This whole mammography thing has got me seething. The media strikes again, making this sound like the greatest controversy since the dawn of mankind. It paints women as “dithering” (Dick the “dick” Cheney’s word) and flustered and this change in recommendations. We are all having the vapors waiting to be told what to do next. Yeah, right, women are such simple creatures, unable to read, digest, ask. We await paternalistic advice.
Go read up on the literature, make an appointment with your doctor and together decide what’s best for you. End of story. Well not quite.
As might be expected the “they’re coming to take me away” crew in the Rethug party wasted no time in jumping on the bandwagon. “First step toward rationing care, ” they warn. The blasted health care reform will mean that women will die! Oh shaddup will ya. The usual braindeads are active again as in Michelle and various other not so smart women.
It seems that a Democrat, one Rep. Jerrold Nadler ( D-NY) introduced a bill requiring insurance companies to cover annual mammograms and other breast examination screenings. He had 79 co-sponsors of the bill. Guess what? Only one Republican is a co-sponsor. And none of course of our crazy ladies who are running around yelling that the sky is falling.
Just the usual politics of innuendo and lie. Such is our political world today.
I guess when you are thoroughly dishonest, it’s just really hard to know how to be honest. Last week Foxy Noise was caught with it’s pants down when it was discovered that Sean Hannity and his band of merry wackos had substituted film from another rally to enhance the numbers at the teaparty on Capital Hill on the eve of the House health care reform bill debate and vote.
Oops, they said. We are having meetins’ and meetin’ with everyone, and promisin’ that it was a mistake, an inadvertent oops factor. Trust us.
Except, that well, it seems to have happened again. Foxy was all shivery and giddy with orgasmic glee at the Sarah book tour in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They wanted to share with their moronic viewers the crowds that gathered to buy that great “policy” book offered by the Moosish One. But alas, the “crowds” weren’t very impressive, so Fox jazzed it up a bit by showing footage of the 2008 campaign, passing if off as the actual book buying crowd.
I guess it’s another oops. But trust them. They are fair. . . . and oh yeah, balanced.
I just ran into this site and so I make no promises as to whether its worthwhile or not, but it certainly looks promising.
Most of us bloggers, well some of us, well me, at least, dream of being published. Course, that does require actually writing a book, or at least trying to compile all these posts into something coherent.
Most of us are deterred from working very hard at said dream since we know that dang few folks are ever published unless you are a celebrity. Then apparently compiling “Dick and Jane went down the road with Spot,” seems more than adequate to make any publisher all jiggly with greed.
This site promises to help you write, format and break into the publishing world. It’s free. It’s called Fast Pencil. As I said, I’ve not had time to examine this site, but I sure plan to go back and look it over and sign up and see if I can finally move this dream to some fruition. At least that’s my hope. If so inclined, take a look.
I seriously tried to avoid anything on Sarah today. I too get tired of the Moosalini and her warped mind. But this was just too funny.
It seems that the author stopped at a Border’s to sign books. All the fine folks of the town had been there for hours, standing in the rain, buying their books and getting their guarantees that Sarah would sign their books.
Well, Sarah got tired of signing, had better things to do, or otherwise had, as they say in the post, mavericky business to attend to. So she left.
Said citizenry were, how do I say this. . .IRATE. They called her “Quitter!” and vowed that their love affair was over with the diva from the North.
Given that anybody who supports Palin is not a bright light in the constellations of the heavens anyway, it should not surprise us that their “support” turns out to be fickle as well. We just heard yesterday that a young lady was unaware that Ms. Palin had supported the bank bail-out back in the day of the campaign (remember when McCain had to suspend his campaign to rush back to Washington to save the country by pushing through that vote?). Well, now it seems to her, testing the winds of the uninformed and uneducated, that the bailout was bad, so Sarah no longer supports it. The poor supporter was clueless, but sure that “Sarah doesn’t support it now” and that would be correct. I guess the flip flopping is okay from Rethugs.
