"The Wall Street Journal" Ping List,
Somebody down here, too.
Glad someone doesn’t like it:o) We can’t let up. I would’nt mind being on this ping list:o)
But somebody waaaaay down there likes it.
If Pelosi had the votes she would have called a vote already instead of talking about having the votes.
Poor little Nancy Nurse and Doctor Harry.
Fascist Care going bye bye?
It will be a good thing to go. It is a continual sickening sight to see “conservatives” go bonkers when Obama does his “insurance company bashing” performance which is completely insincere and opposite to what he is doing for the same companies. Especially embarrassing because one can go to any variety of lefty sites to see they have a clearer idea of what Obamacare is and what Obama really means.
Sites like Nat. Review are so deluded, I think when they contemplate what the bill really is, they have crises of consciences because it sounds good to them, the fascist transfer of wealth to large corporations on the guise of social welfare...that’s what “compassionate conservatism” is! It must be good! But it is Obama doing it, so they create fantasies about “socialism”.
On the bright side, Pelosi’s treads are wearing down.
Someone from the 18th century didn’t like it either.
From: Thomas Jefferson’s Notes on Virgina: Q XVII
Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now. Thus in France the emetic was once forbidden as a medicine, and the potatoe as an article of food. Government is just as infallible too when it fixes systems in physics. Galileo was sent to the inquisition for affirming that the earth was a sphere: the government had declared it to be as flat as a trencher, and Galileo was obliged to abjure his error. This error however at length prevailed, the earth became a globe, and Descartes declared it was whirled round its axis by a vorteo.
The government in which he lived was wise enough to see that this was no question of civil jurisdiction, or we should all have been involved by authority in vortices. In fact, the vortices have been exploded, and the Newtonian principle of gravitation is now more firmly established, on the basis of reason, than it would be were the government to step in, and to make it an article of necessary faith. Reason and experiment have been indulged, and error has fled before them.
It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself. Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men; men governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons. And why subject it to coercion? To produce uniformity. But is uniformity of opinion desireable? No more than of face and stature. Introduce the bed of Procrustes then, and as there is danger that the large men may beat the small, make us all of a size, by lopping the former and stretching the latter.
But is the spirit of the people an infallible, a permanent reliance? Is it government? Is this the kind of protection we receive in return for the rights we give up? Besides, the spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may commence persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated, that the time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are honest, and ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will remain on us long, will be made heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.
We The People are big-time pissed and will be expressing that in November. Pelosi et al. can take that to their empty Bank.
Hell, somebody down HERE doesn’t like it.
His initials are JC....and he’s not very fond of marxist socialist totalitarianism.
Fingers crossed and prayers up!!!
Nancy and Harry are just common slaves on the plantation where mac daddy is the straw boss who gets his orders from those he sold his soul to to become the phony figurehead POTUS.
I had read otherwise.
Sure hope Fund is right about this.
