Urgent: A Plea, Call to Action over Medical Collections Act

Stay with me here, there's some hope, a rainbow and some personal experience.  At the end is a call for action from voters that could save you thousands of dollars, even just in the next 5 years, depending.

I was reading the St. Pete Times when I came across the business section recently.  In a short story the headline stated "Medical debts may torpedo credit scores".  Tell me something I don't know.  For the last 12 years (yes, it started when I was a minor), I've been fighting with medical collections companies over my credit reports - not only in a few unpaid bills, but on paid ones as well.  They talked about the Medical Debt Responsibility Act.  Feel free to surpass the personal items to get to the legislation discussion.

Updated: "Go the F to Sleep IS Funny", Karen

Update below, looks like our lovely hypocrite can't stand the courage of her convictions.

I came across an article today on CNN that somehow managed to grab the headlines.  It was titled: "Go the F*** to Sleep" not funny.  Normally, it would just be an opinion, but Karen Zacharias managed to make the leap of the entire article that people who enjoy this book are abusers, while quietly dispelling that in a one off sentence.  (An example of her leaps is equating Lady Gaga's charity theft to sexual abuse by Bishop Eddie Long.) An excerpt: 
As the title suggests, "Go the F*** to Sleep" mocks the parental frustrations of trying to lay a child down to bed. Crass in concept and execution, this is an expletive-filled bedtime story intended solely for the amusement of parents.

Stolen Valor and InfantryFacts.com Is A Lie

Ah, the ever present internet has created another false prophet.  This post addresses the statements by InfantryFacts.com - his stolen valor of our service members and degradation of us measly little military wives.  I am not just a house wife though.  I'm a well spoken mother, military wife (twice over, including first one being infantry), daughter, granddaughter (twice over) and niece.  Though I wasn't able to join the military myself for medical reasons, I think with my surroundings I must bleed little American flags.  Even if we ran with his "I'm Infantry", he had to have been in the service at least a decade ago before all this started, then he had to re-enlist, against his conscience to have any semblance of current service members tribulations.  How does that make sense?  In fact, I have a pretty good idea who of who the actual creator is in Twitterland and have constantly had a problem with the lies and assertions from there too.  It's all ripped from conspiracy headlines, sometimes damn near verbatim from places like Above Top Secret.  Because it's becoming a pattern, I want to address it.

Lisa Lampanelli Cries Over Housewife's Comment (NSFW?)

Lisa Lampanelli just used gays for pay.

Okay, first - I know many of you are asking who the hell Lisa Lampanelli is.  If you've ever watched a celeb roast put on recently on Comedy Central, she's the loud fattie in the middle of the roast panel.  She's the almost 50 year old woman, that SCREAMS fake laughter to try and get cameras on her and laughs about her twat being so loose she can't hold a bucket of bolls of cotton in for a tampon (that was my joke, but you get the gist).  She laughs about the jokes about her doing black guys and being a sperm dumpster.  Her Twitter profile states "Queen of Mean".  Apparently, she's not only the court jester everyone points and laughs at, but she's also scared of a 27 year old stay-at-home mom.  (Me.)

Stay tuned below the jump to see how a 50 year old woman responds as a child.
