Now I'm back. Unfortunately, there is so much going on it's hard to start.
I could talk about AJ and Bobby but that was old news long before they were indicted. Hell, we all knew that was coming!
I could write about Obamacare but I wrote long ago that it was going to pass whether the people wanted it or not. Point of fact, the vast majority do not want it but why the hell would that stop congress? They(and I mean both parties) haven't listened to their constituents for decades. Why start now? That brings me to what I am going to write about, the tyranny of the minority.
Our government was set up to prevent mob rule. What has in fact happened is the exact opposite. Now even spotted owls have more rights than people. Why? because a very vocal minority of people wanted them protected at all costs regardless of the impact it would have on peoples lives. Does it affect me? No, I'm not a logger but you can bet your last cent that quite a few in the logging industry were adversely affected.
I may be pretty far to the right politically but have always stood up for minority rights. Perhaps not critters over humans but you get the point. Now we have our wonderful President and his administration forcing one very small minority to pay for another very small minority's health insurance. Speaking of which, we already were. News flash, ever here of medicaid? SCHIP? Medicare? The fact is, we don't deny health care to anybody, period. You may not get a Rolls Royce when all you can afford is a Hyundai but that is how the world works.
The trouble with writing about Obamacare is that nobody knows exactly what's in the bill. Kind of troubling that our elected leaders will be passing something that they have zero clue what it is.
I will say that there are some things that I truly want to see in this atrocity. I want absolute protection for people from their insurance company so that they can't be cancelled because they got sick. I want health insurance to be portable not just from job to job but from state to state as well. I want everybody to help pay for it and I do mean everybody. I want an affordable option for people that don't get insurance from their employer. I want the first subscribers to be all of Congress, the President, and all federal employees.
That being said, here is what I DO NOT WANT to see. Tax dollars paying for abortions. tax dollars paying for illegal aliens health care. As a matter of fact, unless it is a life-threatening emergency, I think that they should be turned away from our Er's(which if you didn't know, is their primary care provider and they never ever pay the bill for it). The provision protecting the so called Cadillac plans of the unions better not be in their (it will be). Death panels (they'll be there too in the form of a bureaucracy that will decide the best level of care for you). Only time will tell but I am willing to bet very few people are going to be happy with this boondoggle.
As always, I welcome your thoughts.
