Indiana coach Tom Crean Says Kentucky Doesn’t Want to Play the Hoosiers in Indiana

Tom Crean quote:

"The Kentucky game is still being talked about, but it's not set in stone because, as many of you know, Kentucky doesn't want to play on our campus anymore and that's certainly not our first choice," Crean said. "Keeping it on campus is without a doubt our first choice and always has been since I've been here."

Bill Clinton and Barack Obama funny picture

Secret Service - Wild Bill for America

Check out the video.
Wild Bill talks about the Secret Service from Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama. He doesn't name his sources so take it for what it is worth. 

In summary, he says that Barack Obama is the sneakiest president ever. Michelle Obama is a hardcore racist who hates white people.

Rattlesnake Bite - Graphic

For the squeamish, the photos of the surgical repairs below the text are pretty gruesome, but worth viewing

The camp director had previously called the hospital and a helicopter was waiting at the trail head. During the 30 minute helicopter ride I was going in and out of consciousness, having trouble keeping my eyes open. 

We arrived at the Modesto hospital, where the doctor in the emergency room decided that my case was too severe to treat at that medical center. He told me this, which was the last thing I heard before going unconscious. 

Although I was unconscious for approximately the next 24 hours, I have heard about the following events from my parents. 

I was taken from the Modesto hospital to the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento , the trauma center for Northern California. My snake bite was determined to be too severe for Modesto to deal with. At the UC Davis hospital I underwent a fasciotomy, which involved the doctors cutting open my arm from the palm up to about the middle of my biceps. This was to relieve the extreme pressure that had built up in my arm from the rattlesnake venom, making my arm as hard as a rock until the fasciotomy. 

I spent the next 35 days in the UC Davis hospital, had eight surgeries performed for cleaning out the dead tissue from my arm, and finally had a skin graft from my leg to close up my arm, which had remained open for 30 days after the fasciotomy until the skin graft surgery. That is 10 surgeries in total at UC Davis. 

I was released from the hospital on August 24, had four months of intense physical therapy, and flew to Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina for a follow-up surgery. This was a vascular flap surgery, during which they took a chunk of skin and muscle from my back, attached its blood vessels to the ones in my arm using microsurgery, and then stitched it to my arm. Although 2 emergency surgeries were required within 24 hours on account of blood loss, the vascular flap was a success, and after six more months of physical therapy, my hand had a significant improvement in mobility from when I left UC Davis and could move each finger only 2-3 millimeters.

My hand now has fully mobility and is about 80% as strong as it was before, thanks to my Dad and I resuming our rock climbing after a one year break due to the lack of strength in my left hand. I use it for about 90% of the things I used to do with my left hand (I am right handed). 13 surgeries, $700,000 worth of helicopter flights, surgeries, and hospital stays (paid by my insurance), and 20 months later, I am very happy with the outcome of this experience and my good fortune of getting through all this without any significant loss.

 This is the reason you never want to be bitten by a rattlesnake

Barack Obama Family Pictures

Barack Obama's grandmother, Sarah Hussein Onyango Obama

Barack Obama's uncle was a prisoner in his own home, trapped by post election violence that has left more than 600 Kenyans dead. Thought that when Barack Obama was elected, he would improve relations between Africa and America because 'he had his roots in Africa ', his uncle said.

Barack has stated his support for Luo Raila Odinga (Opposition Leader in
Kenya who signed a 'Shariah pact' with Muslims and claims to be Obama's
cousin) and is married to Ida Odinga. They have four children - two sons and
two daughters. His oldest son, Fidel, is named after Fidel Castro.

Barack's father, Muslim, hard-drinker, was married three times, attended
Harvard and returned to Kenya . Obama claims his father was an atheist, but, he was raised Muslim and was given a Muslim burial at Barack's family's request.

With mother Stanley Ann Dunham. In his own autobiography Obama writes, 'How and when the marriage occurred remains a bit murky, a bill of particulars that I have never quite had the courage to explore.'
(His father was still married to his first wife Kezia in Kenya at the time.)

Abandoned by his father and shipped off by his mother to his white grandparents, Barry Sotero becomes Barack Hussein Obama. Obama would describe his grandparents (the ones who did not abandon him) as 'white folk".

Barack stands behind Kezia (stepmother) in a Kenyan family shot, including brother Abongo ' Roy ' Obama, a Luo activist and a 'Militant Muslim' who argues that the black man must 'liberate
himself from the poisoning influences of European culture".

'Abongo's new lifestyle has left him lean and clear-eyed, and at the 
wedding, he looked so dignified in his black African gown with white trim and matching cap, that some of our guests mistook him for my father,' Obama wrote in "Dreams From My Father".

Dr. Lou Holtz - Two Ears and One Mouth

You have eyes on the front of your head rather than the back so you can see where you are going rather than where you've been.

Everyone, but especially everyone under the age of 40, needs to do twice as much listening as talking. Our creator did not make a mistake giving us two eyes, two nostrils, two hands, two ears and one mouth.

You get farther in life observing than you do offering observations.
