Need to share hat-tip credit with my friend Ted and his friend Carol again.

I have signed many petitions, some from the Congressional leaders sponsoring the legislation who understand their oaths of office unlike Boner and his ilk–Stewart is on target.

I hope the Perry-Walker order indicates that money is drying up for those at risk of criminal convictions based on publicly known investigations; that should make Christie next.

Both Bernie and Hillary have proposals to limit consumer drug costs–this example underlines why it is so important…in the US we pay more for every drug than the companies charge in any other country-and a significant component of why we pay more for a lower quality of health care.

Some people weight in on the TP question of over vs. under based on ease of their feline housemates performing this Universe.

Daily Kos – as always Jon Stewart is exactly correct – wouldn't it be nice if they didn't have to face such horrors….

CBC – I thought that was Andy freelancing for a moment!

Alternet – Methinks the previous Hedge Fund Manager is lying his socks off!

My Universe – so funny…. when it isn't happening to you! (My rescue dog shreds all paper she can get, but loves kitchen roll…. which she doesn't often get these days – I give her lots of cuddles to make up).

DK: As of Wednesday, 39 House and Senate Republicans had signed on with 147 of their Democratic caucus colleagues to co-sponsor the reauthorization. It's a no brainer here. Do the right thing and pass the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act !!! Love Jon!!
CBC: Good riddance, Wisconsin doesn't want you either.
AlterNet: Heard about this on the news...unbelievable! High cost to us, this is a disgrace, as people/babies will suffer. I hope there's a generic pill out there for folks.
My Universe: That's happened to me also. lol.

Have a great day, relax and take care, all.

"Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With that in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately," Walker said at a press conference in Madison, Wisconsin.

Now if he would only do Wisconsin the same favor.

I was cheering when I saw the Kochroaches little darling Scott Walker pull out. Yippee, haven't liked him since he got into office in Wisconsin and screwed up their State. Bye bye bye. I hope the people get smart and boot him in the arse out the door in their State next election.

I had posted a couple days ago the information concerning Big Pharma. If anyone wants to read or comment on it the article is at:
Big Pharma Company Buys Patient Rights To Life Savings Drug Raises Price By 5,000 Percent

We need a truly Universal Health Care system not this For Profit CareLESS system.

Sorry to hear that my catnaps have weakened a bit from laying on the shelve too long and didn't prevent you from waking up from the hullabaloo in your street, Lynn. I'll send a fresh batch over immediately.

Daily Kos: Jon Couldn't be more right of course. The Republicans are sewing the most frightful load of BS to try and confuse people enough to accept there not getting it, or at least stop pursuing their representatives for what is rightfully theirs. How much longer are people going to this crap from the GOP?

CBC: Don't you hate it when a presidential hopeful without any talent, intelligence, knowledge, leadership, political views or any other asset that would make him suitable to become the next president of the US of A - not even the Koch money could do that - bites the dust as he should, and then tries to turn himself into a martyr/hero by making it all about "being called to clear the field and make room for a positive GOP message of just a few, but excellent candidates" (my paraphrasing). So Scott sees himself as a hero now because he put the future of the party, and the future of the country above his own interests. LOL.
Gotta feel sorry for the people of Wisconsin who are stuck with him until 2018.

Alternet: There's three reasons why pharmaceutical companies make drugs. First for the money, then they do it for the money and we shouldn't forget the third reason: for the money. Forget: to fight disease, or find a cure or help mankind, these vultures have only on thing on their minds...

Your Universe: The paper towel roll was (and probably still is) a serious affliction with Q, the cat I trusted into the excellent care of my sister-in-law after hers died of old age. The bigger and fluffier, the more fun, hugging one end with his front paws and turning his back legs into the most efficient shredder known to mankind on the other. I've already warned my sister-in-law.
