Now, remember that I have severe brain damage which went into the brain stem when I had meningitis in 1971.
It’s funny whenever a conservative makes his bigoted statement regarding how people with developmental disabilities are incapable of doing anything. Hell, if I were face to face with Cresent Hardy (R-Nevada), I would play one of my guitar parts for him and then bash him straight in the mouth with my Fender Stratocaster. I mean, just look at this.
No, people with disabilities aren’t a drain on society-unless they put on an American uniform and drove over a bomb, because they thought they were bad-assed. The worst thing about that is that those bozos want people like me to shell out more money to pay for their treatments.
Hey, they didn’t get sick. They didn’t have an accident. They believed a liar and they made an appointment with an Improvised Explosive Device.
That’s on them.
Innocent children who had no choice with regard to the water their mothers were forced to drink should not be punished for an act which they had no control over-the moment they were born.
I’m not writing a single negative thing about children who have disabilities. I’m loaded with them. I am stating that a soldier who questions my patriotism, plays a game of Bad Ass and comes back here in pieces should pay for his own problems-just like everyone else in this society.
He’s not a World War II hero and he didn’t go to Korea. He is a fool who paid the price for believing a Republican.
As for Cresent Hardy, here is what he said as reported Jen Hayden of Raw Story on June 11, 2015, as it appeared in Daily Kos:
“I have three children,” Hardy explains. “One of them is summa cum laude and two were magnum cum laude. The other one, he didn’t need an education. He works for Raytheon, smarter than all the rest. He works hard, he builds things that are genius. Some people have that ability.”
“But they all work hard. They are raising their own families,” he continued. “They will not be a drain on society, the best they can. Hopefully they will never have some disability that causes them to have to utilize that.”
Remember that this is a piece of garbage who represents the political party which states all life is sacred and that abortion is murder.
Well, one who refuses to follow 1 John 3:17 is guilty of murder by proxy.
1 John 3:17 17If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
So, to recap, an American soldier who was stupid enough to vote Republican and go off to the quagmire, where he acquires a traumatic brain injury and loses function in one of his legs, wins the lottery, but someone who is developmentally disabled is a drain on society, as per the Republican point-of-view-all of this while the Republican Party wants to shove God down our throats.
What a strange world we live in.
As for Crescent Hardy, he lost re-election last November by double-digits. Do you think what he said about people like us had anything to do with that?
