The New Mentally Ill…

For almost 10-years now there have been discussions regarding what qualifies One as Mentally Ill.

This debate took a new step forward this morning.

With Barack Obama’s Executive Gun Control, and the Physician Requirement to report patients who are ‘Mentally Ill’, comes an important question.

Are You Mentally Ill?

Well, let’s see…

Depression is a Mental Illness. Are you taking Any Anti-Depressants? Prozac? Zoloft? Paxil? Celexa? Lexapro? Effexor? Pristiq? Cymbalta? Remeron? Wellbutrin? Elavil? Pamelor?

You’re Mentally ill.

Anxiety is a Mental Illness. Are you taking Any Anti-Anxiety Medication? Xanax? Ativan? Klonopin? BuSpar?

You’re Mentally ill.

Mood Instability is a Mental Illness. Are you taking Any Mood Stabilizing Medication? There are many such ‘Stabilizers’… let’s just say,

Do You have PTSD? Mild or otherwise?

You’re Mentally ill.

ADD or ADHD?

You’re Mentally ill.

OCD?

Yep.

Eating Disorder? Yes… too much or too little.

You’re in the club.

Seeing a Psychiatrist because… parents?

Still good.

AND… wait for it… Are You collecting Disability for any of the above?

Odds are… You’re up by default!

The Objective of the Left is to rid the Population of the ability to resist their Horrific Collectivist Ideas.

They are fully aware that The United States was founded on Individual Rights and paramount to those Rights is Free Speech and the Ability to Resist Tyrannical Government should it arise.

Socialists recognize that the Public has never, historically, enjoyed their institutionalized nepotism and Elitist wielding of Power over the ‘Stupid Masses’. And because of that, removing their primary source of self-defense remains a priority.

But they need you to BEG Them to enforce the removal of this defense… in the name of safety.

The push to Make EVERYONE Crazy has been going on for decades. From Mommies Little Helper to today’s myriad of
doses to make the World a better place.

And what if Doctors don’t report you?

The Lawyers are ready to place Liability Suits as fast as they can get their paralegals tapping away at their keyboards.

In the End, This is just one of the symptoms of Obamacare we all warned you about. It’s about control. It’s about you being kept. It’s about removing your ability to resist the Poison that is Leftist Progressive Socialism.

They have the rest of the World and they’ve screwed that up.

They’ve taken control of Cities and States within our Borders and they’ve screwed Them up.

Now they are Aiming for the entire Great Experiment in Self Rule….

So they can Screw that up too.

There is a Historical Consensus…

Socialism Always ends in Oppression, Destruction and Death of Innocent Citizens.

Where it hasn’t, it will.

Where it has, it has been Legendary in its Horror.

Why is there a single person alive still entertaining any variant of Marxism?

Because Force is a Drug. And Humans are Addicted to it.

It’s the only real Mental Illness.


Does Anyone Listen when Socialists say it Out Loud?

George Soros states National Borders are the Obstacle.

“His (Viktor Orban’s) plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

(Bold and Italics mine.)

If your desire is not for a One World Overreaching and Nepotistic (Crony Socialist) Government Mr. Soros, then why are National Borders an Obstacle?

Bill Gates defends Climate Change as a Building Block of Socialism.

“Even if you have a new energy source that costs the same as today’s and emits no CO2, it will be uncertain compared with what’s tried-and-true and already operating at unbelievable scale and has gotten through all the regulatory problems.

Without a substantial carbon tax, there’s no incentive for innovators or plant buyers to switch.”

(Bold and Italics mine.)

So… Overreaching and Nepotistic Government (Crony Socialism) creates the ‘regulatory problems’, and Bills Gates calls for More Overreaching and Nepotistic Government (Crony Socialism) as the Solution.  It’s the Arsenic Cure.  Your Doctor prescribes a teaspoon of arsenic a day to cure your headaches.  You return to him complaining you feel even worse… so he tells you to double the dosage.

The Same can be, and has been, said repeatedly regarding Obama Care and the Socialization of Medicine here in the United States. And it’s outcome was predicted by all of those who have witnessed Socialism at work World Over.  It’s an Abortion.  The Left is now preparing to Demand yet More Crony Socialism as the ‘Solution’ in the form of Single Payer.  Some of us said repeatedly the ultimate failure of Obama Care was the desired outcome from the beginning in order to set the stage for full Destruction of the Greatest Private Healthcare System in the World.  I continue to believe the ‘Affordable Care Act’ is failing right on schedule.  Jonathan Gruber and Paul Ryan should be proud.

Rich Leftist Progressives will say, just as all Evil People throughout History, what they want to do to you Out Loud.  They write articles, books, pamphlets.  They give speeches and round tables.  They start Foundations designed to promote their forceful desires.  You don’t need to concoct conspiracies…

All you need to do is listen.  All you need to do is pay attention.  All you need to do is makeaneffort.

Yet, we endlessly find ourselves fighting Useful Idiots on both sides of the political aisle distracting us from addressing the truly Sinister among us.

But I suppose to be truly useful one must never recognize they’re an Idiot.


When our Highest Court decides Words have No Meaning…

The Destruction of the Greatest Health Care System in the World through Government Takeover aside…

What’s in store for the Constitution of the United States?

It is now confirmed that ‘legal’ means whatever the person assigned to define it decides it means. This is serious territory we now find ourselves in.  In case you were wondering, this is what 9 out of ten Banana Republics and Dictators who run them recommend.

To find the ‘meaning’ the 6… Six… two-thirds… super majority… of Supreme Court Justices arrived at requires the complete disregard that the obfuscation was Intentional.  It was Subterfuge.  It was a Ruse perpetuated by those who sincerely believe the American People (You) are Stupid and Must Be Governed by the Self-Anointed Smart Folks.

It is Gruber Government at its worst.

And, this is the new ‘Legal’ standard with which all things will be judged.

This precedent is a very Big Win for One Specific Group… made up of Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Fascists, Marxists, Liberals, Progressives, Leftists, and Establishment (RINO) Republicans…

The Anti-America as it was Founded… the Anti-Capitalist… the Anti-Freedom… the Anti-Liberty… the Anti-Individual… the Elitist Scum have Won in more ways than One.  And They’re not finished.

Now is the time to panic…

We are in trouble.


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.


Obama not Listening?

We are hearing the Lament from the Main Stream Media that the President doesn’t seem to be listening…

When has he?

Socialism must be Forced upon the People…

They’re not going to want it.

Obama Care has never had the approval of a majority of the population in any poll. Never.  Not once. Not now.

Socialized Medicine was Forced upon the American People without a single Republican Vote.  Not one.

It was Forced Upon us.

Amnesty does not have the approval of a majority of the population. Not once. Not now. Not at all.

It will be Forced Upon us.

The President said today, in no uncertain terms, ‘what motivates him and his staff will not change’.  Clearly, from his 2006 ‘The Blueprint for Change’ to the Present Day, it is Socialism that motivates this President and his Staff… as well as his Party.

So someone tell me what has changed?

The Position of Socialists is Your Stupid and Must be Forced to do the Right Thing as Socialists see it. And that’s what we have been subject to for the last six years. Why would anyone… anyone… think the next two years of President Obama Administration is going to be any different?

Six Years ago A very Famous person said “I Hope He Fails!”.

I too hoped that would be the case.

But, he hasn’t.

At least not from the point of view of a Progressive Socialist.

Marx must be proud.


ObamaCare Penalizes the People It Claims to Help

ObamaCare: picking on poor people because, why not?

By Logan Albright

posted 061314

Remember how ObamaCare was going to make health care affordable and accessible for everyone? Remember how we were told we had to vote for a government takeover of one sixth of the American economy to level the playing field and make things fair for the nation’s poor? Remember how the rich had to be forced to pay their fair share for the common good?

Yeah, you can go ahead and forget all that. Not only hasn’t it happened, the actual results have been the direct opposite of what was promised.

A new report from the Congressional Budget Office reveals that the yearly penalty from ObamaCare’s individual mandate is expected to fall on 4 million Americans. Of those, 1 million are classified as low-income, and 200,000 are actually below the poverty line.

You read that right. The massive health insurance law that was ostensibly designed to make the health care market more fair and equal is actually imposing an additional tax on a million low-income people who can’t afford the inflated premiums they are legally required to buy. As is so often the case, big government is actively punishing the people it claims to want to help.

The CBO report also estimated that 30 million Americans would still be uninsured by 2016. For those of us who understand human behavior and incentives, this comes as no surprise. The fundamental flaw in central planning is the fiction that people, who have free will and minds of their own, can be manipulated by policy like pieces in a puzzle, to behave in ways that “society” deems optimal.

Of course, people don’t work that way, and studies like this one reveal the fallacy in treating individuals like numbers. As much as progressives would like it to be otherwise, you can’t plug human behavior into a bunch of fancy equations and expect a certain outcome. You can’t mandate health insurance on 300 million people and expect them to just roll over and comply.

Barack Obama has always been hobbled by his tendency towards micromanagement and his idea that societal problems can be “solved” like a Rubik’s Cube by a particularly clever operator. When 10,000 pages of regulations fail to get people to behave the way he wants them to, his answer is always another 10,000 pages.

To the rest of the nation, not chained to the ideological underpinnings of government health care, the fact that subsidized premiums provided on the health insurance exchanges have been vastly higher than promised was only to be expected. Individuals all over the country have been experiencing sticker shock as their health insurance bills skyrocket—that is, if they are not dropped from their plans outright. Only committed central planners seemed surprised that the imposition of a bloated, inefficient bureaucracy on the health insurance market would result in higher costs.

Big government programs never help the people they claim to help. They always end up rewarding well-heeled special interests and Beltway insiders instead of the truly needy.

Still, it’s rare to have so overt an attack on the poor. Most other social programs do indirect harm through limiting opportunities or prohibiting productive behavior with trumped up claims of “consumer protection.” ObamaCare attacks the livelihood of low-income families outright.

All the talk of amending or “fixing” ObamaCare is misguided in the extreme. The only logical course of action for dealing with a monster that openly, remorselessly hurts people is to kill it, and give freedom a chance.


“Every time I read about a Teabagger ranting about how socialized medicine will destroy this country I think of the VA system. There it is, a huge and vastly important universal healthcare system—government run, single payer and therefore socialist—right here in the brave and privatized United States: The Veterans Affairs hospitals.”

I personally find no story here… because this is not new to any of us who were PAYING ATTENTION when Government Run Health Care was being Forced upon this Great Nation.

However, for those of you just now waking up, the body of this Story is HERE. It’s worth the quick read and Illustrates the Full Out Campaign to Re-Write History so the Voting Population of the United States would beg for Socialism and the Government Take Over of our previously Private and best in the World Health Care System.

The linked Story is only a few of the Cheerleading quotes for Obama Care…  But you get the point.

When the Life of your Ideology comes First before All things, this is what you get.

Lies, Hiding the Truth and Manipulation of what small amount of Reality might escape the News Editors.

And yes Mr. Golob… it was those Damned TEABAGGERS ranting how Socialized Medicine will Destroy this Country.

Please Remember that.


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.


Fabricating a War on Women?

In the latest salvo a story has been introduced to the narrative that implies someone cares about Hillary’s age

While this story should be moved past with no notice, it seems to me to be another building block in the “She’s a Girl! And You’re Sexist!” Theme Hillary will have to run on.  Considering her poor record as Secretary of State and Senator of a State she never before lived in, what else does she have?

We mentioned last week the “Breaking News” regarding Tom Sizemore’s claim of Bill Clinton’s infidelity.

While Everything coming out of Sizemore smells of poppies, the claim was like shouting “The Sun’s coming up!  The Sun’s coming up!”.  The fact such a claim was not unbelievable allowed the story to find legs in certain entertainment circles read and watched by the very 18-34 Single Mothers Hillary needs to show up in 2016.  Because this constituency finds their information on various Entertainment Websites like the Wonder Wall and Radar Online, in addition to Top 40 radio stations, TMZ, VH1 and assorted Late Night Comedy Shows it stands to reason this is where these stories will repeatedly appear.

Having watched the Clintons with interest for years, it remains my opinion the Bill Clinton affair story was the kick-off of what will be a continuous dribble of propaganda attempting to perpetuate a War on Women narrative with the implication Hillary is its most Visible Victim.

So back to Hillary’s age…

Why is it important?

It’s important because of what it is Not.

It’s Not a discussion of Hillary’s Progressive Ideological Foundation.

It’s Not a discussion regarding her only disagreement with Saul Alinsky was his belief that the Socialist Revolution couldn’t be fomented from the inside.

It’s Not a discussion about her associations with the SDS.

It’s Not a discussion about her belief in Socialized Medicine whether it’s incarnation is Obama Care or Hillary Care as she promoted it in the 90’s.

It’s Not a discussion regarding Hillary securing a Senate Seat in a State she had never lived only because she polled well there.

It’s Not a discussion of her role in fabricating a story about a video and how it led to the Death of Ambassador Chris Stephens and those who tried to help him.

It’s Not a discussion of why we, the U.S., left the above men to die without any assistance being sent their direction.

It’s Not a discussion of what the standing of the United States world-wide was like prior to her being Secretary of State and what it is like now.

What it IS?

It IS the advance team preparing the field for the repeated application of the Gender Card… since there’s no Race Card to play this time.  It IS an attempt to get those women who consider themselves Victims to identify with her.  It IS an attempt to persuade women, and plaid footy pajama wearing men, to see her as something she is not while chanting “Isn’t it time for a Female President?”.  (Not just any Female of course… just Hillary.)

It IS Symbolism over Substance.

And why not?  It seems to pass for Reason in the modern mind.

We’ll see how it goes.  Seriously… we’ll see it in the media.  Unless you’re a Misogynist.  Then you’re just denying your woman hating ways… Jerk.


Good News! Your Cancer hasn’t Metastasized…

Oh Wait… that was the Bad News.

“The Good News is we’re going to wait and do nothing about it for three more years just to make sure it does.”

Would you continue seeing a Doctor who said this to you?

Well, this is what we’re hearing from The White House who can make up their own law.  The Administration has Unilaterally decided to postpone the full implementation of Obama Care for three years.

Why?

Because Dummies out there are not climbing on board Socialized Medicine!  Dummies.

It seems you liked the “old” system where people were dying in the streets and babies starved.  So you’re A-holes too.

It also appears you all don’t like the “much better and more affordable plans” being offered that cost you 3-times as much and make sure all you guys can get your Hysterectomy and you gals can get your Prostate Exam for “Free!”

And because all you Selfish Jerks don’t see how important it is to keep in place all these brand new, never before seen, great paying (Way Better than what you earn!) government jobs associated with the takeover of Medicine by the State…

We just need more time.

So,

Delay, Delay, Delay.

“Maybe with more time we can get your mind right.  If not, we will have this all institutionalized and it’ll be too late for you to do anything about it anyway.  Really… isn’t it liberating not having to make decisions for yourself?  Can I get you a shot of Vodka?  We’re thinking about making the National Drink.”

Trivia question:  What do you call a Leader of  Country who can make up Law as they go?  (“Vladimir” will not be accepted.)
