Mike Lupica wins first Anus of the Month Award!

Me, I’m a commentator on news and current social events. I have my opinions, which–naturally–I believe are right. After all, what kind of an idiot holds opinions he or she knows to be wrong?

The difference between a commentator and a “journalist” is that the former is allowed to editorialize while the latter should report simply the facts, leaving out every sense of bias. After reading an article this morning that is supposed to be news–at least it falls under the categories News>>Politics–I have my nominee for fiery canine anus of the month–Mr. Mike Lupica.

The Daily News (http://nydailynews.com) has an article today by Mr. Lupica entitled: President Obama is the real target of health care protesters, not policy

It appears Mr. Lupica must have failed his classes on ethics in journalism, reporting without bias, and the difference between opinion and fact. Here are some of the outrageously bias statements considered “news” instead of Op/Ed:

[T]he debate about health care has turned into a sideshow and in some cases even more of a freak show than Glenn Beck’s.

This bit of unbias reporting comes in the second paragraph. He goes on to say:

 So this [Obama's visit to Montana] wasn’t an occasion when people with legitimate concerns and legitimate points to make were overwhelmed by the wing nuts and screamers who take their marching orders from right-wing radio and television and the Internet.

Those idiots come to these town hall meetings more to be seen than heard, and think creating chaos makes them great Americans.

A short while later, Lupica takes a lesson from Genine Garofalo when he tries to paint opponents of socialized medicine as a bunch of racists with this subtle innuendo:

The most violent opposition isn’t directed at his ideas about health care reform. It is directed at him. It is about him. They couldn’t make enough of a majority to beat the Harvard-educated black guy out of the White House, so they will beat him on an issue where they see him as being most vulnerable.

Remember how Genine told us the tea parties were all about “a black man in the White House?”

To finish page 1 or his 2 page report, Lupica says:

And by the way, if Sarah Palin is involved – Palin as uninformed as ever about these so-called “death panels” – the debate just got dumber, if that’s possible. No kidding. If foreign policy was a brain-buster for Palin, something as truly complex as health care will make her feel as dizzy as if she just rolled down a hill.

Isn’t that cute?

If you want to read the rest of his ridiculous “reporting, you can see the whole article here.

I have no problem with his opinions or with the NY Daily News including them in their rag. My issue comes with this drivel being posted as news instead of opinion. For that, Mike Lupica wins our first ever, Anus of the Month award.

Here you go, Mike:

Obama’s Anti-democracy

Posted by Brutus | Posted in Conservative Corner | Posted on 14-08-2009

A great man once said, “A democracy is where 51% of the people tyrannize the other 49%.”

It appears Obama has produced some of the “change” he promised by taking us from a republic to an anti-democracy. That’s where any vocal minority can tyrannize any majority–silent or not. Take for example the issue at the forefront of most minds today, health care. 53% of Americans now oppose it, yet in our anti-democracy, 42% (which is a dwindling number) can drive the President and Congress to force their will on everyone else.

  • Chrysler Bailouts
  • Stimulus
  • Pork spending
  • Cap and Trade

It doesn’t matter that the majority of Americans oppose almost everything coming out of Washington these days. They continue on as if we don’t exist. It is as if they are our bosses, making decisions for the corporation and we must go along with them because we are simply the employees. But as we all know, it was never meant to be this way. They work for us. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Barney Frank, every single one of them is our employee. We can fire them for a list of reasons including: ineptitude, embezzling from our children, failure to do their work (part of which includes reading the laws they pass), and gross insubordination.

But here is the scary question. Since it is apparent Obama does not care what the majority says, what will he do in 2012 when 66% of Americans vote for his opponent? Will Obama find a way to ignore the majority one last time and stay in office? I don’t know. All I can say is it looks like anything’s possible in this anti-democracy.

Congressman Griffith: “We’re past [the Constitution]“

When asked where the Constitution gives the federal government power to create a health care bill, Alabama Congressman Parker Griffith replied, “We’re past that; that’s like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube.”

Yes, indeed. Congress is “past” the Constitution. That great document is now little more than lip service toward freedom. Like in the days of old King George leading up to the revolution, our laws are no longer based upon the foundation created by the blood and sweat of 18th Century martyrs, but rather–they are created by whim and fiat.

The self-righteous powerbrokers in DC no longer believe that man is endowed with certain inalienable rights by their Creator. Instead, they mistakenly believe that human rights come from them. We have no rights or freedoms, but what the federal leviathan says we have. Our politicians have set themselves up as gods to reign over us. They have forgotten that they work for US. The sad part is, we–as a people–have also forgotten that. We have our little tea parties and town halls and think we are being brave. But we still allow them to dictate unconstitutional laws. And we still cower in fear at the threat of the IRS, DHS, and secret Obama police.

If we had any nerve at all, we would put the toothpaste back in the tube by kicking every single one of them out of office. Your guy, my guy, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Kick them all out and show them that no one is above the Constitution. Because even the “good” guys are up there making unconstitutional backroom deals, believing “compromise” is the best way to govern. But there are no compromises of law. Something is either legal or illegal. There is no middle ground. The same holds true with constitutionality. It is either expressly stated or it is not. Their perversion of our great charter does not legitimize it, any more than adopting a child had out of wedlock changes the fact the kid was born to an unwed mother.

So, as a reminder for those demons in DC, here are the only places you can make laws…and in case you don’t have time to read this (like every other bit of legislation you pass), health care is not listed here:

Article I Section 8 of the US Constitution

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

Russians seek advice on how to be more socialist-NewsBusted

Russians here to ask Obama how to be more socialist. LOL


Obama Tanking

Like the ratings of those media outlets in the tank for Comrade Obama, Dear Leader’s numbers are also tanking.

According to Rasmussen Reports:

  • 51% of Americans are more afraid of government health care than insurance companies
  • 53% of Americans oppose Obama’s plans for socialized medicine (only 42% approve)
  • President Obama has a -5 approval rating (36% strongly disapprove while 31% strongly approve) (Poll data)
  • Obama has tied his lowest approval rating (48%)–a long way down from his 65% on Jan 20,2009 (Poll data)

As Obama and his neosocialist sycophants like Pelosi and Reid continue to “change” America, I believe they will find even the majority of Americans who voted for him did not have socialism in mind when they cast that ballot. One thing’s for certain–some of the people who voted for him have already come to their senses.

Obama’s Communist Revolution–Now Playing Everywhere!

Posted by Brutus | Posted in health care | Posted on 10-08-2009

Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer have an op-ed piece in USA Today in which they claim “Americans have been waiting for nearly a century for quality, affordable health care.” What about the 136 years before the progressives (a form of American socialists) presented it in 1912?

There are reasons there were no socialized medicine bills introduced prior to 1912. The main reason is because the very idea is anathema to the Constitution.

In 1912, socialists and communist forces were swelling in the United States, organizing labor unions and pushing the focus of mainstream politics far to the left. While some open socialists ran on the ballots for various state and federal positions, they still did not make a dent in the System. As such, most leftists knew the only way to destroy the Constitution and work their socialist utopia would be by destroying the Constitution from within. The idea was to get into the main body politic like a cancer and eat away at the fundamental rights until Lady Liberty was little more than a skeleton with a thin skin over her bones. It did not matter if they went in as republicans, democrats, or bull-moose. The idea was to shape the dialogue and, in so shaping, change our form of government.

Health care was and remains one of those socialist ideas intended to eat away at the Constitution so the leftists can inflict their wretched ideology on everyone at the same time. Of course, just like in Stalin’s Russia and Mao’s China, the good things–housing, real health care, vehicles, etc.–are reserved solely for the political class. The average American–which is what they dream every non-politician will be–receives rationed heath care, forced abortions, forced euthanasia, and whatever scraps from their political masters’ tables.

Later in their piece, Pelosi and Hoyer say,

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.

The interesting thing about this quote is all the energy Nancy Pelosi and her leftist buddies in government and media have expended to do just that: drown out the opposition.

Pelosi has said it is an “astro turf” movement instead of grass roots, hoping that would silence people. She has accused ordinary Americans of being too well dressed to protest. She has claimed ordinary Americans are actually the paid hands of an insurance group trying to quash the socializing of America. And, of course, she likened all ordinary Americans to nazis, trying to silence them or scare them from showing up by painting John and Jane Doe as two swastika carrying, jackbooted thugs there to beat up a politician.

Obama has tried to drown out opposition by threatening people with having their names sent to flag@whitehouse.gov if they dare speak, email, or blog against his brand of socialized medicine.

Other neosocialist politicians, aided by left wing groups and the mainstream media, paint ordinary Americans as mobsters and rioters for exercising their first amendment right to redress government of grievances.

These politicians know what they are doing. They are working feverishly to drown out all opposition to their revolutionary plans, because this is the War. This is the communist revolution in America. Obama is the Marxist version of King Arthur. He is the Socialist Savior, here to draw the sword from the stone and slay all non-socialists.

Opposition is the most patriotic and American thing one can do today. There is no middle ground. Silence is nothing more than a head nod to the neosocialists like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barney Frank. The time is now for Americans to choose. Whom will you serve? Liberty or Socialist Slave-masters in DC? The communists have started the revolution. Choose your side.

Some fishy truth about Obamaland’s Ministry of Health

Posted by Brutus | Posted in health care | Posted on 08-08-2009

0

My assertion has been that if Barack Obama and his band of neosocialist followers want a European style socialism, they should move to France, rather than trying to enslave all Americans under that system. It appears, I have an answer on why they don’t move. France is now trying to be more like America with an American-style health care system.

The Wall Street Journal reported

In recent months, France imposed American-style “co-pays” on patients to try to throttle back prescription-drug costs and forced state hospitals to crack down on expenses. “A hospital doesn’t need to be money-losing to provide good-quality treatment,” President Nicolas Sarkozy thundered in a recent speech to doctors.

So, now the new question is, why would Obama and his haughty backup singers want to give us a system that is demonstrably failing?

I believe the answer is simple. I said it before. I repeat it now. This has nothing to do with health. If Congress cared about your health, they would put themselves under the same plan. This has always been and will always be about greater government control of each person’s life. We see by the way Congress acts, they do not believe laws pertain to them. They take their bribes, circumvent the Constitution, pollute/use more energy than 98% of Americans. This is one more case where they will be above the laws intended to crush the will of the people.

When the government controls health care, it will be able to successfully legislate every aspect of our lives. Take for example the abuse of the Interstate Commerce Clause. After perverting it, Congress discovered it had the power to regulate how much wheat a farmer can grow for his personal consumption. If they pass this health care, they will be able to decide how many children you have. The czar of Obamaland’s Ministry of Health can say, “Besides adding to your carbon footprint, having children costs the government a lot of money. You have had two children already. We’re afraid we must perform an abortion so that other women with less children can have another. It’s only fair.” On top of that, when government controls all health care, they can and will use the ”cost-cutting” argument as they reach into other non-related things. For example, by banning Twinkies from store shelves (or any food, drink or drug from a manufacturer who does not give a large enough bribe), Congress is saving taxpayers money by preventing the overweight people from getting heavier and having heart attacks. See how much they love us? Of course, their congressional closets will be jam packed with Twinkies, Hoho’s, Suzy-Q’s, chicken fried in trans fat, cigarettes, cigars, dip, snuff, beer, bourbon, life-saving meds, and a bunch more. We can’t expect the laws to apply to them. They are there protecting us from ourselves and (insert evil corporation name or industry here). Part of defending us from our desires means they must take every measure necessary. As for those things in the closet, you needn’t even look at them or give them a second thought… they are there for research purposes only.

Nazis nazis everywhere and not a boot to goosestep

Left wing lunatics and the noesocialists comprising the democrat party never fail to amaze me.

Just the other day, Nancy Pelosi the Czar of the House (that’s what the position is called now, right?) slandered everyone opposing Obama’s socialized health (er–now it’s insurance) plan. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2009/08/05/pelosi_town_hall_protesters_are_carrying_swastikas.html

So, imagine my surprise when I went over to Michelle Malkin’s blog and saw the democrats are complaining that Rush Limbaugh called them nazis.

One her website is a letter which, in part, states:

At a time when families are looking for solutions to rebuild the economy and make health care more affordable, Rush Limbaugh is attempting to sidetrack the important debate through his use of symbols that are synonymous with murder, intolerance and genocide.

So, let me get this straight. If democrats call someone a nazi, it is good. If a conservative calls someone a nazi it is evil. That takes too long to say. I’ll stick with: Democrats are self-righteous hypocrites. Yep, much easier to say and much truer as it covers a multitude of ther sins–so to speak. For example: When 3 people shout at bush or 1 person throws a pie at Ann Coulter, that’s grass roots opposition. When 8,000 protest taxes, that’s a bunch of teabagging redneck racists afraid of a black man in the White House. When Michael Moore accuses Bush of blowing up the WTC, that’s dissent–which is the highest form of patriotism (as long as it’s a dimwitocrat doing it). When someone posts a video of Obama saying he wants a single-payer health care (socialized medicine), that’s a wicked lie spread by insurance companies…even though they never addressed how much the insurance companies paid Obama to say those things.

Yeah, I’ll stick with self-righteous hypocrites.

Or maybe go for something shorter like “Morons.”

In the America I grew up in . . .

In the America I grew up in, only two types of people had to fear the government: criminals and the nut jobs trying to overthrow the Constitution and replace it with some form of dictatorship.

Now, the nut jobs are the government.

As I looked over my logs, I noticed RiverGlass Inc has stepped up its monitoring of yours truly. Last month, the company, which collects information for the government, visited about 12 times a day (363 visits). This month, they are averaging about the same so far.

On top of that, DHS has already visited my site a couple of times. The question is: why? Why are these people monitoring me? I have not and do not advocate the toppling of our government. I do not support terrorism. I am a vehement defender of the Constitution and human and civil rights. So, what are my crimes?

Before Janet Napolitano’s ridiculous memo found a home in our government, these people never visited. This leads me to believe my crimes must be “daring to advocate Constitutional governance.” Perhaps the fact I believe socialism is a ridiculous form of government is viewed as a threat to the administration. Or maybe it is the fact that I love freedom and believe what Madison and Jefferson bequeathed to us is worth keeping. I don’t know.

I’m curious who else they are following. Are they only following lovers of the Constitution now? Or are they equally targeting and monitoring small-time lefties as well?

All I can say with certainty is I long for the good ol’ days when patriots were portrayed as the men in white hats and the criminals in the government, their corrupt allies, and the “Machine” behind them were the evil-doers. Now, it appears the opposite is true. If you love your country, you are a wicked human. Only when you swear allegiance to a man and his perverted ideas can you be considered “good.”

Something is wrong, seriously wrong here.
