Well, here it is. The day of my surgery has finally arrived. I need to be at the Lebanon VA Outpatient Surgical Unit at 0900, and by 1000 the scalpel should be at the ready. They've slotted an hour and a half for the procedure - though it wouldn't surprise me if they're done a lot sooner. Back when I had my consultation, my Dr had said he thought they'd operate in the afternoon - I prefer the earlier time.
And what's happening to me is so much nicer than what's happening to the GOP. Bannon's calling on the Jews to rise up against the GOP establishment and Mitch McTurtle believes the women accusing Roy Moore... and another woman came forward today. Watch out, they's be reaching for their clubs, and let's be honest, there's nothing wrong with a little Republican blood sport. In the end, both sides will be bloody and beaten to an impotent pulp.
Oh, and the Idiot Jerk in the White House said something about making sure that the 'rich get a tax cut.' Sorry, they don't need a tax cut. They're rich. They sleep in clean sheets every night. Someone else scrubs their toilets, and cooks their food, and most probably wipes their asses. These are people who have an employee who helps them pick out their clothing and helps them get dressed in the morning, who most likely hand washes their delicate dainties. These are people who have never washed a dish, or dusted, or vacuumed, and may be hard pressed to tell the difference between a broom and a mop. They don't deserve a tax cut. Yeah, that's the penalty for being rich, you have to pay more taxes than us poorer folk. Tough Shit.
