This Week's Attack Dawg Bite Award Goes To
The New Johnny Rebs
Have you noticed the politicians and their constituents that refuse to accept Obamacare and the expansion of Medicaid for the most part have deep Southern drawls? The Affordable Care Act clearly is the new battleground on the Mason-Dixon Line, and this war is anything but civil. Twenty-four states refuse to expand Medicaid and all but four are Southern states and states out West. Alaska, Wisconsin, Maine, and Indiana are non-Southern states that refuse the expansion.
I’m not surprised by these Northern states' refusal to expand Medicaid, which are homes to nuts like Sarah Palin, Scott Walker, Paul LePage and Mike Pence. Actually, Maine and Alaska probably have ten black & brown citizens between them. So, I’ll call those two states honorary “Dixie” states because they are almost segregated and influenced by one race. What’s disappointing
about these twenty-four states is their deep confederate, I mean conservative strangle-hold on anything the President tries to do. Their hatred for President Obama and “his” Obamcare is so intense; collectively, they are willing to deny over 54 million of their most needy residents healthcare. Most of this hateful useless obstruction comes from those twenty-four states that live in the land of cotton and look away to Dixieland. Don’t get me wrong. There are kind and
generous southerners within those twenty-four states who support programs like Medicaid expansion. Their challenge is they have to live with those Southern Crackers who dominate southern government. The sons and daughters of the confederacy are alive and well and out in full force. The sad difference between their ancestors is that they were victims of a very bleak and ignorant period. There is no excuse for this type of behavior today. Denying their citizens access to proper healthcare is nothing more than hateful intolerant behavior. It deserves a hateful intolerant response- this week’s Attack Dawg Bite Award!
The dog bite award for celebrities who say and do stupid obnoxious things.
