Probably would have done exactly the same thing. We bought a car company, then we continued the No Billionaire Left Behind campaign.
Then we decide lets spend more money. =)
I stumbled across this quote the other day when pertaining to the Current Health Care Bill
"you have a house, you have an unpaid huge mortgage, you have huge credit card debt which is more then what you make a year just in interest, you are
making less at work as the years pass by, your spoiled kids want more money out of your credit cards, your wife has expensive habits, and now you
decide that you want to ...buy a porsche because it is a good idea"
(I'm all for health care reform, but this bill is crap.)
Health Care Reform is necessary, but why ruin people who already have a decent insurance policy. Do I think that the government should provide some
health care, Yea, at the #ing bare minimum, and those people should have to pay for it as well. Health Care is a service, and in this country most of
its cost's comes from peoples in ability to just take care of themselves.(Poverty contributes a lot to the not being able to take care of oneself as
well, I believe its 70 percent of all health care cost are from Smoking and Obesity.) But to say I should get to see the same Dr. as the bloke down
the Road that makes 350,000, because its my right ? No, he pay's his rich Dr. Lots and Lots of money to take EXTRA care of him. Do I think we should
help people who can't afford it all together? Yea but when there's the 60 Billion dollars spent every year on Health Care Fraud. Why not address
this key issue ? Why should preexisting conditions matter ? Toss all that with the fact that the price of most items used in the health care industry
are outrageous , the price of pharmaceuticals being ridiculous
( My Epilpesy med is 400 a month for 60 tablets, cost me more than 6 dollars a day to keep me from having seizures), and the FDA being a bunch of
crooks, and finally the BLATANT corruption in Washington when it comes to dealing with these issues.
Honestly, Did you know that ole Donald Rumsfeild is making money off these over hyped potentially dangerous H1N1 Vaccines.
But, Hey, looks to me, this guy is making money off of it too.
Kinda serves his purpose to hype them up eh ?
I've always had the impression if a Politicians lips are moving he's lying, but this man started preaching "Hope" and "Change", # I figured I
give it another shot. I ignored key warnings that I KNOW I shouldn't have, of , and voted for the man, cause HELL YEA I wanted "Change", But,
Look what has happened ! Whats changed ? What major pressing issues has he fixed that he promised ? At the beginning of office all it would have taken
it takes is him to run his mouth to sway some public opinion, get rallies out of the common people, who so vigorously supported him and his campaign,
to pass legislation to undo much of Bush's bull#, go against, ALL THE THINGS he talked about the "Clintons" doing and yet when he's giving the
chance to help give our Freedom's back with the simple stroke of the PEN, and opening his mouth, he does nothing, but spend money, to help the same
rich guys Washington has been in bed with all along. Then says " Well, uhhhhh, it seems, spending this much money, was kinda ... well its a bad
idea" HIS MOUTH HAS DONE NOTHING BUT WRITE CHECK'S THAT HE CAN'T CASH. Why ? Cause instead of finding those Real Americans, who believed in
"Change" and wanted change, He brought the same old Washington with him. He picked up where George W left off.
Now I sit here in the Middle again, watching the same old #. Failing to realize what the real problems are here. We again got Democrat vs Republican,
with obviously no real Americans interest's at heart , still pointing fingers, passing legislation that takes care of there old College buddies, or
Old friend's of there family, and all the while while their both whittling away piece by piece the country and Freedoms that our Grandfathers before
Grandfathers before Grandfathers had shed blood, fought for and put there lives on the line to conquer so we could have what every born Man & Woman
desire, "To be Free, and Independent"
"It serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration....agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false
alarms; kindles the animosity of one....against another....it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption...thus the policy and the will of one
country are subjected to the policy and will of another."
George Washington on the Political Party system.
I realize we tend to not listen to our fathers, but in this case it would seem essential.
Vote them All out in 2012, ALL OF THE SENATE, and a great majority of the House. They are so out of touch with America, what you guys just did, was
let people who have very little idea, of how hard it is to work a 40 hour week, and put food on the table, pay the bills, take care of the kids, and
pay for gas. They make OVER 100,000 DOLLARS MORE THAN THE AVERAGE AMERICAN, for doing nothing but cause problems. You know whats the kicker ?????
They got the best health care you can buy..... FOR FREE!
NO MORE PARTIES FOR 2012.
