HEART ATTACKS AND WATER

HEART ATTACKS AND WATER !
How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the ni…ght. Heart Attack and Water – I never knew all of this ! Interesting……. Something else I didn’t know … I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor – Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement! I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water… Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body 2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion 1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure 1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack I can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame. 1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system. 2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar). Please read on… Something that we can do to help ourselves – nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets. Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It’s about Heart Attacks. There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently. Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards: – Call 911. – Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say “heart attack!” – Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and …DO NOT LIE DOWN!

Social Security information

History Lesson on Your Social Security Card
  
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and
card were not to be used for identification purposes.
Since nearly everyone in the
United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the
message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION,was removed.

 

An old Social Security card with the “NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION”message.

Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be
Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program
,

Now 7.65%
on the first $90,000

3.) That the money the participants elected to put
into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

4.) That the money the participants put into the
independent ‘Trust Fund’
rather than into the
general operating fund, and therefore, would
only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other
Government program, and,

Under Johnson the money was moved to
The General Fund and Spent

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed
as income.

Under Clinton & Gore
Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are
now receiving a Social Security check every month —
and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of
the money we paidto the Federal government to ‘put
away’ — you may be interested in the following:

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —-

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the
independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the
general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically
controlled House and Senate.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —–

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gorecasting the
‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote
as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the  US

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— –

Q: Which Political Party decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants?

AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That’s right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.  
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65,
began to receive Social Security payments! The
Democratic Party gave these payments to them,
even though they never paid a dime into it!

———— — ———— ——— —– ———— ——— ———

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA),
the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want
to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!
If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
evolve.

But it’s worth a try.

How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers

 

A new tax on home sales

Received this in an e-mail and just passing it on!

Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay

a 3.8% sales tax on it?  That’s $3,800 on a $100,000 home etc. 

When did this happen?  It’s in the health care bill.  Just thought

you should know.

 

SALES TAX TO GO INTO EFFECT 2013 (Part of HC Bill)  Why

2013?  Could it be to come to light AFTER the 2012 elections?

 

REAL ESTATE SALES TAX

 

So, this is “change you can believe in”?  Under the new health

care bill – did you know that all real estate transactions will be

subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax?  The bulk of these new taxes don’t

kick in until 2013 If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be

a $15,200 tax.  This bill is set to screw the retiring generation

who often downsize their homes.  Does this stuff make your

November and 2012 vote more important? 

 

Oh, you weren’t aware this was in the obamacare bill?  Guess

what, you aren’t alone.  There are more than a few members of

Congress that aren’t aware of it either.

 

 

I hope you forward this to every single person in your address

book.  VOTERS NEED TO KNOW.

 

So much for the promise that “we are not going to raise taxes,

not one thin dime, for anyone making under $250,000 per year.”

IF this is incorrect, someone please enlighten me!

—– comparable to England or Canada .

—– learn to accept the inconveniences of old age.”

—– SHIP HIS ASS TO CANADA OR ENGLAND !

—– He is “elderly” himself but be sure to remember his health
insurance is
—– different from yours as Congress has their own high-end coverage!
He
—– will never have to learn to accept “inconveniences”!!!

—– AND THE WINNER IS VERY INTERESTING!

—– The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in
the
—– private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
You
—– know what the private business sector is… a real life business,
not a
—– government job. Here are the percentages.

—– T. Roosevelt…….. 38%
—– Taft………………….. 40%
—– Wilson ……………… 52%
—– Harding…………….. 49%
—– Coolidge……………. 48%
—– Hoover ……………… 42%

—– how to run their business? They know what’s best for GM…
Chrysler…
—– Wall Street… and you and me?

—– How can the president of a major nation and society… the one
with the
—– most successful economic system in world history… stand and talk
—– about business when he’s never worked for one?… or about jobs
when he
—– has never really had one??! And neither has 92% of his senior
staff and
—– closest advisers! They’ve spent most of their time in academia,
—– government and/or non-profit jobs… or as “community organizers”
when
—– they should have been in an employment line.

Government track record

What makes the government think they are going to get healthcare right?
Here are some of their past records.

The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775.
The government had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935.
The government had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938.
The government had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

War on Poverty started in 1964.
The government had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is spent each year and transferred to “the poor”and there are still poor.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965.
The government had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970.
The government had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.

Fifty years ago we had the best schools in the world, and now with a Department of Education, we are 16th and falling.

Amtrak operates in the red year after year.

The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on
 foreign oil.  It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24
 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before.  The government had 32 years  to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

No wonder the takeover of healthcare has polarized America so much.

The American Dream is Dead

March 22, 2010 in front of my eyes I saw the American dream killed. My respect for the presidency and the president has disappeared. We now are a dictatorship is disguise as a republic. My respect for the Senate and the House has also disappeared. For over a year this Congress has bought, bribed and corrupted the entire system of legislation. Contrary to public opinion this Congress passed a piece of legislation that satisfies special agendas and shredded the Constitution for selfish power hungry progressives. It took the progressives close to a hundred years to kill the American dream. Now they have succeeded.

America is no longer the beacon of freedom and liberty in the world. America used to be above other countries. Now we are no better than China, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba or Iran. I have lost all respect for our government and the direction this country is going. All the lives lost defending this country in the past has suddenly become wasted.

Now you can feed me, cloth me, keep me warm and when you decide it is time for me to go, kill me.
