The Dumbing Down of America

Just when I started thinking we had hope for our next generations.

How lacking has our culture become that we can not read something and understand or comprehend?

How insulting is it to have our government support making a freaking comic book to explain why something they made is good?

Whether you support the Health Care Reform Act or not, in this instance is moot. The sheer audacity behind this particular publication is absolutely amazing. Essentially by this publication, the author is saying “Your too stupid to understand this. Here’s a comic book.”

Have we really fallen so low?

The scariest part is, someone will read it, and think it gospel.

Health Care Overhaul Ruled Unconstitutional by 2nd Federal Judge

Judge Roger Vinson of Florida, appointed by the late President Ronald Reagen in 1983, ruled today that the Health Care Reform Act (sometimes called ObamaCare) was unconstitutional.

He is the second Federal Judge to do so, and his ruling helps in clearing the way to a decision that will almost absolutely end up at the foot of the Supreme Court. Unlike his Virginia counterpart Judge Henry Hudson, Judge Vinson ruled that the entire health care act should fall if the appellate courts join him in invalidating the insurance requirement.

“It is difficult to imagine that a nation which began, at least in part, as the result of opposition to a British mandate giving the East India Company a monopoly and imposing a nominal tax on all tea sold in America would have set out to create a government with the power to force people to buy tea in the first place.”….

…”For example, virtually no one can opt out of the housing market (broadly defined) and a majority of people will at some point buy a home. The vast majority of those homes will be financed with a mortgage, a large number of which (particularly in difficult economic times, as we have seen most recently) will go into default, thereby cost-shifting billions of dollars to third parties and the federal government. Should Congress thus have power under the Commerce Clause to preemptively regulate and require individuals above a certain income level to purchase a home financed with a mortgage (and secured with mortgage guaranty insurance) in order to add stability to the housing and financial markets (and to guard against the possibility of future cost-shifting because of a defaulted mortgage), on the theory that most everyone is currently, or inevitably one day will be, active in the housing market?”

From the Ruling of The Honorable Judge Roger Vinson Case 3:10-cv-00091-RV -EMT Document 150 Filed 01/31/11

Judge Vinson held that the insurance requirement exceeds the regulatory powers granted to Congress under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. He also wrote that the provision could not be rescued by an associated clause in Article I that gives Congress broad authority to make laws “necessary and proper” to carrying out its designated responsibilities.

The federal government argued that Congress has a right to regulate the insurance market because it is unique— it’s fair to assume that every single person will need health care at one point in his or her life. If they’re not insured, their costs will have to get picked up by other consumers, driving up rates for everyone and putting them in the insurance market whether they plan to or not.

“I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the act with the individual mandate. That is not to say, of course, that Congress is without power to address the problems and inequities in our health care system. The health care market is more than one-sixth of the national economy, and without doubt Congress has the power to reform and regulate this market. That has not been disputed in this case. The principal dispute has been about how Congress chose to exercise that power here,…While the individual mandate was clearly ‘necessary and essential’ to the act as drafted, it is not ‘necessary and essential’ to health care reform in general…Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void.”

The decision will likely face an immediate filing by the federal government for a stay, and the case is undoubtedly headed to the Supreme Court.

Wall Street reform? And this guy is gonna do it?

Obama reasoning on Wall Street Reform:

” … we also have basic rules of the road in place to make sure that investors, consumers, shareholders, the economy as a whole are protected against excess. Are protected against wild gambles that are taken– purely– because it’s– it’s good for some body’s– year-end bonus. As opposed to because there’s some economic function that actually– contributes to society as a whole.”

I love the way this guy speaks, he’s like a black William Shatner!  ” We’ve — got to — reform — Wall Street before — the rich get — any — richer — and they make — too much ——— profit for thier — hard work and ——- knowledge of the market ”  This radical socialist president WILL NOT STOP until the whole country is controlled by the Government, and folks – It scares the hell out of me.  What if we get so far in that no one can save the simple Liberties of the American people, and if you think this is not serious, think again.

Bodies of Lies II: Vets still not covered by Health Care Reform

You may remember my rampage.

The one where I said:

The Democratic Party, and this Administration’s word is not worth a slap to the face.

They will sell their souls to get their way. They will tell you anything to get your support. They have no loyalty. No patriotism. No sense of honor. No pride for their country or themselves. There is not even a shred of responsibility running through their veins.

This is beyond a travesty. This is an absolute …outrage.

It continues ladies and gentlemen. It continues.

®Evil News: Politicians – Georgia Edition

Today’s politician: John Oxendine

Headline: Oxedine Says “No” to Insurance Pool

 ATLANTA (AP) Georgia’s insurance commissioner says he won’t move forward with state participation in the first phase of a new federal health care plan, even though it could bring federal grants to the state.

Whats this?  Is someone standing up for the rights of Georgians?  Well, its about time.  I was wondering when my great state of Georgia was going to join the fight against this unconstitutional health care BS.  Whats more, the commissioner isn’t even worried about the $5 billion in federal grant money that he is turning down by opposing this insurance pool.  I would hope more Georgia politicians would follow suit and not be taken in by the non-stop lowlife bribery that is currently running rampant in this so called government.  I thought that the folks on capitol hill were supposed to look out for the best interest of its people, and not when the next kickback or grant was coming.

Waste of Time: Claire McCaskill

Before the Health Reform Act was being rammed down our throats I sent an E-mail to Claire McCaskill’s office.

I had sent similar E-mails to my other representatives Roy Blunt, and Kit Bond.

Senator Bond and Congressman Blunt returned my E-mails within 24 hours. Both more or less echoed my concerns regarding the Health Care Reform Act, and gave me highly personalized E-mails dealing directly with the points I had raised.

This is the second time Senator McCaskill has waited until after an event has passed to respond to something I have issued. I can understand being snubbed by a Senator. However I would expect a much more direct E-mail to a individual, rather than the devils ham approach I was given by her twice now.

My reaction? Don’t bother contacting her. It’s a waste of time.

Replace her St Louis, if you have an ounce of sanity, replace her.

Below the fold I have included her response to my E-mail I sent back on March 3rd.

Today’s politician: Patty Murray

Headline: Man arrested for threatening Democratic Sen. Patty Murray over health care reform

 

WASHINGTON – A man enraged over health care reform was busted by the FBI Tuesday for threatening to gun down Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who supported the controversial legislation.

“I hope you realize there’s a target on your back now,” Charles Wilsonof Selah, Wash., told his home state senator in a threatening voicemail left at her office late last month after the sweeping health care bill passed.

Federal prosecutors transcribed 16 profanity-laced calls Wilson, 63, allegedly made after-hours to Murray’s offices from March 22 through Easter Sunday.

Well, you know what they say, don’t piss off the voting public when they have aright to bear arms.  In my opinion, guns should be used to protect yourself from attacking enemies, and the politico’s that voted for health care reform could fall into that category.   <—- of course this is only opinion, and I am in no way justifying assassination of anyone.

Can I have 17 minutes of your time, Mr. Obama?

I love this title“The Great Elaborator”.  This weekend the president held a Q&A session with some workers at a factory in NC, and was asked a simple question, in which he rambled on, and made impressive lists, (as he is well known for his list making), and pretty much had, what I will be referring to as “story time”.  Any chance he gets to exercise his bolstering “charisma” its always a good comedy in my eyes, I popped the popcorn, and listened “attentively” while he rambled.  What the hell, there was nothing else on anyway.

Here is the full story.

 *Mar 30 - 00:10*

 

I think this should have happened yesterday, because this has surely got to be a joke.  Isn’t it enough that we have to see this looney toon on the news, and screwing up the American freedom in the headlines, now she is trying to host TV shows?  This shows just how much the TV producers are grabbing at straws to try and entertain the general public, the show she should be hosting is called “Who Wants to Deprive the American People”.

And right at the buzzer…..

Georgia Governor Will Appoint ‘Special Attorney General’ to Sue Over Health Care

Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker, a Democrat, has refused to file an anti-health care mandate lawsuit, and called other AGs’ decisions to do so “political gamesmanship.” Undaunted — and, of course, very concerned about the rule of law — Gov. Sonny Perdue (R-Ga.) is appointing a “special attorney general” to sue the federal government anyway.

The governor said the state constitution gives him the leeway to appoint a special attorney general if the elected attorney general fails to carry out the wishes of the governor… When asked if Baker broke the law by refusing to carry out his instructions to initiate a lawsuit, the governor said,  “I think the (state) Constitution is is clear. I think the people of Georgia can make their own determination about that.”

Perdue’s referring to the voters, I think — Baker is running for governor — but that’s really something to accuse your attorney general of.

I was wondering when the great state of Georgia was gonna get off the side lines, and actually compete in this thing, and we finally have.  Lets just hope we have some success, because lets face it, all the poles I have seen have the general public opposing this thing, and we deserve to be represented. 

Good job Govna’

And now we lose our credit…

As some of you know, the USA has a AAA credit rating.  That means that at the moment when the Government spends too much money, we can borrow the money we need from other country’s, such as China.  Some will argue that no matter what happens, China will not stop lending us money because they “need us” in the effect that our economy, and our purchasing of their products actually sustains their economy.  But now that our spending has gotten so far out of control, that we have never been this far in debt, and in not so many words, China is threatening to sell off our debt to other countries. 

US May Lose Its ‘AAA’ Rating

The United States may be on course to lose its ‘AAA’ rating due to the large amount of debt it has accumulated, according to Martin Hennecke, senior manager of private clients at Tyche.  

 

“The U.S. might really have to look at a default on the bankruptcy reorganization of the present financial system” and the bankruptcy of the government is not out of the realm of possibility, Hennecke said.

“In the United States there is already a funding crisis, and they will have to sell a lot more bonds next year to fund the bailout packages that have already been signed off,” Hennecke told CNBC.

In order to solve or stem the economic slowdown, Hennecke suggested the US would have to radically reduce spending across all sectors and recall all its troops from around the world.

As for a stimulus package, there is not much of an industry left to stimulate back into life, Hennecke said.

Did everyone catch that?? “recall its troops from around the world”   well, thats just great.  Not only are we in this huge debt, we might – er, most likely, er will be forced to tone down the military pressence, and our defence will be weakened  –  and heres the catch:  The whole worls knows it!

So, for all those people that just love this health care reform, is it really worth it to spend yet another 3 trillion dollars that we do not have, just to provide some people with insurance?? I am not insensitive, nor am I uncaring.  I know that people are suffering and can’t find jobs, and like wise cannot get health insurance.  Also I know that health care needs a serious reform, and restructuring, but this bill that will be made law later today is too much!  Its too much money, and its too much fluff.  For those of you that go on praising this thing, let me give you just one example of what is in this thing, as I have actually read this monstrosity: there is an article nicely tucked in there that requires any restaurant that has more than 20 locations to post calorie counts on their menu’s and drive through windows, this also applies to vending machines.  Hmm….I wonder how much that part costs.  The scary part is, the is just one of the literally thousands of needless, senseless, and costly things that are included.  So, in conclusion, before you start sending praise to your congressman, and your so called leaders, do yourself a favor, and actually read what you are praising, and for once use the brains that God gave most of you.

Apathy: An Unhealthy Reform

Part 2 on our current status quo. Continued from here. -BS

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.

William H. Borah

In 1961 Dennis Wrong  (Robertson, 1989) drew attention to a process he called “over-socialized conception”. In principal, it is the idea that we are little more than predictable products of harmonious socialization in the grand societal order. Or in other words,  people tend to feel, or are subconsciously pushed by their fellow society in to doing things they do not truly wish too do. Dennis goes on to point out that this indicate that, as we have all known for a very long time, society is not perfect. However let us take our current situation and apply Wrongs ideology.

I find this fitting considering yesterday. More on that later tonight as I have time.BS

Goodbye old friend….

The vote is in        219 – 212  —> and not one Republican on board, that’s a bold statement……

 

Well, our old friend The United States is dying, and this American is sad, frustrated, and down right mad.  Also, I am concerned for the well being of my fellow countrymen.  I have heard that there is a flimsy deal that was struck so that the deciding few votes from Democrats, who are pro life, would vote yes  on health care, I’m not an idiot, but they may be.  Maybe they are just using this “executive order” as a way of saying  “at least I voted as ‘pro life’ ”  Aaaaaahhhhh  BS! 

Health Care Bill Passes; Pro-Lifers Not ‘Fooled’

The House on Sunday voted to pass a health care reform bill that pro-life groups say is the biggest expansion of abortion funding since Roe v. Wade.  

Despite a last-minute deal between Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and President Obama who promised to issue an executive order making clear that no federal money would pay for abortions, some Christians and conservative groups say they are not “fooled.”

“[A] flimsy promise of an executive order from the President may make it more comfortable for ‘pro-life’ Democrats like Rep. Bart Stupak to vote for the bill, but in the end, such an illusory promise is not even worth the paper on which it’s written,” said Concerned Women for America CEO Penny Nance.

The House voted 219-212 on legislation – the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – that is considered the biggest transformation of the U.S. health system in decades. The $940 billion bill would extend coverage to 32 million uninsured Americans and ban insurance company practices such as denyingcoverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

 

There was also chatter from some key Dems that when it came down to the wire, and the “yes” votes were lacking, they wold change at the last minute to a “yes” vote  if  “the president needed it”.  Now thats some shady stuff.  

 

Nancy Pelosi, and her little cohorts must be in hog heaven today, maybe they will celebrate by patting each other on the backs, and doing some good old fashioned bribe payoffs, this republican remains unimpressed.  Don’t even get me started on the rants of almost every female saying that “being a woman is a pre-existing condition” give me a f-ing break, that’s probably the biggest load of crap I have ever heard.  One thing those representatives are good at is crying rivers, and one more thing:  I am now convinced that those shady Dems voted yes purely because the “president” said so, and my proof:  the cries of  “Yes We Can” when the 216th vote came in.  Yes You Can kiss the presidents a$$, and Yes You Can get voted out of office in November when the Republicans go to their poles, and Yes We Will remember.  By the way, Mr. President, while you are giving away money, can I borrow about a billion dollars, I know you can spare it.

Running out of fuel?

I certainly hope so.  President Obama, the kingpin of health care reform, is set to speak Saturday in hopes of roping in the last few demacrats to a “yes” vote.  He has postponed his trip to Asia to make this speach, I can’t help but to wonder if the trip was planned  just to be postponed in an effort to make it seem like this speach, and health care itself, feel like the most important thing going on today. 

What really puts me out, is the fact that the President isn’t talking about anything else in his current presidency, its like he has forgotten about the other problems facing this country.  What about the deficit, what about the homeless, and what about all the starving people here at home that can’t find jobs?  Does this so called BS health care bill trump all those problems?  Those are just a few of the problems that need to be addressed off the top of my head.  A President is supposed to be a multitasker, he is supposed to have a list of things to do, and to pass down that list to the people in his administration, and let them find ways to carry them out, and then he is supposed to say “yes, or no” to the the methods  that they give him.  He is not supposed to be a cheerleader for some half-baked solution, that isn’t really needed in the first place. 

Lilke I have said berore, we, as Americans are not in a Socialist society, we need a President that looks out for the greater good of this country, and not ignore the peoples voice.  When not a single Republican votes “yes” to a bill, there is something wrong.  When you have to cancel trips to meet with other countries to yell, and coerse representitives for a vote on a bill that is losing steam, something is wrong.  When you are trying to use old, old, old techniques such as reconciliation, and deem and pass, just to get a bill passed that you know might not get the votes it needs, something is wrong.

Mr. President: What about the other problems in this country?  Have you forgotten what your job is?  Put down your pom poms and pay attention to us!  People are dying, and you ignore thier cries for help while you masquerade around as the peoples president, and forget what you are here to do.  Stop turning a deaf ear to the things that really matter.  Let your administration fight the small battles, and you give the American people a chance to have a better life, and a a chance to have a President that deals with all the pressing issues we face, not just the ones you want to be remembered for.  You like Diversity?  Then be Diverse in your administration by looking at the country and its problems as a whole.
