Many will have no doubt read the following quote, attributed to Ben Stein, though its actual origin is in dispute. Like most great quotes, however, it ultimately matters little who originally wrote or spoke it. What does matter is the wisdom reflected therein. So here it is, wherever – or with whomever - it originated:
"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."
[Now add this,] "Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."
And I will now add this, taken from my online comment in response to the “Stein” quote:
Fathom a News Media [along with the entire Democratic Party and many from the disingenuously-termed “opposition party”] who insist that we must investigate the winning U.S. presidential candidate, for violating an unspecified law or statute, UNTIL the alleged crime, of which he is presumed guilty, is discovered and proven; while REFUSING to investigate the losing candidate, though undisputed PROOF of the same alleged “crime” is known to all, and was (and apparently still is) the very BASIS (the Steele “dossier” – which the losing candidate and her party actually PAID “high officials within the Russian government” for damaging allegations against the winning candidate) for launching both an FBI and now Special Counsel (Special PROSECUTOR) investigation of the winning candidate.
Then couple that fact with the inarguable, and also-undisputed FACT that virtually ALL of those conducting BOTH investigations are either members of the losing candidate’s party – many having worked either directly FOR the losing candidate or for her party’s previous Administration – or, are KNOWN stated ENEMIES of the winning candidate.
Then couple THAT with the fact that the National Media spends virtually EVERY hour of EVERY day “reporting” on the winning candidate’s still-unproven NON-CRIMES, while ONLY mentioning the losing candidate’s multiple KNOWN CRIMES, and her KNOWN and PROVEN surrogates within the DOJ and FBI, et al., in the context of OPENLY disparaging and dismissing (mocking and discrediting) ALL of those – in both media and government – who are courageously and inarguably bringing the REAL truth to light.
Fortunately, at this juncture, all of those with even a TRACE of awareness or objectivity have begun to figure all of this out. All that is lacking now is for a STRONG majority of the winning candidate’s OWN party to stand up, and, if necessary, tell all of those in the MEDIA and in the LOSING PARTY – who are OPENLY falsifying known FACTS, while branding the entire effort to expose the TRUTH a partisan “trick” to “undermine” the Special Counsel whom they have put in place for the sole purpose of UNDOING the results of the presidential election – to go to Hell!
Now fathom all of THAT!
