Thursday Blahs

Not feeling it today, so a quick recap of Fox News main page.

  Romney wants to increase energy production, and that's a good thing.  If he can get unleaded gasoline back to 30 cents a gallon, I'll be sold on his plan.  Obama is agin' it, which tells me all I need to know.  Drill everywhere, drill now, that's my mantra.  We'll have enough unleaded gasoline when we're running it down ditches to control weeds.  Until then, we're not producing enough.

Janet Napolitano is being sued by her own people over her immigration policy.  She should be tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail, but that form of political expression has fallen from polite society.  Damn shame.  If more politicians were tarred and feathered occasionally, it might encourage the others to pay attention. 

The Stupid Party is tempting Hurricane Isaac to come ashore and ruin their convention.  I was listening to the Dennis Miller show, and he proposed that they conduct the whole convention on Skype.  They could do the whole convention in about a half-hour and show that they're serious about saving money.  Donate everything they don't use for the convention against the national debt.  I mean, c'mon, is the outcome of the convention in doubt?  Why bother?  Romney could still give his speech and look like he's partially serious about saving  money.

And finally, if you're old-folks, the government is going to penalize hospitals if you show up twice within a 30-day period.  Old folks shouldn't need to come back to the hospital.  That's the position of our government.

That's today's news, folks.

"So, which would we rather have -- a hospital readmission or a death?"said Sunil Kripalani, MD, a professor with Vanderbilt University Medical Center who studies hospital readmissions.

Stupid doctor, that's the reason for the rule -- it helps fix Social Security, and the bad guy is the hospital that is a business.
