A New Strategy

“I don’t want us to do something just for the sake of politics that doesn’t solve the problem,” Obama told reporters Wednesday night aboard Air Force One.

Is he talking about his Health Care Reform?

Cap & Trade?

Financial Reform?

Or Illegal Immigration?

Or All of the Above?

It was Illegal Immigration, but it would be nearly impossible to tell with this President since everything is done for the ideology and nothing else.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the Democrats’ leading advocate for immigration reform, has said he voted for health care reform on the understanding that Obama and congressional Democrats would move a major immigration bill.

“On one hand you are not going to vote because you don’t believe people you voted for are doing a good enough job,” Gutierrez said. “Then you say, ‘I got to vote, because the enemy is so mean and vindictive, I got to get out there.'”

“For Democrats it is critical they can deliver if they want to continue nurturing the support they want from this community,” said Clarissa Martinez De Castro, National Council of La Raza immigration and national campaigns director.

By the Way, La Raza, “The Race” advocates Aztlan, the repatriation of parts of the Southwest with Mexico because they were stolen by the White Man.

But the politicians don’t have the political will to do anything.

Which is precisely the problem.

And yelling “racist” and “Nazi” is all the proponents of Illegal Immigration can seem to muster.

And the Fifth Column/Ministry of Truth can’t get their facts straight, because they don’t want to.

And calls for self-righteous boycotts.

The All-Star Game is apparently here in July (I don’t follow sports much so I had no idea).

And just how far are the Democrats willing to go to win in November?

Well, since The End Justifies the Means, how about a new State, full of hispanics and 2 new Senators?

Faced with losing Congress, the Democrats want to make Puerto Rico a state whether the people want it or not. The Democrats would get two new senators, new congressmen and a campaign issue.

Throw in voting representation for D.C., amnesty for illegals and voting for felons, all items on the Democrats’ agenda, and in their cookbook you have a recipe for Democratic majorities as far as the eye can see. It’s a plan to retain control at all costs and counteract a Tea Party movement that threatens to throw their big-government liberalism on the ash heap of political history.

You also have the added bonus of energizing Hispanic activists all too eager with administration help to paint the GOP as racists, particularly in the light of the new Arizona law that does nothing but say that since the feds dropped the ball on border security, Arizona will pick it up and run with it.

A scheduled Thursday vote in the House of Representatives on HR 2499, dubbed the Puerto Rico Democracy Act, was designed to rig the game in favor of Puerto Rican statehood, something native Puerto Ricans have rejected in the last three self-determination elections. Puerto Ricans like their current status just fine. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leaders do not.

HR 2499 would not make Puerto Rico a state. It would split the past voting process into the two parts. The first would be an up-or-down vote on whether Puerto Ricans simply want to change their island’s status from a commonwealth in association with the U.S. instead of an up-or-down vote on statehood in the past.

Democrats hope enough people favor independence or statehood to cobble together a majority in favor of status change. Once the first hurdle is cleared, a second vote will determine what the new status should be with the choices being commonwealth, statehood or independence.

This is where the Democrats’ subversion of the democratic process begins. The second vote winner is determined by a mere plurality of one of the choices. Under this plan, if statehood just finishes in the lead, it wins, even without a clear majority.

It gets better. Under HR 2499, nonresident Puerto Ricans living in the 50 states could vote in the new referendum. According to the U.S. Census, there are more eligible Puerto Ricans living outside the proposed 51st state than in it.

So native Puerto Ricans could vote no on statehood while their mainland cousins could make it a yes. In case the vote is still no, HR 2499 requires a new referendum every eight years or until it becomes a yes in favor of statehood.(IBD)

Meanwhile, Al “Chicken Little” Gore just bought a 8.875 Million Dollar 9 Bathroom seaside Mansion, with multiple fireplaces, in California.

I guess Global Warming fraud does pay.

That’s some “carbon footprint” there Al!

And this as Campaign Barack said this on Financial reform:

We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.

Oh well. I didn’t really need all that money I earn anyway. I’ll just keep “fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy” and let Obama decide how to spend what I earn. It’s not like I have a family to provide for – that’s the government’s job – and my family has to be equal to everyone else’s, right? That’s fair. Fair for Obama’s Wall Street buddies, teacher union buddies and trial lawyer buddies that helped him to get elected.

And now he’s pandering to the Hispanic voters too.

Like we found out during the campaign, Obama likes to spread YOUR wealth around. Especially to people who vote for him.

I wonder if this applies to himself, after all he and Michelle made $5 Million dollars last year.

Oh, and the UN just put Iran on a Commission.

The Commission on the Status of Women, which is “dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women,” according to its website.

No, this is not a late April fools joke.

Buried 2,000 words deep in a U.N. press release distributed Wednesday on the filling of “vacancies in subsidiary bodies,” was the stark announcement: Iran, along with representatives from 10 other nations, was “elected by acclamation,” meaning that no open vote was requested or required by any member states — including the United States.

The U.S. currently holds one of the 45 seats on the body, a position set to expire in 2012. The U.S. Mission to the U.N. did not return requests for comment on whether it actively opposed elevating Iran to the women’s commission.

Iran’s election comes just a week after one of its senior clerics declared that women who wear revealing clothing are to blame for earthquakes, a statement that created an international uproar — but little affected their bid to become an international arbiter of women’s rights.

“Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes,” said the respected cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi. (FOX)

And they got this post after they couldn’t get on the UN Human Rights Commission!

So I guess the President’s strategy is to do nothing, as long as it works for your ideology. Screw the consequences.

And when it is for your ideology, The End Justifies the Means.

Now doesn’t that make you feel safer and more secure in the knowledge that he has America’s and the American people’s best interests at heart…. 😦

Just don’t make too much money, want to secure the border, or be in control of your life and responsible for your own actions.

That’s the government’s job! 🙂

Otherwise, you’re just a greedy, mean, selfish, racist.

And you should be ashamed of yourself!

What Would Mexico Do?

Before I get into the fun, how about the silly:

Rallies protesting against Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigrants are planned in more than 70 cities across the U.S. this weekend.

Protesters say the law, which requires authorities to question people about their immigration status if there is any reason to suspect they are in the country illegally, is already seeing challenges to block it.

The upcoming May Day rallies will pile pressure on President Barack Obama to overhaul immigration laws in the election this year.

Should someone point out that May Day, is a Communist Holiday?? 🙂

******

So what does Mexico, that holier-than-thou country to the south, through which they come and from which they largely come.

You get caught being an Illegal Alien in Mexico, you have 3 basic choices:

1) Pay off the Federales and go on your way (“be of economic or social interest”)

2) Go to Jail, it’s a Felony you know…

3) Get beat up or shot dead.

That’s it.

But don’t worry, pulling over a car for speeding THEN wondering why there are 15 people stuffed into a Ford Taurus is Racists and insensitive!! 😦

Or that drug cartel shoot-out on the highway where innocent people are caught in the middle of it.

Or the Drop houses with 50 illegals and several armed Coyotes are stashed in family neighborhoods.

Doing anything about that because Washington is too busy pandering to them is racist! 😦

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has accused Arizona of opening the door “to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement.” But Arizona has nothing on Mexico when it comes to cracking down on illegal aliens. While open-borders activists decry new enforcement measures signed into law in “Nazi-zona” last week, they remain deaf, dumb or willfully blind to the unapologetically restrictionist policies of our neighbors to the south.

– The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?

– If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.

Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in our country (see, for example, President Obama’s illegal alien aunt — a fugitive from deportation for eight years who is awaiting a second decision on her previously rejected asylum claim).

Law enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.

Ready to show your papers? Mexico’s National Catalog of Foreigners tracks all outside tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens’ identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.

All of these provisions are enshrined in Mexico’s Le General de Población (General Law of the Population) and were spotlighted in a 2006 research paper published by the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Security Policy. There’s been no public clamor for “comprehensive immigration reform” in Mexico, however, because pro-illegal alien speech by outsiders is prohibited.

But don’t worry, we in Arizona are the mean racist arseholes!! 😦

Noncitizens cannot “in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.” In fact, a plethora of Mexican statutes enacted by its congress limit the participation of foreign nationals and companies in everything from investment, education, mining and civil aviation to electric energy and firearms. Foreigners have severely limited private property and employment rights (if any).

The Red Cross has protested rampant Mexican police corruption, intimidation and bribery schemes targeting illegal aliens there for years. Mexico didn’t respond by granting mass amnesty to illegal aliens, as it is demanding that we do. It clamped down on its borders even further. In late 2008, the Mexican government launched an aggressive deportation plan to curtain illegal Cuban immigration and human trafficking through Cancun. (Michelle Malkin)

So when foreigner complained about the incivility of the Mexican government, they just got even nastier about it.

They don’t take any crap from anyone.

But they are more than willing to join with the Pro-Illegal crowd in the U.S. to foist off their excess population on us.

It’s the second largest income for the country, patronage from illegals in this country sending money back to Mexico.

Why would they want to change that.

And we’re still the Nazi’s.

Funny That…. 😦

Hipócritas.

Can’t you feel the Liberal “moral outrage” from here…

The Frenzy Continues

“Big Sis” (Homeland Security Secretary and former AZ Governor  Janet Napolitano) declared that over the past 15 months, federal law enforcement initiatives have made the border more secure than in any other time in history, the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS reports in Wednesday editions.

Well, that’s it, we’re all 100% safe and secure because Big Sis Janet Napolitano says so.

Anyone else want to reach for a Barf Bag? 😦

“Now suddenly if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to get harassed — that’s something that could potentially happen,” Obama said of the Arizona measure. “That’s not the right way to go.”(Obama in Iowa)

Not under the law, but that doesn’t matter. The truth is not at issue here.

Race-baiting and fearmongering is.

The DNC even sent out a video trying to rally “woman, black, and hispanics” to Democrats cause.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 60% of voters nationwide favor such a law, while 31% are opposed. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans support the law along with 62% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Democratic voters are evenly divided on the measure.

But, yet our Fifth Column newspaper The Arizona Republic (aka the Repulsive) regurgitates sobs stories from hispanics who are afraid of being arrested for merely being hispanic.

The hysterical frenzy of the Left and their politically correct violence is what the media wants to see and you to hear.

If you support the law you must be for rounding all latinos and checking them one-by one.

Vans will roam hispanic neighborhood and go “Oh there’s one!”  “Your paper’s please” (complete with cheap German accent).

Mind you, you point out what the law ACTUALLY says, and they blow past you and start talking about racism.

It’s all THEY want to talk about.

ILLEGAL is meaningless to them.

Securing the border against the Human Smugglers, Coyotes, is not a concern.

The 1.3 Million pounds of just Marijuana last year coming through Tucson is immaterial.

The gun battles on the streets and the highways.

The murder of American Citizens is not worth talking about.

It’s only about race.

And true to the modern Liberal, no matter what, if you disagree with them, you’re a Racist.

End of Discussion.

This is how we have political and social discourse now.

It’s very short.

I, the evil non-liberal explain my point.

“You’re a Racist”

End of Discussion.

Isn’t that just wonderful.

And the Fifth Column/Ministry of Truth Media will play it up for ratings and their own agenda.

Do I think the law will survive, No.

The liberal judges out there will not rule on the merits of the law or the Constitution, they will rule simply on their own agenda.

Even “Sanctuary City” Phil is getting to the act. Filing suit against the state for messing with his peeps.

Then there’s the violence.

Remember when the Tea Partiers were going to (and still are) the violent psychopathic terrorists who were just going to go postal all over everyone and were violent, gun-toting hicks?

Well, guess where all the violence is coming from, Liberals.

Near Riots, Vandalism, throwing objects at people.

Oh, and the word “nazi” every 2 milliseconds.

But the Tea partiers are the violent ones.

Where’s my barf bag?

LAURA INGRAHAM, GUEST HOST: In the “Weekdays with Bernie” segment tonight: As we told you, thousands of people in Phoenix gathered over the weekend to protest a new state immigration law. The crowds got rowdy at times. Check out this video of protesters throwing plastic bottles at police, or this where a man with a camera was attacked by one of the protest organizes. The mainstream media largely ignored these incidents, a stark contrast to the big headlines made by largely peaceful Tea Party protesters.

Joining us now from Miami, Fox News analyst Bernie Goldberg, author of the book “A Slobbering Love Affair.” And Bernie, why are we surprised when we have…

BERNIE GOLDBERG, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: I’m not.

INGRAHAM: …some thugs out there in Phoenix over the weekend causing trouble. And we don’t know who is responsible, but there was thuggish behavior. Meanwhile, still hearing about the Tea Parties that were largely peaceful, of course.

Click here to watch the segment!

GOLDBERG: I’m not surprised. If you understand one fairly obvious truth, everything else really fits right into place. And that is that if the lame-stream media basically sympathizes with your cause, they’re going to treat you one way, and if they don’t sympathize with your cause, they’re going to treat you another way.

So if one idiot at a Tea Party rally throws a stink bomb at a cop, the story is going to be played basically as the guy throwing the stink bomb, there was an unruly crowd and all of that. But if you have the pictures that you just showed with people throwing bottles at cops and all of that, it’s going to be portrayed as a mainly, largely peaceful rally.

(or righteous indignation against the racist pigs!)

INGRAHAM: Yes, we — we look at that review, whether from CNN or some of the other networks, and they report on the protests, angry protests, because of basically the mean immigration law. So the focus turns to the discriminatory law and why that is compelling people to act out on their, you know, their firmly and rightly held beliefs.

GOLDBERG: That’s absolutely true. I read a lot of the stuff, and that’s what they do. Even when they acknowledge that there were some people in the crowd that were unruly, they portray them as victims of the people who passed the law. They were only unruly because they’re frustrated at the law.

There was an old song years and years ago that said accentuate the positive, de-emphasize the negative. Well, if the lame-streams agree with your cause, then they accentuate the positive and de-emphasize the negative. But if they don’t — and they don’t with the Tea Party people — then they do it just the other way around. They emphasize the negative and de-emphasize the positive.

The Agenda is The Agenda and let nothing get in the way of your “social justice” (aka do what I say when i say it because I say it no questions asked or even considered).

We are the kidnapping capital of the US.

We have drop house and human smuggling operations going on all over the state.

But the Illegal Aliens, Coyotes, and Drug Cartels are the victims!

Welcome to ObamaLand.

But at least Big Sis is looking out for you!

The Battle of The Rages

While, they kind, non-violent, loving Liberals are smearing hateful Nazi symbols all over the Capitol proclaiming their moral superiority and politically correct love for everyone who isn’t a White Male.

But they aren’t the racists…oh no…

They don’t want to divide people by race…oh no…

They aren’t hateful and violent like Tea Partiers….oh no… 😦

Arizona’s new law is a reminder that the states formed the federal government and not the other way around. One of the federal government’s functions was to provide for the security of the new country against foreign enemies and intruders. At this, and particularly under this administration, it has failed miserably.

There are 460,000 illegal aliens in Arizona, a number that increases daily, placing an undue burden on the state’s schools, hospitals and law enforcement. Arizona has a window seat to an illegal invasion and on the escalating and violent drug war in Mexico that has put American lives and society at risk.

On March 27, the consequences of a porous and unprotected border claimed the life of Arizona rancher Robert Krentz after he radioed his brother that he was checking out someone he believed to be an illegal immigrant.

Incredibly, his murderer escaped to a pronghorn antelope area that the Interior Department of Secretary Ken Salazar had placed off-limits to U.S. Border Patrol agents.

So unserious is the administration about protecting the border that it has allowed a bureaucratic turf battle between Interior and Homeland Security to let 4.3 million acres of wilderness area become a haven and highway for illegal aliens, drug smugglers, human traffickers and potential terrorists. (IDB)

But they saved the Antelope!

Awww….isn’t that so warm and fuzzy…

Like the warmness of a drug dealers gun having a shoot out on the highway.

Or the drunk illegal that just killed a family.

Or the drop house with 50-100 illegals stashed in their as effective hostages until someone pay the Coyote.

Human Smuggling is ok with Liberals, BUT DAMN STRAIGHT WE’LL SAVED THE ANTELOPE!

I found this on The Daily Caller by Jedediah Bila:

I had a horrible nightmare last night that America was being run by a far-left ideologue that was spending our money like it grew on trees, cowering before dictators, and promoting government dependency while self-sufficiency and personal responsibility went by the wayside. Oh wait, never mind. 🙂

President Obama has once again championed political correctness in his criticism of Arizona’s new law to crack down on illegal immigration. As reported by Fox News, “The law makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It also requires local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants; allows lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws; and makes it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them.” Obama responded by calling the law “misguided,” insisting that the failure of the federal government to handle immigration matters responsibly will yield “ . . . irresponsibility by others . . . That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans . . . ”

The federal government has had plenty of time to secure our nation from the threats of illegal immigration. Should Arizona sit back and hush up while a few more gangs invade its borders and endanger its citizens? You know, while the federal government takes care of its real priorities, like enforcing a government overhaul of the health care industry and inventing creative ways to disguise job-crippling energy taxes as some sort of green campaign? Kudos to Arizona for stepping up to the plate and doing a job it shouldn’t have to do. In fact, a recent Rasmussen telephone survey reveals that 70% of likely voters in Arizona approve of the legislation.

The important issue here is political correctness. Of course, everyone who supports the legislation has already been labeled racist. I wish the term terrorist rolled off the tongues of the Left with half as much ease as racial profiling. Somehow the crime of being in this country illegally is of far less concern to them than the act of asking someone to show his or her ID. Does the twenty-three-year-old who looks more like seventeen and is asked to show ID at the corner liquor store face age profiling, too? Let me not give them any ideas.

So, much like every liberty-loving American who doesn’t like Barack Obama’s Alinsky-inspired redistributive agenda, security-seeking Arizonians who support the state’s new legislation regarding illegal immigration fit the liberal definition of racist. The fact that the law prohibits officers from conducting an immigration check on the sole basis of one’s nationality or race is, of course, ignored by the Left.

It is imperative that Americans don’t get bullied into silence as a result of the leftist tactic of calling all forms of dissent racist, as the consequences would be dangerous. Such silence would lead to the destruction of our first amendment rights and a passive acceptance of potentially-disastrous policies. Also, tossing the word racist around with persistent ease would yield apathy among Americans when legitimate acts of racism arise that should be condemned. When writing about feminism, I’ve always said that the greatest disservice you can do to a female politician is to criticize or not criticize her policies due to her gender. The same applies to race.

The federal government hasn’t done its job of protecting Arizona. Legal immigration is something that has always been welcomed in this country, as America embraces the productivity and contributions of those from around the world who seek the opportunity our nation fosters. However, the illegal alternative cannot and should not be tolerated.

The bottom line is that the laws of our country should never be compromised in the name of political correctness or any other convenient term that aims to preserve some distorted ideological doctrine of “fairness.” A far-left friend of mine asked me this yesterday: “So, if a group of white, thirty-year-old women were doing something they shouldn’t be doing in Manhattan, and you got stopped by the cops to show ID because they thought you were acting suspiciously, wouldn’t you be offended?” My answer was a resounding no. If I were innocent, then what’s the big deal in flashing my ID? If anything, I’d be grateful that the cops weren’t taking any chances with anyone. And if I were guilty, the proper term isn’t “unfair.” It’s “caught.”

A crime is a crime. Security is of paramount importance. And if that means someone may get a little offended every now and then, so be it.

You’re just a hateful Nazi if you disagree with the Left.

Now that’s the best way to start a reasoned debate on the issue, don’t you think?? 😦

The New Crisis

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.”- White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel

Today was going to be the day when the Democrats sprung Part II of their Cap & Trade takeover.

Instead, because of the uproar over Illegal Immigration the Democrats want to pander to their base, Latinos, first.

So here comes the Amnesty Train roaring down the tracks.

That light at the end of the tunnel is the train!

Only this time, the vitriol over you being a racist if you are not for complete Amnesty is going to be even more pronounced.

After all, the Democrats really only have a one page playbook

FEAR

INTIMIDATION

CHARGES OF RACISM

That’s it.

And the pandering will be fierce.

The intimidation will be even more so.

You wouldn’t want to be a racist now would you?

Of course, you’re already one if you disagree with President Obama to begin win.

You stupid, ignorant, racist teabagging hick! 😦

So, the Democrats will use Latinos to pump up their base for November.

Not that they weren’t planning it anyhow, it’s just now they can puff up their chest in righteous indignation more now.

And the Fifth Column/Ministry of truth will be happy to go along with it.

And “Sanctuary City” Phil, the Mayor of Phoenix is having a great getting his mug on TV and proclaiming how outraged he his.

This the man who never met an ILLEGAL ALIEN he didn’t want to abuse for political purposes. And was a great ally of Former Governor Napalitano who now as Homeland Security Secretary is the Fed that said always complained about in her “It’s a Federal problem” pronouncements.

Only, she does even less now.

So, I agree with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) when he says it’s a “cynicial ploy”.

I would just add, with Democrats (and politicians in general) when isn’t?

So lots of chest thumping to come.

But fundamentally, the only thing Democrats want is Amnesty. (Code Phrase: Comprehensive Immigration Reform)

Notice how Liberals use “Comprehensive” when they about screw everyone comprehensively?

Comprehensive Health Care Reform

Comprehensive Financial Reform

Comprehensive Energy Policy

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

They want those 20 million new voters so they can steam roll their way to history and straight over you.

And you’re racist if you don’t want them to. 😦

Unbending the Curve

Since the Latino Activist and The Illegals are focused on Armegeddon and the Nazi Holocaust because Illegal mean Illegal.

I want to focus on a real Armageddon coming down the pike, ObamaCare.

IBD:  An analysis from an objective source — Medicare’s actuary — says ObamaCare will increase costs and relies on projected savings that may be unrealistic. Now isn’t that a surprise?

The Obama administration has been trying hard to find good news in a new report by government experts on the outlook for the health care economy, now at 17% of GDP and continuing to climb.

To HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the analysis confirms that “the Affordable Health Care Act will cover more Americans and strengthen Medicare by cracking down on waste, fraud and abuse.”

More neutral observers will notice that the administration no longer talks about “bending the cost curve” in health care. The analysis released last week by Medicare’s Office of the Actuary tells why. It looks ahead 10 years and reaches two conclusions about the new health care overhaul: More people will be covered, and costs will continue to soar. The cost curve is unbending still.

But since costs wasn’t why The Democrats passed ObamaCare to begin with…

Chief Actuary Richard Foster pegs ObamaCare’s added costs (that is, beyond what was projected without the overhaul in effect) at $311 billion over 10 years. That’s just under 1% of overall expected health care spending, and administration officials are calling that sum a small price to pay for adding 34 million Americans to public or private insurance rolls.

But the president had set a goal of extending coverage without adding any new cost. More to the point, the problem of runaway costs that plagued the pre-overhaul health care system has not been solved. As Foster points out, much of what ObamaCare proposes to reduce the nation’s health tab, especially in Medicare, is politically unrealistic.

The overhaul projects a net decrease in projected Medicare spending (more accurately, a reduction in future spending increases) of more than $400 billion. But Congress has talked this way before and has been notably timid about pulling the trigger.

Under a 1997 law, for instance, a 21% cut in Medicare reimbursements to physicians was supposed to go into effect on April 1. But Congress two weeks later put the cut on hold as part of a bill to extend unemployment benefits. As usual, mobilized doctors and frightened seniors got their way.

This pattern of avoiding politically difficult spending cuts has been going on pretty much since the start of Medicare. ObamaCare promises that this behavior will somehow change. That would be a miracle, and actuaries tend to stick with more mundane probabilities.
And like any good actuary would be, Foster is unimpressed with the cost-reduction side of the ObamaCare equation. He says “the long-term viability of the Medicare … reduction is doubtful.”

Nothing in Foster’s report should come as a surprise, since it was clear from an early stage in the health care debate that the Democratic Party had one overriding goal — universal coverage or something close to it — with cost-reduction secondary.

The cost-cutting promises served mainly to obscure the actual price tag of the overhaul in future taxes and deficits. They were a means to the end of extending insurance, and to that degree they worked — as politics. But as policy they are empty promises.

Foster’s study is further evidence of how badly ObamaCare missed the point. All along, high cost has been the fundamental problem with American health care; the lack of universal coverage was only one symptom. To put it another way, the problem of coverage would have been solved long ago, largely by the private sector, if the medical tab in the U.S. were more like that in other advanced nations.

At 17% of GDP and rising, the nation’s health care economy is a case study in how to structure incentives, price signals (if any) and buying power to maximize inflation. Those who receive services hardly ever pay for them directly, and prices are rarely revealed, much less advertised.

Providers long ago learned the power of lobbying to keep the money rolling in and to defeat any attempts at fiscal restraint. What was billed as “reform,” in other words, actually reformed nothing.

But gave the government the in-road to taking it over completely, which was the plan all along…

And while the full effects of ObamaCare might not be felt until Tax Day 2014, the promise of free health care to millions of Americans will begin to prove hollow long before then.

Already Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., says the public option might not be dead if insurance companies do not offer competitive rates within the exchanges. And Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, has revived a proposal that gives the secretary of health and human services the power to review premiums and block any rate increase bound to be “unreasonable.”

America’s primary care system is already under stress. Low reimbursement rates, bureaucratic paperwork and long hours are driving family physicians out of medicine and pushing new doctors into specialized practices. Half a century ago, one in two doctors practiced general medicine. Today, 7 in 10 specialize.

And the gap is growing. A mere 1 in 12 medical-school graduates now head to family medicine. In 2009, the American Academy of Family Physicians warned that we’d be short 40,000 family doctors in a decade, if present trends continued. Today, medical schools produce one primary care doctor for every two who are needed.

ObamaCare will add strain to an already burdened system. The new bill seeks to increase the load on family doctors while holding the line on costs by putting price controls on government insurance plans. In due course, price controls on private plans will be inevitable.

We saw them come into effect on April 1 in Massachusetts, when the state Division of Insurance rejected 235 of 274 premium increases proposed by insurers for individuals and small businesses. The rate increases — ranging from 8% to 32% — were deemed excessive.

The combination of increased coverage and emphasis on primary care, experts say, will increase demand for primary care docs by as much as 29%, or 44,000 doctors, over the next 15 years.

But just as demand is increasing, doctors are making plans to exit. A 2009 survey by medical recruiters Merritt Hawkins found that 10% of respondents were planning to leave medicine within three years.

Another poll of physicians conducted in 2009 by Investor’s Business Daily found that 45% of doctors would consider early retirement if ObamaCare passed.

So higher demand and lower supply equals what exactly? 🙂

The LAW of the Left

Gov. Brewer signed the Immigration Bill.

So naturally, a hellfire storm of Latino “activists” have start swarm and the Liberal left  is all appalled by our “racism” and “racial profiling”.

The Politically Correct have gone mad.

These are the same people who will kiss the ass of any Muslim so as not to offend them, ever.

It has to be about Race.

It can’t be about being Illegal.

The left can’t even call them that.

The Orwellian self-censoring of even the concept of  “Illegal Immigration” is so far gone that the Left doesn’t even understand the concept, thus they don’t understand the anger.

Gee, where have we had this experience lately?? 😦

But their anger at our political incorrectness is also missed by them.

They are righteously indignant about our political incorrectness.

Yet, the political courage when you’re running for election (since she was appointed when Illegal Lover now Homeland Security Secretary Former Gov Napolitano left to join her new meal ticket out of the morass she left) to piss of the holy untouchable “latino vote”.

Problem, she’s not really.

She’s just pissing off the Liberal Left’s Latino Activist and Mob Vote which wasn’t going to vote for a Republican anyhow.

Crimestop is a Newspeak term taken from the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. It means to rid oneself of unwanted thoughts, i.e. thoughts that interfere with the ideology of the Party. This way, a person avoids committing thoughtcrime.

In the novel, we hear about crimestop through the eyes of protagonist Winston Smith:
“     The mind should develop a blind spot whenever a dangerous thought presented itself. The process should be automatic, instinctive. Crimestop, they called it in Newspeak.

He set to work to exercise himself in crimestop. He presented himself with propositions — ‘the Party says the earth is flat’, ‘the party says that ice is heavier than water’ — and trained himself in not seeing or not understanding the arguments that contradicted them.

Orwell also describes crimestop from the perspective of Emmanuel Goldstein in the book The Theory and Practice Of Oligarchical Collectivism:
“     Crimestop means the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction. Crimestop, in short, means protective stupidity.

So ILLEGAL ALIENS are “undocumented” and when they actually mention legal status like the outraged Latino Leftist last night on CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “law abiding undocumented”

Doublethink: The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them….To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies — all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.

So the person who came illegally can now be a law-abiding citizen of a country that they are illegal occupying and not a citizen of.

And since that doesn’t work as well as the Left would like…it’s back to basics.

You’re a racist!

You disagree with the Left, you’re a racist. Period.

That should shut you up and make you do as you’re told! 🙂

Earlier Friday, Obama called the Arizona bill “misguided” and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it’s legal. He also said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level – or leave the door open to “irresponsibility by others.”

The “reform” Obama talks about is Amnesty.

Former Governor Napolitano who’s big excuse every time it came up was “it’s a federal problem” is the now the Fed and she stop the programs, like building a promised fence because she never wanted to do it anyhow.

Amnesty, that’s the only solution the Left wants.

And as for “misguided” that’s a nice Liberal condescending word for “racist”.

The law sends “a clear message that Arizona is unfriendly to undocumented aliens,” said Peter Spiro, a Temple University law professor and author of the book “Beyond Citizenship: American Identity After Globalization.”

The Left is incapable of using the proper term because it’s a ThoughtCrime to say “ILLEGAL ALIEN”

It’s much easier to just yell “racist” and end all rational debate.

Not that you can have one anyhow with the Left to begin with 🙂

“Police in Arizona already treat migrants worse than animals,” said Francisco Loureiro, an activist who runs a migrant shelter in the border town of Nogales, Mexico.

“Migrant shelter” = Human Smuggling Operation…where people ARE treated like animals… 😦

Anti-immigrant anger has swelled in the past month, after rancher Rob Krentz was found dead on his land north of Douglas, near the Mexico border. Authorities believe he was fatally shot by an illegal immigrant possibly connected to a drug smuggling cartel.

Anti-Immigrant?

How about Anti- ILLEGAL Immigrant?

And what about the Drug cartels and the violence.

The Left wants to ignore it as much as possible.

It’s too inconvenient mentally.

“Today we celebrate the very essence of the country that we all love — an America where so many of our forbearers came from someplace else,” said Obama, whose father was Kenyan.

“And so on a day like this, we are also reminded of how we must remain both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws,” he said. “This includes fixing America’s broken immigration system.”

So we fix it by giving everyone who came her illegally amnesty and we ignore the Border after that because we fixed the problem.

Notice, the word Illegal never comes up. And we honor our forebearers by having a completely Open Border that care not whether you come here illegally or not because likely you’ll be a Democrat when we forgive you anyhow.

And when it occurs again, we do it again.

It’s better than being a racist! 🙂

“Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others,” Obama said.

So your failure means we have to have Amnesty and forgive all those who trespass against us.

And that irresponsibility is to do something about closing our borders and treating Illegal Aliens as, well ILLEGAL.

Now isn’t that backwards?

Of course it is.

But it’s Politically Correct. And Orwellianly Correct.

What part of Illegal doesn’t the Left get?

All of it.

It’s not “fair” that they came here Illegally and we want to treat like they came here Illegally.

It’s not “fair” to the children.

Children, fear, “fairness” and “Racism”.

The pure distillation of just about any Leftist.

Illegal is only Illegal when it’s NOT a Leftist.

So what’s left is the hate from the LEFT. they will continue to spew like the Icelandic Volcano raining ashes of Doublethink and Crimsetop across the land until even the thought of  Illegal unless they say so is the LAW. 🙂
