". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Nationalized Health Care

It's on its way, via the so-called "stimulus" package. And here I thought that, this being a free country and all, our new president would have to actually present a health care proposal to the American people and make his case, letting it succeed or fail on the merits.

Silly me. How could I forget? Whatever Obama and the Democrats want, Obama and the Democrats get. So much for transparency and daylight. They won, you see.

Have you noticed I'm not posting on politics as much as I once did? The reason is that my tummy kind of likes to hang on to its contents. And these days thinking about our country and all the ways we are daily losing it makes me literally sick.

Can anyone give me any hope? Is it possible Obama will make so many mistakes that we will only have four years of this before the American people come to their senses?

If they do miraculously come to their senses, will it be too late to matter?

Maybe you shouldn't answer that. I'd kind of like my breakfast to stay put.

We're wearing figurative crepe armbands here, mourning the losses of freedom.

Maybe Christ will come back? I mean it when I pray Come Lord Jesus - and I add Come quickly! :)

This just depresses me. :(
