I love this story as it is playing out, and while it involves the “politics” per creating Obamacare, it to me is moreso why you folks need to be vigilant to how antisocial, and again to me equally plain sociopathic, tendencies can disrupt your lives.
The end justifies the means, per this story ending:
“Obamacare is a sham and the American people have been lied to and deceived every step of the way. Further, Obamacare has never been popular with the American people. Not when it passed and not now. It should also be noted that since before Obamacare was passed conservatives have been rightly screaming about its true contents and impact on American families and the economy. They’ve been right all along and were called racists for sounding the alarm.
Overall, a lack of transparency has been key to the Obama administration’s existence on a whole range of topics, which is why it is one of the least transparent administrations in history despite President Obama’s promises.”
Hey, it is just your health care being screwed up, nothing serious like your cable or internet access, so go back to your screens and forget the point here.
Unfortunately, Gruber was right to a point, we do have too many stupid voters…
Keep the con going, it is what the antisocial depends on to the end!
Addendum November 11 PM: Forget being polite and respectful, this is the bullshit that is Obama and his administration and “legacy”, and frankly, if the Republicans don’t go full press and try to shove this legislation so far up Obama’s ass he chokes on it, well, all these politicians can find ways to have self intercourse with themselves! Hey, I would applaud the commercial that just shows “Hans” Gruber in the video calling the public “stupid” and then the last 10 seconds just simply have a statement “Time to end this insult on America, support legislation to end Obamacare/PPACA and consider impeaching the fraud that inhabits the White House”.
If Obama was smart, he would consider whether it is best to return from China. Hell, he would probably be more welcome there than he thinks, his policies are the defacto behaviors of their ‘Leaders” as is.
Tonight, I feel vindicated not only for what I have written about Obummer these past 18 plus months, but going to protest in DC to fight this shit legislation insult as intended back in November 2009. And to all you supporters of Obamacare who work in health care, well, you are idiots. And that is the nicest way I can say it after thinking long and hard. What an incongruent agenda you have to support screwing the public and then claiming to want to help them!!!!!!!!
Hmm, I think I feel even better now!
Addendum Nov 12 early PM: thanks to commenter RB for this link, per her comment here as well:
“The Associated Press deserves a special mention here. AP assigned eleven reporters to review 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s book in 2009, but wire service health reporter Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and others involved in covering the Affordable Care Act during the past several years somehow never found (or if they found it or knew it, never reported it) what Weinstein was able to find. How can that be? (That said, Obamacare’s opponents didn’t find it either, which makes one wonder how they could also be so ineffective.) The press has also been extremely reluctant to report on another “architect,” namely “Zeke the Bleak” Emanuel, who has a history of advocating the rationing of medical care to patients depending on their age and other “useful lives” factors.”
Read up on how Joseph Goebbels helped promote the Nazi cause, hell, I have a first link to aid any interested to see if this has applicability to the Obama cause as well. Nazi analogies always evoke reactions, well, welcome to my world!
ironic I wrote about this only a year ago…
Addendum later this PM November 12:
Love this as well, from Howard Dean of all people, usually a Democrat apologist, but, I guess he had his random moment of reality as a doctor???
watch the video but the gist is in this written summary:
“On MSNBC’s Morning Joe today, Howard Dean had a terse reaction to Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s recently unearthed comments about the “stupidity” of the American voter in regards to passing the legislation.
“The problem is not that he said it. The problem is that he thinks it. I’m serious. The core problem under this damn law is that it was put together by a bunch of elitists who don’t really fundamentally understand the American people. That’s what the problem is,” Dean, a doctor, said Wednesday.”
Again, the point of this post is about the sociopathy that is out there among politicians, and the Democraps don’t have a monopoly on such disruptive and shameful behaviors, but, right now even with the losses incurred last week, can you really tell me that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have any remorse or reflection to what happened to their roles as possible leaders in Congress?
Their comments alone are nothing less than hideous for any interest at insight and judgment. You know what to me differentiates a narcissist from an antisocial cretin? The narcissist may not care what others think, but, the antisocial will make sure as able that no one else cares about the others, and will take them out if possible. Narcissists may not care, but they don’t willfully harm. They need an audience and some interest in showering the ego with praise and attention; the antisocial just wants the power and perks and not only doesn’t care what happens to the audience, sometimes the antisocial doesn’t even care if it takes him/her out as well.
So, keep blurring those boundaries and just claim we are dealing with narcissistic politicians. Me, I think we are dealing with scum and villainy. As the attention to Gruber grows and more shit comes out of the woodwork, watch the other scum try to duck for cover. And pay attention to who are the apologists and defenders of this treachery…
Final addendum for this post, late November 12 PM:
“Obamacare was enacted before the president’s purported idealism became a laughingstock. Shortly before he signed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, Mr. Obama told a University of Michigan audience: “When we don’t pay close attention to the decisions made by our leaders, when we fail to educate ourselves about the major issues of the day … that’s when democracy breaks down. That’s when power is abused.” Mr. Obama also declared that “we need an educated citizenry that values hard evidence and not just assertion.”
from this link:
What a joke this asshole is in the White House. He really thinks he can say one thing and do the exact opposite and not be caught, but with the way the media is, including the Internet (which by the way he now wants to control seeing how it is exposing his shitty agenda- http://www.cnet.com/news/president-obama-calls-on-fcc-to-keep-internet-free-and-open/ ), well, as I have written over and over these past near two years, you voted for this jerk not once but twice, you are a loser!
Unfortunately, there are a majority of such losers who have the ability to vote amongst us in the public. And Obama thanks you for being either stupid or just complicit to his agenda. May your health care fail you sooner than later!!!
Wow, we are doomed with the status woe as is!
Sorry, one last addendum after reading this one:
Rarely get a chance to read a Wall Street Journal article per their subscription demands, but this one was accessible and think it complements the points above, you hopefully can access and read the entirety.
One point I will copy here: “To be sure, not all false statements are lies. But The Wall Street Journal reported last November that the president’s advisers knew this one was false: “Aides discussed whether Mr. Obama might use more in-depth discussions, such as media interviews, to explain the nuances of the succinct line in his stump speeches, a former aide said. Officials worried, though, that delving into details such as the small number of people who might lose insurance could be confusing and would clutter the president’s message.”
And just this Sunday, on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” New York’s Sen.Kirsten Gillibrand—a Democrat who voted for ObamaCare and has a more or less safe seat—acknowledged her own complicity in the fraud. “Were you misled?” ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked the senator. Her reply: “He should have just been specific. No, we all knew!” “
So, surprise, surprise, surprise, liars associate with liars. Hence what you have as leadershit in this country, a bunch of liars. Another qualifier for antisocial personality disorder by the way.
