Last presidential election I blogged constantly against BHO.  I didn't like the way our country was headed, I hated the Affordable Health Care Act, I hated the way he was racially dividing the country, I hated the loss of jobs and the horror of our national debt. His success about job creation is posted all the time.  What is not listed is how many people have stopped looking for jobs so they don't count in the over all statistics.  What is ignored is the vast increase in people needing government assistance. What can be said I have often heard in the  months leading up to the election that "that was then and this is now".  Trump won.   I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat into Wednesday morning and when it was announced that he had won I cried tears of happiness and hope. Social media is on fire with people who are crying about Hillary.  I will never understand how those who supported her could over look all the damning emails, the double talk and the outright lies.   I don't like Bernie Sanders because he is a socialist BUT I am very glad he did not get the nomination.  He would have been difficult to beat.  If she had selected him as her running mate I believe that they might have won. How, after the emails came out, he continued to assist her is a mystery.  It is true that money does talk.

I voted for Trump because I am sick to death of the religion of political correctness.  We used to be tough in this country.  "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me". I was raised that way.  I don't get offended when a patient addresses me as old or fat.  I am old and I am fat.  If I don't like it I can change.  Well I can change the fat part unfortunately  the age part I am stuck with. I don't need the government or legislation to "protect" me from words.  I can take care of myself,  We now have a generation of wimps, and pussies, who run to an attorney when their feelings get hurt.  We are being forced to accept a "vocal" change of sexual gender and share our dressing rooms and bathrooms by someone who feels like they are a woman.  If you feel that strongly then get a sex change but do not expect me to pay for the process. If you cannot afford it then get a job, save your money and go through the process but until then use the facilities based on your birth parts. Liberals in our country are speaking out about gender neutrality .  No more he and she, nothing that indicates the gender of the person with whom you are speaking because you might offend them. Oh for God's sake  this is just plain horse poop. It is an education watching my boy and girl twin grandchildren.  Since early months there is no question that Patton is a boy and Aster is a girl by their actions.  My daughter  and son in law are not forcing HER into gender neutral clothes(she likes her frilly sparkly things and her jewelry)nor are they insisting that Patton not be able to play with dolls but he seems to like to play with cars more.

 The advent of social media we have witnessed a level of cruelty not ever documented before and the genie can never return to the bottle.  I place the blame of the cruel things coming out of their children's mouth directly on the way they were raised.  Parents who tolerate rudeness and unacceptable behavior are to blame.  Refusal to discipline your little prince or princess are to blame. Never believing that your children are capable of horrible actions is delusional  and I see this daily just going to the store.  Parents who allow their children unfettered access to the internet are to blame.  Children need guidance and discipline and parents need to be able to apply a paddle to their butts without worrying that the state is going to visit them.    What I find amusing is the number of times the police down here are called to homes by parents because their children are acting up. It is not the job of the government to tell us how to raise our kids.  This segues into what is happening just after the election.  High schools mostly in California and several colleges have canceled classes, tests and school to help them "cope" with the Trump win they are so very very fragile.  That is a parental failure.  Gee I can't remember that happening with Romney supporters in 2012.  We just sent our kids to school and went to work.  That speaks volumes  about the type of people that are Hillary democrats.  Look in our streets at the post election riots, burnings, and public damage that is being done.  That never happened when republicans lost.  We take our lumps like adults.  I would make a huge bet that the non college protests are being wound up by a George Soros company with professional protesters. I would also bet that not one in ten of those losers  voted.  I would also bet that most of them do not work.. Looking on TV you see a majority of young people that appear under thirty. Your parent's failure is evident.  One young lady on the news is stating that people are going to die because the election.

I want the borders closed.  I want a wall with a very small door.  You want to move here do it legally.  If you are here illegally then go home.  Now.  The wall can easily be built if you charge a transfer fee to all money sent back into Mexico.  Charge an entrance and exit fee for an administrative cost for anyone leaving the southern border of the United States either by land sea or air.   That is punishing us you might think.... nope it will hit our southern neighbors who depend on tourism for their livelihoods.  My bet is Mexico will make it up on one end or the other. I do not want refugees over here from any country that sponsors terrorism.   Set up camps or centers in countries that have the same values and beliefs.  You know the beliefs I am talking about...  the ones that believe that women are inferior and can be stoned at will, the ones that kill homosexuals, the ones that believe it is appropriate to marry a 12 year old. The belief that Sharia law should be the law of the land.   They can have their own place and we will even protect them and provide food. 

I voted for Trump because I want the Iran deal decimated.  They have repeatedly gone against the "deal" and we are ignoring that fact.  They are an immediate threat to Israel.  Netanyahu is happy with our choice of president.  They are our strongest allies in that region and they need our support.  I want ISIS destroyed sooner than later.  Obama and Clinton's failure in dealing with that group has set us back months if not years.  I want financial and military action to destroy any terrorist group. 

I voted for Trump because of the non-Affordable Care Act.  I said in the beginning in a blog that it was designed to fail.  I actually read it.  I didn't understand a lot and had to spend time researching what the hell they said. It took me months but I read it. The costs are skyrocketing and it will implode on itself.  Don't forget we were promised that it would save us money AND we would be able to keep our doctors.  All lovely lies.    I really believe that we are on an trip of no return into a single payer system.  Keep in mind that is what Hillary and Obama wanted and I believe that the ACA was set up to fail to usher in a single payer system.  I do not think that we will be able to change much.  What I want changed is that working people should  not have to subsidize  your insurance with their coverage.  I am now on Medicare and it scares the shit out of me.  I pray that under Trump we will not have a government group deciding what we deserve.  I do not like what the ACA has done to our hospital and doctor reimbursements they are pitiful and put us in a terrible position of losing funds for many reasons based on how we are graded. 

I voted for Trump because he is an outsider and a businessman.  We are in debt up to our eyeballs our children and grandchildren will be paying our debt.  This can no longer be blamed on Bush.  This  is all Obama.  He has enriched the "entitlement" generation.  We have people who are living off the government and have no intention of working if jobs were available.  I believe that those who have lost jobs and hope will find a light at the end of the tunnel as soon as Trump takes office.  I was at the store and was standing in front of a girl in scrubs. I asked where she worked.  This is a quote " I don't work, I have 2 children.  I told her I worked and I had two children.  She told me that she didn't have to that she had benefits.   By the way she was not married. She does deserve kudos for  talking to me and not telling me to mind my own business.

I voted for Trump because I am tired of our lawlessness.  I am tired that protests are an excuse for looting and burning property.  I love his support of the police in our nation.  Yes there are bad cops just like nurses, doctors, teachers and preachers.  We need to weed them out.  But a group who espouses the murder of police officers should be listed as terrorists.   I voted for Trump because I love our military and they have been forgotten.  He will bring hope to our veterans and build up our military.  We cannot bring over and support refugees when we have our veterans in such dire circumstances.  They earned that money. 

I voted for Trump because I genuinely like him.  I don't like everything he says.  But, and this is a big but, he is brash and says what is on his mind there is no question what he thinks and I like that.  I like it a lot.  I believe he is more moderate then people think and that is okay.  I just want to have my country out of the clutches of the liberal fanatics that have been operating unfettered for the last 8 years.  Half of us are fiscally, emotionally, and morally conservative and we have a voice. What the left CANNOT stand is that part of that half are gay, lesbian, black, Hispanic, those with education and those who are blue collar. Our half spoke on November 8th.    

I do not like Obama in any way but I have never missed a night praying for his safety and that of his family.  I can bet that there are few if any liberals who will pray for our choice.  They are not made that way.  I will pray everyday for Donald Trump and his family.   God protect him and guide him during this time  and during the next four years. 

This blog is dedicated to my sister Barbara Heibel.  She would have supported Trump and praised his victory.  I wish you had been here!!!

I have been asked by the two people that read this blog two questions.  The first being why I have not written in so long?   The answer is I don't know. My that was easy when actually the truth is a bit more complicated.   I think I have been lazy.  I have had so many many blog subjects running around in my head as I live out each day that I have not been able to sit down to write. My most fertile area of ideas comes from the ER but that pesky thing called HIPPA prevents me from capitalizing on what would be a potential best seller. The second question is why, after writing volumes on Obama during both of his election years, I have not put anything down about this current election.  The answer is quite simple.  I loathe that woman to such an extent that my blood pressure rises every time I  see that cow on TV. The fact that our current POTUS is campaigning for her adds to the vomit and headache factor.  Susan Hodge this blog is for you.

We are in an election with a seasoned politician vs. the reality TV King.  Well this would seem like a no brainer except that it's not.  Donald Trump beat out 17 Republican hopefuls, all seasoned 'statesmen' and I use that term loosely, to capture the crown.  He is rude, sometimes crude, insulting, and temperamental.  I  LOVE him.  Every time he opens his mouth he is speaking for me. I love the wall, I love the idea of deporting illegal aliens, I love the idea of getting rid of or revamping the so called Affordable Care Act.  I love that he is a business man and has great successful kids who adore him. I love love love the fact that he is not politically correct. We are rapidly becoming a nation of panty-waist whiney babies where a single word can send a person running to a lawyer because of emotional distress. I love the fact that he has not spent most of his adult life in Washington. I love the fact that he is smart enough to surround himself with brilliant people.   Lets address the complaints about him from the left of center.  He is a xenophobe.  Xenophobia: n. A person who is fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or of people from different countries or cultures. Donald Trump has business interests in Canada, Turkey, Panama, South Korea, the Philippines, India, Uruguay, Ireland , Scotland, Brazil, Azerbaijan, and Dubai to name the current few.  Maybe he had therapy to deal with his xenophobia because he has done very well dealing with all those foreigners successfully.  Homophobia: n.  The irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or anyone in the LGBT community.  It is well documented that he does not support non-traditional marriage.  I do not have any figures to know if he has any workers in the community but I would imagine that in the thousands of employees that he had there are more than a few.  There is documentation of  his friendships in the community. He can change his mind just as Hillary has.  I have gay friends who will be voting for him anyway because as one man put it.  "I trust him and like the majority of things he stands for".  Speaking frankly, because this is my blog I have a huge issue with transgenderism.  If you were born a man then you are still a man until you cut off your offending member. Like wise if you are a woman and want to be a man then until that time that you close off the canal and grow a penis(or have one made) you are still a woman.  You use the bathroom dictated by how you pee. Stay out of my bathroom and my dressing room.... but I digress. (there will be another blog about this issue).  Racist: n. A person who believes that a particular race is superior to another and Sexist: n. A person who has sexist attitudes or behaves in a sexist manner. Racist is most commonly a term used  to  describe feelings against African Americans and now Mexicans by Caucasians. Trump hires the best.  He runs a business and if you are African American, Hispanic or a woman and you are the best you will get a job.  There is no history of him refusing to  hire a person just because of the color of their skin, or their sex.  Bruce Levell  who founded the National Diversity Coalition  For Trump says he has met most of the top execs for Trump and he sees no  sign of discrimination. He is quoted as saying if " you're black, small, white or tall.  If you've got a gift and a talent he's going after you." It is a fact that he supports and encourages women in his organization to reach for the top and promote them in male dominated fields.  Islamaphobia: n. A dislike or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.  Well if you do not want people from countries that support terrorism to be allowed to enter our country at this time  and that is considered an Islamaphobic then I guess that includes one hell of a lot of Americans including me. FBI Director Comey stated to Congress that the government does not have the ability to  conduct  thorough background checks on all the  10,000 Syrian refugees that Obama administration wants to let into our country. Trump is correct.  At this time our borders need to be closed. As far a Illegals from Mexico goes that needs to stop as well.  You should not be allowed come into our country and receive any benefits that we grant our citizens. Mexico would not allow that to happen in their country so why should they condemn us for the same.

Hillary Clinton wants the job.  She is a sociopath. Sociopath: n. a person who  lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others.  A sociopath is often goal-oriented and have little regard or respect for the rights or feelings of others. Do you know how you can tell Hillary is telling the truth?  Her mouth is closed. I wish I could take credit for that.   Hillary is for women's rights.  Um hum.  Tell that to all the women Bill  slept with, raped or intimated. She eviscerated those women.  So women's rights only apply to certain women.   She repeatedly stated that she was against gay marriage but to give the cow her hay, she like Trump, can change her stand on that.  She and her husband have the Clinton pay-for-play Foundation.  I am sure that the Foundation  has done some good.  The main thing that it has helped has been the Clintons.  It is currently under investigation for multiple improprieties.  I do not believe that our current Justice Department will do anything.  The Attorney General Loretta Lynch will never touch her unless she kills someone on national TV. Books have been written about the Clinton and their corruption. I cannot even begin to cover everything.  It is easiest to say that she remains above the law. She has lied and lied and lied to the American Public and justifies it or blames it on someone else.  She has been given a pass from the FBI and the DOJ repeatedly on things that if you or I had committed we would never see the light of day.  I still want to know what happened with Benghazi and maintain that the blood of four Americans are on her.   She perpetuated the lie that the attack was caused by a video.  Her emails have been destroyed and wiped clean.  Remember when she said she only had a Blackberry to communicate  well make that  13 Blackberrys and 5 iPads. None of which were government issued.  She had her own server.  The FBI proved that she lied repeatedly about receiving and sending classified government information and they still did not bring charges against her.  Many of her communication devices were physically destroyed.  My guess is she didn't want anyone to get information about her daughters wedding or her yoga appointments.  When confronted with her lies she doubles down and continues to lie.  When confronted with FBI testimony about her lies her statement was that she heard it a different way.   I love it,  she has selective hearing.  She only hears really good things about herself.  She has condemned  Trump of being pro Russian.  It is darling Hillary that needs to answer how on her watch Russian was given control of 20%of the uranium production in the United States. If your interested look up the creation of "Uranium One" As the Russians gained control of Uranium One  money was given to the Clinton Foundation totaling over 2 million dollars.  At the same time Slick Willie the former president was given  half a million for a speech in Moscow.  He may be entertaining but what could he possibly say worth all that money.   Considering all that there are still those who  look the other way and consider her presidential material. 

I am obsessed with the news and will continue to be so until the election.  I will vote wearing Trump Red so that I can be identified as a supporter.  We need change we don't need another term of Obama. Our country is at stake. Our debt is staggering, our healthcare is in jeopardy, crime is escalating, our borders are a sieve.   I am willing to give the businessman a chance after all 8 years ago the country gave the biggest job in the land to Obama and he had no experience.. and how has that worked out for us.

PS: catty sexist comment ahead.... someone needs to fire her dresser or get her one which ever pertains.  Maybe her vision like her hearing is selective because she looks like hell in those ridiculous pant suits

Blessings and Poop

Oh Lord this had not been a pleasant spring thus far.   My mother-in-law died and was buried on February 1.  She had been hospitalized for nearly a month and was suffering horribly for  a time.  Stan drove down to St. Petersburg just days before she died and I am so grateful that he had that time with her.  Becky, the kids, and I left that Saturday to drive and I woke up with an abscessed tooth.  I got my medication took it like a good girl and when I got back went to see my dentist....who referred me to a dental surgeon because of an impacted wisdom tooth.  I never had those little pesky things removed and they  lay dormant all these years just lurking under my gums.  It helped that the oral surgeon looked like Dennis Quaid.  I still was scared spit less. It took nearly two hours to complete the surgery and involved removing a small part of my jaw. I apparently sang and hummed "the sun will come out tomorrow" from Annie the entire time except when I launched into "when your a jet your a jet all the way....  lalalala from West Side Story. They thought it was hysterical.   Post op orders were soft and liquids for the next month.   My Boss had the right idea when he said it sounded like vodka and ice cream time! I started private Pilates class with Fiona to increase my core strength and to help my posture and also for weeks I had just not felt good.  Not bad just low energy, lack of motivation, and kind of an "eh" attitude.  I worked my 6 day stretch and then watched the twins for Becky.  We made big plans with Joshua's two babies and Becky's three for a weekend and had lovely things for everyone to do.  I got nauseated on that Monday and went to work on Tuesday and left after 30 minutes to go back home.  I had generalized abdominal pain and felt a good fart would relieve all symptoms.  I ended up back at my hospital that afternoon when the pain localized to my lower right side.  I cannot say enough about the staff at St Martin Hospital.  I know that I am part of the family but I have watched them give the care to others that they gave me.  I was coddled and pampered and cared for from the moment I walked in from the ER staff to lab and xray.  I had an appendicitis and needed to be transferred.    That night at LGMC South I had emergency surgery and it was discovered that my appendix had ruptured.  I thought I was tough.  I breezed thru a bilateral mastectomy in 2003  but this had knocked my socks off.  The surgeon told me that I was a little older this time around... duh.  The worst thing is the crying.  I cannot stop the tears and do not know why.  I do remember coming to in recovery hoping that my mom was there.  I fully woke up and that lingering thought made me cry.  Becky spent the first night with me and I was dreaming about my mom.  I awoke with the thought " I am there, in her hands" as I looked at the sleeping form of my precious daughter  and I realized what an awesome gift that I had been given.  Pooping becomes the obsession.  If you don't poop you cannot leave.  If you take pain medication you  don't poop.  I quit my last narcotic on Thursday and Friday morning requested a gram of Tylenol and 600mgs of Motrin every eight hours.  I also told them to get me a ducolax pill.  I gained my release Saturday after I could prove that I could eat and poo.  The only lingering problem I have is this incessant crying.  A car commercial just set me off.   I am walking almost upright and decided that my focus now need to be my many many blessings and not these medical problems that should have occurred in my 20s. 
I am BLESSED to be alive and to be able to see the humor in this whole mess including the crying.  I am blessed that I work for St. Martin and that the entire staff is like family.  I am blessed that I have 5 dogs that are not house broken yet(do not ask me to explain why that is a blessing).  I am blessed that I have not used my e-cig for a week.  I am blessed that I have little pain that is controlled by non narcotics.  I am blessed that I have a husband who is caring for me and waiting on me hand and foot.  I am blessed that I have a daughter that has the DNA of my mom and that she is so loving and caring.  I am blessed that my son is rediscovering himself and making a place in paradise. I am blessed that I CAN cry,  I am blessed that I have a strong connection to many people and they came out in messages and calls of support.  I can only hope that in their time of need that I can be such a blessing.  I am blessed that I am a believer and that prayer is just not a word for me but an actual activity.   And last but not least I am so very glad that I can poop... it opens all kinds of doors
