I don't know why, but I was recently thinking about a book I read around 13 years ago, "What Dreams May Come". It was also released as a movie a short time later and featured Robin Williams, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Annabella Sciorra. The story was about a man who dies and experiences the afterlife after going to Heaven. To the man's dismay, his wife commits suicide in anguish over his passing and is condemned to something very near Hell. The man sets out from Heaven to find his wife and save her from an eternity of despair. I was touched by the book and found the movie to be a very good adaptation of it.
With that in mind, I can't help but think about the latest scheme to come out of Washington regarding Obama's plans to mandate better gas mileage. These plans involve ratcheting up the use of ethanol in our fuel supply and will require auto-makers to make more fuel-efficient (read "lighter") cars. This scheme is wrapped in the bigger scheme called "Global Warming", which is wrapped in the yet-bigger scheme called "Environmentalism". All these schemes have the same end-result: human pain and suffering. It makes no difference if it is physical or "merely" economic.
So, you may ask, what's next? Well, that seems to be a fairly easy guess. It's called "Healthcare Reform". Do you know what the end result of that scheme will be? Once again, it will result in human pain and suffering and, ultimately, human death. After all, what do we already know about all the other socialized healthcare schemes? They all end up rationing heathcare, which, by the way, can often result in death.
Think about the results of these two schemes and you can't help but come back to the same conclusion. These plans all result in an increase in human death. The mandate for better gas mileage will force people to buy lighter, more fuel efficient cars. You know, the ones that end up with the short end of the stick in an accident.
What other positions of this administration results in death? Hmmm, let me see. I seem to remember a flap over Obama's appearance at Notre Dame's recent Commencement exercises. What was that about?
What the heck is it about Obama that his plans (read "schemes") all result in death? Or maybe it's just that he puts a much higher value on everything besides humanity. I wonder what he sees when he looks in the mirror? Whatever it is, it sure as hell can't be human.
