Breaking News: Confession

"This is what change looks like."  -Barack Obama (03/21/10; 11:47 p.m. ET)



"I want to thank every member of Congress who stood up tonight with courage and conviction to make health care reform a reality.  And I know this wasn't an easy vote for a lot of people."

Not an easy vote?  Whatever on earth might he be referring to?  Surely he's not referring to representatives losing their jobs in the next election, for in the same speech Barack Obama said, "It's a victory for the American people."

Was it a difficult choice for some representatives?  Like, um, maybe they'll lose their jobs because they cast their votes in opposition to the will of the people?  I'm reminded of another difficult choice Barack Obama favors: abortion.  I wish someone would explain to me what is difficult about choosing to have an abortion.  Might it be connected to the innate knowledge that one is having her own child killed? 

This morning, Kathleen Sebelius blathered about small business owners no longer needing to fear they'll lose employees who walk out the door and down the street to work for the employer who has better health insurance coverage to offer.  Too lame for words.  Ms. Sebelius, do you not know the average American is trying, hoping, to keep his job — any job — because no one down the street is hiring?

Pardon me, if I sound a little discombobulated this morning.  The moral compass of this nation is broken.   Some people are receiving the change they (ignorantly or knowingly) voted to acquire in 2008, and they're happy with it.  Unfortunately, the rest of us are going down with them.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!  Isaiah 5:20

Scarier than that "H" word, ain't it? :.(
