Things have been in a state of crazy. In my world, that's normal. We've moved, I have far more moving metal parts than I ever had. That's a good thing actually, since the old endoskeleton was a rickety. The world has changed as well, so everything below this post was written several years ago. From now on you'll see a more political site. A bit angsty, lefty, snarky and hopefully with some humor.

And music. There's always music! See you soon!

I will post more next week.

I want to calm my pain down a bit and read Palin's book. I've certainly seen enough exerpts. I may put my amature fact-sleuthing skills to work and see what's what. And maybe put in a cocktail recipe or two.

SI Joint injection failed big time.

Trying hypnosis next - it worked with a bone marrow biopsy, so I'm hopeful.

SI-Joint injection tomorrow.

Since Gumby Syndrome (aka Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) has been the bane of my existance lately, posting is going to be haphazard until everything settle down, which should be sometime later this week. Or next.

Gimme Healthcare: Only in America!

Short and sweet tonight, because, forgive my french, my ass hurts. I have a fusion scheduled for February, an until then the pain looks as if it will get to the intolerable level. I could have had the surgery in June, but it would have bankrupted us. Who am I kidding it probably still will.

Only in America!

  • Did you know investment banks are buying life insurance policies in lots, and betting on when people will die? Yup. They are.

    Only in America!

  • Did you know accepting treatment for a rape is a preexisting
    condition and grounds for insurance denial? Yes, that's true.

    Only in America!

  • Did you know an insurance company can ask a woman who has had previous c-sections to be sterilized before they will insure her? Yes, that's true.

    Only in America!

Big surprise: AHIP doesn't like HCR

Well, duh. What a surprise. Why would "America's Health Insurance Plans" be in favor of reform if it doesn't benefit their bottom line? After all they are an industry trade group.

A good rule of thumb is that when a "pro-reform" group is comprised of groups that are going to be reformed, look deeper. They usually aren't what they seem.

We still need single-payer system, regardless of what reform we end up with now.

Am I dreaming? No. Nobel Peace Prize Winner Barack Hussain Obama? Yes!

I really thought I was sleepwalking and had stumbled onto the Morning Joe set. The Loki mewed and I realized I was in my living room (whew!). Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize and Loki was not pleased that I had sat down on top of him.


To all of you naysayers, look - he was nominated by complete strangers just weeks after his inauguration, but the committee had nine months to evaluate, investigate, prognosticate and deliberate. If they think he should get the Peace Prize, then by-golly, he's gonna get the Peace Prize. He knows he's got a lot to live up to, and he deserves our support because in the duly-elected President of the U.S. of A., and whether you like him or not, as an American, you should support the Office of the President; obviously the rest of the civilized world does.

Later on in the Day Rachel Maddow had a really good taped bit, so I posted hers rather than Morning Joe's.
