Freedom ain't free... Someone always ends up paying for it
Yesterday I had a conversation with my man Daddio911.
Of course it was about the President and his administration.
He is totally against Big O and he thinks he is leading the country down the wrong path. He thinks that so far his policies have done nothing but hurt the country and it will only get worse.
Well, I will be the first to say that I do not agree with everything that the President has done.
I disapprove of the bailout.
I think that he should stop going to all those foreign countries apologizing for shit that happened before he came into office.
I think that he should stop trying to please every damn body in the world and accept the fact that most of the people that he is trying to please could give a hot shit about him.
I think he needs to focus on the problems here in this country and let other countries either destroy themselves or come up with their own solutions to their problems. (I.E. the Middle East, which includes Israel.)
Anyways, that is what I think.
Me and Daddio911 were talking about taxes. You know the one talking point that all die hard Rethugs talk about. All Rethugs cry about government spending, and taxes, but where do they think the money comes from that pays for all the resources that they take for granted?
Where did the money come from to pay for those wars that all the Rethugs applauded for?
Do they think all this shit is free?
All the money that has been borrowed from other countries, how do they expect it to be paid back?
Don't they realize that that when people don't have health insurance, they go to State Operated Emergency Rooms to get health care and the prices are always triple than what they would pay a normal health care provider for?
The only way to alleviate that problem is to provide health care for people that want it.
Who is going to pay for it?
We are, with taxes.
In the long run it would be cheaper, but most Rethugs are not thinking about the long-run. They want to keep all their money and resources to themselves.
All my man was talking about was Big O is going to tax everything and that the money will not be going into shit we need, but it will be going to misfits who do not want to work and people that are only looking for a free ride, or another Rethug key note address, Illegal Immigration.
I do not like paying taxes, and I will probably bitch about paying them, but if I got to pay an extra .50 on a gallon of milk, I don't think that that extra .50 will cause me to default on my mortgage.
It trips me out how most Rethugs are quick to call someone that does not agree with them unpatriotic.
Well I don't know about you, but I cannot think of a more patriotic thing to do than sacrifice a little for the country you claim to love so much.
Don't get me wrong, this is not a pep rally speech supporting the Dumbocrats. I think both major parties are full of shit, so I do not throw my allegiance behind either one.
I think that anybody that follows blindly behind one person or one idea is a damn fool.
I like to have options. I like to have choices.
Another thing just hit me.....
Another one of Daddio's pet peeves with Big O is his lack of experience.
Riddle me this....
If you have never done a job before, how can you be expected to have experience in that job?
Has any elected official ever had experience in the job they were elected to do before they actually got the job? Has there ever been a President that had experience in being a President before they were elected President?
Did any of you ever have experience in your current profession before someone took a chance on you and gave you the opportunity to gain experience in your current profession?
Things that make you go hmmm....
