Tales from the O-NO Ranch 12-6-10

I bet most of you gentle readers know Maxine. Sure you do if you have a computer and receive e-mails.

She is the little ol’ granny dressed as if she just emerged from the “trailer-hood.” She wears dark glasses to hide the huge bags under her eyes and there is always a Marlboro between her fingers and sometimes a glass of who knows what in her other hand. Maxine would not be socially accepted by most groups that consider themselves educated beyond their capacity to have any common sense whatsoever! Maxine has a way of putting things in perspective and suddenly the sky becomes clear.

Maxine’s take on the health care bill is clear as Rocky Mountain spring water. According to Maxine this is a plan that we will be forced to purchase and fined if we don’t. It will cover an added 10 million folks without adding a single new doctor but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents (we are creating new jobs here). It was written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it and passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it. It was signed by a president who smokes and funded by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes and so on and on. You get Maxine’s reasoning here don’t ya?

This new health care bill to me is like sayin’, “I’m going to remember tomorrow?” How in the world can you remember tomorrow, Charlie Brown, when it ain’t got here yet and you have no clue as to what tomorrow will bring? It’s sort of like breeding your registered Red Angus cows to a Jersey bull and expecting a Hereford calf to be born. It just ain’t gonna’ happen. Surly we are being dummed down to the point that I’m afraid some of you may give up and give in. Maxine wouldn’t like that! Nor would I. We have gotten so p.c. in this day and age we don’t dare use any common sense and pat down and grope the folks at the airport that resemble the folks that attack our country. No sir, let’s get some little 5-year-old kid and examine him or her with a fine tooth comb. It’s stupid, just plain stupid and I don’t know how long we are willing to put up with this nonsense.

I’m with Maxine all the way, except I don’t think I will be puffin’ a Marlboro or tasting strong spirits this holiday season. Let’s plan ahead with our thinking and examine closely the next pile of whatever they try to get us to accept without question.

Okee dokee, I reckon I’m through with today’s lecture. Be safe, stay tuned, check yer cinch on occasion and I’ll c. ya. Long live Maxine!
