Back. Great Idea. Unfinished Award
NOTICE-THIS IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TONGUE-IN-CHEEK BLOG.
Note-that is an actual photo of me on Saturday over there on the right. Autographed copies available (sterilized for a fee).
Some unfinished business, as the result of my mysterious malady. Incidentally, I am better, although the damned cough just won't go away. We are not sure if we had the piggy thing, or just plain ol' flu. Basically, after a call to our girl's doc, we were told not to bring them in, as there is a lot of flu going on out here on the plain plains. We were just to keep a watch on them...and us...and, of course, we got it also. Whatever the deuce we had, it was unpleasant...plain ol' or not.
AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME - Or the guy is ferkin BRILLIANT:
I received a email from a friend today about a Louisiana Representative who has introduced a bill in the house which...well, here is the email:
Congressman John Fleming ( Louisiana physician) has proposed an amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same health care plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are curiously exempt).
Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and sign his petition (very simple - just first, last and email). I have immediately done just that at: http://fleming.house.gov/index.html . Please urge as many people as you can to do the same!
If Congress forces this on the American people, the Congressmen should have to accept the same level of health care for themselves and their families.
Since this appeals to my nastier, vindictive, ironic irony self, I wasted no time linking over there and signing. How about you?
ONE MORE PIECE OF UNFINISHED BUSINESS:
A week or so ago I received a Best Blog Award from Holte Ender. As events would have it, I never got back to awarding it to a few others. To correct that, the following fine bloggers are so awarded...by moi. Check them out if you aren't already following. These are just four of my favorites among literally dozens. Oh, and I didn't bother with certain pooh pooh awards types...most of you who come here regularly know who I'm talking about...absurdly, walking, termitely mean bloggers...no names though.
the mom at Attentive Aphorist - A classy liberal, pissed off lady. Tells it like it is...or should be.
Elizabeth - intelligent, witty, and politically compatible...to me.
mauigirl - Well researched, insightful think blogger. You'll love her.
Professor Chaos - Chaotic...no not really. Spot on, cutting wit and ideas.
And now, on to catching up with my favorites...into tomorrow, probably. Actually, glad to have a tomorrow. Know what I mean?
