Wow, it's Friday again already. I was told when I was a young fellow that time passes more quickly as you age. I'm here to attest to the truth of that statement. Time is now officially passing by much faster than I ever thought it would. But the funny part, the one I wasn't told about, is that everything in the past feels like it happened just last summer.
First day of school? Last summer.
First kiss? Ditto.
The best vacation? Birth of BackwardsBabyBoy? Heart attack, wait, that really was last summer.
At least the stuff I can remember feels that way. Now where was I?
Oh yeah, Friday.
The health care summit at Blair House was over-televised yesterday, but in a good way. The Republicans scored some points, with the primary one being that they showed America they weren't merely the party of "no". The points they brought up were well thought out and backed up with figures. Even David Gergen said that yesterday was the best day the Republicans have had in a while. (h/t Hot Air) One point that President Obama brought up was salient. He mentioned that many of the provisions in his health care bill are supported separately by the American public. He's right and the polls show it. Most of us think that we shouldn't be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition. We also think that our premiums are a bit too high for the coverage recieved and want them reduced. What he doesn't understand is that we want the private sector to fix these problems, not Washington. We've seen how massive government programs work, which isn't very well.
I still question the timing of this summit. I would've preferred a jobs summit, only with real business leaders. There is much to be done to revive the economy and what we're seeing from Reid, Pelosi and Obama is not helping. In fact, their "solutions" are only making things worse.
President Obama still defends his socialist agenda, even though by now, everyone can see that socialism doesn't work, never has, and never will. He'll need to defend it even more once he discovers that a majority of Americans now view his administration as a real threat to our rights. Mr. President, you're doing it wrong.
Finally, from our friends at the Jawa Report, comes The Patriot Song. It's a snazzy little ditty that'll have you humming the rest of the day.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
