Some Rob You With A Six-Gun; Others With A Fountain Pen
CP was down at our Congressman's office to join the protest against the state sponsored takeover of the the nation's health care industry. It was exciting to see CP on camera during the local news along with the other right wing yahoos. WLOS couldn't just report on the protest, they felt the need to put in a scripted human interest story to divert attention from the true meaning of the protest.
The Minnick's took early retirement and moved to Mexico to retire in third world luxury. Nobody goes to Mexico for the medical care unless you want a boob-job. While down in sunny Mexico two things happened. First the U.S. economy collapsed and second, drug wars broke out threatening the security of the new Yankee immigrants. These reverse wet-backs are in much better shape than others trying to survive this recession.
I was so moved by their story that I sent the TV station a dollar to pass on to the Minnick's to help with the high cost of health insurance and their dwindling 401K. Perhaps if enough people join me in this fundraiser we can get them a ticket back to Mexico. We all know Mexican health care is the best in the world. As I write this thousands of Gringo's are wading across the Rio Grande to get their MRI's and liver transplants.
