turned a whiter shade of pale

I am constantly hearing negatives about the new and improved 'health care' system. Politicians are unable to agree on anything that would benefit the American people. Most if not ALL politicians have no worries concerning their health care benefits. First with the salaries they bring home they could afford to pay most of their medical services out of pocket. And for sure their health benefits are right up there next to the gold package. I do not know this for a fact but from what I have observed their benefits and perks out way a normal working individual.

The use of planes to fly on personal business or vacations. The police protection that follows the lieutenant Governor of Florida around all the time. And on and on it goes.

There are so many Americans that are not insured or are under insured - they are forgotten. I have health insurance but still co-pays and prescriptions dry me out. I am thankful for my medical insurance - without that coverage I would be destitute.

Why can't we all just get along and do what is right for the people - ALL the people. Why can't the politicians work as a team? What are our true goals?

A Whiter Shade of Pale
Brooker / Fisher / Reid

We skipped the light fandango
turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
but the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
as the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
the waiter brought a tray
And so it was that later
as the miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly,
turned a whiter shade of pale
She said, 'There is no reason
and the truth is plain to see.
'But I wandered through my playing cards
and would not let her be
one of sixteen vestal virgins
who were leaving for the coast
and although my eyes were open
they might have just as well've been closed
She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,
'though in truth we were at sea
so I took her by the looking glass
and forced her to agree
saying, 'You must be the mermaid
who took Neptune for a ride.
'But she smiled at me so sadly
that my anger straightway died
If music be the food of love
then laughter is its queen
and likewise if behind is in front
then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
and attacked the ocean bed
