I certainly agree with you that all politicians are full of crap.
Good for your father. I wish it had been the same for mine. But it wasn't. Not even close. Except maybe the third stage black lung part. I've seen his medical records and he has a diagnosis code on them that says he has black lung/coal miner's lung. He and my mother barely make it month to month.
Anyway...good for you. I'm happy for you. But just because it was good for you does not mean it was the same for me and my family or many others living there.
