Enough Said Aug 29

Save the best for last Aug 19

Just caught the tail end of a documentary on New Zealand and its sea’s.

It was great timing as it reminded me of who i am and where i am from.

We may be the youngest country on earth and its really easy to dismiss us, and you know what, thats fine.

Coming from where i do, there is a green that is really green and a blue that really is blue.  You want to see clear blue skies.  Come down under, they are so blue they hurt the eyes.

And to see real green come and see where there is pollution just how green can really be.  You have already seen vista’s of snow white mountains in the cinema.  Trust me, that was just a taste.

come down under and see what its really about.  I know I’m going back.

Socialism and Healthcare Aug 11

Where the hell did American get the idea that state provided heath care was a form of socialism.

Have they not actually looked outside there borders and seen that all the other 1st and 2nd world countries bascially have state run healthcare.

And apparently according to the statistics we have better health care for all, costing less.  Umm does anyone else but me see an issue here?

I have so many things to say here coming from a ‘socialist’ provided health care system, lived in three other countries were as a law abiding tax payer i got that same service.

And if you doubt me I now live in Japan and have been treated for cancer under there health care system.

To any american who wonders.  My question.  Who benefits from your current health insurance system  You or the health insurance companies.

These are the same companies that can deny paying, delay paying or only part pay.  Now who is losing out here, you or me.  I pay the same amount of tax and receive outstanding health care (trust me a few round of chemo and you get to know whats going on), or you the american public who can’t leave jobs for lack of health insurance, or just don’t have it.

Also whats going on the health insurance opponent who is turning around and asking for donations to his health care as he lost his job.

Come on, prove to us that you really are not that stupid.

Sarah Palin and the Truth Aug 11

Seem to be two very disconnected items.

I haven’t said much on the blog for a while, but having watched this women in action for the last week since she resigned as governor has really got me wondering.

During here swan song speech she made two things really obvious.

1.  Will the main stream media stop making things up.

2.  Leave her and the new governors family out of politics.

 

You know what almost fair enough.  But what does she do on her facebook account a few days later.  She makes a statement saying that the Obama administration wants to put her down syndromes child in front of a ‘death panel’.

Two things here Sarah.  Firstly you criticize the media that you hate so much, yet bring your child Tring into the argument.  Who is putting whose family into the media.  If you were so concerned about the media and your family why bring Trig into it.  Or was it a way of making a statement that would not be considered for its complete hierocracy.

Second Sarah, you made a statement about death panels which has been proved to a complete lie and yet you made a statement about it.  Okay you didn’t make it up yourself, but you certainly perpetrated the  made up story.

 

Just these two very simple items put together must make anyone wonder how honest are you really.  you say one thing when it suits you and the opposite when it suits you.

 

I will not use this blog to slam republican or conservative readers as that would immediately dismiss my arguments as just left wing crap.

I’m not actually an american so there a no direct affects to me on what happens, but i do object to just plain out stupid comments, and Sarah, the next time you want to make a political statement, how about ask all those people righting for you to check if you aren’t opposing your own position, or just saying something that is a total lie.

You asked for the media to stop making up stories.  How do you feel when they report on the stories that you have made up, or repeat knowing stories that are made up.
