This one brings back memories...

10/4/08 02:41 am - Just a rough draft at the moment...

I'm just saving this for my own benefit.  If you have anything of value to ass, please do in a comment.  Keep in mind that while this is addressed to Mr. Obama, I will also be sending this to Mr. McCain.  Any input is welcomed.



Dear Mr. Obama,

I'm writing a bit out of desperation and a bit out of hope. I've seen your commercials and I've read your plans for the future should you be elected president of these United States. I'd also like to tell you that I've contacted your opponent with the same questions.

I'm sure you receive numerous e-mails and letters from people who are frightened about the economic crisis we now face. While this e-mail has been brought about due to the current circumstance, it is my sincere hope that you will find and read this not only as another e-mail from someone who is experiencing problems, but from someone who has put her family and well being on the line in an effort to help others. Granted, I have not served in an of our armed forces (though I do have plenty of family members and friends who have), nor have I been able to contribute much to any campaign or anything of the like. I am, however, a women who has dedicated her life to attempted to help others in emergent situations. By that, I mean that for the last four years, I have dedicated my life and made it my career to help others in emergencies. I am an Emergency Medical Dispatcher. Not as glamorous as being an EMT or Paramedic, but I do contribute to making sure that people get the help they need in as timely a fashion as I can provide.

Was this something I dreamed about doing since I was a child? No. For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a Broadway star. Bringing music, comedy, drama, an escape... Anything the American public wished to take from a performance, that is what I wanted to give. I still do. I'm relatively sure that i always will. However, given my past and current circumstance, I have found myself in the world of emergency medicine. It's an awesome profession, I assure you, however I have long since discovered that it is also a destitute profession. I'm not sure if you've been able to familiarize yourself with EMS, but I am pretty confident when I assume that you and your counterparts are not familiar with the current pay scale. Emergency services provide life saving efforts on a daily basis to every day citizens. I'm sure that you are familiar with such services, if not personally, that either through a friend or family member. And if somehow emergency services have failed to touch you through friends or family (which I pray is a continued experience, or, in the very least,a positive experience if you HAVE dealt with EMS) I hope that you have heard of positive (and negative)experiences. What I'm trying to get at is that I KNOW at some point, you've heard of or experienced an emergent response.

Now that I have established my profession and that of many of my friends and family, my ultimate goal is helping you to see just how hard being an emergency worker is. Yes, regardless of how much we are paid, we will help you and anyone who is in need of help. If that were in question, I would not be writing this. My main issue has to due with the rate of pay that is extended through out these United States for such a pertinent and valuable service.

(ok, just so anyone who reads this knows, I stopped where I did cuzz I've been drinking and don't trust myself to write with any grace from this point foreword.  Yes, there are typos, which I am hoping people will see and correct for me.  My point isclear, I hope.  Yes, I am in need of money to help my family, but if I can't earn it myself, I know I will ocercome.  This is my attempt to help BOTH candidates see that SOMETHING needs to change for EMS. Paramedics do as much as any doctor, but are not licensed as such.  What they do in the field {car accidents, etc} is unparrelled, yet most recieve just over minimum wage.  See what I mean?  Again, comments and critisim are welcome.)

For those who don't follow the Oh No They Didn't community like I do, I present John Stewart and "R.Kelly" discussing Sen. Craig.

Is very funny.

Paramedic Killed While En Route To Hospital In Maine

And this is why people need to fucking pay attention when they hear sirens or see lights flashing. It's not that fucking hard to pull over to the side of the road to let emergency crews pass or to stop at a green light in order to let emergency crews through. There is no reason that this man should have lost his life.

Wake the fuck up and pay attention when you're driving!

Weird things happen to me A LOT
It's true. Something weird will happen to me or to someone I'm very close to at LEAST once a week. This is, by far, one of the weirdest things I've had happen.

So, I'm sitting on the couch, playing Zelda cuzz it has become my crack. My phone rang. I looked at the front and noticed it was an 800 number. Since it's after 9PM, I knew it couldn't be a bill collector or anything like that, so I figured it might be someone I know calling me with a calling card or something. My gramma does that sometimes, so it's not unheard of.

I answer the phone and it's obviously a recording. I caught it mid-sentence. The dude was saying something about how he thought that I worked too hard and that I needed a break.

Uh... Yeah, I do kinda need a break, but how the fuck does this recording know that?

As I continue to listen, Mr. Recording Dude tells me that he hears I am a doctor. He likes that. He tells me he's going to get his stethescope. Then he starts talking all seductive, telling me that I work too hard and that he knows an isolated island in the Bahamas and that I will have servants and he'll be there, waiting to massage me and check me out with his stethescope, so I don't have to be the doctor for once. He told me that he couldn't wait to see me naked in the sun.

HAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

I seriously think I was just prank called by a phone sex recording. He was going into details when I hung up the phone.

Weird, huh?



Can't.Stop.Giggling.



Back to Zelda.

Make procreation a requirement for marriage

I think this is a pretty interesting attempt to get a point across.



Still no word on my uncle. I'm hoping to hear that they're transferring him down here soon. Covenant obviously doesn't have their priorities in order. To tell a family that they would have to wait due to other situation being more emergent is bullshit when the patient in question was in such bad condition that they needed to be FLOWN IN BY HELICOPTER. You don't just get to say "Hmm... I think I may have stubbed my toe, I need a helicopter to take me to the hospital." Ugh. Hospitals piss me off so much sometimes.

I honestly didn't think they'd kill him so quickly. I mean, they were given 30 days to execute him. The conspiracy theorist in me is thinking it's all just a little too convient. Like they're saying the killed him, but are actually hiding him. The rest of me is thinking they just wanted it done and over with after all the years of bullshit he put his country through.

Either way, I hope the families of all the people he killed are able to find peace now.

Is it bad that I want to see video footage of this?

WOW. If you can do it, go shopping at Sears for Bhristamas gifts or whatever you happen to need that you can get there. Check out what they're doing for Reservists who get called to war. How awesome is that?! I'll be doing my best to shop there so they can keep this up.
