In direct opposition to lefty venom over the news of Rush falling ill, I also immediately knew that folks all over this amazing, yes still amazing no thanks to Barry and Crew, country of ours fell to their knees in prayer for The Voice of Truth.
Rush is the biggest, most listened to, fearlessly courageous voice in the battle against the left and all that is wrong with this country. There is still work to be done. We need him.
Yet, here's where the lefties gets confused. They think that the anger of those throughout this land over the thievery, rampant greed and stupidity happening in Washington is fueled by Rush, pushed forward by Rush, contrived by Rush, when in fact he merely articulates what so many are feeling yet have a difficult time communicating. We have all had moments of wanting to express something yet struggled putting A-Z together, so when we hear someone else put the words together, the feelings we are feeling, manifested in a clear and precise manner, we have a moment of YES! THAT'S IT EXACTLY! This is what Rush does for so many. He puts our sentiments into viable, understandable, resonating within truth, words.
The left thinks that Rush is our big brain, that those who listen to him are dimwitted headless chickens with no synapses of our own, when in fact, Rush simply, clearly, fearlessly, puts our own feelings, thoughts, anger, and hopes into words. That is why his audience is one of the largest in the world. That is why he is wildly popular. That is why he is The Voice; He resonates truth.
Lefties think that if only Rush would die, then we would be deprived of our Sampson's hair. They think if only Rush was six feet under, that their world, their domination, would manifest and that they could finally shut us up. Again, they would be sadly mistaken.
Rush is a giant cog in the push to regaining the freedoms we are at stake of losing, but if God forbid he died, the fight would continue. This is a fact. Lefties underestimate our drive, our intelligence and our sheer will. Rush or not, it's on.
Get well and God Speed, brother.

Here is Cheney’s full statement:
"As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.
“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al Qaeda trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe. Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency – social transformation—the restructuring of American society. President Obama’s first object and his highest responsibility must be to defend us against an enemy that knows we are at war."He's so dead on, he leaves me nothing else to say.
In the same article, the author (Mike Allen) ties Cheney's point to a statement Barry made after he was elected, yet before he took office (red is mine):
As indicative of what they contend is Obama’s world view, conservatives passed around the recording of a statement Obama made while taking calls on New Hampshire Public Radio on Nov. 21, 2007: “I truly believe that the day I’m inaugurated, that not only does the country look at itself differently, but the world looks at America differently.(lord have mercy, giant ego much?! and way to bring YOUR PEOPLE together) If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world, they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be (may be?! are you or aren't you?)a Christian, but I also can understand their point of view. …(the view of why many of them are hell bent on bringing down our planes, buildings, and general killing of our people?)
“The world will have confidence that I am listening to them,and that our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world. That will ultimately make us safer.(are we safer now? you've had almost a year of kissing up to terrorists, communists, marxists and socialists. again, are we safer now?) And that’s something that this administration has failed to understand.”(the very beginnings of "Can't quit ya!")
Cheney's the kid on the playground who will fight the known bully to the bloody and bruised conclusion if they even think about taking his lunch money. Consequently, the known bully steps off in search of easier targets. No entertainment here, just a guaranteed can of whoopass!
Let me ask you, if you're on the playground who are you hanging with?
Our very president isn't with us. He thinks he can reason with thugs. He has difficulty calling things what they are, in particular, terrorists. It is becoming clear that Barry's Crew had intel on this guy and refused to use it properly. Essentially, the American public is on the playground having to defend ourselves. Even Barry and Janet acknowledged this fact:
“As Secretary Napolitano has said, once the suspect attempted to take down flight 253, after his attempt, it’s clear that passengers and crew, our homeland security systems and our aviation security took all the appropriate actions,” Obama said.
After the fact. After initial security failed and the terrorist with the makings of a bomb in his drawers was allowed to board a plane with over 200 people on board, and after an American passenger (that would be you or me) jumped him, then "homeland security systems" took action.
That is security? That is how Barry understands better than the previous administration? That is the shining result of his working with thug leaders to make Americans safer?!
When pushed, every day Americans are known for stepping up and in when others are in harm's way, so many times irregardless of their own safety. All we ask is that our president do the same.
Again, those who want to allow dialogue to resolve these issues, can say what they want about Bush and Cheney's hardass stance on terrorists, but they kept us safe for the rest of their time in office. They protected Americans. They saved lives. Maybe yours.
Barry, on the other hand, continues to fail us on every level.

Riddle of the Day: What do OJ and Barry have in common?
Answer: They both love golfing after making serious-faced, but totally bogus, pronouncements of vowing "we will not rest" until they are captured and tried. "They" being the killers that need immediate and swift hammering, and who had the temerity to spoil a perfectly good 18 holes day during a vacay. But, never fear, if you can pull off the badass talk of "not resting" until the job is done, as OJ and Barry would like you to believe that they have, stern words accompanied by squinty eyes are enough when there's still room for 9 of those glorious holes. I bet if you asked Barry and OJ why the discrepancy between what they say and what they do, that their answer would be that they're not just playin' out there, they're thinkin', oh so much thinkin'.
Wow. With Barry and OJ on the job, there's sure to be a crack in the case soon.
Gotta ask yourself WHY of the Day:
During Barry's speech yesterday about the not so alleged panty-bomber (i know if you listened to it like i did while driving, you seriously thought about pulling over on the side of the road. seriously, it's a learned skill to throw old man fists at the radio while yelling expletives and driving carefully at the same time) he called the terrorist "an isolated extremist," even though Al Qaeda is taking responsibility.
Show of hands: Who among you think Mr. Umar's Secret is an isolated extremist? Anyone? Barry, Janet, PUT DOWN YOUR HANDS.
Exactly. No one on either side of the political aisle is stupid enough to believe that horse manure. Nor does anyone think the system worked, or believes the new, more restrictive, system will work. Finally, an issue we can all agree on.
Even though Barry was droning on about the "alleged" terrorist and how "we will not rest" blahblahblah (please help me end political correctness and call this asswipe what he really is...a publicly humiliated, panty-bomb wearing, terrorist), my attention was focused on the way in which he was speaking. Here was the Leader of the Free World addressing a most serious situation and he lacked believability in his threats to those responsible. I've witnessed more menacing 4 year-olds when deprived of something that belongs to them. Barry had all the intimidation of an eight week old Labradoodle, and that's kinda insulting to the pup.
If he wasn't able to communicate his outrage to me, then what of the terrorists? They had to be laughing their behinds off at Barry's shtick. I bet Achmed was having a hard time catching his breath cause he was laughing so hard at his cave-mates acting out Barry's bland "we will not rest" and then pretending to swing a golf club. CAN'T...BREATHE...STOP!!!
Wonder how many others were missing Bush's kickassery, or Cheney's perfected, and you better believe he'd follow-thru, evil eye yesterday, cause I know I was. Bush had his faults, but the American people knew he'd take care of business. With Barry everyone is expecting more hits; we're bracing for the worst. He doesn't command respect, his blandly delivered speeches are useless, because he can't be trusted to keep his flimsy word.
The one consistency that I love about Barry (see?! i do think he's doing something fantastish...) is his willingness to SHOW YOU WHO HE IS on a daily basis. Bravo, sir. You may take a bow.
You know how I loves the funny, YOU KNOW!

Yoiks! Perhaps he was playing the drinking game of "every time someone in Washington mentions the Tea Party, DRANK!"
From Drunky McDrunkerson on the Senate floor to lefty James Cameron calling an autograph seeking fan a "f**king a**hole
Nice. Do I think the fan was due the autograph? No. But I do find it interesting how lefties willingly take your money yet, call you a "f**cking a**hole" if you ask for anything in return.
Speaking of douchebags (what?! it's implied!), how about the-system-worked-wait-no-it-didn't Janet Napolitano?
Well, I feel better with Janet on the job telling us that the system worked, don't you?! Good Job, Girlie!
WAIT!! Americans call foul as they use their common sense. Just because the bomb refused to ignite properly, doesn't mean a WIN for the system. Time to backtrack!!!
Go HERE and see how Janet re-spins the failed terrorist plot.
And who doesn't love that Barry, on vacay in Hawaii, is still quiet about all this. His aides say it's because he likes to get all the facts first before commenting. Fine, get the facts, but drag your behind to a camera and offer as few words of something to those you supposedly want to lead. You can guarantee if one of his children or wife had been on that plane, he would have offered a public thanksgiving for their safety by now. Instead we get a silent, vacationing, president.
“He’ll continue to ask the tough questions and respond appropriately as required,” a White House official said.
But first, TO THE BEACH AND GOLF COURSE!
Priorities, peeps. He sucks as a leader, and that's being kind.
His handlers see it differently:
Part of the reason for the president's low profile: There appears to be a feeling in the administration that putting him out there to address this type of incident immediately would give it added merit. Elevating the status of a man who attempts, unsuccessfully, an act of terrorism in that way also could set off copy-cat schemes.
Yeah, that's what we have to worry about, copy cats. No sense in facing the truth about the terrorists who plot against us, whose goal is to kill each and every one of us. Nah, don't think about that. Let's make sure and not give this act any merit or elevating one man (as if one man is responsible for this). Let's not talk about it. Under the prayer rug it goes. Shhhhh. No talky = no copy cats = safety for America! So easy, I bet they used their Easy Button.
Brilliance abounds in Washington, don't ya think?
To end this entry, I'll bring us full circle back to the Dems, some more drunk than others, accusing the Republicans of bringing America down.
Democrats are retooling and reprising their “Party of No” attack on Republicans in Congress after they unanimously rejected financial reform and health care bills in votes this month.
Well, I do think this retooling and reprising will be helpful to the process in Washington. Since I am part of this Party of No, to show my good faith and in the spirit of bipartisanship, I'll start.
Just say NO to drinkin' and Senate floor slurrin'.
From one Republican to all Dems, I hope that helps. Oh Max, duuuude, I've heard that two aspirin, some hair of the dog, and facing your You Tube humiliation head-on, helps with a hangover.
Party of No, at your service.

Thursday, December 24, 2009
This is the sentiment of the masses today, whether or not Washington acknowledges our anger/disbelief/disappointment over the direction our beloved country, the Land of the Free, seems to be headed.
Dirty Harry tried to make a funny over his mistaken "no" vote with this:
Clearly exhausted, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid mistakenly voted no before changing his vote to yes, which got a laugh in the chamber, especially from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
After the vote, Reid joked, "I spent a very restless night last night trying to figure out how I could show some bipartisanship and I think I was able to accomplish that for a few minutes."
We don't think it's funny, sir. Actually all you accomplished for a few minutes was a big F-U to all Americans opposed to this socialistic nightmare.
Harry offered this statement before the vote:
Reid opened the Senate floor at 7 a.m. and channeled Ted Kennedy: “The work goes on. The cause endures… and yet here we are, minutes away from doing what others have tried but none have achieved.”
Harry to American Schmuck translation: GOTCHA! Finally! Finally, we are on the road to governing your lives in ways we see fit (you people have no idea how to do things. trust us. we are here to help), to dominating the country with our abilities to steal from all, for the sole purpose to line our pockets to spend as we see fit. Your job = make the money. Our job = steal the money to give to those who didn't get the memo to make the money. Kennedy, dear, sweet, dead Teddy, is high-fiving us from wherever he is.
Gives me a Christmas Eve BLECH.
But all is not lost. If you are paying close attention, the cracks before the earthquake can be seen even as we collectively try to dislodge our disgust with Washington. The infighting, the tearing down of the Democratic Party, the pointing and accusing of liberals and radicals is evident everywhere you turn.
* The Senate's healthcare bill is fatally flawed, a senior Democrat atop a powerful committee said on Wednesday.
Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), the chairwoman of the House Rules Committee and co-chairwoman of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, said that the Senate's bill is so flawed that it's unlikely to be resolved in conference with the bill to have passed the House.
* The announcement by Alabama Rep. Parker Griffith that he is switching to the Republican Party is just the latest warning sign that the Democratic Party -- my lifelong political home -- has a critical decision to make: Either we plot a more moderate, centrist course or risk electoral disaster not just in the upcoming midterms but in many elections to come.
* Democratic Rep. Chris Carney received a phone call Wednesday from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) asking him to consider becoming a Republican, a top GOP official told POLITICO.
....But the aide acknowledged that they had gotten “a nibble” from Carney and were now making the pitch that he’d be better off switching parties than running again as a Democrat in a northeastern Pennsylvania seat that President Obama lost by 9 percentage points last year.
* Another bit of disappointing news for House Democrats: One of their leading recruits, businessman Jack McDonald, announced today that he’s dropping out of the race against Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas).
I could go on, but just wanted to give you a taste of things to come, God-willing. All is not lost.
Merry Christmas, my friends. May all you love be healthy and happy, and may we enjoy the holy respite to return refreshed, ready to take back what is ours.
OMGosh, wait! What is the season without a little something for your friends? Here is my humble gift to you from those who used to hold our fates in their hands (um, the English), until we decided we wanted freedom from tyranny, more than their taxing rule.
Enjoy the funny, albeit kinda dead-on, parody of what may be to come (hat tip: Heritage Foundation):
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
Wednesday, December 23, 2009
For the Republican leadership I will spell it out. When you threaten to make the Dems uncomfortable by delaying the vote on healthcare, that you don't care about them whining about not being home for Christmas Eve because of your "delay tactics," yet then cave on the very threat that many Americans applauded (Yes, MAKE them suffer. It's a small pain compared to our suffering when this monstrosity passes), it makes us question your ability to tell the truth, makes us question your ability to lead.
The Senate will still be in session Christmas Eve day, but Democrats and Republicans have agreed to give health care reform a final vote starting at 8 a.m. — 11 hours earlier than originally scheduled. Majority Leader Harry's Reid's announcement means that the Senate will be able to finish its business in time for many senators and staffers to get home for the Christmas holiday.
Way to grow a pair, Republicans. NOT. My question to you is why couldn't you have prolonged the agony for the Dems? Why did you blink? Why couldn't you take charge where you could and show them our spirit of not backing down one step? If I was able to be in your shoes, I wouldn't hesitate to chest-up to the radical left. Bring it. I would have held my ground, even in the face of defeat. I would explain to my loved ones that this moment is bigger than a family celebration that could be delayed. It would be my sacred duty to the American public to stay as long as it took. So, if I would do all of that, why won't you?
Because you're weak. And weakness won't win elections. There's a lot of talk about how we are going to clean house in 2010. My advice to you is don't assume you are safe just because you are a Republican. You aren't. We want leadership. Tough-ass, never blink in the face of radicals, BRING IT, leadership. And if you give us any excuses as to why you can't operate as we insist you do, then as Heidi Klum says, "One of you will be in; One of you will be out."
Dismiss our truth if you like, but we aren't playin'.
Here's where we stand as of this moment (the thursday vote has been moved to 8am):
- Wednesday, 2:00 PM – Vote to approve the Reid substitute amendment. A majority vote is necessary.
- Wednesday, 3:00 PM – Vote to invoke cloture on the underlying bill. 60 votes are necessary.
- Thursday, 9:00 PM – Vote to approve the underlying bill (i.e. the Senate’s version of Obamacare). A majority vote is necessary.
Republicans: We are watching every step you make, listening to every word you utter. We are waiting on leadership. Balls-to-the-wall, unbridled, risking big, inspiring us to greater things in 2010, leadership.
At this point it's all we want for Christmas.
Are you listening?
UPDATE: Because I have WAY too many things to accomplish before the day is out (with a twitchy back no less), I am linking Commentarama for the update in this saga. Seems Mitch pulled of a BOOM! The Republican surrender isn't what it seems.
And by the way, in the comment section over at Commentarama, we offer a fine example of how folks can disagree, yet not be total douches in the process.
Go HERE to read (scroll down to the end of article for update). Thanks Andrew.

Dude, talk about issues. You gots them.
Kerry Picket had a chance to speak to Whitehouse directly after his speech.
I approached (AUDIO) Senator Whitehouse following his speech on the floor, and his responses to my questions were puzzling, to say the say the least. Mr. Whitehouse said he stood by his speech, but would not admit that he was accusing anyone who was against the health care bill as racist. He did reiterate that birthers are part of the group that is against the bill and are attacking president However, when I asked the Senator from Rhode Island what he meant by describing those who do not support the bill as "aryan," he responded "No, I didn't say that....again, pay attention to the speech."
According to the transcript above, Mr. Whitehouse did say what he seems to be denying. Perhaps he should pay more attention to what he says on the floor.
A simple illustration that Dems don't even listen to themselves, to their own words clearly intended to dismiss you as a radical when you don't agree with them. What is clear is that they are intent on forcibly taking what is yours and making it theirs. They couldn't care less what you think; this is all the proof you need, you Aryan birther right-wing militia fanatic racist. Gosh.
They're pissed as hell they might miss the Christmas goose, so they are on the attack against anyone who dares mess with their holy holiday. They have earned that time off, damnit! After every audio sound-bite of a libbie whining about the horrible vindictive Republicans holding up the passage of this evilness, and how they just want to be home with their families like you get to be, I pretend high-five my Senator. I'm convinced that every action the Republicans take against this bill, an angel gets its wings.
As if all the above doesn't rile you enough, how about the fact that within the health-care bill ACORN qualifies for funding:
The provision he cites, found on pages 240 through 248 of the manager’s amendment, requires that six different agencies each establish an “Office of Minority Health.” The agencies are the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.”…According to a Senate legislative aide, the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now could qualify for grants under this provision. ACORN would also qualify for funding on page 150 of the underlying Reid bill, which says that “community and consumer-focused nonprofit groups” may receive grants to “conduct public education activities to raise awareness of the availability of qualified health plans.”
Well now, that is a matter of life and death. Thank you Roland Burris. We couldn't let ACORN die, so many hookers and pimps and child traffickers rely on that money, YOUR money.
Dems are either clueless or they think they are right, either way the fight is on.
Eric Schultz, spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said that Republicans will be in a “precarious” position next year if they’re “telling voters they plan to roll back landmark health care reform, which will have afforded coverage to hundreds of thousands in their state, brought down costs to families and small businesses, ended appalling insurance practices and lowered the deficit.
Oh Eric, pumpkin, you can delude yourself and your minions all you want, but over here in the real world, we are gunning for your peeps and their seats. Given that warning shot, we would like to cordially invite you to your November 2, 2010 SURPRISE, YOU GOTS TO GO! Party.
Can't wait to see your face when you see the poll results...
Monday, December 21, 2009
First there is this:
Senate Democrats said Saturday that they had closed ranks in support of legislation to overhaul the nation's health-care system, ending months of internal division and clearing a path for quick Senate passage of President Obama's top domestic policy priority.
Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) secured the pivotal 60th vote after acceding to the demands of Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) for tighter restrictions on insurance coverage for abortions, along with increased federal aid for his home state and breaks for favored health-care interests.Well golly gee, when you can pay off the thieves we elected, then of course you can get a consensus. Is it a surprise to you that Nelson was bought? Or Lieberman? Or Any-Senator's-Name here? Yeah, me neither. It sickens me beyond dry heaves, but surprises me not.
In the week of all that should be holy, there is also this from John Boehner's office:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) latest health care “manager’s amendment” would STILL levy a new “abortion premium” fee on Americans under the Democrats’ health care plan.
The letter continues to compound the horror with this:
In short, the Reid bill continues to defy the will of the American people and contradict longstanding federal policy by providing federal subsidies to private health plans that cover elective abortions. The new language does include a “state opt-out” provision if a state passes a law to prohibit insurance coverage of abortion, but it’s a sham because it does nothing to prevent one state’s tax dollars from paying for elective abortions in other states.
Again, surprised much? Weary, yes. Surprised, no.
The GOP, God Bless their slow-to-grow-a-pair response:
Republicans, who have been accused by Rush Limbaugh and others for failing to oppose the legislation vigorously enough, have threatened to force Senate clerks to read the entire text of the proposed changes aloud, a process that could consume eight hours or so.
Eight hours of fun for me, but then it's over. Big Whoop.
Mitch McConnell had the best line in this article, the truest line I have seen in awhile, that it was like a Christmas present you wish you could have but didn't think anyone was listening when you dropped hints:
"Tomorrow, there's going to be a snowstorm, and we'll be coming in RVs and everything will be paralyzed as our nation's capital always is when there's a snowstorm."
Firestorm, that's us. Let's not forget that after this debacle of a bill is passed.
Mitch also had the second best line I have heard from a politician in some time:
"This massive piece of legislation that seeks to restructure one-sixth of our economy is being written behind closed doors without input from anyone in an effort to jam it past not only the Senate but the American people before Christmas," said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader.
There is nothing I can add to that. Short, illustrative and true.
Is there anything that we can do to stop this nightmare? We have showed up where needed, hollered when necessary, stood our ground for months, called, emailed, wrote old-timey letters, and spent our own money against this deviant legislation. My gut is telling me they will march forward regardless of our demands. They have their boots on our throats and wallets.
But, in the spirit of Christmas, I want to leave you with hope, with a glimmer of Christmases to come. A little present, wrapped in righteousness, if you will: Remember 2010.
We have 11 months to get it right.
God Bless us everyone.
THIEVES WORK THEIR MAGIC AT NIGHT UPDATE: The Senate voted under the cover of darkness (vampires DO NOT like the white-hot brightness of day) to advance their special brand of evil: **CLOTURE**: 60-40 Middle-of-Night Senate Vote Closes off debate on ObamaCare...
Here's what's ahead:
This is how it works. Reid introduced his amendment Saturday morning. (It's the one that has the Sen. Ben Nelson Medicaid buy-off and other curious features.) Senate rules say there has to be an intervening day between the introduction of the amendment and a vote on limiting debate on the amendment. That intervening day was Sunday. That meant the cloture vote could be held Monday, or any time thereafter. The rules also say that the vote has to be held at least one hour after that next day has begun. So the Senate's Monday business began at 12:01 a.m., and the Reid Amendment vote could be held at 1:01 a.m. (As it happened, Reid himself spoke last, and his remarks went over the mark by six minutes.)
After the middle-of-the-night vote, there will be a maximum of 30 hours debate on the amendment. Then there will be a 30-hour period for a Republican substitute bill, followed by a 30-hour period on the final bill. Reid's schedule calls for a final, final vote on the health care measure to take place at about 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Voila! The bill will be passed by Christmas. That couldn't be done unless the Reid Amendment cloture vote were held in the earliest hours of Monday morning, setting off the final chain of votes and waiting periods. "This is purely to satisfy a self-imposed, arbitrary deadline," says the GOP aide.
What was I thinking? The season of love and forgiveness made me all soft inside. Screw being nice to these bastards just because it's Christmas. I am done trying. They are hellbent on destroying what we have left, they want YOUR money to piddle away on ANOTHER useless and soon to be bloated government bureaucracy, and they clearly do not care what it is you say you want. They are NOT serving you or me; they are serving Barry and his desire to remake this great land, this great land that was built with independence as its cornerstone, in his dependent-on-government-for-life-and-then-we-gotcha image. Screw being nice.

What follows is what I want you to obsess over, to rail against, to let fill your very marrow and give rise to your righteous anger. Helmets on my babies, and maybe a quick shot of tequila or two (yes, i know it's early, but you've got to trust Mama. you're gonna need the liquid courage to get through this mess). The level of deceit and backdoor dealings that we are up against, as freedom-loving Americans, is the only way Harry can pass this bill. The less we know, the better for them. This is posted in it's entirety (emphasis mine).
Thursday, December 17, 2009
The article lists those who are demanding his firing as well as a link to your senator. Empower yourself, act on behalf of all the kiddies we must keep safe from pervs like Jennings, and call.
Story (YOU LIE!) of the Day that made me yell an obscenity that may, or may not, have begun with an "f" and ended with an "ucker": President Obama told ABC News’ Charles Gibson in an interview that if Congress does not pass health care legislation that will bring down costs, the federal government “will go bankrupt.”
That he tells this to Charlie Gibson, with the most I'm Serious! face he can muster in hopes of manipulating you to believe his LIES! is even more snort-producing insanity. Have we finally figured out time/space manipulation, entered a worm hole (who says you don't get no science here?!) and discovered a parallel universe where yes is no and black is white (oh, come on. no need to call me a RACIST over that...), a universe where if you spend a trillion dollars (rough low-ball estimate that I am totally making up, but is probably not far from the truth) that you can't afford to spend, that will pile on the debt, that will break America as we know it, it will magically prevent bankruptcy?
That he goes on national television and spouts these ridiculous untruths (YOU LIE!) is offensive. This "truth" comes from the same idiot who told us that unless we pass and spend the stimulus package, unemployment would reach 10 %. 10%! And there is no time to waste! Depression! Doom! Ack! As of November of this year it was 9.4%, with the stimulus passed. And that number is as a whole. Rates are higher in other regions. In Michigan the rate is approaching 16%. Do you think folks in Michigan are thanking Barry for his brilliant insight on how to fix unemployment?
Barry is constantly chastising Republicans for "scaring" the public. Yet, he uses scare tactics based on lies ( YOU LIE!) every single day.
“If we don't pass it, here's the guarantee….your premiums will go up, your employers are going to load up more costs on you,” he said. “Potentially they're going to drop your coverage, because they just can't afford an increase of 25 percent, 30 percent in terms of the costs of providing health care to employees each and every year. “
Potentially is a guess. I don't want legislation, especially devastating legislation like healthcare, based on guesses and scare tactics. Barry's guarantees mean nothing. Did the stimulus work? Was Cash for Clunkers a good use of YOUR money? How much has it cost to generate "shovel ready" jobs? And now he wants to convince us that he knows how to manage healthcare?
He's a proven liar intent on getting his agenda passed, damning the American people in the process.
But wait, there's more! As the interview progressed he slipped in this gem:
They are?! WHAT?! Why hasn't anyone told us that you folks in Washington can't keep your own house in check? That you taint everything you touch?! You mean a government-run healthcare program is on the brink of bankruptcy and your answer is to pile on?! We should add more to the rolls of a dying public handout? We should throw OUR good money after bad? Why, this is genius! Let the government have more of OUR money AND let them manage OUR health! Wow! Only fools and Republicans could ever ever be against this plan. Or those who hate ponies and children.
Seriously. I don't know how this guy can say the things he says with a straight face anymore. Surely (don't call me shirley!), he must see the dropping polls. Surely, he has a sense of our outrage. Surely, he knows that we are on to him.
Just goes to show, once again, that he has no intent of doing what is right for this country or its inhabitants. He hears us. He sees us. He just doesn't care. We are the fly in his New World agenda ointment. Barry is going to use his time in office to push through what HE wants, HIS radical vision, constituents be damned.
And all I have to do to prove my point, to drive home that Barry's intent is for HIS vision of what America should be and not for what Americans are clearly stating/protesting/actively fighting for, is to utter the name Kevin Jennings.
Kevin Jennings + Healthcare legislation + Barry's vision for YOU = perversion of the American Dream.
Now that's scary...

The gauntlet from Dean — whose voice on health care is well respsected among liberals — will energize those on the left who are mobilizing against the bill, and make it tougher for liberals to embrace the emerging proposal. In an excerpt Kinzel gave me, Dean says:
This is essentially the collapse of health care reform in the United States Senate. Honestly the best thing to do right now is kill the Senate bill, go back to the House, start the reconciliation process, where you only need 51 votes and it would be a much simpler bill.
There it is!
In a nutshell, Dean is pissy that Joe is getting all the attention in this "real reform" fiasco and has indicated that if he doesn't get his way, IE the bill better include the Medicare buy-in, he's gonna take his vote and go home.
The Dems are starting to eat their own. Let's just pray that in the confusion of who gets what, they discover a hankering for libbie blood and this minor back-biting turns into a full blown vampire suckfest until the last drop is drained.
And as always, the Dems stupidity is being blamed on the Republicans:
Democrats are running into one problem after another trying to pass the health care bill in the Senate. Sen. Robert Menendez, New Jersey Democrat, blames the "ideological battle driven by the right wing of the Republican Party," and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Michigan Democrat, says Republicans are stalling the health care bill because obstruction is a "cash cow" for their party.
It's enough to make me gleefully clap my hands and dance a little dance. Court Jesters always have that effect on me.
If that wasn't enough to put you in the Christmas Spirit, then how about Burris:
Senator Roland W. Burris, Democrat of Illinois, has vowed that he will not vote for a health care bill that does not include a government-run insurance plan, or public option.
The funniest part about the article is when Burris quotes Gandhi:
He added: “My colleagues may have forged a compromise bill that can achieve the 60 votes that will be needed for it to pass. But until this bill addresses cost, competition and accountability in a meaningful way, it will not win mine.”
With a dramatic flourish, Mr. Burris said: “As Mohandas Gandhi once famously said, ‘All compromise is based on give and take, but there can be no give and take on fundamentals. Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender.’”Well golly gee, it's common knowledge that if you quote Gandhi, your point must be taken much more seriously than if you hadn't. Poor Gandhi. Don't you think he has to get tired of asswipes using his good words to push their specific brand of evil? He's gotta want to punch some folks in the mouth when they cross the line into manipulating his holy intent. Hey, it could happen; he's human too, you know.
Continuing in the spirit of lifting our spirits in this time of all that is holy, I'll end with the story of White House tourists, Harvey and Paula Darden, who showed up for a tour, but got way more than the brochure indicated:
It wasn't a state dinner, and they didn't crash it on purpose.
Still, a Georgia couple who showed up at the White House a day early for a tour somehow wound up at an invitation-only breakfast with President Barack Obama and the first lady. It left the White House once again explaining how people who were not on an event guest list wound up being ushered into the presidential mansion anyway.
Listen, in all fairness to this couple, I know how things can spin out of control and you can't quite explain the sequence of how you got to the place you shouldn't be. After all, there was The Great Parade Debacle of '04 when I accidentally (still not exactly sure how it happened) drove myself into a full-blown parade. I landed between the Police Horse Brigade and an army of walking, stilted, clowns. Thank goodness I had candy to throw out the window or I would have been totally busted.
I feel ya Dardens. I totally get that "uh-oh" feeling you must have had. That "how the hell am I gonna explain this one" gut-check. More importantly, I like that you did exactly as I did, once realizing your predicament; you totally rolled with it.
So the Dardens served themselves at the buffet, and took their seats. Shortly thereafter, Barack and Michelle Obama arrived and began talking and getting photographs with guests at each table. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, also stopped by.
Darden said it was "quite a treat" to meet the Obamas and the Bidens. But he remains puzzled about how he was escorted into a private breakfast - and he grew a little anxious after the Salahi episode exploded in the news.
Man, I love when the news makes me laugh.
Happy Hahadays, everyone!

Public education anyone?! You vs Them. Basically that's what we're down to. I thought the schools sucked when our kiddo was younger, but today's issues dwarf what we faced.
We homeschooled when homeschooling wasn't cool. I was the running shorts/jeans-wearing/smack-talking mommy amid a sea of prairie skirts/turtleneck-wearing/husband-fearing mommies. My family was one of the few, and I mean very few, who homeschooled for educational reasons.
When I first jumped into the parallel universe of homeschooling, legislation was pending before the Supreme Court that would either make it legal in Texas or outlaw it. We were officially in a gray zone. I was told to never go out into "the world" (boogity boogity) during school hours with my kiddo. If I did, I risked arrest (even though it wasn't illegal). We lived a block from our local elementary school and our situation was considered high risk. It was not unheard of for Child Protective Services to show up unexpectedly at homeschooler's homes because "concerned" neighbors called to alert them of a "truant" child.
I listened to the advice of those who had gone before me. I paid a fee to a lawyer's group that was schooled in the law of our particular situation, and kept their number with me at all times. I kept records of curriculum and progress reports. I did everything to protect my family.
After in depth preparations, considering the wisdom of those who had been fighting for parental rights in this arena long before I came on the scene, I made the decision to give big F-U to those were trying to stop my rights as an American, who were trying to trample my freedoms, and we got on with our lives.
We went out into "the world" whenever needed. We took our daily afternoon walk right past the elementary school for all to see. We answered questions truthfully when asked why our child wasn't in school. We claimed our rights to the freedoms we had and basically dared those who wanted to take them from us to get in line.
Our kiddo was well-protected in the fight. There was never a time that he was in danger from anything other than the idiots that thought they knew better than his actual parents. And those idiots had to come through me.
I have been asked if I had kiddos at home now, would I still make the choice to homeschool. Are you kidding? In a heartbeat. Not that homeschooling is easy, or something one wants to do, but for us it was necessary. Our child had a need the school couldn't or refused to meet (he was three grades ahead by kindergarten), that we became accidental activists served as an unexpected education. Yet, today my reasons to homeschool would be different. Given that parents and their innocent children now face Barry's Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings' Fist Gate (go HERE for a list of stories concerning this issue), the question in my mind is a no-brainier.
Nothing pisses me off faster than pervs messing with kiddos. And Jennings, the founder of GLSEN is the King of Messing With Children. Sure, GLSEN seems innocuous enough. They want to protect gay kids from being bullied and harassed by others, and that would be great if that's where it stopped, but it doesn't.
GLSEN has a recommended book list for gay kids, all gay kids including k-6 grades. Gateway Pundit decided to read those books. Note: This linked material is NSFW and is disturbingly graphic:
What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.
We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.Once you read this report, see the facts for yourself, it should make you ask yourself why would Obama choose this particularly dangerous perv to be the Safe School Czar? Why would Barry want our children indoctrinated with this filth? What is his hoped outcome?
Compromising our children's safety on any level is evil. Jennings and Barry have plans for your kiddos. Barry is showing us who he is when he allows Jennings the power to tell you what your kids will read and learn about deviancy at whatever age THEY DEEM appropriate. And they expect you to sit there and shut-it. Just like Washington tells you how they will spend your money, they are now telling you how your kids will be indoctrinated with filth, whether you like it or not.
The fight, on every freedom-grabbing level, continues....

...appearing on CBS, Lieberman said of the Medicare proposal, "Though I don't know exactly what's in it, from what I hear, I certainly would have a hard time voting for it because it has some of the same infirmities that the public option did.
That makes my head hurt, Joe. Not nice. Doesn't even make sense. You have no idea what's in it, BUT you'd have a hard time voting for it?! Shouldn't you educate yourself first and then tell us what it is you are gonna do?
Joe to Truth Translation: Once I "know" what's in it, I am soooo voting for this. Although, I need to tell Harry to calm down his smell-the-fart acting bit. Can't have constituents getting a whiff of our pretend give and take on their behalf.
And Joe wants you to believe he's a good guy in all this. He's the dude making sacrifices that no one else considers on your behalf, for you...did he mention it's for you? Like this:
Senators narrowly voted Saturday to cut off debate on an omnibus spending bill with $447 billion in discretionary spending.
....Democratic leaders had to keep the vote open for more than an hour to reach the 60 votes.
Personally, I would have rather he stayed home.
Why is it that We the People are being told that we need to tighten our belts, that things are gonna get worse before they get better, that the recession is over!, nope, wait, that we are still in a recession!, but Washington "needs" more taxes and gets free reign OVER OUR MONEY?
Why just this very day there is a story out about the D.C. handing out 15 million in bonuses, despite the recession. And this is just one example of the deep pool of money that used to be yours but has been given to them. You get no say in this. That's how they work. Now, move along, get back to work and earn them some pocket money.
Thieves are running the joint. I wouldn't let ONE OF THESE IDIOTS run my household. I'd be broke, heavily in debt, demanding handouts from you, losing my house, waiting for my shovel-ready job (WHERE'S MY SHOVEL???), insisting you give me money for my clunker and my old appliances as well as strong-arming you into a "donation" for ACORN, all within two months.
Lieberman will vote for this bill. Mark my words. He enjoys being in the spotlight and if he has to walk 5 miles in the freezing cold every Saturday, well by gum, that's what he'll do. He's a politician first. Don't let that adorable Willie Tanner (ALF!) lookalike con you...
As a politician, Lieberman will do whatever it takes to retain the power he has and the Dems know it.
Democrats are have some political leverage, however. Lieberman lost the Democratic nomination for re-election the last time he ran, in 2006, then won a new term as an independent. Even so, he retains his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, a post he holds at the pleasure of the Democratic-controlled Senate.
Oh Joe, three strikes and you're out, baby. I say bring in Mr. Tanner as your replacement. At least we know he has a record of protecting those he loves from the government overstepping their bounds with medical experiments (coughcoughhealthcarecough).

(hat tip: grumpy old man)
There has been lots of speculation about the Dems backing down on the public option, lots of hope inspired by the MSM stories that We, The People have been heard (Whoopee!) and Washington is set to "settle" this issue with compromise.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed support Thursday for a Senate Democratic proposal to expand Medicare, raising prospects that the two chambers of Congress can work out differences on health-care legislation.
The proposal would open Medicare to some people ages 55 to 64, and is a key feature of a deal among senior Senate Democrats that would abandon efforts to enact a big government-run health-insurance program. The deal would also empower the government's Office of Personnel Management to contract with private insurers to offer new low-cost insurance plans.
Gut Says: Don't believe these lying mofos.
Lieberman, the guy who swore he would filibuster a public option and gained my respect, whom we trusted had grown a pair and would stand for the majority of voters who oppose this fiasco, has punked each and every one of us. He is the biggest waffle this side of Waffleville.
First he has this to say:
While Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) stressed in a statement on Wednesday he remained opposed to any government-based insurance program, he said he was "encouraged" by Democrats' latest proposal, which was submitted for an official cost estimate last night..
Lieberman said that the debate over healthcare was at a "hold" until results of the compromise proposal returned from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), and by no means was a deal sealed on the compromise at this point.
"But on this attempt for a compromise, it ain't over by any means," he said. "People who were in the room of 10 -- I wasn't one of them -- said that as far as they're concerned, some of my moderate friends, all they agreed to do was to send those two ideas to the budget office to get evaluated. So that's not the end of this struggle."
Translation: Maybe I won't vote for it, maybe I will. Who am I kidding?! Most likely I will. Daddy's gotta eat, you know. Haha! GOTCHA!
Sir, you disappoint me, and reside on my Crap-On-A-Stick list. Most things are delightful on a stick, but crap on a stick, is still crap. Way to go.
The news about what is taken from this bill and what is going in changes hourly. If the AM-buu-lance scene didn't scare you enough, how about this:A loophole in the Senate health care bill would let insurers place annual dollar limits on medical care for people struggling with costly illnesses such as cancer, prompting a rebuke from patient advocates.
That's right, you sufferers of catastrophic diseases, limits. Maybe they'll give you enough to combat your illness, maybe they won't. It's their choice (AGAIN!), not yours.
Here's a passage that made me guffaw at the Dems stupidity:
Democratic officials of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee would not comment publicly but said the bill contains numerous provisions that will benefit patients with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, not to mention improvements in .
Translation: we'll pay for preventative care, but once you're sick you may as well drag yourself off to the woods, cause we gots limits!
Seriously, how the hell did we get to this place? When did We The People start rolling over for the elected in Washington? But more importantly, when are we going to get serious and take back what is ours? When are we going to rise up and kick their asses to the curb?
I hardly recognize this country anymore. I hear our angry rising voices, yet the effect is minimal.
The hard cold facts (not global warming...CLIMATE CHANGE....sheesh) tell me we are in the midst of a well-planned, expertly choreographed, years in the making, political coup. Our constitutional freedoms are being beaten out of us, one horrifying policy and kiddo fisting policy-maker at a time.
The daily question on my mind, as I witness the wrangling over deathcare, cap and tax, bailouts, stimulus revisited, add your cash drain here, IE who gets the power via our money, because that's what every Barry policy comes down to, is will this coup be successful?
In this season of hope, grace, mercy and forgiveness, the fight rages on. May we never falter in our quest for freedom. Freedom from tyranny. Freedom for all.
And Santa, if you are listening, all I want for Christmas is for Barry to FAIL, just like his secret new ambulance system.

He's the man. Couldn't say it better.
Global Warming is a theory, that's an established fact. A theory that is changing the fabric of THE WORLD. And that fabric is scratchy and pokey and not at all like comfy cotton or that weird wicking stuff I wear when I run.
Well done, brother.
History is filled with "real science" that, over time, comes undone under the weight of fact. Earth as the center of the Universe, anyone? Flat-Earthers, anyone? Unicorns and Santa, anyone? Soon, we'll add Global Warming to that list, although Gore would take me to task for calling it that as he has renamed this false science turned religion to Climate Change to cover all bases. Is it sunny? CLIMATE CHANGE! Is it wet? CLIMATE CHANGE! Is it cold? CLIMATE CHANGE!
I think most of would agree, regardless of political affiliation, that we want the facts. Let the facts stand and then we'll face whatever is before us. What we don't want is money hungry whores feeding us a pack of lies, YOU LIE!, in order to build their portfolios. If the science is factual, it can stand the heat. If not, then prepare for the onslaught of being poked in the eye with very sharp sticks, cause we are done being manipulated for your gain.
We want real science. We want real leaders. We want the truth. We can handle the truth. You bandwagon, Al Gore believing, Global Warmers, not so much.
Sometimes history is staged as farce. The juxtaposition of the climategate emails and the Copenhagen conference on global warming is such a moment.
In Copenhagen, the world's political leaders will preen about their love for the planet and make phony promises about protecting it. Meanwhile, the hacked emails from the University of East Anglia contain deeply disturbing revelations about the science underlying the entire gig.
When scientists start manipulating data, you have to ask yourself why. When Presidents and their administrations support known flawed data, go as far as to mock those who aren't onboard with the movement, you have to ask yourself why. When folks who have knowledge of flawed data, yet escalate their support regardless of the growing falsehood, you have to ask yourself why. When larger countries bully smaller countries into accepting the flawed data as truth, you have to ask why. When schools start indoctrinating children with flawed science, all the while extolling the need to excel in "real" science, you have to ask yourself why.
Global Warming is serious business. There are billions, trillions, to be made at the hand of this hoax.
It's one more way to shackle us. Healthcare, Cap and Trade, Add What Pisses You Off Here....these are the lies Barry will use to enslave us all.
If Harriet Tubman were still alive, God Bless her soul, she'd be planning another underground railroad because the derailment of our society is before us.
