HOW THE WORM TURNS

March 30, 2009

 

 Amazingly no broken or even strained arms. One day the economy is great! I do not have to think back to far. I can still hear a former Republican Treasurer of Ontario saying those same words. I also do remember the same Treasurer wanting to put all homeless people in jail. Now it must have been disturbing having to look at all these unfortunate people from the back of his Government issued and driven limo! When he was finally voted out the Province was in a huge, huge defecate. With the defecate it will take Ontario another 35 years to recover. Maybe more now with another financial mess with this Finance Minister and the Government he represents. I wont say who he was.s what they said.s a great time to buy stocks. (Yea if you have job and you are rich).t they? Wasnt one of them a former Bank President or something like that. Probation Officers in partnership with the Republicans Yes the Iggy/Stevie Coalition a Canadian Iconic match.Its all we can stand and we cant stand no more.

 

 

 

DEAR EDITOR

The Canadian Economy is in the toilet. That is because the economy did not have any real adult supervision.

Our Government was two busy patting themselves on the back in their dream world economy.

Maybe more now with another financial mess with this Finance Minister and the Government he represents. I won

t say who he was.

We will have a surplus, small but a surplus. Well that

s what they said.

That was when the Prime Minister said on CBC it

s a great time to buy stocks. (Yea if you have job and you are rich).

Then well we are in a Technical Recession. (What he Hell is a Technical Recession anyway?) Well, are we in a Technical Depression now?

Tens, of thousand of Canadians are loosing their jobs each and every day. What kind of a Government would set it up that thousands of these people would not qualify for EI (or what ever they call it this week)?

Now we are heading for record defecates (just like Ontario under the last Republican Government, not mentioning any names now,) extremely record defecates and we are now spending our way out of the defecate. You know I remember hearing the Government saying how bad that was to former Ontario Premier Bob Rea. My, my how does eating crow taste Republicans? The Prime Minister , the Finance Minister or anybody else in their caucus have even replied to my DARE to live on EI for six months (6). That would be with no other money. I even said they had the option of living on Canada Pension Payments instead. This is a Regime that expects us to do as they say not as they do! They should take the dare just to prove to us how easy it is to live on these pittance. No one else can figure it out. So Jimmy please show us.

Where was the Official Opposition when all this was happening. Well they were pushing their Green Package, needed but handled terribly wrong. To say it was a disaster would be to soft. They have a couple of Economists in the Caucus don

t they? Wasn

t one of them a former Bank President or something like that.

What has the Liberals been successful in becoming, Well,

Probation Officers

in partnership with the Republicans Yes the Iggy/Stevie Coalition a Canadian Iconic match.

A Leader who lived in the USA for years and one who wishes Canada, was just like the USA.

Now the NDP where up to their usual. Looking at what they could vote against next. This is not the NDP that I used to belong, to for almost 20 years.

As for the Separatists they were voting for Quebec. The rest of the Country? What? Where? When? Really?

The people of Canada have to revolt and speak up

Its all we can stand and we can

t stand no more.

Big Businesses are getting bailouts and tax cuts (Using workers EI contributions surpluses)! Where are our bailouts? Where are the tax cuts for low income people?

How did we elect these yahoos?

Canada stand up and demand we get better Government and we must hold them accountable. Them and their partners in the National Media.

MORE REASONS WHY THE CRTC MUST RULE AGAINST BELL CANADA

March 26, 2009

Thomas O’Neil Chair Bell Canada &

The Board of Directors Bell Canada,

Bell Executive Offices.

Mr O’Neil:

To follow up on my previous letter. To show you another reason that service in this area should be free or at least half price is that there are no more lines out here. It just shows how Bell Canada considers us SECOND CLASS CITEZENS IN THE COUNTRY, COUNTRY BUMKINS. We don’t know anything any way.

My son, his wife and son and his wife are in a position that they have to move out of their home and move in hear. They can’t get a phone line.

In 5 years of living hear Bell Canada has not made any improvements to their lines.

We are your captive customers we do not have a choice like other people in bigger centres.

We can not go to Roger or Yak. We can’t even go to Vonage (or what ever they call it.) etc

I point this out to the Chair of the CRTC as another reason the Board should rule against Bell and make them give free or greatly reduce costs in this area. Their other alternative is to get their asses in gear and immediately start improvement and bring us up to the twenty-first centre level of technology.

This company to me does not seen to really give a damn about the customers. You have an agenda and the hell with anybody.

We just want your money and that’s the bottom line. Well we should pay according to scale. The scale according to the quality of the service provider.

The service of Bell Canada is very, very, poor. No matter how many times I am told the spin that you really care.

If you cared there would have been service improvements over 5 years. One of the different times that our line from the out side box to the house laid on the ground for over a year.

I do not know how many times it got cut when we where cutting the grass.

CRTC. PLEASE DO SOMETHING.

I hope that other Canadians who read this on my Blogs will start to write Bell and the CRTC to get the service we deserve.

POSTED ON

MYSPACE, BLOGGER, EXPERIENCE PROJECT, FACEBOOK, AND WORDPRESS.

Yours not very happy

CHAIR OF THE CRTC.

March 24, 2009

As a follow up to my letter to Mr. O

I certainly hope you will follow up on this situation.

Rural customers are being cheated not only on service but on the quality of service.

Why should we pay for half of the service that people in Big Cities who get better services.

For example for 5 years we have had a hum on our phone. Bell have been hear many times.

The big excuse is that the noise is because I have a computer on my line.

Duh! If there was an another system I would have it.

I also enclose a posting I put on my 5 blogs re the Crap on Fox News last night.

I hope that give just consideration to stopping Fox signals and programming to stop at the Border.

Yours sincerely

FOX NEWS:TOTALLY DISCUSTING

March 24, 2009

The parts of a Show on Fox is the most discussing thing I have ever seen on Television in 62 years. (Well a little less because TV did not exist until I was about 6.

The things said by the people on this show the ignorance many Americans have of the rest of the World. Especially their closest neighbour, and biggest trading partner!

I would hope that these people are now unemployed. I am going to write the CANADIAN RADIO & TELIVISSSION COMMISSION AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNAMT AND DEMAND THEY BLOCK ALL FOX CHANNELS AND FOX PROGRAMING FORM CANADIAN AIRWAVES.

This is not a professional way to act.

IT TOTALLY SUCKS!!!!

PRIME MINISTER YOU MEAN THE TALIBAN DOEN’T SUBSCRIBE TO CNN?

March 5, 2009

The Canadian Prime Minster once accused the Opposition of siding with the Taliban when they were asking questions about the Pipeline War in the Commons. He said “The Taliban watches the Commons”. Then he went on CNN and announced the war can not be won” Prime Minister,
doesn’t the Taliban subscribe to CNN?
Are you saying they find the House of Commons more interesting than CNN?

CLARIFICATION

March 3, 2009

MARCH IS KIDNEY MONTH

CLARIFICATION!

 

I must apologize to every body for the misunderstanding from my Postings on my different Blogs yesterday.

I have received comments from my readers from around the world about the money I talked about.

In Canada patients on dialysis do not pay any money. That is the cost to the Federal and Provincial Governments. Well the tax payers of Canada.

In fact to be on Dialysis in Canada it does not cost you anything. Except the cost of getting there and under certain circumstances that is a tax write off. If you can manage it you can even have a dialysis machine in your home for home dialysis. Personally I could not do that the thought of shoving needles about an inch or more long and thick into my arm alone every night scares the hell out of me.

I can’t even look when I get a flu shot. We do not pay for most medical services. When I had a double kidney transplant it did not cost me a cent.

What I was trying to prove was how much this is costing the Government and they are willing to pay it instead of getting as many transplants as possible to cut those costs.

Now keep in mind I am only talking about those who need kidney transplants.

I am not talking about those who need livers, Hearts, lung, ETC. The wait for just a kidney transplant is 4-10 years. This wait changes in different part of the Country.

They are all different from kidney patients. In many cases it may be even more critical for them to be transplanted. I do not know what the dollar figures are in this matter, and it does not matter if they need the treatment then they need it. As long as it saves a life then it is worth it. It is just to bad our politicians do not have an the soul or caring about to act in a way that will save more lives. The blood is on their hands. How many of them have even signed their donor cards?

A few years ago I challenged the members of the House of Commons to go and take a tour their local dialysis unit and explain to the patient their why they refuse to act and do something to get more organs available in Canada. To this day I have no idea how many did that. I know I did not see photo-ops on the 11 news or nor did I see a spread in any newspaper. Did anybody?

For your information every person who donates their organs they are saving at least 4-5 other lives. You give the gift of life. Part of you goes on living. You become somebody and their loved ones hero. So does your family who allowed.

Talking about allowing it one of the problems even when someone has signed their donor card a family member who does not understand the need and the process and respectful way organs are removed in Canada say ‘NO’ . The Doctors just walk way and another good set of organs are either buried or burnt.. When only 2% of the population of the population sign their donor cards this is a tragedy. With Presumed Donor that would not happen.

Until we get a caring Government please openly discuss your wished with everyone in your family. Don’t leave them trying to figure out your wishes.

MARCH IS KIDNEY MONTH (PLEASE RE POST)

March 3, 2009

March is Kidney Month. It is the month that we take note of the deadly Kidney Disease.
It can be a very slow to disease. Meaning your Kidneys can slowly degrade over a number of years. They have also been know to just quit quickly.
To have Kidney Disease one must under go dialysis treatments.
To have Kidney Failure means being hooked to a dialysis machine 3 or more days a week for 3or more hours per treatment. This is called Hemo Dialysis.
The other treatment is to be treated with PD dialysis. This method you have tubes coming out of your stomach. You must 3-4 times a day do an exchange of fluids to keep your blood clean. Suffering from Kidney Failure also means living on a very restive diet. Your life is built around your dialysis treatments. This basically means you can not travel to far from home. Unless you can afford to pay for your treatments while traveling. For example to travel to Florida for a winter vacation you must first book your sessions at your destination before you travel and pay over $ 500 per session out of your own pocket.
As you all know kidney disease your kidney stops working so your body does not produce urine or at least not enough to purify your blood,
At this time there is no cure for kidney disease. The numbers of patients on dialysis is going continually. Something has to be done.
It costs about $ 30,000-$ 50,000 to provide dialysis for each and every person on dialysis. Not to even mention that a large number of these patients can not work because they are to weak to work coupled with the number of hours spent on dialysis is so time consuming that you can not easily have time to work.
Many are an disability. Many on Dialysis are confined to wheel chairs due to limb amputations.
The obvious is to get as many of these patient off of dialysis as quickly as possible.
The only treatment at this time is to get people of dialysis is to do a kidney transplant.
I said treatment not a cure. Transplants are treatments not a cure.
Even with a transplant you life is always at risk. Having said that , however, it is still worth the risk. Even the $ 4,000 per month for anti rejection drug is worth it.
In Canada one Canadian dies every three days while waiting of an organ transplant. Only 2 % off Canadians sign their donor cards. Then many of those are stopped by grieving family members.
One way to increase the number of Organs is for Canada to use the system used by many European Countries. That is called “PRESUMED DONOR”, that means that every Citizen is considered an organ donor. Unless the person signs NON DONOR CARD. One does not have to give reason that is a personal choice. Some religions do not believe in Organ Donations and that is fine. It is their right. There would be an age limit say for example 16 so then it would be up to he parents or guardian. At 16 most kids are old enough to make that decision. In Canada that is the legal age of consent so if they are old enough to make the decision on having or not having sex then they are old enough to donate their organs.
I have been fighting to allow Canadians the right to discuss this issue in Canada, but for some selfish reason the Politicians and the National Media have keep this discussion COVERED-UP!
I have even “ DEMANDED A ROYAL COMMSSION “, and written the United Nations, but they still do not want Canadians to know about this.
Even the New IGGY/STEVIE coalition have not done anything to help save lives.
I can only assume that they have normal hearts but Stone-Cold-Hearts . I also think that they can not figure out how to make their rich friends richer by changing the laws. I mean that is the only reason Politicians due anything.
This is a good reason to hope for a Federal Election where we can vote every member of the House of Commons out.
With the Economic situation we will soon have fewer members of media to keep the secret.
I hope that at least a couple of them will soon break their silence and stop Canadians from dying one every three days. I am not holding my breath for this to happen.
I must report that I have had a transplant. About 14 months ago I got a double kidney transplant. Every day I say a prayer thanking the brave family who donated a loved ones organs to save my life and maybe 4 other peoples lives. Who every you are., where every you are again thank you.
I do not know how long my donated kidneys will last all I can do is fallow doctors orders , take my Med’s , keep away from anyone who is sick and pray every day. The reason I have to stay away from sick people is that due to the $4,000 in meds I take every day they destroy my immune system. But this is far better than the alternatives. Many more years on dialysis or being dead.
Help me save lives and help me save democracy in Canada. Call write, email the Prime Minister telling them to bring in Presume Donor Organ Donations.
You will help save some ones life.
That will be something to be proud of.
