Just a Humble Analysis

The ABC episode for President Obama's universal health care package?

I pulled out about twenty-five minutes of clips....about 50 percent ABC info sales and 50 percent Obama sales.

Frankly, after watching the whole thing....I kept wondering what exactly did they tell you that really explained the entire package. From the clips....there just wasn't anything new.

I feel like a guy in need of a new truck whose gone to the Ford lot, walked around a F-150, but never got the spec's from the sales guy or cranked the car or driven it around the block. The image looks good, but I have no idea what the real charge is or how much is bogus from the sales guy. In fact, it was like a game with ABC....trying to tell you the least amount of information and then making you think you'd read an entire book.

The ABC sales job? The journalists involved in this project can probably get signed with QVC and start selling six-inch fishing worms via the internet. Acting in the interest of the public? If they were.....then they have lost the compass bearing and haven't seen the public in years. Were they truthful? I don't think they were worried about that.....like some doped up hippy chick....they just grinned and kept chatting.

Based on numbers.....ABC kinda gambled and lost on a massive crowd watching it. They will likely admit that they didn't do this for the numbers.....but when you really capture a dismal number of the viewing audience....then you have to ask why. This "why" is what the gang really can't grasp.

So with such a big effort by the President, and a lousy sales job.....have we come to the end of the "magic flute song"?

If I were ABC, I wouldn't invite the President back for a couple of months....and hope he regains his magic touch.

As for the health care package? The senate is the killer on this whole episode. I don't think that thy have a majority currently. In fact, I would suggest barely 44 senators (that includes four Republicans) support the President's plan in any fashion. What Reid cannot afford here....is to bring it up and then wake up to realize that he couldn't get 51 votes. If it doesn't make it in 2009....then it's basically finished for at least twenty-four months.

Exorcism on the Gay Dude

Somewhere on Youtube....and I won't even link it because of my ethics......is this clip of some young teenage kid who went to some ministers and they did some exorcism to dump this gayness that the kid had.

I watched the clip.....and I honestly wanted to laugh. I frown on the fringe elements of religion. They are more of a circus show, than reality. They sell something that people want to buy, but it's really entertainment.

As for the kid? He actually buys into this stuff and allowed himself to messed with mentally, with no real results. He's looking for magical answer. The church there? It pumped folks up and probably was the best entertainment they'd had in years.....thats the sad part of this story.

1201 Pages

I paused over the final product of the climate bill in congress......1201 pages.

Basically....not a single representative or senator will have read it. If you standing there, and were honest....you could not vote for what you have not read.

Currently, it appears that about twenty percent of the Democratic representatives have problems with this....especially those from the south. This should be a slam....easily done by a majority of representatives....yet, they really aren't in support of it.

So my prediction is that it will come.....and go....missing by more than five percent.

I'd like to make a rule in congress....no bill or law more than twenty-five pages....under any circumstances. A guy ought to be given a chance overnight to read such a document, and twenty-five pages would be a honest bit of reading. You walk in the next day.....pass the bill if you believe in it, or dump it.
