How Much Can My Heart Hold


How much can my heart hold,
Until my blood runs cold?
Fills my heart with sadness,
How can I stop all the madness.
I’m not gonna bend
I’m not gonna break.
Longer I’m here, later I’ll fold.
I’m gonna forget I’m getting old.
I’m gonna live forever.
Love you forever.
Kiss the cross,
On a mountain high.
Cross bridges,
Climb ridges.
Never rest until I’m on top!
And the sun sets before me.
How much can my heart hold,
Until my blood runs cold?
Breaks my heart,
Why we are apart.
I will pick up the pieces.
For all the Theresa’s (sic).
I’m gonna live forever.
Love you forever.
Kiss the cross,
On a mountain high.
Cross bridges,
Climb ridges.
Never rest until I’m on top!
And the sun sets before me.
How much can my heart hold,
Until my blood runs cold?
Fills my heart with sadness,
How can I stop all the madness.
I’m not gonna bend
I’m not gonna break.
Longer I’m here, later I’ll fold.
Never too late, to break the mold.

 

 

 

 

 

The Forgotten Patient- Powerful, Patient, Not Forgotten

Kris Held, MD for President!

krisheldmd

Reality check- the Democrats are pursuing single payer government run socialized medicine and proposed the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act (H.R.676 introduced in the House 01/24/2017 by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D- MI- 13)). Ironically, the Republicans won control of the White House and maintain control of House and Senate, largely on campaign promises to repeal and replace Obamacare, but have all but reneged on their vows, in effect, spitting on the Constitution and those who elected them.

I am a physician and patient who read and understands the healthcare laws, most notably the paradoxically named and failing Affordable Care Act and the totalitarian-style Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), that was appallingly sponsored and continues to be supported by Representative Michael Burgess, M.D. (R-TX- 26). Over the last 8 years, I traveled to the Swamp too numerous to count times and engaged with physicians, patients, economists, and…

In Life, the Most Important Decisions Are Made Alone. No More.

It’s easier to make the tough decisions if you know someone has your back. Loyalty is earned, not deserved.

We are experience!

My experience from a flailing and fledgling salesperson to the owner and CEO of a successful software company, the most important decisions you make, you make alone.

I’m not a life coach.  I’m not a marketing guru. I’m not a motivational speaker or social media guru.

I have nothing to gain by sharing my personal experiences, so I will spare you any hype. I just want to reinforce my own beliefs, that people can make a difference, if they are willing to open their minds and hearts, without prejudice.

Whether you are a family man or woman, a CEO of a multi-billion dollar corporation, if people depend on you for guidance, you are held accountable for the success or failure of others.  Therefore, you have to make decisions that affect other people for better or for worse. That is my definition of a leader, plain and simple.  You don’t have to be Bill Gates to shine or suck. Worse, you probably have less to gain by making the tough decisions, at least from a monetary perspective.

Others will pontificate as to what a leader is, what a leader must do and how a leader must act.  I don’t have time for all that and if you’re like me, neither do you.  The best way to describe how to deal with your life’s biggest challenges is to rely on your past experiences and your gut. Do something!

When it comes to crunch time, a leader must decide on their own and act accordingly.  You’ll no doubt, get plenty of advice, but no one is going to know better than you, what to do.  So there is nowhere to turn.  Ultimately you are the most qualified to make a decision that affects you and your loved ones.

You must make the most important decisions in your life, and make those decisions on your own.  Sorry Doctor Phil.  This isn’t a TV show.  This is real life.  The same holds true in business.

When the time comes no one wants to make the important decisions for you.  Don’t get me wrong.  You will get plenty of advice.  “If I were you…” “You should…”  “You could…” “You might…” Later on, after the decision has been made, you will summarily receive the same words, only in different context.  “If it were me…” “I would have…”  I could have…”  “I would have…

I am sure you have heard these expressions as well, “It is lonely at the top.”  It matters less your stature in life.  It matter most, the decisions you make based on the challenges you face.  Trust me, from a person of experience, the most difficult decisions you have ever made and the most important decisions you will ever make, will be your decisions alone.

We are experience.  Small business owners are the lifeblood of free enterprise. Their heart is still beating.  Their soul is intact.  They epitomize what comprises the backbone of our country.  They are the chief cook and bottle washers; the real risk takers.  Small business owners are essential to the future success of the US economy. 

Small business owners are the spine that stands up and remains strong in the face of diversity, against ever increasing government regulations, against subsidies to big union, subsidies to big businesses and big government.  Small businesses must prevail if we are to remain strong and maintain our leadership position in the world economy. 

We need to lift our voice above the fray.  We need to unite. We need to be heard, above the voices of the mainstream media, the politicians, above the voices of divisiveness and hate, above the voices of fear and doubt. It is time to come together.  The future is now.  The future is no longer an individual choice and your choice alone.  We need to unite. Let’s make some noise.  Let’s take a stand.  What are you doing to preserve the American dream?  Email me: ideacapiltalists@gmail.com

 

 

Are You Sick of the pundits, media, politicians and celebs decrying the decision by the US to refuse to participate in the Paris Accord?

I’m sick of the pundits, media, politicians and celebs decrying the decision by the US to refuse to participate in the Paris Accord. This article is for real. This isn’t about Trump. This is about our tax dollars. Our tax dollars, billions, are being spent on big business, like GE, celebs like DiCaprio, and politicians, like Al Gore, who are making millions, if not billions on the money side of CO2, not on those who need it. What you aren’t going to read or hear from the alphabet soup of mainstream media outlets, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and yes FOX, is the reality of climate change. Bjorn Lomberg is the real deal, article below. He cares about the environment and wants the big bucks to go towards helping the world’s poor population. I’ve been following Lomberg for years. Granted, he too has an economic interest. The bottom line is the tax dollars, our tax dollars, money andl politics, not mutually exclusive, are driving the narrative. All you have to do is follow the money, one boondoggle after the next. Billions upon billions of government subsidies pocketed by crony capitalists. I stopped counting in 2014, the green technology companies who took millions in government subsidies and filed bankruptcy protection, a.ka., crooks that kept the money, most with no plan to succeed,  the only plan was to get rich off the government. I’m happy to supply the list.

U. S. BOEM Releases Highest-Resolution Bathymetry Map of the Gulf of Mexico… Evah!

Great read. Great info!

Watts Up With That?

A 1.4-Billion-Pixel Map of the Gulf of Mexico Seafloor

The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management releases the highest-resolution bathymetry map of the region to date.

By K. V. Kramer and W. W. Shedd 24 May 2017

The geology of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) is dynamic, driven not by plate tectonics but by the movement of subsurface bodies of salt. Salt deposits, a remnant of an ocean that existed some 200 million years ago, behave in a certain way when overlain by heavy sediments. They compact, deform, squeeze into…

Florida Senate to vote on INCREASING DAMAGES in Tort Cases

TAKE ACTION ON SMALL BUSINESS ISSUES IN FLORIDA. Be the voice of small business and make your voice heard with your elected officials in the Florida legislature.

Tomorrow, the Florida Senate Rules Committee is set to vote on SB 334, related to prejudgment interest.  The State Senator where your business is located sits on the Rules Committee and is expected to vote on this critical small business issue tomorrow.

SB 334 allows interest to be charged on damages, attorneys’ fees, and court costs from the date the injury or tort occurred, not from the date the damages were awarded. Delays in the legal system, which might not be due to the defendant, will only further drive up the cost of personal injury lawsuits against small businesses. This will cause more companies to be forced to settle to avoid increased legal costs as a result of additional interest. .

This legislation is bad for Florida’s businesses because the bill:
•           Increases the cost of personal injury lawsuits, which is already a significant cost to small businesses, by charging interest before a legal decision has been rendered.
•           Forces more companies to settle, despite the merit of the claim, to avoid paying interest for ongoing litigation.

Vote NO on Senate Bill 334.

 

Urgent Letter to Members of Congress to Implore Them To Reject RINOCARE/Obamacare 2.0.

Dr. Kris Held has the absolute best perspective regarding Big Insurance, Obamacare and now Republican Care. She is both a physician and a patient. She is not a politician. She is not a lobbyist. She does not belong to any special interest groups. She has invested the time to understand the healthcare laws past, present and to come. Please listen to her! Unlike many politicians, she knows what she is talking about.

I will be sending this to Members of Congress tomorrow. Please call or write members of Congress ASAP.

March 21, 2017

Dear Congressman/Congresswoman,

You were elected on a promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. If you vote “yes” on the GOP healthcare bill Thursday, you will fail to uphold your promise. I have read the bill word for word. Have you read it? I have also read the ACA, MACRA, the MACRA rules, and much more healthcare law ad nauseum word for word. Have you? The AHCA makes horrible things worse. I pray you will stand up for what is right and for what you promised, instead of acquiescing to pressure from those who represent selfish interests against the will of the American people. The bill is clearly written to appease, if not reward, big healthcare insurance executives, big hospital interests, and the Left. Why?

The healthcare debacle is extraordinarily…
