Supreme court Arrogance…

 Healthcare debates, health care decisions are going to be made that
will effect your life and the lives of those you love…

 

You know it is with great respect that men and women of all ages salute the Flag of the United States of America, for many years it has been what has kept this nation free.

We look back into the Unrevised Historical nature of the Declaration of Independence and we see not only those men who gave their lives in service to this great nation but also the families that sacrificed precious time with fathers and mothers so that so many of us might be free to pursue liberty and happiness.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

My Father was one of those men and he gave deeply to this Nation, I lost him in 2008 not to War as we all thought the case would be nor was it a case of sickness but to the lack of adequate, medical care in rural America, I know he loved the country and that was his life, he lived it with no fears and he was a great man but he was also a hero a man from Arkansas that served God and Country to the exclusion of everything else his mind was unaltered and with this have many men been saved.

Medical care in this nation is woefully under staffed, often you can walk into an emergency room in the rural areas of this nation and find equipment that is too old and all but impotent for the most basic of medical services.

My father was a Hero, both to this nation and his family, he lost his life not on the battle field, but in an emergency room that did not have the proper equipment necessary to save his life, Though at the time we did not realize that it was already too late, when I learned that he was delayed for one hour in this small town while they waited for an ambulance to take him to a larger hospital, that one hour they often call the golden hour.

The golden hour refers to a time period lasting from a few minutes to several hours following traumatic injury being sustained by a casualty, during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical treatment will prevent death. 

It has been well established that the patient’s chances of survival are greatest if they receive care within a short period of time after an injury.

My father flew into the jungles of Vietnam and risked his life for the freedom and his love of this nation.

Often He risked his life to bring valuable intelligence that saved the lives of men in the battlefield, yet when he needed a life flight to save his life, all they could manage was an ambulance, during which time he suffered continued medical damage to his heart, it was preventable.

I find it amazing that in a day and age of health care reform and the uniqueness that is this great America that my father lost his life because of a lack of care in a world that would not be free if not for men like my father.

I feel strongly that medical equipment needs to be in the hands of those that can make use of it including rural areas where resources are not as great as they are in larger areas.

water boarding?

In a perfect world, there would be no evil, never would the rain fall during a parade.

In a perfect world the world would be friendly and men would all be friends, we would all just get along…

But the truth is that we do not live in that perfect world that so many people wish we lived in.

You know this is a hot topic, in many political circles, but you do have to consider this issue, and yes it is not a good thing to be doing.

The problem is this, if you are responsible for the welfare of a people, a nation, a country, and you know that your enemies, will be doing this to your soldiers, then you know that is part of what you will need to do in order to be prepared in the face of a hostile enemy.

The fact of the matter is that this is not something that just came up over the last few years, it has in fact been going on since the days of the earliest known record keeping, as far back as the Egyptian empire used it, they used it in Vietnam, I can tell you that it has been done, to every special forces soldier in the armed forces.  A man would be a fool to not be prepared in the event this is used as a method of extracting information, we know this is the truth, yet there is somehow this idea that we should not be doing what our enemies do to our own members of armed forces.

No force for good or evil would ever consider facing an enemy without being prepared for the eventual capture and escape that might occur should you face an armed force that would be stupid, in fact it would spell the end of your people, we know this from the study of history.

The truth is that we as a species are not this ignorant, when faced with the facts waterboarding no matter how bad it may seem is a fact that we have to deal with we cannot just say that it is illegal and not moral, of course it is not and in fact neither is the decapitation of a man but that is what we have seen our enemies do to our own.

It is distasteful, it is abhorrent, but it is a fact and that is the one thing that you cannot ignore.

The truth is it has been used for hundreds of years, and it will continue to be used, nothing is going to change that.

So, even if you think it is a horrible evil thing, there are worse things…

That is something that you have to understand.

While it might sound important and interesting to be totally against water boarding the truth is that when you face an enemy,
that has no problem doing this then you have to deal with that eventual issue you cannot simply stick you head in the sand and say
never never never, the truth is that when it comes to saving the lives of millions of people, be it Americans, or others around the world,
the fact is that you have to consider this issue.

Ignoring the enemy is not an option that we can afford to engage in it might help you sleep better at night but what we know about
the enemy is the reality that our armed forces deal with it is the reality that we have to believe in.

Richard Blumenthal

Ok this is really easy, Richard Blumenthal attorney general of Connecticut, did he actually lie about serving in Vietnam?

Well then I guess that pretty much says it all, either the guy was in Vietnam or he was not and that seems obvious that he was not but he wanted us to think he was, that is dishonest and ugly in the extreme.

There are so many issues in this country why lie about this, and you know what makes it worse is those donkeys that stood up for this cheap punk who impersonates people that really did go to Vietnam and gave their lives for our freedom.

To me that is a sickness and we do not need more of this liberal sickness spreading through America.

If you cannot trust officials who swear to protect the constitution because they are liars, then how can you trust them to do anything, ask any police man you have ever met what they think about a liar, you will find out that it is not a joke it is not a misunderstanding, it is not anything but what it is and that is wrong…

This guy does not deserve to be a senator I dont care how many democrats come out and try to muddy the water.
