Big Fat Friday Free For All

Well? Are you ready for it? Have you prepared yourself for the vote to pass healthcare this weekend?

What other horrors are keeping you awake at night? Have you paid your taxes? Are you aware of the capital gains tax increase coming with healthcare if you are "Rich" (AGI above $200K single, $250K Married filing jointly)?

Is your pool busted already by Georgetown losing?

Unburden yourselves in the space provided here!

1. "Health Care Reform" is not. Insurance coverage for those that pay taxes will be more expensive to support those that don't pay taxes.
2. I wish people would leave adequate space between cars on bridges and tunnels so they don't rear end the car in from of them, causing a stoppage in the tunnel I use to get to work.
3. Do you think the housing market will recover with the spring? I believe that house prices are as low as they are going to go. Any other thoughts?

Looking at the second to last paragraph of Article I, section 3 of the Constitution of the United States we see:

"The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present."

Look closely at the second part of the last sentence, particularly the words, "...of the Members present." It doesn't say two thirds of the Senate. If I were a better writer, I believe I could write a novel or screeplay about a President being tried in the Senate and Members "failing to show up" for the vote which sways the vote as those one or two Members' votes were the difference. High intrique? Huh? Huh? Please don't tell me it has been done!

What has become of your weigh-in component of BFFFFA?

Does anyone else find themselves going to Nat'l Review every few hours to check the yes/no status of the votes?

Does anyone else wish those Dems in the House opposed to this would hang tougher as a bloc? I thought we had hope at the beginning of the week, but one by one they've caved.

Does anyone else think the Racers of Murray State have a great name?
How does one even come up with such a name?

Where will the revenues (money) come from to pay for Obamacare?
Unemployment continues to increase with resulting decreases in revenues to pay for Medicare, Social Security, State Taxes and Federal Taxes.

More homes are being foreclosed upon or abandoned. Fewer new homes are being built resulting in a reduced need for building supplies, household furniture and appliances.
Layoffs and business closures in these and many other fields continue to increase. Loss of revenues from sales taxes on these items, business taxes and real estate taxes continue to rise.

The local, state and federal governments will be forced to increase taxes, water and garbage fees and to decrease other services to make up for the lost revenues.

When all these taxes and service fees are increased businesses will be forced to lay off additional people and/or to raise prices in order to sustain a profit. Other businesses will close their doors and move to more tax friendly environments resulting in even higher unemployment and more loss of revenues from an ever shrinking tax base.

Meanwhile, our unqualified president who has never before in his life held a managerial position and our elected representatives from the Democratic Party continue to lie to our uneducated citizenry who believe that the increased cost stemming from Obamacare will be an overall cost savings and a boon to society.

We are witnessing the most pivotal moment in American history. The destruction of the United States of America as a viable economy at the hands of the Democratic Party and those who believe there is such a thing as a free lunch.

It is no longer a matter of if Atlas will shrug, but when Atlas will shrug.

Goodbye America We loved you.
