Whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad.

And it's certainly being proven true in our society today.

From the woman who sued Wal-Mart because they dismissed her for screaming that Faggots should die and go to hell because "they're not right in the head." who maintains her right to do so, and thankfully was ruled against. To the latest attempt to repeal "Obamacare" we're becoming increasingly mad as a culture.

The latest attempt by Rep Ryan is to turn Medicare into a cash broker to dispense "vouchers" for insurance directly to the companies themselves.

This of course, would effect me directly since it would take effect one year before I am to turn 65.  I object.

There are many grounds on which to object, and if we'd just recognize the fact that we're amazingly good at separating insurance companies and medical costs, yet incapable of separating church and state, which is of course ridiculous, we'd be halfway to conquering the problem.
