Calling All Extremists

On Saturday, Barack Hussein Obama called the American citizens who disagree with him "teabaggers" and "extremists."

Here are a few snippets in reply from some learned folks:

* Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria: “Obama’s message to the country appears to be, “We have a dysfunctional health-care system with out-of-control costs, and let’s add 45 million people to it.” Americans see a health-care bill that has been produced by the old Democratic machine rather than the new Democratic technocrats — more Lyndon Johnson than Larry Summers. It might be the only way to get a law passed, and it might please the party’s base, but it will dismay independents.”

* The Washington Post’s Fred Hiatt: “Health-care reform should not add to the deficit. It should control health-care costs. And, once reform is passed, the government will get serious about deficit reduction. Unfortunately, the House bill fails his first test.”

* Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT): “If the public option plan is in there, as a matter of conscience, I will not allow this bill to come to a final vote.”



We conservatives want to empower the people, not some healthcare "czar"

Well the Healthcare bill did squeak by - by only 6 votes. We will ramp up our activism and let our senators know that we will actively work for their opponents in the next election if they vote for this.

I'm already sharpening my claws to get Rep. Mark Kirk and Jan Shackowsky out of office. They're both disgraces and have sullied this state with their constitutionally prohibited voting records.

God bless us.

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation..

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Adrian Rogers, 1931

This Health Care Bill in the Senate = DOA

Obama's day is past. The hangers-on find themselves clinging not to a happily growing, strong, sweet-smelling and sought-after fruit tree, but to a misplanted, tainted, chemically-saturated and rapidly drying-out inedible Thing, very similar to the stuff produced by a certain peanut grower in the 70's.

Americans want everything and want it right now. The party of Pelosi and Obama and Reid are desperate to reinvigorate a terminally ill patient with this "miracle cure." This bill, they think, will fool the morons who empowered them, hoping that the "change" they so eagerly thought could be brought on by a "godlike" figure would descend upon the land like Manna from Heaven.

Not so, the hapless dolts say, as they slap the hand that voted for Obama. He's not a "god," he's just a Chicago politician, and, unlike Edward Kelly, not even a good one.

Why buy all these guns? Hell, I'll just take one from you so-called gunslingers when times get bad. Most of you don't have the sack to use them, so I'll just slap you and take them. Perhaps you should start going to the gym, it will help you run better.

""You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity"
-Adrian Rogers

How interesting. Why do I get the distinct impression that good ol' Adrian had no objection to the state utilizing its monopoly on violence to defend and enforce the interests of the ruling class?

Since we're tossing quotes about let's try this one:

"We, in civilized societies, are rich. Why then are the many poor? Why this painful drudgery for the masses? Why, even to the best paid workman, this uncertainty for the morrow, in the midst of all the wealth inherited from the past, and in spite of the powerful means of production, which could ensure comfort to all in return for a few hours of daily toil?

The Socialists have said it and repeated it unwearyingly. Daily they reiterate it, demonstrating it by arguments taken from all the sciences. It is because all that is necessary for production -- the land, the mines, the highways, machinery, food, shelter, education, knowledge -- all have been seized by the few in the course of that long story of robbery, enforced migration or wars, of ignorance and oppression, which has been the life of the human race before it had learned to subdue the forces of Nature. It is because, taking advantage of alleged rights acquired in the past, these few appropriate today two-thirds of the products of human labor, and then squander them in the most stupid and shameful way. It is because, having reduced the masses to a point at which they have not the means of subsistence for a month, or even for a week in advance, the few only allow the many to work on condition of themselves receiving the lion's share. It is because these few prevent the remainder of men from producing the things they need, and force them to produce, not the necessaries of life for all, but whatever offers the greatest profits to the monopolists. In this is the substance of all Socialism."
-- Peter Kropotkin, The Conquest of Bread; 1892
