I wrote the following post 54 weeks ago. Funny how history keeps repeating itself, isn't it?
"Funny", as it is used here does not mean "Funny" in a good way...
First, an excellent Rock Video by Def Leppard asking the Moo-sical Question:
"Are you gettin' it? Armageddon it?"
Yeah, I'm A-Gettin-It.
Next, let me ask you this:
Q.: Who doesn't get it?
A.: President Obama.
Here we find the President of the United States mocking over 50% of Americans who did not WANT the Health Care Reform Bill Congress was selling.
Okay, so someone reading this is shaking their head saying, "Oh, but he was only 'mocking' Republicans, right? That's NOT a big deal, stuff like this has been going on FOREVER..."
No. When is the last time you recall this level of Partisanship co-mingled this level Arrogance from a President of the United States? Isn't he supposed to represent ALL Americans, not just the HIS guys and gals on the Left?
Ah, but we have plowed this ground before and it is not the focus of today's post.
I wanted to spend a moment or two to look at the events which have transpired SINCE President Obama told us that HE didn't see "Armeggedon" following the passage of Health Care Legislation.
So how have we fared since Health Care Reform was passed on March 21st, 2010?
Let's take a look back, shall we???

I wonder WHAT ELSE President Obama doesn't see?
Perhaps we should ask him because now, I'm worried.
Ar·ma·ged·don/ˌɑrməˈgɛdn/ Show Spelled[ahr-muh-ged-n] –noun
1. the place where the final battle will be fought between the forces of good and evil (probably so called in reference to the battlefield of Megiddo. Rev. 16:16).
2. the last and completely destructive battle: The arms race can lead to Armageddon.
3. any great and crucial conflict.
President Obama, I see great and crucial conflicts arising daily. Maybe you do not because your economic and social policies are causing many of them. And when you ignore the wishes of more than 50% of Americans, might I fairly assume that one side could be considered 'Good' and the other side, if not 'Evil', well, be considered at best, 'Wrong'?
I guess the sides of Good and Evil are in the eyes of the beholder. It is for history to decide who is right and who is wrong.
For now, however, I have chosen the side which I will stand with.
See you on the other side President Obama!
