Alan Grayson’s Unimpeachable Analysis of Republican Healthcare ‘Policy’

Also Smelling Treason

Treason? 

Well, when last I checked, advocating for an overthrow of the duly-elected government of the U.S. was a no-no.

This NooseMax turd is making its way around the punchbowl of life today:

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem.

‘Military’ and ‘bloodless’ together when speaking of a coup.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Incidentally, what I actually found more interesting (and far less surprising; after all, christianism and treason are conjoined twins) was the ad roll on that NooseMax post:

TheJackpot

 

Guns, penis pills, Coulter, and an assumption that there’s a lot of diabetics among NooseMax readers….

like, perhaps….

Guns, penis pills and christianist jihad-ette…

Enough to make you forget about number four?

As Jon Lovitz once said, in character as Michael Dukakis, ‘I’m losing to this guy?’

We are losing to these people. 

Increasingly, I’m surprised that there hasn’t been a coup already.


I Love the Smell of Reality in the Morning

… or evening as the case may be.

From Queer Channel Media, word that someone in the Obama Administration knows which end of the law-making sausage is which.

The highest-ranking openly gay appointee in the Obama administration is encouraging LGBT Americans to make passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act their No. 1 priority and said its success would place within reach other civil rights goals.

John Berry, director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, called for greater focus on ENDA on Saturday following his keynote address at Out for Work’s national convention at the Westin City Center Hotel in D.C.

Berry advocated for the importance of ENDA — and identified repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the Defense of Marriage Act as other priorities — in response to an audience member’s question about possible legislative issues on the horizon and criticism that President Obama isn’t moving quickly enough on LGBT issues.

“The most important thing we can do right now is we got to … secure the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — and it’s got to include full transgender protections,” Berry said. “I believe that if we all concentrate our efforts where it needs to be concentrated, which is on the House of Representatives and the United States Senate, we can get the job done.”

Other pro-LGBT legislation can be more easily achieved, Berry said, if Congress were to pass ENDA.

That sound you hear is the brains of all of the Marriage Derangement Syndrome crowd simultaneously exploding.


If Only

September 25, 2009

From Last Left Turn Before Hooterville:

Illegal criminals, take notice – Conservative Americans are taking back their jobs!

Yes, from the ashes of the failed Minute-Man Movement, the Gimme Back My Job, Dammit Coalition (GBMJ,DC) has risen, and it has spread like wildfire among conservatives sick and tired of illegals taking the jobs from deserving American citizens. No longer content to wait for the government to do it for them, these patriots have taken matters into their own hands. Now they’re doing more than just protesting or watching from the sidelines – they’re taking back their Constitutional, God-given right to a job. Suddenly, you see them everywhere – on the sidewalk with a leaf-blower strapped to their back, in the parking lot of your favorite restaurant with the keys to your car or inside, balancing a heavy-laden bus tray full of dirty dishes as they adroitly refill your iced tea glass on their way back to the kitchen. You may find them bent over in a lettuce field under a blistering sun with a rake in their hand, or endangering their limbs with casually-maintained but lethally sharp meat-cutting machinery for fourteen hours or more a day while earning somewhere around three dollars an hour, with no benefits, medical insurance, workman’s compensation, or even bathroom breaks.

Most of them say they’ve never been happier.

“For the first time in my life, I feel needed,” says Coalition member Chuck B. Liggett, 70, a former accountant who now works in a chicken-packing plant in Amarillo, Texas. “When the floor boss screams at me for slowing down, I feel a surge of pride because what I do actually matters. Now, I do an honest day’s work for my pay, and by the time I collapse on my filthy mattress on the floor of my stinking room at the end of my fifteen-hour shift, I know I really earned that forty dollars!”

If only the teabagging christianists of the Racist Right weren’t immune to both logic and irony….


A Good Question

September 24, 2009

As posed by C&L:

Why [Peggy] Noonan is taken seriously is beyond me anyway. She was already caught off camera talking to Chuck Todd and Mike Murphy and just bashing Sarah Palin and the Republican Party, but she would never say that on TV, live that is. She exposed herself as a hypocrite and a liar. Why is she considered a trusted source of conservative opinion?

Its more than a fair question. 

Even Pat Buchanan’s twenty-first century bona fides eclipse hers; when he flips his racism switch, I swear I can actually see the foam oozing from his mouth.  And that foam is the frosting on the Archie-Bunker-as-politico truth-cancer cake that most Republicans wish that true middle America would never actually hear from someone publicly identified as a Republican,

But Noonan?

She put words in Bonzo’s mouth a quarter-century ago – and, yes, she was a female pathbreaker as such (putting aside, of course, the fact that that person she was pen-shilling for helped set back the cause of real rights for real – as in non-politically connected – women far more than a quarter-century) – but what are her actual qualifications to do anything other than situate herself on camera to look both stiff and sloshy at the same time?


Please Chaz, Not a YATA

September 24, 2009

From Bay Windows:

Chaz Bono, child of Cher and Sonny Bono, recently went public regarding his transition from female to male, and plans to release a tell-all memoir describing the details of his transition.

Chaz (formerly Chastity) Bono’s memoir, ’Coming Clean,’ is expected to hit bookshelves in spring of 2011.

Yet another tranny autobio.

If it includes any ‘coming clean’ about what the Scampaign’s real attitude was toward trans people & issues was while Chaz was there, I might consider looking at it.

Otherwise……………


Too True Not to Spread

Yes, you’ve probably already seen this by now…

But be honest…

That’s a clip will NEVER grow old!

You go, Romanian babe!
