'Law of the land' doesn't make something right

People say, “Obamacare is the law of the land.” Years ago, Prohibition was law of the land, and how did that work out? Speaking of how well things worked out, Social Security now gives you less in benefits, and raises the age of eligibility. So, too, food stamps were supposed to support people on hard times. But those on food stamps have access to movies, beer, liquor and cigarettes because they “deserve” the same as working people. Also, let’s not forget the SNAP and HEAP programs. 

If you do your homework, you will find that Obamacare has been implemented by such organizations as ACORN. Renamed for many reasons, and all of them involving fraud. Oh and by the way, Obama said we could keep our insurance, if we liked it. Do you know a bold face lie when you hear it? This sounds like another Cash for Clunkers program, only a hell of a lot larger and more costly.

The law of the land was directed by God, and written on stone tablets on Mount Sinai. It is, and always will be, the one and only law of the land.
