If You Want Frustration(edited)

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

With all the discussion and debate about the Health Care Reform bill, I decided to download the bill HR 3200 for some late night reading. My computer is relatively new. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and a 4 gigabyte RAM, with a hard drive sized for the future. I connect to the internet through a cable network.  This is clearly the fastest system I have ever owned.  I couldn’t believe what happened when I began the download of HR 3200. The system froze. Seven minutes later I was able to move the curs er around on the screen. I had a call from Peggy to  help with something, so I saved the file to my hard drive. It froze again, but I left the room, and it didn’t bother me.

Today, I opened the file to read the bill. It took seven minutes to open the file on my own machine. When it was completed, I couldn’t scroll down or move the pages much less read anything . If you believe your Senator or Congressman is reading this bill you are more naive than I am. I consider myself pretty good at using a PC, and I’m sure I can out do Senator Roland Burris, and even Senator Dick Durbin on PC usage. I also feel like I’m light years ahead of Debbie Halvorson. The only way these people are reading this bill is if it has been printed out for them.

If you think I am kidding, go to the government website and try downloading the bill yourself. If I am wrong, let me know how to do it right.


My son Mike read this post and downloaded HR 3200 in a few seconds. He Googled HR 3200 and selected the first government website on the list . He snet it to me via e-mail, and I was able to open it as easily as he downloaded it.

When technology works it is beautiful. When it doesn’t, it’s frustrating.

Greatness to Mediocrity In Three Weeks Flat

Dear Senators Durbin, Burris and Representative Halvorson:    Congratulations! You and your colleagues have proudly drafted and passed a bill that is the foundation for the destruction of the United States of America. This bill is not a stimulus but rather a stepping stone to socialism. It will take the United States from “Greatness to Mediocrity.”


Why are you sneakily adding Barack Obama’s campaign promises into reality by fear mongering the poor economy?

There is too little in the bill to actually stimulate the economy.

Why is there money in the bill for health care? What does my health have to do with stimulating the economy? There is also the little thing about giving you and the bureaucracy the power to decide what medical treatment a person will be allowed. Senator, I hope you and your family are also covered by this provision, but I pray you will never be faced with having the bureaucracy decide treatment for you.

Have you read the entire bill? Has anyone in either of the houses done so? The president is asking us to sacrifice. If this is such an urgent necessity, why do you fail to lead by example with self sacrifices? Why doesn’t the bill include a pay cut for all federal employees; yourself included?

Why isn’t there more in the bill to allow me to keep money to spend?

Why isn’t the bill loaded with incentives to make business flourish?

Why is there so much money included for Community Organizers?

Why is there an internal “Earmark” to build a rail line between Los Angeles and Las Vegas?

Why is there such a rush to pass this bill? I respect the president for giving you a deadline to get it done, but in the rush you are recklessly spending away the future of my country.

I have completely lost all confidence in you, and your ability to represent me. Obviously, you have not listened to your constituency by voting for this debacle called stimulus.

As far as I am concerned you are not my representative anymore.
