born in Illinois. 5 year Navy veteran. Married for 26 years (not counting the first five when we just cohabited. 4 kids, 6 grandkids, 3 brothers 2 living, 2 sisters 1 living, a mother living, a father not living. 1 dog a labradoodle, and a current cat population of 2/6 (If you count feral kittens ) I've done a lot of jobs in my life, from shill at a carnival burlesque show to making medium caliber ammunition. I built inkjet printers, embedded computer boards, restored and repaired both cars, motorcycles and electronics. I read, write, and do arithmetic (albeit poorly) My wife claims that I have more useless knowledge than anyone on earth and resultingly no one will play trivial pursuit with me anymore. I do play pinohcle but due to my inability to cheat I don't win very often. Recently disabled I turned to Open Salon to re-engage my writing bug. Update add one cocker spaniel to the list and maybe just shoot me.

Dick Cheney Gets New Heart

Rate: 25 Flag

Dick got a heart transplant.  At age 71.  Did he shoot the donor himself or did he have someone else do it?  Is he going to use the old one as a doorstop?  

I wanted to write something a little tongue in cheek, get a little laugh going but, the more I thought about it the angrier I got.  At 65 a lot of people are told that their age is a disqualifier for this kind of surgery.  Who paid for it?  Was this a part of his "government health care"?   That stuff that doesn't work and that would destroy our nation if it were given to the common people?

I've spent three years trying to get on social security disability and this millionaire asshole can get a fucking heart transplant.  

I wonder, when they opened him up was there actually a heart or was it just a fist with an upraised middle finger.

Bobbot, it is extremely irritating and frustrating to see anyone of Cheney's ilk at the head of the line for something as critical as this while others are told to take a hike!
I felt the same way. Disgusted.
Maybe this one will make him human. ~r
Transplant? He never had one to begin with. This is his first stab at becoming human.
Sorry, Joan H, I'm either an idea thief or a mind reader. But we agree on the hoped-for outcome, sarcastically.
Millions of people in this country will go to bed hungry tonight, if they even have a bed to go to. Should I feel bad because I have food? Am I then a monster because I preserve my life as best I can?

There are times, bobbot, when I agree with you wholeheartedly. This is not one of those times. Your envy based hatred is that of a very sick mind, made so by a sick society.


"Is this the best that we can do?"
I try not to be too unkind, but this man has been such a Darth Vader! I also think maybe he will be injected with some humanity-it is his only hope of redemption! R
On occasion hatred is quite a justifiable emotion.
Actually, I'm just pissed that this man, at an age when the majority of people who need new hearts are denied, was able to get one and at the taxpayers expense. Words spoken or written in anger are much harsher than the actual thought to. There is no obligation to agree with me to comment or to be a friend. God knows that an opposing view can often lead to a change of heart in a reasonable person.
Jan and Bobbot; legitimate outrage is warranted. This guy is deserving of nothing more than a cell and three rancid squares a day.


-R-
I am sure Cheney took the donor on a hunting trip and shot him in the face to get his new heart because he never had one in the first place.
I had all sorts of comments last night. I did not want to wish anyone will but hope maybe he got a good heart that will make him a better man.
It's all about money and who you know..:(
HUGGGGGGGGGGGG

"I've spent three years trying to get on social security disability "

I'd be happy to swear on penalties of perjury that you're totally disabled.
Gordon, so nice of you to drop by. Thanks for your offer but I think I'll stick with doctors.
My sincere condolences to the family and friends of the donor.
I agree with you and I don't think you have a sick mind. I thought long and hard about why I found it so repugnant and it's not his age that makes me feel that way. I know people in their 70's who have much of value to offer, the same way you have much to offer. What sickens me is that they gave the heart to someone who's not beneficial to humans, or even someone neutral and benign.

Second to that is my anger that huge sums of money are wasted on those who do nothing more than make others do the real work. Those who have actually been productive in their lives are tossed away when broken because we've wasted so much on so few. Did he ever build anything, plow anything, fix anything, clean anything, serve anyone? He's a high priced nothing and as long as he lives money continues to be wasted on him.

A precious organ was transplanted into nothing more than a well heeled animal. The waste of resources on his type is a poor investment. I'm saddened that perhaps a good older person who brings joy or sets a good example for those around them may die because he got that heart. I'm disgusted because it's morally wrong.

I'd be just as repusled if they'd put that heart into an evil dictator or an alligator. In fact, they did.
Pisses me off, too. BIG time. Especially given that the recipient of a good human heart being famous for being an evil, HEARTLESS asshole. I pity the donor's family.

How did they find a donor with a heart that was also two sizes too small?
I wish him well...because I heard the surgeons were Democrats! R
Oh, I think that this will be the cause of quite a ruckus in the next couple of days. Timing was convenient to hit on "slow" newsdays when it won't get the amount of scrutingy--at least until tomorrow.
As my wife and I were just talking about on this: "some people are more equal than others."
Dammit.
How sadly reconfirming it is to see just how mean spirited and nasty liberals can be. No surprise, but sad to see how fetid ideology can trump basic humanity. Go in peace.
Class privilege is the one constant in American Society.

Read Marx.
Nasty liberals, of course, are a reaction to nasty neocons. It's blowback.
For the record, I'm not going to pretend I'm a saint. I'm just a human being and I dislike vicious barbarians of any type. I would have felt the same revulsion if they'd given Bin Laden a heart.
Waste of a good heart.
He is just getting all tuned-up to be Mitt's running mate.
Romney-Cheney 2012
one of my fondest hopes is to see the story of cheney's fraud against the american people told while i am still able to take pleasure in it. sad that the only thing that takes people like him down is often their own overeaching arrogance--not our system of government's ability to prosecute them for their crimes.
In effect the Bush-Cheney combo, through scandalous open fakery were instrumental in killing thousands of US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and totally wasting billions of much needed public funds to reward political Iraqi thugs and rapaciously greedy US corporations to no good effect whatsoever. That either of these outrageously defective humans should arouse any sympathy in anybody for their personal problems reveals that some people have, at minimum, the most peculiar sense of decency conceivable.
[r] "use old one as a doorstop", love it!!!
I choose to believe that Gordon Osmond is an ineffective by-product of someone's odd imagination.
Cheney on the other hand was real, & killed a lot of people. I understand before this transplant he had some kind of pump, & registered no pulse.
I'd love to know : during that period, was he technically human ?
In fairness to Cheney I would have to consider that the raw quality of merely being human is no blanket justification for approval as humanity alone has proved to be less than commendable as an evaluational characteristic.
bobbot, with a new heart he can now be taken to The Hague to stand trial, with GWB, as a war criminal.....no ill health excuses
His true identity has been revealed, DICK C. FRANKENSTEIN, we could replace the rest of him in 24 hours with all the arms and legs that will be blown off soldiers in the next day or two...
What a bunch of schmucks!

Where are ally your "all we need is love" adages now, you silly people!
Almost everyone commenting here in such a mean- manner has, at one time or another, admonished us all to "care" about others; to "love" them; to be kind to them, and all that good stuff. Yet when it is someone whom you dislike, you sing a much different tune! Ya bunch of hypocrites! I guess you all used up your love and caring and kindness on yourself, huh? Or is it "love everyone as long as they have the same outlook on life that we do?"

You all disgust me beyond words........

;-(


"Is this the best we can do?"
Let's try that without the typos....

@skypixie0

It's much better with the typos. That conveys the mindless fury with fiercer punch at people who dare to despise a mass murderer.
Oh there is so much I want to say about this but Joan (and you) have said enough.[for now] He is still on the evil list!
There is more evil on the left period. Hate and contempt are alive and well and living in Utopia.
Clinton bombed Bosnia,Croatia and Iraq-as well as the Sudan. There was strong evidence he forced himself on Juanita Broderick and Catherine Whilley amongst others.

England confirmed WMD's as Did Sadaam himself.
When a madman says he has a gun,bullets and wants to use it on you do you ignore him? What if he has a history of using it on people?
Hussien ignored UN charters, if those are not enforced then, let us do away with that anti-american farce that pollutes prime Manhatten real estate.
Okay Jay you want to lie about stuff the use your own damn blog. At least Clinton didn't undertake two wars of aggression at an untold cost in lives and treasure. He didn't hand out million upon million in no bid contracts to his buddies either. What the hell, a guy can't poke fun at Henry Potter without you tight assed murderers going insane? Have you met Gordon? he lives in Brazil and has all kinds of tax breaks and free health care and he talks just like you. On the WMDs, not one scrap of physical evidence exists other than some unused empty shell from before the first Bush went into the middle east. I think Rush is on misquoting some one again or just making it up as he goes along, You've had your one, back the next one up with facts (not some shit that orielly, hannity, or limbaugh "said") or I will just delete you on sight. Too bad you couldn't have given that international war criminal your own tiny, useless heart.
All I can do is quote the Wizard of Oz: "If I only had a heart." He's still a cyborg.
@Jan,
If anyone here has exhibited "mindless fury" it is those who've just contradicted their professed "feelings of love and caring for others."

I have no quarrel with those who despise Cheny and his ilk; I despise them myself. To imply that my comment was/is directed at anyone for that reason is the most blatant and untruthful comment of all.

I clearly indicated that I was taking issue with the hypocrisy and mean-spiritiedness of many of the comments made here. They indicate a heartless attitude towards another human being that the worst members of the GOP would be hard pressed to match.

Your silly straw-man didn't work, Jan. You show the same disdain for truth as so many of your fellow "sweet, good-hearted" associates do. Exaggeration and hyperbole DO NOT win friends for you lot. It makes you look foolish for thinking that others will believe you when you do this.

In the old days I could debate with leftists with great pleasure. They were among the most carefully accurate with their information and honourable in their style of debate. You modern lot are just a bunch of schmoes who couldn't tell the truth if your life depended upon it.

I don't give two shits if you or your ilk agree with me or not. But you piss me off right royally when you "disagree" with something only you have attributed to me and which I have not said. So go piss up a rope and suck the wet end, will ya?

I gonna close this one.
