It’s A New Day

Or it was this morning, anyway. Figured out the second mac issue. It was me. Enough about that.

I am having a good day. Sorting papers, making lists, Getting Things Done. Not moving things, because moving hurts, but sitting and doing works fine for now. I feel like I am accomplishing something.

So, I was reading Daily Kos, and came across this “We’re Not No 1!” article. Interesting statistics. For example:

“the United States excels in access to advanced education but ranks 70th in health, 69th in ecosystem sustainability, 39th in basic education, 34th in access to water and sanitation and 31st in personal safety. Even in access to cellphones and the Internet, the United States ranks a disappointing 23rd, partly because one American in five lacks Internet access.”

And especially this:

“Many who back proposed Republican cuts in Medicaid, food stamps and public services believe that such trims would boost America’s competitiveness. Looking at this report, it seems that the opposite is true.”

Let’s starve people and deny them health care and a place to live and everything else needed to survive, and that will make them more competitive? No, it will make them homeless and then probably dead. I cannot fathom the thought-processes behind the Republican agenda. I just can’t.

JDNOAlso, there was a story somewhere about one of the southern states. A girl wants to make the dinosaur a state symbol, but the state government wants to first find a way to credit God while doing it. IDEK, people. Seriously.
