Hello all! Well there was (just in case you noticed) a new blip in my normal, quiet, political existence! I will name it a lifus interruptis.. or perhaps a shit happens episode; but whatever it was, my last blogging was .. actually my last blogging for quite a period of time. I will say that the loss of my dear Sister and traveling companion affected me in many ways, and I was sort of sucked into myself dealing with loss (ps – it takes longer than you think, no matter how you try to intellectualize it). And of course as sisters go, I believe we were closer than most get an opportunity to be; having been roommates for many of our Senior years.
Anyway, now I am back and with brains and fingers working together with eyes and opinions bouncing around looking for a way to get out! I am once again committed to the daily review of left wing baloney and BS – after all, what’s more fun than picking apart left wing political philosophies! It’s a wonderful thing: that is of course unless it’s yours that’s being picked apart!!
And I salute the Washington Career Politicos to continue to chaff, gaff and help us laugh. Thereby providing fodder for the grist mill. Which of course ends when the mischief making is self destructive to our union!
And lately, one could spend days counting the bad ideas spewing from Washington! Don think so? Well consider how many States have been reviewing the rules to withdraw from the “United” States as a precursor to an all out battle for the heart and soul of our beloved country. Who can blame “we the people” having suffered through all the Obama mischief making to void the constitution and make our country his kingdom!
All the government freeloaders finally outnumber those that prefer work. Yep those folks who don’t want to be in charge of their own lives; who want to be told what to do, what to think, what to eat….. you get the drift! The welfare Zombies. It’s just to bad that the freeloaders just don’t get it that, when to working people stop working there won’t be anyone to provide largess for the freeloaders!!
You think there may be a bit of rioting? Pissed off people when the stuff runs out? Duhhhhh!
Well, the subjects are not exactly following the Yellow Brick Road! And I like to think that it’s because most everybody gets it! That the Yellow Brick Road is not the the road to Oz but the road to ruin! And there is no magical healthcare fairy that will take care of everything without enslaving us all….. (slavery = to reduce to or as if to slavery :subjugate)
So, I say there is no free lunch! And this healthcare “deal of a lifetime” is a path to slavery! As, once the government takes over; we can expect; leaks of our private information, additional changes to the “healthcare” the government provides; invasive ideas to “protect or help us” that the bureaucrats think up that won’t need either Congressional or our approval, bureaucratic red tape for tests, operations, etc., some government representative butting into your eating, sleeping, drinking, and sexual habits and it will all lead to our personal (between you, God and your Doctor) information somehow leaking out, available to anyone…
A computerized system secure? NOT!! How often do you think someone, somewhere hacks into the government website. I would say maybe regularly???? And don’t you think those same someones, might just hack into health records? Especially if they could harvest an unlimited list of social security numbers!? (if you answered NO to either one or both of these questions, I have this little piece of prime property on Mars that’s for sale!!)
Obama wants to lead us down the red brick road to Communism and if we follow, we will be like …. Russia is? Don’t their lives suck? So I ask; why? What is the point of changing what has been working perfectly well for the last 200 or more years? How many other countries can say that they have had the same orderly system of democracy for that long? Duh….how about none!
So Mr Obama and all his left wing loonies can go jump in a lake! We should think of some other way to help “citizens” if they need health care. And have good methods of weeding out the non-citizens to send them to seek their care in their own countries. I am tired of all the bleeding hearts that say we have to work and then pay for people who aren’t supposed to be here. If you are not a citizen, you need to go home and let your own country try to figure out what to do with you!! Or duh? COME INTO THE US LEGALLY!! What kind of citizens do we get when the first thing that they do when they are arriving is BREAK OUR LAWS!! Not a good start.
And while I am on this topic, how about re-opening Ellis Island or some similar location? We spend more time shopping for our pets than we do reviewing the people that we are allowing entrance to our country! And somehow, the bleeding heart liberals have convinced themselves that checking out if someone is carrying a disease, or a criminal, or whatever is a bad thing. I say – NOT IT’S NOT!! You lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas. If we let law breaking, violent offenders in we should have our heads examined!
So I say in a country that vets EVERYTHING, it’s time for us to start protecting ourselves from those that have no common sense!! Be they liberal or conservative – no common sense? No getting elected! No matter how cool, or handsome or ethnic, or whatever. AMERICANS WAKE UP! LET’S ROLL!!
As a Senior Citizen, it has never, not once in my entire 65 years occurred to me that we would be making a Presidential choice between a Conservative Republican and a Marxist Democrat. And if you had asked me even 4 years ago, I would have guffawed at the thought.
But, here we are. It has become evident that the “great” Obama has turned out to be a “Manchurian Candidate” and the only difference is that Obama is conscious of what he is doing, and the “candidate” was at least a brain washed pawn. Sadly, today the only “brain washed pawns” are the people who believed the “hope and change” line that pivoted Mr. Obama into the Whitehouse. Not the communists mind you, but the hopeful, and optimistic Americans in all walks of life that put their hopes into this President.
And, now I realize that truly, many of our young Americans have been brainwashed into believing that a basically communist social and governmental system can right all the wrongs, take care of all the problems, feed all the people without sacrifice, and not have those that were in power abuse it!! What a big order, and of course a farce! It is, I believe, unforgivable and cruel of their educators to allow this. However, I also know that it is not surprising that this “collective” philosophy is the rule of the day because teachers “unions” are powerful, and all teachers must conform. And given the reduced interest in such things by most Americans of any and all ages, (And that is one of the saddest statements that I have made.) “The great experiment”, as John Adams called the USA, may after all succumb to the rule of “the path of least resistance”.
So while I can still remember, I have found myself more and more saying, “it used to be”, “in my day”, “it wasn’t always” and a litany of other such remarks. And I work hard to instill the love of freedom in any and all youngsters that listen!
