Just for the Record.....

I had no part in voting Eric Massa into office.
I live in Upstate NY but I am not in his district. :)

What a whack job!

My positive take.

I have decided that I'm not going to drown my sorrows over the election yesterday. It was out of my hands, I didn't get a vote, so I can't be too upset about it.

Instead, I'm thinking about the good things that come with the loss.

1. Joe Lieberman has NO power anymore.
2. The Dems won't take the fall for everything by "Well, they had 60 votes."
3. Maybe the Dems can just go for it. By being able to just use reconciliation, they can stop worrying about the unobtainable 60 votes.
4. The Repubs have to put up or shut up now. They just can't say no, can't use the excuse that they couldn't do anything to stop the 60 dems. They're going to have to actually dig in and do some work and compromising or else the American people are going to see them for who they are.
5. The Dems have a little slap of reality now, instead of waiting until November. They can learn from this, fix their mistakes, and get ready to run better campaigns in the fall.

Cheer up people! This isn't the end. It's just a new beginning.

I am not senile.

Okay, I admit... for many of the Bush years, I tuned out. I was in denial so I just avoided the whole thing. But this much I do remember.... Sept 11 happened in 2001... and Bush was elected in 2000. The Anthrax, DC sniper, and Shoe Bomber incidents all happened AFTER Sept 11. I think it is quite comical how the Right thinks people are going to forget the timeline and that they will be able to rewrite it.

And all of this nonsense about it taking 3 days for the President to come out. I have enough confidence to know that just because the president isn't talking about it, doesn't mean he isn't doing anything. It's not like he just said "Screw it!" until the Sunday after Xmas. Honestly, I didn't think much of the fact that President Bush took 6 days to come out after the Shoe Bomber? (until know, just for the fact that it did take him longer than the 3 days Obama is being chastized for).

And MAYBE if the DAMNED Republicans didn't hold up the president's nominees, things would be in place. Funny, how it took the Swine flu to get Sebelius voted on, and there was no TSA director in place on Xmas....

Oh, BTW... Happy New Year all. My resolution is to resume posting as usual.. so we'll see, unfortunately we know how resolutions make out. hahah

How does she look at herself in the mirror?

It's so amazing to me how Sarah Palin can tell bald faced lies. I mean, she knows that there is videotape of her saying the complete opposite.

For instance... now she says she never had a family vote on whether to run for VP, and during the campaign she told Sean Hannity that the girls voted on it.

News networks have been showing many instances of this... I don't get it? She knows she's going to be caught in lies, does she not care? Do the people not care?

And she honestly thinks that Glenn Beck would be a good running mate. She wasn't kidding when she said that....

AND, did you see the clip of her being asked about Iran by Sean Hannity and she answers by talking about Ahmadinijad and IRAQ? I mean, she doesn't know the difference?

Keep letting her talk about policy, cuz she will make an absolute fool of herself... but I just don't know what kind of a GOOD mother would teach her kids that lying is acceptable.

Here's the solution to healthcare.

I've given it some thought.
We need to get rid of health insurance alltogether.

Now bear with me, I've not lost my mind.
But, suppose we have no health insurance. Doctors will have to charge rates that people can afford. Naturally, competition would kick in so that the prices would be comparable with the market and what people could afford. There wouldn't be all that overhead to pay for lobbyists, CEO salaries and benefits, or advertising.

I mean, it is the way that things used to be done.

A couple of thoughts.

Hi all. Been busy, been sick.. you name it.

First of all, Someone needs to put a muzzle on Liz Cheney... I mean really. We've come to a time where she'll even criticize the President paying respects to dead soldiers returning. I mean WHO CARES how Bush dealt with it. Obama is his own man. And it's not like he asked the Press to come along so we could see him there. The press is mandated to go.

Secondly... I'm as Woman's rights as the next lady... but of all the fights there are, is it best to focus our time on the fact that President Obama plays basketball with men and no women. I mean, how many women honestly could play basketball at that level where it would be a challenge for the president. Let the man have his recreation.

Thirdly, if I see one more ad for the 23rd Congressional seat. I might just lose my mind. It would be different if I got to vote in that damn election.

When are we going to get the picture?!?!

Here's a surprise. The Health Insurance Companies released a "report" that states if the Baucus Bill passes in the Senate, then customers rates will increase dramatically over the next 10 years. They already go up 30% a year!!! I mean, honestly, how much more can they rape the system with a straight face. They just gave all of us Americans the middle finger.

There is a bright side maybe. Maybe we will get off our asses and get the Public Option in the bill. It's the only way to prevent the health insurance companies from getting away with this. They will never contain costs. They will ALWAYS raise the rates because they are greedy, corrupt, heartless individuals that let people DIE every day despite having health insurance.

Did you hear about the 2 month old baby that was denied coverage because he was at the 97%ile for height and weight. They baby only gets breastmilk. There is no way to overfeed a breastfed baby. Is this what we've come to now?
