Each day there are more and more signs that Jeb Bush will seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States of America. You can expect him to blast Obamacare as the worst event in modern history since it only provided health care for the poor and did not do anything for job creators. Well, actually, Jeb and his fellow Republican job creators sort of like this law because they can make money. And, whenever a job creator makes some money, they have every right to denounce health care as long as they make dough from it. Jeb just announced that he was stepping down from his job on the Board of Directors of Tenet Healthcare Corporation. From 2007 to 2013 Jeb was paid $2.3 million from a company that has made a few hundred million since it has received thousands of folks who are covered by the infamous health care law. According to Al Fernandez, former head of the Republican party in Florida, “all the public wants to know is that you behaved honorably and that you care for them.”
Mitt Romney cared for the people of Massachusetts, when as governor he fought for a health care program which is a twin for the Obama one. The moral of this story is: as long as we make money we will do so even it requires following laws that we hate.
We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.
France, Connexion: “Ski Season Opens With No Snow”
Now you know why we need a Republican president in the White House!
USA, Washington Post: “Court Rules On Nativity Scene”
In the spirit of the season it must include a Jewish Menorah.
Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Xmas Cheer Helped By Beer”
I’ll drink to that one!
Russia, Moscow Times: “Is Ruble Crisis A Conspiracy?”
I believe a few dollars will solve this plot.
Norway, Norway Post: “Norway And Gaza To Host Conference”
I assume the Norwegians will bring some snow.
About half a century ago, thousands of Cubans fled their native land when Fidel Castro overthrew a dictator and established a communist government. Today, Cuba is among the few “communist” societies that is still based upon communist economic concepts and political ideas conceding which freedom should be allowed the people. A high percent of those who initially left Cuba were from the middle or upper classes of society. They departed with anger at loss of property, of business, of power. Today, many in Florida have not forgotten what they lost and continue hating the Castro boys. There is growing anger within this group of Catholic without a Pope.” Miguel Saavedia now believes “the church is contaminated” because Pope Francis worked to end isolation of Catholics in Cuba. Antonio Suarez-Ramos is ready to hear an announcement from Pope Francis that gays can become priests.
Reality check: Most polls reveal that those under the age of 35 in Florida who are Catholics tracing their ancestors to Cuba refugees now believe it is time for diplomatic relations with Cuba. They understand that those living in Cuba now just might, and I mean, “just might” have a chance to witness relaxation of communist ideas and growth of free enterprise opportunities. It is all well and good for those in Florida to insist continue present policies, but they do not have to live with them each day of their lives. After all, after sixty years of the same, what is the problem in at least attempting something new. Thank God for Pope Francis whose only concern is the welfare of fellow Catholics!
