There is no Eye in Surgery

So I didnt end up having my eye surgery.

Left out before 5:30am and made it past Bellefountaine and turned around. They ended up delaying it from 7:45am till 2 hours later and I was not in the mood to deal with it. Way too anxious, tired and pissed by that point.

I will try again some other time. :P


  1. AHHHHHHHH!!!!

    Apparently someone in Washington has located an entire forest of money trees. Find a happy place! Find a happy place!

  2. Yeah sorta like the Patriot Act. WOot.

    The Senate passed this in a cloture vote last night. It's a done deal.

  3. Apparently as long as you have something else that sucks to compare it to, doing stuff that sucks is ok then. Fun times. Hell, it's just our country. No biggee.. Apparently 'griping', which appears to actually be the new definition of thoughtful consideration, seems to not be hip any more. There are people in the Senate voting for this thing that say we should be taking more time to look it over. The Congressional friggin Budget people said it will do more harm than if we did nothing, but I guess what we really need right now is a trillion dollar warm fuzzy.

    Hell, why am I complaining though, I'm sure crap like buying cars for people in washington, resodding the national mall, ATV trails, STD prevention... I'm sure all this crap will get us out of our economic disaster in a hurry. Bleh. Blue Pill.

    Yay, post!

  4. I didnt say it was ok. Just saying this is how it happens.

    The reduced the spending in a lot of those areas that you mention and that spending would need people to actually do the work. Hybrid cars dont build themselves nor does sod lay itself.

    And people who like ATV recreation generally dont go to areas and spend money in the local economy unless there are ATV trails there to enjoy.

    The sad truth is that there's nothing left to try. I feel bad because this really is the best of what we can do. The private sector is entirely tapped out and prone to not be able to rebound this situation. But then again since they broke the system maybe we should make them pay for it - oh wait we just gave them tons of money with no strings back in 2008.

    And speaking to your secondary point of not enough outrage or people paying attention ... compare how much attention the Christian Bale tirade on the set of Terminator 4 got with the fact that Chrysler took 5 billion dollars of tax payers money and used a lot of it to secure full product placement of their vehicles in that same movie. That's their plan to turn things around, having a Chrysler 300 get blown up in a movie. *sigh*

  5. I can barely stand to watch the news or listen to the radio - there are Senators that are flat out saying the bill is NOT GOOD but 'we need to do something immediately'. What the hell is going on? We are going to push through a massive long term spending bill in a few weeks that the damn Senate has barely looked at? They haven't had hearings, they haven't gone through it line-by-line. I just don't get it.

    I don't buy at all that there is nothing else to do. The economy has slowed down, but I believe it'll recover, and ever quicker so if we unburden small businesses. Hell, Obama even agreed in January. First he said only government can get us out of the crisis and then a few weeks later said Washington needs to 'get out of the way' and create an environment where businesses can prosper.

    The last thing we need to do is what Obama is out doing which is create a mass hysteria, saying it will be disastrous if we don't 'act', which equates to passing this horrific spending bill, and say that the people that are not in favor doing so are 'bickering'. It's ridiculous.

    As government grows, freedoms erode. Uncle Sam will have his hands in EVERYTHING. You thought the patriot act was bad? Wait until your doctor has to call Washington to approve your life-threatening surgery, and they tell him No, they don't think it makes good business sense.

  6. I said life-threatening surgery. lol

    Make that life-saving surgery.
