To understand this, you have to really know me.

It's been a long and rainy two weeks. This is one of the reasons I moved to the desert southwest and why I would never live in places like Seattle: Too much rain, doom, and gloom.

Yet, here I am in the midst of all the gloom, but here is also where my doctors are. Can't have it all, as the saying goes. In life, it is all about choices. Choices and change.

I see the oncologist this week....

Enough said.

So, we're pulling up to the hospital (yeah, yet another appointment), and the cell phone interrupts my attempts of calming myself. Yeah...

Anyway, it was the hospital asking about insurance, yada, yada, if?!!!

I wasn't too happy and just yes, yes them. I didn't have time to play their insidious games right at that moment.

Suffice it to say, my medicaid is in a "sanctuary" state and they were seeing potential problems. I assured them that was being taken care of, which it is. I see social services next week.

Okay, intelligent people will figure this one out all by themselves and for the not so intelligent, go online and just read about how illegals are given everything with NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!

I'll bet anyone who wasn't a legal American, without a doubt, did not get any sort of phone call like this. I guarantee it!!

This is what is wrong and so absurd. I've been on disability since 1995. I had my stomach removed and have a permanent feeding tube, because of an autoimmune disease. Plus, and this is the kicker, I was diagnosed with leukemia last fall!! And I'm the one they are after?!!

Think about it...enough said.

Spent all day at the hospital, am totally exhausted and what is in the news?! THIS:!!!

Okay, I am officially pissed and if I had known this before the hospital, I would've said something to that Hispanic family on the elevator who spoke NO ENGLISH! I would have said something like, "Oh hey, you know that summer is on its way so make sure you have plenty of I.C.E.!!!" No holds barred!! I'm taking no prisoners any longer! Enough is enough! This was my comment on BREITBART:

"Okay liberal judge who doesn't give a crap about us Americans (don't care what your name is), my Medicare and Medicaid benefits will plummet (I have cancer & a feeding tube), while illegals will continue getting my 'paid for by my own taxes, withheld from my hard earned paychecks' care, for free?! Go f-ck yourself!!!"

Want access to our healthcare?! Become LEGAL and pay your Social Security and other taxes!! If I have to go through this 'system,' so do YOU!!!

Last year I met a lady from Columbia and her mother was coming to live here LEGALLY!! Guess what?! She had to wait for a year or so, after being here, to get the health care she needed!! She had a feeding tube also.

I have no problem with this. So why is it these illegals get something for nothing over us?!

Meanwhile, this THOR 3: Ragnarok looks like a GREAT movie!! Something to 'take me away' from all the world's crapola!! Three hours of pure enjoyment. Just what the doctor ordered!! Just have to wait until November...

With all the crap happening in the world and us being inundated with questionable ethics of journalists and the media, I felt this was important enough to post. Yes, it pertains to celebrities, fashion, healthcare and politics in general. Will everyone just slow down and actually think and use their heads?! Hearts and intelligence before pocketbooks!!

Common Sense Obituary

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved friend, Common Sense, who has been
with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was as his birth
records were lost long ago in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing
when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life
isn't always fair and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple sound financial policies (don't spend more
then you earn) and reliable parenting (adults, not children are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
charged with harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from
school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job
they themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It
declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to
administer Panadol, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student; but could
inform the parents when a student became pregnant.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became
contraband, churches became businesses and criminals received better
treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a
burglar in your own home and the burglar can sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her
lap and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth and Trust, his wife
Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son Reason. He is survived
by three stepbrothers: I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame and I'm a victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you
still remember him, pass this on. If not join the majority and do nothing.

(Everyone is guilty! Even me!)

A good friend of the family, from Berlin, Germany, also here LEGALLY, sent me this note after reading my last post:

I sooooo agree, Karen! I also became American because I love this country and had to pass a test to become American and you are so right, you have the healthcare coming because you paid into it....and still do! What I really find “unfair” is how the pregnant women from Mexico come into the United States to give birth and the newborns are American—you figure! How are you doing? Bill is done with his knee-surgery, it has been 4 weeks now and he is s l o w l y   getting better.
