- non-fatal allergies that require some intervention to make me a consistently productive citizen
- an extra aorta which is totally asymptomatic and likely to remain that way
- past history of mental health issues (this is why I was denied coverage for personal disability insurance shortly after I participated in a fitness camp run by Navy SEALs)

A friend just let me know she'd thought about inviting me over for the weekend to watch the Health Care Reform bill on CSPAN with her and her husband, saying "it was like the superbowl at our house!" Totally chuffed by that.

As long as we're on politics, I finally found someone documenting all the hypocricies that have been making my head explode, then a few more for good measure.
Some people get on my case about how I should allow that other people may feel differently than me on certain heated topics. Well, I'll allow for the fact that people can disagree with me up to when they start spouting the FOX/Rove talking points that are directly contradicting what they, themselves said they believed two years ago. The one that really gets to me is the exact same commentators (and follower) who called it treasonous at worst and unpatriotic at best to be questioning the president or his motives or his actions when Bush was in the white house are all but calling for violent action against Obama and push for obstructing everything the current, legally elected American President does as being unAmerican. They're not even pretending to be honest about that. And I don't feel any need whatsoever to assume they're being honest when they are provably not being honest. Dissent is patriotic and makes our nation stronger. Infantile obstructionism and fear mongering is just that, and makes everyone weaker.
