This stunned me. So much that I went out to bother Ron while he was cooking one of my favorite meals. I asked him the question ” do you think President Obama squandered the peace left to him by President Bush”. Ron thought for a minute, looked at me and said quietly, “Scottie Bush left no peace, he left to open wars and a lot of terrorism talk, a lot of war on this and war on that…what peace has the man had to enjoy or squander. See that is what gets me so upset. Today I was at my pain clinic, lots of older people in a pain clinic ( one lady older than the sun leaned on her walker and querulously asked her senior citizen daughter “what is this HIV stuff they have in this question, what is HIV, I don’t understand…”) At the pain clinic they have two wings, one side has fox playing and the other CNN. Well Ron and I can not sit on the fox side, because the people there truly believe the stuff they air, and they are vocal. Several times I or Ron have said something in disagreement and they get horrible ugly, they don’t care about your right to an opinion, your right to disagree, they will shout you down, call you names and say the most outrageous stuff. They are true believers. So that is the crime, the sin of the fox news, or fixed noise as I call them, the true horror of them, because they are so vile and people truly believe they are willing to silence all others and let people like this Rove make out right lies that they then will back up and fight for. Sad. Hugs
Holy Fucking ShitBalls — Karl Rove’s Revisionist History On Iraq: Obama ‘Squandered The Peace’ That Bush Left Behind | video.
Hello happy and wonderful people. Those who come here and those who get it in their email. So I caused a stir when I mentioned the “lump” and “mass” in my left breast. I just got back from my regular every three month appointment with my pain doctor. First the doctor was very happy with my condition, the fact my wrist are clear of any cutting marks and even the residue healing lines are gone, leaving only the scars. She was delighted with my happy attitude and my drive to do creative things now that I can’t work. I have to say sadly she again denied my going back to work, saying I was still too fragile and it would not be good for me, she tired to tell me “never more” by telling me how much I could do to help others and stay happy and creative at home. She covered the emotional part of not working and having an income, but explained to me that I had done my part and now it was time to let those that loved me to take care of me like I would take care of them should it be reversed.
I told her about the pain in my left breast and the other two doctors findings. She asked to exam it. I took my shirt off and let her freely around my breast. She told me she could definitely feel the mass or lump but to reassure me she said it felt like a cyst to her. She said that was a good thing and the best to hope for, easy fix. However she again encouraged me to have it checked by mammogram and ultrasound.
So when I got home Ron called the radiology place and unbelievably the first appointment we could get out all 6 offices was on the 26th at 14:30. We have to call the primary doctor back because they already have me for a follow up on the 24th. Again I am lucky to have health care but if this is a cancer then the sooner we get it diagnosed the better the treatment and recovery. So I will tell you more at the end of the month when I find out. Lets keep balanced and remember all the happiness we have in our lives. Lets be thankful for every morning, the days that rain, the days the sun shines. Lets be thankful for each other and how much we mean to each other. Lets let love and positive fill our lives with joys. Hugs
Again this tragic case, where two legally married men who have been together for over 6 years. Their love and commitment to each other is being undone by someone who’s view is a hateful denial of the very love her son swore to in his vows. However she doesn’t care about his vows. what he wanted, she cares only about how it looks to have his name used in a way that furthers the love he had for another man, and is against HER religion. I have seen this before and it is a tragic betrayal of the people in the relationship, and it gives power to the hateful. This is why we need a full country wide marriage equality. The supreme court needs to stop this tearing of FAMILIES apart by those who hate. Hugs
Alabama Mother Attempts To Deny Her Dead Son’s Husband His Estate| Gay News | Towleroad.
ALABAMA MOTHER ATTEMPTS TO DENY HER DEAD SON’S HUSBAND HIS ESTATE
Issues like this are why legally-recognized gay marriage is so important. Alabama man David Fancher was killed in an auto accident in 2011 and left his estate to his husband, Paul Hard. He and Hard were married in Massachusetts just three months earlier after having been a couple for over six years. However, Alabama’s Sanctity of Marriage Amendment denies the validity of their marriage, so Hard is suing the state decrying the amendment as unconstitutional, and thus entitling Hard as Fancher’s legal husband to half of his estate.
Enter David Fancher’s mother Pat Fancher, who has been granted the right to intervene in the case and does not want her son’s name used to advance the cause of same-sex marriage:………………………………. http://www.towleroad.com/2014/09/alabama-mother-attempts-to-deny-her-dead-sons-husband-his-estate.html#at_pco=cfd-1.0&at_ab=-&at_pos=0&at_tot=10&at_si=5415d025d35afb02
Lets be clear, this is not an issue of what was done to people in the past, it is not an issue of parental control over children…..IF your method of punishment for children leaves them with cuts and bruises over their body and DAMAGE TO THEIR SCROTUM it is child abuse and torture. It is not legitimate punishment for anyone in any way. It is a bigger bully and thug hurting a smaller victim. If you have to leave cuts and bruises and damage to sexual body parts on a 4 year old, your not a reasonable adult and shouldn’t be around kids. Hugs
This is so incredibly sad. really. Think of the dreams of so many going down in despair. Not everyone can be wealthy and not everyone can be the top wage earners. So many do honorable great work, but make too little to even afford to live, to have a place to live. Is this the way to be the “richest country on earth”. I couldn’t do today what I did when I was in my twenties, work my one job, live a lone in my new home with my new truck and have money to save. Today it is not just the young that have no chance, I am worried about the older people, I am worried about my self. Hugs
Holy Fucking ShitBalls — liberalsarecool: Conservatives think tax cuts….
Conservatives think tax cuts for billionaires will change this. All poverty issues are fixed by giving the richest in America even more. #excess
This writer says this far better than I can, and to tell the truth I am struggling with being very tired. So jump over to the site and read this great post. Thanks. Hugs
Holy Fucking ShitBalls — The truth is that since teabaggers became de facto….
The truth is that since teabaggers became de facto leaders of the Republican Party, they have contemplated various schemes to shutdown Washington. After U.S. Senator Ted Cruz took control of the Republican House and masterminded the government shutdown last October, many Republicans complained bitterly about and railed against other Republicans who voted to re-open the government and they have been obsessed with shutting it down again. In fact, their fixation with a shutdown is so overwhelming they have promised that if they gain control of both houses of Congress, their approach to “ruling America” will be predicated on the perpetual threat of closing the government to force President Obama to assist their “bring the government to its knees” obsession.
