So my friend Melissa. The one I posted about just before I took my hiatus. You know. THAT ONE!
She finally unfriended me on Facebook. And blocked me.
Whoops. I think I pissed her off.
I actually have to admit that I don’t miss her/them/it. I’m actually calmer on Facebook.
Things finally came to a head about three weeks ago. I don’t remember what was exactly being discussed preached about but I do know that Melissa’s only other liberal friend Kristen, at least the only one that would engage her, was being called a liar, stupid, an idiot, and lots of other Christian names that I won’t go into. I only point out the Christian part because it never ceases to amaze me that those who are most vocal about their faith/religion are the least kind, least understanding of any people I’ve ever met.
Anyway, Kristen, the friend was being beaten up on pretty badly so me being me, and my inability to just let things go, I got out my trusty typewriter and had at them.
I won’t go into what I said, but I think the reason Melissa finally unfriended me is because as a part of my tirade, I finally asked her something I’d been wanting to ask since I first started hearing her rants on healthcare.
Melissa has never been in good health. She was sickly when I knew her and based on her Facebook status updates she still is. To make matters worse she is disabled and has to have a scooter to get around. None of this is important…
you are rallying the troops again Obama and his healthcare plan.
So I asked the question: You are unemployed. Your husband is unemployed. You just moved to a new city without a job. You are constantly talking about your trips to the doctor and you railed for DAYS about the problems you’ve had with your new motorized chair. What I would really like to know is who pays for all of this? Who is providing your healthcare? Who’s footing the bill for this new chair? Who is it? No really who is it?
I was unfriended and blocked so that I can no longer contact her.
I guess I shouldn’t have asked the question publicly. But I always say you’ve got to call a spade a spade. If you are going to preach about the socialist nature of the healthcare bill then you need to pony up and start paying your own way. Then perhaps your argument will hold some water.
