This is the ultimate insult to Christianity.  This must be stopped.

    And I digress.

    There are a few things we can all agree upon. Certain inalienable rights are bestowed upon man from his maker, not the state. Civil rights and privileges accrue to all without regard to those life styles whether embraced, gifted, inherited or learned, that do not infringe on others freedom. Education of our young is a sacred charter and cannot be the soul dominion of any ideology or theology. Revenge and reparations for any real or perceived wrong is always counter productive to spiritual healing although it may be necessary and instructive to modify the behavior of perpetrators. The redefining of words, their semantics, like conservatism, liberalism, Marxism, Nazism, progressivism, communism, currentism, and marriage is a historically successful maneuver to reposition dialogue and arguments without dealing with the truth, the value of clarity and the simplicity of truism like the Ten Commandments, however you choose to interpret them. And therein lies the devil, he is “interpretation.” And finally, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

    “Repeal and remake” sounds like a slogan any sports conference loser would love to embrace. It will be a while, due to the nature of man, before the passage of this legislation results in that prophesy of “unintended consequences.” They are not judged to all be good or bad, but one learns again and again “to be careful of that for which you ask.” Nothing is inevitable, perfect or infallible.

    In the Contract with America we rejected “term limits.” The strongest opposition to freedom, liberty and honesty is buried in our DNA. It is survival of the fittest. One can twist and torture this concept but it is at the root of all evil. The control and wise management of this trait from God and nature’s God is the alternative, the “good”, something intertwined in the concept of free will. The choice to do the “right” or “wrong” thing is always within our power. Our democratic process, with its ability to corrupt from within, is nothing more than a self indoctrination akin to convincing a child to strap on suicide belt and kill people because it is the “will of God.” The proverbial fork in the road is frequent and always either “Right” or “Wrong.” The only nuance to our republic is degree of effect. Utopia is unrealistic, extinction is all too realizable. And in-between there is a great battle, struggle, progression and regression.

    The Trojan horse was the ultimate prize of a battle won. History shows the twist of fate, unintended consequences, and the value of readjusting your priorities back to core concepts and beliefs. A battle rarely defines a war. George Washington, it is reported, lost many if not all of his battles until the last. And how close, in the balance, was the naval battle in the Pacific in WWII. And how close was Japan and Germany to the fabrication of the atomic bomb immediately before VJ and VG day?

    One must never forget that our founding fathers also believed in some strange ideas. Thomas Payne believed in wealth redistribution. Alexander Hamilton thought a central bank was a good idea. And we have chosen to finally give these ideas a chance. Beware, that case study, ‘The rise and Fall of Rome.”

    Mankind actually had to build and use gas chambers before the philosophy of George Bernard Shaw (it is fitting that the public enjoyed his talent and mostly disregarded his social justice message, to our detriment) and the theory of eugenics was finally felt by the populous to be unwise.

    The worst bill, arguably, ever to pass congress can be influenced positively by refusing to fund the truly bad parts of this bill. Are we up to the task? A benevolent dictator is the perfect but impossible solution.
