This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

The reader thanking Joe Baca for his 'yes' votes on the "health care" (and student loan industry) takeover probably didn't know that her letter would appear on April 1st.

Because of the aggressive string of misrepresentations told by most (not all) Democrats, She also didn't know:

that her 3 kids and 7 grand-kids will never be free of the debt, largely because of the hidden $250 billion "Doctor fix" bill and $500 billion gutting of Medicare, which was "used" for both hidden financing of Obamacare and propping up the old, failing federal health system, as well as states carrying most of the burden after a few years;

that medical insurance rates will be - and already are - rising and jobs being cut due to new burdens on companies (check "Caterpillar" on-line), and that millions of new patients with the same number (or fewer, as many retire to avoid the mess) of doctors means slower and poorer care for those offspring;

that as the new system bankrupts itself and the country (debt jumping from the new $12 trillion to $30+ trillion), rationing will be across the board, with "less viable" (older, sicker) people getting cut off because 'it would not be efficient' (check every other socialized system, which we copied);

that there are almost no new services for 4 to 5 years, though taxes and costs of every kind start immediately and balloon after election years (gee);

that as they change jobs or their old insurance companies are crushed, they will be REQUIRED to take "government approved" policies in a shrinking market, eventually only Medicare and Medicaid;

or that "Working Joe" the "fiscally conservative, Blue Dog Democrat" is just another Progressive Socialist who knew about all of this (as well as the deals, bribes and corruption) while he promised her the opposite.

Thank God that her blood pressure is down, she sounds nice. I pray that the facts being confirmed daily do not cause her new problems...
This government isn't worried about the health of her family either, and printing her letter today is just a cruel irony.

Please be reasonably polite, but especially be as accurate as you can. Provide sources if you have them. We might as well learn something. [Wikipedia and blogs are usually 'pointers', not authoritative sources; they indicate data that might be confirmed elsewhere (that's how I use them here)].
