Brief Update

Ok, ok, been gone quite awhile I know. Mainly I just could not think of a thing I cared enough to say two words about, too many of my own things were going on to care if the rest of the world imploded or not.

The main thing was nearly losing my newest grandbaby who was born needing immediate surgery and spent her first month in the ICU....luckily for us in one of the best hospitals in the country which definitely brings home the point that we have to make certain everyone has access to this level of care. I can't even begin to imagine how differently things might have turned out for a family that did not have good insurance.

Anyhow, all is well now, mother and baby now home and doing just fine and in spite of Pakistan blowing up, Bush still being in office, the Religious Wrong still sucking rotten eggs and our economy looking like a one-legged, blind dog the only thing I can find it in my heart to say today is......HALLEJFUCKINGLIUIAH.....Obama won Iowa. THAT my friends hits me on so many levels I can't even begin to explain but if you happen to be one of the people who is right there with me you already get it.

So for today anyway....peace on earth and goodwill towards every single Iowan who did this miraculous thing. I'm still ganked at humans, I didn't suddenly start believing in god and no, I don't think that all is going to be well now but for this one moment I do have hope and that's more than I've had for nearly a decade.

I am sorry to hear about your grandbaby's close call and glad things worked out.

I became a grandparent myself for the first time at the end of November and couldn't imagine going through a near loss of such a sweet young one.

May things get better for us all in 2008!

I was beginning to think you had been secreted to some prison for speaking out. Glad to see you are back and sorry your grandchild had problems.

Iowa also picked the most backward of candidates on the Republican side by the way.

Did you catch Obama's victory speech?

HALLEJFUCKINGLIUIAH!!!

Mama's back!

And, yes, I am (and have been for some time) an ObaMAMAniac, too!

Woozie: yes I/we did. I admit it, I cried. That was something seen rarely if ever in a lifetime, a moment that redefined who and what we are as a people.

Flimsy: that's one way of looking at it but...to me it looked like a case of all types of people choosing the "non-hater" candidates. In that sense I took it as a positive signal. Seeing a Giuliani win would have frightened me far, far more. Besides, the Huckabee voters were mainly my age and older, we all gonna die and it looks like our young people may be smarter, in my book that's a comforting thing.

Happy New Year to All of us!

Happy New Year and Best Wishes for you, your family and especially your new grandaughter. I'm so thankful she is now well.

It is a pleasure to have you back. I had feared the assmonkeys might actually overrun Nevada (and maybe the whole country) without your ever watchful eye keeping them at bay.

I do believe that 2008 IS OBAMA'S YEAR. There's a light at the end of the tunnel.

I see Obama winning Iowa hasn't stopped the idiot spammers. Good to hear from you, Mama. Like many others I was growing concerned. Congrats on the grandchild. Don't stay away so long next time. I, for one, get withdrawal symptoms.

Glad you're back, Mama. All the best.

I was beginning to think you had bought one of the houses in your last post and moved to Mexico. Good luck with your grandchild. I've missed your voice.
