Not Deep Enough

Summary:
My shoulder aches – because my pockets have been picked. The pain is chronic because of the pain inflicted by the government, which it inflicts – so it says – to ameliorate suffering. To “help” people. It must say so because to say what it’s really doing – helping itself, to power, by reducing us all to a state of penury and dependence – would be . . . unwise. But what am I babbling about? It’s the same problem almost all of us whose pockets aren’t deep enough to leave money enough to help ourselves after the government has helped itself to our resources have. I tore something in my shoulder – probably my rotator cuff. I don’t know, exactly – because I can’t afford to get an MRI, which costs about ,000 if you aren’t “covered”

My shoulder aches – because my pockets have been picked. The pain is chronic because of the pain inflicted by the government, which it inflicts – so it says – to ameliorate suffering.

To “help” people.

It must say so because to say what it’s really doing – helping itself, to power, by reducing us all to a state of penury and dependence – would be . . . unwise.

But what am I babbling about?

It’s the same problem almost all of us whose pockets aren’t deep enough to leave money enough to help ourselves after the government has helped itself to our resources have.

I tore something in my shoulder – probably my rotator cuff. I don’t know, exactly – because I can’t afford to get an MRI, which costs about $1,000 if you aren’t “covered” by health insurance, which I am not.

I am not “covered” because insurance has been made unaffordable by the government – which “helps” by forcing the generally healthy with only occasional and remediable problems to offset the cost of “coverage” of the chronically sick. The result is more chronically sick – my shoulder issue, for instance.

And, more need of  “help.”

But it is a manufactured need. I could afford to help myself – to pay for an MRI out of my own pocket – were it not for the fact that my pockets are empty. Not because I haven’t earned the necessary money – or because I spent it on some other thing – but because the government helped itself to my money.

Leaving me without enough money.

Every one of us who works – who isn’t earning enough to “help” the government help itself to power at our expense and leave enough left over to help ourselves – is in the same predicament.

Which is why almost everyone thinks they need the “help” of the government.

The $1,000 it would cost to get an MRI was spent – unwillingly – on my most recent rent installment, the money  I am forced to pay to be permitted to live in the house I paid for in full more than 15 years ago. I am forced to pay rent in perpetuity on my home – in order to “help” finance the education of other people’s children in government schools.

My shoulder comes second.

The good news, I suppose, is that in a few years these kids will be forced to “help” me – by paying taxes, including Social Security taxes – which are not “contributions,” by the way. This will make it harder for them to help themselves; to be able to afford a place of their own, for instance.
