Sept 27, 2013: The 2013 Warrior Open opened with the Pledge of Allegiance and a performance of “America the Beautiful.”

Dubya talked briefly about the tournament. [:44]

Lefties aren’t much different in Iran. Hard-liners threw eggs at moderate President Rouhani as he arrived home from the United Nations. Our leftie wingnuts threw eggs at Bush’s car during the Inauguration Parade. (I always thought the fact the Obamas could walk rather than ride inside a closed car like the Bushes had to do was Proof Positive that right wingnuts are far better behaved then left wingnuts.)

Lying Senator Crapweasels Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell voted WITH the Democrats in favor of cloture, which allowed Harry Reid to strip out all the language in the bill to defund Obamacare. Then they bragged that they had “proudly voted to Defund Obamacare.”

Citizens schooled them both:

  • Wow, you must really not think much of your voters.
  • You knew good and well that the bill would be stripped before it was sent back to the house.
  • No one trusts a liar.
  • I will be supporting your opponent in the primary.
  • Do you really think we’re that stupid?
  • You lying piece of trash! You’ve been on the edge for a long time and you finally put yourself over the cliff.
  • You need to start counting the days till the next election because I intend to support ANYONE that primaries you.
  • Unbelievable. Do you really think you can get away with that, Senator?
  • How do you sleep at night, sir?
  • Stand, grow a pair and get your head out of Obamas rear-end!!!

Army combat veteran and cop tells it straight

An impassioned and rational statement against New York’s so-called “Safe Act” by Aaron Weiss of Poughkeepsie [2:58]

I especially like his statement at the end about what the legislators who support this vile law would be willing to do to enforce it. My guess is … nothing. The Left sends better men and women into harm’s way while they sit back in their padded chairs and sip their expensive whiskey.

Pope Francis: Digital domain needs loving dialogue

2013_09 23 Pope Francis tweet w illus

Sept 21, 2013: Pope Francis told Catholic communicators, “I believe that the goal is to understand how to enter into dialogue with the men and women of today in order to appreciate their desires, their doubts and their hopes.”

In a world of rapidly changing methods of communication, “the issues are not principally technological.” Meeting Christ requires a personal encounter that cannot be forced or engineered.

People are searching for the “precious treasure” of the Gospel, which brings light and hope to a world that often lacks meaning, direction and purpose, he said.

Communicators need to portray “the face of a church, which is ‘home’ to all,” and convey the beauty of faith and joy of meeting Christ.

You want us to TRUST these people?

On my Facebook today:

My dad just posted this: Nancy went to our insurance agent yesterday to see how Obamacare would affect us on Medicare and our Humana supplemental policy. Answer? “We don’t know because they (Feds) won’t tell us until it starts b/c they don’t want us to know…it’s a big secret, I guess!” Really? We are going to trust our healthcare and the healthcare of our children to this entity? How does that even make sense?

Right Wing Obamacare Myths DEBUNKED – Satire by The Matt Walsh Blog – September 25, 2013

http://themattwalshblog.com/2013/09/25/right-wing-obamacare-myths-debunked/

Man, I hate these stupid, crazy, tea bagging right wingers. So foolish, so uncivilized. They run around screaming like crazed anarchists about how they want to stop Obamacare. Damned idiots don’t realize that the government needs to be involved in our health care decisions; we’re too helpless and feeble to handle it ourselves — unless we’re making the “medical” choice to get an abortion, in which case, THIS IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, YOU GOVERNMENT PIGS. GET OUT! I mean, leave your wallet on the table, ’cause I’m gonna need you to pay for this, but then GET OUT, JERK.

Foden20130927-Xchangesr20130926020241

There are many scare tactics being used by the tea baggers in an effort to discredit Obamacare. Personally, I hate scare tactics. You should never let anyone scare you away from supporting socialized medicine, mostly because without it every poor person in the country will get sick and die. Anyway, like I said, I disapprove of scare tactics.

They claim that Obamacare will raise taxes, but this has been PROVEN false so many times. You know it’s been proven because I capitalized “proven.” Sure, there might be a few minor billion dollar taxes, like the individual mandate tax and the employer mandate tax, the Excise Tax on Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans, the Tax on Health Insurers, the Tax on Innovator Drug Companies, the High Medical Bills Tax, the Medicine Cabinet Tax, the Tax on Indoor Tanning Services, and the Excise Tax on Charitable Hospitals. And, yeah, there might be a small number of multi-billion dollar tax hikes on things like the Medicare Payroll tax and the “black liquor” tax and the HSA Withdrawal tax. And, OK fine, we’ll even see some tax deduction eliminations, like the deduction for employer-provided retirement prescription drug coverage.

But besides, like, 20 new taxes and tax hikes totaling, like, hundreds of billions of dollars, there aren’t ANY tax increases attached to Obamacare. None. NONE. See? I did the capital letter thing again. Pretty convincing stuff.

Obamacare - Estimated job loss

The redneck Tea Party crazies have even gone so far as to completely LIE about the impact Obamacare will have on the workforce. They insist that businesses are actually being forced to cut hours and lay off employees just to comply with the “burdensome” Obamacare rules and regulations. Again, this is a fabrication. Businesses aren’t cutting hours. Besides Walmart, Regal Entertainment, Trader Joe’s, Subway, Firehouse Subs, Sea World, Lands End, Dave and Busters, White Castle, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Home Depot, and academic institutions like Philadelphia University, Sam Houston State University, Ball State University, Georgia Military College, Three Rivers College, Hillsborough Community College, and University of North Alabama, and county governments in Indiana, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Michigan, Maryland, and Virginia, as well as school districts like Middletown Township Public Schools in New Jersey, Millard School District in Utah, and Shelbyville Central School System in Indiana, along with over 280 other businesses, universities, school systems and town governments, literally NOBODY is losing work because of Obamacare.

The radical, anti-governmentFascistAnarchistNaziBible-thumpingPuritanOtherRandomConflictingDescriptors right wing conservatives like to drone on and on about “small businesses”. Well, news flash: Small businesses CAN’T WAIT for Obamacare to take hold. Half of them aren’t even planning on significantly cutting their workforce to comply with it, while the other half are super excited to cut their employees’ hours, because, like Nancy Pelosi said, it’ll free up time for all of these people to take up new hobbies and “follow their passions.” Sure, because of Obamacare they won’t have enough money to feed their families, but at least they’ll have plenty of time to work on arts and crafts projects.

Obamacare love hate

Obamacare is just so wonderful. It could have only come from the mind of a brilliant man like President Obama. Think about it: We had a problem in this nation because so many people couldn’t afford health insurance. So what’s Obama’s plan? Simply charge those folks money for not having enough money! Brilliant! Oh, but his master strategy doesn’t stop there. It used to be expensive to buy insurance on the individual-market — now it will be TWICE as expensive for men, and only almost twice as expensive for women!

Do you see how this works?

  • Problem: Insurance is expensive.
  • Solution: Make it more expensive, and then tax people for not buying it.

There are a few other objections to Obamacare that I often hear raised by moronic neanderthals, such as the 200 economists who lobbied Congress to repeal the law. Let these so-called “economists” pretend they know something about the economy. I’ll take Harry Reid’s word over theirs any day of the week. Some say that this massive tax and spending program can’t possibly be sustained by a nation that’s already over 16 trillion dollars in debt. That’s where they’re wrong.

Little known fact: The economy works sort of like the card game Hearts. In Hearts, you’re supposed to avoid getting points. But if things go really poorly and you somehow collect ALL 26 points in a hand, you get zero and everyone else gets 26 — it’s called “Shooting the Moon.” It works the same way with the national debt. If a country can rack up 26 trillion dollars in debt, they go back down to zero and everyone else owes THEM 26 trillion. FACT. Look it up. It’s in, like, the UN Handbook or something. The good news is that Obamacare will get us to 26 trillion much quicker than you might think. Thank God!

Finally, you often hear the myth that the US Constitution doesn’t grant the government the authority to force citizens to buy a product. They even say the government doesn’t have the legal power to seize total control of an entire sector of the free market economy. Luckily, I don’t have to engage this argument because the Supreme Court already ruled. If the Supreme Court says it’s in there — it’s in there. Period. If the Supreme Court says dragons exist and Big Foot is real, then dragons exist and Big Foot is real. End of discussion. The Supreme Court is never wrong, just ask Dredd Scott.

Obamacare Exemptions

Despite all of the FACTS I just laid out, these maniacs still find a reason to oppose Obamacare. They’d even risk a short-term, temporary shutdown of government just to make their point. SHUTDOWN THE GOVERNMENT?! BUT HOW WOULD WE EAT OR BREATHE?! This is a warning to Ted Cruz and all his ilk: If the government stops operating for even one day — chaos and cannibalism will reign in the streets. Mark my words. Yeah, a government shutdown would only impact “non-essential” federal government functions. And, yeah, some might even argue that the government should only be doing the essential things in the first place. But that will be of little solace when you’re bleeding on the ground, being eaten alive by the starving masses. I can scarcely imagine the horror. If non-essential government agencies and departments are forced to close for a short period of time, that means we’ll have to find a way to go without the Administration on Aging, and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission, and the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. WHERE WILL I GET MY TRANSPORTATION STATISTICS?! You’re playing with fire, conservatives. Civilization is bound together by the strong, steady hand of bureaucracy. If you loosen its grasp, you risk plunging us all into a dark, perilous land of individual responsibility and liberty. Our Founders fought and died to rescue us from such a fate, and I’ll be damned if I sit here and let you undo their efforts.

Courage

COURAGE

Herman Cain says there are important, concrete reasons why Ted Cruz’s fight matters very much.

1. The people’s voice.

People say the right things in order to get elected, but once they get there, some old Washington hand takes them aside and tells them to listen to the lords of Washington instead of to their constituents. The old guard in Washington has gotten so bad, most of the time We the People feel like we have nobody representing us. Ted Cruz is speaking on behalf of the American people.That matters. A lot.

2. Awareness.

The mainstream media simply ignores the worst aspects of ObamaCare, or makes fun of those who are pointing them out. For example, Obama and members of the House and Senate have exempted themselves and their staffs from Obamacare and voted to have taxpayers pay the lion’s share of the premiums on the gold-plated health plans nobody else can get.

3. Unexpected results.

House Republicans are now considering attaching a one-year delay of the individual mandate to the Senate bill and Sen. David Vitter is proposing an amendment to end the special health plans deal Obama and Congress gave themselves. Without Sen. Cruz fighting as he is, these things would not be happening.

One person standing in the gap can make all the difference.
