Obama in Wonderland

How did we get back on the topic of healthcare? HOW?!

We had already decided: The majority of American people do not want the bull that Obama is shovelling as a healthcare system (translation: government takeover of the healthcare system). Yet we continue with the silly process of watching that great artist Obama fiddling with healthcare, as America burns with debt and unemployment.

As I watch the Democrats in power today, I can't help feeling like Alice watching the incredible events in Wonderland. It has a surreal feeling, as if aliens or demons or some other kind of fictional characters had suddenly taken over the U.S. government.

But here we are, at the tea party, as our cheshire president promises not to tax the overwhelming majority of Americans, while promising them a benefit on top of our already overwhelming debt. Maybe he has a magic pill which will make the debt grow small? We have already seen his magic pill which made the debt grow big.

One thing I can say with certainty: Our government is mad as a hatter...

Random Super Bowl Thoughts

Now that the Super Bowl is over, here are some random thoughts on it (basically because I don't feel like putting them in any logical order):

1. Congratulations to the Saints! If I have to be proven wrong in my prediction (yes, I wrongly picked the Colts), I enjoy having it done by sheer coaching genius. Sean Payton brought his "A" coaching game. After dominating the Colts in the 2nd quarter, yet still losing on the scoreboard, the idea to run an onside kick to start the 3rd quarter was a no-lose situation for the Saints: If they recover the kick, which they did, they get to compound their already dominant time-of-possession, while disheartening their opponents; if they didn't recover the kick, the Colts end up with a short field, which still leaves the Saints dominating time-of-possession should the Colts score.

2. On the other hand, Jim Caldwell was a major coaching disappointment. He ran the same game plan the Colts have used all season.

3. I would be willing to bet the NFL did not actually hear The Who perform live anytime recently. If they had, they would have realized Roger Daltrey's voice ain't what it used to be. That halftime show was easily the WORST I have ever heard! If the NFL is going to insist on trotting out dinosaur rock bands, then I have a suggestion for next year's Super Bowl halftime: Prop up Elvis's corpse and play his songs over the speakers. It couldn't be any more hideous than what they inflicted on us this year.

4. Too bad Carrie Underwood butchered "The Star Spangled Banner". But I always thought Bo Bice should have won "American Idol" that year.

5. The best commercial was easily Punxsutawney Polamalu: "He saw his shadow! Six more weeks of football!" If that thought doesn't warm a football fan's heart, nothing will.
