Snowmaggedon, George W. Bush, a Kennedy Goodbye and Obamacare

February 19, 2010 by  

*“Snowmaggedon” didn’t last long enough. With my apologies to many friends in the Washington, D.C., area who work at productive jobs in the private sector, let me say, I wish your city had been paralyzed longer. The only time I feel safe from government is when it’s shut down.

*“Miss Me Yet?” That’s the provocative question that’s appearing on many billboards in the Midwest—above a larger-than-life-sized picture of a smiling and waving George W. Bush. While I was no fan of Mr. Bush’s budget-busting social policies—or for that matter, his propensity to risk American lives in every two-bit banana republic around the world—I do have to admit, yes, our country was safer and our dollar was stronger when he was in office.

*Another Kennedy bids adieu. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, son of the late Senator Ted Kennedy, has announced that he will not seek reelection in Massachusetts this fall. Unless he changes his mind (or another Kennedy steps forward), this will be the first time in more than half a century that no Kennedy is serving in Congress. While his dad combined a powerful legislative record with a dissolute personal life, the son has only managed to copy his father on the second.

*Big-buck investors bet Obamacare is dead. Maybe the liberals in Washington still hope to pass some version of a socialized healthcare bill, but the big money is betting it won’t happen. How do I know? HCA Inc., the largest hospital operator in the nation, just agreed to pay out a special dividend to its owners of $1.75 billion. No way would these canny investors do that if they didn’t think their business is going to be very, very profitable. They don’t plan to live on what Medicare pays.

    I think the thing that struck me the most, was they said that you didn’t need to come to work unless you were absolutely necessary to the function and day to day operations of the Government… yet NO ONE FROM THE SENATE OR CONGRESS CAME TO WORK! I think that just about sais it all!
    This is a government for the people, by the people, and of the people, yet everyone in Washington lives in a BUBBLE created by Chicago THUG POLITICS! What the heck was America thinking; hiring a man who has no PRIVATE SECTOR EXPERIENCE? We got exactly what we voted for, and worse! THANK GOD ABOVE, PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP, AND SEEING THE LIGHT….. I JUST HOPE ITS NOT TOO LATE. WE HAVE A LOT OF DAMAGE TO REPAIR….

    HOPEFUY

    Let’s be realistic people. Obama got elected by a bunch of people who believed that they personally would financially benefit from his presidential administration. Be they the lower class chronically poor “free ride” class or the upper class who see federal money flowing into their businesses and their personal pockets. Two things make this world go around. Money and sex. Even poor people have sex.
