How do you deal with a group of elected officials who don’t care about what the people who elected them think or want? What is more, how do you deal with a group of men and women who are advocating things that go contrary to the Constitution and to the human decency?
The Pink Flamingo keeps asking the same question to the point where she is starting to sound like a broken record.
Why are they willing to inflict something like this on us?
There is no logical, rational or reasonable reason why Democrats would even begin to push through a bill the Average American does not want – unless they read the following WSJ – NBC poll:
“Do you generally approve or disapprove of the way that Republicans in Congress are handling the issue of health care reform?
Is this what they are reading, or is something else going on here?
Do they care?
Are they on an unprecedented quest for power?
Are they drunk with power?
Are they abjectly corrupt?
Is something else going on?
Are they that corrupt?
Do they even care?
Are some of them being blackmailed?
Is Obama threatening them?
Is the 2010 election fix already in, and they know they will win – again?
JimTowey has a WSJ piece about a booklet about the “end of life” and how George W. Bush killed the end of life book. Obama has resuscitated it.
“…Last year, bureaucrats at the VA’s National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, “Your Life, Your Choices.” It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA’s preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated “Your Life, Your Choices.”…I was not surprised to learn that the VA panel of experts that sought to update “Your Life, Your Choices” between 2007-2008 did not include any representatives of faith groups or disability rights advocates. And as you might guess, only one organization was listed in the new version as a resource on advance directives: the Hemlock Society (now euphemistically known as “Compassion and Choices”)….”
Unfortunately, I think Ann Coulter gets it right. These people are indeed, “Godless”. They appear to me as if they’ve sold their eternal souls, like Faust, for some horrific bargain to have power – absolute power – over life and death.
What gives people like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and their gang of murderous minions the right to think they have the power of life and death over the American people? Nat Hentoff writes in the Jewish World Review:
“…Condemning the furor at town-hall meetings around the country as “un-American,” Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are blind to truly participatory democracy — as many individual Americans believe they are fighting, quite literally, for their lives….”
They want to give the right to community organizations like ACORN (?) to determine how much we should weigh, smoke, drink, and what we should eat.
So now the Dems plan to “go it alone” and force this bill through the House.
We’ve all been following the story for weeks now. There is only one logical explanation to an irrational and an illogical situation. We are dealing with pure, unadulterated evil – pure and abject evil. There is no other answer for a group of men and women who are determined to destroy their own careers by ignoring THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE, and plan to go ahead and pass a bill the American People clearly do not want.
Are they like lemmings, racing over a cliff? Maybe there is something buried deep inside these people that is determining they should dive over a cliff and commit political suicide.
I keep going back to pure unadulterated abject evil.
There is no other logical explanation.
Something evil this way has come. We’re living in a nation taken over by the very worst of a Stephen King nightmare monster. I advocate the wearing of crosses, wreaths of garlic, and board up the windows and doors. There is no way to stop them.
Seriously, there is no other explanation other than a pall of evil.
Or – Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and their merry band of followers are so completely arrogant that their absolute power has corrupted absolutely – and they are so absolutely corrupt that they just don’t give a damn about what they do to We The People as long as they stay in power. They cannot imagine We The Stupid People would ever vote them out of office.
Maybe we are that stupid and will not vote them out of office.
But – like one of the Great American Philosophers once said,
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
Nah, they own’t believe that one. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican – a fool. Then again, maybe he could be right.
I hope and pray he is right – and that’s the rub. I am a Christian. I believe in the sanctity of life. I am also a Trekkie. I believe there are aways possibilities. I want a future where we live for a couple hundred years, and seek out new worlds and new civilizations and boldly go where no one has gone before. With Democrats in charge, we’re going to lose our space program and our lives.
Yep, prayer is need – prayer for their souls.
