Retired U.S. Marine Opens Can of WHOOP-ASS on Democrat Congressman

“If Nancy Pelosi Wants To Find A Swastika, Maybe She Should Look On The Sleeve Of Her Own Arm”

All I have to say to this is… HELL.F#CKING.YEAH. (Found via Ace of Spades HQ]

Spread this far and wide. THIS is how We, the People, stand up to the socialist SCUM in our government!

“I, David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that I was not going to be silent anymore. So, I let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. I was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, I quickly scratched what I wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that I borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before I spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy.”

Mr. Hedrick…  Semper Fi, sir. You make ALL Americans DAMN proud.

Obama Misery Index

Heh, this is great. For all the nutjobs we have here in Michigan (Governor Jenny “and in FIVE years, you’ll be blown away!” Granholm, Senator Debbie “I can feel global warming when I ride in my private jet” Stabenow, Sentor Carl Levin, Congressman John Conyers, etc) we seem to have some good, clever, common sense Republicans as well. My Rep. is the well-known Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI). Now here is Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI) who will now soon hopefully be well-known as well for coming up with the “Obama Misery Index” or “OMI” or “Oh My! Index”. heh

Here is video of GOP congressman Dave Camp from Michigan unveiling the “Obama Misery Index,” or the OMI – “Oh, My Index.” It focuses on the “stunning rise in debt and unemployment”…

You’re Accepting that the State has Jurisdiction Over Your Body

Great point made here, posted by a commenter at Ace of Spades HQ:

What matters is the concept of a government “panel.” Right now, if I want a hip replacement, it’s between me and my doctor; the government does not have a seat at the table. The minute it does, my hip’s needs are subordinate to national hip policy, which in turn is subordinate to macro budgetary considerations. … You’re accepting that the state has jurisdiction over your hip, and your knee, and your prostate and everything else. And once you accept that proposition the fellows who get to make the “ruling” are, ultimately, a death panel.

Why Sarah Palin Pisses Off Elitists

I left this comment at this post at Ace of Spades HQ in response to a comment about Charles Krauthammer once again putting down Sarah Palin:


“We might start by asking Sarah Palin to leave the room. I’ve got nothing against her. She’s a remarkable political talent. But there are no “death panels” in the Democratic health-care bills, and to say that there are is to debase the debate.

We also have to tell the defenders of the notorious Section 1233 of H.R. 3200 that it is not quite as benign as they pretend. To offer government reimbursement to any doctor who gives end-of-life counseling — whether or not the patient asked for it — is to create an incentive for such a chat.”

From CK’s article today. I like CK and usually agree with much of his reasoning. However, I’m growing tired of “triangulation” as an argument and political tool. The inability to get messy and get involved in the fracas is what makes “elites” like Peggy, KP, CBuck, and sometimes CK ineffective when it comes to actually moving people. Nuance is opiate for the elites but emotion based on reasoned intellect gets people motivated and will be the only thing that slays this dragon.

Sarah Palin’s “death-panel” f/b post may well become the turning point of this fight. CK’s attempt to triangulate and nuance the argument it to death, so to speak, can’t change that point.

Here was my response:

I am beginning to believe that the elites — Noonan, Parker, Buckley, Krauthammer, etc — are simply jealous of Sarah Palin. Jealous that an average citizen, without their Ivy League bonafides, has been able to rise to such political success — Mayor, energy industry, Governor — and connect in a way with the American people that these elites have never been able to do. So, instead of treating her as an equal, as she truly has earned through her actions and success, they all still look down upon her as some sort of peon, unworthy of being treated on the same level as their elitist selves.

And the more these elitists attack Sarah Palin, the more people take it as an attack on all average Americans. Considering Sarah Palin broke the mold of what it takes to be successful in politics — she was just some average working mom who got fed up with corruption in politics in her children’s school, so she ran for PTA, then got fed up with the corruption in her city, so ran for Mayor, then got went into the energy industry to make a difference and resigned when she realized she was being used and not given the power to make the difference she wanted, then got fed up with corruption in her State and took on her own political Party and ran for Governor to clean up the State… and succeeded in all those endeavors — ie, don’t need the Ivy League pedigree and all the inside connections and corruption, etc, many Americans see themselves in Sarah Palin. If Barack Obama represented the opportunity for Blacks to rise to success in politics, Sarah Palin represents the opportunity for an average American fed up with politics and wanting to make a difference to rise to success in politics.

I think she tears down the ideology of these elistists that only they can become powerful in politics and only they are worthy to discuss such ideas and policies and ideologies in America. She pisses them off, because she makes them realize that we really don’t need these elitists anymore to explain things to us peons. We can research and understand it on our own.

Thus, the smackdown of Sarah Palin basically represents the elitist smackdown of the rise of average Americans. Elitists know that if average Americans realize that they can figure things out on their own and don’t need to go to elitists to have everything explained to them, then they are deemed irrelevant.

It’s similar to the mass media’s smackdown of the blogosphere, when they were rightfully worried that the rise of the blogosphere — citizen journalism — would make them irrelevant.

D.C. Goes Wee Wee, Obama Goes Wah Wah Wah

I wonder if they teach turns of phrase like this at Community Organizer College:

“There’s something about August going into September where everyone in Washington gets all ‘wee-weed’ up,” the president said.

If that were not bad enough, President Wee-Wee is crying wah wah over his trouble with convincing Americans to support his health care plan:

President Obama took to the conservative airwaves Thursday to charge that Republican leaders are engaged in a vast right-wing conspiracy to kill health care reform in order to repeat the 1994 mid-term takeover of Congress, which followed the defeat of President Clinton’s reform plan.

“I think early on, a decision was made by the Republican leadership that said, ‘Look, let’s not give him a victory, maybe we can have a replay of 1993, ’94, when Clinton came in, he failed on health care and then we won in the mid-term elections and we got the majority. And I think there are some folks who are taking a page out that playbook,” the president said.

Appearing on the Michael Smerconish radio show, Mr. Obama said he would “love to have more Republicans engaged and involved in this process,” but he vowed to win the battle, with or without support from the minority party in Congress.

Ummm, hey Crybaby-in-Chief… the Republicans are engaged and involved in the process. You simply refuse to acknowledge their alternative plans (for example, HERE and HERE) and continuously lie about everyone opposing your single-payer deathcare boondoggle, claiming they want to keep the status quo. That is not the case at all, as there are plenty of Republicans and Conservatives who have suggested alternatives to your proposal of a complete government takeover of health care.

But, keep on wah-wahing and lying and lying and soon enough the American people shall send you wee wee weeing all the way home to Chicago… or Hawai’i… or Kenya, whichever you prefer.
