By The People

There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Out of Control Health Care

I am so angry at the despicable U.S. health care system. I cannot get past 
the concept that Cancer is incurable. But what I really have a problem 
with is the fact that when there are no more "conventional" treatments 
that remain financially self-serving "viable", instead of seeking out 
alternative or unconventional protocols, the health care system  throws 
up their hands and decides the patient has no real rights to fight for 
life and only a "comfortable and pain free" final days is in order.

Let me assure you that my wife is neither pain free or comfortable with 
the level of care she is receiving. This weekend at home was her most 
comfortable since returning from the hospital and hospice. The handling 
of her by aides and nurses that appear to be competely devoid of proper 
medical procedure or training is at best criminal and at the worst 
criminally inhumane. The drugs prescribed for her by her family doctor 
and administered by hospice care are all for assisting the body to shut 
down. There seems to an exception in the laws that seems to allow for
no other action but planned execution.

It took me more than two weeks to even get to speak to her primary care 
physician, and then only under threat of reporting him to the state 
medical board. He refused to participate in any alternative treatments 
that were not AMA/FDA approved which is the true nemesis of good health 
in the United States. When I pointed out the fact that he misdiagnosed 
her lung cancer as spinal arthritis and failed to find lung tumors and 
cancerous tumors in her brain, he remained silent.

Many have been supporting me from afar, I thank them and those that are 
knowledgeable in such matters tell me to get a lawyer. (incorrect issue), 
What I really want is a compassionate doctor knowledgeable with disease; 
and the techniques and methodologies, which reduce disease. When the health 
care system deems a human being is no longer viable, Law suits will 
not heal anything, and that is all I care about. I want to save my wife's 
life and all those in the health care business are telling me that a proper
diagnosis wasn't made early enough and its too late. 

Who gets to make the choice of whether it is to late to do anything?  I 
thought it was up to her and me; since, she communicated that she wanted 
to fight for life, no matter what.

I plan on making the issues of the deplorably poor educational institutions 
teaching outmoded, incorrect medical science supported by a never ending 
revolving door between the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, and the medical
profession  a priority in my commentaries and discussions. I will raise awareness, 
I will educate lay persons, and I will lobby the state and federal governments to
look beyond the AMA, FDA approved methods, many of which are 50 years or 
more out of date, or simply have been proven incorrect. 

I will not stop until the victims of cancer and other diseases  in the United States 
are allowed to receive proper efficacious medical treatment. Treatments that give 
patients better than a fighting chance for life.

Health Care:Changes for Worst

I haven't been posting for a while due to the devastating developments in my personal life. My wife, my friend and partner in life was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer that has metastasized into tumors in her spine and brain. Because of her advanced condition, there is nothing that conventional oncology can do. She came home to me on Thursday July 17, and the prognosis was that she probably would not last the weekend. But I tried a few alternatives that seems to be working, although the results are minuscule, she is still with me today.

So I would like to discuss the challenges I face, not from the cancer, but from a health care system that has already pronounced her dead and encouraging me to let her go. Truth be known, I have been grieving now for two weeks, and have made peace with that. But she wants me to continue to fight for her. I explained that she will still suffer from the pain, but she insists that I have to help her get better so she and I can renew our vows next June for our 25th Anniversary.

All ofthe medications that were prescribed by her primary care doctor are being administered via hospice service. I explained before signing papers that she wants to fight the cancer and they agreed not to interfere with that, but cannot (by law) participate in anything that the doctor does not direct. But while they made promises to keep her comfortable, they have done just the opposite, pushing and rolling her like a potato sack and after she is in agony from their rough handling, they load her up with drugs.

I am using a cancer therapy that I discovered through research and friends advice. I am also working frantically to rebuild her immune system which has been decimated by the drug HUMIRA. Just today I discover that one of the drugs she is taking for inflammation is also an auto-immune suppressant. The excuse is that it is necessary for her comfort, but it agitates her so much that we are both up most of the night.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no Constitutional law that allows anyone in health care to choose when someone needs to die. It has always been my understanding that health care is about "caring" for one's health, not destroying it. From the beginning of this ordeal, it has been one medical miscue after another. If anyone out there knows the law well enough to advise me on this, please do contact me. While I am focused on saving my bride's life, I do want to hold accountable those who did not perform enough preliminary tests before giving her immune-suppressants, and the misdiagnosis of lung cancer as spinal arthritis.

Nullifying Federal Mandates

"When a state 'nullifies' a federal Law, it is proclaiming that the in law in question is void and inoperative, or 'non-effective' within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as the state is concerned."

This is the opening paragraph of a tri-fold 'brochure' that is available through the Tenth Amendment Center, "a national 'think tank' that works to preserve and protect the principles of strictly limited government through information, education, and activism."

The principles of nullifying federal laws has precedence in the Kentucky Resolution of 1798 in which Jefferson wrote, "The several states composing the United States of America are not united on the principles of unlimited submission to their general government, He states further that, "where the powers are assumed (by the federal or general government) which have NOT been delegated, a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy."

Madison also asserted in his Virginia Resolution of 1798, that the core premise of all nullification laws- that State governments not only have the right to resist unconstitutional Federal acts, but so that liberty may be protected they are "duty bound to interpose" or stand between the Federal government and the people of their state.

Without digressing into Constitutional review of Amendments made since the time of these resolutions of nullification, it is apparent that the citizens elect representation in their state legislative bodies as well as Federal, and with the exception of the direct election of the Senate, which was once the province of those State Legislative bodies along with the State Governor, selected or appointed Senators to represent the state, and with that we lost an essential balance of power that enabled the State and the people equal representation in the Federal houses.

It was more difficult then for the Federal government to enact laws that were contrary to the wishes and best interests of the State and the citizens of those states. We must correct that "flaw' amended to the Constitution.

I support the nullification of the Federal Reserve Act, as it removes the explicit responsibility of the monetary system from Congress and puts the nations wealth into the hands of private banks. It was designed as it was to prevent private banks from obtaining control of  the nations treasury and now we have debts owed to those secret member banks that generations to come will have to pay down. But the reality is that it can never be paid off completely because the Federal government must literally buy money at a premium from the Fed! Hello out there America! Are you awake yet?

Point your favorite browser toward the Tenth Amendment Center's website and learn about why we have the deficits we do, the sooner the better. This is NOT about party politics, and it is not about the current administration and its liberal support in Congress. This is about freedom and slavery.

Just because there is no taskmaster with a bullwhip standing behind you, as more and more individual rights and liberty are taken in the name of "protecting you" we all become that much closer to shackled slaves. We are being shackled to a "National ID" and now a national medical system. The government has been stepping in to "bailout" banks and businesses, and when they do, they hire government workers (they're the ones who depend on our taxes for their wages) to administer the bailout plan which also means that there is government control of  the business.

I do not not how long it will take before we are left with no rights. It has been a very slow and deliberate process that begun before the ink was dry on the Constitution itself, and may even have roots in the Articles of Confederation. I defer to the many expert conspiracy theorists who have written books and produced documentaries on those subjects. I do not make royalties on my blogging so I do not solicit their wares. There are so many places online where one can gather good information, that I see no pint in pointing someone to a particular author or activist.

Americans really need to learn that "Uncle Sam" is not all that powerful, only that we allow it to be powerful by being weak! Stand up for your freedoms or you will lose them. The protectors of liberty are you and me.

Did Income Taxes Factor Into LeBron’s Decision?

I can hear every Cavalier fan screaming foul, but before they settle their sights on LeBron as  the "defector" they need to look at the reasons why he made the move in the first place. What it boils down to is simply a matter of economics. Florida does not have a state income tax so Mr. James will get to keep about one million more dollars per year than anywhere else he may have gone.

State income taxes are an additional burden that is slowing economic recovery. Raising income taxes is never a good idea, even in a robust economy, simply because it take money out of circulation. If the government has it, the people don't and hence neither do the retailers or banks. And the government don't have it either because right after they collect it, it gets handed over to the Federal Reserve System to pay down the interest on the debt.

But instead of reducing the tax burden on its citizens, the Obama Administration and the Democratic socialists in Washington are going to tax you on those medical benefits that you receive (if you are fortunate to have employer-paid medical coverage) by including the employer's contribution as part of your income.

So how is that change working for you now? While the headlines are filled with LeBron James' defection to Miami, Lindsay Lohan's incarceration, and of course the devastating oil leak off the Gulf coast, Washington has been hard at work passing legislation that all or in part will deny the citizens more civil liberties and require more rights given up for the sake of what? Reducing the costs of medical care? How? By raising more taxes on what you earn?

I have to get back to this issue again, but I am open to suggestions as to what we can do to stop the ebb of rights and the destruction of the United States from within. And I am still not convinced that Barak Hussein Obama has Constitution authorization to hold the office of President of the United States.

But that is a minor problem in all the problems we now face and must overcome to remain a sovereign nation.

The Cowboy Solution to save Gasoline

I received an email yesterday from a very good friend of mine, who is in addition to being a very patriotic American, is a man with common sense and ethics. He also possesses a wonderful sense of humor.

OBAMA wants
us to cut the amount of gasoline we use.....

best way to stop using so
much Gasoline is to
deport 20 million
illegal immigrants!

would be 20 million less people
using our gas.

The price
of gas would come down.....
Bring our troops
home from Afghanistan to
guard the borders....

they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the

Border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Afghanistan ....


him if he wants to come to AMERICA then he must serve a tour in OUR military....

him a soldier's pay while he's there
and tax him on it......

his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country.....

will also be registered to be taxed and
be a legal resident.....

option will probably deter illegal
immigration and provide a
solution for the troops in
and the aliens trying
to make a better life for themselves....

they refuse to serve, ship them to
Afghanistan anyway, without the
canteen, rifle or ammo.....

Problem solved.....

you think this is a good solution to both the problems,share it
with your friends.
