My children, my life, my family, my husband, my friend, my dogs. I know that they are listed, it would seem in order, but it's not really an order. They are each and every bit as important to me and I'm grateful for them all.
I would like the review be done as quickly as possible because the uncertainty is definitely troublesome. That being said, I support the Affordable Patient Act, it has done away with pre-existing conditions and as a cancer survivor, that is huge for myself and millions like me. Also keeping my son on our insurance plan until he turns 26 is another tremendous benefit. I have to say that the insurance companies have really taken advantage of the delay in implementation of the law because since the discussion has started in this country, premiums have gone up each year. Personally, I would love to see the Supreme Court decide that to have people across the board buy into private health insurance is wrong but that medicare for everyone is fine and take the profits out of the equation. That would be a home run for us as a country. The only reason for the mandate is to get all of us on the insurance roster so that it decreases premiums, if it was medicare for all with no profits to account for, our long term deficits would be lessened greatly, a boon to us but not for the poor health care insurance industry, I forgot about them, oh well, them’s the breaks.

Let’s see, how has the GOP done so far with solving the country’s problems? They all ran on a JOBS platform in 2010, once in office they have not done a single thing about creating jobs but they have done a bang up job in eliminating them. As Bob has stated so well, government jobs have people attached to them. By downsizing the government job force they are contributing to the unemployment rolls and taking vital paychecks out of the economy weakening it even further. Moreover, by choosing to treat the country’s debt ceiling and budgets as economic weapons, they are contributing to the further economic decline and also to the country’s deficit because all this economic brinksmanship costs the tax payers money. On a separate note, the GOP, by striking at different parts of the budget such as disaster relief or green technology programs and using those as pressure points to weaken President Obama’s plans to help the country is horrible because once you start digging, you find out that people like Cantor and McConnell are manipulating serious issues for their own political benefit. Cantor behind the scenes calling FEMA to expedite monies to his district, meanwhile publicly holding out for spending cut off sets, McConnell yelling about Solyendra and deals made behind closed doors, yet he has called the D.O.E for expedited loans for his own pet projects such as ZAP, a company with its own financial problems.

No, there isn’t anything that I wouldn’t tell my best friend. The only thing that I would not share with my best friend would have to be either, so shameful or so illegal, that I wouldn’t want to make her an accomplice after the fact, or that she would never be able to look at me the same way. But I really can’t see that ever happening because that isn’t who I am.
In terms of clothing choices, hair choices, man choices, I would and have always been honest with my best friend because that is the whole point of being best friends, if you don’t say the truth or get the truth, than who else is going to be that for you?
The whole relationship between best friends is based on love, trust and honesty. Much like what defines a marriage except for the sexual dynamics and what goes along with that. It’s a relationship that allows for fearlessness and feelings of safety. This relationship is very important and can never be underestimated of its special place in probably every person’s life.
