    "Say it with Princess Sarah, Michelle Bachmann, etc."Me and my sisters.But I'll say it beasuce so many other predictions were right, and I'll go with the team that was right in the past. They're far more likely to be right in the future.As has been pointed out...The bad stuff? We all saw it coming. We made predictions that have come true already as people respond rationally to the new situation. We called Obama on his lies, and how he's back-tracking, doing some spin to say that he never promised that anyone would be able to keep the health insurance they prefer. There is no reason at all to think anything other than that the other predictions are likely to be correct as well. To keep costs down there *has* to be rationing. Medicare has already been "cut" to pay for the new laws. People are going to be denied treatment, nothing particularly new there for the lost causes or experimental stuff, only now it's going to be a function of the State to deny expensive care. It will be the State deciding who gets treatment or not.Death panels.And we're supposed to support this beasuce it *might* help some fraction of the population? Maybe? Got to wait to see?Being right about something, or at the least being *honest* would make that trust in "wait and see" just a little bit less irrational.Telling lies isn't a good way to get people to trust you know what you're talking about... which describes Obama.Pelosi at least didn't pretend to have a clue. Refreshing, that. But mostly beasuce the quote to "pass it to find out what's in it" is just so... precious!

    Karen and Family,
    When I (Rob) joined the CCUMC Chancel Choir earlier this year I was seated next to Bill most of the time. He immediately made me feel welcome and helped me with my parts. He is, and will be missed greatly. My family's thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.
