what will this kind of war be like

if there is a war it will be different than any we have known i do not believe we can or will slaughter them all men women and children i believe it will be a war of geurilla fighters or ones who learn their language and infiltrate the terrorist camps spys if you will move in as part of them as many of them have done us i believe that is what pres Bush meant when he said it will be long and take patience how long did it take them to set up the attack of the eleventh years probably finding the ones who were capable of doing it training them and putting them in position we will be fighting factions of a country and extremists in it not the country if we attack their religeon then we had better level all the mosques here and there and set up concentration camps not as horible as the ones in germany but we did inter all of the japanese americans this is just my idea and i am open to others i just can't believe wholesale slaughter is the answer and killing one man will not stop them any more than killing st. peter stoped christianity and if their idea of god is the right one and i say if they will win no matter what we do if ours is the right idea we will win and there is no reason for excess fear

Re: Ted Nuget Letter--Long But Interesting


popular opinion or not i believe the same in fact my belief that the terrorist attack is gods call to america to repent i m not saying it happened because of the sins of the victims but because of the sins of the country legalised abortion unheard of when i was young homosexuals accepted i don't believe they should be prosecuted but neither do believe they should be accepted as if by breaking gods law nothing they do is wrong god judged Israel when they turned from him he judged sodom and Gomora and he will judge us we are not exempt from his rightous wrath Jerry falwell apologized for saying what he said was wrong i am not and have never been his admirer but i believe his retraction was what is wrong this country not the victims have sinned and wil pay the price i'm sure many will disagree with me and that is certainly your right but i believe what i believe

Re: Just so you know

yesterday one of the men in the offices was showing me how the new computers work every office and every nurses desk got new computers they had dell these are compaq i wonder what they will do with the old ones Beverly Enterprises must be doing ok they have over 400 homes all over the u.s. just think if they changed computers in every one of them he said all the computers in the building form a web but there are things he can't get on his the payroll and the patients trusts that is for the bookkeeping office and one front office where the girl takes care of your money how much you have several years ago my husband was a patient here and he and the administrater were really good friends because when he had been in the state hospital for alcoholism her mother had been his nurse his favorite once i asked her about having my own checking account she said Donna why did Bill have a seapeate checking account i guess he tattled on me but i really wasn't that bad just not too good one time in Columbia we had a patient who was a professor of math at the University of Mo. one time one of the girls asked him if he always kept his check book straight he said no she said he can abstract but he can't add and subtract oh well i don't need a check often and if i need something the girl in the front office takes it out of my account but they feed me too much i gain on the average two pounds a month that is 24 a tear and i'm only four nine if i could stand up well just so i don't get too wide for the wheelchair if i could just not eat breakfast but i don't have the will power got to have those eggs and oat meal they do serve a healthy diet the state dictates the menu and the recipes i have met the head the state dietician

Re: Still Got Your Tonsils?

a lot depends on the dr. i don't mean to acuse any dr. of malpractice but face it some are better than others and it is best to have them out as a child new anisthesias now with my first daughter they gave me cyclopropane and oxygen by a mask and had me count back wards i got to 97 but every surgery after that it has been a shot not too much difference as i said before i can't smell the gas at 3 i don't remember my throat being sore but i got ice cream it must not have been too bad or i would remember i do remember things that happened when i was 2 i had my daughter by c section just when they were saying the sooner patient gets up the better my it was a long way down the hall to that bathroom then i found out the nurse had meant to come back and help me but i managed

Re: ALL WOMEN UNITE ~ :)

i can't agree with that idea how can we plan to deliberately cause someone to commit a sin or what is a sin in their eyes even a terrorist all muslims are not terrorists


in response to this post
The President has asked that you unite for a common cause. Since the hard line Islamic people can not stand nudity, and consider it a sin to see a naked woman that is not their wife, tonight at 7:00, all women should run out of their house naked to help weed out the terrorists.

The United States appreciates your efforts, and applauds you.

God Bless America.

Re: Ever wanted to Drown ???
i have made several bad boo boos in my time probably the worst was when our hospital i worked at for 18 years first got computer at the nursing station we were mental heath attached only physically to the University of Missouri medical center about every three months we would get 6 to 7 fourth year medical student taking their psych block they always had a resident witth them to sign their orders etc that was one of the first things we did as we came on a shift was check all the charts to see if all the orders they wrote had been co signed ad taken off and sent to the pharmacy in the Med center so the patients would have the right medications for the next 24 hours one day was working evenings one of the boys an aide came up to me and said do you know anything about the new computer i said not a thing he said well lets see if we can turn it on so we tried but no luck the next morning the head nurse called me into her office and said Donna did you mess with the computer i said yes so and so and i tried to turn it on she said well you lost the records for all the students i was less than popular for awhile but it passed i'm a little scared of them ever since my daughter in indiana had friends that had been in the army with my son in law they lived in Vienna that time he worked with computers for a company in the states they left germany shortly after Mary and Jim did also settling in Indiana once they took me to their place for supper my daughter was working somewhere but supposed to come later he took me into the room with the computers said here i'll show you how to play a game i said aren't you afraid i'll break it he laughed and said what are you going to do take a baseball bat to it well i played the game only he turned it off and on and off for me

Re: the one Muslim i knew personaly

not all Musims are bad i knew a young student here in the University he said he had been a prisoner due for execution the next day but he prayed to Allah the same god and that evenng was released with a bunch of other prisioners he graduated with his doctorate in agriculture and was going home somewhere in the middle east to share his knowledge with his people of course his experience had strengthened his fate but he was against the radicals their god Allah is the same as our god the father but sadly though they believe Jesus was a great prophet they do not beieve he was god which they say he will deny when he returns they believe in one god but not the trinity and jesus said he must return to heaven so the comforter could come but sadly i have been in a chat room christian seniors where just one person who talks against the accuracy of the bible said he learned this in college from many professors one chater replied when she knew a professor who could walk on water raise the dead be crucified and raised on the third day then she might believe the professors his Nic is jesus the myth another told him to go on to the pagan chat room where they believe his master Satan is a myth which many of them do saying he is an invention of the judeo christain relegion and believe in him no more than we believe in Thor Woden or any of the other gods of mount olympus

Re a girl for christmas

have a great grandson but would really like to have a great grandaughter so much easier to buy pretty cloths unless she is like my daughter and doesn't like frills or like me and wants books instead of dolls if so will just have to find out what she likes anyway she probably won't read them until she is at least in the first grade

Re: HELP PLEASE

learn all you can does he have the type of diabetes that can be controled with diet and a pill or will he need insulin if so you will need to learn to monitor his insulin one or both of you will have to learn to draw it up and give it know what kind of needle you have and what kind of insulin you are using there is u20 u40 and u100 one time i caught my sister in law using u100 insulin with a u40 syringe not good one patient insisted on grabbing all the desserts she could and had already lost one leg another farm woman had been walking around the farm barefoot the bottom of her feet were a mess diabetes depresses the senses she didn't realise her feet were cut also be very careful cuting toenails or fingenails they wouldn't let us do it even as l.p.n. a wound on a diabetic is very hard to heal in fact almost impossible it can also lead to blindness but taken care of properly, it can be managed and does not really change your lifestyle eating there are many diaBETIC FOODS ON THE MARKET if you really want to cook for yourself learn the different sugars and their effects glucose is the culprit but then there is fructose dextrose and lactose it is not hard to learn and you have an incentive but enough i don't want to scare you alcohol i'm not sure but i think it is bad if he eats sweets be sure it is in moderation and i said learn to moniter from Donna SNEED L.P.N. retired and handicapped and i am sure there are R.N.S IN HE GROUP but taking classes at the local hospital is not a bad idea and stay in touch with your dr.
