Rationed Bandwidth, Encroaching Shadows

No, it’s not what the Congressional Black Hole of Rationing All Things is considering (except shhhhh, don’t say it too loudly), it’s been what’s been going on at the praxeum. Hubster is on a publishing deadline and the only computer with the software for his music is ALSO the computer that is the portal to the internettuberoooooz. So I snatch time when I can.

The effort to maintain a joyful Christmas spirit is tough this year. Despite the never-ending war on Christmas, this season brings out the worse in those who hate the light. Now Obama’s dream of hope and change servitude for all looms darkly on the horizon. The wolf in sheep’s clothing is bearing his teeth; the mask is beginning to slip. Peter Wehner (h/t HotAir):

Mr. Obama has revived the worst impressions of the Democratic party – profligate and undisciplined, arrogant, lovers of big government, increasers of taxes. The issues and narrative for American politics in the foreseeable future has been set — limited government versus exploding government, capitalism versus European style socialism, responsible and measured policies versus reckless and radical ones.

Michelle Malkin has the list (part I, part II) of Democrats who have accepted bribes in a variety of forms – all to pass this abomination. At least one (now former) Democrat has a shred of moral fiber.

Elizabeth, The Anchoress, sees a coup in process. Quiet, sneaky, at a time when the people’s attention is focused to home and hearth, the thief plots to pillage, burn and worse. One thief turns into another and then another, and soon you have governmental strangle-hold “agents of change” hoards of barbaric Vandals sweeping through, destroying everything in sight. The current administration will be remembered for it’s scorched earth policy in regards to “representative” government. The Founding Fathers would be appalled.

Smitty of The Other McCain says “This ‘Brave New World’ is not why I have served my country these years.”

And Pundette Jill asks what we all are wondering, “What part of ‘We don’t want it’ don’t they understand?” The polls that Obama and his minions live and die by are tanking over this bill – suddenly they don’t care about their numbers – I fear something darker is afoot.

To quote G. K. Chesterton,

The issue is now clear. It is between light and darkness, and everyone must choose his side.

UPDATE: Michelle adds even moreBeltway Christmas: Cash for corruptocrats.

Bob Belvedere:

Harry Reid is a tyrant.

He has violated his oath of office. And anyone in the Senate who votes for this tyrannical measure will have violated his or her own oaths. This is pure lawlessness. Erick is spot-on when he says ‘We Are No Longer A Nation Of Laws’. We are now a Nation Of Men—a Nation Of Tyrannical Men.

    Sir: Fifty years ago about twenty miles north of Seattle on Highway 99 was a small sign in the bushes along the west side of the highway that said, “AMERICA, REPENT OR PERISH”. I was a new Bible Christian at the time and wondered how it might play out in the future. Nine/Eleven, Katrina, Obama and a tyrannical central government plus other mentionables is the beginning of worse judgments to come without a national rejection of the slaughter of the unborn, sexual perversions of all sorts, idolatry and worship and service given to Satan. We can send letters and emails and make phone calls to our leaders as well as march on Washington D.C. in protest of their actions, but it will accomplish nothing. We are now reaping the result of an apathetic and ignorant citizenry that was too busy tending to their families, sports events and entertainment to keep an eye on the government too. Like Ninevah of old which repented in sack cloth and ashes at the preaching of Jonah and was spared destruction by God’s judgment, that’s the only thing that can save us now. However, what God is now saying via his true contemprary prophets is that repentance is not on the average American’s mind. So, as individuals we can fulfill for ourselves and families the promise in II Chronicles 7:13 & 14.
