Obama Keeps Making My Point

Posted by jemartynowski on July 24, 2009

I’m back! I’ve been busy and out of town but I’ll be posting again on current events. There’s a ton of stuff, but I wanted to touch on one thing:

Barack Obama is a turd. We knew this already. But then he said this:

“Right now, doctors, a lot of times, are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that’s out there. So if … your child has a bad sore throat, or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, “You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid’s tonsils out.”

Now, that may be the right thing to do. But I’d rather have that doctor making those decisions just based on whether you really need your kid’s tonsils out or whether it might make more sense just to change — maybe they have allergies. Maybe they have something else that would make a difference.”

Now, let’s try to ignore for a moment that he basically just smeared most ear, nose, and throat specialists out there.  Instead let’s focus on that fact that he is making crap up and getting away with it.  How many people right now are going, “Yeah!  Those a-hole doctors are screwing me and my kids!”  First, if doctors on a wide scale, or even a small scale, doing unnecessary procedures, there’s already a law against that.  They would be sued and taken down.  Second, if it was a question of cost, it would usually be cheaper to take the tonsils out than to have a lifetime of allergy treatments, dumbshit. 

OK, that’s enough of that.  The REAL problem here is that some idiot politician will be in the business of making medical decisions under a socialist healthcare plan.  Do you really want a d-bag who couldn’t do anything in the real world so he became a politician making decisions regarding your surgery?  I didn’t think so. 

Hopefully enough people are starting to see this moron and his cronies for exactly what they are:  socialist jerks with a need for power to accomplish their goals.  Eventually, they will control everything we do.  I feel bad for our kids.

A Word On Honduras

Posted by jemartynowski on June 29, 2009

Maybe I’m confused.  President Obama, Hill-Dawg, and many other Socialist leaders in the Americas are calling for the restoration of former Honduras President Mel Zelaya to office.  Now, I understand the other tyrants asking for this, but the President of the United States?  He should be supporting, at the very least, the constitutional authority of the government of Honduras to remove a person from office who is clearly trying to violate the constitution. 

Most of these voices against the coup are claiming they want an end to the old, violent past of the region and that this just sets them all back.  However, we are missing some serious points here.  First, Zelaya was not taken prisoner, tortured and killed.  He was merely removed.  There was no bloodshed.  The only blood that could be spilled is if Dictator For Life Chavez instigates some violence  Second, why has President Obama claimed that Zelaya’s removal was illegal?  As a matter of fact, the only reason he was removed is because HE was doing something illegal.  He was trying to pull a Chavez and all the other dictators of the area and extend his term in office.  Shouldn’t we be all outraged over that?  Don’t get me wrong, maybe this coup wasn’t the only way to go about it, but shouldn’t we be thankful for the lack of violence?

As a Wall Street Journal editorial put it, “The struggle against chavismo has never been about left-right politics. It is about defending the independence of institutions that keep presidents from becoming dictators. This crisis clearly delineates the problem. In failing to come to the aid of checks and balances, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Insulza expose their true colors.”  I couldn’t agree more.  There are those in our nation who would rather see government powers expanded, and are blinded by that ideal.  They have no concerns about the people’s right to change their government when it is no longer working in the nation’s best interests.  Obama and Hillary should read the Declaration of Independence.  It goes against everything for which they stand.

The Travesty of National Health Care

Posted by jemartynowski on June 19, 2009

Many may think the fight going on right now  is just an argument of how our health care system can be better run.  It is not.  It is the debate over one of the most important turning points in history.  The reasoning for this is that government being in control of our health care industry is a justification for tyranny.  Understand this:  the reason us Constitution defenders are so passionate is that we want a government who cannot control our lives at their whim.  Now we have a perfect example why.  Here is a quote from columnist and author Mark Steyn about Britain’s National Health Service: 

“Under Britain’s National Health Service, for example, smokers in Manchester have been denied treatment for heart disease, and the obese in Suffolk are refused hip and knee replacements. Patricia Hewitt, the British Health Secretary, says that it’s appropriate to decline treatment on the basis of ‘lifestyle choices.'” Steyn adds, “Smokers and the obese may look at their gay neighbor having unprotected sex with multiple partners, and wonder why his ‘lifestyle choices’ get a pass while theirs don’t. But that’s the point: Tyranny is always whimsical.”

We don’t want a government who decides what lifestyle choices we make.  I would think those who are so against the mixing of religion and politics, despite being a bit misguided, would understand this more than anyone.  However, these are just the people who are for this type of government.  Obviously, the American people don’t understand what they are getting themselves into (or can’t go back and fix their mistake).  I hope, though, that we are not distracted enough by a suit with a teleprompter so badly that we turn a blind eye to our nation being stolen from us.  I’m not holding my breath.

 

UPDATE:  http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Promises-Promises-Obamas-apf-396436588.html?x=0&&printer=1

This article makes a good point with a solid quote from an independent organization saying that the only way Obama could promise these things is if here were “king.”  Somehow I don’t see the main stream media calling him out for these blatant lies, but maybe because that’s because they think he actually is king.

Some Good Stuff

Posted by jemartynowski on June 2, 2009

I had mentioned before about IMAO posting some awesome capitalist propaganda, but this one was so good that I’m still turned on.  I haven’t read the book The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible, but I certainly want to do so now.

A great example of a hired man in a hat (from the video) taking stuff from us is going on right now.  As of yesterday, we, the taxpayer, are 60% owners of General Motors.  Why are we buying this company?  Because they are crappy, miserable, and run like a bunch of drunken monkeys are in charge.  That’s no reason for charity.  By the way, that’s all this is.  It’s welfare, but on a much larger scale.  Rather than a person who screwed up a small business or can’t hold a job, it’s a gigantic company who, despite millions of dollars into R & D, couldn’t determine their ass from a hole in the ground. 

Don’t trash us capitalists for knocking charity, though.  Giving to those in need is fine if it is to someone or some organization that is actually trying to do better.  Just don’t force us to do it using personal guilt via the government.  This quote from Ayn Rand’s The Objectivist says it best:

The fact that a man has no claim on others (i.e., that it is not their moral duty to help him and that he cannot demand their help as his right) does not preclude or prohibit good will among men and does not make it immoral to offer or to accept voluntary, non-sacrificial assistance.

It is altruism that has corrupted and perverted human benevolence by regarding the giver as an object of immolation, and the receiver as a helplessly miserable object of pity who holds a mortgage on the lives of others—a doctrine which is extremely offensive to both parties, leaving men no choice but the roles of sacrificial victim or moral cannibal . . . .

Which brings us back to the video.  People force you to give up freedoms in the name of many good things.  That doesn’t make it right.

Daily(ish) Ayn Rand Quote

Posted by jemartynowski on March 27, 2009

If concern with poverty and human suffering were the collectivists’ motive, they would have become champions of capitalism long ago; they would have discovered that it is the only political system capable of producing abundance. But they evaded the evidence as long as they could. When the issue became overwhelmingly clear to the whole world, the collectivists were faced with a choice: either turn to the right, in the name of humanity—or to the left, in the name of dictatorial power. They turned to the left—the New Left.

Instead of their old promises that collectivism would create universal abundance and their denunciations of capitalism for creating poverty, they are now denouncing capitalism for creating abundance. Instead of promising comfort and security for everyone, they are now denouncing people for being comfortable and secure.

-From Return of the Primitive:  The Anti-Industrial Revolution by Ayn Rand

For those of you who think that, at the very least, these left-wing crazies that have a vice grip on our collective junk have good intentions (feeding the poor, making things “equal”), I question your logic.  It is already obvious, historically, that collectivist systems inhibit growth and abundance.  The old left had illogical ideas that their methods would be the only way to keep advancements organized and regulated, therefore resulting in the betterment of society.  They were wrong. 

Now, though they might still try to make the same claims as old communists, President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and others have to be smart enough to know that these things are not true.  It comes out sometimes, when they admit that much of their agenda would harm the economy, so they need to wait until after we recover.  Jim Cramer, from CNBC’s Mad Money, a proud leftist, admits that the administration needs to stop pushing the things forward that even Cramer himself likes, because they are bad for the economy.  How, then, would these things be good for society just because we have a strong economy?  Perhaps I’m missing a step in logic. 

I’m not.  They aren’t kidding themselves either.  What they all really want is a forced charity.  They want to be able to forcefully collect money from the people to use as they see fit.  That is it.  No more, no less.  They believe they are smarter than you, so that they know best what to do with your resources.  If they were so smart, they would have found a way to accomplish their goals in a free market, not a dictatorship.

Daily(ish) Ayn Rand Quote

Posted by jemartynowski on March 24, 2009

So long as a concept such as “the public interest” (or the “social” or “national” or “international” interest) is regarded as a valid principle to guide legislation—lobbies and pressure groups will necessarily continue to exist. Since there is no such entity as “the public,” since the public is merely a number of individuals, the idea that “the public interest” supersedes private interests and rights, can have but one meaning: that the interests and rights of some individuals take precedence over the interests and rights of others.

-From Capitalism:  The Unknown Ideal by Ayn Rand

Since President Obama wants to push the limits of socialism by expanding his already extreme powers to taking over ANY financial business that might go under or need to declare bankruptcy as essential to the “public good,” I’m friggin outraged.  This is why the public good is not good.  It’s essentially saying that mob rule is good, and individual rights are worthless.  I’d never wish anything physically harmful on another human being, but if this keeps up, I wouldn’t feel bad if he took a football to the groin or something.  With most dudes, I’d laugh but feel bad, but not this asshole.  I’d just laugh.  Damn it.  Mostly, I’m just annoyed by his antics, but this is going too far.  It’s socialist policy.  A power grab.  Nothing more.
