Just a rant

I was all set to do one more post on the Obama Czars today
and rant about that. Then a couple of things caught my
attention while watching the morning news on a local channel.

I’d like to say up front that the following is my opinion.
Nothing is written in stone, things can change, and you’re
certainly welcome to disagree.

The first was the big deal that was made over the fact that
the first lady wore shorts in Arizona in the summer. Is this
something newsworthy? Am I the only one who really doesn’t
care?

Now we are being told that this administration will pass a
healthcare bill we don’t want and can’t afford. If we don’t
agree with the politicians we are insulted, ignored, or told
we’re going to get this bill whether we want it or not. One
politician will say there were no death panels in the bill
and another will tell us it was taken out. We are told one
day that the public option isn’t necessary, the next that
we weren’t told that and it can’t be passed without it. We
are told abortion won’t be in the bill while others say it
is in by omission. We are told rationing isn’t a part of
the bill but then told anything omitted is covered.

It started with us smokers. We got all the bad press and
the good lies thrown at us and the rest of the people began
to believe it. We got kicked out of most public places and
taxed heavily. Everyone else said we deserved it. Well get
ready kids because you’re next. Are you a few pounds
overweight? They’re coming for you next.

This healthcare bill has nothing to do with reform and
everything to do with a hostile takeover of our healthcare.
Elderly people will not get the level of care they now
enjoy, our private insurance will be useless, there will
be rationing of services, smokers and drinkers will be
treated like lepers, abortions will be publically funded,
and it will ensure illegal aliens get the best care
available.

There will be bike paths built and farmer’s markets
funded. There will be taxes on anything that could be
considered fattening. We will be told what to eat and
how much we can weigh. It will also raise our taxes.
Is this the change some Americans voted for?
Comments are always welcome.

    Now now now Cruiser If you develop high blood pressure then they might outlaw blogging rants as being unhealthy

    Of course reading the ongoing comments on youtube about the bridge shooting are getting my BP up and giving me a headache

    Ilcantar,
    They might ban blogs that don’t agree with them,
    but my blood pressure is still good. Sometimes
    it just doesn’t pay to get worked up over the
    comments.

  3. It is hard to follow politics and keep your blood pressure down!

    DavenportElection,
    Seems that way, but whoever I vote for rarely gets elected anyway.

    Get better candidates. The problem is that we vote for those who will punish those we envy or take stuff from others and give to us.

    ElectionDavenport,
    I keep telling the wife that one of these times I’ll get it right.

    Nitrous55,
    It appears the majority don’t see a problem. For the
    life of me I can’t figure out why.
