91. This kind of attitude Ladies and

Gentleman is why Repubs say liberals hate America. You've heard that right? They honestly believe liberals hate America and some of the people in this thread are just making them look right.

Listen, I know we have problems here. Hell I complain all the time about stuff too. I can't however say "America" deserves what it gets. "America" didn't do this. Corrupt people in government did this, and some of what I'm talking about was done to cater to the 1%. Personally I have no problem with people making a lot of money. All the power to them. What I don't like is if those people rolling in money stepped on the "little guy" to do it, then I believe that they are assholes and quite frankly don't deserve their money. However, there are a lot of good people here too. We need to wish better for our country for them.

The health care thing is disturbing to me and I'm extremely pissed off at the government, acting like single payer can't be done. That's bullshit. Maybe they should try sending less money overseas and take care of it's citizens like every other developed country - they manage just fine, their people aren't dropping like flies because the health care is so bad. Even countries less developed than ours manage. My parents went from being able to afford their insurance premiums and had affordable copays to them having to pay $4,000 in copays this month alone. My dad just retired early because he's disabled so he doesn't qualify for Medicare just yet. I'm not talking about him even having operations. He has an infection in his leg that won't heal and he sees a specialist. He's in that office for 10 minutes while they change his bandage and he ends up with $4,000 in copays. Insane! I think they are going to be in serious debt before it's all said and done.

However, we have reason to be fortunate too. I'm sure most of us don't know what it's like to live in severe poverty. I'm not taking about living in a sparsely furnished studio apartment eating Ramen noodles every night. That sucks, don't get me wrong. In some other countries, people live in hellish conditions worse than anything that's happened here in a long time.

I have much to complain about, but it could be worse, I just hope it doesn't get that way.
