Well, well the Tea Party folk who hope on the buses paid for by Special Interest money will be forced to stay home when the new Republican cut Medicaid funding that pays for their loved one's nursing home care.It seems that more middle and lowed middle class white folk utilize nursing home care for their elderly that minorities.Blacks and Hispanics keep their loved ones in the home and care for them.What a suprise,suprise.Some of these new folk seemed to have believed there were all young folk on Medicaid using this service but as it turns out they spend less money than the older group. Also did you see the plan to stop funding favorite project spending for Congress people is only two years.These fools think people will not see through this? What's so bad,they think this will hurt President Obama being reelected in 2012.Lee Atwater is turning over in his grave I wonder who the planner is for Republicans 2012. If Rick Perry and Sara Palin or all they have may God help them.People who take Sara Palin serious are plain haters of all things and are happy to have a ding bat to follow.Rick Perry has gotten so drunk on power he is willing to mislead this State into deep water,not following EPA rules,turning down education money and making very silly statements nationally has Texas looking like a fool all over the Country.
I spent Election Day in beautiful Bermuda. First time on the Island and it was simply beautiful. All the natural flowers, beautiful people doing all sorts of work. I did not realize that the Country was mostly Black and race and color does not seem to matter. Black’s White’s all over the place, working, smiling just living life other races present and peaceful. New governments Officers being installed were 85% people of color in the statements written about the outgoing Officers it was noted the former Prime Minister had been a race batting man people were tired of his using race as the base of all arguments much like some of our Official who have held office to long. The mane was voted out of office. The cab drivers were very polite clean and spoke English; my driver was the Mayor of St.George Parish very delightful man. Mayor by day taxi driver by night He was there to pick me up for my return trip at 6 AM the fourth day. We had so much fun and conversation was great all about policy what new ideas he had for New Year. I was so excited reading his name in daily paper recognized him as someone I knew. Unlike Dallas elected Officials over there don’t take themselves so serious and think election appoint them as Queens and Kings of the universe. The daily news was a joy to read there were real stories, human interest stories, and crime stats but it was not a liberal vs. conservative paper both sides were present but neither overshadowed the other. Paper respected its total readership and it was the only paper in town. My visit was such a joy that if I were a little younger and did not need transplant follow up at the best place in town, Dallas Transplant Institute I might move. I sure will visit as often as I can just for the political peace of mind.
November 16, 2010 As a DFW airport board member I find it puzzling that so many people object to TSA screenings. First the full body scanner only shows the structural outline of the body, it does not picture your body parts as in a picture or show body organs in living color. The scan is much like taking a medical scan and people have no objection to medical personnel looking at those scans and public safety is not involved. There are many substances that can cause damage to an airplane that are not detectable by metal detection. Metal detection is just that “metal” detect. I know for a fact people tape drugs and other substances around their legs, waist or any other part of the body that are not detected by detector ,the scan will show any object not a part of the body structure. I know of cases where Pilots have carried money belts around their waist one containing as much $35,000.00 in cash. Why would a Pilot fly with that amount of undeclared money in a belt? The scan is the only way to detect an object on a person’s body, pat down will also allow Officers to feel any object. If a person has nothing to hide what is the problem? I would rather be alive than dead.
