While I am bent over…

Please, just get the fucking me over with, so I can get on with the normal business of being poor and not having money. Getting sick of government! Local Government, state government, national government. Between all of them, they have their hands so far down my pocket they are coming out my ass. I mean really, just think about how much each of these governments are taking from you every day. The national government takes nearly a quarter of every paycheck. Then there is tax on everything. Every single thing you buy it seems like it is taxed now. Want to have heat in house and not fucking die? Well, you gottta pay taxes and fees for that electricity. Want to keep that food you just bought(and some of it, you managed to already pay taxes on, at the store), now you got pay more taxes and fees for the electricity, plus we got a bunch of taxes from you, when you purchased the damn refrigerator.

Can someone, anyone, explain exactly what these governments are actually doing for me, besides taking money out of my damn pocket left and right?

I just found out that our income tax return this year is 1/3 what is was last year. Why? Because my youngest son turned 17. Are we supposed to kick them out when they are 17? Seems like that is what our government is telling us. Or does the government think that 17 kids no longer need to eat or wear clothes? How exactly is this government looking out for families, when this is the message they are sending to the people?

I am telling you right now, they are laughing at the stupid fucking idiots they think we are. They are robbing us blind and we keep letting them do it. This is no longer a government by the people for the people. It is government by the crooks supported and controlled by big business.

I did not have health insurance but still managed to lose my doctor yesterday. How? Because now we make too much money. That is funny, because my wife has to work two jobs now, because the raise she got at her first job cost her $3000.00 a year in income. That’s right, her “raise” cost her money because when they gave out a raise, after 7 yrs. of no raises, they cut all overtime. Now she is worked to death at her first job, because she does not have enough time to get her job done, and is always behind and, she has to work a second job to cover the loss of income, just to pay the bills. So because she made perhaps as much as $1000. more this year, we no longer qualify for a discounted doctors visit, that we qualified for last year. Why? Oh you know why! Obama care! That’s right because Texas is a republican state, we have to do everything in our power to make Obama look bad, over a fucking bill we helped pass. Who gives a fuck about the actual citizens of the united states? We don’t care about them! We don’t give a fuck if you are 15k in debt and only make 34k a year. We don’t care if you can pay your bills or if you starve to death, see a doctor, or if you got into debt because of us, in the first place. It is easy to get into that kind of debt when you have to buy groceries and medicine with credit cards, because of no raises, due to a complete collapse of the economy, which we the government not only allowed to happen, but then bailed out all the motherfucking bankers who caused it, with your tax money. So we, the government rewarded those who screwed the people, and we will continue doing so, as long as you allow it.

So while you are stealing money from me left and right and fucking me the ass, just get it over with will you, please. My ass is really getting sore.  I gotta warn you though, I am quickly running out of things for you steal from me, or screw me out of. Oh yeah, you are welcome to come take my right to bear arms!

Which brings me to probably the only part of this rant that may be useful. We need this shit to stop! We need a government by the people for the people. The type of government that our fore-fathers envisioned and there is only one way that is going to happen. We need to end this one! Get rid of every single politician and set up a government run but computers who cannot be swayed by big business money and lobbying. A government who can accept votes from every single American citizen via phone or internet. This is the only way we are going to end this crap. How much more are you willing to take? How much money do you got to donate to a government who takes every opportunity to screw you over?

Sit down with a pen and paper, and go through your paychecks, tax returns, utility bills, receipts for purchases,(food, gas, medicine, clothes, etc.) and figure out how much you spent in taxes last year on everything, then begin to realize just how much they are really taking from you. Then realize they are taking all of it without representing you. You think we had taxation without representation before the American revolution? What they had back then, was a dream, compared to how badly they are screwing everyone now.

Realize also, that the medicare and social security you pay, might as well be taxes too, because most of us will never see any of that money ever again. The government has even proclaimed that these programs will fail. Yet, they keep taking the money. Why? Because they use this money for whatever they want. They have been doing it for years. That is why these programs are going broke. Because the government is stealing the money to use for whatever pet project they want. Both of these programs should have huge surpluses. How many years have the baby boomers been paying into both of these? They have even made it nearly impossible for people to get any of the money back. If you have not worked in 10 years, say perhaps because you stayed at home raising kids,(apparently that is not work and it is bad for you to raise your kids to not go out and shoot people)and you become disabled while doing so, you cannot get disability. Because you are disabled, you cannot earn the credits to be able get disability. So basically, whatever money you payed into social security, before becoming a stay at home parent, you cannot collect. So tell me again, how exactly is the government looking out for, or supporting families, when these rules clearly show they do not believe raising kids is work? I am so sick of being penalized for doing the right thing.

Me, I am poor, my wife works two jobs because the bills have to be payed, and I cannot work because of 3 different conditions that qualify me for disability, and still the governments continue to find new and awesome ways of screwing me. Perhaps we should just round up all the poor people and shoot all of them? That is what it feels like the government is saying to me. I Believe I have gotten your message, Big Brother! I just have wonder how long it will take the rest of the nation to catch up.

Wake me up when you are done fucking me. I am really growing bored with it.

Health Care in America…

I am sure if I wanted to, I could post a link or two, to other posts and articles about health care in America.But then I would be left with which links to post and how many to post entering into my mind. You would have to be totally blind and stupid to not know anything about this subject and that there are way too many links to post regarding this matter. (There is a poll at the bottom of the post if you just feel like voting)

With that in mind, no links to outside articles or posts will be included in this post. It is not really required anyway as I can approach this subject from a personal point of view.I am one of those 46 million people often spoke about as the un-insured.

Most of the time when things are spoken of and facts and figures are given, a face or name is never given or viewed and perhaps it is human nature to do such things. However, in doing so we tend to take the humanity away from the subject and it losses it’s true meaningfulness. With this post, it is my goal to bring the personal nature of health care into the light and hopefully the humanity of the situation will be more readily viewable for all.

I, having no health care insurance plan, do dread trips to the doctor. For the pre-knowledge that every expense shall have to be paid for out of pocket with cash on hand, does make a visit to the doctor something to deeply fear. “What if I do not have enough money?” and “What if I spend too much, how will the bills be paid?” are questions that usually enter the mind before you have even entered the doctors office. Having these types of concerns must be pretty common though as being a house-husband and raising kids does not garner any type of health care insurance. I guess raising good kids that will help improve America’s future is not on the high priority list for health insurance though.

So knowing I have no health insurance and having kids to take care of means that doctors visits are at the very bottom of things needed to be done. If going to the doctor means you cannot afford to feed the kids or pay the electric bill, then there will be no doctor visit. That is why it was 8 months I waited to see a doctor about my problems. In October of 2008, I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and a multi-nodular goiter. After seeing a regular doctor and 2 endocrinologists I was diagnosed with Grave’s disease also. Yes, Hyperthyroidism and Grave’s disease are both potentially fatal if not treated in a timely manner. If you have done the math you can clearly see it has been nearly 9 months since diagnosed and 17 months since the problems 1st started.

A couple of the doctors were even nice enough to inform me that I probably should be dead or at least been in the hospital by now.

You might thinking that this problem should have been fixed by now and I certainly could not agree with you more, but this is the result of no health care insurance. Until my medicine completely stops working and I end up going into cardiac arrest or coma and have to be taken the the emergency room, there will be no treatment of my condition. Current law only requires hospitals to treat patients through the emergency room. Basically, I have to hope to be at risk of dying in order to get the treatment I need!

Of course, this chain of events has made me look back on my life and wonder if deciding to stay at home and devote myself to raisng good kids( you know, those kids with respect for their elders and good grades) was such a good decision. After all, if I would have decided to work instead I might have been able to afford health insurance. Something is obviously wrong here when a person, born in America, who worked in America, and who did his best to raise kids that will improve America has to doubt his decision to be un-selfish and stay at home. I feel like I did something wrong and am now being punished for it.

Well, I did say that this post was going to be personal and I hope that I clearly spoke of how it is to be one of the 46 million who is without health care insurance. I realize that no matter what I say, there will always be those with strong opinions and they will want to say something negative about this post. Before you do and waste both your time and mine, keep in mind a few things. If your reply is vulgar, rude, or unconstructive it will be deleted.  With that in mind feel free to speak your mind or vote in the poll below.

Thx for taking the time to read this,

Axe

Christmas Time…

I usually do not take the time to blog about serious issues anymore. Mostly jokes and pictures are posted here and for a good reason. Anything of real substance is mostly ignored.

 However, occasionally I get a wild hair up my ass and decide to waste my time posting something serious and it looks like this is one of those times.

If you came to this post looking for a laugh, you should leave now. If you came here looking for some cool picture to look at… again, go ahead and leave.

Now that the casual people are gone I can now approach this subject knowing I won’t be wasting anyone else’s time but my own.

Christmas time should be a time of joy and giving. A time for sharing and love. A fun time of the year. I wish that were true of this year.

For more than 18 yrs., me and my wife, have managed to provide gifts for the kids at Christmas. Sadly, that is not the case this year. This is due to a number of things that have happened this year. My wife’s employer has barely made any profits and has made layoffs due to the housing market slump. Her raise was eaten by the rising price of everything due to gas prices soaring. The price for cigarettes in our state more than doubled. We have been broke every single week this year and there will be no Christmas bonus from work.

As a result we will not even be putting up the Christmas tree. Maybe by not putting it up it will remind the kids less of this Christmas being missed.

I realize there are others who are worse off but I just hate to see the kids suffer through no fault of their own. Things will get better soon, I hope…. or I guess I can just stop eating my one meal a day.

I wonder if there are any other in the same boat? If so, feel free to speak up with a comment.
