Now, You Get Mad?

Courtesy of Christian Struzan and Facebook:

YOU WANT TO GET MAD? We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, but now you get mad! You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed..

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn’t get mad when, using reconciliation; a trillion dollars of our tax dollars were redirected to insurance companies for Medicare Advantage which cost over 20 percent more for basically the same services that Medicare provides.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark, and our debt hit the thirteen trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans… oh hell no.



  1. I'm going to have to "share" this on facebook when I get home. No telling what kinds of reactions it will get from my red state Oklahoma friends, though.

  2. I ganked it from Facebook in the first place! LOL!

    do you KNOW that we HAVE to have insurance now, have to find a way to afford will be against the law to not have it..and we can be jailed IF we don't pay for it???? some of us can not no way no how afford health insurance! the goverment is gonna make us PAY for it.. we can barely survive in our home now.
    I don't know how it is going to work in the end, BUT I do know it sounds crappy. I want health care choices for everyone that are affordable,but I don't want to see it mandatory!
    and I am not mad..I am sad..sad that our country has become what it just isn't the same anymore.

  4. Terri, there will be subsidies for people like us who can't afford it. It would be better to have universal coverage, ie, national health, but the wingnuts are so against it.

    If I had your health issues, I would die under our present system. It's not right.
