I feel like a carnival barker sometimes, or maybe one of those TV pitchmen. I dislike repetition.
Hell of an endeavor for a guy that hates saying the same thing over and over. Still, it has something to be said for those of us who aren’t real quick copies. The Marine Corps has the repetition thing down to a fine art, and they have shown some VERY remarkable results.
It’s CRUNCH TIME, people. The Senate’s Dingy Harry Reid had the Anointed One (who graciously descended from Olympus) come down and harangue the Senators about the dire necessity of taking one for the team. For that is what it shall surely be as the debate on the health care bill, more aptly described as the UNHEALTHY FOR AMERICA bill, winds toward Christmas and the coming New Year, which a number of politicians in both houses have every right to be concerned about.
Aside from the millions of letters, telephone calls, emails and direct visitation to Congress members’ offices, there’s the little matter of EIGHT OR NINE MILLION PINK SLIPS sent to members’ mailboxes by individual concerned voters, telling these linguine-spined politicians that if they vote for that bill, WHICH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CLEARLY DO NOT WANT, we will vote them out of office. We can thank Joseph Farah for that bit of inspired pressure inducement. If you wish to join the pink slip movement, Joseph can be found on World Net Daily.
The Republican minority leadership has the Demarxists ducking, dodging and weaving behind the disclosure that the BENEFICENT Liberals have whacked another FORTY BILLION DOLLARS away from in-home care for SENIORS (“just give them pain pills”, Obama). That was something they’d just as soon American seniors weren’t made aware of. Turn up the heat! Let em’ squirm. These self same politicians are the ones who continuously vote themselves out of legislation with which they saddle the American people, though in all probability HAD NEVER TAKEN THE TROUBLE TO READ!!!
They wonder at the state of near rebellion in this country? They wonder that the popularity of the American Congress ranks right up there with trial lawyers?
There are a couple of Senators that need your gentle tutelage, especially this week or maybe this whole month.
Virginia Democrat Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner are sending signals that they may waffle on this thing and vote for it pretending that it it would somehow benefit the American people. These politicians can rationalize their way around just about anything.
Let’s let these two guys know that we are preparing to rationalize them out of office. While you’re at it, don’t forget to let the other 98 know that we are hot on their tails too. Be they Democrat or Republican, that’s OUR house! That is OUR government and this is OUR country!!
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
