Vision, Mission, and Strategy


Hillbilly Politics

We have Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum for presidential candidates. Nothing we can do about it, so now what?

Well, I must say I’m looking forward to an Obama presidency. He’ll begin immediately dismantling everything capitalist in the nation and start the quick march toward socialization. We’ve been on a slow march until now.

Now, you might wonder why such a thing excites me. Well, it mostly won’t affect me. I’m older than the Obama voters and I could sit back and collect what all the youngsters are going to be working for but think they’re going to get free. Think of that, all these youngsters taking care of the old folks just like kids used to do for their parents in the olden days before Social Security and the New Deal. Only they pay the government to do it for them. Nice of them, huh?

When gas prices soar higher and higher, I’ll be sitting at home, hardly ever go anywhere anyways now so it won’t affect me all that much. Heck, I’ll be living better than the kids who’ll be paying my way, won’t I? Isn’t that just swell?

Yep, I’ll get free healthcare and a monthly handout for being old and decrepit, sitting here watching the news about how bad the youngsters have it, trying to work long enough to pay the tax bills for all the free stuff. Maybe I’ll shed a tear or two for them on the way to the bank to cash my checks… that is, if I don’t get direct deposit for them so I don’t waste the gas money going there. I guess I’ll have to remember to shed a few on that day of the month, instead. Must be GREEN, you know? I suppose I could walk the miles to the bank but that might cause my disabilities to act up and send me to the hospital. Since I wouldn’t have to pay the bills for it, I guess that wouldn’t be too terrible would it?

Nope, I think it’s going to be a fine thing having Obama for president.

    Heh, wait until you are on “free” medicare..you will need the part D for drug coverage and the medicare supplement also. This will run you over $2400 a year. Oh, and don’t worry, a visit to the doctor is limited to once a year, at least in my case. This replaces the
    $3000/year insurance the employer couldn’t pay for.
    Don’t dare get sick in this country. Enjoy your tax-funded retirement! Our kids pay? They will be paying off the national debt for generations. Yeah, let’s do away with the ‘New Deal’, there is no reason why us
    Americans should be like the Europeans and care for the elderly. Do they deserve it? Naw, let the octegenarians work til they drop. We owe them nothing, even if they were the greatest generation.
    C’mon, HB, there is no conspiracy..think about it:
    sadly the left and right fear and loathe each other equally and assign blame without thinking. That is the sad part. If the other side wins, life is meaningless.
    Why has it come to that? 🙁

    BB, I’m not retirement age… yet. I do quaify for AARP membership if I want to pay them for it. But I could qualify for disability and at my age, it’s a thought considering I have no health insurance either.

    Why has it come to this? Because the Democrats started it long long ago and has now culminated in what we see today. Everything is backwards and the finger pointing has become nauseating. BDS doesn’t help anybody, except to make a scapegoat of one person to shield everyone else.

    BTW, I didn’t say there was a conspiracy. How can there be a conspiracy when they’re upfront about it?

    Yeah, they’ll be paying for years to pay off the national deficit but they would have paid that anyway. Can you imagine what would have happened if Gore or Kerry were in office during these times?

    You could take out one of those Medicare Part C plans (Secure Horizons), but then you’d be up a creek if you had to check-in to the hospital. Sure, you can see your Dr. for $5 (as long as he’s in the plan) and a specialist for $25-$30 (as long as your Dr. agrees)… just don’t get sick and have to spend any time in the hospital!

    You’ll still need your Part D coverage (runs $25-$60 a month depending on the plan). Just don’t use it! If you spend too much money, you’ll hit the donut hole and have to pay everything out of your own pocket.

    Gotta love this country!
