The minute I heard about the brouhaha with Phil Robertson, I sent off a letter to A & E. I am supportive of the Robertsons. I watch their show. It is a great mix of ruggedness, business, faith and odd folks that are easy to like. You can watch it an laugh with them. You never hear a cuss word and you never hear meanness. I particularly love and wince at the exchanges between loving brothers, a testosterone driven one-upmanship that mirrors our own three sons.
Lately, I have a new addiction on TV. It is Modern Family. Modern Family features lots of likable characters, including a gay couple working out their own lives. It is charming and funny.
Our culture, pushed to the limit, pushes acceptance of gayness into our face. Simple acceptance of “live and let live” is not enough for GLAAD and P-FLAG. Evidently, they want all of us to believe that gay is mainstream. Is it? While I am happy that no one in today’s America must live in “the closet”, while I am happy that sitcoms can come up with funny couples that provoke though, I am also alarmed at the political clout of a minority of gay rights groups. When will they be happy with me? Must I evolve to their group think, the exact opposite of group think of the past that kept gays in the closet? Will they only be happy when sin has been redefined and no one is a sinner? I am a sinner and fall short. So is Phil Robertson, and so is the gay guy down the street.

At the end of Nov., the Obamacare enrollment numbers were said to be a little over 350,000 for the entire two months of October and November. We have been told that we can’t verify who has actually paid for insurance yet and we cannot get any new numbers until after December is over. Yet strangely, I have received information from Organizing for America, the old Obama Campaign that just won’t go away. On Sunday, they sent me an email that said 1.2 million were on the verge of getting insurance from Obamacare. Then on Monday, they sent another email that told me that 1.2 million have received insurance. Boy, the website must have really been busy overnight. How does 350,000 turn into 1.2 million? Where does the ongoing Obama campaign get that new 1.2 million number? Are they getting numbers before we can get them? Or are they just making them up?

Because we all know that Obamacare can only be saved if Obama gives a lot more speeches about it, the new rebranding is on. Obama gave a White House speech yesterday, pointing to the people props behind him, telling us how these people have benefited from this wonderful ObamaCare law. Strange thing is the White House would not release the names and circumstances of the people props he is using to tell us the Obamacare is the best thing since sliced peanut butter. So, as Reagan commanded, Trust by Verify. Remember, many of the wonderful stories about Obamacare successes have proved to be false during these last few months. The President has proven beyond a doubt that he is willing to lie about Obamacare.
