"Green Police" Commercials: Art Reflecting Leftist Desire

These were featured on the Sunday’s Superbowl. I’m sure they meant this tongue in cheek. Or did they? Unfortunately, the far left, who are in control of all facets of government, are on the side of criminalizing what they would deem excessive use of anything they don’t like this week.

The Heritage Foundation says in reality it’s really not so funny.

OBAMA MUST ANSWER: WHO "SNUCK" WHAT "THINGS" INTO THE HEALTHCARE BILL, WHEN AND HOW? by REES LLOYD

President Barack Hussein Obama, His Petulancy, who bows and quakes before Islamofasist dictators and procrastinated for more than three months before deciding to grant, only in part, the request of his hand-picked military commander for more troops to effectively fight the Afghanistan war, is now vowing to “go to war” with Republicans over his Obamacare Bill, starting with a “Look-At-Me health care publicity-stunt involving Himself and both parties to be televised by C-span, according to media.
 Obama’s move is at once Machiavellian, and almost Shakespearean in its audacity, at least to the extent that it is patently “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. A tale told by an idiot,” and published by the same in Obama’s fawning media elite. 
  Obama is intent, we citizens are informed,  on blaming and shaming Republicans in Congress by a televised charade of bi-partisan dialogue for their failure to vote to support his Obamacare Bill. That is, their failure to support the  2,000-page statutory monstrosity put together behind closed doors with backroom deals aplenty by Democrat Sen. Harry (“Let’s Make A Deal”) Reid’s infamous Obama-approved “Louisiana Purchase” ($300-million political-bribe for Democrat Sen. Mary Landreau’s vote), the “Cornhusker Hustle” (the political-bribe for Democrat Sen. Ben Nelson’s vote, which puts all American taxpayers on the hook to pay Nebraska’s Medicaid costs into perpetuity), and, among others, the deal for Florida’s vote in exchange for a guarantee its citizens will get to keep Medicare Advantage,  but  the citizens of other states will not. 
 But before Obama stages another self-serving, devious media spectacular to promote himself and advance his Progressive (i.e., Ultra-Liberal) governmental takeover of the healthcare industry, one-sixth of the economy, he should be compelled to answer to the nation the questions of who “snuck” what “things” in the Obamacare Bill which will deprive Americans of maintaining their own doctors and their own insurance if they choose.
That is, Obama in his campaign, and thereafter, repeatedly, in his seemingly sincere way, in dulcet tones,  promised Americans that that every American would be able “to keep your own doctor”  under his Bill, if they so chose. This refrain was repeated over-and-over by Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Obama’s  twin advisors, Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, and other Democrats. 
 We now know those assurances, promises, and representations were deceptively misleading. More correctly, lies.
 We know this now because Obama  showed-up for media-time at the GOP Congressional Retreat, and 
in an almost  “oh, by the way” aside, revealed that Americans would not be able to keep their own doctors under his Bill.
 Rather, Obama, excusing himself and blaming unidentified others, for the first time publicly admitted that some persons (unidentified by Obama, but who had to be Democrats as Republicans weren’t included in the drafting),  “snuck” (Obama’s word) “some things” (His Eloquence’s words) into the legislation which would, in fact, preclude Americans from retaining their own doctors and own health insurance if they choose.
Obama’s revelation comes after a year in which Obama and the Democrats have attempted to foist on Americans a 2,000-page bill that no one has read, and which was cobbled together in the most corrupt of means and methods. It is a disgrace worthy of the Wall Street Journal’s designation of the Obamacare Bill as the “worst legislation ever.” 
Now, in 2010, after all the assurances of Obama in his campaign, all the assurances given by Obama and his Democrat lemmings through a year in which Obamacare was the main legislative focus of the Democrat dominated Congress — so dominated that Obama could have passed his legislation without a single Republican vote — Obama, Himself, reveals that all the promises that Americans could keep their doctors and their own health insurance were in fact untrue, bogus, misleading representations. In short: audacious lies.
 Although the Obama-adoring liberal media reported on Obama’s admissions at the Republican retreat, the media, which never miss an opportunity to slander or impugn overtly or by innuendo Sarah Palin and Tea Party Patriots — or talk-radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sean Hannity, and Victoria Taft who have claimed all-along that Americans would lose their right to choose to keep their doctors and insurance if Obamacare passed — failed to follow-up and press Obama or his regime for answers to all the questions raised by his admission that  the nation has been misled and lied to for over a year on this issue.
Therefore, before there can be any credibility of Obama or the media about Obama sincerely seeking bi-partisanship rather than staging a television farce with Republicans who refused to support Obama’s egregiously crafted Obamacare legislation, Obama should first be compelled to answer the fundamental questions presented, including:
–Obama should be compelled to identify just who  “snuck” what “things” into the Obamacare Bill, when and how. Obama should have to “name names.” He should be compelled to explain just what the “things” are; explain how they were “snuck” in despite his ultimate responsibility and care and the total Democrat control of the writing of the statute by Pelosi in the House and Reid in the Senate; and why nothing was revealed at the time that “things” were “snuck” into the legislation.
–Obama should be compelled to state when Obama knew that the Obamacare Bill contained provisions which would deny to Americans the right to keep their own doctors and their own health insurance plans, and when did he know it.
–Obama should be compelled to explain why Obama did not immediately inform the public and demand that the Democrats remove the “things” he contends were “snuck” into the Obamacare Bill.
–Obama should be compelled to explain why he continued to urge Congress to adopt, and Americans to support, the Obamacare Bill, as crafted, when he knew that some persons had “snuck” things into the Bill which Obama, Himself, had promised and assured the nation would not be in the Obamacare Bill.
Answers to those and related questions should be forthcoming before any more Machiavellian attempts to deceive the American people as to Obama’s governmental takeover of health care, whether these attempts are by his staging meaningless belated televised meetings with Republicans or other manipulations.
Failing answers to those questions, Obama does not have, does not deserve, and cannot have, any credibility on healthcare reform, or any other issue,  as the holder of the highest office – and the highest responsibility – the nation offers. Nor  can the elite media have any credibility if it continues to fail to demand answers to the questions posed.

A Note To Rep. Chris Van Hollen

Representative Van Hollen, while I am not one of your constituents, I do appreciate the frequent updates I receive from you pertaining to requests for donations to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

I received one such email from you just today, February 8, 2010 concerning the passing of Pennsylvania’s Representative John Murtha. My condolences to his family.

In your email you claimed, “America has lost a patriotic veteran” and “Congressman Murtha worked to ensure that our men and women in uniform and their families had the support and resources they deserve.”

Did you forget when Rep. Murtha accused a squad of United States Marines of “cold blooded murder” in the Haditha case?

The last I heard, 7 of the 8 accused have been acquitted with the 8th still waiting for trial. Is that what you classify as “ensuring that our men and women in uniform and their families have the support and resources they deserve?”

He refused to even apologize to them as it was seen how wrong he was.

Did you somehow forget, or just ignore, Rep. Murtha’s involvement in the ABSCAM Bribery Scandal?

Through his lengthy congressional career, Murtha found political controversy easy to come by.

I can understand you grieving the loss of a friend and fellow Democrat. Although I imagine he left his family well off, I do extend my condolences to them and feel they too have a right to grieve the loss of a loved one.

What bothers me most, Representative Van Hollen is that we saw some very brave men pass on this past year. We saw Ed Freeman, Robert Howard, Lewis Millet, James Swett, George Wahlen, Russell Dunham and I’m sure more that didn’t make the news, much less any extensions of condolence from either the leadership of the Democratic party or the Republican Party.

What is truly the saddest part is that I seriously doubt neither you nor the average American could name what is significant about any one of the men listed without looking them up.

Representative Van Hollen, go ahead and grieve for losing a friend. Send out an email to draw sympathy and maybe even donations for your party. Dance on his grave if you please to gain support for legislation you favor.

But please, extend some recognition for those who have served their country in ways neither you, nor Jack Murtha and very few Americans can even imagine, recipients of the Medal of Honor, our highest Military Award for bravery above and beyond the call of duty.

These men are the bravest of the brave. John Murtha was just an elected official.

The heroes listed were true American heroes deserving of much more than any elected official receives.

Their sacrifices are more deserving than any made by Jack Murtha and yet, you could not bring yourself to send out any notice declaring, “America has lost a patriotic Veteran” at any of their passing.

M 66 & 67 Fall Out: Dave Hunt Claims Job Creation in Last Oregon Session

Help me out, here. Exactly what job creation did the Oregon legislature accomplish in the last session? 
From: Rep Hunt [mailto:hunt.rep@state.or.us]
Sent: Saturday, January 30, 2010 10:33 AM
To: Mark D. Twietmeyer
Subject: RE: Layoffs > Due to Measure 67
Mr. Twietmeyer:
Exactly how much more will be you paying in corporate taxes? 
Even after the passage of Measures 66 & 67, Oregon will have the LOWEST corporate tax rates on the West Coast and the fifth LOWEST in America.  Now we can prevent further cuts to the schools, community colleges, universities, workforce development, transportation, public safety, and courts on which Oregon businesses depend.
It will also enable our February legislative session to stay focused on job creation (continuing the job-creating laws we passed last year on transportation, health care, affordable housing, renewable energy, capital construction, etc.) and helping Oregon families who have been hit particularly hard by this global recession — rather than piling on additional cuts in critical services.
Thank you for sharing your perspective.  I look forward to hearing back from you about the specifics of your new taxes.
Dave Hunt
State Representative

Speaker of the House

Obama "Summit" on Health Care: Don’t Fall for it, Republicans

Story here. Let him have his meeting and blame the GOP all he wants but don’t you be there to be used as props and cannon fodder.
The majority of the American people know the Democrats were going to shove this down our throats last summer without any input from Republicans. Any.
Now don’t you dare give the imprimatur of the GOP with this charade.
Especially since the president has backed off even his vestigial talk about tort reform. It’s all or nothing with these guys. We’ll get no real reform, less liberty, and higher bills if we don’t anything the Obamabots want on health reform.
I’ve said it a million times. We need reform. We don’t need a take over. These are things we need to do for starters:

  • De couple health care from employment
  • Make the purchase of health care policies tax exempt
  • Allow people to purchase health care policies across state lines
  • Keep the high risk pools for hard to insure people in place in states
  • Reduce government mandates (such as sex change operations, City of Portland) Besides, when people have more choice you’ll have less need for mandates.
  • Tort reform; reduce the jackpot justice for run of the mill cases which help drive up health care costs
