Here is a picture taken Friday outside where I work. Fridays have been Seahawk gear days for a long time, but yesterday was special. Most of us really can’t believe it, that the Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row!! Every little standup meeting all day yesterday turned into a Seahawks rally. Hubby and I will be making chili and watching the game at home tomorrow.
Here is a news story about a woman in Arkansas who runs a gun range. She has instituted a policy banning Muslims from using her range, due to some behavior by earlier customers. If you ask me, she is exactly right! Remember the flight schools who trained the terrorists who brought down the World Trade Center in 2001? That would be the flight schools who trained those guys to fly, but not to land! Ms. Morgan has already received death threats, as well as threats from the usual suspects (CAIR, ACLU), of lawsuits charging her with discrimination. She will not back down, and more power to her!
Unacknowledged state sponsor of Terrorism, questionable ally. OTL could make time to pay his “respects” to the recently-passed leader of one of the most repressive regimes on Earth.
Victims of Terrorism in France, a real ally. OTL couldn’t be bothered to attend a rally commemorating citizens brutally murdered by Muslim Terrorists.
As if we needed any more reminders of the president’s real sympathies.
Such a simple concept, water flowing straight down a flat surface. Hypnotic. Serenity, in spite of the background noise.
This photo I took at the Seattle Japanese Garden captures it, don’t you think?
Yes, I do. This post was written a couple of years ago, and updated today in 2015. I will be 66 in April, and I just love tossing all the junk mail telling me about everyone’s very best Medicare Advantage or Medi-Gap policy. No serious illnesses, and still at my same employer after seven years. I have not had even one second thought. I’m doing the right thing, and it just gets right-er every day. I love being independent, and self-sufficient. I even paid off my mortgage in 2013, so that expense is gone. One fewer fixed cost every month. Life is good!
I guess that makes me a risk-taker. I am currently 65 years old, and I am now Medicare-eligible. Medicare starts at 65, I can’t draw SS until 66. A couple of years ago, I made the decision to reject both SS and Medicare. I am gainfully employed, and expect to be employed for the foreseeable future. I am VERY fortunate to be married to a man nine years my junior, who has 35 years with his employer, and makes twice what I do. I am covered under his company medical plan, and expect to continue to be. I object to my doctor having to choose treatment for me according to “what Medicare will pay for”. I’m damned if I’ll have some faceless bureaucrat in Washington DC telling my doctor what’s “allowed”.
I’ve already started in a small way, being self-sufficient in health-care. My hubby’s plan has prescription drug coverage, but I do not use it. I take a bunch of prescription medicine for my chronic disease (psoriatic arthritis), and I pay every penny of the cost myself. All my medicines are generic, and I have a great relationship with the Costco pharmacy 6 blocks from my house, so I know I’m getting the best prices. It makes me feel great that my doctor and I, not some insurance company, determine what medicines I take, and how much to prescribe (my doctor writes in quantities of 100, so I get even better pricing).
So my life is free from the worries about having enough money saved for retirement (not retiring!), and how to maximize my Government Dole Payment (Social Security).
Islam is simply an evil religion. Witness what occurred in Paris today.(now, yesterday, updated Friday). This in response to cartoons, for heaven’s sake! Islam’s holy book advocates forced conversion or murder for “apostates” and unbelievers. All over the world, Muslim radicals are murdering innocent civilians, taking hostages in coffee shops, and kidnapping school girls and selling them into slavery. And all over our own country, liberals in the press and even our own president are tying themselves in knots to avoid having to admit the bare, open truth.
Islam is EVIL.
Je Suis Charlie.
**Update on Friday. More heinous murders of Jewish hostages in Paris, by Islamist terrorists. This will not ever stop until all men and women stop appeasing the “religion of peace”, which, by the way, has NEVER been a religion of peace. If you did, or said nothing when they came for the Jews, and the journalists of Charlie Hebdo, they will be coming for YOU next.
The nasty, borderline evil (This war is lost!), outgoing Senate Majority Leader was injured by exercise equipment in his home. No further comment necessary.
