Watch this please!

I'm on a political rant.
I can't believe what is occuring in this country.
With anxiety and anger I've watched our president strong-arm his way into healthcare. I think it's unprecidented what has occured here.
What gives him the right?
What gives him the right to do what the majority of people do not want?
It's frightening.

Maybe that's why I didn't like the book Hunger Games. It's too real life.
I read a post yesterday by Cherie, she ruffled some feathers. I applaud her! We should be concerned that this administration has so passed such a vague and pathetic mess. There could be much more effective ways to do this.
There are too many people trying to get something for nothing.
Where did this sense of entitlement come from?
I think this is a very sad time for this country.
The government doesn't belong in healthcare. They have plenty of other places they can and do screw up.
And on that note, this is a billboard somewhere in Minnesota.

You go girl! I also appreciated Cherie's comments. Unbelieveable!
On Hannity's show a democrate said, "We are hoping by the time elections happen in November the people will only feel the good parts of the new health care and forget their anger. The bomb(terminal sentence) will fall after the elections!"
It is indeed a sad time for America! I lost the sound on my computer and can't watch the video;]
ps Thank You for your sweet comments. She was my husband's RS president when he was bishop. They are a wonderful family. ~♥

It is super frightening. The only vaguely good thing coming from this is that you can FINALLY start to see people realize what's going on and take a stand. But it's just baffling to figure out how something like that bill could pass when it's clear from the reaction that it is NOT what the majority wants. How does that happen?!

Amen, Brother Ben (Or Seesta Tauna)!!! -- I am ho-ho-hoping that America speaks up between now, and especially at, the midterm elections in November. We've gotta say no to any step toward socialism.

Ya.. if you saw my facebook page yesterday..it was worse!!!

All I wrote was:

NOBAMA Next Term.

A war of words broke out on my FB post.. and none of it was with me!

I got home and saw what happened and it was BAD. Lots of emotions and anger turned into "attacks" on people. It's crazy what has happened. Sad too.

I thought that billboard was in Wyoming? Anyways.. wherever it is.. I LOVE it.

I worry about the government wanting to control things.. I worry about the Constitution.. and I worry about my freedom.

lots of worries here.

Honestly, I can't even talk about it. It makes me so mad!
I'm so with you!

Cherie said...

You already know how I feel and I am with you - I could probably write a book on the way many in our country feel Entitled - It is a big pet peeve of mine on many levels!! Arghhhhhh

Sherrie said...

Sherrie said...

Thanks for posting that video. It's an eye opener and makes me wonder what is Obama thinking?

Yvonne said...

That was an amazing clip--thank you so much for posting it. As an American living in Canada, I know something about the healthcare system, but I don't know a whole lot about this bill. But everything I have read and heard makes me very afraid.

Love the billboard and yes, I do miss him.

Amen Sistah!!!

Debbie said...

I don't miss him or his administration either. I am ready for a clean sweep of all politicians and to start over.

Hate, hate, hate this FAKE president and his lousy party. He's a liberal Socialist and people tried to warn the masses. Tried and failed.

This is gonna piss people off, but...he was elected for two reasons and two reasons only. He was running on the Democratic ticket (although Socialist is much more accurate!!!), and he was black. That's it. He had no experience!!!!!

Living in the south, I heard over and over and over....we want a "brother" in the White House!!!! We're going to get change! He's our savior!!!

Well retards, how ya like him now????
