Sadie’s observations on life in America today

life_is_spinning_out_of_control_poster-p228448126724562643trma_400Sadie has noticed that life in America is making less and less sense. Below is the email she sent me, with three examples to make that point:

Paying it forward is a third-party beneficiary concept that involves doing something good for someone in response to a good deed done on your behalf or a gift you received. When you pay it forward, however, you don’t repay the person who did something nice for you. Instead, you do something nice for someone else. For example, if someone changes your tire while you are stranded on the highway, you might shovel your elderly neighbor’s walkway after snow has fallen.

So how’s that working out in the real world?

Ridiculously wealthy Atherton, the neighborhood for an Obama fundraiser last year, thinks that it helped create “shovel ready jobs.”

Last Sunday, multi-million dollar homes in Atherton had offensive graffiti sprayed on them. The graffiti was found on walls, fences and even a car.
Many of the messages said “F*** the 1%.”

AND ….

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

A Florida restaurant is being forced to pass their healthcare expenses onto customers.

Sandra Clark, Director of Operations at Gator’s Dockside, told WRDQ that the restaurant is now adding a one percent surcharge to every customer’s bill to help pay for all 500 full time employees’ healthcare.

“Affordable healthcare is part of the cost of doing business. We’re definitely doing it [adding the surcharge] to stay afloat…,” she explained.

The restaurant group expects to pay up to $500,000 a year for its workers’ healthcare, but it does not expect to come close to recouping that recovering that.

AND….

Republique, a trendy, expensive restaurant in Los Angeles is now charging an extra 3% Obamacare surcharge on every bill. Bill Chait, one of the owners, is certain that his customers will be fine with the price increase.

    So, to review, we must pay a much higher premium for ourselves (knew that would happen), must pay the increases on employed premiums anytime we purchase a good/service (knew that would happen), and pay for all the “uninsured” that local programs covered before. Yay.

      Don’t forget all of the government spending on Obamacare we’re funding through taxes & borrowing. Think of the millions, maybe billions wasted on non-functioning websites, Bro-surance and Richard Simmons webcast ad campaigns, and lord know what else – someone has to pay for all of that.
