“You have 80% of the American people who support a balanced approach. 80% of the American people support an approach that includes revenues and includes cuts. So the notion that somehow the American people aren’t sold is not the problem. The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically.”  – President Obama speaking while in the grips of a full-blown psychotic break

No, what the majority of Americans want is for the US government be restricted to the same financial limitations that they are.  If you are in debt, accrual of more debt is not an option.  Things that you’d like to have must be cut – be it cable, internet, fancier food, pet grooming, going out to eat, new car

Now that Cruel Wife has a job, the universe has smiled upon us – my company now has day-care.

A while back Frankenboy and I sat and ate some Doritos 2nd Degree Burn chips.  Yea they’re hot but not in a killer kind of way.    Now they have 3rd Degree Burn chips.  They are hot but not a huge amount of flavor.  I was bummed.

It will burrrrrnnnnn.

The trail went from Soylent Green to  Pajamas Media to Watt’s Up With That…

Several errors have been recently uncovered in the 4th Assessment Report (AR4) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). These include problems with Himalayan glaciers, African agriculture, Amazon rainforests, Dutch geography, and attribution of damages from extreme weather events. More seem to turn up daily. Most of these errors stem from the IPCC’s reliance on non-peer reviewed sources‘…  – Arctic Sea Ice Underestimated

Holy cow!  You mean they’ve relied on unvetted data?  No!?!  REALLY???

Who saw that coming, huh?

The doc’s assistant saw me this morning, heard where the neck/headaches were at and promptly informed me that in this case it’s too bad I am not an 80-year-old woman.

Plus I’m a fast healer.   Trust me, there are times when you do not want to be a fast healer.

Next thursday they will shove wires into my neck and pass a radiofrequency current through the tip of the wire, nicely cooking the nerve until it is of hard-boiled-egg consistency.

You gotta be pretty stupid to advocate eating cat while on the air.

Update:  I will try to blog the interesting parts tonight when I’m feeling a little more human.  Jittery as a colt and frankly, as advertised, hurt. Taking meds to get on top of the pain cycle now.  More later.  Thanks for all your kind wishes and thoughts.

****

Today (Tuesday) I go in for a Radio-Frequency Ablation treatment.  They are going to find the nerves in my neck that were given the what-for back in the auto accident of ’07, stick a wire in ’em, and burn the little effin’ things until they die.  You heard that right – they basically microwave the nerve to death.

Yes, I know.  This is reported by several acquaintances as being pretty damned painful, especially for the ten days, maybe 14 days, and surely no longer than 6 weeks, that it takes for the rest of the nerve to actually die… die… die…  So until that time I guess life won’t be a bed of roses.  Not that it is right now, anyway.  Was at an 8.5 on the scale of 1-10 for pain today because I refused to take any painkillers until past any reasonable time.  I just hate being fuzzy.

But, if it is a light at the end of this tunnel so I can get a drug-free active life back… sign me up.  They only do one side of the neck at a time, so this will be a four-month endeavor.

Wish me luck.  Please.

Ok, it’s just 2-1/2 hours away and I’m blogging.  Nervousness, fear, loathing, trepidation, and hope.  All blended together like a chinese blood bank.

A great article points out that anti-Obama parafe… paraphnal… perapher… stuff is selling quite well.  HTOVWOFY, people?

In that article… one paragraph says this:

A poll of likely voters by Rasmussen Reports, released Thursday, found that 32 percent “strongly approve” of the way the president is doing his job, while 38 percent “strongly disapprove.” Overall, 49 percent at least ?somewhat approve? of his performance, and 51 percent at least somewhat disapprove.

Uh… that adds up to 170%, right?  Damn new age maths.  I mean yeah, sure, I can do differential equations and vector mathematics but can’t add numbers or balance a checkbook to save my life, but even I can see that the way they wrote that paragraph suckeths mightily.

A Washington Times article titled “Angry Rich Liberals” was especially fun to read.  You know why?  Because I’m tired of being told by everyone else that I’m the problem.  I’m apparently a co-conspirator in global warming, the oppression of blacks, domestic abuse, home-grown terrorism, ad pseudo-infinitum, ad nauseum.  It starts with Algore, chattering like a squirrel, demonizing everyone else but himself and his fellow fart-sniffers.

The rest of us would find these environmental scolds more convincing if they chose to live modestly in average tract homes. That way, they could limit their energy consumption and provide living proof to us of how smaller is better for an endangered planet Earth.

Critics in the business of racial grievance offer the same contradictions.

Recently, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. got into a spat with a white policeman who arrested him in his own home for disorderly conduct. Mr. Gates immediately cried racism. He argued that his plight was emblematic of the burdens the black underclass endures daily from a racist white America.

However, Mr. Gates is one of the highest-paid humanities professors in the United States. And Mr. Gates – not the middle-class Cambridge, Mass., white cop — engaged in shouting and brought up race.

Yet this well-connected, well-paid man apparently wants us to believe in melodramatic fashion that he is living in something like the United States of decades ago.

We have more of the rich on the barricades railing about the economic inequality of America. Former Democratic Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina preached about “two Americas,” one poor and abandoned, one wealthy and connected. Mr. Edwards should know because he built himself a gargantuan multimillion-dollar mansion in which he might better contemplate the underprivileged outside his compound.

Sen. Christopher Dodd, Connecticut Democrat, sermonizes about corporate greed and credit card companies’ near-extortion. Nonetheless, Mr. Dodd managed to squeeze out of the corporate world a low-interest loan, a sweetheart deal for a vacation home in Ireland, and thousands in campaign donations.

Former senator and Cabinet nominee Tom Daschle of South Dakota was a big proponent of raising taxes to nationalize our health care system. The problem was that the populist Mr. Daschle both hated paying taxes and loved limousines — and so avoided the former but welcomed the latter.

[snip]

Now the most vehement critics of America’s purported sins are among the upper classes. These critics’ parlor game has confused Americans about why they are being called polluters, racists and exploiters by those who have fared best in America.

Do the wealthy and the powerful lecture us about our wrongs because they know their own insider status ensures that they are exempt from the harsh medicine they advocate for others?

[snip]

Here’s a little advice for all of America’s wealthy critics: a little less hypocrisy, a little more appreciation of your good lives — and then maybe the rest of us will listen to you a little more.

The lesson here? When in Rome, don’t spit or piss on the Romans. In other words, exercising your rights to free speech is great, when in the US, that is. Anywhere else – all bets are off.

While I’m not a fan of McCain in his politics, you cannot help but admire the man himself.  He had to put up with a lot of shite for you and me.  This was linked over at DPUD’s pad, but it’s worth posting the link again, I think.

Move over, Mark Steyn – You’re about to get a fellow criminal cohort. Agree with his statements or not, but he does have a right to preach the tenets of his religion. Don’t like it? GO TO ANOTHER CHURCH WITH A DIFFERENT DOCTRINE. See how easy that was?

Wow, Dems are only just now losing patience with Hillary? I did 16 years ago.

How do we KNOW that sheep farts aren’t vital to our ecosystem? Maybe NASA should put up another satellite and cherry pick some more data to prove that it is bad?

Wow, if global warming doesn’t kill us (even though the SLC swears we deserve it), then it looks like water will kill us by dint of it’s absence. Let’s put this in a cynical kind of perspective: We are all going to die. Now, doesn’t that help keep you from hyperventilating until you barf on your Gucci loafers?
