Reality vs. Rhetoric

You really need to listen to this entire O’Reilly broadcast.

Krauthammer Pans New Obamacare Offensive: You Can’t ‘Repeal Reality with Rhetoric’ [8:56]

2013_11 Employment in America - GOP vs DEM

Obama’s approval rating dropped 9 points in one month, hitting the lowest point ever (37%) in CBS polling of Adult Americans. Obamacare approval dropped 12 points in one month, also hitting the lowest point ever (31%) in CBS polling.

Obamacare disapproval is not only high (61%), but VERY high when you factor in that three-quarters of these STRONGLY disapprove.

  • 7% think the Affordable Care Act is working well.
  • 48% think changes are needed to make it work better.
  • 43% think the law should be repealed entirely.

Americans are too stupid

“Resentment is like taking poison hoping it will kill your enemies.”….Nelson Mandela

Little did he realize he occupied a jail cell where Barack Hussein Obama would stand one day. He’d have been thrilled.

R.I.P.

Before we start with the fun stuff I know some of you are dying to hear about the hard-hitting interview conducted by one Christopher Matthews.

It was everything you could imagine and worse.

He actually said this: “He came to us. He came amongst us.”

MK Ham tweeted: “And, lo, the president came upon them, and the glory of the president shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.”

It was really bad,folks. Bozo grinning from ear to elephantine ear as Tingles vomited drek all over his wingtips. Chrissy was smart to wear a dark suit so people wouldn’t notice him pissing on himself (I hope it was just pee.) Toughest question: who would be a better president? Plugs or Cankles? Of course,they’re the best veep and SOS EVAH,according to his royal Pettiness. There is a youtube embedded at the first link where Tingles is having a circle jerk with Howard Fineman,the stinking crapweasel David Corn and some broad whose face is blocked by the start button. I didn’t want to know bad enough to watch it to find out. Judging from the nicely tanned hands I’d guess it was their junior race baiter,Melissa Hairy-Scary. I’m pasting a couple links in case you’re really,really into pain.

“Al Gore  accepted the fact, even though he won by 600,000 votes, that W. was president. And the Democrats accepted the legitimacy of George W. Bush 100 percent,” …you can’t make this stuff up…unless you’re a lib.

The Clown Show Continues

A year ago, President Obama’s uncle Onyango “Omar” Obama was arrested in Massachusetts for drunk driving. When asked for comment, the White House insisted that the President had never met the man. This week, “Uncle Omar” testified under oath at his deportation hearing that his famous nephew had actually lived with him for a while.

Oh, you meant the Uncle Omar who has been in the United States illegally since 1963! Well, shoot. Sure the Prezzy knows HIM. Or, as the official statement goes:

“The President did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The President has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.”

So let’s see … when he needed a place to crash, Uncle Omar was his pal, but once he got into politics where an illegal drunk driving relative would be a liability, he has never met the man.

Yup. That’s Barack Obama.

The high-larious PR spin Jay Carney put on this was … see, when we were first asked if the president knew Omar, we looked in his book and didn’t see any mention of him having met the man, so naturally we told the press there was “no record” that Barack had ever had relations with this relation.

But now, of course, there is a record … a court record … so naturally we are now saying we were wrong then, but it was totes our mistake, nothing whatsoever to do with the Boss, cuz you know, we just never thought to just ASK him, “Have you ever met your Uncle Omar?”

Send in the clowns.

A quick historical look at H.R. 3590 (111th Congress)

Obamacare was all Democrat

October 8, 2009: H.R. 3590 (111th Congress): Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009

PURPOSE: To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to modify the first-time homebuyers credit in the case of members of the Armed Forces and certain other Federal employees, and for other purposes. The original text is @ http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?c111:1:./temp/~c111X9TifA::

PASSED: 416 YAY vs. 0 NAY.

December 24, 2009: H.R. 3590 (111th Congress): Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA)

PURPOSE: To hijack a revenue bill started in the House in order to ram through the Senate’s health care bill, which the House refused to initiate as is required by the Constitution for all revenue bills. The only thing the Senate kept was the number “H.R. 3590”; everything after that was completely DIFFERENT.

PASSED: 60 YAY (all Democrats*) vs. 39 NAY (all Republicans)

*Two YAY votes were cast by Independents who caucus with Democrats.

March 21, 2010: H.R. 3590 (111th Congress): Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA)

PURPOSE: Any bill amended by the Senate must be returned to the House for another vote. This bill was not “amended” so much as it was entirely REWRITTEN in a blatant effort to by-pass the intention of the Founders TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE FROM BEING TAXED WITHOUT SUFFICIENT REPRESENTATION.

PASSED: YAY 219 (all Democrats) vs. NAY 212 (16% Democrats, 84% Republicans)

March 23, 2010: H.R. 3590 (111th Congress): Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA)

SIGNED by President Barack Obama (Democrat)

Prohibition: Law of the land for 14 years

2013_12 05 80th anniv of repeal of prohibition

1919: The requisite number of State legislatures ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, enabling national Prohibition to become the law of the land.

Supporters of Prohibition believed banning alcoholic beverages would reduce or even eliminate many social problems, particularly drunkenness, crime, mental illness, and poverty.

1925: Journalist H.L. Mencken noted that five years of Prohibition had succeeded in completely disproving the Prohibitionists’ favorite arguments.

“There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished.”

Support for Prohibition eroded among voters and politicians. Against expectations, many women also supported repeal, again because of seeing the destructiveness of the law itself.

Even John D. Rockefeller Jr., a lifelong nondrinker who had contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars toward getting Prohibition passed, switched sides after seeing the widespread problems it caused.

1932: Democrats, including their presidential candidate, Franklin D. Roosevelt, campaigned on repealing the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The next year, both chambers of Congress and the requisite number of State legislatures ratified the Twenty-first Amendment, which repealed Prohibition.

December 5, 1933: All Federal Prohibition laws were officially repealed.

Please note: Prohibition was both passed and repealed by amending the Constitution, which can be done in only one of two ways:

  1. Two-thirds of the House of Representatives, two-thirds of the Senate and three-fourths of the various State legislatures must all agree to vote for the amendment. This is the method used to both pass and repeal Prohibition and is, in fact, the only one used to date.
  2. Congress can be by-passed if two-thirds of the State legislatures call for a Constitutional Convention, then amendments proposed at the Convention are ratified by three-fourths of the State legislatures.
