On Wednesday, March 12, my privacy was invaded by Alan Stie, from the OKDHS department of Adult Protective Services, saying someone filed an Adult Protective Services complaint indicating I was in danger, and yet he refused to say who filed the complaint. He harassed me with a large number of questions, forcing me to prove that I was oriented times three (a medical term indicating I know who I am, where I am, what time it is, and that I completely understand my situation), and he claimed that his supervisor, Russell Jones, is unavailable because he is in training. I tried to call Russell's supervisor, Gerald Davis, but did receive a call back for several hours, so I checked the OKDHS Website and on their DHS's Contact Us page found three email contact addresses. It was not clear which was appropriate, so I emailed all three

in this email.

I also copied the appropriate state oversight committees: Senate Health and Human Resources Co-Chairs Senator Todd Lamb and Senator Andrew Rice and the House Human Services Committee Chair Representative Ron Peters.

After 5pm that day I finally got the return call from, but he was not helpful. I told him that while waiting for him to return the call I had filed a complaint with the three contact emails for OKDHS, and that I had also contacted the appropriate state oversight committees in the legislature. He said he was not worried about the legislature because "they work for us, as taxpayers, we don't work for them." I wonder of the legislators share his opinion of their lack of power.

On Friday, March 14 I got a response from Representative Ron Peters, who apparently talked to Cynthia Kinkade, and also this email from Cynthia Kinkade, who copied Sharon Neuwald and (the man I tried to call). I responded with this email.

Another response came from Kathy King, who called and was very polite so I forwarded a copy of my email to her

She replied and said
Thank you, Sir. State Office just forwarded them to me. I need to leave, but, will read, in entirety, very soon. Good Luck! And, I SO appreciate your graciousness, and calmness, in your rough road.
Kathy King
Area VI APS Field Liaison
I responded
You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, and being gracious and calm may not get me the information I want, but being an absolute a$$hole and yelling at you would not be any more likely to get it, and it would just raise both my blood pressure and yours.

I still want the information, and I will get it. I just don't know how high I will have to go, and how many people I will have to hurt along the way.
Later I wrote this email.

Tuesday, March 18, I escalated with this email to the next in the line of bureaucrats: Stephen Scott, and since I called for him to contact my brother, I showed his email. Since they had been so courteous in their responses, I copied Kathy King and Cynthia Kinkade. I got a response from Stephen R. Scott, and I responded. I got an email from Kathy King, and I responded.

I did contact Kayla A. Bower at the Oklahoma Disability Law Center, and she referred me to one of their attorneys, Joy Turner. I have not yet heard from Joy.

I had an exchange with Russell Jones, the boss of the man that came to my house, but that I was unable to contact because he was out of town, and I had to go to his boss.

In my email to Stephen Scott, I indicated that if I had to escalate to his boss Larry Johnson (Field Operations Division Director), I would begin publically blogging about my experiences with OKDHS. He probably figured I was bluffing, but this post is the first of what may be many posts about them, and here is my email to his boss.

I also was not bluffing when I indicated that if I have to escalate to Marq Youngblood - Human Services Centers - Chief Operating Officer, I will also be asking some of my fellow bloggers to also blog about my experiences, and I will began contacting some local journalists I know, to see if I can get my story in local newspapers, on radio, and on TV. I will also begin contacting U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, U.S. Administration on Aging, National Association of State Units on Aging, and National Center on Elder Abuse, including the NCEA Hotline, and filing a complaint with Medicare, as well as my Federal Representative John Sullivan, and my Senators Tom Coburn and James Inhofe, and the chairs on any federal committees and subcommittees I believe will be interested.

You may be wondering why this is that important to me. You may feel that DHS does good work, both in the Child Protective Services and the Adult Protective Services areas. And most of the time you may be right. But we have all seen on TV cases where an overly aggressive CPS agent removes children crying and wanting to stay with their parents, and puts them in "The System", and we have all seen cases where "The System" places children with abusive Foster Parents, and the responsible CPS agent is too overworked or too lazy to properly monitor them, and they are hurt or killed.

And then imagine how you would feel if your health deteriorated to the point where you were a vulnerable adult, and an Adult Protective Services started asking you a bunch of invasive and degrading questions. I know I have enough friends and family that care for me that OKDHS is not going to be able to do anything to me against my will, but I also know that the person that triggered Alan's visit did not do so because I needed APS intervention. It was done for purely political reasons to hurt someone else, and I want to be as aggressive in pursuing her chain of command as I am pursuing Alan's, in order to protect some other vulnerable adult from an unnecessary visit from APS.

Muammar Gadaffi

allAfrica reported Colonel Muammar Gadaffi yesterday celebrated the anniversary of the birth of Prophet Muhammad with a two-hour speech in which he attacked the Scandinavian countries for besmirching the Prophet, the Arabs for monopolizing the Kaaba

Since it is located in Saudi Arabia, what would you have them do? Jack it up and out it on a large pallet and ship it to other Moslem countries? Or maybe blow it up, and send pieces to each Moslem country?
and signed off by describing the Bible as a forgery. "The Bible we have now is not the one that was revealed to Issa [Jesus] and the Old Testament is not the one that was revealed to Musa. Muhammad is mentioned in both (original versions),
Even though they were written hundreds and thousands of years before he was born.
but the Tora and Bible we have now, there is no mention of him," the Libyan leader, more known for his controversial statements than his piety, said.

"It means that it (Bible) has been forged. Prophet Muhammad was sent to mankind. Allah wanted mankind to have one religion. The Koran that we have is the only book that was sent by Allah. We believe in the Bible as well as the Tora."
As you are told to in 10:94, 16:43, 5:44, 2:213, 29:46, 6:4390. You just don't follow what they say.
He said Prophet Musa (Moses) and Issa (Jesus) talked about the coming of Muhammad in the Bible which has been in existence for centuries.
Muhammad tried to convince the Christian and Jewish tribes in his country that as well, and they did not buy it either so he killed them.
"Issa (Jesus) is mentioned in the Koran 25 times,
And yet he is not mentioned, by name, in the Torah (Old Testament). Maybe that is because it was written before he was born. Just as the New Testament was written before Satan revealed the Koran to the drunken child-molester Muhammad.
Musa (Moses) is mentioned 128 times, Mariam (Mary mother of Jesus) is mentioned 30 times. It is all glorifying and highly respectful. We cannot be Muslims unless we believe in Issa.
But you do not believe he was the Son of God or that he died on the cross so that we might all have eternal life.
We have to look for the Bible and Torah that were sent to Moses and Jesus, but where can you find them?
As I recall, Muhammad was ordered by Allah to maintain copies of both the Torah and the Bible, and keep them safe from any forgeries. Do you mean the Muslims disobeyed Allah and did not do that? The Koran confirmed the validity of the Bible ( 5:46, 2:40, 2:41, 12:111, 4:47, 6:92, 3:3, 35:31, 2:91, 3:113, 2:121, 2:41, 3:81), and it did NOT annul the Bible ( 2:40, 2:41, 2:91, 2:121, 2:213, 3:3, 3:81, 3:113, 4:47, 5:47, 6:90, 6:92, 6:154, 6:156), to the contrary (5:18, 2:136, 2:89).
Unfortunately, the holy book that was sent by Allah was written by mankind and forged," Col. Gadaffi, speaking through a translator said.

Weasel Zippers blogged I've heard Muslims claim the Bible contains prophecies about Mohammed (it does not), but this is the first time I've heard the claim the he is mentioned by name. The again it's coming for Moooaammaar so we already know it's a crock of shit.


Stained Blue Dress Day

Hillary Clinton authorized a large record release (“document dump”), 17,481 pages of her schedule as first lady, that she was certain would tie people up digging through them, and yet reveal nothing, because they just said who she was scheduled to meet with, not whether they actually met or what was discussed, and what, if anything, was done about what was discussed. But thanks to the hard work by Brian Ross and the ABC News Investigative Unit, we now know that Hillary Clinton spent the night in the White House on the day her husband had oral sex with Monica Lewinsky, and may have actually been in the White House when it happened, according to records of her schedule released today by the National Archives. She did not realize they would discover THAT.

Basic Greenhouse Equations "Totally Wrong"

DailyTech reported New derivation of equations governing the greenhouse effect reveals "runaway warming" impossible

Not just that we have more time than earlier predicted. Runaway "global warming" is impossible.
Miklós Zágoni isn't just a physicist and environmental researcher. He is also a global warming activist and Hungary's most outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocol. Or was. That was until he learned the details of a new theory of the greenhouse effect, one that not only gave far more accurate climate predictions here on Earth, but Mars too.
Both warmed by the same sun, and both experiencing warming the last few years. Those Martians need to join Kyoto.
The theory was developed by another Hungarian scientist, Ferenc Miskolczi, an atmospheric physicist with 30 years of experience and a former researcher with NASA's Langley Research Center.

After studying it, Zágoni stopped calling global warming a crisis, and has instead focused on presenting the new theory to other climatologists. The data fit extremely well. "I fell in love," he stated at the International Climate Change Conference this week.... NASA refused to release the results. Miskolczi believes their motivation is simple. "Money", he tells DailyTech.
Precisely. A lot of governments are willing to pour in a lot of money to try to prop up this false theory so that they can get more control of their own economies, and hopefully hurt the US's economy if we can be suckered into buying these lies.
Research that contradicts the view of an impending crisis jeopardizes funding, not only for his own atmosphere-monitoring project, but all climate-change research. Currently, funding for climate research tops $5 billion per year.


Hillary finally snaps

Hat tip Hot Air



CNS News reported At a gathering of liberal activists in Washington on Tuesday, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) was asked if he would commit to holding the Bush administration accountable once a Democrat is in the White House and illegal acts have been pinned on President Bush. "Yes, you have my word on that," Conyers replied. He then shook the questioner's hand as a sign of his commitment.

Conyers, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, told an audience at the liberal Take Back America Conference that he is wrestling with the idea of beginning impeachment proceedings against President Bush and Vice President Cheney, but he believes that such an effort might hamper Sen. Barack Obama's chance of winning the presidency.
It would.
However, Conyers guaranteed his liberal audience that he will pursue legal action against Bush after the November elections.
Once he is out of office, you can't impeach him, and Congress cannot "pursue legal action" against a private citizen. That would up to the Attorney General, and it would be tried in the court system, not the Democratically controlled Senate.
"There are those who said, if you elect Democrats to Congress, we will guarantee you two things: Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y) will become chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and he will raises taxes; and Conyers will become chairman of the Judiciary and he will impeach President George W. Bush," Conyers said. "You want to make them half right?"

Global Warming's Missing Heat

NPR reported Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years.
That could mean global warming has taken a breather.
But will the GW Hype take a breather?
... In fact, 80 percent to 90 percent of global warming involves heating up ocean waters. They hold much more heat than the atmosphere can.... "There has been a very slight cooling,
Not only has there been no warming, there has been a slight cooling? Sound the alert! Global Cooling (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here).
but not anything really significant," Willis says.... Trenberth and Willis agree that a few mild years have no effect on the long-term trend of global warming.
The hysteria will continue, and GQ skeptics will continue to be disparaged.
But they say there are still things to learn about how our planet copes with the heat.
What about the idea that maybe Global Warming is a big fraud.
Sweetness & Light blogged It never occurs to the writer that maybe the sea level hasn’t risen after all. That those numbers have been fueled by expectations, grant money and general hysteria. But this is your tax dollar at work, folks. Your hard earned money is being used illegally by NPR to propagandize you.

AJStrata blogged It is only a mystery to those wedded to the man-made global warming canard. To those of us who have noted failure after failure of doom & gloom predictions coming true and have been of the opinion this is one of a million natural cycles this planet has experienced this all makes sense. We are in or passing out of a warm period. The fact the waters are showing a cooling actually supports the theory we are headed for a sever down turn in global temperature due to low than normal solar/sunspot activity.

It's all the media's fault

AP reported Asked how she [Lynndie England] could blame the media for the controversy, she said it wasn't her who leaked the photos. "Yeah, I took the photos but I didn't make it worldwide. Yes, I was in five or six pictures and I took some pictures, and those pictures were shameful and degrading to the Iraqis and to our government," she said, according to the report.

And yourself?????
"And I feel sorry and wrong about what I did. But it would not have escalated to what it did all over the world if it wouldn't have been for someone leaking it to the media."
So what you did would not have been bad if someone had not leaked the potos to the press?
.... Asked by the magazine if what happened at Abu Ghraib was a scandal or something that happens during wartime, England said it was the latter. "I'm saying that what we did happens in war.
It shouldn't.
It just isn't documented,"
But you are the one that documented it.
she was quoted as saying. "If it had been broken by the news without the pictures it wouldn't have been that big."
And who took the pictures? Oh, yeah, you did.
She told the magazine that there are other photographs that have not been released that contain more graphic images than those that were seen on television, in newspapers and on the Internet.
Should they be? Would that then make your photos OK?


Interesting Posts from Sweetness & Light

Sweetness & Light presents two very interesting posts that summarize Black Liberation Theology, beginning with an article by Spengler from Asia Times on The peculiar theology of black liberation:

Senator Barack Obama is not a Muslim, contrary to invidious rumors. But he belongs to a Christian church whose doctrine casts Jesus Christ as a “black messiah” and blacks as “the chosen people”. At best, this is a radically different kind of Christianity than most Americans acknowledge; at worst it is an ethnocentric heresy.
and how Obama threw his grandmother under the bus to protect "Reverend" Wright with Wright Not Racist, But Grandma Is

Just words

Barack Obama's speech "A More Perfect Union" said Two hundred and twenty one years ago, in a hall that still stands across the street, a group of men gathered and, with these simple words, launched America's improbable experiment in democracy.

Actually they formed a republic, not a democracy.
Farmers and scholars; statesmen and patriots who had traveled across an ocean
Only eight of the 55 delegates were born elsewhere: four (Butler, Fitzsimons, McHenry, and Paterson) in Ireland, two (Davie and Robert Morris) in England, one (Wilson) in Scotland, and one (Hamilton) in
to escape tyranny and persecution finally made real their declaration of independence at a Philadelphia convention that lasted through the spring of 1787
The United States Declaration of Independence is an act of the Second Continental Congress, adopted on July 4, 1776. The Constitutional Convention began May 25, 1787 and ended September 17, 1787 - though Barry Obama says it ended in the spring of 1787.
.... I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes.
A couple of days ago you claimed you had never heard any of these things. Now you admit you did. Can we ever trust anything you say, or are you just another politician.
Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely – just as I’m sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed.
If I ever heard that many things I disagreed with, I would have found anther church. In fact I did hear my pastor saying some things that I did not believe were in the Bible, and I did some research and told my parents I planed to confront him with them next Sunday, and they told me I could not confront the pastor. As if he could not have handled a theological discussion with a teenager. I told them if I could not confront him, I was not going to go to church, but they said I had to go to some church, so I began attending the only other church in walking distance of my house, even though it was a different denomination.
... As such, Reverend Wright’s comments were not only wrong but divisive, divisive at a time when we need unity; racially charged at a time when we need to come together to solve a set of monumental problems – two wars, a terrorist threat, a falling economy, a chronic health care crisis and potentially devastating climate change; problems that are neither black or white or Latino or Asian, but rather problems that confront us all.
And you did not confront him on it until the media began running clips of his sermons, at which time your campaign website began a series of changes to make him disappear, and the Trinity United Church of Christ website began a similar effort to remove the most objectionable things from its website.
... Not once in my conversations with him have I heard him talk about any ethnic group in derogatory terms, or treat whites with whom he interacted with anything but courtesy and respect. He contains within him the contradictions – the good and the bad – of the community that he has served diligently for so many years. I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.
But I predict in a few more days of this bad publicity you will disown him.
I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother – a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.... We do not need to recite here the history of racial injustice in this country. But we do need to remind ourselves that so many of the disparities that exist in the African-American community today can be directly traced to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation that suffered under the brutal legacy of slavery and Jim Crow.... Legalized discrimination - where blacks were prevented, often through violence, from owning property, or loans were not granted to African-American business owners, or black homeowners could not access FHA mortgages, or blacks were excluded from unions, or the police force, or fire departments – meant that black families could not amass any meaningful wealth to bequeath to future generations. That history helps explain the wealth and income gap between black and white, and the concentrated pockets of poverty that persists in so many of today’s urban and rural communities.
As far as I know, Jim Crow laws have been removed from the books, red-lining now longer takes place (and white as well as blacks have signed stupid Sub Prime loans with increasing interest and balloon payments without reading what they were signing)

The Clinton Rules and The Obama Rules

Eriposte blogged onThe Left Coaster If Obama gets the nomination and loses, it will be the fault of Hillary and her supporters. If Hillary gets the nomination and loses, it will be the fault of Hillary and her supporters.

He then goes on to explain in detail how leftists treat the two campaigns differently. It is very interesting to see a leftist recognize the fact.

Rasmussen Reports

Rasmussen Reports Pastor Jeremiah Wright, who has become part of the national political dialogue in recent days, is viewed favorably by 8% of voters nationwide. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 58% have an unfavorable view of the Pastor whose controversial comments have created new challenges for Barack Obama’s Presidential campaign.
