At the same time as Republicans are fighting Healthcare Reform and Universal Healthcare for all as a socialist program and denouncing government involvement in healthcare, they are inserting themselves in between a patient and her doctor, invading the patient’s privacy and medical history, and attempting to interfere in a woman’s constitutional right to have an abortion in her first trimester.
People don’t seem to get the origin of the Nobel Peace Prize, because all over the internet, you will read:
“How can they do that?”
They can do that because that was the intention of the prize….from the beginning. And it is THEIR prize. It is privately funded. They can do whatever they want. It was intended for visionaries, not necessarily an “accomplishment”.
After all, peace starts as a belief. Having the vision for a nuclear free world is huge. It starts there. Did W have that commitment? did John McCain? No. Even Hilary Clinton didn’t embrace peace as the ideal the way Obama did and does. So, it is rather special, in point of fact.
Obama Wins the Nobel Peace Prize and the “Right” Align Themselves with Taliban in Opposition to US President. The self-described “conservatives”/aka, hatriots can’t feel proud of their country if it means anything good for their President. Now, at last, the GOP has aligned themselves with the Taliban for all to see.
The National Enquirer is reporting that they’ve gotten a peek at Palin’s ghost-written (by a partisan who pals around with white supremacists) “book” and it’s one huge pre-emptive attack on Levi. “Sarah got a ton of dough from her advance, but the book appears to be nothing more than a self-serving press release touting what she calls her ‘happy marriage.’
Republicans have sold the meme that they just need more “time” to draft a good health care reform bill. More time? They had control of the House, Senate and WH for 6 years and they never even brought this issue up! They’ve had all summer to review the various plans and come up with an idea. Heck, they took us into a pre-emptive war with a sovereign nation quicker than that!
Sarah Palin’s ghost-written book, “Going Rogue; An American Life” is set to come out early, on Nov 17, in time for the holiday season, and I’m really impressed that she has now managed to complete, albeit with the help of 4 writers and who knows how many editors, one speech and one book! Looks like she may not quit everything she starts….just those things icky, hard like being governor of a state facing financial difficulties after years of being flush. When the going gets tough, the pitbull gets quittin’!
Here is an open letter that I’m writing for all of those patients who are too sick and depressed after receiving their Death Panel Denial Form to call or write you. Yes, I know, you’ve heard it all and more importantly, ignored it all, before. But let’s pretend United cares about my health.
Sarah Palin actually managed to show up for her speech in Hong Kong, which wasn’t surprising because apparently all it takes to get her to go anywhere is a healthy paycheck. Palin spent her first speech on foreign soil trying to equate herself with President Obama, and going on the attack. Welcome to the new definition of patriotism in the GOP.
Republicans and Joe Wilson shamed this nation, shamed their party, shamed South Carolina, and shamed their office last night. Having established that our Republican representatives are liars and/or illiterates, it seems that being Republican representative should be considered a pre-existing condition. As such, We the People no longer wish to pay for their healthcare, which they currently receive for the duration of their lives after serving.
Levi Johnston keeps dropping bombs on Sarah Palin as in the new Vanity Fair piece where he claim wanted to secretly adopt, her teenage daughter’s baby, “Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him.”
In what’s been described as the “American Ding Dong goes to Hong Kong” by astute international posters, Mrs Sarah Palin (failed beauty contestant, failed VP candidate, and aborted first term Governor) has been asked to speak at the CLSA Investment Convention in Hong Kong, where she will give a speech on a topic such as geopolitics.
We keep hearing from the far right that they want their country back. What country are they talking about? I fear they mean the brash, cruel America of the last 8 years, instead of the America built on the ideals of social justice for all. When they say they’re losing their “freedoms”, they’re referring to not healthcare, but their guns.
This week in politics brought us irony so thick you can cut it with a knife, as the Republicans waged war against the American people’s right to healthcare, using their standby shock and awe campaign. What’s shocking is that The Royal Republicans haven’t come up with another game yet. Terror, shock and awe? Is that all you got? Looks like they blew their wad in August.
Republicans are playing the terrorism card to dissuade Attorney General Eric Holder from investigating torture. Nine GOP lawmakers have sent a letter to Holder warning that the U.S. could face a terrorist attack if the attorney general appoints a special prosecutor to investigate the CIA’s use of torture against “war on terror” suspects.
Rev. Wallis also said we need to stop the hate at the Town Halls, and pointedly mentioned that lying about the plan is not right either. He quoted the bible, “I am my brother’s keeper”, and translated that to mean that we have a moral imperative to do the right thing, which is to take care of our fellow Americans, otherwise known as “all God’s Children”. Gee, this is the first I’ve heard that all of us count as God’s Children. This is news. Good news. Even the cities? I suppose so, because the Reverend didn’t try to divide American by region the way Republican haters like Palin and Bachmann have done.
Just because Michele has Crazy Eyes, doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love her. Not only does God love Bachmann, but God speaks directly to her. Opens doors for her. Anoints her, even. And now He wants her to run for President. Take that, you anti-American liberals!
Apparently, the Republican Clown Show is making decisions for us right now, even though we are in the majority. Sarah Palin’s infamous “death panel” lie has infected the dialogue and Newt grabbed her torch of cynical dishonesty. Newt, as you know, needs no help doing or saying whatever is most politically expedient for him. From there it spread to Grassley and then invaded the majority of the Republican representatives. They now won’t commit to whether or not they think Obama wants to kill grandma.
In the case of Sarah Palin’s accusation against Obama, I guess I’m gonna have to go with all three (stupid, lying, and lazy), with a strong emphasis on #2, because during her administration, the state so mismanaged Medicaid that over 250 people died waiting for the program. Hundreds more did not receive treatment. Over eight lawsuits were filed against the state division, bringing the attention of the state auditors, who notified Alaskan officials on June 26 that the entire program was being shut down due to mismanagement. In fact, the Supreme court ruled last year that the state had improperly cut off or reduced services to more than 1,000 needy people.
Ex-governor Sarah Palin stands accused of the federal crime of attempted bribery in addition to violating the Alaskan constitution, in connection to a lawsuit previously filed against Palin. The Plaintiffs, who filed the amendment to their original lawsuit in federal court on Aug 3, 2009, allege that Palin offered state funds and support of legislation to third parties in exchange for those parties convincing Plaintiffs to drop their original lawsuit in federal or state court.
Just when you thought Real Americans were going to be shut down in Town Hall meetings across the country, democracy thwarted yet again by the Thug Tactics of the right, we hear a rallying roar from our union brothers and sisters.
