Castro Approves

| Comments (0)

 

Oh, happy day, America! Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, sweetheart of Hollywood and other left-wingers everywhere (if not his own people), has given America his stamp of approval for the passage of the health-care monstrosity last week.

Last Thursday, Castro called America’s willingness to pass such a sweeping law, a law so akin to his own leadership style, a “miracle,” (never mind that “America” did not pass this atrocity; a handful of corrupt, elitist politicians did it without consent of the people; no doubt another aspect much admired by Fidel).

Though a profound fan of Obama, Castro made it clear that this President still has a long way to go before he receives the Cuban leader’s full endorsement. Nevertheless, the U.S. President’s transforming the American health-care system in both leaders’ own images was certainly a step in the right direction toward “the success of [Obama’s government].” Indeed Castro is proud to see Obama following Cuba’s lead in socializing, nationalizing and rationing health care, “something,” said Castro, “that Cuba was able to do half a century ago.”

As a follow-up, I suggest Americans who aren’t looking for Castro’s endorsement take a look at one of my favorite films An American Carol. Within this comedic Christmas-Carolesque spoof of propagandist Michael Moore (the best part being Kelsey Grammer’s George S. Patton; he is wonderful!), you will find a celebration of the true spirit of America and her history, attention paid to the very real threat of jihad and the ACLU, and a glimpse into Castro’s Cuban health-care system. When you watch it, think about Obama and his minions working so hard to relegate us peasants to such a system – a system from which these tyrants have ensured that they, like Castro, will forever be immune.

“To Control the People”

| Comments (1)

Yesterday I was listening to Dennis Miller on the radio, and someone called in and said:

It’s a sad day, when people place all their hopes and dreams in a politician rather than in themselves.

I came home, this sad idea still in my head, and heard the bombshell that I trust will become one of many rallying cries for those, like me, who find the direction a certain administration and Congress are taking our country to be abhorrent. The speaker was veteran Congressman John Dingell (D-MI). I trust you have heard it by now, too. If you haven’t, you will:

The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways, it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.”

Got that? “…to control the people.” You’ve heard of The Twilight Zone’s “To Serve Man.” Well, do the math.

Dingell has since claimed he didn’t mean it. He was tired. Then he claimed he was talking about insurance companies. Sorry, John. You revealed precisely what you and your conspirators are up to. Not that we the people are at all surprised; it’s just good to hear you confess. We thank you for handing it over so easily. It now goes down in the book of the permanent record – for you  and everyone else driving this and your collective goal “to control the people.” In other words, for all who voted “yes.”

Then evening came. And the next assault: news of yet another staged photo-op, designed to tug at the hearts of ignorant America, the people the left believe to be nothing but shlubs ripe for believing anything they feed us. It seems my old friend Patrick Kennedy, whose name has appeared on previous posts on this site, placed a note on father Teddy’s grave. “Dad, the unfinished business is done,” it said. And he cried. For all the cameras.

Plenty we could say about this, but I’m just gratified knowing that I am not the only one who wondered how the press en masse was alerted to his pilgrimage and his laying of the note on the holy shrine. Needless to say, the lapdog media went apoplectic over this heartfelt moment, though I haven’t heard any gushing as they did following Ted’s death that “Mary Jo would be proud” or “Mary Jo would think it was all worth it (for what it’s worth, no she wouldn’t). I haven’t heard anything, either, about Obama’s and Teddy’s “ordinary Americans” responding quite so emotionally. Even though the lapdogs told us to in their mission to help the left “control the people.”

So before any more comes down the pike, I’m saying good-night. And hoping that someday, the lump in my stomach, and my feeling that I have been plopped down in some foreign land (or planet?), will be nothing but blips on the historical radar. And they will be relegated so, because, Congressman Dingell, we will not be controlled.

Just Imagine…

Just imagine if President George Bush had gone on to Fox News with Bret Baier a couple of months after a massive earthquake in Haiti, and justified  a “special deal” with Louisiana, a so-called Louisiana Purchase, where hundreds of millions of dollars were promised to Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in exchange for her “yes” vote on a health-care bill despised by the American people. Imagine him whimpering that because Louisiana “has been affected by a natural catastrophe that has created a special health-care emergency in that state…They should get help.” Imagine him continuing, “It also affects Hawaii, which went through an earthquake.” Consider for a moment the similarities in the names “Hawaii” and “Haiti,” and imagine that that same President had been known to count the number of U.S. states as 57.

Just imagine if, upon his return from an insult-riddled, gaffe-rich visit to Israel, Vice President Dick Cheney had joked about the beleaguered nation, our fierce ally, at the Radio and TV Correspondent’s Dinner, giggling that, “It’s great to be back in a place where a boom in housing construction is a good thing.”

Just imagine President George Bush proclaiming to the American people that, “I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about what the procedural rules are in the House or Senate.”

Just imagine if George Bush had told members of Congress to sacrifice their seats and careers for him and his economy-busting, probably unconstitutional, inherently corrupt, possibly criminal health-care bill that the vast majority of Americans despise. Just imagine him begging them to fall on their swords for him, because “elections aren’t important.”

Just imagine if President Bush’s Press Secretary Dana Perino had gleefully insisted that the President would gladly sign a catastrophic bill despised by the American people, even if it were passed in a known corrupt and unconstitutional manner.

Just imagine if on St. Patrick’s Day, VP Dick Cheney had asked God to bless the soul of the Irish President’s late mother, only to be reminded that the woman is still alive.

No need to imagine any of this, because all of these comments were actually made within the last few days by members of this current administration. Just substitute the names Obama, Biden and Gibbs for Bush, Cheney and Perino – add to the list VP Joe Biden referring quite truthfully to the press assembled at the correspondents’ dinner as the President’s “base,” and you’ve got yourself a nice, clear read on this administration. Imagine that.

Why?

Why would a man place his hand on a Bible – Abraham Lincoln’s Bible, of all Bibles – and vow to honor and uphold the Constitution of the United States, then set out consciously and publicly to defy the tenets of that document, as well as the people that document represents?

I suppose we already know the answer to this question. Indeed the man now occupying the White House, his wife, the minions with whom he has surrounded and insulated himself, as well as his kindred spirits in the United States Congress, have all made it abundantly clear that the document they are sworn to uphold is meaningless to them. Most, including the President, made this disdain clear when they were running for office. What they did not publicize quite so blatantly was their desire to tear this nation apart from its guts, and rebuild into a distorted and weakened entity that does not even begin to resemble the blueprint set forth in our Constitution, the blueprint they apparently fraudulently swore to honor and uphold.

So I ask: Why are these perpetrators so hell bent on destroying our nation?

It goes beyond a simple lust for power. The President of the United States has power from that title alone. A great deal of power emanates from a congressional seat, as well. No, there is something far more insidious at play here. This current President and his wife have made no secret of the fact that their motive to claim the White House had nothing to do with love of country. Quite the contrary. America needs to be punished, they and theirs have told us, and they and theirs are just the people to carry out the punishment.

Why they have grown to feel this way, well, I won’t use labels (at the moment), but I’d say it has all to do with the so-called “inner child.” The people now running this nation, from the couple occupying the White House, through the administration, to the radical majority in the Congress – and, by extension, the squishy, wishy-washy Congresspeople who have elevated the term “for sale to the highest bidder” to a whole new level – they all seem to be acting out according to their inner demons and past, probably childhood-related, affronts.

Given the realities of early biological brain development, and my own experience as a mom, I firmly believe that by the time a child reaches about 5 years of age, he or she is pretty much formed in terms of who he or she is and will be. We have all had the so-called “inspirational,” and certainly fuzzy, story of this President’s early beginnings jammed down our throats, so it’s not all that difficult to make the leap from that childhood to the man we see before us today. As we know, he is not alone in his mission, so I think we are witnessing a mass expression of childhood angst at the federal level, and it is not at all pretty. The inner children, the perpetual 5-year-olds, have been given the keys to the kingdom, and they are running amok, to the detriment of us all.

Even as I write this, these people are plotting a coup, right out in front of us, for all America to see. They are colluding at this moment to make law a bill that promises to destroy the fabric and fiber and the inalienable rights of these United States. Without a vote. Without the consent of the people. The vast majority of America has refused repeatedly to go along with their plan, so, like a mob of spoiled children, they are going to do it anyway. They tell us that Americans don’t care about parliamentary procedure and Constitutional rules. Translation: We’ll just make up our own rules. We’ll show you.

And they are laughing. Laughing at our love for that stale old document, the Constitution. Laughing at us. See them as the spoiled and damaged children they are behind the grown-up masks, and we see why.

It’s Morning in America

When a little-known Massachusetts republican wins the Senate seat occupied for decades by Ted Kennedy, endangering Kennedy’s signature issue, nationalized health care….

When you wake up the morning after that election and see a republican strategist not only appearing on MSNBC, but actually being treated with respect….

When democratic Congressmen who have voted for everything the President has mandated over the last year (particularly the health-care-reform bill opposed by one-third of the American people) state that it will be a catastrophe if democrats ignore the Massachusetts election (Evan Bayh of Indiana); that the health-care vote should be suspended until the new Massachusetts Senator is seated (Jim Webb of Virginia); and that “health care might be dead” (Anthony Weiner of New York)….

When British newspapers gleefully predict that “there will be more Scott Browns!”….

When the San Francisco Chronicle floats the notion that San Francisco Congresswoman and Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, might be in trouble….

When the morning news broadcasts footage of lifelong democrats waiting in line yesterday to cast their votes for a republican candidate because they want “to save America”….

When you hear a democratic strategist say that the democrats on Capitol Hill have awakened this morning, wondering “Is it wise for me to continue following this President?”….

When liberal pundits and news commentators for the first time openly acknowledge that the Massachusetts election results are proof that the American people are obviously not happy with the backroom deals cut by the President with the pharmaceutical companies, and the singular payoffs to individual representatives in Congress (on Christmas Eve no less).…

When you sense an outright sigh of relief among democratic politicians and certain individuals within the administration’s lapdog media who have finally been given an excuse to oppose this President, this administration and this radical leftwing agenda – an excuse to vote “no” next time and perhaps even to offer criticism.…

When Americans from coast to coast awaken, having slept better and more peacefully than they have in months….

.…it’s morning in America.

At least for now. Indeed for this lovely moment, let us enjoy the morning light and the brief sense of security that was returned to us last night by the election results that came to us from Massachusetts. Provided 100,000 absentee ballots cast for that election’s democratic candidate aren’t suddenly discovered in the trunk of Al Franken’s car, we can smile, knowing we can claim victory in this battle forever to be known as the Massachusetts Miracle of 2010.

But we can’t rest, of course. Our fight continues. Even now our opposition, haven shaken off the shock of last night’s upset, is mobilizing, designing their next tactic for bypassing the will of the American people and the U.S. Constitution. We will be ready for them, of course, just as we were this time, energized and confident that we who love this country are not alone. As we’ve said all along, 2010 is gonna be great. Last night, just 19 days in, was only the beginning.
