My darling bride wanted to watch the Tournament of Roses parade . . .

. . . but I had to get up and leave the television in disgust. Not only is there supposed to be a same-sex “marriage” being performed on a parade float,1 but there is a health insurance company (which I decline to name, to avoid giving them any additional publicity, little though it might be) advertising policies on their individual exchange, with a (supposed) waitress telling us that she didn’t have insurance through her (supposedly) low-paying job, but yes, she was able to get a health insurance plan, for her family, and, thanks to financial assistance,2 her health insurance costs her less than a dollar a day.

Well, given that the average employer-based health insurance policy costs $16,351 per year,3 that means that the “waitress” is being subsidized something on the order of $16,000 a year, from my taxes!

Every one of us who works for a living and has to pay taxes is having to contribute money to this (fictitious) waitress’ health insurance plan. Can you see why I am so disgusted?

  2. The commercial does not specifically say government financial assistance, but that’s what it means.
  3. The Kaiser Family Foundation stated that, in 2013, the average cost of employer-provided health insurance was $16,351, of which the employer’s share was $11,786, and the employee’s share was $4,565.

  1. I heard they were to have a gay queer homosensual marriage of one and half CA guys and said I’m not having that rammed down my throat or shoved up my Duck Commander’s description of it.

  2. So let me get this straight. Abusing education , the TV “news” programs, Hollywood, newspapers, magazines, sit-coms and commercials isn’t enough for the left wing propagandists, now they have to fuck up a damn parade? Are these animals so fearful the truth will come out they absolutely must propagandize every aspect of cultural life? What’s next, door hangers and lawn signs?

  3. There’s a very interesting piece at The Lonely Conservative about crony capitalism and the light bulb. I suggest Perry and the rest of the mind -numbed minions take a read and try to figure out how they’re being manipulated by a certified liar.

    The environment my Irish ass, it’s all about the green.

  4. I got to thinking. Gay “Marriage” won’t truly become acceptable to normal people until Disney does an animated movie featuring a “Romance” between two homoes and it becomes a popular and critical success. Which, I suspect, will be never. Even 5 year old girls (the target audience for Disney princess movies) know that the prince is supposed to marry the princess, not another prince (or his horse).
