Sleep Apnea Blues

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain — and the rest of the body — may not get enough oxygen.

When I spent 9 days in the hospital it was discovered I had severe sleep apnea. I knew there was something wrong for years but I didn’t have the medical coverage to get tested for it. Having had a quadruple bypass in 2004, I was in the cardio unit and hooked up to an EKG. It was discovered that the reason I would suffer periodic blackouts was that my heart would literally stop for from 2-8 seconds. I use a VPAP (different from a CPAP) machine now and cannot sleep without it. It is difficult for me to go more than a few hours without sleep. As such, I spend a large part of the day sleeping and have trouble sleeping at night. Such was the case today, so I figured I’d get an early start on the babbling.

It is no secret that the democrats loathe the military and sometimes go out of their way to harm them. CtH has stated here that those serving, like her warriors, were miserable under the dictates of Barack H. Obama. The mightiest fighting force in the world was reduced to an insipid social experiment. All that ended today and the results were predictable. Unlike his predecessor, Trump LISTENS to the generals who conduct the actual operations.

Pres. Trump bars transgender individuals from US armed forces

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump abruptly declared a ban Wednesday on transgender troops serving anywhere in the U.S. military, catching the Pentagon flat-footed and unable to explain what it called President Trump’s “guidance.” His proclamation, on Twitter rather than any formal announcement, drew bipartisan denunciations and threw currently serving transgender soldiers into limbo.
“Please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” the commander in chief tweeted.

GOP senators break with Trump over transgender troop ban
Multiple Republican senators broke with President Trump on Wednesday after he announced on Twitter that transgender troops would be banned from serving in the military.
In separate statements, GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Richard Shelby (Ala.) and Orrin Hatch (Utah) all criticized Trump for his decision that Obama-era rules allowing transgender troops to serve would be reversed.
McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, ripped the call and said that Trump shouldn’t be making policy announcements via tweet.

Just 23 Percent Of Voters Say Trans Enlistment Is Good For The Military
A Rasmussen survey taken last month found that just 23 percent of likely voters think the decision to allow openly transgender people to serve — a decision made by the Obama administration — is good for the military. Just under one-third of likely voters — 31 percent — think it’s bad for the military to allow openly transgender soldiers to serve, while another 38 percent thought it would have no impact.
President Trump defended the ban on the grounds that military policies should be oriented towards what’s best for winning wars.
“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” he explained on Twitter Wednesday morning.

Combat Veteran: War Is No Place For The Gender Confused
In a tweet series, Salzman recounted his experiences in Iraq in 2006, when he was stationed at an isolated firebase in the blazing heat and experienced constant stress from the intense nature of his job.
“Everyday was Groundhog Day,” Salzman tweeted. “Wake up and do the same patrols, the same shifts, every single day. It was so damn hot. 150° in the gun trucks.”
“The stress of being out there and doing the same job every single day eats away at you,” Salzman said. “The younger guys had problems with that overtime.”
“After stepping on each other’s nuts living in the same can for five months, guys were at each other’s throats,” Salzman added. “The stress made it worse.”

    I found it very easy to understand everything Progressives support or despise once I saw how they lined up with God’s Word.

    Love atheists, wiccans, Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims while hating Christians and Jews? Check.

    Love abortion, unrestrained sex, homo and transsexuality, while hating chastity, celibacy, and traditional marriage? Check.

    I could go on.

    As for that twit who says he has a “right” to serve … no. You don’t.

    • No one has the right to serve. The armed forces don’t exist to provide job opportunities to fashionable minorities or supposedly underrepresented demographic groups. You can get rejected for all kinds of reasons, as Bill Whittle learned when he tried to enlist in the Air Force and didn’t qualify because his vision wasn’t good enough. Anyone with an IQ above room temperature understands that mental illness should disqualify someone from serving.

    • Thanks Pete. I had a good trip — I went to visit my best friend for a few days, also got to see my eldest daughter, whom I hadn’t seen in more than a year — but it’s always good to get home again afterward.
