Building a national database of informants is the work of an obsessive, fearful and desperate team. It reflects the strident insecurity of a leader who is not used to hard criticism. It plays to the creepy authoritarian strain of leftist politics, the stratum that considers democracy a messy and useless impediment to the realization of utopia. It is a bad idea, poorly executed.

ObamaCare is not just singular legislation. It is the herald of heralds of an overreaching, over-controlling federal government. Allowed, it cannot be.
One factor and only one factor has stopped passage of ObamaCare thus far: public opposition.

Had not spilled his gut
And had kept his mouth shut –
If the thing that he said sounded fishy.

“This Talk Radio’s going too far
And we soon will be raising the bar:
In the interest of fairness
And cultural awareness,
Every station will air NPR.”
“We can tell filthy lies about you
And there’s nothing at all you can do,
But we’ll make such a fuss
If you criticize us –
Even if what you say is quite true.”
Last week’s limerick:
When in reason and faith understood,
It promotes a profound common good;
But, when used to defend a
“Social justice” betrays brotherhood.
Okay, everybody, do your duty now. If you see anything “fishy” about health insurance reform — or anything else, for that matter — send it on to the White House! And, if you’re thinking about disseminating something fishy of your own, please clear it with Obama first.
