Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!

A story my friend Allan Moore shared that will get older people like me to appreciate. It should get the attention of everyone. I hope you share this with your friends, I just did. CB

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80’s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health.

He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.

He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him, you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’

He smiled as he patted my hand and said, she doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.

I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought,

That is the kind of love I want in my life. True love is neither physical, nor romantic.

True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

I wish I knew who wrote this to give them credit they so richly deserve.

Sometimes there is a message like this one that my old friend Allan Moore sent me that has an important message.

The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

‘Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.’ We are all getting Older and Tomorrow may be our turn.



Now that Congress has agreed to pay all government employees for any time lost while the President and Congress entertain us with their game of “CHICKEN”. Why don’t the lazy employees go back to work? It appears Obama issued orders for them not to report for work until he wins the battle with power rather than common sense. Oops, I forgot “Common Sense” died in January 2009 if not before. By the way, “Leadership” was buried in the same casket.

Obama just announced that 200 FEMA employees were recalled to prepare for the disturbance in the gulf and now that the storm is over 100 will have to be furloughed again. Why is anyone not working if they will be paid for any time they are furloughed period?  Earlier this morning it was reported that the 800 square mile Florida Keys National Park has not only been closed but they have doubled the number of Park Service employees to make sure that the thousands of private businesses can’t be opened and making sure that visitors are turned away so they can’t purchase merchandise or services like fishing charters.

Overreaction is obviously by the direct orders of the President to save face and make people miserable. The issue at the World War II memorial last week was one of the dumbest actions by the President since he sacrificed American lives in Libya to assure he was re-elected.

My opinion of the value and dedication of government employees loyalty and performance was not very high before the latest war of who can be the most stubborn, Congress or Obama. The country would be better off if we shut the entire federal government down, fire Congress and the President and let the State Governors take over all government operations. Then let the military protect us from our enemies without working for an ex-Staff Sargent and a pot smoking President.

Folks, the current government is a bigger enemy of the people than all of the Muslim extremist that exist in the world. The sane Egyptian people at least have a military that protects them from the extremist government politicians. If sanity does not reappear in Washington pretty fast maybe the Egyptian Army would help us?

American politics, politicians, the federal courts and the main stream media are totally out of control. Sadly nothing is being down and those listed do not even care about the people. Even “Mules”  can live with each other without constant combat and dissent and we call them stubborn.
