Obama Revealed

Among the things today's 60-40 voted to fuck people reform insurance fuck people reveals is the TRUE identity of Obama's base:

Insurance Companies and Pharmaceutical Companies.

Follow the money; their stocks are at all time highs.

If I hear that bullshit about not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good, I'm going to puke my guts out.

Oh yeah Ms Stabenow: "This bill has a lot of things in it that are not the first choice of insurance companies." Oh how comforting. "We raised the ceilings on (retirement/union/health) benefits for which employers will be fined." Be still my fucking heart.

So it's not as bad as it could have been? I guess I should be all smiles.

To paraphrase a preacher I heard years ago:

Negative Goodness Don't Mean SHIT !!!

Just because this bill sucks less than Refuckyoucan alternatives, does not make it good. It sucks dead donkey dick in the elephant graveyard.

Pigs Can't Fly...

but the bullshit does on the Sunday talk showss.

David Gregory is right to read David Axelrod the riot act on the Senate's proposed health care bill. It's a TOTAL piece of shit.

But then he can't riseist his usual water-carrying -- Lying -- for the refuckyoucan view:
...Social Security and Medicare passed with significant reform...
Lie 1
Lie 2

Then on the roundtable, Ed Gillespie, trots out the usual, tried and (un)true refuckyoucan view that the president's falling poll numbers are do to him moving too fer to the left. In all fairness, if I was in his shoes, trying to sell snake oil, I'd say whatever worked, and obviously that line of crap does work, since Obama keeps moving to the RIGHT. Like a panty wasted pussy.

Fuckin Scarborough.... what a fucking GIFT for missing the point and ignoring the obvious: Where has the President reached out to republicans in any meaningful way? Like on .... everything? You want him to just say: You guys write this? ???

Dumb question

This bill is pure Bushian bullshit.

The refuckyoucans are right to oppose it, but as usual, for the wrong reasons. Their solution:

Remove regulation ie allow them to sell insurance across state lines.
End your right to a day in court ie tort reform.
and nothing would be refuckyoucan without a tax cut. to pay for it of course.

Tort reform is bullshit. Most of the "frivolous" law suits refucks talk about are people suing to get insurance companies and doctors to do what they're supposed to do. Remove the profit motive from healthcare/insurance -- a public option / medicare expansion -- and those suits go away. In NO state that has done it's own form of tort reform has insurance cost gone down.

The supposed "competition across state lines" would lower prices... temporarily... as the big companies undersold the small ones and the non profits and coops so they could bankrupt them and swallow them up. Look at banking. Worked out Oh so well, right? end of discussion.

Crapola, Straight from the Top

Nice try, but I'm not buying it. You're passing me a turd and trying to tell me it's fudge.

You're going to FORCE me to pay "protection money" to insurance company gangsters.
You're going to FINE my employer, because he treats me to well with good coverage.

This is NOTHING more than Medicare Part D on steroids.

The president has


Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman have taken the legislative process hostage. If they win, we lose. They will have made the rest of Congress as irrelevant as the President has made himself.

See you in court with a class action lawsuit.

Chris in Seattle
The Great Endarkenment

oh yeah.... that was in answer to this nonsense:

Dear Friend,

After months of debate this year, and decades of gridlock before, our country is closer than ever to passing the single most important piece of domestic legislation since Social Security. This is no small feat. There's a reason that presidents from Truman to Nixon to Clinton have called for, but been unable to achieve, health reform: it's incredibly difficult.

The current legislation in Congress includes many of the protections found in the bipartisan Patient’s Bill of Rights that has been repeatedly defeated by special interests. President Obama addresses that, as well as the broader substance and fierce urgency of health reform, in his latest weekly address. Watch it here:

Watch the video

There are some great elements of this bill that will take some time to set up, such as the new insurance marketplace -- the Exchange -- that allows people without insurance and small businesses to compare plans and buy insurance at competitive prices. But there are a lot of other benefits for families that will kick in during the first year if we get this passed:

  • In the first year, we will make it illegal for insurance companies to drop coverage for Americans.
  • In the first year, more of your money will start going where it belongs: towards your care instead of excessive insurance company profits or TV ads. We will start forcing insurance companies to report the proportion of premium dollars that are not spent on medical care -- including profits. If a company isn’t spending enough of its premium dollars providing benefits for families, it will have to issue rebate checks to its customers to make up the difference.
  • In the first year, all insurance plans will have to begin covering preventive services, helping to shift our health care from just sickness to wellness. If you purchase insurance on your own, you will receive preventive care from your doctor without paying a co-pay.
  • In the first year, seniors will see major relief in paying for prescription drugs. The gap in coverage with Medicare, the so-called "donut hole," will start to close for good.

This bill will reduce premiums for your family, shifting the balance of power from your insurance company back to you.

Health reform extends coverage to 30,000,000 Americans without adding a dime to the Federal deficit. In fact, it represents the largest reduction to the deficit in well over a decade.

The final bill hasn't taken shape yet. There are several more steps in the process, and the President is committed to making it the best bill possible to provide security for those who have insurance and affordable, quality coverage for those who don't.

It is important to look past the bickering and cable chatter and remember that we are on the verge of providing real benefits to Americans who can’t wait any longer.

Thanks, and have a great weekend.

Mr President,

Mr President,
Full disclosure: I was/am a Dennis Kucinich supporter. You lost any hope of my support when you defended and voted to destroy the Bill of Rights via the FISA retooling. A Constitutional scholar? Say again? All that being said...

You NEED to drop this "centrist" approach of yours. This pursuit of mythical bi-partisanship. The republicans have not and will not ever work with you in any way that would help common citizens, working/middle class Americans in any meaningful way. They won't. You need to come to grips and recognize that fact. The more you give in to them, the more they will demand and in the end, they will STILL vote against you.

This health care bill is a disaster. ALL of the republican efforts and amendments have the intent of making this bill a failure. They cannot and will not allow a bill that would go against their view of limited government. They cannot allow a bill that would disprove the Reagan view that "Government is the problem, not the solution." Success by our measure -- and I say "our" in the dwindling hope that you are indeed a liberal? -- is a failure in theirs. And that is reality.

This bill is going to levy fines -- you call them excise taxes -- on 40% of the health care plans in existence now. Sign it and you will be LOWERING the quality of care for all of those people. And what happens when the fines dry up? When those employers drop their good coverage for garbage so they can avoid the fine? Your program will go broke. It will FAIL. Republican victory.

You have SAID, if you could start from scratch, you would go with single payer. STAND YOUR GROUND. Back up your words. People... liberal... progressive... centrist even.... WILL support you. You're dying at the polls NOT because you're not moving to the right/center, but because you ARE! If any one is telling you otherwise, FIRE them!!!

I have called my Senators and Representative that if they vote for this bill, I will NOT vote for them. I will not vote for you if you sign it. You will give government back over to the republicans who created the mess we're in. If that makes you happy, go for it.

What Really Happens at Gitmo

What they feared would get revealed if we didn't destroy the Bill Of Rights.

Now Taking Applications

For two upcoming openings for Progressive candidate for US Senate, representing the state of Washington.

In a 51-48 vote on cloture, 30 democratic senators, Murray and Cantwell included, voted with 18 republicans to BLOCK an amendment that would have allowed for prescription drugs to be imported into the US at cheaper prices. 48 - 30 = 18 meaning that ==> 22 refuckyoucans actually voted FOR something that would have benefited ordinary citizens.

BOTH Senators received voice mails from me registering my disgust and displeasure and my clear intent to withhold voting for them in future elections. I won't vote refuckyoucan; but I won't vote for them. Obama is working extra hard to write a legacy of , "Oh what could have been; what we almost had," and these two seem more than happy to help him along, by taking positions in direct opposition to what their party SHOULD represent.

Don't give me carap about these drugs not being safe; we're not talking about more sit from China. We're talking USDA approved drugs; drugs that are in many cases produced here and exported to be sold overseas at prices lower than what we pay here. A Canadian pharmacist can sell drugs here at a discount and still make money.

There is no safety issue; where are the dead Canadians? The dead Europeans? ???

This is GREED! Pure, Raw, unadulterated GREED! Sociopathic GREED. MURDEROUS Greed. And Murray and Cantwell approve. They are accomplices and enablers.

What will make these sociopaths happy? When will it be enough? When will there be so much suffering, misery, bankruptcy, illness and death that they can no longer wear their Joe Lieberman smiles? ???

Kill the Fucking Bill

Yeah right... A Healthcare reform bill with no fucking reforms.


Yeah. As a monument to ineptitude. To spinelessness. To the Audacity of Nope. To the Pomposity of Prickishness.

No Single Payer.

No Public Option.

No Medi Care Buy-in.

No closing of the Medicare Part D donut hole.

No negotiation of drug prices.

No reimportation of drugs.

No cost controls. In OUR favor.

NOTHING in our favor.

Oh... we get see our employers FINED when they provide us with a policy that actually provides something worthwhile.

I called this what it was a LONG time ago:


The Rightwing Insurance Industry Profit Protection Plan to Assure Social Stratification.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good? My hairy fat fucking ass. Our own fucking party, our own fucking president do a much better job of that.

Don't pass me a block of shit and try to tell me it's fudge.

Kill this fucking bill... dump the DINOs/Conservadems/BlueCross Dems... and do it RIGHT:

Single Payer / Medicare Part E

I'm not sure who this Karen is, but...

She sure got this right. From a comment thread at Crooks and Liars:

Democrats: We must purchase X. Without X our country is history.

Republicans: Bah. Whatever. Fuck you, commie, pinko, loser, terrorist sympathizers.

President: Folks, X must be purchased. The time has come! Get to it! X will cost $100, so lay out the funds.

Democrats: Thank you, Mr. President. Okay, what do our constituents want?

Voters: Uh, lay out the $100 and get X. Duh.

Democrats: No, that's off the table.

Voters: What? Why?

Democrats: Shut up!

Republicans: How about we just analyze how much of X we really need, most likely none, and pay the proportionate amount?

Democrats: That makes sense, but we really need X. How about $80?

Republicans: $15.

Democrats: $75.

Republicans: $15!

Democrats: $65?

Republicans: $15!

Democrats: $60.

Republicans: $15!

Democrats: $55.

Republicans: $15!

Democrats: Okay, $45, but we're not going any lower! X is too important!

Republicans: $15!

Democrats: $35?

Republicans: $15!

Democrats: $30.

Republicans: $15!

Conservo-crats: You know what? The Republicans are correct. $15 is good.

Democrats: What?!?!

Conservo-crats: You'll never even get part of X without us.

Democrats: $25!

Conservo-crats: Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Democrats: $20?

Conservo-crats: $15.

President: Do what the Conserva-crats are saying. We need a deal.

Democrats: God damn it! Okay. $15.

Republicans: $10.

Democrats: Hey!

Conservo-crats: We could go for $10. After all, it's 10% more X than we have right now.

Democrats: What the hell good is 10% of X when without all of X our country is fucked?

Republicans: You guys really need to learn how to compromise. Stop being so stubborn. Stop being such idealists.

Democrats: Can we at least get back to $15?

Conservo-crats: Ehh, $10's good. Let's do $10.

Democrats: Fuck it. Fine. $10, for whatever good it'll do.

Republicans: $5.

Democrats: Stop it!

Republicans: $5, or we filibuster, and get the Conservo-crats to join us.

Democrats: Okay. $5. But no lower! We're putting our foot down for the American people.

Progresso-crats: Fuck this! We'll filibuster the damn thing!

Democrats: Hey! You lefties stay out of this! With you involved we'll get nothing! Let us do the negotiating!

Progresso-crats: We are getting nothing! You said so yourself! What good is 5% of X when without all of X our country is done?

Democrats: We're settled on $5. $5 is at least a 5% victory for the American people. We can't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Progresso-crats: You're kidding, right?

Democrats: $5 and not a dollar less!

Fuck Lieberman

He's worse than useless. He can join Bush, Cheney and Huckabee in my "male but not a man" category of sub-humanity.

"This Medicare buy-in....I don't know what's in it, but from what I hear..." Hear from WHOM Joe? The Boner? Diaper Dave? Mitch McMushmouth? or Bill O Lielly? Sean Vannity? The other Foxtards? Fuck you.

Yeah we could have healthcare tomorrow if we just took out a few things, like.... Anything that benefits people? And Fuck the horse you rode in on. Excuse me, the donkey you rode in on, since you obviously have delusions of being some sort of second coming of the (corporate) Messiah.

And while we're on the subject of Fucking, Fuck Obama too. Lieberman wouldn't be where he is, or rather if Obama had wanted otherwise, Lieberman wouldn't be where he is. Obviously, Obama approves of Lieberman's betrayals and dishonesty. Then again, Obama's a phony himself: the Constitutional scholar/professor who promoted the weakening of the Constitution via the Freedom Is Superfluous Act.

I didn't like him then, I see NO reason to change my mind now.

Fuck 'em

and all who agree with 'em.

Any questions? ???

I want the easiest job in the world:

Refuckyoucan Senator.

Read this, and there will be no doubt.

They do NOTHING.

Not One God Damned Fucking Thing.

They resemble that warrior of the water cooler we've all run into from time to time, who spends more time and effort dreaming up ways to avoid the job they're supposed to do, rather than just doing the fucking job.

What have they done? And I don't just mean in the last year. Or the last three years, while they've been in the minority. Historically:


Tuesday, December 1, 2009


When is enough, enough? This post isn't concerned with facts, it's a prediction of the conservatard/refuckyoucan view of Obama's escalation.

Obama had basically three choices for Afghanistan:

1) Leave.

2a) Stay and continue to put it on Mastercard/Visa like Dubya

2b) Stay and pay for it.

In the first case, that would be worse than "dithering." As Dubya showed so brilliantly, thought has no place in Presidential decidering. Leaving would be showing the world we're weak. Emboldening terrists all over the world. Akin to putting terrist criminals on trial. Or not torturing them. Pussy stuff.

In the second case, it matters not that Dubya, following in Reagan's ghostly footsteps, did it, Obama would be fiscally irresponsible. We should all know by now that Tax and spend liberals are responsible for refuckyoucan debt.

The third case, well... Tax and spend. Says it all. Obama's just using the war as an excuse to raise taxes and grow government.

It's impossible for any decision Obama makes to be correct. Totally impossible.


I want the easiest job in the world: Senate Refuckyoucan.

More on that later.
