Nothing But The Facts Please

Here is a reply to a comment that I got on my post “Is disagreeing with Obama Racism“, that I just feel deserves its own post.  Check out the comment, oh and I just love the “Mr. Sentinel”.

Stephen Frazier,

Don’t be so thick in the brain or is it brainless. Anyhow, I never chided anyone for asking Obama what he has done that is not a problem. The people I mention are NOT asking what he has or hasn’t done. They are saying that he has ruined the country. And I asked and will ask it again, what has he done that ruins the country?

You ask me to explain how Bush stole our freedom,  I told you that he did so with the Patriot Act? Oh, you must not know what is in the Patriot Act, so therefore you needed me to go even further and make a list for you. Well, like I tell my son, get the information, it is free and helps you learn. There is nothing worse than a person who refuses to educate themselves.

You want to know why people say “we want our country back” and wonder what that means. Well, when the people feel that politicians are too powerful and unresponsive, WE feel that we have lost control of the country and we want it back. Get it?” Why don’t you explain exactly what the Obama government has done to be too powerful?

What laws, bills or other things have been pushed through the senate and house by Obama that would make the government any more powerful than it was under Bush? I keep asking and getting nothing. So it makes me believe that there is another reason to ask for the country back.

So to you the government was third in line to help Louisiana so therefore it was OK for nothing to get done for people who were suffering and dying.  You are a serious piece of work, acting as if the government being third in line is an excuse. It doesn’t!

The state of Louisiana Governor declared a state of emergency on Aug 26 then asked Bush to declare a federal state of emergency the next day. Governor Blanco requested help again after the levees break on Aug 29.   Then Aug 31 the state warned FEMA and Bush that people were dying at the dome. Go here and have a look at the time line, since you have a problem with your memory.

Wow, Obama has declared 37 “Czars”, that bastard! Now I have something else to dislike him for. . . Wait a minute! What exactly is a Czar appointed by the President? Oh, you mean a Czar is nothing more than an adviser who is designed to communicate with multiple agencies?

And that the first Czars were appointed under Ronald Reagan. And the practice was widened by George W. Bush who in fact had 36 Czars. Not to mention at last count Obama has actually 18 to 22 Czars the rest are Senate appointed people who are NOT under the title of Czar. So exactly what the hell is the hoopla again? I guess this is because you partake of too much Fox Stupidity.

You know according to Pew Polls people who get their news from Fox are the least informed people. They were unable to correctly answer questions related to the government. They were even less likely to have correct information than those people who watched ONLY John Stewart and the Daily show or Stephen Colbert which are two comedians making jokes about the news. Well that explains your lack of knowledge yet your incessant spewing of Fox news talking points.

You say Obama “Appointed tax cheats, socialists, communists, environmental wackos and Marxists to some of the most powerful positions in government” I think this is a governmental thing not an Obama only thing. As far as I can remember Bush had some of the biggest liars, cheats and incompetents in his administration.

But if you must, go ahead and name these socialists, wackos and Marxists as I think it would be quite entertaining to see if you can come up with anything. Oh, and if you do get a name right, please list what makes them a socialist, wacko or Marxist. Not just “that is what Glen Beck told me.” Ha, ha ha!

I guess by Saying Obama “enacted legislation designed to payback unions” you mean this little snippet of the Employee free choice act. If an employer is found to have unlawfully terminated pro-union employees, the law would provide for liquidated damages of three times back pay. In addition, you’d be hit with a $20,000 penalty per occurrence if the National Labor Relations Board or a court finds against you.

But unfortunately for you there is NO bill that provides money to pay back unions for nothing. And as far as I can see if an employer is unlawfully firing people for unionizing then they deserve the punishment they get. I can’t go and break the law just because I don’t like what it says. But, of course leave it up to a worker to be anti-worker. HA!

Are you for real? There are NO provisions to pay back tree huggers. I won’t even bother with it unless you show me a specific bill that was passed or some other legislation showing PROOF! This isn’t Fox news; I don’t deal in fantasy land or bizarro world. We already know that the auto industry was NOT nationalized. That is a blatant lie!

Again with this incessant government take over.  Now they are nationalizing the insurance agencies.  *Sigh* Show me where the insurance industry was nationalized? Are we talking all insurance such as car, business, and home etc? Or are you speaking specifically of health which you also have listed separately?

Get your lies straight, it is hard to speak to a liar if he can’t even keep it together. You also say he could pull out of both wars and end them, is this what you think he should? Or once he did so would you along with the rest of the peanut gallery then start talking about how irresponsible that was? Even I think it is irresponsible to tear a another country apart and then just walk away like you don’t know what happened.

Why don’t you recite the part of the constitution that you feel Obama is trying to usurp? That ought to make for some big laughs. We all know that the constitution had absolutely NOTHING to say about health care as there weren’t even any hospitals, health insurance; health related anything in those days. So what pray tell did they have in the constitution that will be usurped, I have to hear this! Maybe we should go back to blood letting and leaches. Will that cure that poor gentleman’s cancer?

Was it racism when people criticized Bush, not a chance.  There was NOT one sign that made reference to his race, creed or country of origin of his ancestry.  Was it racism when Obama called the white police man stupid? Well for one, he didn’t call the man stupid, he said he acted in a stupid manor, and if you don’t know the difference then too bad. And for all I know it could have been.

Was the million man march racism? Who cares what did this have to do with the presidency?   You should have asked if any of the marches about the stolen election or the anti war marches were racist. The answer is NO, because Bush HAD acted terribly inappropriately.  And to try to throw all these sidetracks it is obvious that you really have nothing to refute the information in the actual conversation.

I asked for people which would include you to name the things that were done by THIS president which would create such rage. So far you have said NOTHING that would provoke such anger and rage. Most of the things you have said were either wrong or out and out lies or so far off the mark as to be straight out of a comedy skit. So please if you do bother to reply again, put your thinking cap on and bring the facts. Nothing but the facts please.

Is Disagreeing With Obama Racism?

OK, it is getting just absolutely nuts out there.  I am reading some; make that a lot of blogs out there that all have the same theme.  By Carter saying that race is playing a part in how Obama is being treated somehow they think that everyone is saying that everyone is playing the race card.  Somehow racism can’t be a part of people disagreeing with Obama.  And all the people hate Obama for what he has done.

One of the blogs I read said that people hated Obama because of what he has done to the country and what he is trying to do.  Well, I’ll bite.  What exactly has Obama done?   I personally don’t care for Obama as I know for a fact that he cares as much about the black community as McCain or his idiotic sidekick moose hunter Palin.  I just haven’t seen anything that the guy has done or proposed that would cause all this anger.

Bush enacted the Patriot Bill which actually stole our so called “freedoms” and no one seems to have been out running to a tea party.  Bush said that it was OK to wire tap AMERICAN CITIZENS in their homes which takes away my right to privacy and yet not one tea party or outcry from Glen Beck or anyone else who leans right.

Supposedly Obama has run up the deficit, yet where were these so called tea party folks when Bush practically sent this country to the poor house?  Where in the hell do these uneducated loons think that this large as hell deficit came from?  Trust me it didn’t pop into existence the day Obama won the white house.  Trust me it was there the day before, the year before.  Hell it was there two, three and even four years before and was growing bigger every day.

Is it just me or does anyone else wonder where in the hell were all these people crying give us our country back?   Why is it, all of a sudden a black man is in the white house and now we, and in case no one noticed the vast majority of these people are white, want the country back.  Back from WHO!?  Who in the hell has taken off with the country?   Oh, yeah a black man.  I get it.

Anyway, these people don’t understand that it is one thing to disagree with the president, hell I do.  I just really don’t like this guy.  But, when I am holding signs that say “there is an African lion in the zoo and an African lying in the white house”; I think we have gone far beyond just disagreeing with the president.  There is NO need to mention is race or creed in order to make a point about how he is doing a bad job.

But, you see, my problem is that he really hasn’t DONE anything that shows he did a bad job.  He hasn’t raised taxes (YET), he hasn’t gotten us into two ridiculous wars, he hasn’t sat idly by while a whole state of people practically drowned and starved for five days and he sure hasn’t enacted a bunch of laws that strips Americans of their rights.  And if he has, then why doesn’t someone please list these taxes, wars, catastrophes and laws that he has helped to pass that would show me the reason for such anger.

I didn’t support Bush either but I wouldn’t jump down his throat if he had done nothing to hurt people.  But the problem is he did.  So there has to be something that this guy has done that would cause all these people to practically be chomping at the bit to overthrow the government.  I have been listening to these people at the tea parties and health care protests and they say things that go against their own interests.  So what is their real motive if not health care and taxes?

Double Dose: Hypocrisy AND Idiocy

stupid sign against health care plan

A lot has been going on for me right now and I have yet to weigh in on this health care bill whine fest.  It seems to me that the only people I have seen whining about this bill are those who a: have health care so wouldn’t even be affected, b: have Medicare and are already enjoying socialized medicine, or c: could care less about the health care aspect and just want their country back from the bad black man who stole it while being not only some sort of an illegal alien, but Muslin and Christian all at once.

We have tons of people showing up to these “town hall meetings” screaming, yelling wielding signs that shows either some crazy statements about how Obama wants to kill your grandma to him being Hitler.  Now I don’t care for Obama either, but that is for totally different reasons and a whole other story.  But some of the things these people are saying are so ridiculous they make Sponge Bob sound like a Rhodes Scholar.

Do these people realize that crying about tax dollars being spent on abortion is a moot point since Medicaid has been paying for abortion for years?  And the last time I checked those dollars came out of tax payer pockets, so oh well.  And even if this were a point that matters, what gives them the right to dictate who gets what?  Aren’t they arguing that they don’t want the government dictating their health care to them?  I guess it is ok for them to dictate others care though.

People are also trying to make light of the racism issue revolving around this matter.  The fact that they are opposing Obama is NOT what makes them racist.  The fact that they keep somehow hearkening back to this founding father bullshit that we all know kept blacks in their place is the problem.  Where in the hell were these freaks over the last eight years while Bush literally shred the constitution and used it as so much toilet paper?

We have had eight years of lies, corruption, mismanagement, out of control spending and war.  And now these people want to talk about how the government is out of control.  These are the same idiotic people who sat around while our government headed by George Bush did nothing for five whole days as people drowned died of heat and starvation in New Orleans.  Yet, now want to cry about how they think the government wants to kill someone.

And to top this off with something that speaks to the stupidity and hypocrisy of these people.  On Fox Phony News, they showed the lady named Katy Abrams who was at a Specter town meeting talking about how they woke a sleeping giant with her.  She said that she and others like her had the right to voice their opinions and no more than a minute later she said that she was angry that people are calling her and having the nerve to voice their opinions to her.

WHAT?!?  She can voice HER opinions but no one else has the right to voice theirs?  This is the ultimate hypocrisy that you get from these idiots.  They constantly talk about how every country with socialized medicine is so terrible and doesn’t work yet, somehow these countries aren’t out in force protesting the fact that they HAVE health care.  And I don’t see them all coming here to join our dysfunctional systems.

The problem as I see it is that we have too many people who have health care who could care less about those without.  But, the minute their insurance denies their life saving surgery or whatever, they will be on television crying and begging for someone to do something.  Don’t we see that everyday?  At least I do.  And why doesn’t someone tell me what socialized medicine those people are a part of?  I never saw Medicare or Medicaid deny anyone the care they needed.  So it couldn’t be killing someone’s granny after all.
