Bye Bye Democrat Party

R.I.P. Democrat Party, you just f*cked up real bad by passing this Communist/Marxist/Progressive abortion of health care "reform" over the weekend when you thought the American people weren't paying attention. Well Dems, I hate to tell you this, but WE WERE PAYING ATTENTION!!!! We were jamming the House switchboard with phone calls, warning you not to pass this Marxist Monstrosity. But as usual, you arrogant bastards didn't listen. Your holier-than-thou, we know-better-than-you mentality trumped the will of the American people. Well Dems, time's caught up with you. You're not going to get away with passing this unconstitutional legislative piece of sh*t. I'm betting the Supreme Court will overturn it, and if they don't you will be voted out of office this November. Then the Republicans/Conservatives will gain a substantial majority in both houses and repeal this piece of legislative sewage, and because of the huge majorities the GOP will gain in both houses, your boy Obama won't be able to veto the repeal because the GOP/Conservative controlled Congress will override the veto. Sorry Democrats, but this November will be a political bloodbath for your party. And it will be a tremendous victory for the real Americans  (Conservatives, Libertarians, Classical Liberals, etc.) You f*cked up by taking your mask off and finally revealing what you really are. You are Communist/Marxist/Progressives that need to be, and will be, brought down and reduced to political irrelevancy. Your time has come, and none too soon. You have been wiping your collective ass with the United States Constitution for far too long now and enough's enough. You will be reduced to political irrelevancy this November 2.  You've had 100 years to f*ck this country up. Hopefully it won't take the real Americans as long to make it right again. Oh and by the way, if you try to keep yourselves in perpetual power by election fraud, beware! We're watching! You've awakened a sleeping giant and the giant is pissed off. And if any of you lefties/progressives reading this are offended by the coarse language in this post I have this to say, kiss my ass and go fuck yourselves.

From the Wall Street Journal: Slaughter House Rules

 How the Democrats may 'deem' ObamaCare into law without voting

We're not sure American schools teach civics any more, but once upon a time they taught that under the U.S. Constitution a bill had to pass both the House and Senate to become law. Until this week, that is, when Speaker Nancy Pelosi is moving to merely 'deem' that the House has passed the Senate health-care bill and then send it to President Obama to sign anyway.
Under the 'reconciliation' process that began [Monday] afternoon, the House is supposed to approve the Senate's Christmas Eve bill and then use 'sidecar' amendments to fix the things it doesn't like. Those amendments would then go to the Senate under rules that would let Democrats pass them while avoiding the ordinary 60-vote threshold for passing major legislation. This alone is an abuse of traditional Senate process.
But Mrs. Pelosi & Co. fear they lack the votes in the House to pass an identical Senate bill, even with the promise of these reconciliation fixes. House Members hate the thought of going on record voting for the Cornhusker kickback and other special-interest bribes that were added to get this mess through the Senate, as well as the new tax on high-cost insurance plans that Big Labor hates. So at the Speaker's command, New York Democrat Louise Slaughter, who chairs the House Rules Committee, may insert what's known as a 'self-executing rule,' also known as a 'hereby rule.'
Under this amazing procedural ruse, the House would then vote only once on the reconciliation corrections, but not on the underlying Senate bill. If those reconciliation corrections pass, the self-executing rule would say that the Senate bill is presumptively approved by the House -- even without a formal up-or-down vote on the actual words of the Senate bill. Democrats would thus send the Senate bill to President Obama for his signature even as they claimed to oppose the same Senate bill. They would be declaring themselves to be for and against the Senate bill in the same vote. Even John Kerry never went that far with his Iraq war machinations.
This two-votes-in-one gambit is a brazen affront to the plain language of the Constitution, which is intended to require democratic accountability. Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution says that in order for a 'Bill' to 'become a Law,' it 'shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate.'
This is why the House and Senate typically have a conference committee to work out differences in what each body passes. ... If Congress can now decide that the House can vote for one bill and the Senate can vote for another, and the final result can be some arbitrary hybrid, then we have abandoned one of [James] Madison's core checks and balances. Yes, self-executing rules have been used in the past, but as the Congressional Research Service put it in a 2006 paper, "Originally, this type of rule was used to expedite House action in disposing of Senate amendments to House-passed bills." They've also been used for amendments such as to a 1998 bill that "would have permitted the CIA to offer employees an early-out retirement program"—but never before to elide a vote on the entire fundamental legislation.
We have entered a political wonderland, where the rules are whatever Democrats say they are. Mrs. Pelosi and the White House are resorting to these abuses because their bill is so unpopular that a majority even of their own party doesn't want to vote for it. Fence-sitting Members are being threatened with primary challengers, a withdrawal of union support and of course ostracism. Michigan's Bart Stupak is being pounded nightly by MSNBC for the high crime of refusing to vote for a bill that he believes will subsidize insurance for abortions.
Democrats are, literally, consuming their own majority for the sake of imposing new taxes, regulations and entitlements that the public has roundly rejected but that they believe will be the crowning achievement of the welfare state. They are also leaving behind a procedural bloody trail that will fuel public fury and make such a vast change of law seem illegitimate to millions of Americans.
The concoction has become so toxic that even Mrs. Pelosi isn't bothering to defend the merits anymore, saying instead last week that "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." Or rather, "deeming" to have passed it.

From yet another email

The devastation and ignorance being caused by this
catastrophic occurrence will forever destroy the
fiber and character of a once great nation
with little hope for correction or rebuilding
at the present rate of duplicity and complacence
being displayed by the American public.

I don't know who came up with the idea for this drawing, but it is GREAT!

From an email; The Investor's Business Daily

A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%

England 46%

Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:

U.S. 93%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

U.S. 90%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

U.S. 77%

England 40%

Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

U.S. 71

England 14

Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":

U.S. 12%

England 2%

Canada 6%

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to England or Canada.

Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."


He is "elderly" himself but be sure to remember his health insurance is different from yours as Congress has their own high-end coverage! He will never have to learn to accept "inconveniences"!!!


The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is... a real life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages.

T. Roosevelt........ 38%


Wilson ................52%


Coolidge.............. 48%

Hoover................. 42%

F. Roosevelt......... 50%


Eisenhower........... 57%

Kennedy.............. 30%


Nixon................... 53%

Ford..................... 42%

Carter.................. 32%


GH Bush................. 51%

Clinton ................. 39%

GW Bush................ 55%

And the winner of the Chicken Dinner is:

Obama................ 8% !!!

Yep! That's right! Only Eight Percent!!!..the least by far of the last 19 presidents!! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business? They know what's best for GM...Chrysler... Wall Street... and you and me?

How can the president of a major nation and society...the one with the most successful economic system in world history... stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?.. or about jobs when he has never really had one??! And neither has 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers! They've spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs....or as "community organizers" when they should have been in an employment line.

It seems even God's not on Obama's side

From the minister:

We were in slow-moving traffic the other day and the car in front of us had an Obama bumper sticker on it. It read: "Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8".

My husband's Bible was lying on the dash board & he got it & opened it up to the scripture & read it. He started laughing & laughing. Then he read it to me. I couldn't believe what it said. I had a good laugh, too.

Psalm 109:8

"Let his days be few; and let another take his office. "

At last - I can voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up - it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray.

When in England ,

at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the

carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he

A Boeing engineer

stood up and replied quietly: "Our carriers have three

hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are

nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to

Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a

French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many

languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that

we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than

speaking French?"

Without hesitating,

the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the

Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't

Quote For the Ages; writer unknown

This should be published Nation Wide

Great quote. To bad we don't know who wrote it....

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” -- Author Unknown

How Appropriate (and scary)

The man on the left is Nikolai Ezhov, the head of the Soviet NKVD from 1936 to 1940  (translated into  the English alphabet, the People's Commissar for Internal Affairs, the forerunner of the KGB.) Ezhov was Stalin's right hand man and the architect of the Great Purges of the 1930s. Ezhov was executed  on February 4, 1940 in the basement of a smal NKVD station in Moscow rather than the main execution chamber of the Lubyanka to ensure total secrecy, lest Nikolai Ezhov reveal embarrassing secrets about Stalin in a formal trial. He was succeeded by his deputy, Lavrenti Beria.

The Yard Sign

5 Mar 2010

The yard sign...

Ralph, My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts (Obama bumper stickers, gung-ho socialized medicine, "guns should be banned", etc.). So last week I put this sign up in my yard after one of his anti-gun rants at a neighborhood cocktail party.

The sign wasn't up more than an hour before he called the police and wanted them to make me take down the sign.

Fortunately, the officer politely informed him that it was not their job to take such action without a court order and that he had to file a complaint "downtown" first, which would be reviewed by the city attorney to see if it violated any city, county, or state ordinances, which if there was a violation a court order would be sent to the offending party (me) to "remove the sign in seven days".

After several weeks he was informed that the sign was legal (by a quarter of an inch) and there was nothing the city could do, which obviously made him madder.

I tried to smooth things over by inviting him to go shooting with me and my friends at the hunt club but that seemed to make him even more angry. I then asked him if he wanted to go to a Tea Party rally but again he declined my outreach efforts to bring about a better understanding between political and social opponents.

I am at a loss how to reconcile our long relationship (notice I did not say friendship), any suggestions would be welcome.

Presidential Arrogance, Low-Class Chicago-thug Style

So now our "president" addresses senators and congressmen by their first names when they have to call him Mister President. It's a typical intimidation tactic used by corporate chieftans, MSM media interviewers, and organized crime thugs. It just illustrates what this "president" is all about: power, control, and dominance over the people of this country. Given half a chance, this man would be a dictator, a third world banana republic dictator and we'd be his "loyal" supplicants. "John, the election's over, you can stop campaigning..." what an arrogant bastard. Mr. Obama you're a thug and no president. In order to be president, one must understand the United States Constitution; something that this man doesn't. He should go back and read articles I, II, and III  all of which tell you all about separate but co-equal branches of government. He's the president, not the King, or Emperor or Maximum Leader as Noriega in Panama referred to himself. Mr. Obama is basically a low-class Chicago thug, nothing more, nothing less. Bravo to John McCain for standing up to this thug and not taking any crap from him.
