Okay, so Texas has a new Agriculture Commissioner by the name of Sid Miller. Ole Sid is a stinker. I’ve talked about him plenty before now.
Sid is real conservative. With his money. With your money, not so much. First thing he did after talking office was to hire all his totally unqualified friends to work for the State of Texas at six-figure salaries.He’s got a reputation for being crazybutt all over. Yeah, it started at his butt and then it spread over his whole body.
Sid went to Oklahoma to get something called a Jesus-shot and billed the State of Texas for it.
Miller, a former rodeo cowboy who suffers from chronic pain, told the Houston Chronicle earlier this year he has received the “Jesus Shot,” a controversial but legal medication administered only by a single Oklahoma City-area doctor who claims that it takes away all pain for life.Miller declined to confirm or deny whether he received the injection during the February 2015 trip.
Well, now he’s having to confirm it. It seems his explanation fell apart like a cheap suitcase at the bus station.
He says it was a state business trip to tour the Oklahoma stockyards. The tour never happened.
Ole Sid showed up unexpectedly at the Oklahoma State Capitol to get his picture taken but the stockyard tour thing did not go too well.
After being told last week that the Oklahoma agriculture department had said that he requested the meeting and did not show, Miller said his memory had been “jogged.”
“You’re correct,” he said, explaining that he proposed the meeting with the Oklahoma official because the two did not get enough time to talk at the conference earlier that week. He did fail to make the meeting, he acknowledged, but only because he and his aide had accidentally gone to the wrong place.
You know how there’s Three Stooges? Sid is all three wrapped into one.
He’s decided to pay back the money because … “an abundance of caution.” Caution? Abundance? Does he know what those words mean?
Jesus-shot? I guess you’re wondering how a guy can make $300 for a Jesus-shot in Oklahoma.
The “Jesus Shot” is a legal medical procedure, according to the Oklahoma Medical Board. It apparently was created 33 years ago by John Michael Lonergan, who goes by “Dr. Mike.”
Lonergan moved to Oklahoma a decade ago after losing his Ohio medical license when he was convicted of felony tax evasion, records show.
The “Jesus Shot” costs about $300 and includes Dexamethasone, Kenalog and B12, which have each been approved to treat inflammation, according to Dr. Mary Schrick of Full Circle Integrated Health in Edmond, Okla., which used to host Lonergan’s practice.
Reached at the Priceless Beauty Spa in Kingfisher, Oklahoma, where he works on Thursday mornings, Lonergan declined to comment.
Apparently, the Priceless Beauty Spa doesn’t have the same high standards that The World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon, Inc. has.
