It's As If A Million Voices Suddenly Cried Out In Terror, And Were Suddenly Silenced. I Feel Something Terrible Has Happened.

The price tag is one thing, and should have been enough to cause anyone with half a brain to reject this "health care" bill. But even if a meteorite made of trillion dollar bills had landed on the White House lawn, I'd still find it sickening, because now the government will send me to prison if I don't buy a product from them.

Doesn't matter if I don't want it, don't need it, or ignore it. It is now the law of the land that if I don't buy a particular product, I'm going to jail.

Frankly, I'm sickened. Angry, yes. Disappointed, sure. But more than that, sickened. I went to bed Sunday night a free man, and woke up Monday morning a serf.

Serfs don't have guns.

I heard the lawmakers exempted themselves. If it's so good for everyone else, why don't they want to be part of it?

I have a friend who still says "the south will rise again"...if by "the south", he includes areas like Idaho and New Hampshire, and drops California and Lousiana, he may be right.

Indeed. "Coldly it lies," Nietzsche wrote of the State "and this lie slips from its mouth: `I, the State, am the people.'"

Not a huge fan, but a good quote nonetheless. I'm getting very irritated about all of this.. and I'm a calm dude...

BTW: Don't get too sickened, you may end up on a death panel watch list ;)
