Peace to my man Adam Yauch

Beastie Boys hit when I was a freshman in high school.  They’ve been a very big part of my life and have been at the top of my favorite bands list from day one.  I was fortunate enough to see them live five times.  Needless to say, the news of Adam Yauch’s passing is very upsetting to me.
So I say peace to Adam Yauch.  Peace to his family.  Peace to his fellow band mates.  You have been part of so many joyous moments in my life and will continue be part of many more to come.  I look forward to sharing your work with my children and their children.  Your legacy is what makes life wonderful and I will remember you, always.
Thank you.

Have a Pre-existing Condition? Know Somebody With One? Then the AHCA is for You!

Chances are you know somebody with some sort of pre-existing medical condition.  My father has a ton of them.  He lost a foot of colon to cancer in his 40s.  Had a massive stroke in his late 50s.  He’s lucky to have had the crappy insurance he had.  I share this because I know somebody with a pre-existing condition.  You might too.  They may have had trouble getting insurance and it was perfectly legal for insurance companies to deny them coverage.

With the Affordable Health Care Act, folks with pre-existing conditions are covered.  Best of all, if you don’t have a current condition, you may in the future.  Should something happen in said future, then insurance companies cannot deny you coverage!  It’s insurance on your insurance!!!

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments on the AHCA and they can decide the law is unconstitutional.  That would be unfortunate.  If you have a couple of minutes, check out this short clip from Doctor’s for America explaining one of the more important aspects of this law.

Ladies, Take a Look at Who’s Discussing Your Health With Congress

Google-ChromeScreenSnapz387
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) had a hearing today.  As he put it, “…the hearing is not about reproductive rights and contraception but instead about the Administration’s actions as they relate to freedom of religion and conscience…”  The ultimate goal here is to nullify the White House’s birth control mandate that was announced last week, so it most certainly is about reproductive rights.

The photo above is the panel that was allowed to testify to the committee.  Elijah Cummings (D-MD) asked that a female witness be included.  Issa responded by denying the request saying that the woman was “…not an appropriate witness.”  Actually:
The proposed witness in question, Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, is a friend of a fellow-student who lost an ovary after being denied contraceptives prescribed as a medical treatment. She is also obviously connected to one of the “religiously-affiliated institutions” that are at the center of the controversy, even according to the opponents of the mandate.
This whole thing is a crock-o-shit if there ever was one.  Here it is in very simple terms…Forced ”Religious Freedoms” infringe on my “Personal Freedoms.”  Meaning, if a church can dictate what happens to non-believers, then I’m not very free, now am I.  And, if I was a woman, I’d be furious that a bunch of no-sex-having men would have the nerve to dictate to me how I should manage my body.  If people don’t want to use birth control because of their religious beliefs, fine.  That’s their right.  Let them Duggar themselves to heavenly bliss.  Just leave the rest of us alone to figure our own thing out.
