Barack Obama and Alvin . . . One is Definitely Better Than the Other

Barack Obama's political machine is sweeping the nation. People are swept away by his smile and charm, enamored with the idea of voting for a black man and enchanted by the fact that he is so young. That's all great and wonderful, but has anyone noticed he's a socialist knocking on the door of communism? Is anyone, anyone at all, taking a look at his record, his history, his belief systems . . . is anyone looking beyond the smile and into the eyes of this man who should NEVER be President of the United States of America. I don't care what Oprah says, or the Kennedy's either for that matter. Big surprise there, I know.

Mitt Romney dropped out of the race and true conservatives mourned across the nation. Not the Mormon Haters, they were probably doing happy dances around their little Mormon voodoo dolls. But everyone else who truly loves this nation and wanted with everything in them to elect a man who would truly resurrect the economy, support our military as they truly needed and lead the War on Terror in an efficient and courageous manner, mourned. But America turned their back on competence, integrity and courage and chose a shadow of a former American hero, a woman bent on converting the people of this nation to a dependent people incapable of making decisions for themselves and a man who has made a mockery of the Constitution of the United States of America. with the exact same goals as Hillary Clinton.

People! I beg of you, those flocking to Obama because of surface reasons look at what you're doing and vote responsibly. Do I think John McCain is the answer to our problems? No. I think he'll destroy this country, but he won't do it as quickly and completely as the other two. He will keep the War on Terror off American soil while the other two (Clinton and Obama) will bring it home to America when they turn tail and run from our enemies, forcing our honorable and brave military to retreat. So yes, John McCain is the lesser of three evils. Which him as president there might still be some America left to salvage when Mitt Romney takes office in 2012. 1,338 days (give or take a week or two) until hope will burst into full flame, hopefully not completely extinguished by the next four years.

There is no question when I cast my vote in November I will cry as I vote for McCain. For I believe I will be voting for the destruction of the America I have come to know and love, the America my ancestors and current family members fought and died to preserve. There is no question that McCain is a liar and a deceiver, but the other two are even worse.

Over the next few weeks I will give an indepth analysis of John McCain as the Republican Nominee. I've already done one on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, whichever one takes the nomination I will refine and research more on. In the meantime folks, sit down, keeps your arms and legs in the ride at all times and put your head down. We're in for a hell of a ride.

Personal Note: Alvin is still in the hospital. On Friday afternoon he spiked a temperature of 103 and became delirious and weak. I called his doctor and then raced him to the ER. 5 1/2 hours in the ER did not stabilize him and he was transferred to ICU. His vitals dropped, finally bottoming out at a heart rate of 36 (80 to 100 is a resting heartrate.) They started him on vancomiacine and then promaxin on Sunday.

By Sunday morning, 4:00 a.m., Alvin took a turn for the better and started to improve. By Sunday, late afternoon, he was transferred out of ICU to a regular hospital room . . . well, as regular as a kidney failure patient can get.

This morning they created a new fistula and put a perma cath in his chest. Dialysis will be done through the perma cath for the next two to three months while the fistula fully develops or he gets a transplant, whichever happens first.

As to the kidney transplant, we had great hopes with one donor but her husband forbad her to continue the process, so we're back to square one. We do have three or four people who are O+ or O- who are being tested to see if they are match. But it has set us back quite a bit. We were shaken, emotionally, but Mitt Romney dropping out and this hospital stay has put things back in perspective. We just do what we can and leave the rest to the Lord. Not as easy to do as it sounds, but there you have it.

Alvin is still in the hospital and it is unknown when he will be released. They have been unable to determine the source of the infection or identify the infection. With everything going on they are unwilling to release him at this time. He mad, frustrated and ready to go AMA and leave, except I won't let him. Yeah, we're really happy right now. Not. But he's alive, which was a state in question over the weekend. So he's holding his own and feeling better every day. Whew!
