American Everyman is the Latest Victim of Neoliberal SSD “program integrity” Tidal Wave

The Wave of Integrity

Over the years of doing this I have learned that the hardest things to write about are those that are the most personal. The things that lay bare who I am and what I have become. How I live and how I lived up to the expectations I set for myself all those years ago is a point of contention for me. While I am proud of this work, I am not proud.

We are all impacted by social conditioning whether we want to admit it or not. Though no rational reading of my work over the past 9 years would lead anyone to conclude I am a follower or a conformist, I am not immune to the narcotic lure of the American Dream and the promise it holds of a better life just beyond the horizon.

As a result I am not inoculated against the shame of the failure to realize that dream or the dread that comes from seeing an awful nightmare replace it just beyond the skyline.

The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza is Either Ignorant, a Liar or Both: Something Is Seriously Wrong With Hillary Clinton’s Health

by Scott Creighton

In an article titled “Can We Just Stop Talking About Hillary Clinton’s Health Now?“, Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post makes an extremely outrageous claim that I thought needed to be addressed in that it is either born of incredible ignorance or dishonesty.

“The simple fact is that there is zero evidence that anything is seriously wrong with Clinton.” Chris Cillizza

The “simple fact” of the matter is, there is PLENTY of evidence showing something is SERIOUSLY wrong with Hillary Clinton’s health Yes, the coughing fits (which I covered yesterday) are part of the available evidence. They are the outward symptoms of a deeper problem which have been caught on tape for nearly a year now, as best as I can figure it. No, she was not suffering from “allergies to pollen” as her staff and her minions try to tell us and NO CHRIS, she doesn’t just have a “cold”

For all we know, Hillary Clinton has been avoiding doing press conferences for the past 270+ days because she was afraid she couldn’t complete one without coughing up a lung and lo and behold… yesterday she tried a short press conference and had to excuse herself because… she was coughing up a lung.

That’s evidence Mr. Cillizza. It’s outward tangible evidence of a long-standing health issue.

But it’s not the only evidence, nor is it the best.

To that end, we have the statement from Hillary Clinton’s own doctor, Dr. Lisa Bardack, who is treating Hillary Clinton. She herself stated that Sec. Clinton is currently taking blood thinner everyday.

Hillary is on this medication because she has now suffered from three clotting events which are quite serious Mr. Cillizza. I know because I have had three myself and I take the exact same medication she does.

Today I Turn 50 ಠ_ಠ

by Scott Creighton

Now that I am officially middle aged, there are no words of wisdom I can impart upon you that I haven’t already written over the last 9 years running this website except to borrow a bit from an old George Carlin quote:

What do you find when you look inside a 50-year-old cynic? A disappointed 25-year-old idealist.

Today there will be no balloons, no one yelling “surprise” and even my Facebook page seems to be mocking me on this, my day.
