Christmas Wishes From Washington.....
"Bend over, Bitches. Got something for ya here."
My mood today has been bouncing back and forth between depression and homicidal rage like a ping pong match.
Like my old man used to say, "Don't know whether to shit or go blind".
The sunzabitches in the senate made it over the 1st and most important hurdle in cramming a health care takeover up the collective ass of We the People early this morning.
I got home from work last night and stayed up to follow the voting. Yes, I started drinking as soon as I walked in the door. You can't watch that kind of shit without alcohol.
It's obvious that the majority of the US citizens do not want this shit.
But there they were in the middle of the night, voting on a bill that will fundamentally change this country. And one that almost no one has even seen!
"Most transparent administration ever." - Kiss my skinny white ass you bastards.
Senator Evan Bayh hasn't answered a phone at any of his offices in Indiana or Washington DC for at least the last 3 weeks.
Representative? Not hardly. If they are just gonna do whatever the hell they want, who needs to hear from the peasants?
I better insert a disclaimer in here now- I'm asking questions and making guesses about what we may see in the future in response to this.
I don't endorse, advise or advocate anyone to do anything.
Got it? This is just supposition and thinking. That's it. Don't start anything stupid.
OK. Now that we got that out of the way.....
When are these people gonna be made to realize that there are consequences for treason of this nature?
There isn't a whole lot that these guys haven't taken over in the last year and there isn't anything that you can control people with better than gaming their access to healthcare.
The majority of citizens have consistently been against all of this but it doesn't seem to matter to the whitehouse, congress or senate.
I just don't see this ending well. I may get all loud and talk a lot of shit about this stuff, but folks like me do just that. Get loud and talk a lot of shit.
It's the quiet ones these guys better worry about.
Between my active duty and reserve time I spent 10 years in the Army. When I was in Germany, I could have walked across the border & defected to the DDR if I'd have wanted to live in a, Socialist Workers Paradise.
I'm just one of millions who have spent time keeping our country safe from Commie MoFos who never expected to see them emerge right here at home.
My guess is that there are some who are just not gonna be content to bend over and take this latest affront.
Last night 60 senators made this personal. And if this gets pushed through as planned, on Christmas Eve?
I'm seeing someone making it way more personal for a few of those senators and congressmen who pushed this crap through in ways they never imagined.
They don't answer the phones. They don't return letters or email.
They just don't seem to care.
So why should we?
Nope. I just don't see this turning out well. The persecution of the 3 Navy Seals, the intelligence agencies, leaving our troops hanging for months while deciding whether to support them or not & on and on.
Did you forget how the Obama administration wanted wounded Veterans care be covered by billing their private insurers?
Believe me, Vets haven't.
You may have read this before. It's part of an old piece of paper some dead white guys wrote a long time ago.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Here's something another old dead guy had to say about things like this -
“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.” ~ John Locke
I'm thinking that some folks ought to start thinking about these sort of things.
