Your Rich Uncle is Senile

That rich uncle, the one who promised you health care, a cheap house and free college?  He's not really rich.  He's senile. 

The adults knew it all along and just smiled when he promised all those things.  But the kids, the ones who still believe in the tooth fairy and man's ability to control the world's temperature, bought it hook line and sinker...

Haha... I have a family member like that. He's all promises and no substance, and I get tired of watching everybody fall for it and then end up more screwed in the long run for having changed their plans based upon his promises.

Good Sowell article!! Great post!!!

Obama, Pelosi and Reid meet the great confabulators!

How this nation has fallen.

Curious, was looking at an MSNBC poll (not the stanchion of conservative thought) and saw the following response on the passage of the bill:

26.1% of respondents were "excited"

6.4% don't know

and...66.6% were angry that it passed.

So much for representative gov't.

Wow! An MSNBC poll?

Now it is all over except for the crying

It's never over. I refuse to believe that. If it's over here, it's over everywhere.

I hope you are right. When I woke up Monday morning and learned that the bill passed, a terrible feeling of dread and hopelessness came over me (I'm sure you could tell from my long-winded, panicky comments yesterday).

This was the one thing. This health care reform was what I feared the most since Obama's election. It is so personal for me because I see the limitations of mainstream medicine and therefore choose to use alternative methods. Now my freedom of choice is gone.

I thought we were in the clear with Scott Brown. I thought, "The people have spoken" but I was wrong and hopelessness ensued.

Leticia, right you are, "How this nation has fallen."
