I never in my life did any drugs of any kind, and I do not drink any alcohol, and I had to have a valve replacement. It's just something in life that happens . Could have and most likely was the fact that he had rheumatic fever when he was younger. I'm just saying.

Democrats are evil    

He's lucky he's not forced to receive Obama care. The Gov't would conclude that he's too old for this expensive surgery and his days would be numbered. Here's to having your own private health care.
