The Us Isn’t Good Enough For You? Then Your Opinions Aren’t Either

It fascinates me how people who are either not from this country at all like Piers Morgan or those who have left this country for higher crime ridden areas, such as British Columbia, like DJ Allan feel that they have the right to have any sort of opinion about gun rights, how crime is being handled, or any Race discussions in the United States.

One of these individuals isn’t wanted back by his country, and the other, a former Felon ( Yes, once a bad boy, always a bad boy) is probably in trouble again. This gives nether any credibility in any forum other than a bar or street corner where the insane gather to keep warm around a fire.

So Gentlemen, shut the fuck up, crawl back in your holes and remember this. Rednecks are not any of your friends.

Conspiracy Theories/ An Open Letter to Anderson Cooper Posted to CNN

Anderson, Conspiracy theories only exist in a vacuum. In the Newtown case, there are many areas where CNN and the rest of the media have dropped the ball on following up on the story, causing independent theories to spring up. These, among others are, First, the shooter used a long rifle (AR-15), then a video was shown of the Police removing said rifle from the trunk of the car he supposedly drove. VACUUM First, he had 2 handguns, then there were 3. VACUUM The helicopter showed at least 2 other people running from the scene in the woods. Who were they and where did they fit in? VACUUM It was reported by survivors, that a man in Camos was seen running through the halls. Who was he and where is he? VACUUM Shooters Mother ID as a teacher, then a school worker, then a substitute teacher, then school claims no knowledge of her employment. No follow-up? VACUUM No interviews with Ex-husband, other son school staff, teachers? VACUUM What happen to investigative journalism? If they could have gotten close enough, reporters would have had a microphone in Jackie Kennedy’s face at Park General Hospital. It would seem that CNN has caught the Piers Morgan bug and only wants to jump on the Anti-Gun Bandwagon. How about doing something original, particularly you Anderson, and follow in the footsteps of greats such as Murrow and Cronkite and get the answers instead of tearing down those who are trying to do just that.

Merry Christmas

I would like to wish one and all a Merry Christmas.

May your happiness and generosity spread to those who don’t have the basic essentials to live day to day.

Please think of them and give generously to the Salvation Army and to the Veterans Associations. Local food banks and shelters can use all the help they can get, so please think of them as well.

An Open Letter To The FDA

This morning, I sent an open letter to the FDA concerning Monsanto’s GMO’s in the open market. It seems that all testing that was done was done only by Monsanto and then rubber stamped by the FDA. The letter is posted below and I will follow up with the FDA’s response as soon as I receive it.

LETTER TO THE FDA:   ‘consumer@fda.gov’

I have been reading the FDA’s Consumer guides and documents to the tests and assurances of the safety of Genetically Modified Foods such as Corn, Soy and Beets and am concerned that the findings that have the FDA’s approval on them were all subject to testing by Monsanto themselves and then rubber stamped, with no further follow up by the FDA. This is reminiscent of  Aspartame when it was released without any testing, in the 80’s. Now we are getting warnings from the FDA of health problems being caused by Aspartame after all these years.

The number of people using Aspartame is nothing compared to those being exposed to GMO foods, which are being shown in France, the UK, Canada and South America to be causing serious problems with Genetic Modifications (DNA) in Lab Animals, Cancerous Tumors, changes in Thyroid growth and condition. Also, several countries have or are in the process of banning these seeds all together.

I ask you, as a concerned consumer to please pull these products from the market until they can be properly tested by the government and independent labs. It seems to me that if there wasn’t a hidden problem with the Modified Foods, Monsanto would not have objected so readily to the California Proposition to label all GMO foods.

If they don’t feel there is a problem, show it on the label and come right out and defend the products to the public by publicizing their studies and their findings. All they are doing by fighting labeling is adding fuel to the fire.

 

 

I look forward to your response.

Army mom: Military suicides ‘out of control’

 

By Randal Yakey – The News Herald via AP
Posted : Sunday Nov 25, 2012 11:16:31 EST

CALLAWAY, Fla. — Libby Busbee pounded on the window of her son’s maroon Dodge Charger as he sat in the driveway of their home earlier this year. Locked inside his car, Army Spc. William Busbee sat with a .45-caliber gun pointed to the side of his head.

“Look at me,” his mother cried out as she tried to get her son’s attention. “Look at me.”

He wouldn’t look.

Special report:

Losing the war on suicide

He stared out the front windshield, distant, said Libby Busbee, relating the story from an apartment complex in Callaway.

“I kept yelling, ‘Don’t you do this. Don’t do it.’ He wouldn’t turn his head to look at me,” she said, looking down at the burning cigarette in her hand.

A 911 call was made. The police pulled her away from the car.

William, Libby Busbee’s 23-year-old son, was talking with a police officer when he fired a shot through the front windshield of his car, according to the police report.

The police recoiled. William rapped on the window in apparent frustration, the report indicated.

Then the second shot was heard.

“I knew that was the one,” said Libby Busbee.

William Busbee took his life in March with his mother and sisters looking on.

Casualty of war?

William Busbee was no casualty of the war in Afghanistan. He was a casualty of his own mind, his mother said.

Libby Busbee bowed her head, talking as she sat next to a bird-of-paradise on the front porch of her apartment. She could no longer live in the home on 12th Street.

“They wouldn’t let me talk to him,” she said, referring to the day her son shot himself. “I know if he was able to see me he wouldn’t have done it.”

According to a Veterans Affairs report this spring, a veteran commits suicide every 80 minutes. More than 6,500 suicides have occurred since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan began. For every service member who dies in battle, 25 veterans die by their own hands.

According to a Pentagon report, more American active service members have killed themselves in the first six months of 2012 than in the first six months of any of the previous 11 years, The Associated Press reported.

The report reveals 154 service members killed themselves in the first 155 days of 2012 alone. The number of deaths by suicide is 50 percent higher than combat deaths in Afghanistan during the same period and an 18 percent increase over active service member suicides in the first six months of 2011.

And, while only 1 percent of Americans have served in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, veterans of these conflicts represent 20 percent of all suicides in the United States, the VA reported.

Nightmares

Libby Busbee said when her son returned home, he didn’t leave the war behind.

“He saw horrible things — his friends dying,” she said. “The people over there were constantly attacking them. He even said the kids would be with them when they attacked.”

William Busbee was in the Army Special Forces, airborne and the Army Rangers.

“He told me how he picked up the body parts and loaded them onto a helicopter so their families would have something to bury,” she said.

She said her son had tried to commit suicide in Pesh Valley of Afghanistan. “He told me, ‘Momma, the William you knew died over there,’ ” she said.

On his return home, “He couldn’t be in the dark — at all. He’d flip out in the dark,” she said. “He was sleepwalking and they gave him 400 milligrams of Seroquel, they gave him Paxil, Klonopins. They had him on a lot of stuff. I don’t think he knew which way to go.

“When he would have his nightmares he would stand right up staring at me,” she said. “He would say, ‘Who are you?’ “

It was as though her son was not inside his body at times, she said.

“It was the medications,” Libby Busby said. “That caused hallucinations.”

She stared out across the green patch of lawn across from her apartment as her daughters played inside.

“We thought he was happy, and then he killed himself right in front of us,” she said.

Shortage of professionals

Deb Tainsh Of Panama City Beach has become friends with Libby Busbee. Tainsh has been a fighter against the silence surrounding veterans affairs issues.

Tainsh and her husband, David, are the parents of Army Sgt. Patrick Tainsh, who was killed in Iraq in 2004. They are the founders and executive directors of Bereaved Military Families of America & Hearts for Military Heroes Veterans Assistance Program, a Florida all volunteer not-for-profit organization.

Tainsh traveled to Washington, D.C., to rally more support for veterans in the Gulf Coast area. She was unable to get to Gen. Eric Shinseki, secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, but she did make contact with his staff.

“The Veterans Administration was supposed to get 1,900 mental health professionals, and a couple were to be coming to Panama City,” Tainsh said. “What has become of the them?”

In April, Shinseki announced the increase in mental health care workers would be 1,600. The VA said it was moving quickly to address this top priority, but they are not here yet.

Tainsh has admitted she feels anger at the number of suicides she sees among young veterans.

“Like I told the director of the VA Gulf Coast, it is a monster out of control,” Tainsh said. “They are not prepared for the number of veterans.”

Tainsh said it was about leadership and doctors who work in the hospitals.

“There is a lack of professional personnel to deal with the veterans,” she said. “An example of that is our Delwood Clinic here in Panama City.

“There was a professional mental health doctor there who left in the past several months, and I have heard from a number of our local veterans that hated to see him go because he was one of the best,” she continued. “I learned later that he left because he could not deal with the volume.”

That doctor declined to speak with The News Herald.

Delwood Chief Managing Officer Robert Mishra agreed there is a shortage of psychiatrists at Delwood.

“We have two psychiatrists and two nurse practitioners,” he said. “There is a shortage out there.”

Mishra said the veterans clinics are having trouble retaining qualified help. “The private sector pays more.”

Suicides not going down

Edwin R. Ailes, president and CEO of Life Management Center of Northwest Florida, said the rise in suicides is troubling but probably will not subside since the number of veterans coming home from war continues.

“We are seeing people requesting help that have military experience coming to Life Management Center,” Ailes said. “And sadly this will go on for a long time. We still see persons with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and suicidal thinking from the Vietnam era, and we’re relatively certain we will see this well into the future with persons who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Ailes also noted that family members and friends of suicide victims are left with feelings of anger, sadness and guilt. He believes the experiences of the combatant are unique to them, and they often become reclusive.

“Witnessing combat is not normal life,” said Ailes. “Witnessing tragedy is not normal life.”

Ailes said traumatic events are constantly being repeated in the service member’s mind.

“It is the traumatic event over and over again,” Ailes said. “It is a constant battle within.”

Ailes, who did not wish to comment on the Busbee case specifically, said mixing drugs and taking too much of one type of drug could be detrimental to an individual’s health. Overdoses of prescribed medicine can add to a person’s psychological problems, he said.

A family moves on

Libby Busbee continues to do the best for her daughters. But she wonders how long the impressions they had of that day William Busby took his life will continue to impact their lives. She smiles as guests enter her home, a smile that struggles.

During a recent interview, she sifted through the bottle of pills in a plastic bag and looked at the labels from three pharmacies in three states.

She wonders what could have been for her son. She doesn’t believe he got the help he deserved.

She has saved a lot of the belongings her son left behind — the uniform with Army Special Forces badge, a Rangers badge and Airborne badge. She doesn’t know what all the medals mean.

On his last day, William Busbee had his uniform cleaned and pressed. She keeps the uniform hanging in a closet. She rarely takes it out.

She has saved several of the last text messages she received from her son on the day he killed himself. One still haunts her to this day: “I love you.”

List of drugs

William Busbee had numerous drugs, or the metabolites of drugs, in his body after his death. He had prescriptions for some of these drugs from three pharmacies in three states.

Present in the body: Tramadol (pain reliever), bupropion (antidepressant), paroxetine (anti-anxiety), alpha-hydroxyalprazolam (metabolite of alprazolam, anti-anxiety/panic disorder), cannabinoids (marijuana), oxycodone (pain reliever)

Prescribed but not present: Seroquel (schizophrenia/bipolar disorder), Paxil (antidepressant), Prazosin (high blood pressure), clonazepam (anti-anxiety), ondansetron (anti-nausea), cyproheptadine (allergies), Percocet (pain reliever)

You Say You Want A Revoulution

As previously noted, there are petitions for secession for all 50 states posted to whitehouse.gov. There is little or no mention of this in the Main Stream Media. Just what is the MSM? Newspapers, CNN, NBC.ABC,CBS,FOX ETC. These news organizations are in the pocket of the government.

It’s not like the 70’s when The Washington Post brought down the Nixon Administration with Watergate, and Walter Cronkite at CBS talked openly about Vietnam and stirred up the entire country. The papers and the TV’s had people marching in the streets, rioting, changing things.

Now, the best you can do is attract a Flash Mob of a couple of thousand people with Twitter and just manage to irritate a few Cops.

What the media does is ignore such things as secession, and cover it up with the Middle East, while the President ignores the obvious long enough for it to expire or die down.

Even people doubt what they read on the web. There is so much disbelief over what is written by bloggers. We are rated one step above malcontents, communists, extremists and total idiots.

Well, if that’s what you want to think, get rid of your damn Facebook accounts, and cell phones. Talk about a bunch of bullshit information.

If you don’t believe bloggers, then read this from 1775;

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

DEAR AMERICA’S LEADERS

APOLOGIES TO JON BONJOVI

“It’s My Life”

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive

My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life

Better stand tall when they’re calling you out
Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive

[Chorus:]
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway

I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life!

Israel vs Everyone

Israelite’s, Muslim’s, Christian’s. What are the differences, other than the different Prophets?

Well, first of all, there are no Israelite’s any longer. Other than that nothing. Per DNA, they were/are all related by blood dating back to the beginning of time as is known by religion. Two brothers, one who became Jewish, the other Muslim. The Muslim brother had many wives, hundreds of children, thousands of grandchildren and the list goes on to modern-day Palestine.

The Israelis are again bombing the Gaza strip and Palestine as they have done ever since 1948. Between Palestinians and Arabs, they have killed 90,785 and wounded 67,602. These numbers were prior to this latest incursion.

The world has the British and their Balfour Treaty to thank for the division of Palestine and Egypt into Israel after WW2.

You remember WW2. The Holocaust? How can you forget when the Jews have screamed the word for over 70 years.

Here are some facts, courtesy of the Web.

Camps were begun to house Jews December 8, 1941. These continued until the wars end in 1945. This was a total of 1118 days.

For the Germans to have killed 6 Million Jews, they would have had to kill 5367 Men, Woman and Children every day for 1118 days, ignoring the Russian front, the Invasion of France and the defense of Germany.

Forget that during this same period Gypsies, Spanish, Czechs, Poles, Germans, French, Americans, Russians, ET AL were also confined and being tortured, starved and killed as slave labor.

Many ground penetrating radar expeditions have been done and no mass graves have been found around the camps. The Gas Chambers have no residue of Xyclon-B, which leaves a blue stain on walls.

So, what about now?

The Israeli people are committing the same type of murder that they have continue to blame Germany of for Generations.

They want to kill off the last bastions of any DNA of the creation of the largest Religions in the World.

The only people who are even remotely upset are the Muslims. Christians are taught that Jesus was a Jew, so they support the Jews in their insane policies of Ethnic Cleansing.

 

WAKE UP CHRISTIANS!

 

These are not the Israelite’s. They are Sephardic, Ashkenazi and Mizrahi origins from the Middle East, Europe and North Africa.

They are not the blood of your Christ. The Palestinians actually are, and are dying because you are blind and won’t insist that your government stop supporting a renegade regime run by people no better than Hitler.

If you insist in believing in religion, then REALLY believe and support Gods real children, not murderers.

It’s About Damn Time!

I’ve been out of print too damn long!

This country is really going to shit and I’m sorry, but my fellow bloggers have either given up or have taken the “Don’t the flowers smell nice today” approach.

As of today,  we are living in a socialistic country with steadily eroding freedoms, millions are homeless due to storms and foreclosures, and why? We are a service oriented economy, not a manufacturing economy any more. Thank NAFTA, thank Clinton, Bush and of course, Obama. Where Japan owned us, a few years ago, now our master is China, and they’re not going to let go so easily.

Bail out GM. Six new plants in China, Detroit in default, bail out Chrysler, Jeeps going to be built-in Italy, huge plant closed in Delaware.

Mass meetings, worrying about MRP attacks on our Electrical Grids, infrastructure computerized controls. Reams of governmental papers. Big transformers made in India. One magnetic burst and we’ll have no electricity for years. Takes 6 months to build one transformer.

They have known about this for several years. Many meetings at Hopkins Applied Physics, lots of hand wringing, and what has been done? Zip, Zero, Nada! No transformer plants, in the US. No hardening of infrastructure controls.

But, what they have done is fit a device on a drone, that can launch an MRP attack over a city in the US or elsewhere that has, say decided to secede from the union or perhaps revolt against Obama’s rules, such as TSA road blocks, or FEMA Camps. This would bring a select city or state to its knee’s.

And, just in time. As of today, there are over 60 petitions filed with the Whitehouse.gov requesting secession of all 50 states from the union. I figure that effort will be reported in the Main Stream Media about as well as Obama’s trail results over his Birth Certificate.

So, that’s it for today.

Don’t bother sending anything else to the Sandy victims. Bloomberg and FEMA will not allow food or clothing through. Find legit cash contributions other than the Red Cross. Eighty Cents of every Dollar goes in their pockets.
