Radical Dem Greed Doomed "Healthcare"

The Democrats could have easily passed a healthcare long ago if they would have been so radical as to think they could pass their current plan. It did not need to be 2,500 or whatever pages it has grown into. It did not need to be so huge. It did not need to aim at a government take-over of the healthcare industry.

They could have filed a 100 page bill with portability from state to state, allowing people to buy their insurance from any state in the country. It could have even made some of the dumber state mandates optional, why does a young single man need maternity coverage?

If they threw in some malpractice tort reform it would have even gotten some GOP support.

Then they could have taxed the high-cost health insurance plans without raising such a fuss and spent the money giving the poor and unemployed health insurance VOUCHERS.

It would have gotten 60 to 64 votes in the Senate easily.

But no. The leftists had to ram a bill that would force EVERYONE to pay a monthly fee to pay for abortion. An attempt at a radical dream of making every America culpable for murdering babies by the thousand. To destroy private healthcare and private insurance with government healthcare over several years, something in their socialist dreams.

They could have easily extended healthcare to the poor but they got greedy, they got Marxian stars in their eyes and went nuts with it.

That is why they have been failing, they is why they MUST fail.

The GDP did NOT grow 5.7% in the 4th quarter, you can bank on that. The growth that there was in the private sector was in inventories, which could be a BAD sign. Once those warehouses get full and nobody is buying the orders to factories will fall drastically.

Government spending HURTS the economy, not helps. Paul Krugman is a moron, he thinks government can spend us out of a recession. Spending money we do not have.

The debt spending of money we don't have might give us a faux recovery for a little while, but the crash will be much worse because of it. That is right, the governments actions is going to make the fall hurt worse and for longer than it would have been.

State of the Arrogance - Ban the 1st Amendment?

Present "I, Me, My" Obama gave a horrible State of the Obama speech tonight where he said he better than us little people and we should know what is good for us. This is a very common view in Washington DC where fumes from the swamp poison the water.

Tonight, though, a sitting President has slammed the Supreme Court of the United States with his baseless lies. The SCOTUS recently ruled that the President cannot ban books and films (& more) because they contain political content, even if they were funded by "corporations".

That is right. The case was not about corporate funding of campaigns, that was just a side show to whether or not the first Amendment applied to anything but individuals. Should the media have freedom of speech? Should bloggers? Should a church? Can the government ban you from writing a book if you mention the name of a candidate in a negative way?

You must remember that a "corporation" can be non-profits, churches, community groups in addition to for-profit businesses. Indeed, the First Amendment also protects our right to assemble (even into a corporation) and this freedom of association would also be in jeopardy if the SCOTUS has ruled any other way. Imagine your grassroots association being denied the power to make its voice heard.

Imagine if Dear Reader PromTus decided to ban a book by Sean Hannity from lets say Doubleday, on the grounds that Doubleday is a corporation. It is a power that could easily be used to smite dissidents against his rule.

So, as the O sends his toga to the cleaners and luxuriates in his Roman bath and eats his wagyu steak at $135 a pound, he has decided that we -the people- should not be able to think for ourselves. He is the center of his own universe and he believes it should bend to his will.

He even believes the Supreme Court should obey him. He even thinks it should help him to nullify the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights!

Economic derailment

The State of the Union will focus on "fiscal discipline" a year after the government passed an $850 billion "stimulus" boondoggle that stimulated nothing. Of course the President won't mean anything he says, except that he wants to spend more and more money that this country does not have.

The President will also announce a new Stimulus Bill, since the one last year did so much good for nobody. This one will be much much smaller than the one last year. Oh, that should do nothing at all. Political graft, corruption and paybacks is what we had from the last Stimulus Bill.

The AP now reports that the Obama administration will announce an $8 billion plan to launch high-speed rail corridors around the country. You can already imagine land being seized in imminent domain and lawsuits from environment groups and tax payers feeling a pain in their wallet.

Talk about a massive white elephant that will put the "Big Dig" in Boston to shame. If AMTRAK can't make a dime, does anyone think a new rail system won't require massive subsidies for a far as the eye can see? It will be sold as a "jobs" program, but we all know better. We all know that when government "creates jobs", more jobs are lost in the country to pay for them than are created.

Again, these rail systems will be built by union labor, train engines built by GE- a major supporter of the President. You can also bet it will cost a lot more than $8 billion to even get several of these projects off the ground.

Newsday site has 35 payers

After 3 months only 35 people have subscribed to the online paid service of the Long Island Newsday daily newspaper.

I think this business plan could be flawed. Maybe that is just me?

The website redesign cost the owners $4 million after they paid $650 million for the newspaper. Which again causes me to think they may have a bad business plan, newspapers aren't exactly growth industries.

I think the idea of having government subsidize newspapers has already been dropped, but maybe the owners know something I don't?

RCTV shut down, Chavez demands "absolute loyalty"

On a day when Venezuela celebrates the end of a dictatorship from decades ago the present dictatorship made a statement by shutting down RCTV. RCTV is one of the oldest and most respected television networks in "Latin America", having been around more than 50 years.
In 2007 its broadcast license was pulled and RCTV reverted to cable where it had operated RCTV International.

Venezuelan bloggers are now saying they fear the last independent media voice Globovision might also be shut down, at least until after elections in September. The link there is to one of the best reports you will ever see on the subject.

Another Venezuela blogger reports here.

"I am the people"

"I demand absolute loyalty to my leadership... anything else is betrayal.

"I am not an individual, I am the people" Chavez told his supporters.

Opposition leader Julio Borges told the larger anti-Chavez marchers "2010 is the year of change for all Venezuela.... when hatred will be overcome by unity".

SCOTUS decides correctly, whats it about?

CATO has a video that explains the Citizens United vs FEC case to those who might not know anything but the crap that hear spewed from the leftists.

Its very well done.

Gates: We recognize Taliban

Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the US now recognizes the Taliban as a part of the fabric of Afghanistan. So the United States, now run by leftist idiots, want to make nice with murders and terrorists. Nice huh?
The Taliban are terrorists. The Taliban are murderers and oppressors of women and children.
Apparently they are Barack Obama's kind of people. I guess they just need a shout out from their homey.

Headlines and news of the day

Just looking through the headlines for this sunny morning here in Texas...

Air America Radio finally taken off the life support: Nobody hardest hit. Its not like they had any listeners, they never had much of an audience at all even in their "heyday".

Mayors tell Obama that stimulus isn't working for cities. Well they could have left those last two words off completely. Very unnecessary. The stimulus program was not suppose to help anyone but politicians and their friends and cronies. When stimulus spends $2 million to weatherize 7 houses in Texas, you gotta wonder where 90% of the money really went.

ABC's blog says that workers in Lorain Ohio want the President to focus more on "jobs", Obama visited the place nearly 2 years ago it says. Well lets see, there was the so-called stimulus and then there were the "jobs summits" and everything still got worse. Maybe the workers in Lorain Ohio need to consider how jobs are actually created in the real world?

Jobs are created with capital accumulation and investment, real investment not government debt spending, and those are the two things we are seeing being attacked and savaged by this government. Bloomberg now says 77% of investors see this administration as anti-business.

Do you think attacking and taxing banks and massive debt spending is going to make it easier to accumulate capital and gather investments? How much of bank assets are now in government bonds instead of making loans? What happens if the government freezes out so much investment that farmers can't even get a loan to buy seed?

Maybe someone should have listened to them during the campaign when they railed against "middle class-ism". They were attacking the 'American Dream', he and Michele both wanted to bring an end to the American dream and to do that they would need to do what? They would have to make this country poorer.

Massive debt spending coming

Democrats in Congress want to raise the debt limit, again, this time by nearly $2 trillion.

Meanwhile they are giving lip service to "pay as you go" and Obama has come out against deficit spending. The fact is they plan massive amounts of debt spending over the next year or two, and this is going to hurt the economy further.

China spent nearly $600 billion to build a whole new city near the Mongolian border, new Ordos. Now new Ordos is 30km from old Ordos, the government wants to move the old city to the new city. The problem is the rows and rows of houses are now owned by speculators and investors and nobody in old Ordos can afford to buy them.

Even if they could, there is no economy in new Ordos. The region is the home of a massive coal mine, they even refer to it as their Texas. Although, I don't think Texas produces much coal come to think of it.

Just because the government of China spent $600 billion to build a shiny new city and called it a "stimulus" doesn't mean its going to stimulate anything.

I have no idea what the Democrats plan to do with the higher debt limit, I just don't think its going to be very good for the economy.

Unexpected-O's for breakfast again

Jobless claims up again.

Media is shocked, again.

Somehow the media has spent the last eight months telling us how "unexpected" the bad economic news is. They need new experts if you ask me, the ones they use now are too stupid for words.

I suppose the media was banking on the unemployed giving up looking for work and letting their unemployment checks run out. That is the only way for the official unemployment rate to go down these days. Fact is real unemployment is more like 17% right now.

Pouring another big bowl of Unexpected-O's for breakfast!

Toward Amnesty?

Representative Barney Frank seemed to rule out political shenanigans to get "health care reform" passed before Sen. Scott Brown can be seated. This could be a death knell for the current efforts to pass a big government healthcare plan, if he sticks to the statement.

Then what is their to do?

It is very likely we will see an effort to legalize millions and millions of illegal aliens in time for them to vote Democrat, suck up our entitlement dollars and whatnot. They can get GOP votes for amnesty, John McCain for example.

Are you ready for another bloodbath?

Are you ready to march in the streets again?

Everyone seems to think the big momentum is with the Republicans but putting amnesty up for debate this year could halt that dead in its tracks. The people of this country and Republicans especially rejected the attempt to give amnesty to millions and millions of illegal aliens when George W Bush was President.

There are probably some Democrat strategists who remember that. Even if it does not have a chance to pass it could divide the GOP and blunt their gains this November.

MASS thanks!

Congrats to Massachussetts for filling your seat with Scott Brown instead of the evil Martha Coakley. This will be a benefit to the entire country.

Super FAIL for Coakley.

As if the Martha Coakley campaign couldn't get any more ridiculous, now they send out press releases accusing the Republicans of vote fraud. The release is dated the day BEFORE the election. This is hilarious. They can't even cheat straight and thats something they have a lot of experience with.

This whole campaign has been one FAIL after another.

Scott Brown, harlot?

The truth is that I know almost nothing about Scott Brown, I do know Martha Coakley belongs more in prison than in the Senate. Anyone running against her should get support, she really is that bad. This is not about Scott Brown, this is about defeating someone who is almost the epitome of evil.

Check out the Amirault case for instance, find out about the "curling iron up her butt" episode where she protected, thats right, protected real child molesters. Martha Coakley is an evil person.

Stopping the radical left from reshaping this country is a second reason to vote for Scott Brown, if we can stop Death Panels and healthcare deform then its a plus. If we can stop Card Check, amnesty and other radical leftwing proposals then we will all be the better for it.

Anyone who knows me knows that I lose all respect for anyone who strips off their clothes for the camera, that includes Scott Brown. He could very well be a moral degenerate for all I know, but then he would fit right in there with Chris Dodd and Barney Frank won't he?

I guess tomorrow night we will find out how this whole things ends, hopefully it will end. I suspect a lot of Democrat cheating, but if its not close enough, they can't steal it.

Double speak

Last week Martha Coakley attended a big funraiser in Washington DC, while Scott Brown was shaking hands in the cold at Fenway possibly, raking in contributions from Big Insurance and Big Pharma. You'll remember that one of her thugs pushed a Weekly Standard reporter down.

On Sunday Barack Obama, at a rally for Martha Coakley, blamed the economy on Bush and his friends in Big Insurance and Big Pharma.

Say what?

No Barack H Obama, those are YOUR friends.

Coakley overdose

Martha Coakley

Sending innocent men to jail
Protecting child molesters
All the personality & charisma of a dead lizard
Elitist entitlement mentality
Snobby as all get out
What me shake hands with you people?
Bush's fault, nuff said
"Not Michael Dukakis in a dress" says Barney Frank
"Marcia" Patrick Kennedy calls her. lol.
Schilling is a Yankee's fan?
What can Coakley do for you?
Keep Catholics out of the ER!

This has got to be the one of the worst candidates and campaigns in the history of this country.

"Climate Deniers" are proven right, again

The IPCC, the UN agency charged with studying "climate change", is set to repeal their proclaimation that the Himalayan glaciers would melt before 2035.

I guess the "deniers" were right after all.

Apparently the agency did NO science whatsoever to come to this conclusion. The only thing they could do was point to an interview in a magazine where a scientist speculated that some portions of the glacier could melt at some undetermined time in the future.

In other words the IPCC report was pure manure from day one.

There is still zero evidence of man-made global warming.

MSNBC: Cheat, buy votes

Viewers of MSNBC never get what normal people would call "news" instead they are treated with heavy doses of left-wing wacko rhetoric. Chrissy Mathews who gets tingles down his leg when he sees President Obama indicated Democrats should go and buy votes in Massachussetts.

Meanwhile Ed Shultz admitted that he would cheat to win the Senate election.

Which is the usual tactic on the left isn't it? ACORN, SEIU and Al Franken have shown themselves to be masters of it. Think Minnesota.

Meanwhile Danny Glover, chum of Hugo Chavez, thinks the Haiti earthquake was caused by the failure of the Copenhagen conference.

I am sure the MSM will be all over these controversial statements.

Atrocity of Hope

Last year the American people were robbed to "bail out the banks" and this year El Jeffe Obama has decided to tax the banks (people who use them) to "pay it back". So we, the people, get robbed twice under this scheme.

Who benefits?

Well obviously Obama is benefitting by trying to be the man who "saved" the banks and now the man who is "getting our money back" from the robber barons. It is all a put-up job, of course, do Americans really believe this crap?

The UAW benefitted, they basically own GM and Chrysler after the government shafted the shareholders. They also get exempted from paying it back and now they get exempted from the new healthcare tax until 2018.

Blatant political favoritism is an ugly thing.

Using the power of government to benefit friends and allies so openly while proclaiming to be doing a favor to those of us who end up paying for it, is audacious all right, its also atrocious. This is thug behavior, something we would expect from Hugo Chavez, the midget in North Korea or Castro in Cuba. This is not what we expect from our own government.

I guess that is the change they promised us.

Emperor Wagyu releases "timeline" on Haiti response

Rush Limbaugh was correct when he said Emperor zero, Lord eVader himself, would never waste the crisis of Haiti when it can be politicized. A detailed timeline has been released from the WH of Obama's "response". Like I'd believe anything they release anyway.

Here is my version:

Ring... Martha Calling!!...

Here is a sample script:

Coming Crisis?

Last year Obama said the country would collapse if we didn't save the banking industry, now Obama wants to punish the "fat cat bankers". This is a public threat, the banks will fall in line and do the governments bidding.

Printing and printing...

Federal Reserve prints and loans money to banks at .25% and they buy government bonds at 3%.

Today they are making few loans. They are simply buying government debt, allowing the government to spend more money it doesn't have. It is quite a vicious circle and the consequences are just becoming clearer all the time.

What happens if farmers can't get loans for seed and equipment? We could very well see a food crisis in this country. I dread to see what this administration would do about that.

Third World Politinomics

So last year it was politically expediant to "bailout" the banks, whether they wanted to be bailed out or not. We needed to "save" the banks, it was a crisis. Make the people think we are saving the economy and that Obama is our hero.

Since then US strongman El Jeffe Obama has figured it might be more expediant to blame the banks for the economy, blame the "fat cat bankers" who helped fund his campaign. Today the Obama regime is announcing new taxes on the demon banks, how dare they make a profit.

Of course, GM doesn't have to pay back TARP. The UAW will soon be exempt from taxes on "cadillac" healthcare plans as well. Government partisan favoritism is not pretty. It is all about politics, always it is about politics. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae won't have to pay anything back either, they are basically nationalized as part of the Democrat Party Machine as well.

Soon the only finction of banks will be to recieve loans from the government at .25% interest and then loan it back to government at 3% interest. Monopoly money. Devaluation in slow motion, not overnight like in Venezuela.

There is no recovery, its all smoke and mirrors. This new tax on loans will make it even worse.

The worse the economy gets, the more power over your life and the nations finances the statists in power will take over. That is the whole point.

Venezuela devaluation, followed by electricity rationing-in an energy rich country, followed by troops being sent to quell rising prices. Who knew that 10 or 11 years of socialist mismanagent could produce such shoddy results?

Ok, a better question is who didn't know?

So what happens when you slash the value of the currency in half? Obviously prices must rise to compensate, any idiot can figure that out. Except maybe Hugo Chavez who sends military troops to sieze stores that do what has to be done by any logic.

Let us follow this to its extreme but logical conclusion. How long will it be before the only stores left are those owned by government and its minions? Where people stand in lines and hope there is 2-day old bread when they get there. Where the items on the shelf could change without notice, where new shipments of goods are unpredictable.

We know what happens. El Dictator gets on TV and shouts that the Capitalist American pigs have stolen their food, their electricity, their water, their freedoms.... blah blah blah

Of course it was their own government and the morons in charge of it that caused it all.

Stability Police Force/Internal Population Control?

With the President giving free reign to INTERPOL in the United States this country has taken a step toward 3rd world dictatorial status. INTERPOL is not some benign entity that simply helps track down wanted criminals, they are a tool of tyrants around the world. They are mulling a request from Iran to issue "red notices" on 25 Israeli's who help defend Israel from terrorist attacks from Gaza.

Just imagine that INTERPOL could now arrest those Israeli's inside the United States at the behest of Iran for defending their own country from terrorism. Local police departments will have no power to challenge INTERPOL, they'll just watch I suppose. Suppose they start dragging Americans away to face political show trials at the Hague?

Now imagine what the use of a National Council of Governors would be. The only thing I can think of is to help the White House form and operate its Internal Security Force, what would be known commonly as a Secret Police. The RAND CORP has already released a "study" on how the government should set up such a thing.

One of the things they would do is to "Shape the environment before a conflict". What does that mean you might wonder?

Let us suppose that the tyrant, I mean President, believes some opposition rally in Sometown USA might descend into violence or even rebellion, or just wants to cause one for his own reasons. The Stability Police Force could go in and arrest and detain the leaders of this area's opposition, shut down cell phone, internet and radio and have troops in place to deal with the opposition should a rally occur.

The SPF would help cause a disturbance that could then be politically useful to the powers-that-be. I have no doubt that the RAND CORP suggestion is already being implemented as we chat about it.

That is why this blog exists, to chronicle the decline of the United States into 3rd world tyranny.

Various Thoughts and Brain Farts

Bank it!

So Lord eVader, Obama, is considering a levy on banks to help subsidize badly run banks that are in danger of failing. Of course this means we will have to pay to prop up businesses that should be allowed to fail. The banking industry is improved when the bad banks go away and better banks pick up the slack, some sort of bank welfare is a bad thing.


What kind of third world country would you expect to see people terrified to testify in a civil trial for fear that they and their families will be targeted? What kind of people would make death threats and make public the addresses of their "enemies" in an obvious move intending to cause terror?

That third world country is called California and the issue is the prop. 8 trial in which a court will likely, once again, overturn the will of the people. This is what usually happens in California when the will of the people conflict with those of the powers-that-be.

Then again it has also become a common practice in some states for newspapers to print the names and other information of everyone with a license to own/carry a gun. The DoJ doesn't even think of investigating the New Black Panthers guarding polling places while holding billy clubs.

Yes, this country is on a downward spiral into third world territory.

Land of Eng, a farcical territory

The headlines this week out of the UK has been extraordinary. Just a sampling of them should tell us how far down the crapper that country has gone.

Girls as young as 9 found to be forced into arranged marriages (guess the religion)

Boys as young as 10 brainwashed into wanting to be suicide bombers (guess the religion)

A woman who scared off 3 intruders by waving a knife from the kitchen window has been warned that she could be charged with a crime.

The case of the two Hussain brothers defending their family with a baseball bat sees them sentenced to 30 and 39 months in prison. These were knife-weilding intruders who had tied up the family and threatened to kill them. The real criminals got about 24 months. No doubt the violent home invaders were the key witnesses against the Hussain brothers.

Once upon a time Britain was Great.

Blago is "blacker" than Obama?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is not the only one making headlines for racially insensitive remarks about the president.Deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich is generating heat for comments in a new interview, in which he claims he is "blacker" than President Barack Obama.

In the interview with Esquire Magazine, Blagojevich says: "I'm blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little Laundromat in a black community not far from where he lived. I saw it all growing up." ...

Poor = Black?

Now that is a prime example of racism.

The Democrats lately have been cleaning out their closets and finding their Klan hoods. Someone should hurry up and ask Senator Robert "sheets" Byrd about all of this.

Harry and his light-skinned apology

Nice to see Harry Reid is finally being taken to task for saying, more than a year ago, that Barack Obama was a "clean and articulate" black man. Oh, my bad, that was then-Senator Joseph Biden. What Harry Reid actually said was Obama was "light skinned" and didn't have that "negro dialect".

He has now apologized, over a year later, how timely.

Some people have expressed shock and awe that the word "Negro" is also included on census forms. Interestingly the government uses the word that people have to apologize for using in private conversations. I am sure the NAACP will be holding marches and protest rallies calling for the Senator to step down in shame. Or not.

Apparently Democrats cannot be racist, ask Senator Byrd.

I am sure the apology was heart-felt and all of his racist thoughts were abrogated by the Lord eVader himself. Okay, not really.

Face it, Harry Reid, Joseph Biden and Sheets Byrd are all racists, so are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They get a pass because they are leftwing Democrats and the media says so. Liberalism comes before anything else, ask those thre-quarters of American jews who would vote to re-elect Obama even if he personally nukes Jerusalem. *opinion alert*.
