
I watched all 3, The problem was not with the ground commander, but with the State Department and that folks, is the smoking gun they have yet to get to the bottom of.
The fact remains Christopher Stevens called for help, none came, a Marine called the guys from the Annex, after they assessed the situation they went to help and ended up in a 13 hour gun battle with terrorists before help arrived.
The question we need to know, Who in the State Department did Chris Call? And why didn't they send help?
Do you homework, some people are gullible and just take things for face value when they have an agenda !
September 9, 2014, 11:53 pmI can't believe this
If you get a chance read this article:
EBOLA EVACS TO U.S. GREATER THAN PREVIOUSLY KNOWN
The air ambulance has flown 10 other Ebola missions into the United States, as well as the 4 we know about,
This was done under the authority of the State Dept.
Why the big secret ?
September 7, 2014, 12:39 pmWe've got sick kids.
Colorado, Kansas, Illinois, Ohio
Over 900 in Denver alone, a disease called Enterovirus D68 is making the rounds, Children under 12 seem to be at the greatest risk.
I just have to wonder how many sick border children were sent to these 4 states and if the disease will pop up all over.
Our Government put sick people on buses and sent them all over the United States.
Our Government put sick people on buses and sent them all over the United States.
Our Government put sick people on buses and sent them all over the Untied States.
IS IT SINKING IN YET?
DO YOU UNDERSTAND YET?
September 6, 2014, 11:56 pmMayhem or a glimpse ?
We lost power last night around 8 pm, newsman said big storm on the way, we have a generator so we can keep the fridge cold and have a few lights. We can't run the computer or tv, cause it's not on the same circuit or whatever it's called.
We've been going through this all summer, bad storm after bad storm.
This is not the story, my story begins at work. I worked the 10 to 4 shift today, got to work and found out we also lost power and our phone lines, we were on a generator also.
We put big signs on the doors saying CASH ONLY, We CANNOT process EBT, CREDIT, DEBIT OR CHECKS
NO PHONE LINES
We had a guy at the door telling every customer....cash only
When the customer got to the check out once again we reminded them, CASH ONLY!
Can you guess how many people loaded up carts anyway?
Can you guess how many people let us process their transactions knowing this? If you said all the EBT people you would be correct, if you said one in five credit card customers, you would be correct. This is where the mayhem begins, constantly calling managers to void transactions, calling stockers to put all the food away.
Somehow people thought things would magically be fixed since they were there, or that they could lie to us and we would process orders just for them, then we got the threats, name calling, and horrific lies.
Here's some of the fun things I heard today
But I have EBT,
But I have American express
But I have to keep my insulin cold
But I have kids
But I don't have time to go to another store
But I have to go to work
But I just had surgery
You all are just racist
I'm calling the attorney general
I'm calling corporate
You'll run my card or you'll be fired.
This wasn't 1 or 2 people, this was 6 straight hours of people refusing to believe the phones lines and power outage could cause this.
Thick headed stupidity ruled the day.
I have no kind words for people who were told over and over ( sound familiar) no phone lines, no processing electronic transactions.
This gave me a glimpse at just how unprepared people are, everyone knew the storm was coming, everyone knew we spent the summer with power outs and still they did not lift a finger to help themselves or be prepared.
The really bad news for you people, if this was more serious then a small power out, your probably going to be the first to perish, those of us who had to put up with your BS, we won't miss you.
And no, I am not giving out anymore hints on how to be prepared, 1, you don't listen, 2, you can't comprehend anyway.

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Obama has no strategy for fighting Terrorists,
It was nice knowing you!
Wake up! The Wolves are at the Door!
August 22, 2014, 9:05 amHyperbole Friday or things to think about.
Just read an article yesterday, the Bubonic plague is alive and well in 2 places, China and Colorado.
Google Bubonic plague and you'll see the little sign posted on a pole warning people to keep their pets away from small animals.
Apparently, some expert found fleas on some Prairie Dogs with the disease, Didn't see that on the news.
Bubonic Plague if not treated kills you in 4 days, I just hope someone is out killing Prairie Dogs and spraying the area.
On to Ebola, Our TSA agents , when they are not laughing at our xrays or stealing from our luggage are the people in charge of screening for sick people, "Oh My" . I wouldn't trust some of these people to properly apply a Band Aid.
I just wonder why we are not stopping flights from these infected countries from coming into our country?
On to the Border children, Our Government dummies, are plopping these people on buses and sending them all over the country. Many of them have Tuberculosis , pneumonia, polio, Chickenpox, smallpox, scabbies, lice and a variety of health issues. Why would anyone in their right mind send sick people all over our country?
To all you parents who feel immunizations are not necessary hurry up and give the kids extra vitamin C tablets, cause we all know that will fix the problem, wink wink!
August 6, 2014, 9:42 amFight those germs
The man in Egypt died from the Ebola virus, There is a woman in Ohio and a couple of people in New York being tested.
They say this is a very hard disease to catch. How do we catch anything? The flu a cold etc.
Because the germs get on our hands, that's how.
WASH YOUR HANDS.
Every time you touch a doorknob, shopping cart, your own cell phone, you transfer germs.
Public bathrooms are teaming with all kinds of nasty germs.
You can take precautions .
First build up your immune system.
Lots of vitamin C and water, stay hydrated.
Fruits and veggies, especially green leafy and anything orange, will boost your immune system.
Avoid, sugar and fats.
Stay active, exercise is great, even if it's just a walk.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth until you have washed your hands.
Know where your food is coming from, Keep in mind every time you eat out someone else is touching your food.
Your shoes, take them off at the door and when you put them off or on, wash your hands.
Public restrooms, after you wash your hands, use the paper towel to shut the water off and to open the door.
Working in a grocery store, I see people touching all kinds of things, they turn around open up chips or cookies in the car and start munching, they didn't bother to wash their hands.
We all love money, but it is filthy, wash your hands after handling money.
Some germs can live on surfaces for days, it only takes a few minutes to combat these surfaces, use disinfectant spray or wipes, doors, your car door handle, cell phone, home phone, toilet handle, counters.
Stop the spread of germs, cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm if you don't have tissue.
Remember, WASH YOUR HANDS.

The amount of Presidential executive orders does not mean a thing, it's the content and nature as to what they are being used for.
When it's used to by -pass Congress or the Constitution, or the create laws, circumvent laws, then this is an abuse of power.
July 11, 2014, 12:47 amDear Rachel
Decided to tune into your show to see what you were spewing, I guess you want to get an early start on demonizing Rick Perry, a Presidential hopeful. Yep, you put a big spin on the border crisis.
Texas Governor Rick Perry has asked the President to send National guard for a strong military presence on our border. Thousands of Children from South America are flooding the border, turning themselves in to our border agents. So, according to you, that's not what we need, because the children are turning themselves in.
Why did you omit the fact that because the border agents are busy with kids much of the border is now unwatched?
Why are you omitting the fact that adults and many carrying drugs are now coming in through unprotected areas?
Did you bother to explain many are coming from middle east countries as well as Mexico and South America?
How about the crime stats from illegal aliens?
It's a dirty rotten shame you have decided to smear Rick Perry instead of offering useful information, I guess you really have no use for your fancy college degree, since all you want to do is twist the truth.
Maybe you should visit the border before you open your mouth.
July 10, 2014, 11:14 amDear "War on Women"?
Dear Left Wing Loons
So sorry to hear War has been declared on you, How many of you have died during this battle?
Have you been shot? Someone throwing grenades at you? Any road side bombs? POW'S ?
Your lies and half truths are appalling to say the least, How do you live with yourself? I guess it's easy when you have the Liberal media covering your back.
Let's start with Hobby Lobby, A family owned incorporated business. Your first lie states, Corporations can't be people, WHAT! I guess you must think everyone your pandering to doesn't have any business sense. BUSTED!
There are many types of Corporations and types of businesses. You can be Private or Public and all can incorporate, even a business with one employee can incorporate. With that being said, A Family owned business is a person.
Now on to your second lie, Hobby Lobby is refusing to provide Birth Control and doesn't care about women's health issues, not true, they are in fact providing 16 forms of birth control, what they are not providing is 4 types of abortion pills. They don't believe in killing babies, plain and simple, if you use one of the 16 forms of birth control they offer, there is no reason for anyone to kill their baby.
The hard cold fact is you refuse to respect anyone's religious beliefs. Many of us feel that when the sperm meets the egg, a soul is created, don't care about fingers and toes, this is a soul, This is a creation of God. Many people do not want to be complicit to murder. Nobody is forcing their religion on you, they quite simply want no part of murder. Not only do you have no respect for others, you have no respect for life, makes me wonder if you even respect yourself.
I also have to bring into question some of your half baked logic...When conservatives or Christians say they oppose killing babies, you scream at the top of your lungs that it's your body and you don't want big business or Government in your bedroom. Why are you crying about the Supreme Courts decision to keep big business out of your bedroom? And why do we have members of Congress ( Government officials ) using your bedroom for political gain?
Shouldn't some of these women stay out of your business? Are you really falling for the fear they are spreading?
As a woman, I believe it's my body and no one has any say so over what I do with it, as a woman I believe in equal pay for equal work. Do I believe there is some sort of war on women ?, Hell no!
I believe in personal responsibility, you are responsible for your actions, If you don't want a baby, practice safe sex , that's on you, not your boss, not the government.
Don't fall for the BS
June 26, 2014, 8:34 pmTake care of your Teeth
Went for my dental check up, all is well. I did however get some disturbing news from my Dentist, In 2 years under Obamacare he will no longer be allowed to write prescriptions for antibiotics or pain killers.
He told me, if I were to get an infected tooth, I would have to go to my primary care provider for the medicine.
This can be a disaster, What if your Dr, cannot see you right away? What if they are not sure of the exact medicine and dosage you need?
This is scary for many reasons, you can die from an infected tooth, it can spread to your heart and cause a lot of damage.
What if your medical coverage doesn't cover your teeth, we have separate insurance for these 2 things.
He also stated, many will just opt to have teeth pulled out, even ones that can be saved, thus causing bone loss in your jaw.
My advice, whether you have dental insurance or not, get a check up, some places run specials.
Brush and floss without fail and don't wait for a cavity to become so bad it's infected.
Sadly, it seems many have taken their health for granted, GUILTY! I smoked for 30 years and my mouth is proof,
even though I brushed flossed and rinsed, the nicotine damaged my gums, causing cavities at the gum line.
I went through months of agony until they healed, and they did, but this was 100 percent preventable.
The pain from hot, cold, the constant visits and out of pocket expenses, took it's toll.
Now more then ever, staying healthy is important and the first place you start is your mouth.
June 26, 2014, 12:40 pmDear Hillary
I was very disturbed to hear you are broke. I thought maybe I could offer some tips to helps a working woman survive the every day hassles of life.
First you have to have a family meeting, everyone must be on board for the family to make ends meet.
Let's start with those credit cards, cut them up and if you can't pay with cash, you shouldn't buy anything.
Dining out, that will eat your budget ( no pun intended) it has to stop.
Make a weekly menu and clip those coupons, remember to go through the sales ads and decide which store best suits your needs for the week, and if your like us, there may be a few meatless meals, so check out some recipe books and a nice stroll to the local library helps in 2 ways, you get exercise and save gas.
We have a shower limit, got to keep the water bill down, 2 minutes, get in scrub and get out!
Laundry can tear into a budget, cold water only, and maybe Bill will string you some lines outside to dry clothes, the exercise is great and it makes your clothes smell nice.
Keep those drapes open, sunlight is free and why waste electricity burning bulbs.
There is a few things that will have to go, just until you get back on your feet, no movies, no cd's, no eating out at all, no vacations, no salon appointments, trade in those gas guzzlers for fuel efficient cars.
Keep your thermostat at 68 in winter, 74 in summer, which reminds me, keep a needle and thread handy, sweatshirts and sweaters always need repairs.
We have a no waste rule, so we eat leftovers for lunch and our water comes out of the tap, not a plastic bottle.
I was thinking maybe you could get a part time job working with me. My husbands check gets eaten alive by taxes and higher health care costs now, so I don't have a choice, I have to work, I feel your pain, because at one time , we were solidly middle class, a shrinking pay check and inflated goods and services , we barely break even any more.
Maybe when the furnace breaks down or the roof springs a leak or the car needs a brake job, you can come over and cry yourself to sleep because the stress of making ends meet came be overwhelming at times, or maybe the heartbreak of constantly telling your kid ( No we can't afford that anymore) will get to you!
I understand how you must be struggling , now that we are up in age the hard work is taking it's toll on our bodies.
Hope I offered some sound advice, got to go, looks like rain and I have to bring the laundry in.
ps. I probably won't vote for you if you run for President, because I will vote for whoever gives us back some of the money WE EARN....WE EARN! And obamacare sucks and it needs to go away.
January 22, 2014, 10:38 amGot another letter!
This time it's from our health insurance provider, Insurance we almost lost due to the new unaffordable health care act, because my husbands employer got more people to sign up, and all were willing to pay a little more, we can keep it at least for another year, next year will be debatable.
That being said, let me give you some back ground info on me, I'm a former smoker, I smoked for almost 30 years, I escaped the long term damage, I do however need albuteral from time to time, as I work in a cooler, it's 33 degrees in there. My saving grace was probably good nutrition and exercise.
I still may develope problems, nobodies fault but my own!
My husband is a skin cancer survivor, it can reoccur at any time, both of his arms from wrist to shoulder were affected, he worked all during his treatment, didn't miss a single day.
He's worked for the same employer for 34 years, paid into this insurance company, BCBS the entire time, other then giving birth and his skin cancer, well baby visits, etc, there were many years, we never used the insurance we had, didn't need to we were healthy.
Now, I am 52 years old, like I said, I work in the cooler, what do I do?
I unload the truck, I may get 3 or 4 pallets of product, we are talking almost 7000 poumds of , meat, milk, cheese, vegetables, any fresh food.
My job is to unpack these pallets and put the product into backstock, I can usually do my truck in about an hour and a half, thats a lot of weight I have to move, my job isn't finished there, if someone needs something sliced, I have to stop what I am doing and go slice, then clean the slicer.
I then have to weigh the meat and cheese and fill holes, stock milk, sour cream , salads, veggies etc.
So, thats what I do.
Now back in the fall a week before Thanksgiving, things got crazy at work, plus I was doing a lot of leaf raking and yard work, getting my house and yard ready for the winter and for the holidays.
Well, it took it's toll on my back especially my left shoulder, I was in pain, I woke up one morning ready to pull my hair out, motrin wasn't working.
So, I went to the chiropractor( not sure if thats spelled right) had my back and neck adjusted, paid for it out of my own pocket, no problem.
The pain got worse, I actually went to work like that, the next day, I called my doctor , I was afraid I ripped or did something really bad, at this point, I can't pinpoint any situation that actually caused the pain, it wasn't an accident, I just woke up in pain.
So the doctor tells me, it's a muscle spasm, no serious problem, told me to take a couple days off work, not more raking, he gave me a script for muscle relaxers and told me to alternate between hot and cold on that shoulder. After a couple days, I was good as new. Haven't had a proble since.
well, we just got a letter from BCBS, THEY ARE INVESTIGATING MY INJURY!
REALLY! REALLY! A F*CKING MUSCLE SPASM
It has been brought to their attention, that I was recxently treated for an injury,( an accident injury), I never said it was an accident, I don't know what caused it. overuse would be my guess.
They want to know, was it an auto accident, motorcycle, injury at work, injury at home? a fall, at home or elsewhere, did someone do this to me?
Did I file a lawsuit?
Am I getting ready for disabilty? wth
My first thought was maybe the doctor overbilled, nope went back an looked at the claim, only charged me for the office visit and I paid my co-pay.
Second thought, Are they trying to pass the buck off onto, my employer, car insurance, someone elses car insurance, my home owners.
Third thought, are we going to go through this everytime we go to the doctors? Are they going to decide we are high risk and charge us more?
Fouth thought, I wonder how much overhead all this investigating will cost, cause it will be passed on to us!
This is the same company, who won't let me have my albuteral when I need it, I paid my last script out of pocket, beacuse I was 3 days early and the insurance wouldn't cover me until the day they say I can have it.
Fifth and final thought, when does their BS rationing cost someone thier life?
