Congress is still on break… It started out like another day of nasty weather all over the country and it does affect the mood but the sun came out and it’s warm, unlike the comments being made by right wing radio hosts, protesters, Republican Politicians and cable. Words still matter, words hurt and this seems to have been lost on a whole lot of people on the right; some on the left as well. The blood pressure of Americans seems to have been pushed up by rhetoric that is just full of mis-information. People need to fact-check not only the news but right-wing talk. We the People, have new laws that will affect our lives, our children and our jobs. The transition for people who previously were denied coverage due to an illness, people who have kids just about to turn 22, usually get dropped will now be able to stay on your insurance until age 26 and as for being a woman… def a pre-existing condition has been dealt with and while some of us didn’t have these new laws in place when we needed them it is with great pride that others will not be subjected to insurance and or health care discrimination; hopefully, all the changes will happen in a positive way; create healthier people and jobs in the future. Anyone with a mom, sister, daughter or wife should celebrate because the new law of the land will just increase her ability to live longer.
Republicans who are radio hosts, on cable news or Political tour campaigns need to know that 53% voted and it was a majority vote for President Obama.
To say politics in the country is experiencing new changes is a joke; it’s upsetting, people seem to have forgotten how bad our economy truly was, why the steps taken were needed and maybe it was worse than what the new Administration was told, is now after months of trying to fix America with Republicans; will do the Peoples business on their own. This includes needing Democrats to get out there to sell HCR, education reform, to promote the positive of a change that really needed to happen. Democrats need to rebut the nonsense that the Media is pushing; or dare i say what opinion news is saying but it isn’t happening much.
Other news maker(s),which, is getting more attention than the Pope and Vatican sex abuse cases, the violence from what seems to be on a new level is, who cheated on who; the politics of it because as we all know Politicians and Entertainers are cheating and in big ways, but the attention to it just seems extreme. I am sorry for the people getting cheated on but everyday Americans go through the same thing and no one spends so much time researching, advertising and or talking about the research… come on; give them respect and privacy not …OMG … it’s offensive. I do think that these women or men deciding to not only spill their guts but to pick up a sizable check for doing so is just as repulsive as the stories themselves; getting 75thou for telling the nastiest story about TW on a radio show was just strange and brings the Media to a whole new low on compassion toward families. We have to question the sincerity of these women; why? because TW and or JJ have been on tv, mags radio, people who know nothing about golf and or motorcycles know these guys … the advice … just say no to the married man HO… getting attorneys and trying to say i didn’t know? im thinking someone should go after these women for breaking up the marriage… there is past examples of married women suing the woman who decided to be so bold as to go after another woman’s man
