So apparently there's a person out there far more insane when it comes to health insurance than Obama socialized ideas. In Montana, there's a senator by the name of Max Baucus who is drafting a bill that would require every citizen to have health insurance, and if they don't, they get a fine of $3800. Last time I checked, I was a human being, not a car, and if I should choose to not have health insurance, I shouldn't be required to, and I definetly shouldn't be fined a fee. Especially not one that huge. $3800 is just under a 5th of what I make a year. That's a huge chunk, and I know there are alot of people out there who make less than me. What does a person do when the only job they can get for the moment is a McDonalds job, or a Wal-Mart job and they're still in that probationary period? What if they're unemployed? What if they work at a place that doesn't offer Medical at all? Suddenly they're getting a rediculous fine? I mean, I can understand Obama's crazy insurance plan. At least the thought behind it. The intentions are good, or at least I hope they are (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt I guess). It's for the people who can't afford medical insurance. But what this guy wants is just crazy. On top of that, he pulled a John Kerry or an Arnold Schwarzenegger. When he campaigned for the seat, he specifically campaigned AGAINST these kinds of things, and now, here he is proposing this bill.
In other news, Obama gave his 18 minute long speech at schools today, and like predicted, some parents kept their kids out of school. Also, as predicted, extreme leftists are out there calling these people racists, or stupid ignorant republicans who don't want their kids to think freely and keep them ignorant forever. Well, I got news for anyone who shares these thoughts. The only people being ignorant, are people WITH these opinions. They never bothered to think about WHY it might be that parents are keeping their kids out of school. See, at the end of this little speech that everyone's favorite false idol, the kids were to go back to their classrooms and write a letter about how they could help Obama. Not how they could get good grades or be better people, but how they could help the president. If I were a parent, I'd be outraged. I would have taken my kid out of school as well, maybe even formed a little protest of some sort. Hell. I'm NOT a parent and I'm still pretty hot and bothered by this. This is the kind of shit that countries like Cuba and Venezuela use, because kids are pretty impressionable, and what better way to form your future than to form the minds of the people who can vote for your team in the future. I mean, if Mr. Second Coming of Christ fooled the majority of the adult population, he could be damn dangerous to the 5 year olds he was giving his speech to.
I heard today that Keith Olbermann is requesting anyone and everyone's help to get dirt on Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere (Beck's producer), Roger Ailes (owner of Fox News), all because of what Beck said July 28th when he called Obama a racist, which technically he's right (and it's definetly right when it comes to his wife). Obama has pushed views and opinions and said he wants to do things that will help out colored people (read: everyone who is not white). That's affirmative action, and that in itself is as racist as what people accuse white people of being (which these days is almost complete bullshit). What I really find funny about this is that Keith Olbermann frequently sits on his show with Jeannene Garafalo talking about how everyone who opposes Obama is a racist who probably sits around KKK meetings talking about how they can hang the president from a tree after beating him with bats and crowbars. These accusations also make them as racist as the people they are attacking, for a number of reasons also.
1: You don't know me. You don't know why it is that I don't like Obama, and until you get to know me and find out, then don't be a jackass. Until you hear me running around calling him a nigger or a spik, which you never will because I hate those words as much as a girl hates hearing the word "cunt," then you can not call me a racist. I bash alot of other ethnicities, but not because of their race. It's because of how they carry themselves, trying to fight racism with more racism and then wanting a free ride as they sit on welfare for years instead of trying to give everyone the same equal chance to succeed.
2: When these people who you're calling racist ARE in fact putting their points of view out there, and their arguements are pretty well founded and pretty strong, then you do not have the right to call them a racist (unless somewhere in these arguements they do use one of those deragory words). If they make these points of view, and the only thing you can come up with as a response is to call them a racist or an stupid right wing extremist, then that doesn't make them the racist. That makes you the fool who can't bother to educate himself enough to argue against his opinion. That makes you ignorant.
And for the record, ALL news programs edit their content. So for those of you out there who make the claim that Fox News edits stuff to suit them, then maybe you should check anything on CNN or MSNBC. Olberman and Contessa Brewer are well known for hiding the important facts to manipulate the message. But hey. I really don't care THAT much, because the ratings for Fox News, and most other conservative networks are far and away higher than any liberal trash. Bill Mahr, Olbermann, and Brewer couldn't even hold a candle to Hannity or Beck, let alone conservative titans like O'Reilly or Limbaugh (not that I care much for Limbaugh, but he's pretty big).
Also, I'm sure people are probably getting tired of these types of blogs by now. Tough. I had to deal with stupid conspiracy bullshit trying to link Bush to 9/11 or how Bush went to war for the oil or revenge, and no one could ever give any sort of claim, or how the state of our economy is the way it is because of Bush, even though it was the congress who made it easy for the citizens to buy what they couldn't afford thus causing a foreclosure domino effect, or even when it comes to the war saying that cost money, but the democrat run congress has had three years to end it by simply not funding the war anymore. If I had to deal with all that bullshit for the last 8 years, then you bet you're all going to have to deal with me for the next 4.
On a side note, Chris Brown is the biggest asshole in the world. He went on Larry King and when asked what happened, he refused to answer saying it was out of respect for him and Rihanna. Blatant copout? I think so! He has a right to privacy, but he doesn't deserve an ounce of respect just yet. Talking from my own experience, any man who strikes a female, no matter how big a bitch she is, is not a real man. He also tried to imply that Oprah was a backstabber when she had a show dedicated to domestic abuse, influenced by Brown and Rihanna. He thought that because he performed for her charity events and at her schools in Africa, that she shouldn't have made that show. Well, Chris, you're a piece of shit and you DON'T deserve respect, and should this type of thing happen to you in the future, it would not at all surprise me, because you're general attitude towards the situation doesn't at all seem sincere, but more like you're trying to protect your reputation (and maybe hope that Jay-Z doesn't kill you after all).
