"What is it, Shasta?" Candi asked as she came running.
"I have a tick on my eyelid. Help me get it off."
Candi immediately got the alcohol and a pair of tweezers. This is NOT one of her favorite things, so I sat patiently while she cringed and gagged through the entire process. Then it struck me how like a tick government is. If you don't take care of it right away, it'll suck every ounce of blood it can and swell to unbelievable dimensions. That is what is happening in our government today.
When Obama was elected in 2008, Nancy Pelosi decided she could drain the blood out of taxpayers whether they liked it or not and government began to swell. Remember "You have to pass it to find out what's in it?" Just like a tick, Nancy latched on to healthcare and made it so big we couldn't see anymore. We know we have to stop this. America needs to get out the alcohol and tweezers, remove the parasite, cleanse the wound to prevent any infections and pre-treat the animal against future parasites. In a way, America did just that with the mid-term elections in 2010, we just didn't get the head of the parasite so the infection is still present. We can't pre-treat until we cleanse, and I have to think that at this point...we're going to need a lot of alcohol to cleanse the wound.
C'mon America. Get out the biggest bottle of disinfectant you have and let's clean up the infection that is the Washington, D.C. establishment. It's time we get rid of the parasites, give the dog a good bath, and pre-treat against future parasites!
