Obama Moves to Centralize Control Over Party Strategy

Both parties need to go. They are so outside of their constitutional powers, but I blame “We The People”, for this dire state of affairs. Take back your school house, take back your county, take back your states. The “elected cockroaches” that we stood bye and just let them be in office are entrenched. They will not “go so silently into that dark night” without kicking and screaming. Personally, I’d love to kick them and hear them scream.

From The NY Times:

President Obama is reconstituting the team that helped him win the White House to counter Republican challenges in the midterm elections and recalibrate after political setbacks that have narrowed his legislative ambitions. Mr. Obama has asked his former campaign manager, David Plouffe, to oversee House, Senate and governor’s races to stave off a hemorrhage of seats in the fall. The president ordered a review of the Democratic political operation — from the White House to party committees — after last week’s Republican victory in the Massachusetts Senate race, aides said.

In addition to Mr. Plouffe, who will primarily work from the Democratic National Committee in consultation with the White House, several top operatives from the Obama campaign will be dispatched across the country to advise major races as part of the president’s attempt to take greater control over the midterm elections, aides said.

My Uncooperative Readers; I will ask the question, how many times have you heard the words, “take over”, and “control”. Enough said.

Banks shut in Fla., Mo., NM, Ore., Wash.

From apnews.myway.com:

Regulators shut down banks Friday in Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington, bringing to nine the number of bank failures so far in 2010, following 140 closures last year in the toughest economic environment since the Great Depression.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. took over the five banks: Charter Bank, based in Santa Fe, N.M., with $1.2 billion in assets and $851.5 million in deposits; Miami-based Premier American Bank, with $350.9 million in assets and $326.3 million in deposits; Bank of Leeton in Leeton, Mo., with $20.1 million in assets and $20.4 million in deposits; Columbia River Bank, based in The Dalles, Ore., with $1.1 billion in assets and $1 billion in deposits; and Seattle-based Evergreen Bank, with $488.5 million in assets and $439.4 million in deposits.

Beal Financial Corp., based in Plano, Texas, agreed to assume the deposits and assets of Charter Bank. In addition, the FDIC and Beal Financial agreed to share losses on $805.5 million of the failed bank’s loans and other assets.

Columbia State Bank, based in Tacoma, Wash., agreed to buy the deposits and assets of Columbia River Bank. The FDIC and Columbia State Bank agreed to share losses on $697.4 million of its loans and other assets.

Umpqua Bank, based in Roseburg, Ore., is assuming the deposits and assets of Evergreen Bank. The FDIC and Umpqua Bank agreed to share losses on $379.5 million of its loans and other assets.

I feel for the people who not only, had bank accounts at these banks, but also had home loans, business loans, and credit cards. Ya really need to read the entire article. We live in scary and interesting times, as the Chinese and Irish curse reads. I can’t image how I would react to receiving the letter telling me my bank was gone. I think we’ll do this one on our radio show as well.

U.S. Preparing Gitmo for Haitian Migrants

The situation with Haiti is totally out of control now. This is outrageous. How in all that is holy are Haitians going to rebuild Haiti if They Are All Living In The United States of America!!!!

From The AP:

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba — The U.S. has begun preparing tents at Guantanamo Bay for Haitians migrants in case of a mass migration spurred by the earthquake, a senior official at the base said Wednesday.

About 100 tents, each capable of holding 10 people, have been erected and authorities have more than 1,000 more on hand in case waves of Haitians leave their homeland and are captured at sea, said Navy Rear Adm. Thomas Copeman.

I know Club Gitmo is not in the USA, but we own it, pay for it, man it and secure it. So what’s the difference. Oh wait, we don’t secure our own country. Where’s the fence?

Medical Self Reliance Part Two

By Susan Frances Bonner
Author of: Opening a Registered Nurse’s Eyes: A Life-Altering Journey Across North America

As a Home Health Nurse off and on since 1995, my main goal and all Home Health Nurses’ as well; was to keep my chronically ill patients out of the hospital, out of the doctor’s office and relatively healthy.

In case no one knows what a Home Health Nurse is, I have provided a definition from, mondofacto.com. “Home Health Nurse: A nurse who is responsible for a group of clients in the home setting. Visits clients on a routine basis to assist client and family with care as needed and to teach family the care needed so that the client may remain in his/her home.”

It was a daunting task, but achievable. Most of my patients suffered from Diabetes, Heart Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Asthma, ect. Diseases, that could easily go from chronic to acute and require professional medical attention. I was also dealing with an aging population, another obstacle to keeping these folks out of the hospital. In order to do that, one has to distinguish between what you can and cannot do when it comes to the health of an individual. That includes yourself and your loved ones.

My husband is chronically ill. He has Ankoyolsing Spondialitis, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. We live an hour away from the nearest medical facility and during the winter the only way to get to town is to snowmobile to our vehicle down the mountain. So, we are very conscious of what we consider a “medical emergency”.

With that disclosed; let’s explore what we can and cannot due when it comes to our health. And this will include people with chronic diseases. One; when it comes to trauma, meaning catastrophic bodily injury, there is very little one can do without a medical facility. Even if you know first aide and CPR, the person that you performed that on will still need additional medical attention. Conversely, a diabetic has complete control over their blood sugar, just as someone with high blood pressure does.

Ok, I can hear everyone now. The diagnosed diabetic and the rest of the chronic disease crowd are already in the medical system. Yes, they are; but now what? Now, you use the tools given you to become self-reliant. Nutrition, exercise and knowledge of your disease process are key. Believe you me, my husband and I find that out everyday. It’s all an experiment when it comes to our health. Medical professionals do not have all the answers. That’s why it’s called “practicing medicine”. So don’t be so hard on yourself, you can take control of your health and your loved ones as well.

Two; keep records, such as; what caused your disease? What medications, mainstream or holistic will help you control your disease? What types of foods and exercise regimens make your disease better or worse? How much stress do you have in your life and how does it affect your body? Knowledge is the key and without questions and answers there is no knowledge.

Now, common illnesses you can cure are: one the Common Cold. Antibiotics in no way shape or form help the Common Cold. The Common Cold is produced by a certain bacteria, which does not respond to antibiotics. So, the best way to cure it is to strive to keep healthy so your immune system is strong enough to battle all ills. Again, proper nutrition, (meaning, eat what you want, just in moderation), exercise and rest. Oh and laugh a lot. Laughter is the best medicine.

Two: the Flu. Three: Ear, eye and sinus infections. I am not going to elaborate on each because I want you to find out for yourselves how to prevent and cure the above. Again, knowledge is our best weapon.
And there are many different sources that you can access to gain said knowledge. Health care is very personal and it is up to you to taylor it to you and your loved ones individual needs. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

In conclusion I want to emphasize that all the above measures sound superficial but they are not. They are the basics. They are common sense approaches to keeping you and your loved ones out of the health care system, as much as possible.

Stay tuned for Part Three of this series coming to you next week!

Erroll Southers, Obama’s choice to head TSA, withdraws nomination

Another one Bites the Dust, and another one gone, and another one gone, another one rolls under the bus.

From The Washington Post:

Yea, I know this is coming from a liberal rag, but I am on the mailing list because I like to keep an eye on the enemy. And it seems the left are eating their own.

The Obama administration’s choice to lead the struggling Transportation Security Administration withdrew his name from consideration Wednesday, just weeks after revelations that he had provided misleading information to Congress prompted several Republicans to suggest that his nomination would not move forward without a fight.

Now, I must stress time and again that our readers and listeners of the Uncooperative Radio show read between the lines. Always, strive to find the truth beneath the lies. Let’s continue.

Erroll Southers, a former FBI agent and homeland security specialist, was presented as a leader who would improve the TSA’s sprawling operations and enhance passenger screening to prevent such attacks as the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner.

But GOP opposition to Southers escalated rapidly after The Washington Post reported that he had given Congress and the White House misleading information about incidents two decades ago in which he inappropriately accessed a federal database to obtain information about his estranged wife’s new boyfriend, possibly in violation of privacy laws.

In a statement released by the White House, Southers blamed congressional critics motivated by “political ideology” for the troubles that overshadowed his nomination.

“It is apparent that this path has been obstructed by political ideology,” he said. “. . . My nomination has become a lightning rod for those who have chosen to push a political agenda at the risk of the safety and security of the American people. This partisan climate is unacceptable and I refuse to allow myself to remain part of their dialogue.”

Yea, it’s not about you “dude”, it’s not about your actions or choices in life, “dude from Chicago”, it’s about everyone else. Bite Me. You suck, everyone that President Baracus Obamanous has appointed, “sucks”. Our government “sucks”. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK! Ok, I feel a little better, now.

Siege of California Storms Triggers Mudslide Fears

From Fox News:

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. — Hours of heavy rain fell Thursday on saturated Southern California as the fourth Pacific storm in a week came ashore, triggering dire warnings by authorities that huge mud flows were likely in foothill communities and residents of endangered homes should obey evacuation orders.

A young man was rescued from a rushing river in Orange County, but rescuers said they can’t confirm his report that a companion got swept away following a fruitless search. And a motorist was rescued after a tornado knocked power lines onto a highway in the state’s remote southeast corner, trapping the man inside his vehicle.

Travel snarls mounted as major highways were closed by snow and tornado damage, and strong winds grounded flights at several airports. Another tornado left a trail of damage in a community northwest of Los Angeles.

The siege of storms has led to several deaths statewide and street flooding in urban areas, and has turned the region’s often-dry river and creek channels into raging torrents.

I am no fan of California, but this is bad folks. Hey, how come we haven’t heard anything from our beloved President about this disaster in our own country? Does he care about Haiti more than us. And also, if you read more of the article you will find that the AP calls the acting Governor of California, Jerry Brown. Wrong. His real name is Edmund G. Brown Jr. OOpsy.

Defiant Obama urges Congress to pass jobs bill

How tired are you of our President and his speeches? Please, Mr. President, please shut up and stop spending our money.

From Yahoo News:

ELYRIA, Ohio – A combative President Barack Obama exhorted Congress Friday to pass a new job-creation bill, taking a populist appeal to America’s recession-racked Rust Belt in hopes of recapturing the energy of his campaign and moving his presidency beyond this week’s blows.

Obama weaved angry us-against-them rhetoric throughout the day, telling a town hall audience that he “will never stop fighting” for an economy that works for the hard-working, not just those already well off.

“This isn’t about me. This is about you,” Obama shouted in a rousing defense of his presidency and not-so-subtle slaps at his critics. “I think that I win when you win. That’s how I think about it.”

No, it is all about you and your agenda, Mr. President. It’s about you and your fellow “progressives” marching us into commie hell.

So in his at the town hall meeting at Lorain County Community College near Cleveland, the president assailed Washington and Wall Street alike, hoping to connect with public’s frustration and position himself as the solution — not the problem.

He strongly defended unpopular actions he has taken to bail out banks and insurers and to rescue automakers from collapse. Such measures have not gone over well in many quarters, derided as expanding government and swelling the deficit while many on Main Street still walk unemployment lines.
