Let's put this in perspective, shall we....one faction of one party in one house, almost managed to destroy the greatest nation on this planet over one piece of legislation that had been voted upon, passed by both houses of Congress, signed into law by the President and then vetted by the United States Supreme Court.
It is law and as such, cannot and never could be repealed via the method used for the past two weeks by the Teabaggers and their enablers.
All the players knew this, so why proceed by playing a game you can't win....unless the real purpose was not to win concesssions on healthcare, but to try and put the Black man in the White House back in his place?
Didn't matter that the Black man has won two elections by landslide and has the country moving economically in the correct (not right) direction. Doesn't matter that the deficit is going down or that the stock market is breaking new records and some people at least, are making bucket loads of money.
This 26 million dollar a day fight to end Obamacare, lay off thousands of workers and close parks and divisions and governmental departments, was solely to prove that the masters of the universe were still large and in charge, holding all the reins of power.
But it didn't work. President Obama laughed and refused to budge. Reports say a woman, was behind him finding his big brass balls (Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser, not Michelle, first wife, this time.)
And if you take a closer look at this “fight,” you will see that the bigoted culture warriors had to be bailed out by the women. The deal was forged by the women of Congress, who stepped in and took over in order to save the country.
Women, by nature, understand that the needs of the many outweigh the needs and wants of the few. In other words, if the boys get their way...women, children and other men die...they kill everything including the planet..something the masters of the universe have yet to come to grips with or understand, since they keep doing it over and over and over.
So to sum it up, the old masters of the universe lost to the Black man and then had their collective asses saved by women, their second biggest enemy in their battle for power and control.
Having 20 women in the Senate is a good thing. Replacing the obstructing masters of the universe is also a good thing.
We can start with my own Representative, Steve “Comb-over” Chabot who hasn't had an original idea since he was born. In fact I now understand why public schools are so screwed up..with teachers like Chabot, our kids are fucked from jump.
District two would be wise to dump Dr. Brad as well. Wenstrup, otherwise known as Jean Schmidt in pants is another obstructionist who needs a quick and early retirement as well, before he has a chance to do any more damage.
Boehner, Boehner, Boehner...voted in favor of the deal after abdicating his duties as Speaker of the House and enabling these nutcases to control the Republican echo chamber during this failed power grab.
Vote him out of office, please, 8th District. He survived the Newt Gingrich purge. He should not live through the coming one.
Wish I could say that I'm happy, but I'm not. All this deal does is delay any decision making until February, making a replay of events, a distinct possibility.
The President says that won't happen, but I don't know, these fools voted 44 times to repeal a law that is a law, and part of the Constitution.
The pessimist in me says number 45 will happen in February, unless Americans put down their cell phones and other toys and begin voting these guys out of office.
One last thought if you believe things will be different in February...think about how long it took them to gut the Voting Rights Act of 1965....it can happen, if the system is not changed soon..
Remember in November and Vote...
