monday medicine [no pun intended!]

i don't like to get political on this blog. . .
*but you probably already knew that from this post
please don't get your panties in a wad over this and
please don't think that i am rallying support for the Obama health-care plan,
i simply appreciated the humor and honesty written in the clip below..............
[and if anyone knows where this originated, i would love to give the author credit]
This morning I was awakened by my alarm clock, powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly, regulated by the US Department of Energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time, as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to send via the US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After work, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to a house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and fire marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it's valuables thanks to the local police department.

I then log on to the internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and post on and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right.

On a separate note, this is the email that I received from my dad this morning. . .

  1. Nice....a very helpful perspective.

  2. That is Awesome!!


  3. hmmm, yes, I think that is a perspective worth considering. :)

  4. yep, always good to have some perspective;-)

  5. I see the point. But still firm in my belief. The health reform is something we don't talk about much in my house, because my husband and I are at odds with each other.

  6. Christina--yes, that's why i try not to post a lot of political jargon on here.......

    wasn't the email from my dad hilarious?! ;-)
