Health Care

I'm so tired of hearing about the people who do not have healthcare. I do feel badly that they have it bad. I just do not think it's their right that I pay for it. I will not apologize for that thought.

I pay a shit load of money to have care for my wife and son. ($1700 is a shit load btw) I get to go almost anywhere I want, whenever I want for care.

Lets say I agree that there are 40million uninsured. What happens when I want to see a doctor for a fever. I have to wait. Why? Because now 40 million more people are trying to see my doctor for something they would not have gone to the doctor for previously.

There is nothing in the Healthcare "reform" that makes provision to add doctors, nurses, clerks, receptionsis, etc.. Where will they all come from? Will they magically appear? of course not. Hence I will have to wait three weeks or more to get my fever checked.

Government has fucked up everything it's laid it's hands on. The roads are a mess. The armed forces are handcuffed. Medicare and welfare and social security and fanny Mae are bankrupt. Why oh Why do people think Government can run our health care well? I've not heard one person answer this question. Even when asked.

My thoughts on the Election Results

This great country of ours has spoken and elected a socialist.  One can only hope that this what our country needs and we will be better for it.  I am not a fan of Obama politically nor do I care for socialism, but I will support and respect our president because that is how I was raised.  If only the people suffering from BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) were as respectful in their disagreements with President Bush.  I hope that we don't have to read an article like this in four (or 8) years time about Obama:

Having said that, I refer you now to one of my favorite blogs that I rarely have time to read of late.  His post concerning the election outcome echos my thoughts and inspired me to post on my blog for the first time in way too long.  Again, my time has been put to other persuits (both fun; camping, building bikes and not so fun: work and taking care of the house) and not this blog.

David Mamet: Why I Am No Longer A Brain Dead Liberal

Click the title.

I really enjoyed this article. Since he is a liberal, I do not necessarily understand his thought process, but his conclusion: "How will we, mere human beings, work it all out? ..... We just seem to."

exactly. It always works out in the end because this is the greatest country with the greatest people.

Bob Geldof and GWB

This is a nicely written article.

If more people could get past Bush Derangement Syndrome and just listen to the guy the whole country would be better off.

BHO and Rezko

Barack H. Obama might be more friendly with Rezko than he likes to admit.

Some of this article has loose connections and a lack of evidence in a similar manner as oh so many hit pieces on GWB, but it's still interesting to note BHO is not as squeaky clean as he likes us all to think.

Must Read

Freedom's Ring Hard to Hear in Nanny State America

Please read this. It speaks to me in a way I wish I could express.

Matthews Wimps Out

MSNBC's Chris Matthews has apologized to Hillary Clinton. When will he apologize to Condoleeza Rice for how tough he is on her? No outrage from Gloria Steinem about that?

I agree

If Huckabee wins the Republican nomination, just roll out the red carpet for whichever Democrat wins. Even if it's Clinton. I think a Mormon would do better than an Evangelical Minister. I imagine the media mentioning his vocation all the time. Equating it with the vast right wing conspiracy, not saying it out right but coming right up to it.

Congressman claims Racial Profiling

This story is interesting and sad. The reporter and the congressman may be correct in assuming that the police pulled him over for "driving while black". However they only suggest half of the solution to the problem. That the police must change their tactics. I suggest that the other half would be for blacks to obey the laws that the police are trying to enforce. If we all attempted to obey the laws we would not get pulled over. The data does not exist anymore that details crime by race (it was deemed not useful and/or insensitive to keep this data) but when the data was kept, blacks committed more crimes. Therefore they will get pulled over more. Perhaps this is putting to simple a spin on the situation, but it seems like a good place to start.
