Beg your pardon, but this is a zero sum game. Unlike tax cuts enacted when Republicans are in charge, entitlements like Obamacare are never, EVER, rolled back or reduced. If this travesty becomes law, it will saddle all of us with a burden we can ill afford, especially now.
Here's a new slogan for B-Hobie's so-called reform, one that accurately characterizes what will happen if the federal government assumes control of every aspect of health care in this country:
Whatever doesn't kill you, simply makes you stranger.Comment Posted By Sirius On 5.08.2009 @ 08:43
If the GOP had been able to unshackle itself from this mentality, McCain would have been the nominee in 2000 and Romney would have been the contender last year. This is not so much a political problem as it is a mental problem within the party. Still, Romney's executive experince in both the private and public sectors would be tremendous assets in running against someone who should never have been elected animal control officer, much less President.
Whoever the candidate ends up being, they'll need to be long on substance and short on style. At the very least, we need a capable administrator to act as chief executive, not another primadonna celebrity fabricated out of whole cloth by media sycophants.Comment Posted By Sirius On 9.07.2009 @ 14:52
...not to mention Pataki’s terms in New York (which differs from Paterson’s reign only in the fact that George had an “R” after his name)...
NY is a one-party state, Rick, not unlike the former Eastern Bloc nations. But I doubt I'm pointing out something you don't already know.Comment Posted By Sirius On 24.05.2009 @ 11:32
If this development really does imply a move toward marginalizing political opposition through official channels, we needn't worry about the federal government implementing Stalinesque tactics like gulags and show trials. On the other hand, no one should be surprised if the IRS suddenly wants to chat with a disproportionate number of conservatives and Republicans.Comment Posted By Sirius On 14.04.2009 @ 10:49
Funny, I majored in German and was under the impression that was the language spoken in Austria.
Thanks for clearing that up, President B-Hobie!Comment Posted By Sirius On 6.04.2009 @ 07:25
A federal government bent on controlling the most trivial aspects of the lives of ordinary people and ambulance chasers more than willing to do its bidding - they won't stop until we bring back tarring and feathering.Comment Posted By Sirius On 2.04.2009 @ 13:29
B-Hobie's vision for America has already been largely realized in New York. We have the highest local and state taxes in the country, but the corresponding quality of life that liberals are always arguing that more government spending produces just isn't here. And the "stimulus" money the state is going to receive will go toward shoring up entitlement spending, which does nothing - repeat, NOTHING - to ameliorate the effects of the nascent depression.
I would encourage everyone who wishes to witness first hand what happens when B-Hobie's way of thinking manifests itself in the form of government policy to visit upstate New York. Take a good, hard look at what happens when people are systematically deprived of their initiative and freedom by a government that treats its citizens as either dependents or revenue sources. A close examination of what life is like in the "Empire State" will provide some insight into what the President wants to do to this country. There's nothing positive or constructive about it - it's nihilism in its purest form.Comment Posted By Sirius On 12.03.2009 @ 13:03
As I stated on many occasions prior to B-Hobie's inauguration, we're about to get a second Carter administration. So far, neither he nor any member of his administration has done anything to disprove that statement. Like you, Rick, I'd be laughing if I wasn't crying. The only silver lining for our family is that my wife and I have enough time before retirement to recoup our losses. I can't say the same for our daughter, though. Nearly all of the money we invested for her education is gone, so we basically have to salvage what's left and start over.
Of course, our ability to make up the lost ground is largely contingent on the American public coming to its senses and realizing exactly what the Democrat party is trying to do to our country. In that, I have very little confidence based on what happened in November. As unsavory as a McCain Presidency would have been, B-Hobie's election represented the ultimate triumph of style over substance. And we're paying dearly for it.Comment Posted By Sirius On 13.02.2009 @ 12:51
Watch for the scapegoating when B-Hobie's administration starts falling apart within six months. The only fig leaf the MSM branch of the Democrat party will have left at that point will be prosecutions of Bush administration officials, W in the Hague, etc. It'll never really end, Rick, because the concept of accepting responsibility for the outcomes of one's actions is totally anathema to the party that currently controls all three branches of the federal government. With any luck, the American public will return to its sense by 2010 and deliver at least one house to Republicans (provided there are any decent Republican candidates, of course.)Comment Posted By Sirius On 19.01.2009 @ 20:33
