>My Uncle on Health Care Reform

“…it is definitely is a sad day when the voice of millions of the most ignorant and selfish of citizens is controlled by a political party that has been bought… lock, stock and barrel by a private group of people in a protected non-competitive atmosphere who profit in the billions of dollars over the sickness of their fellow Americans and the selective denial of care to others.”

Watch out Action Slacks and Hyperdrive, there’s a wiki for TV script writing, pretty soon every Tom, Dick and Harry will have their own series. Thank God there’s no info on the web about online marketing, otherwise I’d be screwed.

and for gosh sakes, will someone please start using the star rating system at the bottom of posts? even if you hate a post, i’d love to know. it’s anonymous so i won’t be taking retribution.

>Neo-McCarthyism Boiling Over

>

“Liberals hate real Americans that work and achieve and believe in God.”
-Representative Hayes of North Carolina [source]

“I firmly believe the Democratic majority wants the American public to
suffer and to hurt.”
-Representative Kuhl from New York [source]

Welcome to Neo-McCarthyism. Fear and hate is the order of the day. It’s another witch hunt for those members of our society and government that are liberal commie pinkos, bent on the destruction of our society.

Let’s not kid ourselves: we already have “socialism.” We have government funded health care for children in most states, we have a federal library system and we pay property taxes to pay for state-run schools. Socialism is actually a very Christian ideal (Acts 2:44-45), but regardless, no one is trying to turn America into a communist state, just create some other badly-needed social programs. Our “free market” system is not even close to a true free market, and it’s largely failing us now.

I work, achieve and believe in God and make less than $250,000/year. Obama is a Christian with one house and a car or two. That’s big part of why I’m voting for him, he truly understands and supports people like me. I want the American public to have affordable, quality health care and better wages and job security. Only Obama has a real and dynamic plan to significantly improve these problems.

If we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. McCarthyism from the ’50s was an embrassing time for our nation. Let’s not revisit that.

Just a little update

Hello, all! I just wanted to give you a peek into some of the things that I have been busy with lately, and hopefully some of the things yet to come!

Most recently I have been researching the correlation between Bic pens and the migration patterns of Canadian geese. To be truthful, it is far less exciting than the title would lead you to believe. Basically, as the use of Bic pens increases, the further the migration routes used by geese drift to the east. I suspect that I will find the cause of this once I further research election cycles.

I am also in the planning stages of a prime-time sitcom, “What’s up now?” I don’t have very much at this time, again, only in the planning stages. I allowed myself to ask the daring question, “What happens when a 4th generation florist falls into the world of underground espionage and mixed-martial arts street fighting? Will she wilt, or will we find out that this, Rose, not only has her thorns, but teeth as well?” Just writing about it makes me giddy; I cannot wait to give you the answers! Stay tuned!

So yeah, sorry that I have been out of touch. As you can tell, I have been up to my cute button nose with work and life. I truly hope that you are all doing well, and I would love to hear from you!

Majestically yours,
-Ari Gronning

Re: Just a little update

Yeah, I was just thinking about that, too. “Doesn’t Erik want to kill me? Or is it *need* to kill me? I can never remember, despite that poorly placed reminder tattooed on my back.”

All of your sobbing reminds me of a particularly wet & rainy day on the eastern seaboard several years ago. I was with my mistress at the time, Helga. A lovely woman of Peruvian descent. She smelled of lilacs in the summer, and barley in the winter, and had a sense of adventure to match. On this particular day, though, she had managed to get her parasol wet. “Leave it,” I exclaimed, “no woman should have to bear the bourdon of a wet parasol,” I explained. It proved to be marvelous day. Remind me, when we see each other next, and I shall produce for you pictures of my Latina flower, Helga. Delight will be yours, I suspect.
