Obamacare: Why Are We Kidding Ourselves?

Small doses comrade, small doses.

Small doses comrade, small doses.

Anyone read, watch or hear about Harry Reid’s quote from about two and a half months ago when he stated that the ACA should be considered a “stepping stone” to Socialized medicine?
Of course you did, who didn’t?

Anyone see or read any of the SCORES of quotes from Obama, going back to AT LEAST 2003, in which he too has voiced support for and vowed to push to establish Socialized medicine in America?
Yeah, it took you a while but you finally found “Obamacare Trojan Horse To Single Payer” on Youtube and now you know what those of us who cared knew during Obama’s first campaign.

Anyone hear any of the masses of “lesser” progressive domestic threats attempt to disparage America for NOT embracing Socialized medicine?
I know, stupid question; We all seek out the truth so as to make OUR OWN informed assessments as to what’s going on behind the media spin, don’t we?

So why, for the love of all things intellectually dishonest and self-deceiving, do we CONTINUE to discuss “the ACA”; a program created to fail so as to create for Obama, Reid and the rest a “legitimate” reason to come back to us in the near future and push to hop to that next “stepping stone”, when WE SHOULD BE DISCUSSING Socialized medicine?!!!

Are we REALLY so controlled by the media or afraid of the topic that we’re all going to pretend we’re utterly clueless as to the ultimate intent behind the ACA, refusing to speak of WHAT WE KNOW TO BE TRUE until such time as the administration or congressional Democrats have “introduced” known facts into the political discourse?

Seriously America, THIS is astounding!!! If you’ve not seen, heard or read any of the quotes mentioned above and are therefore inclined to reject any and all questions of your boy king or his “signature piece of legislation” and their association to Socialism that’s not my issue. Use the machine on which you’re currently reading this post to READ the hell UP already!!!

If you’re one of the increasing number of open supporters of Socialism infecting this nation, kindly GTFOut!!! You’re idea of liberty, personal freedom and self governance, or UTTER LACK THEREOF already exists all over this earth. Pack your sh:t, take as many like minded sleeper agents as you can find with you and if you don’t mind, please allow America to remain the beacon of hope to those all over the earth currently suffering under the kind of oppression you’ve somehow allowed yourself to be convinced YOU WOULD PREFER!

Regardless, can we collectively grow up, toughen up, wise up or whatever it takes to shift the debate to the REAL issue at hand?

Here, I’ll get the conversation rolling:

Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the Socialist state.

Zach’s Killer Catfish or The Idiot Fisherman

Great White Shark

I was reading a news story about a kid taking a catfish barb to the neck and it reminded me of the following experience. I know it has nothing to do with politics but while typing it up for the comments section I couldn’t stop laughing so I figured I’d share it here.

The shocking account you are about to read is sadly totally true.

My oldest son Zach was about 7 or 8 years old and he and I went out cat fishing one afternoon.

Almost immediately after his first cast Zach’s pole starts going crazy and he pulls in the biggest fish he’d ever caught up to that point. Pretty small for a cat, maybe 14 or 15 inches but his biggest and he did it all by himself with me coaching him all the way. The kid couldn’t have been more proud and I had to be beaming myself.

He’s crazy excited, I’m crazy excited, we’re both just beside ourselves, high fiving and cheering. It was awesome…until I grabbed the fish and proceeded to attempt to remove the hook from its mouth.

Somehow while I’m holding it, this thing finds a way to stick its dorsal fin straight up and I take a spike in the palm of my hand. It hurt like hell but I sucked it up and continued to try and remove the hook, a little gun shy now to hold his dorsal fin down with my palm.

The next thing you know this fish does a little twist and slips out of my hand but not before I take another hit from one of his side barbs in the back of my hand right at my first thumb knuckle. That one REALLY hurt and now I’m bleeding like a stuck pig from both wounds. In addition, the fish is now on the ground and squirming and flopping all around and getting dangerously close to the water’s edge.

At this point I’m borderline afraid to touch this thing again and my left hand is throbbing in pain and bleeding profusely. So I grab the fish by his tail just before he makes his way to the water and toss him up by a large rock.

Now I’m pissed and Zach is kind of freaking out from all the blood I’m oozing everywhere. Thinking I’ve got this thing right where I want him I walk over to the fish, put my heels together and spread my toes apart making a sort of “V” with my feet corralling this thing between my feet and the rock and wondering what the hell I’m going to do next because at this point I am in fact afraid to touch this stupid fish again.

Well, I didn’t have to wonder for long, as while I’m standing there regaining my composure and bleeding to death, this little S.O.B. flops yet again and sticks a barb right through my boot and into the very thin skin on the side of my foot.

I immediately jump back from the pain and utter shock of being attacked yet again, and hit the ground right next to another rock just a bit smaller than a bowling ball.

Now I’m absolutely crazed with rage and reeling in pain but I refuse to let this tiny fish kick my ass. How could I? My son is standing there watching the whole thing and probably wondering at this point who is going to come out on top in this battle between man and beast. Not to mention how he’s going to get home if his fish kills his dad.

At this point I’m not thinking at all. All I’m doing is bleeding, likely screaming some choice words, though due to blocking the moment out I can’t say for sure, and wanting this fish dead as I’ve NEVER wanted anything before.

So I jumped up, grabbed the rock, raised it over my head and smashed that fish’s head…and about half of its body.

The next thing I know I snap out of my pain induced rage and look at my son who is standing there utterly speechless, staring at what’s left of his catch.

I limped over to him, put my arm around him, careful not to get any blood on him and said, “Nice job son. That is one hell of a fish. Biggest one you’ve ever caught. But I think I picked a bad week to quit chewing”. I gave his line a little tug and the hook came right out of what was left of the fish’s head as if mocking me. I dropped the mangled half fish in our basket and we left all of our gear right there on the jetty as we drove to town so I could get a can of chew before returning and catching a few more far less deadly specimens.

When we walked into the house that night, me all bloody and limping and Zach still pretty proud of his mangled half fish, I explained to my wife what had happened and she thought it was the funniest thing she had ever heard. I on the other hand attempted to block the experience out and it’s taken me years to recover to the point where I’ll speak of it.

Zach is in college now and I’m happy to say he wasn’t too terribly scarred by this experience. As a matter of fact, he’s by far the best fisherman I personally know having surpassed any skill I might have had LONG ago.

Ishmale, The Old Man and the Sea, these guys have got nothing on me. For I have battled the meanest, most vicious man eating fish stick to have ever lived and somehow I survived to tell the tale. And Zach and I still laugh ourselves silly whenever we talk about his killer catfish.

 

Becky Gerritson, Defender of Liberty

 

 

I have just been moved, inspired, humbled and even a little ashamed of my own inaction by the testimony I heard given in the congressional hearings on IRS abuses against what appear to be conservative non-profits. I have included the full video as I feel every American NEEDS to hear the testimony given by Becky Gerritson of Wetumpka, AL.

Mrs. Gerritson’s impassioned testimony to the Ways and Means committee sent goose bumps over my entire body. I have watched her give her opening statements several times and even gathered my children around the television so that they too could hear the inspiring words of this great American patriot. Mrs. Gerritson renews my hope and faith in the American people and the principles that built this greatest of nations. I‘d like to believe that Mrs. Gerritson’s statements will be heard all over America within days if not hours but as is clear in much of my writing, I have absolutely NO FAITH in our press to offer the people of America anything that they deem “unfit” for our consumption so I MUST give a summary of her opening statements and I pray that this woman’s words will inspire any and all who read or hear them.

Mrs. Gerritson explained to the committee that she and her husband became concerned with our government’s out of control spending back in September 2008 with the first 700 billion dollar bail out. Mrs. Gerritson’s concern became a call to action a few months later when in January of 2009 it was revealed that yet another 787 billion would be squandered on further bail outs, handouts to foreign nations and unproductive industries. She explained how she started hearing about others all over the nation who were just as shocked and concerned with reigning in our massive federal beast and how this concern was birthing a grass roots movement called the Tea Party, a movement dedicated to lower taxes, smaller government and placing “we the people” above our paid servants in government. Mrs. Gerritson, her husband and her daughter were moved to draw like-minded citizens in their small town together to do what they could to have their voices heard in Washington.

Mrs. Gerritson stated that she applied for 501c4 tax exempt status for the Wetumpka Tea Party in October of 2010. She stated that the group’s $850 application fee was cashed seven days later and that she was told she would be contacted within 90 days but that their group was forced to wait for 459 days before any response was received. Once they did finally hear back from the government she was asked for 90 pieces of additional information including lists of donors, donation amounts, the names of any volunteers that may possibly be running for office and which office they may be running for as well as detailed contents of any and all speeches given at their meetings. Of course, none of this information is required for 501c4 status. All requested information was to be provided under threat of the law.

In total, 635 days passed before the Wetumpka Tea Party’s application was approved just days before the 2012 presidential election. This begs the obvious question; Who among us could put the IRS off for two years without dire consequence?

Mrs. Gerritson told the committee today that she was not a serf or a vassal seeking mercy from her lords and that she is, “a born free American woman, wife, mother and American citizen and I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place”. Mrs. Gerritson was nearly moved to tears as she stated the following: “We are patriotic Americans. We peacefully assembly, we petition our government, we exercise our right to free speech and we don’t understand why the government tried to stop us”.

In wrapping up her opening, Mrs. Gerritson elicited a round of applause with these words, “Many of the agents and agencies of the federal government do not understand that they are servants of the people. They think they are our masters and they are mistaken. I’m not interested in scoring political points. I want to protect and preserve the America that I grew up in. The America that people crossed oceans and risked their lives to become a part of and I’m terrified it is slipping away”.

The statements by the other five individuals to address the committee today were just as poignant and most definitely worth articles of their own. But I was particularly struck by Mrs. Gerritson’s statements as they embody everything that we as Americans should need to know about our government and its place in our republic.

What I’ve just witnessed is nothing short of a few of the owners of this great nation putting their elected representation on notice that they are overstepping the boundaries set on their power. Our representatives are there to uphold The Constitution and ensure the rights within are extended and defended, without hesitation to every American citizen.

In light of these hearings and all that is being disclosed, it’s interesting that the Tea Party seemed to all but vanish after the 2010 midterms. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they didn’t simply disband and go away but were being intentionally prevented from participating in an election in which the current administration feared they might support, in Obama’s words, his “enemies”. Apparently someone in Washington just couldn’t let another potential “shellacking” be left to chance.

God bless Mrs. Gerritson and her family and the millions like her across this vast land and God bless this greatest of nations. May we rediscover the principles that have served us so well for 237 years. And may this land once again become a sanctuary of freedom, liberty and self-governance.

Rage Against The Deceptive Media Machine

burning effigy

I can’t believe what I’ve just read. I was minding my own business, wrapping up the weekend and grabbing some quick headlines before bed. NOW, I’m mad as hell and will MOST DEFINITELY NOT get enough sleep tonight as I MUST at least attempt to right some blatant wrongs at the New York Times.

Yeah, yeah I hear what you’re saying, “But IGetItAlready, why would you even bother with some low rent drivel printed in the New York Times”. And in most cases you’d have a great point and I would be going to bed right now. However, I am utterly sick to death of our so-called media being so astoundingly strident in their efforts to influence our laws, our policies both foreign and domestic and our very political processes, so much so that I can’t let this shit slide! FFS do NONE of these “journalists”, “reporters” and lobotomized talking heads have the first clue as to the founders’ vision of the role an HONEST, UNBIASED and TOTALLY UNINVESTED media should play in our free republic?!

What’s that punk? You didn’t go into the “news biz” to play some role envisioned for you by a bunch of dead guys some 237 years ago? Fair enough wise ass but have you bothered to consider for a moment that perhaps YOU’RE NOT EVEN HALF CAPABLE OF RUNNING A GLOBAL SUPERPOWER ON NOTHING MORE THAN YOUR OWN OPINIONS AND WHIMS?!!! Not to mention snot nose, that THIS particular superpower is what it is today ONLY because of our unique form of government and founding documents. None of which make ANY mention of dirt bags like you being required, expected or even allowed to manipulate or influence ANYTHING!!! So spare us all your, “I’m going to make a difference and change the world” bullshit. If that’s what you’re about go to med school and cure a disease or something. Whatever you do, please keep your predictable opinions in the same dark closet in which your fear of a well-informed public lurks.

Alright…I’m back. The article in question was written by some quack named Nelson D. Schwartz and was printed in May 5th’s New York Times. The article is entitled, Immigrants Are Transforming a New York Town and the town in question is Port Chester, NY.

Aside from some ridiculously amateur or perhaps moronic editing errors(do as opposed to due, are you kidding or are you in fact a kid?), this “piece”o.s. is a joke that fails to ever become funny. In paragraph 3 Mr. Schwartz starts hitting us with the liberal’s best friend; the one in a million, you’re more likely to be attacked by a grizzly bear, a school of piranhas and a Yeti all on the same day than ever meeting one in real life kind of case. You know what I’m talking about. It’s like the way in which liberals want to hang rationalization for industrialized murder, the end effect of which we’re JUST BARELY having reported to us in the trial of Kermit Gosnell, on the minute minority of abortions that occur as a result of rape or incest. Or the way they like to associate legal gun owners and those who value ALL of our constitutional rights with these crazed, social rejects who rather than doing humanity a favor and simply offing themselves, opt to shoot as many other people as possible on their way out. Or the way in which they fight tooth and nail against any measure meant to ensure the integrity of our electoral process, claiming that there are some Americans who are for some reason incapable of acquiring ID…even after several of the states in question offer to make IDs available at voting stations and in the case of SC, even an offer of free public transportation to anyone needing a ride to go get an ID. In this particular case the minority in question is some illegal immigrant who after invading our sovereign nation opened his own business.

Apparently Mr. Schwartz believes we should all be astonished by the fact that some guy who broke our laws in coming here, rather than living off the system, took full advantage of all that America offers her citizens…not to mention apparently ANYONE who can scale an unwatched fence or walk across an invisible line, and made something of himself; As if ANYONE is so stupid as to think this has NEVER happened to any of the  likely 30 to 40 million or more illegals currently here. (Source: Look it up yourself but I assure you 30 to 40 million were the numbers being batted around when Bush tried his hand at amnesty. It would seem that immediately after Obama was elected, somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 to 80% of our “uninvited guests” decided to leave…Yeah right, and I’ll take a side of beachfront property in Colorado with that load of horseshit please…thanks) Where are all the stories on all the LEGAL Americans who have been robbed of their very lives by drunk drivers and gang bangers who aren’t even supposed to be here? Oh yeah I forgot, those are the kinds of stories which get “bumped” to make room for a last minute adorable cat video or literally ANYONE who wants to announce their sexual orientation to the world…just so long as their sexual orientation is anything but straight.

Schwartz goes on to say he’s withholding this guy’s last name due to the risk of the guy being deported…As if. The guy owns two restaurants and Mr. Schwartz already sells him out if anyone truly cared about “deporting him” (idiot!!!) when he writes that this man will soon be opening a 3rd restaurant and that “his food has a following on Yelp. com. This guy could NEVER be deported by THIS administration. FFS under Obam-nasty (yeah, that’s mine…you can use it if you want) we’re giving a pass to people with up to three misdemeanors. Now how are things going to look for the great Americanizer if this guy gets sent packing while we’re rolling out the welcome mat to others with a historical tendency to assault people? Gimme a break Schwartz!

Later in the article Lawrence F. Katz, a liberal professor of economics at Harvard is quoted as saying in response to his own belief that we need a freer flow of people from other nations in order to foster growth, “No doubt some individuals are harmed but the benefits outweigh the costs.” Now just chew on that for a moment. This jackass sees LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS as acceptable losses in this blatantly obvious battle to import millions of foreign voters. Good lookin’ out buddy. Each and every American citizen is fortunate and should be proud to call you a “fellow American”.

Next Schwartz writes of a LEGAL immigrant from Guatemala who is a CPA in Port Chester and who admits to serving a clientele of both legal and illegal immigrants. Right out of the gate I’ve got to call bullshit OR this Guatemalan is a piece of shit. How many LEGAL immigrants do you suppose jumped through all the hoops, filled out all the forms and coughed up all the cash to become Americans only to turn around and aid an illegal invasion of their new home? Whatever the number, it is EXACTLY the same number of domestic threats that need to be shot for treason and disposed of.  Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that this little Latin paradise is currently 59% Hispanic? No mention of the breakdown between legal and illegals but I think the sudden surge in Hispanic immigrants to the town since 1990 kind of says it all. It’s gotten so bad in Port Chester that local businesses are being forced to hire Spanish speakers in order to serve “their community”.  And why wouldn’t this place attract illegals like flies to vomit? What with treasonous filth like this CPA willing to cater to the criminals and local businesses willing to participate in prejudicial hiring practices as opposed to helping our new friends assimilate. At any rate, this CPA states that he’s beginning to “get more business owners asking for help with accounting and taxes. REALLY? You mean these people have been paying attention to the handout they’re being offered and understand that one of the stipulations will be to pay some form of back taxes? Do you think the fact that having already forked over at least SOME money to “el Tio Sam” when it’s time to come clean would presumably play well for them is ANY motivation for this sudden fit of tax consciousness? Simple cause and effect…stunning isn’t it.

Perhaps the most amazing fragmented thought in this propaganda piece is when he throws us a token non-Hispanic business owner who celebrates the fact that he can fill any opening within minutes while paying minimum wage…yeah liberals, these points are being billed by Schwartz as further BENEFITS of this sanctioned foreign invasion. I don’t know about you but this guy sounds like one of those demonic “one percenters”, sticking it to the little guy and laughing all the way to the bank. At the very least, he’s clearly a racist fat cat who refuses to “pay his fair share”…wouldn’t you agree? (Man I LOVE watching shit run full circle) 😉

Schwartz FINALLY attempts to scrape the surface of reality when he mentions that “some economists” believe that “increased immigration can reduce wages SLIGHTLY for SOME native-born workers…”. He also mentions that in this town of 29,000, ten percent of the population lives below the poverty line which has put “a strain” on local social services. He goes on to mention the fact that area schools are overcrowded due to “children of immigrants flooding the education system”. “Flooding” mind you. Of course Mr. Schwartz stops at “overcrowding”, careful not to mention any of the direct effects overcrowded schools have on the children who have every right to be here and whose parents are paying the bills expecting that their children will receive a quality education in return. Nope, let’s just paint a harmless image of some teacher being forced to fetch a couple of extra chairs for these new kids who talk funny. He also mentions the fact that longtime residents are bitching about homes being occupied by “many more residents than zoning laws permit”. (Is breaking a zoning law a misdemeanor? Just wondering…) But as in Obama’s America in general, it’s pretty clear that “longtime residents” of Port Chester have been reduced to second class citizens as we attempt to alter the political complexion of America via criminals who want nothing to do with BEING American.

Of course our old friend Schwartzie quickly turns and runs from his feigned attempt at full disclosure by unilaterally declaring, “at street level, the economic impact of the immigrant wave has largely been positive”. Perhaps that’s because Mr. Schwartz’s definition of “street level” fails to take into account ANY of the economic effects created by the few cons to this illegal invasion that HE JUST MENTIONED!

The bottom line is this article should never have been written and Mr. Schwartz and so many others like him are in fact “playing their roles”. But they are roles they’ve created for themselves out of  their over inflated sense of self importance. And if you hadn’t noticed, these self imposed roles have absolutely NOTHING to do with “journalism” or disseminating FACTS to the public they were intended to SERVE.

I’ve said it before and it’s worth repeating; The next American Revolution will begin with the dead, rotting corpse of our collective media being tossed into the streets.

Obama Blindsided by “Double Entendre” or Sleazy Joke?

Our Chameleon in Chief, never one to be outdone when it comes to blending with any crowd, made a joke at a LGBT fundraiser last night that has some questioning his choice of words.

While thanking Ellen DeGeneres for the introduction she had just given him Obama said, “I want to thank, uh, my, wonderful friend, uh, who, uh, accepts a little bit of teasing about Michelle beating her in pushups …. ah but I think she claims Michelle didn’t go all the way down.”

I could write it off all day as a simple poor choice in wording but considering the venue and the odd way the president handles the situation in the video, I’m not so sure.

I’m not going to speculate on exactly how or why those words ended up on that particular teleprompter. However, Obama’s long pause after the dubious line and his and the crowd’s reaction are interesting to say the least. The interpretations of the incident range from CNN’s assessment that Obama had been “blindsided by a double entendre” to Limbaugh surmising that the oral sex reference was intended.

Regardless, the same media who would have gleefully covered a similar comment from former president Bush on every network news outlet and late night program including Saturday Night Live, isn’t touching this one. Yeah, I’m stunned too.

Check the video and let me know what you think.

Domestic Terrorism Over Dog Crap

A lesbian couple who felt discriminated against when their home owners association asked that they pick up after their dog are being accused of staging a hate crime against themselves.

Aimee Whitchurch and Christel Conklin of Parker, CO were arrested and charged with criminal mischief and false reporting and Whitchurch is also being charged with forgery over an incident that took place last October. At that time the couple reported to police that someone had spray painted “Kill THE Gay” on their garage door. The following day they reported finding a noose hanging on their front door. The women reported to police at that time that they felt their “attackers” were their HOA and neighbors after run ins over unclaimed dog crap.

Whitchurch denied that they had staged their own attacks and said, “This is a fight I started. This is a fight I’m going to finish. This is a fight I’m right on, I have every right to live where I want to live.”

While I agree with the ladies that they have every right to live wherever they want, I also know that they signed a contract to live where they do and apparently letting your dog crap all over the place and not picking up after him is against the rules…go figure.

So now this community has been not only terrorized with the belief that there was some crazed hater among them, but they’ve also had a couple who vow to keep living there attack, slander and then demonize all of them by implying that a request to pick up after their dog equates to an attempt to run them out of the neighborhood.

Now to put things into perspective, were one of the neighbors charged and convicted of this act they would be charged with a hate crime and likely lose the house while doing their time.

I’m going to do my best to follow how this one ends but really the charges say it all.

Winds of “Change” Targeting Our Kids

Obama sets his sights on public schools as a new source for the holy grail that is increased federal revenue.

In yet another sign of Obama’s idea of stimulating “change” a Utah high school has been fined $15,000 by the federal government. Davis High School in Salt Lake City has been found guilty of a simple mistake that is likely happening all over the nation. Davis high, in compliance new federal babysitting laws, was careful to turn off the school’s lunchroom vending machines for each day’s lunch period but had been forgetting to turn off machines in the school’s book store.

I should apologize at this point for not opening with a cautionary disclaimer as I’m sure I’ve just offended most of you with images of high school students having soda readily available during lunch. But it gets worse…

As a result Davis High is being charged 75 cents per student for the duration of the offense. In an interview with Salt Lake City’s KUTV, Davis High Principal Dee Burton said all told, the massive $15,000 fine will more than consume all of the profits the school has earned on vending sales this year that would otherwise have funded their arts program.

Burton goes on to describe some of the inconsistencies in the federal program whereby students may drink soda and eat whatever in the cafeteria as long as it’s not purchased on school grounds during lunch period. Under the federal law schools may sell Snickers bars and ice cream due to their “nutritional value” and sugar filled sports drinks are still ok but not gum or licorice.

Among the many “unintended consequences” of this heavy handed federal imposition is the concern for the safety of mobs of students who are leaving campus in order to eat what they want before rushing back to school rather than going to the cafeteria for healthier choices as was the stated intent of the law. In addition, Burton says those valuable arts program funds generated by vending sales are falling fast.

Why must we beat ourselves to death with this utter idiocy over and over? The federal government is an absolute curse to nearly everything it touches. Based on their track record of success within the DoE alone this restriction is statistically more likely to increase childhood obesity than reduce it. The reason is simply because government feels the need to touch far more than was ever intended. From nearly destroyed Eco-systems due to environmental protections on non-native species to defunding educational programs  in an attempt to control what children eat, we’re always given some “aww shucks, we didn’t think that was going to happen” crap but I’m no longer buying. When you seek to create a one size fits all mandate on millions of FREE people you had better think long and hard about it and consider ALL potentially harmful side effects. Failure to do so says a great deal about you and your respect for your fellow Americans and their freedom. I think that we the people, the same people who sustain those who burden us with such useless nonsense, should expect our representatives to make a public apology and explain how we’ve come to such miserable, counterproductive consequences so quickly after passing this law. How else can we expect good laws until the ability to say, “It was a good law until the other guy messed with it” is taken from these clowns and someone is forced to admit a mistake?
