Obama Knows Best

I think I see the problem.

The wise leaders try to improve our lives through the beneficence of myriad laws. In effect, we are too stupid to do any choosing for ourselves. We are inferior. But even the most vociferous advocate of government eventually comes to something he’d like some say in.

Justification

I just had a thought in my head, rattling around like a BB in a boxcar.

Have you noticed that the expanding Police State rolls on without justification? The burden of proof seems to fall on people who would prefer less government.

Case in point:

Alleged “problem”: 40 million people don’t have health insurance.

“Solution”: Force them to buy health insurance.

And when the “Tea Party Republicans” make a half-hearted attempt to slow this outrage, the “Saviour” Democrats say, “You can’t argue against a law that has been passed.”

Angering The Comrade Children

OMG

It is inexcusable, of course, to stop science, or starve babies, or throw people out on the street. But when you start pissing off 6th graders, well, a line has been crossed.

 

“I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman’s club is false progress, and of no permanent value.”

In Mother’s Arms

Obamination

Obamacare. Safe. Reassuring. Sounds like mother cradling you in her arms. But Obamacare has nothing to do with medical treatment. It’s a law that forces you to buy insurance. If you’re an old-timer like me, you can remember a time before mandatory vehicle insurance. Back then, insurance for your car was affordable, so even teenagers could, and did, buy insurance. Now, it might just be that it doesn’t necessarily follow, but I can’t help noticing that auto insurance is not very affordable anymore, and the law certainly hasn’t stopped people from driving without the insurance they can’t afford. 

Insurance is usually purchased to protect us from catastrophe, not inconvenience. But most people’s idea of health insurance is really pre-paid medical. Got a wart or have a heart attack? Just a $5 co-pay to have the doctor fix you up, no matter whether your ailment is major or minor.

Obamacare connotes the great lawgiver’s gift to “the people.” I’m pretty sure O didn’t write the damn law. Do you think he’s even read it? Do you think any of the legislators that passed it have bothered to read it? Do you know anyone who thinks Obamacare is a good idea? Do you know any legislators who think its a good idea?

If Obamacare had a different name, do you think it would be even less popular? How about Obamastortion? Obamarob-a? BarryMyFootUp?
