Still Waiting For New Computer

I am fortunate enough to have a brother who understands that if he doesn't allow me to use his computer while he sleeps, I'll go stir crazy. I made the purchase on the 9th, but it won't be here until the 18th (Wed). I'm dieing!

I can't write a long up-to-date, so I'll just say that I'm doing better than even I expected. After all, what else can I do? Boy, it sure does let one know how addicted to these machines one can get. Hmm...

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

One Of My Best Friends Died

I apologize for not being here for a while. See, my computer went to computer heaven. I am rather shook up. I started to buy a new computer immediately, but everytime I hit the 'Calculate' button, I received an error message.

That's easy enough, or so I thought. I'll just call the store. So I did. After about 6 calls to the store and 2 calls returned to me, we were no closer to getting me a new computer. *sigh*

The problem was in their bundling. None of their computers would accept the continue button. So, it wasn't just my imagination!

We finally sold it separately (I told them I was only going to pay for the bundle price). That worked. It should be on its way after tomorrow. Until then, I have to use my brother's computer AFTER he goes to sleep. For once in our lifetimes, we have the same sleeping hours!

Stay tuned. I have some very important information to share with you about the Farmers Relay Rally and the Citizens Initiative that we are going to get 1.2 million signatures for to get it on the ballot this November. Lots of info, and all of you can help. See ya then. God bless.

Why Govt Healthcare Is Bad

The year was 1982, the month was June, the day was the first. The night before I had such a headache and lost the feeling on my right side, but this had happened. I thought it would go away, so I went to sleep early instead of partying with everyone. After all, it was my graduation party.

When I awoke, the pain in my head was indescribable. It wasn't a headache anymore, my head was on fire from the inside and it felt as if my brain had swollen to the point it was going to pop out. I could no longer walk at all, so I crawled to the phone.

I could not talk so when the operator asked where I was, I was very proud of myself. I knew this answer! I was home. Where was home? Hell if I knew. I did not even know my name. I was having a stroke at the age of 22.

She must have found out where I was somehow, because the police and neurologists rushed to my home. When I saw them, my body finally succumbed. Probably due to relief. It took 9 months for me to learn how to speak in one word syllables again, and it took me a year and a half to relearn how to walk so it would appear I was not limping. Two and a half months later I was stricken with epilepsy.

There is so much more to be said, but you get the general idea. So what does this have to do with this health care bill Congress passed? A lot. You may not know this, but I have been on some sort of medical welfare ever since. I am forced to take medication for the rest of my life, so I have to see a specialist at least once a year.

I receive news all the time about which medications the govt will no longer cover, yet other people can still be offered. No problem, right? Just pay for it, right? Well, NO. It is against the law for me to pay for any medication already. What do you think I was trying to tell you? I just didn't want to go into detail.

This is my last plea. This is very important for you to know, for it will happen to you as well. I am afraid every time I open the news of which medicines they're going to stop funding, because I am allergic to all but one medication to control my epilepsy. What do I do when the day comes when they cancel that? What will you do when cancel yours?

They are going to have to reduce medication for everyone, because they cannot afford to care for everyone. So who will it be? Will we turn into a nation of people who pray it happens to someone else or will we be the kind of people who prevents this from happening in the first place?

It is up to you. I can no longer do this. I have done all of this by myself for a long time now, and I just cannot continue. You will find out why not in my next post. I've had it with this govt, and Saturday was the last straw. I have made up mind, but that's for the next post. Until then, someone please take over this blog!

I Let You Down

I was a little late this morning. Since I had to carry everying in my walker and packback, I was in such a hurry trying to get everything set-up that I couldn't find a few things until some people left. Someone even came all the way from South Bay, and I was unprepared. After all the time I spent preparing, I blew it. I apologize. It surely has been one of 'those' days. Thank you for coming.

Today I had to leave early. It was around noon. I also heard about the people that were told to get out of the congresscritters offices, Well I ran into a problem with some people who appear to be ACORN proto-types. I was told I was not allowed to protest on one of the corners because it was a business area, so I asked if anyone complained. She said it was her job to remove me before they did! I asked when was the last time she read the constitution, especially the FIRST AMENDMENT!

It was either leave or throw down. I wanted to show her that she couldn't push me around but the truth is, I'm only 5 feet tall and disabled. Back in the day it wouldn't have taken a second thought. In a way, I'm kind of glad it did. She probably could have stomped me. I wouldn't want to bring that kind of a message to our cause either.

I complained to her boss who gave me a different story (lie) about why I could not use my megaphone and protest there. First it was due to the businesses, then it was because people live in the area. So I guess people are only allowed to protest in the middle of the woods where no one will ever hear them? Bull.

I also questioned her boss as to whether the fact that I was the only one there at the time made a difference. She of course said no. Then I asked her if I were an illegal alien with hundreds of thousands of people with me if we would be having this same conversation? She lied right to my face and said yes. THAT is a lie. The police protect the illegals and arrest the citizens of my great country. I know. I've seen (heard of) it happening during (Karl) Marx Day (May 1st is known as May Day).

When they protest, they block all the traffic in downtown Los Angeles. No work can be done, business have to shut down whether they like it or not, and the illegals get special treatment. Maybe I can be defined as a minority or some protected group? Gosh, and I used to believe my citizenship MEANT something. I guess it is only special to me.

The few people who did show up today were very nice and took advantange of the opportinuty to go upstairs and voice their opinions to Congressmember Laura Richardson. For those of you who do not understand why there are no bands there and all that, it was a Tea Party in unity with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann to speak with our Congresscritter to kill the bill HR 3962.

There is another issue I would like to bring up just this once. I am disabled and I take the bus. If you want a big time party, bring it yourself! I cannot. I do not have the equipment and if I did, I have no way to transport it. I continue to ask for help, but there is none forthcoming.

I cannot say that about everyone, however. Many of you have asked how you can help, and many of you have actually helped. To you I am very grateful. On the 4th of July, Roxanna brought the helium for the balloons. There was also the ride to the Federal Building. That was the first time I have been able to make it there out of all the times I wanted to go. THANK YOU!

Your posters are also great. I love them. Keep them coming. Jamie, was it you who hooked us up with the speaker for the 4th of July? Whoever it was, thank you. You guys sure are awesome. I just wish I knew the words to motivate everyone and get you to know how very vital a time we are facing.

Pelosi thinks she has the votes. Otherwise I do not believe she would be calling for a vote on Saturday. Please keep those phone calls going! That is more important than what I did. I appreciate your efforts so much. Thank you.

Off-Topic (OT): Please say some prayers today for our service men and women and their families in Fort Hood. God help them and heal them. Comfort those who have lost their loved ones. It was a jihadis attack, and I knew it as soon as they would not give his name or race. Do they really think we're that stupid? Oh yeah, they came out right away without any investigation to say it was NOT a terrorist attack. No, I guess it was just one of those "man-caused disasters'. I am so disgusted with him and all those who think that way.

PS. If you have come to one of our Tea Parties and are not receiving a newletter, it is because I could not read your writing. Please send me your email address so I can fix this. Everyone who does receive my newsletters, please send me an email with the words "Yes, you have permission to add me" to our restricted google group in the subject line. It won't allow me to email you again using their Add Members, however I can add you directly by email.

If I can mail everyone the newsletter in one email, it would surely save me much time! You may also write any info and ideas you have, too. All you have to do is write an e-mail post (or any post, and copy/paste to email), then use the e-mail address of our private group in the To: area. This way it will post to our site and send an email to everyone. Cool, eh? God bless.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

For all the people who couldn't go to DC, we are having a Tea Party right outside of our Congresswoman's office. It is located between Pacific Ave and Pine Street on Broadway. (Downtown) We shall march up and down the block so that the people on the main streets (Pacific and Pine) may notice us.

Flags, posters, music, CD player/cassette/radio player. I'll bring my megaphone for everyone's use. If anyone knows of a speaker, please send me an e-mail.

Individually we shall go upstairs and express our views and concerns with the staffers. Be polite but firm. They are very nice in her office.

Also bring your own food and drink. Although being downtown, you should have no problem finding something to eat. Let's have some fun while we venture to save our nation from socialism!
