It’s been a long day

Today I went back to the hospital to get medication for my epilepsy, and I met a met a man who met Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. WOW. He was nine when he met him, and this man-himself-was pretty remarkable. He was very kind. He was my bus driver, and I must say-a very good one at that! A lady pulled out right in front of us, and he had no problem missing her. (We were turning. Many other bus drivers would have plowed her down. Oh, wait a minute, we’re not in New York anymore, are we? lol)

I get to the hospital (there are many clinics in Harbor/UCLA student hospital), and I have to go through screening. What a freakin’ trip. Now you have to picture this. I’m using a walker, I’m wearing a heavy sweater that buttons because it is raining (HAHAHA, it was trickling), I have one wrist that still doesn’t work right (it’s very painful to pick up a soda, let alone a walker!), gotta empty those pockets (I learned from before to put everything in my other pocket, the hand that I could use), get through that, gotta go get blood tests, going through the x-ray machine they took off the two bags my brother tied onto my walker so I don’t have to carry anything), and there I am. Bagless, wristless, and useless!

I wanted to poke them in the eye when they said, “Well, you would have gone around, we wouldn’t have to do this.” WHAT? WHY DIDN’T YOU SAY SO??? Argghhh! So I’m standing there. Looking like an idiot. Yup. I cannot tie the bags back on, and no one was going to help me. No one did. I managed to get home, ate, and fell asleep. Missed the State of the Union (so what, right?!), and here I am. Oh, my bandaged/cast came apart, so I had to fix that. Thank God I was at home when it happened. I think I may have lost it otherwise. LOL.

No, I wouldn’t have lost it, but sometimes it’s fun to think of what that would look/feel like. Anyone have any ideas or pictures of what it would look like if I flipped out? I’d love to read/see them! Have a morning (Hey, I just woke up!).

Naughty, Naughty Flintstones!

I love this little video, and hope you will too. It is an evil, gross, global warming enemy, and children attacking video. If you do NOT want your children to see this, ask them to leave the room, please. While this may be a funny video for those of us who are tired of being told how to live our lives, I just wanted to give you fair warning. Have a great weekend.

    Sunday Evening Bloglines 11.18.2007

    Blackfive:

    On PTSD, or more properly, on Coming Home.

    There’s quite a bit about myself I’m not going to tell you, now or ever. I will tell you some things you haven’t heard before, to be sure, but I won’t tell you why I know what I know. Just see if it seems right to you. [Continue reading.]

    Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive’s:

    Sheepdogs in civilian society (more coming home).

    They became sheepdogs. Once you march to the sound of gunfire you are a different person and that matters. When you get back most people will have absolutely no idea what you feel like, where you have been, or what you have done. That is not a lick on you, if anything that is a flaw in their life experience. Is there a greater honor than to have served your country in wartime? [Continue reading “Sheepdogs in civilian society (more coming home)“]

    Deebow at Blackfive’s:

    More support for the troops.

    Once again, blind stupidity in the face of overwhelming evidence that our soldiers continue to make progress toward victory.

      As a result, he (Secretary Gates) said he is faced with the undesirable task of preparing to cease operations at Army bases by mid-February, and lay off about 100,000 defense department employees and an equal number of civilian contractors. A month later, he said, similar moves would have to be made by the Marines.

    [Among other things…] Troops will not get paid. [Continue reading]

    Blackfive:

    A Surgeon’s Letters Home From Iraq.

    Let me introduce you to Chris, a USAF Surgeon, and milblogger at “Made A Difference” on his second tour in Iraq: [Continue reading.]

    Gathering of Eagles:

    More on Redacted.

    I called the Dallas Mavericks front office today to express my displeasure at Mark Cuban’s funding of Redacted. I started the conversation by saying, “I hope this isn’t the only phone call you’re going to receive like this, but I am a soldier and I never raped nor murdered anyone.” The woman on the other end of the line said, “Why would you blame Mark?” When I responded, “Because he funded the project,” I found myself talking to dead air. [Continue reading.]

    This one I could not pass up from The Spirit of Man.

    Isn’t that adorable? LOL.

    Now for some politics. Gregg Jackson is both a Christian and an active participant in today’s political scene. He also shares a radio program with Kevin on Sunday nights from 7-10 pm EST (there’s also a streamline) and is a friend of mine. He brings us Romniacs ignore evidence against their messiah. This is a very good article which voters should read. Just so that you are armed with the Truth, not so that you will hate anyone. You know me, and I do not promote hate. However, I do promote truth, whether or not it hurts. After all, which do you value more? Truth? Politics? With Romney, you have to wonder about both, IMHO, and if you truly do stand with him. Read Gregg’s article. He used to be a citizen of Taxachusetts.

    Update: I have just read an amazing collection of articles combined in one post by This ain’t Hell, but you can see it from here titled, “Where’s the war? (UPDATED).”

    Reading the usual newspapers and wire services this morning, I was surprised to find that there’s no mention of the war in either Iraq or Afghanistan. D’ya think we’re weary of the war and that’s why the Washington Post doesn’t even have it’s usual link to the US casualties on the front webpage? Nope, I don’t think that’s the reason at all. The war is beginning to go the way it should have gone four years ago. [Continue reading.]

    This is a very good and easy read. He talks about politics, because politics is affecting his life, he also talks about several articles he has read. Please go give him a visit. He is fighting for your right to be free. It’s the least you can do. Oh, and leave a comment of encouragement, but only if you are sincere. There’s enough bullcrap going around. I’m quite sure he doesn’t need anymore. Thank you.

    For those of you who are first time visitors to this site or others who simply just don’t know, I do get much of my information from Milbloggers, Iraqis, Afghanistanis, Persians, Venezuelans, etc. If I relied on the news that is put out these days, I’d be writing about the demonrats talking points.

    TGIF…why?

    For a blogger this is supposed to be a time of relaxation, because the traffic (people reading our stuff that we deem important, funny, and all that jazz) has slowed down. This is the time we have found that we can fiddle around with those things we’ve been trying to get done but could not. WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT THAT?!? (lol)

    I’m just saying this because, as many of you know, I am in the process of moving over 4,000 posts from other sites over to this one, Rosemary’s Thoughts. I’m not going to erase the other sites, just in case someone happens to stop by. I’ll let them know I have moved and to where. This is how much fun I’ll be having. STOP LAUGHING!

    Sheesh. You’d think my friends would care. You’d think they would let me know a teeny-weeny bit of their knowledge as to how to do this in one step, but noooooooooooooo. They’d rather sit there and laugh at me! Well, I must confess, it is kind of funny if you know what I’m talking about and you don’t have to do it! LOL.

    That is why this is going to have to be my open trackback post for today. I know. It is neither funny, entertaining, informative, intelligent, or anything else, but it’s what I’ve got. Deal with it. (j/k)

    95%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?LOL. There is no way this test of 14 questions can be accurate. Just because I found something I like, and I can find more news online does not make me an addict! Just because I’ll blog about anything (such as this!) does not make me addict. Just because I have over 5 blogs, they did not allow me to explain that I’m trying to move each site over to this one so I could blog quicker and about everything right here. No, this is not nor is it an accurate test of my character. I refuse to be an addict, plain and simple! Come on, guys, I already gave up the booze. What more do you want?! 😉

    Update: On a more serious note, here is an article that everyone should read about President Bush’ visit to the al Anbar province: The Gettysburg of This War, by Frederick W. Kagan.

    Source: My brother emailed this to me.

    Read down to the very bottom highlighted in green,
    IT’LL GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS!

    You don’t want to miss this! ((*_*))

    VERY INTERESTING-

    1. The Garden of Eden was in Iraq.
    2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization!
    3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.
    4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.
    5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq!
    6. Isaac’s wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Iraq!
    7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.
    8. Jonah preached in Nineveh – which is in Iraq.
    9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel.
    10. Amos cried out in Iraq!
    11 Babylon , which is in Iraq , destroyed Jerusalem.
    12. Daniel was in the lion’s den in Iraq!
    13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth person in the Fiery Furnace!)
    14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the ‘writing on the wall’ in Iraq.
    15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.
    16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq ..
    17. The wise men were from Iraq ..
    18. Peter preached in Iraq.
    19. The ‘Empire of Man’ described in Revelation is called Babylon, which was a city in Iraq!

    And you have probably seen this one:

    Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible.
    But do you know which nation is second?
    It is Iraq!
    However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible.

    The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia.
    The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers,
    more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers ..

    The name Iraq, means country with deep roots.

    Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.

    No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq

    And also, This is something to think about:

    Since America is typically represented by an eagle.

    Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages…

    The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)

    Koran (9:11) – For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah;

    And there was peace.
    (Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!

    This is a ribbon for soldiers fighting in Iraq.

    Pass it on to everyone and pray.

    Reading all the threats everyday that this country is facing, sure can get to a person. That is why Uncle Jimbo is such a great guy. I can always count on him to lift my spirits. He has the right words at the right time to apply to right people. You just have to read his take on Hillary’s question given to the Defense Department. He is spot-on!

    Would you like to know the question? Okay, here it is:

    Dear Mr. Secretary:

    On May 22, 2007, I wrote to you to request that you provide the appropriate oversight committees in Congress – including the Senate Armed Services Committee – with briefings on what current contingency plans exist for the future withdrawal of United States forces from Iraq. Alternatively, if no such plans exist, I asked for an explanation for the decision not to engage in such planning.

    I am in receipt of a letter from Eric Edelman, the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy who wrote that he was responding on your behalf. Under Secretary Edelman’s response did not address the issues raised in my letter and instead made spurious arguments to avoid addressing contingency planning for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq.

    As I noted in my original letter, “the seeds of many problems that continue to plague our troops and mission in Iraq were planted in the failure to adequately plan for the conflict and properly equip our men and women in uniform. Congress must be sure that we are prepared to withdraw our forces without any unnecessary danger.”

    Rather than offer to brief the congressional oversight committees on this critical issue, Under Secretary Edelman – writing on your behalf – instead claims that congressional oversight emboldens our enemies. Under Secretary Edelman has his priorities backward. Open and honest debate and congressional oversight strengthens our nation and supports our military. His suggestion to the contrary is outrageous and dangerous. Indeed, you acknowledged the importance of Congress in our Iraq policy at a hearing before the House Armed Services Committee in March, when you stated, “I believe that the debate here on the Hill and the issues that have been raised have been helpful in bringing pressure to bear on the Maliki government and on the Iraqis in knowing that there is a very real limit to American patience in this entire enterprise.”

    Redeploying out of Iraq will be difficult and requires careful planning. I continue to call on the Bush Administration to immediately provide a redeployment strategy that will keep our brave men and women safe as they leave Iraq – instead of adhering to a political strategy to attack those who rightfully question their competence and preparedness after years of mistakes and misjudgments.

    Other members of this Administration have not engaged in political attacks when the prospect of withdrawal planning has been raised. At the June 7 Armed Services Committee confirmation hearing on Lieutenant General Douglas Lute, I asked General Lute “what level of planning has taken place” and “whether the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs have been briefed about the level of planning.” I also asked General Lute to determine “what kind of timeline would exist if a decision for either military or political reasons were taken to begin withdrawal” and if he considered this kind of planning to be part of his responsibilities.

    General Lute replied, “Thank you Senator. I do think such an adaptation, if the conditions on the ground call for it, will be part of this position.”

    I renew my request for a briefing, classified if necessary, on current plans for the future withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq or an explanation for the decision not to engage in such planning. I also renew my concern that our troops will be placed in unnecessary danger if the Bush Administration fails to plan for the withdrawal of U.S. Forces. Finally, I request that you describe whether Under Secretary Edelman’s letter accurately characterizes your views as Secretary of Defense.

    I would appreciate the courtesy of a prompt response directly from you. Thank you for your consideration.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hillary Rodham Clinton

    (Hat tip: MyDD. Be careful. It’s a ‘Leftie for Hillary’ site I got it from. lol)

    If you will notice, her letter to him was released for publication. Was his? I don’t know, but I doubt it. (Won’t swear to it, though.) Anyway, I thought Uncle Jimbo handled this just fine. Yes, fine indeed. Go over and have a great laugh and a great day!

    Physicians:
    a. The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
    b. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000. c. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

    Now think about this . . ..

    Guns:
    a. The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
    b. The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
    c. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188.

    Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. _________________

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand! _________________
    Note: Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

    With gracious gratitude to my brother, who knows how I feel about that them doctors, I would like to tip my hat! Oh yes, and gun RIGHTS, too! Thank you, Mr. GrassRoots.

    The other day, I noticed I was receiving well over 100 emails a day! That was all well and good, but many of them were just verifying that we ‘dugg’ this or that of our group members articles. When using Digg, you can find out who “Dugg” by clicking on one of the buttons (if it was your article, I think).

    Well. I woke up this morning at around 3:30 am and lo and behold, there were NO messages from our group, Conservative Post Pimp! I hope everyone didn’t get the wrong message. We just shouldn’t email every time we ‘digg’ an article, because everyone in the group gets an email. Google groups, that is.

    I enjoy a good joke here and there, and they lift me up during my day of researching news and politics. Sometimes I would even say, “Thanks. I needed that!” (Does anyone remember that commercial? lol) Please, don’t feel as if you cannot email anymore just to make us smile or because you’ve written something and you would like our advise or comments. Heck, isn’t that why we started this group after all?

    Did you ever…

    …think of a really cool song in your head, but forgot it before you could put it on paper?

    …think of a really good topic to discuss, but forgot to write it down before you feel asleep?

    …know the answer to a complicated question, but forgot it before the teacher got around to calling on you?

    Well, I am having one of those days, so don’t expect too much from me! LOL. BTW, there are so many ‘Have you ever’s’ for me to compile just one list. These were things that actually happened to me – today – so I guess they’re not actually made up. That’s why I stopped when I did. That’s depressing, and I just woke up. However I refuse to allow it to get ne into a funk about it. 🙂

    Woe is me!

    It is almost 5pm, and I am just waking up. It may have something to do with the fact that I did not go to sleep until after noon! I was working on trying to duplicate this template with one that had my ‘Rosemary’s Thoughts’ as its URL. You would not believe how HARD that is to do!

    Why would I want to do that, anyway? To make it easier for you guys. If you would like to find me, either bookmark me, add me to your sidebar so you don’t have to remember the URL or google me. lol. I have to go back now and erase my registration for the other site in Feed.Feedburner! Oivay!

    Oh, by the time I got to my email, I had 117 messages! Wow! If I haven’t gotten back to you yet, please do not despair. It takes a while to go through them. I have some DoD Daily News work to do yet (but you can catch it first at DoD Daily News-2). I also have some religious posts that need updating, and I also have some news for Knickerbocker News. But enough about my ‘to do’s’. lol.

    Have a good day everyone, and don’t forget to let your senators hear your voices on this amnesty bill! There is another cloture vote in the morning, June 28, 2007. We MUST kill this bill. The number is TOLL FREE 1-866-340-9281. 🙂

    This was passed along to me by Gregg from Pundit Review. I think it is as hilarious as it is eerily scary. Have fun.

    JUST SUPPOSE that at every ball game, graduation, prom, etc, someone who has had enough of stupid, anti historical court decisions had the guts to start reciting the Lord’s Prayer loudly, and others joined in, then more, until hundreds participated.

    And just suppose this spread all over our land until this became standard practice in hundreds of schools, then thousands, then tens of thousands.

    Just what would local school boards do? Expel half the student body? (They need their jobs and federal funding far too much to do that.) What would a Federal district court do? Order hundreds of nonviolent, decent minors jailed? Or thousands?

    Just what would the Supreme Court do about it – issue more edicts?

    What if millions decided the Supreme Court was out of its league and said, “So what?”

    Just suppose hundreds of brave school board members, local judges, prosecutors, and others, each in their own area of authority, refused to intervene, realizing that we have already tried it the other way, and the result was a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah of immorality and senseless violence.

    Just suppose this then spread next into classroom after classroom, And either a brave student or a brave teacher started the Lord’s Prayer (or Psalm 100, or a Bible reading, etc.) each morning, until hundreds of thousands stood up and did their part and stopped cowering before the destructive, God-hating secular attitudes of the pagan minority who parrot the media line.

    Just suppose every God-fearing Christian participated peacefully, nonviolently, but firmly and continually. Where would they get enough jails to hold us all? How would they prosecute hundreds of thousands?

    It is far more than the government can do to even stop the flow of illegal drugs, despite their best efforts, and overcrowded jails.

    What if hundreds of thousands stood up to the tyranny of the minority and demanded their freedom of religion back? They can’t build enough jails or courts to begin to deal with such a movement.

    During the Civil Rights battles of the 60’s, some of the black people decided they had had enough and stood up to the system. A few dozen here, a few hundred there, and eventually the whole country heard, and repented, and changed. Racial repression was an evil whose time was over.

    But now, there is another battle and the stakes are even higher. The future of all children, white, black, and otherwise, is at stake. No other country on earth allows a tiny minority of impractical anti-religious bigots to censor their people’s right to free religious expression. Even Russian public schools show videos of the life and teachings of Jesus now.

    We tend to get exactly the kind of government we deserve.

    If you make a time line or a graph, you will see that the exponential increase in public school violence, pregnancy, and foul language all started at exactly the time the Supreme Court threw prayer and Bible reading out of the schools. We told God we didn’t need Him, and the results speak for themselves.

    Just suppose hundreds of Christians passed this message on to all their friends, leaders and contacts.

    Just suppose hundreds of churches, organizations and ministries passed this message on to their constituencies with a request to reprint, repost and repeat it wherever possible.

    Just suppose you are a lighthouse. Once upon a time the Church was the moral conscience and spiritual lighthouse of the nation. Now, most congregations are impotent, pusillanimous minor-league social welfare agencies or mutual comfort societies with no impact on the world around their little enclave.

    Just suppose you don’t know what you should do.

    Just suppose that you take action, pass this on, or just simply read it and YOU DO NOTHING.

    Ah, that is the question, isn’t it?
