My Opinion of the Government is obvious.
THEY ALL ARE CRIMINALS AND NEED TO BE
ARRESTED FOR TREASON AND EXTORTION.

"I AM SO AFRAID"
LAST EVENING (October 15, 2013 at about 4:45PM here in Corvallis Oregon) as I was preparing dinner I glanced into the living room to check on my wife and found her in tears and wringing her hands all the while as she was watching the evening news.
I asked her what was wrong and she weepingly said "I AM SO AFRAID".
I must digress here to provide an explanation before I continue with the article:
In December of 2012, my wife had been diagnosed with "Vascular Dementia - ALZHEIMER'S" after experiencing a fall where she had hit her head on the concrete driveway experiencing a severe concussion. She spent several weeks in the hospital and was transferred to a rehabilitation care and evaluation facility for a few months, with the possibility of being placed in a long term memory care facility (politically correct version of a mental hospital for the severely impaired). I did not allow the placement and after many arguments with medical personal I brought her home. It was my personal opinion that home care as well as have her attend an adult care facility three times a week would be better for her, in her then present condition. THIS HAD BEEN WORKING WELL UNTIL LAST NIGHT. What has taken me almost a year to modify was destroyed in one news cast having an interview with two members of "THE TEA PARTY REPUBLICAN CONGRESS".
My wife and I are each hard of hearing so we use headsets for the audio portion of a broadcast, and as I was making dinner I was not using mine. My hearing problem is part of my Veterans Disability, my wife's is part of growing old and her head injury last December when she fell. Like most elderly (or the politically correct version Senior Citizens) we are living on a very restricted income. My wife's Social Security is $1,024.00 combined with my own of $764.00 and my VA disability of $127.00 (by the way "YES" the disability is under appeal and has been since 1970 -- yes you read correctly 1970 but I will not get into that for this article). Our house payment is $1,095.00 + plus utilities and food expenses and new medications it is very difficult but we manage some how. Financially we lost everything when banking went to hell in a hand-basket a few years back. I was in the construction industry and lost 3 major 200 and 300 home projects which I had already funded out of pocket for materials. I am only stating the financial situation so you can then understand my wife's uncontrolled panic.
I will now continue with the article;
In between her sobs she managed to say she was so afraid we would lose everything again and this time not even have a home to live in. I asked what she was talking about, and then she told me the congresswoman and congressman being interviewed by the reporter said "THEY WILL BE STOPPING OUR SOCIAL SECURITY, OUR MEDICARE, AND YOUR VA ON NOVEMBER FIRST. WE WON'T HAVE ANY MONEY AND THEY WILL THROW US OUT BECAUSE WE CAN'T PAY THE HOUSE PAYMENT. WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE KITTIES (we have 4) or the deer, THEY WILL STARVE AND FREEZE BECAUSE IT IS GETTING COLD. WE WILL HAVE TO LIVE IN OUR CAR." I tried to calm her, but she had the idea now locked firmly in her (ALZHEIMER'S DIMENTIA) mind and there was no stopping it. After about 15 minutes, and having turned the channel to Bonanza where Adam and Little Joe were involved in a fight with rustlers with Pa and Haus riding in to help she managed to forget what was causing her to cry and panic.
We had dinner and the remainder of the evening prior to her going to bed at 9:15 went along without further incident. The calm all ended this morning (10-16-13 5:15 AM) when I got up because she had gotten out of bed. I found her in the living room watching the morning news on CNN and sobbing and crying again. For those who do not know it from experience Alzheimer's patients have a strange configuration that occurs in their thought patterns which brings things back that you thought they may have forgot. Particularly concern short term memory. A thought or idea that had been forgotten will come back unexpectedly, particularly if induced by a reminder, such as Ted Cruz doing a fanatical rant. It was worse because CNN was running a repeat of the interview that had set her off last night.
Where am I going with this you must be asking yourselves right about now, and to be completely honest I am not certain myself. (Maybe Alzheimer's is contagious.) What I think I am trying to explain that the incident presently on-going in D.C. concerning the funding and shutting down of the government is having a far reaching effect on people who are only trying to live from one day to the next. Unfortunately the people in congress (yes particularly the TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS) by their own statements do not care and are doing what ever they can get away with to make it worse.
In the rerun of the interview with a congresswoman and her associate that was originated last night it shows the exact intent and feeling. This congresswoman said "It is not our concern for what difficulties some American people may be going through. They are living on government dole and need to find a way to cover their lives. It is not our responsibility to give them money, they are leaches and we don't need them. Social Security, Medicare, VA disability checks is free money for not doing anything and that has to go away. If our stopping money from going to these people is a problem, IT IS THEIR PROBLEM NOT OURS. Let them go beg for money from some where else. They are not entitled to what they are crying about, and if Senator Cruz along with the other Tea Party members can stop these give away's to non deserving people WE WILL BE MUCH BETTER OFF CAUSING THE US TO GO BANKRUPT."
I am not going to rant about their committing by yelling Treason and Extortion. Anyone who has the ability to read and comprehend the law knows what they are doing should have them all incarcerated and then hung publicly. Or at the very minimum a free vacation in "GITMO" for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Except in this case they consider the enemy "THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES". There has to be some major changes, and the changes have to be soon.
It is not just the Tea Party, or Republicans or Democrats the changes have to be in the thinking of the citizens of the US. We, as a people, must wake up pay attention and stop this rapidly increasing slide into oblivion.
SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION?
"WHO DO I BLAME FOR THE PANIC?"
Is it CONGRESS, THE PRESIDENT, CNN, OR WHO?
WE ARE ALL TO BLAME -- LET'S FIX IT!
