Segment 1: Boy Scouts goes Bananas!
Quote: “For 105 years, the relationship between the Boy Scouts and the Mormon Church has been important to both groups. Any boy who is part of a Mormon congregation automatically becomes part of the Boy Scouts. The Mormon Church has been the largest participant of the Boy Scouts in the United States, making up nearly 20 percent of all of the Boy Scouts’ 2.3 million youth members.?
Scouts and Leaders get Condoms. Mandatory policy for staff and leaders must follow.
I love this quote from the Florida Family Council:
“In light of the mandatory condom policy, it is not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall. With the addition of condoms and alcohol, the World Jamboree is starting to sound more like a 1960s Woodstock festival rather than a campout that parents would want to send their children to.
Matt Walsh made a great point about the progressives when it comes to blood in the water:
“The Boy Scouts thought it could satiate leftists by revoking its prohibition on gay scouts. All it did was whet their appetites. It showed weakness; it dripped a little blood in the water, and the feeding frenzy began. The Left is not interested in making minor reforms and changes to things. Rather, it wants to completely obliterate every traditional American institution and rebuild them in its own deformed image. If you show any susceptibility, you will not be left alone until you have been completely torn down and annihilated.
Our godless, evil culture demands conformity above all else. It does not know what it wants or where it is going, but it insists that you join it, nevertheless, in its confusion. The only safe choice is to refuse completely, entirely, and with prejudice.”
End Segment: with this great summary by Girls Scouts about the Boy Scouts organization:
“The Boy Scouts’ house is on fire. Instead of addressing systemic issues of continuing sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming, BSA’s senior management wants to add an accelerant to the house fire by recruiting girls.”
Segment 2: Are MS-13 and other violent evil raping misogynistic gangs animals?
Trump calls members of MS 13: animals
Nancy Pelosi gets religious in response:
“We believe — some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service — that we are all God’s children, there is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and that we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person and as we recognize our responsibilities with that spark of divinity within us,” she said.
“And so, when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?” she said. It is this supposed lack of recognition for the divine spark, she went on to suggest, that motivates his administration’s “inhumane” policies.
Actually, a gang member goes by the nickname of Animal lol!
They are evil!
And Americans side with Trump at 56%. 44 says comments unfair, and 52% were fine with dehumanizing members of MS-13.
Segment 3: The Opioid War!
Start with talking about how hard the last 2 months have been for me.
Talk about meeting with my primary doctor, then being forced to go to the pain specialist.
Quote a letter to a friend of mine:
I’m sorry to sound so down in the dumps. Having such a negative appointment with the pain specialist is very disheartening. I probably should have had more patience with him, and acted more Christlike.
I really don’t know what to say or tell you.
I am not l suicidal, so please don’t worry about that.
For future reference here is what happened at the pain doctor appointment.
I go on, nurses take my vitals and go through my medication list.
The doctor eventually comes in, he says that I’m scheduled for abdomen shots and that according to the G.I Doctor I saw on Friday:
I don’t currently have pancreatitis. (I’m kindly assuming he meant that no tests proved my amalyse enzyme levels were elevated)
He said that this is exactly what the doctor wrote him.
He wanted to know the basic where does it hurt. And asked me what usually worked to get the pain away.
I told him that Oxycontin was the most effective and that I did have a butrans pain patch in the past, but couldn’t afford it after I lost my insurance last year.
He asked if I was taking Gabapentin and Cymbalta (in some studies it shows that high levels of these may reduce chronic pain).
I said I was.
He said the abdomen shot wouldn’t be appropriate since it was deep on the inside. And that pain would be dealt with by GI.
He said he would set me up on a CORE exercise schedule.
I told him that I am fine with not taking opiates as long as he can find something else that works.
He told me that he would keep me on Gabapentin and Cymbalta.
I told him that was all very well and good; except they didn’t do much to treat the pain.
He told me that the oxycodine, the butrans, and the fentanyl (never took it or been on it) are going out the door.
“Haven’t you seen the news”
It was at this point that I blew it, and lost my cool.
I told him that to be perfectly honest I didn’t care if junkies were dying from taking illegal drugs.
What would he do to help me get out of pain. That every other freaking doctor dumps me like a hot rock onto you.
He tried telling me to cool down, and I told him that I’m leaving as it is obvious that you couldn’t care less what happens to me and all those other patients like me who are suffering.
I know I should of been Christ Like, and kept my mouth shut and and just took the humiliation. Just let one more medical professional accuse of me of being a lazy degenerate junkie.
My Mom is right, this is the one with all the power and control over any treatment. And if I try to see a different doctor, I can be arrested for drug seeking behavior.
This is wrong and unjust. And there is nothing I can do about it.
