Palmer - Generosity knew No Bounds. Golf Game Always in Bounds. I Do Not Understand Those Who Depend upon Narcotics. Donald Versus Hillary.

I do not understand why people need to indulge in narcotics and smoke weeds etc. Is their life really so bad they have lost all self-control and self-respect and are so desperate they think altering their mind will permanently solve their issues?

I am from the old school where you respected your parents, did what authorities demanded and did not talk back to police.  Consequently, I grew up partly neurotic, made some mistakes, took control of my life and came out fairly well. Now I am close to the end of my life, continue to be out of step with what are called the norms and glad of it.

I guess this is what happens to a society when you raise young people believing they are entitled to their wants as well as their needs and everything becomes "Pablum" from their education to their life style and diminished responsibilities.

As for myself, I believe the world is better because of America and am saddened by what is happening to the country I love.

As you know, I believe Obama was the wrong president for America and he has left us weakened, confused and at each other's throats.  That is the legacy I will remember him for and not the rose colored crap he would have you believe.
Arnold Palmer, a golfing legend and great humanist passes away after a full life at 87.

Our Orlando granddaughter was born in the hospital named after his wife.  Palmer's generosity knew no bounds. His golf game was always in bounds.
This is a response from a dear friend and fellow memo reader from a doctor to whom he forwarded my "Atlas Shrugged" Ayn Rand, comments. According to this doctor, if you want what he is facing vote for Hillary. (See 1 below.)
I have no problem distinguishing between Hillary and Donald.

If you want government solutions, vote for Hillary.  If you want more taxes, vote for Hillary.  If you want a president with a record of mistakes, poor judgement and who is a basic liar, vote for Hillary.

If you want more of the same and someone cognizant of perpetuating Obama's legacy then  vote for Hillary. If you want to keep Bill in the limelight, vote for Hillary.  If you dislike the way America is being policed , vote for Hillary.  If you believe deficits do not matter and pigeons never come home to roost, vote for Hillary.  If you believe in Socialism then vote for Democrats and Hillary.

If you can put aside Trump's poor taste at times and braggadocio and swallow hard at some of his dumb remarks then he is your man.  Trump has touched the 3rd rail and openly discussed what is on most minds of Americans but whose voices have been stilled by PC'ism.  He has done so in a distasteful manner at times but he has offered solutions, some practical some perhaps not.

He has run a unique and refreshing campaign and proven it can be done on a smaller budget.  He has worked hard at and been tireless delivering his message. He has a basically cheerier outlook and even has a sense of humor and is more of a real person, warts and all.

He has surrounded himself with talented professionals from a variety of fields and should he be elected will , in all likelihood, exceed expectations despite the mass media which will oppose everything he says and does.

I also believe Obama has wrecked the chances of any successor to shine so whomever wins will have a very uphill 4 year struggle to solve our many problems which Obama worsened and even added a few new ones.
Think about this even if Rush said it because he is absolutely correct. (See 2 below.)
 " When  you see that in order to produce,  you need to obtain the  permission from men who  produce  nothing;  when you see that money is  flowing to those  who deal   not in  goods,  but in favor; when you see  that men get rich   more  easily from  graft  than  by work,  and your laws no longer protect you against them , but  protect them against  may know   that your  society is doomed."

This  is  a quote  from Atlas Shrugged.

 "It  came  to  my mind  again  after going to   meeting  this  Saturday at  Piedmont  Hospital  where   bureaucrats  from Washington  told  us  how  we  are to practice medicine   this year  and how  they are going to determine   what  our  pay  and  practice  modes will be. It  was  very scary. Payment will be  for  outcomes.  So  a  thoracic surgeon got up and said how he was  caring  for a  man with  lung cancer who would not  stop  smoking so this man had  many many visits to the doctor and  many episodes of  pneumonia. The  doctor  across the street  not  caring  for this man  has a better  profile  because  this  man  seeking many visits to a doctor ruins his  profile. The patient that weighs  400 pounds and will not lose weight  has  many more complications that the lean  patient and the doctors who care for  obese  patients  have a worse  profile and will be  paid less. This has  come to  fruition already  as  last week I saw  a healthy  20 year old   referred to me  for the first time. She has had  5  eye muscle surgeries in the past and now has seen  5  ophthalmologists  none of whom will operate on her. She is healthy, no  smoking, no cancer and has  good insurance-private. So her father asked me why  none the 5  doctors would operate on his daughter. I explained to him that  his daughter will take at least  2  surgeries  to  get straight eyes and maybe  more and that  this  will ruin the profile of the  ophthalmologist who  cares for her.

So those of you who   want this type of  medicine , vote  for  Clinton.  

After  a few  years of this   type of medicine, most  doctors will lose  their expertise for  caring for complicated  problems  fearing that those  patients will  ruin their  profile..

You all  laughed at me  when I  warned you about Obamacare. Now you see   the results. It is not  too late  to change,That  is if you  care about your  children and  grandchildren. Zane"


2) Rush Limbaugh:

I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound.  No one is really talking about it either, because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11.

 Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country.

 If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.

If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.

 Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs.  If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry.  And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18.  When the child hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.

Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it's not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers.  (Actually, soldiers are put in harm's way by politicians and commanding officers.)

We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting.  In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.

You see where this is going, don't you?  Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country.  It's just really sad.  Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise.  Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing.  Make sense?

 However,our own US Congress voted themselves a raise.  Many of you don't know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month.  And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.  They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn't have to pay into the system.  If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

 I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.
