GIVE TIL IT HURTS!

Cards, Flowers and Big Tiddy Strip-O-Grams

Got the addy of where they go Mike stashed. I actually talked to him today and boy-howdy, he’s in an especially ornery mood, as well he should be. He’s also high as all get the hell out on the good stuff. Bad news is the infection is now on his spine… they’re working it, and it’s ‘minor’ for the sake of minor, but he’s still kicking, and as I told him only the good die young…

So He’s at

 CaroMont Regional Medical Center 2525 Court Dr, Gastonia, NC 28054

I know I’ve annoyed y’all enough but any love you can show him is much appreciated, as he said “I’m trapped here naked, eatin’ shitty food, and for some reason one of my legs is missing!!!”
The ‘good stuff’ indeed.

So yeah, no calls to him however. He’s got to rest and get better, so don’t be blowing up the fon there Aye?

Much Love to Everyone and Prayers for my Brother From Another Mother

So…now you’ve got a great reason to get a custom bike!

Get well soon, OG BlogBrother.

Glad you got to speak with Mike and thanks for the report.

Still in our prayers. You tough sumbitch.

You ever have suggestions go terribly, terribly wrong?

About a month ago it came up in conversation that some days Mike wasn’t sure he was going to make it another four months. I suggested that if he really had doubts about it, and wasn’t just joking around and wasn’t playing chicken with garbage trucks or anything like that, then maybe he might go see a doctor.

So now Mike’s spent more time with doctors than he had in probably the previous ten years and I feel really guilty about it. Sorry, dude.

I have a pretty low opinion of doctors, in general. Some are quite good of course. If you’re ill or have physical issues, the intensive care units are usually pretty good. I never worried too much about my late friend when he was in intensive care units. The real problems occur when they are out.

I have a pretty low opinion of doctors, in general.

Likewise, with the caveat that some of them could do better — put in more time and attention, make better diagnoses — if not for the utterly broken medical business system in the United States.

Some doctors, of course, would be arrogant assholes with god complex no matter the system. And some nurses would be burned-out misanthropes who are continuing to work only because they don’t have another way to make a living.

I haven’t seen a medical doctor in fifteen years, except to get antibiotics for an injury that went bad. (When the veins in your forearm turn black, it’s a sign…) I’m healthy and energetic, and seeing a doctor for a checkup is more bullshit than benefit.

Barry

Ditto that.
I’ve been to the hospital to have my gall bladder removed about 10 years ago. I’ve only been to a doctor for physicals (required for the racing license) and once a couple years ago for an infected cut that went badly, something that had never occurred before.

IMO, most doctors are trained but not highly intelligent. They have a good enough memory to remember what matches the symptoms but nothing more. That requirement is practically void now, just have the nurse enter the info and voila, all the possibility’s come up.

Why, it’s almost as though no doc is required anymore*

*See my earlier comment for the exception. Intensive care is a different story.

So you’re saying we should get AOC and Ms. McCain to visit him and strip???

kennycan

You want to give him heart failure as well?

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
