Absolutely everything fades into the background, waaaaay back, when one hears the words:   "This is Dr. ____________'s office.  We have the results of your __________ and would like to discuss it with you."  The anxiety rush and the urge to vomit is overwhelming.

That was over a week ago.  I am now breathing a lot easier.  But the experience of hearing those words really brought a lot of things right back into focus.  The saying "If you have your health you have everything," never rang so true.  Politics, jobs, world news, all outside interests, incidents, and experiences do not mean a thing when the question of your own mortality comes into being.

I see the world a bit differently now, just because of the scare.  But, that's probably a good thing.  I've been pro-active when it comes to my health.  Now, I am more so.  I offer the usual caveats about eating right and exercising but I add that knowing them and not doing anything with that knowledge is foolhardy.  We have only one life.  Make it a good one.

It just leaves me speechless!  I can't begin to understand the deep bottomless pit of stupidity these people have jumped into. I'm talking about the tea party and their new coloring book for kids shown here: 

The information in the book is brought to you by idiots who never understood what they read about the original Boston Tea Party.  But why let the real facts get in the way.  Their mantra seems to be:  "Don't bother me with facts.  My mind's already made up."  And this crap is being peddled to kids, as in "indoctrination."  And for only $3.59!

There used to be reasonable, intelligent republicans (the word doesn't deserve a capital.)  That was a loooooooooog time ago.  These people have disappeared, replaced by screaming people spouting sound bites that they do not understand, garnered from vicious, vindictive, power-hungry, medieval-thinking nutcases who want to drag this country back into the 18th century socially but very eager to crawl over the backs of the average citizen to get back in power and stomp their boots on the necks of those who disagree with them.  They are eager to change the Constitution to suit their own needs and to hell with everyone else.  They just make me want to vomit.

There, that made me feel better..... for a moment.
