A local news station in Austin, TX just did a story on Obama's early love life in NY, and "the girlfriend." The sex was good, but there was something not quite right..... The diary predicted someone--wait for it--like MICHELLE OBAMA~ would be the perky, interesting wife of Osama...uh, I mean Barack!!! Who would have guessed?? I wouldn't think that would be a news event at the local level. If that story has hit local news they have a problem. Full blown CYA going on.

Woman Jailed For Trying To Fill A (legal) Prescription

By Susy Solis, CBS 11 NewsMay 4, 2012 10:00 PM

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Anne Lenhart never thought filling a prescription at CVS Pharmacy in Dallas could land her in jail.

The avid yoga practicer raised more $20,000 for Off the Mat, Into the World Global Seva Challenge. OTM is an organization that was founded by Seane Corn, Hali Kouri, and Suzanne Sterling as a way to take the ideas of yoga and translate them into action.

This year OTM was heading to Haiti for a service mission in which they bought and installed lights, worked at Haiti’s tent cities and various other projects.

On their off time, Lenhart and her group headed the Haitian city of Jacmel, a mountainous region with waterfalls and beautiful natural pools.

That’s where the trouble began. Lenhart had waded in the water beneath the waterfall, then climbed up some 30 feet onto a cliff overlooking the water.

“I decided I was ready to come down off the waterfall and it was then that I slipped and I hit an outcropping about 10 feet down and then from there fall another 20 feet into the water,” Lenhart said. The water saved her life but she shattered her kneecap on the way down.

With the help of several men, Lenhart climbed out of the area and after a 3 1/2 hour trip to the nearest hospital in Port-Au-Prince, she underwent reconstructive surgery with no general anesthesia.

A week later she was flown back to the U.S., still in deep pain, and admitted into Baylor Medical Center in Dallas.

“They gave me a pretty high, heavy duty narcotic, Norco, as a painkiller going forward and I had used that up. It had been a month and I had called for my refill,” Lenhart said.

The pharmacy called Lenhart to ask her exactly what time she would be in pick up her prescription. She thought it was odd, but told the pharmacy what time she would be there.

Still on crutches and unable to drive, a friend of Lenhart’s, drove her to a CVS Pharmacy in Oak Cliff.

She wasn’t able to pick up her prescription because a police officer arrived to pick her up.

“He was like ‘we need to go outside,’” she said. “I was on crutches and I had a permanent IV line in my arm. I had a big leg brace. I asked him if it was necessary and he said yes and he rather policingly escorted me out the front door and into the back of a waiting patrol car.”

Lenhart was so stunned, she didn’t think to ask the officer questions. The officer explained to her what was going on.

“He said, ‘Well we believe that you have forged your pain pill prescription and we are calling your doctor now. But I’ve worked with this pharmacist a number of times and he’s never made a mistake,” Lenhart said.

The officer then took her the Dallas County jail, where she remained overnight. After she was released on bond, she was charged with obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, a felony.

“I couldn’t go back to work until HR had received the paperwork that this was a mistake from my attorney,” she said.

Dallas police later dropped the charges after speaking with Lenhart’s doctor. The Dallas Police Department declined to talk to CBS11 about Lenhart’s arrest.

Now she is suing CVS Pharmacy for False Imprisonment, Defamation and more. Her attorney, Jeff Benton, said her arrest could have been prevented had proper procedures been followed.

“Every doctor that prescribes a narcotic had a DEA number that’s unique to them and if that is cross referenced and the correct doctor is contacted then I don’t imagine that this type of thing would happen,” Benton said. “We suspect the wrong doctor was contacted because they didn’t cross reference the DEA number.”

Everyday pharmacies fill millions of prescriptions for controlled substances. Those drugs are monitored by the DEA.

Lenhart’s doctor confirmed in an affidavit that he wrote the prescription for her and that he never received a call from CVS asking to confirm the prescription. Benton thinks the pharmacy may have called the wrong physician.

A representative from CVS Pharmacy said, “We are investigating how this unfortunate incident occurred and we are working to resolve the matter with Ms. Lenhart and her attorney. As this involves pending litigation, we are unable to provide additional comments at this time.”

“I would love to think that they would actually write me a letter that says ‘I am sorry that this happened to you,’” Lenhart said.

But even more than an apology, Lenhart wants to make sure that this never happens to another patient in pain.

“I don’t want somebody else. I don’t want somebody who I love to go there and get arrested,” she said.

Hard to believe the White House let that go online. Wonder if it was deliberate...if it was deliberate, why throw Slow Joe under the bus?

More on the Life


Under Mitt Romney: Julia goes to a crazed Christian school, thanks to vouchers funded by cutting NPR from the budget. Republicans run rampant and cut other necessary government programs, such as cowboy poetry festivals, and young Julia shudders as she feels society collapsing around her.

AGE 18

Under President Obama: Julia enrolls in college, choosing a major that fits in with Obama’s plan for her. While there, she encounters neo-Tea Partiers who spread propaganda slandering the government. In her government-mandated earpiece, she hears the phrase “black lilacs” — the activation phrase taught to her in her Head Start program. She blacks out, and when she wakes up she is back in her dorm room and sees on the news that the neo-Tea Partiers were all brutally murdered.

Under Mitt Romney: The Koch brothers are now rival warlords, and Julia is caught in the middle of their conflict. Having no other source of food, she is forced to slaughter and eat her pet dog. It tastes great and is the highlight of her day! She feels awful that anyone ever made fun of a former president for once having eaten a dog himself.

AGE 30

Under President Obama: Though still unable to find work, Julia lives a happy, peaceful life where the government provides everything she needs. She is a little disturbed when some of her friends are eaten by Morlocks, but she knows it’s not Lord Obama’s fault, as he inherited them from Bush.

AGE 35

Under President Obama: Julia and the government have a long discussion, and the decision is made that it is not in her best interest to have a child, and she is instead given a robot dog as a companion (which unfortunately is inedible). She soon has some excitement when she learns that exposure to the new government-mandated CFL bulbs causes people to eventually become zombies. As Julia boards up her shelter, she is assured this zombie outbreak won’t cost her anything, as it’s all covered under Obamacare.

AGE 50

Under President Obama: Julia is given a job helping to build more high-speed rail, which is now replacing all roads as commanded by the great and powerful Obama. She has to work long hours seven days a week and only gets to keep 15% of her pay, but she feels good knowing that the rest of the money goes toward paying for all the other Julias out there (all women are now named Julia under Obama’s “Equality in Naming” decree).

AGE 67

Under President Obama: Julia is now allowed to cease working and retire. She knows she’ll be well provided for, as the government invested her money in Social Security with a steady -10% return. She receives a monthly reminder that her service to the government is over and that not everyone can be immortal like their infallible ruler Obama. The letter includes charts that show her how much her no longer living will help the government’s budget, and it assures her that while she may die and be processed into fuel for high-speed rail trains, the government will continue to go on forever and ever and ever.

Under Mitt Romney: Julia is tossed off a cliff by Paul Ryan’s great grandson.

Do they really believe, for one moment, that robbing the public and giving more money to favored unions and public employees will help the economy?

Never underestimate what people can convince themselves of. Keynsians really believe that the government runs the economy.

Maybe there are scared Obamaites hoping to replace Biden.

Preferably someone from a swing state.

“He would be a debilitated governor for the next two years in office, and he would be finished the next time he runs,” Trumka said in a new interview.

You don't talk like that if you think you have a chance of winning.
