A recent reply to one of my posts says that my skimpy AARP profile "tells all." I am from Tom Delay country. True, Tom Delay represented Sugar Land, but he has been gone for more than three years. He was indicted on several counts, some of them dismissed.
The "tells all" remark is a fallacy based on faulty reasoning based on the writer's concealed implied syllogism that I am from Sugar Land, Tom Delay territory; therefore, I am questioning health care reform. The major premise of the argument in that person's reply to my post rests on a hasty generalization; therefore, it is faulty and cannot stand. The faulty major premise leads directly to that person's quantum leap to an inaccurate conclusion that can be contradicted by delving deeper into the facts.
Facts: I am an Independent, a swing voter, who listens to no hard-shelled party liner and weighs both sides of an issue in Rogerian fashion to arrive at conclusions. Also, I am a retired college teacher who is deeply concerned with health care reform, and I do not want my quality of health care diminished. I expect my representatives and senators to read the lengthy health care reform bill and communicate findings to the public before they vote. I desire health care reform, but not at the expense of my own health care. I am appalled by the fact that AARP does not read the bill carefully enough to ask for an exclusion of offensive sections of the bill that adversely affect the health care of senior citizens.

This puts both democrats and republicans on notice, we are no longer taking orders from dictators:
I put my money where my mouth is. I sent every individual member in the House and Senate one each of this pictured notice through this phone # 1-800-496-3266 after seeing a representative speaking with a reporter telling her how every member received these slips in their offices for a total of 4.5 million.
When I called and ordered a set for myself and another set for my wife upon her request of 535, for a total of 1,070 slips, to be delivered to Washington, D.C. for $29.95 for each set for individual delivery to each individual senator and representative. The good American fellow who took my order told me 6 million had been sent out so far. This tells me there are 1.5 million more of these about to be delivered before my order is delivered. He told me today would be the latest for mine to arrive on their office door stoop. I feel GOOD! about what I did but real scared about what will happen to our constitution should this healthcare bill go into law.
I just don't think it is the government's duty to do charity work. They are treading on the church's duty to do God's work. The government is now violating the supreme court ruling separation of church and state is my conclusion about what they are trying to do.
