Regardless of your position on same-sex marriage, Obama’s decision earlier this week on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is …
While not a solution to the run-up of costs, certainly a move to ensure that we don’t continue to escalate our wartime health costs in Afghanistan and Iraq would be to simply do as the Liberals suggest and pull all the troops out of the Middle East as quickly as possible. Once complete, we simply return with a few long-range bombers and nuke the place until the entire region glows like Chernobyl. In the process we could exclaim to the world that we’re simply reducing our stockpile of nuclear weapons.
In the grand scheme of things, the Central Valley of California has benefitted over the past year or so in an ironic sort of way with respect to water and politics. Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have highlighted the water issues impacting California’s Central Valley, and our own Congressman here in the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has been eager to give voice to a region of the United States that is disappointingly ignored in both the state and US capitol buildings.
This morning’s health care signing party was bad enough except I had to listen to a rabid liberal in town praise the benefits of this plan (all of which are as real as the tooth fairy); not only that, but he went on to recite over and over how this was an historic event in America as if we’d just defeated a foreign country in war and forced the unconditional surrender signing ceremony be held in the Oval Office. The only thing defeated today was the American economy by the tyrant-in-chief!

The labor unions too have participated in this as it’s been no secret in America the cozy relationship between the unions and political leaders in Washington DC.
For all the alleged gridlock that they claim has prevented them from completely destroying America they frankly needed none of those Republican representatives to achieve any of their goals. They could have passed the health care bill last year and Obama would have signed it. The Republicans in the House and Senate were impotent to stop them. The Democrats certainly didn’t need the votes: they had them all along.
So why is it that government is trying to force taxpayers to foot the healthcare bill for everyone when public education is supposed to be the pathway to success and the ability to afford your own healthcare?
So what about connecting the dots in the health care debate? Isn’t that relevant and prudent BEFORE we jump head-first into a plan that will cost this nation over a trillion dollars to implement and very likely lead to the economic collapse of the United States?
Socialism is never an all-at-once proposition, but comes in like the fog; before you know it, it’s enveloped you and you can’t see your way out of it.
