It seems ever more commonplace today that we are more concerned about the pebble in our shoe than our neighborhood church burning down.

A close friend of mine and Princeton graduate was a die hard Obama supporter until last Thursday. He is smart and well read, works hard long hours and is meritoriously very successful on many levels.
Prior to Thursday, he defined oxymoron.

What soured his support for Obama?
The pebble in his shoe reared its ugly head. The economy had finally started to negatively impact him personally. He tasted a bowl of the government gruel and it wasn't to his liking.
Imagine that!

His kind has no reservations about pontificating their Ivy League liberal elite crap and imposing pie-in-the-sky rules and mandates on others. However, when the folly negatively impacts THEIR personal lives, the consequences are unacceptable.
So now that my old friend is reaping what he has sown for others; suddenly the delusional rules are grossly unfair.
Who knew?
You'd think he was a damn Congressman.

Obama's philosophy of change and hopelessness is nothing new.
He promotes the principle that every person should contribute to society to the best of his or her ability and consume from society in proportion to his or her needs, regardless of how much he or she has contributed.
This mantra sounds eerily similar to a popular slogan of Karl Marx:    " From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
The caveat being that the government, not the individual, shall be determinate in evaluating "need" and "contribution".

Obama's Marxist health care scheme should scare the hell out of every American.
So don't worry about the pebble in your the end of the day we'll all be walking barefoot on shards of glass, grateful for a government band-aid.

On a far far lesser scale, the Harris County  Republican run-off for the 180th District Criminal Court  represents a pebble in the shoes of those of us who work in the Harris County Criminal Justice System.....the rest of Harris County could care less if our church burns down.
