The above post details hidden reasons as to why NZ's Prime Minister resigned. What they note is all true and I have even mentioned some of the things he has ignored above that post right here in this thread. He has received a lot of heat from both sides as the article says which is true and from overseas as well. It just became clear to more and more people on both sides. So it is a good reason to leave early. A false image means everything to this man. Image is all he is about. Look to the damn flag and his obsession with that for reference as well as dismissing blatantly obvious real problems while only caring about the flag debate. All true. The fact he did actually mention that was his one regret without mentioning real problems is a sign where his real priorities are.

It's #1 on my To Do list for 2017.

The soon as the latest government shutdown attempt is resolved, one way or the other, I will be doing it.

I really believe that scores of millions of people are going to be leaving the country within the next 8 years or so - and the soon as I perceive a trend of people of leaving, I will join it.

I intend to get a passport. I live only 120 miles from a free country.
I wonder where these Americans will head? Canada? I hear they are not keen on them coming into their country. In fact immigrants are not favoured in many countries right at this moment for obvious reasons.
If Donald Trump pulls a William Howard Taft and caves in to the oligarchs, the future of the working class in America is to work 12 hours a day, six days a week, then come "home" to barracks-type housing, 100 (wo)men to a single large room - after the oligarchs abolish the minimum wage and replace the income tax with a per-person head tax.

Obviously they are not going to take such a massive decline in their living standards lying down - even if it means emigrating to the Middle East and converting to Islam (the African-Americans emigrating to Africa instead); remember that the ancestors of today's Pakistani Muslims were low-caste Hindus who converted to Islam to escape the Hindu caste system.
I have a doctor appointment in January in Austin, Texas with an autoimmune specialist. No insurance accepted. I booked my flight tonight. I have never been so excited in my life to go see a doctor. I got the lab slip of what they want tested here from whatever doctor will do the blood draw and forward the results to her. It is a very lengthy list. Some of the stuff on there has never been tested at all, and from my understanding should have been.

It's wild. I'm freaking excited about a doctor visit and getting a vein popped with a needle. bizarre. I've researched this doctor to absolute fullest that I could before booking an appointment. I have faith in this one, she suffers from one of the same autoimmune issues I do, so she at least will grasp what I live with. Hers is in remission, so I am praying so hard she can help me get mine there. Well worth the airline flight, hotel, and car expenses if she can.

I just want to feel good again. Have energy.

Despite what ideologues like Galen think, NPR's Morning Edition is a very sober show that doesn't make shit up.

You do not have a popular leader when what he does causes both sides to mass against him.

Apparently NPR does make shit up or can't be bothered to figure out what is true.

Well, without having a clip of the segment Odin was listening to you are just speculatively bloviating.

Nx

Here it is in text form, and the source of, "he is/was popular" is not NPR but The Guardian.  This took less than 5 minutes to research.  Just saying.

Good luck!
In an hour and a half I will be having a colonoscopy. Looking forward to going home as soon as they cauterize whatever caused me to gush out blood from my back end for hours. This is the first day in 3 days i have been clear of blood. I hope they find it n fix it so it does not rip again n freak me out like that. I threw up everywhere n had two tachycardia attacks as i thought i was bleeding to death. I easily could have. Hope it all goes well.

The worst part of the colonoscopy is the lead up to it.

The process itself is OK (they give good drugs).

Beavisbutthead
Yeah the worst part is feeling like i am shitting out lava right now. Next i cant sleep in this noisy fkn hospital. Next i am very hungry. Least i am not pouring out blood. That was a hell of a lot. It even scared the nurses at the 24 hour clinic.

Yes looking forward to those drugs. Even more having it cauterized and food n rest. Oh it will be wonderful.

Wow, scary!  Get well soon.
Thought I would put the verdict right here for all to know. So, I have had my colonoscopy. I actually found myself watching the screen as i wanted to see what the thing of evil looked like which caused me such a panic. It turns out it is (drum roll) a large ulcer which burst. There is a white scar over the top of it. What caused it? Dunno! They took samples and are trying to determine what could have potentially caused it to form. They are testing me for all sorts of things like chrons disease, IBD etc. But it has healed itself over. They say there is no need to cauterize it. But if bumped again it could reopen. BUT at least i know what it is now and i know i will be ok. I will be getting something to eat soon and a nice drink and the results will go to my gp. They say to wait a couple of hours to see if they give me the thumbs up to go home. Anyway I am just relieved that it was not anything serious. Amazing that something like that can make someone bleed that much! Anyway yeah. Just see with my gp what the results are, eat and drink something. I am not feeling groggy. The procedure went well and hoping i can go home soon.
Thanks everyone for your well wishes. Very much appreciated! Been a rough time but it is all turning out ok. Ah what a relief.

Thanks. Turns out it was a large internal ulcer which burst. They took samples all round my bowels and as i was not groggy and otherwise fine i was allowed to go home. I just got in 13 hours sleep. I have not had a proper sleep since the ordeal started 4 days ago. I am sore and weakened but happy i am alive and home. I have been instructed it could burst again and if so go to hosp immediately. I also have to go to the doc next week to see what the rest results show as to what caused the ulcer. They mentioned crohns disease whatever that is but could be other things too. But will see next week and will get medicine or advice from my gp.

Whew. Good it was not something really severe. Hoping it's not Crohn's. That can literally be a pain in the arse.

Yeah you never know when that much blood is pissing out of you so thought best to get it checked out in case bleeding continued. It did for quite a long time. Yeah not worried if crohns. Better that than bleeding to death or other things i was concerned had happened.
I did the definitive act of abstract expressionism. I did a yellow background, all with one brush, with the idea that I might try to put something upon it. It has some interesting texture, so I stopped while I was ahead.

I understand that some painters have made big money with such paintings, only on a larger scale.

Of course, I'm not sure of what I am expressing. But it is abstract.

Glad to hear that you are recovering.
Taramarie, hope you are feeling- & getting- better
