Can We Call This Blood Money?

Well, it looks as though the way to a pro-life Democrat's vote is earmarks, earmarks, and more earmarks.

Rep. Jerry Costello of Illinois.: $1,418.7 million ($256.4 million in 2010)

Rep. Solomon Ortiz of Texas: $618 million ($726.1 million in 2010)

Stupak of Michigan: $578.9 million 

Rep. Steve Driehaus of Ohio: $332.2 million 

Rep. Marcy Kaptur of Ohio: $294 million ($305.7 million in 2010)

Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper of Pennsylvania: $236.8 million ($54 million in 2010)

Rep. James Oberstar of Minnesota.: $207 million ($226 million in 2010)

Rep. Brad Ellsworth of Indiana.: $115.4 million ($82.3 million in 2010)

Rep. Charles Wilson of Ohio: $84 million ($62.3 million in 2010)

Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania.: $67.1 million 

Rep. Joseph Donnelly of Indiana: $19.8 million ($11.65 million in 2010)

Fuck them. Fuck all of them. Fuck them for selling out their alleged position on pro-life issues for pork spending. The way this vote came down, this should be considered blood money.

But one good thing has come about: no longer can a Democrat seriously be considered pro-life.

Racism Abound And On The Rebound

Well, if you believe the meme that the Mediacrats are pushing that the opposition to Obamacare is 100% violent racist, as dipshit emeritus Frank Rich espouses, then I guess we all are racists then.

Well, well, well. Hey lefties:

CNN's murderous Rick Sanchez asks

Via Twitter,

are our fundamentalist zealots different than the ones we fight in afghan and iraq?

Which of course is libspeak for, Hey, let's have a brutal crackdown on these wingnutty wingnuts who are daring to speak out against Marxism and Marxist policies

The left are made up of totalitarian monsters, make no mistake about it.  As for Sanchez?  Another Ted Kennedy type, who got away with getting shitfaced and killing someone with their car.  You ought to be rotting in a jail cell Sanchez, you have no place in civil society.

Alea Iacta Est, Indeed

Victor Davis Hanson explains the significance of last night's vote as only he can. While the article is (as always) the awesomest of awesomes, this line caught my attention.

Subscript: Do Democrats realize that we really have crossed the Rubicon? In the future when the Republicans gain majorities (and they will), the liberal modus operandi will be the model—bare 51% majorities, reconciliation, the nuclear option, talk of deem and pass, not a single Democrat vote—all ends justifying the means in order to radically restructure vast swaths of American economic and social life. Is someone unhinged at the DNC? They just blew up any shred of bipartisan consensus when their President polls below 50%, the Democratically-controlled Congress below 20%, and health care reform less than 50%. Usually unpopular leaders and their unpopular ideas seek the shelter of minority rights and prerogatives. What will they do when they are in the minority—since they’ve entered the arena, boasted “let the games begin” and shouted “by any means necessary”?

Indeed, Professor. But please allow me to add on little addendum. By virtue of the means and tactics used in the Obamacare Debacle, the left has also crossed the Rubicon of the electoral relationship between voters and votees. The left has demonstrated that the now majority will of the people should be ignored. The left has demonstrated that if the people say, "No Fucking Way!", you just brush them aside. The left has demonstrated that their agenda trumps electoral politics. And the left has demonstrated that they hold everybody not of their own to not even be worthy to share the same air, space, time, depth, and sound as them.

The Rubicon has been breached. The voters no longer matter to the elected and their enablers. The left has deemed that they want to play rough. And to them, I (only rhetorically) say:

Why am I not surprised?

Obamacare is finally being debated, literally, in the dead of night, here, on CSPAN. (If you're not an insomniac, don't bother clicking.)

Well, at least one of Teh Won's campaign promises has finally come true.


Oops: That's just a stream of whatever they're showing right now, which isn't actually live from Capitol Hill.  Re-runs from the last few days, it turns out. 

My bad. Still, I can perhaps be forgiven for thinking they'd be debating this horrible piece of shit while most of us are slumbering.  Wouldn't put it past them.

Sen. Coburn May Be On To Something

Look at what may be developing in North Dakota.

“This “Bismarck Bank Job” provision looks like exactly the sort of backroom deal that makes the American people hate Washington and the whole process that has led to this massive, awful government takeover of our health care.  Rep. Earl Pomeroy, the only House Member from the State of North Dakota has some questions to answer.  Did he know about this provision?  Was it inserted in an attempt to secure his support for the health care bill?

Democratic Leaders owe the American people an explanation: did they cut a backroom deal on this issue?  What other backroom deals have they cut in their eleventh-hour push to jam through a bill that the American people have soundly rejected?  The American people want answers, and they deserve the truth.”

Some Numbers To Chew On

How much you want to bet that breast cancer survival rates will plunge if Obamacare passes while the lead time between discovery of a lump and an effective consultation with a specialist/surgeon team will go from two to three weeks to whenever a bureaucrat approves you will increase? How much you want to bet that fewer doctors will want to get into, or stay in, practice if Government meddling takes place? And how much you want to bet that O-care will actually make costs increase? Tell me I am wrong, and right about now, I will do to your person what William Tecumseh Sherman wanted to do to Georgia, but held back out of courtesy.

Yeah, fuck you O-care supporters. Fuck you with the used condom from that special chicken wrapped soaked in hate and around my boot. Fuck you for wanting to destroy everything and everybody I hold dear by replacing excellent service with the equivalent of "that guy" from a frat party who claims to know how to beat a drug test and/or avoid pregnancy with a can of Dr. Pepper. Fuck you for trying to demonize medical and insurance professionals who already suffer under the fucking yoke of legal harassment, and yet still are able to help people as best as they can. And fucking fuck you fuckrancid style with the fucking fuckbeagle of fuckingly fucked up fuckwitlessness for thinking that people would be better off with rationed or completely unobtainable care.

Fuck off, and stand in the back of the line you want all of us to endure.

Sure, you wanna compare Glenn Beck to the Hitlerjugend?

So, apparently Glenn Beck at some point noted that some Catholic priests and bishops reject the "social justice" (read: cede the church's traditional role in society as provider of aid to those in need and agitate for socialism) agenda, and advocates leaving churches that advocate "social justice" for ones that oppose it.  Some tool named Anthony Stevens-Arroyo in the WaPo compared him to the Hitler Youth.  Let's talk about Hitler Youth, Mr. Stevens-Arroyo,

Below the fold,

They're gonna go for it, not only that, but they're reconciling a Trojan Horse, and adding the real stuff later.

Deem This!

When Alex referenced the brazen attempts by the House Democrats, under the guise of Louise Slaughter's suggestion that the House may "deem" the Senate Healthcare Bill as passed without a vote, I thought it too ridiculous of an idea to become reality. Silly me. I thought a Bill, the exact same Bill in both houses, had to be voted upon before it could be presented for Presidential Signature. Oh well. How dare I think of such a radical idea. How dare I think the House Democrats would respect the Constitution and at least vote for a procedure (reconciliation) that, while politically toxic, is at least a vote on legislation. And how dare I think that the left in this country would step back from their bitterly divisive push for a bill that has approval ratings between PMS and diarrhea and say, "Yeah, we want this bill. But just not this way. Some things are too sacred."

Well, I guess I was mistaken. I guess this is how the left wants to play. In that vein, please allow me to offer my opinion on the matter:

Has Pelosi Been Reading Marx Much?

I report, you decide.


So, you can‘t—everybody has so much to gain from this, small businesses, as I said, seniors, young people, women, our economy. Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance or that people could start a business and be entrepreneurial and take risk, but not job loss because of a child with asthma or someone in the family is bipolar—you name it, any condition—is job locking.

Marx: The German Ideology:
For as soon as the distribution of labour comes into being, each man has a particular, exclusive sphere of activity, which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape. He is a hunter, a fisherman, a herdsman, or a critical critic, and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood; while in communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticise after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, herdsman or critic. This fixation of social activity, this consolidation of what we ourselves produce into an objective power above us, growing out of our control, thwarting our expectations, bringing to naught our calculations, is one of the chief factors in historical development up till now.

Sean Penn Supports A Murderous Thug And Anti Semitic Enabler

Fuck you, Spicoli. Fuck you and your bizzare obsession with anal diseases and arresting peoplewith whom you disagree. Fuck you and your fucking rump-fed addlepated fuckbacked puttockpuckingly Anti-Semitic peckerpicker enabling ass with the hell fucked leaden apes of fuckedupedness and towelfucking.

Who the fuck are you to tell me that I cannot criticize and mock a foreign thug on my home fucking soil? Who the fuck are you to wish a horrible disease on me because of a political disagreement? And who the fuck fuck fuckity fuckballoon of fuckfisting are you to condemn my views while you allow this shit to go on in the land of your hero?

The point is, Venezuela's Jewish community is facing an existential threat, all due to the policies and actions of that "great man" Hugo Chavez.  Many have already fled the country for the USA, Israel, and other countries across the hemisphere.  Those that remain face ongoing harassment and outright antisemitism from agents of the Chavez government.  Until Chavez's ascent to power, Venezuela was one of the few countries where there was no real anti-semitic tradition or legacy.  Jews were active in Venezuelan life, and achieved success in that society's highest levels, interacting with Catholics and Muslims in all facets of civil society.  Now, the community has nothing to look forward other than a bleak future

Yeah, how the fuck can you stay silent there, fuckhead? How the fuck can you claim Chavez is a great man while he enables violence against a religious minority? And how the fuck can you dare fucking tell me to shut up when voices need to be raised in awareness of what Chavez is doing?

Fuck you, Sean Penn. Fuck you forever with the specter of the people your words condemn to a life of misery. And fucking catch rectal cnacer yourself, you fucking dickhead.

Notice She Didn't Say She Had The Votes

One thing I noticed (warning: NYT Link) in this article was that Madame Speaker declared her confidence that she'll get  the votes needed for Obamacare, not that she had the votes. Oh well. We'll see. We'll see if she can bribe, threaten, bully, or buy off wavering Democrats to go over the cliff. We'll see if Rahm Emmanuel really does have jobs lined up for politically dead people walking to secure their vote. And we'll see if any wavering politician will accept the collect call from "History" to vote themselves into a new line of work.

Grab your helmets. It's "Go" time.
