It's official: 1993 again [ObamaCare Townhalls, NKorea, The Clintons and ACORN]
Illinois Review ^ | August 5, 2009 | Teri O'Brien

As noted yesterday, the liberals are at it again, engaging in projection, this time when they characterize ordinary citizens attending town hall meetings as phony plants and shills, taking their marching orders from greedy, evil insurance executives.

It’s not a surprise that liberals believe that any protestor is a paid protestor. They figure they’ve got their screeching ACORN cadres, who when not engaging in vote fraud and shaking down gutless public officials and corporate invertebrates, harass anyone with the audacity to have an actual private sector job, rather than working in “public service” or as a “community organizer.” They know that when they express outrage, it’s just a poseur’s game, designed to gain political advantage through intimidation.

Finally, they are mystified that the mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging grey mice, the bitter clingers, don’t share their Marxist world view (material things are all that matter), so much so that they keep voting against their own economic interest. One guy who wrote a whole book trying to explain that head scratcher is Thomas Franks, the sort of mediocre writer who compensates for his limited ability with his left-wing outlook. He takes a crack at wielding the liberal bludgeon against the so-called “Blue Dogs.” You guys really don’t get it. Is living inside the liberal bubble like being high all the time? Speaking of dogs, take a look at this corporate fat cat (the guy in the baseball hat), who no doubt stashed his Gucci loafers in the the backseat of his limo, which he conveniently exited a half a mile away so as not to blow his cover. He points out that B. Hussein took 6 months to pick out a dog, but wants to ram socialized medicine down our throats in 3 or 4 weeks. I can’t shake the feeling that it’s 1993 all over again. The last former democrat president has gone to North Korea to give the store away to the dead-man-walking North Korean dictator, while the current democrat president tries to leverage the sob stories of its mascots at staged events to pry the 90% of us who like what we have away from our current health insurance. Meanwhile, just as I did in 1993, I will go to a town meeting, where my representative, Congressman Lipinski (not the same guy, but his son, given my state’s system of royal succession) will face my uncomfortable questions and the anger of my neighbors. For comic relief, we have the buffoonish Secretary of Transportation, Ray La Hood, alum of the Illinois Combine, who is fast becoming my favorite comedian. Take my clunker, please! His latest bit is to hold a summit to answer the burning question: is texting while driving dangerous? This sort of important work is why we spend over $73 billion to fund the Department of Transportation. Questions for future summits planned by Washington’s new comic sensation, successor to Rodney Dangerfield: does eating a dozen doughnuts every morning while driving to work cause obesity? Is it dangerous to stand in front of a speeding high speed train? What if it's light rail? Query: now that our Dear Leader has rewarded the North Koreans for violating every agreement they have made about nuclear proliferation, and given that the Iranian troll has three hostages in custody, what will they demand for their release. A clueless, appeasing democrat in the White House, hostages in Iran, and horrific inflation on the horizon. In retrospect, perhaps, it’s not 1993. It’s 1979.

Agreed. It’s 1979 and then some. We just need our standard-bearer to arrive next year, and the rout will be on.

To: 2ndDivisionVet 1993...

actually, I would say more like 1933.

Interesting how the leftist communists are just standing on the gas peddle of National Socialism.

Classic National Socialism

The frenzy they are entering into is, in perspective, actually pretty weird. Nutjob Nancy is babbling on about “astroturfers” and how they are carrying swastikas at the Town Hall meetings. What half-sane elected official would get in front of film crews that are sticking a microphone in their face and start blabbing 100% lies regarding American Citizens?

No, really.

Would not an ordinary person on the street be hauled off to the rubber room hotel? Yet somehow a theoretically responsible, extremely high ranking public official can say such things that are blatant, provable lies and nothing is done, nothing is said, no one tries to stop them or even question it.

Doesn’t anyone think that is just a bit to close to Twilightzone Time?

“Uh, uh, uh, I think they are astorturf… you be the judge. They are carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare."

Ok, I will jump in the pool first. Nancy Pelosy, current speaker of the House of Representatives is as nuts as they come.

Insane, crazy, whacko, sociopathic, delusional NUTS.

She has lost touch with reality and should, for the safety of the public at large, be confined in a mental institution.

A really big mental institution.

There is NO WAY she should be anywhere near the Presidency.

But back to my point, no one seems to be noticing that more and more of the “democrats” or more accurately,. the communist agenda leftists, are just skipping merrily along with this. They seem to not have a clue that World WAR was fought over these exact issues. They seem to have lost touch with the fact that a huge majority of the voters today have or had direct parents that fought, suffered, sacrificed and even died in that war.

Yet some how they have all eased into the “can’t happen here” mindset.



We are seeing the first parts of a repeat performance of a MAJOR war unfolding right in front of our eyes.

I can't speak for everyone else but the documented insanity of the leftist communist agenda democrats echoing from the past is not so distant that it fails to scare the crap out of me...

Yes We Can!

Hail Victory!

Yes We Can!

Hail Victory!

Yes We Can!

Hail Victory!

“I can’t shake the feeling that it’s 1993 all over again”

If it were 1933, we would be in the midst of the murderous and bloody Stalinist Purges. More accurate would be that we are in Russia in 1917, on the eve of the October Revolution, and the beginning of the Russian Civil War.

However, Hussein’s and his minions are not National Socialists, but Mao-style Communists in their political philosophy. You need only listen to the bits about nationalizing industries, and current direct government control of various sectors. Eventually, Hussein will be unable to escape his personal ownership of corporations... and that is where the Tzars will come into their own.

At some point his blue-shirted thugs will go too far, and Hussein will either have to halt their involvement or allow them to go further...

Yep. Most folks would not have a clue as to the not-so-subtle differences in the various flavors of socialists/communists/Mao-ists etc.

Heck, I have to go look it up from time to time.

Eventually, Hussein will be unable to escape his personal ownership of corporations... and that is where the Tsars will come into their own.

Yep. He has appointed so many now I can see Tsar "conferences" and "committees" that will do end runs around the constitutional mandated procedures of the legislative branch on a daily basis. Then they will immediately go after the authority of the Judicial branch via Tsar "tribunals."

Communism’s Soupe du jour.

And hey, how about that NAZI-like snitch on your neighbor page on the Whitehouse website?

I can hardly make myself believe they did that intentionally. But once again, there it is…

To be followed by a “Young Pioneers for Obama” White House page.

The more it smells, the worse it stinks. But, we won’t have to listen to this crap much longer since Hussein has appointed a radical left guy to the FCC as Director of DIversity. He has already prepared the reguation to shut down Talk Radio completely. Internet to follow ... no laws, no votes, just regulations.
