Greetings from Calico Blackie!
Another year gone by.
Where did it go?
We became more aware of the world around us, and where did it get us?
I saw a poll the other day which showed that the majority of Americans are fed up with our government and all their “fiscal cliff” partisan bullshit.
So, you’re fed up? So what? They don’t care.
They don’t give a damn about you.
More to the point….
What are we going to do about it?
I’ll tell you what we’ll do. We’ll whine and cry and nothing will change. In the end, we’ll do nothing but whine and cry. Why?
Because it’s easier to go with the flow. To roll with the punches. To accept the status quo and just keep bending over.
Because we’ve been conditioned to believe we can’t make a difference.
We’ve been taught that as individuals, we’re powerless. We’ve been shown time and again that the people who do try to protest and make a difference are “crybabies” and “dirty hippies” who just protest for the sake of protesting. The media tells us so, and we believe it.
DON’T BELIEVE IT! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
If you only make one New Year’s resolution, have it be that you will question more and not take any more shit from those who will strive to make you feel powerless.
Including those worthless bastards in Washington DC.
The world is getting sicker by the day and it isn’t going to change, unless we begin to work together to FORCE a change for the better.
Here’s the latest out of the Nanny State (England)……….
60,000 patients put on death pathway without being told but minister still says controversial end-of-life plan is ‘fantastic’
Up to 60,000 patients die on the Liverpool Care Pathway each year without giving their consent, shocking figures revealed yesterday.
A third of families are also kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment from loved ones.
Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’.
In comments that appeared to prejudge an official inquiry into the LCP, the Health Secretary said ‘one or two’ mistakes should not be allowed to discredit the entire end-of-life system.
But Elspeth Chowdharay-Best of Alert, an anti-euthanasia group, said: ‘The Pathway is designed to finish people off double quick. It is a lethal pathway.
‘Mr Hunt has made a nonsense of the claim of his ministers that there is going to be an independent inquiry.’
The review follows a public outcry over a string of disturbing cases, highlighted by this paper, in which patients or their families were ignored.
The pathway involves withdrawal of lifesaving treatment, with the sick sedated and usually denied nutrition and fluids. Death typically takes place within 29 hours.
The 60,000 figure comes from a joint study by the Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute in Liverpool and the Royal College of Physicians.
It found many patients were not consulted despite being conscious when doctors decided on their care.
Records from 178 hospitals also show that thousands of people on the pathway are left to die in pain because nurses do not do enough to keep them comfortable while drugs are administered.
An estimated 130,000 patients are put on the pathway each year.
Health trusts are thought to have been rewarded with an extra £30million for putting more patients on the LCP.
Critics say it is a self-fulfilling prophecy because there is no scientific method of predicting when death will come.
Norman Lamb, the care services minister, launched a review in November, saying there had been too many cases of families not being consulted.
But Mr Hunt yesterday suggested that concerns about the system were relatively minor compared with its benefits.
Calico Blackie says:
Don’t worry. That’s in England. They wouldn’t do that here, would they?
Kim Kardashian pregnant with Kanye West’s baby
E! News has confirmed with the Kardashian family that Kim is expecting her first child with the rapper.
But it was West who already spilled the exciting news to a few hundred concertgoers.
During his Atlantic City show on Sunday night, West decided to announce that Kim was expecting to all his fans.
Calico Blackie says:
THAT’S what is important to the average American. We’ve been blinded by our “stars” and we somehow think this is IMPORTANT AND EXCITING news.
And, why not? After all, we can’t change anything. Why try? Why be a stick in the mud and try to make for a better world? Idealists and protesters are “suckers” and “useful idiots.”
Our media tells us so!
Why bother to be a “concerned citizen” that actually cares about what they’re doing to us on Capitol Hill and Wall Street?
Why bother to care that they’re legally murdering old folks in England?
WE LOVE BIG BROTHER!
It’s time we got off our own asses, stop looking at their asses, put down the remotes, and get involved in our affairs. It’s time to make the change.
Let freedom ring anew in 2013.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
