Two thirds of America is against the Health Care Reform act signed into law by President B.O. The President, who claims victory for being the architect of and responsible for passing into law, this health care reform, has been challenged by the GOP to repeal the law which is unconstitutional on the grounds that it forces Americans to purchase a product or service against their will, and carries a fine for violation of the law, and garnishment of your wages or a jail sentence if you do not pay the fine. In other words, if you have a job, you will pay the fine or have your wages garnished to collect the fine, but if you are one of the 12 million people unemployed because of empty promises by B.O., who cant pay the fine for not having health insurance because you are unemployed, you will go to jail.
Democrat – President John F. Kennedy said "ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country". (see full speech here)
President B.O. states in response to this challenge, “My attitude is, go for it. You try to repeal it” and what we heard was [I dare you]. The absolute smug audacity to say "Go for it", just try it, smacks of the conviction of a dictator who is convinced that he himself has done something that better not be challenged or swift retribution will fall upon those who challenge it.
This does not sound like true leadership that was extremely evident in President Kennedy, or of a president who upholds the Constitution and reveres the Declaration of Independence as the bible of our country. Nor does it sound like a President who understands and holds sacred that as a republic, We the People, are governed by the people through representation. The voice of the people rule this land. Yet this President and the democrat majority in congress feel it is their job to do what they feel is necessary, and ignoring the majority of its citizens, by forcing a bill into law without public approval and consent.
The White House suggests it has the upper hand on the issue politically, arguing the GOP risks a voter backlash because a repeal would take away many benefits. Among them are tax credits for small businesses to provide health care to their workers and $250 rebates for seniors to help pay for their prescription medications.
What the law also requires is that an extra tax be imposed on the sale of all medical devices such as wheel chairs, defibrillators, respirators, oxygen tanks, prosthetics, heart monitors and just about anything you may need for medical reasons. These taxes will be imposed on the manufacturers of these devises and of course will be passed along to you, the consumer, to compensate for the extra cost. [ see news clip at http://news.yahoo.com/video/opinion-15749653/obamacare-tax-shock-18934733 ] So much for a $250 rebate for seniors which pales compared to the extra costs of medical devices.
And now for what should have been an April Fool’s joke. GUAM Might Tip over or capsize! The following Video is real, aired on CSPAN and I am sure confounds anyone seeing it. Rep Hank Johnson – 4th Congressional District in Georgia (Democrat) interviewing Admiral of Pacific Forces on the feasibility of costs to send 8000 troops and their families to be stationed in Guam.

Now, I was under the impression that congressmen were drug tested and are not escapees from mental wards, but I have been wrong before.
