It becomes harder and harder each day to control the anger that reverberates within my being at the continued audacity of this administration. If you ever wondered what medieval England was like, you have to look no further than the perks and exemptions given to the ruling class – Obama administration and Congress. According to Market Watch and reiterated on the Gateway Pundit, Barack Obama has approved a plan to exempt Congress and their staff from Obamacare.
Both sites reported as follows:
The White House has approved a deal that will exempt members of Congress and their staff from some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported late Thursday. Under the law, popularly referred to as Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides were required to source health insurance “created” by the law or offered through one of its exchanges, and without the subsidies they currently enjoy, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the report said. However, the Office of Personnel Management now plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff, it said, citing unnamed congressional sources and a White House official.
This abomination has been shoved down the throats of the American public and touted as the best thing since slice bread, but Congress wants no part of it so they hollered and their “king” responded by granting them their desire. The “serf” population of America will have to suffer through, getting by the best way they can, possible sustaining fines because of the plans being unaffordable. But, you can bet your bottom dollar, Congress, secure in its “noble” standing, will be spared any inconvenience or additional premium payments. The motto is, “what’s good for the goose, is not good for the gander as the gander is better than the goose.”
The comparison to medieval England is only in reference to the way the population of America is treated versus the federal government in Washington, DC. But, for all our advances in technology, education and economics, the tendency of some to revert to the antiquated idea of “nobility and serfdom” surfaces daily through news articles. Some news reports still contribute “riots and protests” outside American embassies on September 11, 2012 to an anti-islam video produced by an American resident, while reporting the closure of the US embassies in the Middle East and Asia due to security threats. The IRS has continued its abuses and targeting of conservative groups in the midst of a Congressional investigation. Then, there is Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and a partridge in a pear tree variety of blatant disregard for the Constitution. Aided by the “court jesters” known as the American mainstream media, the true nature of violations are covered and watered down.
There has been no accountability or anyone held responsible for the numerous scandals plaguing this administration. In the days of kings and nobles, they would not dare consider themselves accountable to those they consider beneath them. Treason was what they considered it to be on a whim. Laws enacted to serve themselves better while suppressing and oppressing the subjects they ruled. Granted, their “poor” supporters might have been treated better. Those opposed to the ruling elite were terrorized, imprisoned and often eradicated. One only has to look at the recent past to see evidence of this nature, but this did not surface under monarchical rule, but under the guise of governments that purported to “help” their people attain a better social standing.
Do you see the similarities yet? The government has no intention of holding any one of their own accountable. That is unthinkable. American citizens are viewed as nothing to them, insignificant pawns to be discarded as easily as one removes a pebble from their shoe or flicks a bug from their arm; we hold no power and certainly are not deserving of any truth or knowledge regarding any business they conduct. They have plenty of pawns in the form of leftists and progressives who are their blind supporters hoping to receive some modest gesture of favoritism to avoid punishment. The pawns are there to help silence “dissent” by using any means necessary. After all, who are “we” to question a “king?”
In the times of medieval kings, it was thought kings were ordained by God. The “king wannabe” sitting in the Oval Office was ordained by something, but it sure as h*** wasn’t God.
While there are some in Congress who are trying to speak out and act as kind “nobles” protecting their charges as some did in those olden days, those individuals are being quickly squashed by the elder more “seasoned” veterans in hopes to attain their secret endeavor before the pot boils over. And the pot will boil over but it may be too late.
Even though the Constitution prohibits the granting of any title of nobility, it has become obvious the government has basically appointed themselves, ever so silently, as nobility in this country. They feed their “pawns” and “serfs” a diet of arsenic-laden fodder – some are choking on it while some are lapping it up. It becomes more disgusting, distasteful and arrogant daily. Yes, I’m angry.
I keep asking myself, “How many of us are there who are sick of this mess?” and “When is enough going to be enough?”
