Miscellaneous Meanderings

I haven't been feeling well and still don't feel well but I didn't want to go any longer without posting so here are a few thoughts on a couple articles as well as a video posted below.  

In What Obama and the Tea Party have in common by George F. Will, Will claims that both Obama and the tea party have "disdain for the practice of politics within the Framers’ institutional architecture."  By this George Will is mainly referring to compromise but also to the separation of powers. 

In my opinion George Will is both correct and incorrect.  Correct in the fact that neither the Tea Party or Obama likes to compromise.  But incorrect since by compromising we have strayed so far from what the Framers' built in the United States - the train has derailed off the tracks, crashed, and now needs to be rebuilt - that it is important that the Tea Party espouse and defend the constitution and not cede any more power and control to those who believe in progressivism, European socialism.  

Sarah Palin says: "Today, doesn't it seem like we have a Corrupt Bastards Club in D.C.? On steroids? It might not be as oily and obvious as its Alaska counterpart, but it’s just as compromised because its members, too, are indifferent to what their actions mean for We the People." 

What we have witnessed is the bastardization of politics by GOP establishment and Democrats over the past decade. In addition we have witnessed the bastardization of our health care system over the past 4 or 5 years thanks to progressives as well as the GOP establishment who are weak- kneed "be reasonable, don't offend the other side" defeatist cowards.  Instead of the GOP standing united the GOP was fractured because of the establishment who abandoned camp and in their cowardly fashion supported the Democrats who stood firm and made it known that they were unwilling to budge, no compromise for them.  Even when it the prerogative of the House to fund or refuse to fund whatever part of the government they decide. Please do go over to read the rest of Palin's article on the establishment and Obamacare. It is a great article.  Yep Folks what we have is the Corrupt Bastards Club in D.C.

Hope you feel better soon. My left lung collapsed this January and I know how hard it is to get back to feeling healthy.
