The following was passed along and reach us here at the Editorial Board of Conservatively Speaking.  The following has not been verified, however we’ve decided to share that, that has been shared with us given the overall importance of what is happening and for all that we fear is still to come.

Subject:   Seniors BEWARE –

“Seniors”

Forget about getting to age 75, this exact thing happened to me this morning at
Danbury hospital here in Ct.    I was scheduled for a cardio-lite stress test.  This is a tread mill stress test where during the process they inject nuclear dye into your blood stream and then put you in a CAT scan or something similar and take a picture of your heart.  If all is good the heart shows up red, if there are blocked arteries anywhere that portion of the heart shows up pink.  I have had three of these
tests in the past twelve years due to blocked arteries discovered in 2000.   They use the test to determine if I need a roto router or a bypass operation.
So I arrive at the hospital at 8 am this morning and I am in the process of checking in at Cardiology and
the lady says that my appointment has been canceled.  She makes a call and speaks with someone and hands me the phone.  It is a nurse in cardiology who says that my medical coverage denied the procedure.  I said it was routine, part of my heart maintenance
process and ordered by my PCP and with approval from my Cardiologist who is the head of Danbury Cardiology which is right where I was standing.  She goes, “yes but we were denied our request”.  So I say, I have Medicare so what is my backup insurance doing
denying anything.  Then the bombshell, she says it was the Medicare board that denied the procedure.

At that point, I turn to everyone behind me, and it was a long line, and I say to them “well you won’t have to wait too long today because my stress test procedure was just canceled by a Medicare Death Panel.  I am only 67 so can you imagine what is going to happen when we really get old”.    The entire waiting room and everyone there from patients to staff just went dead silent.  So I turn to the front desk and tell them,  ” I guess I will have to write a letter to the editor of the Danbury News Times and call my Senators and Congressman and let them know the Death Panels have already convened”.    Then I walked out.
By the time I got home the message machine was blinking.  My PCP had already called and so did the hospital and guess what,  Medicare decided to approve my stress test procedure and if I could get back down to the hospital they would fit me in right now for this 3 hour procedure.  I told them I couldn’t make it, that I was going fishing because I didn’t know how many more fishing trips I could get in before I went into cardiac arrest but not to worry about me costing the government any money because I am a 30% disabled Army veteran, due to Agent Orange poisoning which is what caused this heart problem to begin with, and I qualify to be buried for free in a plain pine wrapper in the cheap graves section at any National Cemetery. I certainly don’t want to cost our government any money so maybe we just won’t do this procedure anymore and we can use the money to redistribute it to all of the illegal’s to keep them alive so they can mow the lawns at the National Cemeteries.

So this Death Panel crap has started.  If we don’t vote this guy and his criminal cronies out of office this November then we will all die younger than we should as broke paupers as the country goes bankrupt.  Feel free to distribute my note to anyone and make it a mission to not only make your vote count but on behalf of all of us please make an effort to change the thinking of anyone remotely willingly to get intellectually engaged in this critical time in our country’s history.

WELL ISN’T THIS SOME SPECIAL NEWS GRANDMA AND PAPA!!!
I had one of the most troubling, most disturbing conversations ever with Dr. Suzanne Allen, head of emergency
services at the Johnson City Medical Center in Tennessee . We were discussing the “future” and I asked her had she seen any effects of Obama Care in her work?

“Oh, yes. We are seeing cutbacks throughout the services we provide. For example, we are now having to deal with patients who would normally receive dialysis can no longer be accepted. In the past, there was always automatic approval under Medicare for anyone
who needed dialysis — not anymore.” So, what will be their outcome? “They will die soon without dialysis,” she stated.

What about other services? She indicated as of 2013 (after the election), no one over 75 will be given major medical procedures unless approved by locally administered Ethics Panels. These Panels will determine whether a patient receives medical treatment or
not. While details on specific operating procedures and schedules, Dr. Allen points out that most life-threatening emergencies do not occur during normal hospital business hours, and if there are emergencies that depend to be resolve within minutes or just
few hours, the likely hood of getting these Panels approval in time to save a life are going to be very challenging and difficult, if not impossible she said.

This applies to major operations such as receiving stents, bypass surgery, kidney operations, or treating for an aneurysm that would be normally covered under Medicare today. In other words, if you needed a life-saving operation, Medicare will not provide coverage
anymore after 2013 if you are 75 or over. When in 2013? “We haven’t been given a specific date — could be in January or July….but it’s after the election.”

This is shocking to any of us who will be 75 this year. Her advice — get healthy and stay healthy. We do not know the specifics of the actual implementation of the full Obama Care policies and procedures —  “they haven’t filtered down to the local level yet.

But we are already seeing severe cuts in what we provide to the elderly — we refused dialysis to an individual who was 78 just the other day….we refused to give stents to a gentleman who was in his late 80s.” Every day, she said, we are seeing these cutbacks aimed at reducing care across the board for anyone who is over 75.

We can only hope that Obama Care will be overturned by the Supreme Court — otherwise, this is a death sentence to those who are over 75….perhaps you should pass this on to your friends who are thinking of voting for Obama this year.

Regardless if you have private health care coverage now (I have Aetna Medicare Part B) — it will no longer apply after 2013 if the Ethics Panels disapprove of a procedure that may save your life.
Scary, scary, scary. Think about this? You? Your parents? Your loved ones?

Didn’t know about it? Of course, not. As Nancy Pelosi said….”well, if you want to know what’s in the bill, you’ll have to read it…..” After it was passed.

This is a graphic reminder of the need to stay healthy. Get your plot now at
Forest Lawn….while they last. Is this a death sentence to those of us who will reach 75?…..Yes!

Please do pass this along to those in your address book.

Just answer the question Ms Warren…

Dear Elizabeth Warren,
Are you an Indian? If you are, than I’m a tree?
And Gov. Deval, you don’t speak for me, when I ask a politician a question I expect an answer, so you won’t answer the question made by Fox 25 news reporter, than I will ask, Are you an Indian? Did you lie? Why won’t you clear this up?
Pretending to be an Indian is an insult to all respectable, true, original people of these lands we call the United States!!

What is the average interest rate at Pawn shops?

 
 
 

Poll Question: Have you ever pawned a precious family item for short term cash… and get it out?

 
 
 

Are Pawn shops signs of bad times? No one for the 1%!

There’s a new lender in town for wealthy individuals in need of quick cash. Borro.com, founded in the U.K. in 2009, is now operating in the U.S., making loans secured by luxury personal assets such as fine wines, art, diamond jewels and antique cars.

Here’s how it works: A wealthy individual in need of cash applies for a loan at borro.com or through a financial advisor, offering his or her precious asset as collateral. Borro lends 50% to 70% of the collateral’s value —   loans usually don’t last more than a few months. and are often small business owners who “have a deal they can do and need liquidity to do that,”  . Borrow’s clients have a net worth between $1 million and $10 million.

Today’s Trivia Question: With what product did the term “brand name” originate?

 
 
 

Today’s Poll Question: Would you give your facebook/social media password if asked during an interview?

 
 
 

Give up your passwords if you want this job:

It’s a practice that’s questionable at best, but for now, it’s not illegal.

House Republicans have rejected a bill that would have banned prospective employers from asking for applicants’ Facebook passwords, deeming the bill unnecessary.

Facebook has reported an alarming increase of employers seeking access to private accounts.

The social media giant has warned users never to share passwords or to let others access accounts, saying it’s a violation of their statement of rights and responsibilities.
