Sometimes those who try and pull rank get their come-uppance.
One foggy night, a United States Aircraft Carrier was cruising off the coast of Newfoundland and the junior radar operator spotted a light in the gloom. Here is a transcript of what happened next.
The radar operator worked out that a collision was likely unless the other vessel changed course. So he sent a radio message.
U.S. Aircraft Carrier Radar Officer:
Please divert your course at least 7 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.
Back came the reply you must be joking, I recommend you divert your course instead.
The U.S. Radar Officer referred the matter to his superior officer. And reported the incident as subordination.
As a result the Captain of the Air Craft Carrier sent a second message. I believe that I out rank you, and am giving you a direct order to divert your course now!!!
Canadian Radio Operator: This is a lighthouse. I suggest you take evasive action.
I know this is in the USA but it is happening here in our country too. Now this exactly proves what I been saying. First support the big banks then get on this environmental thing which are both connected. Pretty soon you will be working strictly for the governments. Oh forgot, guess we are now. Sorry about that.

Obama planned to make the case Monday for a budget proposal that invests billions in research designed to reduce climate change and guarantees loans for companies that develop clean energy technologies. Obama has tied his first budget proposal as president to a renewable energy program to help the United States move toward energy independence.
Kind of figured this is what happened. Sure glad I am not on any cholesterol med. I tried it once for a month then decided against it. This was around twenty years ago. Guess I had a weak moment but soon got back on track and went by my instinct. Take a look at this article. My opinion only.
People with high cholesterol live the longest. This statement seems so incredible that it takes a long time to clear one´s brainwashed mind to fully understand its importance. Yet the fact that people with high cholesterol live the longest emerges clearly from many scientific papers. Consider the finding of Dr. Harlan Krumholz of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University, who reported in 1994 that old people with low cholesterol died twice as often from a heart attack as did old people with a high cholesterol.1 Supporters of the cholesterol campaign consistently ignore his observation, or consider it as a rare exception, produced by chance among a huge number of studies finding the opposite.
But it is not an exception; there are now a large number of findings that contradict the lipid hypothesis. To be more specific, most studies of old people have shown that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for coronary heart disease. This was the result of my search in the Medline database for studies addressing that question.2 Eleven studies of old people came up with that result, and a further seven studies found that high cholesterol did not predict all-cause mortality either.
Now consider that more than 90 % of all cardiovascular disease is seen in people above age 60 also and that almost all studies have found that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women.2 This means that high cholesterol is only a risk factor for less than 5 % of those who die from a heart attack.
But there is more comfort for those who have high cholesterol; six of the studies found that total mortality was inversely associated with either total or LDL-cholesterol, or both. This means that it is actually much better to have high than to have low cholesterol if you want to live to be very old.
First off I am against any X Rays if they are not really proven necessary. I feel there is to many folks now being subjected to radiation for no reason. Just wished i knew back then what I know now as every X Ray that I have had through out my life would have never been done on me. I would have said no back then as I do today. Take a look at this article. My Opinion Only
The use of MRIs, X-rays or CT scans provides no benefit in diagnosing patients with routine back pain, according to a new study conducted by researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University and published in the journal Lancet.
