Obamacare forces 93000 hospital job cuts in 2013, NC hospitals costs up $7.5 billion the next 10 years, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, Mass layoffs

“Nobody who makes under $200,000 a year will see their taxes go up as long as I’m president.”…Barack Obama

“I absolutely reject that notion [mandate is a tax].”…Barack Obama

“Glenn Beck has presented the frightening spectre of Christmas past created by Obama. But as in Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”  it is the Ghost of Christmas Future that frightens me. The impact of Obamacare on our health care system and the combined impact of Obamacare and record deficit spending on our economy. The taxes of Christmas future to pay for Obama’s actions.”…Citizen Wells June 30, 2012

By March 26, 2010 I referred to Obamacare as a tax and control bill.

From the Greensboro News Record November 25, 2012.

“Hospitals feeling the pinch”

“Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center launched a distress signal in a gathering storm when it said on Nov. 14 that it will cut 950 jobs.

That storm has at its center national health care reform, possible lower reimbursements for Medicare and Medicaid services, and an increasing number of older patients who need more care.

The hospital industry is in for a direct hit — that’s not in doubt.

But mass layoffs may be only one of many solutions for the health care industry’s problems.

The problem for hospitals is choosing the right one: mass layoffs, refined management techniques or some middle ground.

Wake Forest declined an interview request for this article. But it has said in other accounts that the roughly 6 percent staff cut is a pre-emptive measure for expected budget cuts and rising costs. And it expects remaining workers will become more productive as a result.

That’s a delicate balance, said Mark Graban, a national expert and consultant on health care management who lives in San Antonio, Texas.

“It’s easy to add up the cost savings of reduced payroll,” he said. “But it’s hard to add up the side effect of those layoffs.”

He said layoffs are sweeping the industry. Graban referred to a report from the American Hospital Association that says hospitals will cut 93,000 jobs during 2013.

Wake Forest and other major hospitals across the nation pledge that nurse-to-patient ratios won’t change despite the job cuts. Graban said that simple pledge may only mask lingering problems that hurt the quality of patient care.

Nurses and other professional staff, for example, see the headlines, see friends who may be laid off and work in fear, he said.

“A lot of times, quality and good patient outcomes are a result of nurses and other staff going above and beyond,” Graban said. “My concern would be not that the professionals are going to get lazy, but are they going to continue to be motivated to go above and beyond?”

Across the nation, he said, many medical centers are choosing “no layoff” policies and using management techniques pioneered in industry.

“Lean management” is a term many industries use for a variety of techniques that train workers to improve performance, make fewer mistakes and work with higher morale, he said.

Lean does not mean, as many joke, “Less Employees Are Needed.”

Graban worked with one hospital, ThedaCare in Appleton, Wis., which typifies the technique. The medium-size hospital manages conservatively, he said, doesn’t over-hire workers and saves cash for slow times.

Don Dalton, the spokesman for the N.C. Hospital Association, said hospitals throughout the state are using lean-management techniques — especially the smallest hospitals.

The coming changes could cost North Carolina’s hospitals up to $7.5 billion over the next 10 years , Dalton said.

With limited resources, the state’s small and medium-size hospitals feel financial pressure first, he said. So they are looking for any way they can to operate without compromising service.

Hospitals are combining resources to save money. In some cases, that means nothing more than “group buying” of supplies and services — lower prices for bulk buyers.

On a larger scale, Greensboro’s Cone Health signed a managing partnership earlier this year with Carolinas Health Systems in Charlotte.

Doug Allred, the spokesman for Cone, which employs more than 8,000 people , said: “We do not have plans for any layoffs right now.”

When asked to discuss issues facing the hospital industry in general, Allred said: “We are going to decline” an interview.

Jeffrey Miller, the president of High Point Regional Health System , freely discusses what led to the hospital’s planned merger with UNC Health Care.

He said that many unemployed people in the Triad don’t have health insurance, and those who do find that rising deductibles are too expensive.

“So we have a bad-debt problem,” Miller said.

Federal Medicare reimbursements have declined or remained flat, and the program is asking hospitals to fill out more documents to justify expenses.

And finally, the state, which administers Medicaid programs, is cutting its own stretched budget and program reimbursements.

As a result, High Point Regional has operated at a loss for two years. With its 2,212 workers, the hospital lost $40.8 million on unreimbursed care last year.

“It’s coming at us from all directions,” Miller said.

Through careful expense control, Miller said, High Point has not laid off workers, but it has had to cut hours from time to time to save money — and jobs.

Saving money, changing the way a hospital works, changing the way hospitals work together — all are key issues for UNC Health Care and its subsidiaries, said Karen McCall, vice president of public affairs and marketing for the system.

“We need to reduce costs, and all of us are aware of that and we’re trying to take steps to be able to do that through re-engineering,” she said.

Lean management is a big part of how UNC has managed its hospitals.

“It’s really been a core value at UNC for quite some time.”

UNC is planning for a difficult future, especially the unknown effects of more insured people and a growing population of older people who will need more care.

UNC plans to create a system in which each patient has a “medical home,” or a central doctor and staff that can manage the patient’s total care. That doctor would coordinate care from specialists and a variety of other services.

But getting there, McCall said, means spending more money to upgrade technology.

Finally, UNC is constantly keeping an eye on its employees to make sure their morale is good.

“Having worked very, very hard with patient satisfaction, the key to patient satisfaction is employee satisfaction,” she said. “Employee satisfaction is just very important and it’s something we measure and take into consideration all the time.

“We’re looking for best practices outside the industry,” McCall said. “But I really feel that we’re not the only ones doing that. Everyone in health care looking to the future feels that’s very necessary.””

  1. This is all part of the big plan of the NWO elitists (like Gates and wife) for their goal of population control….esp. to rid the world of the so called “bottom dwellers”….from the beginning of life to the end with the non-producing throw aways in the middle….in order to keep the goodies in the hands of the few. Everything with the NWO will be covered with the “we know what is best for all so trust us…..or else”. The whole population will have to fight back but they’re too lazy and gullible for that now….like boiling frogs won’t even know when they’re dead! Everything is sooo obvious but logic has been missing in our schools’ instruction now for decades.

  2. CW,
    Would you mind, and is it okay, if I re-post my idea on a tactic for exposing eligibility and Horowitz in your new post. I really would like feed back.
    Thanks,

    A reminder about David Horowitz:
    “David Horowitz is exposed as a False-Front Conservative after he derides the American Constitution and its requirements that a US President be a Natural Born Citizen. Then Horowitz proves to be a demagogue by decrying that “63 million people voted for Barack Obama” as being some sort of proof that this Foreign Occupier is legitimate. Finally, Horror-witz proves that the A.C.O.R.N. does not fall far from the Marxist tree by blasting Frank and John as “racists” for disagreeing with the policies of Barack Obama.”

    Gordo, & CW
    Thanks for taking me back to 2009 and CW your Blog suspends a day in history to reflect back to a point in time we all came through. I read every post. Awesome patriots inspired me as did Washington’s 8 year battle with the tyranny of his day.

    OK Lets get down to a possible new tactic. Horowitz could be a focus point for this tactic and co-creating a tipping point. Here is why I think so.

    1. He is high profile once Lefty Lib supposedly now Mighty Right-ly Conservative well known on both fronts.

    2. As a Mighty Right-ly Conservative he he laid claim to a position on eligibility. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1208/16306.html ( Thanks Gordo)

    3. Eligibility is a high profile issue with many possible bad outcomes and lots of downsides for the regime.

    Now the tactic:

    There is only 3 positions any individual can take on eligibility or Natural Born Citizen.
    Born of two citizen parents on soil, any other definition, or present (Obama’s favorite senate position).

    We only concern ourselves with Born of two Citizen Parents on Soil and eliminate the other two positions.

    We start a list of individuals and they express there personal reasons why. This directly or indirectly responding to Horowitz exposing foolish position on eligibility. ( this format Blog, website, etc. to be determined)

    High profile well known individuals, as well as everyday unknown patriots like myself, and others can also participate. We express our own thoughts, opinions, and ideas why we know the original intent of the Natural Born Citizen clause in the Constitution. Absolutely no descending opinions allowed.

    Now this is a public list that millions of people can read and re-read, it supports only the concept of Natural Born Citizen is born of two citizen parents on soil. This educates, motivates and inspires passion in love of country and joy and pride and connection to birthrights.

    As the list grows more and more names of high profile individuals will cause peer pressure and even shame for Horowitz and his claim to his position. The list of real conservative patriots and there reasons will expose the Mighty Right-ly conservative his position, in his mind will be shamed, and unsustainable, exposing to himself and other he always was lefty lib. Or better yet he could change his position.

    I have lots more thoughts but wanted to get feed back from everyone on their thoughts on the idea.
    Did not intend to make it such a long post.
    Please accept my apologizes,
    Sandy

  7. As we can see from the past four years, when you’re a community organizer with no real corporate or senior level executive government management experience, and when your key advisers—including your Attorney General and Solicitor General—see no evil in your political sins, you will have the trappings of absolute power.

    snip…..
    After Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made the following statement about not deploying troops without the intel that says its a good idea, career military people began talking. What they had to say suggests someone in Washington needs to be fired, and someone else needs to be impeached. The quote attributed to Panetta was: “…the basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on, without having some real-time information about taking place. And, as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

    However, when Gen. Carter Ham, head of Africom, received the same emails that Panetta, Clinton and Obama received, he assembled a rapid response unit and informed Panetta he was ready to go. Ham was ordered to stand down. He told Panetta to screw himself, telling the Secretary that he was sending his men in. Less than one minute later Lt. Gen. David Rodriquez told Ham—his boss—he had just been relieved of his command because he refused to obey a direct order from the Commander-in-Chief. Obama then appointed Rodriguez as the new head of Africom. Now you know precisely who gave the order to “stand down” that resulted in the sacrificial death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, IT Specialist Sean Smith and former Navy Seals Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods for “political points.” (It is my personal opinion that any US citizen who votes for Barack Obama needs to forever refrain from ever again referring to themselves as someone who is even remotely patriotic.)

    (Note: the Obama Administration also lied when it said that Doherty and Woods were assigned to personally protect Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi. That was a blatant fabrication. The former Seals, attached to the CIA, refused the White House order to “stand down.” They went to the Consulate and defended the mission with their lives. While neither man was on active duty in the US Navy at the time, both men deserve the US Congressional Medal of Honor for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. If Gov. Mitt Romney prevails against the stolen votes that will be the only thing that puts Obama back in the White House, I hope he retroactively reinstates Doherty and Woods and awards both the Congressional Medal of Honor. American warriors who die protecting Americans on American soil in foreign lands need to be honored for their bravery.)

    Before believing the blatant donkey kong excreted from both sides of Obama’s mouth whenever he speaks, pay attention to the stream of emails from Stevens in Benghazi and the CIA in Tripoli sent repeatedly to the State Department, the White House, the Pentagon and the CIA which confirm that on September 11, 2012 as the terrorist strike on the US Consulate began, the White House Situation Room, the Secretary of State, the CIA, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs and the Director of the CIA—and, for what he’s worth, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, retired USAF Lt. Gen. James Clapper who, in the end, is going to be expected to fall on his is Air Force Academy saber for Obama on this one, probably just before the Election as more Americans realize it was Obama himself who gave the “stand down” order. Clearly, the Benghazi mess is not going to go away anytime soon—particularly since the Obama Administration and the Democratic leadership has assured the media that this issue is much too serious to “rush through” before the election. Win or loss, you can bet that on Nov. 7, the Benghazi affair will be protected by Executive Privilege. Hearings in the House—and in the Senate if the GOP picks up enough seats to regain control—will once again be stonewalled by the most “transparent Administration in the history of the United States” (Obama’s words).

    Word for day “Taqiyya”

    A project of People For the American Way dedicated to monitoring and
    exposing the activities of the right-wing movement. LEARN Corsi: Obama
    Practicing ‘Taqiyya’ and Sending ‘Secret Communications’ to Muslims

    SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Friday, 10/19/2012 1:15 pm

    In an interview with VCY America’s Vic Eliason, Jerome Corsi argued that
    President Obama is a secretly gay Muslim who is practicing “taqiyya” to
    conceal his Muslim faith. Corsi has earlier claimed that Obama was
    married to his male Pakistani roommate and joined Trinity United Church
    of Christ because of its Down Low Club to have sex with other men whom he later had killed, according to Corsi’s anonymous sources.

    He appeared on Eliason’s show to discuss his new WorldNetDaily article
    which says Obama wears a Muslim ring, and Corsi told Eliason that Obama is using the ring to send a secret communication, like it’s a wink-wink and with you, to Muslims. In Islam, taqiyya which is a practice, is OK
    for believers in Islam to mislead infidels, Corsi asserted, in Islam the
    high point of taqiyya would be to communicate to believers that that’s
    what you’re doing and that’s what I think this ring could easily do.

    Corsi went on to maintain that Obama is not a Christian but a Muslim who
    is ushering in radical Islam through the Muslim Brotherhood, and also
    gay.Unfortunately, Corsi had a bad connection and parts of the interview are difficult to make out, but listen as Corsi charges Obama with practicing taqiyya and working with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    It’s almost like it’s a secret communication, like it’s a wink-wink and
    with you. In Islam, taqiyya which is a practice, it is okay for
    believers in Islam to mislead infidels. So in other words you can lie,
    you can say you’re Christian if that serves your purposes and in Islam
    the high point of taqiyya would be to communicate to believers that
    that’s what you’re doing and that’s what I think this ring could
    easily do.

    I don’t see anything in the way Obama lives, the way he professes
    through his actions and his life that would indicate to me that he is a
    Christian. He joined Trinity Church but as I pointed out he joined
    Trinity Church for political reasons and I’ve been writing extensively
    about Obama being a homosexual, and there are people at Trinity Church going on the record saying he is homosexual and the whole deal with Rev. Wright [inaudible] had what he called a ;Low Down Club; [sic] of men in the congregation who were having sex with other men and found them wives so they can continue to live a life of duplicity, pretending to be married. Obama I think joined Rev. Wright for the utility to him not because it reflected an epiphany or a conversion.

    [Inaudible] He doesn’t even seem to have any attachment to the
    fundamental principles of Christianity, when you listen to somebody like

    George W. Bush it was obvious that George W. Bush was a Christian, he understood the principles of Christianity, he had accepted Jesus Christ into his life [inaudible], and I don’t see any indication that Obama has done any of that. Then look at Obama’s behavior, as you pointed out earlier Obama does nothing with national prayer day, he does not have a Christian congregation in Washington, he would occasionally go to a Christian church service, and yet he has Ramadan dinners in the White House and seems to be very conversive in all the Muslim holy days [inaudible]. On June 4, 2009 I was in Israel at the time, and Obama said he experienced Islam on three continents.

    Obama’s policies in the Middle East are very much antagonistic to
    Israel; he backed the Arab Spring, which I do not think is a democracy
    movement. Obama is ushering in radical Islam through the Muslim
    Brotherhood. Judging by his policies, I would say Obama at least is
    comfortable with and has much more of a shift toward Islam, he always
    has, he did in Chicago. Whereas I don’t see any indications that Obama
    lives a life of a Christian

  11. The lost VILLAGE IDIOT can only remain in power if he is ALLOWED to remain in power by our COMPLACENT,DISINTERESTED, LAZY, FREELOADERS…….which is the PRIMARY reason why NOTHING has been done ,and in all probability NOTHING WILL BE DONE. So enjoy and SAVOR ALL the freebies,because it is going to come to a screeching halt very soon.

  12. hapnHal: Whereas I don’t see any indications that Obama
    lives a life of a Christian
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I would think, with Obama having commie atheist grandparents as well as same for mother, (along with any possible father…take your pick) that he wasn’t ever even baptized prior to any such possible function by the rev. wright. And that, with the “counseling” of said rev. to mix or hide zero’s muslim roots behind his version of christianity, was completely invalid. Rather his thinking and actions are diabolical instead….and the future will show even more of that in fact.

    You are half right, oldsailor!

    I’ve been trying to gather my thoughts and express my words in such a way that makes sense to those here. The VILLAGE IDIOT can also remain in power because “WE THE PEOPLE” acknowledge his power, when in TRUTH he is a usurper! He is not legit! He’s bogus! In other words… there IS NO 44th PRESIDENT!

    And now, come January, THERE WILL BE NO 45th president either! Get my drift?

    I suppose you could say we are without a president. We have been without one for 4 years, and we will be without one for 4 more.
    Wouldn’t be so bad, I suppose, except an imposter can do a hell of a lot of damage to our Republic.

    Am I making sense anyone?

    Bottom line, he is not my president. He never has been and never will be. I DO NOT AKNOWELDGE him as the 44th or the 45th until he shows me an unaltered BC with BOTH parents listed as NBC.

    Not holding my breath.

    ‘Automatic IRA’

    With the issuance of the White House 256-page Budget Proposal for Fiscal Year 2013, the Obama administration endorsed “Automatic IRAs,” a plan introduced into Congress in 2010 by Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass, and Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., in which private companies would be automatically enrolled into government-mandated IRAs, forcing those businesses to contribute on behalf of their employees a “default amount” equal to 3 percent of an employees pay, unless an employee specifically opts out of the plan.

    The FY 2013 Budget proposal notes that currently 78 million working Americans, roughly half of the work force, lack employer-based retirement plans.

    And we all know where all that loot will wind up…..paying off union thugs and acorn types for votes….another slush fund to rob.

  15. “PRAVDA: ‘COMMUNIST’ OBAMA REELECTED BY ‘ILLITERATE SOCIETY'”

    “Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them.

    Obama gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He [is planning his next illegal and undeclared stealth war as a world-wide nuclear war against the United States of America and Israel] with Iran as he fires or demotes USA generals who get in the way.

    Obama is a without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance.

    They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

  16. I was enjoying being able to again read posts and respond occasionally. But as the new top post is regarding the state of healthcare in the USA, I do have some information to contribute that I was not planning to do.

    The reason I could not contribute here or continue with other ventures for the last 2+ years is that my elderly mother moved near me. She was not sickly – very healthy even – but she needed constant care and attention nonetheless. She was so independent and proud that she refused things she really needed – like a walker and Lifeline. But she did call me every night at 9pm to say goodnight – that was our safety feature, small at it was.

    About 2 months ago, I did not get the call. We live 9 minutes away and were there in just about that time. She had fallen and broken her pelvis. The orthopedic specialist told me in the hospital that me mother really was a miracle for her age. No arthritis. She took no drugs save for a daily aspirin and some vitamins. He expected that if she followed his instructions, she would make a full recovery. This required 6 weeks in rehab and more work at home. Full recovery in 3 months.

    We searched around, and the best rehab in our area turned out to be the place closest to our house. Medicare only pays for 20 days in rehab, so we checked her extended insurance that she had been paying dearly for and were pleased to discover that it covered up to 100 days. We were thinking that this may end well.

    She was everyone’s favorite person in rehab – kind and nice to everyone. She was trying so hard to do everything asked of her – she new her prognosis was good and wanted to eventually go home. Her favorite physical therapists even turned her into a Giants fan for the World Series.

    On Wednesday, October 31 – rehab called me to tell me that my mother was to be released the next Saturday. That would be exactly the 20 days rehab that Medicare pays for. There was no way she was ready to be released.

    We went there, thinking that they did not understand that she had extended insurance. We were wrong. We were told by authoritative types that her extended insurance now goes by Medicare rules – I am guessing thanks to Obamacare – and as she is not progressing as fast as expected – she needs to be released. What? She was progressing. What the heck does that mean anyway?

    The Powerful People left, after giving us this bad news, and the nurses and aides were almost crying. I asked the nurse we were closest to if this happens a lot now. She said, “Yes, most recently to my Grandfather.”

    In case this was true, we had already done some research and realized that if we had to bring my mother home, we could get her 24 hour nursing care – which she would need for about $250 a day – until her pelvis healed. My mother being very sharp, knew something was up. We had to tell her that her insurance was worthless, likely thanks to Obamacare, but not to worry we would have everything in place at her house when she got home. We left hoping we had convinced her – she seemed resigned that it would work out – and was smiling – but we to go as we had a lot to do by Saturday.

    That was the last time I saw my mother alive. I got a call at 6:30 am the next morning that my mother had been rushed to the hospital and a call about 30 minutes later that she had passed.

    No one will every be able to convince me the stress of this did not kill her – I think she just gave up. Please check yours or your parents extended medical insurance and make sure it is not tied to Medicare rules.

  17. Ladyhawke,

    I am so very very sorry for your loss. God bless you and comfort you.

  18. Air Force Brat!

    Oh Ladyhawke, I cried when I read your post. Your sweet mother is no longer suffering, but that will be only small comfort for some time to come. She should have had several more years with you, and enriching the lives of all those around her.

    May Obama reap the fate he deserves, either in this life or at the Throne of God.

  19. Sueq………………..
    Now you are thinking exactly the same as me. I KNOW that he has NEVER legally changed his name back to Obama. Since a person by the name of Obama was elected he cannot be the legal POTUS he is still legally Barry Soetoro. I have many times prayed that somebody would do exactly as I and two others spent a year and a half doing. It was extremely boring,but with every query we became wiser and wiser. The others were two employees of a court clerk’s office. They both know the exact procedure for searching Superior Court archives. Admittedly we were pretty slow at getting the job done, but we did complete it. To date there is absolutely NO DOCUMENTED evidence of a legally adjudicated name change petition having ever been filed by Soetoro,in any of the Superior Courts,in the entirety of the US,Hawaii,or Alaska. This covers the interim period from 1980 to 2000. A legally adjudicated name change becomes PUBLIC INFORMATION IN ALL STATES. It is then only a matter of searching the PUBLIC INFORMATION DATABASES. They are very quick to enter court GRANTED NAME CHANGES. So to anybody who thinks this is HOT AIR I simply say “go there and do as we done” unless HE/SHE is TOO lazy, or too stupid, or both. Further NO COURT in the US would ever adjudicate a petition for name change without having in their hands a CERTIFIED copy of an existing legal long form BC. Therein lies the reason why the name change has NOT HAPPENED. Further I am very doubtful that he is legally married to MOOOOCHELLE either. Without a certified copy of a existing legal BC he would not be able to legally marry in the US. I stand upon the accuracy of the information found in the databases,and the Superior Court archives………which was a resounding 0 evidence.

  20. Ladyhawke……………..
    My heart goes out to you…….I have been through it, it hurts like He##, but it will diminish. We all are with you spiritually……you are not alone.

    He can’t legally FIRE anybody, he does not have the authority,he is Barry Soetoro,and NOT Barack H.Obama. If the Generals,and Admirals allow this to happen then they are mentally ,and morally to damn weak to hold top echelon positions to begin with,and need to be weeded out.

  22. HE IS A PHONEY FROM THE WORD …GO!

    Ladyhawke, you have my most heartfelt condolences. My tears are genuine and I pray for you and your mother tonight. It seems we are all in God’s hands now.

  24. …..IF THE SHERIFF OF DC WAS GIVEN A COURT ORDER TO ARREST SOETORO, THE SECRET SERVICE AND EVERYONE AROUND HIM WOULD BE FORCED TO “STAND DOWN” WHILE THE SHERIFF ARRESTED HIM. YET THERE IS PROBABLY NO JUDGE AT ANY COURT LEVEL WHO WILL DO A DAMN THING. BUT BOY WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS AND ALL OF HIS BASTARD SUPPORTERS ARE BEING ARRESTED IN DROVES THE JUDGES WILL WHINE,CRINGE AND WRING THEIR HANDS ” WE DIDN’T KNOW “, WE DIDN’T KNOW……..THEY WILL WHINE,CRY,AND MOAN……..THEN EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM SHOULD BE TREATED TO AN EDUCATION TO BE ADMINISTERED DURING THEIR PRISON SENTENCES OF ….LIFE.

  25. Dear Ladyhawke, Please accept my prayers and deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. Losing someone we love is hard enough but your difficult circumstances make your grief that much harder. Please know that her love will always be with you as your love is with her. Love never dies.

  26. Ladyhawke,

    I was so very sorry to read of your dear Mom’s passing.

    You, your family, and your beloved Mom are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless and comfort you.

  27. Everyone, I am crying still after I read all your heartfelt messages. I appreciate all of them. I cannot believe that I live in a country that is likely killing off the elderly – even those with means. The only good news I can find in Obummer being re-elected is that the news of that would have likely killed my mother, and she does not have to suffer that news as we all must.

    I hope she is now haunting him.

  28. Oldsailor…..you are a true gem and many of us in here appreciate all the efforts you have made to ‘out’ this usurper. Your love of country will never be in question in this site!!!

    Ladyhawke….I’m so very sorry for your loss. I have a friend who is only 64 and I won’t go into too much detail, but she was healthy and active until a few years ago. Then, all of a sudden, she went through some medical issues, & some that were so severe that she needs to be rushed to emergency once in a while. Because of the new regulations, the hospital, knowing she needs a certain kind of care, is reluctant to re-admit her for anything that they more recently admitted and discharged her for earlier. I fear this is only going to get far worse once O’care is fully implemented, but I feel very bad for you in losing your mom like that. Maybe some of our so-called ‘congressional representatives’ need to hear these kinds of stories by the thousands. Their policies are killing people and the blood is on their hands and O’s too.

  29. A Crazy Old Coot

    I “still” wonder just what is Mr. obama’s legal name. He was adopted as a child and that would give him a new legal name. When and where did he re-aquire his (supposed) birth name???? If the name he is signing bills into law with is actually a AKA, is the laws valid? I say no!!

    Just the opinion of a dumb ole (Natural Born Citizen) country boy.

  30. Thistle, I am sorry for your friend. I wish I could wave my magic wand and make America the USA again and help her. I am afraid that I might be out of answers – but not by any means willing to give up looking for them!

  31. Ladyhawke,
    After reading about the loss of your dear mother and the surrounding circumstances, I am speechless and sick at heart. I know what it is to care for an elderly loved one (I’m in that senior category myself now, however).

    So sorry to hear of her untimely passing, and be assured that you have my deepest sympathy and prayers. This is such a difficult time for you.

    Now we are beginning to see the ravages of this diabolical so-called national health-care plan, and I fear that this is only the beginning. God help us!

  32. Ladyhawk. I am saddened by your Mom’s passing. I’m sorry for your loss. Make sure that those people that released her know what happened. Maybe hire an attorney. I’m sorry.

  33. cabby,

    You and i have had many chats over the years and I appreciate your prayers – and you get it that times have changed for the worse. My mother would have appreciated your insight.

    My mother would also want us to fight for the USA. I am just not sure anymore where to wield that fight. I want to show up at that fight – someone just please direct me. I will show up!

  34. Ladyhawke,
    I do have fond thoughts of your sharing the pleasant times you spent after your mother moved near you. She was so happy to have your fellowship.

    Yes, it is so frustrating to see our country being usurped by an evil person and to have that helpless feeling of not knowing exactly where to direct our
    efforts. Our cause seems so leaderless on a national scale.

    We need a Moses or a Gideon. I haven’t heard anything from Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely (Ret.) lately. He seemed to be a person of leadership on the side of patriots.

    I think we can forget politicians, unless it would be someone like Herman Cain, or, perhaps, Lt. Col. Allen West now that it looks as though he will not be returning to Congress. He understands in an unusual way the communist and islamic threats we face, and he has had two years’ hands- on experience as to how Congress works.

  35. Ladyhawke.
    God bless.

  40. Good morning Zach, et al

  41. Ladyhawke – I don’t comment here very much, but today I am moved by your experience with your mother. My deepest condolences on the loss of your mom.

    To me, it sounds like your mother made the decision on her own terms, and denied the FRAUD the power over her life. I hope that helps you cope knowing your mom won.

  42. Ladyhawke,
    My condolences to you.
    It saddens me to hear about your mother, yet I am angered at the system that allows our elderly to languish in such a heartless manner. What’s the point of paying for additional medical insurance that supplements Medicare coverage if that extended insurance now adheres to Medicare rules?
    Can you tell us the name of the insurance provider that denied your mother extended care so that we here can be forewarned?

  43. If the Generals,and Admirals allow this to happen then they are mentally ,and morally to damn weak to hold top echelon positions to begin with,and need to be weeded out.

    There are ‘ways’ used by the Chicago bastards and lowlifes to get what they want.
    In fact, there are ways you and I couldn’t even imagine 20 years ago. :-(

  44. Get the fraulent undocumented treasonous president in jail and do away with Obamacare. What is the U.S. Military waiting for? They need to get him under -, Military Malfeasance regarding handing off weapons to Al Qaida or plans to, going into Libia without congress approval and acting under UN and NATO and not the U.S. congress. the U.S. Military need to do it since congress and the U.S. Supreme Court won’t.
