As of late, I've been publishing my 100 Word Challenge responses on Thursday, in order to keep Sunday (the due day for the challenge) open for Sarah or whatever other fiction I've been working on.
Well, it seems that Velvet Verbosity has a broken blog and is overwhelmed with work and stuff, so her schedule has not permitted her to link the posts from last time, nor has she been able to post a new challenge this week. So I guess you're stuck with me - or whatever it is that's going on in my head.
I want you to do me a favor. This isn't something I would normally do, but there's something that's been stuck in my craw for a while and this post really brought it to the fore. So I'm going to ask you to read that post. Go ahead. I'll wait.
Now. Having read that post, are you as unimpressed as I am by the Republican talking heads that keep saying "The American people don't want health care reform" every chance they get?
In a word? Bullshit. I'm one of those "American People" they keep talking about - they never asked ME, but they're willing to put words in my mouth readily enough.
This is the only industrialized country in the world where you can go broke and lose everything, if you get sick enough.
Dear Republicans. I am an American. You don't speak for me.
