Credit Where Credit is Due

September 24th, 2009

Noting that he received a copy of the Constitution when he was sworn in as a senator, he proceeded to read it to Kris, emphasizing this part: “no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

“That’s pretty explicit language,” noted Franken, asking Kris how the “roving wiretap” provision of the Patriot Act can meet that requirement if it doesn’t require the government to name its target.

Now that is a change.  And a welcome change, even if it comes from Al Fuckin’ Franken.

Language

September 21st, 2009

We on the right side of the aisle are letting too much get by us by allowing the other side and the Establishment Media to define the terms.  We have to get out of this mode of simply parroting their terms to get along.  It’s time to call a spade a spade, and get out of the politically correct straitjacket we are in.  And let’s start with “politically correct”.  It’s not “politically correct.”  That implies that to say anything else is to be incorrect.  It’s “liberally appeasing.”

The biggest one — and the one that prompted this — is “mainstream media”.  They aren’t mainstream.  They haven’t been for years.  Fox is mainstream (and that is why it has the highest ratings.)  Fox looks like they are right because everything else is left.  It is only right by comparison.  They aren’t mainstream.  They are the Establishment Media.  They are everything that Establishment implies.  They are the old, entrenched, elite power structure, and they are used to getting what they want and not having any competition.  They are outdated, on the way out, and certainly not mainstream.

The big push in the Establishment Media is for the Health Insurance Takeover.  It isn’t healthcare reform.  No part of the proposed programs involve reforming healthcare.  The level of quality in our healthcare is fine.  Everything about it has to do with how our health insurance will work.  And “reform” isn’t where the opposition is.  The opposition is in the “public option” (more properly the Socialist Option) and the co-ops.  Those two serve one purpose — to lead to a government takeover of health insurance.  So call it what it is — the Health Insurance Takeover.

Stop debating torture.  No one on the right is pro-torture.  We are for giving the government the authority to use enhanced interrogation because we don’t believe that these techniques are torture.  If we did think that they were torture, we wouldn’t condone them.  Letting the opposition call you pro-torture is tacitly admitting that it is torture.  Don’t do it.  They are anti-interrogation.  Make them live with the label that accurately describes them.

We are letting far, far too many shenanigans go on with the terms that are being used to define the debate.  If we are going to start taking back our government, we have to start by taking back our language.

The White Obama

September 20th, 2009

So Jimmy Carter and a bunch of other idiotarians have claimed that most if not all of the opposition to Obama’s Health Insurance Takeover is because Obama is black.  Here’s where I’m having a problem.  How do these guys think it would have gone if Obama wasn’t black?  Like, say John Edwards won.  Do they really think it would have gone like this?

John Edwards, POTUS:  I want to completely take over health insurance and fine anyone who doesn’t pay for it.

Republicans: What?

John Edwards: Single payer healthcare.  It’s time.  We Won.

Republicans:  Well…

John Edwards: IwonIwonIwon!!!

Republicans: Well… okay.

John Edwards:  I’m glad you guys are on board.  Why, just the other day I was channeling dead babies, and they told me that socialized medicine was just what this country needed.

Joe Wilson: YOU LIE!

Republicans:  Joe?  WTF?  Can’t you tell that the president is white?

Joe Wilson: Huh?  (Squints)  Oh, sorry, sorry.  I just got new contacts.

George W. Bush:  Hey, some racist said that you also want to give free healthcare to illegal aliens.  Is that true?

John Edwards: YOU LIE!

Democrats: Damnit George, what the hell?  This isn’t some black guy, this is the president of the United States of America!  I don’t know about you, but we think that’s a pretty important office.  How dare you treat a president like that, you monkey-faced Hitler-like person that we have constant assassination fantasies about!

John Edwards: Oh, and we need a new tax.  Cap and Trade.  Give it.

Republicans: Hey, we’re in the middle of a recession.  Might be a depression.  We don’t think that this is a good time to raise taxes.  We don’t think that there is a good time to raise taxes, but this is probably the worst.

John Edwards: Achem.  (Holds up a porcelain plate to his face and points)

Republicans: Oh, right, right, we forgot.  Go ahead.

Kanye West: This joint session of Congress is pretty good, and I’m gonna let you see it, but I just wanna say, Hillary had the best socialized medicine plan of all time.  Of all time!
