Cancer has a way of putting things into perspective unlike anything else.  Especially when your cancer reappears, and you start a new round of chemo. There is a good chance that this is my last big campaign in politics and frankly I am not happy about that.  So, I thought we could take a little time for a chat about things both here and in the big picture.

Why isn't Obama's team hammering day and night about the "Social Security killers" Boehner, Ryan, and Cantor?  Why arn't these people being shown as bloated plutocrats vis-a-vis suffering old people having to root through garbage for food, for that is what that dastardly trio wants elderly Americans to do?  Why oh why isn't the trad med "expressing concern" that the Republican ideas are just plainly not workable or even serious?  Do we have to produce the ads ourselves?

I was quite impressed with Rafalca the horse and the "twinkletoes routine" at the Olympics, but dismayed that Mittens would leave Ann hanging, distancing himself at the one time when everyone would have given the dope a pass to be a rich asshole with a beautiful horse.  I'm not done yet, let's jump.

Shooting at a Sikh temple?  Ummm, attention loons on the right, Sikhs are not Muslims, repeat NOT Muslims.  I am willing to bet that an anti-Muslim overtone is at work, we had an arson event here involving redneck cons who thought Sikhs were Muslims.

According to Jeff Flake, aptly named GOP Cogressman, I should be denyed health insurance...which makes me wonder if Alan Grayson really was onto the Republican plan for America's seniors...."DIE QUICKLY!"  The utter inner moral rottenness of this man who would call himself a representative of his nation is astonishing.  I already have insurance Mr. Flake.  You claim that the insurance companies need to be saved from those of us who get sick, or is it a conflation of ACA provisions vis a vis your ideological errors?  Fate has a way of making you see the error of your thinking....though I would not wish cancer on anyone...even Flake.

Attn Bill in Portland Maine!  America is in DANGER because gay folks are too nice on the tube....Ummm, Bill, I understand Portland Maine just received a "great place to live" award and that you were a hit at Netroots nation.  WTF is the problem with these Christianistic hop heads?  Do we need catty snarling, and stereotypes in order to mollify the haters?  Good grief, one long look at Hollywood's portrayal of lgbt people during the last 75 years has be anything but flattering, anything but supportive of the lgbt person.  But it's all a conspiracy to make America homo!  What an incredible crock!  This is Republicanism?  Bill, could we find a RuPaul style drag revue we could send to Tampa for the GOoPer Convention?  It would be a hit!  Talk about broken brains in Tampa!

President Obama, I volunteer to appear in a campaign video for you.  As a cancer patient, and one struggling through the labyrinthine maze of policies, paperwork, conversions and old age too I can give a pretty good show for why we ALL need the ACA.

Lastly, on a light note, I really have always loved motorcycles.  but there are three that are my true favorites....#1, I have always liked Indians better than Harley's, but not by much.  They are both beautiful machines to me.  Yet, I have always liked Vincent's more than either Harley or Indian...the roar of a tall geared, straight piped 61 inch Vinny is something to be experienced both as a rider and a watcher....though I like Norton Conversions better than the early hinge frame Vincent.  I wish I had had the money to restart that line of machines.  What a ball that would have been.

I will be around and post as long as I can or I can sit up anyway.   So long for now.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
