It has been almost 2 months since my ectopic pregnancy.  The pain is finally gone from the surgery.
my heart hurts
tears flow hot down my cheeks 
emotions are raw
I blame myself and think of "what if's" 
my body yearns for what is gone
I miss my baby

A brief history of the human race

For those that don't know history, here is a condensed version.

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals; and
2. Conservatives

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. Those became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history.

It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.

A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.

And there you have it.

The Yellow Prison Bus and the Future of American Healthcare

Conservatives are up-in-arms over the Democratic healthcare scheme.  From town hall meetings, to talk radio, to the internet, the voice of the people is being heard.  However, I am not at all convinced that the voice of the people will ultimately make a difference in the long run.  My pessimism has less to do with the sinister motives of those seeking to take over the healthcare system.  On the contrary, my pessimism stems from the hypocrisy of those shouting down their representatives and claiming to be “fed up”.  

While I’m sure these folks mean well, I wonder about the sincerity of their opposition in light of the fact that the overwhelming majority of them (between eighty and eighty-five percent) have already accepted everything they claim to abhor about the healthcare plan.  Some have already exposed this irony as it relates to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security (full disclosure:  I’ve opted out of Social Security and am proud to say that I am not anticipating one thin dime from the American government in my old age).  However, I’m not talking about these long existing socialist programs, I’m talking about the #1 socialist welfare program in America, the public school system! 

There are striking similarities between government-run education and the government-run healthcare bill currently under consideration in Congress.  And it is precisely these similarities that will eventually cause the American people to lay down and take whatever the government gives them, and eventually be willing to fight and die for them.  Remember, there was public outrage over government education (and Social Security) as well when it was first proposed (see the quotes here).  However, nearly one hundred and fifty years later the overwhelming majority of Americans gladly put their children on the yellow prison bus every day (yes, they are the same type of busses used to transport prisoners).


One of the mantras we hear repeatedly these days is, “we don’t want socialism.”  While that sounds good (and conservative, and constitutional, and patriotic, etc.), it rings hollow when you consider the overwhelming majority of the people leading the charge have their children in what amounts to socialized education.  What’s the difference?  If you’re really against government-run, socialized programs, yank your kid off the yellow prison bus and just say no.


Another catchphrase I’ve heard a lot lately is, “this is a violation of the Tenth Amendment.”  Again, this is wonderful rhetoric.  I love the Constitution of the United States; especially the Tenth Amendment which protects the rights of States and individuals from overreaches by the Federal Government.  The amendment reads:  “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  Ironically, one of the “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States” is education!  That’s right, the Federal Government has absolutely no Constitutional right to involve itself in education.  The Department of Education is as unconstitutional as government-run healthcare.  However, few of the people shouting at these town hall meetings (or reporting on it on conservative talk radio and the internet) would stand up and call for the immediate abolishment of the D.O.E. (or any of the other federal departments that exist in clear violation of the tenth amendment).


Perhaps the most ironic aspect of the current uproar is the fact that people who put their children on the yellow prison bus and send them to the school designated by the State (at an age chosen by the State, on a date determined by the State, for a term mandated by the State) have the audacity to point their fingers and say, “I don’t want the government picking my doctor!”  This is absolute folly.  If we were serious about the moral and constitutional authority of this claim there would not be a single congressman or senator in Washington who opposed school choice as none of them would be able to win an election.  However, Americans are glad to elect officials who continue to rob them of their freedom in this most basic, fundamental aspect of their lives; the education of their children.


How many times have we heard someone retort, “do you want the people who run the Post Office to run your healthcare?”  The answer of course is a resounding no!  Whether you call it “the public option,” or something else, conservatives do not want the government to run their healthcare (see here).  However, how is it that we trust those same people to run our child’s education?  How is this any different?  And this is not just a liberal democrat thing; George Bush was the one who gave us “No Child Left Behind.”  This was a monument to socialistic, government-run, unconstitutional mis-education.  This was a massive overreach by the Federal Government that met little or no opposition (see one rare example here).  Where were the town hall protests?  Where were the flag-waving, gun-toting protestors?  Where was the political right?  Instead, all we heard was, “accountability is a good thing.”  Never mind the Constitution.


Then there are the people who “don’t want their money to pay for abortions or sex change operations.”  This one has president Obama on the defensive.  Conservative Christians are especially animated over this aspect of the bill.  Suddenly, the silent Christian majority is offended at the prospect of the federal government taking their money and using it for immoral purposes.  This coming from people who send their children to government schools with Gay/Straight Alliance clubs, semi-pornographic sex-ed classes, and Gramscian, neo-Marxist, neo-Darwinian curriculum.  How can we complain about our tax dollars going to fund abortions and sex change operations if we gladly offer up our children to taxpayer-funded dens of iniquity one hundred and eighty days a year?  This is the height of hypocrisy.


We will have taxpayer funded healthcare.  The Democrats have offered the full monty, now the Republicans will “dial it back” a bit and claim victory (i.e., we can come up with something just for for those people who don’t have healthcare, make sure illegal immigrants don’t have access, and save Billions, if not Trillions of dollars).  The result will be a slightly less socialistic system (for now) that the American people will accept gladly after seeing the beast in it’s full fury.  And eventually, the furor will die down and the town hall meetings a generation from now will treat socialistic government healthcare the same way we treat socialistic programs like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and government education today. 

If you want to know what type of government-run healthcare system Americans will be willing to settle for in the next generation, just walk outside tomorrow morning and watch the yellow prison busses take the next generation of Americans to the taxpayer-funded, government-run, indoctrination center to which they are assigned and ask yourself this question:  Are they learning anything today that will give them an aversion to a government takeover of healthcare?  Then ask yourself another question:  If their parents do teach them to oppose socialism, read and follow the Constitution, cherish freedom of choice, shun government intervention and hold government accountable for ethical use of their tax dollars, how long will it be before they’re standing at the corner waiting on the yellow prison bus and think to themselves, “Hey, if mom and dad really believe these things... why am I standing here?”


My goodness how things have changed
