That defines me. I march to the beat of a different drum. Also It is a popular Song by Linda Ronstadt "Different Drum".

Absolutely these outward signs are clear indicators of heart related problems. It is interesting that most have never heard of Frank's signs.

Topic: Health Care Reform
Posted: Monday, April 2, 2018 1:26:06 AM
I am interested in gauging the pulse of America regarding Healthcare Reform. It seems that health insurance companies not only hold the patients hostage but they also mug the doctors along the way. One doctor told me that he needed 4 full time employees just to manage the insurance company paperwork mess. If you're like me, the Statement Of Benefit paperwork is overwhelming. America's forprofit healthcare providers are out of control. My observation is that America needs "WholePerson care," not simply healthcare.

What I mean by that is -- instead of having a policy for optical, medical, dental, mental health, etc. American's should be able to purchase "WholePerson Care." Of course they must pay for this service as it is not free but... The Insurances companies should move to a not-for-profit model that recognizes their only responsibility is to be an aggregator of risk among the members. Of course the government Medicare program should help provide the standard payment schedule as the basis for physician pricing on a Medical procedure. And, our government should be encouraged to manage the risk in the early years of the healthcare notforprofit transition especially for managing preexisting conditions. However, over time, the medical WholePerson carriers would clearly see what the aggregated risk would be for each medical condition and then price the policy accordingly. I think in the end we will get control of the skyrocketing medical cost that America is grappling.

Topic: DACA youth Stay or Go?
Posted: Monday, April 2, 2018 12:54:26 AM
I am interested in gauging the pulse of America regarding DACA youth. First respond with whether you believe these youth should be sent back or if they should be granted a path to citizenship? Then if applicable discuss what changes are needed to the US immigration policy to facilitate this path? If you are against these youth being granted a path, discuss your thoughts as to why?

I am of the opinion that these youth should be offered two options, 1) if they want to be placed on a path to citizenship, then they should complete the application, fingerprinting, background check and then they shall be required to depart the US back to where they were born; they would be guaranteed to be placed on a fast path to return. The youth would complete their checks before deporting, and then their application with the US Embassy would expeditiously move them to return back to the USA usually within 7 days.

Or option two, accept on the spot legal resident status but forfeited the ability to ever become a citizen. In essence a permanent green card.

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!



DACA--Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an administrative relief policy from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation.

US Legal Resident-- United States lawful permanent residency, informally known as green card, is the immigration status of a person authorized to live and work in the United States of America permanently.

US Citizenship path--Be a green card holder of at least 5 years, and you must
Be 18 or older at the time of filing.
Be a green card holder for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.

Topic: Kwashiorkor
Posted: Saturday, March 31, 2018 12:41:11 AM
I am of the opinion that Kwashiorkor is the manifestation of anaerobic bacteria (which normally does not live in the healthy human's small intestine). This bacteria competes directly with the host for nutrients. This competition for nutrients, minerals and nourishment causes the host to become severely malnourished, slightly feverish, mineral deficient, edema bloated over time, abdominal pain, and with delirium in the later stage, and in the end death will occur. The cure is always antibiotics given orally.

The digestive system is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to the colon. Inside this tube is a lining called the mucosa. In the mouth, stomach, and small intestine, the mucosa contains tiny glands that produce juices to help digest food and in the small intestine, where all nutrients are absorbed, are villi which help the body absorb nutrients directly into the bloodstream and digest the food. Two solid organs, the liver and the pancreas, produce digestive juices that reach the intestine through small tubes. In addition, parts of other organ systems (for instance, nerves and blood) play a major role in the digestive system.

When we eat such things as grains, mike, eggs, bread, meat, and vegetables, they are not in a form that the body can use as nourishment. Our food and drink must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before they can be absorbed into the blood stream and carried to cells throughout the body. Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so that the small intestine can absorb the nutrients into the blood so the body can use it to build and nourish cells and to provide energy. However, when bacteria lives in the small intestines, which normally little is found in a healthy human, the bacteria competes directly with the host for the food and nutrition. If the bacteria is sufficient enough to reproduce in sufficient quantity, the bacteria can consume all of the nutrients. This results in the patient starving even though it has plenty of food intake. The cause is bacteriological; however, the symptoms are Kwashiorkor.

Digestion involves the mixing of food, its movement through the digestive tract (motility), and the chemical breakdown of the large molecules of food into smaller molecules. Digestion begins in the mouth, when we chew and swallow, and is completed in the small intestine. The chemical process varies somewhat for different kinds of food. Many children—usually under the age of 5—in overpopulated parts of the world suffer from kwashiorkor, severe malnutrition because they have anaerobic bacteria and digestive tract motility problems that dont allow the body to get rid of the bacd bacteria. Kwashiorkor symptoms are Wrongly believed to be caused by protein deficiency but really caused by anaerobic bacteria that was ingested or migrated from the colon and now populating with overgrowth in the small intestines. Rightfully so, Kwashiorkor is now thought by some to be relate to bacterial contamination of grain ingested by newly weaned children. To confirm that bacteria is at the root cause, a simple hydrogen/methane breath test should be conducted and if the level of H2 gas is above 15ppm, the patient should be started on an oral antibiotic plan immediately along with an intravenously supplied antibiotic. Please note that the oral antibiotic is very necessary as the bacteria is living in the small intestine and eating its way though the walls and migrating into the blood stream. It is essential then that one attack the bacteria from within the stomach and via the blood stream. Usually antibiotics as simple as penicillin or amoxicillin or even tetracycline can be used as an oral antibiotic. I hope this helps.

Fatal Familial Insomnia

Fatal familial insomnia is a rare genetic disease that interferes with sleep and eventually leads to death. The disease is the result of mutations in a certain protein, which cause plaques to build up in the thalamus, the brain region responsible for sleep regulation. Patients initially suffer from insomnia and progressively develop more serious problems—including hallucinations, rapid weight loss, and dementia—before dying. In how many families has the gene that causes the disease been found? More...


These are purely symptoms of a deeper aliment that manifest themselves as insomnia. The real cause is much deeper and related to bacteria in the gut and bloodstream. These individuals lose weight, suffer from malnutrition, inbalances in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and etc. This is caused because the bacteria in the gut compete with the host for nutrients and minerals. The person cannot eat enough to sustain their body because the bacteria quick consumes the nutrient load and leaves nothing for the host. When no host (eating) nutrient loading occurs, the bacteria migrate through the villi and into the bloodstream. Delirium occurs and death follows.

Pronounce the T and you will be correct. It's like San Antonio, you must pronounce the T.

Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870)


Man created God in his likeness in order to answer the questions which he, as of yet, cannot. Therefor God exists. God provides us a compass of perfection to guide us through life, to organize those around us and to provide a rolemodel of Perfection for which we can never achieve, but for which we must always strive. It is not perfection that mankind desires, but progress toward perfection and hope in everlasting life as is defined by our creation of God. So does God exist, Yes, is God Useful for mankind, Yes, is prayer useful, Yes if only to clarify in our mind the issue(s) we are facing so that we can describe it, solve it, and/or come to grips with it...

Grieving is healing. No matter how tough one is, only time can heal.
