The wife was having one of those parkie days, so I made a nice lunch, and for dinner I made a kick ass roast and gravy (she told me what spices to add of course).
I helped my daughter with her homework, cleaned up dinner, and when daughter was finally in bed broke out the whiskey.
So what does this have to do with politics???
When our govt needs me, they raise my taxes. I kick in money to help us all to progress and grow, I know it takes us all working together to make it in this world. In some cases they lower taxes, mainly on the rich of course.
I stepped up as needed, for someone not able to do so. I am in a relationship, I bring in an income. She does not.
Where would she and I be if I called her a welfare queen (heard this on radio today) and just left her high and dry? Marriage means we work together for our goals, in sickness and in health. And I see it the same with government. When I am down and need help - you are there for me. And when you are down and needing money, I am there kicking more in for you.
You - the RW - keep asking for more money to pay for a war, and yet BITCH A BLUE STREAK when fellow citizens need money - go make it yourself you say, start a business, work 3 jobs, etc. But damn - when you need it for killing people you are at the dole begging for more.
Maybe if I started killing people you would help me out when I need it, instead of calling people like me leeches and lazy. Maybe if I was a corporation in debt to the tune of billions you would bail me out, but if I am a man out of work and struggling you call me a lot of bad things.
So I got a sick wife, got laid off of two jobs in a month, and am trying to live off of unemployment - and to you I am the bad guy for not working harder. This after I spent years working my ass off.
You want me to be able to stand on my own two feet, but you won't even try when it comes to the Iraq war. Give us more and more....and for WHAT????
Don't bitch to me anymore that YOUR'S is a just cause, don't tell me to make it on my own while asking me to shell out nearly a trillion dollars for war, and don't ever tell me I don't support the troops when you won't even support fellow Americans. It is getting old.
