Craigslist Postings From the Edge
Heed my advice: No matter where you live, no matter how liberal your state or city, never spelunk into the politics section of Craigslist. Because even in Massachusetts, Navy blue among the bluest states, you'll find postings such as this. This isn't just one boo aimed at Obama that was cherry-picked among a sea of partisan, left wing supporters of Obama. This is typical of such idiocy that we've seen overrunning the pages of virtually any Craigslist politics forum anywhere in the country.
What follows is my retort to this EEG flatliner:
I've long been mystified why and how Massachusetts Craigslist has been taken over by so many right wing idiots whose feet spend more time in their mouths than on the ground. This posting takes the cake. Because only a knuckle-dragging, right wing moron like you would ever A) Think that Obama is a socialist and B) proudly posts a picture claiming that Russia had socialism. Russia for 72 years had a communist regime, not a socialist one. Socialism is defined by what we see in many Latin American countries such as Venezuela. Just because the English translation of "CCCP" is "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics" doesn't mean they were socialist any more than the National Socialists of 1933-1945 Germany (aka the Nazis).
Besides, only an ambulatory organ donor such as yourself shrieks about socialism without having any understanding of the true definition of socialism (which is never more needed than in the current health care debate, which is obviously the only overhaul most of us will likely see in our lifetimes) nor its benefits. Obama is trying to get affordable health care for everyone. No one will tax you unless you make over $250,000 a year, no one's going to kill your grandma, no one's going to require that you see a "death panel", no one's advocating health care for illegal immigrants and government will not tell you which option you must take. These are long-discredited talking points that mainly started on Fox "News" and Sarah Palin's Facebook page.
Recycled teabaggers such as yourself are tools of lobbying groups, Big Pharma and health "care" entities that are already so bloated from denying people like you and yours health care over the years (they're the REAL death panels) that they can afford to spend a total of $1.4 million A DAY on lobbyists. That's over half a billion dollars a year. Any industry that can afford to spend that much on 3300 lobbyists (roughly 6 per federal lawmaker) is one that plainly doesn't need help.
