    to Obama, I'd appreciate it.  Seems to me this was hashed out in the senate so if I'm correct, the real racist is probably some pale white guy that thought it would be a stick in Boner's eye to have a "Tan Tax".  Mr Orange may not use tanning booths.  I'm not sure you'd get a color like his in a tanning booth.  I have no idea because even though I'm pale white guy, I'm also one who has had skin cancer and I have no plans to go through that again, but I get a full body scan twice a year.  My only complaint is I have to strip for a woman.  I guess I know how it feels for a woman to need to strip for a male obgyn.  Don't hit me, I know there might be a few other inconveniences that I'm not getting.  A skin biopsy isn't as invasive as a vaginal probe.  But it is uncomfortable non-the-less.  Last time it was two women.  They are ganging up on me!!  I'm hoping for three next time (in a few weeks). /snark

      You get Orgy!

      Seriously, skin cancer isn't the same as having your every orifice probed but it is not to be trifled with.

      There is no right way to do the wrong thing!

    •  I know how you feel about having full body scan, (0+ / 0-)

      but I had to do it for a man. I am a woman.  Not comfortable either. I have tons of moles, all over so they had to take pictures so they can compare them year after year and see if any have changed.  To many to keep track of.  So far no cancer, surprising since I had alot of sunburns as a kid, grew up on a farm and worked in the fields so I got burned alot.  We didn't use sunscreen then. But I am surprised about Yoho, I have met him, he represents my district. I didn't vote for him, but we got stuck with him anyway cause he had alot of money to spend and the other two guys, a dem and an independant didn't.  Cattlemans association is big here, and he is a former veternarian, so they supported him big time, as did the Tea Party.  My district is unfortunately overrun with republicans and Tea Party people.  I am surprised cause he seemed a resonable man at the time, wasn't talking nonsense, said he supported keeping Social Security the same, which was what was on the mind of the mostly senior group who was there when I met him.  I am sad he has joined the crazies.  Maybe it is a contagious disease, they get to Washington and they catch it.
