The Individual Mandate. Why’s It Important?
You know the old adage, the camel’s nose under the edge of the tent? Before long, your Persian carpets are covered with camel dung.
You ask what’s different with the ObamaCare Individual Mandate from merely having to pay taxes? Government insists on that, do they not? Yes, they do, but there’s a precondition…you have to earn some money. Do you have to pay Social Security? Of course, as a portion of earnings. To all other government interference in your life there are pre-conditions.
This was just too good not to pass along:
1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country, and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don’t really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.

Traveling back to Montana, spending the first night on the Barbary Coast in a city with one of America’s most beautiful locations, if not the most beautiful in the U.S. And one of the ugliest underbellies. We’re in the Palace Hotel, where President Harding died in the 20′s, rumored to have been murdered by his wife as it was also rumored that he was quite a philanderer. However none of that has been proven and I prefer to think he died in his sleep from an anurism, as was reported. Then, the press had some respect…not that I think that necessarily a good thing. At this point and time, above all others, I wish they were the fire breathing dragons they’ve been at times in the past. Obamagate is a far bigger story than Watergate, but of course this is a Democratic administration and that a Republican. If the press is the fourth estate, it’s going to be up to us, you and me, WE THE PEOPLE, the fifth estate, to spread the facts about Obama. for the liberal press have neither the guts nor the conviction to do so. And now, with the internet, we have the ability to do so.
