A lot has been going on for me right now and I have yet to weigh in on this health care bill whine fest. It seems to me that the only people I have seen whining about this bill are those who a: have health care so wouldn’t even be affected, b: have Medicare and are already enjoying socialized medicine, or c: could care less about the health care aspect and just want their country back from the bad black man who stole it while being not only some sort of an illegal alien, but Muslin and Christian all at once.
We have tons of people showing up to these “town hall meetings” screaming, yelling wielding signs that shows either some crazy statements about how Obama wants to kill your grandma to him being Hitler. Now I don’t care for Obama either, but that is for totally different reasons and a whole other story. But some of the things these people are saying are so ridiculous they make Sponge Bob sound like a Rhodes Scholar.
Do these people realize that crying about tax dollars being spent on abortion is a moot point since Medicaid has been paying for abortion for years? And the last time I checked those dollars came out of tax payer pockets, so oh well. And even if this were a point that matters, what gives them the right to dictate who gets what? Aren’t they arguing that they don’t want the government dictating their health care to them? I guess it is ok for them to dictate others care though.
People are also trying to make light of the racism issue revolving around this matter. The fact that they are opposing Obama is NOT what makes them racist. The fact that they keep somehow hearkening back to this founding father bullshit that we all know kept blacks in their place is the problem. Where in the hell were these freaks over the last eight years while Bush literally shred the constitution and used it as so much toilet paper?
We have had eight years of lies, corruption, mismanagement, out of control spending and war. And now these people want to talk about how the government is out of control. These are the same idiotic people who sat around while our government headed by George Bush did nothing for five whole days as people drowned died of heat and starvation in New Orleans. Yet, now want to cry about how they think the government wants to kill someone.
And to top this off with something that speaks to the stupidity and hypocrisy of these people. On Fox Phony News, they showed the lady named Katy Abrams who was at a Specter town meeting talking about how they woke a sleeping giant with her. She said that she and others like her had the right to voice their opinions and no more than a minute later she said that she was angry that people are calling her and having the nerve to voice their opinions to her.
WHAT?!? She can voice HER opinions but no one else has the right to voice theirs? This is the ultimate hypocrisy that you get from these idiots. They constantly talk about how every country with socialized medicine is so terrible and doesn’t work yet, somehow these countries aren’t out in force protesting the fact that they HAVE health care. And I don’t see them all coming here to join our dysfunctional systems.
The problem as I see it is that we have too many people who have health care who could care less about those without. But, the minute their insurance denies their life saving surgery or whatever, they will be on television crying and begging for someone to do something. Don’t we see that everyday? At least I do. And why doesn’t someone tell me what socialized medicine those people are a part of? I never saw Medicare or Medicaid deny anyone the care they needed. So it couldn’t be killing someone’s granny after all.
