Camille Paglia, an art historian whose name is familiar, though I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by her, calls Obamacare “a Stalinist invasion,” principally because it will be enforced by legions of new IRS agents.
Ms. Paglia, whose very interesting rant on the subject begins near the 12 minute mark on this good interview of her by Instapundit Glenn Reynolds, says she is a Democrat who voted for Obama (like a lot of people in 2008) because she thought he was a moderate who would improve race relations.
Instead, as she puts it, he is a statist and possibly the most divisive racial figure in American history (Trayvon, the thug son he never had, remember?) who deserves to lose. In fact, she wants the Democrat party “shattered” and rebuilt because it is the home of effete liberals who have no notion of how the working class they pretend to champion actually lives and who only wish to pile on more and more government regulations to make all of our lives smaller. While they roll in the dough from our taxes. Vote Romney!
UPDATE: Not enough of us did, vote Romney, I mean. So we’ll have to get ready for our new, higher taxes and much longer times waiting for a doctor’s appointment. At least we’ll have free contraceptives. Gosh, what a deal.
If you vote for Barry, then you are the mark that’s been cooled out, sucker.
“From the time it took office, the Obama administration has sought to suppress the very concept of a ‘war on terror’ or the terrorists’ war on us.
“The painful farce of calling the Fort Hood murders ‘workplace violence,’ instead of a terrorist attack in our midst, shows how far the Obama administration would go to downplay the dangers of Islamic extremist terrorism.
“The killing of Osama bin Laden fed the pretense that the terrorism threat had been beaten. But the terrorists’ attack in Libya exposed that fraud — and required another fraud to try to “cool out” the voters until after election day.”
And when it comes to perpetrating fraud, Barry’s your man.
Via a commenter at Neo-Neocon, which also has a good Fox News special report on Benghazi video. While the rest of Barry’s court media joins in “cooling the mark,” Fox is on the case.
UPDATE: So is the Drudge Report, the sometimes shrill but always influential news source that, if you remember that far back as some of us do, broke the Slick Willie-Monica scandal open when Newsweak was sitting on it.
MORE: Iowahawk proves (once again) that mockery is the best medicine.
“With mischief like these regulations in mind, Mitt Romney said at the second debate, ‘I talk to small business across the country. They say, ‘We feel like we’re under attack from our own government.’ Denying that Obama is hostile to business, Democrats insist that his infamous taunt ‘You didn’t build that’ has to be taken in context. I agree. The context is his presidency.”
Incredibly, Mittens is losing the tax debate.The first of many of Obozo’s tax increases will begin in January, but somehow Mittens has yet to mention it.
“So far this year’s tax debate features one candidate with no credible plan running against a fake plan that his allies made up and another candidate with an admirable plan that for some reason he doesn’t want to talk about. Mr. Obama is winning by default, but that doesn’t mean Mr. Romney can’t execute one of those turnarounds he’s famous for, if he tries.”
If he tries. Sarah, please, give Mittens one your balls so he’ll have two.
UPDATE: Post-debate: She obviously did and the stupid party was redeemed. Romney chewed through adolescent Barry like a chainsaw. It was Godzilla versus Bambi. Stomp.
I was torn, once upon a time, about whether I should be become a member of AARP. One of my nieces is married to a young lefty who works for them, so I wondered. Then I began to read of their involvement with Barry, especially being in cahoots with him on Obamacare. So I forgot about it.
Now comes a new and so far smaller rival, AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens (nice title, that), whose conservative approach is much more to my liking. Especially now that I see their founder and president Dan Weber, saying he, for one, will vote for Romney/Ryan, both to save Medicare and protect Social Security from the Democrats’ rising tide of European-style entitlements.
After all, as Weber says, neither program was intended to be an entitlement, though today the Democrat news media lumps them in with welfare and the Democrats are enhancing the image by enrolling millions of young people in a Social Security disability program. One of Mrs. C.’s young nieces is married to a fellow who is on that particular dole.
Medicare, originally, was “a health insurance policy for which eligible older Americans have paid real premiums all the working days of their lives,” Weber says. Indeed.
And Social Security, likewise, “is a type of self-funded retirement program in which we have invested our own money, deducted every payday from our salaries and wages.” Exactly.
“I, for one,” Weber continues, “will opt for reform over Obamacare. Its official name is the Affordable Care Act, but it is not affordable and it was crafted in secret to diminish the value [of] our paid up Medicare policies to pay for free-for-all entitlements.
“I also choose sensible changes to the way our children and grandchildren pay for and receive Social Security. Specifically, in this day and age when people are living longer and working longer, it is not an onerous modification to up the age of eligibility; nor is it a radical notion to allow those who pay into the Social Security fund to opt for an independent Social Security IRA that lets citizens set up their own supplementary retirement accounts.”
Makes sense to me and, so, I have joined AMAC and, because AARP is larger (so far) will have to hope for the best from American seniors who (unlike the feckless young who voted for Barry in ’08, and now have only unemployment to show for it) are guaranteed to vote on election day.
UPDATE: Hey, AARP, you own Obamacare. Obama himself said you backed it. In fact, “According to a 2011 House Ways and Means Committee report, AARP stands to make between $55 million and $166 million from Obamacare in 2014 alone.” Through its sales of Medigap insurance. Heh.
