Unbelievable! I Am At A Loss For Words!

This hub is not an example of my work.

It is, constantly, the highest rated.

On February 8, 2010 this hub is rated # 1 of my hubs and has a score of 97.

In my eyes it shouldn't be rated as high or have a score of 97.

I have poems. I have written about history.

I have made tributes to great people.

This is not an example of my best contributions.

I traveled to a hub to be friendly and find what a hubber was about. It was about socialism vs capitalism. It was about health-care. There was a lengthy discussion. 220 posts or so. More often it seemed that the post could have been pamphlets or small books. Not only do I think most were fruitless but I also think pointless and not worthy of counting to make sure my number of 220 is absolutely exact.

Yes- in order to "smell some roses" and get on with other responsibilities of life I needed to get what I could with my "limited" time.

I scanned and found the coup de gras- the blow of mercy (?) that took me out.

The original author of the hub made this statement among countless:

"I personally always try to get the best healthcare available around whenever I have a need in it, even if it costs more."

and this jewel, as I've said, "among countless":

"Others might opt out for the cheapest one, that is their problem not mine."

Micky Dee's reply was:

You say, "Others might opt out for the cheapest one, that is their problem not mine." You lost me right there. I can't read all of this as I want to have a life. I don't like forums because it's political warfare with opinions and quite often they result in this. "their problem not mine"- I will be my brother's keeper. Jesus was very into socialized medicine. There are certainly no teachers here that surpass Jesus. If you think I'm an evangelist please tell my friends who are Christians. They won't believe you. I do believe in some great teachings that were around before Jesus. Jesus di(did) provide the same health coverage to everybody and he gave it away. You lost me. But I walk the road alone anyway.

My comment was followed by this response:

Micky, not sure I understand you. If you got a life and moved on so be it, but if not yet - could you please explain yourself in a plain English so I can understand? Thank you :)

So Micky Dee commented on his response:

You said, "Others might opt out for the cheapest one, that is their problem not mine."

You wish for me to speak in plain English?

"If you got a life and moved on so be it, but if not yet..."

I suppose we do speak in different languages or with different understandings.

Mine is a very simple language and very easy to understand-

"their problem not mine" is a statement of selfishness!

It's not a way of life I can comprehend.

I understand your words perfectly. You should be able to understand mine. But largely your comments are to engage in fruitless dialogue to boost your status as a worldly intellectual. Congrats- you've done that. I suppose you win. What you've won is certainly of no value.

Plain English?

You say, "I personally always try to get the best healthcare available around whenever I have a need in it, even if it costs more."

You also say, "Others might opt out for the cheapest one, that is their problem not mine."

This is my last response. It's futile to converse with the "totally convinced", especially when they cannot identify with the suffering of others.

Money decides who lives and who dies or who suffers. Just like our legal system. Often -the highest priced lawyer wins.

It's your hub, it's your thang, do what you want to do. I'd rather talk to a sign post.

Now I will speak in this present time (which of course now isn't).

Are you out of your mind?

Why would you dare admit to your outright selfishness?

Of course politicians think the same way you do.

Most are not so utterly calloused to admit it.

Most doctors feel this way. They won't admit it or not often or not loud enough often enough. I've heard "medicare jokes" from actual "doctors".

You would sentence people to suffer more than you because you have money.

You would sentence innocent people to suffer because of their financial limitations.

Yes, I am at a loss for words. Perhaps I'll find some later and shore up this hub about the selfishness of a man who has it all.

Let me profess to be an idiot, but one who would rather be illiterate for righteousness than an intellectual for intellectuals and yes- evil. For if one is not his brother's keeper, he may just as well kill. Your results can be the same.

Yes, I am at a loss for words and my words are not as eloquently penned as you and your henchmen. Yes, my fingers fly on these keys with anger.

But I will not bow to indifference and the self-centered-ness that permeates this "what are you doing for me now" world that is one of only what one can physically feel and touch.

Yes, I am at a loss for words and yes I am temporarily "urinated off"!

"My Socialism Beats Your Capitalism! Or Does It?" Indeed!

I will not be warm and fuzzy with the United States of Apathy!

Whether you like it or not there is a God, there is karma, there will be a day of reckoning when your apathy will be taken into consideration!


Response from Micky Dee's last comment

Mickey, why are you so angry? Did I step on one of your irrational beliefs without knowing it? Sorry about it, but I can't be hold responsible for your own delusions, you have to work on them yourself my friend. :)

Thanks for clarifying what exactly you were referring to, I was having a hard time trying to find this phrase inside the hub. As you know quite well it was a part of comment, directed at another person, and you completely took it out of context and misinterpreted it, congratulations :D

As for you having a life and not willing to read my hub because of this - those were your words, not mine :P

Micky Dee rebuts here only.


This is no different from the Bully Blogging Bullies.

The hubber tries to anger me with insults- "Did I step on one of your irrational beliefs" and I can't be hold responsible for your own delusions". The hubber then says"you completely took it out of context and misinterpreted it".

The hubber says, "I personally always try to get the best healthcare available around whenever I have a need in it, even if it costs more."

Followed by, "Others might opt out for the cheapest one, that is their problem not mine."

How have I misinterpreted?

The hubber tries to further his antagonizing with: "congratulations :D" a little tongue sticking out at the end.

The hubber ends it with "As for you having a life and not willing to read my hub because of this - those were your words, not mine :P"

And I certainly don't know what the heck this is about except for the tongue sticking out at the end. I certainly will not waste anymore time with this.

There were hundreds of comments that merely made his hub popular.

I suppose this is/was his main goal.

When I read pages like this- I see people who do not create, who would never defend the country he lives in and who would certainly be willing to attack anyone to be popular.

I see people who thrive on intimidation and may not believe a word they say.

Perhaps they really don't believe in much at all.

Having given it some thought- I now see a person down on his knees praying to something and begging for forgiveness. He may try to seem like he is in control. He knows he is not. Especially when he is alone- he will be summoned by his master. He needs to hope and pray that his master is benevolent!

We all serve somebody.

The good, the charitable, the pure in heart have no worries.

Antagonize sir? You have a crude awakening!

There's a train coming!

I'm at peace with what I have done. I've merely responded to something aggravating such as a self centered child who has learned how to create computer viruses of mass construction. There is no stopping the child. You can only let him grow up and see the fate that will be his.

Perhaps he needs a "time out".

I won't be back to his hub.

Thank you for writing this, it makes me fell less alone in trying to understand the way people see and react to the same picture presented to them.

This hub goes to show once again how people can look at the same sunset and see pictures that don’t even come close. I wrote a few days ago about choosing the slice of truth we like best and ignoring the rest of the pizza.

In the end, I believe we as people can’t rise above our own limitation and it is hard to communicate in any language of the mind, heart and soul.

I have lived all my life in the UK with it's universal National Health Service for every UK citizen, no matter if they have a million pounds in their bank account or not a penny in their pocket they will be treated the same. It seems an alien concept to me that if you did not have enough money at that current point in life, you would be denied treatment.

The way I see it, if I live a full and healthy life and contributed more towards the NHS than consumed during that lifetime then great as I would of helped out my fellow man. It is what it means to be part of society.

For example, what a loss to the world if UK scientist stephen hawkin didn't have access to the nhs earlier on in his career before coming up with his ground break theories.

As the saying goes “there but for the grace of God go I”

Hi, Mickey, yep I know where your coming from. Don't you just love people like that?! I sometimes go to the forums and have a look, and sometimes my fingers are about an inch away, and the rant is forming, but then I stop and think, can't be bothered, let them hang themselves higher and higher, because in the end they lose. But sometimes grrrr.....cheers nell

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Thanks Nell. You're right. We can't be bothered. I guess it's okay to meet some of these people occasionally to appreciate real people and maybe rant just once, maybe twice. I've been to two of these bar-be-cues. Haven't been impressed by the children yet. I guess this was just to get visitors to his hub. It's not about creating. I digress. There's a train coming! Thank you very much for stopping by.

Mick, just like Nell, I'll sit back one second away from cutting loose like a 60 out of the side door of a Huey and then I hear this voice. "It ain't worth it. They're building their own gallows." So, I flip over to something else. I despise the forums. It's like nursery school. I tried it once or twice. Buy 'em a pail and shovel and who cares after that? 90% of the time their debating faith which in itself is wasted effort and dumb. You and I fought so that supposedly, the people in this country could worship or not the way they please and yet we have these computer cowboys and cowgirls in there running people into the ground like spoiled little kids.

Micky Dee-

How refreshing to read this.I think the rule is 'Don't step out of line and diss my hub,because my friends the vulchers are standing by ready to back me up-even if I do speak rubbish'-Intelligent fraternal discussion seems to be a rarity on hubs or forums.


Greensnob 6 years ago

MD - WOW! Again! Thank you for taking a stand. I did not read the hub in question, but am tired of the one dimensional, 'party of hard asses and loose lips' who have driven drivvle about how the rest of us who do not HAVE, can eat cake. Your words are falling on their deaf ears. When a mind is closed, so is its your ears. And yes, this is how the rest of the world views Americans, as souless and greedy.

Thanks Itakins. It really means a lot to see the "sound" minds voice the voice of reason. And you know- they really don't have "real friends". At the first sight of trouble they will scurry like the bottom feeding rats they are. They have no true friends. They have no compassion. They have no truth. It isn't feasible. It isn't possible.

Thank you Greensnob. This hubber has 18 hubs. This hubber has 1990 followers. I won't be reading what makes 18 hubs this magical. There is some type of magic, tricks, or fraud for this drivel to attract 1990 people. Perhaps arguing attracts. Perhaps drivel attracts. Perhaps like-minded self-centeredness attracts. Perhaps bottom feeders attract each other. I have no desire for one of the 1990 crazies here. This hubber is still following me. 1990 people need to get right or get left.

Thanks Funride. Maybe what these people like is to raise another's blood pressure. They can't, won't, and don't do positive things to make the world a better place. You're right- there is no communicating with the "its" that masquerading as people out there. But once in a while I need to go on record as having called the "parasites" as I see them. Occasionally I think we need to say, "whoa this really stinks." I'm settling back onto my usual "urinated off mood". Things are better after a bike ride! Thank you sir.

Mickydee...my favorite 'ranter' on truths...;) I love your victory on this one!

These type of people are everywhere aren't they? They are about themselves-care only for themselves-they live ONLY in this world and are blinded by their lack of interest in any other human beings suffering BUT care only for themselves. One day--the rich and the poor will become equal--the pain is acoming and guess what?It won't mean a ratz azz what they drove-their medical healthcare package,what big home they owned-their expensive shoes and suits that they wear--they will be just as 'us' in this world...but spiritually there will be nothing but emptyness-terror-loss-weakness-helplessness for these types who do not care for one's brother but for the almighty wallet. So who is the bigger loser by continuing on with braggery,no compassion, no cares for anyone but themselves?

I thought I saw you zooooooom by me on your bike yesterday-you were riding 180 mph and my hair blew into my eyes by your great speed. Pushing my hair to the side, I thought I saw both of your hands off the bars--having two uncontrollable 'tics'high up in the air over your head--and then I realized that you were not having no dang tics-- you were making the VICTORY sign for God! :) hehehe I luv ya !

You Ghostwhisperer you! It's funny- if we do the right things, we are not doing them for praise or applause. We do things because it is right to do them. That's the difference between "us and them".

I'll just keep the thoughts that were sent - on this page.

Hey Mickey, entwinning with selfishness can really make your head spin! Am quite shocked at the backlash this health care issue has created in America - but when times are hard the family has to come together. Surely a little bit of socialism can see you through the hard times, like Roosevelt with his New Deal in the 30's. Capitalism is fun and energetic and motivating but it needs policing cos the dark side is pure selfishness and greed. Keep on peddling dude!

MickeyD, what an awesome hub! The entire article and comments all give me such a sense of rejuvination! I am not alone in feeling this repulsion for those who want to hold onto what they have at the exclusion of everyone else! Your hub makes me laugh and cry, actually. It is completely poignant. I had one such person who is living the good life tell me he was standing up for American Values of hard work and earning what you deserve, as if he as a pilot didn't build himself up on the shoulders of minimum wage factory workers who put together his airplanes. No one acts alone! I read all these responses and feel heartened. What are American values anyway? "Me,me,me?!"

You echo my thoughts. the "rich" act is they built their house of millions of dollars when it was plumbers, rock masons, brick masons, carpenters, and countless others who were on the ladder that they stood on the shoulders of to start with. Where would they be without all the others "below" them. Most "rise" to their "top" because of cunning and not even intelligence, but perhaps with indifference to those who made them possible. I don't see anyone worth millions of dollars without compassion for others. Thank you. I love your words.

2uesday 6 years ago from - on the web, I am 2uesday.

Hi Micky you always leave me such nice comments on my hubs but I am not always so good with comments - not sure what to say on this. I did not see what started it; I know just try to keep away from the angry, selfish or self opinionated people in the world because they drain your energy.

I can say that the national health service that we have here in the UK gets a bad press sometimes but this is because people like to put negative things in newspapers. if anything our N.H.S. is a victim of its own success the more medicine advances the more it costs to run. I can tell you that I think free health care here saves lives and suffering.

I enjoy reading your hubs,you look after yourself, 2uesday.

Thank 2useday. Yep, I stepped into some funky stuff and got some on my shoes. It smelled bad and I had to point out some bad odors. But I washed those shoes, dried them, threw in a couple sheets of bounce and they're raring to go. We really do have to watch where we step. Sometimes if it smells bad enough and you want to warn others about the stink-winky.

Micky Dee, you said:

"...if we do the right things, we are not doing them for praise or applause. We do things because it is right to do them."

"...the "rich" act is they built their house of millions of dollars when it was plumbers, rock masons, brick masons, carpenters, and countless others who were on the ladder that they stood on the shoulders of to start with. Where would they be without all the others "below" them. Most "rise" to their "top" because of cunning and not even intelligence, but perhaps with indifference to those who made them possible."

In reading these comments I thought to myself, how ironic, this is EXACTLY what the racially depressed have been saying and trying to make understood for years! It is ALWAYS right to demand respect, seek and speak truth, and expect justness. Then again, that’s a whole other topic...lol.

Micky Dee, it is not that these blind cannot see, more is it that they choose not to for fear of the horror apparent when they look in the mirror. It is not that these dumb cannot speak the truth; rather it is that if they do they will be forced to acknowledge their own yawning ignorance. It is not that these deaf cannot hear their enforced pain. No, it is that in the tormented howl of the many they can hide their own deviant fear; that they know not LOVE.

In my knowing love, I merely smile at these foolish and let them be. It is not for me to be their judge. My role is to forgive the blind, dumb and deaf when we meet and pass on the perfect truth of LOVE.

Misha- I didn't identify you. You did. I twisted nothing. I copied and then I pasted. I may keep this comment above for a while for being able to say I "tried" to give you a rebuttal. So far you are failing miserably at that rebuttal.

By the next statement you are now lying:

"Nice try Micky, you definitely have a way with twisting words. :)"

I have "stuff" to do. I will not make my hub a blog for bullies and the thoroughly convinced who will even stoop to belittle my spiritual beliefs. Let's just say you've also "stepped on irrational beliefs."

Your words are right here and over there for all to see. I left your grammatical errors in- whatever they may have been.

"I personally always try to get the best healthcare available around whenever I have a need in it, even if it costs more."

"Others might opt out for the cheapest one, that is their problem not mine."

"Mickey, why are you so angry? Did I step on one of your irrational beliefs without knowing it? Sorry about it, but I can't be hold responsible for your own delusions, you have to work on them yourself my friend. :)"

Now take your little tongue back over to your place: ":P"

Now if you have some hostility that you'd like to work out please tell me what arena that would be in. It won't be on your hub with your fruitless henchmen.

Your last sentence mirrors your blatant dishonesty. You insult me and leave your "smiley face"-":)".

I want to live in a utopia. There is a book of that name by Thomas More. It's fantasy but I must believe in the fantasy of a utopia. Utopia is "an ideal place or state". It is "any visionary system of political or social perfection". We are told to pray the "Lord's Prayer". This prayer asks that (God's) "Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven". In order for me to believe in "this" or any other "utopia" I would forgive if the person involved wanted to change the wrong that was done. If there is no determination to change bad habits or stop doing wrong. We can walk away, let the future take care of itself by laws or God. We can try to shove the wrongs aside but I'm not sure what the point would be in acting toward forgiving. I will certainly try to be a "shock absorber" though.

Facts are instituted telling us there will be continued disagreements. There will be wars and rumors of war.

Yet I am told by the greatest teacher to pray "like" the Lord's Prayer".

Fact- Jesus gave His Health care away. Jesus was humane in doing this.

All the facts in the world can be argued about.

The arguing needs to stop with insults.

The arguing needs to stop about HEALTH-CARE.

These two basics are where I have made a stand on this hub.

All the political, social, and economic posturing in the world will not budge me from my position of:

NO INSULTS!

HEATH-CARE FOR EVERYONE!

LOVE YOUR SISTER AND BROTHER AS YOURSELF!

This hub is short, to the point, and is not a forum for wasted arguments.

You might think this is just weird but...I think I was lead to this hub on purpose. I was bullied on my own hub by a commenter last week. It disturbed me some so I went to the forum to see what others thought. Then there were more bullies who posted some not so nice things there. I haven't been a big user of the forums and that just made me all the firmer believer that they are not for me. I deleted the comments from the bully.

I totally agree with all the statements you gave. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this. I as a healthcare worker believe everyone deserves high quality health care. If I were to get seriously sick I would become seriously poor just like any middle class joe. No one deserves to go broke or die because they cannot afford healthcare.

Sincerely, Tammy


Micky Dee profile image

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Thank you Tammy. This is a fantastic comment. You make me feel that, indeed, this was needed. This hub isn't just a rant. This is a rant in defense of those who are attacked for being nice. I went to that hub because I was "fanned or followed" by this person. I wanted to see what his hubs were about before "following" myself. I made the effort. This "intellectual" like so many others play by strange rules. If he did not agree with my beliefs- why would he "follow me"? Is this a way to manipulate the numbers? Of course for the number crunchers that's what "it's all about". He's written 18 hubs when I wrote this. He has almost 7,000 followers. This is the contribution? I work my butt off. I have 64 hubs and with you being my 100th, I now have 100 "followers". My hub "rates" and my overall "rate" fluctuates like the weather. Nothing changes. I may go back and correct my grammatical errors. I work hard. I put up another hub and while I work the rate falls. I put up my own pictures. I search the web. I read books. My scores fluctuate.Either the piece I wrote was that good or it wasn't. It should not fluctuate by the dollars I bring into HUBPAGES. Whoever is running this sometimes great/sometimes freak show doesn't care about my making money or a fair playing field. A computer settles it all? Their computer must be Hal of the Space Odyssey movie.

On another hub I've written I list 21 religions that have a form of the "Golden Rule". These people belong to none of those? Do they worship evil, Satan, the dollar? I have friends that are atheists. These friends practice the Golden Rule.

Sorry- I got carried away. This should be another hub. Thank you for stopping by and you have lifted me.

We are people. We are kin. We have value. We belong. These folks on that hub spent a lot of time arguing about selfishness when it's plain they could at least agree to health-care for all. Thanks again and pardon me while I say:

UNBELIEVABLE!

Thank you for the answer Micky. I am glad that I did something to help you in some way. Your hub confirms all the things that I have been thinking too. I get my followers honestly. I too work hard and my scores stay mainly low. My google adsense account was disabled too. So I am really doing this for no other reason other than to learn and get better at writing. You are very passionate.

Take care, Tammy

Thanks for stopping back by. I think the old saying is especially true on hubpages: No good deed goes unpunished! You're doing great work. It should be rewarded. I guess we should travel the wide world of hubpages and befriend everything we don't care for- not. There will be a day when the scores will even out. Thanks Tammy.

I think it has all been said! What a fantastic rant. You speak so eloquently and I could almost visualise your fingers flying over the keyboard as you wrote it. I will now go and read some more of your hubs and see if you always write so passionately or if it depends on the subject!

I have been to those forums where it seems people wait in the shadows for their prey. I recently read a very honest comment from a person wanting help. The vultures came from everywhere with name calling and insults. This poor man was definitly attacked. Everyone has a right to their opinions and I think the diversity can stretch us and grow us if we are open. Why get so nasty if we disagree or have no experience in the realm of our brother or sisters world. People deserve to be treated with respect ... it's one of those things that good parent's teach their children. You are right to shine a light on this topic. I commend you for your stand Micky Dee

Thank you Mekenzie. It really makes me feel justified in doing this. If those jackals were all that were here I would be gone. They accomplish nothing but turmoil. I guess their hell is now and the future. I was visited by "Satan's" little helper on another hub today. He said something about my honesty. Something "was more honest than" I am. I have no idea what he's referring to. I guess "we" try to be honest. We do think a lot of honesty. Evil tries to attack where it thinks you're weak or where they think you are sensitive. At first it bothered me because I do want to be honest. I feel carnal desires. I admit that. I also will admit that I am a frog. I love women. I am not the prince even if kissed. I have issues and problems that I haven't worked out yet. But I'm drawing a line in the sand for God. That's the difference. I do want to be good and I am indeed against evils tormenting the indefensible. I wish TeamHubpages would do the same. There isn't an ideal world here or on the streets. But I don't have people coming in my house throwing the furniture around. Thank you very much. Look out for the lurkers!

Hello Mickydee! I am nosing around your hub..Hi Mekenzie!!! Mickydee is somebody really special to me..my Mickydee...I am his number one stalker gurly :) And I am shocked that this is continuing! I also see my Tammy gurly here...she is awesome. I seen the same "darkness" show up on a very nice thank you hub to Tammy and call her names.

So if it is any consolation to you Mickydee.. darkness likes to cause turmoil-hatred to those who speak the truth-or even speak lovely words about another...poor sad dear spreading hate around and doesn't even realize how 'dark' they are.

the darkness is..it is showing itself...was I wrong Micky?

Give it no power and rebuke! Nothing wrong with rebuking darkness-I do when I see it jump off the pages-and I go not where the Angels are not. Stay in the light babydoll!

God protects--and God reveals who is darkness-rebuke!rebuke! In the name of Jesus get out of my face--they run--they hide--they will come back...I love that! *it is from Unchained Grace! hehehe

Light attracts Light..look at all the people I just love her on your hub!!! Rock on!!!!!

I miss you Micky! (((((((HUG))))))))

Snippets From The Rape Of Truth-

( Live at town hell meetings everywhere)

By MFB III

The following hub is a wee bit harsh but it comes no where near the slander and cruelty of the current talk show puppets and their lobbyists masters.

They lost, Their party is out, they need to get over it and offer some constructive critiques, get involved in the programs, rather then endlessly trying to destroy everything that the president is trying to institute. He has worked harder in 9 months, then Bush did in eight years. I defy anyone to make me a list of good things that Bush did in office, besides helping Africans with aids....although that was a noble effort. So if this offends, I am sorry, but it is meant in the spirit of educating those who have been manipulated by lobbyists and their radio mouthpieces. The lobbyists are our actual enemies, not Obama, or any other politician, we need to demand the removal of all lobbyist...today!

Enjoy....

Snippets From The Rape Of Truth-

Live At Town Hells Everywhere.

They stand with angst filled faces

screaming out the jism of a handful of

radio-activist, talking sore heads for lobbyists,

plus all the blathering foul mouthed pieces

of the Republi-can't party stirring up

the uneducated rabble rousers and the

paid stooges of big business interests.

These puppets parrot the twisted

rhetoric of "isms", socialism, communism,

totalitarianism, without offering any

real wisdom to explain how it applies to what they

call the Obama-nation forced upon them.

They ignore the facts that Medicare

and National Education were not

socialistic, or communistic,

and that Great Britain and many other

countries with National Health Care

are democratic nations simply fixing

a serious problem amidst their masses.

They spout Hitler and Obama

in the same breath, as if soon their

precious grandparents will be lined up

and gassed when they are no longer needed.

They seek to perpetuate George Dumbya's

government of fear, shaking their fingers

with agitated terror wrists at those

who seek to heal a nation, for the people,'

by the people, and of the people.

They whine about the cost of taking care

of the needy and their children,

after their own commander-in-grief

failed to institute any health care plan

for over eight years and chose instead

to throw away billions of dollars,

on Haliburton, blackwater and

two useless, un-won wars.

They are mostly composed of hired

deceivers working in the interests

of a major lobbyists, for example

America's Health Insurance Plans,

who sent out over 50,000 employees

to disrupt town halls in over thirty states.

They simply want to keep the status quo

of gouging the less fortunate,

and maintaining the gluttony of their profits

thereby granting them great gain

and denying FAIR AND BALANCED

coverage to all Americans.

Add to that the fact that Obama's

health care reform does not

even go into effect until 2013

which gives him four years to perfect it,

So why are they out screaming now??

That answer of course is easy,

it's called mid-term elections,

and the minority of disgruntled

repuglican's simply want to run roadblocks

in front of whatever Obama does

all the way to the ballot boxes.

They hold tea parties,

with their all white labels

hoisted high in the air,

as wrinkled old bags

and strung out conservatives,

take a long deserved drenching

in the last place cups of sore losers.

They bristle at being called racists,

while boasting of their

sympathy for Black Americans,

but their sign language reads otherwise

nailed on crosses of wood

and paper spewing venomous hate.

Congressman Joe Wilson

let his true colors show

when he pointed a finger of slander

at President Obama, but never pointed out

the fact that he is a fool fledged

member of the Sons Of the Confederacy,

and also sought to keep the rebel flag

flying high and proud over his

districts in South Carolina.

He also recanted his apology.

Just some little known

background to peruse.

And what about the Mexicans

who landscape America,

pick these peoples produce,

care for their elderly,

and work on all the

minimum dirt wage jobs

so that the capitalist

can save a buck.

The wealthy enjoy the benefits

of paying little to nothing

for illegal immigrants labors but

God forbid that one of these

non-citizens working here daily

by the thousands

should become gravely ill,

leaving them no longer of any use

to those who use them.

All of those pious

who are dissenting now

and demanding that such folks get

no free care if needed,

no illegal immigrants

should be cared for.

isn't that discrimination?

Is that not a form

of death paneling?

Is that not racist?

What is Christian

in anyway !!

about this attitude

of screw them all?

Such whiners no longer have

any power in Washington,

so they stomp around

in exaggerated numbers

and throw tantrums much

like toddlers denied their way,

a way that over eight years

got us into this mess.

They do not investigate,

they simply instigate

with faces of contempt

spewing out falsifications

in hopes to sabotage the

current leader of the

country they claim to love.

They will soon be aborted,

by the sharp sword of truth,

leaving their party in shambles

when their actions and claims

prove that they were simply

snippets from the rape of truth.

Sucked in daily by the radio tubes,

and made patsies like Dick Cheney's

infamous puppet "Dumbya"

while this country will go on just fine

without them, and their lame input.

So sit back and watch the clowns,

made up to look patriotic,

with Emmet Kelly expressions

that barely hide the racism,

as they run around

miming the tomfoolery

of the Rush Limbaugh freak show,

dancing on marionette strings

doing the Bill O'Rielly foxtrot.

Or get active, reactive, proactive,

man the phones and make some calls,

Speak out, speak up, speak intelligently.

Put some hush on the

bloated rhetoric of Rush....

let your sharp minds

ravage Michael Savage,

Phone in an endless stream of

phone lights flashing with

triple-decker hecklers

and make a wreck of Glen Beck.

Let's get wily With O'Reilly,

and put some true sanity

into the rantings of Hannity.

Let's drown out the dirges of Medved,

until he's an un-grateful deadhead.

It's time to give them

a strong dose of their own medicine.

then we will begin to see just

how many hangups these guys truly have.

Call those Congressmen and Senators

and Representatives that you did not

vote for and let them know that they

had better get behind the president

before they fall far behind in the polls.

Before they wind up as useless chads

hanging around uncounted by the masses.

It's way past time for some Glee parties,

to counteract the tea parties, we "won" folks,

we hold the majority, and it cannot be silent.

start calling today, and soon enough

you will institute change and bring about true hope.

Mainly because....

The circus is in town,

open daily at our town halls,

but they are simply spreading

a long trail of elephant dung,

that will soon mark their brief passing.

I don't think I can argue against what you've said. The strategy for all conservatives right now is to under-mind anything that Obama does. George Bush is a "CRIMINAL" but so are most who hold office.

Until we rectify our "injustice system" the United States of America will continue to be the "most charming dictatorship in the world".

I'm very glad that Obama is president and giving us a different color in the White House. However- Mr. Obama will do nothing to make a change I will care about in my lifetime.

I'm certainly glad the crazy cowboy from Kennebunkport is out of there but I haven't liked anybody in there.

There are positive changes that more obvious than a slap in the face that Americans don't get.

This is a very lovely, charming, cute DICTATORSHIP!

Too many in this society are bullys and wonder why their children are mirroring the same behavior in our schoolyards.

They know not what democracy and freedom is truly about. We have the right to our opinions, we have the right to vote how we want and for what benefits our personal lives, we have the right to disagree.

Those against the healthcare bill, have never needed it. Those in congress that voted against the healthcare bill were working for their polictical contributors and not for their constituents. Just google and you'll find most were backed by medical, insurance and pharmacutical corporations.

The major insuance companies raked in billions at the beginning of the year, yet raised premiums on "Joe Citizen", and what of the unemployed? Physicians have long since left the "caring" aspect of their profession it's all about the benjamins, in the words of comedian Chris Rock; they'll never be a cure for Aids or Cancer, THERE'S NO MONEY IN THE CURE!!!

So those "sheep" that want to continue the status quo, do so. Let doctors continue to "practice" on you, miss diagnois and addict you to prescription drugs. It's your life your choice . . but let me have a choice!


Micky Dee profile image

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Absolutely Pmccray. I agree with Chris Rock. Unfortunately Americans like to be fooled. They like the dark. Americans are "into" a oil and debt driven society. They speak of hard work and yet they can't dig inside and into our government for the truth. I have no idea if this health-care is worth a flip. What we have had is a lie.

It's a country where most are Christian and it seems that Christians are against the Jesus they pray to.

If this new health-care doesn't work it's because the selfish don't want it too. The biggest group of the selfish of course right-wingers who have their health-care. Of course these have their share of "poor" who follow for the jobs they are occupying.

It's frustrating.

We need doctors. We need each other. I don't need a doctor with different houses and condos and all the other hoopla. We need real people. Thank you Dear. I'm not replying very well. I couldn't sleep, got up, and now at 5 AM I'm falling asleep. Thanks Pmccray!

Hi Shadesbreath! I don't care for folks who do not practice the Golden Rule. It matters not that they are atheists are Christian or you take your pick. I have no tolerance for belittling. The first hub I created was about stepping into the forum and stepping into some doggy doo. There have been a few hubbers, and I don't want to meet "their like minds", that just write to antagonize. I have no time for these. I would leave this writing venue period if I were to have to converse with these folks. I am not a democrat or republican and "that" system does not work. Too many resources are wasted on our broken down two party system that is "owned" by the real powers. Bottom line- the Golden Rule is the biggest rule we have. Unless people take it up - I'm definitely a ship passing in the night! Thank you for commenting!

Micky, you have a huge heart, and I know exactly where you are coming from. When I read stuff like that I feel a tide of indignation and anger rising in me that has often turned into a flood. I left hubpages for quite a while and one of the reasons was the anger I had felt at some of the people posting here. I had my own arguments in the forum that drained me and left me wondering if the world had lost it or if I had. I won't go into the whole story but suffice to say I am back and will post soon and I'm feeling much more positive.

One thing that really helped was a book I bought recently by the Buddhist monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh called 'The Art of Power'. The power he talks of has nothing to do with the type of power associated with money, fame, wealth, or sex but the power to bring happiness and peace to yourself and others.

One of the routes to that power is how we deal with anger and other painful emotions. His advice for us is to recognize our anger and smile on it, show it love and acknowledge it as part of ourselves until the two of us, we and your anger become a calm, focussed and peaceful unity. Then the right response will surely follow.

One of the hardest things to deal with for those who care is to be confronted with the brazen disregard of those who don't. But those who don't are damaged in a way that those who do, I think, could benefit from recognizing. I've gone through periods when all the care in me just flowed out and I was left a shell of cynicism. I may at that time thought or done things that now would make me as angry at myself as you were at that hubber. But I was lost and I need to have compassion for myself in those moments. because if you don't care, you can't love and if you can't love you can't be happy.

The conclusion of this ramble is simply this, I'll repeat, Micky, you have a huge heart and this hub glows with your passion. Let's all get together though and try to have the strength to understand the cynical, the apathetic and the avaricious and help them to get somewhere better. I don't know exactly how that can be done but my own experience has convinced me that the best of humanity, people like Jesus, the Buddha and Thich Nhat Hanh are pointing in the right direction.

Peace and Love,

Paul
