A Curse on Both Your Houses

Tonight they did it. The majority of democrats in the United States House of Representatives voted “yes” on the health-care atrocity and got it passed. They took the 30 pieces of silver and betrayed us, their nation, their voters, even their own children.

And it’s not just health care, America. You know that, right?

Back in the early days of his presidency and the heyday of his campaign, Barack Obama informed us that he intended to “fundamentally transform” America. Well, health care is only the beginning. And Obama, not unlike Nero, knows this as tonight he sits in his palatial digs watching basketball (Nero fiddled) as America (for Nero, it was Rome) burns.

Obama, Speaker-of-the-House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and all the Congressional representatives who so willingly do their bidding, can claim victory tonight, though I have a feeling all are not celebrating. They know this is wrong. Nevertheless, they have plenty more in store for us in dear leader’s mission to dominate, crush and transform the United States of America. They began tonight by grabbing control of America’s health-care system, without benefit of constitutional rule or the consent of the American people. They grabbed control of a health-care system that until this day was the best in the world. Tonight they made sure that that will no longer be.

Next stop: Amnesty for those who enter our country illegally and promise to vote democrat. Then, seize the guns.

Nancy is salivating at the thought. Fired up now by her and her minions’ ability to threaten, bribe and cajole her weak-kneed, weasely dems into obeying her and the White House’s every command, all Pelosi, her President and their minions must do is deem it, and it will be theirs. Ignore the roar of the astroturf-Nazi American moms, dads, kids and grandparents pounding on the castle walls and dare to oppose them, dare to defy them. Ignore the Constitution and rule of law. Deem it, and America is transformed. Poof! Just like that.

So tonight I say to all who voted for the man who made this all possible and now regret it, including members of my own extended family: You knew exactly who and what you were voting for, so let’s just skip the words of regret, shall we? The man may lie like Pinocchio on steroids at Pleasure Island today, but he told us all the truth back when he was a candidate. He is doing exactly what he and his teleprompter promised during those halcyon days when he floated from one coast to the other, casting his messianic spell with hope, change and twin teleprompters, you Obama voters clinging in ecstasy to his robes.

And now you whimper that you made a mistake. No, it wasn’t a mistake. It was a choice. You never bothered to listen to what he was saying — what in the words “spread the wealth around” and “the Constitution is a flawed document” did you not understand? You didn’t want to listen. It was more fun to go out on that glorious November day and cast your vote, and for a day that vote made you all warm and fuzzy and toasty inside because you made history. You awoke the next morning, along with the lapdog journalists who made it their mission to get this man in office, and, together, you reveled in the celebration, knowing that like every President, this one, too, would move toward the center, and he would carry America into a whole new mecca of hope and change. He was your guy.

But it didn’t quite work out that way, did it? He didn’t move to the center (he never said he would). He didn’t bring anyone together. He doesn’t care that millions are out of work. He vilifies anyone who opposes him. He has surrounded himself with quite a cadre of shady and incompetent people, too, hasn’t he? And that whole bit about taking over private industry and all the threats and backroom deals….that’s not really what you expected either, is it? Kind of makes you squirm, doesn’t it?

Too bad. Like I said, you got exactly who and what you voted for. Unfortunately, though, so did the rest of us. And, sadly, so did our children. And our grandchildren who haven’t even been born yet.

So in keeping with your votes for this man, tonight a bunch of people in our United States Congress did exactly what you did: They chose Obama and Pelosi over their country, their families and, in many cases, the voters who sent them to Washington. Though I firmly believe many were forced, bribed and threatened into doing it, they took the 30 pieces of silver and cast their shameful “yes” votes. They know they will live to regret it. But they did it anyway. And they should be ashamed.

I take no pleasure in saying that many have now learned what the rest of us already knew: Despite what Obama said the other day, elections do matter. And elections can throw all of America into despair, as we are and will be seeing in the days to come. Let us just pray tonight that we still have time to rescue our great nation from the clutches of this man’s election and from this Congress’ election, and may we take our country back with the next one.
