Senate Democrats have officially turned this into the most drawn out Cabinet confirmation process since George Washington set up the original in the 1700’s. It has been a case of obstruction for the sake of obstruction, a political temper tantrum. They have known from election night that all of Trump’s picks would get confirmed, and there was nothing they could do about it. They are the ones who made this possible, after all, by deploying the ‘nuclear option’ for the benefit of Obama’s Cabinet appointees.

Typically, I do not post much personal material on here. I try to limit my writings to commentary on the events of our day. Last night, though, I had a brief but disturbing conversation. It very much reaffirmed a lot of the thoughts from my previous article, Berkeley Riots Against Free Speech.
In an effort to spread my article on contacting Senators, Weak Democratic Senat Seats In 2018 – How You Can Influence Them, I did what most small-time bloggers do and politely pestered a few of my known Right-leaning friends to share my masterpiece on their social media outlets. I’m never offended if anyone declines, and most of them simply ignore me, but I received one response that really chilled me to my core and elevated my concern for the future of our society.
October 28th, 2014 I was discharged from yet another hospital, with my symptoms worsening. They just gave up looking for the problem after a couple tests. Obamacare is destroying medicine. Hospitals where one used to go real treatment are now just simple stabilization centers. They are ready, willing, and able to send you down the conveyor belt of misery to the next specialist, which still won’t find anything despite alarmingly obvious symptoms.
I fully expect to be recommended by the oft-rumored ‘death panels’ to go into a pain management service (hospice), to live my last few months in Afghani grown, poppy-seed derived blissful ignorance. This option is so much cheaper than actually fixing the problem and extending my admittedly expensive life. This is a very tough pill to swallow especially now that I’m starting to experience the first glimpses of happiness I’ve felt … ever.
