"GET THIN" said the retarded stick woman with bleached hair to others.


  • "GET THIN"starring 'The Belt"
Below is an informational article about Gastrointestinal Surgery - a weight loss method that preceded cocaine use, cocaine America, and hahahahaha "GET THIN"  harassment coming from dummies.  My ex-husband , Jerry L. Bauer had this type of surgery, and ended up in a wheelchair with accompanying other disorders. He also got the reversal of this - stomach stapling was also done.  He did not really maintain the weight loss and he got sicker and sicker.  Crooks from organized crime think that this is funny and it became part of hee-haw, a program that United States CIA launched to abuse and harass people to sell their cocaine drug. 
GET Thin - goons told us from the Las Vegas Strip Club areas.  This abuse is still going on.
Gastrointestinal surgery

Severe obesity is a chronic condition that is difficult to treat through diet and exercise alone. Gastrointestinal surgery is a good option for people who are severely obese and cannot lose weight by traditional means or who suffer from serious obesity-related health problems. The surgery promotes weight loss by restricting food intake and, in some operations, interrupting the digestive process. As in other treatments for obesity, the best results are achieved with healthy eating behaviors and regular physical activity.

People who may consider gastrointestinal surgery include those with a body mass index (BMI) above 40 -- about 100 pounds overweight for men and 80 pounds for women (see our BMI chart). People with a BMI between 35 and 40 who suffer from type 2 diabetes or life-threatening cardiopulmonary problems, such as severe sleep apnea or obesity-related heart disease, may also be candidates for surgery.

The concept of gastrointestinal surgery to control obesity grew out of results of operations for cancer or severe ulcers that removed large portions of the stomach or small intestine. Because patients undergoing these procedures tended to lose weight after surgery, some physicians began to use such operations to treat severe obesity.

The first operation that was widely used for severe obesity was the intestinal bypass. This operation, first used 40 years ago, produced weight loss by causing malabsorption. The idea was that patients could eat large amounts of food, which would be poorly digested or passed along too fast for the body to absorb many calories. The problem with this surgery was that it caused a loss of essential nutrients and its side effects were unpredictable and sometimes fatal. The original form of the intestinal bypass operation is no longer used.

How does surgery promote weight loss?

Gastrointestinal surgery for obesity, also called bariatric surgery, alters the digestive process. These operations promote weight loss by closing off parts of the stomach to make it smaller. Operations that only reduce stomach size are known as restrictive operations because they restrict the amount of food the stomach can hold.

Some operations combine stomach restriction with a partial bypass of the small intestine. These procedures create a direct connection from the stomach to the lower segment of the small intestine, literally bypassing portions of the digestive tract that absorb calories and nutrients. These are known as malabsorptive operations.

There are several types of restrictive and malabsorptive operations. Each one carries its own benefits and risks.

Restrictive operations

Restrictive operations serve only to restrict food intake and do not interfere with the normal digestive process. To perform the surgery, doctors create a small pouch at the top of the stomach where food enters from the esophagus. Initially, the pouch holds about 1 ounce of food and later expands to 2 - 3 ounces. The lower outlet of the pouch usually has a diameter of only about 0.75". This small outlet delays the emptying of food from the pouch and causes a feeling of fullness.

As a result of this surgery, most people lose the ability to eat large amounts of food at one time. After an operation, the person usually can eat only 0.75 to 1 cup of food without discomfort or nausea. Also, food has to be chewed well.

The most frequently done restrictive operation for obesity is adjustable gastric banding (AGB).

Adjustable gastric banding
In this procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach. The band is then inflated with a salt solution. It can be tightened or loosened over time to change the size of the passage by increasing or decreasing the amount of salt solution.

Malabsorptive operations
Malabsorptive operations are the most common gastrointestinal surgeries for weight loss. They restrict both food intake and the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RGB)

This operation is the most common and successful malabsorptive surgery. First, a small stomach pouch is created to restrict food intake. Next, a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum (the first segment of the small intestine), and the first portion of the jejunum (the second segment of the small intestine). This bypass reduces the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs.

Biliopancreatic diversion (BPD)

In this more complicated malabsorptive operation, portions of the stomach are removed. The small pouch that remains is connected directly to the final segment of the small intestine, completely bypassing the duodenum and the jejunum. Although this procedure successfully promotes weight loss, it is less frequently used than other types of surgery because of the high risk for nutritional deficiencies.

A variation of BPD is a "duodenal switch." This operation leaves a larger portion of the stomach intact, including the pyloric valve that regulates the release of stomach contents into the small intestine. It also keeps a small part of the duodenum in the digestive pathway.

Malabsorptive operations produce more weight loss than restrictive operations, and are more effective in reversing the health problems associated with severe obesity. Patients who have malabsorptive operations generally lose two-thirds of their excess weight within 2 years.

In addition to the risks of restrictive surgeries, malabsorptive operations also carry greater risk for nutritional deficiencies. This is because the procedure causes food to bypass the duodenum and jejunum, where most iron and calcium are absorbed. Menstruating women may develop anemia because not enough vitamin B12 and iron are absorbed. Decreased absorption of calcium may also bring on osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. Patients are required to take nutritional supplements that usually prevent these deficiencies. Patients who have the biliopancreatic diversion surgery must also take fat-soluble (dissolved by fat) vitamins A, D, E, and K supplements.

RGB and BPD operations may also cause "dumping syndrome." This means that stomach contents move too rapidly through the small intestine. Symptoms include nausea, weakness, sweating, faintness, and sometimes diarrhea after eating. Because the duodenal switch operation keeps the pyloric valve intact, it may reduce the likelihood of dumping syndrome.

The more extensive the bypass, the greater the risk for complications and nutritional deficiencies. Patients with extensive bypasses of the normal digestive process require close monitoring and life-long use of special foods, supplements, and medications.

Explore the benefits and risks

Surgery to produce weight loss is a serious undertaking. Anyone thinking about surgery should understand what the operation involves. Patients and physicians should carefully consider the following benefits and risks.

•Right after surgery, most patients lose weight quickly and continue to lose for 18 - 24 months after the procedure. Although most patients regain 5 - 10% of the weight they lost, many maintain a long-term weight loss of about 100 pounds.

•Surgery improves most obesity-related conditions. For example, in one study blood sugar levels of 83 percent of obese patients with diabetes returned to normal after surgery. Nearly all patients whose blood sugar levels did not return to normal were older or had lived with diabetes for a long time.

•Ten to 20% of patients who have weight-loss surgery require follow-up operations to correct complications. Abdominal hernia was the most common complication requiring follow-up surgery, but laparoscopic techniques seem to have solved this problem.

•Some obese patients who have weight-loss surgery develop gallstones. Gallstones are clumps of cholesterol and other matter that form in the gallbladder. During rapid or substantial weight loss, your risk of developing gallstones increases. Taking supplemental bile salts for the first 6 months after surgery can prevent gallstones.

•Nearly 30% of patients who have weight-loss surgery develop nutritional deficiencies such as anemia, osteoporosis, and metabolic bone disease. These deficiencies usually can be avoided if vitamin and mineral intakes are high enough.

•Women of childbearing age should avoid pregnancy until their weight becomes stable because rapid weight loss and nutritional deficiencies can harm a developing fetus.

Dr. Phil's "Homeless but not Toothless" Response

If the top of this mountain were broken off,
It would resemble a tooth I now have in my mouth that
"Needs Work".
I wonder if there people are for real. :)

Dear Homeless but Not Toothless Program c/o Dr. Jay Grossman and Associates:

Hello! I saw you on the DR. Phil show. You are offering a great service to many people by helping Ted Williams with the terrible dental problems that he had. The man was also here in Columbus, Ohio before someone decided to assist him on the Dr. Phil show, always at freeway on ramps holding up a badly printed cardboard and magic marker sign, and has been a known nuisance here for years. Holding up signs like this is not uncommon these days, due to maladministration of the state and massive embezzlement that went on here for years and in other neighboring states.

I noticed that you are located in Brentwood, California. Since a lot of this United States negative development seems to be wrapped around me, I need to tell you that I was hit by a cat, at the age of 11, and this occurred in Brentwood, Pennsylvania, not Brentwood, California. This may have occurred because the people who were involved in hitting kids with cars, (in my case after getting off of a city bus from confirmation classes at the Episcopal Church in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, a neighboring borough), were stopped, and then resumed their activities a a later date. My father died because of these crooks. Now, Ohio, an affected state, is known as the "Cali drug cartel" area. Part of being affected here involved people's teeth, for some reason. I have always had healthy teeth, and for some reason, this time lost all of the fillings from my teeth (every one!).

I became homeless thanks to crooks. The dental and medical care for those thrown into indigent poverty is poor, and in many cases teeth are supposed to be pulled, instead of filled, or root canals being done. This is a continued social problem in affected areas which has never fully been dealt with. In fact, at this time, need to have some work done on a broken tooth. Here in Columbus, Ohio, homeless people or people with no insurance are supposed to stand in long lines and hope or pray that the dentist is able to help us, and if not, find another provider, or come back on another day. Local Emergency Rooms do not do even emergency extractions, of people who have no medical insurance. Sometime the solution is to use street drugs or to let the tooth simply rot out of the mouth if the person can stand the pain. Hope to hear from you soon.

                                                                                          Warmest Regards,
                                                                                     Kimberly! :)

The "Organ Industry" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

This is a picture of a beautiful Chinese red "'paper doll"as defined
by the Chinese culture.
Macabre organ music, somewhat sinister, is playing in the background at this writing.  This organ music, being played on an old Wurlitzer organ, at times has lifts and crescendos, which could coincide with the Human Organ Transplant industry in general, and how Ohio has been affected by it.  

In Ohio, we have to put up with Ohio's Driver's Licenses being amended because people in general are supposed to be organ donors.  We are supposed to be human organ donors as listed on the back of Ohio Driver's licenses as a matter of rote, because this is another Social Policy change that needs to be made.

China uses the organs of inmates; someone who appears to be of the inmate population wants organ donors to be any victim chosen or picked for this who happens to have a valid Ohio Driver's License. This is a huge policy problem that needs to be amended.  The state of Minnesota and other states are similar. 
"Beijing does not reveal how many people it executes, but analysts estimate as many as 8,000 people are killed each year. Reports of Chinese authorities removing organs from executed prisoners have been circulating since the mid-1980s, when the development of a drug called Cyclosoporine-A made transplants a newly viable option for patients.  Rumours of problems with follow-up care and patients dying within one to two years of returning from China have failed to stem the tide.  A single broker has helped more than a hundred Japanese people go to China for transplants since 2004 and the trade is growing. Official figures almost surely underestimate the numbers of people, many of whom fly without government knowledge. Mr Hokamura says his family is so pleased that his daughter has put his experience on the internet. In her blog she says she feels sorry for others to have to wait years for transplants and provides a link to a support centre in Shanghai. "Other people should know about this," she writes." Ref. 1.

"Brazil has made a new law to try to stop the trade in human organs. But this law is different. It does not ban the sale of organs: instead it says that every adult Brazilian becomes an organ donor when they die, unless they get a special identity card that says they are not a donor. The idea behind this law is that there will be many organs available for transplant and so nobody will need to buy one. In the United States, the American Medical Association (AMA) is trying to start a project for selling human organs. The AMA believes that most Americans will not donate their organs (except, perhaps, to people in their family) unless they are paid. The AMA's idea is that people can sign a contract while they are alive, promising that their organs can be transplanted when they die. In Brazil, it is common to buy and sell kidneys, although people try to make it look less commercial.  Donors in India are usually poor people who sell one of their kidneys while they are still alive. The only country that still transplants organs from executed prisoners is China."  Ref 2. 

Rochester, Minnesota, the home of the Mayo Clinic has "Transplant Hospitality Houses", for people awaiting organs and those staying with them to look after them.  While there in Rochester, I talked to a Catholic nun, who volunteers at the "Hospitality Transplant Houses" and she described her role there.  "They eat well", she said, and live in a small area with a bathroom, a room, and all of the amenities that, including free shuttle service to Mayo Clinic as needed.  She said that she has volunteered with the recipients for about 15 years and would prefer that her name not be used. The recipients and the hospital have a good relationship and the recipients all have heavy medical insurance to cover all of their expenses.  She, from the Catholic Church said that she saw people come and go, and noticed that some of the recipients are there longer than others.  Also, while there, I talked to a young man who was the friend of a man who received a kidney transplant.  He was a personable young man and said that he was there with a man who he considered to be his friend.  This friend paid all of his expenses, and was recuperating at that time.  This man, who he, the younger man knew for over 10 years was then walking around using a walker and in a hospital gown.  The Transplant Hospitality houses function as this also - aftercare.  If complications arise, the recipients are taken to the hospital immediately no matter what time it is and are there to be observed regularly for progress.  Unfortunately, recipients of organs have a rejection rate regardless of the organ being perfect for them and well matched in all ways.  At times, we were told that a donor could have to get several organs because the first one does not 'take'.

Social policy analysts "could have" a problem with the organ transplant industry for this reason, and label it a "killing cult".

Blacks and AIDS: an open letter to the editor - by an anonymous writer...

The above picture is a relative of "The Liz-ard" and could be someone from
 "Sex With Slaves",
an Ohio based development cult.  In "Sex With Slaves", men went around and found women who
were isolated and lived alone and then were involved in sexual activity with the woman in a group. 
This was supposed to be the woman's fault and was not prosecutable, and was a preempt to burglary.  The blacks involved with this were the Ogletree blacks and other black gang members, and one white man, who were part of the "Wizards" or "Witches" group.   The point was that this was 'tribal' and the men all had long braids and wore condums.
This "Development cult" had an endpoint in Rochester, Minnesota.  There, people who needed housing were supposed to be directed to homes that were gutted inside and had many bedrooms.  People in need of housing were there with people they did not know, and were there to get meals and free housing, but not a source of income.  The people were not supposed to be college students and  an informant said that one owner of one of these houses of 'slaves' received a
monthly income of $4000.00. 

 The below anonymous, unsigned letter was found on a computer at the Bexley Public Library in regard to blacks and Aids.  Sadly, the "Sex with Slaves" men were blacks trying to be 'cute' in Wooster, Ohio.    :(
( I am asymptomatic - but crooks were trying to give me a hard time - to say the least)

To the Editor:

HIV/AIDS remains a crisis in Black communities throughout the United States of America. The continued severity of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Black communities cannot be underestimated. Our challenge in 2011 is to stem the tide and save the lives of Black people locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally!

For 11 years now, February 7 has been designated as National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). NBHAAD is a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative designed to encourage Blacks across the United States and Territorial Areas to get educated, get tested, get treated, and get involved with HIV/AIDS, as it continues to devastate Black communities. Currently, NBHAAD is directed, planned and organized by a group known as the Strategic Leadership Council who partners with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to mobilize communities and address specific issues in regards to local epidemics and best practices that will influence the course of HIV in Black communities across the country. Healthy Black Communities, Inc. serves as the NBHAAD 2011 Annual Chairperson and the organization responsible for coordinating communications, material development and dissemination, and brand management.

Public figures such as Congressman Elijah E. Cummings; Tony Dungy; Idris Elba; Kimberly Elise; Lance Gross; Hill Harper; Taraji P. Henson; Tom Joyner; Congresswoman Barbara Lee; Ludacris; Master P; Tangi Miller; Patrik-Ian Polk; General Colin Powell; Sheryl Lee Ralph; Gloria Reuben; Romeo; Rev. Edwin Sanders; Tavis Smiley; and Congresswoman Maxine Waters have all contributed their advocacy as spokespersons to this effort.

For 2011, we are mobilizing communities to be the voice and face. The theme for 2011 is It takes a village to fight HIV/AIDS! with the hopes that we challenge the mindset that Black people are disposable. We are asking Blacks all over to become the voice for change by submitting a mini-video through the website that is centered on one or all four of the objectives of NBHAAD – education, testing, involvement, and/or treatment. All people, regardless of lifestyle or HIV status, can and should get involved with spreading the HIV/AIDS message to their families and communities.

"I am The Big Sister" - by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

I recently found near a clothing donation metal box, in the old "Super-Duper" shopping center parking lot, on James Road here in Columbus, Ohio, a white pin-on round button with pink ribbon 'shirred' around the sides, and a two streamers of pink ribbon  with gold 'squiggles' attached.  I picked up the button, pinned it on m coat and later got from a Thrift Store a stick on wooden 'star, one half with red and white stripes, and the other half decorated with white stars and a blue background.  The button says:

 "I 'm The Big Sister"

I really am the oldest in my family of origin, by the way, so I have been wearing the button since then.  But I also thought...

     that maybe "Big Brother"
needed reinforcement from
this "Big Sister" role - to promote
and further promote the cause of
"Reinforced Federal Hubs" for Columbus, Ohio and other cities.

The Spirit of '76 Launch" was supposed to have been done a long time ago, and
was part of a series. 
Reinforcement of the Federal Government
would be on the agenda as idealistic notions.
