Read My Lips

Between Cap & Trade and the pending health care legislation Barack Obama will be taxing the hell out of everybody including those making well under $250k a year. You say that obama pledged not to raise your taxes…well if you believed that you are an idiot. Watch Axledrod back away from the pledge and squirm under questioning:

If this bothers you maybe you will take comfort in knowing that the the taxes you pay on your health benefits will not apply to union workers. This payoff is on top of the tens of billions that have gone into union coffers via the the GM and Chrysler bailouts.

Well, ok, maybe you can let that one slide…

How do you feel about skyrocketing energycosts? You better like it with Cap & Trade come to a theatre near you…and don’t say Obama didn’t tell you:

Change you can believe in…

The Sheep Awaken

It’s about time that people awaken to the fact that the Country is being destroyed from within and if “Cap & Trade” and the Obama health plan are implemented there will be no recovery.

So what do the people think about what is happening in Washington? Well watch as Congressman Tim Bishop finds out:

It doesn’t look like the people are too happy. It looks like that Obama Kool-Aid isn’t tasting so good after all.

Wake up and take action before it is too late. Call and write your representatives!

Obama Comes Out of the (Socialist) Closet

6/23/09 – Obama Presser – Comrade Obama in response to a question on his health-care legislation made comments about “free market advocates” that suggested these interests were in opposition to his position. We have a President that has come out as something other than an advocate of the free market and quite frankly does not understand what a free market is. This point was underscored when Obama indicated that those free market advocates should not be concerned with competition from a “public” option. When it comes to options the government always has an unfair advantage.

I did not catch the entire press conference because the degree to which the press were acting like sycophantic lapdogs was making me throw up.

Here is some footage from CSPAN capturing a press corps member enraptured by Obama:

Obama Speech to AMA

Obama gave his spiel to the AMA today and it was stunning for its lack of specificity. I also found it remarkable that while the President guaranteed that individuals could keep their current insurance plans and doctors under his proposed legislation he made no promise that their costs would not go up.

How will the reforms be funded? The President stated flatly that he does not support any liability caps to moderate the extreme exposure facing medical professionals from an overly litigious public. The President made mention of the $600B “Reserve Account” that was already budgeted. The problem with that is over fifty percent of the anticipated revenue is from the reduction of tax deductions for the wealthy that is not even supported by his own party. The rest of the revenues are budgetary hokus pokus and cost shifts. No mention was made of the approximately 15 million illegal aliens impacting the health system leading me to assume that we will all be covering this continued expense (or that an amnesty program will legitimate these individuals and that they will therefore have coverage under the proposed plan).

Another issue I found troubling was the President’s attempt to insert himself into the lives of individuals relative to their fitness and dietary habits. The government has no business micro managing our lives. These statements foreshadow the involvement of the Leviathan in our daily lives should the proposed legislation pass.

Finally, a continuous theme throughout the speech was the denigration of anybody and any argument against the proposed legislation. Opponents are demonized much in the way that the global warming fanatics demonize skeptics and declare science the related science a “settled matter”. Here again we see the arrogance of the left and the building of the road to fascism.

Thugocracy Comes to DC

And so it begins.

Will the MSM explore Walpin-Gate?

Woops!

From the mouths of babes Biden.

David Letterman

It looks like the Palin/Letterman controversy has largely played out. Having been a Letterman fan back in the 80’s I think it is unfortunate to see Dave turn into such a weeny. What I take away from this is I now understand why Jay Leno replaced Johnny Carson instead of Letterman. It also seems to be the case that what used to fuel his comic energy, insecurity, now feeds a certain viciousness towards political opponents. He masks his vitriol under the rubric of being a comedian.
