All Crime Is Personal

Federal appeals court rules health care reform bill is constitutional: This is the part where I remind you that I worked in the healthcare industry for 22 years. Not only have I worked for several major health insurance companies but I have also worked for medical practices and for a company that did annual enrollment …

As you may know I am not a huge fan of President Obama mostly because of his so-called healthcare reform. However I think he did himself a great disservice by releasing his birth certificate. Personally I don’t think the whole ‘birther’ debate was worthy of a response from The President. Only people with the relative …

Facebook Page ‘Prays’ for Obama’s Death?: So as I’m sure you know by now someone started a Facebook group that basically prays for the death of President Barack Obama. Here’s the wording: “DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, …

joewilsonSo what’s that tool’s name who called President Obama a liar during his speech? Oh yeah, Joe Wilson.
I don’t know why everyone is so shocked. This isn’t a right or left thing either. Like I said there’s no polite political discourse in this country anymore. I’m actually surprised it took this long.
It’s only a matter of time before congress turns into those parliament sessions froom Eastern Asia where fights break out. Here’s one from South Korea.

Don’t be surprised if we’re not living in a Mad Max type of world within 10 or 20 years. Not because of peak oil or global warming. It will be because we’re just going to degenerate into a bunch of savages.
And for no good reason here is Liar by Megadeth…

barack_obamaYou’re all a bunch of asshats.
Look, I’m as conservative as they come but have some respect for the office of the President of the United States. You’re acting the same as the Bush = Hitler people.
Let your kids see the speech and if you don’t like what he said discuss it with your kids. Stopping them from seeing it is just going to make them want to see it more.

whole_foods_logoSo this is what the Whole Foods boycott is all about? You have your tampaxes in a twist because CEO John Mackey is against President Obama’s healthcare plan and the fact that he basically called you all a bunch of fatasses. You know something? He’s absolutely right. And I even smoke and I still think he’s right.
And I hate to shatter your sense of self importance but there is nothing more pointless than a Facebook protest group.
Whole Foods isn’t a store I would normally shop at but if there was one near me I would start.
Get over yourselves people.

caduceusI love referring to myself in the third person.
Anyway, I heard President Obama, or one of his representatives say that Medicare is proof that the government knows about healthcare. That obviously came from some one who never had to deal with Medicare. I mean it’s a plan that doesn’t cover routine physicals. You would think the government would rather pay for preventative care than an illness down the road. Medicare is the ultimate definition of a government bureaucracy. I should know, I’ve worked in the healthcare industry for 21 years.
However I have to take the town hall protesters to task. You people scare me. Nothing was ever solved through hysterics. And you may want to turn off whatever talking head you’ve been listening to because a lot of you are beginning to sound the same.
Now look, I’m no fan of President Obama’s proposed healthcare plan but it’s because of my experience that I formed that opinion. Not from what some suit is telling me in order to gain ratings.
The town hall protesters remind me a lot of the ‘No Blood For Oil’ protesters from 2003. Just as uninformed of the real issues.

obamatimeWebster School wants to change name to Obama:

A St. Paul elementary school has voted to officially change its name to “Barack and Michelle Obama Service Learning Elementary,” pending approval of the school board.
The name is meant to honor the Obamas’ commitment to service learning.

Again I have to say while I think President Obama is doing a decent job so far he’s only been president for a little over 3 months. He still hasn’t done anything yet. And since when do first ladies get stuff named after then that’s not a rehab center? No offense to the first lady but she hasn’t done anything yet either.
And what the hell kind of name is “Barack and Michelle Obama Service Learning Elementary”? Hell. if you wanted to call it Barack Obama Elementary I might have less of a problem with it.
