We need to print this petition out and nail it to Ted Cruz's face.

I signed it.  It might be the most productive thing I did all day.  Yesterday was chili day, so today was mainly toilet day.

Well, it's going to FarkUs. That'll get some views at least.

Also, if hasn't already been said, cancer can go fark itself.

I just wrote both my Senators asking them to at least fund the NIH.

I don't really care if the parks are closed or the Commerce department has to work with 1/7th the staff, but the NIH is too important to play political games.

Thank you. It's EXTREMELY important. It's like shutting down all the power in a city and us having to petition to get power to the hospitals.

kiwimoogle84: KangTheMad: I signed it. Your friend is adorable as all hell.

She is an autism occupational therapist, too.


Wow,. Give this woman a big hug from us.

Shaggydum80: Not to sound cynical, but is a petition going to do anything to convince a group of assholes that shut down government in the first place because they didn't want to give people government funded healthcare?


If it does nothing else, it'll create a record of how many people think this is unfair, and feel strongly enough about that opinion to put their name to something that's theoretically capable of changing it. And if it gets enough signatures in a short duration, the news media takes notice of petitions that grow quickly even if their intended recipients don't.

And yeah, your friend is young, white, female, and cute as all fark. None of which should be advantages, but we don't live in a perfect world, so that'll all help her get noticed.

/signed, told others about it, etc
//though, try petitioning the House, not the Senate
///the House is the group sitting on the CR right now

If it were only that easy, I'd be out there riding the stationary bike hooked up to the little generator with thousands of others to power that hospital. There is no way we can fund the NIH ourselves, they aren't allowed to go back to work even as volunteers if they wanted to.

Our elected leaders are dicks. All of them.

Thank you :) I'm sure that she appreciates every tiny gesture.

Signed it for two reasons:

1) There's a daughter who will need her mom.
2) Every human is essential.
3) She's pretty hot.

/okay Three reasons

//and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope...

///Four reasons...

Signed. Probably lurk too much, but its not like it costs you anything to sign it.

Signed.

All I'm saying is, you should give your friend the best time you can for the time she has left after that. And enjoy that time together.

F*ck Cancer

F*ck the Shutdown

Signed. Hoping for the best for your friend and her family.

Obama and the Senate and Harry Reid had the chance to keep NIH open and rejected it. I'm sure if you asked Senator Reid about your friend he'd say "If I don't care about a little boy with cancer why would I care about her?"

Does it look to you like Obama cares about cancer?
 
2013-10-05 07:58:30 AM
Don't worry, the Republicans will make sure she gets to go to that WWII Memorial.  Because that cannot be shut down.
 
2013-10-05 08:42:18 AM
Signed.

Best wishes to your friend.

In my opinion when there is a disagreement between two parties or individuals it isn't the fault of the one that is willing to compromise on some parts.  It's the fault of the one who insists on all or nothing.

Besides Obamacare as it stands is a slippery slope (and I hate slippery slope arguments) because it is the first time that a law will be passed in which the government absolutely requires that somebody buy something or be fined.

I do feel bad for your friend but honestly no petitions even if signed by half the population of the country would make a bit of difference.  Politicians only care about their income, their pension, and their ego.   And it's the ego part that is causing this impasse.
 
2013-10-05 11:11:18 AM
Signed.

Was going to leave a snarky comment but I thought about my wife and the 2+ years of crap and denials she got from the gov for her SSDI.

Try living on nothing.

Signed. I have no snark, just an awful teary-eyed sad. 'C' has taken so many souls away from me over the decades I have lost my ability to jest about it.
I am so deeply, truly sorry. If there is a fundraiser I will also take up that cause and link it all over the goddamned web. This is on my FB page as well.

Signed. Cancer is an evil bastard. Good luck.
