Hillary said it

 

followed by a string of personal stories like this one

After all the huffing and puffing

which is good news for the people who want to stay alive

how it came out

so we can afford a little snark

and see reality hitting the tantrum party

and

the before/after tweets are fun

and those tabloids today

and similar from Daily News

The blame from 🍊 is on its way although for now

and also

while 🍊

and right before

but credit where credit is due

and this is a good summary

and be silly

and sillier

although not quite as silly as republicans airing celebratory ads – we’ll remember those ones come election time!

but the Ds ads will hit harder

NY Post after

and the News

this is better

Occupy basher policeman Ray Kelly gets a new tabloid cover – more embarrassing than before

and Bloomberg jumps in for him

Obama’s press conference was also as embarassing as his bill – although the real reasons are not brought up .

From the medical business to the media to idiotic women, they all got on the  Angeina Jolie bandwagon. For whatever  reason she chose breast surgery, plastic or medical – it shouldn’t be our business. But she decided to make it so, so here is my reaction:

A healthy woman is hailed as brave for cutting her breasts because she might get cancer (she still might now, but better odds) I don’t know who came up with the 87% and 5 % numbers and how, but people take them on faith and miss one point: without surgery she might never get cancer. With it, she still could.

Yet the move is praised to high heaven – even elevated at the rank of “a mother’s duty”. NY Times promotes the tweet with the quote about telling her kids they don’t have to fear losing her to cancer. Keep your breasts and you are a bad mommy!

It’s nice how everyone is so cavalier with a woman’s body parts. Waiting for the praise for someone cutting testicles based on an 87% chance.

I have been called ignorant, anti-woman and how do I dare criticize her. I don’t. She wanted to raise awareness, I’m aware and this is what I know:

Genetics is in its infancy – not sure how reliable their cause/effect study is – and is there only one gene involved? The numbers are highly suspicious.

Cancer patients are less and less getting surgery these days. Boosting immunity is the state of the art treatment. With all the early screening, it was noticed that the body takes care of a great number of tumors, through its immune system.

Breasts, ovaries are not just man toys, baby-making organs. They are important parts of our body. Nerves, hormones important to our overall health are there. Lopping them off based on a “maybe” is not bravery in my book.

Oh, and this woman the whole medical science defers to today, used to carry blood vials of her spouse around her neck (they both did, Billy Bob and her) for a strange reason I forgot now.

And a balancing view

Reacting to Angelina Jolie’s Breast Cancer News

Preventive double mastectomies among women in that latter group have shot up by 188 percent since the late-1990s. The steepness of the rise suggests those operations were driven less by medical advice than by women’s exaggerated sense of risk of getting a new cancer in the other breast. According to one study, such women believed that risk to be more than 30 percent over 10 years when it was actually closer to 5 percent. I am concerned that the coverage of Jolie’s decision, if not handled carefully, will add fuel to a culture of fear, to a misunderstanding of risk that could compromise women’s health choices.

.

Among the usual ink blotter stuff, two important headlines in the Saturday news dump. From Long Island

and the NY Times chronicles how Obama further degrades his Federalist Society Healthcare bill before it even takes effect

Maybe now the R will vote for him? Please???? (Someone please explain this clown how political parties work)

And just because it fits the topic so well, an amusing find from Cannonfire. Not photoshop – he has video too at the link

It does work on so many levels, including Obama’s fantasies.
