PC PLAN

Quote From: ritehere

The people wanting to transform our government will try to make the argument about anything, other than the true issue. That's why they are saying that the word "socialism" is "secret shorthand" for the "N" word. If they can convince somebody is about racism, then that somebody will never see clearly that their freedoms are being stolen in the false guise of an altruistic government run health "insurance" program that is nothing but more taxation in return for mediocre medical service to all.

That's why we are not concerned protesters, we are "racists, teabaggers, angry mobs, etc." I predict that they will continue to come up with colorful names trying to distract us.

I think the whole CIA interrogations being brought up again is another distraction. It appears that Eric Holder is acting on his own bringing this up again, against Obama's wishes. I guarantee you, Holder wouldn't be wasting his time if the president hadn't given him orders to bring it up. It is a hot-button issue that Obama uses for smokescreen, and he is using it now while he's taking a break from public view to get the media talking aobut something other than healthcare.

Meanwhile, there's big bucks going into a media blitz to sell it to us, again, when he comes back. It might be called something new this time, like a "co-op" but I'm sure it will be the same vague set of confusing terminology.

Political correctness gave birth to the race card, the race card was not born to help , it was born to silences to bring questionable doubt about a person character when it lays at that person feet. The race card gave us a new double standard when we should of been working at getting rid of all double standards.

 

The race card was not born to balance but to insight and cause more racial harm when it is used without thought and to gain power over another in a disagreement.

 

If you want ppl to stop using socialism next to Obama name make it racial, throw the card, If it silences a few its done its job if it gives ppl pause before they use the word then its done its job. If its insights blacks and they look at the word in a new meaning its done its job.

Castro is comming out in Obamas defence saying that race is a factor in why ppl of this country is against something that is so good for it.      If Castro thinks NHC is good for this country Welll I think its a clear sign we need to run away from it.

 

Supporters against the NHC where blamed for breaking windows at a DEMs politial building  and it turns out it was Lib. nuts that broke the windows trying to make ppl mad at the ppl against NHC so ppl will call them nuts and viloent when its was Lib crazies do all the damage.

Bingo!

Quote From: kustomlady

This is the rhetoric Obama consistantly used in order to defeat other Democrats running for the nomination last year, and so it appears that the president has infact changed his mind of healthcare reform...

 

"Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) has been one of Obama's staunchest critics on this issue. He says the president opposed meaningful Republican legislation while he still a member of the Senate.
"I want Americans to be clear that I have introduced major healthcare reform every year I've been in the Senate. Barack Obama did not introduce any that I'm aware of. He voted against Republican reforms that would have made it less expensive and more accessible for individuals to have their own insurance if they didn't get it at work," DeMint points out. "He's done everything he can to maintain the status quo so that he could call for government intervention -- and we need to expose that to the American people."
 
DeMint says healthcare overhaul is a critical battle for Americans and there is no need to rush to pass such important legislation. He recently released his new book Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America's Slide into Socialism.

In past administrations some Democrats have blocked every common sense true insurance reform move made by moderates and Republicans. They have remained low-key and patient up until this administration. They're fighting desperately for this healthcare takeover because they know once this key part of the economy is under their control, the USA is forever changed into a socialist state.

Just opening the competitive field by allowing patients to shop for coverage in other states would cause improvements. Tort (sp) reform and privatizing entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare should be what we are discussing.

When you understand why the far left does not want these sorts of reforms, their actions become clear. They WANT a socialist system with a huge bureacratic central government. At a time when Germany and Russia are becoming more capitalist, the USA is in danger of losing our free capitalist republic.

 

Bill Mahr made a comment on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien while he was deriding O'Reilly for calling him a pinhead. He said the USA needs a third party- the Progressive Party. This could be the rumours I've heard of a third major party being born. I had thought it would be a third party of constitutional conservatives, but I may have been mistaken.

I hope the secular DO form their own party. It will get them out of the shadows of both the Republican and Democrat parties. They've polluted the traditional values of both parties for far too long. If they "came out" we would all know who they are, and what they really stand for.

The funny thing, I think, about the "progressives" is the way they portray themselves. They're whole attitude is that government should provide everything and make all of our decisions for us, for our own good. This is repressive, not progressive.

And that is exactly the way they act too. Take for example the way the true grassroots protests have been ridiculed and labled by the so-called "progressives" in power. Their latest retalliation? To pay some of their organized communities to show up at townhall meetings to out shout us. The SIEU goons and busloads of ACORN members will not and cannot be as passionate about their cause as the rest of us. And if they attend to the questions and the obvious evasions of the questions, they may learn something, such as how they are being used and manipulated by the unscrupulous.

The repressive progressives

Quote From: getrealtime

I believe that if we go to NHC there will be limits to amount of children you are allowed to have, it will not happen right away but 5 10 years it will. but it will extend to all not just the poor. all you have to do is look at the folks that Obama has around him, like Sunstien and Holdren, E. Emmanual. Read their therories and you will see they are truely not the poor mans friend . These ppl are not the true Libs of days past, they are elitist in Lib cloths using the greed of the poor telling them that they are entitled so they stand at the door of the Government demanding and distorying this country one entitltement at a time.

Look these ppl up that are around Obama, they talk about and therorize about placing sterilizations cems. in the drinking water and using forced abortion as control cost.

 

We do not want the government in our lifes. NO Ins company can force what the governement can. Privite Ins companies can not make laws demanding anything from us, The Government can. If we don't like our Privite Ins company we can walk away  and choose from many other, Under a Government HC there is no where to go and thats when we are going to be forced to do as the governments says. i see us being finded for being fat or a smoker or drinker or if you have highblood presure, cancer ect. Some will say they will not pay, I say the government will get their monies if its taking it right out of your bank account like only they have the power to do now. Or out of your refund if you get one. The Government will get what they demand is theirs to get.

Yes, the characters of the czars and what sort of advice they might be giving the president are coming out. How about the new "diversity of the FCC" czar? He was not elected, not vetted by the FBI, just like the ex-con thug Van Jones who is the "green jobs czar." Under him, a systematic dismantling of our right to free speech may begin soon. His first steps will likely be to shut down talk radio broadcasts and FOX news.

This guy thinks Hugo Chavez is some kind of hero.

They are doing exactly that- confusing the issues by making it about anything but what they are really up to.

That was the Democratic office here in Denver. The woman that heads the office didn't even think about her words, just immediately said that it MUST have been caused by some right-wing extremist. Indoctrination of false ideas, or her own collusion in a misguided manipulation of public viewpoint? Thank God the police are not in their pockets!

If she is innocent, I can only hope that she has the personal decency to feel ashamed of herself when it came out that the only suspect, who is in custody, is a LEFT-WING extremist known to have been paid by the Democrats in the past for activist activities. Talk about a wake-up call for her!

To do damage to their own building and try to make it look like the opposition: can you smell the desperation? The merits of the Obama takeover just don't stand the test of public scrutiny.

An American president getting sympathy from Castro!

Kind of sheds light on the whole Summit of the America's thing when Chavez gave Obama that book, doesn't it?

And how about Brazil getting money to drill offshore, helping George Soros line his pockets some more? What about doing some off-shore drilling here and putting some people back to work? What else has been promised away?

I'm waiting to see how our leaders deal with Kadafi's tent pitching plans in New Jersey. Will he be bowed to and warmly embraced?

A rousing sentiment?

In the wake of Ted Kennedy's very recent passing, there's talk of using the event to rally support for the flawed healthcare bills before congress. "Pass it for the Gipper, he would have wanted it!" and similar such nonsense.

First of all, "The Gipper" was President Ronald Reagan. Secondly, I think the sentiment is a misguided and desperate attempt to gain support for a bill that should never see the light of day.

What do you all think?

Why call them Czars???? There are so many things that could of fit these titles so why Czars? This Admin. had slammed us with all kinds of questionable actions and characters yet not even a 10th of it is questioned. Obama is thriving on that double standarded that no Pres. female would of got away with.

Obama surrounds himself with questionable characters yet it is looked over,  it would be like if Bush surrounded himself with religious radicial leaders and called them Deacons and advisors to the Pres. NO way would he be allowed to get away with it.

 

obama said judge him by who he surrounds himself with and the ppl he has around him have ( ist ) connected to the end of who they are. its like he calling himself out but knowing no one will challenge him about it.

T. Kennedy to me is a man that survived by his last name by ppl of that generation. The ppl of the Kennedy generation are the age in which this HC bill will hurt the most, I don't see them changing their minds  in sentiment of the least loved Kennedy and hurting themself by doing so. Remember they are the children of the 60's that turned their backs on the movement and did what was best for them and went out and got JOBs made lots of monies and became what they had so much fun protesting.
