How to Stop Receiving Junk Mail

I haven’t tried it yet, but this article shows you how to do it.

With all the political polarization and mutual hatred engulfing the nation, here’s something we can all agree on. At least I can’t imagine anybody thinking “Oh shit, this is just a personal letter from a friend. I was hoping it would be a credit card solicitation.”

This isn’t a one stop shop, but there are several phone numbers and online forms which, together, should eliminate most of the 41 pounds of junk mail you’ve been receiving every year. And you’ll save a few trees in the bargain.

Here is the website for getting rid of most discount club ads and trial samples. Or you can call 1-888-241-6760.

To get rid of most insurance and automotive come-ons, go to this site or call 1-877-774-2094.

To get rid of those ubiquitous credit card offers, call 1-888-5 OPTOUT. This is supposed to instruct the three main credit bureaus to stop releasing your information, which will presumably stop the avalanche of pre-approved credit cards. The article also lists the individual websites of the three credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.

The Direct Marketing Association allows you to opt out of some or all of the catalogues and magazines they offer.

Here is another website for getting rid of the catalogue tsunami.

The article has a few other websites in addition.

The amount of junk mail received in America every year has the same carbon footprint as nine million cars. So do yourself — and the planet — a favor.

AIG Gives Taxpayers the Finger — AGAIN!

In the past year, too many large corporations have performed the following sequence:

1. Hold out hand to receive financial gift from taxpayers;

2. Close three fingers around the money, leaving the middle finger extended.

The following might be the most revolting case yet (but it’s hard to say, since there’re so many to choose from):

In 2005, AIG acquired Utilities Inc., a holding company that controls a lot of small water utilities across the country. These utilities only add up to about 300,000 customers. But these water companies are mostly in poor rural areas; and most of the customers are at or below the poverty level. In other words they’re easy targets for corporate scams.

Two of the most blatant victims of AIG’s extortion scheme were the rural Kentucky towns of Middlesboro and Clinton. In the summer of 2008, AIG “upgraded” its billing system for these two towns. “Upgraded” means the water utility started copying the same slippery tactics that credit card companies had already perfected: Double billing, “neglecting” to send a bill and then charging a huge penalty if the payment is late, making the due date unclear so that payments are more likely to be late, etc.

In November 2008, right after AIG had received the first installment of its multi-jillion dollar taxpayer handout, they notified Clinton and Middlesboro residents that their water rates would be going up by 51%.

Was this huge windfall going to be channeled back into local projects or infrastructure improvements? Fuck No. This extra $750,000 per year — extorted out of 8,000 low-income customers — would be used by AIG to recover their expenses from having “upgraded” their billing system.

That’s right. These 8,000 poverty-level residents were being forced to pay the costs of their own fleecing and gouging.

When AIG acquired Utilities Inc., the CEO of AIG, Win J. Neuger, said:

“We have long considered water infrastructure as an attractive investment opportunity and an excellent complement to our existing energy infrastructure portfolio. Utilities Inc. is a leader in this industry and we are pleased that we have the opportunity to acquire this business.”

Where’s the Baader-Meinhof Gang when we really need them?

We all remember last Spring when Senator Charles Grassley urged AIG executives to commit suicide.


Jump already, Motherfuckers!.

Health Care Reform: “Failure is not an option”

That’s what Charles Schumer said yesterday during the health reform debate. He also said “We're not going to not pass a bill.”

Also NOT an option: The endless dithering, posturing and masturbating that threatens to derail any and all health care reform.

Our underworked overpaid “representatives” need to get off their asses and get a bill passed and ready for Obama’s signature before the end of the year. I’m as strongly in favor of the public option as anyone — better yet, a single payer system. This is clearly indicated in lots of earlier posts and comments at other blogs.

But the public option — and now abortion (it figures!) — can NOT be allowed to derail the entire package. Too many legislators are willing to scuttle the entire bill if it isn’t perfect. And this is exactly what the Health Insurance Harem (formerly known as the GOP) wants. This is not the time for “I won’t vote for a bill that contains/doesn’t contain ______________.”

This article lists fourteen changes that will take effect in January 2010, if — and only IF — Obama signs a health care reform bill before the end of this year.

Among these changes: ending the disgraceful and immoral practice of rescission. This is where an insurance company nullifies a patient’s policy — in order to sleaze out of paying the patient’s medical bills — by “discovering” something the patient “omitted” on the insurance application form. “So, you bought a pack of Rolaids five years ago. You didn’t mention anything about your pre-existing stomach condition. Your policy is hereby canceled.”

This practice is a huge moneymaker for the health insurance industry, and it needs to be stopped ASAP.

Health insurers will also be prohibited from placing a lifetime cap on a patient’s coverage.

The article ends with: “Later on, as with Social Security and Medicare, there will plenty of opportunity to amend the law in Congress. For now, let's help Democrats get HCR passed.”

Detroit Donates Millions of Dollars to Wall Street

As well they should. So what if Detroit’s unemployment rate is 28% and climbing, and a house in Detroit probably costs less than a new car. Quit whining! If Detroit residents weren’t so wrapped up in their own petty problems, they’d be more mindful of those needy Wall Street executives.

It’s bad enough when an individual doesn’t notice something in the fine print and ends up paying surcharges and penalties. Now it’s happening to one of America’s largest and poorest cities.

Several years ago Detroit entered into a deal with UBS and several other banks, enabling the city to save $2 million a year in interest on $800 million worth of bonds. Unfortunately, on page 73 of the contract, written in a size .001 font, was a “gotcha” clause. If Detroit’s credit rating was reduced, the banks could sleaze out of the deal and demand a huge payment.

Last January, it happened. Detroit’s credit rating dropped, and now the city owes $400 million to those banks. Gotcha! If you’re a giant scumsucking parasite with no morals or ethics, times are great right now.

Detroit is now making a monthly payment of $4.2 million to the banks. The city isn’t allowed to spend one cent on schools, transportation or any other vital services until this payment has been made.

Detroit is probably the most blatant example, but this is happening all over the country. UBS and Goldman Sachs — among others — are extorting billions of dollars from local governments and public entities. As this article says:

“Many of the transactions shared a striking similarity: provisions that protected the banks from big losses and left the customers on the hook for huge payouts. Now, as many of those deals sour, Wall Street is ramping up its efforts to collect from Main Street.”

The New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority and the Chicago Transit Authority are two other entities that have been suckerpunched by Wall Street.

Legislation has been introduced in Congress — by Representative John Lewis (D-GA) and Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) — which would impose a 100% tax on these penalty payments that the banks collect. That’s not enough, but it’s a start.

It’s not drawing and quartering, but it’ll do for now.

Yes on the Botax

We have trillions to spend on wars and corporate subsidies, but when it comes to reforming our 18th century health insurance system, hands get wrung; teeth get gnashed. “Where will the money come from??” “How ever will we pay for this huge government program?!?”

Now, on the one hand we have hundreds of thousands of Americans who are getting sicker and sicker — 45,000 of them die every year — because they can’t afford the medical treatment they need.

On the other hand, hundreds of thousands of self-absorbed over-pampered Americans are constantly indulging themselves with tummy tucks, Botox injections and other beauty treatments that serve absolutely no medical purpose. It’s the medical equivalent of having some people starve while, simultaneously, other people are going “Caviar and truffles again? How boooring. L’ennui [yawn]”

Now, could there possibly be any sort of connection between the above three paragraphs? Hmmmm…wait a minute…[brainstorm]…

dingdingdingdingdingding. The Botax. That’s it!!! Or as Kellie Bundy used to say, “Viola!”

Last year there were 4.7 million Botox injections, at an average cost of $400 each. Now — going way waaay out on a limb here — I’m gonna take a wild guess that these Botox injections didn’t come out of the rent money.

Senate Democrats are making the same guess, and they’ve proposed a five percent excise tax on all elective cosmetic surgeries. Botox injections, cosmetic implants, teeth-whitening — fork it over!

Speaking of taxes and entitlements: The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington has a new policy: Diddle a child, get a lifetime pension. Your tax dollars at work.

And it looks like the teabirthers finally got something right. As rightwads always do, the teabaggers are turning on each other. Go for it! Tear each other apart. Fuck 'em where they breathe!!!

The People Say “Public Option, YES! And Tax Those Rich Bastards!”

The health insurance industry has gotten a pretty shitty return on their investment. They’ve spent hundreds of billions of dollars bribing Congress, creating a bunch of slippery TV ads, and using phony “grass roots” front groups to scare Americans about “Death Panels!” and “government takeover!”

And what have they got to show for it?

After months and months of lies and orchestrated “demonstrations,” most Americans WANT government-financed health insurance, aka the public option. For those of you who can’t count to ten without using your fingers (i.e. Republicans), remember: the second part of “public option” is the word.....[drumroll]........"OPTION.” It’s not a “government takeover.” It’s an option. OK?

And what’s the most popular method of paying for health care reform? The public says Tax The Rich. The robber barons — and their legions of simpleminded worshippers — have been blithering about “Class Warfare” for years. Bring it on!

Meanwhile, Senator Tom Coburn (R-Inbred) is threatening to bring the Senate to a grinding halt by reading the entire health reform bill aloud on the Senate floor. Uh oh, this might take awhile. His index finger will be exhausted after being moved slo-o-o-owly across each page, sentence after sentence. And Coburn’s fellow senators will know when he gets to one of them big words with two syllables: His lips will stop moving and a puzzled addled expression will cross his face.

And speaking of class warfare: a House committee has just voted to enable the government to break up financial firms that are so huge, they’d take the rest of the country down with them if they collapsed. YES!!! About fuckin’ time!

If a company is “too big to fail,” it’s too big. Period. Sounds like good old-fashioned common sense to me, but the bill was opposed by Wall Street lobbyists and their Republican prostitutes. The bill was proposed by Rep. Paul Kanjorski, (D-PA). He said:

“No firm should be considered to be too big to fail. Financial firms that want to play in a casino need to have their own resources to cover their bets and not assume that tax dollars are available in reserve if their bets fail.”

The opposing Republican “reasoning” was that this legislation might force large financial institutions to scale back their size.

The Bow that Shook the Inbreds

The teabirther-chickenhawk brigade is taking a short break from their usual blubberings. They’ve got their panties in such a tight twist over Obama’s infamous bow in Japan, they’ve momentarily forgotten to yell and scream about “Death Panels!” and “Socialized Medicine!”

For now, the Far Right locksteppers are shrieking in unison that Obama is “apologizing for America!” “Groveling before our enemies!”

The knuckledraggers had the same mass hissyfit the last time Obama traveled overseas. For people with simple thought patterns, there are only two possibilities for the President of the United States when he’s visiting a foreign country. The correct choice of course is to thump your chest and yell out “America is Number One and don’t you forget it, you swarthy $#!%&$!#%&#$#$s!” If the president does anything other than that, what he’s actually doing is getting on his knees and groveling and begging for forgiveness. Sort of like what Michael Steele does every time he inadvertently offends Rush Limbaugh.

The expression “when in Rome…” probably doesn’t register with the retards who spend their lives sitting in their trailer watching Fox News. For everybody else — people in Japan bow. In India you don’t eat with your left hand. In Turkey and Iran you don’t use your thumb while hitchhiking because sticking out your thumb is their version of the middle finger. In England, if you mention something about a traffic circle or looking under the hood of your car, they won’t know what you’re talking about. And in Japan, you bow.

Bill Kristol, Bill Bennett and Karl Rove are among the rightfucks who have lashed out at Obama for bowing in Japan.

What Would Dumbya Do?

Or maybe Obama should’ve done what Dumbya’s father did, and thrown up all over his Japanese hosts.

Here’s a blog post about Obama’s “apologizing” and “groveling.” Check out the comments at the end of the post. There are some flatout scary stupid people out there.

In other Republican news: Remember Al Franken’s amendment to that defense bill, prohibiting the Pentagon from doing business with firms that force their employees to sign one of those “I promise not to squeal or make trouble if I get raped on the premises” clauses? And the thirty Republican senators who voted against the amendment (the amendment passed anyway)?

Those thirty Republicans are now horrified — Shocked! — at the backlash they’ve received. They sided with the gang-rapists — and the corporation that enabled them — over the rape victim, and all of a sudden them womenfolk are worrying their pretty little heads and going all hysterical and everything. Who knew?

But at least now those Republican senators have learned their lesson. Boy have they learned it. After some brutally honest soul-searching, the Republican Gang of Thirty have realized exactly what they did wrong. Their mistake: agreeing to a roll-call vote when they voted to stab rape victims in the back. What were they thinking?? Lesson learned!

The next time they vote to sell gang-rape victims down the river, they’ll do it with a simple voice vote instead of a roll-call vote. That way, the lowly public (i.e. their employers) won’t know who voted which way. They can still be a bunch of slippery backstabbing shitstains, but the public won’t know about it and won’t be able to hold them accountable.

Live and learn.

Eminent Domain — The Morning After

Poor, poor New London, CT. She was hardworking, virtuous, popular, did everything right, played by the rules. Then she got seduced by a slick smooth-talking stranger who promised to take her away from all this. She fell hook, line and sinker, and said “Fuck You, I’m Outta Here!” to all of her lifelong friends.

Everything was great for a few years. It seemed almost too good to be true. It was.

Now he’s left her — penniless, barefoot, pregnant, with a house full of hungry screaming kids and bill collectors knocking on the door.

Pfizer vs. the property rights of New London homeowners — this was the case that changed the meaning of “eminent domain” four years ago. For centuries the government has taken private property for “public use.” It’s a necessary evil, without which we probably wouldn’t have any railroads, highways, parks, hospitals or schools.

But about eight years ago, city officials in New London came up with the retarded “reasoning” (using the term loosely) that the term “public use” now applies to ANY private development project that MIGHT bring more tax dollars into a community.

Some New London residents filed a lawsuit to prevent their homes from being demolished to make way for Pfizer. One judge after another sided up with Pfizer and the New London city government. And in 2005 the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5 to 4 ruling, upheld these imbecilic lower court decisions. Eminent Domain could now be used to uproot ANYBODY from their own property, as long as the new property owner was wealthier and would (probably) bring in more tax money.

And look at what happened. Pfizer is now planning to move 1,400 jobs out of New London. The “urban village” Pfizer was planning — which was the entire reason these homeowners had their homes yanked away from them! — has never been built. It’s a huge empty parcel blighting the New London landscape. (The linked article has a picture of it.)

Susette Kelo is one of the people whose homes were stolen out from under them by New London city officials and Pfizer. She said: “I’m not surprised that they’re gone. They didn’t get what they wanted: their development, their big plan.”

Scott G. Bullock is the attorney who represented the New London homeowners in court. He said Pfizer‘s announcement “really shows the folly of these plans that use massive corporate welfare and abuse eminent domain for private development. They oftentimes fail to live up to expectations.”

Robert M. Pero is one of the New London city council members who led the drive to evict his own constituents on behalf of Pfizer. His punishment for selling out his city — he’s going to be the new mayor next month. (Talk about the Peter Principle!) He said: “I’m sure that there are people that are waiting out there to say, ‘I told you so.’”

They’ll probably say a lot more than that, you cocksuckin’ son of a whore. I’d say it too if this wasn’t a respectable family blog.

Strange Bedfellows: Teabaggers and a Militant Russian Nationalist

Igor Panarin, a radical Russian professor, has been predicting for years that the United States would collapse sometime during the year 2010. The shattered remains of America will be divided into about five or six regions.

Southwestern states because of their heavy Hispanic populations will merge with Mexico. Alaska will revert back to Russian control. The poorest of the Midwestern states will probably form their own nation, and the northern Midwest will either merge with Canada or form its own nation. The northeast will become part of “global capital and finance” based in London. And the West Coast will become part of China, of course, because of the large Chinese population and the fact that those Left-Coasters are using computers that were made in China.

The above tinfoil-hat rantings don’t have much of an audience even inside Russia, let alone anywhere else. But now the absent-minded professor has found a new cult following inside the United States. Guess who.

I guess these pitiful teabirthers need all the friends they can get. And since they obviously hate their own country and everything it stands for, they might as well hitch themselves to a Russian crackpot who wants America to collapse.

Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily (Home of the Afterbirther™), is one of Panarin’s followers. Farah says he isn’t “buying into Panarin's entire prediction” but says “there's something to it.”

Panarin made a recent trip to the United States and was surrounded by worshippers in Houston and Washington, D.C.

Question of the day: What’s the difference between a Greek Orthodox priest and a Muslim terrorist? Tomato, Tomahto, right?

Hell, them furriners with their dorky hats and funny robes, they all look alike. And what the hail are they doin’ here anyways?

In Tampa, a Greek Orthodox priest, who was visiting the U.S., got lost and asked Marine reservist Jasen D. Bruce for directions. The Marine conked the priest on the head with a tire iron and then chased him for several blocks, shouting “Terrorist!”

Now, what was all that liberal claptrap about military recruiters lowering their acceptance standards.

Ronald Reagan: Snubbed by an Ungrateful World

This is just typical! Par for the course. Those Goddamn Socialist Euroweenies spent the whole day celebrating the 20th anniversary of the collapse of the Berlin Wall — and they didn’t even mention the Swashbuckling American Hero who made it all possible.

Merkel and Gorbachev were front and center all through the celebrations. But what about Ronald Reagan??? Why is Gorbachev taking credit for any of this? What, some cheap-ass Communist punk was gonna tear down the Berlin Wall on his own???

When Ronald Reagan went riding off into the sunset, er, into East Germany, with his head tilted to one side, his facial features frozen into that permanent “aww shucks” expression, and those folksy one-liners streaming out one after another — them commies didn’t stand a chance.

Gorbachev tore down that wall because he knew damn well what would happen to him if he didn’t. The Leader Of The Free World made him tear it down. And now we’ve got a whole continent full of surrender monkeys, celebrating the freedom that Ronald Reagan gave them — and they didn’t even thank him!

Fortunately, a few patriotic Americans have remembered what really happened, and they’re giving credit where it’s due.

I suppose those sniveling ungrateful Nicaraguans won’t be honoring Reagan either.

And there’s still more disturbing news out there. Somehow — God only knows how this could have happened — American weapons have fallen into the hands of Afghan insurgents.


This is shocking! Unimaginable!!!

How could something like this possibly happen???

When Bad Behavior is Encouraged and Enabled

It’s become a tired cliché for older people to complain about today’s spoiled brats, especially in comparison to their own rugged childhood and strict upbringing. “My folks whupped me if I got out of line,” etc.

But maybe things really have gone too far the other way. This article talks about low expectations becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. The result is bad behavior which often continues into adulthood.

"Negative expectations on the part of both parents and children predict more negative behaviors later on,” according to a psychology professor.

The same professor also said, "Sometimes parents expect more negative behavior from their own adolescents than they should…”

Maybe some of the old adages were true after all. Who among us never got that stern parental warning: “Careful! What if your face froze in that position???”

And sometimes these badly-brought-up uneducated rubes get together with like-minded friends. The results are not pretty.

And now, Republican leaders are going over their to-do list, making sure there isn’t a single group they haven’t alienated yet.

Women — Check.
Hispanics — Check.
Blacks — Check.
Working people — Check.
Non-Biblethumpers — Check.
People with foreign-sounding last names — Check.
Jews — Check.

Apparently, some of those politically-correct oversensitive Jewish leaders are getting a tad irritated by the rightwads’ constant comparisons of Hitler and Obama. Gee, ya think?

Tom Coburn Hates Veterans

Senator Tom Coburn (R-Shitstain) has placed a legislative hold on the Veterans’ Caregiver and Omnibus Health Benefits Act of 2009 (S 1963). This is his way of protesting against the stimulus bill, which he has called “the worst act of generational theft in our nation’s history.”

Thirteen military and veterans’ groups have sent a letter to Harry Reid saying: “It is essential that Congress act on this comprehensive measure without further delay. Thousands of disabled veterans with serious medical conditions and the family members who care for them are counting on this additional support.”

Steve Robertson, the legislative director for The American Legion, met with Coburn’s staff to try arranging for some sort of compromise. No dice. He said:

“For a lot of family caregivers, delay is costing them their jobs and their savings. It’s having a big impact. They made it clear that Sen. Coburn sees this as using his rights as a senator to place a hold on a bill…I agree with that, but that doesn’t mean it makes sense to hold up a bill that would do a lot of good things for veterans that has cleared a committee and is ready for a vote.”

Sixty-one years ago an inbred redneck got fucked by a Neanderthal, and it gave birth to Tom Coburn. If you’d like to tell him that (in so many words), please click here.

A few other Senate Republicans learned something yesterday — something most of us already learned in elementary school. If you play hooky from school, the rest of the class will continue on without you. Time doesn’t stand still for you just because you’re having a tantrum.

For people who never learned this in school, the business world teaches the same lesson, often more bluntly. Don’t show up for work, and your coworkers will get along just fine without you. And your boss might discover that he/she doesn’t need you any more.

For the sake of all Republican readers out there (in case that isn’t an oxymoron), a well-known self-help book has now been rewritten: All I Really Need To Know, I learned when I was 57 years old.

This last story has a certain irony to it. Republicans won’t get it, but for people whose IQs are ABOVE freezing, it should be good for a laugh: At Michele Bachmann’s anti-Government Takeover anti-Socialized Medicine rally yesterday, one of the John Galt wannabes had a heart attack. Fortunately for Howard Roark Junior, some of those hated socialist bureaucrats were close at hand, and they resuscitated him.

As Mr. Bootstraps was being wheeled away by about ten government medical personnel, John Boner was spewing into his mike: “Join us in defeating Pelosi care!”

The Voters Have Spoken! Obama is Toast! FINISHED!!!

Sheesh, will the “liberal” media dial it down already. Two Republican governors get elected, and you’d think 300 million American citizens were charging toward the White House carrying torches and pitchforks.

Yes it sucks that two large states now have Republican governors. It’s not the end of the world.

I like the Upstate New York congressional race better. The 23rd District hasn’t sent a Democrat to Congress in over a hundred years. This should have been a slam dunk for the Republican candidate, Dierdre Scozzafava.

She was endorsed by the NRA and Newt Gingrich, among others. But she didn’t spew out enough fire and brimstone over abortion and gay rights, so the knuckledraggers kicked her out of their Big Tent. The single-digit-IQ brigade had their own knight in shining armor — Conservative Party Candidate Doug Hoffman. Calling all teabaggers, tenthers, afterbirthers, snakehandlers — here’s our chance to drive out those pansy moderates and Take Our Party Back!

Or as this article described it, Doug Hoffman got his teabags dunked. Democrat Bill Owens, a retired Air Force Captain, will now represent the 23rd District in Congress.

If you aren’t a resident of Washington State, the name Tim Eyman probably doesn’t mean anything. If you live in Washington, Tim Eyman is either a swashbuckling hero, saving Washington’s harried taxpayers from those tax-and-spend bureaucrats; or he’s a M&%$#&F#$%^&#in’ $#!%&%&$#!!#$%$#%#$!!!! There’s no in-between.

Eyman will never sleep as long as there’s still a library, public school, city park, fire department or any other socialist government service that hasn’t been shut down. His latest save-the-taxpayers gimmick got defeated yesterday. It was leading two to one in the polls just a few weeks ago. Thank God the voters came to their senses.

From the few pictures of him that I’ve seen, he looks like that nerdy comedian from several Seinfeld episodes; the one who kept saying “The best, Jerry. The Best!” and “I’ve been working out. I’m huge!”

Anyway, there was an interesting tidbit about him in last Sunday’s Seattle paper. It seems Tim Eyman himself is $250,000 in debt. That’s the amount he spent hiring all of those paid signature-gatherers so he could get his “grassroots revolt” onto the ballot. And now he doesn't have the money. I guess preaching about thrift and personal responsibility is more fun than actually practicing it.

Now before you go, here’s a short quiz (only five questions) you can have some fun with. I won’t give away any answers but here’s a little hint: no matter how sick and twisted you think the Far Right is — they’re even worse.

September 11th, 2001 — The Republican Rewrite

Here is what really happened that day:

On the morning of September 11th, 2001, the World Trade Center was attacked by waves of health reform socialists. Thousands of these pestilent liberals swarmed all over the Twin Towers, annihilating free enterprise and liberty everywhere they went.

In their wake, they left a heartbreaking trail of redistributed wealth and health insurance coverage for millions of previously uninsured Americans. The agony! America still hasn’t recovered from this Day of Infamy.

The Far Right has a new Official Demon™. When the Cold War ended, they needed a replacement for **Communism** and they came up with **The Homosexual Agenda**. Ever since September 11, 2001 **The Terrorists** (i.e. anyone with a dark complexion and a Middle Eastern name) has been their favorite code word.

And now those swarthy Arabs have been replaced. According to Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-Inbred), **Socialized Medicine** has replaced the darkskinned furriner as the thing Americans should fear most. Today on the House floor, she said:

“I believe the greatest fear that we all should have to our freedom comes from this room — this very room — and what may happen later this week in terms of a tax increase bill masquerading as a health care bill. I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country.”

Coming soon: Another one of those spontaneous demonstrations in Washington, DC. Michele Bachmann has summoned her gang of vacant-stare gullible dimwits to gather next week in D.C. They’ve been instructed to show their patriotic love for America and their visceral hatred of inept faceless bureaucrats meddling in their health care. They will carry out their marching orders as directed.

The next moderate pussy to be kicked out of the Republican Big Tent: George H.W. Bush.

In 1987, when he was still Reagan’s vice president, Bush told Mikhail Gorbachev: “Reagan is a conservative. An extreme conservative. All the blockheads and dummies are for him, and when he says that something is necessary, they trust him.”
