The Snickering Starts

obama-joker-socialism.jpg

Not a bad headshot of our rock star president, even if it doesn't capitalize on the way the sun glints off his chiseled pectorals. The poster above has been blooming in Los Angeles:

obama-joker-socialism_1.jpg

Nobody knows who's responsible, but no doubt Homeland Security is looking into it feverishly.

The higher they're hyped, the harder they fall. Laughingstock status is not far down the road for The One and his glassy-eyed moonbat supporters.

I don't understand the link between socialism - Obama - and the latest Joker from the Batman series. Or is this simply meant to be inflammatory?

Posted by: Nicole at August 2, 2009 1:57 PM

Inflammatory and that socialism is crazy like the Joker.

Get it?

Nicole, please do try to keep up?

Whoops. With all the energy put into it I thought there might be something clever I was missing.

Posted by: Nicol at August 2, 2009 2:07 PM

Beyond the shock of it actually of happened (someone actually made these anti-O bills and posted them in LA - shock), it will be very interesting to see if this catches on.

When I see pictures of these posted in Seattle, Chicago, D.C., Memphis, Philli, NYC and Detroit, I'll think this is a trend.

Posted by: Oiao at August 2, 2009 2:13 PM

Darn.

Forgot to ask. Where do I get some? I've got the San Franfreakshow bay covered, if I can get some.

Posted by: Oiao at August 2, 2009 2:14 PM

interesting. in the movie the dark knight, batman was figuratively g w bush and this puts obama as his antithisis.
i agree completely.

Posted by: ceperez at August 2, 2009 2:16 PM

I want to hang these all over Memphis.

Especially in the 9Th district.

Where Can I get these posters?

Posted by: Dave at August 2, 2009 2:41 PM

If you guys are serious about wanting posters, (ha, posters wanting posters) just save the image and bring it to your local Photoshop where they can blow it up for you. I think someones going to save this image and start selling it on shirts, hats etc. I would if I had time and needed some dough.

You're certainly free to disagree, but it's very important for you to understand that you're incorrect.

Certainly when one appropriately ignores the snake oil sales pitches from Obama, and solely focus on his actions, one can see that his primary goal is to socialize America. But a person sometimes needs to mute his mouth in order to see this.

Socializing medicine is merely the first step, because creating a population that depends on government for their health, will make that population more compliant far easier to inflict with socialist policies.

The modern Democrats are socialists. In fact, there have only been a handful of genuine Democrats in office since the late 60's. The vast majority of Democrats since then have been counterfeit Democrats, socialists masquerading as liberals.

I confess I'm not as bright as many, but I don't believe Obama is a Socialist! A Socialist simply wants a simple transition where government acquires and runs private enterprise.

Also, are we moving at the speed of light here? I have to run the 'Kenyan Birth Certificate' through Jim's 'Acme Decoder Lite'...WND certainly deserves the scoop on the birth issue for their long-term effort, but we should leave it be for a FEW DAYS while the Left self-destructs.

I believe I know most of the pertinent facts, from Obigot's Kenyan grandma testimony, to his dad's Phillipine Muslim entry application, to the two historical types of Hawaiian birth certificates, to my friend in Hawaii (where I used to teach flying) who has researched this ad infinitum, and has written extensively on it. As early as two days ago I was E-mailing Jason Hommel regarding this and the importance that conservatives lay low for a short while (except WND). We're conservatives, we stay calm. Liberals, who obsess on emotion, will be so freaked they will take this into orbit. And it will be............Checkmate.

Nicole at August 2, 2009 5:53 PM- "Perhaps a socialist democrat. But not a socialist."

A communist, in other words. That's what democratic socialism, or socialist democracy is- communism. All the pretty definitions and semantics won't change the bottom line. Read Trotsky, Hegel et al. The various factions of socialism might slag each other off, but the end goal is the same. They merely disagree on what path is taken, how long it takes, and what's on the schedule.

Chairman S...........

Your title sounds too, you know, Stalin-esque...However, very true words sir.

I'm teasing of course, I know you from blogging here...Nicole is politically challenged. Your efforts are noble, but tragically moot.

Maybe you're being helpful, but were I you, I'd store up the energy and go after Kyle, Andy666, Toasted n' WellStoned, or Inanimus (unless you're a missionary).

Being a lowly cabinetmaker I view politics simply. I believe (as I posted earlier) that Socialism is the 'desire' of the government to take over free enterprise, whereas Marxism is the 'demand' of the government to take over free enterprise. I feel we are on the cusp.

Any corrections will be dutifully noted.

I am not a socialist. I believe individuals have the right to own their own property and business and that it is vital to the health of a strong nation.

I was under the government's medical care for the first 20 something years of my life and never had an issue. When I did have to look for private healthcare it was ridiculous. A fifth of my income went to health care for me and my daughter. The system is overpriced. Do I know the source? No. Do you? I had hundreds of dollars going into my healthcare whether I went to the doctor or not, whether I was sick or not - and yet when I would actually utilize my insurance
I would still end up shelling out a big chunk of cash just for visiting and then for whatever priscriptions were necessary. Where was all my money going? Everyone should pay the same amount for healthcare whether they are a janitor or an executive.
I have a friend who's mother went through serious treatment for breast cancer and she was waiting for a weeks a ticking time bomb, not getting chemo because her
insurance company had to make sure she would be covered? My uncle-in-law didn't have insurance and now he's discovered he has prostrate cancer. He can't get treatment unless he can come up with thousands and thousands of dollars. I'm sorry, but we live in a country where so many things are possible, why must people suffer because they didn't plan to get cancer? Or didn't plan to get into an accident? Our country is only as strong as our weakest link. And we have a huge section
of the population who can't even afford preventable care. I was part of it once. They're not lazy or stupid (well at least not anymore than the rest of the country), they're for the most part people just like you and me who can't wait for the weekend so they can spend it with their family. What treatments you or I recieve in a hospital should not be based in anyway on profit. I'm not saying that the entire industry needs to be socialized, but there needs to be a balance. It is in all of our best interests to have a healthy nation. Now I am back in the bosom of the government's healthcare system and I hope that by the time I have to return to a private one it has been reformed.

I will look into those that you mentioned because I do my best to read books that come from different perspectives with ideas that don't support my own. But
don't you find that there is a well written and researched book on many subjects to support many different views. The truth is not so simple. I think it's important for people to stand for what they feel is right - whether I agree or not. I just prefer they do it with the goal of educating the populous versus inciting the populous to anger. I find that those who toss insults at others who disagree are living and acting from fear. And I don't want to live in fear.

Posted by: Nicole at August 3, 2009 10:35 AM

Nicole what you fail to see is that most of us DON'T want the government running our lives. We want the frredom to choose our doctors and not be forced to take what the government sees fit to give us. Let me spell it out for you: F-R-E-E-D-O-M.

Posted by: Farmer Ted at August 3, 2009 10:51 AM

Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither, and receive neither.

I was under the government's medical care for the first 20 something years of my life and never had an issue.

What program were you involved in and where?

Everyone should pay the same amount for healthcare whether they are a janitor or an executive.

Wrong. Health care is, and should be, like every other service or commodity. There are higher and lesser quality services and products, higher and lesser quality practitioners. They should be allowed to charge accordingly.

I have a friend who's mother went through serious treatment for breast cancer and she was waiting for a weeks a ticking time bomb, not getting chemo because her
insurance company had to make sure she would be covered?

In nations who have government run health care, that waiting time amounts to months, not weeks. If they decide that you are able to benefit from the treatment at all.

What treatments you or I recieve in a hospital should not be based in anyway on profit.

Wrong. Profit is what motivates people to provide quality products and services, or risk going out of business entirely. Pursuit of profit is where medical break-throughs come from. Pursuit of profit is not only not b ad in any way, but a great motivator that has brought about many wonderful things. Think of the world before 1776. It was a shit hole.

Saying that everyone should receive free health care is the same as saying that everyone should be able to receive golden lollipops that fall from the sky.

Ask yourself, if government run health care is such a wonderful idea, then why aren't members of Congress, the Senate, or the President himself required to place themselves and their families in government's care in the Obamacare bill?

Furthermore, if government run health care is so wonderful abroad, why aren't million dollar Hollywood celebrities who can afford health care anywhere in the world, flying to Cuba, Canada, Britain, or Europe for their health care?

Additionally, why do many folks from those nations fly here for their own health care?

Posted by: J at August 3, 2009 1:00 PM

J thank you for pointing out that Nicole is a liar. Nicole my wife was diagnosed with breats cancer in April. She saw some very fine doctors and had a masectomy just to be safe because on of the tumors was bigger than 2cm. Chemo is the last resort,why didn't your friend's mother have a masectomy? By the way once cancer is detected,unless very advanced,the patient is NOT a ticking timebomb. If you're going to lie at least be good at it.

The freedom we have in our current healthcare system is based off how much money you have. That is not freedom in my eyes.


Posted by: J at August 3, 2009 1:00 PM

Which program you ask? I'm was a military brat and now a military wife. I have no complaints about my healthcare. Definitely prefer it over the private one I had for some years.

Wrong. Health care is, and should be, like every other service or commodity. There are higher and lesser quality services and products, higher and lesser quality practitioners. They should be allowed to charge accordingly.

I believe there should be private practicioners. They can charge what they like. If you can afford the doctor who offers bottled water and a spa like ambiance while you wait go for it. The most important thing is that no matter your socio-economic status you actually receive care. Quality care. In the military no matter what rank you are you receive the same attentive care.

In nations who have government run health care, that waiting time amounts to months, not weeks. If they decide that you are able to benefit from the treatment at all.

That's not right either. I'm certainly not suggesting we have a faulty system. Are you saying Americans can't do it better? Come on.... Anyways, at least they're making decisions based on whether or not you can benefit from the treatment, vs. insurance companies who could care less as to whether or not you benefit from it but rather if you are 'covered'.

Pursuit of profit is not only not b ad in any way, but a great motivator that has brought about many wonderful things.

I don't believe the pursuit of profit is bad. I don't think money is bad. I don't think having a lot of money is bad. But a cost versus risk assesment shouldn't be done in determining which treatment I will get. What would be acceptable risk? What is acceptable risk for you? Or for your children?

Ok - the lolipop got a smile out of me. Free people from the chains of health concerns and you can free them to be more productive members of society. Preventative care alone could do wonders.

Ask yourself, if government run health care is such a wonderful idea, then why aren't members of Congress, the Senate, or the President himself required to place themselves and their families in government's care in the Obamacare bill?

Why would they be? Then you would just have more to complain about right? Anyways, when my husband gets out of the military I should look into what plan they have.

Furthermore, if government run health care is so wonderful abroad, why aren't million dollar Hollywood celebrities who can afford health care anywhere in the world, flying to Cuba, Canada, Britain, or Europe for their health care?

Additionally, why do many folks from those nations fly here for their own health care?

I'm guessing it's because it'd be really a pain in the butt to have take a 10 hour flight to get a checkup? I'm never said our care is bad - just overpriced... and well if you're a celebrity price isn't an issue.

And people don't come here for our insurance plans - they come here for our doctors. Just like sometimes someone from America (who can afford it) may go abroad for a specialist.

Posted by: Farmer Ted at August 3, 2009 1:35 PM

I'm not a liar, harsh words. You may want to think about how quickly you judge others.
You're right chemo is the last resort and she did receive a double masectomy. She had a particularly aggressive form. If they missed ANY of it her chances of recovering even WITH chemo was slim, and the longer she waited the slimmer they got. I'm very happy your wife is a survivor! It is already hard enough going through the process of being diagnosed and receiving treatment for cancer, the red tape shouldn't be the hard part.


To ALL:

I really just meant to pass by this site originally - If you can believe it I came across it by googling "Cuban insects" ... ha! Anyways ...
Good luck on your pursuit to happiness, just don't forget to find happiness IN the pursuit as well. I just saw the documentary 'Boy Interrupted' and it reminded me to use my time more wisely. So this is my farewell and my respect to those who managed to express their opinions without insult, my pity to those who didn't.

Posted by: Nicole at August 3, 2009 8:18 PM

Nicole please look up the definition of assuming: The mother of all fuck ups. I am not rich nor have I ever been rich. I've worked alot of different jobs to keep climbing the ladder so one day I would have health coverage. That's what America is all about, the freedom to keep achieving higher pay and/or benefits. There were many years that I didn't have health coverage but I didn't think it was a right that had been denied. I looked at as more of a challeneg to keep working toward a goal. Now if you just want to sit on your ass and think the government owes you something that's fine you have your right to your own opinion. What you don't have a right to is MY money to support your lazy ass.
