comment at IBA --

Piers is right on--where did it come from--?

and- the reason Christians are ignored is because we Christians have been told to 'turn the other cheek"  - and be nice--

Christ/God was/is a warrior--Is.59--the Creator put on the Full Armor --Lk.19 "Occupy til I come"--(Occupy- a war term meaning - hold the ground won)-Eoh 6 --the Creator gave us the Full Armor --
Enough being weak and submissive!!

Medicare Part G

Medicare Part G

If you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and need Long-Term Care, but the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you, what do you do?
You may opt for Medicare Part G.
The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You may then shoot one worthless politician. This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the health care you need. Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are all covered!
As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now!
And, who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you they can't afford for you to go into a nursing home.
And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it.
And now, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any more income taxes!
Is this a great country or what?
Now that you have solved your senior Long-Term Care problem, go enjoy the weekend!
