I broke my freakin' arm saying happy valentines day to a republican.
Yesterday I was talking politics outside the 7-11with a very republican looking guy .He told me he didn't like Obama but was vague as to why. His thinking was liberal but he feared communism and all the sort of shit republicans are told to fear, he bemoaned the taxes,yadda yadda,but he also supported universal health care,gun control and the rich paying their fair share,though he was cynical gun control would help gun violence. He was not rude or defensive about my questions,but he also was jaded about the public.He said he used to be more idealistic in his youth, but believed idealistic people were too few in number to change things in this country in a meaningful way.I explained why he might be very wrong about that,explained a conservative county like this one isn't the best model for the rest of the country and fox news isn't news,and he begrudgingly agreed with me,that the news is skewed and this county is a limited example. We had a good 20 minute conversation,me in my turquoise Mohawk and he in his khakis and short graying hair.He seemed to have given up on many of his old beliefs,and that made me happy inside. I wished him a happy valentine's day. .I turned to head home and tripped in the parking lot over a small raised part of the cement,and bang I hit the ground and my arm got it. I laid there a minute waiting for the pain to subside before I got up,and the republican guy I was talking to and another guy in the parking lot helped me get up and they got me ice and were very kind about helping me up.I walked home and by time I hit the door it was definite I had broken my arm.It fucking' huuurrt.
I went to a patient first type urgent care place,xrays showed the radius was a clean break right through it and they splinted my arm sent me home. Today I go to the doc,probably will be in a cast for who knows how long. I am very thankful for medicaid,and I fear for people who in my situation would not be able to get their arm fixed,and would just muddle through.We really need universal health care. And yesterday a Republican agreed with me on that!
Could it make its posts any more unreadable????
