Betrayed Trust (edited)

“Love all, trust a few, and do wrong to none.”                                                                         William Shakespeare

I, and you, have been betrayed again.  Jonathan Gruber, an architect of the horrific Affordable Care Act, has called out the American electorate.  It is our stupidity, he says, that is to blame for passage of that bill.  What we suspected all along has been validated now that the truth is known.  The entire process was shrouded in deceit, dishonesty and extortion.

No Mr. Gruber, Mr. Obama, Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Reid, we are not stupid. We trusted you.  We trusted you to do what was best for America and you betrayed us.  We are not stupid.  While we are out supporting our families, you were cutting back room deals, shrouded in secrecy.  While we were on field trips building character in Americas youth, you were loading them up with unmanageable debt. We trusted you!  While we were teaching our youth the power of the human spirit you were robbing the national treasury, promising them free stuff. We trusted you!  While we were busy building America, you were making it weak by removing the power of self determination through economically destructive social policies. We trusted you!

Had we the time to read and study this massive health care law we would be running for office and doing what you have proven so inept at.  We are not politicians.  We are ordinary, hard working citizens who want to trust the men and women we elect to high office, men and women whom we expect to govern with integrity while we go about living our lives.  We have been betrayed.  We trusted you.

Every person has the right to hold to an ideology that drives his or her life but does an ideology that uses deception as a tool to gain its adherents have any power to benefit the human race?  Such an ideology will flounder and die as will the Affordable Health Act. Although Noble in principle it severely lacks the “character” to fulfill its mission.

Mr. Gruber, you, as a paid assassin,  are just as guilty as the politicians who paid you $400K to do the job because your intent was to deceive.  For you the end justified the means.

If Harry Reid had an ounce of integrity he would relinquish his membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  It is likely that 90% of the active, tithe paying members of the church are scratching their heads wondering how Harry Reid can remain in “good standing” in the church.  Negotiating the Cornhusker Kickback, holding up legislation for political purposes without regard for what is best for America and a myriad of other sleazy deals reveal Harry Reid to be a man without a soul.  It doesn’t compute.  We trusted you!



The Destructive Power of Idealogy

Idealog:  “One given to fanciful ideas or theories; One who is guided more by the image of perfection than by the real world.” Synonyms:  Crusader, Fanatic.

Idealogues who have power, as does the current administration in Washington, offer up a Clear and Present Danger to the very existence of the greatest government in the history of mankind – American democracy and the capitalist system.  Actions of the Obama administration continue to demonstrate its inability to balance reality with fantasy while setting America on the path to becoming a second rate country.  Not a country where everyone has to opportunity for self determination, but a country where the poorer become poorer and the freedom of opportunity comes in the form of a handout from the government.  Points.

1.  This Presidency has bent over backwards to pacify an idealogy that has vowed to destroy the American way of life.  His exchange of five high level world terrorists for an American whose allegiance itself is questionable while he did nothing to save the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and those brave men who died with him is not only appalling but gives a new meaning to the word hypocrisy. Was not Chris Stevens serving this great nation just as are the members of our military and did he not deserve the same level of protection?  With thousands of years of history to reference why do we not realize it is a fantasy to believe that the Taliban and fanatic Muslims are open to any form of compromise.  When is this administration going to learn?

2.  The Idealogue continues to strangle the American economy by promoting climate change as a force attributable only to the existence on humans on the planet.  Given, we should take individual responsibility to establish and maintain a clean environment and I have seen the air in Los Angeles change from choking to breathable in the seventies.  However, in reality, The world has, and continues to, go through cycles during which the climate changes.  Pollutants spewed into the atmosphere daily by worldwide volcanic eruptions and forest fires make the carbon footprint left by mankind puny in comparison.  No question we need to be vigilant but we also must be rational.  Idealogues are rarely rational and also consistently twist or hide the truth to achieve their ends.



The Divide is Getting Wider and Meaner

This young man who tweeted that 95% of whites are mean and then talks about killing them is just one symptom of the degree to which Al Sharpton’s hate mongering is taking hold in the hearts of too many African American youth.  They see themselves as victims.  How about building bridges instead of burning them.  How about bringing your “enemy” into your circle instead of shutting him out.  Can we not be honest, face the brutal facts of why so many minority children are underachievers and then attack the facts with positive action.  After the election of Barak Hussein Obama, the myth that success for any child in America is denied because of race evaporated like frost in the morning sun.  No one, I repeat, no one has excuse in America for not dreaming and living their dreams.  The victim mentality, preached by the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the the world will forever, if not reversed, infect this young generation.
