An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Buying More Votes With ObamaCare!
by J.D. Longtreet
Just a snippet:
A number of years ago Ronald Reagan said the following:
“As if we’re not already overextended enough financially, the issue of National Health Care is now on the table once more vote. Here’s some perspective you might find interesting.
Now back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program.
One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.
Read the whole post here! Seriously…..go read it!
I am more and more disappointed in a large number of American people. I’m not sure when it really started, perhaps in the 60s? More likely, when the Federal Reserve was created, but it’s more obvious since the radicals of the ‘free love’ generation starting taking office in recent years. Seems they never grew up, and have been working to create an America they envisioned during their drug induced stupor. Whatever. We began a major decline at some point, and the effects have been devastating, not only on our freedoms, but for the freedoms of all future generations.
I watched the majority of that “I am wonderful, LOVE me” fest, labeled as a ‘news conference’. There were some quite lively discussions in our living room, after some of the most outrageous of The ONE’s comments. Even the Ick in law, who is not much of a political junkie, was appalled at some of the blatant lies, and the fantasies of B. Hussein.
If he mentioned providing health care for illegals, I missed it during our heated discussions. However, evidently, that’s one of the many provisions of this feckless piece of crap. Just one more reason for our country to be invaded from the southern border? Sure. Why not! After all, it’s not his money that will be supporting these people.
And let’s not forget, the food police will be out in full force:
Americans know Obama is not telling the truth and that fact was crystallized in this exchange from last night’s press conference:
JAKE TAPPER ABC NEWS: You said earlier that you wanted to tell the American people what’s in it for them, how will their family benefit from health-care reform. But experts say that in addition to the benefits that you’re pushing, there is going to have to be some sacrifice in order for there to be true cost-cutting measures, such as Americans giving up tests, referrals, choice, end-of-life care.
When you describe health-care reform, you don’t — understandably, you don’t talk about the sacrifices that Americans might have to make. Do you think — do you accept the premise that other than some tax increases, on the wealthiest Americans, the American people are going to have to give anything up in order for this to happen?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: They’re going to have to give up paying for things that don’t make them healthier. And I — speaking as an American, I think that’s the kind of change you want.
NO, MR Obama….that is NOT the change we want. We don’t want you telling us what’s best for us. If I want that second cookie, that’s MY choice, not yours. You worry about your sorry skinny ass, and I’ll worry about my large one, ok? And considering it’s NOT your money, you don’t have a say in what I spend it on, do you! Although, I’m pretty sure that’s what you are aiming towards. In reality, the only change I want right now, is YOUR change of address!
Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. They believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
Narcissistic personality disorder symptoms may include:
- Believing that you’re better than others
- Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
- Exaggerating your achievements or talents
- Expecting constant praise and admiration
- Believing that you’re special
- Failing to recognize other people’s emotions and feelings
- Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
- Taking advantage of others
- Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
- Being jealous of others
- Believing that others are jealous of you
- Trouble keeping healthy relationships
- Setting unrealistic goals
- Being easily hurt and rejected
- Having a fragile self-esteem
- Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional
Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence or strong self-esteem, it’s not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence and self-esteem into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal. In contrast, people who have healthy confidence and self-esteem don’t value themselves more than they value others.
Oh, and let’s not forget this little tidbit:
The version of President Obama’s universal health care plan pending in the U.S. House would require “end-of-life” counseling for senior citizens, and the former lieutenant governor for the state of New York is warning people to “protect their parents” from the measure.
I’ll go when the Good Lord takes me, and not a minute sooner!
