The Horrific Thud of a Crashing Elephant

Yea, yea, I know! It's been a LONG time! But since my last post, but "busy" is hardly a strong enough term to describe what I have been!! I have replaced the floors in my bedroom and bathroom, replaced bad floor joists, re-plumbed the bathroom, rewired the bathroom, rewired the bedroom, rebuilt a bathroom wall, replaced toilet, sink and tub , hung, and stained wall panels in bedroom, painted the bathroom, hung, and made appliance for the hanging of folksy, whimsical, bullshit knickknacks, such as my wife requires in her bathroom! All of this while fighting off the tenth case of Swine Flu in Henderson county, partially sawing my left hand off, and spreading blood, and contagion at the local hospital, which by the size of the bill I got, they seem to think I bought!!

Speaking of health care in this country, I can't seem to escape the Radical Right Wing smear campaign that seems to be echoing out of the Republican Party, who seems to have abandoned all pretense of relevance and pretty much admitted to the country that they are in the business of destroying any sort of health care reform whatsoever, and even several Democrats seem to want to help them do it, including the senator from my home district in North Carolina ,Heath Schuler.

Now I'm aware that Mark Twain, in his book "Puddin' Head Wilson" said that there are three kinds of lies, and they are Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics, and polls are a form of the latter, but in poll after poll, the public option has the support of at least two thirds of The American people, and the Democrats were elected to bring it about! Unfortunatley the insuarance lobby has spent their money well, and in a perfect example of lobbyist money working against the needs, and wishes of the American Public,. the public option is being fought by the very Democrats that were elected to bring it about!

From the right side of the aisle, we hear the same old litany of visionless tripe, lies, and baseless attacks against the President we've all come to expect. Having nothing to offer to The American People, all they seem to be able to do is attack any, and all who do.

Now don't get me wrong. I don't hate the Republican Party. I'm a centrist who enthusiastically supports, and practices my Second Amendment Rights. But right now, I see nothing and I mean NOTHING of any relevance from the Republican Party!

For a perfect example, let's take a look at sudden support of Medicare this week, and ponder how very different it is from their position on Medicare last week! I have a copy of a record album, (Remember record albums? They were played on a thing called a "Phonograph"), that was released by Ronald Reagan saying the same thing about Medicare that the Republican Party is saying about heath care reform right now! The date of the back says 1961! Now the Republicans are going to save it? BULLSHIT!!!!!

I will be going into this subject at some length in a later post, but right now I'm in the middle of researching, so I'll say so long for now, and it won't be for long!

About Me

My photo
Well!! I'm not here to be on anybody's side! I DON'T like George W. Bush and I will NOT call the bastard president! I'll call him President Pork Pie, but that is about as close as it gets! I'm not here to comfort the afflicted, but to afflict the comfortable! I learned a long time ago, that if you can make somebody laugh and think at the same time, they'll learn something! I'm trying to teach the American Public that there is another point of view out there, beside the Right Wing's This country's on a greased chute to Hell with Bush as it's Captain! I for one will not sit idley by while he drives the land that I love into the ground! This is my gift to this country. Maybe it's a little crude at times, maybe, it's a little rude at times! But in my world, rude and crude works! I'll post what I damn well please here and invite people to post comments the same way! Rant all you want!! I do! Freedom of Speech is the order of the day here! Like it? Let me know! Don't like it? Let me know! Silence me? AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN! So welcome one and all to STONEY'S RAGE!! It's all for America! I don't make a dime off it! And I won't have it any other way!
