Time to ready the pitchforks and torches

I’m not advocating sedition mind you, but there comes a time when enough is enough! With the imminent passage of the unwanted montrosity of a Heathcare bill, it seems to me we are in France, circa 1789. I don’t know how many history buffs there are out there, but for those of you who are not aware, the Big Event in 1789 was the French Revolution and the storming of the Bastille.

I have been to Paris. I’ve been to Bastille Square. I’ve also been inside the dungeon where Marie Antoinette was held prisoner until she lost her head. Literally. Not a very pleasant place.

With King Louis the XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette fully ensconced in the Senate and House, and the Messiah watching over them, I fully expect to hear the words ” let them eat cake.” Or did I miss that one. The obliviously of the “Big 3” to the wishes of the 73% of Americans outside their doorstep is tantamount to the same situation in France. The power-hungry, narcissistic attitudes of all three boggle the mind, and their mentality of “we know what’s best for you, will of the people be damned” is a recipe for potential unpleasantness after this Healthcare passage.

Tom Harkin, Barack Obama, and other left-wingers, per Erick Erickson of RedState, are asking this question:

If Republicans are so sure passing health care reform will doom the Democrats in November, why not help them pass it?

See what I mean. These guys have all lost their heads. Figuratively.

I’ve been to the costume shop. You can get a cheap, plastic pitchfork there for about $5. And they also carry those torches people use for Hawaiian luau parties. You can get yourself some good protest gear for about $15. Not a bad price. Supplies for my signs at the Tea Parties cost me more than that.

By the way. When Pelosi finally is booted out, I’ve got dibs on her 757. I’m gonna hold a raffle and the 20 winners get to ride along. Then when we’re in the air, we’ll have a bet pool and see how long it takes us to go through $1,000 of liquor.
