country while people feast and walk treadmills on enormous cruise ships
sailing a hundred miles off the coast en route to the Bahamas and
Churches that feed the hungry and house the homeless dare not offend
the conservatives in their midst by suggesting that we also tend the
sick. And the opposition has beaten on garbage cans and whooped and
yelled and alarmed the populace, which they're quite good at. These
people look at a clear blue sky and see a conspiracy.
From there, he implies that any of us who oppose the health care reform would agree with Pat Robertson's stupid remarks about how God is punishing the Haitians.
And your high school civics teacher would not have given you a high
mark for saying, as the Rev. Robertson did, that the earthquake in
Haiti was God's judgment on Vodou. God has tolerated Vodou in
Washington for years and not seen fit to shake the city yet. Priests
and mojo men dance around the Capitol every day, waving skulls on
sticks, scattering their magic powders, trying to stop progress with a
hex, and God is content to observe them. So do we coffee drinkers.
Government is in the hands of realists and in the end we shall prevail.
I don't know how Robertson, mojo men and opponents of ObamaCare all get rapped into one package; following the reasoning is mind-bending. Nothing I could see in the entire piece to challenge the substance of the arguments of ObamaCare opponents.
