Last December, during the height of the still contencious healthcare reform debate, and it’s subsequent passing, Speaker of the house Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D) from the San Francisco district, ( any shock there? ), classified the pending overtaking of healthcare as a “Christmas Gift” to all Americans.
This is true Lafayette!, If you look at it from the perspective of any parent, who knows that it is “You” who pays for all of the Christmas gifts in your home. The cost of this “gift” like all others,will come out of your pockets as well.
It is now May of the following year, and we are still only just “beginning” to fully realize the rips and tears of poor quality and shoddy workmanship associated with last years “gift”, in the form of misrepresentations, shortages of doctors willing to associate with Medicare and Medicaid, and new taxes, or can you say “revenues?”, amongst others. ( It’s gonna be like Christmas every day of the year! )
With the recent election defeats and apparent incumbent-cide being effected by the voting public, and the ever growing deep dark fear for their own positions of power, the Administration, Congress and many of their agencies are postponing and delaying until December a multitude of reports, decisions and legislative actions that they fear will be the bag of nails needed by the engaged American voter to hammer closed the coffins of their careers, agendas and this all too corrupt processes.
A report from President Obama’s VAT-happy commission on the economy is due not “as soon as possible”, but in December instead! (Hmmm?)
As is the Federal Budget and all of it’s pork spending, new regulatory, deficit busting glory.! ( Odd… Doth we see a trend forming? )
There is an eerie feeling growing amongst Americans that we are being set up for a huge fall. We look to MT. Barrack-atoa and ecognize the progressive magma quickly surfacing as the first rumblings of eruption are felt across the land. The coming wave of hot rolling ash and fire, the pyroclastic flow, is nearing the summit and prepared to begin it’s speedy descent down upon the population as a whole. ( This will make Pompeii seem like a campfire gone astray. )
What the citizens of Lafayette, Louisiana as a whole, and indeed the Nation must understand is that all of these delayed actions, will occur, if we are blinded for a moment, asleep for a second or absent for a day when November comes. They count on you being overwhelmed and under-informed in order to maintain their grip on power and continue to force their agenda down the throats of a “mis-represented” electorate.
Fortunately, this is not a Christmas Gift without a receipt!. We can still refuse delivery! While we may not be able to press their hands now, and force them to show their cards by actually doing what they want to do to us later , today.
We can by evicting them all in November, actually prevent this undesirable activity from ever happening. Now that would be a Christmas gift! It’s like Scrooge waking up and having not missed Christmas after all.
