I Couldn’t Help Myself

Today, I was reading a favorite blog and I saw a comment by a well-meaning but slightly confused (I guess) reader that he still didn’t have Health Insurance because he couldn’t afford it without the subsidy and he refused to take the subsidy; feeling that his neighbors needed the help more than he.

From someone else I might have been angry but I have read comments from this reader before and I don’t think he means to seems as shallow as he does. I believe he is sincere and yet somewhat misinformed.

So of course I; in my usual arrogant way; took it upon myself to explain why I felt he should adjust his thinking about the Affordable Care Act and get on board the train to Freedom. Then I thought; maybe everyone should see this and here we are.

So here is the comment I made in its entirety with only the names removed to protect…….well no-one. Sure was sounding great up till then; Huh?

What Is A Republican?

 

boehner 2Perhaps it’s time we face the truth; determined by the actions of the Party involved and people who represent that Party; that Republicans are many things. Capitalists; Theocrats; Authoritarians; and Morally Corrupt.

The thing that Republicans can no longer be said to be; is Americans and this is why:

Remember A Few Months Ago?

I stated that the Passing and implementation of The Affordable Care Act was a good first step towards Universal Health. I said that I believed that the cost to employers and their unwillingness to co-operate with The Act would push us ever further in that direction.

I received several comments disagreeing with my opinion; which is cool; and I don’t mean to say that this article will magically make you agree with me but you must admit that if the GOP are seeing it and admitting it; I just might be right.

If so then Bravo. The achieving of a good, Universal Health System is the only good reason I can see for a bill as complex as Obamacare has needed to be.

The need to do the “Capitalist Dance” is an obstruction to Justice for all but by “doing The Dance”, My President will force that clear and obvious answer on even the blind Republicans.

So please read this article. It is short, but long enough to contain the undercurrent of excitement in Mr.Willies words.

I give you; ” The Next President of the United States of America”

If we have any sense.

But then; that is always a debatable question; isn’t it? 

I don’t support her just because of the issue addressed here but because she insists on

BOLD-PROGRESSIVE-POLICIES (even though she isn’t running as of now)

What we need is BOLD-PROGRESSIVE-POLICIES; NOW!!

What we need is Elizabeth Warren

The first 10 amendments to the Constitution make up the Bill of Rights. Written by James Madison in response to calls from several states for greater constitutional protection for individual liberties, the Bill of Rights lists specific prohibitions on governmental power.

Wilson being awarded

“(Officer Darren) Wilson won a commendation this year after he subdued a man who was found to be involved in a drug transaction, and he was honored in a ceremony in the Town Council chambers”

Man do I have questions about that sentence but for now let’s just pretend that I don’t and that Officer Wilson did a good thing; and was awarded for it.

That seems Ok until you learn “The Rest of the Story”

The Government’s Pyramid Scheme?

Ampyramid foodong the things that I have lost faith in over the years; are the U.S. Government nutritional standards we were taught as children.

Not only have they changed far too often but my family and friends and the families of my friends have been dropping like flies from heart disease; cancer; and a whole plethora of other ailments and conditions and at least some of them were strict about such matters; being older; serious churchgoing folk. Flag waiving Republicans and Roosevelt Democrats.

To The President of the United States

presidential seal

To The President of the United States; The Honorable Barack Hussein Obama

Dear Sir,

I would like to discuss the issue of the Keystone Pipeline with you.

It is a terrible feeling of near helplessness that overtakes me when I consider the progress of this soul-destroying project and the legislation (recently passed) that allows it.

It seems there is no end to the degradation and humiliation that the US Government is willing to allow, to the indigenous peoples of this land.

When; in the 21st century; it becomes necessary for a nation of indigenous people to state their intention to defend to their literal death; their land from the encroachment of Capitalist interests; after that indigenous nation has been the victim of such interference and genocide over the course of the history of this country; it seems to me that the people of these United States need; for the sake of human decency; and for the sake of their own ability to steer their own future and not become victims themselves (if self-interest is the only motivator that will work); to stand up and scream “NO!”; “STOP!” “This is not who we want to be anymore.”

We claim to care about the people of America. There are no more American people than the original inhabitants of this great land. There is no dignity in allowing this terrible crime. There is no way for us to come away with anything but bile in our mouths; the smell of burned flesh in our nostrils; and the guilt of the dead children on our conscience.

Every American should be up in arms about this danger.

Every blogger should be running similar articles; to flood the web with our indignation at the very possibility of this happening.

Everyone should be writing, calling, e-mailing, beating on the doors of their Congressional Representatives; Senators; and you; yourself Mr. President; to express their horror and disgust at the possibility that this destruction might become reality.

What do you think Mr. President?

Are you still shocked by such actions?

I hate feeling helpless. Don’t leave us to helplessly watch the destruction of an honorable people for what amounts to almost zero gain for America.

The only benefactors of this Keystone Pipeline are the huge corporations involved.

Mr. President; Veto this bill

I was recently enlightened to the problem of the South Dakota Child Protection Agency; taking away the children of perfectly good Native-American mothers and adopting them out to wealthy white citizens. Not just one or two kids either. This is a running operation; essentially using these women to breed for the wealthy whites.
Now why do you think; a wealthy, white, resident of South Dakota wish to “Adopt” small Indian children?
To nourish them and give them the advantages of wealth? Hmmm
Not likely.
You know what they say. If it walks like a duck…
Well this time it walks like a big old slave breeding operation.

siouxAnd this “Keystone Pipeline” walks like a crime against the people of The Great Sioux Nation and a sin against humanity and our own dignity.

So President Obama; Veto this bill.

It will be back with the new Congress as Mitch promised.

It must not pass; Sir.

It  must not pass; anymore than we would pass a bill that would cause the destruction of our African-American or Hispanic or Korean communities.

It must not pass because if it does; when it is done; and the long-term effects are understood; the American people will look back upon your Presidency and The Congress with shame and hatred.

A stain upon our honor and a stain of blood upon our map and our nation.

One reason we elected you was the sense that you were a compassionate person who empathized with “We The People”.

Now is not the time to back down or give in to pressure from the murderous corporate masters.

Now is the time for “Bold Progressive Moves”

Veto this bill Mr. President.
