A Free Country?


My USA friends that are ill, like me…. we will not have fun with socialized medicine! Nothing great_ is free! It’s an illusion, because your taxes will go up by a lot and you pay for your care (& everyone else’s) in other ways. It’s not free! You must work hard in life and pay for what you get. When I worked at the hospital you only had to pay five dollars a month to prove that you were trying! They never went after anybody. You can say whatever you want about the news source but Look again because it is actually the NHS & the Royal college of OB/GYN’s that provided this information.
*****NHS Patients Waiting More Than One Year for Non-Coronavirus Treatment Highest Since 2008: https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/11/12/nhs-patients-waiting-more-year-non-coronavirus-treatment-highest-2008/

Let me explain further. I have friends that have been like family to me. There are some in Scotland & some in England. Here are a few stories they told us in person.

  • They personally have waited 18 months for an MRI & 12 months for a CT scan
  • One friend in Scotland (age 55yrs), got cancer and was all set to receive chemotherapy. They showed up for their first treatment & they were told that “the NHS & the Dr they were assigned; decided their treatment was going to be too expensive.” The patient was afraid and asked more questions. They were told when they do the math for their age of 55, & the cost of treatment, it was too expensive. They couldn’t go anywhere else because they are assigned districts. They could pay privately, but most people (as in my friends case) don’t have the money to pay for private health care. She passed away within 10 months to a year from breast cancer.
  • Another true story from one friend in UK, is about when he got false teeth at age 19 yrs, due to gum disease. The false teeth/dentures, didn’t fit well and gave him sores over and over again. They would try to fix them but refused a new set. Finally at approximately age 40, he had enough money to go to a private dentist (NOT the NHS). He got a great set of new and great-fitting dentures. The sores never returned once he got dentures with private health care
  • Another true story is about my friend in UK. She got ill & diagnosed with a bladder infection & pneumonia. This was in or around 2012-13. She was hospitalized. It was a long holiday weekend in UK. She was catheterized and left for hours. Only to be given antibiotics and sent home. She was sent home with a catheter inside of her (she’d never had one before and didn’t feel comfortable at all). They told her “because it was a holiday weekend, there’d be no one to care for her in the hospital.” She was told to return on Tuesday and they’d admit her most likely. She got much worse and finally had to get an ambulance to take her to Emergency. There she sat until Tuesday anyways.
  • I’ve seen people that I know in USA, say they think “free medical” or Socialized medicine “would be great”. Two of these people have kids with Down Syndrome. I hate to break the news to them, but with socialized medicine, they think these beautiful tiny humans, do not deserve a chance at life and happiness. They have very few instances of Down Syndrome now in UK. The reason being that they suggest abortion or as I call it, Eugenics!
  • Any lives that don’t look worth living, on paper; they want, encourage or allow death instead of helping these people.
  • Also, if you are over 55, the majority of the times, you are not worth saving or helping, according to NHS.
  • Lastly, you have zero choices. Everything is dictated to you. You lose all control over your own treatment options, according to how valuable some human being decides that you are, or you are not!

I’ll leave you with this today. Some of you made your choice for President of the USA, because you hate or don’t like President Trump. You don’t like his “orange skin color”? Aren’t you the same ones shouting out about racism? The same people screaming about how nobody should be judged by the color of their skin?  These same people are the ones who despise DJT, because he has orange color skin (in their words & opinions, not mine). Maybe you decided not to vote for him because he’s a regular guy and not a politician? Or maybe because you don’t like his Tweets??

Well, he wouldn’t have been forced to Tweet, if the press had been a fair Press or had provided balanced news! They fabricated just about everything in order to get money and power! He had to Tweet in order to reach out and talk to the American people! The “non essential workers” is what they called some of us, during this C0v1d19 pandemic. Also, he wanted to reach the “regular” people & families, the Patriots, the Truckers, the Bikers and both blue & white collar workers who added up to about 72 million people in USA, who voted for President Donald J Trump.

No this is not fair! This is not what America is supposed to be about. We should not be known as the looney country with “Hamm3r & Scor3ecard”, which spoiled our entire election! We should not want to be known as the country who cheated and lied to get the mean orange man out of the White House! President Trump is a human being first!! He’s our President, yes, but if you sift through all of the lies and BS that all of the fake news put us through these past 4 years; you’d see it! You’d see that he’s a highly intelligent man. Also he is a loving & respected husband, father and grandfather! Most of all he loves our country and he does truly care about the people living in it.

If you just look at my article from a few months ago, called ” A Sad New Existence” you’ll see a long list of things he got done for our country just between January through March of 2020. If you cut through the crap of the fake news media, you’ll see that he’s signed at least 3, maybe 4 now, Peace Agreements between Israel and Arabic countries. Nobody has ever been able to do that! He’s got a huge list of accomplishments; more than any other President in history! If you would take the time to go and look for yourself on The official website of the White House, you’ll see for yourself.

These are not conspiracy theories. These are true facts. There is much to be looked at and corrected with this recent election. We must have a full audit of our election! The fraud must be & is being exposed! The cheaters must be held accountable! We need to stay a free country, more than you or your child, needs free college classes!

If  Joe were to become the true President elect & then the true & rightful President, I guarantee you that he will be not in that position for long! Their entire goal is to get him to help the radical left & deep state, to get elected. They used his kind looking little old man smile to obtain power of over us and our country! Then you can mark my words, Kama1a will then be President soon afterwards. We are on our way then, one step further to Socialism/Communism. She is the most extreme radical progressive like the squad! Then… next… we will no longer be a Constitutionalized free America. We will be puppets under the control of the C C P regime & the likes of S0rr0s and B1ll Gates.

Look at the photo on left: MI Govern0r Wh1tm3r telling people if they want to be able to go to church and Stop wearing masks etc, then they should vote for J0e!! But J0e says on the right hand side, the first thing he’s going to do is make a “mask mandate” for years!! That’s Just disgusting!!

A Sad New Existence


I have never really been precisely either a Republican or a Democrat.  I vote based on knowledge and who I feel will do their best job for the people of this formerly free country, the USA. You can disagree with me after reading this post. You can choose to never read another one of my articles.  But I’m not mean, selfish, unkind or cruel to anyone, so there is no reason to treat me that way either. I’d like you to just hear me out, since I’m not a “finatic” of either viewpoint. But feel free to just keep scrolling if you don’t like what I’m about to write.

Our President, imho, has done his best from very early on, to save human lives. He stopped travel from China at the end of January, 10 days after the first diagnosed case in the USA. He did this while Nancy Pelosi was Encouraging people to go to Chinatown events in CA on 2-24-20. The radical Democrats were involved in their deep commitment to undo the 2016 election results and they were impeaching the President as he was still working for our Country and trying to keep us safe.  They were impeaching him for a phone call in which the witnesses (who were actually present) and the party on the other end of the telephone call, insisted there was no QPQ.  Every witness who was actually present, corroberrated the fact that there was no Quid Pro Quo involved.

I have never been one to write or chat about politics, especially on my Social media accounts. It’s a “no win” situation because everyone has the right to their opinion. By the way, having the right to voice your own opinion is starting to slip away from us in the USA these days. I’m tired of being silent. But as I start to come out and stand by by own beliefs and try to stand up for what I strongly believe to be true, I’m being verbally abused if I dare speak out against these draconian rules in all but a handful of states.  While they feel free to voice their opinions, they attempt to deny me the right to discuss mine. I never mind having kind and civil discussions.  But if you call me “stupid” or let your “Facebook buddies” call me “ignorant” and/or worse, then I am going to be blocking you. I’m losing my Facebook friends, long time social media buddies, because I dare voice my opinion with data to back it up.

But why should I be surprised? I was a very outspoken and strong advocate for the pain community for many years, from 2008-2018/19.  But since I had an auditory/brain tumor removed surgically, this past Summer 2019; people are “unfriending” me because I’m of no use to them any longer. I have had several commendations (since 2008), for helping others who live with High Impact Chronic Pain due to several various illnesses.  I was awarded a “Special Tribute” from the Governor of Michigan in 2017, along with the U.S. Pain Ambassador of the year award in February of 2017.  I’ve continued posting updated and reliable information to the High Impact/Chronic Pain and RSD/CRPS communities. I try to still lend my support as I’m able in my own support/info groups. There are a few people who have stood by my side and even offered to help me with my groups.  For them, I am eternally grateful and I am blessed to have them in my Life and/or social media life. Some of them have different opinions about politics; but we have managed to separate that and stay friends. The reason I brought this up, is because it seems that in the past few years, people seem to block, berate, degrade, be rude, act abusively and “run away”  from anyone who does not think or feel the same way as they do.

The USA is my country and I’ve always been proud to be an American. I’ve never been and still am not “Right” or “Left”. I guess you could say I’m “Right to center”.  I have voted for Republicans and Democrats in the past. I’m just really sad and tired of seeing this POTUS berated day after day for 3 years now.  He has actually has a great timeline of actions that have been helping with this COVID-19 crisis, including trying to keep us from a big Depression.  Many citizens are tired of hearing how our President “called this virus a hoax and did nothing until March 2020”.  So I did reseach and here are highlights from the timeline during January-March 2020.(the list is so long & full, I only highlighted January-March 2020 *parts of this list are from the White House website & other parts are actual Tweets from the WHO & CDC etc)

It is helpful to look at the actual timeline.  All of this started to happen before the first death linked to COVID19 https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1189286 in the USA.  I got most of the information from the CDC tweets, so anyone can look it up to check for accuracy. There are so many other actions in between but I just took some of the highlights & ended mine at March 31 2020. The first several actions that I’ve listed through 2/29/20, were copied from a friend.  But you can take a look at the entire list here at:  List of all of the things that President Donald Trump has done to help combat the novel coronavirus

As I mentioned above, I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. I base my choices on facts (not hated, fear or other emotions) that I gather from watching and listening to all sides.  But honestly, many people have never given our President a chance.

Lastly, I have been & I am following the rules. I am also praying that someone can save us from something far worse than this virus. There are some things worse to lose than our lives. Losing our liberties, our freedoms and the freedoms for our children & grandchildren is something we need to protect. It was just fine to shut down for a few weeks, but not a few months or longer! Anyone who is afraid to go out, should feel free to stay in the safe, solitary confinement of their homes. Protect the elderly, the sick and the most vulnerable (meaning nursing & other homes for the sick). But we should have a choice, because this is the USA! Last time I checked, we were and are still a free country! When they (Dr Fauci, Kolodny & CDC) took pain meds from the chronic pain community in or around 2016 (with the new CDC guidelines), they removed the freedoms from the physicians & patients to decide what is best for their personal pain illnesses. At that time & ever since; the pain community has tried to fight back. I know this because I’m a part of that pain community.

Now we need to work hard at getting our freedoms back! I didn’t mind staying in my home for a few weeks-(2 months) or wearing a mask for a little while to help stop the virus! But there will be many more viruses to come! I don’t want to stay indoors separated from not only society but family; or wear a mask forever! It causes me anxiety and inability to not only breathe freely- BUT I AM DEAF!! I can’t even communicate with anyone who doesn’t know ASL when you’re all wearing masks!! It also takes away my ability to lipread & try to piece together what you might be saying.

C’mon- we don’t stop flying in airplanes or driving cars because of the possibility of a crash!! Road traffic crashes are a leading cause of death in the United States for people aged 1–54 The CDC website on Death from car accidents 2019

Hell, I survived a catastrophic car accident in 2002! I’m still here after 11 surgeries, lots of high impact chronic pain, a pacemaker (x2), a heart attack and a stroke! Let’s live our best life while we are here! Protect the freedoms for our families! We cannot roll over now! Please read a variety of news articles and watch a variety of News shows! You won’t get the truth from just one!! Put all of the information you receive together and make your own informed decision. If your decision is to wear a mask forever, live in your house and get take-out; then by all means, stay home & stay inside! But if I want to go out, let me make that choice! Don’t allow that to be the choice of our Governors or even the President (*except for a short time during an emergency)!!

Lastly, I’m not being selfish! I’m saying please stay inside if you are afraid or vulnerable. But let it be our choice and not an Executive order from a judge, Governor, President or any radical person with a gavel!
