The Chief Fiddler speaks and acts without experience to support the veracity of his words. He speaks and acts without ever considering the consequences. Like an adolescent. Like a teenager I wouldn’t trust with the keys to my car. Let alone the keys to our future and that of our children. He has shown reckless abandon for the truth. Joe Wilson was absolutely right when he shouted out in the dignified auditorium of the Joint Session: “You lie.” The one desecrating the great office was not Joe Wilson.
If we conclude that the donations from the health care industry to Mr. Obama were not gifts, but bribes, then we are a banana republic. And if we are, then perhaps we had better rename the nation, something other than the United States of America, which implies a certain amount of ethical conduct, a willingness on the part of the inhabitants to be united, and not subjugated by a greedy despot. (I know, we had that for eight years. But we voted him out, or at least I think we did.) So, anyway, if we do need to change our name to fit the status of banana republic, perhaps we could call our nation Columbia, an historically adequate name if a little close to the name of an existing banana republic. Or maybe Christophoraguay.or Vespucciana.or Hudsonia.
By 2009, PROFIT and POLITICS had become more important than People. Who really cares about the health of a nation when people take a back seat to politics and profit?
If we are indeed a banana republic, then a company (or a person for that matter) can arrive laden with coins, bestow them on someone hungry for coins, and the donor can then expect to have his will be done by the recipient of those coins. In short, if we are a banana republic, then the money filling political coffers is not donations, it is bribes. In such a system, if Mr. Obama took their money, he owes them. Are we a banana republic? Does he “owe” his donors? Is it tit for tat in American politics after all?
Some employers chose not to cover Mileptrx as a part of their prescription drug plan. Because it is a separate class of drug, the employer who sponsors employees’ health insurance may opt out of coverage for religious or social reasons.
The best proof that health care reform is a political act and not economic reform is the failure of its proponents to respond to legitimate economic criticisms.
The Health care Bill requires every American to be covered by health care. Whether or not this is constitutional is being debated even now. There will be a penalty to be paid if someone does not get health care. However, if that penalty is substantially lower than the health care insurance itself, what is to stop people from refusing? Paying the penalty? Getting health care anyway when they get sick? That’s something no one considered when mandating that everyone have this coverage.
Some wondered after it was revealed that almost every terrorist who attacked the united states on 9-11 was from an oil exporting country why the us did not move heaven and earth to get off of foreign oil. Why did we insist on paying terrorists to kill us? Why did we become more slavish to foreigners and their oil? Why did we keep sending trillions of dollars out of the country?
