A Day In The Life Of A Republican
Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot
full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for
minimum water quality standards.
coffee was hand picked by "Juan Valdez", certainly not in USA.
asked my 89 yr young friend about water; he said none he can remember died from bad water, only bad whiskey.
He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His
medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure
their safety and work as advertised.
to many high priced medications available. perhaps the doctors should be required to pass tougher background checks and psyc evals.
All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers
medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their
employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares
his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to
eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing
farmers did sell direct to the public via small shops, now look. health insurance is ok, as long as the insurance ceo's aren't making more than the oil execs. some overpriced "pills" are $50-100 each, with less than 30cents production costs... how much is that by the gallon? and we're (they are) talking about socialized medicine...
Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is
properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents
because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting
on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and
takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-
hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our
soap was made at home back then... along came johnson't baby shampoo. we have the worst pollution in the free world, probably from all the unnecessary trips to town while on high priced meds and using high priced gas.
He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to
work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation
fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public
transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a
ever been to atlanta and taken the scenic tour on Marta? bring your uzi.
Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay,
medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some
liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.
Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't
want his employees to call the union.
how much money did Joe make for his employer today? perhaps everyone in this country should be paid based on production... all the "other" countries pay their employees exactly what they are worth. Small business is also on commission. We produce, or starve...
If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker
compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think
he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.
what ever happened to the "family unit"? Have you ever picked up a hammer when a friend (or enemy) lost his home or out buildings to storm damage?
It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some
bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some
liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who
ruined the banking system before the depression.
this is where the death penalty should start, from the bottom UP.
Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below
market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that
Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and
earned more money over his lifetime.
did the college teach Joe how to work for Joe, or how to work for someone else? perhaps Joe was educated to believe he is better off in the "middle of the road", where he is of the best use to the gov't; ie; maximum taxpayer.
Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at
his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to
dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal
fought for car safety standards.
can't argue with that. if cars are only suppose to travel at 55-70, why are they made to speed over 120mph?
He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live
in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers
didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until
some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and
demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicans would still
be sitting in the dark)
i'm surprised that everyone wasn't required to move to town. the tax revenue alone from "rural electrification" generates billions in revenue for uncle. NOTHING is done, just to help out...
He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social
Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could
take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad
he gets back in his car for the ride home.
i'm 49. with the current (news reports) social insecurity is dying and fast. shouldn't i be able to get all i paid in when i retire (now 67 although 65 when i "signed up"). how long would you have to live to draw all of your money back? the last estimate was in excess of 100.
He turns on a radio talk show, the host keeps saying that liberals
are bad and conservatives are good (He doesn't tell Joe that his
beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit
Joe enjoys throughout his day). Joe agrees, "We don't need those big
government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I'm a self-made man
who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I
free speach. if we only read, hear, watch, and speak what we think is truth, who do we believe?
I have a question... where does the federal tax listed on all of my bill's actually go? tax, tax and more tax. who is responsible for all of these so-called pleasures? These "freebie and pork barrell" programs are taxing (USA) to death. refer to line one...
