Stupid Or Flipping America The Bird? (Updated)

Stupid Or Flipping America The Bird? (Updated)

(Dammit Janet, where is that Protocol Coach?)

I saw this photograph awhile back and so much was happening that I did not make much of it then, but the question today would be: “Are the Obamas stupid or are they flipping the American People and our Founding Fathers the bird?”

What say you?

(…and don’t they look absolutely thrilled to be listening to the

National Anthem

instead of dancing with Earth, Wind, and Fire, and eating Kobe beef?)

UPDATE: I am searching for the original photo to see if this is the most incredibly photochopped image every made.  Guess What?  I can’t find this image anywhere – so far.  Will keep you updated.

UPDATE #2: My bad.  I am a big enough person to admit when I am wrong, and I found the original image after looking at about 8,000 photos of this pair and here it is from the 9.11 Anniversary.  My apologies folks, but this has to be the best photoshop I have ever seen.  My punishment for not vetting this photo was having to look at all of those photos!

Nancy Realizes That 2010 Is Important (Updated)

(Update: Please see the additional article after this initial email from the inciter.)

Nancy is living in her own special version of “my little pony world”, and I wish that enough Californians would wake up and kick her butt to the curb.  Once again, she is sending out letters begging for money because we are all lying about Obama and wreaking havoc in the nation.  She thinks the left needs to restore “civility”, while I just attended the largest gathering of Americans where not one person was arrested, and where I did not hear one harsh word spoken.  I just keep thinking about the anarchists bused in from Portland, Oregon for WTO in 1999 and the SWAT Teams that had to attend because of them.

When you read this email from the former speaker-to-be, keep in mind that everything she accuses the Republicans of, are the actual actions of the left.  Just thought you might want to know what is coming up next from Nancy and her crew, and I would like to know where the 2-1 money is coming from…our pockets?

Dear Friend,

If this summer proved anything, it showed how urgently we must stand together to restore civility to our politics and help President Obama seize this historic moment for health insurance reform in America.

You have already taken a stand against the Republicans’ attempt to shout down President Obama and restore civility in Washington. For that, I cannot thank you enough.

We have entered the make-or-break month.
The media is closely watching to see which side has the momentum. With the Republicans already claiming victory for trying to silence respectful debate, it is up to grassroots Democrats to show the world that no amount of shouting can drown out our determination to enact health insurance reform.

Your Gift Will Be Matched 2-1

In his eloquent call for action last week before a joint session of Congress, President Obama called on us to “replace acrimony with civility.” He reiterated his call to restore civility to Washington during his interview on “60 Minutes” this weekend. Yet, our opponents continue their name-calling in a cynical attempt to derail these reforms.

The Republican defenders of the status quo are shouting because they understand that this is the toughest Midterm Election that Democrats have ever faced. They also understand that this is a critical month for health insurance reform and they are trying to deal a serious blow to President Obama’s agenda for moving America forward.

Show the world that no amount of Republican shouting can drown out our determination to help President Obama reform health insurance. Contribute $5, $10 or more to our Million Dollar Match today and your gift will be matched 2-to-1, tripling its impact.

It is urgent that we stand together as Democrats. With all eyes on the coming Midterm Elections, let us use this critical September deadline to show the world just how prepared we are to maintain a strong Democratic Majority for President Obama so he can keep America moving in a New Direction.

Thank you.

Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House

P.S. The Republicans recognize that September is the make-or-break month for health insurance reform. That is why they have increased their shouting and their false attacks on President Obama. It is urgent that we stand together.

It appears that Nancy just cannot keep her mouth shut, OR she really is trying to incite violence with all of her rhetoric about un-American nazis.  She is either really stupid or very dangerous, which in my opinion, disqualifies her for public service.

Pelosi warns right of inciting “violence” — invoking Harvey Milk murder

An uncharacteristically emotional Nancy Pelosi is warning Republicans — and other groups getting whipped up over the health care debate — not to incite unstable supporters who might repeat acts of violence that struck San Francisco in the 1970s.

A top Pelosi aide later confirmed reporters’ suggestions that her statement — a reference to the City Hall murder of gay rights activist Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone in Nov. 1978 — an earth-shattering experience for Bay Area Democrats like the speaker.

Pelosi stumbled when asked about Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” outburst and its impact on civility in the House, momentarily overcome by emotion.

“I think we all have to take action and responsibility for our words — we are a free country and this balance between freedom and safety is one that we, um, have to carefully balance,” said Pelosi, who made no direct mention of Republicans.

A House leadership aide later told me that Democrats have become increasingly concerned by the ratcheting up of rhetoric on both sides — and particularly alarmed by the recent hanging in effigy of Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-Md.) by a tea party activist on the Eastern Shore.

“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because i saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco, this king of rhetoric. … It created a climate in which violence took place. … I wish we would all curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements and understand that some of the ears that it is falling on are not a balanced as the person making the statements may assume.”

Ironically, the most notorious act of violence to afflict the health care debate was the recent scrum between a pro-reform protester and a Tea Party activist in which the liberal bit off part of the conservatives finger after being punched in the face.

The Pelosi scrap mirrors an earlier fight. In April, the Department of Homeland Security set off a firestorm of protest acknowledged it had produced a report entitled: “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” which warned that right-wing groups could be spurred to violence by the election of the nation’s first African-American president.

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Tx.) is the first House GOPer to take issue with Nancy Pelosi’s contention that the vehemence of anti-health care reform rhetoric could lead to a wave of violence akin to that which hit SF in the ’70s:

“Speaker Pelosi is right that the American people are upset, but it is her own words that continue to fuel voter frustration in America,” Sessions said in a statement sent to POLITICO. “No longer content with criticizing concerned citizens for being ‘un-American,’ the Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda.”

Sessions, who raised eyebrows earlier this year by suggesting the House GOP minority needed to adapt the insurgent politics of the Taliban, added: “During one of the most important policy debates of our time, the American people have been completely abandoned by those elected representatives under her control. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington, and the Speaker’s verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering her reputation for being wildly out of touch with the American people.”

What IS The Agenda?

What IS The Agenda?

NormanMattoonThomas

I have spent the last 2 1/2 days getting ready for a hurricane tropical storm that can’t seem to decide how big and what path it is actually going to take.  I have also not been writing because I have been watching, and background processing, and the only question that keeps coming up over and over again is, “What IS the agenda of the democrats and this WH?” Nobody could possibly be so stupid as to attack the American public unless they want to achieve an outcome they already know is coming. Something about all of this reeks of “timing”. I still say that we do not need to do healthcare reform RIGHT THIS MINUTE!

By now almost anybody paying attention to the news today has heard about Nancy and Steny going off the deep end calling dissenters “un-American”.

Please keep the definition of fascism in mind as you peruse.

Fascism
a. A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
b. A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.
2. Oppressive, dictatorial control.

‘Un-American’ attacks can’t derail health care debate

Americans have been waiting for nearly a century for quality, affordable health care.

Health coverage for all was on the national agenda as early as 1912, thanks to Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Moose presidential run. Months after World War II came to an end in 1945, President Harry Truman called on Congress to guarantee all Americans the “right to adequate medical care and protection from the economic fears of sickness.” From President Lyndon Johnson to President Bill Clinton, to President Obama’s winning campaign on the promise of reform, there hasn’t been a more debated domestic issue than the promise of affordable health care for all.

(Steny Hoyer)

Obviously Steny has never read the chapter in this book about Teddy Roosevelt; on second thought, maybe he has:

Now, it’s Nancy’s turn to ratchet up the rhetoric and drive the ponies toward the cliff; but listen closely and you will see what she is afraid of, and what they are intending.  This is ONLY my humble thought processes; make sure to report me to snitch.gov.

We believe it is healthy for such a historic effort to be subject to so much scrutiny and debate. The failure of past attempts is a reminder that health insurance reform is a defining moment in our nation’s history — it is well worth the time it takes to get it right. We are confident that we will get this right.

Translation: We will get a public option that will lead to single payer health care which will put every single American on the road to complete socialism.  Of course we are going to take the time to get it right; we are so close to flipping this country from capitalism to socialism that we will do what it takes to make it happen.

Already, three House committees have passed this critical legislation and over August, the two of us will work closely with those three committees to produce one strong piece of legislation that the House will approve in September.

We are going to get socialist medicine no matter what it takes.

In the meantime, as members of Congress spend time at home during August, they are talking with their constituents about reform. The dialogue between elected representatives and constituents is at the heart of our democracy and plays an integral role in assuring that the legislation we write reflects the genuine needs and concerns of the people we represent.

Nancy is living in an alternate reality if she can write that and then write this:

However, it is now evident that an ugly campaign is underway not merely to misrepresent the health insurance reform legislation, but to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue. These tactics have included hanging in effigy one Democratic member of Congress in Maryland and protesters holding a sign displaying a tombstone with the name of another congressman in Texas, where protesters also shouted “Just say no!” drowning out those who wanted to hold a substantive discussion.

Let the facts be heard

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 facts?

Now — with Americans strongly supporting health insurance reform, with Congress reaching consensus on a plan, and with a president who ran and won on this specific promise of change — America is closer than ever to this century-deferred goal.

This fall, at long last, we must reach it.

Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is speaker of the House

It appears Nancy is trying to herd the dissenters into one little group off in the snowbank while she “links” Americans supporting health insurance reform with Congress reaching a consensus, which unfortunately for her is the farthest scenerio from the truth.

From Rasmussen:

The Public’s View of Health Care Debate

Over the past few months, Rasmussen Reports has conducted many surveys on the topic of health care reform. As July comes to an end and Congress prepares to take a break from Washington, the following reports highlight public attitudes on a variety of health care topics.

Just 47% Favor Congressional Health Care Reform, 49% Oppose

23% Believe Health Care Costs Will Go Down if Reform Passes Congress

Only 18% Say Those With Chronic Conditions Should Pay More in Health Insurance

Cost, Not Universal Coverage, is Top Health Care Concern for Voters

50% Oppose Government Health Insurance Company

78% Say Health Care Reform Likely to Mean Higher Taxes for the Middle Class

Massachusetts: 26% Consider State’s Health Care Reform a Success

Americans Evenly Divided Over Urgency of Health Care Reform

Americans Support Universal Health Coverage, But Not If It Covers Illegal Immigrants

Congressional Consensus on Health Care Gets Mixed Reviews from Public

31% Say Healthy Should Be Required to Buy Health Insurance

50% Support More Taxes on Alcohol To Help Fund Universal Health Care

42% Favor Free Health Care For All Americans – Unless Their Own Coverage Has To Change

56% of Uninsured Rate U.S. Health Care System as Poor, 26% Receive Poor Care

32% Would Pay Higher Taxes to Provide Health Insurance for All

35% Rate U.S. Health Care Good or Excellent

70% of Insured Rate Health Insurance Coverage As Good or Excellent

54% Favor Middle Class Tax Cuts Over New Health Care Spending

Consensus? What consensus?

But I got sucked into that and I digress…

What is the agenda that the dems are all about right now?  What?  Class War? Martial Law? Learned helplessness? Demoralization? Complete destruction of the middle class?

I am still looking and learning more about the foundations that are in the background.  I will find the answer, as I know it is staring me in the face, and maybe I am just suffering from disbelief…
