Obama Needed Fathers Like This

Barack Obama never really knew his father because the stellar baby-daddy abandoned young Barry and his momma. Then Barry’s momma abandoned him. Obama sought out radicals in his young life and that is evident in the way he attempts to lead America. This video is a fine example of what kind of advice Obama could have gotten if he had a decent father who actually stayed around.

    When you can’t win on the issues, the substance, the facts, you could always try attacking his family. That sounds like a real winning idea.

    • Blake says:

      His family (and friends and acquaintances) are part and parcel of what makes up his screwed up outlook- it IS Socialist and/ or Marxist- both of which have never been anything other than FAILED social attempts at governing, primarily because, like in the Owebammacare bill, the elitist, pompous,arrogant A**holes who are serving in Congress refuse to use the same Healthcare as the rest of us- I guess it is not good enough for them, but in what universe do the people one hires get better care than the boss?
      Apparently, the Congress and Residency of the US- They should have to abide by the same rules and care as we get.
      This is where socialism reveals itself to be a farce- If EVERYONE is supposed to get the same care, it CANNOT raise a subset (the politicians) above anyone else, or the system collapses under the weight of its own hypocrisy.

        No one said this. You are free to spend as much as you like and buy the fanciest Cadillac plan you like. Have a doc in your house if you like. No one cares.

        Everyone should have access, at a minimum, to affordable, basic, essential, care. We are much closer to that today.

    “When you can’t win on the issues.”
    Yea winning–that is what OCastro said “I won”–Just who did he win against. Yea, that is right he won against the people of this country. But I wouldn’t expect you to be smart enough to think about the fact that you are one of the people of this country that he is fighting against. He is bringing this country and Capitalism down along with the wealth that went with it.

    • Darrel says:

      I don’t think Castro or similar dictators win on the issues either. That’s why they use force.

      You capitalize the word “capitalism.” Is that some kind of religious observance?

      Oh, I guess you weren’t actually trying to say something about Castro. You trying change Obama’s name or something.

      Someday may I find conservatives who can conduct themselves like adults and actually refer to a president by his correct name?

      Are you of the opinion that it hurts someones credibility other than yours when you do this?

    Here is an example of the magnitude of the stupidity of the left:
    “After the House of Representatives voted on Obamacare, Representative Louise Slaughter, the New York Democrat who chairs the Rules Committee, told the Wall Street Journal: “It makes me so happy that, after 100 years, we can finally catch up with the rest of the world!”.

      But those “patriots” showed her:

      “And on Friday, a brick broke a window at Rep. Louise Slaughter’s district office in Niagara Falls, N.Y. Slaughter,…”

      “Mike Vanderboegh, of Pinson, Ala., former head of the Alabama Constitutional Militia, put out a call on Friday for modern “Sons of Liberty” to break the windows of Democratic Party offices nationwide in opposition to health care reform. Since then, vandals have struck several offices, including the Sedgwick County Democratic Party headquarters in Wichita.”

        I don’t condone the breaking of windows but I guess some folks have figured they needed to start using the left’s tactics against the left. no outrage when lefties break recruiting station windows. now outrage when the shoot at offices or slash tires. Now outrage when they blow up the Pentagon and other buildings in America (and done by a friend of Obama). Maybe some feel this is how to be heard.

        But I don’t want to hear any on the left condem it since they fail to condem their own violence.

    No one cares? Except the government will tax you on those great plans because you have more than someone else.

    Quit trying to lie about it. The reason that this is a lie is because those plans will be taxed to make the playing field level, as if that EVER encourages productivity.

    • Darrel says:

      Bigd: “as if that EVER encourages productivity.”>>

      DAR
      The purpose of progressive taxation is to create a more level playing field, as you say.

      Note:

      “…the origin of modern progressive taxation [goes back] to Adam Smith, who wrote in The Wealth of Nations:

      “The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. A tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.”[16]

      “…in the U.S., an overwhelming majority of economists (81%) support progressive taxation.” –wiki

      And do remember, Jesus spoke of this common sense principle too:

      Luke 21:1. “Then He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all: for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings to God, but she our of her poverty has put in all the livelihood that she had.”

      • Big Dog says:

        So obviously, contrary to your claims, they do care if you want to pay for better health care because they will tax you for buying better stuff.

        So you had it wrong.

        In Luke Jesus points out that she gave more of what she had which was better. If the rich had given all then they would be in the same boat.

        There is nothing wrong with being wealthy.

        And Darrel, you don’t believe the stuff so don’t quote it or are you in that category like the Republicans you describe that liked the CBO when it is in their favor?

      What a load. No one can believe that lie anymore. Tell that to Nikki White.

      The Body Count at Home.

      Oh wait, you can’t. She’s dead.

      D.
      ——————-
      Excerpts:

      “Nikki White would have been far better off if only she had been a convicted bank robber.

      Nikki was a slim and athletic college graduate who had health insurance, had worked in health care and knew the system. But she had systemic lupus erythematosus, a chronic inflammatory disease that was diagnosed when she was 21 and gradually left her too sick to work. And once she lost her job, she lost her health insurance.

      Nikki tried everything to get medical care, but no insurance company would accept someone with her pre-existing condition. She spent months painfully writing letters to anyone she thought might be able to help. She fought tenaciously for her life.

      Finally, Nikki collapsed at her home in Tennessee and was rushed to a hospital emergency room, which was then required to treat her without payment until her condition stabilized. Since money was no longer an issue, the hospital performed 25 emergency surgeries on Nikki, and she spent six months in critical care.

      “When Nikki showed up at the emergency room, she received the best of care, and the hospital spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on her,” her step-father, Tony Deal, told me. “But that’s not when she needed the care.”

      By then it was too late. In 2006, Nikki White died at age 32. “Nikki didn’t die from lupus,” her doctor, Amylyn Crawford, told Mr. Reid. “Nikki died from complications of the failing American health care system.”

      Did Nikki White have “access to affordable care” Bigd?

      D.

      • Big Dog says:

        Well I actually meant to say health care.

        Affordable is a matter of opinion.

        But tell it to John Edwards’ wife. She has all the money in the world and is dying. Or perhaps Jack Murtha or Ted Kennedy who had all the insurance they could want and all the money they needed and they both died.

        Life is a sexually transmitted terminal condition.

        Tell it to the 40 million babies who were aborted as part of a medical procedure designed to end life. How is it we are bombarded with stories about people who died without health care by the people who advocate using medicine to end life and prevent a being from ever having the chance of survival.

        When you guys can get that right then get back to me.

      • Darrel says:

        Bigd: “…people who advocate using medicine to end life and prevent a being from ever having the chance of survival.”>>

        DAR
        You didn’t answer my question.

        You like to run to abortion when stuck because think you have a moral high ground there, but you don’t.

        The male body makes about 1,500 sperm a second (129 million a day, or the earth’s entire population every 51 days). Each one of them is alive, each one is unique, and each one has a “chance of survival.” It doesn’t seem the system or person who set it up this way gives the slightest flip about throwing away nearly all, unique, potential, life.

        “Science tells us that only 10% to 15% of fertilized eggs develop into human beings. A large percentage of fertilized eggs never attach to a woman’s uterine wall, and many others detach in the first several weeks or simply stop developing. Thus, the vast majority of fertilized eggs simply wash away.
        It seems a stretch to conclude that ending a pregnancy is somehow against the will of God when the body rejects more than half of what the Vatican considers a “pregnancy.”

        • Big Dog says:

          I did not know there was a question. What is the threshold for deciding a person died because they had no insurance as opposed to the died and had no insurance? The little boy’s mom decided to stop going to the doctor (even though she had been treated a number of times and had no insurance). Did she die because she had no insurance or because she decided not to be treated?

          If a person without insurance receives care and dies anyway did they die because they have no insurance or without insurance? These are big differences. it is like the bogus millions of forclusures because of medical bills. The threshold is more than $1000 to qualify for that. If you have $1001 medical bills and $90,000 in credit debt they will call it medically related when we both know it is not. It all depends on how it is defined.

          If a person decides not to seek care whether they have insurance or not and they die, then they die because they made a choice.

          Sperm are germ cells and die all the time, that is what they are supposed to do unless the one lucky one hits the egg. We kill germs all the time (each time we wash our hands with germicidal soap).

          Once the sperm and egg meet it is not long before the gentics are human. The human body rejects certain pregnancies because of problems with the system. It is no different than the body adjusting to a cold or other problem with homeostasis.

          And the reason men ejaculate so many sperm is because they do not ask for directions either…

          Bigd: “Sperm are germ cells and die all the time…”>>

          DAR
          Irrelevant. I gave the Nikki White example and you went back to your comfort zone of “babies… were aborted as part of a medical procedure” as if this makes Nikki’s case no big deal. This is where you try to pretend there is no difference between a person living in society and a zygote. You confuse the actual with the potential as if there is no difference. There is a difference.

          Each sperm is human, alive, unique and has the potential to become a person. But it’s not a person even though it has the potential to become one. There is a difference between the potential and actual. Likewise, each zygote is human, alive, unique and has the potential to become a person, but it’s not a person. Sperm, relative to their number, have little to no value. Zygotes, just a wee bit more than that based upon a willing host. But unlike Nikki, neither are persons just because they have the potential to become persons.

          A seed is not a tree even though it has the potential to become a tree. We acknowledge this difference between seeds and trees. A tree can have a great value. Seeds not so much.

          You and Obama, at birth, each had the potential to become president. But he is the “actual” president, and you are still only struggling at the “potential” level. This is the difference between potential, and actual. It’s a very big difference and it’s best to not pretend there isn’t one.

      ***
      Amid fight for life, lupus victim fights for insurance

      Tuesday, December 05, 2006
      By Jane Zhang, The Wall Street Journal

      BRISTOL, Tenn. — On her 32nd birthday just over a year ago, Monique “Nikki” White had such severe pain from lupus, a disease in which the immune system attacks healthy tissue, that she couldn’t open her presents. Three weeks later, as skin lesions spread over her body and her stomach swelled, she couldn’t sleep.

      “Mama, please help me! Please take me to the E.R.,” she howled, according to her mother, Gail Deal. “OK, let’s go,” Mrs. Deal recalls saying. “No I can’t,” the daughter replied. “I don’t have insurance.”

      In the morning, she had a seizure and had to be rushed to the hospital anyway. Doctors found that her kidney had failed, her liver wasn’t much better and her intestines were perforated, a symptom of pancreatitis. Those can be life-threatening side effects of lupus or of a drug she was taking. Her rheumatologist prescribed it in June, telling Ms. White to return every four to six weeks and undergo a CT scan so that he could check for signs of infection or organ damage.

      But Ms. White didn’t go back. In July, she received a notice that she was being thrown off the Tennessee Medicaid program, known as TennCare, which launched an ambitious expansion in 1994 to cover people like her. Now, it was being scaled back because annual costs more than doubled over 10 years.

      The CT scan would cost Ms. White at least $2,000 if TennCare wouldn’t pay. Each visit to the rheumatologist would cost another $80 and each blood test at least $183. Ms. White had been too sick to work regularly for four years, and she told her primary physician that she couldn’t afford to see the specialist again.

      With Ms. White’s health deteriorating, her mother says she and her daughter called Dr. Morris at least 10 times separately or together without reaching him. “His office would never let us talk to him and we would always leave a message for him to call us back,” Mrs. Deal says. Dr. Morris says he received only two phone calls and asked a nurse to return them.

      Dr. Morris says his office learned in August that TennCare would not pay for the CT scan he had ordered. But if he had realized Ms. White was avoiding care because of the cost, he says, he would have asked her to come in anyway or at least see her primary physician, Dr. Crawford…

      As Ms. White’s skin lesions spread to her hands, she had to wear gloves to use a pen. Still, she jotted down symptoms on whatever happened to be close at hand — journals, napkins, little pieces of paper that marked her place in her Bible. In an Oct. 10 note, she wrote, “Awake choking on blood running down back of throat; nose bleed ensued shortly afterward. Good amount of blood covering my face, teeth, in my mouth. Lasted about 10 minutes…Surging pains in my head, but deeper, as if in my brain. Pulsing pain continued intermittently. Really frightened, tried not to panic.”

      The rest here.

      DAR
      Well, surely she must have lived in some poor third world country that can’t afford to provide it’s citizens with essential medical care.

      D.

      • Big Dog says:

        Once again, you are misrepresenting the truth. You say that the country could not afford to provide.

        Care was provided when they took her so it is safe to conclude that care would have been provided had Nikki gone to the ER the night before. But she CHOSE not to go:

        No I can’t,” the daughter replied. “I don’t have insurance.”

        No, I can’t. If she had gone then she would have been treated (and probably died anyway). She took the decision not to go. No one stopped her, she did it on her own. What she did is no different than refusing treatment which all of us can do.

        And the most telling part is that if we are to assume she died because of lack of insurance then we may conclude she died because of government rationing. Ms. White was on Medicaid which is a government program:

        But Ms. White didn’t go back. In July, she received a notice that she was being thrown off the Tennessee Medicaid program, known as TennCare, which launched an ambitious expansion in 1994 to cover people like her. Now, it was being scaled back because annual costs more than doubled over 10 years.

        SHE RECEIVED A NOTICE SHE WAS BEING THROWN OFF MEDICAID BECAUSE IT WAS SCALING BACK DUE TO COSTS.

        Let us recap boys and girls. This woman was on government run health care and it dropped her because of costs. But, but, but government won’t drop people because of costs that would be RATIONING care and they said it would not happen.

        This woman died because of a disease. She might have lived if she was treated. She was not treated because she refused to go to the ER because she did not have health insurance.

        She did not have health insurance because the GOVERNMENT RUN program she was on DROPPED HER TO SAVE MONEY.

        Any questions boys and girls?

        How could she have been cut from government run health care and how many people will be cut in the future just to save money?

        There Darrel, is you government health care. Look at MA for further evidence.

          Of course I didn’t say that. I have actually always said the opposite of that.

          What a pathetic and telling response.

          Watching you flop around and try to defend the indefensible, using little word games and childish distortions rather than acknowledging any compassion for the suffering and death of someone who clearly died from a lack of care in America.

          A person with a concept of compassion would understand and acknowledge that the US medical system failed this citizen.

          I could go through and give you a good shredding again but the above really stands quite nicely on it’s own. By your own words, people can know you.

But Nikki White was a citizen of the world’s richest country, the United States of America.”
