I am so upset about the evil people running this country. Probably not all the people signing the Trampcare bill are actually evil, but they are callous at least. How dare they refer to themselves as pro-life and try to put this into effect: it's anti-life. You cannot say "you can't have an abortion because every life is sacred" and then deny health care to mother and child. It is cruel and inhumane.

Whose was the demonic mind that decided that rape and domestic violence could be classed as pre-existing conditions and therefore make the victim ineligible for healthcare? Evil. This is the injustice that cries to heaven.

Who among us does not have a pre-existing condition? Ever had acne? That's a pre-existing condition. Had a C-section? That's a pre-existing condition. As are acid reflux, anxiety, and obesity.

Shame on Congress. Woe to the Republican party. We need prophets, not profits.

Richie Brace

I'm not sure if this will work. This is a Richie Brace, just like the one I got today. It's a custom orthopedic ankle brace which, the technician told me, was invented for my problem. My problem has a long name with initials - PTT - maybe post-tibial tendonitis or something like that. It's basically what happens when you get old and have had no arch in your foot and weak ankles all your life. The ankle bones are misaligned and instead of your leg to foot being perpendicular, you wind up at a bit of slant, which makes walking painful, difficult, and very tiring.

I had instant relief. The test will be when I go back to work on Monday and work a 12-hour shift in a factory with cement under the linoleum (heavy equipment - it's a wafer fabrication plant; we make magnetic heads for disc drives for computers).

As so many people are abandoning LJ, I suppose I should come here, too.
