About Me

My photo
I'm a simple man, not a simpleton. The worst thing any of our leaders can do is to get those two things confused. I'm a warrior for those things I believe in. I stand up for my friends, family, God, and country. All I truly want is for the government to stay as far out of my life as I can get it. Oh and just in case you haven't guessed it; I'm conservative in my bones.

I'll just let this one speak for itself. I love these folks to death.

Just a few more like them and we will win this battle.

I'm a member of AARP and regularly write them about their support of left-wing issues. To what avail I don't know.

My dad is nearly 70 and he's been a member since he became eligible. But he saw this on the news and said he's dropping his membership ASAP.

I agree. It has been and continues to be a left leaning, fear mongering organization that is hell bent on putting the senior citizens firmly in the pocket of our government. That's not the way this nation was intended. I hope that more seniors bail on this company as it has become more and more obvious that it does not have your best interests at heart.

Hooray, the right won !!!

(1) flat-lining wages

(2) exploding Medicaid and Medicare costs and thus immense pressure for future tax increases

(3) small businesses and self-employed individuals priced out of the insurance market

(4) a lot of uninsured or underinsured people imposing costs on hospitals and local governments.


There are even some who may see this as a Pyrrhic victory. Good going.

Ducky, WAKE UP. WE don't need COMPLETE OVERHAUL...DO YOU GET IT YET? my GOSH, how many times do you need to imply Republicans like the state of healthcare today? Ridiculous.

The first guy who spoke said private ins. companies can't give good care? that was a new one!
And, the AARP guy at the very end blames the crowd who didn't get answers?

YOu can't make this stuff UP~!

Greywolf,
My friend has another one on you tube. You can go see it also from my blog. He does sound that good all of the time, in fact I do not think these videos do him justice.
He loves the oldies and has been singing them since he was knee hi to a grasshopper.

GW:
The people in the meeting are pissed, but why they are pissed is not immediately clear. Do you have more footage so that we could see the context? Or you could explain, I'd appreciate that. See, I'm against ObamaKare because of the tax burden and the untenable nature of our economy not to mention Constitutional concerns. However, some people that are protesting this reform could benefit, and this is terribly confusing!

Greywolfe said...

Disa, the reasons for their concern are simple. Two things are at the heart of it. First, they are upset at the perception and fear that we will be socializing the most successful medical system in the world. In order to contain costs, cuts would have to be made and rationing would be the eventual outcome. This disturbs the elderly terribly. Second, many of the people that are upset, especially from the videos I've seen, are upset because they believe that the government doesn't have any constitutional authority to take over this much of our daily lives.

Recieved an AARP card in the mail today. Unsolicited. Wrote "HELL NO" on it and returned it.
Heard on the news yesterday that
10's of thousands have cancelled their membership since "O" said they endorsed his plan.

I need some help, please!!
Hey all of my blogger friends, I am sending out an SOS. I have picked up a blogger whose only intent is to argue and belittle our country. I am hoping some of you would be willing to visit my blog, http://yestheyareallmine-mom.blogspot.com and help me counter her ignorance. My rational mind tells me to just delete her, but my fighting spirit tells me to put her right where she belongs, back in the rat hole she crawled out from.

If you are interested in helping me, she is commenting on my Sunday August 16 post highlighting the hike our family took.
