Ramblings...

I have just been sitting here and thinking about this whole SCHIP thing and Bush's Veto.
He's talking about families that make $83,000 per year putting their kids on Federal Insurance Programs.
Does he think we are all stupid morons?
Tell me what family who earns in that bracket doesn't have private Insurance and in all likelihood either pays nothing or not much, and even if it costs alot, they could probably afford it.
Picture these people sitting in the lobby of a State Clinic - just the thought of that makes me laugh.
I have been on State Insurance (Medicaid) and let me tell you, it is no fun having to go to a Clinic for Medical Care and Treatment. The lines are long, the Doctors are too busy and the scenery is generally not pretty(!)
Come on Mr. Bush, tell me what you know about living at or below the poverty level. What do you know about being poor and unable to provide medical care for your sick child? What about being poor and having a child die because you couldn't afford the Insurance to cover the Medical Procedure that could have saved your child's life.
Bush quit your double talking bullshit and help us to care for our children.

I think I "get it". Our world has turned topsy turvey,has been heading that way for decades. President Bush is not the problem.
The problem is the dumb as rocks citizens who have never read the US Constitution (this includes all liberal politicians and many conservative ones).
No where in the annals of time has our country's government had any business whatsoever meddling in health care.
This is an issue that should be handled by private enterprise.
I read a comment somewhere on this site where "maybe the next President will help us take care of our children".
Let me share my thoughts with you.
That is not the President's job.
That is your job. If you cannot afford to have kids and fulfill their needs, what in God's name are you doing producing them?
That is irresponsibility of the highest order, bordering on child abuse as far as I am concerned. You should be ashamed to want the government make me use my hard-earned money to care for your kids! I chose to not have kids - and now you want me to pay for your roll in the hay!

Unfortunately he wont be the one to help us with this. Maybe whoever gets in next will. The reality is politics and government are man made systems that will continue to fail us in the future. My wife wrote a great article about this . Its titled God and Politics you can check it out at

Hi Romain,
I agree that politics and government are man made systems and will continue to fail us, especially since politicians talk out of both sides of their mouth. I did look at the article your wife wrote and it is articulate and well written. While I don't necessarily agree with all that it said it certainly gave me some food for thought as a Christian myself.
Peace and hugs to you and yours my friend :)

As foster/adoptive parents, our foster children come to us and are on Nebraska Medicaid. So far we have not had any problems but the kids only get one eye appointment a year and some of these kids have never had glasses before and when they get them their eyes change very quickly and they need more appointments than the state will provide for.

I know that I couldn't get the foster kids medical issues taken care of if I had to pay for them. I hope the Veto doesn't affect the children who are wards of the state.

Bush has no clue what is going on in the country. He is living in the past.
