      Listen to ME, you disgusting, wise-ass sociopathic wacko-fuckin-loon. I worked my fingers to the goddamned BONE, day in and day out for my two sons and my late wife. I worked a good steady union job with a pension. You know what that  word means, you self-deluded, arrogant, detached anatomically incorrect fucking android? Work? Union? Job?

         Yeah, so I work all those years, raising kids, puttin 'em through college, making sure I was there to support them. Then I find out why I've been coughing up blood for a week.

          Not cancer.

          COPD.

           So now I can't work anymore.

          Do you know what that's like at fifty-fucking-four? The only reason I made it through to my SSDI--sorry governor that means "social security disability INSURANCE--was because that damned socialist union stuck by me every.step.of.the.way.

           Helped me get on my long term policy. This gave me two years to navigate the SSDI system.

            So am I now a "victim?"

            Fuck you, Governor Romney. You ain't fucking tellin ME what I am, you arrogant asshat of a jackass!

             I ain't a victim.

             I'm a lucky man.

             I have two great boys.

             A beautiful grandbaby.

             A government structure to lean on and help ease my stress.

              I'm not lazy.

              I ain't freeloadin!

              I'm gettin a little somethin back for my long-term, thirty-five-year contribution to a program that now is helping to save my life.

              What about that don't you get?

               Goddamn prick.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
