Empathy for a homesick snowbird

I was in Bonita Springs, FL the other day.

I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read:

"I miss Chicago ."

So I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, and left a note that read, "I hope this helps.”

The great secret of modern American government, virtually unnoticed by all but diehard political junkies, is that this is now a country where increasingly large portions of the law are not written by anyone who voters can hold to account. Instead, it is the product of the fascist state, the giant network of departments, bureaus and agencies that populate the executive branch. By people that are nothing more than socialist boobs. These people last month wrote 13,789 pages of rules and regulations. And those we voted for sign them in to law. This is not government for the people by the people. It is slavery to a abusive system.

North and South Carolina opted out of expanding medicade, for political reasons.Wouldn't have cost them anything, as the Federal govt.would have picked up the cost.People making over 14,000 a year will qualify for credits toward medical care.Those making under that, like a friend of mine, simply won't get any coverage.Even though they work.Nice job of playing politics, republicans.And I'm no democrat.

Yes. They signed and didn't even read what they were signing.

The political statement: Not only do we not care about those people, we will do anything we can to hurt them and rub their faces into the dirt.

Political affiliation is irrelevant.

What do you mean "the Federal Government would have picked up the cost". Since when did the Federal Government begin producing anything that generated income?

You mean the American tax payers would have picked up the cost. The government can not provide anything that they first don't take from somebody else.

This is the type of people that are taking over our government.
Ayo Kimathi works for the DHS. As a federal employee, his job is obtaining “weapons and ammunition for his employer, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” otherwise known as ICE.
But Kimathi has a side job. His own website is called “War on the Horizon.” There, he preaches hatred against homosexuals and whites and is literally preparing for what he believes to be the coming race war in America. Because he works for the federal government as he does with ICE (which focuses on law enforcement activities), in order to have an extracurricular activity like he does, he needs to obtain permission from his superiors. This he did by telling them that “his anti-white, anti-homosexual site,‘War is on the Horizon,’ was just an entertainment site.
If he would have been white and a member of the KK? and said the same, Would he been treated the same.

The American taxpayers HAVE NOT picked up the cost for this or anything else, like imperialistic wars, tax subsidies to the rich, tax breaks for the rich, tax exemptions to the rich, cash incentives to the rich, giving the nation's natural resources to the rich, welfare to the rich, bank bailouts to the rich which were used to give bonuses to the rich ---YET. It has all been borrowed money. That is why we owe almost 17 trillion dollars now.
That is why we have to fire teachers, cops and firemen, let our roads and bridges crumble, withhold benefits to veterans injured in our military service in the no bid contract wars,---so we can give $20,000 raises to Governor McCrory's former campaign workers in their newly created jobs, give bonuses to bankers, give $12,000 raises to Thom Tillis' staff workers, give away the nations oil to oil companies, give, give , give --- to everyone who can kickback money to politicians.

I just tried to access the War is on the Horizon web site and it is "Temporarily Unavailable" that I define as being "shut down.' Right wingers love to make a controversy over something that is now being controlled, but nonetheless, try to make it a big issue to fit their government conspiracy mind set. How about it, Taxpayer?

The Feds pick up the tab for every illegal alien that goes to the ER.Think it would have been nice if Carolinians WORKING and making less than 14,000 a year could have gotten some help.Well, at least they don't have to pay anything.for insurance, as they don't qualify now.The only thing they pay, is taxes.

Reading Pravda last week, and the Russians are gleefully reporting that America is descending into Marxism.Their contempt for Obama is palpable.The Russians are rearming their military, and day their jets are far superior to America.They expect America to back down on Syria.

Back down or borrow another trillion dollars to prosecute a war
on behalf of people all sides of which hate America. To hell with the Syrians, Egyptians, Palestinians, Israelis and the camels they all rode in on.

You are a broken record. You continue to demonize the Republican Party as if the Democratic Party is morally superior to everyone else.

Your entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. And the facts are that every time your parties politics, not mine, are run to their logical conclusion millions of people end up being shot. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics killed maybe 50 million. The National Socialist German Workers Party killed 12 million and started WW2. And I can go on all day. Your not smarter than the rest of us and your certainly not morally superior. And we know this because like most democrats & liberals, you saw something you really know nothing about and immediately proclaim yourself morally superior. Which is the kind of brain dead reaction (can't really call it thinking) that I have come to expect from you.

I think it's time to change the Republican Party from the Grand Old Party (GOP) to the Government Conspiracy Party (GCP) because it suits them so well. Most cannot go for 5 minutes without bringing up some 'government conspiracy' story. Take your Paranoid medicine.
