Excerpt: What brought me to this trip down memory lane, was the impending Supreme Court decision due out tomorrow on Obamacare and two other articles in the news today. Of course Obamacare is the granddaddy of all power grabs by the Federal government, but these other two are just another symptom of how the Liberal left is wearing us down and destroying our freedoms.
The first article relates to DOJ regulations just coming out regarding the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. It seems now, 22 years after the law was enacted, the DOJ believes that the slope must be limited on miniature golf holes and the walkways must be wide enough to accommodate the handicapped. In addition, because the Islam religion considers dogs to be unclean, businesses will be required to admit the blind with their mini horses as guide animals. The bull in the china shop comes to mind and maybe the horse at the table next to me in my favorite restaurant.
The next item is just a recommendation by a government advisory board that is proposing that all obese adults be given intensive counseling to help them get rid of some of their excess fat. At 5’ 9” and 200 lbs, I qualify with a BMI of over 30. No problem, Medicare will pay for the counseling, and I am sure that I will learn a lot more from a government therapist than I have from Dr. Oz, the South Beach and Atkins diet books and even the valuable info garnered from Michelle, our First Lady.
Power versus freedom, that is what elections are all about.
