" In the world's broad field of battle, In the bivouac of life, Be not like dumb, driven cattle ! Be a hero in the strife ! "
One of my favorite poets.

Someone said that if you can't find the time to do something right the first time, how can you find the time to do it over.

Measure twice, cut once. Keep it plumb and square says the old builder. As with our " Ship of State " We know what Master laid thy keel.

It usually takes few words to tell the truth. You can bet that if the President receives a bill of 2000 pages he doesn't know what is inside it -- but you can damn well bet the excuses for these projects are voluminous. Obamacare was a tax, would be executed like a tax, and would generate revenue for the government like a tax. But in order to make it look like something else, it became an unreadable behemoth of legal jargon intended to confuse all the way to the Supreme Court.
