Bodyrebuilding

shoulder surgery In a few hours I'll be accompanying Beloved Girlfriend to a local hospital for shoulder surgery. She has a rotator cuff so badly damaged that it would probably pop out of joint at the drop of a hat, especially if she tried to reach over and pick up that hat.

The last time the shoulder came out of joint was while she was washing her hair. She had to be rushed to the hospital and it cost $3000 just to be put it back in place. She paid for that trip with her own money, not insurance, and she's been living with this painful condition for about 17 years.

Why? She's self-employed, plus she has (minor) asthma and fibromyalgia so she's uninsurable in the great state of Texas. Luckily she was able to find a program that offered an endurable discount so she's going for the surgery. It's still shockingly expensive.

You might think she should have waited for Obamacare to take effect in 2014 but Governor Perry won't allow it in this state, so Texans much like BG are going to continue to suffer just so this dick of a governor can prove he's a HUGE RACIST PRICK. Fuck that guy.

The surgery employs some miraculous techniques and should take only about an hour. It will then require about 6-8 weeks of recuperation but no real physical therapy. After the pain meds run out she's planning on a steady diet of gin martinis until she ready to start bench-pressing VWs again. Sounds like a plan.

Mitt Romney, 2007: "I don't think you change Washington from the inside. I think you change it from the outside."

Barack Obama, 9-20-2012: "The most important lesson I've learned is that you can't change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from the outside."

Mitt Romney, 9-20-2012, later in the day: "I can change Washington, I will change Washington. We'll get the job from the inside."

Mike Stanfill, 9-21-2012: "Mitt Romney is a dick."

Tim Pawlenty, co-chairman of the Romney campaign, stepped down to take a cushy lobbyist job. This is a big, hairy deal.

---------

At the famous May 2012 fundraiser Mitt Romney actually said "I have inherited nothing."

Yeah, all that expensive schooling and hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock as a college student didn't help a bit.

Bernie Sanders disembowels Romney's 47% speech. Bernie is da man!
