Obamacare and My Daughter. “…this surgery will ‘cease to be available in two years for insurance patients due to ObamaCare.’ This is a quote from the flustered nurse at the hospital.” Elections have consequences – the youth who voted for the “cool guy” may end up learning this the hard way.

The doctors were actually pushing for abortion because of three fused fingers? They would kill a little girl because one hand wasn’t perfect? Did they go to the Joseph Mengele school of medicine?

At the Sacramento Karz for Kidz benefit yesterday, I took two little girls for a ride on Vlad first thing in the morning. Sisters, one about a year old, one about two and a half. Their smiles were so beautiful. It made my day. How could anyone ever consider hurting them?

(Edit) And if one of them had a hand that wasn’t exactly perfect, their smiles would have affected me exactly the same way.

Down Syndrome children are some of the happiest and most loving children around, but they get aborted about 90% of the time.

And there is a wide variety of the level of development of Down’s children. While some are rther severely affected, some are able to attend school, live independant;y, hold a simple job (like McDOnald’s which my local honor student high schoolers can’t seem to do) and live a relatively normal life. They do have helath issues, but again, the severity varies. I had my son in my mid forties and I was offered an amniocentesis looking for birth defects, particularly down’s due to my age. I declined. THe doctor asked why and I said becaue it wouldn’t make any difference. I wouldn’t abort. She asked didn’t I want to know to be better prepared? As a nurse, I told her I dodnt thnk knowing would make any difference, and there was a small risk of losing the pregnancy after an amnio. I said I would assume my pregnancy was normal, and take things as they come. Later they were concerned he was not growing adequately. When all was said and done, my son was delivered normally at 9 lbs7 oz, and later his IQ was tested at around 165-170. This from a child who gets bored with the test, so rushed through the last part.

They don’t want the lifetime responsibility which MAY occur. It is a challlege to handle kids with ANY problems, but there are worsse things than Down’s. Just like as birth defects go, Cleft lip or patatte may LOOK awful, but it is a snap to fix.

There’s a lot of different types of Down Syndrome, and a lot of different levels. For someone to abort a child because of the possibility of it, is just shirking responsibility. They don’t want the “burden” of an “imperfect” child.

I love playing with the Down Syndrome kids, taking them for rides on my horses. They appreciate life, and it’s little pleasures.

That is the part that is most disturbing. What is this desire for bodily perfection? Why would they ASSUME that the Mother wanted a perfectly LOOKING child? That is insane to me.

I used to think that the only good thing about the last election was the opportunity to rub the O voters nose the crap they made for themselves, and everybody else. But the Commiemedia will simply make some absurd comment about how it is all the Stupid Party’s fault and the zombies will suck it up and the Stupid Party will say nothing in their own defense.

Don’t look at me, I voted for Ron Paul. And he would have won if Romney didn’t cheat.

I’ve said it before. Crowley, put your hand in a bucket of water, pull it out and see how big a hole it leaves, That’s how important you are to me…

Better yet, foot in a bucket of water and finger in a light socket.

Ah, that brings back memories, PJ.

Are you going to share those memories now that you got my curiosity up?

flashingscotsman

Well, not actually memories, just pictures I’ve drawn in my mind based on what people told me. I wasn’t there for most of the electrocution, I lost consciousness immediately, died somewhere along the way, and woke up looking at paramedics. But I took 12,000 volts for 15 seconds or so, standing in water up to my knees.

Many thanks to the paramedics of Huntington Beach, CA.

Absolutely. I have friends that can’t handle licking one 9v. I make them think I’m crazy by doing 4 or 5 at a time.

In all actuality, my highly charged accident gave me serious respect, possibly even fear, of electricity. But nine volts? Fun to play with.

poppajoe49

Licking the terminals?

I LOVE playing with 9 volt batteries!

Okay the most we will let you play with is a nine volt battery! That’s amazing. Without those paramedics this would be a boring place…:)

I wish there had been a video camera running, though.

I figure the water up to my knees is what kept my feet from being blown off. Larger area of dissipation and all, no arcing.

RobertW

probably a good thing you have no recollection of the incident.

on the other hand, you coulda said

“I CAN SEE MY HOUSE FROM HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERe.

poppajoe49

I took 12,000 volts once, but it was only the high voltage power supply for a spectrum analyzer, very low amperage, which is what really does the damage.
That said, it knocked me off of my work station, and I lost sight and hearing for about 30 seconds. It’s probably a good thing you have no recollection of the incident.

Nobody is looking at you or even wants to…….since you have the intelligence of a box of manure.

“I voted for Ron Paul, I voted for Ron Paul, I voted for Ron Paul, I voted for Ron Paul”…..You sound like a parrot on meth. Remember that the other candidates got just.005 percent of the vote. How does it feel to be among the stupidest people on the planet? Your vote was the exact same as if you voted for Roseanne Barr…Sore looser? Or just sorry assed welfare collector?

I don’t believe he really did at all. He’s gotta be some kind of leftard shil. Nobody else could really be this stupid.

jcrowley1985

I can assure you I did; it’s your choice to believe it or not. But it was a smarter move realizing that the two main candidates were both sellouts to Corporate Greed.

If Romney didn’t steal the nomination, Paul would have gotten a lot more votes and would have easily beat Obama.

sa_rose

Delusion, thy name is creepy crowley. This is a joke, right? You dont REALLY believe that a man who could not get enough votes in the primaries to even be close y beat a sitting President? Really. WOW! You are dumber than I thought. And believe me, I thought you were pretty dumb! It people like you the electoral college was designed for.

Well that’s natural. After all, you’re meek and uninteresting. Until now you’ve gotten by on my leftover charisma, scrounging off it like a tiny charisma parasite.
