If one is upset over the Recent Vote on Health Care, Kevin “Coach” Collins has a pretty good idea today on the Collins Report.
In the dust and fury of the past few days the brazenly cynical Mr. Stupak showed his middle finger to you. On Friday afternoon when it was sure to be lost in the noise, Stupak announced his price and it was a rather cheap one befitting the character of the man himself. His envelop held just $726,409 for improving three airports in his district. So there you have it, you were suckered.
Giving Judas what he deserves
Now it’s our turn to “slip a little something” to this sticky fingered Judas.
Since he’ll now be in a tough re-election fight he’ll need donations. I will be sending him my contribution of thirty dimes which will serve as the 30 pieces of silver his model settled for…”
Mr. Collins application is for a different reason than my own – I truly believe that the entire Health Care Bill is a massive spending bill disguised to destroy the very fabric of our Social and Economic Structure, however one can find much more eloquent dissertations elsewhere. I tend to be more straight forward and the concept of expressing my displeasure leans to the literal.
I will be sending my 30 dimes to my state Legislator who sold out at the last moment. Who knows why he chose to. As far as I know there is no big massive monetary reward waiting in the wings here.
I haven’t decided what message to include to ensure he understands. Perhaps
“It may be my obligation to forgive you for your treasonous actions, however you can ensure I will never forget. Spend this well Sir. Your opponent will be receiving 100 fold for his/her campaign.”
If one does choose to do express their displeasure, please do not forget to send dimes that were minted after 1965. Ones minted pre ’65 actually were made of silver and are worth more than a dime. Save your coins for trade if need be when the Dollar becomes useful for visits to the Lavatory versus the local big box store.
