The recipiants of the healthcare bailout

And one who is just of his own free will shall not lack for happiness; and he will never come to utter ruin.
Aeschylus

I have a bad temper. I beat my wife and children. I lost every job I ever had because my coworkers were afraid to be near me. Now no one will hire me.

I can never have enough of anything. I want the very best. I lied, cheated, committed fraud, stole and robbed to get more. Now I’m in prison.

I didn’t like school, so I dropped out. Working an everyday job was a drag, so I quit. I joined a street gang so I could pretend I had friends. I’m getting older now and want a normal life, but the tattoos and criminal history keep me from getting a good job.

I know that I’m superior to everyone else. I’m of the superior race, I’m smarter, my mind works better and my ideas are better than the inferiors around me. I’m physically fit, stronger and faster than anyone I know. The rest of the world should be looking at me as if I am a god; but they don’t. No one listens to me or wants to be around me. I jump from job to job looking for a place that recognizes my superiority.

I am the epitome of the macho man. I love love so much that no one is safe. In my various guises, I love women, men, children and animals. If they don’t willingly accept my overtures, I will force myself on them. These desires have led to a whole list of orders of protection and more than a little jail time. It has made it impossible for me to get a job.

I snuck into this country because I want what you have: your success, your house, your car, your clothes, your job and your healthcare. I will stay here until I’m physically kicked out.

At an early age, I discovered that I had no tolerance to things that could be abused; but I didn’t avoid them. I am an alcoholic, a drug abuser and obese. My addictions have wrecked my health, my life, and made it impossible for me to hold a job.

Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. Sound familiar? They are the seven deadly sins. These make up a large portion of the Unites States uninsured. Are they disadvantaged, or did they create their own situation? Are they the people for which you work? Are they the ones deserving of your tax dollars in a government bailout? Think about it.

  1. This blog absolutely disgusted me. Typical right winged bulls—. You’re the type, who 60 years ago, would have been arguing for racial segregation and why homosexuals should be hanged.

    Futiledemocracy,

    Sorry, I had to edit the profanity out of your comment. I wouldn’t place profanity in your blog, and I won’t allow you to place it in mine. The rest of your comment is fine . . . as far as ad hominem attacks go.

    In the future, if you want to comment on my blogs, you will find that stating why you disagree with me will open the door to actual discussions on the issues. Who knows? Perhaps you can woo me over to your way of thinking, though to be fair, I doubt it. I looked at your blog, and we appear diametrically apposed in our political positions. Perhaps it is a British apposed to American thing. I will always believe in Capitalism, but hang in there. You are actually a pretty good writer. Just use that skill when writing comments.

    I will note that you are wrong about me. I believe that segregation is wrong, and in the 60’ I was one of those protecting the marchers (I wasn’t old enough to be involved earlier), but segregation is but a blemish on the face of history compared to slavery. Here in the colonies we are still trying to correct both. Neither should be forgotten lest history repeat itself, but the scars are healing with time.

    As to my views on sexual orientation, unless one’s sexual orientation or proclivity enters into the criminal realm, I don’t care and it is none of my business. If it does enter into the criminal realm, as in the references in my blog, then it becomes societies’ problem. If a child molester’s past keeps him from getting a job, and Obamacare requires him to have insurance he can’t afford, taxpayers (that would be me) will have to buy that insurance. Sorry, I feel no compulsion to alleviate the situation that he so knowingly and willing created–and that goes for all of the other groups listed in my blog. I don’t care if they have insurance or not, but I know that I don’t want to pay for it.

    Respectfully,
    Stlouisooz
