The World Can Eat A Bag of Dicks

2 Jun

It’s been a while since I cut loose with a rant, and this one has been building for a while.

The ingrates, moochers, and would-be saviors from ourselves have done a lot to irritate the crap out of me this week, but two things stick out in my mind, and leave me feeling like I was served a heaping shit sandwich and told to eat it all gone.

I was listening to the radio driving home from work Tuesday, and Hannity had Paul Ryan on the show.  Now, I want to like Paul Ryan.  I really, really do, especially since he seems to be one of the few inside the beltway who hasn’t gone full-on retard.  The problem is he still starts at the wrong place in the analysis.   Hannity asked him about Trump’s criticism of the timing of his plan and doing anything to Medicare and Medicaid, as it will cost the Republican Party the Senior Vote in 2012.

Ryan pointed out how it changes nothing for people of a certain age, and how his plan offers block grants to states for Medicaid “so each state could decide for itself how to best serve the needs of its unique citizens.”  He went on to say that Washington certainly had no special wisdom on how the money should be spent, and that he “believes in federalism”.

I almost crashed my car.  I would love to have 20 minutes in a room one-on-one with people like Ryan.  I’d love to ask him why he thinks the federal government should be taking this money from taxpayers to spend on medicare and medicaid in the first place.  Maybe I’d get to ask him whether or not he believes that authority should be vested in the Federal Government to begin with.  Afterall, if the states know better, then shouldn’t the states have the right to decide whether or not such programs should exist in the first place?  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m in favor of reducing the largesse of Uncle Sugar with my money whenever feasible, but once again, it proves what I’ve been saying for years:  The difference between the parties is one of degrees.  The Democrats believe that they have absolute power over you and your wallet; the Republicans only want to keep enough of both to be a pain in the ass.  It would never occur to either one that the reason things are so fucked up at the moment is because they can pass laws regulating the amount of water in your toilet or the wattage of your light bulbs, but not pass a budget.  They fret over the environment, but refuse to enforce immigration law and protect the border.  They will dream up new ways to use your money to keep a sychophantic legacy media operating, and craft justifications for an internet kill switch.  They watch as social services are innudated with a tide of illegal alien beneficiaries, who use the benefits disproportionately, and continue to borrow obscene amounts of money in order to continue entitlements the government never had any business offering in the first place.

My second focal point is a caller from last night.  “Evan” from LA, claimed to be a doctor who had been practicing there for 30 years.  In his cool British accent, he started the call by saying that health care is an “absolute right”.  He then went on to say that this was true whether you were a citizen or you just came across the border.  Hannity, of course, was using the tried and true approach to kicking the legs out from underneath Evan’s argument, which was short on fact and long on emotion.  After childing Hannity for not buying it, he patted himself on the back for his wisdom, stating that he believed the Bible supported his assertion, and that the problem with conservatives was that they just are not as compassionate as he is.  No sooner did he say this, than he opined that “we will never get Medicare under control until we stop offering treatment for people who are dying.”

I can’t help but to be frustrated.  People like Ryan might get it.  Someday.  With some careful instruction.  People like Evan never will.  And will not even be satisfied with your last dollar, because then you just wouldn’t have worked hard enough to make more.  For them.  And I can do nothing for either.  Its like being dropped into a tribe in the ass end of the world somewhere.  Not only can you not say anything, but the people around you can’t even comprehend of the same thoughts.

My inner child wants to kick your inner child's ass.

    Dick, welcome to the Peoples Republic of Illinois. Give Donny a smart salute from this ol retired Sailor, along with a hearty “Welcome Aboard!!”.

    Have been at the Hospital all day with the mother in law. She had some out-patient surgery done, which sucked up the whole day. We are all home now, and getting ready for the main event next Thursday (removing an Arterial Aneurysm before it goes bust, along with some plaque filled arteries just south of there. That is going to be in-patient, and much more serious than todays event.

    Also thoughts are with PA and all that is on her plate right now.

    And your rant BisW…..was rant-astic!

    Great rant, BiW! The other evening, when DD#2 and I were shooting the breeze, I explained the problem with Social Security and how it robs people of their hard-earned money. How families can’t access the money their loved ones “paid” into the system all their working years, and how the government gets to tell people how much money they are “allowed” to get back each year after they retire.

    She’s finally old enough to really and truly start to understand that stuff (she’ll be 20 in August – my God, where did that time go?). And yeah, I know everyone SAYS you can explain these things to younger kids/teenagers, but having raised 3 kids past their teen years, I’m here to tell you, their brains can’t make those connections until after they are past adolescence. They can make a start, but there are some vital connections that are missing prior to their 20’s….

    Anyway, it was nice to see that she “got” it – and that she was going to remember it going forward.

    And it gave me hope for the future – there really are more of us than there are of “them” (they keep aborting themselves out of existence). Change is coming and it’s going to take time to turn this all around, but I really and truly believe we’re going to be OK –
