A funny thing happened on the way to the House floor Sunday night, March 21.

Several members of Congress, lead by a gavel-wielding speaker, marched past the protests of 30,000 Americans attempting in vain to have their voices heard. The arrogant noses of the leaders were held so high in defiance, I am shocked they didn't pass out from oxygen deprivation.

Traditionally, members of Congress traverse the tunnels while traveling between their congressional offices and the House floor. But not this Sunday. Their pride, arrogance and willingness to ignore the will of the people were on full display for the world to see.

The lack of servanthood, while sickening to the average American, was viewed as "heroic" by Speaker Pelosi. She made it clear. She and her minions were set on doing what they wanted, and the people be damned. They know what is best for us.

The participants of the march should not have felt pride any more than a disheveled partier wearing last night's clothes on the way to his car in the morning should. It should have been a walk of shame.

After the vote heard 'round the world, the ever predictable cries of racism and bigotry started filling TV screens and radio broadcasts throughout the land. It is alleged the "N" word and "F" word were leveled at the parade of puppets as they made their way through the angry yet orderly crowd. They even claimed they were "spat" upon.

If this occurred, it should be strongly condemned. However, there seems to be a great absence of proof for these claims – unless you are willing to believe the testimony of those who lie, cheat and steal as part of their job. We are now to take their word for it? This time they are telling the truth, right?

There is no proof, however. With hundreds of personal video cameras and cell phones, not to mention the dozens of TV cameras and radio microphones present, there is not one shred of video or audio to back up the claims? We can't watch the video and read the lips of the bigoted racist that hurled these insults at such a fine group of public servants? There is no footage of them wiping off the spit of the protesters? Give me a break. It never happened. But what a great distraction.

So the whores in Congress once again did as their madame and pimp instructed them. They voted "yes" on the same bill on which the people voted "nay." Just like they did on the TARP, the stimulus and now the crown jewel of the Obama reign of terror, health-care reform.

Congress once again ignored the people they promised to serve and instead paid full attention to Pelosi, Reid and Mr. Obama. Congress could ill afford to allow our first affirmative-action president to fail. His presidency was on the line and that was of far greater value than listening to a group they view as nothing more than a bunch of knuckle-dragging racists who can't think for themselves.

That's right! The president's ego and reputation are more important than the Constitution or the rules of the Congress. The arm-twisting and payoffs felt very comfortable to Pelosi and Obama – she learning the behavior from her father, the alleged corrupt mayor of Baltimore, and Obama from his Chicago pals. Do the names Rezko, Mayor Daley or Rostenkowski ring any bells?

This is how these people do business. It is in their DNA. They have been taught and fully believe the ends justify the means – even if they have to check their character and integrity at the door, just like any good prostitute.

Two-hundred nineteen whores passed a bill that more than 55 percent of Americans want repealed. Now Congress is acting as if they have helped the country. They have not, any more than a prostitute helps a customer by leaving a smile on his face. That same smile turns to a frown of humiliation, guilt and remorse when the spouse or family member learns of the services rendered.

Gandhi once said there are seven things that will destroy us:

* Wealth without work
* Pleasure without conscience
* Knowledge without character
* Commerce without morality
* Science without humanity
* Worship without sacrifice

Apparently, Gandhi knew Speaker Pelosi personally.
