From the Idaho Health and Welfare Application for Benefits:

Do I Have to Be a Citizen?

No. Please do not let fear of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) keep you from seeking needed benefits for your family. Receiving health coverage, Food Stamps, and child care for your eligible children will not prevent you from gaining lawful, permanent residence or U.S. citizenship, or from sponsoring relatives, if you can support them....

Our health Care

What's wrong with our countries health care system?   Well here is a great example.   I was talking to a lady today who has severe arthritis in her hands.   Her finger is bent back to a point where it is touching her palm and is very painful. 

She needs to go to her doctors office but she doesn't have the $30 co-pay so will be visiting the ER instead.   I asked if her insurance would cover the ER visiting 100%.  She believes it will. 

Now first off.. what is the sense of paying 100% for an ER visit but not 100% for a doctors office visit?  

Second.. do you see a problem here?  If someone who HAS insurance still can't afford to go to the doctor what about the millions of Americans who have NO insurance?

Can't Blame White People

I think we should all write in and vote Bill Cosby for President!
Can't Blame White People
by Bill Cosby

They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.
I can't even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
And then I heard the father talk
Everybody knows it's important to speak English...
except these knuckleheads.
Mushmouth is what they speak!?
You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of
your mouth.
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an
and now we've got these knuckleheads throwing that all away.?
The lower economic people are not holding up their end in
this deal.
These people are not parenting.
They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what?
And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry
when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
Where were you when he was 2?
Where were you when he was 12?
Where were you when he was 18?
And, how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?
And where is the father?
Or who is his father?
People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?
People with their hats on backward,
pants down around the crack,
isn't that a sign of something?
They're walking around with their nasty underwear showing,
holding onto their pants to keep them from falling to the

Or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up?
Isn't it a sign of something
when she has her dress all the way up to her panty line,
and got all types of needle piercings
going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from?
We are not Africans.
Those people are not Africans;
they don't know a thing about Africa.
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of
that crap, and all of them are in jail.
Brown or black versus the Board of Education
is no longer the white person's problem.
We have got to take the neighborhood back.
People used to be ashamed.
Today a woman has eight children
with eight different 'husbands' --
or men or whatever you call them now.
We have millionaire football players
who cannot read.
We have million-dollar basketball players
who can't write two paragraphs.
We as black folks have to do a better job.
Someone working at Wal-Mart
with seven kids saying...
you are hurting us.
We have to start holding each other
to a higher standard.
We cannot blame the white people any longer.
It is not for media or anyone of this time
anymore to say whether I'm right or wrong.
It is time, ladies and gentlemen,
to look at the numbers.
Fifty percent of our children are dropping out
of high school.
Sixty percent of the incarcerated males
happen to be illiterate. There's a correlation.
Tell the media to stop asking me what I think about people
who don't believe what I'm saying or feel that I'm too harsh
or feel that I'm just running my mouth because I'm old.
Seventy percent of the teenagers pregnant happen to be
African American girls.
Don't ask me to soften my message.

I know its been awhile.  I have had a lot of stuff going on in my head to write about though.. Today what bugs me is people.  Now I realize people bug me most of the time but Im talking about people who knowingly do whats wrong and don't feel any remorse about it at all. 
I was on a message board recently where someone posted about an ebook they wrote.  This ebook tells you how to cheat companies that are paying good money for research.  I had to speak up and say I thought that this was wrong.  Low and behold.. another member said she disagreed with me.. she had been using this tactics for awhile and didn't think it really hurt the companies at all.  Now this might not be a big deal but I don't like people who lie, cheat or steal in any segment of the world.  The only time I can imagine myself doing so would be to feed my children and even then I would probably have to go back someday and repay the person I stole from and confess.. When you look at the world around us you will easily see a lot of different people who have no qualms about lying cheating or stealing.. why is it so hard to just be honest and where do these people learn that it's okay to do or be anything other than honest?

O.J. Simpson Show/Book Cancelled!

How is this for the power of the people?  They have cancelled the O.J. Simpson Book and Interview calling it "ill advised".  Well duh!  Now yes, I am one of those who would have watched it and I would have even read the book.  Heck I would have even BOUGHT the book if the money were going to go to Nicoles children.  However, the money should not have been going to O.J. and there are claims from his side that he wasn't going to recieve the money but that it was going to a third party.  Rumor is though, that a third party funnelled the money to O.J. 
The one thing I noticed this morning in the interview with Denise Brown was that she said O.J. is "ego driven".  I can actually see that.  Was this whole deal about the money, about telling the truth or just Simpsons way of getting back into the spotlight?

O.J. Simpson Writes a Book

The "Trial of the Century" is baaackkk.  O.J. Simpson Writes a Book. Can you believe it?   Personally, Im glad it is back.  Yes, I was one of those who watched it everyday and if I wasn't home I actually took the time to tape it and I don't tape anything!  I watched the tapes religiously every night.  Hmmm I think I have a hard time using the term "religiously" in conjuction with this case! 
So now here we are, 11 years later and NOW O.J. wants to speak up.  Of course he isn't going to come out and say he did it but like one of the producers I am viewing the book and show as a confession.  Why on earth would you write a book about how you would have done it if it had been you?  More publicity?  Is he hurting for money?  Ever heard of a job? 
I realize a lot of people find this completely sick and distasteful but I for one have been waiting a really long time to hear the truth and think this might be as close as we ever get.  He is untouchable afterall.

Where are we?

 Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the
United States. He stops the first person he sees walking down the street
and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, and
giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care and free education!"
But the passerby says "You are mistaken, I am Mexican". The man goes on
and encounters another passerby. "Thank you for having such a beautiful
country here in America
!" The person says "I no American, I Vietnamese."
The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops,
shakes his hand and says "Thank you for the wonderful
America!" That
person puts up his hand and says "I am from
Middle East, I am not an
American!" He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you an
American?" She says, "No, I am from
Russia!" So he is puzzled, and asks
her, "Where are all the Americans?" The Russian lady looks at her watch,
shrugs, and says... "Probably at work...."
