I'm so mad right now that it wouldn't surprise me if my blood pressure is nearing stroke level. The irony of that would be that if I DID have a stroke and got rushed to the emergency room, I'd have to wait behind a bunch of goddamn illegals, medicaid parasites and other welfare cheats who were in for such life-threatening maladies like a sore throat or a sprained ankle.
Think I'm kidding? Head down to your nearest large city indigent care emergency room. Check out the human debris that litters the waiting area. Check out the trash and general mess they leave behind--which we pay for, all on our nickel.
Meanwhile, working citizens with insurance that we paid for out of our own pockets via our JOBS wait in line, unless perhaps you begin barfing or projectile bleeding all over some El Salvadorean immigrant in for a toothache, and thus inconvenience him or his perpetually pregnant girlfriend.
So, I'm drinking some blood pressure medication as I type this, also known as Coors Light, so as not to risk a trip to the local medical zoo. I keep several frosted mugs in the big freezer for just such emergencies.
But what got this rant really going was yet another experience at a pharmacy/drug-store this evening.
A young black woman in stylish cut-offs, high-heels and expensive blouse "hobbles" up to the counter to get her painkillers. I hear the cashier say, "No charge." The woman turns to her boyfriend, dressed like a New Orleans pimp, and says, "Ain't dis Medicaid great!"
I tell the cashier to put my prescription back so I can follow this couple up to the front of the store. The woman stopped to grab a handbasket full of box candy like you buy at the movie theater. Her pimp/boyfriend/squeeze/what-the-hell-ever goes over by where they keep the cold drinks and fills up his handbasket with Starbucks Frappaccino drinks--each one costing over $2.
Up to the head cash register they go and I get in line behind them with just a plain Coke.
I was curious about something, and I wasn't to be disappointed.
The female parasite fished around in a designer leather wallet until she found her food stamps card--known as an Electronic Benefits Transaction card, or EBT for short.
By the way, did you know these slugs can also get freaking CASH with these things?
The female parasite used her welfare card to buy her candy. As she was putting it back in her designer leather wallet, I saw an American Express Gold Card, two Platinum Visa cards, a Master Card, Discover Card and a host of department store cards. They weren't hard to see as the parasitic bitch made a point of flashing them to the cashier and those of us in line.
What the BLOODY BLUE HELL IS THIS?!?
The pimp is next and buys his Starbucks with his OWN EBT CARD!
I so wanted to follow them out to the parking lot to see what kind of "ride" they were driving, courtesy of us taxpayers, but given the combination of my now extremely volatile mood, these assholes' cocky arrogant "urban hipster" attitude and posture, AND the fact that I am armed at all times, I (wisely) decided a trip to jail wasn't the best thing for me this Friday evening.
So I gritted my teeth and simply glared at these two piece of shit. The pimp looked at me funny and I bored a hole in him. All I saw was crosshairs right between his eyes. For the record, I am not a pretty guy to look at and early on in my federal law enforcement days, my partner's wife often joked about me definitely not having a "welcome wagon" face. Age has done nothing to soften that.
The pimp looked like he wanted to say something and I was silently BEGGING him to say something so that I could then say, "This piece of shit started the whole mess, your Honor."
I knew better, but even us middle-age guys are entitled to our fantasies now and then.
The two pieces of human shit left, and I asked the cashier why the hell didn't they ask for ID when food stamp frauds like that bought stuff.
"Against the law," she said.
Since WHEN is it against the law for a business merchant to ensure that the person giving them a goddamn GOVERNMENT ISSUED PAYMENT CARD is in fact the person
Of course, I also don't understand why U.S. citizens are not allowed to patrol our national borders armed to the teeth in order to repel borders and illegal invaders. Makes no damn sense to me.
The stupid, arrogant, fraudulent son of a bitch that poses as our president goes on tv and tells retirees and veterans, of which I'm one, that "he can't guarantee that those social security and veterans' checks will be issued."
But I'll guaran-damn-tee you that his piece of shit welfare cheat constituency will get their EBT cards and welfare cards and Section 8 housing allowances and medicaid and all the other bullshit he promised them.
Two words for you, Mr. President.
Two words. . .
