It appears that the flu is to blame for causing the White House drug czar to faint twice on a visit to Massachusetts.
That's not the interesting part though.
Those of you who are my age can take a minute and think back to the days of the Soviet Union. Remember when a Soviet leader hadn't been seen in awhile? The official Soviet government response was, he has a cold. Some time later the man would be dead.
Maybe there's no real correlation here, except for the fact that this guy is either a communist or just merely content to work for them.
I certainly wish the man no ill will and hope he recovers soon. But, we have to ask ourselves something here: How much is this administration modeling itself after the Soviet model?
The President has insulated himself with a wall of so-called czars who not accountable to anyone but him. They favor censorship of ideas that conflict with their own (which lead to nothing more than big government-style socialism designed to expand their power over the citizenry).
When they do not get their way while in the minority, they approve of sending in thugs to ransack and protest inside state capitals for the specific purpose of disrupting valid and appropriate state business. When they are in the majority, they ram unpopular legislation down the people's throats and tell them, too bad for you but we won.
It's a game they play, but at our expense. The question now becomes, how much do we want this democratic republic? Are we going to cave into pressure by this criminal element? Or we going to whether the storm, knowing that we are right and they are wrong?
There are more of us than there are of them.
