Simple Common Sense

Aug 5, 2009 by

The silent majority (yes you – you know you are “republican operatives paid by the insurance companies”) are putting down their remotes, getting up off their couches and using Obama’s own Saul Alinsky and ACORN tactics against the Progressive Socialist Democratic Party, and the other side is stunned?

Here is the most common sense statement I have heard about why the government should get out of our doctor’s examination room and only do the jobs the Constitution provides for the federal government:

I look at this health care plan.  I see nothing that is about health or about care.  What I see is a bureaucratic nightmare Senator.  Medicaid is broke. Medicare is broke.  Social Security is broke.  And you want us to believe that a government that can’t even run a Cash For Clunkers program is going to run 1/7 of our US economy.  No Sir! No.

    “republican operatives paid by the insurance companies”

    DT… I find the above phrase very interesting, since it is the insurance companies that have apparently “cut a deal” with the administration. Another thing I find interesting is that, as I understand it, the Canadian system started out as a mostly private system with a public option… and look where it is today. Two questions keep coming to my mind:

    1. Why do people think that this public option is going to play out any differently than in Canada?
    2. Why are the insurance companies going along with this when it is going to eventually put them out of the health insurance business?

    On the first question, I know, as do a lot of your readers, that this will be just pure market economics in how this will play out. One doesn’t introduce an entity into a market like government, with its ability to print money at will and no requirement to turn a profit, and expect that a private company with its need to turn a profit is going to survive.

    On the second question, I think the insurance companies are looking at this as a new revenue source and are being suckered into their destruction on the health insurance front.

    I really do think people need to take or retake Economics 101. Here is Milton Friedman in 1978 speaking at the Mayo Clinic, explaining the economic dynamics of socialized medicine. It seems almost prophetic.

  2. Dug – thanks for that video.

    There are numerous agendas and we are being played but by who exactly?

    DT… I’m still looking at all this, because there are SO many facets to it. One thing I do know… this is Cloward-Piven to a T.

    I have to keep disciplining myself to keep realizing that whatever the current thing is in the news cycle, is NOT what the current target is. These guys are such masters at deception and redirection… the media just gets led around by the nose.

    I am always asking myself… what am I not seeing in the picture?

    These townhalls I think are an attempt by the Administration to deploy Rule 10 of Alinksy:
    “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”

    They are trying to get people to turn violent, so the Administration can turn the tables in overall public opinion and/or bring on a police state.

    One final comment on this… if people have not read this essay by John Loeffler called, “The Sad Road to Socialism,” they should:

    I think we are somewhere in Stage 2.

  4. Dug – I am asking myself the same thing….it’s like that word that is just on the tip of your tongue and you can’t think of it. There is SOMETHING I am missing and it is important. I’m taking some time this afternoon to find what it is…will keep you posted.

  5. Villainous Company weighs in on Birthers I thought I was the only one who noticed the “birthers are nuts hypocrisy”

    Birthers… Plus!!!! Trig Palin’s Real Mother, Revealed

    The Editorial Staff are pained to admit that we really have not been following the Amazing Palin Impending Heartbreak Brouhaha. Mostly, this is because we would be hard-pressed to describe how deeply, emphatically, passionately we refuse to notice people who have no lives of their own. Who, to fill some sick void where their souls ought to be, occupy their waking hours (and rape the attention of all and sundry) by conducting marital health checks upon a woman who isn’t holding public office at present and (in a non-election year, no less) won’t be running for anything anytime soon.

    I love Villainous Company.

    While everyone’s been watching the health care bill, the House just passed the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009.

    Read what’s in this (tax) bill:

    This deserves MY AYFKM award. We won’t even be able to have gardens anymore!

    DT… with two business degrees, the other thing I keep coming back to is the money trail. If I step back and look at the bigger financial picture, here are some of the major items:

    1. Nothing being done to address out of control unemployment.
    2. Record government spending on levels we have never seen.
    3. Record government debt
    4. Increasing amount of treasury securities going unsold.
    5. Other countries diversifying debt portfolios out of fear of U.S. economic direction.
    6. Because of #4 and #5, central bank (Fed) is having to buy back securities (print fiat money).
    7. Fed is sending dollars to foreign central banks to prop up the currency.
    8. Consumer/personal debt at all time high.
    9. Federal tax revenue (both individual and corporate) is the lowest since 1932.
    10. State and local governments cannot adequately fund their budgets.

    I look at all of the above and I come to two conclusions/possibilities:

    1. We are on a collision course with hyperinflation.
    2. Someone is trying to purposely collapse our currency.

    As we know, the Cloward-Piven strategy (of which government-run health care is a part) is just a way to hasten government’s inability to meet all these obligations/commitments. So, that is more a statement of timing. The Dems have known they only have a window of about a year (or less) to get the pieces in place to make this happen. Because once this whole thing reaches critical mass, it will be very difficult to stop.

    This kind of currency manipulation and political funding can only be pulled off by very few individuals on the planet.

  8. You’re right. Tiger. There is something on the tip of my tongue that I just can’t quite spit out. I’ve been so upset over the cavalier way the Barbara Wagner was treated in Oregon about her chemo treatment that although I’m spitting a lot not too much sense is coming out.

    The youtube video is just about the worst possible treatment that could be handed down to a person who has the sword of cancer hanging over his or her head.

    So now if we object to teh one’s vile pratices we are part of an unruly mob. I need to step away for a while longer and get my feelings together, then there is no telling what my battered brain will come up with.

    This video says it all about where the rest of us will be if this bill goes through.

    From 1948… ya gotta love it… just goes to show, the problems we are facing are not new.

  10. Dug – This cartoon is priceless. Thank you so much. Now, let’s all get together and kick some a##. Spread this cartoon throught the internet. Invigorate some people. We have our own slick tonic salesman to chase out.

  11. The youtube video of the despicable treatment of Barbara Wagner in Oregon doesn’t seem to be available any longer. If you have a chance to see it pleas do so and then give your opinion on what we face if this health plan goes through.
