Here's one reason... Robert Byrd Hwy, "Corridor H". He's a master of bringing OPM" to WV. Virgina has refused to provide a link from 66, due to Winchester and Front Royal lobby efforts. But, once you get over the first mountain at the WV line on 55, you come through the George Washington National Forest, on down a winding two-lane, and enter Wardensville, which does have a 7-11 where you can buy Jack Daniels, Couvoisier, Cheese Doodles, and a Slurpee. From there, you drive west at 65 on a 4 lane, until it stops at Moorefield near the WalMart... It's still "under construction", for about ten years now! It's planned to eventually connect east WV with Charleston by 4-lane. You can't get there right now, except of Rt. 50 w..
* other people's money!
My husband said he was sure that the last time they wheeled him into Congress in a wheelchair that he actually was either dead...or they left the machines outside the door just long enough for him to show up to vote.
Here in Georgia, at least in my county, they send cops, ambulence, fire etc for any emergency call.
I’ve always imagined that while they’re all standing around deciding what to do for the cat stuck up your tree, the other side of town could be being pillaged and burned to the ground.
In case you have trouble getting to sleep, I use this. It works better than hops and valerian root combined:
and they elected this to the Senate??
If he needs a caregiver he needs to resign from the Senate. He is clearly not capable of doing his job.
I’m hate to admit this...but that made my laugh.
Amen. It is sickening to see how respected the drunk windbag racist sheets is to some posters here.
Now if this accident had occurred to Senator Byrd while he was actually home in West Virginia, he could have been rescued by the Robert F Byrd Emergency Response Team, assisted by the Robert F Byrd Volunteer Fire Department, and if necessary, taken to the local Robert F Byrd Memorial Hospital and Convalescence Center where he could have received superior care in the special Robert F Byrd Recovery Wing.
Here’s hoping the ol’ buzzard pulls through ok.
Ambulances racing to his home? Competition to see who gets to take him on his final ride?
Several Freepers on this thread have likened the racist pork hog to a Constitutional patriot. I wonder what's Constitutional about enormous amounts of pork?
That is the holy grail of racist Democrat quotes.
Or,better still,he'll hang on...in the hospital...for the next 3 months or so.
After all this graft, he still doesn’t own his own ambulance?
Let’s hope he doesn’t die.Dem Senators are most valuable when they are almost dead.
He’ll meet Kennedy, and then Johnson, and then the other Kennedy, and then the other Kennedy. . .
You can look up information about the training and curriculum for EMT-Basic providers; it’s probably much more extensive than you think.
An EMT-B course involves more than a hundred classroom hours covering a broad range of subjects, with much attention given to patient assessment. Granted, EMT-B’s are not doctors, but there are a number of interventions they are qualified to perform in the field besides taking someone’s blood pressure.
EMT classifications continue up to EMT-P, commonly referred to as a paramedic. Much of the advanced training received by paramedics covers pharmacology and cardiac care, but the basics are identical.
In Fairfax County, where this occurred, all firefighters are at least certified EMT-B. Each of the 37 stations has an ambulance staffed with a paramedic at all times.
Funniest thread I’ve read in a long time.
Well, good for him; but, otherwise, his being recognized as our top elected scholar of the Constitution is something I laugh at. It’s time for the convening of one of the “O’s” death panels in the case of the “Dean of the Senate”-it’s going to cost too much in taxpayer dollars to keep him alive.
Might cost more if he's replaced by someone young and vigorous enough to actually show up and vote! ;-)
“Did he injure himself putting on his Grand Kleagle outfit?”
May have poked himself in the eye with the pointy end of the sheet.
Going to be hard for the people of WV to honor him after he’s gone because it will be next to impossible to find anything in the state without his name already on it.
What is it with Byrd and his friends as every time they make a wooden lower case “t” it bursts into flames?
I took an EMT class here in San Diego. The range of the abilities of an EMT are very limited here(due to lawsuits).
It is not a requirement to have a fire fighter rated as an EMT. I think there are only two stations here that don’t require it. But you are pretty much guranteed a job if you get your paramedic rating. They are in extremely high demand here.
And the Dems call Conservatives the racists... Such incredible hypocrisy, isn’t it?
Read the Washington Post article by Pianin, dated June 19, 2005 - It’s called “A Senator’s Shame.” It has the excerpts from a blatantly racist letter Byrd wrote. He gets the media pass, but Strom Thurmond and Trent Lott get the finger. A shadowy government agency, the “OSI” tracked the KKK thoroughly and amassed a startling dossier. Learn more about the OSI here: http://thebloviatinghammerhead.wordpress.com
It’s completely absurd, and if the members of the Constitutional Convention could have looked ahead and seen this guy, I have little doubt they would have put term limits into the original constitution.
The Democrats will put a nursing home right in the Capitol building rather than let Byrd retire and risk the strong likelihood that a Republican will win his seat.
How in the HELL is this man a Senator? And for the Democrats, who love to shout “Racist” in a crowded room???
That quote is absolutely insane. Has he ever disavowed or apologized for it?? What is up with his constituents?
I see Karl Rove has recently changed the setting on his hurricane causing machine to “cause physical failure to old senators”
This isn’t looking good for ol’Sheets . . .
Maybe he tripped on his sheet while he was getting up.
This hospital visit is more than just him falling..I think the Dem's are trying to get a replacement for him preferably a black..that loves Obama..
You and I, among others, feel the same.
A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with an atrial flutter. My doctor gave me an EKG, and then said he was going to admit for some more protest. He said I’d have to go by ambulance. I complained, saying I could jog over to the hospital, but he insisted. So the ambulance showed up ALONG with a fire engine w/ladder. It was a one-story building. My insurance covered $500 but I had to spring for $150 for the fire truck. Then the ambulance started to take me to the wrong hospital.
FYI: I have run marathons. There was a point where my pulse was around 43 beats a minute. I used to get dizzy when I got up too fast. Same thing happened to George Bush when he almost choked on a peanut.
Yeah, similar to those classy remarks made about the late, great Teddy Kennedy/sarc
I live in McLean and am very happy with the emergency services, which I used a few years ago.
TERM LIMITS NOW!
Despite growing up near the ghettos of Chicago, the worst poverty I have ever seen was in the mountains of West Virginia and on the Indian reservations in South Dakota.
Agreed, the worst I’ve seen is on reservations in Arizona.
I’m sure that when he goes the dems in general will praise him for his support of the downtrodden, blacks will praise the old Klukster as being a giant in support of minorities and there will be an appropriate period in which to parade the corpse for political purposes.
Now was that a left at the Robert D. Byrd high school or the Robert D. Byrd middle school? If you passed the Robert D. Byrd library then you went too far. Turn around and go right on the Byrd Parkway until you get...
I lived in Clarksburg WV for a little over a year back in the early 2000’s-the most miserable place I’ve ever been.
His rapidly declining health grieves me deeply. My dreams are rapidly dissolving.
You see, I've fervently hoped for years that I'd live to see the day when all three of:
Castro, TeddyK, ByrdKleagle
were tossed out on their ears by the masses they ruled over - in the case of the last two, electorally speaking, and in the case of the first, coupdetatedly speaking.
The odds of seeing any shred of these fond dreams come true is fast going down the toilet.
Motor racing is real big in Dixie. Has anyone heard who took the checkered flag?
How about - "West Byrdjinia"??
