While this is not strictly political, I can’t pass the opportunity to comment on this story:
Yes, this woman is having her size M (as in “Mama Mia”) breast implants removed.
Shela Hershey’s story appears to be a tragic one. Because the US does not allow implants of the size that she wanted, she went to a foreign country to have them implanted. Since the implant, she has had a series of infections and other issues that have provided significant medical challenges for her. After three months of trying various medical procedures, Hershey made the decision to remove the implants; a decision that will likely save her life.
First, let me say that we should hold Ms. Hershey in prayer. While she has made a tragic mistake, she is attempting to correct it. The only difference between Ms. Hershey and myself, with regard to dumb decisions, is that mine have not come to the point of nearly costing my life.
That said, I find irony in the final quote from Ms. Hershey:
“I know it’s going to be a lot of pain on me because I love to have them, but I realize that my family comes first and I love my daughter and son and they come first. Even though I love to have huge breasts, I don’t know why, I just addicted to it; I’m going to try to live without it. Hopefully I will be done then and be happy and just running around with my kids! Just have my back life, my life back!,” says Hershey with a wistful smile. (emphasis mine)
Ms. Hershey has come to the conclusion that she needs the breast reduction because her children come first. I wonder where the children came into the decision when she decided to go to Brazil to have the life threatening implants? Were her children dancing around her screaming “Go mom go!” I doubt it! Rather than say “I did something stupid and need to change,” Ms. Hershey now hangs her children out as supremely important.
Ms. Hershey, your children and their well being are always of extreme importance! It would be better for you if you kept that in mind prior to making your next selfish decision!
It’s obvious that Ms. Hershey is a liberal. No, I’m not basing that on the likelihood of her career options with size M breasts. I’m basing that on her ability to ignore her children completely while making a selfish decision and than alternately using them as a replacement for taking accountability for said selfish decision. Ms. Hershey is so decidedly a liberal that she invokes their mantra; “It’s for the children!”
President Obama led the charge to create the highest deficits and debt levels this country has ever seen. he did so using language very similar to Ms. Hershey’s i.e. it wasn’t his fault, she was addicted and in his case, it was George Bush’s fault!. With the implications of the November elections becoming a clearer reality, he has changed his tune. Lately, President Obama has begun decrying the very same debt and deficit that he lead to create. In the past couple of weeks President Obama has begun talking about needing to reduce the debt. In explanation for his desire now, for debt reduction, President Obama talks about not leaving debt for future generations. In other words, like Ms. Hershey, President Obama is unable to take accountability for his own actions and instead claims, “It’s for the children!”
I wonder if there will be a day that President Obama will change his stance on abortion policy claiming it is “for the children?”
Oh, By the way Ms. Hershey, you talk about looking like a “housewife” as if you are settling for something less than optimal. Trust me, as a guy who has an eye for such things, and as a guy who knows plenty of guys who agree with him, there are plenty of “plain old housewives” who turn our heads and it has nothing to do with their breast size! Perhaps it requires a certain maturity but intelligence, confidence and a little biting humor are far more attractive than any set of enhanced glands. I trust you and your children will enjoy you being a “plain old mom.”
