Hell hath no fury like a former liberal woman.
Give me a break Washington!
Quit acting like people who are vocalizing their opposition to Obamacare (with good reason) are some rebel rowsers stirring up action that’s in the minority. You only have to look at the polls to see the majority of America knows what’s in the bill when it comes to this “reform.” (Psssssss – if you still don’t get it, it’s the big red button to the left!)
So now the people are speaking up, because they’re mad as hell and they’re NOT. GONNA. TAKE. IT. ANYMORE! a la Network if you will. When Arleeeene Specter gets up and actually defends not reading through bills prior to voting on the legislation, you bet your ass he’s gonna get some negative feedback. His job as a Congressman is just to do that, not acquiring campaign funds at elitist cocktail parties. If I had been at that townhall you would have heard a whole heck of a bigger mouthful. “Hey, Arlene…Pull down your skirt! Your panties are showing!”
Now you’ve got members of organizations like AARP, that have endorsed or showed some support of Obamacare, fighting back to their organization’s representatives and management. And you can tell it was starting to work (ie, have an effect) because this week the Unicorn Princess’ Stable, aka the White House, issued an order to the Kool-Aid Nation to ‘Get in their Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!” to anyone who opposes Obamacare. They also went as far to label people who oppose Obamacare as liars, mobs, terrorists/extremists, and labeled them as Nazis (geesus, how is Pelotox not properly labeled a bigot and kicked out of Congress; Oh! That’s right if you’re a Congressmen you get to be a racist, bigot, or asshole and still keep your job, just ask Byrd).
AnyMarxistscaretactic, when did we all of a sudden move to Russia??? Just sayin’…For the last 8 years it’s been “patriotic” to speak out (sometimes run around like a rabid dog) against the government, but now the policy is fall in line or you’re gonna get it. WTF!
Yeah, check out the folks at the AARP meeting where members were questioning the organization’s management decision to back Obamacare. (via Hotair) I’m mean, it’s so obvious. Those hoodlums speaking out against Obamacare. How dare they! Check out that lady in the walker…girlfriend seems like an Astroturfin’ whipper snapper to me. Where’s the Kool-Aid Police!!! I know in her head she’s singing – It’s the thuggish, ruggish, boooooone!
I don’t think I’ve ever commented on Al Franken’s “victory” into the Senate, because like a good pissant he really wasn’t worth my time or energy to hate on. But I came across the picture below on Olbermann Watch.
Geesus, America. This is one of our statesmen. This is a United States Senator, not voting for your favorite episode of Jerry Springer!
Good grief, you should be ashamed of yourself if you voted for this. Okay, not so fast to judge….I see how you could be tricked. This biyatch has HAAAAAWTNESS written all over those bunny ears. You betta work, work, work it guuuuuuurl!
But good grief – A SNEATOR for crying out loud!
During this recess, I hope more and more citizens ask their Congressmen how come what’s good enough to be forced on us doesn’t seem to be good enough for them. As you recall, there were many resolutions out there that would ensure Congressmen & women onto the public healthcare plan they want to force on us to use.
But big surprise, the Beltway elitists didn’t want to vote in favor of that. You mean Nancy Pelosi who drives SUVs to “save the earfffffff” rallies is a hypocrite????
GASP!!!!! You. don’t. say.
John Stossel, libertarian and overall McSmartypants, is at it again:
Maybe one reason that Congress demands that health insurance companies must provide levels of coverage that will make their business model unsustainable is because their own coverage is excessive.
and this time with some help from the LA Times to remind us of the facts of what each Congressman gets in their private insurance plan:
A choice of 10 healthcare plans that provide access to a national network of doctors, as well as several HMOs that serve each member’s home state. By contrast, 85% of private companies offering health coverage provide their employees one type of plan — take it or leave it.
Lawmakers also get special treatment at Washington’s federal medical facilities and, for a few hundred dollars a month, access to their own pharmacy and doctors, nurses and medical technicians standing by in an office conveniently located between the House and Senate chambers…
Why can’t everyone enjoy the same benefits as members of Congress? The answer: The country probably couldn’t afford it …
The plan most favored by federal workers is Blue Cross Blue Shield, which covers a family for about $1,030 a month. Taxpayers kick in $700, and employees pay the rest. Seeing a doctor costs $20. Generic prescriptions cost $10. Immunizations are free. There is no coverage limit…
There is no such thing as a preexisting condition…
If you need further proof, here’s Congressman Paul Ryan clearing up the myth that Congress is under a public plan. Remember this the next time some Congressman is trying to act like he’s “one of the folks” twisting words into making people not mob him and support the sham of Medicare 2.0 aka Obamacare. You’ll hear that a bunch from Congressmen how they want every American to have the same care, but funny when you read the devil in the details the proposed bills on the table are nothing like the private health plans Congressmen use and don’t want to give up.
Congress DOES NOT have a Public healthcare plan. They have access/choice in up to 10 PRIVATE plans. They select that plan and then that is paid through public/taxpayer funds just like their salaries. But their insurance is still private, yeah, that same private insurance Nancy Pelosi says is evil. The same private insurance that gives Congress elite medical care to specialty treatment at Duke University, like the recent Senator Ted Kennedy.
Next time you hear this line of bull, point them to this brilliant cartoon.
I’ve tackled this myth in several posts/columns on my blog, yet the kool-aid drunk youth, and Arlen Specter (oooh, he’s so hip!), keep spouting it off ignoring things like the facts. 47 million uninsured is not a fact, it’s a lie. A lie that is being pushed on you so that you will not look at the situation of Obamacare based on logic but on emotion. Don’t fall for it. We are want to help those less fortunate and increase access to healthcare, but we don’t need to do that by attacking the private sector, an attack propelled by Michael Moore-sized propaganda lies.
Just got this message from Eric Odom, Chicago Tax Day organizer. Looks like one of my favorites (eyes rolling) Jan Schakowsky is making an appear at a rally in favor of Obamacare. Now a movement fighting Obamacare to get answers is organizing.
If you’re in the area tomorrow – come join us! Let’s get some answers and demand Congress represent how 85% of the country are happy with their healthcare as is. You can reform healthcare and still leave ours alone! Stop the expansion of socialized healthcare. We already have Medicare and Medicaid – they are failure and bankrupt. I don’t want the same for my health and we as taxpayers shouldn’t be forced into it either.
Here’s the announcement:
As you might have seen, Patriots are popping up all over the country to counter protest pro-socialist Government healthcare rallies. Well, we have a chance to do so right here in Chicago tomorrow evening in downtown.
There is an astroturf, union fueled pro-Obamacare rally happening tomorrow evening. The details can be seen on this PDF.
When: Tuesday, August 4th, 4:30PM to 6:00PM
Where: Federal Plaza (Adams & Clark)
Who: US Rep Jan Schakowsky
If any of you can get downtown and counter their protest please do so! We need all hands on deck!
I’m waiting to find out when Durbin will have the backbone to face the public. When he does I’ll be there with bells on and some heated questions.
Michelle Malkin was on The View today and she definitely brought some game to the table, which wasn’t hard considering she was at a table with four airheads. I love to see anyone shut these liberal mouthpieces up. The fact is the only reason they are liberal is because they are UNEDUCATED on issues and base their reasoning in emotions rather than clear-cut evidence and logic.
These “ladies” are always so rude to their conservative guests (can anyone honestly forget how rude they were to Cindy & John McCain), that it’s nice to see them put in there place which isn’t hard once you start using those rare yet powerful things call – F.A.C.T.S. Just ask John Zeigler.
(And yes, one View lady admits she only voted for the first time in November, but yet feels educated enough to dole out ZERO criticism on Obama while bashing Bush over and over again. Uh, if you didn’t vote in 2000 or 2004, then shut YO MOUTH on any issues you have a problem with from the Bush Administration. I know that’s not a pretty statement, but guess what – it’s how a lot of people feel. You don’t have the time to educated yourself on issues or presidential candidates enough to get your butt off the couch and vote, then I don’t want to hear your evaluation on how the previous administration did. You opinion is what I like to call – irrelevant!)
Here the video that will make your heart go pitter patter with joy for a Behar Smackdown (via HotAir).
Here is Michelle’s take on her experience and that sly coward comment Whoopi made AFTER Michelle was off the stage. Typical – throwing out false accusation when the person is no longer available to set the record straight.
Second best part: Whoopi Goldberg, who didn’t read the book, asserting that I called the administration the most corrupt ever in the book when I was on the set — and then waiting for me to leave to falsely assert that “that young lady” said it on the Today Show.
No, I didn’t. Here’s the video.
As I said on the show, my argument is that the Obama administration needs to be held to its own standards and rhetoric — and by that standard, it is one of the most corrupt in recent history — a point I made on the Hannity show last Monday when I launched.
You know you’ve won the argument when the ladies of the View are reduced to arguing how corrupt Team Obama is, and not whether.
So over on FB this past week, I’ve been debating the GatesGate. I know – shocking.
But I’m amazed at how far and how many excuses people will stretch in order to justify the actions of a guy basically acting like an asshole to the men protecting his home and causing a public disturbance, thus resulting in his disorderly conduct arrest.
It’ like Tawana Brawley all over again. How soon we forget. Someone accuses cops of a heinous crime, only later to be proven those accused did nothing wrong but accuser’s irresponsible actions somehow still justified by weak arguments based in race-card politics.
I’ve already stated my case on the subject. A Harvard-elitist acting like an asshole, can still be called out for being an asshole – I don’t care what race he is. Just like a racist cop is a racist, despite his race as well. But defamming the character of a decorated and diversity-educating officer as a racist despite evidence to the contrary – somehow justified?
You might be asking why. Get ready for an eye roll. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Well, according to some of my liberal friends it’s because there have been acts of racial profiling in the US in the past and currently. Yes, you read that right. Because injustices still occur that gives people like Gates the right to excuse their behavior even when those injustices are not related to the situation. Because a racist cop like Justin Barrett exists, then it’s a default justification that Crowley “could be” a racist himself (even though there IS NO EVIDENCE), and also Gates is justified to libelously proclaim Crowley as having racially profiled him, falsified a police report about him, and then demanded Crowley owed him an apology.
Please, that’s ridiculous and inexcusable. The same goes for Al Sharpton and Tawana Brawley. It’s okay since cops may have abused black women in other instances, that Sharpton and Brawley were justified in outright lying to the public, creating mass hysteria with no evidence, and labeling NYC officers as rapists/racists even when proved they had done nothing to this woman. Classic case of defamation of character, just like has happened with Crowley.
In fact Gates’ daughter in her latest piece on The Daily Beast after the beer summit, literally still proclaims false accusations that Crowley falsified the arrest report on her father. Yet, we don’t hear an apology or a retraction from anyone in the Gates camp that there was wrong doing on Gates’ behalf. No, no, no…that would get in the way of this idiot taking responsibility for the bad actions he made himself.
“and Sgt. Crowley isn’t the first officer to fudge a police report.”
Yeah, honey. Just ignore the fact there that another officer separately wrote a report that was nearly identical to the one Crowley wrote. I bet that officer was racial profiling too – oh OOOPS! that officer was hispanic.
The real teachable moment on post-racial relations comes from Sgt. Leon Lashley who was also at the scene (via Pundit Review). What’s really sad is that Gates will be respected (???) and praised more than Lashley when clearly Lashley is the more decent of the two. Men like Gates, Rev. Wright and Al Sharpton are excused with more money going in their greedy pockets from spewing the equivalent of revenge hate while good men like Lashley are called Uncle Toms. Those defending Gates in this way should be ashamed of themselves.
On the flipside, many say that Gates is justified because he was arrested on his private property and shouldn’t have been arrested because of his civil liberties. Well, to that – not so fast jack.
First, Gates didn’t cry wolf on the basis of his civil liberties being violated. No, he went for the good ol’ “cops are racist” defamation card, and guess what, it backfired. So it’s is proper to call Gates out on this offense. We can’t go around justifying people’s actions when they degrade cops branding them as racists based solely on the heinous actions of other bad cops. It would be the same as judging our troops who are professional and heroic everyday on those bad apple troops who committed abuse. Back to the civil liberties “defense.” While I understand this argument more, here’s where the line in the sand is drawn. A man has a right to be an asshole on his private property, should his actions not permeate within a certain limit of that property.
Remember Justice Oliver Wendall Holmes – one man’s right to swing his fist ends at the tip of another man’s nose. Gates can scream, yell profanities all he wants inside his home, but to a point. Once that disturbance breaks to the level it is saturating through to the rest of his community and neighbors, then the cops have the right to arrest him on the grounds of disorderly conduct. For example, any man has the right to watch porn in his house. Despite whether you think this is right or wrong, he has the right. What he doesn’t have the right to do though is hang a big white sheet over the front of his house and project “Debbie Does Dallas” on a 200 inch screen for the whole neighborhood to view. That’s called being a public disturbance, a violation of disorderly conduct. It would also be justified if Gates was causing such a disturbance inside his home that the noise reached the property of his neighbors. Therefore, to the civil liberties argument, yes, a man can be arrested for being an asshole on his own property.
Gee, Bernanke, I’ll take your typical answer here….”I don’t know.” This is the same type of answer I asked a camper once in my counselor days when he hit another camper in the face. “Why did you hit him?” “Eh, I don’t know.” Way to go, Bernanke! WAY. TO. GO.
Video here from a friend on Facebook. Can you believe this? The Fed cannot answer where $500 BILLION went to overseas. Asked to name the central banks it went to, which was around 14 as cited by Bernanke in the vid, he cannot do so. He says they’re listed in the document. Then as to answer what banks it went to beyond the foreign central banks, he still cannot provide an answer. What? Here’s a thought, when you go to a review committee have the answers on hand.
Congressmen Grayson points out brilliantly how the nominal exchange rate of the US dollar went up 20% at the exact same time the half-trillion dollars was lent out to the foreign markets. He questions if it’s really a coincidence and Bernanke with hesitation says yes but you can see him questioning that response on his face. Not a coincidence??? Riiiiiiight.
Grayson also questions the ability for the Federal Reserve to dole out that kind of money to foreign states without the authorization of Congress (a checks & balances requirement) and the response. Oh, the Federal Reserve Act. The date of this legislation you ask? 1913! Gee, think maybe it’s time to pay attention to the laws that may be outdated before you shovel half-trillion dollars of tax payer money out the door???
I’ve never read up on the libertarian idea of getting rid of the Federal Reserve, despite a few mentions in my Neal Boortz collection. Perhaps it’s time to investigate.
Exit question: Did hell freeze over because I never thought the day would come where I would thank god for C-SPAN 3????
I’ll give Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) a little credit. At least she’s willing to put herself out there, even if it is on the chopping block. I don’t think she attended the townhall in St. Louis, but perhaps she should have. Looks like somebody gots some esssssplainin’ to do. It doesn’t look good when your veteran constituents know more about the Constitution and the founding principles of the country better than you (via Hotair):
She was present at the townhall meeting in Independence, MO, but she didn’t fare much better.
People are angry, and they’re not gonna take it anymore! Also, note her typical phony rhetoric about tax cuts for the rich (ie Bush tax cuts) and how they didn’t create any jobs. What??? It’s like she’s reading from a designated DNC boilerplate of a press release. Give me a break.
NEWSFLASH, Senator Charlatan – the Bush tax cuts actually benefitted the poor more, decreasing their share of payment/taxes to the country’s overall tax revenue pot, AND in case you were in a comma since then there were 52 months of consecutive job GROWTH between September 2003 and December 2008. GROWTH!!!! Between 2003 – May 2007, 8 million new jobs were created and unemployment fell 25% from 6.1% – 4.5%. Now while there was a crisis in the markets and our country has since fallen into a recession – this did not have to do with taxes. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. Yes, lying. The recession happened because of four factors – housing market/Fannie & Freddie debacle, unregulated credit-default derivatives, psychology of doom/gloom perpetuated by 2008 presidential candidates and the media in order to win spikes of attention, and massive expansion of debt leading to speculation of inflation which scares off investors throughout 2009.
So get off the continued lie of the Bush tax cuts were “bad” for the country and supposedly led to unemployment. If you still believe this, rub out your puppy love eyes, Claire, because you aren’t seeing it clearly! You’ve been Obamatized!
We can’t say we haven’t been warned. We should always look to the mistakes of the past to not repeat them in the future. I wish more of America would take not before then send the rest of us up the river. (via Hotair)
The ranting and raving of a woman formally brainwashed under the liberal agenda. Through investigation, commentary and sarcasm about government, this woman is breaking free of the hypocritical liberal party that tries to manipulate women into believing only they can represent women’s rights. Get informed, get free, get Un-Liberaled! This blog does not endorse any particular candidate or party - although if I did, I most likely wouldn’t endorse a liberal candidate. For instance, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or as I like to call her Smancy Pelotox would not get my vote. Comprende? Good. Hope you enjoy the rants! :)
