I Refuse To Be "Radicalized"!

Rant Flag Up!

Well..ok, mild rant.

I have been looking over some other homeless websites and I am seeing a fair amount of railing against the for obamacare....more money for the homeless and housing. Complaining about the rich, the banks, Bush, conservatives...yadda yadda yadda!

Well here's my deal. I am, and will continue to be, very conservative. I would tell others I am to the right of Reagan but on this side of the soil. My homelessness has more to do with the likes of Rangel, Frank, and Dodd ( I can hear The Three Stooges going.."hello, hello, hello..HELLO!") than those of a red state temperment. Frankly, the biggest reason I am seriously considering relocating to Wyoming is it's Republican bent. And to spend some time with Dick Cheney in a duck blind.

But I digress....

My current state of affairs is not going to change that. I don't want to be poor...always on assistance....having to worry about the weather because I live outside. I want to regain the kinds of opportunities I have had in the past. And the current administration is working to prevent that...more government...less capitalism....growth....opportunity. What with Cap And Tax as well as Socialized Medicine. Not progressive, but regressive things.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have been on unemployment for some time now, and I do get the $25.00 a week Obama bonus. I have had food stamps in the past. and when I have had to, I am grateful for assistance I was able to get. But I don't want that for the rest of my life. Frankly, being out on my ass is probably a good thing! Get's me motivated to finally leave New Jersey and get moving toward something new and hopeful.

Thus, don't look for me to become liberal, progressive, or an anarchist because I am addressless. I really hope to be able to accomplish something new in my life, my next carreer, or be in a place where I can use talents I have already put to use in the past.

Wish me well, if you will, as I keep good thoughts for the safety and success of all. The safety and success we get from determination and a helping hand, not a lifelong handout.

Until next time....

P.S. Y'all should be listening to Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, etc. with a VERY open mind. I have loved politics and news since VERY young, and have worked in TV news. These guys are spot on.

  1. You mention you are on assistance but support those who would take it away. Don't you see that the point is for it to be temporary? Personal responsibility is taking that helping hand to climb to independence.

    You lost your wife to cancer (condolences) and ObamaCare would prevent others in her situation from being refused healthcare for pre existing conditions - because quite frankly the business of healthcare doesn't care about the healthcare of people. Only profit. Sick people drain profits.

    Truly conservative persons would refuse any and all assistance.
    A society without assistance means a society where many people don't get the small boost they may need. That leads to conditions in countries like India.

    Anyway, I will continue to read your adventures with interest.
