The Cone of Silence is being lowered.
The government takeover of Health Care is no longer to be discussed openly.
If we don’t talk about it, enough people will forget about it by November.
“My assumption is that this is going to wash out. It’s just not going to be that central (to the election). If anything, it might turn out to be a net plus for the Democrats,” said Joel Aberbach, director of the Center for American Politics and Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles.
The Fifth Column/Mainstream Media/Ministry of Truth will beat the drum that it’s no big deal, nothing to see, it’s the law, get over it.
Not worth debating. (which it wasn’t before it was passed either).
They will diminish it.
You’re just a bitter old right winger if you continue complaining it about.
“We Won. You Lost” get over it.
But we will talk about it as little as possible.
Let the fire die of neglect.
Then I read this from David Broder:
Most Republicans I have talked with say they are convinced that their outnumbered legislators have done the right thing by denying virtually all their votes to Obama and using every device possible to slow down or derail his agenda.
Most of the Democrats I interviewed are just as certain that the folks in the White House and the speaker’s office were justified in pushing the health care bill ahead to final passage in the face of polls showing most voters were opposed.
But the partisanship on both sides was itself a turnoff to independents.
They were the people who had taken Obama seriously when he said he wanted to move Washington beyond the recriminations of the George W. Bush years.
Regardless of their views on health care — or the economy or education or anything else — they are turned off by the inability of both parties to overcome their parochial concerns and find agreement on steps to curb the joblessness and debt that are consuming the country. (IBD)
And I got to thinking about the coming court fight over ObamaCare and my concern that Liberal Judges will dismiss it out of hand, like many liberal Democrat Attorney Generals do just because they are Liberals.
Not because of legal merit, but because of ideology.
We have a new Political structure in this country.
We have Homo Sapien Liberalis and Homo Sapien Non-Liberalis.
And Homo Sapien Liberalis will not go against it’s own kind.
So it’s not merely that you have to defeat them in November, you have to defeat them in every election on every level, every time.
Otherwise, they’ll keep popping up like the weeds in my backyard.
And you are the fool to think otherwise.
The days of actual bi-partisanship are gone.
Homo Sapien Liberalis doesn’t work that way.
And if they are in power and you oppose them, they will try and crush you, destroy you, diminish, demean and disrespect you.
You are, after all, a mental defective for disagreeing with them.
After their victory in the Health Care fight, what have they done since?
Gone on full bore attack on the Tea Party activist. Full on.
And the Fifth Column is right there with them.
Think I’m kidding: Read this from the Leftist Huffington Post:
Is there a double standard going on here? Surely there is. But what is worse is that the way that Tea Baggers and the Republican leaders frame the issue is that anyone who “stands up” and “protests” the Obama administration is a patriot, but anyone who does the same to a Republican is a spoiler, a low life, and a possible traitor.
When Republicans in Congress heckle the president or other legislators, they model the kind of behavior that degenerates further into the kind of violence the young heckler at the McCain rally experienced. When Republicans do not stand up for the right to express one’s opinion regardless of party, they enforce a kind of group-think that can only harm freedom of speech. The Supreme Court has defended the right of citizens to engage in robust and raucous colloquy. That ruling applies not only to Tea Party protesters but to all Americans as well. (Lennard Davis-Professor at University of Illinois-Chicago)
The poor leftists are victims of the mean, nasty “violent”, Free speech crushing right-wingers! Waaaaa!!
The nerve of those oppressive Tea party activists! 😦
And the whole “racism” angle is back.
The Left’s favourite pit bull is being let out into the yard again.
Frank Rich of The New York Times and Colbert King of The Washington Post are among the columnists willingly checking their honesty – or their brains – at the door to throw political mud. Either these people are too ignorant to know their charges or false, or they don’t care and spit their bile anyway.
King wrote last week of looking at “angry faces” at Tea Party rallies and finding them “eerily familiar,” resembling protesters seeking to prevent a black University of Alabama enrollee in 1956.
Rich peppered his column with Third Reich imagery, eventually backing up his claim of racism with comparisons to those who opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Leaving aside for the moment that much opposition to that measure came from Democrats, it cannot be said plainly enough today: These men and their numerous partners in this smear should be ashamed – if nothing else, for logical flaws beneath a fifth-grader.
Their argument is: (A) This movement is filled with vocal people displeased with the way things are going; (B) I can find examples in history of people whose vocal displeasure was fueled by racism. Hence, (C) these people must be fueled by racism.
OK, boys, let’s see how you like it: (A) You are fans of ObamaCare; (B) Castro is a fan of ObamaCare, so, (C) you are communists.
Logic and basic human decency prevent me from making that connection seriously. I would like to believe that if these craven critics actually attended a Tea Party event, their testimony would change. But I doubt it. Theirs is a screeching born of panic, the need to demonize a movement rather than debate it. (Mark Davis)
So it’s fight between two species both fighting for survival.
But to illustrate the problem, this was found in the Comment Section of Mark Davis’s Op-ed piece:
Yesterday, the University of Washington held a debate about the constitutionality of the recently passed health care reform bill. The Seattle Times reports that none of the panelists at the debate argued that the bill was unconstitutional because the organizers of the event couldn’t find any law professors who held that view:
The University of Washington billed it as a debate among distinguished law faculty over whether the new federal health-care law is constitutional.
But while the four panelists at a packed event Tuesday may have differed on some of the finer points, they all agreed on the big question: They said the new law passes constitutional muster and that various lawsuits arguing the opposite — including the one joined last week by state Attorney General Rob McKenna — have little merit or chance of success. Even John McKay, the former Republican U.S. attorney for Western Washington (who was forced out in 2006 under contentious circumstances) said that while he sympathized with some of the political issues in play, he thought the lawsuits lacked merit. In fact, he questioned the timing and thrust of the cases: “One way to say it is, that this has to be seen as a political exercise,” he said.
Moderator Hugh Spitzer noted the lack of a vigorous dissenting voice. “I will say that we tried very hard to get a professor who could come and who thinks this is flat-out unconstitutional,” he said. “But there are relatively few of them, and they are in great demand.”
My guess is that they either didn’t look hard enough, didn’t care to look to hard, or that no one wanted to be the Christian thrown to the lions in a Liberal Coliseum to shreded by the panel and the liberal audience.
The fact that they held a “debate” anyways, with the other side being debated at all is indicative of Homo Sapien Liberalis.
The Liberals smugly went on with the show confident that they are right simply because they “couldn’t find anyone” to oppose them.
Which I’m positive is disingenuous at best.
It’s not like Homo Sapien Liberalis is actually capable to listening to arguments against it’s own positions and changing their minds.
No, that would be a Jedi Mind Trick. And they must stay strong.
They are after all, always right. No Matter what.
Just ask them.
Hope and Change, you say.
Bi-Partisanship, you say.
Freedom and Democracy, you say.
I say APRIL FOOLS!
Only, you’re a fool to believe the Left anymore.
