I have a new physical problem.

It’s actually been building up for years. My right shoulder has gotten more and more painful over the past year or so. It’s ached with use or extension for years but in the past year, I’ve been almost unable to use my right arm. It hurts just typing this!

So, I went to an orthopedist. Since I cannot have an MRI due to my cardiac implant, having a torn rotator cuff is difficult to get a definitive diagnosis on. He wants to stick needles in there and see what happens.

Now, I ask you, is this any way to run a popsicle stand?!? You’re suggesting that I let you jam a steel spike into an already painful portion of my body just to see what you find?? And you can’t understand why I have a problem with that??

What are you, nuts?

I’m of the opinion that most doctors have forgotten what it’s like to be at the mercy of people who have none. Most people don’t like needles. Me, I’m terrified of them.

Now, imagine this. You’ve got a health problem. You go to the doctor for it. He suggests a therapy. That therapy happens to be the thing you are most afraid of in this life. Say you’re afraid of heights. So afraid you can’t ride in an elevator because you know you’re standing over a 10-storey hole while doing so. So, said doctor says the first recommended therapy for your problem is to go sky-diving. Or jump off a very tall building, complete with parachute. And won’t consider or discuss any other therapies. What do you do?

Find another doctor!! There has to be another way to treat this condition that does not involve needle torture!!

And, yes, I went to Physical Therapy. That made it hurt worse. Much worse. Totally incapacitated me with pain. So, I don’t think that’s the answer either.

I’ve got a referral to another doctor. Guess I’ll see what he has to say…


I went to a different orthopod. He diagnosed my should as "frozen". No tears, nothing broken. I'm not sure how using my right arm more made my shoulder freeze up but he seems to be correct. I've gone to a different physical therapist, someone who is interested in actually doing their jobs and helping people, and they've pointed out that if I had really torn my rotator cuff, I wouldn't be able to hold my arm up at all, which I still can do. So, now I got and "get bent" twice a week and it's really helping. Those prissy girls at the other PT place were all wrong!

Obama's Logo

James Madison reported Benjamin Franklin saying, "I have often looked at that behind the president without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting. But now I... know that it is a rising...sun."

I’ve been thinking about Obama’s logo, the one you see everywhere:

That looks more like a setting sun to me.

The fools elect this clown, I fear for my country.

The sun is going to set on America.

MSM takedown

Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite authors. Today, he has out-shown his previous writings.

FYI, he's a Democrat, too.

Check it out!!

I wish i could write like that!!

The Case Against Obambi

If you haven't seen this yet, go. Read. Watch the videos.

Send the link to everyone you know who is even remotely considering voting for Obambi.

Guy Benson, Mary Katharine Ham the Great, and Captain Ed do a fabulous job of putting the whole case together. Anyone who, after reading this, still votes for the guy is truly an idiot.

Oh, and the newest piece of Liberal idiocy (but I repeat myself!) is that Socialist = Black. All those codewords, don't ya know.

Somehow, I think Hitler would be surprised to find himself considered Black. As would Stalin, Lenin and Mao!!

Barack and Marx

No real post as yet today. I've been working!!

But I did find somethig to swipe from, one of my favorite websites:

I'm not sure where they got it.

Joe Biden

Just which candidate is this guy supporting anyway?

I knew Biden would be a lot of fun but I didn’t expect him to make our point for us in such a bald-faced way!!

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

And not only is he going to cause a world-wide crisis, he’s going to mishandle it as well!

"Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?’ We’re gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years."

But keep following blindly!!

“And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you - not financially to help him - we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.” *

Are we sure this guy isn’t on the McCain payroll??

What do various bloggers call him? Oh, yeah…


Absolutely priceless!!

No wonder Obambi has the endorsement of every tin-pot (and otherwise!) dictator on the planet. They think he’s going to be a push-over. They know he won’t have the balls to give them a muscular response. They see how he responded to the Russian invasion of Georgia and know he won’t make the correct response. He’s going to want to talk it over, first. That will give them plenty of time for making mischief and consolidate any gains. I wonder if Russia will even wait for him to be inaugurated before they invade their next target??

He’s so inexperienced that even his running mate thinks he is going to screw up his response to the test!

And don’t forget the Islamic terrorists. They are still out there. It’s been calm for a while because they knew that if they misbehaved, Uncle Sam would spank. Obambi will make sure those spankings are never administered. He’ll want to lecture and put them in “time-out” instead. That doesn’t work with violent children and it won’t work with violent terrorists.

Of course, most Dhimmicrats don’t believe that we’re in any danger from Islamic Radicals. Their willingness to blow themselves up if they can take a few of us with them is all our fault. It’s not their repressive, violent religion or anything, right? It’s our fault their governments keep them in poverty in spite of the billions and billions of Petro Dollars they get from the West. What we need it more foreign aide!!

One person who has gone into hiding is Joe Biden. He’s no where to be found. Gee, ya think somebody noticed what an idiot he is?? :-)

Poor Joe!!

He has dared to question the Messiah and for his temerity in doing so, he is being vilified and his entire private life is being dragged thought mud by the Dinosaur Media.

How dare he think he could get away with such a thing?? Doesn’t he know that you don’t question The One?

All sarcasm aside, what it wrong with the press in this country? This guy isn’t running for office. He’s a private citizen who asked a question of a politician. And got an honest answer. One that Obambi’s acolytes in the Media don’t like. So, instead of actually addressing the issues raised by their own candidate, they go after the regular guy who asked the question.

This is what our presidential politics has descended to in this country? Smearing average citizens when a candidate makes a gaff??

“He made me say that!” “That’s not what I meant!”

Not that Obambi has tried to ameliorate the statement. It still stands there, a blatant statement of socialism and Marxism, with no explanations or excuses.

Apparently, he means to do what he said.

Any one who hopes to do well and votes for this guy is the worst sort of fool.

Got this from a friend. Had to post it!!

Obama’s Tax Plans

Imagine you are a realtor. I was one at one point in my life.

In Ohio, realtors earn 3% on each sale. It they’re smart and not splitting it with some realty company, that means that they have to make only 2.7 sales of $250,000 houses (not hard to do in the Cleveland area) to make in excess of $250,000.

Think a hard working realtor could average just under 3 sales a month? You betcha!!

So, the next time you hear Obambi going on about how only “rich” people will have a tax increase, think of your aunt the realtor. Or that friend of your mothers.

They are who he is talking about!!!

Realtors work 24/7, which is why I am not one any more. My kids were little and I was a single parent. I needed to be there with them, not sitting in some open house on the other side of town. And you do work very hard for that money!!

So, now Obambi wants to take all that hard earned money away from the people who earned it and give it to people who didn’t. How is that fair?

The whole of the American Dream is that you can, if you are willing to work at it, make something of yourself. There’s nothing stopping you.

I hope all those deluded idiots who plan on voting for the guy are aware that they are voting away their best chance to be successful. The moment that they are successful, Obambi is going to come along and take it away from them.

Obambi’s message: Don’t be too successful. I’ll take it away from you!

That’s seems to be the Democrat’s message in general.

They whine about “fairness”. As defined by whom???

How is it fair to take something earned by one person and give it to someone who didn’t earn it?

If I did that, I’d go to jail! That’s robbery!!

And not any more right when a government does it than when an individual does it!!


If you listen to Rush on line, you already know this:

Jennifer Brunner is hiding 200,000 unverified voter registrations from the county election people who are supposed to track down these people and verify that their information is accurate. The county election people are supposed to take all unverifiable registrations and investigate them and make sure that the people registered are legally allowed to vote in Ohio.

And she’s sitting on 200,000 of them.

George Bush beat John Kerry by 118,457 votes in Ohio.

Hello, voter fraud!!

On a massive scale!

Wake up people!!

You are ALL being disenfranchised!!

Every vote cast fraudulently diminishes your vote by that much. Your vote is a percentage of the large whole. The larger the larger whole is, the smaller percentage that one vote is. Now, if those votes are legitimate, that’s just the way it goes. But if your vote is being diluted by fraudulently case votes, you’re really out something!! You lose even more of what little effect your one vote has.

We need to fight this!! Make our Secretary of State do her job!!!

Call her office. Send an email. Make a pest of yourself!!

Our vote is the only thing we’ve got!

Do your job!

How dishonest does one have to be to refuse to do the job to which one was elected because not to do so might benefit a political candidate one supports?

Apparently, as dishonest as Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner. Until the courts got involved and ordered her to do her job, Ms Brunner had refused to follow Ohio law and cross check new voter registrations against other state databases thus establishing their validity.

Two people have filed a RICO lawsuit to use the force of the courts to disband ACORN. She’s so ‘in the tank’ for Obama that she’s willing to break the law and help them cheat to help him to win.

Didn’t she learn as a child that a win acquired by cheating is wrong? You have to win fair and square before you can be considered to have accomplished something.

Sure, Obama may be president but half the country will see through the chicanery and won’t respect him. Being president isn’t an easy job. Why make it harder on him by tainting his win?

Weren’t you paying attention the past 8 years when Democrats made W’s life hell for their cheating that they projected onto him? There are bloggers out there who are pledging to make the same nasty accusations if Obama wins by cheating. ACORN is cheating. Ms Brunner is cheating.

I didn’t vote absentee because I figured it would just get ‘lost’ since I don’t intend to vote Democrat. If I wait until November, maybe I’ll get included in the general chaos. It will be harder to pick out the Republican ballots and pitch them. Especially since I’m in Cuyahoga County. All votes from here will be assumed to be Democrat.

I voted Democrat in the primaries as part of Operation Chaos. I couldn’t bring myself to vote for Hillary, however. I am now really regretting that vote for Obama. All I really wanted was a chance to vote against Dennis. You know, Cleveland’s Biggest Embarrassment.

Incidentally, Congress’s current approval rating is somewhere in the neighborhood of 9% these days. W is still in the 30s

In any case, I vote against this appalling silly person every chance I get. I’d like to ask the people who vote for him:

How many cities does a guy have to bankrupt before you won’t vote for him?

I should think the answer would be one!!

Socialized Medicine

One of the more interesting things about living with a CPA is that he can effortlessly defuse economic demagoguery by the Left.

Obama is currently running an ad slamming John McCain for wanting to tax our health insurance as ordinary income and giving us ‘only’ a $5,000 tax credit to off set the increase in taxes. Obama is also claiming that the $5K would go straight to the insurance company.

My CPA explains it thusly:

Say your health insurance costs $800 a month. That’s $9,600 a year. I’m probably in the 25% tax bracket. That means my tax liability goes up $9,600 * .25 = $2,400 per year.

Then I get a $5,000 line-item tax credit ON MY 1040 TAX FORM. Me. Not some insurance company.

So. Let’s see: $5,000 - $2,400 = $2,600.

Yeah, my benefits get taxed but I clear a $2,600 credit applied to all my other tax liabilities, which are refundable. Get it? REFUNDABLE!!!

I get it back!!

I get taxed more heavily but get back way more money.

How’s that a bad thing???


And if you damned fools elect this lying charlatan, he wants to nationalize health care. You’re already on the internet. Look up waiting times for simple procedures in Canada and England. What’s the wait for an MRI in Canada? 72 days. Even if you have brain cancer!! Average wait time for surgery? 18.3 weeks. Weeks!!

Britain? 13 weeks.

Yeah, socialized medicine is such a success.

It’s great, unless you happen to get sick!

Then, you’re on your own for weeks at a time. Plenty of time to contemplate your fate as you slowly die of heart disease or cancer and to get your affairs in order.

It’s just one more gift from your government.

An American Carol

We went to see this movie last night.

I highly recommend it. It was hilarious! I haven’t laughed out loud at a movie like that in a long, long time!

It was really good to see the other side get skewered, for a change. They laugh and mock us constantly, misrepresenting our views and positions, all to supposed great hilarity. Not!
My favorite part was the ACLU lawyer zombies! LOL!!! And a crazed Dennis Hopper, looking crazy in that special way only he can, blowing them away in the courtroom!!! Almost too much.

I do have to question the judgment of the theater management, though. We were clearly a conservative audience there specifically to see a conservative movie. What do they choose to show us previews of??

A Jimmy Carter Documentary and Oliver Stone’s “W”!!!!!

The crowd booed and hissed!

I just can’t imagine that they are that brain-dead to think that those two movies would get a positive response from that audience!

Those weren’t the only previews, of course. We were late getting there so these two were the only ones I saw.


Very funny movie! Zucker does it again!!!


I used to think that the stupidest people in the world were Christians. Who could be that gullible to believe that crap? How dumb do you have to be to send money to those guys??

However, with my increasing access to the internet, I’ve discovered that the truly stupidest people in the world are liberals. Who but a liberal could believe that taxing the producers would bring down the price of gas but increasing the supply would not?

And, let’s get this straight: we don’t have a “Gas Crisis”. We have plenty of gasoline. When was the last time you went to a gas station and were turned away? What we have is a problem with the price of gas. There’s plenty available, we just don’t like what they’re charging for it. That’s not a “crisis”. And if the damned liberals would get out of the way and let us drill, we could all pay less at the pump.

Saudi Arabia is bring a new oil field on line that is expected to be producing oil in less than a year! China is drilling off the coast of Florida. Why aren’t we???
