This is not intended as a coldhearted statement, but rather an observation that is crying out for recognition.
Dead kids, property destruction, general disregard for our fellow man. All of it resulting from exactly the opposite message of what founded our great nation. Our current bizarro world would not be complete without death being the 'preferred' alternative to a woman not being able to play around unfettered by the inconvenience of pregnancy, without the labor unions calling for the 'rights' of workers to be protected by placing shackles on their legs, or the game played by progressive thinkers which sets rules that define taking as morally preferable to voluntary concession.
There could hardly be a dry eye out there from parents of 5 to 10 year old children after yesterday's tragedy in CT. In fact, anyone with a soul left in these dark times must feel for those parents and family members who had only days before had the highest dreams for their happy little treasures. Even the souls scarred with the axiomatic wrist cutting belief that abortions are OK, or those with sociological defects that believe that honor killing or personal slavery is ever appropriate, must hide their eyes lest the world witness their hypocrisy.
The world is doing its pole shift, not in the geological sense, but in logic and reasoning and common sense. Our civilization is running its moral clock backward.
What stretch of the imagination is it to see a people who are immersed in a culture of death such as that experienced in Detroit, which sports a near 38% abortion rate, and leaves a lesson for those who survive, that life is not sacred? How can we be surprised at the destruction of hot dog carts, and tents, and personal property by union members who have been told that "its OK to break things in your fight to retain dominion over your brother"? What level of coercive (violence based) taxation is enough for ANY political party, when each scheme rewarding some, must be borne on the backs of others, involuntarily?
Are we as a nation ready to appropriately answer these questions?

A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

Some lawmakers may not understand the power they wield. :"I'm very pleased that we are continuing to have an ongoing discussion," said Haines, the chair of the House Health Policy Committee. "It has been very difficult. I don't think it's anybody's fault in Michigan. It's been very difficult to get answers out of Washington."Then do what is best, and tell the feds to take their mandate and send it back to Europe where it has provided inadequate health options for decades.
Details, including the requirements and the costs to taxpayers, need to be worked out, she said. Still, Haines said she was leaning toward a state-run exchange.
"We have until Friday," she said. "I've been here all day making phone calls and talking to people. We're all committed to doing what's best for Michigan."
There is no authority given by the constitution to the federal government to force citizens to purchase a product.

From the NFIB:
"Although we fell short of the number of signatures required, the results are unprecedented in recent Michigan history," said Charlie Owens, NFIB State Director. "Critics who are dismissive of our efforts would do well to consider this fact in light of ongoing efforts that will continue through the elections in November."
Owens said that most ballot petition drives use paid petition signature gathering firms, spend millions of dollars and have a much longer time frame than this effort. "The average petition drive has six months to gather signatures and spends about $1.5 million. "We had about 11 weeks and spent about 2 percent of that amount and we still managed to obtain a record number of signatures," said Owens. "This is a battle, not the war; we will carry on with this fight in the courts, with legislation and at the ballot box in November."
The NFIB was the only state business organization to participate in the petition drive. They at least tried. So did a great many of us in a great many parts of the state. My own count nowhere near the efforts of some others even locally. One NFIB member brought in a couple hundred by herself, and that was in a first time of signature gathering. Others in the 912 groups and Tea Party organizations worked hard as well. And even those who felt it was too much of an uphill battle gave it a shot, not because they thought it would happen, but because it was worth it.
We have truly committed citizens who are willing to spend their time on those things that matter for our country. THEIR time.
Sadly, this report brings news of others who should be happy about the efforts made, yet find some way to sour on the unselfishness of the effort's organizers, participants, and the very effort itself.
