What a Glorious morning!

The odds that I will be forced by the government to help kill unborn babies or euthanize old people are significantly reduced…

Isn’t this a kind of David VS Goliath story?

While the chances of the elderly being able to get medical treatment they need have not improved (Medicare STILL needs to be fixed.) at least the rest of you wont be subjected to the same
difficulty finding doctors who will accept government rates for their work.

From today’s readings in the Roman Liturgy of The Hours:

I have swallowed up my enemies; I rejoice in my victory. There is no Holy One like the lord, there is no Rock like our God.
Speak boastfully no longer, nor let arrogance issue from your mouths. For an all knowing God is the Lord, a God who judges deeds.
The bows of the mighty are broken while the tottering gird on strength.

1st Samuel 2:1-10

Satchel Paige:  If you hear footsteps behind you, don’t look back. They might be gaining on you.

Hear the footsteps Barak? They’re gaining on you. Speak boastfully no longer, nor let more arrogance issue from your mouth. You too Rahm.

Hopefully, a few people will take a lesson from this.
When you get sick and tired of your revisionist vestry, and your revisionist delegates for diocesan convention, it is not the time to complain, it is the time to run against them.  You might be surprised how many others in your congregation are also sick and tired.

And can you hear that giant whirring sound??  The one created by Senator Ted Kennedy spinning at about 1,000 RPM’s inside his casket?  Needs to be sampled and set to music…

Perhaps Mary Jo Kopechne can at last rest in peace.

Now if Boxer, Pelosi and Reid (to name just a few)could just be voted out as well ..... and be replaced by conservative fiscally minded candidates. This should be a wake up call to both parties.

Matt,
Once again, I’m delighted to find myself in complete and hearty agreement with you.  We may not always agree on things like biblical interpretation or Reformed theology, but we can nonetheless make common cause in the Culture War.  Abortion on demand is an unspeakable and inexcusable evil.

TJ (#4),
I agree with you too.  But I’ll just add that in big upsets like this one, timing is everything.  Brown was the right man in the right place at the right time, when disgust with the Dems and Obama’s phone health care plan and hypocritical politicians in general was mounting.  Hopefully, it still hasn’t peaked but will continue to grow and produce a whole slew of similar big upsets in November.

But the timing of angry waves of “throw the bums out” feeling at the parish and diocesan level in TEC operates on their own schedule, which aren’t necessarily linked to what’s happening in secular politics.

The way things are going, if it continues, then the Democrats may loose the majority in both the house and senate.  Then what would Obama do?  He would have nothing but his bully pulpit to deliver his teleprompter assertive verbage.  Wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t drop out.  I’ll be praying that way, but we must pray also that somebody raises up suitable candidates.  Don’t have much hope for that to come from the Republicans, but that could change too.  Maybe KJS would resign also!  Developing….

If everything in Washington and the country has been the fault of Bush and the Republicans, how come Scott Brown (R) wins in MA where there are three Democrat voters for each Republican voter? It doesn’t sound like it is Bush’s fault now, since voters find hope in voting for Brown.

I see that Obama and his Democrats now need to borrow another $1.9T to meet government bills. That will go over well with voters this year.

One swallow does not make a summer.  I have a feeling that Massachusetts voters, and perhaps US voters overall, want a moderate approach to issues.  Bush and company were right of center; Obama and his followers are way left.  Sen-elect Brown is somewhat right of center, and is a corrective to the hard-left lean of the administration and of congressional leadership.  I do not think that this is a portent of a swing far to the right, although as a “crunchy con,” I think that we need it.
