might I recommend the colonoscopy...
oh the things we have to do as we get older
granted, this girl was running a wee bit late on her first time, butt better late than never, butt dump bum
in hindsight, there was really nothing to be afraid of...it was much ta-do about nothing, really.
As a matter of fact, it was almost as good as any spa day....arrived at the hospital, all cleansed out -- so much so, and without having a meal for 24 hours, almost lightheaded, like near hallucination stage, like I was on something really good (not that I've done that kinda thing before) and then, I was quickly changed into a hospital gown and swaddled in a warm blankie. And all I could do was sit back and take it.
No more phone
No more email
No more a-dozen things to get done before noon
it was like sudden bliss
my life had to stop
next thing I know, a big burly technician with tats up and down his arm is asking me how I am and tending to my right side, two lovely nurses are on my other side getting me hooked up and tending to my left, and then my sweet doctor, with a beautiful accent, is asking me questions, confirming my name, rank and serial number and if I consent to this rather intimate intrusion up into the far reaches of my insides....
just put me under already...
next thing I know, I'm home in bed, having not remembered anything from the moment the lights in the room went dim...nite nite
So here we go with the metaphor portion of today's Day in the Life of an American Girl--
wish America could have herself a certain cleansing, from the inside out....and then, with a special scope, venture through the muck...bending and stretching and probing into every recess and excess, every ingress and egress, every individual transgress, federal largesse, large and small.
And in the end, when every twist and turn's been done, and with every polyp and rock upturned and fully examined, she, America, somehow returns to sanity, and begins anew, as if nothing ever happened.
How can it be even be acceptable, for someone -- who almost became president, no less -- say something like this....‘You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about." As an American, there are not words to describe how off-putting, distasteful, even offensive this is.
this might be the perfect time to use this wit, plastered across the front of one of my favorite canvasses, a t-shirt: "wipe your mouth, there is still a tiny bit of bullshit around your lips." teehee
Is she basically calling for another civil war?
Are we back to the olden days of duels and kicks in the ass, in order to get our way, politically?
Leave it to the party of free radicals under the influence of Saul Alinsky to double down on tactics of harassment, making threats against life and limb, and using inflammatory rhetoric to incite violence against persons who simply believe in another approach in the care of the American people.
When did we cross the red line, leading us into a new wave of assault?
When is this kind of nonsense okay?
When did the meeting of the minds cross red and blue lines, and arrive at the clear and present danger of creating battle lines?
I just don't get it.
If Trump had said we can no longer be civil with the democrats, all hell would break loose.
If Trump had answered the opposition going low with a call to kick back, his ass is grass.
....reminds me of the time a presidential candidate said this:
“Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”thank you, Barack; thank you for the precedence.
So this sh&*$ is nothing new...
and it best better not stick around very long.
This is no way to co-exist, and get along as one body republic.
If Hillary was president, and republicans acted like this -- the media would be unhinged with indignation.
The thing is -- with all the disappointment of Barack Obama being elected, Supreme Court justices Sotomayor and Kagan being placed on the highest court in the land, the usurping of the Rule of Law with the passage of the "Affordable Care Act" -- the republicans maintained, at large, a great amount of civility throughout all of it. No republican worth their salt clawed at the doors of the Supreme Court, or penetrated the halls of Congress with crazy protests, shouting down the free speech of our elected officials.
No. Republicans protested through channels of civility -- wrote their congressman/woman, held Tea Party rallies (rallies that, at the end of the day, left the park picked up and cleaner than in it's original condition), and used the power of their vote to create change, leading to one of the greatest congressional turnovers to date, and later, into the 2016 presidential surprise of a lifetime.
But this nonsense -- what is happening to America these days, from sea to shining sea, is just atrocious. So much for a peaceful transference of power.
Talk about an embarrassment.
The democrats are turning into Third World activists...and all the while, the rest of us are just supposed to sit back and take it?
No. Just say no.
Not today, not tomorrow, not ever -- is this disturbing behavior of the entire Left bearable, tolerable, justifiable, or sustainable. Something's gotta give, or something really really bad will happen.
This is an assault against America... #metooAmerica, taking things up the butt like nobody's business. I don't know how she does it.
But I believe America is greater than all of it's parts, especially the parts that need cleaned out before the little polyps become metastasized and become a much bigger problem, like, as of, yesterday. Realistically, if we continue down this windy path, the prognosis is not good, people.
Here's one more T time for the road; this t-shirt reads:
"when I was a kid,
I wanted to be older...
but this crap
is not what I expected." ;)
really it is; and then again, it very well could be, showing us signs, that this quite possibly, could be, the very very end, of everything.
We can always hope.
But let's not put the fear of God out there, right. This could be nothing more than a procedural stopping point....something we just have to do, and get it over with, like a bad dream after a really fine colonoscopy....one afternoon we will all wake up and go what???
Until then, no matter how it all comes out in the end, always...
Make it a Good Day, G
