When Obama and his band of merry thieves were out pushing socialized medicine down our throats the supporters were elated at the prospect of free health care. Make those nasty rich people pay for my health care. Pay for my birth control as well because this is my right!
There is no such thing as a free lunch and, as Obama’s favorite Imam (ahem, Pastor), Jeremiah Wright, might say the chickens are coming home to roost.
It looks like the poor will be hit particularly hard by Obamacare. Yes ladies and gentlemen, the poor will pay more.
Excuse me, I had to laugh. They thought the evil rich would take it in the shorts while they received another government provided (read taxpayer provided) hand out.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that Obamacare is going to make health care unaffordable to a shockingly large number of poor people — many of them single and childless. This should come as no surprise, though: The burden of regulation falls all too often disproportionately on the relatively poor, especially the working poor — the very people this law was supposed to help. Obamacare, sadly, is merely the latest and most painful hit from the regulatory onslaught of Washington, diverting resources that could be better used to address larger and more immediate risks.

I am sure there will be some mad rush to correct this. Politicians will scream bloody murder and there will be a push for some single payer system to take out the disparity. Why, it is just unfair to make the poor pay more.
Well hell, government caused it. They should have read the bill before they passed it but Pelosi said it had to be passed to see what was in it.
So now that it has passed we are seeing more and more things that are a nightmare.
The poor will be hard hit but that must happen. Pain is a great teacher and unless it hurts them a lot they will keep doing stupid things like supporting the redistribution of taxpayer money.
Never surrender, never submit.

Barack Obama’s sequester is set to kick in on Friday and there appears to be no stopping it from taking place. This means that about 85 billion dollars will be cut from the growth in the budget (not the actual budget but what they said they would spend) and about 48 billion of that will come from the Defense Department. Obama and his Democrats could easily cut items that do not affect people but have chosen to cut where it will hurt the most. In the DOD 800,000 people will lose 20% of their salary when furloughs start at the end of April. This is being done to hurt people and there is a reason for it.
Obama wants people to hurt and he wants to pin the blame on Republicans. Obama came up with the sequester but he will put the blame on others.
No surprise there.
He wants voters to be angry with Republicans so they will be voted out in 2014 and Obama can have a majority in Congress. Then he can run roughshod over the country.
There is also another reason Obama chose to hurt people. He needs people to hurt so he can claim that cuts to government hurt people so there can be no more cuts and taxes have to be raised.
Imagine how bad it would be for Democrats if the cuts took place and no one noticed. Imagine how it would be portrayed if those cuts were so painless that people began demanding more in the way of cuts. That can’t be allowed to happen if you are a big government socialist like Obama. He needs people to get hurt so he can brainwash them into thinking big government is the answer and that there is no spending problem (after all, we need the spending to prevent people from being hurt) and that the problem is revenue.
Obama got his revenue increase and it is far above the amount of the looming cuts. The entire cut amounts to about 2.5 cents of every dollar of the projected spending. The government could easily cut 2.5% from spending (the growth in spending) and not even feel it.
That is why they are targeting people and programs that directly help people. Obama needs to inflict maximal pain to push his agenda.
This guy who so many believe cares for people is a cold and calculating political monster who cares nothing about anyone. He cares for his agenda and socialism and that is all.
So if you support him and his cuts hurt you then you got what you voted for and what you deserve. If you don’t support him and get hurt then you will have to suck it up and do the best you can.
Strong people will come through the other side intact. The weak will be worse off because their baby daddy in government is spanking them.
Deliberately harming people is wrong and the mark of a true beast.
Maybe someone in Congress can make one of the cuts the executive Air Force that ferries people like Obama and his vacation addicted wife around. Be kind of nice to see them stuck in DC actually having to do something.
Anyone with some testicular fortitude on the right side of the aisle willing to make this cut?
I doubt it. They will probably cave and give king dufus all that he wants.
Never surrender, never submit.

While Obama’s labor folks claim they have not heard any businesses complain about the impact of Obamacare the reality is that many businesses are feeling the heat. I suppose it is possible that there are not as many complaints as there could be since Obama has granted quite a few waivers to his minions so their businesses are not feeling the pinch. Others though, are downsizing or cutting hours so that they will not be stung by the huge financial impact Obamacare will have.
This started almost as soon as Obama was declared the winner of the tainted 6 November election and has been going strong ever since. Even some liberal professors (are there really any other kind) are feeling the pinch.
A community college in Pennsylvania is cutting back the hours of its adjunct instructors so that they will not fall under the definition of workers who have to be covered by their employer. The Community College of Allegheny is cutting all its part time folks back to 25 hours so that they are under the 30 hours Obamacare defines as full time for purposes of employer provided health care coverage. I wonder how many of these folks voted for Obama…
This is what happens when government mandates things that it has no business being involved in. When government makes rules that apply to businesses with 50 or more workers many small businesses that have slightly more than 50 workers scale down to below 50 to avoid the requirements. Obamacare has cutoffs and many businesses are cutting employees or scaling hours in order to avoid being bitten by the high costs of the law.
Other businesses are adding a surcharge as an individual line item specifically for Obamacare.
This is wise because it lets people know that the increase is because of the cost of Obamacare and it lets them know that cost is being passed on to them, just as all costs including tax increases, are.
I truly hope that this happens all over the country and that people are left to fend for themselves. All the mindless drones who voted for Obama and his vision of big government are likely unaware that they will have to buy health insurance and that Obamacare is not free. I want them to suffer sticker shock and outrage. I also want them to be in pain for the entire time they are required to follow the law.
Pain is a great teacher and I hope these morons are in great pain for what they have done to this country.
Never surrender, never submit.

A guy named Shawn Turschak was tired of someone stealing his McCain/Pailin signs so he hooked a little dog electric fence up to the sign post and then placed a camera to record the thief.
I hope that little shock taught the kid a lesson. I hope it was severe enough to hurt for a while and bad enough to make him tell his parents about it. I have to believe that this little tyke did not decide to steal the signs on his own and was probably egged on by cowardly parents who could later claim, if he were caught, that he acted on his own and they would “punish” him. If the parents were caught, they could get in trouble with the law. Cowards.
Anyway, this is a great idea and I bet it taught, at least for a little while, a very valuable lesson.
Big Dog Salute to Kat.

On the night the “Unifying” convention got under way a poll shows that about 30% of Hillary Clinton supporters do not support Barack Obama. Most of these folks are taking a risk by bucking the party because they risk being castigated and called traitors. Look at how Joe Lieberman has been treated since he dared to support John McCain. It is amazing that all the Democrats who refused to support him actually expect him to support them. He has given them more support than they deserve.
In any event, the Hillary supporters are not willing to support Obama. They do not think he is experienced enough and they believe that Hillary was treated unfairly during the primaries. I have said it before and I extend the offer again, come on over. You do not have to change parties (though you can if you want) and you will be free to support who you want in four years (and we won’t call you traitors). If you want to defeat Obama and give Hillary a shot in four years then the best way to do it is to get behind McCain. We can be united today for McCain and in four years we can have a spirited debate about which of the two is better qualified to lead this country. If Obama wins Hillary will not get another shot.
There are many like you who are upset. This is Debra’s story:
Now I know that if Hillary had been the nominee Debra would be supporting her and we would be on opposite sides. But the fact that Hillary lost does not mean that Debra or millions like her have to devote blind allegiance to whomever the party nominates. They should be free to vote for whom they please without being bullied or labeled as traitors. You folks should be free to put country above party and vote for what is in the nation’s best interest.
Folks, you know that terrible feeling you have in your stomach? You know that nagging ache that keeps making you wonder what if? That feeling that lets you know that you lost but still makes it hard to believe? That pain is awful and anyone who loses after putting in as much time and energy as you did and then loses has felt it and no one likes it. It intensifies as you are forced to watch the convention knowing your candidate will not be the nominee.
It is your turn to give that feeling to all the Obama backers. You have the opportunity to give a gut punch to the people who treated your candidate badly and who then treated you badly while celebrating their victory, a victory assisted by the media, a media that also turned on your candidate. You can take the life out of millions of people and their puppets in the media by voting John McCain into the White House. It will deflate Obama’s huge ego and it will give you the chance to say “I told you so.”
Come on over to our side. Yes we have differing opinions on some of the subjects but we are united in our belief that Obama lacks the experience to be president and would be a dangerous pick for our country. Remember, if he wins Hillary will not be able to run in four years. If he loses she will be all but assured the nomination.
Come on over and let’s put them through the same pain you feel. Revenge is a wonderful therapy and a dish best served cold.
