We have a selective memory in this country. This is why we need to be reminded of a few things over and over.
For example despite the fact that most Americans believe in God we have to be careful not to offend the few who don’t. We forget the infamous phrase “Separation of church and state” is not even in the Constitution.
And just because of one isolated Supreme Court case every woman now has the right to kill off her preborn baby anytime she wants. A fact the woman involved in the case now deeply regrets.
So now even though most Americans have access to health care we have to create a giant new monster government program for the few who don’t. All that’s needed are few common sense solutions. These were the papers the Republicans were waving during the president’s lecture last week.
Meanwhile what about in 2005 when it wasn’t one congressman speaking out, it was almost half the chamber booing president Bush? No one said a word about that. Yet another case of selective memory.
