This morning while perusing different news sites I came across an article announcing the second season of Sarah Palin's Amazing America...and the commentators did not fail me or America.
Earlier today I received a phone call from my physician here in Idaho Falls telling me that I had Cervical/Uterine Cancer. Yes, I wish I was a bit more precise in the words he used but to be honest I was already starting a "things to do" list.
I underwent a full hysterectomy on Tuesday so am in the process of healing from that procedure.
Right now I'm looking for resources and information. Going oh poor me won't change the situation...so if those who may be of help could join me after the cheeto...
Karl Rove, in a visit to Fox News, referred to Hillary Clinton as "Old and stale". Politico
He then continued to make references that were an obvious ploy to play upon her age.
The proof is in the past as to his double standard regarding treatment of men and women on this issue.
...and pass the orange cream puff we go.
Perhaps if we stopped talking to empty rooms and filled them with voices we could make a start.
*And as I just published this diary I note there is a Front Page diary regarding Representative Lee Terry's ridiculous statement.....and no link to a Facebook Page, email, etc...
It looks like the Park Service has replace the barriers to keep visitors out of the parks. Veterans from across the country are coming to DC to see the WWII memorial. Yesterday vet groups and a few Congressman removed the barriers. I am headed down to the memorial to see that the groups scheduled to visit today get in.Rep. Pearce Facebook
Rather than chase after Tea Party contrived photo ops perhaps Rep. Pearce should be aware of what the GOP's actions are truly doing to our military families.
Well, you have the National Review Online and their man Andrew Stiles to thank for this smear as the Republican War on Women continues.
One of those individuals is Attorney Bryan Smith, a candidate in Idaho's 2nd Congressional District. Mr. Smith flies into the race...and campaign events, revealing an instant shortcoming regarding ethics and a heavy does of extremist rhetoric and very little substance.
What these individuals are professing is simply false and the allegation is, in my opinion, an intellectually cheap maneuver with a darker purpose.
*By the way, the photo is of our dog. She couldn't find her tennis ball and wanted to play catch so she grabbed an apple instead. I couldn't find a relevant photo to the story but she's British, so she's probably a liberal and that will have to do.
During that time I had the pleasure of meeting many individuals involved in the U.K. (and Scottish) governments but none so enjoyable as Mr. Karl Connor. Karl resides in Egremont, a small community outside of Whitehaven in Cumbria. He serves as a Labour Party member of the Copeland Borough Council.
As would be expected there has been much discussion regarding former Prime Minister Thatcher's passing today in the U.K. and when I read Mr. Connor's rather pointed remarks I thought it may be of interest for those of us on this side of the pond who watched, but didn't live, the effects of Thatcher's policies on the working class in the U.K.
I popped over to Free Republic to see what the Tea Party /Far Right wing of the Republican Party had to say regarding the tragic events this morning.
Its not pretty, its not even sane, but it definitely gives you an idea what we are up against when we attempt to speak rationally about the tragic events involving guns occurring in the United States.
