Compleat Redneck

Commentary from the boondocks. If it makes any sense, it is just by chance.

Cletus says he was considering going out and disrupting one of Rep. Griffith's townhalls but he can't find either his Brooks Brothers or Hart,H&S suit and just would feel right wearing his shorts and sandals. We all agreed that it wouldn't be right to subject innocent people to such a sight.

Elroy says he thinks the information Cletus got about the dess code for disrupting meetings may be a little off since most of the rioters seem to be dressed pretty much normally for people around here in the Summer.

I don't know about this whole Obamacare issue. My gut tells me that it won't be pretty at the same time I know something needs to be done. The old BBQ Emporium has medical insurance for our staff (If you call five people a staff) and it runs over $1000 a month for each. It goes up every years and I don't know if we can keep it.

Cletus says he is fortunate to be within a few months of Medicare so his biggest concern is "help" with his life style. Bubba wondered aloud if how Cletus lives could be referred to as any knid of "style" but we all have the same worries. No one here could be classified as "rich" and we will be depending on Medicare as we (hopefully) grow old. Reading comments from Dr. Emanuel, Obama's medical advisor, doesn't give anyone of us a warm, fuzzy feeling about the future.

Cletus says he figures from the comments he has been reading about Southern white guys being deranged and insane, they won't be real high on the "useful" list when it comes to treatment.

Elroy thinks Cletus is deliberately taking the most pessimistic view of the bills and reading the worse in every line. Cletus says that being a pessimist has never done him wrong. Things are almost never as bad as he expected.
