    Got this in an email....Lots of truth,,,,And it came to pass....

    "A PASTORS WIFE'S LETTER

    How's this for apocalyptic literature.This was written by a pastor's wife in biblical prose as a commentary of current events. It is Brilliant.


    And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as "The One". He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you. My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my associtation with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you with Hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed." And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what "The One"would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed.

    And "The One" said "We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"

    Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the people said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And the people said, "Show us the money!" And then He said, "Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody"

    And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me? You're going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" And "The One" ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.

    One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was banished from the kingdom!

    Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!"

    Then "The One" said, "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes."
    And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One" said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!" And the people said, "Hallelujah!! Show us the money!"

    Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed. And He said, "I shall mandate employer- funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited health care and medicine and transportation to the clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!" Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas." And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?" Then "The One"said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates." So "The One" said, "Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!"

    Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi- lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And the people said, "Hallelujah!" And they made him King!

    And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl.

    And more of the people were without a means of support. Then "The One" said, "I am"The One-The Messiah" and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more..." And the people said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced.


    Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!" And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon "The One" and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope.

    And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built. And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!"

    But it was too late, and their homeland was no more."

    "And there was weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, but it was to no avail."

    From out of the East came the Four Horsemen, and their names were China, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Iran. And they set upon the people till they were forced to be slaves to the new order. The Israelites, having been abandoned by the Great One, looked the other way.

    And the Earth stood still, and the sun shone only on the Eastern Hemisphere.

    It's our own fault. While we relaxed the dogs crept into the manger.

    And there will be hell to pay getting them out. Especially since so many supposed normal people have puke blood coursing through their brain.

    But his numbers are dropping faster than a .22 rimfire trajectory.

    I am related to and know many many young adults that just don't relate to World War II, the Cold War, VietNam, hell even Ronald Regan, all they know is Texting, Ipods, Resturanting with the kids, Reality TV, and these are 30 year olds....

    I know just as many academics, teachers, professors,.... self proclaimed intellectuals that have never had their nose out of a book re life experience.

    and these are the voters that tipped the scales to the Obama side...

    and they still don't get it, scary huh.....

    America is suffering from a busted credit bubble, aggravated by the loss of our Manufacturing base to "Globalization" (encouraged and expeditied by our own Govt.) the further loss of our construction jobs (Housing) and Automotive jobs (never to return)....

    And now Obama actually transforming America into a Marxist, Socialist form of Government.....

    I am afraid that it will, at this point, take radical action to get everything even close to "back to normal" if possible at all....

    Watching television and the talking heads has become very depressing....

    America is now paying the piper for 60+ (since WWII) years of prosperity, high SOL and the last 30 years of uncontrolled excess....

    Interesting times....

    Chuckles, I've never seen anything put so well in a nutshell as you did in your post. Academics and techies who have never served in the military (and whose family members have not) are our biggest problem.

    America is already gone. We are only fighting to slow the rot. Look at the fools running America right now. This could not have happened if we weren't already putrid. I listened to some of Palins speech. Nothing but traditional American values. Then I read the liberal responses. They hate her. It is an irrational hatred. A hatred of everything America was. A hatred of freedom itself. America is already a rotting corpse. Obama and Pelosi are proof of that.

    If we vote & get the dems out of office in 2010, we might have a chance of turning the tide--but we must get the word out. I served in the military and have wrote my reps that are in office. I also sent them a "TEA" bag to let them know that I was not happy with the way they were spending my tax money.

    One begins to wonder if the small voice of reason present in this country is enough to overcome the fools who are destroying it, and if ineed it is too late.

    "what a wonderful world this could be,
    If only everyone thought like me"

    The last six months have been frightening; now, what's ahead of us is really frightening. We have now 100% control by the left (Executive, Senate & the House of Representatives). They will erode state rights (10th Amendment); 1st Amendment and 2nd Amendment rights. We couldn't stop spending more in the past 6 month versus all of presidential & congressional (combined) history up to then. It's what we're creating for our grandchildren will make us the most hated generation. BT-100dc

    The health insurance industry is part of the problem. Lawyers are another. Bear in mind that the cost of malpractice insurance is unreasonable. Why? Because the damages awarded are off the planet.

    If a Lawyer secures a 3 million dollar award, he puts away a cool million for himself and sometimes more. And, since the judges all came from the ranks of lawyers, there is not much help there.

    Don't look for Washington to fix this one, since they are all lawyers too.

    A damn shame: a busload of lawyers going over a cliff, with one empty seat.

    From Rasmussen;

    "The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 28% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12. That’s the lowest rating yet recorded for President Obama"

    If you actually sent a tea bag to a politician, I can't believe the Hussein controlled FBI hasn't knocked on your door yet accusing you of mail fraud and terrorism.

    HM,,,,how is the health insurance industry such a big part of the problem,,,,the bigger problem is that people EXPECT to be provide for,,,,you want to pay $10 for your doctors services and then bitch about the cost keeps going up,,,,yes insurance is getting expensive, but they have to make a profit to stay in business and to be able to continue to pay claims on a risk that is constantly going up with the doctors, due to the fear of malpractice suits, and the society as a whole, because of aging and usage, utilizing the services more every day

    Beware of FEMA

    <em>Military Poised to Help FEMA Battle Swine Flu Outbreak
    The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to set vaccination priorities for certain groups Wednesday during a meeting in Atlanta as the Pentagon prepares to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency tackle a potential outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall.</em>


    <em>The Pentagon is preparing to make troops available if necessary to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency tackle a potential outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, FOX News has confirmed.

    This comes as a government panel recommends certain groups be placed at the front of the line for swine flu vaccinations this fall, including pregnant women, health care workers and children six months and older.

    The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices panel also said those first vaccinated should include parents and other caregivers of infants; non-elderly adults who have high-risk medical conditions, and young adults ages 19 to 24. The panel, whose recommendations typically are adopted by federal health officials, voted to set vaccination priorities for those groups Wednesday during a meeting in Atlanta.

    Obama administration officials told Congress that H1N1 vaccinations won't be available for several months.

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates is preparing to sign an order authorizing the military to set up five regional teams to deal with the potential outbreak of H1N1 influenza if FEMA requests help.

    A senior U.S. defense official told FOX News that the plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the FEMA. No final decision has been reached on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it likely would include personnel from all branches of the military.

    It is not known how many troops would be needed and whether they would come from the active duty or the National Guard and Reserve forces.

    In the event of a major outbreak, civilian authorities would lead any relief efforts, the official said. The military, as it would for a natural disaster or other significant emergency situation, could provide support and fulfill any tasks that civilian authorities could not, such as air transport or testing of large numbers of viral samples from infected patients.

    As a first step, military leaders have asked Gates to authorize planning for the potential assistance.

    Orders to deploy actual forces would be reviewed later, depending on how much of a health threat the flu poses this fall, the officials said.</em>

    The doctors keep getting sued with no restrictions or caps on the amounts,

    the Insurance companies keep raising the fees to the doctors to cover the lawsuit losses,

    the hospitals keep raising their rates to cover the rising cost of the doctors, their insurance and the cost of medicine and upkeep,

    it is literally the proverbial "dog chasing his tail"

    other side of the coin is we, USA, have the best Medical care, as in
    Doctors, nurses, hospitals in the world,

    and that is a good thing, if you can afford it or are on Medicare....

    The industry needs to police itself as in "regulation",it does not appear to be happening.

    Runaway cost for hospitalization is approaching that of our melted down Financial system....

    Only in America is it this good.....

    The insurance industry is a monster. Somehow I feel that there is a wee possibility for some of the same type of abuses that brought the fnancial industry down.Lush High dollar resort seminars, executive bonus excess, and stockholder dividend priorities could very well be present here.

    I don't claim to be an expert in this area, but the Decade of Greed surely didn't miss this nice ripe opportunity. Maybe I'm wrong and all insurance people are altruistic saints.

    Enlighten me.
