hopper going down is extra delicious. GOP land.
How 'bout dem phillies!
Should Obama have gotten involved in the Wisconsin recall?
Should Obama have gotten involved in the Wisconsin recall?The president getting personally involved in local state senate recall races (they weren't US congressional senate recall races). In heavily Republican districts? Can you imagine the caterwauling about Chicago style Washington thugs interferring with local wisconsin state government business. Probably not the best idea.Yup, Phillies look like the best team in baseball at this point.*
We watch a lot of baseball, or I should say I watch baseball while Carmen watches me watching baseball. I've seen all but two of the Philly games so far this year.Carmen has been coping with memory loss over the past several years. She can no longer drive, shop or cook, so I've had to add her chores to my list. I don't mind as long as I'm still able to do them.I receive chemo treatment once every three weeks. The side effects aren't all that bad: my eyes become teary and chapped, my nose runs, I drool in my sleep, sometimes my gums get a bit sore. I've lost weight, strength and energy. Worst of all I try walking that thin line between diarrhea and constipation every day and continually fall off to one side or the other (usually the diarrhea side). I haven't suffered any of the more serious side effects such as heavy bleading, ulcers, nausea, vomiting, hair loss or death.Chemo can and in my case does prolong life, but it won't cure me. It could kill, but so far so good. The doctors had a hard time convincing me to try it, and I'm glad I finally listened to them. They're plesantly surprized and pleased that I tolerate the poison as well as I do. We manage to eat out two or three times a week and visit the beach house once or twice a week. Life is still very much worth living, especially with social security and medicare.
Given my diagnosis and prognosis, there was a 58% chance that I would be dead by now. So I'm doing better than expected.On the "brighter "side, 3% of those in this predicament are still alive after five years. I've been fairly lucky to far; maybe I can get really, really lucky. Someone has to help comprise that 3%; it mightt just as well be me.These are horribly interesting times to be around.
What mike said.I'd have a hard time convincing myself that it was worth sticking it out. But I'd get outvoted.The Rise and Fall of the 3rd Reich was an epic; what shall we call this episode?Bitchslaps all 'round for those "Who Knew?" assholes with money to throw around right about now.Reminds me of a guy I used to work with, who was Serbian right up until they started murdering their fellow countrymen; then he was Macedonian.Can we please have a double-dip of recession, based on chicken shit assholes and their stock market "where's my extended corporate welfare bailout" uncertainties?Everyone in a 401k or IRA is f@cking Locked In; it ain't the masses bailing into gold, T-bills or Swiss Francs right now. Oil comes back when the market loses ANOTHER 500 points?Please. Cut the Bullshit. This is about as predictable as the end of a game of Monopoly.
"I'd have a hard time convincing myself that it was worth sticking it out. But I'd get outvoted"I think you'd want to stick it out as long as you weren't in any ral pain. I have to deal with inconvenience and discomfort, but no real pain. And willfully leaving Carmem would be selfish and too much to bear.
"The president getting personally involved in local state senate recall races . . . In heavily Republican districts? . . . Probably not the best idea."Yeah, he might have incited more Republicans then Democrats to GOTV, considering how much the repugs hate him. And anything less than a 6-0 dem win would have been interpreted as a dem failure due to his intervention.
the penxdulum has to swing back to sanity oone of these days. right? RIGHT? chapped eyes? hitler was worth surviving. it ain't THAT bad. yet.napoleon walker mentioned bi-partisan, then quietly signed the partisan district relining.
ok. chapped eyelids.
Someone has to help comprise that 3%; it mightt just as well be me.Go for the 1% patch. Someone gotta wear it.And anything less than a 6-0 dem win would have been interpreted as a dem failure due to his intervention.That too. Plus too many expect Obama to pitch a no hitter each time out. Or hit a grand slam each time at bat. As it turned out Wisconsin scored 2 runs in the bottom of the second and will still have a chance to throw Scott Walker out and win the game. *
people endlessly forget the roadblocks obama got. franken not there for about 6 month. lieberfucken[putz was as good as having another r. etc etc. STUFF PASSED CONGRESS to get cockblocked in the senate.keep fighting the kock brothers.never give up.
if chapped eyelids is like chapped lips....bummer, but the alternative really sucks.
