Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!

Archive for the tag “Catholic hospitals”



I am not a member of the Catholic church but I have many close friends who are devoted members. I deeply respect any religion that helps all people and supports freedom for its members. I have no idea who created this message that I received from my friend Jim Heck who lives in Lufkin Texas. The depth of this “factual” accumulation has an awesome impact on the upcoming election and is just one more reason to elect Donald Trump. The people must ignore the biased media, progressive destruction of our freedoms and stop Washington gone mad. Watching the rich and powerful, Congress, our own Government leadership, the media and even the Supreme Court ignore the laws must be ended. The rush to bring in millions of Muslims is misguided madness. Please share this message before the November elections.   C Brewer 

Charity Hospital run by the Sisters of Charity in New Orleans, along with the Upjohn company developed the plasma system in the 1930’s that saved so many lives in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and in the Middle East now.

During the Civil War most of the nurses were nuns.

Even if you are not Catholic, this is eye-opening:

When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no hospitals. Today, one out of five people in this country receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital.

When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no schools. Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3  million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools.

Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the world.

The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the taxpayers would have to make up the loss.

Also, all Catholic adoption services will come to an end… a human disaster.

There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country.  It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president.

I am asking all of you to go to the polls in 2016 and be united in replacing all Senators and Reps with someone who will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions with perhaps the exception of Islam.

Mr. President, you said, “The USA is not a Christian Nation”. You are wrong – we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to worship and practice freely… something that Islam will never do.

Oh, by the way, on MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America …. Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, know of a Muslim charity, ever seen Muslims shaking hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, or ever seen a Muslim Candy striper volunteering in a hospital? Have you ever seen a Muslim do much of anything that contributes positively to the American way of life?

Let’s circulate this to as many as possible. And remember the elections coming up in 2016!

One more note…..  in every church or synagogue, I have ever been in, in the United States, I have always seen an American flag.

No mosque in the United States displays an American flag!    ANON

Folks this is America. “Land of the free and home of the brave” or it used to be! CB







A very good friend of mine shared a message he appeared reluctant to send to his son. I am lucky that six of my seven children have enough sense to recognize that America is being trashed. Unfortunately, I also have some extremely well educated granddaughters and spouses who will wake up someday and realize how they were so wrong. When their kids can’t look forward to a life equal to them they will then feel sorry for who has to pay for this “government gone wild” spending binge and destruction of the finest healthcare system in the world.

I would send each of them a copy of this message to but I am certain it would not be read as my friend’s son will likely ignore it also. I will not change a word he wrote as I think it is one of the most heartfelt letters I ever read. I will not disclose any names, even to my family.  C Brewer 


“We’ve kept our e-mail exchanges out of the political arena lately.  Unfortunately, it’s not easy to ignore the 1000 pound gorilla in the room, as well as every newspaper, TV newscast and talk show, even the CMA show last night, touched this subject and what a response it got.  So, against my wife’s advice, I’m going to open this can of worms and ask your opinion. I have written down my thoughts and conclusions.  I don’t think I will change any one’s mind; however, they are food for thought.

I understand you position as it relates to our President; it is shared by many millions of loyal and upstanding US citizens (and illegal aliens).  

What I don’t understand is the way the press and those same millions of supporters let him get away with claiming he either didn’t know about any of the recent issues of confidence, the Administration has faced in the past four years.  He claims he didn’t know about: Fast and Furious, the security warnings in Libya (Benghazi), or the extent of NSA eavesdropping on US citizens, welfare and voter fraud, the spying on foreign leaders or the IRS targeting of political action groups. 

(Plausible deniability?) 

As our President, yours and mine, does he still have credibility and your support?

He is claiming he didn’t say things like…..”If you like your health care plan, you can keep it, Period!”  OR, “If you like you doctors or hospital you can keep them.”

It turns out Obama knew that upward of 93 million Americans would have their health insurance canceled, the whole time he was claiming that wouldn’t happen. And, worst of all, it was a political decision, on the advice of White House political advisors, to perpetuate the scam. That is factual!

Even without the 2010 Health and Human Services (HHS) report admitting those 93 million Americans would lose their health insurance, anyone with half a brain (which is a pre-existing condition) knew that millions of Americans would be thrown off their insurance plans under Obamacare. It was also detailed and printed in the 2010, Congressional Record.  That’s how the opposition got wind of some of the potential problems.

Under the law, our federal overseers, led by HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, know what’s best for us. The Secretary is to determine what every health insurance plan must cover; and any plans that don’t are illegal.  And, she had the sole discretion to determine the October 1st, Roll Out date.  Why did she choose to go “live”, without having the programs adequately tested? One theory is the Administration wanted to blame any problems on the Republicans, as the Administration was blaming them for shutting down the government; so, that is what she claimed.  

What is often lost in the fog of war is that Senator’s Cruz and Lee were trying to work up bi-partisan support to delay the implementation, so that the system could be tested and delay any penalties for not enrolling in a program (that wasn’t accepting the vast majority of enrollee’s), for a year.  That ironically is just what at least 14 Democrat Senators (who are up for re-election in 2014) are now proposing.   

You’ll remember that the Act passed both the House and the Senate, without a single Republican vote.

Some of the supposedly unintended consequences of the law are: gay guys are now going to be forced to buy plans that cover maternity care. Mormons will have to buy plans that cover gambling addiction therapy. Elderly couples can buy only insurance that includes pediatric dental care. Catholic hospitals will be required to provide birth control and abortions.  Why?  Because the program needs the young taxpayers to pay the premiums that will support the medical costs of an aging society.  Again, ironically, unemployment is high among 20 and 30 year olds and many young people can’t afford the new plans.  Many of them, along with the poor and elderly are resorting to Medicaid, as their first option, because they don’t have to pay anything up front. 

Health insurance premiums are going through the roof with all these federal mandates. The Cato Institute reports that health insurance premiums will be higher than before Obamacare in at least 45 states — an astronomical 256 percent higher in some cases. The Los Angeles Times says middle-income families in California will pay 30 percent more for health insurance, even with the subsidies, not the $2400 reduction in premiums for most families, as was claimed, during the 2008 election campaign and thereafter. 

Policies are being canceled because any old plan — the one you probably shopped for and liked — is now illegal.  The President is blaming the insurance companies for discontinuing policies that the Act made illegal.

According to the Administration, it is our duty, as a caring human being, to buy an expensive health care plan we don’t really want?

While campaigning for national health care in 2008, candidate Obama repeatedly claimed that a doctor would rather amputate your foot or leg and make $50,000 than treat you for diabetes because “if that same diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that’s $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 — immediately the surgeon is reimbursed.” (Leaving aside Obama’s slander of doctors, Medicare reimburses a surgeon $740 to $1,140 for a leg amputation.)

Under Obamacare, you’ll get a nice, nurse practitioner to attend to your needs — provided your needs are limited to birth control and psychotherapy. Many existing doctors are saying they will retire because they can’t make enough to pay their staff or pay the rent on their suite of offices. We will see a dramatic shortage of qualified doctors and specialists in the next ten years if something isn’t done to correct the situation.

It’s the homework requirement that is the most annoying aspect of Obamacare. Millions of Americans will lose their health insurance and be forced to buy plans they don’t want. And many, many millions will no longer be able to go to the doctor of their choosing — or any doctor at all!

What if Americans don’t want to spend weeks, online, figuring out their new insurance options? What if we don’t want to provide the government with reams of personal information, simply to be able to buy health insurance? What if we just want to pay our doctor directly for a yearly checkup? Why do we have to examine HHS regulations to find out how much that’s going to cost us in fines and taxes? 

Eighty-five percent of Americans were happy with their health care before Obamacare, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, higher than almost any other product or service polled, with even Amazon.com, coming in at 88 percent satisfaction. Even uninsured Americans were as satisfied with their health care as Canadians were with their national health care.

What about those of us who don’t want to be in a constant state of agitation just to get the health care of our choice? Not everyone is better off in a world where the pushy win and the quiet and unassuming die because their rare diseases didn’t attract a band of noisy lobbyists.

No group of government bureaucrats can substitute for hundreds of millions of Americans making individual choices about their own lives and their own health. It would be as if the government took it upon itself to tell us whom to marry.

Only someone who went to Harvard would think central planners should do that. 

The smart people in the Soviet Union tried to centrally plan the nation’s agriculture and the result was 50 years of “bad weather.” And, they were dealing with inert objects — land, seeds and crops.

Our central planners think they can direct something infinitely more complex than farmland: human beings and their individual health needs.

Under Obamacare, as written, the pushy and the connected win, everyone else loses.

Anyway, that’s what I think. It is long and detailed but it is my opinion and opinions are like a** holes, everyone has one!!”
