WANT A FREE HOUSE ?


(This is a lesson for the hood winked.)

I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the coming implementation of the health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued: They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard a young man exclaim, "Isn't Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing the sick."

A young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, "Yeah, and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market wouldn't work for health care."

Another said, "The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate."

At this, I had more than enough. I arose from my seat, mustering all the restraint I could find, and approached their table. "Please excuse me; may I impose upon you for one moment?"

They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.

"I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?"

They looked at each other in astonishment. "Why would you do something like that?" asked a young man, "There isn't anything for free in this world." They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my point.

"I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money whatsoever. Anyone interested?"

In unison, a resounding "Yeah" fills the room.
"Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money-free bargain."

I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust.

"I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules."

Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their faces.

The perky young woman asked, "What are the rules?"

I smiled and said, "I don't know. I have not yet defined them. However, it is a free home that I offer you."

They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, "What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man."

I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. "I am serious, this is a legitimate offer."

They gaped at me for a moment.

"I'll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?" boasted the youngest among them.

"Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?" I asked.

The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. "Oh yeah! Where do I sign up?"

I took a napkin and wrote, "I give this man my home, without the burden of financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction."

I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature.

"Where are the keys to my new house?" he asked in a mocking tone of voice.

All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.

"Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of your friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere to from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day. You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm, no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do, think as I do and do it with blind faith. These are my terms. Here are your keys." I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumbfounded.

"Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?" the young man appeared irritated.

"You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement."

The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people.

"You can shove that stupid deal up your a** old man. I want no part of it!" exclaimed the now infuriated young man.

'You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends. You cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short, I am your Master."

At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.

After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true intent.

"What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn, and for that which you did not earn, you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away. Therefore, it is not freedom at all."

With that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. "This is the nature of your new health care legislation."

I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation -- and was surprised by applause.

The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand enthusiastically and said, "Thank you, Sir. These kids don't understand Liberty ."

He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, "You earned this one. It is an honor to pick up the tab."

I shook his hand in thanks, leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled and sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.

Pro-Lifers' Double Standards

Ok...here's another un-politically correct blog post.
I'm really sick and tired of receiving emails from so called "pro-life" organizations about federal funds being used to fund abortions....but yet they complain when federal funds are to be withheld from any state that discriminates against a hospital, insurance provider, or individual doctors and nurses for refusing to participate in abortion! It's quite ok to federally fund those who won't give a legal form of medical service but not ok to federally fund those who do! That my dear reader...is MEDICAL DOUBLE STANDARDS!

I say that abortion should be put back into the medical arena where it belongs. Take it out of the political, religious and morality arenas and put it into the medical sector where it's between the patient and their doctor and no one else's business!
If you believe that life starts at conception...than that's YOUR belief to have. But you have no right to force your belief upon others!
If your religious belief is that it's wrong to have an abortion, then don't have one. But you have no right to force your religious belief upon others!
If you believe that your tax money shouldn't pay for a medical service that you don't believe in, well I say, welcome to the real world because I have no children in school, but I'm taxed to support an educational system that I don't use! My point is, our taxes pay for things that we don't necessarily agree with or use all the time...get over it!
Like it or not....abortion is LEGAL. As it should be because it's a MEDICAL situation between a woman and her doctor and she has the right to decide how to handle it...period! Your moral and religious beliefs are for YOU and has no right to interfere with another's. I'm really sick and tired of hearing all this religious double standards that it's NOT ok for anyone to interfere with your religious belief system but it's ok for your religious belief system to interfere with other's lives and make decisions for them when they contradict your beliefs!
If federal funds are wrong to fund medical entities that perform a legal medical service then it is also wrong to fund medical entities that refuse to perform that same legal medical service! Then all this starts going down a slippery slope. Because where do you draw the line? 
In some religions, it's not kosher to circumcise baby boys, so should that medical service be done away with? And I don't want to hear, well circumcision is quite different from LIFE...a baby. Well once again, I'll reiterate...that's YOUR belief...whether it be moral or religious, and not necessarily another's. And just because you define life differently, doesn't give you the right to define it for someone else. Life, to be life, as we understand it has to have viability. Viability is being able to live outside the uterus and sustain itself. Until the fetus can do that, it has no life. And an embryo has no capability to be viable at all. So, when you apply your moral and/or religious belief about life before the embryo/fetus can actually sustain it, you give it properties it cannot actually be attributed to have. And once again, it's YOUR religious morality that is assigning these properties and there's absolutely no proof that this is the correct deduction. In fact, there IS physical proof that an eight week old embryo CAN'T sustain viability. 

So what it boils down to is this: Stop making this anyone else's business except that of the patient and the doctor and keep your frigging nose out of other people's business and stop whining about funding LEGAL medical services! It is NONE of YOUR business what others do with their medical decisions. Who the frick died and made YOU God?
