Jean Schmidt’s Threatening Voicemail

I’ve had a couple of my left-wing readers email me asking why I don’t talk about it (BTW, don’t be afraid to use the comments section and let everyone hear your opinions). Honestly, I really was ignoring the whole idiots inciting violence story. The last thing these morons need is more publicity. But, I noticed that Rush Limbaugh’s show was flooded with coverage of it, and I took a look at MSNBC (while trying to hold my dinner down) and it seemed they didn’t have any other stories to cover. I suppose that means I should put my $0.02 on it lest someone say I’m dodging a huge story (which I still say it isn’t).

I’ll start by pointing out that anyone who thinks only idiotic people from the right make threats is insane. Let’s just start by looking at the pundits. It’s bad enough that right-wing pundits receive threats almost daily (I’ve got my share as well). It’s even worse that left-wing pundits themselves make statements that are borderline threats.

Now for those of you misinformed enough to believe that suggestions of violence only comes from right-wing idiots, here’s some of the latest examples of violence from left-wing idiots.

Dingell: ObamaCare will “Control the People”

OK, honestly, is this really a surprise? Anyone with a clue already knows this is about taking away more individual freedom and increasing government dependence. Thomas Jefferson could power the world as much as he’s spinning in his grave from this monstrosity.

Hat Tip: Cavenews

Health Care Tanning Tax Starting

Yay! It’s here! The first new tax for health care is finally here! It only took about 36 hours from the time Congress passed the health care bill before the first new tax was enacted. This one is a 10% tax on tanning beds.

But that’s not all, let me tell you what else you’ve won. You also get increased taxes on insurers (don’t worry, they’ll pass the cost on to you), increased taxes on drugmakers (oh, fear not, that cost will be passed on to your prescriptions, it won’t bother them), increased taxes on medical device companies (again, they’ll just pass the taxes along to you for your new pacemaker), and new taxes on Americans making more than $200,000 a year (you know, those people that own small businesses and provide over half of all private sector jobs, so they’ll just lower wages or cut employees, no big deal).

Isn’t this new health care program just great? I know I’m excited that I will no longer be able to do something as simple as decide to take high-deductable insurance. It’s hard to wait until the “Cadillac” policy tax goes into effect.  All this for the 47 million… huh? 30 million? really? I thought he said…  ok…  30 million new people…  Maybe that’s ObamaMath (like 57 states?).

Head over to John John Goodman’s Health Policy blog for some real facts. There could be 33 million lose medicare coverage alone thanks to the cuts.  Throw in higher health care costs, additional taxation, potential for rationing of care, increased IRS investigation, and you need a considerable amount of ObamaMath in to spin this into a positive thing!

Obama: 5 Days to Look at Every Bill

Well, if my math is correct, health care will get signed sometime Friday night. After all, Obama promised we’d have 5 days to look at every bill before he would sign anything that reached his desk. Remember that pledge?

Not So Random Acts of Arrogance

Is anyone else noticing the outright arrogance of this administration? They are completely ignorant of public opinion (not to mention the constitution).  Obama’s victory speech tried to say that America was listened to and he delivered what they wanted. Has he not seen the polls? Is he truly that far out of touch with reality or is he getting bad intelligence data from someone?

Then you have Jessie Jackson giving a smug look at tea partiers and grabbing at their signs, clearly attempting to bait them.

Al Sharpton understands what Obama’s change means.  The man is claiming that Americans voted overwhelmingly for the way Obama is transforming the country, and if it is Socialism, so be it.  His delivery is amazingly smug.
