"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Forget the Nobel Prize and Remember Your Health Care

Following the surprise announcement of Obama's Nobel Peace Prize, it was inevitable that the blogosphere would light up with both accolades and outrage.

This bluster needs to fade as quickly as it appeared, though. The Nobel Peace Prize means nothing to the US, and does not affect the US people one way or the other. What is important, and what needs to be remembered (as Quite Rightly at Bread upon the Waters has so cool-headedly reminded us) is that Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and other hard Leftists are crafting a series of bills that will take away the American people's health care choices, that will decrease the quality of American health care, that will cripple the American economy, and that will place us all in crippling debt.

The Nobel nonsense should not make us lose focus from our opposition to these bills and proposals. These proposals will affect all of us, while the Nobel Committee's idiotic and shallow decision is merely one more thing to roll our eyes at. Once instituted, these schemes are enormously difficult to disassemble even as they fail to accomplish their stated goals and collapse the government beneath mountains of debt. Remember it is likely the "health care reform" will be crafted behind our backs in closed door meetings, tacked onto HR 1586, and then sped through the Senate.

Contact Congress. Voice your opposition to these bad plans.
