Health Care Reform, Taxes on Chips, Bankers Salaries, Oh My!

May 14, 2009

socialism illustrated

ALERT!–ALL SATIRE HAS BEEN PUSHED ASIDE FOR THIS POST.

-That’s right, I have decided that I simply cannot make light of the ongoing barrage of socialistic filth that is coming down from Mount Olympus, er… Washington D.C.  Today I heard a report on how Congress is considering taxing soft drinks, sugary foods and chips.  Which by the way, discriminates against fat people–didn’t I do a post about this at one time…

(See https://mklasing.wordpress.com/2007/12/17/instead-of-taxing-babies-how-about-taxing-caprisun/)

Then I heard a report about how Congress wants to regulate how bankers get paid–even with banks that did not take any bailout money.  Then I hear about how Nancy Pelosi has guaranteed a health care reform bill by August.

After my head exploded and I picked up the pieces of my severed skull and taped it back together I realized something that I have been denying for the past 7 months.  I am really really mad.  Not just a little mad–but REALLY mad.

Since the election I have tried to be understanding and humble about the outcome.  I know that although 58 million people did not vote for Barack Obama, 60 million did and those 60 million are entitled to their reasons and feelings and this is a free country and blah, blah, blah, blah.

However, numerous people have told me recently that they voted for Mr. Obama because they “were afraid that McCain was just another Bush,” or “I had no idea he would take us this far to the left,” or “we just needed a change,” or “I gave the Republicans 8 years and they didn’t take care of things.”  And now I’m just mad.

I’m mad at the voters–I’m mad at you if you voted for Barack Obama.  I know it seems like sour grapes and all that–but here is a newsflash for you liberals–it is not about ME winning or ME getting my way in the election.  It is about what is best for our Country.  It’s about not allowing all of our freedoms and liberties to be sucked into the socialistic vaccum cleaner of the Democratic Party.

So I’m Mad at each person who voted for Mr. Obama.  And as the Country slides further into socialism YOU are to blame.  When my daughter is 80 and cannot get a hip replacement without a 6 month wait-YOU are to blame.  When unemployment hits 20% under the thumb of over taxation and regulation, YOU are to blame.  When our military can no longer defend our Nation because of the dismantling of our post 9/11 defenses put in place by the Bush administration-YOU are to blame.  When we slip from lone Superpower to being dependent on the good graces of Europe, China and Russia-YOU are to blame.

So today I’m mad–I’ll get over it I suppose.  I don’t mean any offense to any liberals out there (and I know how easy you take offense–at least I didn’t post a giant picture of a nativity scene) or any friends who voted for Obama.  After all, I’m confident you will rectify this situation in 2012–I just hope it won’t be too late.

Governor Rod Blagojevich Actions Not His Fault

December 10, 2008

Chicago-Well we finally have something other than the economy to discuss.  Rod Blagojevich.  For months now the FBi has been suspicious of this man because how many men at his age still have this much hair?

As Jon Stewart said last night on “The Daily Show”–what is written under there that he doesn’t want us to see?  Well, I for one think that we are all being a little too hard on Mr. Blagosdfkwe=whatever.  Although–he is no stranger to corruption discussions.  In 2005 he was investigated as part of a scheme to steer pension plans from the State to his large campaign contributors.  But as he said then–he knew nothing about that.

Then, of course there were those silly rumors that he was actually gay.  But that is just plain ridiculous.

The reality is, the Governor was not breaking the law.  Sure he is being charged with tons of crimes including bribery and corruption, but he is right that the “bleeping” Senate office left vacant President-Elect Obama is a “bleeping” important office and it shouldn’t be simply given away for “bleeping” free.  After all–the economy is in the tank and how can Illinois afford to have a Governor that cannot afford to feed his own family.  I mean look at the tiny house he lives in:

Pathetic.  Why I would rather sleep in a cardboard box–at least I would have my dignity.  Plus his salary is a little over a paltry $177K per year–not even “rich” under Obama’s standards.  It is such a shame–with the economy hurting and organized crime needing their payoffs in Chicago, even Oprah is stressed and laying on the weight again.

So are we to condemn this man–this friend of our new President, for a couple of poor decisions related to finances?

I say “No”–let’s look instead at the real problem.  Of course, there is the underlying issue of the “failed policies of the Bush administration” that is the cause of our financial woes (not the mortgage crises or unions or socialist policies of the left)–But the real problem–the root of all of our current angst and anxiety-

The root of all evil and the example of all things wrong with our society:

Yes, the BCS–it is clear that if we had a playoff system, or if UT was rightfully playing for the National Championship, then we would not have Governors of States like Illinois making such irrational decisions.  Clearly, this disruption in the natural order of things has caused poor Blogaofeviehsasdfasdthek  to not think clearly and to say things he must not mean.

So join with me in anticipating the Democrat response–blame Bush (obviously)–but let’s blame the real culprits–after all we do not live in a society where personal responsibility means anything–so in anticipating the need for a scapegoat–I offer the BCS…and of course, the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Straight Talk About The Straight Ticket

November 18, 2008

 

Thank you Democrat straight ticket voters.  Thanks for all you have done to help our society.  I understand you wanted “change” and you were willing to wear Go Obama stickers and chant and scream and faint whenever HE spoke—but in the process you forgot one little thing—your own laziness.

I’m sorry up front–I know accusing people of negative things is so out and calling people out on their choices is so last year–but in communities all over the Country where people yanked the straight ticket they ended up voting for many opportunists like the jolly man pictured above. 

In so doing, many excellent district clerks, judges, tax assessors, school board members, mayors, sheriffs and other local republican politicians that were doing a great job for their communities were swept away by the tsunami of straight ticket votes.

Why vote straight ticket?  Laziness.  Very few people vote straight ticket because they have examined each candidate in each race and decided to vote all Republican or all Democrat.  I am about as right-wing as I can be and even I, yes I voted race by race.  If I did not know either candidate, I left it blank, and in 2 instances I actually voted for (gasp) a democrat! 

I’ll never tell which ones–but trust me, I did.

So you don’t think there is any harm in straight ticket voting–the lever for the lazy?  Take the local case of Devon Anderson.

Devon is the current Criminal District Court Judge for the 177th Judicial District Court in Harris County, Texas (Houston for those of you in other states).  Devon was a long-time prosecutor and is a person untouchable integrity.  She has been an amazing Judge and has done wonderful things for our community.  I know of almost no lawyers from the DEFENSE BAR that dislike her.  She is fair, honest and tries her best to do the right thing in every case.  But, she was up this last term.  She was beat in a wave of straight ticket voting by Kevin Fine:

260xstory
Mr. Fine said he’ll draw from his experiences as a cocaine addict who has been clean and sober for 10 years when presiding over felony cases.  “Every time I was coming down, I felt like the devil was reaching into my soul, stealing my heart,” he said of his days spent with drugs.  See Full Article.
As a side note–Judge Anderson is one of 4 judges who preside over the County’s Drug Courts.  Mr. Fine states, “I ran,” Fine said, “because I felt like I could help more people as a judge than I could one at a time as clients.”  (uh, no you didn’t—the local Dem party had a big meeting and asked for volunteers to run for every bench and you were one of many who said “sure”)
That is sooooooo great!  We want Judges in our Criminal System to “help people” because that is their role–oh no, wait, being an activist and community worker is actually not the goal or the job of a Judge–they are to rule on the law impartially.  Whoops–guess he didn’t know that.
There are so many more examples of this all over our Nation–but hey, maybe this is the “change” people were looking for.  Well congratulations lazy voters–you will get exactly what you asked for–major, heart wrenching, society altering “change.”
After all, straight ticket voting got us change before–remember 1976-1980?  Obama does:
080401-obama-gas-line21
Yea!  Gas lines, hostages, stagflation, high borrowing rates, unemployment—and former drug addicts presiding as Judges in a felony Drug Court–now that is some “change” we need.
Thanks again straight voters–your unintended brilliance is simply amazing.

Post Election Happiness!

November 5, 2008

“It only takes a spark, to get a fire going….and soon all those around can warm up to its glowing…”

Oh, sorry, for a second there I got caught up in my post-election happiness.  I mean now, that we will all finally have peace, love, happiness, health care, a home, college eduction and free food, how can I not be overjoyed!  The US has spoken.  66 million people have decided they would rather have the Government take care of their needs than take care of them on their own.  66 million people have decided that Socialism may be better than Capitalism.  66 million people have decided that “change” is good regardless of what it is or its cost.  So Bravo America!  You have chosen…time will tell if you have chosen wisely.

So why in the world is this titled “Post-Election Happiness?”  I mean how can I be happy, many wonderful, hard working and excellent Judges in my home town were defeated simply because they were Republicans. 

Devon Anderson–an excellent no-nonsense law and order Judge-defeated.

Caprice Cosper–a caring Judge who is not afraid to put bad guys away when they deserve it-defeated.

Levi Benton–one of the few judges I have ever been before who reads and studies the law and does all he can to make the right decision every time-defeated.

Ken Wise-a judge who is smart, knows the law, and is sensitive to the needs of all litigants in the Courtroom, and who is fair-minded-defeated

Sherolyn Wood-a judge since 1982 who has ruled on more cases than most judges in the Country-honest about her feelings on a case, no-nonsense attitude and hard working-defeated

and the list goes on…

Not to mention that numerous great Represenatives and Senators like Elizabeth Dole-defeated.  And of course, our last hope for conservative idealisms for the next 4 years, John McCain-defeated.

So how can I be happy about the election?

Because in one small corner of the world–there was a resounding victory for our most precious commodity next to children—mothers.

Yes, that’s right–there was a victory yesterday for moms.  Well, maybe not the traditional kind of soccer mom that you are thinking of–and well, maybe not the clean your face, prepare your dinner, wash your clothes handle a career at the same time kind of mom you have.

But nevertheless, this victory tells all moms, especially pregnant moms and moms caring for little ones that they will not be confined to the societal cages of yesteryear.  They will be able to stretch their limbs, turn around and make their voices heard.

Why?  Because the wonderfully intelligent voters of California, who voted on the one hand to elect a gay marriage-supporting President and on the other voted for a Constitutional ban on gay marriage in their own State–they have voted “YES” to Proposition 2.

What is that you ask?  It is a new law that creates criminal liability for anyone who wrongfully confines egg-laying chickens or pregnant pigs.  This new law will make it mandatory that cages for such wonderful little mothers be big enough so that the animal, err mom I mean, can “lie down, stand up, fully extend their limbs and turn around freely.”

So, no more of this horrible treatment.  Now when these moms have their babies taken from them soon after they are laid (or is it lain–I hate this verb), it won’t be from some nasty crowded cage like this one.  And the moms will be able to turn around and talk to their other chicken mom friends about the evils of the baby-sale of their children.

And don’t forget the pigs.

No more of this either.  Just look at them–what if one of them has restless leg syndrome and can’t stretch out–oh the humanity or piganity or whatever.  I’m just glad the mom’s took home this trophy.

Net result-higher priced bacon and eggs-but isn’t it worth it?  for the moms?

So don’t fret–not everything was lost yesterday–at least we took home this one.

Spreading The Wealth-Because You Earned It

October 24, 2008

Ever since Joe the Plumber stepped into a Democratic-controlled media so they could take him apart him for his own personal mishaps in life to divert attention away from the Marxist comment of Senator Obama–I have been more and more startled to hear people lining up to vote for this man.  A man who believes that it is okay to take money away from those who have earned it and give it to those who have not.

“Spreading the Wealth” is not a new concept–why Karl Marx had this idea years ago.  You have already heard some of his words in different contexts.

For example, Obama would like to take the “windfall profits” of Exxon and Shell and Chevron because he deems those profits to be too large.  Interestingly, Karl Marx had a theory called “surplus value.”  That is the difference in what a wage earner makes at a company and the value of the work actually performed (in other words, the profits made by the company).  He believed that “surplus” belonged to the worker.

Marx believed that capitalism is the root of social class warfare and unfair distinction–therefore, only a system where the wealth of the whole is redistributed more evenly to that same whole, can we finally get rid of class elitism and envy.

In other words, get rid of wealth and we will all suffer the same.  

Sounds awesome!

So for those of you that have worked for years, decades even to finally reach that point in life where you make a comfortable living and can afford a few vacations, nice bottles of wine and new cars, it is time that all that hard work be punished.

Time to beat the drive and work ethic out of you by having the Government take your money and more “fairly” distribute it where it is really needed.

Here are some other famous quotes from the author of every idea Obama has for our Country:

1.  On Religion:  “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”

2.  On Judiasm:  “What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, selfishness. What is the secular cult of the Jew? Haggling. What is his secular god? Money. Well then, an emancipation from haggling and money, from practical, real Judaism would be the self emancipation of our age.

3.  On Democracy:  “Democracy is the road to socialism.”

4.  On Redistribution:  “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”

5.  On Labor’s Value:  “We should not say that one man’s hour is worth another man’s hour, but rather that one man during an hour is worth just as much as another man during an hour.”

6.  On Peace:  “The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.”

Ahhh, and the 6th one is the most scary.  See if you oppose the movement to more plainly “socialize” our Nation, then you will be the root cause of why there is not peace in our lives.  Does the media’s attempt to demonize Joe the Plumber and make fun of Sarah Palin’s wardrobe sound like this? 

On its face, redistribution of wealth sounds great—to those who have no wealth to begin with.  The reality is that socialist ideas have shown that what really happens is the lower class expands to suck up the  middle class leaving rich and poor and nothing in between.

Getting something free–is not always a good thing.  I would compare Obama’s socialist policies to this:

Free is not always better.

Republicans for Obama? I Don’t Hardly Think So.

October 14, 2008

Seriously?  This is absolutely laughable.  The media has already elected Obama as you know.  Tom Brokaw gave an interview two days ago where he said that McCain’s campaign was disorganized and in disarray.  Wouldn’t he hope that were true?

The media along with the Obama camp have really worked hard to elect the most liberal and socialist driven man to the highest office of our Country that has ever run for the job (excluding some individuals who have run under the American Communist party).

As soon as McCain starts to gain ground in the polls, the media says he is finished.  Obama has accused McCain of being Bush #3, which is an outright lie and has joked about the attacks on his credibility associating with terrorists and radical leftists.  And now….as the election draws near, we are to believe that there are actual Republicans who are willing to wear this button.

I’m sorry–I cry foul here.

What is a Republican?

A person who believes in the Republic form of government–the form where the supreme power rests with the people, not the government.  Anyone who actually believes these principles would not vote for Obama-who clearly believes that the government should exercise ultimate authority over every aspect of our lives.

So stop fooling us–we are not idiots.  No REAL republican wears this pin–it is meant to freak us out.

But wait…My crack team of investigators begs to differ–Believe it or not, we have found other similar organizations–so maybe I’m wrong about this.  Here they are:

1.  Christians For The Devil

2.  Mets Fans For The Yankees

3.  Wine Lovers For Mad Dog 20/20

4.  Redskins For The Cowboys

5.  Trial Lawyers for Big Corporations

6.  Dogs for Cats

7.  Jews for Muslims

8.  Ahmadinejad For Gays

9.  Sharks for Vegetables

10.  Hindus For Steak

So, I guess maybe it is possible that these people exist.

My bad.
