A Threat of DEATH for Michelle Obama!

Kristy Lee Roshia, 35, was charged this past Saturday with threatening to kill/blow up Michelle Obama. She was apprehended on Tuesday and is being held without bail.

Now get this the woman has a record of such threats since 2004! Just what gives here?! This type of stuff just infuriates me to no end. How is it that someone of this obviously grossly scared mental capacity be allowed to walk the streets with such a record of various threats  to the  Secret Service, police, and the Marines.

To make matters worse the Honolulu public defenders office received a message of the same caliber.  Now we don’t know when the threat came but there was no response of any kind on behalf of the public defenders office for the welfare of its citizens or our CIC.  So now we know, that if they aren’t doing anything about defending the public then heck do you think they are going to defend the President and his family while they are spending holiday time in Honolulu?

Uhh,  just burns my butt to a crisp.

Needless to say I am sure that security will be heightened as it should be for the Obama’s.  Protect and serve, people!

This lady obviously has mental issues and needs help majorly. However shame  shame on authorities for letting such a blatant known situation go unchecked since 2004! Haven’t we had enough of that already, 911 comes to my mind.

Here’s the FULL STORY

Oh-Bama Pay Attention Please!!!

Oh-Bama Pay Attention!!!

As our President is pushing hard to get the Health Care Reform Act passed in Congress and with a new addition being added to it a governmental insurance option. That’s option folks and that means you have the option to take it or leave it! Okay get back on track there kiddo.

I am sure that he is aware of what is going on with Medicare he has already put somethings in place in the Health Care Reform Act pertaining to Medicare.  He wants to cap payments for health services that are paid out to various health care venues and he is has stipulated placing medical records on computer and there are others. This is a start, well last night I viewed this 60 Minute report about Medicare Fraud.

Now we know that there is such a beast and he does too but I just got more angry as I heard this convict (who has 12yrs time to serve) talk about how he did it and laugh about it. Then brag about the gas powered prosthetic limbs he billed Medicare for at the cost of $50,000 each. OMG!!!

We are paying for this from our paychecks people! You know that line among many of deductions from our paycheck next to the biggie the Federal Income Tax, geesh! FICA-Medicare is removed it’s the next biggest deduction.  So if you really want to get upset as I did think of it this way we are paying someone to rip us off! 😦

Here’s a true medicare fraud story for ya. A person works in an ophthalmologist office about almost 20 years ago (yep 20 years this is nothing new) found out that visual screenings (for ages 50+ yrs) were being fudged to reflect that patients were seeing worse than they really were.

Watch CBS News Videos Online

Why was this done to bill Medicare for a trip out the homes, nursing homes, convalescent homes etc and bill Medicare a full ophthalmology eye exam (which costs more than an optometrist’s eye exam by at least double).  Remember most of these patients were seeing 20/20 by the way that is normal vision or maybe the line above normal which is still great for a patient of that age.

Coming from the Hippocratic oath of , “Do no harm, I would say that wasn’t taken seriously. Most of these patient’s vision was normal and oh they weren’t complaining about vision difficulties.  So you see this is not a new phenomenon and it has been going on for years bilking the system, know what I mean?

Ain’t that a kick in the head and yes it burns my butt to a crisp.  So I know President Obama is aware of this just not sure of the depth yet.

However at last count of  $60 Billion dollars in fraudulent claims I would say let’s get BUSY QUICKLY!!!

Oh no the swine!

If you haven’t heard yet it’s time you did and prepared yourself to protect you and your family.

Video below from April 24th see further down for update on this virus.

The swine flu is stretching across countries just as fast as the air we breathe can blow.  The news is all the buzz about this and I think we really need to pay attention. As I woke up this morning to look at the news a school in Elyria, Ohio has been closed due to the swine flu. A 23 month old toddler has died from the swine flu in Texas and before it gets better the CDC is saying it is going to get worst with more cases showing up everyday and more deaths are sure to be reported before it gets better.

The acting director of the CDC, Richard Besser in collaboration with the new director of the federal government Health and Human Services Department, Kathleen Sebelius at to alerting, educating and supplying the means for the American people to get the help needed to combat this strain of influenza.

from today about the swine flu virus

Taking samples for Swin Flu testing

Reports of the near pandemic stem from Mexico and they are telling Americans unless needed do not travel to Mexico. There are some preventive measures that can be taken such as:

Wash your hands

Cover you nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough

Don’t go to work, school and daycare center etc if you are sick.

We are being urged to stay home if at all possible.

These are purely preventive measures and are no substitution for having the medication to combat the swine flu should you feel you are at risk or feeling ill.

What I do appreciate as an American citizen is that both agencies have met with President Obama and are aggressively working on this with inoculations, education, and preventative measures to prevent further contamination.

We are in for a journey as we all know there are cases that have not been reported while the strain is continuously being spread. Mr. Besser states it will get worse over the next days before it gets better. They are aware and working aggressively to get the help to those that need it.

Governor Schwarzenegger has authorized a statewide emergency for California pertaining to the swine flu. Cuba has restricted all flights in and out of Cuba for the next 24-48 hrs. Congress has passed a 1.5 billion dollar bill for the state of emergency funding to help combat this condition.

My advice is to stay updated via the media, internet as well as listening to President Obama’s address to the American people tonight @ 8 PM EST.

Symptoms of this strain of flu range from fever, to coughing and fatigue.

Both websites the Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have placed updates, guidelines, and reports of infected states on their websites. We are urged to pay attention and keep updated via the websites or the media for status reports.

Inoculations are being dispatched to the states that have report known cases of the swine flu they are the priority right now as stipulated by both agencies. More vaccines are also being fabricated as I write this.

Listening to a new break with Federal Government Health and Human Services director Kathleen Sebelius. There has now been an report of another school outbreak in New York.

Protect and educate yourselves and may God help us through this.

Nice Ride Mr. President!

Cadillac has finally released official photos of the Command-In-Chief’s new ride!

What can I say but I like it! Nice crisp lines and elegant like our CIC. Looks just like  it belongs to him . You can rest assured that all the safety and security measures are in place with this sleek vehicle. Of course they are not going to tell us the details I mean that’s common sense isn’t it?

Have to get a napkin cause it just makes your mouth water, looking like black licorice on   19.5-inch Goodyear tires. The chauffeur for past President Clinton has said that President Obama will be encased in a cocoon. The world is shut off from him in the limo. However he will have every piece of technology and communication that he needs at his fingertips.

Of course the main idea is to make the President feel safe and comfortable during his ride down Pennsylvania Avenue to the inauguration ceremony.

Very elegant Mr. President! See more pictures Here

Welcome to your new office as CIC!

The State of a new Secretary

Well sometimes I think I have E.S.P. Every since president-elect has started addressing the needs of this country with his transition team on http://www.change.gov ( I would advise you to go there sometime if you haven’t), it seems that I am able to think as he seems to with what needs to be done. Can I be that in tuned with what president-elect has in mind. Is it just too common sense to know these things.

Now I am sure that I will not like every move that he makes but so far so good. What better than to make Senator Hilliary Clinton the new Secretary of State. I am just elated and glad that they both decided that this was a great move for the country. She is already beginning to outline her plans and boy this is really going to be an exciting time for the country with a renewed strength and involvement for all the American attentive public.

Get involved American in some way no matter how big or small. We all can make a difference.

Fads….. Strawberry Quick and Cheese Part Two

Well as stated in part one. I would come and post about some small solutions to this growing menace as mentioned in part one. You can get up to speed about this new issue here @ Fads….Strawberry Quick and Cheese P1

Hopefully you have had a chance to read part one of this two part blog series about fad drugs that are on the increase among teens.

At the end of the Doctors show I viewed on yesterday there was help for the teens that were on the show. Help ranged from detox to enrollment into a drug program for the teens. Help for their families was also included as we very well know that the whole family is effected in one way or another with a drug addiction and all need healing help. I was very glad to see that but thought, what about those teens, children and parents not on the show?

I felt compelled to do something anything no matter how big or small. This is just a start I am not saying that this will solve the problem but just maybe it can chip away at it enough to make a difference.

I hope that you will also feel compelled to do something anything to help. If it’s only to talk to your teen or groups of teens about these fads that are increasing.

To let you know currently there is an act in our government called
the Saving Kids from Dangerous Drugs Act.

The act is awaiting legislative approval of Congress, and a final step of signing by the president before the bill is passes as law. I am sure President-Elect Obama is aware of this and it will pass into law.

Senators Feinstein and Grassley introduced legislation to penalize drug dealers who market candy-flavored meth to children.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has joined with Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa to sponsor a bill in congress that would make it a federal crime to appeal to children with candy-flavored meth or other drugs. Feinstein said that substances like “Strawberry Quick” are “…designed to get people to try it a few times. It’s all about hooking young people, and we have to stop this practice before it grows any further.”

Locally we can talk about this to educators, administrators and counselors of our schools systems.

Take this to your PTA meetings and see if they can help with educating your local school communities. Perhaps your school community could sponsor or orchestrate a program or a parent workshop about these fad drugs.

Maybe your local school system may be open to a program or an added lesson in a health class. Contact your local school principals and school boards.

Involve your local police to come and speak about it to students and parents.

Talk to your local city council at a city council meeting they may institute something for the community at large.

Contact your Senator or House Representative. I am sure they are aware of the Saving Kids from Dangerous Drugs Act.

Find your State Senators here
Find your State House of Representative here

Show your support by asking that they vote to pass the bill.

I have started an online petition (click the below image) to ask Congress when they reconvene for session, to vote “yes” to pass the act. If you feel this is important enough for a law to be enacted for the protection of our children and teens join me in letting Congress know how we feel as American people for the protection of our children and teens.

Crystal Meth petition

Should you have any suggestions of your own please let me know by posting a comment. You may never know who will see this and will be compelled also to action.

Finally I hope this has been an eye opener for you as it is for me. If you do nothing else just talk to your children/teens. The more we talk openly, honestly and immediately the better chance we have of chipping away at this new twist of a menace to society.

Talk to a child/teen they are asking for our help now.

Barack-in and Bar-ollin the Economy!

I was glad to see in the news this morning that President-elect Obama is getting right to business with addressing the state of the economy. From the associated press it seems that President-elect is getting busy and taking no prisoners to address this horrid state our country is in at present. He is gathering and probably speaking as I am writing this with key financial and academia authorities like Xerox, Time Warner, Google about what the government is going to do about our economy. Key figures, my favorite Warren Buffet will also be participating via phone a who endorsed President-elect Obama during his campaign.


President-Elect Barack Obama in Chicago full story


Barack Obama

Not only is President-elect Obama meeting with key financial and academia figures but he is also asking the American people for their help and opinions of what the government should do about the economy. Now if this isn’t true democracy being practiced I don’t know what is. If you are so inclined to let our President-elect out ,as he asked for in his acceptance speech on Tuesday night, then here is the web site where you can do that.

Go to President-elect Obama’s official website to help him out he is asking us!

I just love this when over the past decade has any president asked for help from the public and sincerely meant it? I am so excited for us as a country and feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Although we realize it will be a long run because of our countries current state. I am willing to do my part as an American citizen to help solve some of these issues no matter how small. I believe that if each of us does at least one thing to help our government heal us we will be much better off. There are alot of people that want to get on board with this. As President-elect Obama says, “Join us”!
