As Predicted, ObamaCare Plunges Into 'Utter Chaos'
« on: December 28, 2013, 08:27:25 PM »
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

In this case it must be very cold comfort to have your predictions confirmed.

Government program = monster for people; the usual result.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I agree with both of you.  The Democrats, and especially Obama, will do ANYTHING to salvage this wreck.  If that means harming real people, or collapsing the economy, or maligning the Constitution... so be it.  The final chapters of this debacle will be painful and destructive.  It is indeed cold comfort, at this moment, that the Democrats may pay a political price for the mess.

"Catastrophe" may not be a powerful enough word to describe what is coming - not merely in terms of what the imposition of ACA/ObamaCare will do all by itself, but also with respect to what Democrats will likely be willing to do to defend and protect it.

Nice to see you back, Lando. Sorry to hear about your dad.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

"May" is the key word there.  Sure is a shame when so many can see the obvious but are continually swayed my more free sh*t.
