Big SCARY Monster in the room (that has the spine of a mulched jelly fish)

Allow me to start off with a slight disclaimer. I have been on vacation for the past two weeks and some change and have literally given about an iota of care to the goings-on of the political an socio-economic machine that has been grinding around me while I have been imbibing mojitos and beach / pool time with a the fury of a man on a mission… and that has been one of TRYING TO FRIGGIN RELAX FOR A CHANGE. To be completely honest the biggest issue that I have had in the afore-mentioned span of time was when the new mattresses for the bed frame I bought were to arrive, and could I squeeze in some pool time prior or after said arrival, so let’s just say that my mind has been elsewhere.

-Now that the disclaimer has been stated, allow me to fire off the first volley across one of the most ASININE things that I have ever had the dishonor of being introduced to. What the hell are these people thinking?!?! Let’s do something a little on the perverse side here and place our albeit stained and harrowed minds into the vile cesspit that the national “Progressive” party calls a conscience for a moment, and think from their side of the fence. Yeah, concessions have been made almost blindingly obviously to get votes, but at the end of the day the final goal of having a one step removed national health care process in place is almost a reality. This has actually done the one thing that most politicians hate the most, and has caused their constituents to actually give a shit as to what they are DOING while in office. I am literally amazed at how polarizing this single issue has been to just the constituency base here in South Florida, a group of people that are most of the time more than happy to just flood the local coffers with their tax dollars for some of the most pointless reasons. Hell, I think there is even a fucking “Save the Manatee” tax down here. Personal note; all those damned floating sea cows are truly good for is to provide inconvenient speed bumps to the waterways that thread this area, but I digress.

What do we have now though? -A truly AWARE group of voters that are now paying attention to the daily activities of their voted reps, which, for their political futures is kinda like having the IRS that used to try to come audit your books stop drinking themselves to a stupor every time they try to come by and do their jobs and admit that they have given up the sauce so that they can better look at your books.

Cool guys, vote the way that YOU, an elected REPRESENTATIVE would like to vote. We can’t stop you.

-Until November.

And don’t use some bullshit excuse of “But but but I delayed the true impact of this bill to our state until 2015!!!!”

I’ll be fucking ALIVE in 2015.

    VERY well stated,,,if this were an actual, truly democratic vote, then not much could be said about the outcome,, but, This is not the case from what we are seeing up here north of the line. This idea of “pass this bill at all costs no matter how or no matter with whatever it takes” attitude, makes a mockery of all democracies.. Democrats, hang your heads in shame at your blatant misuse of power. This is no longer a question of healthcare as much as it is of honest government, of which seems non-existant at this point. Come election time, this time around, I hope the American people do NOT forget this!
    PS. I hear your new mattress is a great mattress, lmao

    Fuck these idiots. Does anyone actually think that these spineless, self-serving ass maggots have anything outside of a self-serving need to survive in said political environs? Even the most oblivious leech understands that the host has to survive, and that host is us.

    If they have forgotten that basic fact and think that we are a society of self-effacing masochists, the biggest loss is to them… As we are not.

    -What happens behind closed doors is NOT my concern, as long as it does not bleed into the political arena.

    I think today… Sunday… is gonna be a VERY bad day for the Republic. It’ll be small comfort to toss the asshats out on their ears after they screwed us over this bad. And it’s BAD.
