On the way home my grandson and I stopped at Sheri's to eat. The food was TERRIBLE. When I complained I was told....WAIT FOR IT..... Because of OBAMA CARE they were unable to hire reliable cooks and it is what it is. OBAMA'S FAULT. I all but lost it. Stopped a soldier in the parking lot and asked him if he knew what else Obama was responsible for. We agreed on everything and have a new friend. OBAMA CARE made lousy food, I have never heard some crazy sh** like that before. I will write a complaint to Sheri's, not that they care, but I feel I want to let the world knew what stupidity can do to you. Needless to say I will not return.
OBAMA'S FAULT! Can you believe it!
Anita Perez I have heard similar idiocies. Apparently it was also Obama's fault that we had a computer shutdown, that we had no rooms available at the inn, and that a particular couple got charged for a missing coffee machine in their room that MYSTERIOUSLY turned up in their car. It was also his fault that we charged them $125 for it- (it's a Keurig.) Apparently they also made off with the hair-dryer, the remote control for the TV, AND the toilet seat. I suppose that is also Obama's fault. BTW- they were white, were driving a Mercedes, and wearing very expensive clothing. To hear them rant like fools while this discovery process was underway, you'd think Barack himself stole this stuff and put it in their car.
So here is one for you...Pres Obama had NOT intended, I AM SURE.
My 5-year old great grandson ZooZoo broke his arm while playing at the playground Aug.13th about 7:24PM. At the hospital they treated him and reset his arm. So HERE IS THE KICKER!!!! He is wearing a SPLINT because Melina is his insurance and an APPROVAL for a cast is required. This is FRIDAY 8/14 and nothing. Imagine what will happen to his arm if this is not attended to in a timely fashion.
Aside from this his mother will lose another day of work, unpaid. Please say something about this so I can put it on my TV Show .... It is a disgrace. When I was 9 I broke my arm in this fashion, now, at 68 it is Still giving me trouble and it WAS ATTENDED to properly
Here are the responses as they came in, I did NOT change or edit anything.
Tamara I'm not sure, but did want to share because I do agree that there is a problem with what insurance companies are doing. They are requiring preapproval on items relating to health to reduce their bottom line. A great
example of this is the 20,000 dollar bill that I got for Elijah's emergency care in May. I thought my son was going to die and when he was released I ended up getting a bill for his care. Initially they said his care was not covered because I did not get preapproval. My response "for emergency services!?!" I later appealed and it was once again denied...the reason this time was that they did not think his care was necessary even though he slept for 26 hours straight and was still showing signs of something on board. Insurance companies are crossing a line when they are not considering the needs of the patient in order to reduce their overall cost. I wanted to share this because I believe the system is broken and there needs to be more controls because what they are doing is so wrong
Lilian Mustelier I am going on Blog radio next week to discuss this, may I use what you wrote, if so, who was your insurance Company Tamara
Rachelle That is ridiculous!! Preapproval for ER services, that is absurd. I'd keep appealing it. Get the doctors/ER services to write you a note or something.
Holy crap I thought they aren't supposed to cast right away in a break anyway because of the swelling??? I know that isn't the point of the story though. Sounds like someone is slacking !

On the flip side of the coin, I just wrote Obama a letter to thank him for saving my life.
Here is that letter I wrote to President Obama yesterday. Feel free to share it:
Dear President Obama;
I am writing to thank you for saving my life. In February of 2014, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Mid-scoring on the gleason index, my doctor told me that the cancer would surely kill me in about a dozen years. At that time, I had no health insurance so, without Obamacare becoming available just then, I would not have been able to get coverage with this pre-existing condition. In March - the following month - I signed up for health insurance, using the ACA’s online marketplace -which was working just fine by then. And I decided to make my health condition public, in order to persuade my many Facebook friends to sign up for insurance with the ACA as well (if they hadn’t already done so). And to get screened for cancer.
In the years preceding implementation of the Affordable Care Act, I saw friends of mine die of cancer or some other deadly disease requiring expensive treatments. A carpenter, a waitress, an artist - none of whom could afford the health insurance premiums under the broken mess we had before the ACA came along. And I likely would have shared their fate.
With my pre-existing condition, I would have had to pay $77,000.00 out of pocket for the radiation treatments needed to send the cancer into remission. And I don’t have that kind of money. Knowing me, I would have kept postponing treatment - growing increasingly desperate as the cancer progressed. But thanks to Obamacare, I did not have to choose between death and financial ruin. The insurance I was able to obtain paid for forty five radiation sessions, which *did* send the cancer into remission. With the most recent results in hand, my doctors have declared me 90% cured. Your enormous efforts to get this desperately needed legislation passed has not only saved my life, but the lives of other folks I know personally, who have been able to get essential treatments using the Affordable Care Act. This humane and cost effective program has not only saved lives, it has improved the quality of life for me, my friends, and millions of my fellow Americans. Not only are you President of the United States, you are a leader of Civilization itself - persuading others around the Planet to do the right thing. And by your example, you have shown us how enormous obstacles may be overcome in order to help one another. Thanks to you and others in this effort, the future for us all looks more and more promising.

Here are a few more comments from friends wishing to stay anonymous.
Example number one:
Citizen has a very specific medical condition that her physician is familiar with and had treated successfully for several years. The condition required hospitalization and due to recent changes in insurance and policies at the hospital, she had to go to the ER and be admitted. She did not see her own physician a single time while in the hospital. There are staff physicians that work 12-24 hour shifts and the support staff is similarly scheduled. This resulted in having different nurses and doctors each day, and each time an exhaustive series of questions was presented prior to any healthcare being provided. The medications her personal physician had prescribed were not dosed in the manner in which she was accustomed, resulting in a worsening of her overall condition. Once she was released, she was able to get back on the schedule she needed and is now back on track. When she questioned this series of events, she was told that due to current healthcare reforms and insurance procedures this is now SOP.
Example number two:
This medical center is extremely unreliable and full of incompetence. I was going to arrive a few minutes early for my appointment because otherwise I knew that I would be forced to wait the usual couple of hours to be seen. I received a call informing me that I no longer had an appointment that day because the nurse practitioner would not be coming in. I should add that I have only seen my physician on one occasion and have been forced to see the nurse practitioner the other few times that I have been ill. This was a major inconvenience because I was going out of town and would not be available at any other time after this week, and the clinic claimed to have no other person who could see me for a simple physical that day. I will be switching to another clinic immediately, even though this means that I will have to drive all the way to XXXXX
Example number three:
XXXXX Hospitals hopes that folks who get sick in the country won't head to the city to get well. The company, a spinoff of hospital giant HCA, operates more than 50 hospitals located in non-urban areas. In most cases, the hospitals (which house more 5,900 beds combined) are the only available acute care facilities in the region. XXXXX hospitals are located in 17 states, with the heaviest concentrations in Kentucky, New Mexico, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The company participates (and owns a 4% stake) in the HealthTrust Purchasing Group, a group purchasing organization that negotiates competitive contracts on medical supplies and equipment.
Bear in mind this is all I know due to Hippa rules but 3 patients died in early 2012 at XXXXX Regional Hospital due to untreated sepsis. No antibiotics were given in the emergency room and none given on the med/surg floor where they were admitted. This hospital is so greedy that they cut staff immediately when docs discharge patients, knowing that the dr. Offices admit in the afternoon. When admits come in the nurses are so understaffed that they can not adequately care for patients and provide vital meds and care. The turnover rate for nurses is phenomenal because competent nurses see the danger and leave, many before their orientation is complete. This hospital is left with staff that work under impossible conditions and are pushed to the limit every day. There are a few competent people remaining but they are exceptions to the rule. This place is a death trap and it is a game of chance you play,being a patient there. On their geropsych unit they rip off medicare, taking sick patients with simple economically treatable diseases like urinary tract infections and electrolyte imbalances. Instead of a $20 script of antibiotics they are thrown into a psych unit and medicare is billed 35-40 thousand dollars. They staff with LPNs instead of RNs on nights to save money. They literally will risk patient’s lives to save a dime. If you are in Overton county, Tennessee, Livingston, Tn. And in need of health care. Drive,on through.
Example number four:
Epic fail . I know lots of changes at your office but letting my little one go without meds is wrong. One angry Mommy.
XXXXX is a joke.. my mom had a stroke and had to go there for a a follow up. She had to send papers in on the 5th of August in order to get temp disability until she went back to work and she brought them to them to fill out on the 2nd. They told her they would be done later that day. Well we called every day for a week and then on the 8th day they finally had them done there were only 3 papers and some of them were just checking yes or no and singing. Then they blamed it on my sick mother because she didn't go to therapy because her insurance wouldn't pay for it, and it would have been $75 a day. And they said that they didn't know all of her information or improvements because she didn't go to therapy!
I finally got her "concentration" meds refilled after 2 phone calls from me, a request from the pharmacy and a trip to the office where I said I need samples or a script OR I bring bring her here and sit ALL DAY long every day with her wired for sound. Lol. I've never had a problem other than the occasional fax machine didn't work until this summer when both of my kids doctors decided to leave the practice and use up all their personal time before doing so. I have made an appointment with the "new" doctor. We'll see how it goes and if things straighten out and if not I guess we will be following her old doctor at her new office. I love most of the staff there but no reason I should have to make 5 or 6 trips a month there due to no refills plus her normal weekly visits for shots. My kid feeling good and doing well in school and liking it is way more important than being loyal after all these years. XXXXX, don't get me started on leave papers. That's why I lost my job at XXX because of screwed up and incomplete papers that wasn't my fault.
Before I forget, if you have someone in a nursing home with no physician on record, they will be switched to Hospice and receive care by a doctor who makes house-calls. By being switched from Medicare to Hospice it provides no coverage for room and board and diapers. You are liable for said expense.
The problem we have here is not one of Obamacare but greed in corporate America, the Insurance Industry specifically, and the Hospital Business taking precedence over the health of the people. There was a book by John Grisham, The Rainmaker, published in 1996 that exposes the entire system. This was way before Barack Obama.
On my way home my grandson saw this van and took a picture of it. ZooZoo has a temporary cast, it has be be rechecked to make sure the bones are still in place. Needless to say he has suffered so because when the splint was removed everything, including X-Rays had to be repeated and it is looking “FORWARD” of another round of torture in a couple of weeks.
Washington, Oregon and California are on fire. Firefighters have died and it is frightful. I am sure this situation will continue several more weeks and I will discuss this in next month newsletter, by then we should be able to tally up what happened.
A pilot of a commercial airliner made a mistake that PROVES the existence of “CHEMTRAILS” — by forgetting to turn them off before he landed! We have video of the plane landing while still spraying CHEMTRAILS as it hits the runway. This is the first empirical evidence to back-up claims made. people, smeared as “conspiracy-theorists,” who claimed airlines are being used by government to spray aerosols into the air without the knowledge or consent of the people being sprayed. With proof like this, the public now has legal standing to file lawsuits, utilize subpoenas and force discovery of evidence. The 1 minute blockbuster video appears below.
Markus Aurel posts us his latest slide that speaks for itself:
It is the HOTTEST Summer on the globe ever recorded.
Motel 6 exploded in Bremerton WA and NOT once did anyone report it different than it really was.... A GAS LEAK!
Straight out of Compton hit the movies and it is a very good movie, brought back memories for those of us involved with issues of that time period.
I was featured in the OFFCamera Newsletter this month.
Producer's Spotlight: Lilian Mustelier
by Dan Bennett
Lilian Mustelier became a member of TCTV 17 years ago. She immediately began producing her show: “A Visit With A Person Of High Strangeness”. Since then,her program has featured a wide variety of guests,topics,and field locations
across the country.
Lilian has generously offered music and guests to other producers, and many of her family members have gotten involved and expanded their horizon. When asked why she has been doing her show for nearly 2 decades,she said:”I want to encourage people to think. I started doing reality TV before Reality TV. I want viewers to walk away with their own perspective because my shows are politically and religiously neutral. And the shows are not just about the paranormal,I want them to be culturally diverse with something for everybody.”
Lilian has produced over 800 shows and has no intention of quitting or slowing down, for which I am certain many viewers are grateful! Be sure to check out her show:”A Visit With A person Of High Strangeness” Tuesday at 9pm, Fridays at 11am, and Saturdays at 5pm and on YouTube @YouTube.com.psygeria.
One Friday morning 2 weeks ago my heart stopped for a moment. When it restarted itself it was beating in an opposite rhythm. I had to wear a 24-hour heart monitor. The nurse almost broke my ribs as she prepared and “cleaned” my chest and against my advice used very little glue to secure the wiring of the monitor. I drove home without fastening my seat-belt, sat very still from 5pm until the wires just fell off in the 90+ heat at 11pm. I called the hospital and was advised they were unable to fix the problem so the next day...in between fiddling with her I-pad the nurse suggested I do it again. Someone has to cover those expenses and it makes me angry when NO MATTER what happens...Wait for it...
Love and Light
We aired a show in Vanya Arnold's honor. It deals with suicide and mental disorders. YouTube blocked it in some countries because of the music on the clip. We re-made the show and my dear friend Fritz Mayr wrote the music. So here it is in writing:
Fritz Mayr This must be dear Lilian because it is my own Music and Free for use for you
Lilian Mustelier It is beautiful and I thank you. The sparkles on the end blew me away. THANK YOU!!!!
Fritz Mayr thank you dear Lilian great you like it, i thought it is good doing it this way.
