ObamaCare: Killing An Already Dying Economy!

Barack Obama signing the Patient Prot...

Can you say … Duh!  The Affordable Care act (ObamaCare), Obama’s only real achievement since becoming president in 2008, is in real serious trouble. A new AP poll finds that only 1/3 of Americans support his takeover of our nation’s healthcare system.

Many small businesses have already had to start cutting employee hours or even have been forced to have layoffs to avoid the business-killing regulations imposed by ObamaCare.  This has not helped an already terrible economy.  To make matters worse, the recovery has also been further stalled by uncertainty as Obama’s massive tax hikes (you know, the ones Nancy Pelosi had to “pass” the bill to see were hidden in it) have slowly come into the light.   But then, Pelosi can just exempt herself from ObamaCare … can’t she.  Handy … isn’t it!

Small businesses aren’t the only ones trying to mitigate Obama’s jobs-killing rules, either. Even unions have begun to understand how bad ObamaCare will be and have started making noises … and asking if it should be repealed.

Remember Obama’s claim that his new law would lower medical costs for all? Now, even the government is admitting that costs will actually go up as a result of ObamaCare. In fact, insurance rates and healthcare costs are skyrocketing as the full effect of ObamaCare is beginning to be realized.  Maybe somebody should have read it before Congress rammed it on through!  Ironically, Sen. Democrat leader Harry Reid just recently asked for even more money for ObamaCare.

Some elected Democrats are running scared over their support of ObamaCare, worried that it will cost them their seats.  And it should!  Republican or Democrat, we pay our representatives a six-figure salary to do their jobs … which should, I would think, include reading and understanding the legislation they are voting to pass.

ObamaCare is making healthcare costs go up,  is already making healthcare harder to get, is already driving doctors out of the field, is driving up the costs of business, depressing wages, and is hurting our already delicate economy.  We have Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their group of radical, non-reading left-wing thugs to thank for that!  Remember that in 2016!

You Just Can’t Fix Stupid!

WillieWonkaNew York: In New York State, where they already have lots of gun control laws and law-abiding citizens are already effectively rendered defenseless; it seems criminals actually do get guns … dare I say it … ILLEGALLY!  And then, they actually commit crimes with them!  And … worse yet … they shoot police officers (like the 3 officers shot in two separate shooting incidents last night) with them!  So progressives want to create even MORE defenseless law-abiding citizens … by passing still more laws for criminals to ignore?

~You can’t fix stupid!

Nearly 30,000 New Laws in 2012:  It seems that the American Sheeple are in desperate need of regulation!  With the popular re-election of President Barack Obama, the Democratic Party has been able to harness the feverish desires of the American Sheeple for even greater implementation of Progressive doctrine. In the first year of his Presidency, Obama’s administration enacted 40,697 laws, not counting the thousands of helpful and necessary regulations enacted through his Czars and various administrative organs of the State.

These regulations and laws serve to free the American Sheeple from having to worry about making bad decisions that might actually have consequences. By blindly following the regulations set forth by the Obama administration, American Sheeple will not have to be concerned about making any decisions that prove to be inconvenient … or prevent them from receiving their fair share of other people’s money.

More regulation means safety and security, and security is the only real kind of prosperity that is worth having. The Obama government guarantees prosperity for all its citizens through the equitable redistribution of the hard-working man’s earned wealth to those who simply prefer to go on the public dole.

With so many new laws, 2013 is bound to be a year of great prosperity!  President Barack Obama is so confident in his new prosperity plan that he has returned to his estate in Hawaii for the second time in a month, signaling his confidence that America is blindly marching forward towards Socialism without any real impediment or opposition.

~ Nope … you really can’t fix stupid!

Michelle Says: Being President … Reveals Who You Are!”

She is so correct in that.  I could not agree more.  I just can’t believe she actually said the at the Democratic National Convention!

Just look at a few of Obama’s broken campaign promises:

  • Cut the deficit (Obama called Bush unpatriotic for running a $4 trillion deficit … what does that say about his $16 trillion?)
  • Transparent government
  • No more pork

So where are we now ….

Administration                                              Bush                                       Obama

Unemployment   Rate                                   7.8%                                      8.35

Median Income                                              54,983                                   50,964

Gas Price Per Gallon                                     1.84                                        3.82

National Debt                                                 10.6 T                                    16 T

So, let’s see … to date 16 so-called green companies like Solyndra, have gone belly up after receiving free “Obama Money;”  costing taxpayers billions of dollars.

Now that’s hope and change we can all get behind … don’t you think?

No wonder Obama cronies are fighting the proposed Voter ID laws tooth and nail … they really do need North Carolina’s 30,000+ registered  dead voters to vote for him (I understand some of these dead voters actually have voted).  I mean, they even had to dig up a dead guy to bash Romney at their convention!

I read this very good post by Erick Erickson at Red State.  He makes some very good points! Hope Erick doesn’t mind my spreading the word and posting it here in its entirety.  I’m not claiming any credit, it is not my writing … all credit goes to Mr. Erickson!!

Despite making clear that I was not advocating a third party, but rather recognizing that one will spring up if the Republican leadership does not pay attention to the state of its own party, many not only assumed wrongly my advocacy, but resorted to the worn out argument of the Republican leaders over several generations — “we must fight the Democrats first” or the variant “the top priority is beating Barack Obama.”

The problem with this argument is it never ends. How many more trillion dollars must we add to the national debt before the “wait and focus on the other side first” crowd wakes up to what they have enabled?

When George Bush decided to pass Ted Kennedy’s No Child Left Behind plan as his own, conservatives were told they needed to rally and help the President, given his victory while losing the popular vote. We needed unity.

After steel tariffs for Pennsylvania, “hush,” we were told because we were trying to set the stage for a re-election.

Then came the prescription drug benefit and we better not challenge the President because … 9/11 … patriotism … build the party.

He nominated Harriet Miers and more than half the conservative establishment beclowned themselves standing with him.

Then came immigration reform and those who disagreed from the right were racists. Solidarity!

TARP . . . the General Motors bailout . . . still Republicans told Republicans we couldn’t hold our own side accountable because we needed to fight the left “and oh my goodness litmus tests!!!!!”

Earmarks? “Litmus tests!!!!” and “pshaw, they’re just a little teeny-tiny piece of the budget.”

That was some time around $10 trillion in national debt.

Then the GOP began cutting deals with Barack Obama. “Trust them,” others said, “they have a plan.” The tea party led them to victory and the tea party congressmen started voting just like their leadership. The debt ceiling increased, spending expanded, Pledge to Nowhere pledges were breached, and still we hear “we have to fight the other side first.”

And then there was the Senate variant, “Oh Mitch McConnell had to do that or else Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins and . . . and . . . and . . .”

Friends, at what point do we hold our side accountable? $20 trillion in debt? $50 trillion in debt? Contrary to what some of you want to think, it was not the Democrats who got us to $16 trillion in national debt. It was bipartisan. Some of it legitimate, much of it not, and all to the tune of “let’s focus on the Democrats instead. They’re the real bad guys here.”

The leaders of the GOP give lip service to smaller government but just last week shut down legitimate private businesses to feed the leviathan more tax revenue. Republicans in the House of Representatives are now urging candidates not to sign the ATR tax pledge and Republicans in the Senate are cutting deals that will boost revenue because — deficits. And still they add to the debt.

So if not now, when? Not until we’re all speaking Chinese apparently.

If the conservative movement cannot fight on two fronts, we’re screwed. But some of you will be okay with that as long as its an elephant and not a donkey screwing you.

The Real Story of Racism in Today’s America!

Remember how Conservatives are supposed to be racists?

As I look at the leadership of the Democratic Party, I see Howard Dean, John Kerry, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi.  They do have their “useful race-baiters” like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Barney Frank … but not too many senior black leaders.  The Republicans, however, have Michael Steele, Allen West, Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice, Alan Keyes, and Clarance Thomas; but somehow we are labeled racist! The icing on the cakes is that, in the spirit of reverse racism, these intelligent, independent-thinking black leaders are labeled as Uncle Toms or Race Traitors by the left-wing liberal elitists, their biased media lap-dogs, and progressive or left-wing liberal blacks  … simply because they dared to step off the progressive-liberal plantation.

Real Hope and Change

Did you know that the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Christian Denomination in the U.S., formed during a pre-civil war split with Northern Baptists over the issue of slavery.  For much of the last century they supported segregation and fought civil rights legislation.  Traditionally and not surprisingly, in the past, there has not been a strong black presence in the Southern Baptist Convention.  These are many of the same folks Obama chastised for “clinging bitterly to their Bible and their guns.”  Can’t get much more conservative than that … can you?  Did you know they are on the verge of electing their first Black President … the Rev. Fred Luter, Jr.  The Rev. Luter is highly respected and admired as the man to lead the Southern Baptist Convention forward.  Rev. Luter’s rise within the Southern Baptist ranks has been a slow and steady process, the result of the dedication, leadership, and creativity that helped him turn a struggling inner-city church of 50 members into the largest Southern Baptist church in Louisiana based on weekly attendance. Now that is real Hope and Change, put forth by those evil, racist conservatives! Who would have thunk it?

Real Modern Racism: Obama gives $1.2 Billion given to black farmers.

I know this is an older story,  but somehow it kind of slipped under the radar of (translation: “was ignored by”) Obama’s lap-dog liberal media …  so I am trying in my own small way to bring the issue into the light.

Through the Department of Agriculture, President Obama’s administration authorized the use of $1.2 Billion of our tax money to go to black farmers as payback for years (decades) of discrimination. (Fox News, Nov 2010)  The Agriculture Department said that this “affirmative action” was necessary in   “addressing an unfortunate chapter in USDA’s civil rights history.”  In October 2011, a judge gave the government approval. (Huffington Post)

“This agreement will provide overdue relief and justice to African American farmers, and bring us closer to the ideals of freedom and equality that this country was founded on,” Obama said in a statement.

So my tax dollars are being given to black farmers in the name of freedom and equality?  Wait just a darn minute … Mr President!  Members of my family fought and died … serving in the Union Army and giving the ultimate sacrifice … their lives, in the name of freedom, liberty, and ending slavery in this country!  So, Mr. Obama, how is this “fair” to me?

The Democratic Party, which Obama is a member of, was the party that controlled the Supreme Court and pushed through the Dred Scott Decision supporting slavery and effectively defining black slaves as  personal property…  with no more rights than say … a shoe.  It was the Democratic Party that fought Civil Rights legislation tooth and nail until a Republican President enforced Civil Rights legislation with the National Guard.  George Wallace was a DEMOCRAT!  The KKK was made up of DEMOCRATS!

Either Black democrats don’t know their own party’s history … or are they, in fact, simply slaves on a new progressive modern plantation … a left-wing liberal utopia where their new masters give them “free Obama money” and in return they vote the way they are told?

Typical Obama action: Bypassing Congress

The real truth … Obama was again simply bypassing congress and using his cabinet appointees to enact policy and spend more tax payer money to buy future votes. It was, when you cut through all his fancy rhetoric, a simple power grab.

And as a final note, that judge that approved this, simply sanctioned and allowed for reverse discrimination in the form of money being given to people of only one ethnic background.

Black Democratic Congressman Joins Republican Party!

English: Official congressional portrait of Co...
English: Official congressional portrait of Congressman Artur Davis. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I salute Congressman Artur Davis, the former Black Democratic Senator, who has left the Democratic Party because in his words,”wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities.

On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country.”

I am sure Artur Davis will be excoriated for this in the liberal press.  He will be labeled an Uncle Tom, etc.  It is unfortunate that any independent, free-thinking Black man or woman who steps off the Democratic Plantation gets treated in this fashion.  But, then again, this is the same administration that labels me a possible terrorist because I am white, former military, and an NRA member; and I support true Freedom of Speech (not just the freedom of politically correct speech), the Second Amendment, states rights, and I love (and have always been proud of) my Country without having to “fundamentally transform” it first.

I am a conservative and I am not a racist.  For a long time it has seemed to me that Liberal Democrats are the ones always wanting to categorize us (black, white, hispanic, gay, etc.) and then pit one group against the other; while conservatives tend to think in terms of “Americans.”  Most of the conservatives I know base their decisions about a person on that person’s character; not their creed, color, or religion.  While there are certainly some racist conservatives out there, the party that uses race as a weapon is, and has been for a long time, the Democratic Party!

Can I get an “Amen!”
