Obama Care

The next featured blog has been a favorite of mine since before the Robot was a stray synapse in my tin-clad head. Like many of you, I admire Pundit & Pundette’s style, straight forward nature and spot-on commentary. To me, it reads less like a blog than a news site with a bit of a smirk. Perusing P & P, I feel like I’m perhaps sitting at an outdoor cafe, discussing the day’s events over coffee with some snarky friends.

An excerpt from “TIME columnist admits we were right about Obama”

Mark Halperin of TIME magazine can just barely make out the real Barack Obama from his house:

With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters… [snip]

Isolated, insular, arrogant, and clueless. Well, that’s a start. Let’s not forget narcissistic, thin-skinned, unscrupulous, polarizing, and socialist.

Whoa. Don’t hold back there, Jill. How do you really feel?

All kidding aside, I agree with her assessment one-thousand percent. I also happen to like the way she gets her point across. Like this morning’s post:

Are we talking about the President of the United States or Justin Bieber? I was going to ask whatever happened to the dignity of the office, but then I remembered Bill Clinton.

And I was going to ask if Bill Clinton was aware of his punching-bag status, but then I remembered he’s married to Hillary.

Wait, did I just steal an analogy method from Jill?

Yes I did.

Imitation is, after all, the highest form of flattery.

We can also be thankful that Pundette keeps people like Virginia Ironside front and center. Is Mzzz. Ironside the type of person who would presume to sit on the Obamacare health care panels and decide whether or not we get medical treatment? If you answered no, you should take a deeper look into Obama’s Cabinet appointments. This is what passes for compassion in those “educated” circles:

[Ironside]: ‘If a baby’s going to be born severely disabled or totally unwanted, surely an abortion is the act of a loving mother.’

[Pundette]: It’s a cold, cold arrogance which, after a look into the future, considers the following issues for others and decides on the death sentence:

Does your life have intrinsic value? No.
Because you may suffer for years, should you desire to continue living? No.
Is your death preferable to X amount of suffering, as perceived by me? Yes.
Can suffering have redeeming value for the sufferer? No.

And let’s not pretend that the advice columnist’s “good mother” doesn’t have a conflict of interest. Her own suffering, that ultimate evil in Ironside’s world, is surely part of the equation as she ponders the destruction of her child.

Jill then adds a “palate cleanser” and some further background on the “loving mother.” The entire article begs for your attention.

She can also spot a great quote when she sees one.

When it comes to school reform, I’m with John Derbyshire:

Here is my prescription for a reform of the nation’s education system. First, destroy all the schools. Cart away the rubble for landfill and sow the ground with salt. Abolish the federal Department of Education and all state equivalents. End all education funding from public sources.

Pundit and Pundette is a site that has proved it’s worth time and time again in the realm of analysis, commentary and aggregation of news from across the political spectrum. It’s written with a style that feels like home cooking and I love the smell of freshly brewed snark in the morning…

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to bookmark Pundit and Pundette.

Add P & P to your blogrolls, and visit P & P at least once a day. You’ll be glad you did.

Be sure to let them know a rusty tin man sent you.

After much contemplation, a lot of hand-wringing analysis of the site stats, and a few beers, I’ve come to the conclusion that Bob Belvedere is right. I have a problem titling my posts. See, I’m stoopid. I was under the impression that people might actually be interested, even a bit PO’d to find out the identities of the insidious  Socialists in their State Governments, but I guess not. (Those of you who shared the posts are of course not included.)

The socialists at the national level? Who needs to search for those? They are on TV and the intertoobz every day. I can’t turn on my radio without hearing Obummer spouting off about his latest Baracklishment, and after the HealthCare jam-down, anyone who is remotely sane has already put names to their particular demons.

So, where are you going with this ‘bot?

Glad you asked.

From now on, I’m going to strive to be more creative, more exciting, tantalizing, even titillating with my headlines.

For instance, I think the “1000+ Socialists in State Governments” post could have been helped with some more panache’. How about:

“Beer Swilling Space Aliens Take Over Capitol!”

No? OK, let’s try to inject a bit more sex.

“Big Breasted Babes Danger to Mother Gaia!”

“Massive Melons Threaten to Tip Earths Axis!”

“Cleavage Crisis Widens! Enviro-Mentalists Urge Ban on Silicone!”

That one should start a riot or two.

Here’s one for the “Twilight” crowd:

“Deadly Vampire Swamp Creatures Invade New Hampshire! Ignore At Your Own Peril!(Some may be more truthful than others.)

Sure, they have no relevance to the article. So what? The New York Times and National Enquirer get away with overblown hype every day. People want entertainment. They don’t want the truth. The majority of them wouldn’t know the truth if an America-hating Commie/Muslim was in the White House stealing trillions from them for his personal slush fund and trashing the nation’s sovereignty while smacking them in the face with a Ground Zero Mosque! To them I say, careful what you ignore. In today’s day and age, what you don’t know can and will kill you.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s rant. I was really pissed off when I started this. Now I’m only slightly flustered.

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels, including the State Legislatures.

As noted in the previous post, 1000 Progressives in State Governments,

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the ‘fundamental transformation of America’

and as noted on the new Socia.list page, the members of the PSN Board of Directors include a bonafide “who’s-who” of Progressive/Socialist/Communist thought.

The Socia.list is depressingly long.

It shows just how much work we have to do to vote these people out and restore sanity to our Republic, but it can be done. Here’s how, as I see it:

1. Make note of who your representatives are along with their opponents.

2. Get that list to your TEA Party and Republican Party leaders for distribution.

3. Get out the vote!

4. Watch the Progressives lose office on Nov. 2.

5. Rest a bit.

6. Get back to work!

There are still some Progressives left, but we will have hopefully ousted enough to make the rest fear for their jobs. Go forth and strengthen the organizations you’ve joined and or started. Two years remain before we can truly turn the ship of state in the right direction, towards a restoration of our Founding Principles and a Constitutional Republic.

The new Socia.list page can be found at the top of the blog, just under the masthead and to the right of the Shoppe tab.

UPDATE: One-Thousand Progressives, according to the PSN Letter to Obama Supporting Obamacare.

Our American society has never seen the level of corruption in evidence today. It’s as if some mind controlling parasites have infested and infiltrated every nook and cranny of our system. The deeper you go down the proverbial rabbit hole, the more tentacles you find. Across borders, oceans and economic systems it reaches to control your every movement and very existence. As an example, if you were to expound and expand on Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s new healthcare plan, they would wish to grant or deny even your right to exist, as evidenced by our federal government’s obsession with killing babies. Do any of you trust your government to the point of giving them control, Chairman Mao like, over the number of children you can have? Rest assured that a government that funds elective abortions of its citizens would jump at the chance to dictate your ability to procreate at all. That type of tyranny is one that would grant such rights by your political party affiliation or what amount of tribute you bring to their throne.

If you believe, as I do, that the Progressive/Socialist/Communist agenda is at its heart, an evil one, then you must also conclude that this movement must be stopped.

Enter the Progressive States Network. Ever heard of them?

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the “fundamental transformation of America.”

I’ve seen what that transformation looks like and I don’t like it.

How does it work?

Their plan is to introduce Progressive/Socialist legislation at the State and local levels in order to gain a foothold on those issues at the national level both in the media and in the federal legislature. In the process, they are grooming candidates for national office.

A primer:

Getting To Know Your Michigan Candidates

The Progressive States Network: What you need to know

Progressive States Network – Immigration

Progressive States Network: Distorting the Electoral Process?

The Progressive States Network: Undermining Liberty one State at a Time

The Progressive States Network: Exploiting the Crisis that Progressives Caused?

Progressive States Network: National Popular Vote

Popular Vote: By the Numbers

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels.

Examples of the upwards activism the PSN pursues are their letters to Obama from our State legislators:

Supporting Federal Health Care Reform

State Legislators for Progressive Immigration Policy

Create Jobs, Give States Fiscal Relief

All three of these would sound innocuous to the normal Americans, but in reality, they are letters demanding that the Federal government become more involved in the States’ activities and our personal lives at a time when we need less Federal involvement in anything State or personal, with the exception of sealing the border.

From the “Jobs” letter:

…Accordingly, the federal government must take proactive steps to create jobs and enact further fiscal relief for state and local governments. This includes extending FMAP increases for Medicaid, providing additional support for education, boosting funding for infrastructure projects and public transportation investments, supporting the long-term unemployed to sustain them until they reenter the workforce, and providing direct financial assistance to state and local governments to perform the vital services needed to maintain growth in local communities across the nation…

Signing on to the “Jobs” letter from Texas are:

  • Rep. Garnet Coleman (TX-147) Co-chairman of the PSN Board of Directors. Garnet was quoted recently on the Marxist emag Political Affairs. Sadly, Rep. Coleman is unopposed.
  • Sen. Rodney Ellis (TX-13) Opponent:  Michael Mauldin
  • Rep. Jessica Farrar (TX-148) Opponent: Fernando Herrera
  • Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (TX-51) Opponent: Marilyn Jackson

Nowhere in that letter is any mention of tax cuts or pro-business incentives for job creation, unless you count their concern for the loss of jobs in government and social services.

Government has grown too large as it is! The people who would fight for more government and social programs over actual private enterprise and real economic growth must be ousted from office at every level of government, Federal, State and local. Failure to do so, is to leave a bit of cancer in the infected host.

Those wanting to increase government dependents have been drafting recruits while we worker bees have been busy paying for their campaign through taxes for years and recently, stimulus packages re-routed to ACORN type organizations. Obama type community organizers have been training Progressive recruits how to “help moderate members of Congress” by framing Progressive issues in “palatable” ways.

An example of from the Center for Progressive Leadership

Question: Why would I need to make an issue “palatable” if it will stand on its own merit?

Answer: Because it is a lie in need of sugar coating.

Progressives are Socialists are Communists and are by definition anti-American. It’s past time everyone was made aware of their existence and agenda.

I would encourage bloggers to research these letters and the people who signed them. Find their opponents and support them. Post them in lists by state on your blogs along with their opponents.

November is coming!

Socia.list

This weekend, I plan to create a new blog page similar to the Texas 11 that, beginning with Texas, will contain a list of the State Senators and Representatives who align themselves with the PSN, along with their opposing candidates if available.

The title of that page will be Socia.list.

Catchy, don’t you think?

If anyone would like to help with compiling that list, I wouldn’t argue.  Just send me a link or comment with your post’s url and after verifying, I’ll be happy to include it. BTW, Project Vote Smart is a valuable resource for finding that type of information.

UPDATE: My apologies to John Carey of  The Current for not giving him the proper credit for bringing this group to my attention.

Also, No Sheeples Here’s proprietor extraordinaire, Carol has created a video that echos the message in this post.

A few weeks ago, while listening to some old Hank Jr.  I remembered a song he did in the seventies called Outlaw Women. It occurred to me that it might make good background music for a tribute to the conservative ladies in the political arena today. I sought out the tune and upon hearing it again, realized that a few lines just didn’t quite fit what I thought the proper message should be, which lead to a search for a song that did fit, but I kept coming back to the Outlaw. This left one choice. I would have to rewrite some lines and *gasp* sing the thing myself.

What follows is the result of the last few weeks agonizing in the studio over enunciation and phrasing and then compiling photos and learning how to use the video software. (Thanks Carol!)

I apologize in advance if I left anyone out. You can also blame me for any mistakes or faux-pas, or you can just blame Bush. Yea, that’s the ticket. Blame Bush.

Feel free to share it with anyone who likes Grizzly Mamas and really bad vocals.

Cheers!

These are not mis-speaks. This is the thinking of the Obama regime.

I think this video should be viral. If you agree, then share it!

UPDATE: Beck produced this video in response to the smear tactics the left uses against Conservative candidates they are scared of such as Christine O’Donnell. They are using an off the cuff admission from Christine that she dabbled in witchcraft while a teenager in high school. Hmmm.

And now the Wiccans are getting their feelings hurt! How does that happen?

Wasn’t Mrs. Obummer introduced by a Wiccan at a fund raiser this weekend? Maybe O’Donnell should court the Wiccan vote a little more closely. ~ Nah.

Also, from the comments over at Riehl World View:

And don’t forget Obama’s first Social Secretary’s voodoo connection (which is probably how Obama got elected):

WSJ: “Desirée Glapion Rogers is the descendant of a Creole voodoo priestess named Marie Laveau Glapion…”
http://magazine.wsj.com/features/the-big-interview/desiree-rogers/

I’m never surprised by the depths the left will stoop to disparage an opponent. Never mind the fact that O’Donnell has since been led to Christ and is a devout Christian.

Oh. Wait. Never mind.

Also not to be missed, Carol over at No Sheeples Here has produced another outstanding piece of artistic snark you must see, so I liberated it from it’s digital bonds to decorate this wall.

From Right Klik:

Ten Buck Fridays is proud to announce that Stephen Broden is the winner of this week’s TBF poll. Broden demonstrates a profound understanding of the compelling issues that are at stake in the upcoming election.

Pastor Broden in 2009:

I’ve just made my donation to Stephen Broden’s campaign for Congress. Please join with me and the over 80 TBF blogs and patriots in support of conservative candidates who will fight for us in the halls of Congress.

Mr. Broden’s donation page is here.

Please make a note of Ten Buck Fridays somewhere on the donation form.

The new TBF poll is up in the sidebar. I would encourage everyone to research and vote for their favorite candidate. I’ve already cast my vote for Stephen Broden who, as I pointed out in the previous post is running against Eddie Bernice Johnson in TX 30. Stephen Broden is running on a platform of strong Constitutional principles and understands where Obama and the Progressives/ Liberals in Congress would like to take the country.

Right Klik has posted a list of all of the candidates with corresponding links and info for your enjoyment and edification. Please choose your favorites and make donations to these worthy Conservatives.

Here is a portion of a campaign speech from Pastor Broden on our duty to the Republic as citizens.

I must say, I really like this guy.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson falls apart in Anderson Cooper Interview
Steven Broden on the issues.
Broden on Facebook
Steven Broden on Twitter
The TBF poll in a nutshell: This is a poll designed to promote rising conservative stars. At the end of the week, the winner will be promoted by a network of over 80 conservative blogs and will receive a flurry of contributions from patriots across the country.
*To ensure that your vote is counted, vote before you view results.
When the Bob Etheridge story broke, I was pleased to learn that Bob had a viable opponent, Renee Ellmers. And as read more about Ellmers, I discovered that she isn’t just viable, she’s actually a formidable conservative candidate. As a Registered Nurse who works as Clinical Director of a Wound Care Center, Ellmers is keenly interested in taking a serious and proactive stand against the democrats’ health control legislation.
Now that the benevolent Democratic tyrants in Washington have appointed themselves to be our health care “deciders,” it’s good to see so many conservative health care professionals running for Congress. These are people who have demanding careers, but they’ve decided they can no longer stay on the political sidelines.
Both the top two candidates in this week’s photo-finish TBF poll are health care providers who are determined to dismantle ObamaCare and replace it with real health care reform. Unfortunately, however, conservatives like Renee Ellmers and Dan Benishek can’t always rely on the GOP establishment for the support they need. Recent events have reminded us that conservative reform is a threat to the GOP establishment.
That’s why we must unite at the grassroots level to defeat statism. We have to invest our own resources in order to restore our freedom. Don’t wait for someone else to do it. Get involved now by giving money directly to a candidate who deserves your help. Including today, there are only 10 Fridays between now and the November elections. Conservatives all over the country urgently need our help. This Friday, please make a generous donation to Renee Ellmers.
Donate here.
I just made my donation… now it’s your turn!

Don’t forget to make a note of Ten Buck Fridays in the donation form.

The new TBF poll is up and running in the right sidebar. I’m a bit late in posting but better late than never, as they say. Be sure to cast your vote for whomever you feel is the most deserving for a TBF wave of donations.

Also, keep in mind that John Faulk is once again included in the poll. Mr. Faulk, in case you aren’t aware, is running against the infamous Queen Sheila Jackson Lee in Texas District 18, so right away you know where this Texan robot’s vote will go.

Hmmm, come to think of it, maybe the robot’s tin head could use a ten gallon hat…

I’ll have to ponder on that accessory.

Good luck to all the worthy candidates!

Ten Buck Fridays grew from an idea by Conscientiously Conservative.

Congratulations are in order for Doctor Donna Campbell who is running against one of the 11 Texas wack-jobs that voted for ObamaCare. Lloyd Doggett decided to vote against the will of the people. He does not deserve to represent the great state of Texas any longer.
Ten Buck Fridays is shining a bright light into every corner of the country this year. Our goal is to help deserving conservatives across the nation as they fight to take the government back from the left-wing extremists who have defied the will of the people and have dragged our country to the precipice.
There’s no place for Pelosi’s liberal sock puppets to hide, not even in deep blue Austin, Texas.
Courageous conservatives like Donna Campbell need financial help. But if we all sit around waiting for someone else to provide that help, November will bring some serious disappointments.
Please give generously to this week’s TBF winner, Donna Campbell, M.D. I’ve sent my donation, now it’s your turn!
Campbell’s online donation form has a great place to identify your donation as a Ten Buck Fridays contribution.
You can find much more info on Doctor Campbell and the Ten Buck Fridays program at Right Klik.

Please enjoy the music while your constitution and country are destroyed from within. Thank you.
