Liberty for Security

Representative Ryan called it "Fiscal Frankenstein", and now the beast lives despite the best efforts of the GOP congressmen and racist, spittle-ridden "teabaggers" (evidently not all spitting is the same). March madness, indeed.

When addressing whether to harshly interrogate our enemies Obama once said, "a democracy as resilient as ours must reject the false choice between our security and our ideals". He and most of his party now appear fine with giving away some liberty for health care security, an irony insofar as many of them spent nearly eight years hammering Bush with the Ben Franklin quote (or a close proximity). Having the IRS enforce mandated purchases? No problem now.

But tally ho, onward to social justice. I'm hoping Obama shifts his ire to the car insurance companies--I could really use a break on my auto right now. And while he's at it the utilities are a little high, too. It's only right that my neighbor should chip in his fair share. He's a Dem after all.
