Watching the aftermath of ObamaCare's passage leaves me wondering which is worse, watching liberals take their hobbling victory lap on this issue, or having to endure the idiocy of their suggesting that conservatives stop acting like sore losers and "get back to work."
Even Obama is taunting the the repeal hungry GOP to "go for it" with the wind at their backs of the 55% of us that wanted this thing repealed before the ballpoint pen used to sign the it was even invented.
I wonder if he'll be so smug when similar polls show his chances of reelection as being so optimistic. Its hard to believe that a newly minted president could screw up so much, so fast, and so badly after just a year.
And when he says this is the "people's victory," I'm left wondering what he qualifies as a person? Liberals? They're really the only ones happy with this, and I thought we agreed a long time ago they don't count because they're actually from another planet.
Also, this notion that the GOP needs to "move on" is an amazing statement coming from the party that is still counting chads in Florida 10 years later.
What if the anti-prohibition movement "moved on" after alcohol became illegal under the U.S. Constitution in the 1920's? I don't know answer, but I'm pretty sure we know what Ted Kennedy's life's work would've ended up being about.Add a comment

I already had this in a previous blog post, but I really like it and wanted to share again, because when ObamaCare bankrupts the country there wont be any room for "I told you so," as we'll be crammed up to our ears in debt...
As a result the only way we'll be able to reduce the cost of ObamaCare is to reduce our use of it. A great way to reduce the use is to force people to live healthier lifestyles.....and 'Lil TeaBagger is ready to lead the way on that front!

I can't imagine it going down any other way...
Unlike the experience of liberals hearing the name Barack Obama for first time, I don't remember the exact day or time I knew for a fact that God exists, but I remember how I got to that point.
Before that moment I was very liberal on the matter of religion and morality in general. I thought that all religions in general could and did bring about positive influence in the lives of people. I also thought that as long as you are a good person you were bound for whatever heaven was supposed to be. Whatever good meant to me back then I'll never be able to actually tell you, but it was probably as ambiguous as the meaning of "pro-life" is to a Democrat.
It was 2004, I was in college, it was my final year before entering the "real" world. I was heavily involved with my school's College Republican chapter and I wrote op ed's for the school paper (as far as I knew I was literally the lone conservative voice in the entire campus media, and it was at one of the largest universities in my state).
One night I was driving in my car and I started thinking about of my efforts in being a part of the fight for the Republican party. The Democrats were having their primaries and I was wondering if we could succeed in getting President Bush reelected, which then lead me to start thinking about how electoral fortunes come and go for both parties.
Then......like a woman who watches The View to gain IQ points...what should have been so obvious to begin with dawned on me.....
Nothing we do can last forever. The results of elections have shelf lives, and with little exception the legacy of campaigns don't tend to last after they've been gone for a generation or so.
Then I started to realize the same was true of life in general, more precisely this life.
When we die we live on in the people who knew us directly, after this we usually become a distant memory to the people who knew them, beyond that any influence we held in this life is all but forgotten.
I couldn't help but think what the point of it all was if nothing we do lives very far beyond our time on Earth. I realized at that point that we aren't living for this life. We are working toward the next life, our real and eternal life.
To make a long story short, I not only realized that without question God exists, but over the last few years I began to really understand that we are made for His glory.
What happened on that Sunday night, March 21, 2010 is a shining example of all of this. The work of Ronald Reagan and his legacy came to a close. It is very depressing.
Remembering the fact that God, not man, is in control of all things is quite literally the only thing that helps me cope with nights like this, which as The Drudge Report put it, is "a day that will live in INFIRMARY."
We also need to accept this defeat as something that must happen in accordance with His plan. I prayed as millions have prayed that this wouldn't pass. He didn't answer that prayer and while I don't like it I know there is a reason.
Just because He didn't intercede now doesn't mean he wont later. Its entirely possible that this defeat is meant to strengthen our resolve to fight even harder to preserve this Christian nation and take the principals that ushered in the Reagan Revolution to establish a new legacy, one that God-fearing leaders like Reagan could be proud of.
Millions acted against Obamacare in the form of protests, now its time to take action against the ENTIRE government we currently have by acting in the form of organizing, donating, calling, knocking on doors, and most of all using the new media to beat back this president and his lapdogs in congress at their own game.
I know I'm in.
Throughout all of this we need leaders worthy and willing to serve Him above their lust for a place of power in this country to emerge. We the people will need to support them when they are right, and check them when they are wrong.
In doing all of this we MUST continue to pray to God that He will be the wind at our backs...its the only way we will find success in any of this.
I didn't see any fat ladies singing in Congress during that vote...did you?Add a comment
We are at what is probably the most significant of crossroads this country has seen in my lifetime. No matter what happens the Democrats face a can of whoop-ass in November. Either health care fails and Republicans make significant gains, or it passes and Obama gets to spend the remainder of his only term in office dealing with a Republican Congress.
BUT....no matter what happens remember this.....the really bad news is Joe Biden will still be the Vice President.
From "gator aide" and the "cornhusker kickback" to ousting congressman Eric Massa, the brazen, in broad daylight, deal making, arm twisting and flat-out bribery taking place by President Obama (for example as if you needed another) should be a national scandal.
Well, GQ and Rielle Hunter apparently don't make the scandal cut so why should this?
Really though happened to the smoke-filled back room deals done in secret?
..............HELLO!?! Is this mic on?
ROOMS...filled with SMOKE....wouldn't you think THAT would put Obama in his element to make deals?
Its almost as if our president is really just some bad James Bond villain who just can help himself but to tell us the details his evil master plan. It really is too bad the GOP is less like 007 and more like Inspector Clouseau.
Obama may be crazy but he's right when he asks where the Republicans have been on this issue. In the 12 years they had power they could have prevented this fight by pushing reforms in the marketplace...instead the system spiraled out of control and now we have a political party using the chaos as an excuse to make the biggest grab for power maybe ever.
The fact that the GOP wins because the measure is so unpopular has more to do with dumb luck than some sort of ideological or political victory...I'll take it where I can get it, but this is not a proper foundation for the successful comeback of a political party.
The worst part about it all is that as of this writing health care "deform" may happen without an actual vote taking place. If this "deem and pass" trick Pelosi is trying to pull was even a slightly more legitimate move than John Edwards's and Rielle Hunter's kid then why spend all this time hunting for votes and talking about having them (which they clearly don't have if they need to resort to this).
I know I've said it before and its worth repeating...for eight years this country endured the most ridiculous of notions that George W. Bush wanted to establish himself as dictator-in-chief after some catastrophe he created so he could impose martial law before the '08 election and not have to step aside.
This line of thinking is known as being "intellectual" in social circles that include that guy from "I am Sam" trying to act like some normal dude named Sean Penn when he's not on the set of some crappy Oscar nominated movie that nobody watches. These are the types of people in charge right now!
The point of all this being...what a difference just under two years makes! The left's cries of a Bush dictatorship were not for concern over the country, they were made out of jealousy.
If liberals enjoyed this level of support for opposition to the Iraq war, both in public opinion and Congress, they would've declared the execution of the war the death of American democracy. So lets not pretend this BS is the voice of the people being heard. If everything in Washington DC continues at this rate and Obama is reelected in 2012 someone better find out who got Iran's Ahmadinejad to advise him on how to pull it off.Add a comment
