The TV series of programs in the “Law And Order” family are among the most popular programs ever in the history of the TV industry. And why do you suppose that might be? I am sure all the “experts” on popularity have their own ideas of why this is so. Well, I am certainly no “expert” in anything other than survival but I would like to offer my opinion on why this is so.
I think these programs are so popular because people of every persuasion want to believe in justice.
There is one particular group of these programs called: “Law And Order: SVU”. And in this series there are a few episodes that I simply cannot watch because they expose the deepest darkest side of human nature and despite their disclaimer that no real persons are reflected, most people recognize that there are far too many real world parallels for comfort.
And in some of these episodes, there are gifted actors that portray fictional characters whose defense when charged with rape runs along these lines:
At what point does rape become a pleasurable experience for the victim?
And whom among us are not revolted and angered by such nonsense?
And whom among us are willing to believe that if we “Just lay back and don’t fight it you will inevitably enjoy it.”?
And the “IT” that I am referring to here is “Obamacare”.
The Obama Regime is encouraging people to become the evangelists for Obamacare in their own family and social groups over Thanks Giving dinner. Their message is truly quite simple: Lie back and quit fighting and eventually you will enjoy the experience.
I won’t belabor you with the horrendously offensive aspects of this Socialist doctrine. Nor can I predict the level of socially unacceptable behavior that might erupt should some fool attempt to do that in my home much less over Thanks Giving dinner (ALL of which I personally prepare from scratch ).
But I will encourage you to think about your own families and extended families and decide for yourself if there is a point at which this rape experience could possibly become enjoyable; rape of our free will, rape of our religious convictions, rape of free markets, rape of our Constitution, a brutal rape of the American Dream and personal freedoms.
And for those of us old enough to remember what a free nation once felt like I encourage us all to be truly thankful for this land for which “...God shed his grace on thee”.
And in giving thanks and sharing thanks with our friends and families may we refresh our faith in those things that gave this nation strength in the past and draw on those same strengths to restore her to her place in the world.
May your Thanks Giving truly be a period of giving thanks for friends and families and may God Bless you all and may God Bless America - Again.
