Â I don’t try to push my personal politics onto everybody; would much rather have a blog that shows how politics and everyday life interesect, but please read thisÂ if you have the time.Â Our country has gone through some amazing changes since the Bill Kristal memo in 1992, and then when Newt swept the house.Â None for the better.
One point that I can talk about off the top of my head is Medicaid as I was an SSI Claims Rep.Â Have heard of Medicaid doing some amazingly stupid and horrible things, but taking a person’s house?Â A house is an “ism” or something that is essential to a person’s daily life and well being.Â Funny that they use an example in Florida as Florida is one of two states that allows or allowed–not going to look up the new bankruptcy laws now–people to keep their homes after declaing bankruptcy.
So in Florida you can transfer assets to your kids and keep your home.Â But if your only asset is your home and you only have a few thousand honestly earned dollars in the bank, it’s sayanora to your home?
In this country we make people pay for being sick; we make people pay for getting old.Â I fear old age not for the declining facilities I might have but for the possiblity I will have to give all my money to the government if I get sick, and then go on SSI and Medicaid.Â I have seen it happen too many times not to be scared.Â Want to fight me on this?Â Go to BIO where somebody will gladly take your

Courting’s been nominated for a Koufax, best writing, blog, and BIO’s been nominated for best community blog.Â It’s been almost a year since BIO began and we have become a model for a new type of liberal community blog where we allow other voices.

Have a number of names to shout out; incredible blogging friends who have been helping me through this amazing wondrous journey.Â Unfortunately I’m too exhausted to link them now, so I hope to tomorrow.Â
If you came to Courting expecting straight politics, you have the wrong blog, though I do expect my senator, Chuckala Schumer as they call him at the apartment complex his parents live in, and my mom did, does the right thing.. I have been very disappointed by the senators from my state.Â They have nothing to lose and everything to gain from being proactive, and I don’t mean running a presidential campaign.Â
Manhattan was the scene of the sole attack on a civilian target in modern history.Â New Yorkers didn’t want the war in Iraq; nor did we want this administration.
As I said, Courting’s not a political blog in that sense.Â Or tries not to be.Â There are some great political blogs, most especially BIO. I do what I do best which is an eclectic mix/
