If you aren’t worried, you aren’t paying attention

February 9th, 2009 | 4 Comments | Posted in Libtards, WTF

Anyone who has watched Obama’s political career knows that he didn’t get where he is by following the rules.  His run for Senate was accomplished by using lawsuits to have his opponents removed from the ballot before the election, not exactly the actions of someone who believes in the electoral system.

Now, in another obvious power grab, Obama is attempting to move the Census from the Department of Commerce to the White House.   He is apparently under the impression that the law doesn’t apply to him and is trying to make it so that the census will be handled by his number one boot licker Rahm Emanuel.

As a matter of impact, the census has tremendous political significance. Political parties are always eager to have a hand in redrawing districts so that they can maximize their own party’s clout while minimizing the opposition, often through gerrymandering.

The census also determines the composition of the Electoral College, which chooses the president. If one party were to control the census, it could arguably try to perpetuate its hold on political power.

Gee, now why would Obama want to control the census??  I guess that since he can’t guarentee that his commerce secretary will skew the numbers the way Teh ONE want’s them he is trying to take a more direct approach that will guarantee him the results he wants.

“I’ve always remembered what Joseph Stalin said: ‘Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.’

Yes, and Obama has been very, very good at making sure that he controls how the votes have been counted with the help of ACORN.

Now, tie this is with this little love letter from the Communist Party of America, and if you aren’t worried you are either on his side, asleep, or dead.

We can disagree with the Obama administration without being disagreeable. Our tone should be respectful. We now have not simply a friend, but a people’s advocate in the White House.

When the administration and Congress take positive initiatives, they should be wholeheartedly supported and welcomed. Nor should anyone think that everything will be done in 100 days. After all, main elements of the New Deal were codified into law in 1935, 1936 and 1937.

**UPDATE**

And in the “I told you so area” we will soon have ‘health care rationing’ with the government determining what is “appropriate treatment” and forcing doctors to become part of a government machine.

The bill’s health rules will affect “every individual in the United States” (445, 454, 479). Your medical treatments will be tracked electronically by a federal system. Having electronic medical records at your fingertips, easily transferred to a hospital, is beneficial. It will help avoid duplicate tests and errors.

But the bill goes further. One new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective.

Oh, and if you are elderly, forget it.  You are going to be SCREWED

Daschle says health-care reform “will not be pain free.” Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them. That means the elderly will bear the brunt.

There is also this

The goal, Daschle’s book explained, is to slow the development and use of new medications and technologies because they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for being more willing to accept “hopeless diagnoses” and “forgo experimental treatments,” and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system.

Yes, how dare we lead the world in medical research and develop cures for things like Diabetes, AIDS, MS and Parkinson’s disease.  I’m so sorry that I would like to see my sister cured of her Diabetes so that maybe she can have a normal life instead of needing dialysis since her kidney’s have shut down because of it.

How fucking selfish of me.  I bet though that our wonderful congressmen won’t be affected by any sort of cost effectiveness analysis because if that were the case, I wonder how Ted Kennedy will fare under the new plan.

I hope Dashcle and the bastards that follow him rot in hell if this gets passed.
