Well, where are you gonna get your arugula?

Youse guys (I'm looking at you, Axelrod) might want to find a more effective company to send out those e-mail alerts. (Warning: The latter link goes to NYT)...

At a Whole Foods store in midtown Atlanta on Thursday, there seemed to be little awareness of the boycott, although employees said some customers had commented about it.

“I’ve had a few to come in and say I don’t agree with his point of view,” said one cashier, “but they’re still here, so….”
Good luck countering the people who don't want what your boss is trying to shove down our throats, Axelturfers, ACORNs, and SEIU goons. When you can't even get the Whole Foods shopping demographic behind ObamaCare, you might just be fucked.

Although there aren't any, if there was a Whole Foods anywhere within a few miles of here, I might stop by just to pick up an organic impulse buy or two in order to piss off an O-Bot protester.

The Left Never Wanted A Debate

I am usually lukewarm about dealing with Reason Magazine, but this story by Matt Welch regarding his encounter with a union fool leading a protest outside of Whole Foods was funny and telling.

After making my purchase with more enthusiasm than usual, I was handed another flyer from some peppy UFCW gals {wow. Union clowns involved in a pro-Obama protest. Who knew?-ed}, including the bold-italic question du jour: "Do you really want your shopping dollars going to executives who are undermining President Obama?" One of them asked me (quoting from memory), "Are you aware that Whole Foods CEO John Mackey recently wrote an op-ed attacking national health care?"

"Yes," I replied with a smile. "I read the whole thing." As I walked away one of the gals said, in genuine wonder and disappointment, "Wow...."

Yup. These fools never expected or wanted a debate. They thought they could ram Obamacare through, and everybody would just sit back and take it. They thought packing town halls with ACORN types, bringing in union thugs to beat up opponents, and an Enchanted Media still shilling for them would suffice.

They thought wrong. They didn't prepare for, or anticipate the passion behind, the protests to Obama and his Hopey Changey Astroglide Treatment. They didn't know what to do when a person with an IQ above that of rock salt would counter their bullshit. They didn't believe that the opposition would be as organized and passionate as we have been. And seeing them reduced to quivering piles of stupidity is fucking awesome.

Oh, and Team Socialism, try as you might, we won't fucking go away. Fuck you. Fuck you sideways with a sock in your mouth, with me pissing on you in joy.

Congresscritter Will Finally Meet Her Constituents

Carol Shea Porter(Dipshit-NH)  is one of many Congresscritters who has refused to meet with her constituents during the August recess. Well, it appears as though that might change.

Only hitch? She planned this meeting at the same time a prominent NH Conservative Groups and its leaders are holding a meeting of their own. Coincidence?

You need a license to have a dog - just sayin'

Good God I hate some parents.

To be crude, there's a reason why breeder is second only to the c word in my personal pantheon of profanity.  Yeah, it's the ice truck guy's fault you can't tell your little darling no. 

No offense to the parents who post/read/comment here.  (I know that Venn diagram is a solid circle)  And I'm not just saying this because I know for a true fact that one of y'all is a.  a mother and b. can take me.

I hope this is as wildly successful as Sicko

I have no idea how this freak got my email address, but I just got a spam suggesting I and my readers might enjoy the trailer for Michael "Why yes, I did eat your entire family, can I nibble on your dog for dessert" Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story.  Since I love each and every one of our eight readers, I'm not going to inflict the trailer on you, because if the stills that this wacko sent are any indication, you'd have to look at Michael Moore, and it's too early in the morning to be inflicting that on you.  What time is an appropriate time to inflict Moore on you, well, I don't have an answer for that.

If this movie does as good a job of tearing down capitalism as Sicko did convincing the average joe that public health care was the way to go, we'll be awarding Moore some sort of medal, I'm sure.

Yawn. Racist, Redneck, Bible Thumping Hillbilly Criticizes Obama.

Oh. Did I write that? I meant to write Elitist, Snotty, NYC Rino begins to criticize Obama through the tears of a groupie who learns that her hero is really a fool.

But leave it to Peggy Noonan to keep up hope for her beloved Hope and Change, with dripping contempt for the Great Unwashed thrown in for good measure.

These things are clear. I understand them{Obama's policies}. You understand them {and that's why I oppose them-ed.} The president's health-care plan is not clear, and I mean that not only in the sense of "he hasn't told us his plan." I mean it in terms of the voodoo phrases, this gobbledygook, this secret language of government that no one understands—"single payer," "public option," "insurance marketplace exchange." No one understands what this stuff means, nobody normal {I understand that stuff. I guess I am not normal-ed}.

And when normal people don't know what the words mean, they don't say to themselves, "I may not understand, but my trusty government surely does, and will treat me and mine with respect." They think, "I can't get what these people are talking about. They must be trying to get one past me. So I'll vote no."

Bitter? Heh. I laugh at your tears.

 
In a more beautiful world, the whole health-care chapter could become, for the president, that helpful thing, the teachable moment {that phrase should lead to severe beatings for any person who uses it-ed}. The president {I thought "President" was capitalized. Nice to see your Ivy League training paying dividends-ed}the past month has been taught a lot by the American people. It's all there in the polls. He could still step back, rethink, say it didn't work, promise to return with something better {I love Wistful Peggy. So much fun when her dreams are crushed-ed}.

When presidents make clear, with modesty and even some chagrin, that they have made a mistake but that they've learned a lesson and won't be making it again, the American people tend to respond with sympathy {fuck sympathy. You can find it in the dictionary between shit and syphillis-ed}. It is our tradition and our impulse{tell that to the assfisters in the MSM who wanted Bush to apologize so that they could attack him for it-ed}.

Such admissions are not a sign of weakness. John F. Kennedy knew this after the Bay of Pigs {AHA! A JFK reference. Who would have guessed?-ed}. He didn't blame his Republican predecessor, Dwight Eisenhower, or the agencies that had begun the invasion's tentative planning under Ike. JFK made it clear he'd learned a great deal, which increased confidence in his leadership. His personal popularity rose so high that he later wryly noted that the more mistakes he made, the more popular he became.

I suspect the American people would appreciate seeing Barack Obama learn from this, and keep going {yeah, back to Community Organizing for ACORN as an ex-President-ed}. He's their president{sigh. Yes he is, but I still won't support his shitty policies-ed}. He will be for the next few difficult years, which will no doubt contain moments he will have to lead us through {and judging by his "leadership" so far, we are screwed-ed}. They also probably wouldn't mind seeing a wry, modest, very human and self-critical stance from a new president who doesn't strut and doesn't swagger but does have a level of 1950s cool, Old Vegas cool, of supreme and confident smoothness that one wouldn't mind seeing ruffled a bit by that old ruffler, reality {no. We want a guy who knows what the fuck he is doing and what he shoudl do, no a Hip Prez-ed}. Critics of George W. Bush will say here, "Did he ever show wry self-criticism?" No, he didn't. And that's why it ended so well for him.

Ugh. I can't take any more.

But seeing Peggy cry like a jilted teenager is always funny. I just can't wait to see what pile of shit David Brooks presents next week.

Call me a cynic...

...but why do I have a sneaky suspicion that this will get around 0.000001% of the attention that the left and the MSM (BIRM) paid to the ginned-up Valerie Plame controversy?

The Justice Department is investigating whether Guantanamo Bay detainees charged with roles in the Sept. 11 attacks were improperly given photos of CIA officers or contractors, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

The investigation, headed by the Justice Department's counterespionage chief, John Dion, is trying to determine if military lawyers defending the detainees divulged classified information or compromised covert CIA officers, according to the person, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke only on condition of anonymity.

It is a violation of federal law to identify CIA covert personnel, and it is a violation of military commission rules to disclose classified information, even if only to the defendants.

The person who spoke to The Associated Press said the photos at issue were provided by the John Adams Project, a combined effort of the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to assist in the defense of the detainees.

Yeah, I'm sure a bunch of glossy Vanity Fair profiles of the compromised covert CIA agents will be coming out right quick.

Oh, and I should also mention that now would be an entirely appropriate time for Zombie John Adams to rise from the grave and start kicking the asses of the douchelawyers co-opting his name in order to help America-hating terrorists.

Incompetence Is Scary

As much as I want to rejoice that a lefty the likes of Nat Hentoff doesn't like Obama, I really can't too worked up about his fear of the Hip Prez.

I was not intimidated during J. Edgar Hoover's FBI hunt for reporters like me who criticized him. I railed against the Bush-Cheney war on the Bill of Rights without blinking. But now I am finally scared of a White House administration. President Obama's desired health care reform intends that a federal board (similar to the British model) — as in the Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation in a current Democratic bill — decides whether your quality of life, regardless of your political party, merits government-controlled funds to keep you alive. Watch for that life-decider in the final bill. It's already in the stimulus bill signed into law.


The members of that ultimate federal board will themselves not have examined or seen the patient in question. For another example of the growing, tumultuous resistance to "Dr. Obama," particularly among seniors, there is a July 29 Washington Times editorial citing a line from a report written by a key adviser to Obama on cost-efficient health care, prominent bioethicist Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel (brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel).



While Hentoff is correct in his assertion that Obamacare, especially if led by Ezekiel Emanuel, would be a scary creation, I am more worried about what impact their incompetence would have on everything involved in healthcare. I mean, Team Obama has fucked everything else up worse than a German Hooker on Coupon Night, so what makes you think these guys could run this Leviathan? Actually, as bad as rationing health care, and waiting for treatment would be, how would you feel knowing that assfuckingly stupid people such as Joe Biden or his ilk are trying to run and manage your health care? Yeah. Me too. I would rather drink a gallon of paint thinner than let these fools anywhere near my family or me, and that is what I fear more than any "death panels" or the like.

I knew they were incompetent but I didn't think they were this incompetent

Add New Mexico car dealers to the ones who are backing out of cash for clunkers. Why?

Ohhh maybe this has something to do with it:

Dealers across the state are owed more than $3.6 million, according to a dealers' group which says that so far Uncle Sam has only written three checks totaling about $14,000.

Good. Freaking. Lord. But by all means, let's put the US Government in charge of health care.

Because we all need to start our day filled with burning rage

Fuck. You. Scotland.

Fuck you with the barbed cock of Satan.  When the motherfucking hell did it turn into Opposite World?  Compassion?  Compassion?  Compassion for this utter waste of DNA who chose to slaughter a group of people for the crime of, well, I don't know what their crime was.  Breathing?  Being female and literate?  Not being goat humpers in some third world shit hole?

Compassion?  It's not compassion, MacAskill, you ignorant slut.  It's a slap in the face of all decent human beings.  So he's fucking dying.  WE ALL ARE YOU JACKHOLE.  So he's gonna die sooner.  Well, let me say hurray!  I hope he dies in horrible screaming pain since that's the very very very very very least that he deserves for slaughtering a group of innocent people.

Seriously, what the every loving fuckity fuck is wrong with people?  Are there seriously no consequences for anything any more?  Because it sure as fuck seems that way to me. 

You know, I hate to wish ill on people, I really do, but there's a part of me that wants something really really horrible to happen to a member of MacAskill's family and then some judge sets the guy free on "compassion" grounds.  Yes, that's awful and horrible and I'm sick at myself for even thinking it.  But I kind of do.

An Open Letter To Whole Foods Boycotters

Have I ever mentioned that Coyote Blog is one of my very favorites?  Read the whole thing:


It is good to see that you have found a tangible way to respond to the editorial written by the Whole Foods CEO.  Your ability to pursue such a boycott is one of the great things about a free market. There are literally hundreds of food shopping choices in a large city, with a variety of value propositions from the low-cost but ambiance-challenged Wal-Mart or Target to the farmers market. Its great to see folks exercising their choice in the free market to take their business elsewhere.

Besides, if nothing else, it provides the majority of us entertainment value as we enjoy the irony of people exercising their free choice shopping in the highly competitive and diverse grocery marketplace to boycott someone who advocated maintaining choice and a diversity of options in the health care market. Hope all of you have great success boycotting the single payer medical system you long for when you don’t like something it does, and I hope the single one-size-fits-all insurance option you have happens to match your individual preferences.

Promises, promises

Michael Goodwin, a New York Daily News columnist, is almost spot-on in describing the raft of empty promises that is Obama Care...

Writing in The New York Times, he guaranteed everything for everyone: "If you don't have health insurance, you will finally have quality, affordable options once we pass reform. If you have health insurance, we will make sure that no insurance company or government bureaucrat gets between you and the care you need.

"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan."

Those claims would be credible if they were a multiple-choice question, where only one is true. To say they can all happen at once is a crock, and the country knows it.

Heck, throw in a free puppy for everybody, too.

I said "almost" spot-on because he was off a little there. It's free unicorns for everyone, Mr. Goodwin. Other than that little miscue, it's an excellent column.

Nice To See Russ Carnahan Reward His Most Violent Supporters

Look at who he hired to keep his foot from getting stuck in his mouth.

U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan announced Tuesday that he has hired Sara Howard as his new St. Louis-based director of communications for his congressional operation — a choice that rekindles her old political ties with the Carnahan family.

Since 2000, Sara Howard has built a long political resume. She served as communications director for former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., and was the national spokeswoman in 2004 for America Coming Together, a massive independent (and pro-Democratic) effort to register voters around the country. Howard also has been the national media relations chief for the Service Employees International Union, and was among the key operatives in labor’s successful 2006 statewide campaign to win voter approval of Proposition B, which increased Missouri’s minimum wage.

Golly Gee, I didn't see this one happening.

Socialized Medicine Is Imploding, Says People Who Have To Live Through It (If They Survive The Rationing)

Why is it that damn near every time a person who has to navigate the Socialized Medicine clusterfuck in another country, they usually have few good words for it? Take this guy up in Canada with the fancy title and all that who dared to speak out about the problems with CanuckCare in this article. 

The pitch for change starts Sunday with a presentation from Dr. Robert Ouellet, the Association's outgoing president.  He has called for a patient-centred system and that could mean a role for private health care delivery within the public system.

Meanwhile Dr. Robert Ouellette, the outgoing president of the CMA, says he's worried about where we're headed.  The Montreal radiologist says the system could implode if we don't make changes.

Ouellette says wait times are the big worry to both patients and those in the medical communities -- doctors, nurses and therapists.  "It is possible to have a universal system without significant wait times {how? By having unicorns manage the system? Wait times are inherent in a rationed system. I don't have a fancy degree, and even I can see this one-ed.}.  This is the goal we want to achieve in the transformation we want to implement."

Yeah, there were other people quoted int the article who still support CanuckCare as it is, but fuck them, so there you go.

Maureen, you ignorant slut

I saw this excerpt from a recent Maureen Dowd column a few days ago, and I've seen similar "thoughts" expressed elsewhere recently, and something has bugged me about it, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it until now.

(Warning, link goes to, um, a Maureen Dowd column.)

The young grass-roots army that swept Obama into office has yet to mobilize now that the fight is about something complicated rather than a charismatic hope-monger. No, they can’t?

Instead of a multicultural tableau of beaming young idealists on screen, we see ugly scenes of mostly older and white malcontents, disrupting forums where others have come to actually learn something.
Um, forgive me if I'm just a white malcontent, Maureen, but what was the percentage of black voters in this country that voted for Hopenchange back in November? Who did the majority of Hispanics turn out for, in spite of McCain's (and I'm being charitable here by not using a word that rhymes with, let's say, "gandering") outreach efforts? Oh, and all those enthusiastic young suckers first time voters who turned out? Remind me again who they backed.

People don't like to admit that they were wrong, especially only a few months after they made the wrong choice. Will middle-class black and Hispanic voters come around to the idea that Obama is proposing something that would be disastrous for the country even if we weren't in the depths of the worst economy in decades? Time will tell. The youth voters who really have no idea about how the economy works, not so much.

No matter what the people who show up at these meetings look like or how old they are, I get the sense that they feel like they have a lot to lose if their elected representatives don't pay attention. And they're justifiably angry about that. But keep adding fuel to the fire, Maureen. When you basically imply that these people are a bunch of racist troglodytes (she mentions the "swastikas" thing without any apparent sense of irony) you're sure to win over a lot of the "mob."

Update: You're all fucking crazy. Seriously, click on that link and read something that a conservative humorist like P.J. O'Rourke couldn't have come up with in his wildest dreams.

Good news for you Wisconsin folks

Your leftist douchetard of a governor won't be seeking reelection, be sure to keep an eye on the Eggman's place for more news.  I'll be kind of curious to see if the GOP up there can take advantage of this, or what you WI people think.
