Despite the bill NOT being read by anyone, and no one knowing exactly what's in it, the House of Representatives passed the bill, 219 to 212. There is exactly ONE full copy of the bill! If there is only one copy of the bill, how can they know what is in it? They cannot, and how can they make policy of this? Politics in the United States has become a total sham and a scandal. Beyond a scandal. This is totally ridiculous, and anyone that supports these people voting FOR a bill that they have not even read, or know fully what is in it, or what it will do, is a flat out idiot. There is no way around it. I'm sorry to say that there are certified cretins in our House of Representatives, and many people voted them in, and what does that say about the American people? They are more interested in American Idol and the winner of that than what is going on in Washington DC, even though American Idol has NO effect on their lives, and is pure amusement, while what goes on in DC affects their lives and wallets.
By the way, a wise preacher once defined amusement as "muse" - to think on, thinking, to be occupied with thinking. Now think of the prefix "a". It means "lack of" so amusement would be "lack of thinking" and that is what the American people are full of today. They are only living for amusement. Lack of thought! How much does that describe the United States today?
I was in Yahoo! Chat talking to a young lady from China about 2 weeks ago. She's seen Sex and the City, and that is the image she has of America. That is the image we are projecting across the world, a country void of morals and values, a country void of anything but aimless thought, vapid people, shallow people. Makes me sick to have people think that Americans are this way. And Obama's apology tour doesn't help anything - that the US is responsible for every evil in the world.
It's time for people to wake up to what is going on in this country. Get involved in politics. Don't let your country go to hell in a handbasket. Don't let your great-grandparents or grandparents down, or your father, who probably fought for this country, let this country slide into a third world country, into a banana republic.
My great-grandparents came to this country to find a better life. Let's not let that better life degrade into something degenerate.
