Thursday June 25th, 2009 marked the passing of two icons. Farrah Faucet, who died of cancer at 62; and Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, who died at age 50.
While these are tragedies, primarily for those who were considered fans of these individuals, I couldn't help but notice that the media has already turned its programming into memorializing these two individuals with video obituaries and reflection on the lives that they lived.
Meanwhile, the United States is dying and the media has paid little attention, a small ratio in fact, to the the Senators looking to pass a 1 trillion dollar health care reform bill that they feel is "in reach". The last time I checked, we don't even have 1 dollar to spend on this program let alone 1 trillion.
For those that have not taken the time to view the blog site in its entirety, we have included a national debt ticker on the right side of the page. It shows that we as a nation are already 11 trillion dollars+ in debt and the numbers are rising exponentially each day thanks to the stimulus failures and other government bad ideas. With the passage of this health care bill we can consider our futures stolen away, and the death of America well underway. There is no dream left to be had. The future holds nothing but higher taxes and no ability to surface from such debt service. Mediocre health care will abound. The people of this nation will be too far into the system before they realize that this government can't clean up after a hurricane let alone maintain a health care system for over 300 Million people.
In the mean time remember the lives of two individuals who would be two very unknown nothings if it weren't for America and the opportunities to succeed that our nation has provided. Let's see how many Michael Jackson's and Farrah Faucet's find success when all they have in front of them is a 70 percent tax bill and a health care system that would not have even had the resources to extend their lives as long as they lived.
