Stop chasing the birth certificate, kooks!

This "birther" thing bothers me. Seems they are on the same mental plane as the "Bush Derangement Syndrome" folks. KOOKS!

There is a legitimate question. A real, legal, legitimate question about Barry's eligibility. BUT, these people chasing the rainbow of a possible Kenyan birth are playing into the hands of the decievers AND will possibly taint the legitimate question.

Let's face it. WHERE OBAMA WAS BORN IS UNIMPORTANT. Read that again. His birthplace doesn't matter. Birthplace does not decide eligiblity for Presidency. Read that again. Where was McCain born? BIRTHPLACE DOES NOT DECIDE YOUR CITIZENSHIP.

Get off that birth certificate train wreck. Holy crap, people.

Your citizenship at birth is determined by your parents' citizenship. Most specifically, the citizenship of your father. At best, BHO was endowed dual (Kenyan)British/American citizenship at birth. The laws in effect at the time though, seem to point more directly that he was only British, gaining his fathers citizenship entirely.

Birthers detract from the honest legal question. STOP IT YOU FOOLS.

We're going to HELL in a handbasket!

But, we've been heading there slowly and surely for the past 25 years or so. *shrug*

Don't get me wrong, it does matter to me. I don't want to live in a country where the loons are running the asylum. But, I do.

And, none of this affects my personal life, really. I still have to take care of the day to day crap.

Oh well.

Retroperitoneal Fibrosis

...because I'm not the only forgetful one in my house.

I saw my doctor about some severe gut and back pain that seemed to be related to eating, as it appeared to start an hour or two after eating, back in the beginning of April. They found nothing wrong in the digestive system, but they did find a "growth" on my aorta. Early in May, after seeing a vascular surgeon and then being referred to a rheumatologist, the rheumatologist gave my condition that name. He also started me on a course of high dose prednisone.

This past Thursday, my rheumatologist had great news. The latest CT scan showed the inflammation had decreased in size by nearly half! He's starting to wean me off the prednisone now. Hopefully the inflammation won't reoccur. He's watching me closely.

Best doc I ever had in my life.
