Conservative Corner: How Do You Explain?Oct 10th, 2013 | By Admin | Category: Editorials
A large percentage of the citizens of our beautiful nation are strongly opposed to the chaotic, socialized health care law that we are being shackled with. It had to be passed in order to “find out what is in it” and yet at this time when it is being implemented, no one person can seem to state that they have read the full 10,000 plus pages explaining this massive “octopus” with its far reaching, poisonous tentacles. Even some early supporters have now called it a “train wreck.” Many doctors are planning to close their practices, a large portion of the workforce most likely will become part time and many employers will be forced into compromising their religious convictions due to the regulations in this law. The first week for sign up has been disaster with comments that it is not ready for “prime time.” The House of Representatives has sent three Bills to the Senate which would fund the government, but not the “train wreck.” It seems that unless they feed the “octopus,” they are uncompromising and at fault for shutting down the government. Shutting Down The Government? It has been disclosed that park rangers have been instructed to make people as uncomfortable as possible. Funds have been found to barricade memorials in Washington, cone off road side parking areas approaching Mt. Rushmore and provide manpower to enforce the “no admittance” to memorials as directed by the Whitehouse. Quite a bit of expense where normally there is none or where there is a service provided by volunteers or nongovernment employees. 1,100 square miles of open water also is considered unsustainable when government shuts down and is now requiring special patrols to keep boaters out. (Now that is creating discomfort when you come between a fisherman and his catch). Restaurants and privately owned businesses have been closed in and near parks. An 80 year old couple whose property is on park land, was given 24 hours to vacate their home. Websites have been taken down (not Michelle’s). Apparently Camp David, where the president seldom goes, is still fully operational – cooks and all. My granddaughter is dealing with all sorts of closures on her military base, which is typical, but I understand that there are golf courses still open on some bases. Non military Catholic priests will be arrested if they attempt to hold services – even if they want to do it as a volunteer. All because Congress will not “feed the octopus.” Look For The Flags Truckers and Overpass Impeachment Demonstrators will be flying flags this weekend in support of the Constitution. Truckers with handcuffs in hand are descending on Washington, intending to circle the city, making the point that politicians who have forgotten their oath to uphold the Constitution need to be arrested. Wow! How many trucks full do you suppose that would be? These are not Republicans and Democrats, they are Patriots who love their country like the bikers who rode peacefully and orderly through Washington a couple of weeks ago. Thumbs up for speaking up. SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION!
