Ramming Speed?


If the people sit still and mind their manners, this monstrosity of a government takeover of 1/6 of the nation's economy will be rammed down our throats. The legislators are in fact approaching ramming speed. To ask people to sit calmly as they are about to get their teeth knocked out is to go against human nature, and to allow evil to be done to this nation. Yes, I said EVIL. I LIVED in Sweden for a short time. I have SEEN what SOCIALISM does to a people. How none of the children wanted to grow up to be ANYTHING. Government comes in and private initiative goes out. I have thanked my lucky stars every day of my life since then that I am an AMERICAN. [edit: I appreciated being an American as a kid, but traveling put our system into contrast in a way I had not known until then.] Do not now make me ashamed.--I left this comment on Left Coast Rebel in response to a commenter who said that we townhall Americans need to dial it down a notch. Hmph! I think NOT. There is HUGE pressure on our representatives, especially the Democrat ones, to pass government health care. They failed to pass Hilary-care, and they know they are burning bridges, so it is now or never. At least for this generation. Maybe when they raise up another generation on liberal pablum they can convince them to vote away their rights to life and health. The folks here have Wised Up.

Is Socialism a Dirty Word?

No, not if one is a socialist. Then it is simply an applied political philosophy. Share the wealth. Tear down the rich so nobody has to feel envy. Ooops. Tore down all the employers and now nobody has a job. Way to GO! Not.

Socialism doesn't seem to have worked, anywhere. Is there some overwhelming reason that those involved can't get this?

cbullitt said...

Tone it down?!? I don't think so. The Senate thinks they can compromise out rights away and say--"look what we stopped." Screw that!! They need to hear loud and clear that on ObamaCare and Waxman-Markey THERE CAN BE NO COMPROMISE. They nedd to fear being voted out of office--and signing up for the "public option."

BTW, I have new "mob" art for the next battle. Stop by.

Wo, I begin to suspect that there is great animosity against us. I know that there is anti American sentiment around the world. Perhaps Obama internalized some of that in his travels. Otherwise I cannot grasp the "why" of all this.

Opus #6 said...

Cbull, no public option. That will spell the end of medicine as we know it. I will swing by and see what you have.

LL said...

WoFat is correct. It hasn't worked anywhere. We're completely under water financially and the government program will cost TRILLIONS. That will ultimately lead to rationing. We all know that.

Congress spends money as if it's desert sand and there is no end. There is no fiscal responsibility in Washington. This is a big part of the problem. You can't keep printing currency and incurring debt forever.

The thing we need to do is encourage free enterprise, government must discontinue ther program to nationalize industries and socialize the nation.

Tone down this! (flips the bird)

Just a conservative girl said...

I agree, the only way this won't pass is if Americans stand up and LOUDLY say no. The sad reality is they will do what they have to do to stay in power. I do think that something will pass this year, but I am hopeful it will be window dressing just so that the administration can claim victory.

Dial it down a notch???

Who was it who advised women, in the middle of rape, to simply lay back and enjoy it? It's just about the same advice.

T'ain't gonna happen around here!

LL said...

I don't think calling a communist a COMMUNIST is a dirty word either. If you are one, you should be proud. Wear your red star like a crown.

However there are closet communists/Marxists, who are in denial. I say that if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, IT'S A DUCK.

Calling a duck, a duck, is not name calling. Neither is calling our president a socialist/national socialist or communist. He should wear the titles proudly - he's working hard to model this nation after his political agenda.

Wow, that's a nice car in that pic, I hope it didn't get damaged.

chupacabra said...

Probably not the first to say it but, although I have had a variety of jobs in my life I have never, ever worked for a poor person and I have never, ever even heard of anyone who has.

Red, you GO girl!

Opus #6 said...

LL, how can we get the government to live within its means?

Opus #6 said...

JACG, hopefully whatever passes will include TORT reform. But, oh, that lawyer in the White House might object.

Opus #6 said...

Nickie, we don't enjoy NOTHIN', LOL!

Opus #6 said...

LL, it's a canard, that's for darn sure.

Opus #6 said...

CI, so far so good, as far as I can tell looking at it.

Opus #6 said...

Chup, thanks for saying that. So many tend to forget. Or the think, if we eliminate all the rich people, that we can all get government jobs. What I would say to them is HELLO! Who will pay the tax required to fund your government job! Because if you just PRINT the money, this country will fall apart.

WoFat said...

Have none of these people ever heard of John Law? No, not THAT John Law.

Opus #6 said...

Wo, I just looked up John Law in wikipedia. Is that they guy in France who got them off the gold standard?

Always On Watch said...

A few days ago on MSNBC, one of the anchors said that calling BHO a socialist was latent racism. Pfffft.
