Treatment Of Seniors – Prison or Nursing Home

America I am passionate, but you don’t care about your elderly…Your formulas are outdated. …many seniors are in one room dwellings crammed with their lives in 2 drawers…They work for years…pensions and 401K tricked their savings to live life on a tight budget…You discourage seniors marrying, so many shack to keep checks they’ve earned…oh all seniors don’t have cars…mass transit and cab prices still climbing …..So….

Bonnie Jean Hern
Bonnie Jean HernThis is so true, and it’s pitiful that it is that way. Why is it that whenever there is any talking about cutbacks, Social Security and Medicare are always on the chopping block? It seems that America feels like seniors are replaceable and disposable once they retire. It’s just not right for seniors to be treated the way that they are being treated. The Veterans get treated badly also. America should be ashamed of the way she treats those two groups of people.
 The story below makes good sense actually. At first you may be appalled at it, but once you read it you will understand the sanity of it. It sure does make good sense to me.                 The URL to the story is:    

Let’s put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.

Jails and Nursing Homes

Here’s the way it should be:

Let’s put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.

This would correct two things in one motion:

Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical
treatment, wheel chairs, etc.

They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.

They would have constant video montering, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes.

All meals and snacks would be brought to them

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education…and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists.

Simple clothing – ie., shoes, slippers, pj’s – and legal aid would be free, upon request.

There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens.

Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost.

They would receive daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection.

The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their families from abuse or neglect.

****************************************************************************** The statements below point out all that the criminals deserve. They don’t deserve all of the amenities that they receive in jail. After all, they are there to be punished for a crime they committed against society, not to be on vacation!!!


As for the criminals:

They would receive cold food.

They would be left alone and unsupervised.

They would receive showers once a week.

They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month.

They would have no hope of ever getting out.

“Sounds like justice to me!”


When you stop and actually think about it, this really makes a lot of sense. It’s a poor state of affairs for our nation when it makes more sense to put seniors in jail than to put them in nursing homes. It sure would save a lot of money. If the criminals families had to pay for their incarceration at the same rate as what it costs to have a family member in a nursing home. If the families of the criminals had have taught the children to be better citizens, maybe they would not have committed the crimes that put them in jail in the first place. But with all of the amenities that prisoners get, it makes more sense for them to commit crimes to be locked up. It’s better than being homeless and living out of trashcans and under bridges.

If half of what is put out for the incarceration of criminals was spent on helping to lower the cost of providing for seniors, whose only crime is that they have lived a good life and can no longer take care of their self, then the families of the seniors could rest a little easier. But as it is right now, the family of the senior citizen has to all but become homeless to provide nursing home care for their family member. It’s really quite sad when you stop and think about it.

The New American Way Of Life – Go Figure

This was on my Facebook yesterday 1/24/16. Americans that are not taking the government for a spin need to fight against this kind of dishonesty. It’s people like this that keep those that really need the help from getting it. I am totally disabled and have been since I lost both of my jobs in June of 1990. Even then after my asthma got under control, I went back to school, graduated from the community college and worked until the place where I worked let me go because I was too disabled. Now I don’t even qualify for $10 in food stamps. I have an artificial bladder and my medical expenses for the supplies for it are high. The supplies are:

ABD pads at $57 per case every two months

depends (at $37 per case per month) to go over the ABD pads,so my clothes aren’t wet all of the time,

Co-pay on medicine($6 to $9 per month) to go in the bladder for two hours a day,

60cc syringes to irrigate the bladder $3 each,

10cc syringes to deflate and another one to inflate the balloon on the catheter $1.50 each

Saline to irrigate the bladder,

Sterile Water to inflate the balloon so the catheter won’t come out of my bladder (both the saline and the sterile water are $48 per case of 12 bottles),

catheters to be inserted into my abdomen on into the bladder at $13 each(Medicare will only allow 1 per month) and I need more than the one per month due to mucous build up from the bladder being made from my intestines and the intestines producing mucous and clogging the catheter(the intestines does not know that it is a bladder now),

drainage bags $10 each(Medicare allows 2 per month, no allowance for bags getting leaks in them and needing to be replaced)

washable pads for my bed so I won’t ruin my mattress when the bladder leaks during my sleep and soaks the bed $10 each,(I currently have 12 pads, but they are getting holes in them after 15 years of use. I need to replace them)etc –

The expense of the supplies doesn’t matter to the food stamp place though.

Oh, by the way I’m white. I guess if I was black I could get all kinds of help.

And the blacks think they are being mistreated? Go figure! And all the blacks can scream is discrimination.

I think I am a victim of reverse discrimination when it comes to receiving benefits from the government.

The blacks no longer have any reason to be so upset. They receive everything and all they have to do is sit on their lazy butts all day from the day they graduate and have several illegitimate children and get everything for the children too. And when questioned about getting a job say that they don’t need to get a job because they get a check from the government every month.

In the mean time people like me, who worked from the time I graduated high school until I became disabled, and then even after I got stable enough to retrain for another job, up until I got fired by my employer for being absent too much for having to have too many surgeries, can’t get diddly from the government.


New American Way Of Life

And the black people wonder why the white people are so upset with them. It’s because so many of them are so lazy it’s a wonder they can even breathe, that breathing doesn’t take too much effort for them to do it.

I’m not a racist either. I have many friends that are African American, and I respect them very much. But the ones that abuse the government and get benefits by being so lazy and dishonest just infuriate the heck out of me.

I worked too hard for too long to be treated the way I get treated just because I’m white and I’m honest. But at least my Mother brought me up right.

Social Security – SSI – Social Security Disability Income – WELFARE

This article is the result of quite a bit of frustration on my part, resulting from all of the trouble and hard times that I go through everyday. My life, due to being disabled and not even having enough money to buy medical things that I need, clothes, or hardly anything else for that matter. As the article will point out, I have worked and or gone to school since the day I graduated from High School until the day I became disabled, and even after that. I have struggled for more years than the woman in the video (later in this article) can even imagine, yet she gets handed everything, from the government, on a silver platter so to speak, or at least it seems that way to me.

The definitions of the government programs are as I perceive these programs to be, from what I have seen and heard.

Social Security – The payment that is received every month once a person retires, at or after the age of 62. Payments have been made into this program by withdrawals being made every payday from the employee’s paycheck. There is usually medical insurance and retirement payments from the employer, where the employee is retiring. They also qualify to obtain Medicare and pay whatever co-pays are left, after their retirement insurance has paid first and Medicare has paid their part.

Supplemental Security Income – A payment that is usually made to someone that has been born with a defect that prevents them from being able to earn a living. Sometimes a payment is made from the Supplemental Security Income program to people that have become disabled later in life. This is true if the person is on what is called a PASS, Plan for Achieving Self Support, after having been re-trained, by Vocational Rehabilitation, to do something other than what they could do before they became disabled. While they are receiving the Supplemental Security Income payments, they also receive a Medicaid card. The Medicaid card pays ALL MEDICAL BILLS and PRESCRIPTIONS ARE ONLY $1. They automatically qualify for food stamps also.

Social Security Disability Income – When a person becomes disabled later in life, and they have worked at least three months in the past year, they are eligible to receive Social Security Disability Income. This is only after they have been off work for six months. During this time they do not have any medical insurance, and no money. They have to depend on family and friends for everything. After a period of two years, they qualify for Medicare to pay for many of their medical bills with leaving a 20% co-pay to be paid by the disabled person. When they qualify for Medicare Part D, they have to pay for the prescription insurance and co-pays an all of their prescriptions that are covered. If by chance a prescription is not covered, then they have to pay for the full amount of the prescription. If they are lucky, they may qualify for $10 in food stamps. At least that is what happened to me. I had to save my food stamps for two months to even be able to afford peanut butter, jelly and bread. What a laugh. Most disabled people, just by the nature of them being disabled, have more medical bills than the normal person does. Their money does not go very far at all. The disability is barely enough to pay for rent, utilities, some food, medical co-pays, prescription co-pays, medical supplies, and transportation. If there is enough left they can buy some clothes. It would be nice if they could receive just $1 in Supplemental Security Income and then they would get a Medicaid card and food stamps.

If by chance they are like I was, they worked too long and made too much money to qualify for any Supplemental Security Income and a Medicaid card. I worked from the time I graduated High School in 1970 and then graduated from Business College in 1971, up until I became disabled in 1989. I worked a full time job and a part time job for the last five years of that time. I lost both jobs on the same day. It took doctors from 1989 until 1993 to find the magical combination of medication to control my asthma attacks enough for me to go back to school. At the time I started attending the community college where I live, I was pulling oxygen tanks behind me and had to wear a medical face mask to be able to attend. The month that I started attending school, I found out that I was diabetic. I was still having asthma attacks, but not every 7-10 days like I had been doing for the last four years. I was only able to attend classes on a half time basis. This meant that I would have to attend classes for twice as long as most of the other students did.

I started attending the community college in May of 1993 and graduated, With Honors in May of 2000. I actually finished in December of 1999, but the graduation ceremonies weren’t until May of 2000. During the time that I was attending the community college I underwent eleven surgeries.

When I started attending the community college, I had planned on becoming a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I wanted to help people with breathing problems the same way that all of the respiratory care professionals helped me every time that I was rushed to the hospital or admitted for my breathing issues. However, in January of 1995, I ended up in a wheelchair and had to change my major. I had just been accepted into the respiratory care program. I was heartbroken. I chose computers. I didn’t think that there was any way possible to do respiratory care from a wheelchair. A person can do computers from a wheelchair. Once I ended up in a wheelchair, I had to start going to physical therapy in the pool at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital. Medical appointments now took up more time than going to school did. I ended up in leg braces from up on my thighs clear under my feet. I had to trade in my car for a full sized van, as I could not steer my car correctly due to the braces hitting the steering wheel. Then I got to where I could no longer propel my wheelchair due to my orthopedic problems, I had to start using a scooter. This made it necessary for me to get someone to make a ramp to get my scooter in and out of my van. Luckily, this was during one of my surgeries, and my Mom and Pop were helping me while I was recuperating from it.  My Pop made me a ramp for the van, a ramp to get into the patio in the back of my apartment, and a ramp to get into the apartment itself. I had paid $600 to have a ramp professionally built out the front of the apartment when I first moved in. Unfortunately that ramp was not wide enough for the scooter to make the turn into the front door of the apartment, so I was unable to use it. But I did not give up, I persevered.

My van needed some minor repairs on week, and I had to use the Red Cross Wheels Bus transportation. There were two very old buses that were still being used at the time. When the bus arrived to take me home from school, I was unlucky enough to get one of those buses. I had only had my scooter for less than six weeks. Unfortunately those older buses had shorter lifts than the newer buses did. Every time that I was on one of those buses I would have to very precariously place the front wheel of my scooter as close to the edge of the ramp as was possible without going off of the ramp. This had to be done very slowly and precisely. This particular day I was about one inch short. The bus driver told me to come forward very slowly. I barely touched the control switch to make the scooter move. As soon as I touched it, the scooter lurched forward and was hanging off of the front end of the ramp. The bus driver was hanging on to the front end of the scooter while trying to lower the lift and I was sitting back and leaning back as far as I could to try to make the scooter come backwards. By the grace of my gracious God, the driver and I were able to lower the lift, and the scooter with me on it, safely to the ground. I took the scooter the next day to the medical supply dealer where I had purchased it. They discovered that the potentiometer was malfunctioning and replaced it. Mine was the first one that had ever done that.

One day in September of 1997, when I was leaving school, I was about to push the scooter up into the van, but gave it a second thought. My abdomen was hurting from where I had had to have the first of my bladder surgeries, a few months earlier in April. I looked at the ramp leaning up against the back entrance to the van and looked at the scooter. After having pushed the scooter up into the van so many times, I knew that the ramp could handle the weight of the scooter and my weight also. It was at that moment that I decided to ride the scooter up into the van and duck my head as I was about to enter the van. Well, as I was saying that I could do it, gravity proved me wrong. The scooter and I both went rolling backwards down the ramp and the scooter and I ended up with me on my back looking up at the sky ant the back end of the scooter flat on the ground with the handle bar and controls pointing up to the sky as well. Luckily there were two men in the parking lot at the time. They were on different sides of the parking lot and both came running toward me. They both arrived at my side at the same time. They helped me up and asked me if I was hurt. I assured them that I wasn’t, and they proceeded to lift my scooter up into the van for me. After the scooter was safely in the van, they looked at each other and both agreed that they would have done the same thing. Once again, I did not give up, I persevered.

I called my Vocational Rehabilitation counselor when I arrived home and told her what had happened. She made arrangements to have a specialist in lifts, for scooters and wheelchairs, to look at my van the next day, and decide what would be the best route to go to alleviate the situation from happening again.

They were watching me push the scooter up into the van as it was starting to rain. I started slipping backwards with the scooter’s weight on the wet ramp. Everybody started grabbing me and the scooter to prevent another accident from happening right there in front of them. The decision was made to have a claw lift put in the back of the van. I took it to the installation business the next day and had the lift put in. They showed me how to secure the claw onto the T Bar under the seat of the scooter and gently push the scooter into the van as the lift was raising it up into the air. For whatever reason, the lift motor burned out in less than three months and another one had to be put in. They did some research and found out that the lift was not heavy duty enough for my scooter. Needless to say, the next lift was a heavy duty lift that was able to accommodate my scooter. Once again, I did not give up, I persevered.

After I graduated from the community college, I obtained a job working at Bank One in Lexington, Kentucky. My classes were done in December of 1999, and I started working in March of 2000. I graduated in May of 2000. Here is a picture of me at work one day.

bonnie at first bank

During my employment I underwent seven surgeries. The most major one was the one where I received my artificial bladder. The second most major one was the artificial knee replacement of my left knee. Unfortunately after the seventh surgery, I lost my job.

I returned to work, after my seventh surgery, and went to sit down at my desk. My supervisor met me and told me not to sit down. She then went on to tell me that I no longer worked there, that I was too disabled to work and had to be absent for too many surgeries. They hired me because they needed somebody to work, nor somebody to be off so much for so many surgeries. And so my ability to work was proven to be an inability instead.

Up until that point I had always been able to say, very proudly, that I was not a quitter. I still do not consider myself a quitter, but I am obviously not employable due to my numerous medical issues.

My family and friends remind me all of the time that the SSDI that I receive is being paid for by them. I remind them that I worked up until I became disabled. Once my medical situation was brought under control. I went back to school, graduated WITH HONORS, got a job and started back to work. I tried as hard as I could. Unfortunately the work force deemed me to be too disabled, due to my numerous medical conditions and surgeries with the resulting absences, to be able to work. They informed me that I could no longer be depended on to be at work, that I was absent too much. Now I have to live with the constant reminder that other people pay for everything that I have. They tell me that I long ago exhausted any money that I contributed to the SSDI that I have been receiving. But I still try to persevere.

What aggravates me the most is that I have always fought to be able to keep going no matter what life has dealt me. But now I am no longer able to do that. The job force doesn’t want me anymore, because of something beyond my control. I have been deemed too disabled to work. And I cannot qualify for a Medicaid card to help with any of my medical expenses. Yes, I do have Medicare, but with all of my medical problems, I have so many medical bills that I am unable to pay the co-pays. And to know that a lazy butt person, like the one in the next section about WELFARE, can sit home on her lazy butt and keep popping out babies, so that the government will have to take care of them, just really aggravates me to the max. They get housing, food stamps and medical expenses, all paid for by the government. Maybe after reading the article and watching the video you will see why I am so aggravated about the whole thing. Hopefully, some day people like this lazy butt woman, will no longer be able to sit home having babies just to qualify for the government to take care of them for all of their sorry lazy butt  lives. And yes, if you can’t tell, I am furious about the whole situation.

WELFARE – A payment that is not earned but is given to someone that has unexpectedly fallen on hard times. This payment is supposed to be for a limited amount of time. It was originally meant to help people to get back on their feet after an unexpected hardship, as in the loss of a job, or loss of a residence due to acts of God as they are called, like tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, or forest fires.

Even though this is what WELFARE started out to be, it is not what it has ended up being. Now days it is a way for lazy butt people to sit back and have one illegitimate baby after another. By having the babies they qualify for government assistance which includes  money for shelter, food stamps, medical care paid in full for all of the children, and money to buy the clothes and such for the children.

I have heard these young women talking on the bus about getting pregnant again because their youngest baby is now 18 months old and the oldest one is 5 years old, and the oldest one’s WIC benefits are about to run out. They can receive WIC benefits for the child until they are five years old. Even after the child is five, they will still receive housing and food stamps due to the number of dependents in the family. So up until the last baby turns eighteen, these lazy butt baby producing women will be supported by the government.

There was even a story, in December of 2014, about a woman that is now 30 years old and has never worked a day in her life. From her picture you can tell that she has nice things. She is single, has four children and has  been on WELFARE since the day she turned 18 years old and graduated from High School. She has on what appears to be very expensive jewelry, and has numerous tattoos (and tattoos are not cheap). She even states in the article that she has no intention of going to work. My question is, “If she can afford the nice clothes, the jewelry and the tattoos, then why can’t she work to pay for it?” “Why does the government continue to pay for all of her basic needs.” “Why haven’t the children been taken away from her and her lazy butt been made to work?”

She says that she doesn’t need to work because she gets a check from the government every month. She receives $780 in food stamps, $500 in tennant payments, WIC, and Medicaid  – which means all of her medical bills are paid in full and prescriptions only cost $1 each. She has even sold her food stamps for cash.



The woman in this video did not say if she smoked or drank, and of course would never admit to doing drugs even if she did them everyday. If the people on WELFARE can afford to smoke, drink, and do drugs, then they don’t deserve to receive WELFARE. Working people have worked hard, just to have part of their money taken away from them for lazy butt people like her. She sees no need to work and therefore does not work. I don’t know, but she looks very able to work to me. I mean, look at my picture. 

bonnie at first bank

Even with all of my limitations, and numerous surgeries, I completed school and then found a job and went to work. I arrived at my interview on a scooter with leg braces, wrist braces, a back brace, and a medical face mask on my face. They still hired me. If I can do it, then a lazy butt, well able bodied person, like her should HAVE to work also. She should not be allowed to stay on government assistance and keep bringing illegitimate children into this society for the government to have to take care of them as well.

Anybody can slip up and have an unexpected pregnancy. If they have a second baby, then they should have to consent to sterilization, so they cannot bring any more children into this society, and the second baby should be taken away. They should not be allowed to keep having babies, just so that they can keep receiving WELFARE. They know that as long as they have a child under five years old they will receive WIC and other government assistance. After all, the government won’t let an innocent child suffer because of their irresponsible parents. Any babies after the first one should be taken away and awarded to someone that can afford them. The government needs to stop rewarding lazy butt women for sitting at home on their lazy butts just popping out one baby after another one for the government to have to take care of. That is not what WELFARE was intended to do.

I will not hesitate to say that if sterilization after the second baby and the second baby being taken away was made law, then there would not be so many illegitimate babies and resulting government assistance being paid out. The government would save a lot of money that way. My point is that something has to be done. The situation with all of these lazy butt women popping out one illegitimate baby after another, so that they can receive government assistance and stay home on their lazy butt and not work, has got to stop. I bet that if some kind of study was done, the results would be that most of the delinquency, lawlessness, and violence is being done by these illegitimate children that did not have a proper father figure or any kind of proper training in their one lazy butt parent environment. Thus the circle continues and even avalanches like a small snowball keeps getting bigger and bigger, until the final explosion happens. Well people, wake up, the explosion is happening now!!!!!



I believe this with all of my heart. I had to have drug tests to work for my money, why shouldn’t lazy butt people have to have  drug tests to receive money too?

Drug Tests for welfare checks

The Comical Conservative


Top of Form

This should be a law in all 50 states. If the working person has to pass drug tests to get and keep a job in order to earn their money, and part of their hard earned money is taken away to help unfortunate people and lazy butt people then the freeloaders that spend the money, should have to pass drug tests also. They should have to have surprise tests too, just like the working person does. If they fail the test, then their benefits should stop. If children are involved, then the children should be taken away. Parents don’t need to do drugs when they have the responsibility of raising children.


I can’t imagine that I am the only person that feels the way that I do. We just have to find a way for this craziness, of just handing out money to lazy butt people, has to stop once and for all. I have a lot of disabled friends that have found jobs, so surely to goodness these able bodied people can find jobs too. I mean, look at my picture.

bonnie at first bank

If I could find a job, with all of the things that I needed to have to work, they can too. I arrived at my interview on a scooter with leg braces, wrist braces, a back brace, and a medical face mask on my face. They still hired me. So tell me again why a perfectly able bodied person cannot find a job?

Family Discovers Disgusting Secret Hiding In Their New Mattress.


Published on May 29, 2015

They will not be shopping at that store ever again after this chilling find. This is the horrible moment a family made a grim discovery inside a newly-purchased mattress.   is the website where this article is originally posted.


Up until now, I always thought that Beautyrest was up in the top mattress makers in the USA. After seeing this, I will not ever buy a Beautyrest Mattress. Not only will I not but a Beautyrest Mattress myself, but I will tell all of my friends not to but one, and to pass the word around what their practice is. Their practice is to cover old disgusting mattresses with new tops and sell them as new mattresses. I also have a website where I try to pass on interesting, informative, and/or important information to my readers. This will definitely be on it, along with the video. Even though the people are speaking Spanish, you can tell from the video exactly what they are talking about. This is just a disgrace for any company to have such shady and disreputable practices as what I have just seen. I hope they get hit with a huge fine and a really bad review from the Better Business Bureau!!!!!

I felt this was important enough to copy in its’ entirety.


Family Discovers Disgusting Secret Hiding In Their New Mattress.

I Feel Sick!


New Mattress

When you buy a new product, you expect a NEW product. Unfortunately for some like the family featured below, new doesn’t mean the same thing for everyone.

Watch as this Spanish-speaking family opens up a bright new mattress – when you see what they found inside, you’ll want to throw up!

They pulled off the protective wrapping of their “brand-new” mattress, and it really looks beautiful and actually well, new. But once they got a whiff of the abhorrent smell emanating from the mattress, they knew something was definitely wrong.

So they started pulling it apart and someone grabbed the video camera – luckily they were able to document the whole experience.

On the inside of the mattress they found mold, mildew and all sorts of disgusting junk. They kept removing the padding and found that this wasn’t a new mattress at all, just an old disgusting one with a new coat of paint – or in this case, a mattress cover.

Deceitful business practices like this are unacceptable in every case – it’s insane that the company even thought that they could get away with this scheme. Unfortunately for them, most people have noses though.

What do you think should happen to the company that decided to try and sell such a horrible product? Sound off in the comments!


Do You Support The Cross?


I will put this notice on my post from now on, every time that I copy a post from Facebook, so all of my readers will know that this is not my work, but that of someone else. This, like so many of my posts have, came from Facebook. The article was from Fox & Friends‘s photo.


It was a symbol of hope during darkest days following the September 11th attacks. The miracle cross is set to be displayed in the 9/11 Museum, but an atheist group is protesting! Do you support the cross?


Yes, I support the cross. I think the atheist must believe there is such a thing as God or they wouldn’t be so worried about all of the religious symbols and preachings. If they didn’t believe, why would they worry about other people seeing the religious symbols and hearing the preachings. They are afraid if they see and hear it too much that they might be converted is what I think.

All Christians need to ban together and stand up for what we believe.

Paula Deen Asked To Step Down


I will put this notice on my post from now on, every time that I copy a post from Facebook, so all of my readers will know that this is not my work, but that of someone else. This, like so many of my posts have, came from Facebook. This was from an article in Good Housekeeping. The URL is

Paula Deen asked to step down from network for pitching product during cooking show. 

news At 68 years old, Paula Deen is looking better than ever. Many have tried to discover her secret: is it botox, expensive face lifts, or just good lighting?  But her young looks came with a cost, possibly her job.  Recently Paula was caught pitching her favorite skin product on the air and The Food Network was not happy about it.
After poking around the story and keeping our ears open, we can reveal the exclusive scoop detailing what she’s staying silent about… or trying to, at least! Read on to find out.

Paula Deen stumbled upon a shocking skin secret – one that’s changing her life (and her face!) each and every day. Upon more research, we’ve discovered that it’s one clever women around the world – and many Hollywood actresses – have been secretly using too.

These products were an exclusive only celeb secret until Amy Davis, a 54 year-old mother of three from Los Angeles, California was featured on the Dr. Oz Show. Amy’s testimonial revolutionized the industry. A perfect example of how a little smart-thinking and ingenuity can help you avoid unnecessary health risks and save you thousands of dollars in doctors’ bills.
Like most women, Amy didn’t have the extra cash to try out every celebrity-endorsed anti-aging “miracle cream” out there, let alone splurge on expensive elective medical procedures, like plastic surgery or facelifts.

Amy’s Solution Featured On Dr. Oz

After a year of doing thorough research and speaking to other women about their own skincare habits, she learned of two products that were yielding real results and helping women take years off their skin: Bellalabs and La Creme.
While each of these products were proven to be effective individually, one night, Amy made an accidental discovery that would revolutionize the whole skincare industry: shecombined them.
Using the two products together, Amy’s results were noticeably better than what you’d find at medi-spas for $5,000 or more. This combination removed virtually 90% of all her wrinkles and problem areas. It tightened her face and neck, removing all signs of sagging, aging, and dehydrated skin. Amy was able to see these dramatic anti-aging results simply by using our exclusive links to complimentary bottles of both products, brought to you by Doctor Oz himself. (see bottom)
Not long after, her easy, 2-product trick went viral and was featured on The Dr. Oz Show!

Our Clinical Studies

Through our research, we discovered that the real secret to cell revival and skin rejuvenation are two key ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Vitamin C

These are both natural ingredients that work together to erase wrinkles and fine lines at the cellular level – below the surface of the skin – which is why they’re so effective.
Hyaluronic Acid works by binding to moisture. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent natural skin plumper. It also helps your skin repair and regenerate itself after suffering from dryness, environmental stresses, or irritation.
Vitamin C is the key to maintaining healthy, youthful skin. It’s a powerful antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage, which causes skin’s dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. It helps combat and even reverse time’s effect on your skin, because it produces collagen – a protein which makes skin appear plump and firm. Applying Vitamin C to the skin topically is up to 20 times more effective than taking it orally.

Celebrities around the world like Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, and Sandra Bullock have all admitted to using Bellalabs and La Creme to maintain their youthful glow.

Dr. Richard Peters, a prominent dermatologist based in Beverly Hills, revealed to us that using Bellalabs and La Creme together is the celebrity secret to youthful skin because both products contain the purest and most powerful forms of Hyaluronic Acid andVitamin C. Best of all the products are all-natural, perfectly safe for all skin types, and have no nasty side effects.

“What Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C do is get rid of all the old, dead layers of skin and help your skin generate fresh new ones. Our tests show that you can erase almost 20 to 30 years off your face in less than 30 days. But the key is to choose the natural crèmes and serums that contain the highest and purest quality ingredients, since they’re not all the same.” – Dr. Oz

Here is Amy’s Story & 14 Day Cell Revival Results:

Before and after picture of Amy Davis. The picture on the right was taken after only 14 days of using Bellalabs and La Creme.

“How do I do it?”

“The trick is to combine Bellalabs and La Creme. These two products both contain high concentrations of pure Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C in just the right concentrations. I also discovered that they contain all sorts of anti-oxidants, an ingredient called Dermaxyl (also known as facelift in a jar) and Ester-C (the active anti-aging compound in Vitamin C). The instructions were easy to follow but very specific: they’re important to follow precisely because it does make a visible difference. You apply just a light coat of Bellalabson your face and neck after washing and drying your face, and gently pat La Cremearound the eye area before bed time. I saw results almost overnight, but after 14 days, the results were literally shocking. I looked how I used to look 20 years ago!” – Amy


After the first day of using Bellalabs and La Creme together, I was surprised at how wonderful they both made my skin feel. It felt like every last pore on my face was being tightened and pulled by a gigantic vacuum cleaner.

I don’t know how else to describe it! I could feel a warm tingling sensation on my cheeks, around my eyes, and on my forehead. I looked in the mirror and saw that my face looked a bit rosy – the result of revitalizing blood rushing to the surface of my skin to renew my face. After both products were absorbed into my skin, my face looked firmer and had a beautiful glow to it.


After five days of using Bellalabs and La Creme, I was shocked at the drastic results.

The lines, dark spots, and wrinkles – without question – were visibly reduced in size right before my eyes!

I was astonished by the results, and literally felt 20 years younger again. It was like watching all my wrinkles and fine lines vanish right off!

DAY 14

After 14 days, not only had all my doubts and scepticism absolutely vanished – SO DID MY WRINKLES!

The lines on my forehead, the loose, sagging skin on my neck, my crows’ feet – even the age spots on my face had COMPLETELY disappeared. I’ve never felt or seen anything tighten my skin with this kind of force before, no matter how expensive the product!

After the 2 weeks, my skin not only stayed that way, it actually improved every day until it became as beautiful and radiant as it was 20 years ago. By this point, all my friends and family were shocked. They couldn’t believe the difference, and were convinced I was lying about not getting botox!

Will This Work For You?
There are plenty of skincare gimmicks out there, and most of them are ridiculously expensive. With so many options it’s only natural for you to be sceptical about the results, and so I challenge you to do what I did: try it for yourself! Conduct your own study and see the incredible results in your mirror at home. You won’t believe YOUR before and after!

I will put this notice on my post from now on, every time that I copy a post from Facebook, so all of my readers will know that this is not my work, but that of someone else. This, like so many of my posts have, came from Facebook.   This article is about Norfolk, Virginia. That’s where I’m from. Well, there and Portsmouth, Virginia.     This was printed in AltDaily, and was:  Written by Rebecca Evans on .

1. We’re not as career-oriented. We’re life oriented. People friend you on Facebook before connecting with you on LinkedIn, and when you meet new people, not every conversation begins with, “So, what do you do for a living?”
2. Mermaids are cooler than monuments. These multicolored pieces of art represent Norfolk, and celebrate all members of our community in a way that DC’s famous monuments and other tourist attractions can’t.

3. Cheap good food. You can get two meals worth of fried chicken sweet potato sausage gravy heart attack inducing goodness at Handsome Biscuit for less than SEVEN DOLLARS. That’s half of a DC brunch. Enough said.

4. Cheaper living. 1/3 of a standard DC rent covers almost half the mortgage on a house in Norfolk.

5. Local pride and loyalty. We’re proud to live in Norfolk and support local businesses. We don’t go to Starbucks – we go to Borjo, Fair Grounds, Cafe Stella, Alatte, Bean There, and MORE. DC’s shop local movement is lacking.

6. The hipsters are nicer here. Ghent is no U Street or Adams Morgan. There’s an air of goodwill and authenticity here even in the trendiest places .Perfect example: when the Grilled Cheese Bistro flooded and couldn’t have their opening day, The Parlor on Granby let them take over their kitchen for a night.

7. Less street harassment. Since moving to Norfolk, I’ve been harassed a total of one time. I’m convinced it’s because people are more respectful, and less entitled here. While living in Northern Virginia, I had at least 3 unpleasant “interactions” a day.

8. We care about the arts. Arts facilities like the Black Fox Lounge and Artisphere are closing in the DC metro area, while new spaces like The Push Comedy Theater and The Parlor on Granby, both recently opened in the Emerging Arts District in Norfolk, are thriving.

9. People know how to walk. Less Bluetooth users = more people who are aware of their surroundings. DC claims to be a “fast-paced” city, but many people don’t know how to navigate the grocery store, Metro, sidewalk, escalator, etc. with grace, and a basic awareness of people trying to get around them.

10. People stay. Norfolk attracts vibrant, genuine people committed to making our community a better place. DC is populated with politicians, transplants, tourists, recent college graduates, and people passing through on their way to somewhere better…. like Norfolk.

Put your hands up in the air for one of America’s most genuine cities!

We Are No Longer Friends


I will put this notice on my post from now on, every time that I copy a post from Facebook, so all of my readers will know that this is not my work, but that of someone else. This, like so many of my posts have, came from Facebook. This was on The Self Defense Company post on Facebook.


On December 20, 2014 NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were assassinated while sitting in their cruiser eating lunch. Authorities investigating the murders said the gunman did this in retaliation for the death of Eric Garner.

  • Jack Crissinger's photo.
  • David Hass's photo.
  • Ken Bass's photo.
  • Denise Hartong Kent's photo.
  • Rafetta Pepper Moore's photo.
    This is the full article by The Self Defense Company. All of what has happened, starting with the Ferguson incident and up until now is just beyond belief. Like the picture above states “If you point a gun at the police and get shot you are not a victim of anything.” In other words, you got what was coming to you. It is beyond my comprehension how far out of hand this has gotten. If our president wasn’t black, the armed forces would have already been called in to regain Law And Order. I honestly believe the president wants as many white people to be killed as is possible and for any reason and/or no reason at all. Look at the white people that have just been walking down the street or riding peacefully in their cars and been attacked and killed for no reason since all of this Ferguson s_ _ t started. If the shoe had been on the other foot and a black policeman had have killed a white person, then nothing would have been done or even said about it. If anything did get said it probably would have been that the white person must have deserved what they got. Enough is enough. All of the violence needs to stop NOW!!!!! Our policemen and women  are to be respected, admired and thanked for all that they do. They are not supposed to be assassinated while eating their lunch in their cruiser. To any law enforcement officer that might read this post, I am behind you 100%. I see nothing wrong with what you did. If it had have been me that was the officer, I would have done the same thing. Quite frankly, I don’t know of anyone, police officer or not, that would not have done the same thing.

    On December 20, 2014 NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were assassinated while sitting in their cruiser eating lunch. Authorities investigating the murders said the gunman did this in retaliation for the death of Eric Garner.

    The gunman wrote on his Instagram account:
    “I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let’s take 2 of theirs,” just hours before the killings. (The post received 200 likes).

    I’ve waited a week for signs of support from athletes, political figures and of course, “friends” on Facebook.

    Let’s just say your response has been underwhelming; other than the requisite “our thoughts and prayers go out to the officer’s friends and families” from politicians; NOTHING HAS BEEN SAID (except for a handful to be named later).

    Where are your posts, where are your tweets, where are the NYPD t-shirts and hats?

    So before I go into this New Year, it’s time to clean house. I want those of you who are my “friends” to know EXACTLY why I’m “un-friending” you.

    You can also do me the service by unfriending me…I don’t care…don’t go away mad, just go away.

    The reason for the mass unfriending is simple – you are part of the problem.

    By posting negative NYPD and law enforcement propaganda you helped create an environment of approval that made it “OK” for this deranged killer to execute these two officers.

    When he declared he was going to kill cops he received 200 likes. He was looking for acceptance and he got it. But it’s not just those likes; every protester, every politician, every article and every post you made helped him come to the conclusion that he should kill some cops.

    But your mindless social tweets are only part of this perfect storm of social decay and violence against law and order.

    You’ve elected politicians who approve the “anti-police” rhetoric. They turned over their cities to demonstrators that riot and loot. Regardless of the whether the demonstrations erupted in violence or remained peaceful, that all had one common message –
    “The police are bad, racists who abuse their power.”

    You support athletes who in their infinite ignorance, wear t-shirts and put their hands up in support of criminals who were not just resisting arrest, but were in the process of committing crimes when they were arrested!

    Hey Lebron, where’s your NYPD shirt?

    You support, tweet, post and like media who uses terms like “unarmed man” and “victim” instead of suspect. They describe use of force and resisting arrest as “illegal choke hold” and “murder”. They call suspects “teenagers” and “diabetic” not 6’4, 300 pound convicted criminal and of course when you hear ”black subject” and “white cop” it’s all over.

    You’re predictable and boring.

    You say that the police “could have done something different” without understanding and respecting the very nature of violence where anything can happen. There isn’t any control; there are only degrees of risk and success. Anytime you choose to resist or use force bad things can happen that result in injury or death.

    You’re quick to condemn the very people who have sworn their lives to protect your community.

    Here’s a novel idea…Why don’t you give the cops, the people who have been trained, vetted and sworn to uphold the law the benefit of the doubt?!?!

    You won’t because at the end of the day it’s about power and control.

    You don’t want anyone telling you what to do. You don’t like the idea that someone can inconvenience you and force you to explain your actions.

    You’re like a child who’s parents have told you NO. You plead your case and if that doesn’t work you stomp your feet and throw a fit.

    You live under the illusion that you have “rights” and you think they empower you to do and say whatever you want. Rights that empower you to ignore the law and other authority.

    Somewhere along the line you have come to the conclusion that if you don’t want to comply with a police order you don’t have to, as long as you believe or appear to be innocent.

    Are you f&cking kidding me?!?!?

    Your rights…if you can find a Japanese-American citizen who was in America in 1941 ask them about YOUR RIGHTS and the constitution.

    Like all societies we have laws. If you’re suspected of violating these laws you will be placed under arrest and taken before the court to plead your case. It’s not the job of the cop to pass judgment. His or her discretion only goes so far. It’s your responsibility as a citizen to play your part in the system: comply with the order and have your day in court.

    It’s not fun, its not always fair, it tedious and sometimes very expensive, but it’s the society in which we live.

    But no, you have created a culture without any accountability.

    You’re not successful because your boss doesn’t like you.

    You fail because you have a bad teacher.

    You lost because the ref screwed you.

    Let me tell you something you need to get a grip on: the single common denominator in all of your failures and disappointments is YOU.

    This week if we’re no longer “friends”, you will know why.

    Before I go, a big shout out to athletes and organizations that have shown support to the NYPD:

    Jets’ Players Nick Mangold and Jeff Cumberland

    Tom Coughlin and the NY Football Giants

    Kyle Flood and the Rutgers Football Team

    That list is WAY TOO SHORT.

    Train honestly,

Little Girl Is The Victim Of Terrible Child Abuse


I will put this notice on my post from now on, every time that I copy a post from Facebook, so all of my readers will know that this is not my work, but that of someone else. This, like so many of my posts have, came from Facebook.  This post came from San Francisco Globe.


Little Girl Is The Victim Of Terrible Child Abuse
December 6, 2014
Little Girl Is The Victim Of Terrible Child Abuse


Addison Weast was only 16 months old when she was rushed to a hospital with severe injuries. The person who was supposed to be taking care of her, 24-year-old Cody Geddings, said that Addison had fallen from her bed and suffered injuries. However, hospital staff knew that the injuries Addison suffered from were caused by something much worse, so they called the police. Tragically, doctors were unable to save Addison’s life.Eventually, Geddings was charged with and convicted of killing Addison. During their investigation, police discovered that Geddings had an extremely violent history; he was charged with 2nd degree murder and is currently incarcerated. Though he was Addison’s step-father at the time of the incident, he and her mother have since gotten a divorce.

Every 10 seconds an act of child abuse is reported in the United States, and the worst thing parents can do is ignore the problem when they see it happening. Don’t let Addison’s life have been taken in vain – report child abuse to keep this from happening again.
Watch the video below to see photos and hear the points of view of Addison’s family. If her story touched you, please pass this on so that others can be made aware of the devastating nature of child abuse.
