Hey Soldier, Pay Your Own Medical Bills!

Our government will bail you out with taxpayer money if you brought more house than you could afford and are now facing foreclosure. Our government will bail out your business that is failing due to poor management, excessive bonuses and a poor business model. Our government is even trying to ensure that illegal immigrants and their children have health insurance benefits.

Now, this same government that his handing out taxpayer money hand over fist, taxpayer money that has not actually yet been collected but rather will be collected from future generations, is now contemplating having military personnel injured while on duty pay their own medical bills. Eric Shinseki,Veterans Affairs Secretary confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance. Lawmakers told the administration that it would be “dead on arrival” if sent to Congress.

A Scary Growing Trend

kkkHere we rant and bitch and gripe about things that piss us off, no big deal.  I feel that we have legitimate reasons but we don’t expect everyone to agree with us about everything.  Politics, the economy, jobs, etc. it’s the stuff everyone bitches about but today I came across an article about a new and growing trend that is actually scary.  It seems the there is a growing rise in hate groups and I’m talking about the hard core groups, since the election and even before, no doubt.

- Report: the number of hate groups grew by 54 percent since 2000
- Obama’s election win fueled some to join hate groups, study found
-The FBI’s uniform crime report found 7,624 hate crime incidents in 2007
-Obama is a “visual aid” that helps lure new members, says neo-Nazi

Groups like the KKK are seeing a rise in membership that is unprecedented in modern times.  Just look at the history of the KKK and imagine them taking hold today.  Scary.

Now, if you’re going to have a problem with Obama, fine, but for God’s sake, make sure it’s for the right reasons!  If you don’t like his politics, fine, but if you just dislike, or hate the man for his skin color, that’s just wrong.  It seems like that is the galvanizing issue for too many people.

On the day after Obama’s historic election, more than 2,000 people joined his Web site, a remarkable increase from the approximately 80 new members a day he was getting, Black said. His Web site, which was started in 1995, is one of the oldest and largest hate group sites. The site received so many hits that it crashed after election results were announced. The site boasts 110,000 registered members today, Black said.
