Get Off Your High Horse “Independents”

Posted in politics by roving on September 26, 2010

I have been noticing it more and more. People calling into talk radio bragging they are an “independent” Like they think they are Gods gift to the world and need their butts continually kissed.  “Hello, I’m one of them independents.” Well big whoopdeedoo.  Half the people calling in I think are really Democrats. Some are Republicans afraid to admit it just so they can bash the Republican party. Or they may be feel embarrassed to admit they are Republican.

I heard one radio personality ask an “independent” caller a series of questions. The Independent turned out to be a Republican. Even the radio personality had to tell him ‘Um, you’re a Republican.”

I don’t believe in independents. You either believe in one way or the other. If you like high taxes and more government control, you’re a Democrat. If you prefer smaller government and lower taxes, you’re a Republican.  An Independent is a like a spoiled child begging for attention. If they don’t get their way, they will vote for the other side out of meanness, being gullible,or like some who voted out of white guilt.

When I hear someone call themselves a Independent, my first thought is so what and I picture a baby sucking on a pacifier.

DNC Wants RNC To Sign Joint Civility Suit. (With A Straight Face)

Posted in politics by roving on March 27, 2010

The DNC has no proof of which party has shown”violence” against the democrats by throwing bricks through democratic office buildings but are working on the assumption Republican supporters are the ones doing it even though there are a lot of real Democrats along with most of the country also against the health bill.

Politico.com The Democrats with their fake concern wanted the Republicans to join them in signing a worthless piece of paper that called for “elected officials of both parties to set an example of the civility we want to see in our citizenry.”

“We also call on all Americans to respect differences of opinion, to refrain from inappropriate forms of intimidation, to reject violence and vandalism, and to scale back rhetoric that might reasonably misinterpreted by those prone to such behavior,”

If I were to document all the violence from the left against the right, I would need to open up another blog account so I could continue with part two.  If the Democrats and the media cant show its the Republicans throwing stones, they just make things up like saying they spit on Representatives and call them the N word. (Still waiting on the Video to pop up all over the place of that happening)

Maybe I can be of some help to the Democrats:

There was a movie made about assassinating a sitting U.S. President. Oh wait. That was done by the left against Bush.

Seniors were spat on, shoved, called names, police cars vandalized, dumpsters burned.  Opps. That was done by the left during the Republican convention.

Sarah Palins church was burned down. The gas line and phone lines were cut. Children were inside the church. Dammit, again, by the left.

A vice President contender was hung in effigy. Crap, that was done by the left to Sarah Palin.

Protesters with signs and yelling about wanting to  kill a sitting president.  Wait. That was towards Bush.

The vandalizing of military recruitment offices. The left again.

The shouting down and forcing Conservative speakers with threats of violence  to leave stages in colleges. Lefties. After all, only the left is allowed the privilege of free speech. How arrogant of the right not knowing that.

The assassinations of Lincoln and JFK by guess who. The left.

The hangings of blacks in the south, being against civil rights of blacks, and in favor of segregation. . Democrats of course.

Voting in KKK member Byrd for Senator  and who is still serving. Democrats

Voting in a Kennedy who let a woman die a slow horrible death while he covered his tracks. Yet again, Democrats. Hey Ted, bet you wish you have a nice cool glass of water about now.

Shots being fired at Lou Dobbs house. Lefties again.

Burning down of buildings and torching car lots in the name of the environment. lefties yet again.

By a complete sheer coincidence a shot fired in the air finds its way into the window of Republican’s Cantor campaign office.  Amazing! Who by the way says he receives threatening emails often because he is a Jew and we know how much the left hates the Jews.

The MSM calling every day  normal people terrorists.  Wishing certain Republicans death or illnesses on national TV.

The vile things Bill Maher says about Christians and Republicans on his show and the lefties clap and laugh.

Read some of the comments posted in the Huffington Post sometime. Oh, wait. Don’t do that. You may find its leftards who post the hate filled rhetoric. We can’t have facts shown by the right. Thats a no no. DO NOT GO THERE.

Nancy Pelosi calling Americans who disagree with her Nazis.

Wanting Conservative talk radio shows shut down so the people will only hear the White house talking points and  propaganda from the left.

Taking everything Rush Limbaugh says out of context and “making things up” yet says nothing about what people like Ed Schultz says on his radio program…and TV.

SO you Democrats with your fake concerns, you do not fool me at all. You people own the word rhetoric.  Before you blame the right, look in the mirror.

Think ObamaCare Wont Deny You? Think Again

Posted in politics by roving on March 26, 2010

Our seniors are going to take a really big hit because of the cuts in their Medicare. Obama is stealing over $500 billion from the seniors and shifting it to Medicaid. Obama calls this a deficit cut and he just may be telling the truth because now that millions of people will be shifted into Medicaid, people will be refused treatment and care.  This is where Obama’s “Maybe your mother would be better off taking a pain pill” comes into play.

Walgreens in Washington State will be denying all new Medicaid patients. Do you think it will only be in the state of Washington? Do you think Walgreens will be the only one starting to refuse Medicaid patents? No. Its going to slowly spread across the United States. Why should Walgreens or any other business pay for a patient prescriptions out of their own pocket? If they do, they wouldn’t be in business for long.  In my state of IL they are behind something like 6 months in reimbursing businesses.

Premiums will and have started to skyrocket and people will not be able to afford to hang onto their health insurance even though Obama SAID our premiums would drop $2500 per employee. Within a few years, health insurance companies will be forced out. This has been Obama’s plan all along.

Its just common sense that health care will be rationed and in order for it to be rationed, there will have to be a panel to deny care due to cost and some will die because of it. So yes Virginia there will be death panels because we already have them.  People are denied all the time. In private insurance and government insurance.

Doctors are already beginning to quit or state they will be. Less doctors mean waiting lists. People will die while waiting for care.  With Obama’s plan there will be no escaping it. If the Republicans health plan was approved, the chances of being denied would have been reduced drastically because it would have opened up the insurance companies to competition and  a larger pool of people to cover for the sick.

The Republicans have a real good plan and with luck after they take back control and attempt to repeal the disaster Obama made into law,  we will see real reform. The Republican plan is 4 pages long with common sense ideas compared to Obama’s 2,000+ page of control, deny, and death.

Why not let a doctor talk about his experience from a comments section at Pajamas Media:

I am a pediatric physical therapist. I routinely treat children with private insurance, Medicaid, and private pay. Medicaid coverage is so poor that my decision making process is markedly different for children on government health care, as I know they will receive a fraction of the services needed to best deal with their conditions. Children with severe neurological conditions(traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury) are routinely denied treatment that any other insurance provider would deem necessary. Private health care companies pay for these treatments as they recognize the connection between improved health/ mobility/ independence and reduced lifetime health costs. Medicaid does not. Wisconsin Medicaid is particularly nonsensical. Everyone, including young children, have 35 lifetime physical therapy visits. Once they are gone, you can apply for more sessions, but in nearly all cases treatment is denied. Examples of recent denials I have received:


A 19 year old one year status post traumatic brain injury had gained the ability to hold her head upright and turn her head to track conversations and people in the room. (A HUGE DEAL- imagine not being able to control where you are looking!). She also gained improved ability to consistently bear weight through her legs when transferring out of her wheelchair. (Another big deal- her mother had been lifting her. Imagine lifting your teenager any time she needed to be moved). Denied- “No functional progress.”

A seven year old with cerebral palsy had frequent respiratory infections. In PT she gained the trunk control to sit independently and gained sufficient respiratory control to cough and to swallow her own saliva without choking. (The respiratory component is huge- when a child with limited motor control dies, it is generally due to pneumonia). Denied- “No functional progress.”

The hardest part of my job is talking with parents who know their child’s independence, health, and ability to safely get through the day will be compromised due to Medicaid restrictions. Increased government control over health care will wreak havoc among the countries most vulnerable populations, as having health insurance is not the same as getting appropriate health care.

The Democrats are not only using this health care as a way to control our lives, they are going to use it as a population control as well.



My Fellow Republican Comrades. Stop Apologizing

Posted in politics by roving on March 22, 2010

Today I have been putting comrade in front of the names of anyone I talked to since we are turning towards a communists style country I wanted to know how it would feel.

I watched the whole debate all the way through the “vote” of the health care bill. When Stupak stood up and lied through his teeth, Rep. Randy Neugabauer yelled out “Baby Killer” or “It will kill babies.”  I had no problem with comrade Randy yelling this out. My problem is he apologized for it.

Just as comrade Joe Wilson yelled out to Obama, ‘You Lie” then later a apologized for the comment, I have something I want to tell my fellow comrades. STOP APOLOGIZING!. You said nothing wrong. You were right for saying what you did.

The Democrats call us names all the time. (teabaggers among others names). Do they apologize? No they don’t. The Democrats lie trying to smear our fellow comrades. For example claiming someone shouted out “Kill him” during a comrade McCain rally. Just Sunday the black caucus lied by claiming they were spit on and called names even though they forget people film everything now a days and the film shows it never happen. Did they say they were sorry for lying? No they didn’t.

Comrades, when you say your sorry, you appear weak. Defend yourselves for crying out loud. When you speak the truth, we will stand behind you. You have nothing to apologize for. We agree with you.

Be strong damn it.

Do We Really Want These People In charge Of Our Health?

Posted in politics by roving on February 14, 2010

Everyone laughed at Sarah Palin when she called out Obama on the death panels. They denied any such thing as they quietly removed it from the bill. However, never trust Obama and his far left Democrats. They are bound and determined to control our health.  It would be the ultimate power of having life and death put in their little greedy hands.

When a tumor was found on Robert Novaks brain, Gibson had Angry Rich and Christine scour the lefty blogs. Listen to this and you decide, do you really want people like this in charge of your health. Its scary stuff.

This is just every day kind of blogs the left puts out there. They call us the party of hate. Listen and you tell me, are liberals the forgiving, friendly type you would want to be friends with?

This one is about the assassination of Banazir Bhutto in Pakistan in 2007 and the left blogs blamed, you got it. Bush. George Bush had Bhutto killed according to the left. The blaming Bush thing is so out of hand, everything from natural disasters to a clogged toilet is Bush’s fault.

If They Lied Then, Why Believe Them Now

Posted in politics by roving on January 12, 2010

I will never buy the Palin bashing book, Game Changer. Reading excerpts for free is fine by me. I hope this book finishes Steve Schmidt’s career or if we’re lucky he will switch over to the Democrats and take his “expertise” to the next Democrat running for president. He does that, Mickey Mouse could  beat whoever the Dems choose to run.

If the book is to be believed, that means about everything Sarah wrote in her book, Going Rogue was a lie. Hmm, who to believe. Sarah Palin the christian God fearing woman, or a bald headed looking dufuss?  I’ll stick with Sarah Palin. The giveaway that the book is full of lies against Sarah is they went overboard. Maybe if they stuck with a couple of things it may have sounded more believable. When I saw Sarah didn’t know the difference between North and South Korea, then I knew this book is full of crap. What I found odd was, I have yet to see excerpts of  how much of an idiot Obama was. To me, that’s just another clue.

This book is just another cover-up for the greatness of Obama from What I can tell so far. As much as I dislike Hillary, she is right. There was fraud. People were bused in to commit voter fraud during  the caucuses and after. There were many people reporting how Obama’s people were playing dirty.  I remember  the witnesses describing what had happen.  Voter fraud was happening in almost every state and all in favor of Obama.

This book is revenge mainly against Sarah because instead of reporters doing their job, they were up in Alaska digging through trash cans trying to find anything they could on Sarah Palin but couldn’t find anything so just made things up or reported rumors.  If they lied then, why should I believe them now? To this day the media reports half truths or refuse to report stories.  They continue to cover for Obama just as they did during the campaign.

Look, I have eyes and ears and I paid close attention the the campaign. Over and over I would ask myself what the hell is McCain doing? Why isn’t he going after Obama hard? It was a very frustrating campaign to watch. It hit me later they were losing on purpose and Sarah’s book only confirmed my belief. Everything possible they could do wrong, they did. I wasn’t the only one frustrated with McCain’s campaign. It was all over the blog-sphere. Schmidt was upset Sarah actually wanted to win the election.

I never seen a picture of Steve Schmidt before and when I finally did a few days ago, I could see why McCain lost. My first thought was, I wonder if he sucks his thumb every night before falling asleep while clutching his teddy bear. He reminds me of a spoiled child.

I seen how Katie Couric and Charles Gibson treated Sarah compared to how they treated Obama. They purposely tried tripping her up along with heavy editing to make sure she looked bad.  They repeatedly reported false rumors as fact.

Schmidt let the news media get away with the false reporting of any news to do with Sarah while stabbing her in the back with leaks.

As for the stories about racists remarks Clinton and Reid said,  nothing surprises me about the Democrats anymore. They are the party of hate and racists.  Only Democrats are allowed to break tax laws and continue to remain in office. Only Democrats are allowed to  spit in peoples faces, burn cars, trash anywhere they show up in in groups, silence free speech, become violent, etc.

The real game changer is coming. Its coming this fall then again in 2012

America Rising: An Open Letter to Democrat Politicians

Posted in politics by roving on January 3, 2010

We elected you (well not me) on a promise of hope and change. You’ve disappointed us. (well not me) In 2010, we are taking the country back.

The Word Black Is Racist

Posted in politics by roving on November 27, 2009

The word black should be removed from the dictionaries and anyone mentioning the word is racist.

Sounds a little silly doesn’t it?  I swear it seems to me some people just sit around all day and think up just the dumbest things they can call racists. They have no life and live to try and make others more miserable and guilty. It doesn’t work but they give it their best shot.

Its Democrats who do this. The weird thing is, its the Democrats who have been the racists for years. After over 100 yrs of being racists, who are they to tell the rest of us what or who should be considered racist?

To this day they continue to be racists by trying to keep the blacks down and in their place by offering them all kinds of free money and programs in the hopes they wont pick themselves up and try and make something of themselves.  The blacks remind me of the Jews who voted for Obama. Obama hates the Jews but the Jews ignore what is in their face and vote for him anyway.  The blacks keep voting for a party who keeps them in check by reminding them how they can’t make it on their own. The Democrats idea for prosperity for the blacks are food stamps and welfare because they know once they are on that long enough, its very hard to get away from it and if they want to continue to receive welfare they need to keep voting Democrat .  Its a very neat trick.  Its a lie but hey, it works.

Joy Behar apparently had nothing to do one day while taking a dump and came up with an idea. Hey I could go on TV and prove to everyone how a moron thinks by asking the question, isn’t it racist to call it Black Friday?

Its hard to fathom how people like this even gets on TV.  Surely there are brighter people out there trying daily to break into TV or radio.  I think its time to give a few people one.  The ones we have now are so out there, they really need some professional help.

The word racists should be next to the word Democrat in the dictionary.  Joy needs to look into the history of her party before calling anyone a racist. That includes all Democrats.

A Democrat Who Is Republican

Posted in politics by roving on November 4, 2009

A friend at work voted for Obama. He absolutely hated Bush. He watches the three news networks for all his information so I can see how he would think the way he does. He only hears the Democrats side of news stories.  In other words, he is very very uninformed and brainwashed.

What really gave it away was when he told me a couple times “Obama is the hardest working President we ever had.”  He word for word mimicked the network news.  Of course he has yet to tell me exactly what it is that Obama has done that was so hard and good for the country. All I see is someone who put our Grandchildren  in debt, ignores the Constitution, parties a lot, travels around to other countries, and plays a whole lot of golf. I may ask him next time what he thinks Obama has done just out of curiosity and a good laugh.

What I have noticed about my friend is we think alike on things.

We agree on:

Lower taxes.

For the death penalty.

Against paying taxes for welfare cheats.

Freedom of speech.

Everyone should have equal rights.

To many laws using the excuse, because its “for the children.”

Drill for oil.

Against taxing for things that they claim “isn’t good for us.”

Tolerance

I should inform him that just maybe he has been voting for the wrong party.  The Democrats are for:

High taxes

Against death penalty unless its a innocent baby in a womb

For giving welfare cheats our tax money, and I’ll throw in tax cheats.

Against freedom of speech unless its something in their favor.

Some have more rights then the majority.

They use “Its for the children” as an excuse to take away more of our rights.

Against drill for oil. Would rather we be hostage to other counties and at the same time help other countries drill.

They treat us like little children thinking they know whats best for us only so they have more power over our lives.

Intolerant. (look at a liberal comments if you have the stomach)

I’m thinking he doesn’t really know what Republicans stand for. If he would just take the time and study both sides he would realize we are not the enemy.  its the Democrats who want to intrude in his life, shut him up and take his money.

I may ask him if he Knows the difference between the two. Something tells me he does not.

Liberals Days Are Numbered

Posted in politics by roving on October 28, 2009

2008_election_map-counties

Add the fact so called “independents” are running away from Obama and a lot of Democrats who for some reason didn’t realize Obama was a commie,  there is going to be a whole lot more red.

Obama knows what’s coming. That’s why he is in such a rush to get his unconstitutional,  job killing, tax raising programs passed now.

I guess he can forget about this.

Will Media Help Sell the New Obama American Flag

Republicans Health Care Plan

Posted in politics by roving on October 6, 2009

By reading liberal blogs I get the impression they think the Republicans don’t have a health care plan. Well not actually a impression but a fact. Of course it doesnt help matters much when…

1. Obama tells bold faced lies and says they don’t. That or he really is an uninformed moron.

2. The media is so far in the tank for Obama they wont report it and  choose to continue with the lie. The Messiah must not be confronted is their point of view.

The biggest difference between the two is the cost. Obama’s will tax us till we are broke and add trillions to the deficit. The Republican plan wont raise taxes, is more of a common sense plan.

I don’t know how many know this but health care came about to be used ONLY for things like hospitalizations. It was never meant to be used for seeing a doctor because you had a sniffle. The more that was added to the health insurance, the more the price went up.

Republicans want the people to be able to buy insurance across state lines. Each state has their own laws making it impossible to buy insurance out of your state so people are stuck with just a few companies. Insurance costs would drop considerably just by doing away with the nit picking laws each state has and open up competition.

Tort reform. the way it is now, if a doctor removes the wrong ingrown toenail, the patient is rewarded with enough money to retire for life. This also makes health insurance high.  They should only be rewarded enough to pay medical expenses and smaller amount of the jackpot. Each medical mistake is capped to a certain amount.

Tax credits. They would stop giving the employee a tax break for providing insurance to the employees and instead give it straight to the people. $2.300 per person and $5,700 to families.

Health insurance savings plans. Able to put money aside tax free for health catastrophes.

Obama wants to fine you if you don’t get health insurance up to $25,000 or one year in jail.  Of course if 48% of  doctors polled  that say they will quit if Obama’s plan passes, you may still have health insurance but no doctor to use it for.

How A Democrat Wins Elections

Posted in politics by roving on October 5, 2009

I find it odd the majority of the people have the same beliefs as a Republican but the Democrats do so well getting elected. People may say its the independents that do it. I don’t believe in independents. You either believe one way or the other. True the Republicans haven’t been acting like Republicans in a while.

The Democrats need five things to win.

1. Have the media and papers on your side so they only report half truths about what you say or do. When a Democrat gets in trouble, make sure their party isn’t mention. If need be, mention party affiliation near the bottom of the story. Call the Republicans racists and pretend to be outraged at some comment they made but don’t bring up the same or worse deeds the Democrats have done.

2.  Make the people  think they are for the little guy. But look at their actions and history. They were against civil rights.  Say things like we wont raise your taxes but do it anyway. Hell, they make up silly excuses just to do it. The sugar tax comes to mind.  No, what a Democrat does is keep you down. They need you to fail so you come crawling to them for help hoping for a handout. Now they got ya.

3. Blame everything they did on the Republicans very loudly and often. You tell a lie long enough, it becomes fact.  Bank failures were all on the Dems AND Obama’s head but who do the people blame? The Bush administration who tried a few times to reign in Freddy and Fanny but to no avail because the Democrats lied that there was no problem with the banks.

4. ACORN. This is a must. ACORN is supposed to be bi-partisan but we all know that isn’t true. When is the last time you saw ACORN campaigning for a Republican?  ACORN can be helpful in getting Mickey Mouse and Pluto to register to vote.  They are also miracle workers because they are able to bring the dead back to life long enough to vote. Intimidation is also a helpful tool.

5. Suppress the military vote just like Virgina  is doing. You know, do things like send out ballets to the service people the day BEFORE the election. The Democrats  know the people in the military are mostly Conservative so their vote must be squashed. So what if they are  the reason we have a voting process. After all, these are Democrats. They only care about themselves.

So in a nutshell, there you have it. Hopefully ACORN will be taken out of the picture soon and maybe the playing field will be slightly more even.

My next lesson…how to make a mayo sandwich.

The hypocritical democrats

Posted in politics by roving on August 23, 2009
PS C POLITICAL JOKER GEORGE HW BUSH ALT 6

If the Democrats wasn’t so pathetic it would be almost laughable.  When Bush was president and the unemployment went up to 5%, they were all saying we were doomed.  recession was upon us. The figures for Obama go down from 9.5 to 9.4% using funny math, everything is looking good. The recession is over. Were on our way to a jobless recovery.

Bush left office with  650billion deficit and they were all up in arms. Obama’s deficit is going to run up to 10 trillion or more and that seems to be okay because well, its Obama bankrupting the country and that makes it good.

left-burning-GWB-effigy1 Posters of Obama being plastered all over as the Joker is racists. People calling Obama another Hitler is racists and very very wrong. We shouldn’t say them things about Obama. We should be ashamed of ourselves. Yet Bush being compared to Hitler, the Joker, signs calling for Bush’s house to be bomb, burning Bush in effigy, making a movie about a Bush assassination  was fine. Its freedom of speech.

Bush spying on Americans (even though they cannot come up with even one American it actually happening to) was unconstitutional. Obama not dropping it must be okay because I hear nothing from them in protest. Obama wanting people to turn in other people, wanting them to get into others faces, calling out his thugs to silent the opposition must also be okay with them because it isn’t Bush doing all that. If it were, could you imagine the news outcry and the coverage that would have gotten?

We put up with a hell of a lot from the Democrats during Bush’s presidency and now its been payback time.  Even the MSM and the libs are having problems trying to keep our side in check. They continually call us racists, right wingers, and wingnuts and it isn’t working.

What they must not have realized was WE outnumber THEM. Most have been staying silent, letting the slander and goading happen.  Obama thought everyone would love him. He was going to bring the world together and it would be nothing but rainbows and sugar candy. We would all hold hands and just let communism take hold of this country with no fight.  Well, he thought wrong. One thing Americans love is freedom.

I will give Obama this. He has jerked the sleeping giant awake, forced them to look again at our constitution and do not like seeing where we are headed.  People who have never been involved in politics and never really paid attention are now rising up to be heard.

I personally now of a person who changed from Democrat to Republican and I’ll lay odds there are thousands just like her.

It must suck  for the libs to have their own playbook used against them.  Your games no longer work but it is working against you.  The beauty of it is the Democratic Reps are stuck between a rock and a hard place. No matter what they do, their days are numbered.

AX034842 You overplayed your hand and it has come back to bite you. Now that’s priceless
