CAN YOU READ THIS???

Hey folks, as all that follow me, and keep up with not only my blog, but also those of you who have purchased one of or both my CDs, know I am concerned about the excesses in our government.  Well, I have discovered another area where we as a country have over extended ourselves for the sake of immigrants.  Sometimes, it is not just for immigrants but we do foolish things for our citizens.  At times, we spend a lot of money to help a segment of our population when it is not necessary.  We do things to solve problems when there is a much easier solution.  BUT NO, our leaders in all their glory and smarts just throw money at the problem.  Your and my money, not their own. And by the way, I thought no immigrants were to be covered by Obamacare.  Just caught that “FOOL” in another lie.

One such problem arose, or came to my attention, the other day when I got a letter from the health insurance company that covers my wife.  Most, if not all of you, have received this letter but like so many things you simply did not notice.  Maybe I noticed just because I’m a GOBY.  Let me explain the term GOBY for you.  When my first grandchild came along, my daughter and son-in-law asked me what name I wanted to use.  I told them it was their job to name the child; and they made me understand, “What name did I want to be called?”  I thought for just a second and replied, “grumpy old bastard” fits me pretty well.  So they took the three letters, added a “y” so now I am “GOBY”.  True story and by the way I’m proud to wear the title and proud of it.  It is like a “badge of honor” and I sparkle with delight when the kids holler, “GOBY, GOBY come here”. I even have other people who have taken to calling me “GOBY”; and it does not offend me even the slightest. Now, back to the insurance “thing-a-ma-jig”.  They, the company, had included a couple of pages, front  and back, of the info in different languages.  I did not count how many languages but there where about 30, maybe more.  Some I had never heard of.  Let me ask you if you have ever heard of Chamorro? How about Telugu? How about Punjabi or Yoruba?  Just how many people or we talking about?  It can not be more than a very few.  For you doubters, just walk around all day and ask everyone you come in contact with if they speak one of these.  And I mean everyone, in business, at WalMart, everywhere you go, then report back to me. If you can find even one, then maybe I’ll “quit my bitchin'”.  They even have it printed in Navajo, Cherokee and Choctaw.  These are native American languages.  Just how many Indians do we have in this country that do not understand and speak English.  None is the answer for all you “liberal dumbasses”. Thank you so very much!!! In order for the government to produce such a document they have to employ someone who can speak and write in these languages.  That cost “MONEY”, lots of “MONEY”.  That is money from you and me as in “TAXES”.  This is done with all government correspondence and is a “WASTE”.  The taxes are higher because they have to pay someone to “sit on their ass” until they need them to write something, I guess.  It is the same thing that WalMart does when they and Home Depot list every item in Mexican.  They have to charge you and I more for every item to cover the cost of doing so; and it does not benefit most of us a bit. Call me racist, or what ever, I do not care; for I have broad shoulders and can carry the load.  Just don’t do it to my face because it might just lead to an “ass whupping.”  Yours or mine, but an ‘ass whupping” just the same.

I can hear it all now, all you people saying, “this is no big problem” and you are right I guess. But, do you not realize all these little things add up to a lot of expenditure that could be avoided?  Always remember, “A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED”.  It only makes “COMMON SENSE” to save what you can.  It’s a “penny here, a penny there” and soon you have dollars.  So, go out today and do the survey so you can report back to me.  Also, go out and use some “COMMONSENSE” as it is free unless you send me a donation or you buy one of my CDs from the link below.
