Tea Party Patriots

I found this little news item most interesting...

Poll: Tea Party Patriots Most Popular
Thursday, 17 Dec 2009 09:32 AM
By: David Patten

The Tea Party Patriots conservative grassroots movement is now more popular than either major party according to a major new poll.

According to the new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday, 41 percent of likely voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party Patriots. That compares to a 35 percent favorable rating for Democrats and 28 percent for the GOP.

The stunning conclusion: If the Tea Party Patriots were a political party – it is increasingly shifting its emphasis in a nonpartisan political direction – it would be the most popular party in America.

The results suggest voter antipathy toward both major parties is more profound than initially recognized.

It also indicates that the left-wing bloggers and talk hosts who have consistently derided the Tea Party Patriots throughout the year with an obscene “tea bagger” reference are out of step with the American people.

“This is stunning to me just because it shows how angry Americans are – the Tea Party movement [is] more popular than both major parties,” MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said Thursday. “The parties are dying.”

NBC chief political correspondent Chuck Todd observed: “Candidates that align themselves against Washington and Wall Street are going to have good success right now in 2010.”

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll also reflected the results of other surveys that have shown President Obama’s approval rating dipping below 50 percent. The survey states only 47 percent approve of his job performance. Also, only 39 percent say they have confidence in his goals and policies.

Todd described it as “a bad poll for the president.”

Slight Cancer Scare

Had a slight scare the other day. Monday night I noticed a pretty good sized swollen patch on my neck where it meets my shoulder area. Too close to the lymph nodes for my liking... mom was a little concerned also.

I called my cancer doctor and got in to see him Thursday afternoon... well, actually his P.A.. She wasn't to sure about it and called him in to check it out. He wasn't real impressed... he said I'd have to do better than that... *lol* He said he couldn't see my lymphoma jumping to that extent so quickly. It's been on my right arm for 10 years now and hasn't traveled anywhere else.) But he wanted to have an ultrasound done to be on the safe side.

So they sent me over immediately to get that done... the girl doing it finished up and said she wanted her supervisor to look at the pictures before I left. I figured that meant one of two things... she wasn't seeing anything and thought she was doing something wrong, or saw something severe. Thank God it was more the first. She could see the huge lump but the ultrasound was not making out any mass. So it's not a mass! Very good thing.

The P.A. called me later to let me know that whatever this is... it doesn't seem to be cancerous. She said if it doesn't go away or gets worse, it wouldn't hurt to see my family doctor, they would have a better idea of what else might be causing this.

So I wait...

I did crash around 5:30... it was like being in a semi-coma... I kept trying to come out of it every so often but just couldn't do it. I was pretty much out until about 8:30. Then, of course, I was up most of the night. *sigh*
