Obamacare means never having to say “What can I do for you?”, it really means saying “What can I do for y’all?”

Imagine being grouped by symptoms – multiple patients, one doctor, all at once.

Could you end up with the Urination Discomfort Group – a Blonde Bimbo, a Soccer Mom, a Construction Worker, a Pregnant Cow, and a sweaty 475lb Wal-Mart transvestite greeter named Hubert all in the same room?

Imagine publicly working through the diagnoses:

  1. Take more breaks at work, you need to urinate more frequently
  2. Stop having an affair with different men every day and fill this prescription for an antibiotic
  3. Go to an Urgent Care to get the rivet taken out of your groin because the ER can’t take you with so many not-Amnesty folks
  4. The vet’s office is two floors up, and you know that, Bossie
  5. Hubert, the damp environment from your leather underwear has led to a UTI.  Again.

The LAST thing I want is to be grouped in with a Blonde.

Just wait until a burst appendix is elective outpatient surgery.  Then you’ll be sorry.

Apologies to the three-thousand seven-hundred and nineteen sweaty 475lb transvestite Wal-Mart greeters named Hubert that I have just mortally offended or embarrassed.

Erik Ericson says on FoxNews in an op-ed piece about the autopsy of the RNC 2012 Election

What the autopsy misses out of the gate is that some times there is nothing that can be done. Bad election years are bad election years. Candidates like Josh Mandel were model candidates for the GOP who ran great races, but still lost. Some times it just happens.

“… some times there is nothing that can be done.  Bad election years are bad election years.”

The RNC at this point needs a DNR.  This is one patient that no one should expend heroic measures on.

We had McCain and then Romney.  McCain was at the time the lesser of evils but he has since fallen so far out of my favor that he’s never coming back.  Romney suffered from a serious case of Not-Great-ness.  Romney was like Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream.  Not bad but needed something to vault him into the realm of Greatness.  Unfortunately what we got was Vanilla Ice Cream and Beluga Caviar.  Beluga would have been better, Vanilla would have been ok, but Apple Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream just never left the pits.

The food metaphor went stale, then rancid, and rotted with that nasty slimy-pie and way-bad smell of spoiled milk products.  So sorry.

The talk is that the RNC needs to re-brand itself, stop being “Too white, too right, and too uptight”, and be more caring.  If I hear “re-branding” as a serious suggestion one more time someone is going to get a Super-Wedgie™.

Re-branding is bullshit.  Too white is ridiculous – it’s not about color.  We’ve got color in the White House and obviously that’s not the magic answer.  Uptight?  Ol’ Reservoir Tip has that covered, too.  Too right?   Nah.  Focus on that and you’re so far away from the correct answer that you’re not even wrong.

I know…

How about “Be a man”?  How about “Be a man of character”?  How about “Be the same man, no matter what the situation”?

Or woman.  Let’s not turn this into a gender thing.  Let’s keep this as an issue of being real vs. a creepy political silly-putty golem.

I think the Pope is the model of what is needed.

We need someone who is what they really are.  We need someone who isn’t apologizing for what they believe in because they don’t need to.  We need someone who wants something better, but that something better does not necessarily mean having that job as top dog.

You can analyze past presidents all you want.  You can look at the great failures and great successes and you can dice them up and analyze them to your heart’s content and miss what it’s really going to take.

Someone who cares, someone who has the capacity to lead, and their heart has to be bigger than their ego.  Haven’t seen that since 1981.

Speaking of ego and fitness for leadership, Nevada’s Harry “Whorehouse” Reid can’t even wait for forensics to figure out what happened before blaming the Hawthorne Army Depot deaths on the sequester.  This isn’t news as much as my observation about a lack of respect.

Geez, Reid… I know you are a scumbag little weasel but have some courtesy – wait a little bit before using a tragedy for your own gain.

Of course the Democrats are well known for never letting something serious go to waste.****

CNN’s Foreign Int’l Correspondent Ben Wedeman:

“He hasn’t actually done much in the way of real policy changes of initiatives, and he certainly is the hope and change pope, but he’s at the head of a body, the Vatican, that’s very resistant to change”

The Hope and Change Pope?  I didn’t think you could get any more insulting than Harry Reid, but I guess I was wrong.

80% in a poll says they are either no better off than four years ago or about the same.  There’s a shining endorsement.

But some say “nah nah nah nah nah nah nah” with their fingers in their ears.  People like Harry Reid, W(hinger)-NV.  He’s just given birth to a whole new party of clueless people in painful denial.  He’s like an Occupier with a suit.  I hope that the internet sags under the number of times he’s quoted a poll.

“I’m not much of a pollster guy. As everyone knows, there isn’t a poll in America that had me having any chance of being re-elected, but I got re-elected,” he told TheDC.

“I think this poll is so meaningless. It is trying to give the American people an idea of what 300 million people feel by testing several hundred people. I think the poll is flawed in so many different ways including a way that questions were asked. I don’t believe in polls generally and specifically not in this one.”     http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/13/reid-poll-finding-80-percent-of-americans-not-better-off-so-meaningless

Oh really?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday pointed to the results of a new poll in arguing that House Republican leaders “can’t let the tea party call the shots” in ongoing negotiations over funding the federal government.  – http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/2chambers/post/reid-the-country-doesnt-care-much-about-the-tea-party/2011/03/30/AFkYeZ2B_blog.html

I WONder where the dissatisfaction is coming from?

Yes, the news is in – Tide, as in the soap, is a hot item across the country.

“We sent in an informant to buy drugs. The dealer said, ‘I don’t have drugs, but I could sell you 15 bottles of Tide,’ ” Sprague told The Daily. “Upstairs in the drug dealer’s bedroom was about 14 bottles of Tide laundry soap. We think [users] are trading it for drugs.”

Police in Gresham, Ore., said most Tide theft is perpetrated by “users feeding their habit.”

“They’ll do it right in front of a cop car — buying heroin or methamphetamine with Tide,” said Detective Rick Blake of the Gresham Police Department. “We would see people walking down the road with six, seven bottles of Tide. They were so blatant about it.”

Lots of euphemisms now sound even weirder.  “Bath salts”, “Crystal”, “getting clean”, etc.

Surf’s up, dudes.

I’m going to sit and wait for someone to notice something about these last few paragraphs.  If no one says anything I will conclude that Cruel Wife is right and I am indeed “A Sheldon”.  That’s painfully blunt talk, there, and we use it to mean “Yeah, technically smart but functionally as dumb as a bag of hammers”.  I am pretty sure she wasn’t implying “genius” in any way, shape, or form.

“Cruel Wife” fits.

Mitchell has found a link that is a lifesaver.

I don’t know if you guys are Star Wars fans, but I thought Episode I (with Jar-Jar Binks) was some kind of obscene and cruel joke with no punchline.

Where Mitchell’s link leads, the guy makes a great argument for mixing up the order entirely and never watching Ep. I again.  And he makes sense!

If I can save just one child from that perversion named Jar-Jar, a lifetime of letter-writing to pass this information on will be worth it.

Congress.  Vote the entire lot out.  Tar and feather them.  Start with Boehner.

House Speaker John Boehner says the pact he’s reached with President Barack Obama and other leaders of Congress on lifting the debt limit and taming the budget “isn’t the greatest deal” but lives up to the GOP’s principles on taxes and spending.

They’re cutting 1 trillion dollars over ten years.  That’s 100 billion per year in a yearly budget of over 3 trillion dollars.

The ****wad has just made the biggest argument for why so many Tea Party folks should show up in record numbers to make sure that anyone who now aligns themselves with the GOP is gone and why people of any party should be voted out after one term.   I’m a conservative and hearing Boehner say that only cutting one trillion over ten years is living up to the GOP’s principles tells me that the GOP is dead and he’s given it just one more in a long string of kisses of death.

I’m supposed to feel better than this about it, though:

Congressional sources familiar with the outlines of the deal say it would cut the deficit by about $2.8 trillion and raise the debt limit by a similar amount. The deal includes $1.2 trillion in spending cuts up front and creates a select bicameral committee to find another $1.6 trillion in savings later in the 112th Congress.

I’m sure there’s a committee that is going to be as dedicated to finding the $1.6T as Obama was in listening to the committee recommendations about the budget last winter.  Yep, expect some quick action on that one.

I want to hear a certain list of numbers and if I don’t hear them I want to know why.  Yearly.

  1. How much do we spend on things we need this year?
  2. How much do we take in?
  3. How much has the debt been paid down this year?
  4. When will the debt be paid off?

#2 minus #3 minus #1 goddamned well better be greater than zero and never a negative number.  If it is more than zero, I want my taxes reduced by that much divided by 350M next year.  When you set out #1, I want to know exactly where it is going, and I don’t want budget tricks played – no estimates or assumptions.  If you can’t do that, the budget needs to be simplified to the point where that doesn’t happen.

And I want the extra alphabet departments removed.  And a 10% flat tax.  And no more pork damnit.  And for f***’s sake get rid of the congressional pensions and benefits.  @$$holes.  Stop it with the games, you chickensh*t bastards, and for once play straight and grow up – the rest of us are seriously tired of your sh*t.

Expect Boehner to break out in tears any day now, talking about his love of his country and how stressful this has been.

Thanks to Mitchell for the tip-off.

Whatever stash Reid got into out there in Nevada, it’s something else.  Reid sounds like the political equivalent of Charlie Sheen in terms of weirdness, but without the porn queens, twitter madness, and machetes.  And Reid isn’t a rock-star from Mars with tiger blood in his veins.  But other than that, they’re friggin’ twins, brah.

“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1 … eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts,” said Reid. “These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

So let me get this straight… is he saying that this is a great venue for cowboys (and presumably cowgirls) to make more little cowboys and cowgirls to the tune of tens of thousands and if they scrap the NEA stuff there won’t be any more little cowboys and cowgirls because the big cowboys and cowgirls otherwise never meet and have rodeo sex?

if the scenario involves anything like the above pics and their unholy union, scrap it now, Now, NOW.

Obama would love to track you using your cell phone.

…the Obama administration has argued that warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in their–or at least their cell phones’–whereabouts

Notice how the default is “you don’t get privacy unless it is granted to you specifically by the court”?

Used to be your gov’t had to explicitly request the right to impinge on your freedoms and privacies.  Now it is assumed that you have to show why you should have those rights.

This REALLY STEAMS MY CLAMS…

The Obama administration is not alone in making this argument. U.S. District Judge William Pauley, a Clinton appointee in New York, wrote in a 2009 opinion that a defendant in a drug trafficking case, Jose Navas, “did not have a legitimate expectation of privacy in the cell phone” location. That’s because Navas only used the cell phone “on public thoroughfares en route from California to New York” and “if Navas intended to keep the cell phone’s location private, he simply could have turned it off.

So in order to have your right to privacy respected, you have to disable your cell phone when you pay to be able to use it at will.

Art-free weekend.  Bad pain days today and yesterday.  Plus the water pump to my well died tonight.  Yah-frickin’-hoo.  So I need to break from it.

Update: Not so art-free… see below.

This is pretty funny.  Ha.  Ha.  Ha.  A supposed champion of the party that is the champion (again, supposedly) of black folks everywhere, well… let’s just say he’s kind of an assh*le.  But we knew that already, didn’t we?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

Reid and his Clearly-I'm-Racist-But-I'm-Not-Racist talk caused this to come to me in a dream.

At least unlike 99% of the politicians out there, he knows how to make an apology that actually says “I apologize”.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans for my improper comments,” Reid said

Republican National Committee Chairman Steele didn’t much agree with Obama about it being a closed book.

Steele also accused Democrats of hypocrisy on the matter.

“There is this standard where Democrats feel that they can say these things and they can apologize when it comes from the mouths of their own. But if it comes from anyone else, it is racism,”

I watched Glenn Beck today.  Yes, the man has his faults but I still like him.  Today he had an audience and guests all across the spectrum of opinions and ideologies – black businessmen/women, polticians, ministers… even Mychal Massie (who totally rocks).

And they were having an honest discussion about race.  It was refreshing.  I find it funny to run across that kind of discussion not days after I lamented not seeing this sort of thing.

Some points made by the guests:

  1. Entitlement programs to poor minorities are racist.   Think about it.  If I convince a group of people that they need me, and I convince them that I am  providing for their need, then I have a great many hard-wired votes.
  2. Conservatives, not liberals, have been the champions of abolishing slavery and of forwarding civil rights.  It’s true. It’s in the history books.  Go read about it.
  3. Minority kids are singled out by their own peers when expressing an interest in learning and being successful.
  4. Democrats have been going on about how important minority education is yet they argue against vouchers for those same children to get out of the crap school systems they are stuck in.

Mychal Massie said that when he entered the studio building he didn’t come in as an African American, a black man, or anything other than himself, Mychal Massie.

A mayor stood up and said that he didn’t want to be known as a black mayor, he wanted to be known as a qualified person who was the mayor.

I bring it all up because they’ve been sore points with me for a while.  Kind of tired of the automatic assumption that the Democrats/liberals are the best thing ever for minorities and that the Republicans/conservatives automatically are oppressors.

Frankly, I find the Democrats’ willingness to tax me silly for the benefit of selected others is really not much more than veiled slavery.  Unless your tax money goes to everyone equally, or unless a law applies to everyone, or unless rights apply to everyone equally… then it is wrong, no matter what good intentions were at the heart of it.

… and eventually they will hang us all.

Updated Image to reflect Obama’s Executive Order to elevate foreign entities so that they needn’t be bothered by that pesky 6th Amendment.  Steal the image.  Give it away, use it to your heart’s content.  Please.

Here was last night’s version.  I like the above one better.

But, just like the airline terrorist plot system worked, so too shall our health care system.  Because, as we all know, just because a passenger was burned while being a first responder to the threat, this doesn’t mean things won’t go swimmingly well.  Just like a bunch of molested single-tree homogenized data means nothing to the Global Warming argument.  Just as all the things in 2009 (the bad things, anyway) were all Bush’s fault alone.

Update: They will indeed hang us all.  Soylent Green, ThreatsWatch, and finally  Michelle Malkin (bless them all) have reported on Obama’s plot to ensure that you, too, are now susceptible to a foreign agency operating within your own country’s borders, and they operate without verifiable oversight by your government.

On ThreatsWatch:

President Obama has not rejected the concept of ICC jurisdiction over US citizens and service members. He has avoided any direct reference to this while offering praise for the ICC for conducting its trials so far “in America’s interests.” The door thus remains wide open to the skeptical observer.

Many thanks to cbullitt over at Soylent for passing this on.

Napolitano and Obama aren’t very reassuring when it comes to reassuring me that they are on top of things in the air travel department.

I had a thought though.  Let’s get rid of profiling after all!  Instead, we do no profiling or background checks whatsoever, and if you are from the middle east or are a middle east whack-job, you just fly on the planes designated for middle easterners.  No security checks there, either!  I’m thinking that it just might give those of the peaceful religions some incentive to stop bitching about profiling for a change and step up and police themselves.

If the plane flies more than two miles off of the scheduled flight plan you just blow the damn thing out of the sky.  Sounds pretty workable, everyone gets to fly, and there is no profiling.

I’m slowly climbing out of my bad mood.  Give me two more days and it’ll pass.

Pelosi and Reid are beneath contempt.

By JOHN FUND

Look for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to try to circumvent the traditional conference committee process by which the different versions of health care reform passed by each house will be reconciled. If so, it will be the latest example of violating principles of transparency and accountability in the single-minded pursuit of legislative victory.

They behave like syphilitic monkeys, convinced that their actions are rational when they clearly are the result of a profoundly damaged mind or at the very least a profoundly damaged world view.

Geez, this out of a friggin’ mafia movie…  it’s like:

Even more disturbing… “You do it like I asked you to or my daddy will talk to your daddy and then you’ll be sorry.”

Administration Warns of ‘Command-and-Control’ Regulation Over Emissions

The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn’t move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a “command-and-control” role over the process in way[s] that could hurt business.

I’m bothered by the prospect of Congress getting involved in a ways that doesn’t hurt businesses.  That kind of action is rife with favors and corruption as a million little exceptions, loopholes, and incentives are dreamed up by the congress-critters.
Such as Hillary giving her favorite pollster $6M of your tax dollars to keep three employees.  Is it just me or is that suspiciously close to the amount of money she owed from her failed presidential bid?

Yesterday Harry Reid pretty much accused Republicans of being opponents of the civil rights and slavery abolition movements – which is fine except Republicans were the ones on the good-guy side. I include two excerpts from the Wall Street Journal for background.

In a remarkable statement on the Senate floor, Mr. Reid lambasted Republicans for wanting to “slow down” on health care. “You think you’ve heard these same excuses before? You’re right,” he said. “In this country there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early. Let’s wait. Things aren’t bad enough’ — about slavery. When women wanted to vote, [they said] ‘Slow down, there will be a better day to do that — the day isn’t quite right. – WSJ

It was Southern Dems that were the bad guys.

Historians also faulted Mr. Reid’s curious reference to the Senate civil rights debates of the 1960s. After all, it was Southern Democrats who mounted an 83-day filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Bill. The final vote to cut off debate saw 29 Senators in opposition, 80% of them Democrats. – WSJ

Or as Michelle Malkin points out:

It was the GOP that fought slavery and the Democrat Party that battled to preserve it.

It’s the Democrat Party, not the GOP, that boasts an ex-Klansman among its senior leaders.

But don’t confuse Harry Reid with history while he invokes slavery to lambaste the GOP for opposing the government-run health care takeover.

Amazingly, today Reid defended his remarks:

“At pivotal points in American history, the tactics of distortion and delay have certainly been present,” Reid said. “They’ve certainly been used to stop progress. That’s what we’re talking about here. That’s what’s happening here. It’s very clear. That’s the point I made — no more, no less. Anyone who willingly distorts my comments is only proving my point.”

Now why is it whenever someone disagrees with a liberal-minded person they always jump up and down and scream that the dissenting view is wrong merely for dissenting?

Are Democrats so thin-skinned and are their stances on issue so very flimsy that their debate tactics are the adult equivalent of “I know you are but what am I?”?

How can they continue to have views that clearly aren’t shared by a lot of voters?  It’s a form of psychosis, is what it is.

It’s plain sad, is what it is.
