16. I've always noticed something that is hard to explain....

at least using simple logic. I am a family physician who has worked mostly in Federally Assisted Rural Health Centers, and lately rural Emergency Departments. It's quite clear to all who work in similar places that the new "welfare queens" are rural white men on falsified disability. Throw on top of that the quite lucrative career of acquiring and diverting prescription narcotics with a background of no manufacturing jobs for those who haven't gotten past a high school diploma and you get....much of rural America.

What is amazing to me is the fact that in 15 years of witnessing this, I have yet to meet even one such person who isn't a loud and boisterous Republican fanatic. And when I say none, I mean NONE! It's as if the GOP and Corporate leaders have somehow brainwashed the very people who are the antithesis of their message to still believe it.

Boggles the mind.
