I'm really mad as hell--time for serious rebellion (total vanity)
Jan. 14, 2010 | self

Posted on 01/14/2010 7:29:52 PM PST by sand lake bar

I'm sorry, I've never posted a vanity before, and if you moderators want to pull this, I completely understand. But I am bitterly, inflammably angry over the idea of Congress passing a tax on health insurance that would not apply to union or state and federal workers.

No. I won't pay it. I'll put all my savings in non-attachable places and fight like hell against this outrage. This is Lexington, Concord, sacred honor time as far as I'm concerned. I've told my family, I'm telling my friends, and it wasn't enough so I'm venting here, too. I bet most all Freepers feel exactly the same way.

Again, sorry for the vanity. But like Kirk stomping on the Klingon's hand in Star Trek III, I say to you Obama and your ilk, "I have had enough of you!"

“... I’ve never posted a vanity before.....”

Wow, a whole 6 months. Now that’s what I call will power!

As for the tax.. yes, it’s not a good thing.

I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.’ Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot - I don’t want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad.

To ALL FREEPERS:

As Brown gains in polls against Coakley in Massachusetts, and as Palin's positive numbers continue to bury Obama in national polling, and as more and more Dems start backing away from the Health Care legislation putrefacting its way through Congress with their tails tucked between their shaking legs, we can expect more Lib Trolls to come on here and post vanity threads about spraying bullets in D.C.

If we chime in with the expected pack-dog mentality that we observe when we visit Kos, HuffPo, and the other mouth-breathing Lib sites, it'll give the Libtard scum ammo that they can use to discredit our conservative resistance to the Commie tyranny oozing out of the White House.

Ignore them; they won't go away, but neither will they get what they came for. The transparent, inbred imbeciles.

:-O

Know that your anger is shared. Not just by Conservatives, but by larger and larger segments of the population for whom this (and the prior bribery moves) violates a fundamental sense of fairness. Even liberals. Union membership is not that large, in terms of the electorate. There is nothing in particular you can do today other than the usual writing & FAXing your reps. Just know that there is anger and resentment building over these moves, and it will bear itself out in the fullness of time. Patience, my FRiend.

I'm praying Brown wins his election next week, that will give me hope that lots of other people are waking up too. But if BOcare is passed, then I plan on becoming Amish to be exempt from the tax and force to buy the insurance.

I'll be talking to family, friends and neighbors to join me.

From memories of war resistors back in the day and knowledge of my Amish neighbors, the Amish do not accept converts, for the most part.

You may want to investigate the Mennonites and Hutterites, but, be warned: there are parts of their cultures that are quite alien to others.

Again, back in the 60s, the law determining whether or not someone was really philosophically against all war, were fairly sophisticated. I will bet any future determination for the purpose of exemption from the HC horror will be just the same.

One reason the Anabaptists are exempt is that they believe the future is in God’s hands. They carry _no_ insurance of any kind. So if you have auto or life or home insurance, any rejection of health care insurance will be seen as insincere. They have large families and the community is inter-related, so they chip in to care for their family or to provide the cash to get them treatment. I have known Amish who travel to Mexico for treatment because it is cheaper.

I have wondered if church groups and other affinity groups could become mutual insurance groups. This was common decades ago.

Well, the Obama Administration thinks it can do any bizarre thing it wants to, and get away with it. Like handing GM and Chrysler to the United Auto Workers. What law allows them to do that? Pass a tax on your insurance, but exempt some people from it, for no reason? Violates equal protection of the laws. Does the Obama Administration care? Doesn’t seem to.

Yeah Christopher Lloyd made a great Klingon, especially as Kirk's personal devil. He had just killed Kirk's son, of course. And Kirk had done everything, including sacrificed his ship and career, even tried to reason with the bastard.

"You fool," he said. "look around you. This planet is breaking apart. We'll both die here."

"Fine, then that's the way it shall be."

There just was no reasoning with the guy, even to the bitter end.

I'm an STTOS kinda guy, but I have to admit it, I was thinking of Insurrection, too.

"Lock and load."

You asked about faith-based insurance. There are Christian Insurance groups that are constructed like the Amish. They are non-profit co-ops. I can’t recall the name of the biggest one off hand (senior moment).
