Sailing over the Obama main

January 7, 2014 

I can see it now, sailing on the U.S.S. ACA (Affordable Care Act). We have been sailing in deep waters for going on five years as Capt. Obama has said more than 40 times, smooth waters ahead. He told us we could buy a cheap ticket for a long cruise. Even if the ship is going to hit an iceberg, you will be able to get on board one of our nice lifeboats. Only 15 percent won't be able to get on board, but think of it this way; not everyone is guaranteed safe passage, only the captain, navigators of congress, Dirty Harry Reid, forward lookouts, close cronies (called staff), most of the seamen (unions) have already latched onto their lifeboats. So why not get on board for the thrill of a lifetime. Ole Capt. Obama is trying to sell the "go no where" tickets at unbelievable prices. That is if you can stand in line long enough. I remember an old saying, "red skies at night, sailors delight; red skies in the morning, sailors take warning." Get on board the ACA, the nice red sun is shining, bon voyage.
