ZipperheadPino,

     The crux of your .. well… whatever the hell you call it, seems to be … If it’s unfair that she should have to pay for that, why is it fair that I have to pay for that?

     I’m not gonna answer that yet.

    

     So, as an american, you are against every american citizen having access to affordable health care?

     I’d assume you are against that.

     But I’d assume that you are against you paying for it.

 

     I’ve got no clue what Molly did and didn’t do. 

     Dude she works for me.  I try to keep our relationship a working one.  If she asks for advice, i’ll give what I can to help.

 

     So let’s talk about Iraq for a second…

     why is it fair that I have to pay for that?

 

     So answer…

 

     You pay for a bunch of thing you might not believe in with your taxes… Democratic Government officials, stupid earmarked projects in NC (and the US), all those goverment funded groups that prove Global Warming exists, the list goes on and on…

 

     Why the hoopla over basic health care for all americans?

    

     Is it Pino and his family only?

 

     Isn’t your $250,000 (ballparked) enough for 4 people? 

     Would an extra (I don’t know, say $500 bucks a year) keep food off your table?

 

     My family (at less than $250,000) can afford it.

 

     And the weird thing is that you have a financial advisor.  We don’t. 

     If you fire his/her ass you might just help the poor/unfortunate.

 

     I’m not trippin’

     Why?

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

    

     The King has spoken.

Pino,

     We’ve had 2 ways of keeping in touch… this and fantasy baseball.

     The Rainer Beach Ballers made the playoffs again…

     You’ve dropped your team… again.

 

     Second ..

    …..   is this a blog.

 

     So research that yourself. 

     And then vote however you feel you need to.

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

  

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

 

     Post Script… I’d vote for Palin to abort! 

      Limbaugh Too!

Myself  (and Flaco) …

     Hi me.  You are looking as ‘hotter’ than your normal ‘hot’.

     I love you.

     By the way, As a left leaning person, one must laugh at PETA.

     In this last week they have complained about two issues…

          #1.  The Fishmongers at Pike’s Place market. 

     The Employees at Seattle’s famous fish market in downtown Seattle are being ‘raked over the coals’ for tossing fish.  Dead Fish.  See when a person purchases a fish one employee throws the recently dead (about one day – on average) fish across the displays to another worker.  It’s a crowd pleaser. 

     PETA says it’s disrespectful.

     #2. Obama kills a fly.

     Well, thanks PETA for proving Obama’s human.

 

     As a left leaning person, PETA … get real.

 

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

  

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

 

Post Script…

I love you, Flaco…

Pino,

     Lets rumble.

     Your Post…

 

See, life begins at some point.  For some, it’s at inception.  When the swimmer beats the odds and merges with the egg and 1 cell turns into 2.  They say “That’s life.  The Spirit of the Providence is present and this is a child.”  Other say, nope, not till the moment the fetus is outside the body of the mother.”  I know where I stand, but, more important I think, is that people have a conversation about where life begins.  I suspect, for most of America, is begins much much sooner than “birth” and a bit after inception.  And I’m willing to work on that, compromise.  But really, at some point, that group of cells has what is inherently referred to as qualifications of person hood.  And that, THAT person has rights.  And simply not being wanted doesn’t trump their wanting.  Wanting a car, a degree, a glimps of sunshine….of being.  They, THEY get to choose too.  In fact, we afford them that choice, rather, right:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

In the end, it’s clear:

I, as a man, have a right to enter into opinion on this topic.

There are legitimate circumstances when the right to choose ought, Ought, be extended to the woman.

What we are talking about is a child.  A living being endowed with rights from the divine; as layed out by our Founders.

And you know that.

 

     So, I’ve said, and believe,  in pro life.    As a personal choice.  As a left leaning  voter  that smokes, drinks, and has short hair;  I am forced again to defend myself from a long-haired, commitable, GOP F#$%.

     I will continue to vote pro-choice.  As you will continue to vote pro life.

 

     So why?  As someone who is pro life… why?  Why would I vote pro choice.  Why?

 

     TWO REASONS…

     A WOMANS RIGHT TO CHOOSE.

     FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

 

     A womans right to choose is way to complex for you ….

     So       ….    layed out by our founders ….   we got this freedom of religion thing here in the United States of America. 

  

     So leave Christianity out of the conversation.

 

     I’m not in politics, neither are you. 

 

     Do you vote Christian or American?

 

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

 

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

 

 

     Post Script  … 

 

     You wrote…

 

     So,  given that, I don’t wanna hear no story about “what if my bestest super duper friend in the whole world was raped, should she be forced to keep the child”?  No one thinks that she she be forced to.  Same with the health of the mother/baby.

 

     So dumbass… how do you vote?

 

     Back alley or Hospital?

     Do you vote Christian or American?

     ?

To everyone…

     I’m not anti-kid. 

     I’m anti-trojan. 

     Sorry, but my computer got a trojan and it  … well … and no pun intended.. it f#$%ed my  ‘puter up.

     We’ll be up and running soon.

     Sorry for the delay.

     xoxo  and maybe a little more from pino … ’cause he’s like that…

 

     Just remember that  i’m  “The VOICE of reality…”  (See examples below!)

     LESS TAXES!  LESS GOVERNMENT!    

     PALIN/LIMBAUGH 2012!!!!!!! 

     and POWELL IS A HIPPIE, NOT A MIDDLE LEANING REPUBLICAN!

 

     It’s hardball now…

Dear Flaco,

daschleAs the Blessed Leader is now looking at his third failed major cabinet post, we should review perhaps the biggest blow so far; the failure of Tom Daschle.  You see, this post was his for the taking.  In fact, if there was a man that was made for Team Obama to head up Health and Human Services, it was Mr. Daschle.  He was the majority leader in the Senate and had the respect of his peers.  Then, when he was kicked out of office by his voters left office he became a public speaker, and champion of a new Federal Health Care system; a reform if you will.  He was, in short, ready to step into the job of a lifetime.  A job that would transform the way in which health care is distributed in this country.  A move that would take it from where it is now, in the hands of the private sector, and move it into the realm of the State.

However, more interesting than the man is the concept.  Universal Health Care.  Socialized Medicine.  Whatever name it goes by, it won’t go–well, away.

Economics:  The study of the use of scare resources which have alternative uses.

This is the definition of economics in a pretty basic book by the name “Basic Economics”.  Fascinating read; I suggest it.  But when you think of that definition, it kind of, or should, strike you what we are dealing with here.  It doesn’t have to be money.  It can be the study of how a teacher runs his classroom.  He only has so much time and resources and, much of it, has alternate uses – he could something else for another child.  Or, you could use it in game theory.We use it everyday in working through our “Honey Do” list….in fact, all of life, really, is a study in economics.  Scare resources; time.  And alternate uses; drinking beer or painting the baby’s room.

health-careAnd so it is with health care.  We have a scare resource; medicine, doctors, nurses and beds.  And all of it has alternate uses.  A nurse could instead choose to become a lawyer, a doctor a fighter pilot.  Money or land spent to build a hospital could be used to build an apartment, or an office building or a football stadium.  It’s all there, this — this study of things.  This demand for something that we don’t have enough of.  And in the end, that’s where we are.  We have a demand for medical services and we don’t have enough supply.    And if we can agree on that, we have agreed on one of the most important aspects of this debate.  An aspect that no politician, Mr. Daschle himself in fact, will ever admit.  Because, you see, when we have less of a thing than we want, we have to somehow hand it out so that someone doesn’t get everything that they want.

Please, please make sure that we are in agreement on this.  We have more need/want than we have supply.  There are more peope that want to see a doctor of some kind that we have ability to see.  And that might be because we have too few docs, or beds or simply time in the day.  Whatever, there is more need/want than supply.

This is important for this reason.  Once we agree on the supply demand thingy, all that’s left is to determine how we ration it.  Once we agree that we simply don’t have enough, all we have to do is determine how we will figure out who won’t get what.  And ya know what?  The single best system for determining that is the market.  Free market.  People will automatically regulate themselves and adjust so that supply meets demand.  It does everywhere else.  The best recent example is gasoline.  Consider this:

I love my bride.  We wake at 06.30 am and get ready for the day together.  Then, we take the kids to school and we go to work where we spend the next 8-10 hours toiling away forspouse the man no more than 50 feet apart.  After work, it’s dinner, the kids and bedtime.  Serious.  From midnight to 23.59, I am withing shouting distance of my wife 95% of the time.  That’s a LOT of  time dammit!  And so it is, that while we work at the same place, eat at the same place and drop off/pickup kids at the same place, I insist that we do NOT carpool.  Brotha needs his minutes yo!  But when gas starting running $3.50 to $4.00 a gallon, I relented.  I would work VO while she went to the office!  hehehe, but you get the point.  I self adjusted as the price became to much to bear, as did the entire market, and low and behold, gasoline went down.

So it is with the health care market.  I have been over the numbers before.  Many many of the “47 million uninsured” are uninsured due to choice!  They choose NOT to obtain that insurance.  Some can afford it but have decided not to obtain it.   Others, LOL, others have the government assistance available to them but refuse to do the needful to get it.  Point is, many Americans don’t WANT it.

And so, we have people come and say that they are going to offer some panacea of Nationalized Health Care.  It sounds good, it does.  But how, when we have accepted that we don’t have enough of it, are we going to provide it to everyone?  How are we going to ration this scare resource so that it gets distributed to people?  The answer, if the state is involved, is through political favors, bribes, wait times or “cost effective” measures.  None of which are better than the system we have today.

Look, is there room for improvement?  Yes.  Most certainly that improvement comes in the form of LESS government and not more.
