Small Talk About Big Issues

Touching Base with Common Sense

I Am So Proud

As my eyes opened this morning, I knew today would be historic.

I bounced out of bed, threw on my clothes, kissed my wife good-bye, and headed for Waffle House to read the morning paper and drink far too many cups of coffee.  Walking through the front door of the restaurant, I was greeted nicely by the staff, “Good Morning!”  “Hey, ya’ll,” I replied and headed for my favorite seat.  By the time I got my newspaper opened, my steaming, hot coffee arrived.  From there…my historic day went downhill.

“219-212”

“Healthcare Reform”

“Passed”

My stomach ached, my heart sank, my head hurt, my bad back flared up, and my wallet suddenly reduced in size.

But…I am so proud!  I am proud that Bubba and Cooter are finally going to be covered by Health Insurance.  I am so proud that now every illegal immigrant will get Health Insurance at my expense.  Oh, I know Obama promised that illegal immigrants would not receive healthcare.  BUT with Obama’s Immigration Reform getting ready to follow on the heals of his Healthcare Reform, there will be no “illegal” immigrants…14 million people living ILLEGALLY inside the United States will suddenly become “LEGAL” and ELIGIBLE.

Yes, I am so proud that now the only doctor I will be able to afford will be the TOP graduates from the highly acclaimed University of Louisville’s (and other esteemed university’s) School of Correspondence Medicine or from the prestigious ACME On-Line School of Medical Science.  The good doctors will refuse the insulting government-supported, government-ran insurances and go to a “cash only” basis.

I am so proud that now more of my hard-earned income will be eaten up in new taxes.  Although I’m bursting with pride over paying taxes both when I earn my income and when I spend it, now I can increase my pleasure with the 19+ new taxes or tax increases included in Obama’s New Healthcare Reform LAW.

I am so proud that I spent seven years of my life defending this country in the Army.  I am so proud that I am a Disabled American Veteran.  I am so proud that I have worked for 32+ years in this country of pure opportunity.  I am so proud that now all that I am and all that I have can be contributed to making sure the Bubbas and Cooters of our nation–MY NATION– have the proper healthcare.

I am so proud the politicians that forced their Will on the Will of “we the people” feel such pride in adding what will surely be another super-successful government program to our history books.  Nancy Pelosi is already hailing the Healthcare Reform LAW as successful!  She is placing this new LAW along many other decorated government programs like Social Security and Medicare…and rightfully so as this LAW will be an EQUAL FAILURE.    Heralding the idea that our Founding Fathers would be proud, she equates our new Healthcare LAW with “LIFE, LIBERTY, and the PERSUIT OF HAPPINESS” and “THE GENERAL WELFARE.”  IF that is the case, then I guess our Founding Father’s were miserable when they were alive since they didn’t pass such a rediculous LAW.  Furthermore, I suppose the generations that followed were also all miserable since BACK THEN people took care of themselves and others WITHOUT BIG GOVERNMENT INTERDICTION.  I guess every generation since the 1700’s has been MORALLY BANKRUPT since none of them passed such LAW.

Today will truly go down in the record books as a historic day…like December 8th, 1941…the day after.

I am so proud…NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
