For those of you that need the reminder:

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

The late Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 to 2005

And then there’s this little nugget:

Awakening the Welfare Recipient Within

by Austin Hill

For millions of my fellow Americans, President Barack Obama is awakening the welfare recipient within.

Perhaps it’s his dulcet-toned voice. Maybe it’s his charming personality. Whatever the reason, it appears that in the era of Obama, millions of Americans have discovered that there is a welfare recipient deep within them.

For some Americans, an inner welfare recipient is not news. Yet for others, this seems to be a new discovery, and Washington’s invitation (which in some cases is a demand) to feast at the public trough is not only irresistible, it is as welcomed as a cup of cool, refreshing water.

She’s a lying bitch too. I think she’s a disgusting douche-nozzle, but that’s just me. I am sure there is evidence that actually proves it. Oh, wait! Here’s some:

Michelle Obama’s Patient-Dumping Scheme

By David Catron

The First Lady helped create a notorious program that dumped poor patients on community hospitals, yet the national media ignore the story. Imagine if her husband were a Republican.

The University of Chicago Medical Center has received a good deal of justly opprobrious press over its policy of “redirecting” low-income patients to community hospitals while reserving  its own beds for well-heeled patients requiring highly profitable procedures. Substantial coverage was given to a recent indictment of the program by the American College of Emergency Physicians. ACEP’s president, Dr. Nick Jouriles, released a statement suggesting that the initiative comes “dangerously close to ‘patient dumping,’ a practice made illegal by the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act, and reflected an effort to ‘cherry pick’ wealthy patients over poor.”

I am the opposition. There I will  remain. There I will make my voice heard. There I will fight stupidity of the highest order.
While I am at it, let’s see what some of the others in the opposition have to say:

Loyal Opposition

by Bruce Bialosky

A constant theme among the Obama Gang suggests that questioning their path is reckless. Their followers say that my observations are questionable solely for existing and not for their substance. One person demanded I withhold commentary for a year. “Give him a chance” is the constant theme. “No” is the answer to that. Every American has an obligation to question where Obama’s proposals are heading.

You have probably noticed Obama’s use of the current economic situation radically changes the structure of our society. His bodacious proposals are staggering in their scope. Only an audacious individual would propose budget expenditures for ten years when he has only been elected for four.

Obama as Hitler

by Kevin McCullough

This week in a bold move the President broke a barrier that his supporters should be quite concerned about. For in doing so he has broken a barrier that should always be seen as sacred. However, this will likely be marginalized by the leftist media that offers it’s blind support regardless of any mastery of facts.

Case and point… Rachel Maddow.

She is MSNBC’s less funny and perhaps more butch version of Keith Olbermann. And on this past Friday night she did an entire “bit” on anyone who would compare Obama’s policies to socialism as “not very serious people.” Of course people seeing the “bit” were a good deal uncertain of Maddow as she herself kept interchanging the terms socialist and communist. But liberals often are confused by facts and frequently either do not understand what they are discussing, or discuss it purposefully with deception. Whatever the case Maddow thought herself witty.

Time to get plum mad-dog mean. I think I am there. I am so sick and tired of the left and the Democrats. They are a bunch of morons that are out to destroy my country. I’m not the only one thinking this way either.

The more socialism that is shoved down my throat, the more pissed off I get. This could end badly.

And on a side note:

I am sick of this shit.

I can’t stand the state of California any more. I am looking to get the hell out of here ASAP. The taxes I have to pay are too high for what I get out of it. In fact, I don’t get shit. It all goes to some sorry ass leftist scheme, or other in this state. Welfare, illegal aliens, education that sucks, the government morass that is Sacramento, and the list is huge and seemingly endless.

What sucks is the Teh One has made it even harder to find a job elsewhere. Thanks for nothing douche-nozzle.


Time to Get Mean?

By C. Edmund Wright

“Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.” – The Outlaw Josey Wales

These words of the Outlaw Josey Wales, given life by Clint Eastwood, should be engraved on a huge sign in the offices of the Republican Party. Or somewhere. Anywhere that there might be a gathering of folks ready to fight for our country.

Frankly, if someone in the loyal opposition does not get mean, speedy Barack Obama and the Pelosi-Reid leftist juggernaut will have turned our nation into a textbook socialist republic faster than you can name the 57 states. There is nothing short of an all out legislative assault on our entire way of life and on the very spirit of what made our nation exceptional. Our Congress, riding Obama’s coattails, has destroyed more freedom at home in a month than our military gained abroad since 2001.

God, Guns & Gumption

by Doug Giles

As our nation settles solidly into the vise of a rank recession with a tax and spend president and cabinet that are morally vacuous and weak on national defense, more and more non-Kool Aid drinking folks are starting to shvitz like a hooker in church.

When I get antsy I look to my sustaining roots and three things that have never let me down, namely God, guns and gumption.

God.

I like God. For clarification purposes, when I say God, I mean the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Yeah . . . them. Of the Holy Trinity, Jesus, in today’s environment of Puss-in-Boots political correctness, is the Simon Cowell of this trio (i.e. He gets booed more than the other two). Our sassy, secularized society hates just the mention of His name. Ah, poor bebe poquito.

Every now and again, I have to take a break from the politics. I’d go crazy if I didn’t. Generally, if I have a Friday off, I’ll probably skip posting, or reading anything from Friday through Sunday. I think it keeps me sane.
And with that, I’m back…

And in the global whining arena:
