Dems talk up health care

“And people are going to have to take better care of themselves,” she added. “We cannot afford all the illness that folks are bringing on themselves. … We need to start working on that, myself included.”

Sorry to disabuse you, ma’am, but you won’t have to pay for it if you’d just stay out of  my business. I pay for it now and am quite willing to pay for it in the future. What I resent is not being able to pay mine because all my money goes to pay for everyone else. To obtain health insurance for myself will cost me upwards of $1200/month! My average medical expenses paying out of pocket is less than $100/month. Which is the better deal?

In addition, their healthcare plan demands that people do certain things to be able to receive the best care; things I may not want to do like lose weight and give up smoking or coffee or any number of other things deemed unhealthy and things I might enjoy regardless of their supposed ill effects. And what happens if I refuse to do those things? Well, there are rumors that it means I will receive substandard care even if my health issue is unrelated to any of those things I refuse to give up.

And another in addition: Why would I want to live longer? To work longer to pay taxes that pay everybody else not to work? That’s what the working class of the U.S.A. does folks. It ain’t the government paying for it, they just manage the money.

This one where I began a post about my grandson learning he is bad? Yesterday I was given a little more information. It seems the child and her family have moved away since this episode: back to Somalia.

I suppose that makes them some sort of experts on who is bad and who is good by virtue of the color of one’s skin?

I’m so tired of the fascist/liberal rhetoric that allows some to be castigated while others are revered by virtue of race or doctrine rather than the actions that result from those doctrines and call it equal rights or fair. Where is the equality? Somebody show it to me please because I can’t find it.

Does it surprise anyone?

It doesn’t surprise me. You know, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan (along with other conflicts too numerous to name) might be the physical manifestations of global conflicts but there are other aspects to these wars that just aren’t picked up on as part of the BIG picture… at least not by many. Ladies and gentlemen, we are really in a world war. The way war is waged may have changed but its a war nonetheless.

The United Nations failed us in 2001 and have continued to fail us. Now, the European Union fails Britain. Is this one world government setup starting to look as kooky to everyone else as it does to me?
