And Eurasia has always been our ally.
Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia, and East Asia has always been our ally.
This convuluted little saying comes from my favorite movie Nineteen Eighty-Four. To me, in my humble, yet highly educated, opinion, is a great way to look at the Obamacareless debate that is once again rearing its socialist, ugly head. It's gotten so large, and so many of its principle players have switched sides so many times, that it has the orgainization of a Turkish prison riot. You have Progressiveviks jumping ship and then swimming back to the ship even though it's on fire, then jumping off once again. Every politician and hanger-on is running for cover.
For God's sake, this has to stop. The country can't take much more of this.
I hate to sound all wishy-washy, but let's face facts like an adult. This isn't the time for some sweeping social reform. The last time I checked, the federal deficit has reached nightmare proportions. We are involved in two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, shadow wars in Yemen and Somalia, an unconstitutional occupation of Haiti, and oh yeah, in case you forgot, 10% unemployment. Yet, the United States Congress (emphasis on the con part) is busy with a piece of legislation that the majority of Americans have already given the middle finger to. The last thing we need is more of this pointless debate. The American people, you know, the peons who will have to live with this, have already had their say. They said: NO.
I'm forced to ask this question: Why ? Why now ?
The answer is ugly, but what the hell ? The answer is:
The arrogance of power. Absolute power corrupts ABSOLUTELY. (Eventually, I'm going to have that word copyrighted.)
If you aren't convinced that Obama isn't a power hungry ego-maniac by willfully going against the will of the American people by drudging this up again, you need psychological help and buckets of meds. The only reason Obama is chasing after the Ghost of Progressiveviks Past of universal health care is his Montana-sized ego. He wants to go down in history as the man who suceeded where Teddy Roosevelt and Bill Clinton failed. Does he care that the US economy is starting to look like Zimbabwe's ? Nah, that's not an issue. Does he care that countries by the dozens are lining up to destroy us ? No siree-bob, he doesn't. (A lot of them are his friends, like Hugo Chavez. I hear they belong to the same reading club.) All that's important to our Dear Leader is his place in history, consequences be damned,
I'm not going to waste any of my valuable time even posing this argument to the Ego-Maniac in Chief, so I'll pose it to the most powerful person in Congress, Princess Nancy, Ruler of The People's Republic of Pelosi. We The People...have had enough. We can't live our lives wondering when the axe is going to be dropped on our necks. I know, Princess Nancy, you want your piece of the history pie too, but is it really worth it ? Is another summer of anger and hate really necessary ? Are you willing to to hold Chairman Obama's hand on the way down off the cliff ? Do you want to be Obama's accomplice in this mess ?
Oceania has always been at war with East Asia and Eurasia. Oceania has no allies. Big Brother needs to work on his people skills.
So does Chairman Obama.
