Why Government Health Care Does Not Work!

Here is the article in full.

On a personal note, when my Mother was 53 years old I got THE call in the middle of the night from my Father to say that he didnt think my Mother was going to make it. She was in the hospital having suffered a heart attack. I got on the next plane home to England and my Father drove me straight to the hospital to see her. I was a basket case but pulled myself sufficiently together to go in there. Dad said they had made her stable as they could.

We walked into the ward where she was to find her packing her little bag. She had been told that the bed was needed for someone else who was more serious and that she should go home and rest. May I remind you that she had just had a heart attack... Despite the stress tests, EKG's and so forth all pointing to her needed bypass, they sent her home.

I was so jet lagged anyway and wide awake with worry, I shoved her and dads single beds together, dad slept on the sofa fully clothed in case we had to call an ambulance again, and just held her hand because she told me she was too afraid to go to sleep in case she never woke up. During that time I appologised for everything even if it wasnt my fault and we bonded after being apart for such a long time.

After a few weeks it became apparent she needed the bypass her heart was blocked and she was getting angina pains, so we had her Doctor pull a few strings to get her back in. The operation was a success, she is still alive an in her late sixties now.

More and more you hear other stories of people with cancer dying when they could have been saved with private medicine. Do you want to have to beg your Doctor to pull a few strings for you?

Everything the Government gets involved in gets screwed up! Yes the Government likes to spend money but I bet it will be as tight as assholes with spending money on this. Some little pencil necked beaurocrat who isnt even and MD makign decisions on perhaps you or your loved ones life and death situation. I dont know about you, but I dont want that.

Some bright spark said, "What about all the people that have lost their jobs and there insurance?" Cobra? How about going down to the public aid office to see if you qualify for a card?

This problem does need to be addressed but not by dismanting the private insurance all together.

Our one day to celebrate who we are, how far we have come, reduced to a few sparklers and hotdogs? Say it isnt so! I say lets party like the worlds coming to an end! Its my daughters 17th Birthday so fireworks at the Rose House!!! Come on over!

Fred.. how very intriguing...

Who is Fred I hear you ask? This young man my daughter has been friends with at school who has since graduated from Salem Highschool is over helping her.. study. Yes, text books are out, they are studying an "Ology" and not biology as I told her I will be knocking on the door and opening it periodically and sticking my smiling face around it.

"Oh Mum!" she said, "Don't act like Dad did, please??!"

My reply was:

"I am your parent and I will act as I see fit, young lady, it is my job to ask questions and be annoying sometimes."

Her eyes rolled heavenward. "Tough tittie!" I said

"We are not "Hanging Out" we are studying", she says.
I reminded her that armed with todays research, if "Hanging Out" means letting it ALL hang out, there will be:
Ass Kickings.

Fred looks like a young and pre-aids ridden Freddie Mercury and is straight as an arrow. Pretty cool. So far he has not given me cause to start cleaning the assorted weaponry.

Romanov's Found!

Everyone knows the story of the Romaonov's Russia's last Royal family, who were imprisioned, and murdered by the Bolsheviks on the orders of Lennin. A mass grave was found and with the technologies in DNA and forensic science, the remains were positively indentified as that of the Romanov's.

There has been some speculation over the years as to wether one of the children Anastasia, escaped. A woman claming to be the lost Grand Dutchess spent years trying to prove she was Anastasia. Anna Anderson died a few years back.

Apon further escavation, two other skeletons were found, and were postively identified using DNA as that of Anastasia and her Brother Crown Prince Alexei.

SARL - Salem Animal Rescue League.

While I am un-employed, I have volunteered at the local animal shelter. I usually walk the dogs but I can also be found in Kitty City, helping to take care of our large cat population. I would take them all home if we had the space and the money. This is good therapy for me. If you can find time, please ask at the local shelter if they need volunteers, also they are always in need of donations of course. It could be some money or dog food, cat food, collars, old quilts and pillows for bedding. Anything you can spare.

What is wrong with people these days?

More to the point, what is wrong with teenage boys?

My Daughter is gorgeous, and I am not just saying that because I am her Mother. Shes bright, great personality and I would think could have her pick of guys. Every single boy she has taken a shine too, has dumped her as soon as it was apparent she was not going to.. how can I delicately put this..PUT OUT. Is there any such thing as just being friends with guys without all the pressure to go to bed with them? I just want to bounce these guys heads off the hood of my car personally, but then I would figure as a parent, this reaction is not un-common.

So, I did a bit of research with regards to what is called, Hanging out. Used to be called, asking a girl out on a date beccause you liked her. I came up with these pearls of wisdom.

"These days when people say "I'm dating so-and-so," this is usually a euphemism for "I'm f*** so-and-so."

OK, I can go for that. Dating usually can get serious and end up with the horizontal mamba.

"What does the term 'hanging out' mean to you? It use to mean we go the movies or bar together, talk about our woes when it comes to dating and strictly platonic."

Yeah, thats what I thought it meant! So did my Daughter.- Bird.

"This is what I've observed lately ....When a guy says 'hanging out' he simply wants to bang you but doesnt want to date you nor does he want to be seen as a liar so he says we're just hanging out. Then he decides he's 'confused' and not sure if he wants a girlfriend or just be alone. But not so alone he can't get laid. If you're not in the market for a girlfriend, why pursue a girl as if you're really interested? Isn't that lying?

Sorry, anyone I perceive as wanting to "bang" my Daughter if she agrees to "Hang out" is getting very short on life force. - Bird.

"Guys just want to get laid. Sure they'll "hang out" with you if it gets them closer to that goal. It's kind of an insult. If he's just "hanging out" with you, then he's probably looking to "date" someone else and keeping his options open. A guy who can't even commit to a date isn't serious."

So.. Teenage dating equals meat market?- A very confused Bird.

Which brings me to HOOKING UP.

I know what that means.

If she wants to hang out, this is good, hooking up.. not so good but I know she will be safe if she cannot be abstinate.

What happened to just plain old asking a girl out on a date then maybe if its still going on, you are going steady, then you go to bed with that person because you are attracted to them. What happened to GOING STEADY?

Then I find this from a young guys POV:

"I got this one:When you someone asks you, 'Hey, lets um...let's hang out sometime." Yes. There is interest in the dudes part.To what extend one may ask herself. Does he want to be friends? Does he want to be my potential boyfriend? Does he want to simply peel of my pants and ravish my body for one glorious evening?Answer is it could be ANY of the above and you will not know until you....well um: Hang out.That is why you hang out. You want to want to find out where exactly is this boy taking the interaction. And Obviously if you choose to hang out with him, there is interest on your part as well. To what extent? Maybe you want to be his friend. Maybe you want to be his potential Girlfriend. Maybe you want to simply peel off his pants and ravish his body for one glorious evening. The whole idea here is to SEE if you desires matches his desires. As soon as you realize that its not matching pull the plug. That's it. You decide. That's what's great about being a GIRL. The boy pursues. The boy leads the interaction. And as the girl you simply go along with the ride and jump off when you realize that the boy is leading things where you dont want to go.If your interest is to be a friend. then ignore and brush off his advances and don't make any advances yourself. Eventually the boy will get a clue. If not, and the boy happens to be thick headed, give him the 'I like you as a friend' card. (Yes, which all guys dread. But its not your fault if homeboy is thick headed.) Maybe he doesnt make any advances, well...then its obvious he wants you as a friend. If your interest is to be his potential girlfriend, except his advances and show interest yourself. Then see where he takes it. And becareful of screwing him too early. make the boy invest more time. If he does, its clear that he like you more than just a fuck. I dont think any boy will invest all that time in you just because of a fuck. its mostly likely because he likes you.Sleep with him the first day if you want too. Sex is a beautiful and normal thing. It's not 'BAD.' But yes, there are liars and manipulators that miscommunicate to you just so he can get a fuck. Just weed them out by seeing how much they are willing to invest. (And I mean TIME, not MONEY for godsakes!!!!)If you want to simply ravish his body for one glorious night: well...that a no brainer. Go wild."

Thank God she is on the pill.. yes I want her to abstain, but lets be honest. She is 17 and the hormones are raging so I decided I wanted her to be safe if she is going to have consensual sex. I also figured if "Hanging out" gets out of hand, and leads to letting it all hang out, I want her to be safe, then I will go and try to cut the guys nuts off-Bird.

When did it ever get so bloody complicated??
Hanging out can lead to:
Goofing Off.
which leads to:
Not Buckling Down.
Not Shaping Up.
Or other more intense activities such as:
Screwing Around
Hooking Up.
Parents, beware...

Meet Luchia.

This is our new ride. A Ducati 750SS

She was supposed to be mine but the riding position is just too prone for me and she is a little to tall which meant I could only get my tip toes on the deck.

So, I am still searching for a ride for myself.

Yes, I am BAAACK!

Riots in Europe, nothing in the USA, at least, no pictures posted, anywhere. Contrived? or am I just looking in the wrong place. I searched the whole web. Funny how you can find pictures of David Carradine trussed up like Sundays Roast, but no pictures of unrest in the USA.
Saucey as ever and madder than a wet hen, then so many people ARE really mad at the moment about a whole lot of different things! Same in the UK. The serfs have had enough in my old home land and they have begun to take action:
and I quote:

"London - A leading British thinktank Friday warned of the 'grave threat' of social unrest in response to the global recession over the next two years.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), in a paper published Friday, rated the risk of upheaval that could 'disrupt economies and topple governments' as 'high or very high' in 95 countries.
'Popular anger around the world is growing as a result of rising unemployment, pay cuts and freezes, bail-outs for banks, and falls in house prices and the value of savings and pension funds,' said the EIU paper, entitled Manning the Barricades.
'As people lose confidence in the ability of governments to restore stability, protests look increasingly likely.'
A spate of incidents in recent months had shown that the global economic downturn was having political repercussions.
'This is being seen as a harbinger of worse to come. There is growing concern about a possible global pandemic of unrest,' said the paper.
Top of the list of high-risk countries were Zimbabwe, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cambodia and Sudan.
However, three of the European Union's neighbours - Ukraine, Moldova and Bosnia-Hercegovina - were rated as being at 'very high risk' of social upheaval.
The paper pointed out that two European governments - in Iceland
and in Latvia - had already fallen as a result of crisis.
In Europe, Britain was 'not immune' from the danger of serious social unrest and 'more likely' to suffer from it than Germany and the Netherlands, but 'less likely' than France and the US.
A lot depended on how US President Barack Obama responded to pressure to 'defend American jobs and companies against foreign imports,' said the paper.
'As the downturn worsens, far more intense and long-lasting events can be expected, such as armed rebellions, military coups, civil conflicts and perhaps even wars between states,' it said. Read more:"

the above is from from end quote.

While these people are thinking in their tanks it might be a good idea to do some real brain- storming on how individuals are going to protect themselves in the even of catastrophic failures or mass violent demonstrations, or even someone coming to steal your food and water. I try not to be an alarmist but I am seeing more apathy in the US than ever at the moment and the only voices I am hearing is from the presidentially run media's other than FOX News network. Nothing is reaching me concerning a growing amount of people in the USA getting pissed and making their voices heard, am I wrong? Please post if I am, and let everyone know what is going on in your neighborhoods and cities.

Am I missing the unrest? Or has the Great Bear not been poked fully awake yet? Will it take a nuclear weapon aimed at the US? We have several contestants for the first buttwad to press the button. North Korea, Iraq, or a Taliban run Pakistan.

So my questions are, gentle readers, when is enough, enough? Do you see signs of unrest and people wanting to take back their country?

Whos going to press the button, first?

Techincal Issues with The British Bird blogg

I mean, granted, I have been a bit quiet of late but I found myself with time on my hands to day and went on my blog to put a post on and catch up on reading. I recieved an email from USA_ADMIRAL concerned that he could not post a comment to anything after my complaint about being stalked.

The stalking issue has been taken care of, but I couldnt for the life of me find out why my blog wasnt getting any comments.

So, the end result was me re-doing my blog.

Things are good, Becca is doing well, is almost finished with her jnr year, I have my youngest paying me a visit for two weeks, flying in next wed. Mr. Bird is doing well, is out with the USCG at the moment.

hope you are all well, and coping.
Love, The Bird.
