For those who may not know, my name is David Gregory, I have Osteogenesis imperfecta (O.I.), a brittle bone disease. I use a Jazzy electric wheelchair and a 1993 Ford van. Both the chair and especially the van are on the last legs of years of service. Unfortunately, because I work I do not qualify for any programs to replace my Van and Chair. The lift on my van gave out about 4 weeks ago and I have been doing makeshift arrangements to get back and forth to work every since. I live from paycheck to paycheck, with no way to get replacements. I have found a van that is in mint condition, that even comes with a chair, for $3000.00. I’m sure this opportunity will not be around for long. I was hoping that maybe 300 or so, internet enthusiasts, who might read my blog, may be able to contribute $10.00 apiece, or anything, that would help me get going again. Pictures of the van that is available for now are below, if anyone would like to help out please click this link or the one on the right side of the page. Thanks, Dave. I have a Facebook account if anyone would like to contact me via that site. If anyone should contribute, I’ll keep a updated total on this post.

Check out the blog post below on the latest from Governor Rick Scott.
Call health care benefits and patient protections from millions. today at and demand he tell the truth about his reckless and morally repugnant plan to take away cost-saving
By Ethan Rome Executive Director, America Nowfor
February 11, 2011
Rick Scott made his fortune in health care by exploiting patients and the federal government as CEO of the world’s largest health care company
. As governor of Florida, he’s now taking away cost-saving health care benefits and patient protections from millions. But this time he’s an elected official who swore to uphold the law.
Since an extremist federal judge issued a partisan (and poorly reasoned
) opinion finding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unconstitutional, Scott has been pretending the law doesn’t apply to his state. Apparently Scott doesn’t care that the judge is only one of four U.S. district judges who have ruled on the constitutionality of the law and that two of them have upheld it. It doesn’t seem to matter to Scott that the ACA is the law of the land.
Whether it’s a political stunt or the act of an extremist ideologue, Scott is hurting real Floridians
in concrete ways, including millions of people with private health insurance or Medicare benefits. He’s taking away a law that ends the worst insurance company abuses and frees families, seniors and businesses from crushing health care costs and devastating denials of care.
Scott’s brazen disregard for the law is no surprise. He’s the former CEO of Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corp and was forced to resign in 1997
. That happens to be when the company pleaded guilty to a litany of criminal and civil charges, including lying to the government about how sick patients were so the company could collect bigger fees from the taxpayers. As a result, Columbia/HCA agreed to pay $1.7 billion in fines and penalties — the largest in U.S. history.
Scott’s refusal now to put the consequences into effect in has serious
. He says it’s about the people of Florida, but his action is really about giving control of our health care back to the insurance companies.
Scott should tell his constituents the truth about what he’s doing — taking away dozens of cost savings and consumer protections from Florida consumers. He should tell people that he wants to return to the days when insurance companies could deny your care because you have apreexisting condition, drop you for getting sick and jack up your rates whenever they wanted.
Scott should tell prescription drugs — and tell them he’s ending the 50% discount they get on brand-name medicines. Scott should call the parents of sick children who finally got coverage because of the ACA and tell them he’s canceling their insurance. He should also tell small businesses he’s taking away their job-creating tax credits. with devastating medical costs that he wants to reinstate annual and lifetime benefit limits that will force them into bankruptcy instead of providing the care they need. While he’s at it the governor can let young adults know they have to quit their parents’ health plans. He should go door to door and tell thousands of seniors to cough up the $250 donut-hole checks the ACA provided them to buy
Since Scott is independently wealthy, why doesn’t he take out ads in all of Florida’s local newspapers telling families, seniors, college students and small businesses to start worrying about their health care again? He could also confess that as a rich man he has no idea what it means to be pushed around by or overwhelmed by spiraling costs.
Rick Scott’s decision to buck the law is reckless, wrong and morally repugnant. Scott’s not alone. Extremists in some states, such as Iowa
, Utahand Wyoming, are following his lead, but thankfully a majority of states are appropriately moving forward with implementation–even states likeGeorgia, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin, which are part of the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law.
It’s OK to challenge a federal law. It’s not OK to unilaterally refuse to follow it. What Rick Scott is doing is unconscionable.
BREAKING, February 8th: It’s working! The House vote to extend the PATRIOT Act just failed. But they’re not going to give up — now, more than ever, we need people to keep the pressure on. Sign the petition and tell your friends to sign as well!
UPDATE, February 7th: The House is trying to ram through a sneaky renewal of the PATRIOT Act this week! They’re doing it without debate, and without including any meaningful reforms. Please sign the petition below, and use this page to call your lawmaker to urge him or her to vote no.
ORIGINAL: The PATRIOT Act is set to expire in just FOUR WEEKS, but Congress is trying to rush through a last minute extension!
Since it was passed almost a decade ago, some of the most noxious portions of the PATRIOT Act have burrowed their way deep into our legal system. A year ago, President Obama signed a bill extending three provisions of the original PATRIOT Act; last week Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) introduced legislation to extend them again.
Together, these provisions make a mockery of our civil liberties: They let government officials spy on whomever they want, for any reason, without ever letting them know or giving them a chance to challenge the order in court.
Enough is enough: Will you join us in demanding that Congress finally let these provisions expire? Just add your name at right, and we’ll automatically send a message to your senator, representative, and President Obama:
TO MY ELECTED OFFICIALS: After nearly ten years, it’s time to let the PATRIOT Act expire once and for all. I urge you to oppose its re-authorization.
Add your name and we’ll deliver your message to Washington.
Rebekah Lloyd love for her father inspired this
entry. Even though she has to bend down to kiss her dad, Rebekah Lloyd said that in her eyes, he’s 8 feet tall. After an especially difficult two years for her father, David Gregory, the former Miss Teen Citrus and Miss Citrus wants to take this Father’s Day to honor the man she calls Daddy. “My dad is such an inspiration to me,” she said from her dad’s house in Homosassa. David came down to Florida from Vermont, with a B.A. in Sociology, in 1977 and adopted Rebekah and her two brothers, Zachary and James, when he met and married their mother. Rebekah was just a baby, and David is the only father she has ever known.
“It doesn’t take DNA to make a dad,” she said.
He was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a brittle bone disease. He’s in an
electric wheelchair now, but he doesn’t let that stop him,” she said. “He has had over 100 broken bones and had to have steel rods put in his legs when he was a teenager; he has pain, and it hasn’t been easy for him. What’s most amazing is that the bone thing isn’t even an issue with him — he even walked me down the aisle at my wedding in 2004.”
Except for the joy of an only daughter’s wedding, 2004 was an especially
difficult year for David. A week after the wedding, his mother died, and then four months after that, his brother-in-law, who was his best friend, also died. Then his wife was diagnosed with heart disease and had two stints put in her heart.
Meanwhile, he was still walking, but started using a motorized scooter. However, he didn’t have a wheelchair-accessible van with a drive-up ramp like he has now.
So, to transfer the scooter onto the rack on the back of his car, he had to prop
himself against the car and “drive” the scooter using his hands onto the rack,
secure the gate behind it, then slowly make his way into the car. When he got to
work, he had to reverse the process, and then do it again when he got home.
Currently, Gregory works at the Property Appraiser’s office in Crystal River.
Prior to that he had various jobs: he operated Liberty Stagecoach delivery
service, managed a Wilson’s Leather store in a mall in New Port Richey, operated
boats at the Marine Science Center, worked at a bank, taught school as a substitute
and was a garage mechanic.
Also in 2004, Gregory developed chest pains and discovered that he needed heart
bypass and valve replacement surgery, which is serious enough for someone with
normal bones. For him, the risks were multiplied.
On the morning of his surgery, Gregory’s children, his wife and her family and
his dad all came to the hospital. “We all kissed him as he went into surgery; it
was that risky,” Lloyd said.
He recovered and returned to work 10 weeks later and is still there today, going to work every day in his electric wheelchair.
Another earthquake occurred today, March 8, 2010, 6 point something in Turkey, last week, in Chile, a few weeks before that Haiti (which killed over two hundred thousands) and you if check, you’ll discover there have been quakes around the world, including, the U.S. that have generally coincided with the operation of CERN. CERN is the biggest machine in the history of the world that was built to play with quantum physics. Anyone that doesn’t have a clue what quantum physics is I’ll try to give you the basic fundamentals.
Tremors shake county (Citrus County FL) March 11, 2010

Today, Charlie Crist appointed his old campaign manager and political crony George LeMieux to the United States Senate. While the U.S. Senate is taking up important legislation focusing on our economy, global warming, and health insurance reform – Floridians needed Charlie Crist to appoint a Senator who would fight for us in Washington. Unfortunately, by appointing LeMieux, Crist once again put his own political ambition above doing what is right for Florida.
For the past several years, LeMieux has been a special interest lobbyist who has made millions of dollars selling access to Crist to the highest corporate bidders in Tallahassee. Because he has never been elected to any office, “Senator” LeMieux has only ever been beholden to Charlie Crist, Republican Party donors, and his special interest clients – not the people of Florida.
This is just one more example of the Republican leadership in Tallahassee putting cronyism and corruption above the people of our state. From Ray Sansom, to former lobbyist Bill McCollum, to George LeMieux, it is clear that we must stand together and pledge to end the Republican culture of cronyism and corruption in Tallahassee:
In Tallahassee, the Republican culture of cronyism and corruption has run amuck.
Not only is Charlie Crist playing political games rather than working on behalf of the people of Florida, with the latest example
being his pick for U.S. Senate, but LeMieux’s appointment is just another in a long line of the cronyism and corruption from Republicans
After Republican Speaker Ray Samson’s indictment and revelations about the Republican Party of Florida’s AmEx slush fund, now Charlie Crist taps his friend and campaign manager to go to the U.S. Senate. The shady, backroom dealings that have led to such a culture of corruption and cronyism have got to stop!
That’s why we need you to stand up against the culture of cronyism and corruption. Join me in standing against Charlie Crist’s appointment of
his crony, lobbyist George LeMieux and all the backroom deals that have become the status quo in Tallahassee.
We need health care now, public health care, and no amount of crap from corporate America is going to change that, it always amazes me when the media can make you believe that the small amount of monies (comparatively speaking) that go to poor people is the root of all our problems! Why don’t you figure it out, really look at the figures, the war machine, Cheney and friends, total Cost of the Wars Since 2001 and that’s not even supplying our troops with adequate equipment, and supplying them with substandard healthcare when they return. Remember the Walter Reed debacle! Did you know that Bush wanted to eliminate combat pay for the military in Iraq! Combat pay, a paltry $75.00 extra a month, apparently he was fearful that the billions going to his pals might be affected.
$900,894,690,063 for war in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001, the war was not, I repeat, NOT NECESSARY, THE REASONS FOR US TO INVADE WERE FALSE, IT WAS STAGED, FOR THE CARYSLE GROUP, THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. FURTHER, 9 TRILLION HAS BEEN LENT OUT BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE TO THE BEHOMOTHS OF CORPORATE AMERICA IN ONE YEAR!
Bush family has destroyed this country, when the old man was in office it was only the saving and loan that collapsed and the taxpayer had to bail it out, but you can certainly say the biggest was yet to come. Georgee Boy, collapsed the whole world economy, now that’s an achievement. But somehow it’s the people fault. In a way, I guess it is, when we silently stood by and let the criminals steal the election by fraud, and then start and continue an illegal war.
Since 911 was contrived and orchestrated to happen one would think that there would be an uprising over that, but it is much easier to blame a less powerful enemy, the people, for your problems. And if socialism means we get healthcare, that’s just fine with me. The best possible Democracy is a socialist Democracy. They don’t usually stay around too long because our CIA infiltrates and destroys. We are a socialist country now, the only problem being, is the only people who receive the benefits now, are the rich! It is nice to know your tax dollars benefit so many wealthy individuals. I guess it is because you believe you too might one day be wealthy, and then you woke up, unfortunately, it will be too late.
