Senator Lyndsey Graham from North Carolina is a dumb A*% he doesn't know the difference between Supreme leader of Iran and its president Ahkmedenajad (no difference in rhetoric just different men) or that the Supreme leader is an Ayatollah. Thankfully he is one of the leading voices of the Republican party because if this is the best they have then we Democrats are doing fine. I am sick of hearing about how devastating one pay health care will be as if we are not chronically screwed up now. I know that there are imperfection in "One pay" health care but the up side is people who need help will be able to get it without devastating results. The AMA and it's platform (lobbyists etc...) have had a free ride jacking costs through the roof with the brunt being shouldered by the public. The motivating factor being Medicare, it's very existence has spawned an atmosphere of over charging the government. Now we are paying for it. So to say it is going to create a shoddy climate of care for the masses is absurd we don't have to have a bad system we can design a futuristic better system and we will find a fair way to pay for it.
It is Fathers day and I love my Father and I equally dislike him. It's amazing to me because no matter how much I try to Idolize him I cannot. Yes, too much foul water under our bridge. Still he is my Father and no matter how much I air my grievances publicly (and I do) I still love that man. He is human and he is imperfect and he is much loved and he is complicated. Like me I suppose.
It's a hallmark holiday which gets under my skin I feel manipulated to purchase and care about something some one else in an advertisement office decided I needed to care about.
Inorganic, lame and ridiculous. I think we should appreciate each other naturally when it warrants it.
Not because we need to generate shopping.
Oh well....we're working on our values, I hope.
I am grateful for everything including my family.
Especially my Father.
I appreciate the complexity of life...it's very exciting and keeps us sharp!
Happy Fathers day you men...I hope today you feel appreciated.
