The recent government shut down has coincided with an unbelievable moment in my life.
Johnny O’Bloggin is now part of the 1%. I will not get into details, but I will let you know that seven figures are involved, along with a whole lot of positive income. But let’s get to the shut down.
When I first started blogging, I gravitated towards Conservative blogs. Not because Of the same ideals necessarily. But because we shared the same hope for 2012. That hope was for a different President. According to Northwest Ohio Native, who used to comment here, I like to misrepresent myself. But that is not true at all. I have always been an open book. I don’t like Obama. Never have, never will. And in my opinion, I was right. He is an awful President. But, the reasons I think he is awful, and the reasons the tea party types think he is awful seem to vary greatly.
The biggest issue in regards to the shutdown seemed to be the AHA (Affordable Healthcare Act), otherwise known as Obamacare. The truth is, I’ve hated this bill since it’s inception. This bill does nothing in my opinion. If the goal is to insure every American, FAIL……………..If the goal is to provide cheap healthcare, FAIL………………..If the goal is to save American jobs, FAIL……………….. But the Tea Party will tell you, Socialized medicine is the problem. I disagree. The AHA sucks, because it does not do enough. The medicare system will work. Everyone will be covered and it will be cheaper. But OH NO, taxes may go up. This is what I don’t understand. I middle aged man who earns 40K a year is against A total tax payer funded universal healthcare system, because their taxes will go up? And Obama was against it because he needed to win in ’12, and couldn’t afford to lose independent votes? But PLEASE, let’s placate to the insurance companies and their lobbying groups.
But let’s look more closely at the Tea Party and the retardation I see. I read an article today that claimed Ted Cruz is a front runner for the ’16 GOP presidential nomination. Please tell me this isn’t true Tea Party peeps. TED CRUZ? Some of you have screamed the birther shit since ’08. But now you’re willing to support a dude born in EVIL canada to a Father born in COMMUNIST Cuba. HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!! This is almost as bad as the asshattery involving inner city woman not being able to get an abortion. But then not funding food programs that will feed those children that were never wanted in the first place.
In the end. I’m sort of lost. I don’t quite understand what Republicans nowadays are getting at. All I know, is that John McCain seems to be doing a better job than our POTUS could ever hope to do. But I’m sure Conservatives label him a RINO, while progressives seem to adopt the attitude that ’12 Romney voters adopted…..IT COULD BE WORSE!!!!!!!!!!
Liberals and Conservatives seem to be falling into the same trap. The better of two evils. In my opinion, this is the mindset that set this country spiraling downward.
While I enjoy blogging with Liberals and Conservatives at the same time, it is becoming apparent to me that both stick to their guns, and both vote accordingly, which may very well be destroying this country…………………………….
Back to me. Wow that sounds narcissistic! Recent events in my life have made me look at things in a different point of view. Especially banks. Imagine 0% loans on anything you wanted. How about curbside service? If I lose my ATM card, a personal banker will drive to my house on a Sunday and give me a new one. If I go to a casino and use the ATM which usually includes a $4.99 fee, my bank will now pay that fee! Why? Because I have enough money in that bank to make me a VIP client. But I digress. I think the true reason is Bill Clinton. Contrary to what I’ve read on this blog, he started it all. He is defended as the utmost courageous fighter for the middle class. And everyone here calls the tea party followers brainless retards? This guy not only sent American jobs to Mexico, but he also created a banking atmosphere that benefits people like me. Instead of people like I used to be, Who really needed zero fees, or zero percent financing.
What I realize during this new chapter in my life, is that pretty much all the people I’ve followed on blogs are ridiculous. Progressives tout a horrible healthcare bill because 12 million more people will have insurance. They refuse to discuss this POTUS in a negative light because at least he’s not Romney or McCain. Conservatives preach that a god like presence needs to be injected into our government. Even if it creates the most retarded contradictions. And you can say what you want about Clinton (Sir), Clinton(Maam), Romney, or even Obama, but you can not deny that the actions of Senator McCain over the last year have been what’s best for our country. When I visit blogs, the only things that I see, are different reasons for destroying this country.
Maybe one of these days, we’ll get it right.
