Recently I did something that I had not done since eating a rotten apple in 1962 at an orphanage where I was a weekly big brother.
I lost my lunch after I had eaten it.
Without going into any gross detail I was trying to avoid getting sick in my car. I got out without parking it but didn’t make it to the garage.
Losing one’s cookies as they sometimes call it is one of the most unpleasant things any human being can suffer through.
That’s why I vowed 51 years ago never to do it again. I guess never was too long a time.
I had an interesting vision during the grotesque episode.
A woman who assists my wife with Christmas decorations grabbed me from behind and positioned her knees to brace me as I leaned forward.
She is a very strong and athletic-looking beauty whose strength helped me find a small realm of security in the midst of my digestive distress.
I have repeatedly stated how much I enjoy movies.
I had this vision of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio on the deck of the Titanic in an enchanting scene from the movie of the same name.
He is holding her from behind as she leans forward over the rail and feels the power of the wind and the warmth of the setting sun on her face and upper body.
The only trouble with my vision was I was Kate and Tiffany was Leonardo.
That brings me in a circuitous route to ObamaCare.
I had really thought about calling this essay the USS Obamanic...a real disaster movie.
Obama would have the Captain Smith role as the valiant ship’s captain that went down with his ship of state while taking millions of us with him.
There is no way that will ever happen.
Our ship may sink but there is no way this leader will even be on board.
Many films have memorable lines that I often use to illustrate a point or enhance one of my stories.
In Sunset Boulevard with Gloria Swanson and William Holden, the deranged aging actress makes her final appearance near the end of the movie after having shot Holden’s real character to death and says:
All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.
I think William Shakespeare anticipated Washington D. C. when he wrote the world is a stage and we all must play a part.
I say this because I am convinced that Cecil DeObama has been directing everything that has happened to the American people with regard to its complicated health care system.
Of course at this juncture he seems a disengaged director who would rather be on the golf links than stuck in the oval director’s chair.
But that is part of his genius.
He is also the lead actor in this disaster movie.
Like Robert Redford, Obama has made the smooth transition from an actor impersonating a United States Senator to playing the most important role of his life and ours as well from behind the scenes.
The president’s highly touted health care system, aka ObamaCare has been a colossal failure from the start.
Obama looks the part of a buffoon…an ignorant fool whose right hand does not have any idea what his left-hand has been up to.
But that is all part of his script.
Despite his lack of any real academic achievement the man is a genius in manipulating people to perform just the way he wants…even if it is by misdirection.
This goes doubly for the Republicans.
It has not been his ignorance or disinterest that have created an untenable situation fraught with uncertainty, fear and broken lives.
These exchanges are doing just what they were designed to do—FAIL!
Obama has surrounded himself with political hacks, pettifogging lawyers, imbeciles–think Pelosi–and zombie-like thugs from the central casting division of the Democratic Party.
There is no way these disparate unprofessionals could construct or lead their way out of a paper bag, let alone absorb 16% of the US economy and make it a workable system.
A single payer system like Medicaid has always been his goal.
As the Wall Street Journal said on October 30th, Americans are losing their coverage by political design.
This could be the biggest act of overt political fraud in the history of the country.
Are Americans to blame for this public film?
Too many believed his calculated and repeated lies about keeping their insurance plans and their doctors but hopefully they will awaken from their slumber and realize this is what he wanted all along.
And they sadly bought his message, not once but twice.
None of this has been by accident but the coming home to roost of the liberals longtime goal that everyone has essentially the same health coverage and that government is the only institution that can ensure that it is done equally…except for them and their friends of course.
Such political and economic control is the driving force of the Affordable Care Act not the health and well-being of the American people.
Unless this monstrosity is pulled from the screens across America we can expect the worst to happen.
In two years when the deed has been done to us and we no longer have any viable health insurance and less actual care, he will be able to add an Oscar to his mantle right next to his Nobel Peace Prize.
Had Obama put as much effort into governing as he has done in playing politics with 300 million American lives he could have gone down as one of the great presidents of all times.
Sadly true historians will see him as an abject failure who had an epitaph penned for him by John Greenleaf Whiter centuries ago…
The saddest words of tongue and pen are what might have been.
