WARNING: Political Banter Inside!

I don't normally go all political on here because I'm still paying $250 weekly to a therapist trying to recover from the last time I got all "crazy republican" on my blog and basically got called an ignorant poo-poo head in a wonderbra. BUT, even knowing I will regret it....what the heck! I'm going to travel to the right wing fantasy land I live in and say....I am quite disappointed in the Health Reform Bill that Congress passed yesterday.

Especially the "dependents can be 26 before they are dropped from their parent's coverage" part of it. IN ALL CAPS: THIS IS WHY I MARRIED A 40 YEAR OLD. Seriously? GROW UP, you scruffy, good-for nothing, lazy, living for the $1 draft beer night at the local bar and your pack of Marlboro Reds you paid for by stealing out of your grandma's wallet, scrubs that are my age and you WONDER why I laughed at you when you asked me out on a date? YOU DON'T DESERVE Health Care....unless you get off your sorry ass and go work at the local Burger King. That is sooo much more noble and attractive than being lazy and fat. I don't really care where you work, just stop being so worthless.

Okay, I'm done.

Before, you call me a Sunday School Hooker and in a huff go to the right side of your screen and click the UNFOLLOW button, don't worry;I'm not going to bash the President or Congress. I'm only going to say this: if you don't like or approve of how the government is being run, stop sitting on your couch stuffing your face full of bonbons and complaining about the icky color of Nancy Pelosi's hair and actually do something about it! OR, if you are excited about the Health Care Reform, then have a reality check and realize the bill passed by the thong of an overweight stripper.....which means by a wee-little thread! And you too, need to get more involved in your political beliefs rather than just going around in the OBAMA t-shirt you bought a Urban Outfitters because Justin Timberlake had the same one on in US Weekly.

I think young people don't get involved in politics like they should. No matter if you are left winged or right winged, know what you believe in and do something about it! FOR NOW (yes, that was a socialist with it) we live in a democracy ran by the people, for the people. Be a part of those "People" and know the issues, decide where you stand and put your time AND money towards that. Exclamation point...infinity.

Below is a link to the 1776challenge. This is a political action committee of young people who know what they believe, know they are vital in the future of politics and are ready to make a stand.

Now listen kiddies.....I think I was pretty Fair and Balanced, right, right?? I don't want any anonymous comments telling me I need to wax my upper lip and to stick it where the sun don't shine. I might just have to call that fancy lawyer I saw on a billboard on the way to work this morning and sue you for slander....I mean anything is possible, he did get that lady $250,000 for her car wreck!

I'm stirred up too, but this helped me. And reminding myself that I don't deserve healthcare either helps.

Thanks Jen for the link to our website. We started 1776 Challenge because we're not going to wait for some politician to come save us ---- we're going to fight for our country's future.

The 1776 Challenge is simple: raise money to elect more CONSERVATIVES to Congress by having ordinary Americans donate $17.76/month (or just 59 cents a day.) Only 500 people donating $17.76/month will raise $100,000 in one year!

You don't have to be rich and powerful to make a difference! Small donors pooling their money together will defeat liberals!

Something from God's Word to consider when trying to be convincing:

Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.

The wise of heart is called discerning, and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.

Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.

The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious and adds persuasiveness to his lips.

Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.

Proverbs 16:20-24

I'm no fan of the new law myself, but I believe age 26 is the cap because that's the age at which most students complete graduate school. It's an easier pill to swallow when you consider that it will allow students to finish their educations without worrying about health insurance as opposed to providing for the lazy sloth on Mom and Dad's couch.

JPO said...

So true on the Master's. I completely agree with that if the insurance companies are allowed to require full time student status. Otherwise, the system will be taken advantage of.

I think the challenge for me is the sense of entitlement we have as a nation. I believe in smaller government - and that I am not "owed" anything from the government except that they pave the roads, protect the borders, deliver the mail, and establish guidelines / regulations in necessary industry when called for (such as the FCC, or FAA, or FDA). This is the land of opportunity!! You can do what you want, and achieve your goals if you work hard enough! You can be a millionaire if you want. But guess what? For every success comes multiple failures -- that's the downside of opportunity. Why, then, do we punish those who achieve (like the fact that my tax rate will soon approach 40%!!) and reward those that fail (giving them health care? Welfare? etc.)? Listen -- providing to the needy is not the job of the government - it's YOUR job. It's MY job. Jesus told us to love our neighbors - charities, churches, families, and the like have the responsibility to care for their neighbors -- not the government. Jesus didn't say, "pay more in taxes and let the government do YOUR job."
Americans are abdicating our responsibilities to a government that will willingly become your sustainer -- a sustainer that, in exchange, will dictate morals, finances, and religion to you. It's socialism people -- thru and thru.
The reason we have a health care issue is not liberals. It's irresponsible, checked-out, passive and apathetic Christians and citizens.

High-five, Buckethead. I couldn't have said it better myself.
