Didn’t the President himself say, “I want seniors to know, despite what some have said, these reforms will not cut your guaranteed benefits.” That’s what President Obama told us, endlessly and repeatedly, for months on end. Do you mean to say he was lying?
Oops, he was lying. Apparently, Sarah Palin was right about those death panels.
…which caused me to recall this skit from Monty Python’sThe Meaning of Life:
Whatever happened to “it’s my body, my choice?” Is it truly a donation if you don’t have a choice in the matter? Hmmm. I guess folks could theoretically opt out, but I still don’t like the precedent that this law would set. What say you?
George Soros seems to pull the strings of the Obama administration…this postulates that he controls much of our information technology, as well, particularly Google (no surprise). Apple and Microsoft apparently have similar political leanings, and are directly influenced by Soros’ “open society” (i.e., socialist) vision for the world. Pay particular attention to part where Bill Gates is discussing ways in which to reduce the world population (this is particularly creepy): vaccines, health care, and reproductive health services (code words for abortion). The abortion part, I get. No babies = fewer people, if that is your objective. But vaccines and health care are supposed to improve life expectancy, so WTF does he mean by that statement? It sounds kinda sinister.
It’s not that I’ve had nothing to post about, it’s that there is too much to post about, and real life gets in the way of sitting down and composing my thoughts. Too much nasty shit is coming down the pike, and it sometimes gets overwhelming to to contemplate it all. For instance:
Apparently, if you’re not a socialist, you’re a racist. I didn’t get that memo…did you? Also, according to the CEO of ACORN, the Tea Party is a “bowel movement.” Bertha Lewis told a group called the “Young Democratic Socialists” that “This is not rhetoric or hyperbole — this is real,” Lewis said. “This rise of this Tea Party so-called movement — bowel movement in my estimation — and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism.” She also said that we are plotting their doom. Which we are. Meanwhile, stay classy, Bertha.
And the hits just keep on comin’. It seems I can’t post fast enough to keep track of Obama’s sinking poll numbers. His approval rating is dropping like a newly-adolescent male’s testicles. As I noted a mere four days ago, his disapproval rating after fourteen months in office reached a level worse than George Bush’s after his entire two-term tenure. The previous poll number post was nine days before that. At this rate, within a week I’ll be posting hourly, then minute-by-minute. Perhaps Einstein could have told us if time slows down as poll number decline approaches the speed of light.
Majority, as in more than 50%, even if you use ObamaMath™. Maybe the public’s opinion of Obama’s performance is related to that stuff with the thing they were messin’ with last weekend, or somethin’. Just a thought.
Now that the shock of the healthcare reform 2×4 across the forehead has begun to wear off, it’s time to consider the next steps. Below the fold is an essay I wrote early this morning setting forth my thoughts on where to go from here. But first, some profound thoughts from Oddball about “the negative waves, Baby.”
“Well, a lot of those folks, your employer it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent [sic], which means they could give you a raise.”–President Obama in Strongsville Ohio, March 15, as quoted on the White House Web site
Gee, is it just me, or is the math off on this just a bit? I mean, I’m not Hahvahd-educated and all Supah Smaht like Teh Prezident, but a 100% reduction in premiums would reduce your premiums to zero, right? So how much is the insurance company going to pay you to insure you?
Can this guy be any more ignorant than he seems to be? As Elphaba informs me, that is a scary question.
Here’s the clip, if you can stand to gaze upon the blinding stupidity:
Yep, liberals don’t just think they know better than you when it comes to your health care, they know that they know better. And amazingly, they believe that forcing this health care monstrosity down our throats is evidence of political courage.
So today’s conservatives have a choice: They can contest health reform and the rest of the Democratic agenda on its merits, or they can go down the populist road that Sarah Palin and her followers represent. But let’s call that populism by its rightful name—namely, shameless flattery of the people and the manipulation of public fears and prejudices for short-term political advantage.
Hmmm, “shameless flattery of the people and the manipulation of public fears and prejudices for short-term political advantage.” Like, the Democratic approach to selling the health care “crisis?”
The author even has the chutzpah to cite the Federalist Papers in support of his twisted thesis.
Yeah, the article is from The New Republic, but I slogged through it so you won’t have to. Because I’m a caring giver.
