We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The whole thing just makes me want to puke--- the plan, the lies, the treachery, the bribes, the arrogance, the spinelessness... it just goes on and on. Though my Congressman is a solid no vote, I plan on being in DC tomorrow with John Voigt and Michelle Bachmann to express my displeasure with the comrades on Capitol Hill.
Tell Obamama for me that instead of saving me 3,000 % of my insurance premium, please instead save me 1,000,0000 % of my disgust premium by simply resigning and going on back to organizing the communist party of Hyde Park --and take professors Cloward and Piven with him, do, please. The NERVE of this Red freak show --who do these people think they ARE, anyway???
obtained by Politico this afternoon is for real, it is an absolutely astonishing example of brazen and unashamed dishonesty—amazing even for Congress. It simply proves the case conservatives have been making about the Democrats’ fiscal claims, and it shows the Democratic leadership is knowingly lying and telling members to avoid getting into debates that might reveal the facts.
The memo basically says to Democratic staff and members: as you know, we won’t actually keep health-care costs deficit neutral because the extremely expensive “doc fix” will come later this spring, but we don’t want that talked about right now so that we can get fiscally conservative Democrats to vote for the bill, so just pretend it doesn’t exist.
It’s hard to see how the Blue Dogs could still stomach the bill after this. It’s perfectly clear they’re being played for suckers.
