My beloved [ profile] riverheart has gotten her first trip to the Daily Kos Recommended List for this diary. Go; read it, get angry, and contact your congresscritters to demand real healthcare reform: Single Payer.

Go on, I'll wait.

I am so very proud of her; it took no little measure of bravery to expose herself like that.

And while you're at it, go vote for her to receive a scholarship so she can attend Netroots Nation later this year. If anyone deserves to go, it's her.

hello dollink, I just voted for her, after reading the blog entry. Having seen that stuff in person during our visit I found it indeed courageous that she posted it. But it's just what people need to hear/see. Our gov. is going to have to find the money maybe bring all troops home from Iraq/Afghanistan...where they don't all that war money & spend it at home!! (and don't try to make retirees on fixed income pay for all state health care AND bolster up the pension plan that the state has underfunded for decades...grrrrr!)

And while we're at it let's shutdown all 700 plus overseas military bases. There is no earthly reason for them to exist.

I think it's safe to say that military spending needs to be slashed first and foremost.

Yeah, we have no business being in any other country unless they ask for us to be there!! That's all leftover from WWII...

I know this sounds horribly selfish but given my affection for River, I rather her go with her mother’s initial choice of going overseas to get a kidney as working through politicians or getting on the donor’s list is wayyyy too long.

Revolutionary advances are being made what will naturally regrow organs, but again it is still some years off. In the meantime I am doing the appeal to the politicos type.

Hoping for a miracle soon.
