Careful What You Wish For

Things are looking good in liberal la-la land. Life is good for the big government types and socialist sympathizers. Ah, but be careful what you wish for. Mid term elections are about sixteen months away.

The democrats have secured their coveted 60 seats in the Senate. Norm Coleman gave up the fight and sent funny man Al Franken to the Hill. Be careful what you wish for. All policies clearly now belong to the democrats and the President. There is no one else to blame for the expenses, off the rails spending and bureaucrat busting behemoths like socialized medicine.

Sotomayor looks like a lock for the high court. But, be careful what you wish for. This is a woman that repeated several times that a Latino woman with her experiences could come to better decisions than an experienced white man. Most of the high profile decisions that she has been a part of have been sent back to her court. Wait a minute....aren't most of the members of the Senate and the House older, experienced white men? Careful!

Hold on to your band aids, America. Here comes government run health care. Is anyone really wishing for this one? Scan the globe for other places far and wide that have given the ole socialized medicine a go. You will find no innovation, no profit and no cutting edge care. What you will find is long waiting periods for procedures, more paperwork than the closing of a home mortgage and a shortage of qualified workers in the medical field. But, if you reside in the Senate or House you can just keep the coverage you currently have.

Seems like the ultimate wish list is being checked off one by one. Sometimes things are not always as they seem. I have always heard to be careful what you wish for, and for the ones that voted for this man... you are about to get it.
