I just couldn't help it!
I just couldn't help it! I received a 'form' letter from my congressman, Paul Ryan, Republican, 1st District, Wisconsin. In it he stated:

"As more and more people find themselves forced into the government-run plan, the only way to contain costs will be through rationing care by the federal government. The decision as to whether or not you receive a potentially life-saving treatment will not be a decision made by you, your family and your doctor. It is a decision the government will make for you."


I just couldn't help it! I sent him this and I FEEL SO GOOD!

THIS IS AN OUTRIGHT LIE AND YOU KNOW IT! You are no different than any of the other lying jerks in your party of dissembling fractious idiots who are bent on destroying the fabric of our country. I detest you and all you stand for, Mr. Ryan...you spout lies like a fountain and your brain functions at the level of a retarded four-year-old. You treat your constituents as though they are as stupid as you are and then expect them to believe that you care about anything other than your own pocketbook; your own welfare; and your own future. If you had to live the way the rest of us do, Mister, you would not have the gall to send out a letter containing the above. You make me as sick as this country is from eight years of Republican lies, deceit, and the fundamental desecration of our Constitution that your party has foisted upon this country and then you have the gall to write the above! HOW DARE YOU PRETEND THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAS CAUSED OUR PRESENT SYSTEM TO FUNCTION THE WAY IT DOES? HOW DARE YOU?

1. Atta girl!
Send him another letter...

Remind the colossal jerk that HIS healthcare is run by the government he professes to despise. Ask him if he's willing to give that up?

He is a massive part of the problem, for sure.

You did good!

5. Already on it...
I already did...and the piece of crap he sent back contained the above! He's a piece of **** who doesn't/won't listen and doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself (and his pugly cronies)! I try to write to him every week just to keep it off my mind. I figure if I keep giving him pieces of my mind that I won't have one left after awhile and therefore won't give anymore of a **** than he does! ;>

2. People that can't afford "heath insurance" don't aren't getting any of these
"potentially life-saving" treatments, and it's not their choice either.

4. Good to tell the liar off. Now photo-copy the letter and the facts that dispute it and hang the two
around town on the public BBs--supermarket, post office, etc.

I wanted to say that your letter was too angry and would get ignored, but I forgot that this seems to be the kind of thing the RW politicians respond to.

6. GO GET HIM!
That sanctimonious liar will never read it, not that he'd understand all them big words if he did, but you'll singe the nose hairs of one of his underlings.

GREAT letter.

Think about sending it to the newspaper.

8. What is it with DU idiots
that can't bear the temptation to throw "Retarded" around as an insult?

Unrec for being no better than the POS you wrote the letter to.

9. So sorry for
using my right of free speech. What is it with people like you who think that they can tell others how to speak, but reserve the right for criticism to themselves? Perhaps you could learn to deal with a little less 'political correctness' and allow a little more freedom of expression...but, O yeah, that's the problem with people who can't handle reading DU. In my dictionary 'retarded' is defined as: "adj. slowed or delayed in development, esp. mentally" which describes Paul Ryan perfectly. I didn't succumb to 'temptation' - I was speaking the truth whether you can handle it or not.

10. Freedom of Speech
Edited on Sun Aug-23-09 07:54 PM by sailor65
doesn't make a piece of shit any less of a piece of shit. And how about you spend a little more time here before you talk about who can handle reading DU. Or, just go back where you most likely came from. This is DU, not FR.

11. O
910 posts makes you an expert, hunh? When you can speak without using words the way you do, I will be more inclined to 'listen' to your addled thoughts. Small words from small minds...and a bully, too.

12. A sincere apology.
I just read your journal and hereby offer a sincere apology. I stand by my right to speak any way that I wish, but I now have a small bit of understanding to your reaction of the word I used. To have a child that has been harmed in any way is heart-breaking and I really should not have used it in speaking about/to Ryan. I will try to be more sensitive in the future and I will pray for you and your child. It should not have taken a kick in the head from you to make me realize that my anger at Ryan exceeded standards of decency. Calling people names does not help anything...a lesson we both need to learn.
