The average person doesn’t know that poultry sits in a fecal bath for 30-60 minutes when it comes down the production line. This is caused by workers on the line who are inexperienced and cut open part of the digestive system prior to removing the entire thing. Salmonella coats the entire bird while it is being ‘washed.’

Due to dirty conditions at feed lots, where cattle are taken to fatten up for the kill, the animals remain in a pen too tight to turn around in or even lie down. There they stay for up to six weeks, with their feces stacking up to their bellies. Besides being filthy, these animals are being tortured before they are butchered.

I suggest soaking poultry, red meat and pork in a bath of water, plus one-fourth-cup of vinegar. This will help kill germs and tenderize the meat at the same time. Adding salt to the bath will also help tenderize.

Rinse the meat well, then season and prepare as usual. Vinegar helps pull any remaining blood out of the cut of meat. Blood may be the life of the animal and add flavor, but it also harbors pathogens.

Always assume that meat is dirty with the bacteria for food poisoning. Cut way down on consumption of red meat and try using it just for flavoring a meal instead of making it the main course. An example would be chili with beans. Use about one-half pound of extra-lean chuck or sirloin for the chili.

Consumers must take steps to keep themselves safe. There is no point waiting for legislature to pass a bill making slaughter houses clean up. They donate too much money to the democratic political machine.


Desperate People

Everywhere you look, there are desperate people. You can see it in their faces and hear it in their voices. Desperate to earn a living, to send their kids to school, to pay the rent or the doctor bills. No jobs in America. You know it is bad when illegals decide to go home.

I hear tales of robbery in broad daylight in communities around the nation. This will get increasingly worse as time goes on. People have tried most everything to earn a paycheck. I know of people who are endorsing products they would never buy for their own families because they know the products are worthless.

I don’t think Americans have any real clue as to what hard times really are. Children today can’t imagine life without all the luxuries they enjoy. They think they have a right to these things. If we look at all things God told us not to do and compare this with what America not only allows, but endorses and encourages, it is no mystery why things are falling apart at the seams.

Sinkholes are appearing everywhere. Do you think fracking has anything to do with these giant holes? Man can only do so much to the earth before there are grave consequences. I don’t believe man has affected the weather to the degree that some are trying to sell us on, but we haven’t done the earth much good, either.

If you look for them on Facebook, twitter, blogs and in the marketplace, you can find desperate people. They try to be discreet, but you can see the beginning of panic in the requests they make or the things they post. It breaks your heart to see it.

No one knows how much pain we must endure in the coming years, but one thing holds steady. God said not to fear. If we believe and faint not, he will bring us safely to the other side. The key is to know that you know, that you know God has the answer to all of your problems. There is no room for doubt.

Imagine how God feels when you wring your hands in fear and doubt about how to pay the bills when he has told you he would provide for all your needs?  You might as well say to God, “I know you have the power God, but I still don’t believe you will do what you say you will do.” It isn’t about deserving something. You feed your children whether they have obeyed you or not. You provide them with warmth, comfort, love and security. God wants to do this for all of us. There is only one requirement, we have to believe. We have to go to the bank to deposit the check that we don’t have in our hands yet, but knowing God will provide it.

Some desperate people you just can’t help. They refuse to believe. For those who do, remind them of the love of God. Take that look of desperation off the faces of those you care about. Let them know there is a way to survive the chaos.








If it ain’t broke, break it

Have you ever gone to a doctor for a specific reason and left with appointments at the hospital for tests and visits with other specialists? If you have, then you know what I’ve just gone through. Only, it isn’t over yet.

I knew my thyroid had stopped working because I had all the common symptoms. So, I made an appointment with my doctor – a person I love dearly – and told her all about my symptoms. She agreed that it was likely my thyroid, but wanted me to have tests at the local hospital and to see a cardiologist.

I hate, hate, hate going to the hospital. I have never been inside one that I did not pick up a germ and get sick. Anyway, I was a good patient and had a brain scan, after all, someone who has headaches needs a brain scan to be sure there is no tumor lurking around. I had my chest x-rayed just because, I guess. Then, I had nuclear dye shot through my veins to have my gall bladder checked. This took about 90 minutes.

After I had my gall bladder checked, I went home. There is when I got truly sick. I pooped that dye for a continuous 38 hours, non-stop. No sleep and a headache so bad that I feared my head would explode. Wait a minute, didn’t I tell the doctor that I was having severe headaches?  What is up with this? I’m not getting better, I’m getting worse.

Back to the doctor for immediate relief from the diarrhea and headache. More medicine to take and a suggestion that I check in to the hospital. No way! I’m not going back by the way that I came. I may be slow, but I ain’t stupid. No, I said. That is where the germs are.

Blood test came back and sure enough, my thyroid had stopped working. Another pill I have to take for life. Why didn’t we just wait for the blood test to come back, which explained all my symptoms in the first place? Why all the tests and other doctors (who will surely put me through hell). There is a stress test coming up and another one I can’t even spell.

I just needed one little pill, why are they trying to kill me? By the time they all finish, I will need a week in bed to get over being cured. Really, I was so sick, I couldn’t drive myself to the doctor today. Turns out, I had a reaction to the dye and a severe sinus infection.

If it ain’t broke, they will break it so they have something to fix. I remember old timers who said they never went to see a doctor because sick people went there to spread their germs. They lived to be 100. I won’t make it to my next birthday.

They have my hair falling out, headaches so bad I can’t see, put poison into my veins, x-rayed my brain and gall bladder, caused severe diarrhea, and I am so weak from lack of food. All I wanted was my thyroid checked. If we had just waited a day or two, I wouldn’t have had to go through this misery.

I pray for the day we can tell doctors what is wrong with our bodies and tell them what medicine we need. Wouldn’t that be much easier? Help me pray, friends, before they kill me. I think this is Obamacare‘s way of weeding out the weak and feeble. Kill us all off and save money.

If you have to see a doctor, let me know. I will pray for you. You are going to need them.

Dark Clouds on the Horizon

Dark clouds on the horizon,

a gloomy day ahead;

There’s no use in getting up.

I think I’ll stay in bed.

No coffee for this morning.

I did not plan ahead.

The day seems more depressive,

so, I think I’ll stay in bed.

The rain has started falling.

It’s lulling me to sleep.

I can’t seem to fight it,

so, I’ll just go back to sleep.

Some days, it doesn’t pay you

to even pull the covers back.

You stick your head beneath them

and let others pick up the slack.

I composed this poem one day while driving home from town. The sky was black and my mood wasn’t much lighter. After I put the poem to paper, I realized that the Republican party was doing just what the poem said. A black cloud has hung over this nation for five years. Instead of taking action to make our situation better, our leaders have pulled the covers over their heads, settled back into bed and decided there just wasn’t any good enough reason to get up and make an effort.

Well, the slack has come due and there are no others to pick it up. So, dear friends, the storm is coming. Each will have to decide what to do and where to go when this storm of eternity breaks loose and rains down upon us. There will be confusion. Evil will prevail for a period of time.

I don’t know what you have planned, but I am headed to a spot beneath the wings that God will spread as a cover for his little children. You are welcome to stand beside me under cover of God’s grace. Together, we will listen to the storm. I’ll help pass around the cups of hot tea with cream and honey. We will all huddle together for warmth, sip a little tea and watch the poor souls who listened to Obama scramble to and fro.

We will feel tremendous sorrow that they listened to the great deceiver, but there will be nothing we can do to help at that point. I will not allow their misery to take from me the joy I will experience in the comfort of His sheltering arms.

Do you know where you will be when the storm clouds rise? I hope so, because you don’t have much time left to decide.
