This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's Stupidity

Number 10
Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00
per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

Number 9
Only in America …could people claim that the government still discriminates
against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney
General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the
population is black 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans -
3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

Number 8
Only in America…could they have had the two people most responsible
for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and
Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be
tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

Number 7
Only in America…can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and
have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the
backlash.

Number 6
Only in America…would they make people who want to legally become American
citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of
dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the
country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens (probably
should be number one).

Number 5
Only in America....could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking
by the country's Constitution be thought of as EXTREMIST’S.

Number 4
Only in America…could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy
alcohol, but not to vote.

Number 3
Only in America...could people demand the government investigate whether oil
companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the
return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company(Marathon Oil) is less than
half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

Number 2
Only in America... could you collect more tax dollars from the people than any
nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per
year - for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't
have nearly enough money.

And Number 1
Only in America...could the rich people- who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused
of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at
all.

Just thought of something. this relates to my first fracture on the 12th. which did the most damage. i was prescribed trazodone ( which is an old anti depressant now commonly prescribed for insomnia.. which it was in my case.) i had taken my dose which was 150mg. after a half hour i stood to turn on ceiling fan. and BAAM  i black out. hit the floor fracturing distal fib on right leg. was splinted  12 hours later. ( covered in doc thread. ) later on after being casted, it happened again but i caught myself. landing on knees. am wondering, do i look into this? do i retain counsel regarding this? ive ceased using it because if i damage joints any further, well we know where i stand now. bones arent healing. idk. kinda pissed tbh.

Im kinda PISSED at methodist med. center here in Oak Ridge. sure they detected my broken ankle on top of a previous one. BUT 1 THEY DID NOTHING FOR PAIN my god im feeling it royally. and 2 as far as the fibreglass splint.  there wasnt one put on TOP of the foot. my foot wiggles when i sleep. its not secured. now with an unstable fracture on left, ive got ti improvise. (going to take aircast and return it to service on LEFT side where it was originally. ( it comes with a top brace) will then see if splint will fit on right foot ( in 2 pieces side brace can flip around to fit on right. idk. hell i unloaded on the poor RN. i vented publicly. she was surprised they did nothing beyond the splint. ( pain wise) she went back and raged on them lol. i was there waiting on ride. when she came back out. meh splint is temp. ill get casted prolly monday perhaps surgery idk. i never raged at this hosp. most of the time they treated me well. 2nd time i felt wronged i unloaded. ( 1st time was original incident on same foot lol :(  ) tbh come think of it, its same PA tha treated this one too. uh oh. here comes a rage monday after ortho. ( well no not a rage but a stern vote of displeasure to staff supervisor.)
More rants to come im sure lol.

Eh Yama ... I'm on work Comp at moment with light duties till they figure out and scan my left knee and why it's sounding like rice bubbles and feeling like a hot ice cube...

But the medico thing.... I was reminded today while at the doc getting the MRI scan request, sports physician referral and physio recommendation.... (And not hacking on doctors overall... Much needed people in everyone's lives!) ...

The doc gave me updated med cert for suitable duties, referral and said "ok that's it see you next time" ..... I was 'whoa up bro! MRI? , and can I get physio for evaluation for a knee wrap/support so it's not getting jolted as much?' ... He looked blank for a few seconds and then "yes of course! , tired and missed lunch, sorry!" .. Gave me all the papers I needed and out I went...

The other doc I had for when I wrecked my wrist was also vague to start with when treating symptoms and providing info.....

Once scans and info came back then it was a lot easier to progress....

But back to my thought before I tangent off... Always make sure you ask and remind them about stuff that concerns you!!!! If you/I/anyone can see something that could go awry .. Like a half wrapped foot being able to move.... Just remind them... 'Hey is that going to work when I lay down? I don't stand upright 24/7 eh?' ... They may have this extra knowledge , they get forgetful/fatigued/preoccupied like every other person on the planet too though! ....

They may say why they want it that way and leave it that way for xyz reasons... But at least it's with a reason.... They may look and go  :icon_idea: ... Oh yeah!! Wups!

I always push the point on possibilities and potential repercussions on treatment/medication .. Just to be sure that there will be less conflict later..

Oh yeah ... My light duties away from garbage truck... Go with cleaning crew in van, they vacuum stairwells and such in public access areas of government/city housing units... I wander about the ground floor perimeter with a cobweb broom! ... Windows, gutters, garage doors are web free now!! Lol ... For this I get paid very similar money to actually driving the garbage trucks!  :D :D :D

left leg with recent fib fracture, the bone slid down over itself by a few MM. ERR FORWARD AND DOWN. raging like hell today. i tried the lace up brace. with the moonboot on top. my GOD that hurt. taking the boot off for now. still got 2 weeks to kill before next ortho visit. idk if i can handle 2 weeks of that lol. the ascii pic of the fib looks like
 I
 \
will post  xray when i can get to a comp. the soft tissue injury plus the swelling has yet to decrease. going on 2 weeks now. :S going to the ER is as worthless as t*ts on a bull. theyll tell me to go see my ortho. who cant do anything until swelling subsides. who then more than likely will plate it. :S. so really unless it either turns purple gets cold or breaks thru skin, not much to be done. damn im impatient lol. unless i rage or go loopy at er ppl. but naah . i want to sneak into local holiday inn and jump into their hottub.

I fascinates me that America twice voted for a hard-core socialist (Obama) and the govt can not help you in any way.  :icon_rolleyes:

Did I ever mention I hate the govt.?
Put the EPA at the top of my hate list.
The IRS and the FCC tie for second place on my sh!t-list.
Just saying.

This "is" the Rant Thread, right?
May I then have permission to complain like a cranky old hen?

Went for an MRI on neck & head for occasional migraines a few years ago...

On my follow-up visit, the doctor said; "Your head is fine but your neck is a mess! You never told me about your automobile accident. Or was it from playing football in school?"
I told him I was never in an accident, nor did I play much sports as a young man.

I told him "Work" is the culprit!
Doing tree work, doing engine swaps in cars, doing 4x4 recoveries out in the swamps all night, 30+ years repairing railroad bridges, replacing HVAC units at my house, doing construction, etc, etc...

(excuse me friends, I'm on a rant here)  :whisper:

Yeah Doc, it's work, Working till it fuhken hurts.
That's how you grind down your joints & bones, and that's why you grow old.
Please, gimmy a break... Playing ball in school :icon_rolleyes:  :cookoo:  :2guns:

Yama, you should show my doctor your legs/ankles.
He'd see the damage and probably say; "you must play a mean game of golf to do that much damage".

Well, I thought it was kinda funny.  :dunno_black:
