oh, well, got a feeling that the dems might find that they have a few more supporters in virginia...
virginia, like most states had a pretty big deficit. they had to find a way to cut costs somewhere, and well, one the place they decided to cut was
in the area of retired teacher's health care. so, well, anyone who retires after this year will not be given that benefit...
oh well, welcome to the real world all you civil servants!! seems that those benefits that you were promised are not set in stone either.
someone suggested that hey, why don't we just make socialism optional, and not force it on anyone. (why they said it I ain't sure, I don't see any
difference in what obama's wants to do in changing healthcare than what they've been doing.) he seems to be doing the same old same old to me,
opps, the cost of healthcare has gone through the roof again, so let's expand all the programs in an attempt to help a small portion of those that
have been cut by the loop. not so much as to actually help all of them, but just enough of them so that the effect of having that many uninsured or
under insured people don't upset the apple cart!
well, here's the problem with this idea...
one's person's socialism is another person's "tax incentive", "safety net", whatever....it seems that the only thing that they agree on is that
hey, if one positions ones self in the right position, one can make alot of money if one can predict just where the money will flow to next. and I
bet this is partly to blame for the rockiness of the stock market. they are shifting their money around, trying to anticipate where the next big
check is going to, and well, just when they think they got it, some idiot in washington opens their mouth and says something that totallly blows that
idea out the window and leaves so much doubt as to what the government is doing that opps, everybody is scrambling picking up their marbles and
heading for their mattress again.
for those of you who say you think that the system is just fine by you....you have no problem supporting the truly needy, and then proceed to portray
those who are complaining as the lazy failures....well, sorry, you seem to be okay with supporting the lazy failures, since anyone with very little or
no money is recieving healthcare by programs being supported by your taxmoney, and you claim to think all is just hunky dory! the people you don't
want to help out are productive citizens, fellow taxpayers. heck, some may have even helped subsidize your college education that gives you that nice
big paycheck! you like the system, as it is..
with it's under 7,000 dow average, it's let's bail out the fdic before they can't cover your government guarenteed bank account, the government
sponsered luxury vacations for the big wigs of wall street, and on and on....
what the heck, my husband and me should just not file taxes this year, what the heck...let them come and sieze our house, lol....at least then, they
would have a complete package, they just about own the bank that owns the note on it anyways! and well, as far as I am concerned, me, my husband, our
children will be paying for our home 20 times over probably through higher taxes, higher inflation (if not hyperinflation), higher fees on the
federal, the state, and the local level....
maybe we should just pack up our marbles, save up more of our pennies, have our kids do the same, and well, in about a year's time, start migrating
south....what the heck, there has to be a place somewhere south of the border that is saner than this place is!!
this whole mess is just one big scam designed to redistribute the wealth, not down to us average working taxpayers, but to the most weathy, wastefull
people on the face of the earth! of which, most of it happened while bush and his fellow republicans were in office...but by all means, blame the new
guy in town when your ira hits rock bottom!
I heard newt himself say that there was a way to provide affordable healthcare to every american.. if the danged clowns would just get their act
together and work it though. the clowns don't want to work it through, there's just too much money to be had with the way things are!
and, I don't care if you are talking about socialization of pure capitalism...when the mindset of the powers that be are what they are today, well,
whatever system we came up with would soon be exploited again by the get rich quick crowd, by the creators of fraud, by those who just don't want to
put in a honest days work for an honest day's pay, and by the corporate powers that see that extra million that they can earn this year as just more
power that they can have over others...
it's not the system that determines the success of any system, it's the hearts of the people within the system...and well, there's just too many
hearts that are just filled with darkness! too bad the north pole is just so danged cold, I'd go there and live with the polar bears, but then,
it's that cold that is keeping the masses from flocking there more than they have...
oh, well, somewhere on this planet they has to be a nice little area that's better than this!
