Social Security and Government Rant

There is tremendous outrage over Social Security premiums increases.  Forbes likes to call it taxes and has printed an article that has found the hot button of the ignorant focus group they meant to enrage.  I will not post that article here because it is beneath me and you, but suffice it to say that the article hit the right target with the bovines demanding to end Social Security and degrading "OTHERS" they perceive to be beneath them because they "do not take care of themselves and are leaches in society".  They blame those who are not like them, therefore, you got it.... they must be "OTHERS."

There has also been way too much discussion that lacks substance but overflows with unrealistic visions of a world, that if it was done in a very specific way... would be perfect.  Of course, we can't have that world because the damn socialist and "others" have too many rights and have the nerve to speak up. 

*Damn these Wisconsin Unions! Damn these Ohio and Michigan citizens with their recalls and voting rights.  Damn you all! we were on such a good track for eight years with Bush and Cheney and you had to wreck it.  Damn you white people who voted for Obama and get along so well with "Others"... DAMN YOU ALL! - you were all supposed to suffer on May 21 and we are all still here.... It must be Obama's fault... yes, he stopped the Rapture! (Oh Crap! he IS THE ONE... )*

To help these folks get a taste of reality I have posted this on the site:
  • If your home town is hit by a hurricane, tornado or other natural disaster, remember the Republican mantra: PULL YOURSELF UP BY YOUR BOOT STRAPS and QUIT YER WHINNING.
  • Do us all a favor and don't waste our tax payer dollars finding your loved ones, your dead ones, your pets or giving you money to rebuild your home or your lives. Frankly that is just TOO SOCIALIST and YOU won't have any part of it.
  • When your time comes to collect SOCIAL SECURITY burn the money. You are no socialist pig and won't degrade your self by helping those bums in their 80's who did not plan for their future the way you did.
  • Also, while you are at it. If you are in a car crash this holiday weekend and become disabled, DO NOT ACCEPT MEDICARE or SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY. It is beneath you. Sell everything you have to take care of you and when that is gone, roll over and die because you'll have no other choice. But you get to die righteous. (and quickly, I fear)
  • Also, until that horrible thing happens, feel free to donate your money to Wall Street and oil companies because they need more and more and more and more....
  • NEVER EVER think of anyone else except yourself. Don't make that mistake. It is too socialist and it is just wrong.
  • Keep blaming Obama for everything, including the hang nail you got last week.
  • Also, you should all build a monument to REAGAN and thank him for his wisdom on the "trickle down economics" because, just like that lottery ticket, it will happen soon.
  • Don't forget to send a thank you card to BUSH & CHENEY for the prosperity you enjoyed over 8 years and send a check to the HERITAGE FOUNDATION because they need your support to bring about the Palin's and Gingrich's of this world.
  • Also, keep your TV on FAUX news 24/7 because you don't need to learn anything new or change your mind about anything you think you know. In fact, you know EVERYTHING, you always have.
  • Remember educated people: USA is #1 at EVERYTHING even if the facts prove otherwise. (but who needs facts?)
  • Oh for good measure: Hate, hate, hate : Gays, Undocumented workers, women's uterus, blacks, Hispanics and the Asians (just because they are smarter and better than anyone else). Keep that fire in your belly... even if it develops into a bleeding ulcer. (you are tough, you can handle it)
  • The main thing is to remember that YOU NEVER give in, YOU ARE NEVER WRONG and anything that benefits society is very, very bad and probably a communist, socialist, Kenyan plot to kill you with kindness.
  • If your sibling, parent or child has a mental or physical impairment that makes it impossible for them to survive on their own, remain tough and DO NOT expect or apply for services that would enable them to function in society and be as productive as their limitations allow.  Remember, only the strong survive and socialized democratic kindness is a weakness. Besides, they never contributed to Social Security or Medicare so they deserve absolutely nothing.
  • We can't have that. Social security is evil because FORBES, THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION, GOP AND FAUX NEWS are never, ever wrong about anything and they have YOUR best interest in mind. No, no, they are not using you. Keep raging against your self... er, I mean, the government. yeah, that's right... evil government.
Care to add something? I'll add it to the list. I would like to keep it going.

ADDED by @ :
  • Veterans with PTSD ought to quit whining about the benefits they aren't getting. And if the wait for services is so long.  (That's okay, because that's just more returning soldiers the country won't have to care for because they kill themselves first.)
  • When unemployment rises to levels like the great depression, people should just suck it up.
  • If you're a woman, don't get pregnant in Texas because you'll be forced to see ultrasound.
  • If you lose your job, don't accept unemployment comp. Just suck it up and deal with it. Unemployment is waaaaay too socialist.

I wonder why republicans don't realize that Jesus was a socialist? Hey, he asks for 10% of your earnings, does he not...and that is not going to be the same for everyone. In fact, he was pretty much for everything they are against: such as, helping the sick, poor, including those that were against him. Just pointing that out.

So true Angela but they serve different masters now. Christianity is an excuse rather than a way of life.
