Here is the plain and simple truth for Republicans and Conservatives alike; you are going to get next to no help from Democrats making health care better. Despite John McCain’s calls for bipartisanship, no Democrats are going to come to the table in any serious fashion as long as any one of the sacred cows in the entitlement family is on the table. You don’t have to take my word for this when you can hear it from the batty senile horse’s mouth on Fox News Sunday.
It is a simple fact that Obamacare is not working for most of America. The government which moves at glacial speeds and with ponderous inefficiency should be kept as far away as possible from health care, but now the Democrats are declaring that the next step is a single payer healthcare system. Obamacare took a system that was working well for the majority of citizens, added massive government controls and regulations to insure 30 million people. In the end, they only succeeded in adding 12 million people to the rolls and FUBARed coverage for the rest of us. The Democrats who created this mess by adding government now believe the way to fix it… add more government.
I must give credit where it is due as The Daily Caller has been the one media outlet to consistently report on this story and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s bizarre behavior as it relates to this case. When I say strange behavior, I am not using that word hyperbolically, I mean as each layer of the story gets peeled back it becomes another “WTH” moment in a “WTF” story. Let’s recap some of the odd parts of this story that the media refuses to report…
Were you aware of the fact that for a man to serve in the military he must have at least one testicle. Oddly enough they even require that if you only have one testicle that you must be able to inform the MEPS station during your medical screening what exactly happened to your missing testicle. Being a Eunuch is a condition that prevents one from serving in the military… or did it.
I seriously cannot believe that I wrote that sentence because it is true. We have a former administration official encouraging Americans to commit illegals acts and jeopardize national security and the safety of our intelligence sources around the world to hurt President Trump and bring back to life a Russian conspiracy story that despite a year of investigation has yielded one 20-minute meeting between a Russian lawyer, with more ties to the Democratic Party, and Donald Trump Jr. where they ended up discussing… Russian adoptions.
There are four innocuous little words that when used together in a sentence always raise my hackles; “For the greater good”. Everything Hitler did was “for the greater good” and it resulted in the deaths of 50 million people. Every Communist regime has always been based on the concept of being “for the greater good” and in the 20th century alone they killed 94 million people across the planet. We can observe the results of the Venezuelan “for the greater good” experiment in real time where significant portions of the population are starving and they are being brutalized for speaking out in protest. It seems to me that these four inoffensive words, instead of being the harbinger of equity and fairness have been at the root of more human misery and suffering than any others in our history.
Today President Trump has officially been in office for 6 months. I figured I needed a laugh so I decided to mosey on over to CNN to see how the Fake Journalists at our favorite whipping network of ridicule would mark this occasion. Imagine my shock when I saw the article titled, “President Trump’s first six months: by the numbers” as one of the leading stories. Finally, I thought CNN is going to do some actual journalism, but I was wrong.
If only some wise political sage could have spoken to the Democratic Party at the beginning of the year and let them know that by the time the year was halfway through that they would have one of their worst months in terms of political donations. If only someone had been smart enough to predict that their current strategies, vitriol, obstructionism and hateful nonsense was not a path back to power. If only someone with foresight and common sense had been able to interpret what the American people were saying to Democrats… oh wait I did all that.
I cannot go a week without bumping into some hipster doofus poetizing about the glories of socialism on the internet. Of course, when you point out that the iPhone, Twitter and Internet that they are using to try to spread the gospels of socialism are all the byproducts of capitalism it usually triggers an ad hominem attack for challenging their world view with simple logic. Now as we see the numbers of millennials creep north of 50% that do not support capitalism, I only hope that that Generation Z is as Conservative as predicted and us middle age free thinkers hang on long enough to allow them to reach voting age.
As I wrote about earlier in “Words with Enemies – Leftist Edition”, the political Left has pursued their tyrannical approach at suppressing Conservative speech with reckless abandon in the past few months. They have used violence, character attacks and legal action in the name of silencing speech with which they disagree. The most insidious technique in their arsenal of thought policing is and has always been the language of political correctness and the arguments for reasonable accommodations…
