Last week I was visiting one of my favorite mommy blogs and MIT was quite cryptic in her post. Made me itch a little, trying to figure out what she was saying. I'm comfortable, though, knowing I'll hear more in September.
Then OHmommy weighed in in the comment section, asking her to be careful. "Careful" is such a delightful word. It's a pretty red flag. I'm a bull. Snorting, pawing, gauging the distance and the amount of damage I can do. I love the word careful. And I love the way OHmommy talked about healthcare reform in a recent post.
This. THIS. This is what OHmommy referenced in her comment. Our White House is soliciting emails from the general populace concerning any badmouthing of the current healthcare policy. I'm supposed to turn you, my blogland neighbors, in to my government, for exercising your freedom of speech when you speak out against their policy. I know they couch it in polite language, making it sounds like they might want to just point out the truth of the matter. BUT. They're asking me to report people for speaking what they think.
I'm sorry, but I don't know what the truth is when it comes to this administration. I don't know what the facts are concerning their policy. I'm not 100% sure anyone really does. I'm supposed to 1) Believe the politicians when they tell me what will happen in the future; and 2) Rat out my friends when they question or exercise their freedom of speech.
Yeah. So everyone out there? Send the link to this post to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org Go for it. Why the heck not? I don't agree with this administration on their policies. I certainly don't agree with the healthcare decisions they're making. I don't like what they're doing any way you slice it. I DON'T TRUST THEM.
I suppose I could report CNN for posting this article. Certainly they shouldn't go telling people that they'll lose their choices with the proposed plan. And they highlight the "2,000 pages of tortured legal language" I'd have to wade through to understand the policy. Maybe I should get a copy. And a lawyer to interpret.
Change needs to happen. I'll grant that. But I don't want the goverment running my healthcare. Period. And I don't like that the government is spending billions and billions of dollars every time I turn around. This kind of change is exactly why I didn't vote for this administration.
I'm done. No more political posts.
Until I write again ...
