Who Is Behind Quashing the Birth Certificate Issue?
Canada Free Press ^ | August 25, 2009 | By Joan Swirsky

Posted on Friday, October 30, 2009 9:07:00 AM by MelSmith

In an explosive interview by Dr. Laurie Roth on her syndicated West Coast radio show on August 7th, Douglas Hagmann—a respected journalist, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network and longtime private investigator, and Judi McLeod, a prolific journalist and the managing editor of Canada Free Press—the reason for the media blackout about the birth-certificate issue was nothing less than organized Mafia-like dire threats to members of the media issued not only from the heads of major TV and radio stations but also from Federal Communication Commission officials!

Devvy’s Email Alerts: Judge Carter dismisses Orly’s case & my comments…

October 29, 2009 Leave a comment
Judge Carter dismissed Barnett v Obama today. This is one of Dr. Orly Taitz’ cases out in California.

 

While I haven’t read all of Judge Carter’s ruling yet, WND has provided some of the text:

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=114411

As regular readers of my columns know, I believe the only way to remove Obama (a usurper) is through the Quo Warranto as I wrote in my last column:

http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd476.htm

Please allow me to make a few comments about Carter’s ruling this morning:

“The court is troubled by the idea that a third party candidate would not have standing to challenge a major party candidate’s qualifications, while the opposing major party candidate may be able to establish standing because he or she has a better chance of winning the election,” he said.

“He warned, “Defendants’ argument encourages the marginalization of the voice of a third party in what is a dominantly two-party political system and would require the court to pass judgment that plaintiffs are such unlikely candidates that who they are running against would not make a difference.

“This argument also ignores the tremendous effect that a third-party candidate can have on the presidential election. In 2000, many political commentators opined that should Green Party candidate Ralph Nader not have run for presidential office and received less than three percent of the popular vote, Al Gore would have won the election instead of President George W. Bush. Even when third-party candidates themselves may not have a chance of winning, which candidates they compete against can certainly have an effect on the election results,” he said.

“But he also said once Obama was sworn into office on Jan. 20, the question no longer was over a potentially ineligible candidate but of the removal of a sitting president.”

This again goes to who can remove a sitting president. If the individual is constitutionally ineligible (usurper), Quo Warranto. The only other option is impeachment of a legitimate president. Not the Twenty-Fifth Amendment in this case. Just my humble opinion from a thousand hours of reading the research.

Carter goes on:

OREGON, Ohio — A furious Ohio mother says her 7-year-old son, who has had problems with medications, was vaccinated for swine flu at school against her wishes.

Kim Lutheran works as a nurse and says her son, Matthew, has had bad reactions to medicine. So, she says she signed for “no consent” on a vaccination form and then circled her intentions with a black marker to make things clear to the boy’s public school in the Toledo suburb of Oregon.

When the historians finally finish sorting through the appalling decisions that have been made in the past two years, this one will probably be at the top of the heap.

Last fall, as AIG began to realize how screwed it was, it started negotiating with the counterparties to all the credit default swaps it had written. One of the AIG’s goals was to persuade these counterparties-

These sorts of negotiations are exactly what should happen when a company gets in trouble. It goes to its creditors and says, look, we can’t pay you everything, so here’s your choice: Take something, or take your chances in banktuptcy court. (And, in this case, this wouldn’t have been much of a choice, given the standing of CDS holders in the liquidation line).

Fox News helps the U.S. military promote its recruitment drive for civilian employees. The military is looking for “crime scene investigators” to join its ranks. Perhaps FEMA camp guards too? Fox also promotes mental evaluation tests for children run by the military that will “reduce depression”.

FLASHBACK: Army National Guard Advertises for “Internment Specialists [2]

Doubt the government plans to impose martial law and round up dissidents and other malcontents? Well, the Army National Guard is advertising for qualified personnel to work as Corrections Officers and Internment/Resettlement Specialists [3].

“As an Internment/Resettlement Specialist for the Army National Guard, you will ensure the smooth running of military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility, similar to those duties conducted by civilian Corrections Officers,” a classified ad posted on the web states. “This will require you to know proper procedures and military law; and have the ability to think quickly in high-stress situations. Specific duties may include assisting with supervision and management operations; providing facility security; providing custody, control, supervision, and escort; and counseling individual prisoners in rehabilitative programs.”

CNN and the L.A. Times are speculating that Congressman Ron Paul may be about to announce that he will run for President in 2012 following the revelation that the Texan will speak at rallies in two key early caucus states next month.

Paul will visit the key early primary state of South Carolina on Nov. 9 to give a speech on “the future of individual liberty and the importance of the U.S. Constitution” at the University of South Carolina. He then moves on to Iowa, another key early presidential battleground, on Nov. 13 to speak to students at Iowa State University.

President Obama and his top health officials are engaging in a major public relations effort to divert attention away from whether its swine flu vaccine is effective and safe – to whether there is enough of it to go around. And the media, as always, is cooperating fully. This echoes the way media debate was manipulated during the Vietnam and Iraq Wars. Instead of debating whether we should even be fighting those wars, the media debated only whether we were using the correct military strategy.

Average Americans

Contrary to what my title indicates, I probably judge Barack Obama more harshly than most reading this. I don’t think he is just a misguided ideologue or merely a creature of expediency. I believe, practically speaking, that he is an evil man. That is to say, while he is largely ignorant like so many others, he has developed an affinity for evil. He mistakes it for good.

Yet, Obama doesn’t alarm me as much as the average American. To explain why, I’ll present something Roman philosopher and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero said 2000 years ago when lamenting Julius Caesar’s rise to dictator:

Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions . . . . Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean ‘more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.’ Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man.

Barack Obama is only one man. A bad man, yes, but he is a symptom more than a cause. Without millions of fawning Americans, he would just be a community agitator, preaching Alinsky principles from a soapbox. Of course, he is a symptom that exacerbates the underlying problem, and symptomatic treatment — to ease immediate pain and hardship — is certainly in order. But it is only the worst of physicians who ignore the cancer eating away at the patient.

Swine Flu Panic in Perspective
American Thinker ^ | October 29, 2009 | Frank S. Rosenbloom, M.D.

Posted on Thursday, October 29, 2009 2:49:51 AM by neverdem

I usually see about twenty patients in my office, and at least a few patients in the hospital, daily. Over the past several months, my patient load has increased by one third. Almost all of the increase is due to fears about H1N1 influenza.

Patients are coming to the office fearful of “Swine Flu,” with symptoms ranging from a slight sniffle to overt pneumonia. After seeing hundreds of cases of “flu” over the past several months and testing all of those who fit the clinical picture of influenza, I have confirmed only three genuine cases of H1N1. Two of these cases were in physicians and one was in a nurse.

 

All of the other cases turned out to be allergies, typical viral or bacterial infections, or the seasonal flu. Additionally, all three had mild illness and recovered with symptomatic treatment. The graph below shows the percentage of visits for influenza-like illness reported by the U.S. Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network for the week ending October 17, 2009. Note the much higher percentage of visits for
flu-like illnesses this year. (Fig 1)

Well, we can add another dubious decision to the list of sacrifices the Obama Administration has made to alter of international engagement. Today it was announced that the Obama Administration had agreed to cede much U.S. control over the non-profit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) that regulates and manages the Domain Name System under which Internet Protocol addresses and registration of top-level domains like .org and .com are assigned. According to a story in the Guardian:

The deal, part of a contract negotiated with the US department of commerce, effectively pushes California-based Icann towards a new status as an international body with greater representation from companies and governments around the globe.

“You can’t handle the truth. Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because, deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said “thank you” and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand at post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.”

Obama Cannot Accept Nobel Prize Without Congress’ Consent, Three House Republicans Claim

Posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 11:41:55 PM by GoldStandard

As critics continue to mull over whether President Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Prize, Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite says the U.S. Constitution does not allow him to accept the award without the consent of Congress.

In a letter to Obama delivered on Monday, Brown-Waite, R-Fla., along with Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, claim the president is obligated under the Constitution to obtain Congress’ approval before he formally accepts the prize.

Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, the emolument clause, states: “And no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince or foreign state.”

Does eligibility court clerk have ties to Obama ?
WorldNetDaily ^ | October 29, 2009 | Chelsea Schilling

Posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 10:55:34 PM by RobinMasters

Bloggers are buzzing about a law clerk who purportedly works in the same California court that’s hearing a lawsuit challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president – and his possible ties to a law firm that has defended Obama in other eligibility cases.

A Wikipedia page has been cited by dozens of bloggers after it listed Siddarth Velamoor as one of the newest law clerks for federal Judge David Carter – who is hearing the eligibility case Barnett v. Obama, in the Central District, Southern Division Court in Santa Ana, Calif.

Velamoor is also listed in the Martindale lawyer database as an associate of international law firm Perkins Coie, the same law firm of Robert Bauer – top lawyer for Obama, Obama’s presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and Obama’s Organizing for America – and the same Washington, D.C., lawyer who defended President Obama in lawsuits challenging his eligibility to be president.

As WND has reported, Federal Election Commission records for “Obama for America” show that the lobby organization has paid Perkins Coie exactly $1,666,397.01 since the 2008 election.

WND has also reported that Bauer sent a letter to plaintiff Gregory Hollister, a retired Air Force colonel, of Hollister v. Soetoro, threatening sanctions if he didn’t withdraw his appeal of the eligibility case that earlier was tossed by a district judge because the issue already had been “twittered.” Bauer also represented Obama and the DNC in Philip Berg’s eligibility lawsuit and various other legal challenges.

EXECUTIVE ORDER # 11921 NOW IN USE !!!!!

Saturday, October 24, 2009 3:35 PM
There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft’s list.

The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.

Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.

The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.

Ben Stein on Barack Obama : We’ve Figured Him Out
American Spectator ^ | 2009 | Ben Stein

Posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 3:37:12 PM by SeekAndFind

Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?

Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a “community organizer,” Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Zell Miller: Dump 7th Amendment
Maverick Democrat wants to go back to legislatures appointing U.S. senators


Posted: April 28, 2004
5:00 p.m. Eastern



© 2004 WorldNetDaily.com Georgia Democratic Sen. Zell Miller is calling for the United States to restore the wishes of its Founding Fathers and empower state legislatures to appoint senators rather than be elected by voters. The retiring Miller, who has garnered attention over the past year with stinging critiques of his Democratic Party, believes rescinding the 17th Amendment would curb the power of special interests in Washington while increasing the power of state governments.

“The individuals are not so much at fault as the rotten and decaying foundation of what is no longer a republic,” Miller said on the Senate floor, according to the Associated Press. “It is the system that stinks. And it’s only going to get worse because that perfect balance our brilliant Founding Fathers put in place in 1787 no longer exists.”

UNITED NATIONS — Red-faced United Nations officials on Monday admitted to a major security lapse after a UN guard helped Kentucky Fried Chicken’s “Colonel Sanders” gain access to restricted areas.

The guard escorted the white-suited intruder past security barriers, where he got a handshake from the UN General Assembly president, Dr. Ali A. Treki of Libya.

The faux fast food chain founder also posed for a picture beneath the assembly’s giant UN logo, which overlooks the spot where world leaders address their international counterparts.

“It should not have happened — that I will stress, and very strongly,” said Michele Montas, spokeswoman for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

“There was some lapse in security and the individual in question . . . was, on the initiative of one security guard, taken . . . into the UN.”

The real Harland “Colonel” Sanders typically wore a white suit and string bow tie, but he has been dead since 1980.

Obama redefines White House relationship with top field commander
L..A. Times ^ | 10/28/09 | Julian E. Barnes

President Obama does not have the one-on-one relationship with Gen. McChrystal that President Bush did with Gen. Petraeus, but rather a more traditional one along the chain of command.

Reporting from Washington – President Obama and his predecessor differ significantly in their approach to America’s wars. They differ at least as much in their relationship with their top battlefield commander.

During the Bush administration, Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, the then-ground commander in Iraq, assumed the role of a trusted advisor who frequently visited the White House or talked to the president by phone.

Appeal filed in Obama eligibility argument
‘Court cannot refuse to hear a case because it prefers not’


Posted: October 27, 2009
8:43 pm Eastern



WorldNetDaily

 

A case alleging Congress failed in its constitutional duties by refusing to investigate the eligibility of Barack Obama to be president has been sent on appeal to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

WND previously reported when a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit filed by Charles F. Kerchner Jr. and others against Congress.

Attorney Mario Apuzzo filed the action in January on behalf of Kerchner, Lowell T. Patterson, Darrell James Lenormand and Donald H. Nelson Jr. Named as defendants were Barack Hussein Obama II, the U.S., Congress, the Senate, House of Representatives and former Vice President Dick Cheney along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The case focuses on the alleged failure of Congress to follow the Constitution. That document, the lawsuit states, “provides that Congress must fully qualify the candidate ‘elected’ by the Electoral College Electors.”

The case asserts “when Obama was born his father was a British subject/citizen and Obama himself was the same.”

(Story continues below)

The Constitution provides, the lawsuit says, “If the president-elect shall have failed to qualify, then the vice president elect shall act as president until a president shall have qualified.”

See the movie Obama does not want you to see: Own the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential eligibility mystery!

“There existed significant public doubt and grievances from plaintiffs and other concerned Americans regarding Obama’s eligibility to be president and defendants had the sworn duty to protect and preserve the Constitution and specifically under the 20th Amendment, Section 3, a Constitutional obligation to confirm whether Obama, once the electors elected him, was qualified,” the case explained.

The attorney now has posted online a notice of his appeal to the 3rd Circuit in Philadelphia.

“Through his dismissal, Judge Simandle avoided having to reach the merits of the question of whether Obama is an Article II ‘natural born citizen’ and eligible for the office of president and commander in chief,” Apuzzo said.

Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution tells us that “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” In the history of the United States there have been only three Presidential impeachment proceedings:

Following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, his successor, Andrew Johnson, served some two years, seven months, and six days before the first articles of impeachment were lodged against him.

Richard Nixon served four years, three months, and ten days before the Washington Post published a report tying the Watergate burglars to his 1972 reelection campaign. There were immediate calls for his impeachment.

The New World Order is “Communism”

September 11, 2009
karl-marx-MED.jpg

by Henry Makow, Ph.D.

(This incorporates, revises and updates the essential “Central Bankers Seek Totalitarian Power” from Nov. 2003.)

Most people think Communism is an ideology dedicated to public ownership and championing workers and the poor. This was a simple but incredibly successful ruse which duped hundreds of millions. The ideology appealed to people who want something for nothing- rather a large segment.

Communism is a form of monopoly capitalism with the State fronting for the monopoly capitalists. It’s no different from the West where the State fronts for monopoly capital, except in Communism the State is more totalitarian and more intrusive. This is what we can look forward to.

East or West, Communism is devoted to concentrating all wealth and power in the hands of the central banking cartel (the Rothschilds and their allies) by disguising it as State power. (The State is run by witting & unwitting agents of the Rothschilds. When the USSR dissolved, the national wealth was divided between mostly Jewish “oligarchs” who were fronts for the Rothschilds.)

Any ideology that further concentrates wealth and power in the hands of the “State” is Communism in another guise. These ideologies — socialism, liberalism, fascism, neo-conservatism, zionism and feminism — are fronts for “Communism,” and are organized and funded by the central banking cartel.

The Balance between Power and Freedom
By Daniel Greenfield
imagePower and freedom are both quantities that can only co-exist at the individual level. Power at the institutional level is inimical to individual freedom, because power at the institutional level is most commonly represented in the form of control. Some control is of course necessary, it is why government exists as a necessary evil. It is why we must have courts and police officers, armies, inspectors and assorted other functional arms of the system. But that necessary evil is a balance between freedom and authority. And at the point where the necessary evil becomes an unnecessary evil, the balance tilts toward tyranny.

Perhaps he’s made his judgments from George Clooney’s movie Good Night and Good Luck that continued the smear campaign against Senator Joseph McCarthy while lionizing leftist reporter Edward R. Murrow. Beck wasn’t born in 1935, so perhaps he is unaware in that year the leftist National Education Association promoted a summer school held in Moscow, Russia, at which commissars (czars) were to teach and DID teach hundreds of American teachers. Some of the biggest names in American Education including now deceased John Dewey were sponsors of that school along with such members of the mass liberal media as Edward R. Murrow who later dispensed pro-Soviet disinformation.

Did Schwarzenegger drop 4-letter bomb in veto? (Yes)
San Francisco Gate ^ | October 27, 2009 | Phillip Matier,Andrew Ross, Chronicle Columnists

Posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 7:25:17 AM by tlb

SACRAMENTO — Did Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office use a coded veto message to send the f-bomb to Tom Ammiano, soon after the San Francisco assemblyman made news by telling the governor to “kiss my gay ass”?

Schwarzenegger’s people say no. But the X-rated evidence is hard to miss in a message that Schwarzenegger sent to explain why he was vetoing an Ammiano bill dealing with financing for the Port of San Francisco.

A straight reading of the guv’s letter laments “the fact that major issues are overlooked while many unnecessary bills come to me for consideration,” and concludes, “I believe it is unnecessary to sign this measure at this time.”

But a vertical read of the far-left-hand letters in each of the missive’s eight lines offers a more blunt explanation: “I f- you.”

Schwarzenegger’s press secretary, Aaron McLear, insisted Tuesday it was simply a “weird coincidence.”

Obama: A Man Apart (Or titled “a basketball player who has been asked to bat”
human events ^ | 10/28/09 | Herbert London

Posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 8:17:33 AM by bestintxas

Albert Camus was expert at describing a man apart, an existential man The Stranger, who didn’t belong in the society in which he found himself. He didn’t have emotional roots; in fact, this character was haunted by shadows — the real and the metaphorical. He is the quintessential rebel challenging normative standards.

At the risk of drawing literary comparisons, I am persuaded based on his performance that President Obama is a man apart. He seems to equate power with arrogance; pride with willfulness and exceptionalism with dominance. As a consequence, he has changed foreign policy perceptions. The America he leads is a nation like any other — no more, no less. In fact, as a Nobel laureate, he is considered by the Europeans as a man of the world, not merely a citizen of the United States.

When asked if the United States is exceptional, President Obama said America is exceptional and England is exceptional and Greece is exceptional. That the United States is sui generis didn’t cross his mind. How could it? He is pledged to a scenario in which America opts out of its traditional role as peace keeper, the balance wheel in maintaining international equilibrium. The war against terrorists is over along with the nation’s hegemonic role.

Blood For Nothing

GIs die while Taliban thrives

By Ralph Peters

Afghanistan isn’t completely hopeless, just useless. It’! s a strategic joke with a bloody punch line.

Even if everything went perfectly in Afghanistan — which it won’t — the results would be virtually meaningless: Our mortal enemies (above all, al Qaeda) have dug in elsewhere, from Pakistan to Somalia.

Now we are warned that, unless we send another 40,000 US troops to convince Afghans we’re their friends, unspecified woes will fall upon us like biblical plagues.

Apart from the curious notion that sending more Infantrymen is the way to win hearts and minds, the hearts and minds of Afghans not only can’t be won, but aren’t worth winning.

Narcissistic Rage in the White House

By James Lewis

SEE ALSO:

The term “narcissistic rage” gets 26,000 citations in Google Scholar. It is a common feature of extreme or pathological narcissism.

While psychiatrists often say they can’t do long-distance diagnosis, it really isn’t that hard if you have a lot of information about a person and can watch how he operates from day to day. Intelligence agencies around the world have psychiatric staffs for exactly that purpose.
While most people are pretty hard to predict, extreme narcissists are comparatively simple. They constantly hunger for ego gratification, they are immature, constantly need to demonstrate their own superiority, often need endless sexual conquests (like Bill Clinton), are manipulative, constant liars, are completely cold about the human beings they harm (like John Edwards), and they deal with frustration by uncontrollable fits of rage.
I think that’s what we saw last week with the White House lashing out at Fox News.

Just wanted to pass along my thoughts about travel this year and the H1N1 flu… By: Devvy

October 28, 2009 Leave a comment

(Mailing list information, including unsubscription instructions, is located at the end of this message.)
__

The holidays are fast approaching. Hard to believe. Where did this year go? Just wanted to pass along my thoughts about travel this year and the H1N1 flu.

Back in 1993, I traveled from California to Colorado (home at the time).  Of course, this involves eating in restaurants and sleeping in hotels. By the time I got to the Denver metro area, I was very, very sick. Bottom line, I had the Beijing flu. I refused the shot and pills. Eight days later after treating myself, I was fine and haven’t had the flu since. Almost 16 years.

I will be traveling to No. California to see my family for Thanksgiving. Driving as usual because I don’t fly commercial airlines. Back in July, I made my hotel reservation at a large Indian Casino about 5 miles from my parents home. Why? Location and rates same as Comfort Inn. Their rooms are large, and beautifully decorated. The Comfort Inn is 15 miles down the hill from mom’s; the casino is five.

However, a few weeks ago, I started thinking about big crowds and this flu virus.  While I don’t gamble there, the hotel is always mobbed with people. You have to cross the large gambling area to the stairs or elevator to the second floor to register. I decided I just didn’t want to be in that environment. While it’s extra time and miles, I booked at the Comfort Inn. It’s a large, really nice hotel. Walk in the lobby, the elevator is right there and you’re in your room. Refer and microwave.

My parents are 83 & 84. Any kind of flu or cold could be fatal because both of them have health problems (especially my step father) which means compromised immune systems. Best for me to take the long road than endanger them. Or, getting there sick and having to drive all the way home without seeing my mommy.

I also learned to travel with my flannel blankey. It fits into a medium rag bag. Hotels (I don’t know about the swanky ones because I can’t afford to stay at them) do not wash blankets on the beds between customer stays. Sheets, yes. Blankets, no.
