So now the crazies want to tie Ted Kennedy’s death to the ObamaCare plan. Haven’t you all been paying attention ? There are 2 points to be taken from Kennedy’s death on this plan :

  1. Congress has been written OUT of the plan. They are NOT ALLOWED to select that plan, the plan they are trying to sell to you. Even IF they wanted it (and they really, really DON’T), they CAN’T have it. It’s their law.

  2. If you think Kennedy was one of you, for you, cared for you, was equal to you ? Would you be able to shutdown Mass for a 60 mile motorcade, and get yourself all laid out in the JFK presidential Library when you die for 2 days ??? They don’t own that library. Don’t ever try to compare yourself to these people, no matter what they tell you.

You know what you should do ? You can use Kennedy’s death as the baseline to COMPARE what is in store for you, against the treatment he received. Before they scrub the news, go back two years and collect the articles. See what procedures he had, how often, how quickly they were done. See how many specialists he had working on his case. Ask if it was all necessary and meant to make him well. Ask if you can expect the exact same treatment, timing, expediency should similar or other ailments affect you or a loved one under ObamaCare. Yes, we can make use of his death, to ask real questions, with real life reference points, we can all now relate to with dear Teddy passing at this most important time in America. We the People have QUESTIONS

We enjoy looking at clouds, and I came across this image of what’s known as ‘morning glory’ clouds.

Here are the pics from our weekend in Vermont at the First Vermont Blues Festival – Aug 2009 at Mt. Snow. Great show, super performances.

So, those CIA techniques were rough on those poor detainees huh? Perhaps we should have just thrown them out of 110 story burning buildings. Or better yet, throw their kids from the top of the burning WTC towers and let them watch. Fuck them all. Who fucking cares how we got them to talk, they talked is all that matters. We the People say, throw them in the pit at Ground Zero and let the families at them. That’s compassion for the families, and justice for the rest of us.

It’s that time again at the Bank. Time to swap out all the PC’s. Here we have our DSS team handling our workstations. Thanks guys.

I went to the 24th floor to take some pics of Bryant Park, and took these two great shots of the Bryant Park Hotel and the new Verizon and BofA buildings.

John McEnroe was at Bryant Park today playing tennis if you can believe it. They setup tennis courts on our lawn. Check out these pics – BP1 , BP2 , BP3 , BP4

We all go to doctors. Some more often than others. But, we all go. Do yourself a favor. Each time you go to one, or know of someone who goes to one, begin to ask the doctor questions. New questions. Ask him what would happen with your visit, if this was under the new ObamaCare program. His answer will lead to you asking more questions. Just ask every doctor, and collect responses, then sit and think about it. Think about it. We the People need to start asking questions. And We the People need to hear the answers.

If you’re looking for a real comfy chair for your yard, or other place with limited space, consider buying the AirChair. We saw these in Vermont at the Blues Festival, and they were very comfortable. Reasonably priced as well.

I had a lot of fun powerwashing my house and helping my dad with is. I cam across this gadget that connects to the hose and may do a good job of helping to maintain that clean look for a nominal cost. Checkout the Water Jet power washer – Order yours today, I did, and I’m not even a spokesman !!! (written by a non-compensated stranger, with nothing to gain by doing so)

I see that Ted Kennedy finally died. Good fucking riddance. Perhaps now, the family of Mary Jo Kopechne will finally rest knowing this asshole is dead. Remember Chappaquiddick – hopefully also, the Kennedy dynasty ends too.

From DpF, up Buffalo way, an article warning about Obama’s plan to desecrate 9/11. Don’t buy into this sappy National Day of Service crap, it’s for the weak minded amongst us. And you all know who you are, right ? September 11th must remain as a solemn day of remembrance for those that were lost. And a day to Never Forget what fucking animals did to America that day. Animals who deserve no compassion, understanding or tolerance. Why, cause those things are 2 way streets.

I’m sure by now you might have heard about, read about, or even watch Glenn Beck. Well if you haven’t, check out this updated list of Reasonable questions for unreasonable times. No matter you’re opinion, won’t these questions stimulate conversation ? potentially enlighten the many ? Remind you that We the People are what matters, and deserve accountable answers for basic questions.

This is an interesting and scary article about something called The Codex Alimentarius Commission. If there is any truth to this, we are in for some interesting changes in our lives.

I have but one question and one suggestion for the ObamaCare town halls.

bullet

Question – If the public option is so good for Americans why has the bill being proposed been written to explicitly EXCLUDE every member of Congress from participating in it ? Even if they wanted this option, they couldn’t get it.

bullet

Suggestion – All 535 members of Congress should be the ONLY participants in this plan for 2 years. After 2 years, they should report to the American public their opinion of it, and then we will all vote for it via a referendum. This comes under the heading of Lead by Example.

Until these two issues are cleared up, there is really no point in discussing anything else

If you’re heading to the beach over the next week or so, be aware of the rip tides. My honey and JM got caught up in one at Jones Beach and needed help from a lifeguard to get free from it. Was scary for a bit, but a lesson learned.

Thinking about using that new ‘low-level laser’ therapy to help you quit smoking ??? Well, think again, and read this letter sent to the FDA about this device and the way certain companies are marketing it. It’s illegal. It can be harmful to you, and you should not be so weak minded as to think this silly procedure would actually help you. If you don’t want to smoke any more, just fucking stop. Grow the fuck up and just stop. Otherwise, just cut down smoking, count the cigs you haven’t bought, and enjoy the rest of your life.

bullet

Don’t believe me or the letter, how about this post and this one and read this report at the FDA site

bullet

Here is the FDA list of approved products for smoking cessation and there are no hokey low-level lasers listed.

Have you thought about your position on mandatory vaccine for H1N1 ? You might want to. Remind your school-age kids to decline a surprise needle… Read on – Forced vaccines : Ready for yours ? – and for those Obama lovers out there, this sort of behavior is un-American.

Pat Buchanan puts it quite nice in – Populist right rising – you see Barry the commie and Nancy the hag only support ‘disrupting’ when it’s someone else being disrupted. All those dems best start ordering their moving boxes.

Have you been paying attention to that missing Russian cargo ship ? Here’s a report covering reports the ship is being scanned for radioactive material. Why radiation tests for a shipment of lumber ? A possible Al Qaeda connection as well. Stay tuned …
