I know nobody reads my blog, so uncovering "scams" won't mean anything here....BUT..... it makes me fell better.....
   I NOW HAVE A FAMILY DOCTOR....I'm 72 years old and NEVER had one of them before.....
   I have a "pinched nerve "in my lower back, Sooo, my new "family" doctor sent me to a "lab" for THREE tests.... to make sure I have a "pinched nerve" in my lower back...I guess....?
   Now the test results are coming back from the "lab"....Instead of reviewing the THREE tests results and calling me, on the phone to tell me the very good news, that ALL three tests showed "nothing" wrong with the part of me that they looked at..... I was called into his office THREE TIME, to hear the very good news that the tests showed NOTHING and as I told him in the first place , I have a "pinched nerve" in my lower back....(not my first rodeo)....... but, you see his office collected, from Medicare, THREE OFFICE VISITS CHARGES.....and NO ONE says a word, because THE OFFICE VISITS ARE PAYED FOR BY SOMEONE ELSE (medicare).   I don't even know what he charges for a office visit, and WHY would I care...I'M NOT PAYING FOR IT..... THIS sort of thing happens in EVERY doctors office in the country, a dozen times a day, and we all wonder in quite amazement WHY Medicare costs so much...I know, this is just ONE little way the "medical industry" has to rip off the taxpayers of the country, but it still gets my goat.......Just this little scam costs the taxpayers BILLIONS ever year, and there are hundred of little scams going on every day.......YES YOUR DOCTOR DOSE IT TO.
   I do feel better....

    Aug. 2016....I had two stints put in my heart, Not fun ...but... no choice. I'm 71 years old and on Medicare.....At the time I started on SS, at 62, me and my wife's only income was SS, so I DIDN'T sign up for part B, which you have to pay for....Every thing goes well for about 9 years...then the heart thing......The hospital, in Oct. realized, I didn't have part B Medicare, that would normally pay them......SO they billed me....$203,000, IF I had part B...that what Medicare would have payed them, no questions ask.......long story short....we (hospital and me) after very little discussion settled on $2,000, to be payed in 6 me.........DID I SAVE MEDICARE $203,000...?  And just how does a hospital stay of ONE day cost Medicare over 200K dollars, but me (without Medicare) only 2K.....?  Do you understand now.....why insurance is so expensive...IT"S THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY.....OVER CHARGING THE INSURANCE COMPANY'S, AND NO ONE SAYING ANYTHING TO STOP THEY...If YOU had to pay the bills they sent out, YOU'D complain.....and costs would go down......

Stupid people:

For some serious fun, let’s survey some categories of stupid people in America:

  • Bernie Sanders star-struck supporters. These are people who
    support socialism — a destroyer of nations — because they are ignorant
    of how free enterprise creates vibrant economies and jobs. Sanders
    believes the private sector role is to transfer revenue to the public
    coffers. But why would you embrace the judgment of a man who
    accomplished nothing worthwhile in life and who couldn’t keep a good job
    until he reached his 40s? And who extolled the virtues of Ortega’s
    communist regime in Nicaragua, while Ortega killed or tortured 15,000
    people and practiced legalized theft?
  • Minimum wagers. Among the prominent members of the
    Unintended Consequences Club sit the minimum wage backers. The people
    who push for minimum wages are too stupid to understand how it hurts
    more than it helps. It causes minority unemployment, “underground jobs”
    where people are hired off the books and no taxes are paid, people
    permanently priced out of jobs, stores closing. The real minimum wage is
    always zero, regardless of laws.
  • “Black Lives Matter”. Radical blacks are driving cops away
    from protecting innocent blacks and businesses in America’s largest
    cities. The people being killed in inner city areas are young men of
    color — and it’s not the police doing the killing. Black Lives Matter is
    fanning the flames, hastening the plunge. Only crooks, racists and
    political opportunists say BLM is credible.
  • Tax-the-rich socialists. These people are killing the great
    job-creating mechanisms that fueled America’s greatness and quality of
    life, a beacon in the world. If government is going to penalize the risk
    takers and investors by taxing away the fruits of successful
    capitalism, too few will expose their own capital to the risk of
    building innovative companies that employ large numbers of people.
  • “It Takes A Village” Multi-culturalists. These people have
    barged their way into the ranks of the stupid in recent years by
    insisting that cultural diversity has no dark side and by denying the
    truths of human nature and its tribal ways. Powerful tribal coteries can
    rip a country apart, trampling on minority groups’ rights and sometimes
    slaughtering religious or political opponents. Stupid multiculturalists
    are prattling on that there is no danger allowing 10,000 Syrian
    refugees into this country, relying on Obama’s ineffective vetting
    system. Every single day, Islamists attack somewhere.
  • Spoiled brat college students. Too many college students
    enter stupidhood by taking college majors that offer little chance of
    good jobs that produce livable wages. Their participation-trophy
    childhoods push them toward wanting to be shielded from competition and
    “micro-aggressions”. These na├»ve, pampered college students think it’s
    more fun to play the victim and stage protests, than the hard work of
    solving problems. Well, you’re not a victim, you’re a psychological
    problem who wants to be handed a free education. Get over it.

QUIT BASHING OBAMA by COL. ROBERT F. CUNNINGHAM and PATRICK RISHOR, The Gilmer Mirror Quit trashing Obama's accomplishments. He has done more than any other President before him. Here is a list of his impressive accomplishments: *First President to be photographed smoking a joint. *First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner. *First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in. *First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States. *First President to violate the War Powers Act. *First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. *First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party. *First President to spend a trillion dollars on "shovel-ready" jobs when there was no such thing as "shovel-ready" jobs. *First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters. *First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat. *First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions. *First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees. *First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (Chrysler) to resign. *First President to terminate America ’s ability to put a man in space. *First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation. *First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present. *First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it. *First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke out on the reasons for their rate increases. *First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory. *First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN). *First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago. *First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal). *First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case. *First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office. *First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists. *First President to golf more than 150 separate times in his five years in office. *First President to hide his birth, medical, educational and travel records. *First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it. *First President to go on multiple "global apology tours" and concurrent "insult our friends" tours. *First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers. *First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife. *First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense. *First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense. *First President to repeat the Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth. *First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona). *First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they "volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences." *Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion. It's hard to comprehend all this guy has gotten away with. Any other president would have been impeached! What in God's name is wrong with our government that they allow this guy carte blanch. It absolutely boggles the mind!

Damned Confederate Flag

Confederate Flag

Thank God that damned Confederate Flag is
finally being removed from the South Carolina capitol.  It's comforting to know
that racism will finally be ended by pulling down this flag, and blacks will now
be free to live the American dream; free to keep their families together, free
to value education, free to support their own children, free to stop murdering
each other, free to graduate from high school, free to get married before having
babies, free to stop crime in their neighborhoods.  We will all rest easier
knowing that those problems will cease to exist.

Dumb and Dumber:

Dumb and Dumber You may recall that a few months ago, President Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, "much like this swap" he said convincingly. CNN carried this quote, "This is what happens at the end of wars." President Barack Obama boasted when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. "That was true for George Washington...That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back...And that’s the right thing to do". Really? That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World and two term President of the United States lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents and it demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over. Then again, he was educated at an Ivy League school so you can't expect too much. What's wrong with his statements? Let's keep it simple--EVERYTHING is wrong! 1. George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange. 2. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed. 3. FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII. Like Lincoln, he stayed dead after the war so he couldn't do what this jerk says he did. You'll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, ending World War II. He made no deals for prisoners. We went in and released them when necessary. 4. None of the presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by our "57 States" president. 5. It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars. What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless? ......... or willing, as the media are, to cover for his dumb, lying rhetoric and behavior! P.S. Obama mentioned while being interviewed on Super Bowl Sunday while in the White House kitchen, that George Washington drank beer in the White House when he was president . George Washington never lived in the White House; it wasn't built yet.

Avatar disqus_O3XOwssqyZ • an hour ago Even supposedly smart blacks get the history and facts wrong. No wonder they come off as stupid all the time and can't make progress. Northern Republican Whites put an end to slavery in the US. Blacks are resurrecting it along with their liberal Democrat pals. Not all slavery is prostitution, but most prostitution is slavery. If you have a pimp, you are a slave, if you are a young man being "kept" by an older man, you are a slave, if your dealer trades sex for drugs, you are a slave, if you are a runaway and someone is "helping" you, you are a slave. 1.All races kept slaves all throughout history. 2.Most of the American slave ships and American slave-markets were run by Jews. But no one blames modern Jews. Because if anyone today says anything was “run by Jews”, they’re immediately dismissed as a crazy anti-Semite, regardless of whether or not it’s true. 3.When the Trans-Atlantic slaveships docked at African slave-markets to buy slaves, they bought slaves who were already slaves. It was Arab Muslims and Black Africans themselves who captured members of rival tribes and took them to the coastal slave-markets to sell to the Whites and Jews. White people didn’t go into Africa and kidnap free black people. They barely needed to get off their ships to buy slaves, it was like buying McDonalds at a drive-through. The slaves were already at the slave-market in chains, ready to go. 4.In the 16th – 18th century, Africans enslaved 1.5 million White Europeans in the Barbary Slave Trade. African Muslims raided up the coastlines of Europe, particularly the British Isles but even as far as Iceland, kidnapping and enslaving White European Christians. The men were galley slaves, and the women were sex slaves. This was more brutal than working on a plantation or as a domestic servant. 5.Native Americans and Jews owned Black slaves too, but no one seems to assign a collective guilt to modern Native Americans and Jews for their slavery. In fact, Jews were the biggest slave-owners in America per capita. 6.Whites were the first people to stop slavery in modern times, whereas slavery still continues in Africa to this day. In Mauritania slavery was only made a punishable offense in 2007! 7.Less than 2% of Whites in America ever owned slaves 8.Only 5% of the black slaves transported across the Atlantic actually went to the modern U.S. Most in fact went to Latin America to serve Hispanic slave-owners. But we don’t look at modern Hispanics as evil slave-owners. https://violenceagainstwhites...

“For the rare citizen who escapes indoctrination of the new social order in progressive schools for the Bible believing Christian who rejects that socialism is the new “kingdom of god on earth,” who hold to age old concepts of right and wrong and are vocal about it, the “progressives” have one final ultimate weapon. Declare them insane! Just as in the fields of education, religion, press, radio and TV the progressives have succeeded in infiltrating and “twisting” the psychological professions to their own ends”. Excerpts taken from, (None Dare call it Treason) by: John A. Stormer:

friends, the conservative position is the one espoused by all the heroes we reverently refer to as Founding Fathers. Get the government out, period. If government had never started paying anyone’s medical bills, going to the doctor would still be affordable for middle class families. There is a reason plastic surgery for vanity is just about the only form of “medicine” the middle class can afford: government and most insurance plans have always refused to pay for it. Paying for a C-section out-of-pocket would crush my family personally, but we could save up for a nose-job if we wanted to.

The government will use all gun sale background check requests as a de facto form of gun registration. Do not kid yourself. And then they will eventually use that list when it comes time to go door-to-door in confiscation efforts. The line must be drawn here. Resist now.


Ignore the Feinstein bill. It will never pass and it is not meant to pass. It is what one Capitol Hill operator described to me as "the shiny object" a magician uses to distract the audience. Ignore the cloud of glitter and follow the hand that reaches under the table. The left will cave on its ambitious goal of ridding the country of military-style long guns in exchange for what it really wants: A national registry of guns and gun owners with a big, giant switch that the government it controls can throw at any time to slow down gun transfers--or shut it down.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million. You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson. With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'. During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!! It's time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us. You're not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people~ Think about all this the next time a liberal say he don't want you to own a gun.......

THINK ABOUT THIS: How many "homeless or unsuccessful business people" should ANY "rich person, like Warren Buffet" bring to his "board room" make them "executives" and split his income, equally with, to satisfactory, "redistribute" his wealth? Maybe (because of his great wealth) a 1,000 or even maybe 10,000? If YOU work for one of his companies, (and a very lot of people do) be careful what you wish for, How long do you think his companies would last? And how long would you be working?.......YOU HAVE NEVER WORKED FOR A "POOR MAN"...... AGAIN THINK ABOUT IT......

it is no longer just about the children. Yesterday, the Obama administration went a step further. After the Supreme Court upheld Arizona’s right to contact federal agents concerning the legal status of those apprehended for other lawless activity, Obama summarily terminated the 287(g) program. The 287(g) program is a vital state-federal partnership created in 1996 in an effort to assist local law enforcement to deal with illegals apprehended in their jurisdictions. It has enjoyed bipartisan support and has served as the basis for any “comprehensive immigration” agreement dealing with border enforcement. Yet, with the flick of the wrist, Obama decided to terminate this act of Congress in order to punish Arizona and ensure that their immigration-related phone calls are ignored.
A few months ago, when the devastating economic crisis in Greece exploded, economic determinism lost credibility and our Democratic Party replaced it with “progressivism,” which is the current cover name for American Marxism. The real Progressive Movement was born after the U.S. financial crisis of 1893, which the country tried to solve by redistributing America’s wealth. The progressives pushed through the first federal income tax and they created a string of labor standards that opened up the floodgates of corruption and financial excess that generated the Great Depression. A new Progressive Movement, dubbed the New Deal, led to steep top tax rates, strict financial regulations, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, eventually generating the current economic crisis.

Bill Cosby "I'm 76 and Tired" "I'm 76 and I'm Tired" I'm 76. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired. I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it. I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to. I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK , America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance.. I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off? I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems. I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government. Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 76.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in. There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference. " I'm 76 and I'm tired... And If you don't forward this you are part of the problem". =

Let’s get this straight: Democrats in Wisconsin want to take Walker out by relying on the information they glean from this supposed-to-be-secret investigation. A Democrat District Attorney is leading this investigation and a tremendous number of his staff signed petitions to remove Governor Walker from office. The newspaper that gets all the well-placed leaks and tends to spin the story to favor liberals and Democrats is silent about this expose of partisanship and bias.

This looks like a classic case of a liberal media establishment, a far-left political party, and a highly partisan set of public officials trying to get away with destroying a conservative political opponent. If this is what it is, let’s hope it fails and kudos to the guys at Media Trackers who discovered the bias, partisanship, and horrible conflict of interest.

FROM Andrew Ian Dodge:

Then Again... Perhaps We Should Apologize.

Perhaps we DO owe Mr. Karzai an apology. According to a number of sources, including a report filed by the BBC, defacing the Koran "is regarded as blasphemy and PUNISHABLE BY DEATH in both Pakistan and Afghanistan." [Emphasis Ours]

So Mr. Karzai, we're sorry for NOT immediately executing those terrorists, hoodlums and thugs for defacing those Koran's, in accordance with your own laws and traditions. And while we're issuing apologies, Mr. Karzai, we're sorry for providing those Korans, at U.S. taxpayer's expense, to your homegrown terrorists in the first place. We're sorry, Mr. Karzai, for attempting to dispose of those Koran's PROPERLY. (Oh yes, we checked it out on a number of Islamic forums and the consensus is that defaced Korans must be either burned or submerged in water until the words dissolve from the printed pages.) We deeply regret Mr. Karzai that we, at least tried, to respect your holy books by burning them.

We're sorry, Mr. Karzai, that your country's penchant for harboring terrorists and thugs made it necessary for our brave men and women in uniform to fight and DIE in your backwater country. We're sorry for releasing your people from the tyranny of the Taliban; and we're sorry, Mr. Karzai, for all the foreign aid we've given to your country over the years. We're sorry that, in spite of the aid we have provided to you, you force your people to live in abject poverty and imprison those who commit blasphemy by leaving the Islamic faith. And most of all Mr. Karzai, we're sorry that our elected leaders lack the guts to tell you to take your phony outrage and demands and stick them where the sun does not shine.

And now that we've issued our "apology," we DEMAND that you to see to it that those murderous thugs who killed innocent Americans in the name of feigned moral outrage are hunted down like the dogs that they are and properly punished by your hand; and YOU WILL pay reparations to the families of the brutally slain as well!

You make a lot more sense then the person who wrote the article.......The woes we have in this economy, was not caused "entirely, or even mostly" by the investment bankers.....everyone must take some blame----The banks, loaning money to people they knew could not pay it back, for houses, that were "way" over prised....(who cares how much something costs, as long as you know you'll never have to pay for it) That is what took down the housing market.......Congress, who passed laws forcing banks to loan money to people that they, knew would never pay it back, (why should they care, is all they're doing is buying votes, and until the 2010 election, that had never came back to bit them.....And last (probably not last,there are a # of other things, that contributed).....All the government agencies, that are funneling our tax dollars to every special interest group and union, in the world....(like all things GREEN).....All together a perfect storm, taking down the economy of the world....All I'm saying, is don't pick one, part of the problem and say "they did it" when anyone with 1/2 a brain, knows better.....
