Continuing my theme for this week, today will be more along the lines of a retweet. Although I guess in this case it would be a re-blog.
For anyone who didn’t read my Monday blog (shame on you), but here’s a link.
The theme to which I am referring is victory. Everyone likes to win.
Building on that I think it’s fair to say that no one likes to lose. But where there are winners, there are losers.
I am referring not to my still in the lead NCAA bracket (which is once again karmically screwed), but to the new health care bill.
You probably didn’t see that one coming, unless you follow the “Newsweek” blogs like I do (what did I do before Twitter?).
Sunday they posted a blog which essentially divided all of Washington into winners and losers in the passing of this new bill.
Good news Tea Partiers, you were on the winning side!
Bad news Tea Partiers, so were Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the Democratic Party. I guess “Newsweek” assumes you enjoy making a fuss about things?
OK, I’m going to take a step back from that political ledge and return to far more generic statements.
To be perfectly honest, even with all the reading I’ve been doing on the passing of this bill, I’m still not sure I understand everything that it entails.
Of course, I also assume that given the amount of literature that usually goes along with a bill such as this, there are a lot of people in Washington who haven’t gotten through it all.
What I do understand is that in a nation of 300 million (ish) people, it’s impossible to please everyone…and that in politics and everything else in life, there are always winners and always losers.
We can only hope that both sides are graceful.
I’ll let you all make the connection between the above message, and the below video clips…you be the judge:
Hey, no one said it was a fair match-up…but someone has to lose…
Still one of my favorites:
