Bothered by automated Medicare calls

I have become the victim of a serious case of Nancyitis. The symptoms include activity interruptions, time wasting, frustration, aggravation, increased blood pressure, angry outbursts and declines in language quality. These symptoms do not lessen, only increase.

Nancyitis starts when you become eligible for Medicare and have a phone. Nancy calls as many as 13 times a day. The more frequently she calls, the worse the symptoms become. Nancy wakes you each morning and accompanies you on your bedtime snack. The calls come frequently during the day. Obtaining the "call-block" option on the phone does little to reduce the calls. The phone still rings a couple of times before the block engages.

By then, the symptoms have started. When the call is blocked Nancy rings back a short time late from a different number, resulting in two interruptions. Simply engaging the "call end" command does not disconnect the call, and if you then try to make a call Nancy is still connected. If you answer the call and wait until the end and attempt to "Push nine to cancel" it only results in a request to hold and speak to an agent.

Reaching the end of the sign-up period does not provide a lessening of the symptoms because the calls do not stop or even lessen. Is there any way to remove these Nancy calls and provide relief from Nancyitis? Are there any others who suffer from Nancyitis? I need help.

Georgias senators: Support a proper Senate trial

As a lifelong Republican, former member of Congress, and co-founder of Republicans for Integrity, I ask: put truth before partisanship.

We have seen that President Donald Trump is a constant affront to family values, national security, the rule of law, and humility before God, yet our partys response has been to close ranks around him rather than call him out. I lament how our party has jettisoned its founding values.

Whats more, Americans have seen that the evidence of President Trumps abuses of power in the Ukraine scandal is overwhelming. Yet he has taken unprecedented steps to stop the truth from coming out, demonstrating that he believes he is above the law.

Now, all Senators, including Sens. Perdue and Loeffler, will serve as jurors in the constitutional impeachment trial of President Trump. The senators will take an oath to "do impartial justice," and all Senators should take this solemn oath seriously.

I call upon Sens. Perdue and Loeffler to follow Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins in seeking a fair trial, complete with witness testimony.

Will Georgias senators put loyalty to one man above their oath to "do impartial justice" on behalf of the people they represent?

If like me, Sens. Perdue and Loeffler believe in law and order, they will ensure that the Senate trial is both rigorous and fair to the President as well as the American public.

Sens. Perdue and Loeffler should keep in mind the fundamental values that led them to lives of public service.

Loeffler right person for Senate job

Sen. Kelly Loeffler penned an op-ed that published Dec. 31 and it didnt take long for the liberal termites to come out of the woodwork. Disappointment expressed about Loefflers first vote is misplaced, and she already knows whats wrong with Washington, so she can hit the ground running. The Senate is not an on-the-job-training job.

I guess I won't be our next senator, although I was one of the 500 who applied. Loeffler reads, thinks, writes and seems to be the right person for the job. The so-called impeachment is a dirty, criminal fraud. Now she's my senator and she has me as a constituent, bless her heart. I'm sure she's waiting with bated-breath to receive my first letter - though not so sure about her staff.

My message to Loeffler includes the following: Please cease using the expression "our democracy" when speaking of our United States; to openly and aggressively charge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with violation of her U.S. oath of office, and California too - it is perjury; and a thank you for her little bit of homespun philosophy regarding pulling weeds as training to be a senator. I like it.

I looked forward to seeing Loefflers swearing-in on Jan. 6, also my birthday. My regret was in not able to come to hold the Bible while she took the sacred oath of office.
