"... a significant problem that will affect the average citizen ..." WTF?

How much would universal health care cost? I dunno, but 700 billion might be a good start. Now, I know there are other variables involved, it's not just an item on display at the supermarket of things, but ....

I read this curious quote from dickface, er ... bushfuck, er ... well you know who, over at Democracy Now and I thought WTF?
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Yeah, this is a big price tag, because it’s a big problem. I told our people I don’t want to be timid in the face of a significant problem that will affect the average citizen. You know, some say, well, this is—we could contain this to just the financial community. In my judgment, based upon the advice of a lot of people who know how markets work, this wasn’t going to be contained to just the financial community. This problem could—would spread to the average citizen. You know, you hear them talk about Wall Street and Main Street, well, this is Wall Street plus Main Street, and I’m worried about Main Street.
Like lack of health care doesn't affect the average citizen on Main Street. What an asshole. I was convinced long ago that the man is really just too stupid to know that he's completely full of shit. Two weeks ago everybody in this administration would have laughed at the idea of coming up with 700 billion dollars to do anything. This is why I don't like following politics. The lies and hypocrisy are so thick it defies logic and boggles the mind. And it's all done with a straight face.

How nice it is to see you posting again. I hope you keep it up. Odd how I have more comments when you step in and have your say. I love your pissed off, outraged voice.

But it wasn't too big a problem to spend trillions of dollars on the Iraq war, big oil, and investments while the country pays for the privilege and starves.

Utah, dear, forgive me for not writing. I am so sorry about your arm. You are awesome posting avatars. What a great idea. Talented blog buddy I've got.

I do have an excuse: I'm currently experiencing unemployment just like 7.7% of the rest of California. Forgive me for not writing: my fingers are ruined from writing cover letter after cover letter...

Oh Stella, I'm so sorry. I remember when you started that job and you were busy but jazzed. If all else fails, come live in my little low rent paradise. And in the meantime, use those awesome computing skills from home. I think the best of all possible worlds is to have a skill that allows your to have your freedom cake and eat it too in the comfort of home. Let's keep in better touch. I was staying close to home because I didn't have much energy, thus not much to say. Thanks to my kind and generous administrator when I couldn't even write a post, he would step in and rescue me. But I'm starting to get back to being my pushy self again and I'll be cruising around the blogs have my two cents worth added to the fray.

By the way, I you want some really interesting movies reviews checkout Sitenoise. We are linked at the hip on my site--it an easy way into his fascinating world of movies you won't see reviewed anywhere else. Plus, he's a hell of a good writer. And a good friend, too. And I'm not just kissing your ass Phillip. Ask L B. I'm no good at all in the ass kissing department.

Universal health care is socialist, unlike this government takeover which is not socialist. I'm glad I could clear all that up.

Actually, Universal Health Care would not cost $700 B. It would be less. Then the leftover could go to building AFFORDABLE housing, rather than LUXURY housing. Or something.

Utah, I love you. Now can you teach me how to twitter?

Yeah, this is a big price tag, because it’s a big problem. I told our people I don’t want to be timid in the face of a significant problem that will affect the average citizen. HE'S the one that needs to solve this problem: Hoover/Bushit/Hitler II created this mess by starting an unnecessary war.

I'm OK, dear Utah. Jood and randall, hi!
