by weelzup

Follow me bellow the orange squiggle of death (whatever) for my tale of big government woe! This will be short and painless.

Kitty is Pissed!

Last week a friend of mine, Lisa Kelly owner of The Red Tent a holistic women's health center in Delray Beach Florida, was served with an eviction notice. Her crime? Feeding, neutering/spaying, and adopting cats living in a feral colony around the property she rents.
WPBF TV in West Palm Beach, FL has picked up on the story and it is now beginning to pick up national attention (yay!).
Follow me bellow the Orange Hairball of Doom for more...

My First Pootie Diary.

by weelzup

I have a confession, I am a dog person. For many years I have owned several pooches, and boy do I love them. I am currently the proud owner of Lucy, a 13 year old Maltese. Lucy is a sweetheart, she loves people, though she is not very fond of other dogs. Lucy is going blind and deaf... at the same time. She is also having a tough time moving around because her hips are starting to bother her. Those things aside, she is in good health and she is an amazing companion. Nothing can replace my Lucy girl. That said, someone came along this weekend who is curling up in a little spot in my heart that I didn't know existed. The story of how that happened is a bit of an adventure... follow me to the other side of the odd squiggly thing for details.

This is going to be short and sweet... frankly not much of a diary, but I saw this story and it crystallized why I support our new HCR Law.

Patient Saved After Hospitals, Surgeons Near His Home Decline Care

Yeah, judging by the headline alone, I think you know where I am going with this.

Confessor Correa had an aortic dissection, but he was almost denied a life-saving surgery because hospitals and surgeons near his home believed he had no health insurance.

I am about sick of hearing my conservative "friends" bitch about the new LAW. Tell Confessor Correa that this law is evil... go ahead, I dare ya.

Thanks to you Mr. President, I will no longer to live in a country that headlines like the one above exist.

So yesterday I read this Reced diary Healthcare Reform Goes Viral on Facebook and decide I want to join in the fun.

So I posted this statement on my status for facebook yesterday:

No one should die because they cannot afford healthcare. No one should go broke because they get sick, and no one should be tied to a job because of pre-existing condition. If you agree, please post this as your status for the rest of the day.

I got one response from one of my "friends" whom I have not spoken to since we worked together like 10 years ago.

Shrinking Democrats

by weelzup

Rep. Louise Slaughter posted a diary earlier Bypassing the "Screamers" for a Real Conversation proposing that she will hold online town hall meetings to avoid being shouted down by right wing thugs.
There are many comments in that diary, including my own, that urge Rep. Slaughter to reconsider. The more I thought about these comments, the more I felt it necessary to address a long running problem with our representatives in the Democratic party.

Harry Reid to liberals: STFU

by weelzup

Harry Reid thinks we are putting too much pressure on Evan Bayh and his merry band of quivering lumps of Jello.

Politico

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Friday that liberal groups targeting moderate Democrats should back off, saying pressure from the left wing of his party won't be helpful to enacting legislation.

"I think it's very unwise and not helpful," Reid said Friday morning. "These groups should leave them alone. It’s not helpful to me. It’s not helpful to the Democratic Caucus."

There it is... Harry Reid's "Leave Britney Alone" moment.

Lemons to Lemonade: A Call to Action

by weelzup

So today's outrage du jour is the "Special Olympics" joke made by President Obama. Yeah, it was an insensitive comment, no doubt, but lets be honest, we have all made similar insensitive jokes at one time or another. I for one don't feel he meant any harm, and he has done a fine job of making amends. Enough on that.

Earlier today I was talking to a coworker of mine who is a dyed in the wool, Hannity loving, Limbaugh listening, Republican. He made a comment regarding this incident saying, "So Obama doesn't do so well without a teleprompter... I didn't see it, but I heard he made fun of disabled children." At that point I about lost it... I won't go into the details, but I tried to explain the situation, but this life long conservative had finally found political correctness, and I was having none of it.

This little anecdote is not really the point of this diary, the point is that President Obama reminded me of something.
