You need an anvil to go with that hammer, Ma’am

Sonofabitch. They did it. They really did it. And they didn’t even have the sense to nix the gloating.

Huh.

I think Miz Pelosi just ordered a Number Twelve. That would be Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals #12, of course:

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

We’ve got to hang this stinking albatross around Nancy’s wattle. We know she was the balls behind this job — Obama, on the whole, being utterly useless.

But the vital message is: no-one should be tempted to reward a blue dog for being a good doggie and voting no. Vote for a blue dog, vote for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. Simple as that.

We’ll never get her out of Congress — San Fran being what it is — but we can buy-god peel her leathery talons off the Speaker’s gavel.

We got here because Democrats pretended to be things they are not. The time of pretending is over.

Let the smiting begin.

Email from Bart Gordon (my Rep in Tennessee) claiming that tort reform is in the bill.

Is it, fuck. Not that I’ve heard. Do they have any idea what’s in the bill? And now that they’ve signed it, can we see it?

Tort reform? Ha! First I’ve heard of it. I seriously doubt it…

I have a gigantic hate-on for these people. November can’t get here fast enough to suit me. I smell DemocRAT blood in the water. In the meantime, I have to patiently deal with the fucking libtards around me, who are gloating as they bask in their so-called moral superiority. If this shit is going to bite me in the ass, I hope it bites THEM doubly–no, TRIPLY hard. I’m counting on some schadenfreude to cheer me up.

“Is it, fuck. Not that I’ve heard.

There’s some bullshit number of millions going to states to study tort reform possibilities. The words “tort reform” are in the bill. Actual tort reform, of any sort, is not. Your Bart is a lying sack of crap too.

The bill has all sorts of tasty morsels in it. One of the provisions is that if you’re not covered by your company you have to purchase a government approved plan.

Bwahahaha! Why no, no company would ever drop your insurance and pay the gummint $750 instead. I can hear some companies saying, “Sorry the government has you covered.”

In fact there is a bigger incentive for companies to drop coverage than to keep it. I’m kind of hoping the car makers drop the UAW. On the plus side we can now push pretty easily that since there is a federal system there is no need to give state and municipality employees separate health insurance.

Single payer baby, just not in the manner they quite expected.

I swear they don’t know shit from shinola. obumbles had some tort reform in his pitiful attempt at writing a bill. It of course was put out there so we would all think it was IN the bill or reconcillation bits. But it never made it, like we knew it wouldn’t make it. It was just another diversion for us, they’re good at that.

Wonder how much my next pair of hearing aids will cost, what with all the increased taxes on medical devices. They lowered the limit on flex accounts, too, didn’t they? So now I don’t get to buy them with pre-tax money. Guess I should increase the amount I put aside each month.

P.S. If you put aside money each month for expected future costs (like property taxes, medical devices, etc.), have no debt other than your mortgage, and maintain an emergency fund, then you’re a sucker. Believe me, I know. I make a comfortable income for my age and location (nowhere near as comfortable as my sister, but that’s another story), and I can’t even afford living room furniture because I’m financially responsible. Other people use their comparable income to live high on the hog, running up huge debts, and when an emergency comes along, I have to pay for it.

This ant is really fucking tired of carrying water for grasshoppers.

It’s absolutely no consolation I realise, Mrs. Peel, but that is precisely the situation here in benighted Britain.

The wisest counsel you could give anyone starting out in life is ‘don’t save for your old age – spend, spend, spend and let some other poor fool keep you, when the time comes’.

I have some hope this can be repealed. They’ve done it wrong — the pain starts immediately, the benefits (if any, and there aren’t for most people) don’t start until after the next Presidential election.

Bad, bad election strategy. If nothing else.

Comment from Greg

This is all part of a 100+ year plan by Marxists–starting back before 1900–to socialize America in order to realize their “One World Government.” It’s about control. Period. Of course, they are great at selling it by disguising it as tear-ladened “concern.”

Some of the big pieces to this puzzle was:

1) the 1913 Federal Reserve Act (removing the power of the U.S. government to own its own currency and placing it in the hands of European-based “world banks” that then loaned the money back to the U.S. government at interest, ensuring we would never be out of debt) — thank Dem Wilson for that;

2) Federal Income Tax: illegal and unconstitutional (like this “health reform” bill). Never legally voted in–in fact, it was voted OUT by the States and violated the Constituional limits on the Federal government from reaching across State lines into private citizen affairs; but like all socialist/marxist initiatives, it was implemented anyway against the legal vote of 3/4 of the States (the U.S. Supreme Court refuses to hear the legal challenges to the income tax because it knows they would have to repeal the income tax, thereby bankrupting the Treasury, as all monies illegally collected via the income tax since the early 1900s would have to be refunded);

3) Graduated income tax (you can thank a Roosevelt for that), which, in principle, makes the State the owner of your money who simply allows you to have some of it;

4) the Public Education initiative; this has come full-circle now that the government bans potential students from getting private loans; the government now can dictate not only what school you can go to, but what subject(s) they will allow you to study; this dove-tails nicely into …

5) The Eradication of Christianity. This goal is explicitly stated in Communist literature for the past 100 years. Unless Christiantiy–the faith that provides the culture that give birth to concepts like “Freedom,” “liberty,” and “individual rights and responsibility”–is killed off, Communism will never abolish the Constitution. Brainwashing of students in State-run Education CAMPS is vital in the realization of this goal.

And now, with “health care reform” the Marxists finally have the power of life and death over those it deems “politically incorrect/inconvenient.” Who dares protest the government when they can remove/deny health care services from you?

The tyranny is complete. Unless people of faith DO SOMETHING NOW, there is, like John Boehner stated, “no turning back.”

My first post wasn’t long enough, so I need to add:

per the “Eradication of Christianity,” this helps to explain the current administration’s anti-Israel rhetoric and pro-Muslim stances. Islam is one of the most perfect tools to control the masses and kill off Jews and Christians (historically the only people groups to protest tyranny on a moral-principled basis and pose a social threat to dictatorships where the State/Hitler/Caesar = ‘god’ rather than the True and Living God).

Heh? Whassat? Another gin and tonic, you say?

Hm. Tricky. Zazzle is unbearably, unbelEEEvably anal retentive about intellectual property rights. Seriously, they pulled a bunch of products a few weeks ago because they had “twilight” in the title (as in, “a picture of a waterfall at twilight”), because of that stupid vampire flick.

One of these days, I’ll have to post about this. There are roving bands of lawyers going around the internet claiming IP on all kinds of preposterous shit — there’s one group that howls bloody murder if you quote Oscar Fucking Wilde on merchandise, because they own some picture of him.

None of it would hold up ten seconds in court, but little guys and outfits like Zazzle don’t want to go to court, so they pull things at the slightest complaint.

This is a serious scandal that badly needs…I dunno. Somebody getting beat down hard.

Anyhow, we might get away with “Morlock” if we could convince them it was from the book. Maybe. But nothing that looked remotely like anything from the movie would fly. Movies are a TOTAL no-go.

Shit. I’ve got to hook up with some producers in China — the Wild West of the Twenty-First C.

Lovely, wasn’t it.

Greg wrote a very interesting essay, but I’m a sucker for inspired use of angry profanity.

Speaking of, (inspired profanity, that is), I ran into a voice response system this week that ran me around in circles. So, when I got angry enough to be inspired by your earlier comments about the use of profanity with voice response systems, I gave it a whirl: not only did it work a treat, but yellin’ at the damn machine righted my sailorly keel for the day and just made life in general more fun!

Oh, and the system was at UPS. My company just entered a contract with them, casting aside FedEx. The FedEx system never required the use of profanity…if you spoke to it in an authoritative voice, it gave you what you wanted. The UPS system, however, will fuck with you. I do hope that doesn’t presage things to come, but … it don’t look good. I lay awake at night wondering if the Obamanites have a plan to nationalize UPS…
