Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 2nd,2014

.. the sooner this outbreak can be beaten , though , the better . It is going to get worse here in the U.S. before it gets better . There will be more cases , and in more parts of the country …

.. Different industries [funeral homes , cemeteries , crematories , hospitals , sanitoriums , etc] will have to take precautions . Yes , you saw me type out the ” s ” word : sanitorium … They were extraordinary effective in helping to combat tuberculosis . They can be again , especially in a public health emergency , if needed …

… C.P.A.C. — Dr. Benjamin Carson …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 15th,2014

.. this is the C.P.A.C. address of retired neurosurgeon and emergent conservative republican Dr. Benjamin Carson …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..

.. [link] to Dr. Carson ‘ s speech ..

.. Benjamin Carson is an emerging force on the national stage . Whether he will run for office is ,  to be honest , entirely up to him . But someone with his credentials would be a firecracker jim dandy of a candidate , no matter what office he decides to run for  .

.. I think that eventually that he will run for office . I hope that he does , because , more than anything , he has a great deal to contribute to our national scene …

… Barbaric and Inhumane …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 23rd,2014

.. it is that simple .

.. it is the treatment being given to 15 year old Justina Pelletier ,  the teenager from Connecticut who a year ago had her life turned upside down by the idiots at Boston Children ‘ s Hospital . Boston Children ‘ s is normally one of the best hospitals in the country , but it butted in the way of one  of  its doctors , who is a specialist in the illness that Justina has [more on it later] . Tufts University Medical Center , who had been surpervising her care , recommended that her parents go see the specialist at Boston Children ‘  s . That is where loonyland got started ….

..  Boston Children  ‘ s people though that Justina ‘ s illness was psychosomatic (basically , a mental illness) . They called the Massachusettes Department of Children and Families and then stepped in with both feet . B.C. took over her case , and M.D.C.F. took her parents to court , and had her parents stripped of her custody , in effect accusing them of severe child abuse …

.. Well , what she is suffering from is certainly not child abuse . It is gross misconduct by B.C. , and the gross abuse of power by the M.D.C.F. .

.. What she has is mitochondrial disease [“M” disease] . With “M” disease , organelles that generate energy for the individual cell in  the body malfunction for some reason  . There are a number of other illnesses that are related to this . I am a Type II diabetic , and diabetes myeletus is an offshoot of it . It is no joke . It is a very serious matter .

.. DM (what I have) can be treated , but , alas , it cannot be cured . with DM , it is principally centered in the pancreas , where the insulin is manufactured , or with Type I diabetics , is not made at all . With mitochondrial disease , the effects of this are felt in systems of the body all over the place . You name it , it is affected …

.. Michael Graham , who is a conservative curmudgeon columnist at the Boston Herald , and who is a Boston – area talk show host , is all over this . I would recommend keeping up with a very good Google search , or directly with Michael ‘ s own site , at MichaelGraham.com …. I am going to link to it , and to several things that Michael has on his site about the Pelletier case .

.. It is only now that people with Mitochondrial disease can get more rigorous treatments . No , they cannot be cured , not at least as of yet . But gene therapies are helping a great deal . Justina lead a largely normal life with their help . She and her 25 – year old sister [who has a lesser form of the illness] both have grown up relatively normally , in Justina ‘ s case , until M.D.C.F. stuck its nose in and stripped her custody away .

.. She needs this treatment . I watched the interview with her father Louis on the ” Kelly File ” with Megyn Kelly on the FoxNewsChannel on this evening [Thursday //02/20/2014] . My thoughts were …. my god , what the  hell is going on ? and what is going to happen to this girl . Without proper treatment , she will eventually die , I am convinced of that .

… Dr. Ben Carson : Under the Microscope …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 15th,2014

Carson said audits and other harassment began in May or June of 2013 and gradually expanded to include family members, associates, and his charitable endeavors.

“I’ve been quite I would say astonished at the level of hostility that I have encountered,” Carson said in an exclusive interview with host John Bachman on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV.

“The IRS has investigated me. They said, ‘I want to look at your real estate holdings.’ There was nothing there. ‘Well, let’s expand to an entire [year], everything.’ There was nothing there. ‘Let’s do another year.’ Finally, after a few months, they went away. But they’ve come after my family, they’ve come after my friends, they’ve come after associates.”

“You know,” Carson told Newsmax TV, “we live in a Gestapo age, people don’t realize it. But what I say is the Congress has to, at some point, step up to the plate. The reason we have divided government is if one branch of the government gets out of control, starts thinking they’re too big for their britches, you need to be able to have control.”

Carson said the audits, which began a few months after his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast, marked the first time he had been audited in his life.

He also said a charitable organization that aids inmates’ children was informed last year, for the first time in recent years, that they would no longer be receiving a $1 million annual grant from the Justice Department.

“This is solely because you were involved?” Bachman asked.

“Correct,” Carson replied, adding: “…They’ve come after my children in terms of their employment and things like this.”

… Another Spot – On Shot by Dr. Charles [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 1st,2013

.. this one is a continuation of the antics of the government over the last 50 years …

.. Also , it is a result of the Law of UnIntended Consequences , resulting from the adoption of the ObamaCrapCare bill . These idiots never seem to learn that their actions have consequences , and because of them , what happens results in the opposite effects from what they wanted to happen . Duuuh !!! ….

[link] — video clip from the Special Report with Bret Baier panel .

.. These morons use the reductions in reimbursements to doctors and hospitals to finance their Rube Goldberg contraption . Then , when things start to happen , like when hospitals choose not to participate in the ObamaCrapCare networks , or , when the State Exchanges exclude them , and some of them go kaput ! , well , duh !! …

.. Also , they do the same with reimbursement payments to doctors . They expect from their economic analysis that the same or greater #s of doctors will continue to practice . Then , when multitudes of doctors leave the profession , or choose to retire , they are shocked , yes , shocked by the action . Then they wonder why the newly insured cannot find a doctor to treat them .

.. Dummies , if you want medicine to function properly , you need to reintroduce market ecconomics into the system . That includes the functions where the government participates in the system . You think medical inflation in the private sector is the result of the private sector . It is not , stupid . It is because of 50 years of low – ball cheapskating by governments that the inflation comes privately . What do you expect ?

… Sorry , Folks …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 10th,2013

… It is what happens … when one is sick , especially with a serious illness . In my case , it is two of them . MRSA and Cellulitis . …

… Yeeow . Neither one of them is easy to fight . I had to do so at the same time . thankfully , I am doing much better . I still have to pace myself , though , and be more careful about what I am doing , and how much I do it , while I continue to gain strength …
