“At 75 and beyond, I will need a good reason to even visit the doctor…Flu shots are out.” –Ezekiel Emanuel, “Why I Hope to Die at 75”
They know it’s coming…after the elections, in 2016, the REAL death trap of Obamacare is going to hit millions of people—then it will become painfully obvious: Yes, Obamacare will decide who lives and who dies.
Soon, in the not so distance future, only the very rich will get heart surgery if they are over 75. Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Daddy Bush, they will always have the best care that money can buy, and at whatever age they need it. But, not you and I. And it’s one thing to watch Obama play golf every day on your hardworking money, but when he insists that you DIE? Even democrats are not going to take that lightly.
So the man who designed the death panels, is going to help out, he wrote: Why I hope to Die at 75″
Ezekiel: Once I have lived to 75, my approach to my health care will completely change. I won’t actively end my life. But I won’t try to prolong it, either.
(Well THAT’s good news.)
Anyway, here’s a few more of his ‘opinions’ and my usual banter:
Ezekiel: I am sure of my position. Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences and milestones, of time spent with our spouse and children. In short, it deprives us of all the things we value.
Ezekiel: But here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.
Nobody: Living too long is a “loss”? So, let me get this straight Zink. No life is worth living UNLESS it is fully capable of walking, thinking, moving, and serving the state, have I got that right? That leaves out most of Ferguson, MO, and half of California. That’s what Hitler said…you’ve been reading too much of that guy.
Ezekiel; Indeed, I plan to have my memorial service before I die.
Ezekiel: Americans seem to be obsessed with exercising, doing mental puzzles, consuming various juice and protein concoctions, sticking to strict diets, and popping vitamins and supplements, all in a valiant effort to cheat death and prolong life as long as possible. This has become so pervasive that it now defines a cultural type: what I call the American immortal.
Nobody: I suggest you stop climbing mountains right now. You don’t exercise, or eat the right foods, no…and god forbid that someone 75 takes vitamins, or even aspirin. You and your buddy Obumer are having a real problem with American’s trying to stay on the planet aren’t you?
Ezekiel: Since 1960, however, increases in longevity have been achieved mainly by extending the lives of people over 60. Rather than saving more young people, we are stretching out old age.
Nobody: What? Young people usually don’t NEED saving. What planet on you on? How many young are you killing in the womb, now that everybody gets free abortions from your Obamacare? Is that why your overwhelming the country with sick and diseased children? So the old will die off to save them?
Ezekiel: The results show that as people age, there is a progressive erosion of physical functioning.
Nobody: I got news for you, the human body starts eroding WAY before 75.
Ezekiel: Even if we aren’t demented, our mental functioning deteriorates as we grow older. Age-associated declines in mental-processing speed, working and long-term memory, and problem-solving are well established. Conversely, distractibility increases. We cannot focus and stay with a project as well as we could when we were young. As we move slower with age, we also think slower.
Nobody: We think slower? I’d take a ‘slower’ thinker over you Ezekiel, any day of the week. All those old people bugging you? Good.
Ezekiel: By definition, few of us can be exceptions.
Ezikeil : I will leave aside the very real and oppressive financial and care giving burdens that many, if not most, adults in the so-called sandwich generation are now experiencing, caught between the care of children and parents.
Nobody: Oh, that’s it exactly, appeal to their selfish side. Just think if you had to decide between taking care of your ageing parents or going out to dinner every night. Oh, I forget, you’re talking to liberals.
Ezekiel: And while children can never fully escape this weight even after a parent dies, there is much less pressure to conform to parental expectations and demands after they are gone.
Nobody: Translation: Children will finally be free of those annoying old people. Solvent GREEN! Let’s just put a chip in everybody’s arm. Or how about a vaccine that makes everyone get sick and die at 65! Why wait?
Ezekiel: We wish our children to remember us in our prime. Active, vigorous, engaged, animated, astute, enthusiastic, funny, warm, loving. Not stooped and sluggish, forgetful and repetitive, constantly asking “What did she say?”
Nobody: I wish to remember my two-year-old child when he would always say, “Do it again!”
(Good god, this man is sick.)
Ezekiel: Once I have lived to 75, my approach to my health care will completely change. I won’t actively end my life. But I won’t try to prolong it, either.
Ezekiel: Again, let me be clear: I am not saying that those who want to live as long as possible are unethical or wrong. I am certainly not scorning or dismissing people who want to live on despite their physical and mental limitations. I’m not even trying to convince anyone I’m right. Indeed, I often advise people in this age group on how to get the best medical care available in the United States for their ailments. That is their choice, and I want to support them.
Nobody: Okay, like Obama –this last sentence is a bald-face lie. By designing Obamacare, which will kill off people—-“I want to support them.” is the biggest lie since Obama told us we cold keep our doctors, and he was born in Hawaii.
Okay. I hate this man. He is going to kill millions of people before their time by making sure they do not get any care at all. The trouble is: this ‘plan’ to kill off the old, the feeble, the weak, the unborn is a very REAL plan that permeates throughout our government.
Obamacare will kill millions. (If Ebola doesn’t get us first.) Why do think they exempted themselves from it?
This from another;
Emanuel’s push for people to die at 75 is deeply connected to Obamacare, which insists that care be rationed for the elderly – who, presumably, must be encouraged to make the same “mature” decision about death Emanuel has made. Emanuel pushes back against those attempting to lengthen their own lives, castigating them as morally deficient:
If Ezekiel Emanuel wants to die at 75, that’s his prerogative. If he wants to reshape the system so the rest of us die at 75 as well, that’s evil.
What I think of this man cannot be printed, and so, I’ll leave it at that.
Ezekiel has designed a holocaust. The man is not different from the Nazi doctors in the war camps, who stripped the Jews nude when they got off the trains, and the doctors would send the old, the weak, and the feeble to the gas chamber
The man, is a monster.
And we must scream and yell until Obamcare is repealed.
Our very lives, depend on it.
Just how far hypocrisy can go…
For instance, Better Midler just tweeted:
Gee. Bette Midler is alarmed that global warming is killing off our birds.
Notice how she fails to mention that global warming Windmills are the real reason birds are being killed off—
And since liberals HATE that symbol of American patriotism, the bald eagle is being slaughtered by Windmills. Bald Eagles are rather BIG birds. You would think the “passionate about birds deaths Bette Midler” would comprehend the massacre that is occurring, and just how long it took to bring the eagle OFF the endangered species list, and may I add, by hundreds of good citizens who worked very hard at it, and YET, it’s Obama and his friends that don’t care about birds. Nope, I guess Obama figures the symbol of American exceptionalism just has to go.
Energy facilities in 10 states have killed at least 85 golden and bald eagles since 1997, says a new government study. Just in the last five years, wind farms have killed at least 67 eagles, but the figure could be much higher, the study says.
So bug off Bette: You want to save the birds? Take down those windmills. Go sing. And by the way–what poor bird had to die to make that hat?
Obama: Forgot to Lock the Front Door of the White House, and the Muslim Brotherhood Walked Right In.
The liberals…have WAR FEVER! Can you believe it? How many years did we listen to every single democrat on the planet scream about Bush’s War? But Obama decides to start bombing in Syria, and..they are as excited as if Chelsea had a boy in the Lincoln bedroom, and it looked just like Vince Foster.
Wolf Blitzer, (Steven Kings Idol) was so excited, he could hardly contain himself: Asking hundreds of probing questions, stating that the “President” has it all under control! He is meeting with all the Muslims at the White House! (I have to use exclamation points here sorry…they really are that excited)
And it’s not just the democrats, the conservatives are all jumping for action: ALL Cable networks have gotten their panties twisted around their necks exclaiming that the enemy is ISIL, (insulting the Jews is a great pastime with them) and even though Obama brought the soldiers home like he said he would…out of nowhere, came a hoard of these evil guys, and it wasn’t Obama’s fault you know, he has more pressing problems like the fact that the White House front door is never locked.
Obama is just so damn cool: When ISIS overtook Fallujah Obama played a $700,000 game of pool. ISIS’s massive army then swept through Iraq, killing everyone in their path, a sight not seen since Genghis Khan was rolling towards Baghdad, taking town after town, raping women, slitting throats, stealing billions of dollars worth of American weapons, tanks, trucks, missiles….but…..Obama yawned, and went on vacation. He was totally ..uninterested.
Even two beheadings didn’t faze the man. Well, the world was ALWAYS a messy place he said, we just see more of it because of social media. Calm down everyone, Obama is cool. Not worried. Detached…playing golf.
After the beheadings, McCain and the conservatives were not only already forgiving him for squandering all the hard work of our men and women, they were willing to follow him to the ends of the earth. Let’s go put those boots BACK on the ground. Let’s GET those guys! We know you made a big mistake, but…let’s go!
But, Obama refused.
He sent troops to save Ebola victims. Hey…He did one of his favorite things to do…he held up traffic in New York, once again, and make it to Clintons’ Climate Orgy…and even manage make a joke about how HE never has that problem..you know…getting stuck in traffic.
He LOVES to rub into the whole world the fact that yes, he IS King. Come on…where are the good psychologists when you need them?
And THEN…out of nowhere… sometime between yesterday and my morning milk, Obama marched out all the generals and every single one of them said that…WAIT. We JUST found out that 50 Al Qaeda leaders are in Syria, so we must go bomb Syria.
What? I thought Obama decimated them?
Forget ISIS. This is more important, and on top of THAT…this will take Not two week. Not two days, but years, and years and years…and you folks will just have to get used to it.
“We had very good indications that this group, which is a very dangerous group, was plotting and planning imminent attacks against Western targets to include the U.S. homeland and it was on that basis that we struck targets, Khorasan targets inside Syria,” Pentagon spokesperson Rear Admiral John Kirby told George Stephanopolous of ABC News.
“Unlike ISIS, which is believed at present to be largely engulfed in its fight for territory. Khorasan is developing fresh plots to target U.S. aviation, and it’s trying to recruit Westerners who have flocked to the fight in Syria, some of whom have joined the al Qaeda franchise in the country, known as the al-Nusra Front… The fear is that U.S. and European passport holders could more easily smuggle explosives onto airplanes,” said former CIA deputy director Mike Morell last week.
So, what is going on? I think Joseph Farrah of WND has it about right:
Recall, if you will, what Obama’s prime foreign policy objective was just over a year ago: He was determined to bomb the regime of Syria’s Hafez Assad. That, to Obama, was the most important and critical foreign policy objective. Many people, myself included, were astonished. Assad’s regime, while despicable in many ways, was hardly a threat to U.S. interests. In addition, the people Assad was battling in his own country were ruthless killers, thugs and terrorists. In fact, it was ISIS. Assad was also providing protection of Syrian Christians and other religious minorities – and still is.
He did, (Obama) however, provide arms and munitions and your tax dollars to those rebels. Most or all of it wound up in the hands of ISIS. Thus, Obama, more than anyone else, actually fed and nursed and gave aid and comfort to ISIS. He incubated the monster it has become. He is not at war with ISIS. He is at war with all non-Sunnis in the Middle East.
I know that’s a remarkable conclusion. It’s not one I state lightly. But Obama is doing the bidding of Saudi Arabia, as many of his predecessors did. And the bidding of Saudi Arabia is Sunni jihad. It’s what Obama confusingly labeled “the Arab spring.” It is about deposing authoritarian rulers who are not Sunni jihadists, who are not disciples of the Muslim Brotherhood and who often actually serve as a moderating and life-sustaining force in the volatile Middle East.
So, Nobody Knows if Obama is just following the plans…the plans hatched by the New World Order cabal of bankers who made this plan, as Wesley Clarke said, many moons ago.
In the meantime the REASON he never looks upset, is because it’s all being handled, all he really has to do is enjoy himself and play golf, or…whatever. Make everyone sit in traffic. Tell jokes.
And we will continue to hear the same old lie: We have to kill them over there, so that we don’t have to fight here.
In the meantime, Obama is absolutely flooding our nation with dangerous men. He is letting in over 100,000 Syrians ..many of them will end up in Obama’s employ.
And Nobody Wonders who is going to get the blame WHEN America is attacked?
Nobody Knows: but it won’t be him. I’m sure by now Obama told someone to lock the front door to the White House.
Too bad we can’t lock HIM out.
Thanks to video, and Youtube, we can go back and visit that lovable guy, clueless Joe, who in this video mocks Mitt Romney for wanting to go into Syria…and Joe will also tell you, he REALLY didn’t build this in his house:
This week, we had several Nobodies in America who just couldn’t stand their job anymore, but the way they quit deserves at least a few lines on this Nobody’s not so famous page:
She pretty, she’s a cool dresser, she’s ever so articulate, but Charlo Greene, just did the report of her life on marijuana, and then…quit:
Charlo Greene was a reporter for KTVA-TV in Anchorage, Alaska. That is until Sunday night when she quit on live TV by uttering an obscenity and walking off camera.
Obviously, Charlo was more than a bit high herself when she just quit on live TV, and who doesn’t think that she was already making much more money than she could ever make as some measly token reporter? Selling pot is the biggest new market since White Lighting hit the streets of Chicago.
Can we expect more stoned reporters quitting their jobs?
Hey, I’d watch it. :)
What do you do when you don’t want to train to be a soldier in Afghan anymore? You go to the mall with your American military comrades and then say, “Hey, we’ve got to hit the hole.” (They are used to holes) and THEN instead—head for Canada.
Yes! Canada is right next door to Afghanistan! No?
Three Afghan soldiers, who went missing while in Massachusetts for military training, have been found trying to cross the border into Canada, a Defense Department official said Monday.
“I can confirm that the Canadians have them,” the official said.
The Afghan officers were reported missing late Saturday after a trip to a shopping mall in Hyannis, Mass., about 20 miles from Joint Base Cape Cod, where they were involved in a training exercise.
Earlier this month, two Afghan police officers disappeared from a Drug Enforcement Administration training program in Quantico, Va., and were found several days later in that area.
Even in my little home town we train Iraq soldiers. Not sure if they are still here, because they didn’t tell us we were paying to have Muslims trained by our police force in the FIRST place.
So you tell me…who wins the “I quit” Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week? There is a proper way to quit a job, is there not?
Was it MS Charlo, who evidently just got a job as a reporter so that she could promote her new company?
The STUPID idiot in the Pentagon (Okay,White House) who think bringing Muslims into the United States to train on our dime, where they can escape and maybe even someday blow up a few cities here win. Can this be any more idiotic? Or even treasonous?
Don’t get me started.
Who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award?
That corrupted, plutocracy of morons who call themselves the United States Government. (And since we live in a dictatorship, that means Obama.)
The ONLY thing they have perfected is disaster.
From the Drudge Report, CBS:
GLENDALE, AZ. (CBS SF) – A violent brawl in the upper deck of the University of Phoenix stadium spilled down a staircase and left several fans bloodied during the San Francisco 49ers game at Arizona Sunday.
Somebody call Anheiser Busch! This football violence is getting out of hand!
America’s favorite pastime! Football, Beer, and fighting!
Who lost their bet?
Where’s Al Sharpton when you need him?
Hey, check out that girl!
Not enough diversity in football fans.
Or…how can they even SEE the game from up there?
All fans should require helmets.
No booze allowed until after the game.
WHAT did you say about him?
And if you think our football fans our bad, just wait until American soccer starts catching on.
The rest of the world is way ahead of us.
Every day I watch my local weather guy, and every day Mr. Murry gives the temperature. If it’s 102, he’ll be quick to say, but that’s not the record…the record was set in 1913 when it was 112. I know what he’s doing: He’s telling us all that he doesn’t really believe in all this global warming panic. Because you see, unlike Al Gore and Leo De Crappio, Mr. Murry is an actual meteorologist.
It doesn’t matter how hot it gets, there is always another day in history, BEFORE rich elites were flying around the world in their jets attending global warming meetings, where it was actually hotter.
Weather has ALWAYS been extreme, but you’d never know it by the media hysteria that they are getting back into would you?
To all the liberal heated hearts out there, extreme weather has just started. Every little thunderstorm sends them them running for cover, and hovering over their candles.
A FLOOD! A FIRE! A THUNDERSTORM! TORNADO! Wow!—– When has that ever happened? What’s this world coming to?
I remember when I was just a kid in Naples, Florida, when Hurricane Donna hit. The winds got up to over 200 mph, and nobody thought that global warming caused it. We all were amazed that the little shacks that held the hobo’s stood up, while the rich mansions on the beaches were destroyed.
Why is that? Because the hobo’s KNEW not to build your house on the beach. All of them built huts miles from shore. (Not that the rich would have let them on the beach, and I know I could go into a great philosophical discussions about this, but I won’t you lucky person.)
But, yesterday, all over the world, the very organized liberal Chicken Little’s got their buses out, and came out in force. Yes—like gathering minnows in a pond after a storm, they all came out to protest our leaders for not handling the earth’s weather.
God forbid they have to weather another storm.
From Huffington Post:
“Organizers said some 550 busloads had arrived for the rally, (think of all the carbon emissions that caused) which followed similar events in 166 countries including Britain, France, Afghanistan (Afghanistan?) and Bulgaria.
“Today I am marching for my children. I am marching so they can live in a world without worrying about the next big storm destroying their community,” said Bill Aristovolus, the superintendent of an apartment building in New York City’s working-class Bronx borough.
Well, it won’t matter if a big storm hits the Bronx, Bill, they will be walking through the rain, doing without electricity, living off food stamps, because they won’t be able to afford to buy food, it will be so high.
What? Why do you think your hamburger costs so much? Thanks to the global climate wacko’s our politicians started trying to ‘wean’ us off oil. So, George W. decided to take 40 percent of our corn and make it into ethanol. What a wonderful idea! That made the corn and feed for the guy raising cattle skyrocket, and guess who he passed that along to?
YOU! Obama closed down most of our coal plants. That means your electric bill went up.
Yes, you are saving the world…feel better now?
And Obama’s not done yet—-
“On Tuesday, the Obama administration announced industry and government commitments to replace HFCs, the super-potent heat-trapping chemicals used in air conditioning, refrigeration, and insulation. This will speed the transition to next-generation technologies that use safer chemicals and less energy. And this fall the EPA is due to decide new standards to reduce the extraordinary leakage of methane — another potent climate change pollutant — from the oil and gas industry.”
God bless the EPA, the IRS, the NSA, all those little arms of the President that gives him the power to make laws WITHOUT Congress. Obama doesn’t have to worry about the temperature reading in the White House basketball court now does he?
But, the weather is getting colder, not warmer. Okay, so California is in a draught, but it’s been in one before. NOBODY looks at historical weather records anymore do they?
Face it: The Al Gore rising seas, the dying of the planet, the ice caps melting…none of that happened. They had to change global warming to climate change, because last winter the whole planet froze. People were putting their beer in the snow, because it was actually colder than their fridge.
But…when you’re a liberal trying to get the evil oil producers off the planet so YOU can make YOUR fortune on windmills, you have to come up with some other disaster besides…heat.
And they have. Now, not only is the earth heating up, but the earth is the reason…hold on…it’s going to be hard to comprehend——
The warm weather is WHY we have diseases.
Read this from Margaret Chan:
“Many of the world’s most worrisome diseases have transmission cycles that are profoundly shaped by conditions of heat and humidity and patterns of rainfall. As one important example, malaria parasites and the mosquitoes that transmit them are highly sensitive to climate variability, which has been repeatedly linked to epidemics
Climate variables contribute to natural disasters, with their related population displacements, lost livelihoods, destroyed infrastructures, and conditions of crowding and filth that favor explosive outbreaks of disease. diarrhea diseases, the second biggest killer of young children, flourish under such conditions.”
Wow. News alert. Did you know that the weather in Africa makes it prone for disease? And this is WHOSE fault? If those people can’t figure out how to build a water system and toilet, does that really mean that I should pay more for my gas?
No…like clockwork these men MEAN to control the planet and scaring people has always worked..so they are bringing out their biggest guns: Al Gore, Leo Decrapio, Obama, Huffington Post, and the one and only…
Just as Sunday’s big People’s Climate March and next week’s UN global summit on climate converge here in New York City, the nation and world are experiencing weather of an intensity that should rattle the stubborn false convictions of even the most fervent climate change denier.
Terrible flooding in India and Pakistan, the worst in more than a century, with heavy monsoon rains, 500 lives lost and hundreds of thousands left stranded… thousands of wildfires ignited by severe drought in California and the West… flash floods in Arizona… the punch of a hurricane pounding Mexico’s Baja coast, the strongest in nearly 50 years, battering locals and trapping tourists in their hotels without electricity.
There you go. If you put millions of people in a city right next to a river, you are bound to lose that house. My advice…move your house.
Frankly, I think the world just wobbled a bit, as it tends to do, the sun is doing its thing, and whenever I listen to my favorite weatherman, I often think of Albert who pretty much sums up how I feel about the whole deal:
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the
universe.”― Albert Einstein
UPDATE: It was now being said that over 400,000 people showed up to protest in New York. Don’t you wonder who paid for all those free lunches and buses?
Nobody Gets Email:
I had so many people send me this video, and Sunday morning is the PERFECT time to post it. It’s so very uplifting.
I hope this video is driving Holder and Obama out of their minds. (OMG…they let the Christians have worship? Who knew?)
These are American Marines in a prayer meeting at Camp Pendleton.
God bless them all!
(I want to go to THAT church!)
Nobody Gets Email:
It’s Saturday! Let’s get right to the good stuff:
(Thanks to Kris)
Marked dollar bill You don’t think we’re in a war?
A lady in Monte Vista, CO had this dollar bill. This is her story. After dinner she took a $1 dollar bill out of her purse and displayed it on the table. Underneath the words “In God We Trust” someone had stamped the dollar bill in red ink— NO GOD BUT ALLAH. We asked her where she got this dollar bill. She said it was part of her change in Alamosa , CO .
We took this picture of her dollar bill. These are beginning to show up all around our country! If anyone tries to give you one of these dollar bills as change, please refuse it and ask them to give you a dollar bill that has not been defaced.
Send this on to everyone you can. May God bless our USA — And quickly, before what we know and love is forever gone!
Sorry…I missed my afternoon deadline for Friday, so, Nobody Cares if I just post this really cool video of one of our soldiers (obviously somewhere in the Middle East) playing the Star Spangled Banner during Muslim prayer time.
And let’s add to that uplifting moment, this picture of a sunset that was taken on 9/11 over Richmond, VA.
Rupert Murdoch was on FOX today, and the discussion was about Scotland’s independence, and somehow the subject got around to why people all over the world were upset: He basically said that the rich are getting much richer, and the poor are getting poorer.
As long as the little guy’s life got better, he could have cared less about how rich the Duponts, or the Rockefeller’s, or even Rupert Murdoch got. But, since the great crash of 2008, the people of the world have watched the rich elites get richer, while everyone else had to make do with much less than before.
The masses are NOT happy, and Scotland is just the tip of the iceberg.
So, I thought it would be a good time to remember a senator named Huey Long. Huey was a democratic Senator from Louisiana in 1935, (during the first depression) and here are a few things he said on a radio address given in January, 1935. You will be reminded of how little the democratic party has changed:
“We ran Mr. Roosevelt for the presidency of the Unites States because he promised to us by word of mouth and in writing:
- That the size of the big man’s fortune would be reduced so as to give the masses at the bottom enough to wipe out all poverty: and
- That the hours of labor would be reduced that all would share in the work to be done and in consuming the abundance mankind produced.
What these promises meant was:”Share our wealth.”
When I saw him spending all his time of ease and recreation with the business partners of Mr. John D. Rockefeller Jr, with such men as the Astors, etc, maybe I ought to have had better sense than to have believed he would ever break down their big fortunes to give enough to them masses to end poverty. Millions of people were fooled at the same time.
He goes on:
- The Fortunes of the multimillionaires and billionaires shall be reduced so that no one person shall own more than a few million dollars to the person.
- We propose to limit the amount any one man can earn in one year or inherit to $1 million to the person.
- With that money we will provide a home and the comforts of home, with such common conveniences as radio and automobile for every family in America, free of debt.
- We guarantee food and clothing and employment for everyone who should work by shortening the hours of work to thirty hours per week, and to eleven months per year.
- .All education would be free. Even college. Why have the right to a college education depend upon whether the father or mother is so well to do as to send a boy or girl to college.
- A pension to everyone over 60.
- Forgive everybody’s debt.
The few own everything, the masses own nothing.
I imagine Huey would be very popular with Obama if he were alive today, and Harry Reid would have serious competition.
Of course, Huey’s ideas are nothing new. He was popular in his day. According to Wikipedia, he did a lot of good things for Louisiana for the short time he was there. Many of Huey’s wildest dreams of wealth redistribution have actually been put in place by the democratic party.
And if he were alive today, he would be saying the very same things, and I’m sure would have just as big a following as he did in 1935.
Getting back to Rupert Murdoch and Scotland—Nobody has quite figured out how to stop the rich elites from grabbing all the power and wealth, while millions of other people lead lives of “quiet desperation.” We don’t need to take the money from the rich, we just need the rich to stop stacking the deck in their favor.
Figure THAT out, and you’d have a whole new world.
I watched this video a couple of times: This is Army veteran and Chaplain, Nicholas Purpura, of New Jersey. And here, he gets into a great rant about gun control.
He speaks the truth and expresses the anger that we all feel. The first time I watched it, I was mesmerized by his words and felt…. proud. Proud to see such an American.
And then the SECOND time I watched it, I couldn’t help but notice the guy sitting right next to him.
Is it me? Or did that guy seem very condescending?
Anyway, Nicholas Purpura of New Jersey…congratulations! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week!
Keep up the good fight Mr. Purpura!
(And next time, turn around and ask that guy if he likes his sugar in his coffee or in his tea.)
This was coming from my friend Ruth, a German woman who survived the bombing of Dresden. “and then she MARRIES him!”
I was sitting across the table at our annual “old ladies who swim” luncheon today, and I watched Ruth grab her hamburger and shake her head in disbelief.
She makes a good point, I thought: Since when do people lose their jobs for something they don’t do on the job? This is happening every single day. Even kids are getting kicked out of school for something they don’t even DO in school.
Even thirty years ago, this would not have happened.
She was talking about the subject that has been all over the news for two whole weeks. A football player named Ray Rice, was caught on video, knocking his girlfriend to the floor in an elevator. He then dragged her out of the elevator, and took her home. Obviously, they were both drunk.
Everybody knows that this happens more than we care to think about. Black men beat up their women at a rate higher than white men. Muslim men liked it so much, they wrote it into their religion.
But the excommunication ball got rolling in the fast pace of public lynching: The NFL suspended Ray Rice for life.
Then another football player named Andrian Peterson beat his kid, and we started on the subject all over again.
Well, that did it. Nike terminated Peterson’s deal, worth $750,000 a year. Although it didn’t end its relationship with Michael Vick (the dogfighter), Kobe Bryant OR Tiger Woods.
Anheuser-Busch weighed in on it too.
“We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season. We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league,” the statement said.
So, it’s okay to CHEAT on your wife, abuse animals, but…you can’t knock a woman out cold. (And make sure you don’t mention you just had a few Buds)
Maybe we need to review what moral code everybody is following. Like Obama’s war strategy, it’s all over the map.
We have MORE:
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges in connection with two altercations at his home in July involving a woman and an 18-month-old child, the latest in a string of such cases involving NFL players.
Wow. The NFL is on a roll…
Glenn Back had this to say, and I would imagine there are a lot of people who agree with him:
“I’m telling you right now that the only things that matter are principles and values, how you deal with people, how you behave in your personal life and how you behave in your business life,” Beck said. “That’s it. … If you don’t start falling in line with true values, if you don’t start falling into line with eternal principles and common decency, your business is over. It’s just over. And I give that message to the NFL.”
“We are teaching our kids that it doesn’t matter what you do in your personal life, as long as you excel at whatever it is that you do,” Beck concluded. “That’s wrong. That’s showing them that money is over everything else. It’s not.”
Wait…”WE” ? Who are ‘we’? Let’s get this straight. Before the private lives of football players became the most discussed subject on the National stage, we had the private lives of politicians to talk about…only the media cleverly HID all their abuse, (and killings, and murders, and wife beatings) for years.
Glenn Beck was saying today that the State Department was covering up prostitution rings by their ambassadors.
Bill Clinton raped a woman. He kept his job…he almost bit her tongue off. He embarrassed a whole country with his philandering, and he is one of the most popular men on the planet.
And how about those liberal values? Aren’t they really to blame for most of this? John Kennedy…FDR…no values. No principles. How many horn dogs have occupied the White House, and what kind of example do THEY set for the rest of the nation?
Is Nike or Anheuser Busch going to come out and publicly ostracize them?
Yes, we all want morals. But…I can’t help but go back to Ruth.
BEFORE cameras, before NSA, before… Face it, your cooked book…. before cell phones, American’s private lives almost never effected their jobs. Unless of course they got arrested.
We are in a whole new world of crime and punishment. I’m just wondering when they are going to be putting this stuff up on BIG screens throughout the cites.
I heard a male friend of mine say with a resounding gusto of testosterone and common sense of justice…YES!
Nobody Thinks this stuff has happened since the beginning of time, but only NOW with government surveillance, does the whole world get to punish you, and then Nobody Wins when we are all on camera.
In 1984, there was a camera in every room watching your every move.
If I was Ray’s Wife, I’d get him that new giant HD Samsung TV.
We are all spies now.
It’s pretty simple I think, but nobody talks about it.
The people who have worked for the President usually go right into top positions as commentators on major Cable networks after they leave, where they continue to push their former boss’s agenda’s on a daily basis.
Here’s a few, that IF I was running a ‘fair and balanced’ news program, should NEVER have gotten jobs simply because of their bias.
Jay Carney: Jay has left the White House and is now going to be a network commentator on CNN. He had this to say about Obama:
I am who I am. I deeply believed in what I did and what he has done as president. And I don’t walk away from that at all. There is no nirvana, but CNN‘s mission is news-focused. They are not actively pursuing a niche in one political camp or the other. I believe in the president, believe in the rightness of his policies. I’m also my own person, and I’m going to express my views. But it would be disingenuous to suddenly pretend that I wasn’t loyal to [the president].
At least he admits it.
So daily we will be seeing a warrior of Obama propaganda on CNN. Of course, this is no surprise since his wife Claire Shipman (a senior correspondent for ABC news), now works with that OTHER famous presidential advisor, George Stephanopoulos, who was Bill Clinton’s advisor.
He now has his own show. They cover all the progressiveness you can handle.
But, it makes one just as mad that on the other side you have Dana Perino, who was George W. Bush’s press secretary, AND the every so unlovable, Karl Rove.
Dana especially is almost the poster girl for the Bushes and keeping their legacy in the limelight. Karl, on the other hand…stole the chalkboard idea from Glenn Beck and is driving us all crazy, because to this nobody, he has been ruthless in destroying good citizens for office, that want to actually help America.
I can’t stand the guy anymore.
So, how real is the news? Our news has now become basically a two-sided propaganda machine, meant to tell you what to think whether you’re a liberal, or a republican, and as we all know, the two sides may act like they hate each other, but they both end up doing the very same thing: Promote the two-party plutocracy.
MOST of the political pundits on the talk shows have all worked for Presidents, and they..NOT the independent citizen reporters, are shaping our news.
