While I struggled to watch the nearly three minute video I’m providing below, due to the guest on the show, perhaps there is an irony to this tale. Michelle Obama appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and told him that young people really needed Obamacare because they are “knuckleheads.”
“A lot of young people think they’re invincible, but the truth is young people are knuckleheads,” she said. Then she indicated that they often cut themselves while cooking or injure themselves by dancing on bar stools.
Of course, Fallon, being the jokester he is, mocked Obama’s claims that he would never engage in those things, which drew a bit of laughter form the audience. Fallon is 39 by the way.
I’ve cut my fingers many times in my life. Some cuts have been pretty serious, but I’ve never needed to use health insurance to cover such a cut. Back in my younger days, I’m pretty sure I didn’t dance on a bar stool, but I have been thrown off a porch at a party and had various other encounters in which I was injured, but never needed to have insurance cover those things.
Ironically, it seem that Obama wanted to claim a victory for the fact that kids can be on their parents’ policy until they are 26. Seriously, at the age of 26 I was getting ready to be married. Several of my friends already were. I had a house, a car, motorcycle, and small business. However, this gets to my point.
We are raising a generation of perpetual adolescents in this country. In most cases, they simply become professional students. While there is nothing wrong with learning, there needs to be real world experience. During this time, many young people continue to live with parents. Many put off marriage until they are nearly 30, and even then they don’t want the responsibility of children to deal with.
Granted, not all young people do this. Many work hard, some are students and some do both and they grow as a result. Ms. Christine Rousselle from Townhall seems to be one of these mature young people.
The claims of Mrs. Obama are indeed a slap in the face to the young people in America. She thinks they need her and her husband and their enormous big government legislation, which robs other Americans of wealth, in order for them to have health insurance, because after all they aren’t capable of handling a knife while cooking or controlling their desire to get wasted and dance on a bar stool like a fool.
Oh wait, I do recall people that are in bed with Obama and Obamacare actually promoting such behavior. Remember these?
Now how old do you think the two women are in that last picture? From the looks of it, my guess would be over 26. I’m also guessing it’s pretty dangerous (and I add stupid) leaning off that big bouncy ball with your face directly over a fragile glass of wine. I mean one slip and… oh wait, that’s why Obama wants you on a welfare program. What? You didn’t know Obamacare is welfare? What else do you call a government subsidy? It’s welfare.
“Now young people can get insurance for as little as $50 a month, less than the cost of gym shoes,” Michelle Obama explained to Fallon.
Do you know why it is only $50 a month? Because someone else is being forced to pay for your coverage via government.
Finally young people, the ones that you are praising for this socialist legislation, think you are knuckleheads. Feeling that hope and change yet?
