Well today was like a train wreck, I turned on the TV and started watching the funeral of Senator Ted Kennedy. I took some breaks from time to time, but always came back to see what was happening next. I had heard on one of the broadcasts that Teddy had played an integral part in planning today's events. Well it started early and it ended at Arlington after dark. The funeral was as long as Teddy's ego was large. I thought it would never end, thank goodness I took some anti nausea medication early!
At Arlington, the long awaited answer to what Kennedy had written in a letter to the Pope that was delivered by President Barack Hussein Obama back during the summer. He wrote the following to the Pope:
"I have always tried to be a faithful Catholic... and though I have fallen short through human failings, I've never failed to believe and respect the fundamental teachings of my faith."
Kennedy continued to say that he was:
"committed to do everything (he could) to achieve access to health care for everyone. "This has been the political cause of my life."
OK, that's great, now you have been absolved, I have been waiting my entire life to understand why you were such a die hard socialist, now I know. Through your lifelong "works" you are trying to right your human failings. Next time around Senator, do us all a favor, publicly apologize for any indiscretion that comes to light. Americans are a forgiving people, we love to forgive and spare us all from the rhetoric of your fight for "human rights".
Did Mary Jo Kopechne deserve simple "human rights" as she drowned? Did the women that you abused deserve "human rights". Did the waitress at Washington’s La Brasserie deserve simple "human rights"?
Numerous times today, the media stated that the halls of the Senate would never be the same. To that I say Thank God!
To the family, for their loss, I offer my condolences. To the American people I say, Teddy has left the building and we should all be thankful. Hopefully this is an end of an ERA. Hopefully it's the beginning of a new ERA, and ERA where the American people, We The People take back what is ours.
No to ObamaCare, No to KennedyCare.
I'm certain that Senator Kennedy received the finest health care he could afford while battling his disease. Poor Mary Jo Kopechne didn't even deserve to receive Emergency Medical Service and Senator Kennedy and President Obama think they know what is best for Americans? In the infamous words of John Stossel, "Give me a break!"
Yeah, I said it and you are entitled to my opinion! VN8
As a side note, I've surfed the internet a lot today and this is no reflection on Senator Kennedy, but it is a disgrace what the Kennedy family did after the Patriarch of their family, Joseph Kennedy had a lobotomy performed on his daughter, Senator Kennedy's sister, Rose Marie Kennedy (September 13, 1918 – January 7, 2005). If you are not familiar with this tragedy, do a little research and get a box of tissues. It is pathetic! If this is the type of healthcare we have coming down the pike or a reflection of "death panels", we are all going to be writing letters to the POPE!
Oh and one more thing, you know the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Senator Kennedy's father was an anti-Semite, read it for yourself:
Kennedy was (for a while) a close friend with the leading Jewish lawyer Felix Frankfurter, who helped Kennedy get his sons into the London School of Economics, where they worked with Harold Laski, a leading Jewish intellectual and prominent socialist. While holding positive attitudes towards individual Jews, Kennedy's views of the Jews as a people were, by his own admission, overwhelmingly negative.
According to Harvey Klemmer, who served as one of Kennedy's embassy aides, Kennedy habitually referred to Jews as "kikes or sheenies." Kennedy allegedly told Klemmer that "[some] individual Jews are all right, Harvey, but as a race they stink. They spoil everything they touch." When Klemmer returned from a trip to Germany and reported the pattern of vandalism and assault on Jews by Nazis, Kennedy responded, "Well, they brought it on themselves."
