ObamaCare: Success Beyond Their Wildest Dreams

I keep seeing reports and comments that ObamaCare has failed. It has not failed. It is succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. The only people who believe it has failed are the people who believe ObamaCare was intended to make health care more affordable. That was never the goal. The objective was Cloward-Piven.

The only risk now is that ObamaCare succeeds so effectively that it causes blow-back to the extent that Democrats are adversely affected in the next election.

It looks like some Democrat politicians have too little faith in their Messiah, or place their own selfish job security above the objective of the collective.

Efficient Gun Control That Makes Sense

This is adapted from an email that is circulating on the Interweb, that my dad forwarded to me.

Efficient Gun Control that makes sense. 
  • In 1863 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States. 
  • In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States , who later died from the wound. 
  • In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States. 
  • In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States. 
  • In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States. 
  • In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant. 
  • In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office. 
  • In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office. 
  • In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby's cafeteria. 
  • In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory. 
  • In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service. 
  • In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US . 
  • In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant. 
  • In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung - Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech. 
  • In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others. 
  • In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people. 
  • In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis .   
  • In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school. 
  • The Latest... An angry Democrat shoots 12 at a Navy ship yard.
One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not.  Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives were involved. 
Solution: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.

Note: I did not Snopes this. Maybe some of the claims are false. But like Dan Rather at CBS, the claims may be false, but the narrative is true so it's fair game, right? Oh, who cares? Under Alinsky rules, all's fair.

But here's the deal: 'progressives' seem to judge others by themselves, i.e., "We can't be trusted with guns, so we have to ban guns. They're not safe for anyone." There are two problems with that.
  1. Lots of people can be trusted with guns, and they can do a lot of good in society, especially during the crucial average 20 minutes it takes for a 911 response ("You better not rape me! I called 911!"). Guns prevent a lot of crime just by the perps not knowing who's carrying and who isn't. Violence is prevented with nary a shot being fired. 
  2. Banning guns will not eliminate guns from society. It's 300 year-old technology. That genie is so out of the bottle, and has been for centuries. Best to get a grip, and get real. The world's a dangerous place, and while guns can be dangerous, in responsible hands, guns can actually make the world safer.
I keep a loaded fire extinguisher under my kitchen sink, and a first-aid kit in my medicine cabinet for the same reason I keep a loaded pistol in my (none of your business). Because when seconds count, help can arrive in minutes.

Check One: Self-Serving Bald-Faced Liar, or Clueless, Pathetic Tool?

This morning, Dillon Honcoop asked the question on the KGMI Morning Show, "Barack Obama, apology accepted?"

Let's see... the serial lie that we could keep our health care or our doctor if we like... period - has turned out to be patently false for literally millions of Americans. Barack Obama forcefully repeated that lie throughout his campaign. I see only two possibilities:
  1. he's a self-serving bald-faced liar or 
  2. he's a clueless, pathetic tool. 
Either way, it got him re-elected, and his signature legislation passed.

Now that the chickens are coming home to roost, and people are discovering their loss of liberty, financial security and prosperity, he thinks he can make it right by saying, "Oops! Sorry, my bad!" Apology accepted? Not bloody likely!

The only way for him to make us whole would be for him to resign the presidency that he retained under false pretenses, and for congress to repeal ObamaCare, and start all over with the truth this time. That's also not bloody likely.

BOHICA Folks, You've Earned It!

Q: Can this problem be solved with more freedom, instead of less? ~ Penn Jillette

A: HELL NO! It cannot! Our problems can only be solved with fewer choices and dictatorial 'solutions' handed down by people who 'know better' than we do! ~ Whatcom County Voters

I think about half of the voters in yesterday's election have never known what it was like to live in a free country. It was a wonderful place! Sure, we had our problems, but we were at liberty to work them out for ourselves, make our own choices in life, and adjust our own behavior if we guessed wrong. Live and let live, we didn't try to force anyone else to do what WE thought was right.

Well, you have made your choice, and you deserve to get what you voted for, good and hard. BOHICA, folks, you've earned it!
