The Senate is Wasting time and money. What else is new?

| politics | health |

Do you have a close friend or a loved one who is terminally ill, or even chronically ill, or even acutely ill, and cannot afford their health coverage. Do you know someone who clings on to each breath in hopes of one day being able to survive. Do you know someone who is more concerned about paying a bill from the hospital then getting their family treated for a medical condition?

I do, I know plenty of these people.

This is what I want you to do. Give them a call tonight, tell them you are sorry, but they will not live to see health care reform in America. Tell them that politicians and insurance companies, and disease profiteers are too busy lining their pockets to give a rats ass about Uncle Joe or Aunt Sally. Tell them they have two choices, they can either die. OR spend the rest of their life working themselves to death trying to pay off their bills.

Do you know why? Because today - according to the wall street journal - " Senators Strike Health Deal "

This is complete bullshit. It’s got a picture of Harry Reid standing there with a deer in the headlights look, I am sure he is really proud of what they accomplished.

The public option is out, medicare is being extended, there is some loosely identified “government plan” which probably will fall through, blah blah blah, they are going to debate abortions later. The lobbyists are happy, insurance companies are happy, Republicans are happy, and Democrats are happy. We should all be f*cking happy. But unfortunately we cannot be. Because our friends and families are suffering, drowning in a sea of debt while our lovely elected officials bicker about abortions, and eat steaks at Ruth’s Chris courtesy of Kaiser.

I am so filled with disgust and anger and disappointment in the political process in this country right now that I am rambling, and completely ruining my credibility, and could honestly care less. I could care less, because this whole fucking health bill is a waste of time. It is a waste of money, it is a waste. There is no REFORM BEING DONE! NOTHING IS BEING DONE, NOTHING IS FUCKING CHANGING!!!

Hmm… sounds familiar. Sounds like Obama’s Entire office. A bunch of talk, a bunch of speeches, cute slogans, and ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGE.

I’m sick of it. The time for Reform is over, the time for debates is over. It is too late. If there is no Universal Health Care then Americans will never have the proper health care coverage that they need and deserve. If we are too worried about Abortions than nothing will ever get done.

It just strikes me , it makes me laugh how right wingers are always defending what the founding fathers would have wanted, sticking to traditions, blah blah.

I could not have said it better then one of the founding fathers - Thomas Jefferson.

“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. " [ CHECK ]

“Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor. " [ CHECK ]

“Every generation needs a new revolution.” [AND CHECK]

I have come to the conclusion that nothing will ever change. So Sarah Palin, if you are listening come on and be president already. You can completely destroy this country and then we can start fresh.

It feels weird to be writing anything right now that isn't somehow related to Friday's CrowdStrike incident, but given I recorded this video just a few hours before all hell broke loose, it'll have to wait until next week. This week, the issue…
