Bodyrebuilding II

shoulder surgery For those of you who might be the least bit curious, Beloved Girlfriend's shoulder surgery was completed with minimal fuss this past Friday morning. And I do mean "minimal" because the entire surgery only took 30 minutes. BG was home and wolfing down "dirty gin" martinis before the sun went down.

This morning her bandages came off and I got to wash her hair, for which I received major boyfriend brownie points. You ladies know what I mean.

And I should make a small correction about the procedure she underwent. I called it "rotator cuff surgery" when it was really "arthroscopic shoulder instability surgery". I am but your typical American sports-loving male-type person and the only shoulder surgeries I'm aware of are the "Tommy John" variety. I'm told the procedure BG underwent used to take more than three hours but medical science can perform some amazing minimally-invasive magic these days

Dont get me wrong because it's still serious stuff so BG's going to be limited to one good arm for quite a while. In the meantime I'll just continue to rack up them brownie points for "redemption" later.



are you registered to vote?Will you be voting absentee this November but don't know what to do about it?

Then check out the Long Distance Voter. Not only can you register to vote, and verify your registration, you can also request an absentee ballot.

Oh, That Mitt.

broken tax systemNot only did Mitt Romney apply dark make-up prior to speaking before a latin crowd on Univision, he also pitched a fit until he was allowed to bus in a hand-picked crowd.


Back in May Mittens held a roundtable discussion which, at one point, drifted onto the topic of education. Romney voiced his many concerns on the subject until a teacher in the group raised her hand and said "I have an answer for that."  To which Mitt replied "I didn't ask you a question."

Oh, that dick Mitt.


GOP veep candidate Paul Ryan appeared before the AARP on Friday. He was booed lustily.


Speaking  of Mr. Ryan, would you care to know how badly his Congressional district is doing? (Spoiler alert: Very badly.)


Mitt is still lying about almost everything.


Mittens pretended to release his tax returns (He'll never really release them as he knows he's going to lose.) but one this is clear: He overpaid his 2011 taxes to keep the rate near 13%.

But have no fear. He stilt has three years to amend his tax returns and get his money back. And he will.


BTW, Mitt romney is losing the presidential race and losing it BADLY. The media only pretends otherwise because:

(1) It's controlled by conservatives.

(2) They want to suck up all those billions in advertising dollars until the bitter end.
