My Lyme disease is pretty much cleared up now and I'm steadily regaining full internet access.  (I'm writing this from a hotel in NC.)
I read on FB that you were not only hacked but also wiretapped!! How did that come about, if you don't mind me asking?

Well, my mom called Virgin Mobile when we were at a hotel in VA a few days ago.  According to the operator, this hack was unlike "anything he'd seen before," and that it was so severe it's more accurately classified as a wiretap.  (No, the NSA isn't on our tail, fortunately, but the bastard pulling this s**t on us isn't just some kid learning hacking tricks in his parents' basement.)

Oh yeah, and we got our identities stolen, too.  My mom needs to get new banking information and we both need to get new Social Security numbers.

If you are registered in the IDS (any state) and would like to serve in the Legislature until next month's election, please let me know now.  Thank you.

Oh, and if anyone happens to be in Archdale and wants to meet for coffee or something, f**king hit me up for it so I can get out of this boring hellhole. Tongue

Sad Hopefully things turn around for your cat. Mine was in the vet for a couple nights and just got back today. She wasn't eating and had gotten pretty lethargic. Turns out she has pancreatitis. It's scary when your cat is 12 years old and you start having to confront the fact that she won't be around forever. I feel for ya.

Prayers for your cat.  I don't know much about pancreatitis, but I'll certainly hope for the best. Sad

Also, I'm bi.

Did you just discover this, or are you coming out now?

(I'm mostly curious because you were against SSM not too long ago... Tongue)

Hi, guys.  I thought I'd update you all on where things stand right now.

It's been a nightmarish week, but right now I'm writing from a hotel in NC that's located not too far from my college.  My Lyme disease is basically cleared up, so now all I have in the way is limited internet access.  I am aware of what is going on right now in our region, but I'm going to need a lot more time to address everything.  I will open up tonight's voting booth right now and look for someone to appoint to the seat of A Person, who never swore in after his election victory.

Once again, I would like to sincerely apologize for my limited activity.  I am humbly asking the region and our Legislature to remain patient with me as I continue my transition to my new home.  I still intend to be on this weekend's ballot and hopefully use the next four months to finish what we started.

Thank you all.

(Also, if anyone happens to be in the Archdale, NC area over the next week and would like to meet up for coffee, I'm up for it. Wink)

I've always had tremendous respect for people like Brady who are able to take their tragedies and make something of it.  The human will is truly a powerful thing.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry:

I don't really see the problem with death panels.  I mean, as long as they're being held accountable and managed properly -- nothing angers me more than when some flunky can't figure out whether they're pulling my grandmother's plug on 7/8 or 8/7.  It made the funeral so much harder to plan.

I don't have a problem with "death panels". My grandfather was a victim of our Medicare system. Doctors knew he had about 2-3 years left in the tank. They convinced him to spend it in the hospital at extraordinary expense to the taxpayers, including a hip replacement, much like President Obama claims about his own grandmother. Medicare is the maximization of public bad in many instances.

However, panels were definitely part of the original bill in Section 1233. Republicans could make many strong arguments against death panels, but most of the people who are afraid of "death panels" are probably those who've yet to have a loved-one drawn and quartered by Medicare actuaries in the name of social justice.

If DemocratsRepublicans want to win Texas, SJLTed Cruz and Rick Perry and company have got to go.

(Obviously her presence doesn't have that much of an impact, but come on.)

Oh wait....

Yeah.  A Sheila Jackson Lee can't compete with any of those people, regardless of ideology.  She's a terrible congressperson and, if anything, is more to the detriment of Texas Democrats than their benefit.
