So, I'm part of this Dancing with the Stars group and all the people on there have done lately is bitch about who's "rumored" to be on it.

This article pisses me off. I understand that the news media has a left lean. I get it. But what irritates me is when you CLAIM to be unbiased and shove your thoughts in as the truth.

This is about the Arizona law. The one which makes it legal for the police officers to arrest someone they find to be an illegal in our country. What people fail to realize is that this was already a NATIONAL law but the NATIONAL government is not enforcing it. Arizona took it a step further and created their own that made it mandatory for them to arrest illegal aliens.

Here's the issue I have. People from other countries, Britain, France, China, all have to go through the proper channels to be citizens. They file work visas and the like and do it the right way. However, the Mexicans are coming into this country at alarming rates. There are statistics that shows that where these illegals set up, crime rises, because groups of them are joining/belong to gangs. So, Arizona did what it had to do to protect those that legally live here.

The solution is not amnesty. It's just not. These people have broken the law so you want to reward them by making them citizens? What kind of fucking sense does that make? Also, do you realize that we're the only country in the world that has the anchor baby law? Meaning that if people from another country have a baby inside this country then the baby is automatically a citizen of the U.S.? It's different elsewhere. If the parents are from the U.S., go into Germany and have a baby, the baby is still considered a U.S. citizen. This law was never intended for this. It was intended for slaves and to make sure that they were seen as property of their owners. It should have been abandoned years ago, but it wasn't.

I know that some of you will disagree with my opinions, but I really don't care. The National Government isn't lifting a hand to help states like Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. The people of Arizona have grown tired of the troubles that the illegal aliens are causing their state and decided to do something about it.

The truth is, there is no real easy, real simple solution for this. You can build a wall, but it won't work. Can't give amnesty because they've already broken the law and to reward them for it is some bullshit. That's like telling someone that robs a house, hey, you broke the law, so we're just going to go ahead and give you all the stuff in it and the house. How much sense does that make?

I've been pretty quiet on the political front for a while now, mainly because I just can't believe what is actually happening. So, here are my thoughts, agree with them or don't, that's your choice.

I don't expect this national health care plan to go through. Mainly because you have 44 house democrats who say that they will not vote for a health care bill with a public option and 54 won't vote for one without it. Not to mention that the republicans are almost all against the public option. So, it'll die in the house or it will die in the Senate. The speech last night didn't answer any questions for me. Instead, I'm still left with several:

How are you going to pay for it?

If Medicare is so evil and is failing, why use it as an example as a government program that's worked? If it worked, why not simply expand it?

He'd been saying that he was going to cover 45 million people without health insurance, but last night he said 34 million? Who did you cut out? Illegal immigrants, maybe? And if that's the case, why not admit it? Most Americans would be happy to hear that!!

Truth is, that while this sort of system may work in England and France, it won't work here! We're different. Our country isn't set up to do this. People in those countries come HERE when they need emergency medical procedures!

I heard the most horrible story the other day, and I want to share it with you guys, and it's from a friend of the family. Keep in mind that my sister in law had a C-section and her friend Jessica had a C-section after being in labor only 4 hours, for the sake of the baby because they didn't think she would ever be able to deliver.

So, this guy lives in Canada and is enrolled in the medical plan there. His wife was nine months pregnant and went into labor on like Tuesday. They kept waiting for her to be fully dilated and it just wasn't happening, but they didn't want to do a C-section because of cost. The husband even asked about a C-section but was told that it wasn't prudent to do one, this is 20 hours into labor! So, after the woman is in labor for 72 hours, they finally decided that she wasn't going to be able to deliver the baby vaginally and allowed her to have a C-section. 72 HOURS because they felt it was CHEAPER to let this woman suffer. Jessica had one after 4 hours! Tell me how that is what's in the best interest of the patient.

Look, I'm sure we all have horror stories about stuff like this. But, I know from my own experience that I would much rather have an emergency test done quickly rather than six months down the road. About four years ago, I went to the gyno for a papsmear, fun, right? Not. Anyway, as she was pressing on my abdomen, she looks at me all concerned and goes, "We're scheduling you for an ultrasound because I feel a what I think might be fibroid tumors." Two hours later, I'm getting an ultrasound and find out that it wasn't tumors, just me being fat. However, had it been fibroids, I would have been very happy to know that I at least knew immediately and not six months from now. Could you imagine waiting six months? Really? I would be going out of my mind if I had to wait that long?

And what will this do to those people who need treatments for cancer? Especially the elderly? Are we really going to decide that they've lived their lives and it's easier to save someone young than to waste time and money on their health? Really? Think about your parents. Your grandparents. Do you want someone telling you that, "well Granny's had a good life, but we think its best if you just let her go"?

My grandmother was never sick in my whole life until she got pneumonia and fell in the bathroom and broke her foot, which took her to the hospital, where they admitted her. She was in there for 18 days before she passed away. Are you telling me, really telling me, that you think they should have let her die rather than treating her? Even if the outcome was death? Are you seriously going to tell me that my grandmother had lived her life and instead of trying to do everything they could to not only bring back a wife, but mother and grandmother, that it would be best to allow her to die? If you say yes, then FUCK YOU! Imagine you're own family. Put yourself in someone else's shoes you piece of shit and grow the heart you claim to have that bleeds all over any fucking cause someone throws in front of you.

It is not your decision when someone should die. It is not the governments decision when someone should die. It's ridiculous to even suggest that a person should hold that kind of power over another.

So, let me say this, and make it very clear. Those that support this live in a fantasy world. You're blinded by your desire to make everyone equal. Guess what? IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN! There are always inequalities in life! Life isn't fair. Let me repeat. LIFE ISN'T FUCKING FAIR! And if this option is going to be so fucking wonderful and we'll all go running through fields, skipping and happy and just gosh, perfect, then why aren't the people writing these bills willing to put themselves on it? They don't want this. They'll get to keep their coverage the way it is. So, try to peddle that this is a good option for this country somewhere else.

If you disagree with me, I don't give a fuck. If you think I'm spewing right rhetoric, it's not rhetoric if it's true! It's just shit you don't want to hear because it might destroy your perfect little image of this abomination.

Can you tell I'm pissed off?

If you want to know what the health care system will look like from a doctor's perspective travel over to [livejournal.com profile] vashka_kat's journal, to this post in particular.

Here we go. I'm going to talk about it. If you disagree with me, I don't actually care. But here are the facts. California implimented socialized medicine and the state is bankrupt and asking for a hand out to cover it's ass.

You will have FEWER doctors than you do now because they plan to cap their pay. Why would anyone want to go through like 10 years of medical training and rack up hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial aid to pay for school if they will never be able to make enough money to pay it off. They wouldn't. Doctors, nurses, emts, nursing assisants will all be things of the past and will be hard to come by because who wants to really work that hard and hardly get paid for it. In my opinion, this group is underpaid as it is. They save lives, and are probably some of the most under appreciated people in the country.

They're telling you that you'll have a choice in if you want to enroll in the system or keep your health insurance you're getting from your employer. But your employer will have to pay extrodinary fees to have their people insured because the government is going to TAX them for it. By not allowing you to enroll in the NATIONAL health care they're going to make your employer pay for it, big time. So, what person wants to hand out their money that was made into giving their employees insurance. None. So do you know what happens? They cancel your really good insurance and you have to enroll in the National Health Care system. And what happens when people stop supporting insurance companies? They die out. So, if the insurance companies go to the way side, that means everyone is enrolled in this service. But then you have an incredible burden on the system that can never be met.

So what then? There has to be a way to stymie what's going on. The first thing that will happen is that the elderly will receive less care. They've lived their lives, it's time to let the youth have it. So, those of you who have parents older than, say, 60 years old, they're screwed. If they're sick, they will be made comfortable. If you don't believe me that this is the case, look at Hilary Clinton's health care plan. THIS WAS IN IT! So, you're elderly are being made comfortable and preparing to die, because that's really all that's left for them. So, who next once the elderly are taken care of and you still have too many people on the system. Well, how about they drop the age to anyone over 50! Don't say they can't drop it! He's already dropped the dollar amount he considered wealthy from $250,000 to $100,000, so, drop it from 60 to 50 and anyone with a really bad medical condition that will cost a lot of money to treat...well, we think it's best if you just prepare yourself for what's coming.

Some of you can say I'm over exaggerating, but this was already proposed. It was proposed by Hilary during her husband's presidency. All Obama's doing is dressing it up with his pretty words. We're being taken in. We're being told to bend over and take it.

Mark my words, really listen to me, because in six months time, after this crappy plan is put into motion, we, as a country will be completely and totally bankrupt. And who is waiting in the wings to buy anything and everything American? China. Total domination is coming!

Hugo Chavez, dictator of Venezuela, said, and I quote:

"Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right."

So, what does it mean to you that a dictator thinks he and Fidel Castro are closer right than he is? Scares the hell out of me.

I'm curious about something:

How do those of you in the medical field ([livejournal.com profile] vashka_kat and [livejournal.com profile] jo_herself) feel about socialized medicine? I've yet to hear a medical worker, aside from my mother, answer this question.

For It? Against it?
Fears/Concerns?
Praises?
Do you think it will work? Why/Why not?
How do you think it will impact your job, if at all?
ashleyfanfic: (McCain/Palin)
Okay, so I watched Palin's speech last night, but before I watched her I watch Guillani's speech. Have I ever mentioned how much I liked good ole' Rudy? I thought his speech was fantastic!

He raised an excellent point. Sarah Palin is a mother, true enough. She's been governor and mayor and no one ever questioned whether or not she was capable of raising her family and doing those jobs. So, why are they now questioning if she will be capable of being Vice President and raising her children? Why hasn't anyone asked if Obama will be able to be a good father to his two daughters if he becomes president. I think that's incredibly sexists. A woman can be governor, mayor, senator, business woman, but oh, she can't be Vice President because what about the kids?

I once rallied against Hillary being president. I'm not closed minded enough to know that I mainly did it because I don't like her. I don't. But I recognize that she has done something incredibly admirable by opening the door for women in this country. But never was she questioned about whether or not she would still be a good mother when she was Senator. But she was questioned in other areas. The media bias against her was incredibly sexist. What are we telling women, girls, in this country that 'hey, you can do whatever you want, but don't try to run for public office unless you're a nun, and then your religion will get in the way'.

And I have to say that Palin's speech was superb, but I think Fred Thompson's a few nights ago was awesome!!!
