Anything to Save It!

(A Blast from the past…)

Anything but Repeal It!

The Democrats (And Establishment RINO’s) want Any “Fix” that keeps Obama Care on the Books…

President Clinton is the latest to offer up a “fix” to Obama Care by suggesting the Current President should champion a change in the law to allow Citizens to keep their current Health Insurance if they like it. “Allow”…

“Allow” me to bypass the obvious question as to who do these people think they are to “Allow” me to do anything… and get to the bigger issue at hand.

The Destruction of the Health Insurance Companies is analogous to Cortez burning his ships when he landed on the New World.

(Realize, the Government may tolerate a few Health Insurance companies to exist so long as they can be completely controlled via regulations… the Fascist flavor of Socialism.  It is what We have “Allowed” these people to do in almost every Industry.  This brand of Fascism is why the EPA and OSHA exist.  Without these agencies Insurance Companies, not to mention Self Interest, would be the mechanism for spreading Best Practices.  Get the connection?  Do you suddenly see why “Big Insurance” is the enemy of the Left?  They represent competition to Big Government.  Therefore the Left believes They must be removed, or at a minimum diminished to the point of uselessness.  And we’re witnessing it happen as I tap this out.)

There is no, nor will there be, any “fix” to the complete and total destruction of the Health Insurance Industry we are watching before our eyes. The only solution to what is an ill-advised attempt of Government to wrest control over 1/6th of the Economy while once again removing all Free-Market Competition, Voluntary Exchange and your Right to Choose is a complete Repeal of this Disastrous Law.

Anything else is simply an effort to preserve the Big Government, aka Socialist, gains achieved during the first two years of Democrat Control over The United States.

Anything else is just buying time while you “Get Used” to Government telling you what you must do when it comes to purchasing Health Insurance.  Then what you eat, and drive, and activities you pass time doing etc.  Because it all has to do with your Health.  The only “fix” Liberals want when it comes to Health Care is enough time for you to get your mind right and accept that Government is the Answer.

But they Need you to scream for them to “Fix” it.  Which is why they all seem to be standing around watching the Health System Implode.  An Implosion they caused.  All they’re waiting for is for you to blame the Insurance Companies and beg Government to step in… with Single Payer or what is otherwise known as Government Run Health Care.

It has been the goal from the beginning.  It is still the goal.

And, Once the deed is done there can be no turning back.

Social Security was supposed to be a temporary Insurance Safety Net.  Temporary… But given enough time you folks began counting on it and decided it should be permanent.  So permanent in fact that the politicians took your cue and spent all the money collected for it on other things because they knew you would never let that stream of income to Government go away.  But they didn’t spend it on important things, things we could have done without.  They wasted it.  They allowed their friends to have it.  They squandered it.  Because who needs discipline when the money just keeps rolling in?  And You gave them permission.  You are Still giving them permission.

This is no different.

Don’t let this happen again.

Demand Complete Repeal!

When Democrats stand up and say “Republicans have never liked this law and just want to get rid of it!”, you should stand up and say “You’re Right!”  “We Warned You!”  “In Fact, We Warned You with Plenty of Time not to let this Happen in the First Place!”  “Are You Listening?”

All this was bad from the beginning and it needs to be done away with, not preserved with some “fix” created to placate you until you “see the light” and concede your Freedoms to those in Washington.

It is no mystery that I’m not a fan of about 80% of the Republican Party.  But it is a Party that must move to Repeal this hideous legislation.  It is a Party that needs to step around the likes of John McCain, Chris Christy and Lindsey Graham to save this country from the mistakes of Democratic Socialists world over.  If there has ever been a rallying point, or issue, of our time it is this.  We were not there to fight against what we now know to be huge wastes of money and drags on productivity of the past.  But we are here now.

The push to Socialize Medicine must be stopped.

And in the future, Anyone who even suggests such a Scheme should be disqualified from serious consideration when it comes to holding power in this Country.

If it’s Affordable, Why Does it Need to be Subsidized?

Sometimes the simplest questions are never asked.

I ponder this as I read an article regarding Oregon finally getting rid of their State Health Care Exchange.

I realize this next statement will not be a surprise for most of you who read my inanities, but…

We Don’t Have Any Money!

And When I say “We”, I mean The United States of America.  And When I say “Money”, I mean actual wealth upon which to base our currency in order for it to represent a frozen form of production at a consistent level.  And When I say That… I mean we’re quadrupling the money supply by printing dollars out of thin air, which is one of the single most horrific jokes ever played upon the American People.  We are devaluing (read “stealth taxing” or better yet “Stealing from”) Everyone who has a dollar without them understanding it’s happening to them.  Just 10-years ago a ‘dollar’ was worth, let’s say, a $1.  Today it’s worth $.25.  And we’re supposedly using some of that ‘magically new’ money to Subsidize something which we were sold as “Affordable”.  Remember Obama Care is actually called The Affordable Care Act?  Of course you do.

This entire legislative abortion needs to be repealed.

It needs to be replaced with legislation allowing Insurance Companies to conduct business across state lines as all other businesses are allowed to do by virtue of the Commerce Clause.

The Insurance Companies would be quick… quick as in that very day… to have plans ready for Individuals to sign up and possess Health Insurance.  Not Health Care mind you… but apparently having Health Insurance make you Healthier, rather than having Health Care.  (I know, I’ve learned a bunch of stuff over the last 6-years that I never knew or thought could be known.)

The Solution Seems pretty Simple if you don’t allow certain corrupting variables get it the way.

But then… how would the State Legislators and the good, honest, folks in DC extort… sorry, control… no… influence the Evil Insurance Companies… wait, no… their Evil Voters… not Evil!  Illegal? No.  Informed?  Um… let’s just say Voters,  and when I say influence I mean make sure their Voters get the very best Health Insurance from Companies which donate money to certain political campaigns… no, no, that sounds bad too…  Evil Companies?  Or, Evil Political Campaigns?  It just all get’s so confusing.

I’ll have to think about this over a six-pack.


Minority Rights!

One Must believe in Minority Rights!

There is no greater responsibility we all have than to protect the Minority…

If you agree with me then you Must also find yourself on the side of protecting the Individual, as it is he who is the Ultimate Minority.

This understanding means there cannot be special rights for Religious Groups, Racial Groups, Age Groups or Groups based on Gender.

It means that all Men are created equal.

It means all Crime is Hate Crime.

It means all men must have the same Inalienable Natural Right to Freedom and Liberty before the law.

It means that a person’s station in life does not afford them special consideration.

It means men cannot elevate themselves above the laws others must abide by.

It means anyone who opposes the Protection of Individual Liberty and Freedom is a Bigot.

It means the Only Rights are Individual Rights.

Only a perversion of the word Minority could mean anything else.

Don’t Forget Single Payer was always the Goal

It’s time to remind ourselves that Government Run, Single Payer Health Care was the true goal of Obama Care in the first place. We must remember that Obama Care was never designed to work. In fact, it was designed to fail from the outset.

But here’s the Rub for Democrats:

Obama Care was Supposed to position the Insurance Companies as Evil Bad Guys trying to make sure you’re sick and dying. (I know… that would seem to be self-defeating as the Insurance Companies would be the ones having to pony up for your care, but don;t let reason get between you and the Socialization of Medicine.) Needless to say, We are not blaming the Insurance Companies. We are Blaming the most destructive Law Forced upon all of us in our lifetimes. We are Blaming Obama Care, and by connection Obama and the Democrat party.

Whoops.

But… we’re Stupid. Right Jonathan?

I want to bring this back up because you will be hearing from many of those Community Organizer types suddenly conceding the argument that the Affordable Care Act is not Affordable and those who crafted it are Acting as if they don’t Care.

There is a reason for this.

These Diehard Democrats are the same people who were ready, when the time was right, to scream about Obama Care from the very beginning. They have been waiting for You.  They have been waiting for you to Blame the Insurance Companies.  They have been briefed by the Elitists, such as Gruber et al, on the plan and were told to wait to create a disturbance until You were the angriest.  And while they flamed the fire of your discontent, they would be carrying the Banner of Government Run, Single Payer, “Universal” Healthcare as the ONLY solution.

Well, they are seeing the writing on the wall, And instead of waiting for Godot, they are coming out in opposition to Obama Care now, because the threat to the Crown Jewel of Socialism is very real after the latest mid-term elections and Republican takeover of the Senate.

These sudden ‘revelations’ are last ditch efforts to achieve the Dream.

This amounts to running out of ammunition and loading up the silverware into the cannon.

So pay attention…

The problem is you will be offered up these Democrat voices as turn-coats to the cause of permanently nationalizing our Health Care System.

They are not.

In reality they are true believers in the Social Utopia dreamt of by all Democrats.

In closing I offer you the impetus for this post.

Meet Burke Beu and the article titled “This Democrat is Giving up on Obama Care”.

The above linked article illustrates exactly what we need to remember while we work to repeal Obama Care. Be wary of those who at first blush seem to be on the same side of this issue.  The comments associated with this article serve to illustrate the trap we face if these people are embraced as allies.

They are not.


You’re Stupid.

And, because You’re Stupid, the Smart People don’t owe you the Truth.

Why?

Because They Know You’re Stupid and You will not Understand the Brilliance of Their Ideas.

They also Know due to Your Stupidity you may not agree with what They want to do, and that would necessitate further explanation and possibly debate. Both of which could lead to not getting done what They want to do.

Finally, They consider Themselves ‘Elite’ which means Superior… to Stupid people like You. They might have been told this throughout their lives by family and friends, or they may just believe it because of a mental disorder. But none the less, They feel Themselves to be Smarter than You. This is what justifies, in Their minds, Their Lying to You because you’re too Stupid to understand anyway.

But Wouldn’t They be afraid We would figure it out?

No. Remember, You’re Stupid.

So Who are these People?

They are composed of Socialists and Fascists (a subgroup of Socialism).  They reside in the Totality of the Democrat Party, but there exist many Republicans and Independents who subscribe to the same Ideology.  There are even some very confused Libertarians out there as well.  Almost always they can be spotted by how they espouse a belief that they are superior to others… who are not around to hear them.  So listen carefully.

And, Why are they Lying exactly?

The Elitists will Lie to you because They believe there should be no debate about Their ideas. They also believe You must be saved from yourself… by Them. Neither of which seems to be warmly received by those They label Stupid (You).

When did this Start!?

It’s a behavior as old as time itself. The idea of Slavery under a ruling Class of Elites has been the basis for every Government on the Planet from Monarchy to Dictatorship.  It is alive and well in China, Russia, Mexico, Canada, Europe and the rest of the World.  It just so happens that the last couple of hundred years it’s found a home in the ideology of Socialism, and it’s variants, here in the U.S.  They arrived at this power by telling you, your parents, and your parent’s parents, that they will ‘fight for you’ and ‘champion equal rights for everyone’.  When in truth, the only thing they give you is that which doesn’t directly effect Them negatively and/or threaten Their Power.

A single Glaring Example; They have taken over the Public Education system in order to keep all of us as ‘Stupid’ as possible.  Without much energy you can see Their Elitist condescension through the fact that They refuse to send Their kids to the schools They run.  I have stated many times, if we want to clean up our public school system Force EVERYONE to use it… or restore the right for EVERYONE not to use it.

How do We Stop Them?

Very Good Question.

First, Make an Effort to really understand what’s going on around you.

Second, Stop listening to the Old Media which was taken over by Liberal Leftists 70 years ago.

Third, take the time to understand the ‘Why’ behind the U.S. Constitution.  This alone will lead you to an understanding of Individual Freedom, Liberty, Right to Property and Limited Government… all four of which are anathema to Elitists.  (Warning: While Socialists may say they are for these things, it is only for Them… not for You.  Why?  Because You’re Stupid, remember?  Of course they will never champion Limited Government as They need Government Force to make you do what They expect you to.)

Such a course of action will also lead you to understand Free Market Capitalism and the Invisible Hand… both of which the Elites despise as neither requires Their supposed brilliance.  And, both leave you in charge of making decisions for yourself… which cannot be tolerated, because… wait for it…  You’re Stupid.

In the End, Stupid is as Stupid does.

So Stop listening to, and worse, electing, those who Believe you are Stupid.

Because that’s Stupid.

Please Don’t be Stupid.


Feeling Comfortable

Or,

Speaking Freely…

Or,

When Socialists get together behind Closed Doors…

Let’s get something Clear.  The Statements made by Jonathan Gruber, a Primary Architect of Obama Care and a M.I.T. Professor, were far from Stupid.

And that is the point.

Gruber’s comments were not Stupid… they were Honest.

While it’s not news to me, it might be to you…

Socialists and their Ilk see you as Stupid.

You are to be fooled, lied to and manipulated.  The only thing Socialists believe you can be counted on to do is the Wrong Thing.

Gruber, et al*, know what’s right for you… always… in every situation.  Just ask them.  (You’ll have to pretend to be one of them and do it where they think they’re safe.) They’ll tell you.

What’s an important lesson to take away from Gruber’s comments, regarding your Stupidity, is the Leftist media circling the wagons to reposition his speaking as “Stupid”.  But listen carefully… no one on the Left is saying his comments are Not True.  What is being said is it was “Stupid” for him to say them.  And what they mean is it was ‘Stupid’ for him to SAY THEM OUT LOUD WHERE YOU CAN HEAR THEM.

The Democrats are angry because you heard one of their own speak freely.

You heard a Highly Regarded Progressive Liberal being Honest about how they ALL feel about You.

Nothing is surprising by these comments.

Many of us have personally heard such statements throughout our lives.  But the Democrats, and some Republicans, have been very careful not to say such things where they can be heard by those they speak of.  Kind of like spelling out words in front of your Children…

Personally I like having Socialists be honest and open.  Just like I prefer my Racists to be honest and open.

They are Poisonous, Ugly and deeply Evil people.  And I want to know exactly who they are.

So now you know about Obama Care and how it has been based on Lies throughout it’s being Forced upon the American People.

But it’s not just about Obama Care.

It’s about how Socialists see the World… and most importantly, You.

When you subscribe to the idea that the ‘Ends justify the Means’ as Socialists do… lying to the ‘unwashed masses’, the ‘idiots’, the ‘little people’,  is just part of the Job.

They are even beginning to look for moral relativity by saying “Everybody does it.”

But hearing it for yourself… puts some things into context, like an Elected Representative publically stating “You have to pass the Law to Find Out What’s in It” as Nancy Pelosi condescendingly did.  She knew what was in it, she knew it was the Crown Jewel of the Socialists Transformation of the United States… it’s just You are too stupid to understand it.  And, on the outside chance you did understand it, you wouldn’t like it.  So Stop asking Questions, Shut Up and Pass It!

Well, they might ‘all lie’… but that doesn’t mean We should tolerate it.  Ever.  From any of them… ‘our side’ or not.

This goes especially for you ‘Liberals’ out there.  Don’t think for one moment that associating yourself with Democrats get’s you a pass…  it’s a Fatal Conceit.

They think you’re Stupid too.

Only worse…  they think you’re Useful.

(*et al refers to Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Leftists, Socialists, Fascists, Elitists, Hollywood, Environmental Activitists, Man-Made Global Warming Religion Subscribers, John McCain, anon.)


Demand Your Pap Smear!

I just learned today that my insurance covers me for an annual Pap Smear. If it wasn’t for Obama Care I wouldn’t have known.

Apparently I was covered last year too. I can’t believe I’m wasting my money on exams I’m not utilizing. I might have serious problems and not even be aware of them… And it would be MY fault!

So I’m getting started right away.

I’m not exactly sure what to do as I’ve never had a Pap Smear, or a ‘peek and poke’ as our neighbor puts it, and I’ve read online that at my age it should have been a regular process for decades now. As usual, I’m Very Late to the game.

So I’ve placed some calls to friends to find out which Gynecologists they like and which they don’t. Then I can find out if the good ones are in my network and have my GP, more likely his Nurse, send a referral.

I’m kind of hoping to find a Male Gyno… I’m not sure I’d be comfortable with a Female. But I guess I’ll take whoever is most recommended.

Oh, and my wife is scheduling her Prostate Exam tomorrow.

She’ll LOVE that.


Please Impeach Me.

Or at the very least, please try… PLEASE!

My Fellow American’s,

Of all people I put John Kerry in charge of the State Department… John Kerry!

I’ve thrown open the borders so hundreds of thousands of people could come into the United States and live off your dime with the expectation they will get to vote as Democrats.

Hell, I even sent the gifted bust of Winston Churchill back to the British!  They tried to tell me it was okay and I could keep it, but I insisted!

For God’s sake, I Gave the Queen of England a complete catalogue of My speeches…

Number Monkey’s Part Duex

Following up with the Hairy Math used to generate an Administration Pleasing Unemployment Number… or at least the best they can fabricate from their backside… comes the Census Bureau.

A total revision of the questions asked households will render comparison to past Census Numbers impossible.

From the New York Times:

“An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.”

“We are expecting much lower numbers (Of Uninsured! – Mike) just because of the questions and how they are asked,” said Brett J. O’Hara, chief of the health statistics branch at the Census Bureau.”

I promise you that is not how it will be reported…

It will be reported that Obama Care is a Huge Success and we’re all better after we destroyed the finest Health Care System on the Planet and Replaced it with Socialized Medicine.  So Pat your Collective selves on the back… Comrade.

Should someone be asking “Why does any revision need to be conducted in the First Place?  If there is to be ANY revision of the Census shouldn’t it be to stop asking intrusive questions the Government has no business asking?  Might the revisionists focus their attention on correcting this instrument of measurement to perform exactly and only what the Founding Fathers intended it to?”

Nah.

At what point does the entire population recognize that the game is rigged and if it’s not there is some Socialist, somewhere, working on making it that way?

And if we Do Figure this out… do We, at that point, demand truth?  Some point?  Any point?  Do I even have a point?

I know… that would require paying attention which requires makinganeffort.  So, no.

But, just in case you didn’t think the Bureaucrats at the Census didn’t have a sense of humor!

“Another Census Bureau paper said “it is coincidental and unfortunate timing” that the survey was overhauled just before major provisions of the health care law took effect. “Ideally,” it said, “the redesign would have had at least a few years to gather base line and trend data.””

Well, Of Course.

There should be a laugh track played behind that paragraph.  At least then I wouldn’t feel like be intelligence is being assaulted.

Sorry to bother you with this… we can all go back to our beer now.

Wait!

A related post I just read from The Last Refuge:

“Five years ago many of us were talking about why the White House would take Census Polling responsibility away from the Dept. of Commerce.  At the time we did not know specifically why they were doing it – but we sensed it was nefarious.    We predicted it was a typical Chicago Politics strategy to mold comparative data that directly would show consequences to long-term policy.  We were right.”

I had forgotten about that…  I could blame it on the beer, but that would be ridiculous.


It’s a Catastrophe!

This is all we Hear from the Republicans…

But our Answer is a Loud and Clear “So What!?”

As Leftist Progressives we don’t need Obama Care to work. We just need enough Time to remove all of Your Other terrible Options.

It’s our “Put Some Time on it, You’ll Forget” Strategy.

This is not a New Strategy, it has Been our Strategy from the Beginning.

It’s the same Strategy We Liberals use for everything because it works.

We Do it for You.

We Promised the most Transparent Administration in the History of Administrations?

Put some Time on it… you’ll Forget.

We Promised to Reduce the Debt?

A little Time always helps… you’ll Forget.

We closed the Open Air Monuments during a Government shut-down over delaying the Individual Mandate… something We Did Anyway… to Punish Veterans?

You just need time… you’ll forget.

We Up-Armed Mexican Drug Cartels which resulted in the Deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and some our own Border Agents?

Rub some Time on that…  you’ll forget.

We Abandoned our Diplomat and his staff in Benghazi to Die at the hands of well-trained Islamic Terrorists in the name of “looking Nice on the World Stage”?

You just need a little Time… you’ll forget.

We Used the IRS to target our political opponents for fiscal destruction?

Time is all you need… you’ll forget.

We, the self-proclaimed Party of Privacy, have the NSA collecting every bit of electronic information from your credit card purchases to you e-mail and text messages then storing them forever?

We suggest Time…  you’ll forget.

We Promised Cheaper Health Insurance?  We Promised you could keep Your Doctor?  We Promised You could Keep Your Plan?

Obama Care is a complete failure?

Easy…

We Need More Time!

And during that time You can Help us demolish any institution that might offer a way back.  Together we’ll Destroy Big Insurance Companies, Big Hospitals and even Big Doctors in order to assure there is no return.  We will berate, demean and demonize those Idiotic Citizens that come forward and imply openly that Obama Care has failed them.  With your Help We will paint all Politicians who get in our way as Evil.  We will Force all Young People, except for You, to buy it just like We do to get Them, except for You, to vote for us.  We just need more Time…

And in Time, you’ll forget ALL of this.

And We Win.

And just to make sure… We’re all going to talk about Equal Pay, Amnesty, Gay Marriage and Minimum Wage.  Don’t Worry, we Realize All of these issues have Reasonable Answers, but they aren’t simple for you to Understand and would Never supply them Anyway.

And, according to our Focus Groups, You don’t really want to Think about all this stuff Anyway.

So We Win Again… and again… and again.

So Please be Afraid of Those Evil People Who Say Things You Don’t Want to Hear!

Send your Donations to Organizing For America in denominations of .10, .25 and .50 cents.  Help Us Help You Forget.

Do It NOW… before you absent mindedly start doing something else.
