The Rutgers student, who was cited by Ted Cruz as proof of Obama's failure, is actually a beneficiary of the very health care law that Cruz was protesting during his speech.

Yup. Are Republicans So Frantic to Stop Obamacare Because They Fear It Will Work? www.vanityfair.com

What is it about Obamacare that compels seemingly intelligent people to explode in bubbling spasms of stupid? Are they misinformed? Unable to see past the rage-fueled partisan sweat dripping into their eyes? Or just plain dishonest?

Cancer Update: All systems Code Yellow [ps. I forgot to mention the heart pain]

... Code Yellow - I don't know if that has an official meaning, but to me it means, all systems under stress and somewhat vulnerable.  I'm told that the liver delivers a whole lot of services, and they started the accelerated killing of 1/2 my liver a week ago Friday, this on top of 10 weeks chemo -

I have my first in life herpes infection.  Ouch!

A cold that has been threatening me for weeks went into full bloom last night. Yuck.

My kidneys (?) ache!

Energy is down 40%.

Needing 12-14 hours per day sleep, rest.

Tummy pain gone, and tummy swelling, near zero.

I have zero complaints.  No one is entitled to better care than the care I am receiving, and really, no one is entitled to what I'm receiving, given what 4 billion of our sisters, brothers, children don't receive today on earth.  But I accept it on the chance it could give me as much as 15 more years to Serve, (45% chance), and I've convinced myself that the Services I provide, in Solidarity, to our Global Neediest, can be paid back in that time.

This creep needs to be in an asylum: Ted Cruz: “I believe in the Jesus who died to save himself, not enable lazy followers to be dependent on him” [Warning - I've been advised I got sucked in by satire. If so, this still is obviously written where Cruz's heart was supposed to be.]
