Good to be home (warning, not really medical)

Just got back from vacation, and I can say it's good to be back in the USA. (Although my first night shift back sucked) Went south of the border. It's amazing how long it takes in customs and immigration (thank you jack hole Islamo-fascist for trying to blow up your f**king shoes) to go and come back, when it is so easy for millions just to walk right in. Missed my connecting flight and had to entertain 2 young children in an airport for 5 hours. Now that's real terror. I'm just glad no one in my family got sick or injured. Nothing against the well meaning docs there, and I speak Spanish, but I just wouldn't want to be in the hospital or clinic there. And after being there, it makes me realize how great we have it here, with the opportunities, freedom, great medical care, etc. Sure it's not perfect, but we must be doing something right for so many to desire to come here. Out of one side of their mouths they curse the "great evil" that is the U.S., but out of the other they would love to be here and enjoy what we enjoy. Most of the America bashing left wing socialist liberal jerk offs enjoy it more than most, but have swallowed the Flavor-aid given to them by the media, Harry Reid, and Sean Penn/Alec Baldwin types and simply repeat the mantra, failing to step back, take a deep breath, and realize it is just the freedom we have here that allows them to be agonizingly blind and irritating. To them, I say if you don't like it here, go to Venezuela or Cuba or some other shithole, climb up and hug a tree, and keep quiet. Because if you think verbal or physical protest would be allowed, or even what they consider benign discourse, you would soon find out to the contrary. As for me, I say God Bless the USA.



P.S. When you do leave the country, please try to stuff Michael Moore and Rosie in your carry- on. They are too fat to check, and your would have the pay the $25 dollar overweight luggage charge.

  1. I do think we as Americans have it really good here and should count our blessings.

    I honestly don't understand how anyone can not realize that. All they have to do is keep track of the news through the medium of their choice and it should be obvious.

    Really if the U.S. is so awful then why do so many people from around the world try to get here with some being willing to risk their lives?

  2. Welcome back Cat...
    I went to a college that was so freaky liberal that it made Berkley look like West Point. America-bashing, tolerance for everything (except a non-liberal point of view, of course), and belief in nothing less than a cradle-to-grave "Nanny-state" was the price of admission to this club.
    Somehow, common sense, true tolerance (even for hippies, mind you), and a basic understanding of human nature was not part of the curriculum.

    I know we are not perfect, but the US of A is by far the greatest nation on Earth - proved by the millions who, even though they "hate" us, will risk their lives to come live here. There is NO OTHER country even remotely like this.

  3. harrumph and ditto and all that crap. one quibble, the aussies have done a pretty amazing thing with the "USA of the southern hemisphere".

    i have a solution for all the problems that are inherent for us here (non-matching chromosomes, hetero, non pigmented folks). we renounce our citizenship after sneaking into mexico. then, we sneak back in as illegals. our taxes are forgiven and we get free health care. i think i'm onto something here.

  4. an interesting aside. on a trip to mexico a few years ago there was a nice gal staying at our place. she had a seizure disorder and had a seizure at dinner. the ambulance was called, and before they took her to the hospital, where she did receive appropriate treatment, they ran her credit card in the back of the ambulance. $750. they wouldn't take her otherwise. put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  11. i didn't think it was possible for you to be any cooler rad girl, but you just succeeded. tell me please, that you didn't pay your way through college working at hooters or doing exotic dance? my poor heart.

  12. I worked my way through college working at Pizza Hut, in the college computer lab, and at a preschool (yes, all 3 jobs at the same time). But, if it makes for a better story, we can pretend I worked at hooters instead. Let me know and I'll go with whatever you prefer.

  13. okay, you were the hooter's most valuable hooter for the entire time you worked there. that's our story. hope you and the family are well.

  14. Just read Neal Boortz's book The Terrible Truth About Liberals. In it he gives a mock commencment speach that is a must read. I mean it. You must read it. Now.

  15. Actually the speech can be found at boortz.com under commencement speech. It is one of the greatest diatribes on the liberal college culture I have ever read. And I read a lot. I don't just look at the pictures.
