In the words of Ralphie of the Christmas Story: Oh Fuuuuuudge!
Last night, in a last ditch effort to save US, Senator Jim DeMint went down to the floor of the Senate and made a motion to suspend the rules of the Senate to allow the insertion of one more amendment into the health care legislation. His amendment? A prohibition on cash for cloture.
The roll call vote that changed our democratic nation into a socialist nation. This last ditch effort failed last night, but DeMint is still my hero and Nelson proved himself to be a 'sunshine patriot'. ("THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country"- Thomas Paine)
So I woke up this morning and got just what I expected: a lump of coal from my government who's supposed to protect and stand up for me. Like thief in the night the Senate has slipped into your home to steal away your freedoms.
With that said let us remember that no matter how things get we will always have hope, we can always petition for assistance.
This is the magic of the season; the Christ child, if we let him in, will always represent hope. The Spirit of Christmas illuminates the picture window for the soul. To catch the real meaning of the spirit of christmas we need only drop the last sylllable and it becomes the spirit of Christ, Merry Christmas!
