Joe Biden's F-Bomb - Joe Almost Got it Right!
Warning: First off to my friends who may be offended by course language, please do not read this Hub. The language used may offend some but I promise it is no more offensive than the effects of what this word was used to describe. So if you can take it...read on.
Yes you read it right. Joe Biden almost got something correct. You heard it here first.
In case you missed it, Joe Biden dropped another F-Bomb on a live mike. I know, the easy thing to do is just say, 'Well Joe did it again' . This time he did it at the signing of the Health Care Reform Bill. In true Joe form, (not vice presidential form) he just let it roll out. Funny thing is nobody blinked. Nobody really cared. The president just smiled. That is just Joe being Joe.
On one hand, the truth is, this is just Joe being Joe and it is a testimony to the sad state of affairs here in the US. He really is a joke but the punchline isn't that funny because he has power. Here's the video if you haven't already seen it.
So How Can this Joke of a VP be Almost Right?
Now I have to admit here that Joe is 5/6 right. What do I mean? If you didn't hear what he said, it was, 'This is a big f-ing deal.' Well I believe Joe was mostly right...at least the first 5 words were right; This is a big F-ing...of the American tax payer, of democracy, of the elderly, of capitalism, of freedom, of the Constitution and more.
As for the deal part, well we are just now finding out about more deals than we know what to do with. Aside from the kick backs and bribes like the $100M Connecticut hospital deal and the Louisiana purchase where Louisiana gets $300M in extra medicaid funding, we just found out it exempts congressional staffers. How convenient. More will come I'm sure.
On the private sector side, AT&T announced it would cost them $1B. Think that is going to come from profits! HA! No that is going to come from reduced benefits to employees and higher prices for you and me. AT&T is not the only ones. They are just the first.
So yes Joe, this is a big F-ing... and I guess now we're supposed to just take it. I have news for you....what goes around comes around. Your time will come and I pray it is this November at the ballot box.
