Madam Pelosi's House Of Ill Repute
Investors.com ^ | March 22, 2010 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Posted on 03/22/2010 4:49:23 PM PDT by Kaslin

The Vote: Conned by the promise of an ephemeral executive order, the last holdouts cave and ObamaCare advances. It doesn't add a single doctor or hospital room, but needs 17,000 new IRS agents to enforce it.

Congressman Bart Stupak, D-Mich., spent months spelling out in minute detail how the Senate version of the health care overhaul permitted federal funding of abortion through its failure to expressly prohibit it.

In the end, he cashed in his principles for an unenforceable executive order that is trumped by the Senate bill he voted to pass.

An executive order is not the law of the land. Neither can you amend a law via executive order. The Senate version of socialized medicine will be the law of the land. It trumps any executive order, a ruling every court will make every time. As Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., reminded Stupak before the vote, this executive order can also be erased by another executive order at any time. It has the strength of gelatin and the life expectancy of a fruit fly.

Stupak was had. So was a bare party-line majority of the House of Representatives, in the face of bipartisan opposition, which proved the adage about everyone having a price, whether it be increased water rations for California's San Joaquin Valley or a bank in Rep. Earl Pomeroy's North Dakota that's now the only one in the country that can still issue student loans.

After the vote, a weary Stupak, stood at the corner of the Capitol and lit a Havana. As he threw the still-lit match onto a passing Republican, a lesbian-of-color-with-seven-children-who-survived-male-abuse asked him, “Congressman, what kind of helathcare have you passed?”

“A totalitarian one, madam, if you can keep it,” he replied.

Man, that first line says a lot doesn't it?...

There was no con.

Stupak is a leftist and couldn’t care less how many babies get a pair of scissors through the base of their skulls.

As long as socialism advances he’s feelin’ fine.

May I suggest that we all start a townhall campaign this summer that these people won’t soon forget. They think last year was nasty?

These people do not deserve a peaceful summer vacation. We should protest in front of their offices, their private homes, we should make their lives a holy hell.

Stupak was had.

No he wasn't... he's a political whore negotiating a better price. We don't know the full payoff yet... but it'll slowly be revealed over the months. The people who believed he would stick to his principles were the ones who were 'had'.

That grin she had on her face as she walked into the Congress this weekend left a very eerie impression on me. Those teeth stuck out as if her lower jaw did not exist.

In the meantime we can boycott gay Frisco, since they keep Pelosi in congress:

We will never be able to defeat Pelosi, the Mafafi witch, due to the love affair between her and the gay agenda pushers/voters in Gay Frisco.

However, Gay Frisco can be brought to its financial knees.

Gay Frisco is having a severe economic meltdown due to the benefits for union thugs and illegals.

If every American Adult, who dislikes the Health Care farce pushed on us by Pelosi, boycotted San Francisco re visits, meetings and products, we can make that liberal gay hell hole a miserable place to live and try to work in.

Boycott Ghiradelli Chocolates!

Boycott Trans America Financial Products:

Boycott Gap Inc./Outlet: Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, Levi Strauss/Dockers

I see in the first photo that Pelosi has taken on Obama’s nose in the air pose. Two peas in a pod.

Pelosi Galore and 0b0z0 with their noses in the air remind us of the facists who ruled Italy until the Italians with a sense of decency had enough.
