Personal note: Thanks to those who donated for my second trip to the Oncology clinic tomorrow. We are still a little short. We have enough gas to get to my appointment but not enough to get back home. I wanted to reschedule it for next month but my husband won’t let me. Wish us luck…
I do have some good news. I was put in touch with a woman who volunteers to drive people to doctor appointments and she should be able to take us to future appointments. She just requires two week notice. Thanks to those readers who suggested I contact the American Cancer Society.
UPDATE: Thanks to some wonderful readers we had enough gas for the round trip to the Oncology clinic.
The reason they had me come back was so a colleague of my Dr. could take a look at a mole close to where the Melanoma was removed.
As of now she is cautiously optimistic that it is okay. She didn’t think a biopsy was needed at this time but she took pictures to compare on my next visit in three months.
Needless to say, I am very relieved and again thank everyone who helped me get to my appointments.
This recent quote from Sarah Palin caught my attention.
“Well, I’m all about job creation. And I guess I could provide some of these gals who pretend like they are me some job security. I would ask, though, if they’re of the mind of spreading the wealth around, that perhaps they want to spring for one of my kids’ sets of braces or something as they capitalize on pretending to be me,” joked Palin.
I think she’s quite serious. With all the money she now has, she still feels she should be compensated if someone else profits from anything to do with her or her family.
She probably thinks she should have been paid to play herself in Game Change. She undoubtedly thinks of herself as a fine actress. After all she did successfully play the role of a pregnant Governor in 2008. In fact she’s always acting no matter what she’s doing.
Sarah is never satisfied with what she has. She always wants more. That mindset is what makes her so dangerous if she were to become President. She would still want more power.
Her past bears this out. She earned the nickname Sarah Barracuda while still in school.Then she was a Wasilla councilwoman but she wasn’t satisfied with that since Mayor was a more powerful position. Once she was elected Mayor did that quench her thirst for power? Of course not but she did abuse the power she had.
Once her terms as Mayor were over she ran for Lt. Governor but was defeated. After that defeat she campaigned for the Murkowski/Leman ticket in the hope that Murkowski would appoint her to his U.S. Senate seat but ultimately that position went to Murkowski’s daughter, Lisa. But Sarah’s butt-kissing paid off as Murkowski offered her a number of positions with her finally accepting an appointment to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. Despite little background in the field she was named chair and ethics supervisor. She used that position to make a name for herself by filing ethics complaints which resulted in the resignation of the chair of the state Republican Party. Then she resigned her position so she could make other complaints public.
From 2003 to June 2005, Palin served as one of three directors of "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc.," which provided political training for Republican women in Alaska.
By the time of the 2006 Gubernatorial election, Sarah had built a reputation as a reformer and was elected Governor despite the fact that she actually had scant political experience. Her reliance on Todd’s advice, revealed in the emails which were released, likely stemmed from the fact that she wasn’t qualified to serve. Her time as Governor was spent abusing power, rewarding her buddies and living large on the state’s dime.
Even though she was in over her head as Governor that didn’t stop her from craving more power. Sites such as http://palinforvp.blogspot.com/ likely ballooned her already over inflated ego. The possibility of being the GOP VP candidate took root in her mind and she was determined to make that possibility a reality. Babygate and the wild ride were a direct result of Sarah’s insatiable thirst for power.
Even though she was able to secure the GOP nomination, under the harsh spotlight of a national campaign Sarah’s credentials didn’t hold up. Stung by the defeat of the McCain/ Palin ticket, Sarah resigned as Governor and has spent the last few years criticizing the President and First Lady. Sarah seems to view herself as the true leader of the U.S.A. and spouts her rhetoric by issuing tweets and facebook posts.
Can you imagine what would happen if she were to be elected President? Leading the U.S.A. wouldn’t be enough for her. She would want to be the ruler of the world.
Lord help us all if she ever does become President!
