Mama Grizzly Bear Palin Likes Canadian Socialized Medicine

Alaskan Independence Party

Sarah Palin is trying to steal the iconography of “potency” from Barrack Obama with her metaphor of the “Mama Grizzly”. That nice folksy icon of the Alaskan Independence Party that Sarah Palin loves so much. If Sarah Palin where a liberal then Glenn Beck would bring out the connection between the image of the “Mama Grizzly (see image on right) with the logo of the Alaskan Independence Party.  Remember his conspiracy talk about images on buildings a few months back!

But the real problem is that Barrack Obama would prefer to attack his own base than fight the Republicans. If he had some “potency” he would be lambasting Sarah Palin for double talk, since by her own admission she crossed the Canadian border to partake of their evil socialized medicine. Then again what can you expect from a wimp of a President who allows:

  • Month after month of death panel talk to go unanswered.
  • Corporate citizenship to be instituted by an activist far right Supreme Court with no demand for a constitutional amendment to restore a  strict constructionalist interpretation of the Constitution in wake of right wing activism.
  • A so – called “Health Care Bill” to be made into law without a strong public option.
  • His own native citizenship to be assailed without lashing back.
  • Sarah Palin’s connection to the Alaskan Independence Party to not be examined.

President Spock And The Science Of Losing

Let’s see now how can we Democrats go out of our way to loose! Well first we had Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi gaining the leadership of the Senate and House then pig headily letting the Republicans just roll over them! We could have refused to fund the war in Iraq but Nancy Pelosi would not have any of it!

We could have held the nation spell bound with endless TV newscasts of Congressional committees investigating:

  • Halliburton
  • George Bush and his failure to complete his National Guard service requirements.
  • Corporate selling of our technology to the enemies of America!
  • Corporations avoiding taxes by setting up off shore head quarters!
  • How we got into Iraq and endless gleeful days of news cycle coverage concerning the Iraqi War’s contribution to our economic mess.
  • Corporate off shoring of both white collar technical jobs and blue collar jobs.

Massachusetts: Yo Obama It’s Your Fault

Americans love “action figures”. George Bush Jr. did not even have a majority when the College of Electors  gave him the presidency in the 2000 election. Gore had the popular vote regardless of Florida. But Bush became an “action figure” when the issue was terrorism. So what he invaded the wrong country, Iraq! Americans love ACTION! His action, even wrong action, gave him a second term. Hell even the liberal MSNBC was re-airing the invasion of Iraq with all our “shock and awe” technology to it’s liberal audience well into the second term of George Bush. Then the issue was the economy and jobs. The Republicans preached what George Bush Sr. called “voodoo economics”. The same hands off economics of Herbert Hover. Obama promised “change” he presented himself as an “ACTION FIGURE”. Below is a video, not from a politician but an average American whose frustration and anger I agree with 100%. Thank you Justin for the video!

Massachusetts – Charge Of The Castrati Brigade

I disagree with The Huffington Post that a loss in Massachusetts is the loss of Universal Health Care! In fact as a Progressive Social Democrat I welcome it! When I heard the recent predictions I was actually laughing since this is the pathetic  result of fighting the “Party of No” by being the “Party of MEOW”! It reminds me of my undergraduate days learning B. F. Skinners’ operant conditiong! Corporate America and their fellow travelers, the Blue Dog Democrats, have been using operant conditioning’s “successive approximation” to shape the behavior of President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to the point where they are now “The Castrati Brigade for Change”! The new ‘mantra” of the Democratic Party leadership is “MEOW”!

The Audacity Of Impotence

Following in that great martial tradition laid down by Nancy Pelosi, who had two years control of the House even before Barrack Obama became President but was to impotent to impeach George Bush or defund the war, our new President joins with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in our Democratic Party’s new “Change We Can Believe In – War Cry”. — “MEOW … MEOW … MEOW”!

Separation Of Corporation And State

When is the American middle class going to wake up and demand the separation of corporation and state! We must address this issue before the health care issue. The problems passing real health care reform are mere symptoms of the underlying disease that is infecting the “decision making processes” of our society! That disease is the lack of Separation between Corporation and State!

Starter House But Insurance Cartel Owns The Mortgage

This bill is to weak and requires audacity to hope that rates will not skyrocket due to insurance company greed. I am afraid I cannot go along with Senator Harkins analogy that the Senate Bill is a “starter house not a mansion but we have to start somewhere!” I must number myself among the “Democrats Against Health Reform” because as Howard Dean has mentioned the Bill still allows Insurance Companies to practice “de facto” rejection of customers due to prior existing conditions. The rejection would be illegal but the modus operandi would be that insurance companies can still jack up their prices to cost prohibitive levels on those customers they do not want!

There is no real competition for the insurance companies without a robust public option.

Thus rates will continue their projected massive upward trends. Rates are set to skyrocket over the next few years but the average American is not aware of this.

  • If there is no bill then the so called “free market” will be blamed and their Republican fellow travelers would suffer even more loses at the polls.
  • If the bill passes then when rates continue to rise unchecked the Democrats will take the blame.

You cannot simply “add on” to this “starter house” because the Democrats just don’t have the testosterone to do it! Besides having a public option was a compromise to begin with since most progressives want a single payer system!

I strongly urge you to watch this testosterone filled video from “The Frank Factor”. This video was made prior to Obama taking office! But the author makes a correct assessment and a dire prediction that has come true due to the weak behavior of both Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. (See see video below).

Senator Ben Nelson Blue Dog Hypocrite

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is a damned hypocrite who helped kill real Health Care Reform. He whines against both abortion and government “socialism”. That is why he was against the public option! Yet he has jumped on board to give the 60th vote in the Senate in return for unique “Socialist Medicaid” concessions to his state of Nebraska while denying America the public option! – Hypocrite!

Trial In NYC – Threat To America Or Threat To Dick Cheney?

After hearing all the right wing whining that America is to weak to place the 9-11 terrorists on trial in New York City I have to wonder is it perhaps that they fear Dick Cheney might be called as a witness and if he were not to comply it could jeopardize the conviction of these terrorists? Dick Cheney seems to do a dance when he talks about national security issues. (See video below).

I have the habit of viewing things from a psychological perspective! I believe Cheney’s attacking of President Obama has the “function” or perhaps the “deliberate purpose” preventing his being called to Congressional hearings. If he were prosecuted then his followers could hold up their hands at the Democrats saying he was being persecuted for attacking Obama.

If the 9-11 terrorists are tried in an American civilian court they could present their prior treatment in Gitmo as a violation of the Geneva Convention and to show high level culpability of the US Government, who better to call as a witness than Dick Cheney!

Right Wing Attacks Obama’s Bow To Emperor

While our President is being criticized for bowing to the Japanese Emperor, the mistake might be on the Japanese Emperor’s side in not bowing back. Bowing is a Japanese custom and President Obama was in his country. But bowing can also be from a “commoner” to a monarch and by not bowing back the Emperor made the Obama bow mean the latter. But then again Obama did the same to the Saudi and even British monarchs! It must be remembered though that the monarch is the flag of that nation unlike a President.

The right wing is having a field day with this sign of respect.
