There is no question that the passage of the Health Care Bill last weekend has aroused genuine anger from Tea Party activists and all freedom loving Americans whether they identify with a particular political party or not.And from what I’ve seen it’s the kind of anger that arises out of people’s hearts when something or someone they love is unjustly disparaged,disrespected or harmed in some way i.e. righteous anger. In this case that which has been disparaged is the Constitution and the country we all love, the United States of America. It is motivated by love of Country not hatred of freedom loving Americans,Conservatives and Christians the way the proponents of genuine hate in the mainstream media and leftwing blogosphere are comparing tea party types with any wacko who has committed violence against political opponents in the past like Tim McVay did against the Clinton Administration or disagrees with the policies of their present leader …the enlightened one…Barack Hussein Obama.
In Christianity run of the mill anger is considered a sin and one of the fruits of the flesh that characterize ungodly behavior. When Jesus walked into the Temple and saw the money changers carrying on unscrupulous business practices for a profit in the holiest place in all of Israel, the temple in Jerusalem, he immediately became smitten with anger of a righteous nature and kicked over the tables of the moneychangers, driving the unscrupulous swindlers away.
It’s the mother lion protecting her cubs or human parents defending their children. Or in this case the Son of God defending His Father’s House of Worship. In my opinion and it's only my opinion, I think it could also be average folks outraged at the way the wishes of the vast majority of Americans who have opposed the Government takeover of our Health Care system have been blatantly ignored in the most disrespectful way imaginable which certainly came as no surprise.
For they were ignored at town hall meetings; They were ignored at Tea Party rallies and outside of the Capitol Building on more than one occasion; and their phone calls, emails, and snail mail was also ignored over and over again. They pushed it through on the Christian Sabbath day or what is known as the “Lord’s Day” in most Christian fellowhips and literally shoved it down our throats. During the aftermath they have gloated and slapped each other on the back and declared victory even though they didn’t have one vote from the opposition party and circumvented the traditional 60 vote margin needed in the Senate by using a process not designed for a bill of this magnitude. And the reaction from the majority of Americans has been outrage. It’s been so bad democrats have been forced to make up accounts of threats so they can appear to be victims rather than the reason behind the anger which is much more than your run of the mill anger…it’s righteous anger. And now Democrats are shaking in their boots because they know they have stirred up anger in the depths of our souls by force feeding us a piece of legislation that we told them we did not want in no uncertain terms.
And now their wondering why the people they kicked in the face are rising up with a sense of anger and emotional outrage and are now planning and implementing a strategy of removing all those who voted for this Bill out of Office in their individual States. There are those who say the anger will never last that long because people have short memories when it comes to politics. Well sometimes that is true but If we’re talking about genuine Righteous Anger, which I believe we are, were talking about something that won’t dissipate quickly. No, we’re not talking about political polls taking a nose dive or going through the roof in a relatively short period of time over average policy decisions. Righteous anger is something that resonates at the very core of a persons sense of self-esteem and translates into dedicated action with the noblest of intentions and supreme integrity, no matter what obstacles are thrown there way
When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor with Brutal force on Dec 7, 1941, the United States responded with Brutal Force that left the Countries of the Axis Powers involved in a dustheap of ashes and death when the war finally came to an end in 1945. That was clearly a display of righteous anger unlike anything the world has ever seen before. It was a response that wasn’t motivated by hatred or racial terror the way one of the stars in the World War II miniseries, “the Pacific”, Tom Hanks, has been describing the conflict. No it was righteous anger and so is what we are seeing rise from the passage of the Health Care Bill that has been interpreted by the masses as a clear assault on people who love this country and fear for it's future in many ways. Can you compare this display of anger with that displayed in World War II by the allies. Of course not. But I really believe it is righteous anger, none-the-less, or darn close to it.
It, however is not being described that way by the Democrats in Congress or the national media which saw it as right-wing thugs and criminals spewing out hatred as congressmen entered the Capital to vote for this despicable bill. But this wasn’t hate being communicated from the emotional and patriotic crowd. It was a type of righteous anger being shown by average folks who love their country and feared what was happening to it, not militia-type hoodlums or organized left-wing protesters. If the sight of bull-horns makes you uneasy, so be it. How else are they going to communicate with a crowd of that size?
If you want to see examples of real scary hatred watch videos of the organized rock throwing and vandalizing crowds from the left that show up at government Summits and economic conferences wearing black hoods over their faces on a regular basis, or the anti war rallies of the 1960’s when buildings were bombed on college campuses, bank buildings, and government enclaves. I never saw a Tea party participant throw a pie in the face of a member of Congress the way a student did to Bill Gates or tried to do to Ann Coulter one time during a speaking engagement at Columbia University. Speaking of Ann, I never saw the kind of hatred exhibited at Tea party rallies the way it was demonstrated at Ann’s recent appearance on a Canadian college campus. I never heard a Tea party protester say they wanted to see a member of Congress die from Rectal Cancer the way Sean Penn said he wanted to see happen to Tea party participants in the most venomous and hate filled type of comment I can remember. I heard and read the same tone expressed in a comment about George W Bush which compared him to Hitler and encouraged his assassination. I also heard the same evil hostility expressed many times about people I consider great Americans like the late Rev Jerry Falwell, Ronald Reagan, Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, and many commentators at Fox News. That viscious hostility, however isn’t righteous anger it’s the same evil hatred from the depths of hell that have resulted in the deaths of millions in concentration, labor, and re-education camps down through history. It didn’t come from the heart as in the case of righteous anger it came from the minds of the Godless people who believe and practice Liberalism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism or any other far left ideology, that needs to deprive individuals of their God given right to freedom before they can gain control over them the way John Dingel explained health Care as always having been about controlling peoples lives.
Now we’re starting to see liberals and the mainstream media classify any criticism of Barrack Obama’s policies as hate speech and that to me is terrifying because these so called educated political operatives on the left posing as journalists are clueless when it comes to differentiating righteous and justified anger from plain old fashion, satanically inspired, evil hate. And that should give everybody who loves freedom cause for concern.

Up until this weekend only those of us who follow politics closely knew today’s Democrat Party was not the party of Franklin Roosevelt and John F Kennedy as a new extreme radical left leadership had taken over and even Democrat members of the House were forced to acknowledge through their vote Sunday that their party had truly been high jacked by the Michael Moore and Sean Penn wing of the party. The head pounding tactics of President Obama and the House Leadership were evident for all to see Sunday. In fact I could almost hear the screams coming from backrooms and wondered who was about to get shot in the kneecaps.
It was also clear that for the first time many Democrats had no choice but to vote with members on the other side of the aisle in a remarkable show of genuine bipartisanship, due to the fact that 37% of the country disapproved of the legislation and wanted them to start over from scratch. But Barrack, Nancy, and Steny (the Three Stooges) would have none of it because Obama’s Presidency was at stake and after all that’s much more important than the Country, right?
When confronted with the socialist trends of his party, Al Sharpton openly admitted when being interviewed this weekend that people who voted Obama into office were indeed voting for socialism. At least Mr Sharpton was honest even if he is an idiot. Ted Kennedy was always honest about his big government intentions as well and Barney Frank never held back a thing when he said his plan was for the Government to be our Landlord.
Now every other Democrat who wants to remain a Democrat is being forced to defend Socialism by saying things like “socialism is a good thing” which by the way is the same thing as saying “freedom is a bad thing” and so are elections. One of the first things that happened in the Soviet Union, China, Cuba and yes even when the National Socialist Party ran Germany was a government take-over of health-care followed by the end of free elections. This time its going to be the dismantling of the greatest health care system ever know to man followed by “Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants” because the Democrats are going to need a new block of voters eager for entitlements quickly. And if that happens they won’t need to cancel elections at least not for a while
In the past it was always frustrating for conservatives to debate liberals because we knew they couldn’t be honest about who they really were and what they really believed and how much they disliked this country. Now we know the truth which means the 2010 Congressional elections promises to be a real Turkey Shoot as long as all freedom loving Americans take part in the hunt and bag these lying weasels while their in the open with the largest bullseyes imaginable on their backs. Traditional Democrats, like I used to be, have been forced into an impossible situation by their Marxist/Socialist/Man Child president and his supporters on the far left, and now they have no where to run.

I believe that Mar 21, 2010 will go down in history as another one of those “Infamy” days we’ll talk about forever and be as potent and as formidable in our minds as Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Both of these events were significant turning points in the life of the nation and the generations that witnessed and lived through them. Such will be the case I believe of the Signing into law of Socialized Medicine, an event which will forever be noted as the Day the Government assumed control of our bodies and every aspect of our lives through that new power point of control.
In the eleventh hour of the battle preceding the final vote it became apparent that it was nothing more than Democrats gathering around Obama to save his Presidency when most I’m sure were reluctant to approve the legislation that is destined to be the final spike in the Capitalistic engine that has created economic freedom and prosperity for so many down through the years. I do not included in that group of responsible but pressured legislators Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid because those were the thugs holding the hammer over wavering heads and have been ever since they regained Control of Congress and brought about the financial meltdown that led to the recession and massive unemployment we are now experiencing. Hopefully Barney and friends will be replaced by their challengers like front runner Earl Sholley in the Massachusetts Fourth Congressional District who must be smelling blood in the water this morning. In fact the first thing I read on the “fateful morning after” was an article posted at Bloomberg.Com that says the US is at risk of losing its AAA Rating in the Bond Market and that. Moody’s investors Service is predicting the U.S. will spend more on debt service as a percentage of revenue this year than any other top-rated country except the U.K. Move over Venezuela and the rest of the Third World, here we come.
Some of my Democrat friends think that line of “Apocalyptic reasoning is nonsense, while I think it is nothing more than plain common sense. How could the President of the United States want to destroy the greatest Health Care System in the World by destroying the economic incentives that have resulted in people living longer and surviving ailments that were once insurmountable like Cancer, Small Pox, Malaria and a wide array of improvements in the management of Cardiovascular Disease?
My father is 95 years old and just returned home from surgery for a double hernia that relieved the intense discomfort he has been suffering with for some time. After weighing the risks with his doctors and family it was decided to go forward with the surgery even thought it was the fourth time he has gone under the knife in three years. Because of advances in medicine patients seem to be able to handle the anesthesia much better now than previously when elderly patients would be prone to take a beating mentally as well as physically from the anesthesia alone. I can’t help think that if this were to have happened a few years from now it’s quite possible that some faceless government bureaucrat would have stood in the way of such a procedure and my family’s happiness as well as his abilities to enjoy a few more years of zestful living. We will soon be losing our freedom to choose in one of the most important responsibilities or I should say areas of stewardship that we have and that is the care and management of our bodies. Isn’t that what the fight over Roe vs Wade was all about only the people that supported Roe are for the most part people who are now advocating this massive government takeover of the Greatest Health Care System in the World as well as our beloved bodies?
For the remainder of this year all members of Congress are going to be identified by whether they voted for or against the legislation. Although the anger out there is real its not being generated from drugged out radicals or committed leftists who have always hated this country and frequently resort to rock throwing and the use of molotoff coctails and vandalism at there demonstrations. Its evolving from average Moms and Dads, Veterans, and hard working folks who understand the greatness of America and its history and actually pick up there trash at rallies.
They don’t understand how Americans were willing to give up their freedom by voting for Obama’s agenda of change as he promised and has never wavered from. Yes…the man raised by Communists and extreme America hating radicals has never wavered from his plan to redistribute and destroy individual wealth. In fact after putting control of one sixth of the Economy under control of the US Government he is well on his way to achieving that end. But now he needs a new block of voters quickly since he just alienated so many which is why the next special on his Socialist Agenda Platter will surely be “Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants” served with plenty of pork and sweetheart deals for wavering members of his own party along with a side dish of head pounding similar to what occurred preceding the Health Care Vote
But fear not folks, the sleeping giant is fully awake now i.e. freedom loving Americans with traditional values and they are really angry now as we will see during the months leading up to the Congressional elections in November. In fact even my own representative in the Fourth Congressional District Barney Frank is less of a sure thing today than he was yesterday for continuing his thirty year reign of terror on Americans even if he does have the support of self-interested local fishermen. Yesterday the world changed whether you realize it or not, but even supporters o f Barney Frank are not going to enjoy being treated like my father’s World War II friend in England who was on the waiting list for routine surgery for over a year before they got to him. “You can always go to Costa Rica like Rush Limbaugh said he would if you want better treatment and better attention, as long as you have the money of course. If not pick a number and stand in line folks not to see your doctor , of course, but that pointy headed bureaucrat over their wearing nose glasses who will remind you how you feel when you go to the Post Office, the Registry of Motor Vehicle, or any other government agency and that is simply a crying shame and a great American tragedy.
