MH 370, CNN, What can I Say? BREAKING NEWS !

April 21, 2014

Dear family survivors of MH 370 – I don’t want to appear cold or uncaring, but it is time to get on with your lives. OOur mutual governments have somehow decided to spend over 50 million dollars already looking for the bloated corpses of your loved ones. Surely by now, you have figured out that everyone died – there are NO survivors. 

It is Over.

Move On.

While the governments plan on spending upwards of another 200 Million dollars finding and raising the pieces of the airplane. it is long overdue for all of us , you included to put this behind us.

I mean How many CNN Breaking News Alerts can one be expected  to watch  with NO NEWS.  

BREAKING NEWS:  The Indian Ocean is Wet

BREAKING NEWS:  The Indian Ocean is Deep 

BREAKING NEWS:  The Indian Ocean  is Huge.

You get the picture.

and What Happened to the News CNN ?

You have obviously dedicated Headline News  ( “HLN” ) having people upload pictures of their babies, human interest stories about people doing everyday stuff, and pop news about LIndsay Lohan, Justin, Bieber, the Kardassians, etc —Not to much the insipid and overblown coverage of the various legal trials that NONE of us want to see…..

Consider, CNN, renaming it from CNN to MH370 channel. You could have Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer do 24 hr tag team coverage of the MH 370 story— Oh WAIT –you already ARE doing that !

Maybe you should approach Quantas and Singapore Airlines as potential  sponsors ?  How about ACN as an alternative to CNN –The Airplane Crash Network ! 


I have been reduced to watching Al Jazeera to find out what’s happening in the world. How lame is that ?



April 21, 2014

The last time I tried this, it worked partially when I asked that we stop hearing about Justin Bieber.

Lindsay Lohan – please go away. Just Go Away.

I don’t care if they lock you up for drugs, alcohol, drunk driving etc.

Lately, it became news who you have had intercourse with. Please keep that to yourself and to the people you have slept with. Please.

Now I am being bombarded with the news about your miscarriage/abortion.


I mean – do I really have to hear about when you floss your teeth and with what? If you have hemorrhoids ?  Whether or not you drink you coffee black or with sugar?  How often you bite your fingernails or whether or not you use a vaginal deodorant ?

Isn’t it lame enough that we have to put up with the Kardassians and every time they fart?

It isn’t like you are some sort of famous actress ? or wildly talented . or insanely beautiful.

The only things that come to mind when your name comes across my TV screen, my computer screen, etc is how much coke you snort, how drunk you are when they pull you over after you wreck your car, or who you had sex with.



Just go away. Find some nice suburb of Hollywood and disappear into Oblivion. Get old. Or NOT, I Do Not Care. 

It isn’t as if I find you entertaining or amusing. 

Just Irritating.




Climate Change — Stupid STUPID STUPID

April 13, 2014

The definitive International group of scientists has published their findings, Their conclusions are pretty simple:

1. A rise of 5 degrees C will be catastrophic and it is happening.

2. It isn’t too late for us to keep the global temperature from rising up 2 C.

The problem is it will take political will and action. We must reduce emissions 40-70% to avoid catastrophe. So it isn’t going to happen. The politicians will be chest deep in water still arguing and industry will be underwater still trying to keep old technology going. 

Bottom line- we are hardwired to jump into the tree just before the lions and tigers leap for us. We are not hard wired to avoid crisis in order to prevent it. 

I feel bad for the next generations. I see tragedy, chaos, and essentially breakdown of a lot of civilization in the wind. 

Stupid. Just Stupid. 


Malaysia Jet MH 370

April 11, 2014

Headlines read :
<h1>Australia Confident Sounds Are from Missing Jet

Excuse me ! What did you think it was Russian Submarines ?   Amelia Earhart’s plane ?  Howdy Doody ?

Keechrist !  They are getting a Ping at 37.5 mHz which is THE Ping frequency. What the Hell else would be pinging them at the bottom of the ocean in the middle of freakin NoWhere ? Tinkerbelle ?

While I am at it….Why or Why are we all spending Millions and Millions of dollars looking for the Black box ? They have established the plane went down out there a month ago. There are no survivors and the plane is trash. I know they would like to find out why it crashed but is this really really worth so many millions of dollars to confirm what is the most important fact —The Plane Crashed People all dead.  Game over.

They are acting like this is a free search.

It isn’t. And even if they find the recorders, so what ?

IT isn’t like this is happening daily or weekly or monthly. Or yearly. Gravity won this round. Move on.

Vaccinations, Education and Intelligence

April 11, 2014

This is a real simple correlation. It isn’t rocket science.

My clinicalobservations spanning forty years, my education, my experience in 5 years of ER and 7 years as a a Public Health Director all factor in to this opinion.

People that don’t get vaccinations don’t do it as a result of the complexities of low intelligence, poor or no education and misdirection by pseudo scientists or health -care – professional- wannabees.

People that don’t get their kids vaccinations are not very bright. They aren’t educated or sophisticated and they are led astray by “naturopaths”, chiropractors, and/or parents who need someone to blame for their kid’s shortcomings, be it autism, mental retardation, etc etc. 

Pure and Simple – it is an Intelligence Test. You flunk if you do not get your kids their shots. Ignorance and Stupidity are rampant these days. 

We can argue about it all you want and it won’t make any difference. 
People do have the right to live their own lives. We have 7 billion people on the planet –way too many –so one more or less doesn’t make that much difference as long as you aren’t THAT kid.  Death by Measles, Tetanus, etc etc….Oh Well….

The rest of us should brace for more unnecessary tragedies as we see more outbreaks. There is little we can do about it. 


Comments on Insanity, Violence, Institutions, Access to Deadly Force and Human Nature

April 10, 2014

I believe( thanks to mass media and the Internet) that we are finally coming to terms with (1) the real human nature and (b) the consequences of closing the mental institutions nationally in the 1980s). We are now seeing people blow up marathons, stab 22 people in a High School, Shoot 60 people watching a Batman Movie, witness people who call 911 50 times a day for fake calls in San Francisco, and either drop bricks off of overpasses or snipe cars in Kansas City. This is the true nature of people. The consequences of streeting several million folks who can’t take care of themselves has come back to bite us on the butt. If you street enough harmless and helpless people, statistically you are going to also be rubbing elbows with some violent crazies who are either sociopaths or they don’t realize the consequences of gunning down 20 elementary school children.  I am much afraid with our current polarization of the political process, we are NOT going to find solutions. The fear of “violating civil rights couldn’t certainly be met with an adequate effort on monitoring who gets locked up and why. We are clearly not going to keep guns and knives (and cell phones) out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them but we could minimize the opportunities violent people have to hurt innocents. And finally, it is unfortunate but even writing this is much like pissing yourself in a dark suit of clothing. You may get a warm feeling but no one notices.

Somethings Really Piss Me Off This is one of them !

Somethings Really Piss Me Off  This is one of them !

One of the things that REALLY pisses me off is seeing a photo of someone giving an injection in the tricep. The arm muscle to give injections into is the deltoid –indicated by the red arrow below. The tricep is just so wrong !

Senate rejects far-reaching Veterans Affairs bill SHAME ON THOSE REPUBLICANS

February 28, 2014

OK Let’s get something straight.

The Republican Senators (except for 2) voted against the Veteran’s Bill today. 


Support the Troops/Military  MY ASS !  The Hypocritical Republicans betrayed our veteran’s today. 

Being from Iowa now I say Shame on you Chuck Grassley. The American Legion should ask you for their award back. If you had ever served in the military, you might understand why this is so disgusting. When you vote against people who have served their country and while you ride in limos and attend parties in Washington, you betray the American people. You have been a Senator long enough. 



I’m Calling BULLSHIT on Chuck Hagel The SECDEF has no Clothes !

February 10, 2014

I am aware most people in America don’t know Chuck Hagel’s name or if they do, they couldn’t tell you accurately what it is he does.

Too bad.

The Secretary of Defense is looking into ethical problems in the military and appointing an ethics advisor.

(       etc etc )

Oh Bullshit.

This is not a NEW problem Chuck.

You don’t need any more Blue Ribbon panels or Reports. You have a Battleship size drawer full of them already. So did Panetta and the ones before him as well.

How many briefings do YOU need ?

If it is plain as day to me in Iowa WTF is wrong with your vision in Washington DC ?

Why are Sexual Assaults in the military a Scandal ?

Why are senior officers ( Colonels, Generals, Admirals) being relieved or even courtmartialed ?

What is wrong with the Nuke Force ?

Why are senior officers (See above) not acting ?

You were in the Army Secretary Hagel. Didn’t they teach you where LEADERSHIP starts ?

It doesn’t start in reports, panels, briefings or statistics.

It starts with YOU and the Commander in Chief.

But YOU are where the Rubber meets the road.     

Call in the Officers ( and NCO’s) in charge of what is wrong. Fire them. Get new ones. Tell the new ones to shape up or they too are going away. Keep doing that until you get some leaders who understand what you want. Conduct becoming an officer.

Find out who is screwing up in the flag ranks and retire them . Retire them ALL if they aren’t leading. You won’t miss them. Get a new team going.

Prosecute and punish people stealing from the Navy. Prosecute and Punish rapists. Prosecute and Punish Nuke Officers screwing off. Get the officers screwing their subordinates and put them in Leavenworth. Take the officers living like Emperors on expense accounts and put their asses behind bars. Send the damn recruiting National Guard thieves to Leavenworth

This isn’t hard Secretary Hagel.

Call them in one at a time and do not be merciful. Be Fair but take care of the Defense Department. No exceptions. 

Just DO it. You will be amazed how fast the entire DOD will shape up once they figure out you are going to play hardball, it will roll downhill and you will be happier than you are now.

Don’t weasel out and blame the Iraq and Aghan Wars. That’s bullshit.

This retired Lieutenant Colonel thinks you still have the right stuff. You just need a different perspective. Kick some Ass Chuck. Kick some Ass.
