A GOP congress and a RINO President! Yeah, That's the Ticket! NOT!

Well, Rick Santorum is taking quite a bit of heat for saying that Romney would be no better a president than Obama. Then I keep hearing over and over again that ANYBODY on the Republican side would be better than Obama. REALLY? Sorry, I'm just not convinced. It is all a matter of trust and I absolutely do not trust Mitt Romney. After all he has taken just about every position on every issue possible. At least you can trust Barack Obama to be a radical socialist who wants to fundamentally change America. That's pretty sad to say that Obama is more trustworthy than Romney, but hell, it's true!

If Romney is elected, do we really know what we are going to get on January 21, 2013? No we don't. I heard one of the pundits on TV this morning hoping that the GOP would take control of both the House and the Senate. He went on to say that if that happened, Romney would be forced to govern as a conservative. REALLY? Seems like I painfully remember when the Republican congress and George W. Bush ushered in the the new Mediscare prescription drug entitlement. I also remember during the Bush presidency when the Republican controlled congress and the president tried their best to give amnesty to illegal invaders. It was only due to  the efforts of thousands of angry callers to their congressmen and senators that finally the dirty dogs in the legislature went slithering away, hiding under rocks in fear of losing their jobs.

So why should I believe that having another Republican controlled congress and a RINO president is going to produce different results? If GWB had acted like a conservative, he would have said that we couldn't afford another entitlement and that would have been the end of it. The amnesty issue would never have seen the light of day. It really is that simple.

So who do I trust? Romney? No way! Santorum? Well, not really, but I do have at least a reasonable expectation of what kind of president he would be. The only 2 people I trust completely are God and Sweet Wifey and they are not on the ballot. 

Of course the GOP establishment and the Fox News pundits are just about to pee all over themselves. They are declaring Romney the winner. Finally, at long last they are going to shove a useless RINO down our throats once again. One of them said this morning that conservatives are going to rally behind Romney. Well, I know at least one conservative that won't. I wish I could believe that Romney would be better than Obama, but I just can't. Looks like it is going to be the first time since 1972 that I have sat out a presidential election and I find that sad, very sad indeed.
Sadly I find that Mitt Romney meets NONE of the trust criteria above.

Is Peyton Manning Worth 98 Million???


Well the last I heard, Peyton Manning will be a Denver Bronco. As I expected, there was a lot of whining and moaning on Facebook from Titan fans. One of them was moaning about him making 98 million dollars. I didn’t read up on it so I don’t know if that was the amount but this particular person was really stressed over this, saying that nobody was worth that much. I can’t help but wonder if she would have felt the same if Peyton had become a Titan.

I personally have no problem with Peyton or any quarterback making that kind of money. If he can get it, more power to him. If I along with a handful of others was capable of performing some really remarkable task and there was a huge market for it, could I make that kind of money? Sure could. There are only a handful of people in the whole world who can do what Manning does and he may arguably be the best that has ever played. To be able to take a snap, survey the field for open receivers, deliver an accurate throw 20, 30, or 40 yards down the field, in a period of 2 to 3 seconds while well over 1000 pounds of sweaty, mean, ugly, defensive linemen are charging at you and trying to take your head off is quite a remarkable task.

The NFL is big money and big business. Think of all the sponsors that bring you the weekly games. They have products to sell. They want lots of people watching the games. They want people to be excited. What creates more excitement than one of the Manning brothers, a Drew Brees, an Aaron Rogers, or a Tom Brady?

Are these guys worth it? Perhaps not to the average individual, but to the giant business machine that is the NFL and sports TV, you bet they are.

As I told my disgruntled Facebook friend, it’s just CAPITALISM, pure and simple.
Thanks for the spending money, fellas

Well, it was Fun While it Lasted

Well, my so called liberal friend on Facebook, Doug, has started deleting my comments. He said he was going to do this in lieu of blocking or unfriending me. Mighty big of him doncha think? Of course remember that Doug is the one that friended me in the first place.

Oh well, I knew it couldn't last. Liberals like Doug can't defend their positions and they get very frustrated when confronted with common sense and the truth. So I told Doug I wouldn't be sending him anymore comments. There is no point if he's just going to delete them.

I do however have ways of still throwing darts at him and my mission in life is to see how long it will take him to finally block me once and for all.

Life is good.

Critical Medicines in Short Supply


Essential medicines that we have used in the hospital for many years have suddenly fallen into short supply. Here are just a few of the drugs that we have little or none of:

Morphine, a narcotic analgesic. It has many uses, from pain control and positive hemodynamic influences in heart attacks to management of chronic and terminal pain conditions. Here at our hospital we have very little of it with no hope of getting more. We have terminally ill patients on constant infusion pumps. When we run out we simply may not have effective alternatives to give them.

Lidocaine, an anesthetic drug. We use it here to provide local anesthesia for minor surgical proceedures and wound repair. It is also used by the nurses to dilute other drugs for intramuscular injection to make shots much less painful. Additionally it is used to treat certain kinds of cardiac arrhythmias. There are alternatives to lidocaine, but these are in short supply too.

Etomidate is a drug we use here and on the ambulances to provide sedation for intubating patients who cannot protect their airway. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY and there is no hope of getting more. Intubation can mean the difference between life and death.

Some important antibiotics that have fallen in short supply are, Gentamicin, Vancomycin, Levaquin, Ampicillin sulbactam, and Azithromycin. Depending on the infection, substitutes for these drugs may not be appropriate.

There are many, many other important drugs which are depleted or in critically short supply.

Anyone want to take a guess why these shortages exist?

If you answered GOVERNMENT you guessed right.

According our friendly pharmacist, the federal gubment has imposed many new regulations on drug companies. Many of the manufacturers for reasons of cost have simply been unable to comply with these new regulations and have suspended operations. The remaining companies have been unable to keep up with demand and the shortages have suddenly occurred. I am surprised I have not heard anything about this on the news, but I guess maybe the lame stream media may be at work protecting the Obama administration from yet another fiasco due to the unintended consequences.

All I can tell you boys and girls is that we find ourselves in a critical situation. A letter or call to your congressman and senators might not be a bad idea.

The Faces of Racism

Clarence Thomas, a black man from humble beginnings. He rose by his own intellect and hard work to sit as an associate justice on the highest court in the land. He is on my list of most admired characters in the US.
Marco Rubio, Hispanic, Republican senator from Florida. This man is the epitome of conservatism. Like Ronald Reagan, you can hear his love for America in his voice. This man should be president one day.
Herman Cain, black, former Republican presidential candidate. He's another man from humble beginnings who not by handouts, but by hard work and intelligence worked his way up to be a successful businessman. I supported him proudly during his presidential run and I would support him again.
Bobby Jindal, Indian American, and current governor of Louisiana. He's a solid conservative and a genuinely decent man. He's another one that should be president one day.
 Col. Allen West, black, Republican congressman from Florida. He served with distinction in the military. He is conservative and typifies all that is right with America. He's yet another I could wholeheartedly support for president.
Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States.
1. Believes algae and tire pressure is the solution to our energy woes.
2. Blocked the Keystone pipeline in the face of high gas prices and unemployment.
3. Supports green energy projects that do not work and cost taxpayers money.
4. Supports partial birth abortion.
5. Apologizes for America in front of the rest of the world.
6. Associated with terrorists as he cultivated his young political career.
7. Worshiped at the church of a hateful, racist, black supremacist preacher for 20 years.
8. Has accumulated more debt than all the presidents before him combined.
Shall I go on?
Did I mention he was black?
This man never should have been and should not continue to be president.
For this many of the looney Facebook liberals call me a racist.
It just doesn't make sense, does it?

Riding High

Spring is here and sweet Wifey and I rode the 2 wheeler yesterday down to Pickwick Dam and Shiloh National Military Park. We tooled on up to Jackson and got a bite at the Red Robin. We logged about 170 miles.

Today we scouted around all over western middle TN. today. The highlight of the trip was a ride up the Natchez Trace Parkway. It was absolutely beautiful. Of course, equally beautiful was my hot biker chick. It just doesn't get any better than this folks! 240 total miles today!
Sexy biker chick.....woo hoo!
The GROUCH taking a break.
Such an EVIL racist!

Obama's Preacher

After my last post I just had to remind y'all about Obama's preacher. There is probably a lot of this junk going on in the church of Lennie the liberal.

Almost nauseating isn't it?

Lennie, the Looney Facebook Liberal

Yesterday I made a comment concerning a pro Obama Facebook post. I said, "What a CROCK....".

I was immediately accosted by some liberal named Lennie with the following (by the way, Berford Garp is my Facebook name):

@Berford what do you mean a crock. You dont even know the man. It seems the game is to believe all the lies President Obama is refuting above. If Barack were any of these above or was not from United States He would not have been allowed to run for President. I wish some these this is a crock would travel to Europe and ask a panel of Socialists to define Socialism. Why does a man be accused of being a Socialist because after 21 straight years of Tax cuts President Obama asks the Affluent and The Rich to pay for 2 Wars they wanted and didnt pay for, for the Drug Prescription Plan for Seniors, for No Child Left Behind NON OF THESE PROGRAMS PRESIDENT BUSH PAID FOR Berford Garp! Now is that a crock. President George W. Bush never raised taxes once. These bullet points could contents of a great book.

To this I simply responded, "Lennie.........Obama is a CROCK."

And this followed:

@Hey Berford WHY DO THE RICH THE AFFLUENT AND REPUBLICAN TEA PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING FOR NOTHING?????????? LIKE A DEAD BEAT AND PROFIT OFF IT AND WONT SEND YOU KID THE WAR. THE REPUBLICAN MEMBERS VOTED FOR THE WAR IN IRAQ BUT REFUSED TO RAISE TAX REVENUE FOR THE WAR AND REFUSED TO SEND THEIR KID TO THE WAR BUT THEY WILL SEND THOSE YOUNG PEOPLE WHOSE PARENTS ARE PAYING A GREATER PERCENTAGE OF TAXES THAN THOSE WHO WONT PAY THE WAR AND WONT SEND THEIR KID TO THE WAR SOUNDS LIKE THE WHAT A CROCK PEOPLE ARE WHAT A HYPOCRITES I KNOW ONE THING ALL THESE REPUBLICAN TEA PEOPLE CAN HANG UP THE PATRIOTISM THEY HAVE SHOWN THEIR FETAL BUTT AND BEEN A DISGRACE THEY WAY WHITE TEA REPUBLICANS HAVE ACTED TOWARD THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS A SHAME A CROCK AND THESE TREASONESS BUMS NEED TO THROWN OUT AND MAKE UNCLE TOM HERMAN CAIN THEIR CHIEF SLAVE THE NEW CONFEDERACY THEN WIN THESE LOOSE THIS TIME THIS NATION NEEDS TO PUT THE TEA PARTY ON A RESERVATION SENSE THEY DONT WANT TO PAY TAXES OR THEY SHOULD GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO VOTE AND LET CONVICTED FELONS WHO WORK HARD AND KNOW HOW TO ACT AND HAVE HOME TRAINING WHO PAY TAXES VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!11

REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO VOTED FOR THAT ILLEGAL WAR DIDNOT RAISE REVENUE FOR THE WAR IN IRAQ AND THAT IS A FIRST IN HISTORY AND WILL NOT SEND THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER TO THE WAR BUT THEY CAN ACT LIKE A DISGRACE TOWARD OUR PRESIDENT I SAY SHIP THE BUMS OUT

At this point, I let Lennie know that I was having great difficulty following his ALL CAPS rambling and run-on sentences, intentionally insulting his intelligence, mind you. I also let him know that I WAS NOT a Republican. This really blows their minds. Notice the racist comments made against "white tea Republicans" and Herman Cain. Also, did you catch the part about putting white tea Republicans on reservations and not letting them vote? Of course he thinks it would be just fine to let convicted felons vote. WOW!

This followed:

Well you are entitled to your opinion but it is biased unfounded unfair ridiculous judgement on The President of The United States. Is this just a pattern of behavoir and belief about politicians and politics and general.
I then responded with this, "Yes, Lennie, I am entitled to my opinion. Obama was born in Kenya. He was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia. He is the sorriest excuse for a president in history. He is a socialist and completely incompetent. He worships at the racist church of Jeremiah Wright. He associates with terrorists such as Bill Ayers. Yes, I am entitled to my opinion. Obama and everything he stands for is a CROCK."

I also sent him HERE to read all about his blessed Obama.

This followed and it really gets good:

Yes Berford The President of The United States should suit you for slander. You have not evidence for you statements. You are what is wrong in this nation. You should get out of this nation. I want you to form the Confederacy again I want to go to war one more time. You are a liar you a child of The devil and the works of your father you will do He satan was a liar from the beginning and satan your father abode not in the truth. Satan means diablos slanderer and thats what you do and who you are. You of your father the Devil

You have no evidence for all the statements you have made and they are highly offensive and I reported you for your slander to Facebook

Barack Obama works 25 Hours 8 Days a week 13 months out of the year as The President of The United States and it is a shame above all shames that some one and The Tea Party have people within its ranks that are so abusive so disrespectful so biased so harassing and full of lies against The President whom he doesnt know and does not have any evidence for the statements he just made. People like Beford are protected by and outstanding accomplished brilliant dedicated human being namely Barack Hussein Obama who is giving it all he has to give for this nation President Obama is one of the most intelligent and down to Earth Sincere men to become President of The United States. Berford's attitude and behavior causes me to examine my attitude and behavior and the statements I have made against President George W. Bush. I have done my research and can back up And much of the information I have used as proof has been declassified. But what I have said against President Bush but I think I am going to reserve my criticism and be careful. The last person I want to become is Berford

By this time Lennie had blocked me and he could see me no more, however, due to my top secret hacking techniques I acquired while working for the CIA, I was still able to see everything he said. Many liberals on Facebook have blocked me. The list is long and distinguished. I did a little investigating and found out that Lennie is a BLACK PREACHER from Atlanta, Georgia. I can imagine his heartfelt message of Christian love that goes on in his church every Sunday and I am sure he was thrilled when I brought up Jeremiah Wright. I have a feeling they are cut from the same cloth.

It is obvious to me that Lennie, as many lunatic liberals both black and white, voted for Obama for one reason and one reason only.......BECAUSE HE IS BLACK. Now that they see he is turning out to be probably the worst president in US history, they are extremely ashamed, and no doubt try to cover their shame with extreme anger.

Lennie is also a hate filled racist, much like Jeremiah Wright. The only thing Herman Cain ever did was pull himself up by his boot straps and become a huge success without a handout from the glorious federal gubment. Racist liberals like Lennie just hate this.

Oh well, I guess my father, the devil and I will just keep on looking for more Facebook liberals to annoy.

Arsenal

Please check out a new book authored by my Sweet Wifey's friend, Tammy Swofford. The book, "ARSENAL", is available for purchase now at Createspace.com (https://www.createspace.com/3788103).


From the back cover:

Within the Muslim Brotherhood is a secretive and flanking Shura Council. This small and highly skilled handful of men function as trustees of a pouch which contains the hair of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).  The actual treasure is carefully protected by the Sufi masters. When an Israeli intelligence officer inadvertently picks up a thread of intelligence, careers will be destroyed and lives will be lost.  Enter the world of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is a vibrant geopolitical space which supports an arsenal of strategic thought.  The men have earned their place in history. And Israel, desperately seeks their prize.

Go HERE to find out more about "Arsenal".

So You Want to Vote for Barack Obama?

You mean the guy that wants to find ways to lower gas prices by studying algae and inflating our tires, instead of drilling for oil on our own land?

You mean the guy that voted to ban all handguns in the state of Illinois?

You mean the guy that appointed an advocate for vivid, graphic homosexual education in elementary schools to the position of "safe schools czar"?

You mean the guy that said sex education for kindergartners is "the right thing to do"?

You mean the guy that apologized to infuriated Afghan Muslims for Q'uran burnings after they murdered US troops? (and before they murdered more US troops.)

You mean the guy that has added more debt to the United States in 3 years than all other US presidents from Washington to Bush jr. combined?

You mean the guy that adamantly supports the abhorrent practice of partial birth abortion?

Please read the rest of this great post HERE.....

Afghanistan - Time to Leave

Karzai wants us out of Afghanistan. Good! I say let's pack up and leave. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm sick and tired of the manufactured outrage over the accidental burning of a few Korans. I'm sick and tired of the manufactured outrage over the fact that the alleged massacre soldier was moved to Kuwait. I'm sick and tired of spending American blood and treasure on some hell hole full of tribal Muslims who all hate us and are content to live in the 7th century.

I say goodbye and good riddance. If there are some troublesome Taliban remaining, then let's use up a few of our nukes on them. Obama wants to get rid of them anyway. Yes, turn the place into glass and let it glow in the dark for 1000 years. It would not hurt my feelings one damned bit.

Manning Mania in Tennessee

Tennessee Titans fans are all in a dither over the prospect of acquiring Peyton Manning as quarterback for the team....well, not all Titans fans are in a dither.

As talks between the 13 year veteran and the Titans continue, I am not sure it is a gamble I would be willing to make. After all he has been at it for 13 years, a long time for an NFL QB and he's 36 years old. I am not convinced he will be able to continue after his neck injury and surgeries, in fact I think Peyton is taking a big risk by continuing to play, but alas, they did not ask for my opinion.

The Titans have two pretty good QBs already in the form of Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker. In my humble opinion the smart play would be to save the Manning money and concentrate on cultivating Locker for the future. Spending money on firming up the offensive line and wide receiver corps would be my strategy.

Now don't get me wrong. If Manning is the man and is able to play at his usual level, I'll be delighted. I still have worries about the offensive line being able to protect him in the manner he is used to. Also he had a great variety of weapons when he was with the Colts. He can throw great passes all day long, but if the guy on the other end is going to drop most of them, then things are not going to go well. Worries, worries, worries.

I smiled as I watch one of my Facebook friends swoon over Manning and the days when he played at the University of Tennessee. I pointed out to her that fond memories of the big orange and Rocky Top were not going to do a single thing to help the Titans score touchdowns. It should be interesting.

Facebook Friending Leads to Arrest

Hey, dig THIS. One woman was interested in "friending" another on Facebook when she found a picture of her husband with this woman and THEIR WEDDING CAKE. Turns out the dude is still married to the first woman. Alan L. O'Neill, a corrections officer, was arrested on charges of bigamy.......OOPS!

Regardless of your Politics, You Gotta Love Chris Christie

Chris Christie is not a conservative and I probably could not support him, but dang, he's not afraid to go toe to toe with idiots on the public stage.

Mitt Romney Flops Again - Reverses Stance on Minimum Wage

I would have missed this had it not been for some looney Facebook liberals complaining about it. Evidently Mitt Romney has reversed the position he took back last January when he said he would be in favor of raising the minimum wage. According to this article, Romney flip flopped on the issue in the run up to super Tuesday due to conservative outcry.
But then he turns around in the next sentence and says he thinks it's OK to let the minimum wage rise along with the consumer price index.......HUH? This guy is unbelievable. He finds the ability to take both positions on the issue at the same time. Who know what he really believes? Whatever he believes he doesn't sound very much like a "severe conservative".

The looney Facebook liberals were upset with him of course because they want the minimum wage raised. I'm upset with him because he's faking his conservatism. Funny how we're both mad at the same guy for completely different reasons.

Yet, the lame stream media, the Fox News pundits, and the Republican establishment keep pushing this guy upon us. I've already said if Romney is the candidate, I'll sit the general election out and each day it seems Romney gives me one more reason NOT to change my mind.

Picking on Rush Limbaugh is Not a Good Idea

I just had to laugh. Rush called Sandra Fluke a slut. The left was OUTRAGED! Yeah, right. Then we find out that Fluke's real interest is trying to get YOU to pay for sex change operations.

Several of Rush's sponsors pulled their ads from his show. Carbonite stock has tanked. Sleep Train has tried to come back to Rush with their tails between their legs. Rush won't have them back. Rush has said the lost advertisers will be replaced. Indeed, I'll betcha there are companies chomping at the bit to advertise their products on his show.

You'd think these people would know better than to jump into the pool with liberal lunatics. Rush has the number one radio talk show in the nation. Lots of people from all political persuasions LISTEN to him and the advertisements. Rush has the big mouthpiece.

I would like to have seen the looks on the faces of the Sleep Train people when El Rushbo turned them down. I love it, I love it, I love it!

Hat tip to Sweet Wifey for sending me this story.

Can Obama Blame Republicans for High Gas Prices?

While Obama refuses to build the Keystone pipeline and refuses to lift the moratorium on gulf drilling and tells us about the great benefits of electric cars, tire pressures, and algae, gas prices continue to rise. Today I see a story that says 77 percent of those voting in super Tuesday states said that gasoline prices were an important factor in their vote.
This sounds like bad news for the messiah. I don't see him doing anything that will result in lower prices. Doncha remember he was pleased to see gas prices go up, saying it was a sign of economic recovery? Somehow he's going to have to figure out a way to make it look like Republicans are to blame for the increase. Mark my words. The lame stream media will help him figure out a way to make this seem plausible. It will all come down to how many numbskulls out there believe yet another one of his lies.

Medicare Cuts Have Reached Critical Levels

Hat tip - Jackie Hamilton

Where Will He Go from Here?

I just read that Peyton Manning will be leaving the Indianapolis Colts. Of course he missed all of last season after surgery for a neck injury that caused weakness in his throwing arm.

Where is he going to go? I would be hesitant to have him on my team. It would be a huge gamble to pay him the big bucks and have the neck injury flare up once again.

He certainly has nothing to prove. What about a coaching job, Peyton? It would be a helluva lot safer.

Planning Ahead

Just planning ahead in case Obama wins again! Ya'All better think before ya' vote in 2012 !!!!
Hat tip- Dr. Tim Ashmore.

 Do You Remember a Time When Decisions were made by going...
'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, 'Do Over!'?

'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest?
Catching The Fireflies Could Happily Occupy An Entire Evening?
It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'... 
Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a Slingshot?
Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials for action figures?
'Oly-oly-oxen-free' made perfect sense?
Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?
The Worst Embarrassment was being picked last for a team?
War was a card game?
Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?
Taking drugs meant orange flavored chewable aspirin?
Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?

If you can remember most or all of these, Then You Have Lived!!!!!!!

And remember, my friends, there is a big difference between existing and LIVING! Never take a single day for granted. You never know which day may be your last.
