Brother Rob Thurman gave this bitch a crown!!
It feels natural (wink).
Have you ever taken stock of things and wondered what you’d do if you ruled the world?
Mmmhmm, me too!
If this bitch ruled the world I'd sport a fierce crown on my Afro...and I’d declare war on bullshit.
Oh, I’d consider declaring all manner of other shit…but even the Ruler of the Known Universe needs the will of the people to get shit done and the people don't like being told what to do or when to do it even if that direction is correct as a motherfucker.
But bullshit and this bitch would go to war.
For example, this bitch has been reading up on President Obama’s move to reform health care.
The President has invited labor leaders, politicians from both sides of the aisle, medical professionals, business leaders and even real people (wink) to the White House to discuss and debate health care reform.
A bitch thinks that’s a great start, but it opens the door to bullshit.
Opponents have already voiced their objections to anything government related concerning health care. As usual, they oppose but do not propose…a clear indication that bullshit is about to slither into the room and stank up the debate.
If I ruled the world today’s meeting would be mine and we’d kick it off with a list of known things.
In 2008 health care spending was 4.3 times the amount spent on national defense…and the product purchased ain’t working, people aren’t covered and preventable things aren’t being prevented.
46 million Americans are uninsured yet the United States spends more on health care than other industrialized nations…and those nations provide insurance to their citizens.
Millions of people lose their homes to foreclosure due to unaffordable health care costs.
It costs more to treat an illness than to prevent one…but prevention requires access to affordable health care.
And I could go on and on and on.
We’d spend at least half of the meeting on the known shit…on the realities of the health care system as it currently stands…and then this bitch would break out a marker and some blank paper and present the gathering with a challenge – let's fix this broken ass shit.
Not tinker with it…not denounce the ideas of others without offering solutions…and not piss in the bowl of reform Corn Flakes just to score political points at the expense of the American people.
It seems beyond logical to start by publicly admitting that we have a problem...that what exists today has not been, is not now and will not work.
And this is one of the most important policy debates this nation has ever faced.
A bitch shudders to think of the record setting reality denying stankified panderific 'Is that camera on?' bullshit sure to plague it.
