What cause this madness and what is being done to protect our children. The answers are just as frightening. Join me "In the Pickle Barrel" at 7-8:30AM EST , Monday, April 7th and let's take a look this issue.

"A compassionate soul whom has been dealing with pined up emotion memories of pains and anguish Abuse & Neglect." An advocate for and in behalf of any individual with talent that elitist would through away or out right ignore. ("Honesty is total absence of any intent too deceive you me or anyone else; Because, There is someone or something that knows everything; and that one is GOD..."D.N.)
Education is something NO one can ever take away from anyone along with the power associated there with; However there are people with whom Abuse & Neglect the powers that are associated with education which they had received. I believe in Justice even for those whom are corrupt; Abused & Neglected by those whom are supposed to protect and serve as peace officers, Lawyers, and even Judges... "The way a person walks in life; makes more noise than ever can or will be said."
Every day it seems there are new stories of cat or animal hoarding in the news. You know the cases: The ones where dozens of cats are being housed in terrible living situations, being neglected and abused, and eventually seized by local or federal officials. In this broadcast of Ask The Cat Doctor Talk Radio, we discuss this form of animal abuse and neglect, what drives it, and much more.
To help us understand WHY people hoard animals, Dr. Karen Cassiday, board member at both the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and Beyond OCD Chicago and faculty at the International Obsessive Compulsive Foundation Behavior Therapy Institute and at the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, joins us to share her expertise. Dr. Cassiday received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 1990 from the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and is nationally recognized as an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders in children, teens and adults. You've seen her on Animal Planet, TODAY, and more.

George Dahmer was better known to his fans as “Chief White Owl” one of the original wrestlers for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). George began his career in the 50‘s and continued long into the 70‘s with the Federation, as one of their most popular and loved celebrity wrestlers. He finished his career in the early 80‘s.
In later years George developed senile dementia and was eventually admitted to Columbia Hospital for evaluation. George was 72 years old.
At the time of admittance to Lake Worth Manor, George was fully able to walk, talk, feed himself and take care of other personal needs.
After several weeks in the home, George’s upper denture was missing, along with his shoes, clothes and other belongings. The staff responded by putting someone else’s shoes on George, two sizes too small, causing blistering on his feet.
George was chemically restrained with off-label drugs which are prohibited for use on the elderly.
George's stay in Lake Worth Manor was 63 days. George was severely neglected at Lake Worth Manor. Florida Department of Children and Families -Elder Abuse was notified and so was the Ombudsman. Lake Worth was charged with Negligence and fined $5,000.00.
George lost all residents rights as a result of the complaint and as a form of retaliation for the complaint.
On April 30, 2008 George was transferred by ambulance to Heartland of Boynton Beach, Florida. The Staff cleaned him up and then reported the horrific news- dehydration, malnutrition, lost 32 pounds in 8 weeks, decubitus ulcers on both heels of his feet and tailbone; stage 4. Both rotary caps turned in both shoulders.
George Dahmer passed away at 3:16 pm on May 23,2008.
Many elderly adults are abused in their own homes, in relatives’ homes, and even in facilities responsible for their care. If you suspect that an elderly person is at risk from a neglectful or overwhelmed caregiver, or being preyed upon financially, it’s important to speak up. Join us as we discuss the warning signs of elder abuse, the risk factors, and how you can prevent and report the problem.
MORE SINK HOLES, TORNADOES, HURRICAINS, WINTER TO SUMMER BACK TO WINTER? MISSING PLANES, UNFOUND BODIES OR SINKING SHIP, RACISM EXOPOSED, POLITICAL LEADERS ON CRACK AND THE LIST GOES ON. WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON FAMILY. TUNE IN TONIGHT TO TAKE AN INDEPTH LOOK SPIRITUALLY AT WHAT MESSAGE OUR GREAT MOTHER IS TRYING TO TELL US THE PLANETS ARE TRYING TO TELL US.
Our guest this evening will be discussing the medical negligence, misadministration of medical procedures including dialysis, and the inability of staff to concern themselves with the care and attention she should have recieved St. John Macomb hospital.
As a result of dialysis supplies being unavailable routinely at St John's Macomb Hospital, Nancy, who was trained to give her mother dialysis treatments, was forced to supply the necessary items herself.
On the evening of March 6th, I received a call from my Mothers roommate telling me that the nurse could not figure out how to do the dialysis and when my Mother asked her to call me, the nurse told her no. I had the roommate put the nurse on the phone and I told her if you don,t unhook her she could get infected, she was hooked up for 45 minutes, when it should have taken only 20 minutes. She told me she was not risking her job and was keeping my Mother hooked up until the Doctor called.
" I had one nurse write in the chart what had happened, so it would not happen again. I watched the nurse write it and put it with the records."
My mother had developed peritonitis and they started her on antibiotics...they said. But the nurse had lied, they were giving her Dilaudid every 2 hours until 3:00. After 6 hours peritonitis is deadly. They were also administering HAlDOL......not approved for use on the elderly.
They have on the records they had given her the antibiotic but I don't know if she actually ever got it. She passed away on March 12, 2010. I knew they had done something to her, when a women came up to my sister and I and told us that my Mother had been septic for days and not one person told us. When we recieved the medical records after her death, Dr. Kinner wrote in things that never happened.
There is much more to this story. Please tune in and please call in with questions or comments.
