PREACHING, PRACTISING, YOU GET IT
The following was attributed to Donald Trump. I am no Trump fan, and generally find him obnoxious and a predator businessman who goes bankrupt to avoid paying people, and he has been all over the map on Obamacare, but even the "rocks" cry out and sometimes get it right. I would that more people would have the guts to cut through the beltway lingo and simply tell the truth...
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan
we are FORCED to purchase and FINED if we don't
which covers at least ten million more people
without adding a SINGLE NEW DOCTOR but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents
written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it,
passed by a Congress that DIDN'T READ it but who exempted themselves from it
and signed by a President who smokes
with funding administered by a treasury secretary who didn't pay his taxes,
for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,
by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese
and financed by a country that is BROKE!
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG???
We surely know that answer – and the proposed debt ceiling deal this past weekend would take 10 years to “save” MUCH LESS than what we are overspending in just one year! And even then is is BACKLOADED! It is too little, too late. The GOP should have defunded ANY expense for ObamaCare until 2013 as well as all new EPA funding, the National Endowment for the Arts, etc. Obama won the game of chicken. It was an entirely phony crisis, and we are in a worse one if this thing is implemented, because the CAUSE for the problem was ignored and no one will think we are serious. Our creditor nations have already said as much. Anyone familiar with government funding knows that agencies ask for absurd amounts they could never spend effectively knowing the amounts will get reduced and then they scream about “cuts” when they STILL have more than is needed! It ia a total scam. The current crop of Dems and Establishment Republicans have to go in 2012. These guys are 100 times worse than King George III of England. It isn’t about party, it is about principle.
Dr. Regina Benjamin has a BMI over 30 which is in the obese Category. Over 40 is morbidly obese. Your writer here has a BMI of 28.8 – 6’-3”, 230 lbs. I would have to lose a staggering 31 pounds to get out of “overweight” to the "normal" range which maxes out at a 24.9. I would have to GAIN 10 pounds (yech) to be at the BOTTOM end of Dr. Benjamin’s category. Since your lovable writer here is already too fat to be surgeon general (even if I were a doctor), what does that say about someone who really IS obese? The lowest I ever was was 20.6 when in college and walking everywhere and when a bachelor not eating much and I looked like a stringbean and have the pictures to prove it. Who makes up these charts anyhow? Skinny people I am sure!
