Only have a minute, but I wanted to check in and say hi. Reading your blog keeps me motivated to fight the good fight when I'm feeling tired, lazy or just discourged. Its so easy to get cynnical with all the negative politics, corporate owned press, and a public too lazy to look up foot notes and find out the real story.I hope you were complimenting me and that you meant that I wasnt negative and that my comments were factually based! :)
I do, of course, have some criticisms though. Being a card carrying liberal, I always wonder what attracts people about the current Republican party. I mean real people, not the Enron, Oil Industry, billionaire club. If you are rich, the benifits of a Bush America is obvious.
But you don't sound rich. In fact, you can't work because of illness or injury. And it sounds like you want to take your ex-employer to court and make him pay for your disability. Now I know next to nothing about the details of your case, but I do know Dubya isn't on your side. Dubya is for tort reform, that does not bode well for your law suit. He is for reducing medicare/medicaid. Not good for you. He is for taking the "savings" and giving it back (to the rich, not you). Still not good. So, if you don't mind me asking, why are you on the wrong side?
Okay, you spend a lot of time on medication, and you have a thing for ufo's and conspiracy theories. Still doesn't quite explain it. So, what gives?
Your friend as always,
I have just a couple of answers first off I am far from rich (even by liberal standards) and I dont want to take my employer to court to pay for my disability I want them to uphold their end of our bargain. I paid a premium and they agreed to pay a benefit.
Bush expanded Medicare coverage (did you forget Rx coverage), and is giving choices not make all my decisions for me. Bush also expanded the Americans With Disabilities Act which his father signed into law ten years earlier! What civil rights legislation did
As far as tax policies the expansion of the economy helps all of us. EVERYONE who pays income taxes received a cut under Bushs plan. Why would I ever expect a tax refund if I dont pay any in? At that point it has nothing to do with taxes, but it has to do with hand outs, welfare.
BTW, it is no secret that the wealthiest of us create the jobs.
Now to a revelation I am not only a conservative, but I am a gay conservative. Shocked amazement, but I gotta tell ya, Liberals can pass all the civil rights legislation they want they can say it is my legal right to fuck on the street corner but if I am locked in my basement waiting for the dirty bomb to disburse then what good does it do me? The only way to defeat terrorism is to take the battle to them and remove any and all safe harbors for them to hide. The Bush plan does that as well implants a chance for democracy in the
The old way hasn't worked and Kerry and the Protest wing of the Democratic Party wants to return to those good old stagnant days - after 9/11 something had to change, luckily we had a President who had the strength to stand up and shake things up.
I am an individual not part of a voting block! President Bush judges individuals just as I do and news flash, he doesnt hate me, he doesnt even dislike me. Like me he is realistic. Liberals tend to believe in some utopian society conservatives tend to be realists.
