Obama, I'm Not Liking You So Much Anymore

Currently I'm considering writing a letter to someone but I'm just not sure to whom.  Maybe to Obama but that would require eating crow.  I've even been forced to speak up for him at about every turn here in Utah, most notably at Church because I thought (think) he is fabulous.

But things changed when I couldn't get a flu shot.

Couldn't find one.

But then neither could anyone else.   But then I finally did find them.  I went down to sign my name on the dotted line only to learn that I'M TOO OLD!!  That's right.  You heard it here.  I even explained that I went through chemotherapy twenty years ago, and lack an immune system in spades as a result, but that fell on deaf ears.  No one cares about my extenuating circumstances.  This is the reason I've decided to blame Obama.  Someone's got to take the blame.

Remember some months ago, the Internet went nuts saying Obama's Health Care Plan said he wanted to kill off old people?  I was no fool.  I didn't want to read 2,000 boring pages but I knew politicians weren't stupid.  They wouldn't put something like that in writing.  I didn't believe it.  But now I do.  He's trying to kill me!

So I got the flu and have really been sick with it for one reason or another for over a month.  Currently I feel like crap because I have a bellycular (my word for "stomach") hematoma from coughing my lungs out and I feel terrible because it's infected (well, duh.)

Did anyone hear about heading to the border for flu shots?  I'm still in the market.   I don't want any more of this sickness business.  I refuse to die.  I know it would only please the president.  I don't want to do that.  I also plan to blame Obama for any misery that I might have along the way to Mexico.

Anything besides the fact that I live in the greatest country in the world, I'm grateful for everything I have and that I am and for the very life I am living.

Drat.  I guess that negates everything I said heretofore.

This also explains why I've not been too regular with my blogging.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  I think I'm seeing shooting sparks now.  I'll go rest somewhere for a minute.

Thank goodness you're back! I was beginning to wonder if got a better offer and deserted your blog entirely. Maybe Ben will give you a lift to Mexico on the back of his motorcycle.

To think that the president of the united states is responsible for every flu shot is not true. Creating flu shots is a complicated process and this year they had to make two different shots (one for the flu and one for H1N1). There were delays and maybe it was over promised.

No matter who was president the same problem would have happened. It could have been Washington, Lincoln, or Reagan.

I think you're right. They're trying to kill off us old folks. I too am too old for the H1N1 flu shot. I don't plan to go without a fight though. I'll be kicking and screaming all the way!

Sorry, trb. I thought the sarcasm was dripping. I'm still not recovered enough to say I'm truly free of total ressentment at being sick and the only thing I can truly blame is my own body at being a little more vigilent.
