A Spanish Version of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' ??????

Well this seems very interesting to me. Now that all the Mexicans intends on calling in on Monday May 1st someone is trying to lessen the pain by doing this. I have heard the song and it is a pretty song but isn't this AMERICA??? This is OUR land. Do we not speak ENGLISH Here? For a while now I have been watching the news about all the illegal immigrants to the US and have held back on blogging about it. But now that I have seen this I feel in my heart as a American I must write my true feelings on the situation. I can say that I am for letting people come to the United States of America, but what I want is for them to do it LEGALLY!!! Yes we do have a situation here in the US where immigrants have come in and taken all of the low paying jobs but you know what I have to say that if they can do it why not make the people that are on welfare with 20 kids do it. No don't get me wrong I am not going get all racial on ya but listen to what I am saying. We have ALOT of people on welfare and more get on it everyday and think that WE as Americans should take care of them. Well I say NO! NO! NO! NO! If you were born here and you are able to work then by GOD you should use the 2 hands that god gave you and work. Don't make it so that someone has to take care of you. Stand up and do something. Yes we all start out with the minimum wage and we all have to work our way up the ladder of success. Take me for instance. I have worked since I was 16 years old. The day I turned 16 my step mother made me get my ass out and get a job so that I can earn a living. I worked in Fast Food for a long time. Then I went into factory work and even some customer service jobs and finally found out that I can work on computers. I knew hardly anything about computers. I got on with a company and they trained me in all I needed to know about working on them and how to repair them. I really enjoy my job and I like coming to work and helping others. But for us to sit back and say well I am too good to do this job or that job is a total outrage to me. I mean really I have done everything from all cow manure to work on million dollar computer systems so don't say that it can't be done. Also I praise companies like Mc Donald's, Arby's, Taco Bell to name a few who take in people with special needs and give them a job and if they can do it ANYONE can do it. So I say NO to the Spanish version of our Countries Star-Spangled Banner. You came here and you live here now so speak our language or GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM!!!!

Road Rage in America

Okay so what the hell is up with people that drive like 30 mph in the damn fast lane on a freeway? I mean really come on now do you really have to be in the far left lane to drive on the freeway? Oh and 18 wheelers do the same damn thing. I am like get the hell OFF the road! I think that in major cities between the hours of 7am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm that 18 wheelers should not be allowed to be on the road. I have seen so many crashes involving them that it is like WTF are people thinking? You know what is worse is that I have seen 18 wheelers driving and talking on there cell phones. First off I know that we are all a digital community but really if that call is that important please pull off the road or get a hands free or something I mean come on!!!! I think that most people in the US have Road Rage or some varient there of. I know that when I drive behind someone and they are on there damn cell phone in the fast lane and doing 40mph that really gets my blood pumping. Then when they finally move over they give you the bird like your are the bad person. PLEASE! Well I guess I will shut up for now.

The uvulo-palato-pharyngoplasty (UPPP) and tonsillectomy was a sucess!!

Well the surgery went off without a hitch. I went in Friday morning at 9:15am and they tried to take my blood. Poor girl I thought she was gonna faint from sticking my arms so man times. I was then asked to change into a gown. Oh and by the way if any of you that read this work for a hospital. Can we get something a little less revealing?? I was then asked to lay on a bed and I was asked 20 million questions and someone listened to me breath and someone was trying to get the IV started. Oh yeah that poor nurse. Oh I think I got it oh wait no it's not in...Oh wait yeah there it is. Then finally it came time for me to wait on the surgeon. And wait...and wait..Finally an hour later he finally shows up and they take me down this long hall and into a operating room. This is where I get myself on a surgery table and then they gas me and the next thing I remember I was waking up in the recovery room and my throat was sore as could be. So they took my tonsils out and then reconstructed my Uvulo and palate of my mouth. Unlike my friend Brian's surgery I had to stay overnight to make sure there was no bleeding or that I wasn't going to die. They nurses when I first got to my room was very nice and they were all attentive and asking me if I would like some pain medicine. Then they put these braces on my legs that filled with arm and then let out. It is so you don't get blood clots in your legs or anything and die. Well after all that I went back to sleep and slept most of the afternoon and evening. I remember waking up a couple times to see my partner Tom sitting there by my bedside. I was in and out of it and really just kinda sleeping it off. Well later that night of course you get woke up every damn hour on the hour to take your blood pressure and temperature. God why can't hosptials just leave you alone once you went to sleep? I do remember waking up at 4:15am and feeling that I needed some more pain medicine and called the nurse and asked her to bring me some. But she never showed up. I laid there and finally just went back to sleep. I woke up at 6:30am to the smell of eggs and cream of wheat that was on my tray and I was thinking to myself these people are HIGH if they think I am gonna be eatting anything soon. I took a few bites of egg and it was hard to swallow but I got some down along with a little cream of wheat. Then I remember my doctors med student coming in the room and talking to me for a few mins and then she left. I also remember asking for something for pain again at that time and not getting it. Finally around 8am 2 nurses came into my room to get me ready to go home and she asked if I was in pain and I said yes so she went and got me some morphine and tylenol with codine. WOO HOO was I loopy after that. They finally took my IV out and wheeled me down to the doors and I was out of there. The weekend was pretty rough and it was hard to swallow anything all weekend because it just hurt too damn bad. So today is 4 days after the surgery and the roof of my mouth feels so weird and I can feel the stiches in my mouth. I am not suppose to be talking so when I go to work I just sit here like a bump on a log and chat online and surf the web. Oh and let me just say that Tylenol with condine is my best friend right now! :-) Well I will let you all go for now and I am gonna try to get back to work or at least try like I am!
YEE HAW! Steak and eggs in no time!!!!

The uvulo-palato-pharyngoplasty (UPPP) and tonsillectomy surgery was a sucess!!!

Well now that I can finally sit up at the desk and type I thought I would let you know that I am home and recovering from my surgery. I was hoping for a little less pain but hey what do you expect when they cut your tonsils out and have your palate on the top of your mouth. Well I am sitting here at work today I know I should be at home but what the heck I figure I can some sit at my desk all day and get paid for it or stay home and do nothing all day and be bored. I have to say that Dr Sunwoo did a good job on me so far as I can tell. I can breath easier and it is hard for me to talk right now so i just mumble and type evertyhing. Well I am hoping that I can recover from this pretty quick. Hope you had a great weekend and I will let you know more about me later on.

The uvulo-palato-pharyngoplasty (UPPP) and tonsillectomy surgery is tomorrow!!

I am so nervous about having this surgery done on me since I have never had any surgery done on me before. You know I have seen medical shows where they have done surgery and all of that. But the thing is what if....What if something goes wrong..What if I wake up and can't talk the rest of my life. You know just wild thoughts like that. I know I am being a big baby about it but hey who cares. When it comes to pain and needles you can count me OUT! So the next couple of days you will probably see more post here on my blog I have in the past because I will be at home in bed and bored out fo my mind!!

Why we as americans put up with all the Policital BS

I am not one to complain about my government or anyting but after reading my friend Brian's Blog it got my blood pressure pumping about alot of things that we as AMERICANS have been put through. Here is what he had to say in his blog:

"To my Republican friends...
Forget what you see on TV. This president must be impeached.

We have been LIED to. Leaks that he authorized... fake investigations... secret illegal wiretaps against Americans... torture and imprisonment without cause or charge... the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands both here and abroad... a horrific war that HE chose against an unarmed people that had NOTHING to do with 9/11. He in unconcerned with American lives. He doesn't care who dies.

We want the kids home and safe. Then we want a 2006 election that will give us freakin' subpoena power, and the right to hold hearings. I mean, we can't even hold an oversight hearing. This guy is unchecked. So everything he does is on the sly, because there's no one to check his power, except the members of his own party who are little loyalist lapdogs.

Remember after Sept. 11, the whole world said, "We are all Americans now"? OK. For the next six months, WE ARE ALL DEMOCRATS NOW.

Like it or not, if you love the Constitution, and you think that it was a really smart way to set up a government, and you think that a republic is something valuable and really worth holding on to, you've got to just forget the partisanship, just like we did after 9/11, and say to yourselves, "We are all Democrats now," because we are literally voting to save the Republic. Back then, we were all united, without parties, to protect our country and what it stands for.

Listen, I know the humiliation of having your president impeached. I understand it. Of course, it was frivolous and political, what they did to him, and he was adjudicated 'not guilty' in the Senate (which everybody loves to leave out)... however, I lived through 1998. It's time for you to live through 2006. I've been through it. I'll help you."

The whole thing that got to me in a big way. I use to live in Texas. I love texas ALOT and really wanna move back there but somewhere else might be better.
But now after all the alligations of wire taps and spying on everyone the question becomes....Are we safe at all????

Saint Louis Cardinals

Well the St Louis Cardinals are off to another great year here at the new Busch Stadium in the gateway to the west. I really wish we could have one at least one game against the Chicago Cubbies. But hey that is what we have another 70 games for. Well I did go to the new stadium this past Saturday for the tour and it was VERY COOL! I can't wait to go to my first game there. Speaking of which I do have some tickets that I just got this past week for this Sunday (Easter). I will have to let you know how I like the view from my seats and what not to miss while at the ballpark. I hope that everyone is doing good and check back soon!
