Flipping back and forth between Tiger's latest confessions, Desperate Housewives, and the historic/catastrophic - depends on one's weltanschauung - House vote on Obamacare into late last night, I found myself forgetting which was which on so many occasions because it's hard to distinguish liars from each other.
If nobody seems to be tellin' the truth, it's hard to determine if anybody's tellin' the truth.
Their message seems the same even if they don't say it this way: "You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time. Not bad odds!"
I don't know whether last night marked the genesis of Acts 2:44-45 America or the epiphany of a neo-Marxist in Uncle Sam's clothing.
I don't know because I haven't read the whole blessed/damned - depends on one's weltanschaunng - thing.
Knowing most of the folks who advocated and voted on it hadn't read it either, I don't feel too badly; but I'm haunted by General Patton's warning: "If people tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results."
America appears to have become a sad SNL skit with total jackasses (What me worry?) and pachyderms (We hate to see anything happen for the first time!) polluting Congressional halls.
Am I the only one who wonders what the heaven is not going on in D.C. when all of the Democrats vote one way and all of the Republicans vote one way and both parties seem to be goose-stepping to their den leaders?
Again, Patton: "If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking."
Much to the chagrin of church members on the right, I pray almost every Sunday for PBHO to succeed after the example of Jesus as explained in Holy Scripture.
Much to the chagrin of church members on the left, I pray almost every Sunday for PBHO to succeed after the example of Jesus as explained in Holy Scripture.
Therein lies the rub.
Nobody knows for sure whether his heart/mind/soul not to mention body belong to America not to mention Jesus by spiritual/actual birth.
While even the dimmest witted capitalists know insurance companies have been coupling with some of America's greediest to make statism so much more and more and more appealing as more and more and more people lose jobs, savings, homes, hope, and everything else related to the American dream while those fools in D.C. voted on a sixth of the national budget without reading the corpus of what they voted on, it's hard to avoid the feeling that PBHO is emerging as some kinda big brother who has a stranglehold on his party and knows better than anyone else in the other party and the clear majority of Americans who have consistently given thumbs down to what has now become law (All polling from left, right, up, and down confirm the majority of Americans disdaining what passed by only a vote of 219-212! Such a decisive victory for the most important legislation in decades!? Help us, Jesus!).
Make no mistake about it.
Last night's vote was all about BBPBHO: "This is what change looks like...Doggone it, this is exactly why I came here."
The buying of votes and backroom deals and buy-outs and sell-outs have been despicable with the most ludicrous/outrageous/deceptive being the last minute lies to get Sssssshtupid and his pro-life bloc to forgo adding stricter anti-abortion language to the bill in favor of an executive order to affirm old laws that will have no prerogative over this just passed bill as acknowledged by Constitutional experts from left and right despite the assurances of the most pro-abortion-late-term-exterminator President in US history.
Does anybody with half an ounce of intelligence really believe BBPBHO would risk the support of his pro-abortion constituency so vital to the efficacy of his agenda that seems more and more and more neo-Marxist by intent/incarnation if not oratory?
Hey! Hey! Hey!
It's O.K. to admit that's what you want.
Some people are willing to forfeit their freedoms to be cradled in the arms of the state like a newborn declaring its dependence upon the milk-maker.
Just be honest about it.
He was elected by the majority of Americans; which, I guess, means Americans want what they're getting or, uh, he's giving or, uh, whatever...
Now go back to the first Patton vote.
BBPBHO was absolutely right in the hours before the vote as he pounded that lectern and pointed fingers and waxed so eloquently about this being a vote for the ages as he warned his lemmings, uh, I mean followers, uh, I mean party not to vote on the wrong side of history.
Time will tell.
Maybe it's time to move to statism.
Capitalism has had a good run; and God knows you know I know we know greedy capitalists have brought this upon themselves.
But there's that nagging question: "Do we really want to throw the baby out with the bath?"
Do we really think it's time for this kinda change in America?
I don't know.
BBPBHO is right on time telling the tale.
If he's wrong about what just happened, I'm wondering if there will be enough time to...
Again, I have not read the economic sucker and I pray my discernments are wrong; but I do have a few questions that the sycophants don't want to ask.
If BBPBHO is such a non-partisan-bridge-building reconciler, why is our country more divided than ever before over this and just about everything else coming out of the Oval Office?
Is it racism?
Is it sour grapes?
Is it the fear of our first truly secular President's disguised but increasingly discerned neo-Marxist agenda?
If the current administration's own chief actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services disclosed on the Saturday before the vote on Sunday that they had not yet completed a complete cost analysis of the bill's impact upon our economy "due to the complexity of the legislation," what was the rush?
What does BBPBHO mean when he says this is just the "beginning" of change in America?
Do you feel comfortable with the expansion of IRS powers within this new legislation: confiscation of tax refunds and fines while determining if taxpayers' health insurance coverage is "acceptable"?
When has a freedom removed been restored; such as the freedom to be or not to be insured?
If government can take over this part of your life, what makes you think they won't go after that part of your life?
Do you really trust our government with your life?
Do you really think those jackasses and pachyderms know what they're doing?
Why in anybody's name would we want to model our health care or anything else after...?
Call me suspicious, cynical, sarcastic, or Shakespearean, but something's rotten in the state of...
Don't get me wrong; and if you have been reading more KDs than just this one, I know God knows you know I'm one of those Matthew 25 and Acts 2:44-45 Christians who are compelled by Jesus to say health care should be available to anyone on the planet who needs it.
I'm convinced our continuing penchant for policing countries that don't really want us, uh, policing them is too costly as well as possibly immoral.
We like American democracy - Oops! Change that to we liked American democracy! - but lots of countries don't and what makes us think we have the right to impose...?
Why not save all of that $ and put it into health care, education, and other positively ennobling and enabling things?
As far as those Islamic terrorists go, just seal the borders, spend more $ on intelligence with a green light to pick 'em off when their diaper-heads pop up from their pits like zits on an 8th grader, and take Mayor Koch's cue and use our best conventional methods if they won't stop in the same way that Truman ended WWII or as Reagan threatened to do in out-spending the Soviets into submission.
I don't want to close the book on American democracy just yet; especially when where we seem to be headed hasn't worked for anyone else.
Well, I've got good news for apostates, socialists, and other brain-dead relatives.
KD is shutting down for a few weeks as Kathie goes on vacation and I, uh, don't.
In the meantime, if you know anybody who wants to buy a baseball signed by the late and very great Yankee Jim "Catfish" Hunter or the entire roster of the 1985 Kansas City Royals World Series champs, let me know. I'll accept any bid that makes a dent in the plastic. Actually, I'll trade both of 'em straight up for a 2009 Road King. O.K., I'll settle for a 2008. O.K., 2007. But that's my last offer!
Unlike what's been coming out of socialists in D.C. and apostates in mainline denominations, that's the truth.
Blessings and Love!
