First, I'll start with the comment I just received on my last post and I posted it because I allow everyone to be heard on this blog even if I disagree. It's called being polite! So let me post it in quotes!
"If you had spent less on horses,dinning out, cars ect and saved for the last 18 years maybe this would have been do able.It is all ways someone elses fault right, not yours.Give me a break. !!!!The me generation , their chickens coming home to roost. "
Now, I must admit that I let loose on Miss Kaylee with a follow up comment. Feel free to read it. This really pissed me off.
#1- I don't recall putting fault or blame on anybody for the lack of qualifying for a low interest loan. Simply a shock and a hardy "fuck you" to people who actually get off their ass and work for a living.
#2- I am a Baby Boomer, not a "ME" generation. So let us get that straight.
#3- 40% of my retirement fund has now gone to the Wall Street big wigs pockets for their selfish indulgences along with a whole lot of other people's hard earned money. A retirement of which I have carefully contributed to and do still. Also of which I am allowed to borrow against for said child's college, however, there is nothing left to do so with. It's called TIA-CREF. It's mostly gone now and it only took a year. And that was NOT my fault.
#4- I worked my way through college and have always kept a roof over this child's head and food in her stomach. She has always come first and has never lacked for anything. Must have done something right there along the lines as she has turned out to be a pretty damned good human being. And will actually contribute to society rather than suck off of it. Now I understand the need for help for lots of folks who aren't able to or lucky enough or have been stuck in said situations. I do understand the need for some folks to call on government help. I understand that. I never had to, but I worked my ass off in order to not. How much do you contribute to charities, Kaylee? Stephen and I always manage to come up with something for those less fortunate.
#5- What Job, Kaylee, do you do to contribute to society? I'm curious, really. I'm a Pediatric Intensive Care Registered Nurse. Every night shift I go to work requires me to saves little children's lives. And if you think that is the Doctor's job, well, let's talk a little reality here. I am at the bedside, watching labs, knowing what they mean, watching vital signs, knowing what they mean and it's up to me to let that Doctor know that this particular kid is going to DIE, if we do not start to take action. How many fucking chest compressions have you done on a child to save it's life? Let's see, I've lost count. How many code carts have you cracked open and started pushing life saving drugs on kids before the Doc got to the bedside to bark orders? Let's see, in my 20 years of doing this, I've lost count. Stop at any car accidents recently and keep someone alive until the paramedics show up?, Kaylee? Hmmm, Again, I've lost count. Rescue any animals? Kaylee? Rescue or feed anything? OH and let me remind you and anyone else out there that if you think a pediatric nurse makes more money than an adult nurse? Well, the answer is no we don't. Children's hospitals everywhere bank on the fact that you won't leave to take of adults because you like to care for kids, so the pay is much less than you think.
So unless you know what the fuck I have done to contribute during my 46 yrs on this earth, you have got nothing to say about this and how DARE you even hint at my "Greed?" How dare you!
