MY AVM STORY – AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE

 

Eleven years ago, yours truly was suffering badly from migraines, so the neurologists finally ordered an MRI of my head. (Folks had always said I needed my head examined)

Voila, they discovered I had a one-inch thick AVM (Arteriovenous Malformation) in the back of my brain, which had probably been growing there since birth. In a nutshell, an AVM is a grouping of tangled veins and arteries which, if bleeding occurred (like an aneurism) could cause death and/or permanent disability.

Doctors insisted I go for further tests and treatment. They said, the likelihood of bursting increases at a rate of three percent per year, and at this point I had just entered my 60s.

Very worrisome, indeed. Three options were: surgery, radiation or gamble doing nothing. I’ve always been a loser at gambling. I won’t even stop at a one-armed bandit in Vegas.

Suzanne and I traveled to Emory University in Atlanta, where the world’s top experts in AVM treatment and surgery were available. My surgeon said it was very serious, but to further pinpoint matters, he ordered a series of tests which involved scans, dyes, arteriograms, and much more.

While being prepped, with hospital gown and tubes hanging from my body, the doctor had me sign a stack of papers on a clipboard, all warning of a small chance that I could die or be reduced to a blithering idiot from the procedure, and there would be no one to sue.

As I started with the blue-ink ball-point pen, I hesitated with second thoughts. I summoned my wife, to talk. I told her, “I came here feeling really good. I’m going to leave here feeling really good.”

I said to the doc, “Give me my clothes, I’m walking out.” Startled, he said no one had ever done that before. “Well, there’s a first time for everything.” This time, I would gamble and take my chances. If I underwent the operation they could claim surgery a success, though I’d be reduced to a blithering mumbler, unable to talk or function normally.

It was certainly a risk. If I died, I figured would be a quick and painless event.

Five years later, in 2004, a follow-up MRI showed — amazingly — that the AVM had diminished in size.

Six years later, July 2010, I underwent another follow-up MRI.

It’s gone.

The report indicates a very small residue present only visible through enhancement (dye). Now it’s difficult to even see where it was.

I don’t recommend this attitude for everyone, or anyone. Going against medical advice is risky. This is one time I decided to take my chances because I feared being disabled — and a burden to others — more than I feared death.

I don’t know why or how this AVM dissipated.

Neither do I care.

I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in my life, but this was definitely not one of them.

Thought I’d share the story with others. Glean your own messages.

PORT CHESTER, NY. ONE MAN, SIX VOTES

 

I’m putting this out on blog so it will get maximum coverage.

A NY voting district in Port Chester, NY, has been approved for a measure to allow Latino voters 6 votes per candidate, in an effort to bring on more Latinos in elected office. (Huh?)

That’s right, folks.

Amazingly, in November, 2009, a federal Judge approved the measure! Yes, that means a white voter gets one vote for any candidate he or she wants, and a Latino voter gets 6 votes for whomever he or she wants.

See the 3 minute news video for yourself:

Click here: YouTube -Port Chester NY gives Latinos 6 votes per person!

I’ll bet, there are some liberal minded people who read this who will say…So What? Big deal? Please write in if you do, I’d like to hear the rationale.

See the trend, folks? Minority profiling is legal, minority racism is legal.

The seeds plant. The constitution is on the way out, anarchy is on the way in.

By the way, the federal judge who approved this travesty, is also a minority (surprise!). And, he was an appointee of President G.W. Bush.

Hopefully, they will take it to the appellate level or higher and overturn this decision for ad infinitum. If not, the disease for skewing democracy will spread like wildfire.

Imagine next…California? New Mexico?

And then special voting laws for Islamists in Dearborn and Minneapolis?

Stay tuned. It’s just beginning.

 

 

TWELVE RANDOM PREDICTIONS: JULY 2010

 

1) I believe Barack Obama will not serve out his four-year term, and will likely be out of office by this time next year. (For one reason or another).

2) After January of 2011, hard evidence of Obama’s presidential illegitimacy will surface necessitating a congressional investigation that results in his impeachment and/or resignation from office…that being the likely basis for removal from office.

3) Joe Biden will assume the Oval Office and — based on powerful signals from the American electorate — will shift much of the Democratic focus from left, to center in the political spectrum, based on powerful signals from the American electorate.

4) A significant shift in congressional power will take place after November’s mid-term election resulting in Republican majority in the House and Senate. (Which is partly why # 2 will happen)

5) Hillary Clinton will resign as Secretary Of State after the mid-term elections. She will run for president in 2012, and win the Democratic nomination. This will occur regardless if Obama or Biden is in office.

6) We will see another major terrorist attack in the U.S. within the next twelve months.

7) The Afghan war will come to an abrupt halt before the end of 2011. Afghanistan will resume as a hub for terrorist training and the Taliban will assume control of the country again. Thus, all for naught.

8) The economy will worsen following the Afghan pull-out because unemployment will rise to higher levels with a reduction in the war machine. With the Republicans controlling the congress, they will bear the brunt of blame from media.

9) Before the end of 2010, Israel will embark on a military strike in Syria and Iran in order to neutralize their Nuke weapons and delivery system. The UN ( and our current administration) will condemn Israel while Muslims erupt into demonstrations and violence throughout the mid-east, Europe and the U.S.

10) The Justice Department, under Eric Holder, will initiate legal efforts to curtail free speech in the conservative radio and television networks, mainly by reviving a version of the Fairness Doctrine. A new Republican congress will nullify that.

11) Appellate courts will uphold the lower court ruling which diminished the Arizona Anti-Illegal immigration law. However, the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn those rulings and uphold the state’s right to defend itself. Later, another twenty or more states will pass similar laws.

12) France and England will increasingly become the focus of Islamic unrest in Europe as Sharia Law flexes its mighty muscle.

In regards to prediction # 1, Obama’s fall could result one of three ways. With so many Americans passionately opposed to him, it would not be surprising to see an attempt on his life by some nutball like Oswald or Booth. That would not be a good thing, because such an event would martyr Obama and bolster his legacy in the biased media. In addition, black communities throughout America would explode into uprising. Next; deep reverence, tributes and monuments and anyone who suggested negative thoughts about the Obama presidency would be cast as a racist bigot, facts notwithstanding.

These all are simple predictions based as one American who stands witness to the trends taking place today in the world. I certainly hope I am wrong about some of them.

What say you?

FACTS PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT ISLAM

 
July 3, 2010. On the Joe Citizen Radio Show in South Florida, a leader within the Muslim American Society (MAS) told a bald-faced lie to the listeners following an important question posed by the host. The guest, Ibrahim Ramey, highly educated and a lifelong devout “moderate” Muslim, stated he had never heard of the term: Taqiyya. When asked, he hemmed and hawed and pretended to misunderstand. Fact: Every educated Muslim knows the meaning of Taqiyya, particularly leaders. No exceptions. Thus, Mr. Ramey, who was portraying Islam as a misunderstood, peaceful and honorable religion, had just practiced Taqiyya himself, i.e., an act of deliberate deceit, forgiven by Allah if it furthers the advancement of Islam.
More later.
First: The following link is one of the best-ever video productions I’ve seen about the subject. It presents three important facts most people do not know about Islam. In eight short minutes, it digs into the core for those who are uninformed or otherwise living with rose-colored glasses, refusing to see the truth. Before going any further, please watch:
Click here: YouTube – Three Things About Islam
My only criticism of this video is that it should have pointed out four, not three, facts about Islam that most non-Muslims do not know. The fourth being: Islam is not just a religion, but a strict form of government, with its own set of laws that must be followed, under threat of severe punishment. That is what sets Islam apart from Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism and others.
In the past, some folks have challenged my so-called “intolerance” toward the Islam, claiming Islam is no different than other religions, and we should give Islam equal religious protection under the constitution. But when a fascist form of government is veiled in religious ideology, that changes the playing field. We, — non-Muslims — should all pay heed to the groundwork that’s being laid for the future of America. Meanwhile, many people — and the media — turn a blind eye and call me names for even suggesting it.
To the naysayers, I ask: What if I’m right? What if the evidence is right? What if the thousands of scholars, ex-Muslims and experts on Islam who say the same — are right? What if the active and vocal Jihad Muslims who boldly declare the coming of Islam, are right? By 2050, it will be too late, much as it is now in modern day France and England.
Since I researched my book “Militant Islam In America,” in 2006, in which I stumbled across shocking discoveries, I’ve endeavored to share my newfound knowledge with as many Americans as possible in an attempt to forewarn and help people to understand the nascent threat that America — and our grandchildren — will face as time passes. It is not just a political blog, it’s an obligation, as a caring American. I receive nothing for this. By learning what looms on the horizon, people can take control of our country and vote at the polls wisely, thus using their “power” to prevent a virtual disaster down the road.
That has not happened — yet. Quite the opposite.
What people do not know and refuse to believe, is that the future of Islam governing the United States is imminent. As an issue, it is more important — far more consequential — in total, than the wars, the economy, racism, immigration, party affiliation or any other short-sighted issue. It is what we are leaving to our children’s children.
I’ve pointed out, through many articles how the Muslim Brotherhood, who controls most of the infiltration and Islamic-based turmoil in the entire world, has set about on a path to destroy western society, (using their own written words) — “from within” — and they have thus far been quite successful. The movement is on track. It would require an article of a hundred pages, not four, to point out all the examples.
This following message is for my friends who choose to discount this reality, who may have the best of intentions and motives in their hearts but are failing their grandkids.
This is not about Republican versus Democrat….get that out of your head. This is not about right wing and left wing, or belonging to one political ideology or another. When Islam rules, the American political party system will no longer exist. History books will be re-written so that children in the 22nd century won’t even know who George Washington ever was. The Statue of Liberty will be long gone and the U.S. Capitol will become the largest mosque in the world.
We all want to believe that there are good Muslims in the world and that the majority are peaceful. That may, in part, be true. But … it doesn’t matter! Their voice is insignificant, destined to be drowned by the Jihadists (non-violent as well as violent) who will dominate, just like they dominate in strict Islamic countries today. And then, the existing “good” Muslims will enjoy approval while non-Muslims will be enslaved, vanquished or vanished.
From the day Muhammed died, Islam set out to dominate all human life on earth, and that objective has never abated in 1400 years. It’s not starting now.
To better understand Islam, I beg you to study the history of how Islam spread throughout the world (it wasn’t through peaceful means); Study the life of Muhammed, who rose to Islamic power as much through violence as through evangelism; Read the Koran and understand how and why the passages are contradictory, and the chronology of when and how old passages are nullified by newer passages, all of which declare Islam supreme and incites violence and disgrace upon non-Muslims. Read it. It’s there for the asking.
The video amply points out the huge differences between religious books, like the Bible and the Koran, and that the Koran is basically the product of one human being, who told his followers he had a connection to God, and they believed him, and they believed everything he decreed to be true, even if it meant punishing those who disagreed. Most folks who argue with me, simply have not done their homework. They shoot from the hip, and accuse me of being a right wing bigot. They have not studied the strategy of conquering “from within” nor do they know about “Taqiyya,” the Islamic caveat that permits and encourages deception and lies in order to spread Islam.
 
So, when I see a huge mosque being planned within a stones throw to the 9/11 tragedy, while a New York City mayor blathers its politically correct approval — despite the wishes of the great majority of New Yorkers — it is one sampling which tells me they have won. Behind closed doors, the Islamic powers are rejoicing in victory, one more step toward their ultimate goal.
Then, of course, there is the president — the best friend of Islam this government ever had, and that Islam could have ever hoped for in this time of our history.
I’ll save that for another blog.
