Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2013-334: Headlines: Obama Lied, People Died, Eventually

What?  You say you have not seen that headline yet?  You probably won’t.  The cuddled media class knows which side of the bread their butter is on.  When the pain gets to them it will be too late.

As I walked through the bedroom getting dressed for church my wife had the TV on watching the news.  They were interviewing a yuppie from somewhere in Southern California.  I was passing through and didn’t get those details.  What I did hear was how this Obama believer was shocked that, not only was his monthly payment more than doubling and his deductible taking a big jump but he was informed that his insurance company would no longer be offering the option of the PPO.  That is the plan that many of us have held onto because we do not want the impersonal nature of the HMO.  He was not told it would cost more.  He was told it was no longer available.

This is how the Affordable Care Act is made affordable, by decimating the quality.  Oh, wait, it isn’t affordable either.  It sounds like a lose/lose situation to me.

He was in shock.  The president had promised that we could keep the insurance we have.  The promise was that costs would go down.  He quoted the man he helped elect.

Get used to it.  He lied.  People may not be dying today but they will when they cannot find care and are in a gurney in the hall of an ER room, if they can find an ER room and if they have an empty gurney. 

Welcome to the way that Obama has dreamed of transforming America.  Just wait until he gets to immigration.
