medicare5[“Medicare being charged for bogus leg x-ray”] The hospitals and doctors are the biggest rip offs to Medicare. I got copies of bills for prostatic devices ($75,000) my Dad did not get nor need, doctor consultations not conducted ($500 a pop). The doctor would not even speak to me about it and kept billing for the unpaid portion after his death. My Dad also got copies of bills for my Mom with dates of treatment after her death. My RN sister-in-law told me that whenever someone is terminally ill all the doctors stick their heads in the room and then charge Medicare for anything they can think of. The doctors actually make a point of going into ICUs and the versions of ICUs where the terminally ill are “babysat.” I make this comment to make a point that you should always check out the paperwork and contact Medicare and advise them of this thievery so there are funds available for people when it’s actually needed. Also call the hospital and doctor and complain your ass off! They also pull this same crap when you’re involved in a car accident and they want to rip off your insurance company. Doctors were coming into my husband’s room and commenting on work they did not even perform., i.e., facial stitches. My husband kept telling the doctor he had no facial injuries and insisted he stop coming into his room. I had to call our auto insurance company and tell them who the doctor was and not to pay him anything. I also called the doctors office and gave him hell.
It’s comforting to know that at least one person is reading my humble posts unedited.
The law is a tricky beast
to tackle. Trials, witnesses, evidence and precedent are all part of a complicated system that should hopefully result in justice. Sometimes, there are misunderstandings and difficult waters to navigate. But what happened to the West Midlands Police Department was absolutely ridiculous. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) repeatedly contacted the department, hoping to get an account of an altercation from Officer PC Peach. PC Peach was unavailable to give a statement, but that didn’t stop the CPS. Neither did the fact that Officer Peach is a K9 officer. Frustrations were mounting on each side, so the department gave in an sent the attached statement.Although it was meant as a joke, The Professional Standards Department will be investigating the police department after the false statement. Obviously, someone should be examining the prosecutors who couldn’t understand why a German Shepherd couldn’t give a statement. Good dog!

[Friday Joke] A woman was unhappy with the way her laundry was done at the local Chinese laundry, so she wrote a note and put it in the bag with the next collection of soiled clothes: “Use more soap on panties!”She got the clean laundry back, and was still dissatisfied with the results, so the following week she enclosed another note: “Use more soap on panties!”
The Chinese laundryman became very annoyed, and when her clean laundry was delivered, it contained a note from him: “I use plenty soap on panties. Use more paper on butt!”
Our two Mount Trashmores, Stock Island and Cudjoe have shrunk down to about half the height  they were allowed to grow to.  I have always pondered the reasoning underlying their original establishment in a place like this.  Anybody know why the stuff wasn’t hauled out of here to a more appropriate place like it is now?  Was it pure spite on the part of someone?

[“Separate section for conspiracies“] If you had a separate section for all the whackos here, the gun nuts, the Obama haters, Obama sycophants, tree huggers, Iguana killing, sewer pundits, Jersey girls obsessed, UFO seeing, Islamophobic, ‘murica lovin, war mongering, pansy ass peaceniks, astrology/voodoo/Jesus on toast believing, substance abusing, one-trick pony political douches and the genuinely mentally disturbed, what the hell would be left? Only the person who used to post the astronomy update and he doesn’t even post here any more. Add to that all those whack jobs’ posts get put through the Deer Ed transmutation editing machine and its no wonder things look like they do here.max5
But really, those Jersey girls are large!

[“Extension Service and dying sea grapes“] Really, if you thought you were dying would you want to be diagnosed long distance? There isn’t one simple answer to the question. The Extension agent and her squad of Master Gardeners provide a valuable, educational, free service to help you with your plant problems. Take advantage of it

turd poop smelly
is it really better to scoop your pet poop and put it in a plastic bag which doesn’t degrade and throw it in a 50 ft tall, 150 degree mountain where it turns into who knows what, waiting on a huge hurricane or tsunami or tornado to disperse it later? Or is it better to let it sit where it lands and decomposes in about a week like it has since time began?
[“Kim Kardashian named British GQ’s Woman of the Year”] So much for Britt taste, or are they using her to drive out the Muslims with pig pictures?
[“Fat girls”]  Yes, Florida does in fact have a higher rate of obesity than New Jersey because all the fat New Jersey girls left NJ and moved here.

[“Watching TV in the daytime”] I am a man and had to suffer with daytime TV while healing from an injury. I started to turn blonde, eat junk food, talk on the phone for hours saying nothing and started to love soap operas. I shot myself three times in the head, but missed everything important
[“ISIS is baiting the U.S. to go to war with them by beheading some of its citizens”] A poster asked yesterday what I meant by that post. Nothing. Sometimes a post means just what is written and nothing more.

[Middle East] Study the history of that region. Its all about power and religion. USA should back off. Bordering countries can and will attempt to protect their nation states. They will be so busy fighting in an attempt to keep or gain lands. The problem is that the US has become somewhat dependent on some of these countries for their natural resources. Also we try to flex our arms like a superpower should, but to no avail. In war death is death. I know it sound harsh, but a tough skin and approach is needed. Yes we will suffer and may have to pay higher gas prices, but I would rather have that then having war on our soil. Yes, some multinational companies will feel a negative impact, while others will prosper beyond their belief. If we are attacked on our soil then we should retaliate with “absolute power absolutely”. Power politics is necessary. Our current policy of “lets see what happens” then telling everyone what they plan to do is bullshit! It’s so sad how the US acts to get noticed. Yes, we were once a superpower, but no more. Yes we have freedom and that is the most important thing we have. History repeats itself. Russia is acting like it did during the revolution. I don’t think it will be long before the “Soviet Union” returns and who knows how the new map of the middle east will look. For the US to survive we need to become insular and take care of the US. We can help prevent wars not be in all of them.
[Friday Joke] Children And Grandchildren  (and in the process grandchildren) To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students, here is something to make you chuckle. Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God’s omnipotence did not extend to His own children.After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was ‘DON’T! ‘
‘Don’t what ?’ Adam replied.
‘Don’t eat the forbidden fruit.’ God said.
‘Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit! ‘
No way! ‘ ‘Yes way!
‘Do NOT eat the fruit! ‘ said God.
‘Why? ‘
Because I am your Father and I said so!’ God replied, wondering why He hadn’t stopped creation after making the elephants.
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked! ‘Didn’t I tell you not to eat the fruit?’ God asked.
‘Uh huh,’ Adam replied.
‘Then why did you? ‘ said the Father.
‘I don’t know,’ said Eve. ‘She started it! ‘ Adam said.
‘Did not ! ‘
‘Did too! ‘
Having had it with the two of them, God’s punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.
Question to the editor. Can I post a buyer beware for women regarding a local lawyer (David Manz)? If I can…
The word on the street is that David Manz a good lawyer for women. My experience was, …that he is is a great lawyer if there is a lot of money involved. If not he he will do whatever ‘he thinks’ is is the quickest route to closing (settling) the divorce case, even if is not the wish or even in the best interest of his female client.
I was belittle by him if I got emotional, I was always on the defensive (had to, in writing, defend myself to him when allegations and untruths were made by my husband), and I almost lost custody of my female child to my husband (who I had left because of substance abuse, anger, and control issues). By the grace of God and the generosity of friends I was able to switch lawyers before I lost everything including my child! Buyer beware!
[Monroe County arrests] they arrests look like a motley crew. A lot of people are charged with 1 Unknown Count(s) of 999999 – MUNICIPAL ORDINANCE VIOL. What is it?

[“You can fix stupid”] No, you can fix ignorant, not stupid. Actually all that you have to do to fix ignorance is to educate. ie. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Not knowing something has nothing to do with your capacity to learn it. Whereas stupidity is the inability to be educated.
[“Extension Service”] Kim Gable did what government workers do, spewed a bunch of crap that no one cares about while wasting tax payer money so she can feel like her job is justified. Government should be cut by a 3rd. Especially the federal government. I’ve thrown away tools that got more done then some feds
I received this email yesterday. WTF? What have other people done? Do I need this to keep my Facebook experience the same?

“We wanted to let you know that messages are moving out of the Facebook app to our Messenger app, a free app that’s faster and more reliable for everyday messaging. Messenger also includes new ways to send photos and videos, voice calls, stickers, group conversations and more.

Soon we’ll start guiding you to get started with Messenger. After a few days, you’ll also see a reminder notice in the Facebook app, where you’d normally see your messages. At that point, we’ll ask you to install Messenger or go to the Facebook website to view and send messages. You’ll still see new message notifications in the Facebook app, and it’ll be easy to switch between Facebook and Messenger.

We appreciate your taking the time to install Messenger and know it will take a little while to adjust to using a second app. We look forward to sharing this fast, fun and reliable way of messaging with you. You can learn more here.

What amazes me is the fact that no one can tell who is a Muslim or Catholic or Jewish or whatever with real certainty! Physical appearance does not work and neither does conversation or attire. Any one can have the mind-set of any cult or religion and look perfectly sane, stable and socially acceptable. The only way to tell who is the bad guy is by their actions. This sounds like a typical paranoid statement, but read it again. It tells you that being scared of everyone around you is fruitless and a waste of your precious time. However it also implies that a person must be prepared to defend themselves at a moments notice. The world has become much more dangerous because of a very few mentally ill people who see life as a frustrating journey and cannot cope! Hopefully some day, the hypnosis of living in a cloud of imagined falsehoods will cease to govern humanity and logic and sanity will suffice!
[“Concealing Vegetation”] Do you remember the palm trees that Walgreen’s in Marathon on 109th St. had to put in to hide the store? Then they were gone!

Of course Florida has a lot of really fat gals! They moved here from Jersey, NY and New England.
Finally, a leftie who gets it. Never mind separation of Church and State. Secretary of State John Kerry said it was the United States’ Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority counties.” Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, makes clear it is our “duty” to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries “with a sense of stewardship of earth,” adding, “That responsibility comes from God.”
Your going to be surprised when you see this video of a few good men. Sample reel for ‘Above and Beyond’. Link
Are there any guys out there brave enough to take the “Jersey Girl Challenge?” Probably not a good fund raising concept, but in the Keys one never knows.
Living in paradise would be a lot nicer if lawyers were not here. Go back north!
FTR quit the union because of bitching? That’s a classic. Best comedy in the Islands.

[“Kill all Muslims”] Great post! Do your country a favor and kill a Muslim today before they get to you!
[“FTR paid enough in withholdings to cover all his surgeries”] Mr FTR you could spine the earth with your distorted view of reality. You’ve never paid even a small percentage of the cost of your families’ surgeries and health expenses. Don’t delude yourself in to thinking you have. Those entitlements you’ve benefited from are the very same entitlements you are against.

A POSTER WROTE: “I no longer participate in the democratic process. It is no longer my country, I’m just stuck here. I don’t vote (I can’t change anything. Just look at that election when all of Florida’s votes did not count) I don’t do census, they’re just to allocate money, not for representation. I don’t do jury duty for this corrupt money making legal system, and I don’t do a lot of other things too.

flag wave 81hFTR’S RESPONSE: My first knee jerk reaction to that posting was to be pissed at the poster. That reaction was wrong. The posters mindset is shared by many others. But it is a crying damn shame that so many Americans have given up shouldering their fair share of the work necessary to keep our republic operating. Those who are too lazy or simply refuse to vote harm us all. Likewise those who try to evade jury duty deserve our scorn. Every American charged with a crime is guaranteed a fair trial. That cannot happen without jurors. Our nation can be no stronger than the commitment to freedom of its citizens.

The idea that simply because your candidate or cause may have lost in any particular election is no reason to bail out. It is a sound reason to work harder for your candidate or cause in the next election.

In recent years it’s become easier to vote. It takes only minutes to register and then to vote. I urge all of you who are not registered to take the time to check out the link. It will give you all the answers, and you’ll be surprised how easy it is. One more thing: Please give serious thought to registering and voting as a Republican. Your vote is needed and it will count.


Former Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen were convicted Thursday on a range of corruption charges in connection with gifts and loans they accepted from a wealthy businessman. Essentially the government alleged that McDonnell and his wife accepted a wide range of gifts and money from a single individual in exchange for official “favors” from the Governor.

The case seems to be scripted from Charlie Crist’s habit as governor, of accepting gifts, money, and favors from wealthy, favor seeking, Floridians in exchange for Charlie granting them special favors in his capacity as Governor. Included in the list of Charlie’s wealthy benefactors are Scott Rothstein, a onetime Crist fundraiser and prominent lawyer convicted of running a $1.4 billion Ponzi scheme. Rothstein, under oath, testified that he gave Crist mucho dinero and many favors in exchange for Crist appointing judges that would be “friendly” to Rothstein’s clients. Rothstein is in prison.

Then there is Charlie’s relationship with Jim Greer, former head of the Republican Party of Florida. Greer and Charlie were tight as ticks while Greer was looting the Republican Party and violating federal campaign laws. Greer went to prison.

Crist was infamous for accepting freebie air travel and favors from the rich and famous. One plane in which Charlie was a frequent flyer belonged to a Boca Raton Doctor, Dr. Steven M. Scott, of Boca Raton. He’s the uber wealthy founder of a large HMO and a hospital physician network. Scott heads a medical investment company and founded an HMO that took in more than $230 million from the state from 2005 to 2008 under a contract to provide health care to state workers and retirees. In January 2008, the governor appointed Scott to the University of Florida’s board of trustees. Isn’t that just ducky. Link

Crist’s list of “pals” is even longer….more soon.
