More lies from the Obama Regime are surfacing. Just as the putrid corpse of a drowning victim will rise after a short period, the stench of the sub-surface lies of ObamaCare is coming to the surfaceone at a time.
Remember US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosis statement that the Congress would have to pass the ObamaCare law for the citizens of the USto learn what is in it? Of course, you do! Thats why she will be the FORMER Speaker of the House is a few days!
Well, they passed it and now we are learning, just as Pelosi said, what is in it. The majority of Americans STILL hate it! The more we learn about it, the more we learn what is in it, the more we hate it.
Obama is a fast learner. He has learned, since November 2ndthat he must hide his machinations from the new Republican led House of Representatives. He is going to rely on his Czars and his regulatory agencies to pass into law the control over US citizens necessary to fundamentally transform (Obamas words) America into the socialist utopia he dreams about. Conservative commentators and pundits warned Obama would do this why because he is an ideologue. He eats, sleeps, and breathes socialist ideology! He cant help himself. He absolutely MUST bring down Americas constitutional republic.
Remember the Death Panels we were warned about by Sarah Palin and other conservatives. It was the so-called end-of-life plan written into the original ObamaCare Plan. When the public learned about it, all heck broke loose and the democrats were forced to drop it from the ObamaCare plan.
But never fear. Obama is doing an end run around the national legislature, the Congress, and forcing it on the American people, anyway! ObamaCare supporters refer to it as a quiet victory.
See what I mean?
A new Medicare regulation, which goes into effect next year, will pay doctors who advise patients on options for end-of-life care, which may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment.
The Obama Regime, and his cohorts in the Democratic Party, were hoping to keep this quiet for they knew that once the public learned of it, they would immediately pressure their new Republican led House of Representatives to either force Medicare to abandon the regulation or cut off funding to effectively starve the regulation to death.
NOW do you see why so many of us were concerned that Obama would use his regulatory agencies to force the full brunt of the ORIGINAL ObamaCare plan on America??? I am more convinced than ever that THAT is THE PLAN! Czars, executive orders, and regulations have already begun pouring from the faucet of Big Brother SOCIALIST government. Watch for the stream to become a flood in very short order.
This, dear reader, is how you lose your freedom, your liberty, and your country. But how could this possibly happen in AMERICA to AMERICANS? The answer is simple, really: Ignorance and Apathy.
The public education system in America, the government schools, is turning out some of the least educated graduates on earth. The democrats run the schools. Ok, labor unions, then. But whats the difference? They are symbiotic. They feed off each other.
Americans have no clue, anymore, about whom they are, where they come from, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, freedom, liberty, what it costs to obtain freedom and, even more important, what it costs to remain free. That is ignorance of the deadly kind. The second deadly killer of freedom and liberty is not caring enough. Freedom and liberty must be cared about and CARED FOR.
Americans MUST get involved in the life of their nation. Why? The election of 2006 and 2008 ought to tell you everything you need to know. We placed our country into the hands of liberal-socialists, called democrats, and they, in turn, have taken Americaso far down the road of ultimate destruction that our actual survival as a free people is in serious question. The results of both those elections hinged on ignorance and apathy. The ignorance and apathy of Americans also gave us ObamaCare andObamas Death Panels, government officials deciding who lives and who dies, who receives approved treatment as they approach the end of their lives and who doesnt.
And this is just the beginning. It WILL get worse. Trust me.
Americahas surely entered a time of great tribulation. The handwriting is glaring at us from the wall. Americacannot continue to survive on the path she chose in the 1960s and continues on today.
The path to survival is narrow. It is hard, difficult, and certainly not pleasant. The path we are on, the path to destruction, is broad. It is wide and easy not difficult at all. But at the end lies destruction. Americas new Congress is going to need all the help it can get from the citizens of this country even when Congress doesnt want it.
I intend to aggravate the living daylights out of my congressman, who happens to be a conservative democrat. (I know that is difficult to believe.) The same goes for my Senatorsone democrat and one republican. Why because it is my job as a citizen and as a father and grandfather.
Americacan be saved. She is worthy of being saved. But we cannot save her by sitting back and waiting on the next fellow to do it.
It is time to fight backto fight for our freedom. Freedom, once lost, is almost never recovered. Doing nothing will certainly allow evil to triumph!
Where do your kids go to school?
(stand by for "not in my school district!" squeal)
PASTE THIS ON YOUR BATHROOM MIRROR AND MEMORIZE IT Vladimir Lenin: "Medicine is the keystone of the arch of the socialist state."
Once govt gets control of medical care, all the defining, controlling features of socialist govt can be introduced, one by one. O/CARE will transfer massive authority to the Obama Admin over the lives of Americans, and their businesses. E-v-e-r-y-thing Americans do is related to health.
O/CARE Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individuals bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
Socialized health care is impossible without seizing private medical records----BUT the 4th Amendment prohibits seizure without warrants. The Obama govt will do it anyway.
NEIL MCLAUGHLIN, Modern Healthcare "When Congress passed healthcare reform, we joked that the package amounted to a Full Employment Act for health journalists. There were so many provisions and questions about implementing it that it would require weeks and months to sort through it all."
Isn't that up to your congressman, how much you "aggravate" him?
Well, ok, you muster up an aggravation squadron and we'll see what good it does.
George Washington was a general in the first Aggravationary War, he fought for freedom when there wasn't even a post office to carry his pesky letters to the living daylights of the tyrant. He scribbled so hard, they called him the Bother of His Country.
Anyone else have this “interesting” exchange with a liberal who is in favor of universal health care?
Me: There are going to be people dying because of some arbitrary ruling on the part of a bureaucrat - yes, a death panel.
Lib: No, there are no “death panels”, Palin’s lying.
Me: [explaining the realities of limited resources and unlimited demand] There HAVE to be rationing boards, and therefore, some will be denied lifesaving treatment and allowed to die.
Lib: [if they understand the economic reality] Well, at least it won’t be an insurance company denying treatment!
Save your snidel, sophomoric remarks.
My ‘children’ are all responsible adults who have raised their children the way they were raised. All are conservatives as are their spouses.
It’s really amazing how many people at a forum like this, where you (er, “one”) would expect intelligent reading to occur, need to be notified that “you” doesn’t always mean YOU personally.
Especially when you’re the one who made the OP.
Well, this special-ed disclaimer is for YOU personally:
Now think about growing an epidermis if you’re going to start threads.
That’s why the Brits often use the word “One”, instead of “You”.
I have a thick epidermis, but your comment was too cryptic and I suffer after an evening of too many adult beverages.
Now. Have a Happy New Year.
Additionally, I’ll bet you don’t know what snidel means.
I don’t think even a Brit would’ve said, “Where do one’s kids go to school?”
I'll have what one is having!
I did notice the "snidel," but I wanted to be merciful with one. ;)
Happy New Year to you, Ib!
The French use “on,” sorta like “one,” when they mean we. You (one) must be very careful around them, sometimes an observation or question is actually a proposition, e.g., “One is sleeping at your place tonight?”
Also, if you say yes twice, it’s like “I do” at the altar.
