the whole time people are saying we're gonna be communists real quick. we're gonna be living like china, and cuba, and the old soviet union, and i laughed, but the joke is on me, cause people are actually right. i can't stand smoking, but i remember watching the news a week or two ago, and they passed a new law where you can't smoke in certain areas in nyc, and on the beaches anymore, and people were protesting, and having a smoke out. and while i don't like smelling smoke, or breathing it in one woman said if this keeps going on the next thing they're gonna be telling us is we can't eat this, and we can't eat that, and no more fast food, and no more booze, and you won't be able to eat mcdonalds anymore, or any of that bad food. then i understood their plight, and thought ''wow she's actually right, and she's got a point cause that's exactly what they're going to do'' obummer's wife is all over the tv talking about kids being healthy, and everyone to stop being fat slobs, and to start eating right, and everything you hear nowadays on the news is about obesity. obesity is the new smoking. you don't really hear about smoking anymore. while mrs obummer is talking it up you see her husband going around different places, and stuffing himself with cheesesteaks, and drinking beers. get real, and stop forcing this crap on everybody! this all coincides with this health care law. all these liberals love to target anyone who says something that might be racist, or homophobic, and they're the first to point the finger, but they don't think anything about calling someone a fat slob or disgusting sloth. they can go to hell!
i just needed to vent sorry for the rant. oh, and another thing. if mr government motors wants more fuel efficiency then maybe he should get his company to stop the production of suburbans, and all these gas guzzling trucks! how can he say we need more fuel efficient vehicles when he's still producing, and selling all kinds of trucks, and suv's, and other gas guzzlers? this makes me red.
