Why Obama will repeal Obamacare in 60 days.
As the Loughner Lefties at the New York Times realized, they jumped the shark
in blaming the Arizona Massacre on Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Right, they
smoothly shifted their strategy yesterday again on 1/12.
In a transparent ploy to monkey wrench the 112th Congress' program to
dismantle ObamaCare and other Dem disasters, the NYT is now claiming that
Boehner & Co must "play a less partisan role," and not "allow the House to
slide back into confrontational politics." Translation: Republicans need to
surrender to the Democrats.
And Boehner's response? As Eliza Doolittle said to Professor Henry Higgins,
"Not bloody likely!" Pres. Zero and the Dems (and the Enemedia) are going to get
the shock of their lives when they learn what Boehner has planned for them.
Get ready for this, folks, for it's going to knock the polka dots off your
undies. This is going to make Boehner's bones.
Remember how Reagan made his? On August 3, 1981, 13,000 air traffic
controllers went on strike, shutting down 7,000 flights at the peak of the
summer travel season. They demanded $10,000 a year salary increases and an
extortionate array of increased benefits.
Reagan branded the strike illegal and gave them 48 hours to return to work
or else he would fire them all. They controllers laughed at him for what
they thought was a foolish bluff. Except for 2,000 who did return to work,
joining 3,000 FAA supervisors and 900 military controllers. 80% of flights
went back to normal.
48 hours later on August 5, Reagan fired all 11,000 striking controllers -
and imposed a lifetime ban on rehiring them. Then he had the Federal Labor
Relations Authority disband PATCO - the Professional Air Traffic Controllers
Organization. Not only were the strikers permanently fired, their union
ceased to exist.
That's how to make your bones in Washington. No one ever messed with Reagan
So how is John Boehner going to do it? Hold on to those undies now... He
plans to get Pres. Zero to sign, not veto, a bill to repeal ObamaCare.
Yes, repeal, repeal the whole damn thing, Pres. Zero's pride and joy. Here's the
First, the fallback remains: defund it, refuse to appropriate any money to
implement any of it. But to go for the jugular means repeal. Of course, any
stand-alone repeal bill such as HR 2 passed by the House will be blocked in
the Senate, or if passed faces a certain presidential veto that cannot
possibly be overridden.
eliminate 2,000 pages of ObamaCare legislation: "Effective as of the
enactment of Public Law 111-148, such Act is repealed, and the provisions of
law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act
had not been enacted."
It will be voted on and passed by the House next week. It is only a warning
shot. For its destiny is not to be a stand-alone bill, but an amendment to
two other bills.
These two bills form the sides of a vise in which Dem cojones are
inextricably trapped. They are: the CR (Continuing Resolution) to fund the
government past March 4 when the current CR ends; and the bill to raise the
debt ceiling (call it the DR, the debt raise).
These bills are "must pass" bills - for if they don't pass, the government
shuts down, no checks go out to pay for anybody or anything, and government
debt gets defaulted on.
Thus the repeal strategy: HR 2 will be appended to the next CR and the DR by
the House. That's step one. Step two is for McConnell and DeMint to block
any passage of either in the Senate unless HR 2 is appended.
And to keep those Dem cojones in an ever-tightening vise, both the CR and DR
will be very short term - say 60 days for the former and $100 billion
instead of a trillion for the latter, maybe less. This forces the Dems to
fight the battle for more spending over and over again.
Step three is where it gets really interesting. The "ghost of 1995" haunting
the Pubs is Gingrich forcing just such a government shutdown back then,
which Clinton won and the Gingrich Pubs disastrously lost.
To avoid this happening again, companion legislation will be introduced in
the House specifying those "essential services" of the federal government
that would continue to be paid for at current levels should a CR or DR not
Call it the Essential Services or ES Bill. It will include the standard
popular goodies people demand and the Dems scaremonger with: Social
Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other payments to individuals (but not to
government employees - they get nada).
There is an argument over how long or short the ES list of government
functions should be. Yet there is little need for it to be overly-long if it
is amendable at any time by a simple concurrent resolution.
That way, when the Dems find some cute starving children who will die
because of the heartlessly inhuman Republicans' refusal to spend taxpayers'
money to save them, the Pubs have the option to add the relevant program to
the ES list if the public clamor (not the Dem's) is loud enough.
And of course, the ES list would have no "non-essential" services or
programs like the EPA, or funding for any agency to write and implement any
new regulations whatever.
With the ES Bill, the vise really starts to squeeze. How will Harry Reid
explain he opposes the ES Bill and would rather have a full government
shutdown instead; that he would rather keep ObamaCare on life support rather
than have seniors get their Social Security checks or Medicare payments? How
will Pres. Zero?
In other words, the ES Bill puts the onus, fault, blame, and responsibility
for a government shutdown on the Dems - not on Boehner & Co. Both Boehner
and McConnell believe that there are enough Senate Dems wanting to keep
their seats in 2012 to vote for the ES Bill, and the HR 2-appended CR & DR
Which means they will be on Pres. Zero's desk for his signature or veto. If he
doesn't sign them, all government services stop, pretty much immediately,
and the government starts defaulting on Treasury interest payments. If he
only signs the ES Bill, the same thing happens save for continued funding
only for "essential services."
Boehner is betting Pres. Zero will buckle and sign the HR 2-appended CR & DR
bills. With that, ObamaCare ceases to exist as if it never happened.
If he vetoes them and just signs the ES bill, Boehner still wins. Government
has been truncated to "essential services" at a stroke, and now the whole
debate is what government programs are "essential" or not, with the Dems on
the defensive in the debate. This is orders of magnitude better than
defunding one program at a time.
And if he vetoes all three, shutting the government down just to save
ObamaCare, he gets the full and total blame for the shutdown -- a shutdown
that would leave vast swathes of government programs and agencies in ruins.
Once that happens, millions of Americans would discover two amazing things:
that they can get along just fine without all these Federal programs and
agencies - and with the government out of the way, they have innumerable
opportunities to get a job or start a business they didn't have with the
government in the way.
Oh, yes - a shutdown of course disintegrates the implementation of any part
of ObamaCare, so it's useless to resist, Mr. President, it's best to cut
your losses and sign, not veto.
If Boehner pulls this off, it doesn't just make his bones - he will be the
King of Washington DC. Pres. Zero will be castrated. President Eunuch. His only
possible hope for 2012 will be to work with the House and Senate Republicans
in creating an environment for solid economic recovery that he can take
So... the trillion dollar question is: does Boehner have the stones to make
Until this repeal strategy emerged, all the talk was about trading raising
the debt ceiling for a bunch of budget cuts. That's peanuts compared to
zeroing out ObamaCare, which will save hundreds of billions by that alone.
Further, individual budget cuts, Boehner is advised, will be far more of a
political liability. Remember how Tim Coburn got wasted (even by Fox News!)
for opposing the $4 billion entitlement given to the 9/11 "first responders"
by the Lame Schmucks? That's just a hint, Boehner is being warned, of what's
to come with attempts to cut the budget a bite at a time.
Far better, and far more likely of success, to go for the gold, run for the
roses, make your bones doing what you were elected to do: Repeal, not just
defund, ObamaCare. Repeal it in less than sixty days from now - by
The final decision hasn't been made, but Boehner, Cantor and the House
leadership are edging up to it. They need all the encouragement and backup
they can get. Let's give it to them. Let's make our bones too.

George Washington statue is hidden at the MLK rally in Columbia , SC
The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.
I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this picture of the MLK Day rally in Columbia , South Carolina yesterday. This rally was sponsored by the NAACP and they said that they covered the statue because they “didn’t want to offend anyone”. Really? George Washington is the father of this nation. How is he offensive to anyone? Can you imagine what would happen if we covered the statue of Dr. King on President’s Day? Of course, this disgusting display of anti-Americanism wasn’t covered at all by the national media and only the local paper in Columbia had a little piece on it. It has been covered a little by the blog-world and I think the word needs to get out to the general public that this is what the NAACP is all about…..militant, hateful and racist. In doing this, they disrespected Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I bet he would be equally disgusted. Awful.
THIS SHOULD OFFEND AT LEAST TWO GROUPS THAT HAVE NO SENSE OF HUMOR.........................He was having a few beers, when a short, well dressed, and obviously gay man walked in and sat beside him. After three or four beers, the gay man got the courage to say a few words to the big black man.. Leaning over towards him, he whispered, "Do you want a blow job?"
At the end of a tiny deserted bar in downtown Detroit sat a huge black man.
At this, the massive black man leaped up with fire in his eyes, and smacked the crap out of the gay man, knocking him swiftly off his stool. He proceeded to beat him all the way out of the bar, before leaving him bruised and battered in the parking lot, and returning to his seat.
Amazed, the bartender quickly brought over another beer to the black man, and said, "I've never seen you react like that. " What did he say to you?"
"I don't know," the black man replied. "Something about a job."
Muslim Union cuts benefits for martyrs
Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike next Monday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife. Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement.
The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death would be cut by 25% this February from 72 to 60. A company spokesman said increases in recent years in the number of suicide bombings have resulted in a shortage of virgins in the afterlife.
The suicide bombers' union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs ( or B.O.O.M. ) responded with a statement saying the move was unacceptable to its members and called for strike vote. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, "Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don't ask for much in return, but to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth".
Speaking from his shed in Tipton in the West Midlands , Al Qaeda chief executive Osama bin Laden explained, "I sympathize with our workers' concerns, but Al Qaeda is simply not in a position to meet their demands. They are simply not accepting the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace. Thanks to Western depravity, there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife. It's a straight choice between reducing expenditures or laying people off. I don't like cutting benefits, but I'd hate to have to tell 3,000 of my staff that they won't be able to blow themselves up."
Spokespersons for the union in the North East of England, Ireland , Wales , and the entire Australian continent stated that the change would not hurt their membership as there are few virgins in their areas anyway.
According to some industry sources, the recent drop in the number of suicide bombings has been attributed to the emergence of Scottish singing star, Susan Boyle. Many Muslim jihadists now know what a virgin looks like and have reconsidered their benefit packages.
Apparently President obama thinks that putting hearts and butterflies on the new stamp will
make most people not realize that the rest is Arabic and probably not something we want to support.
New Stamp - the second one!!!
President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 44-Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp.
REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.
All you have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!"
To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !

Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison? To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him. Trouble was, he didn't invest their money. As time rolled on he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors. Finally there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going.
Next thing you know Madoff is one of the most hated men in America and he is off to jail.
Some of you know this. But not enough of you.. Madoff did to his investors what the government has been doing to us for over 70 years with Social Security. There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes, except that one was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges and status in spite of their actions.
Do you need a side-by-side comparison here? Well here's a nifty little chart.BERNIE MADOFFM-Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.
SS-Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a "Trust Fund" (Lock Box) and made available later.
M-Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in the Hamptons and yachts
SS-Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians transfer it to the General Revenue Fund and use it for general spending and vote buying.
M-When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors.
SS-When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the older geezers.
M-When Madoff's scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New investors won't give him any more cash.
SS-When Social Security runs out of money the politicians try to force the taxpayers to send them some more; or they cancel S/S to all those who paid into it.Bernie Madoff is in jail.
Politicians remain in Washington .. with fat medical and retirement benefits.

It is worth the viewing. This new Congressman was an extremely popular
commander in Iraq. He was forced to retire because during an intense combat
action a few of his men were captured. At the same time his men had
captured one of the guys who were with the Iraqis who captured his men.
Knowing that time was crucial and his interrogators were not getting
anywhere with the prisoner COL West took matters into his own hands. He
burst into the room and demanded thru an interpreter that the prisoner tell
him where his men were being taken. The prisoner refused so COL West took
out his pistol and placed it into the prisoner's crotch and fired. Then the
COL told the prisoner that the next shot would not miss. So the prisoner
said he would show where the American service members were being taken. The
Americans were rescued. Some one filed a report on incorrect handling of
prisoners. COL West was forced to retire. COL West was just elected in
November 2010 to Congress from Florida. During the elections he was part of
a panel on how to handle or how to relate to Muslims. You will see his
