I know we should be proud to be free citizens of a free country.
But when I see stuff like I am seeing on tv, about the possibility that social security checks might not go out next month.
And its all due to the fact that the right and left are all a bunch of hateful, uptight, never worked a day in their rich, daddy handed it all to me, I went to Harvard or Yale lives.
My father and my father in law, both labored and I do mean, real back breaking, life threatening, body aching, lungs full of coal dust, underground coal miners.
And now, to see them and others being treated as pawns in the games of the chess players!!!!
Makes me ask where our pride went.
We pay more attention to what dress Lindsay Lohan wore to court, than we pay to healthcare.
I have a friend on Facebook, who had this article about how Obama lied about his mom having breast cancer and not having health insurance.
And that he was trying to shove his plan down our throats.
I told her, be glad if you have health insurance and thank God that you arent one of the ones struggling and suffering and going sick or injured because they do not.

    The country is a mess, I agree. And politicians do not deserve the quirks and benefits that they have been given. But, bottom line, the politicians are doing what their constituents tell them they want. What constituents want in their own states impact the country in ways that the individual states don't always consider. So if we want change, bombard our Senator's and Representative's offices with telephone calls. Get friends and relatives to do the same. Make your voice heard! The input of the constituents impact their voting record. That is politics, and that is not so evil. :o)

    Healthcare is a mess because society is a mess and welfare needs to be reformed. There are too many individuals on disability that do not deserve it, which drains our social security and keeps those who seriously need disability benefits from getting them.

    Pre-existing conditions is the most horrible clause in healthcare. It helps no one. Illness worsens without proper care, leading to higher cost care, which drives healthcare costs up to compensate for those who cannot pay for their care, and everyone eats the cost in the end. (Except those who don't pay taxes.) However, every able bodied individual should be obligated to caring for themselves, obtaining health insurance (which should not include pre-existing conditions and should be affordable) and also be responsible for the consequences of not taking good care of themselves. Social responsibility is a very touchy subject.

    Far left, far right, whatever. I am a healthcare provider that takes care of people from all walks of life, right, left and in the middle. I think that people are generally hard working but if given and easy way out will take it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, the easy way out sometimes hurts the masses. emoticon
