The Revolution? That Will Cost You $5!

Brand New Law passed by the Republicans in South Carolina, the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES REGISTRATION ACT, requires that if you intend to overthrow the government…

You have to register first an pay a $5 fee to the the government you’re going to overthrow!

There is even a Registration Form.

Every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States, of this State or of any political subdivision thereof by force or violence or other unlawful means, who resides, transacts any business or attempts to influence political action in this State, shall register with the Secretary of State on the forms and at the times prescribed by him.

Think they were 150 Years late on this one.

Hey Abdullah! Somebody has to go back…

Of ourse the SCUMUS 5 of the SCOTUS shouldn’t have any problem with the law in light of previous rulings in Albertson v. Subversive Activities Control Board even if Abdullah did register to blow up a tall building.

What Happens When You Ask A Conservative About Accomplishments

Owwwww – This is an ass whuppin’!

GOP Strategist Todd Harris Walks into Chris Matthews Buzzsaw on Hardball. The issue comes when Matthews starts asking for a list of Republican Accomplishments which an American citizen could look at and contrast with the Democrats as a basis for voting Republican or Democrat. Now, Todd Harris is one of the top 2 or 3 Republican Strategist people in the country, and the question would appear to be a slam dunk…

What Harris is saying is it isn’t about what “we” did, it’s about what we can make you think is important…

Betsy McCaughey, Anthony Weiner, and Dylan Ratigan – health care

This is an absolute ass whuppin’!

Betsy McCaughey was the lead conservative who helped destroy Hillary Clinton’s Health Reform effort in 1994. She did that with an article in the New Republic which turned out to be false, and full of deliberately misleading information.

This time around, killing Health Care Reform isn’t so easy –

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The New Republic, in an article entitled No Exit – The never-ending lunacy of Betsy McCaughey, apparently doesn’t like being made fools of the first time around. This time they are doing the background and fact checking – and a really ugly picture has emerged –

Pick an inflammatory, misleading rumor that has sprung up in this debate, and chances are McCaughey had a hand in springing it. She has, for instance, warned that a provision buried in the stimulus bill will soon have computers dictating doctors’ treatment of patients based on government protocols. More notably, she sounded the (false) alarm that the White House aims to ration care based on patients’ value to society–an idea that swiftly morphed into the “death panel” hysteria and then quickly became entangled in McCaughey’s equally outrageous claim that the proposed reforms would force seniors into regular chats with their doctors about how to end their lives. That such claims are untrue in no way dims McCaughey’s zeal. Confronted with conflicting information, she plows ahead with her unique interpretation of reality, leaving critics on both the left and the right nonplussed. One’s only options, they say, are to ignore her and hope that she fades away– or to go negative in the hope of discrediting her.

So it is that Aaron finds himself standing in the Crystal Ballroom of the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington, Virginia, running through PowerPoint slides that detail–quote by excruciating quote–McCaughey’s reputation as among the most irresponsible, dishonest, and destructive players on the public stage. He starts with Politifact.com’s categorization of her commentary as “Pants on Fire,” followed by New York Times articles debunking her assertions, followed by complaints from economist Gail Wilensky (adviser to John McCain’s presidential campaign and head of Medicare financing under the first President Bush) that “these charges of death panels, euthanasia and withholding care from the disabled give rational, knowledgeable, thoughtful conservatives a bad name.” Next comes a denunciation of McCaughey’s “fraudulent scare tactics” by John Paris, professor of bioethics at Boston College; AARP executive vice president John Rother’s protest that her statements are “rife with gross–even cruel–distortions”; a scolding editorial by The Washington Post about McCaughey’s characterization of White House health policy adviser Ezekiel “Zeke” Emanuel as “Dr. Death”; and, to wrap it all up, Stuart Butler, vice president of domestic policy at the conservative Heritage Foundation, expressing dismay that the “personal attacks on good people like Zeke are outrageous. There are real policy issues that should be debated vigorously, but slandering a good person’s name is beyond the pale.” At one point, the debate moderator felt moved to reach over and give McCaughey’s hand a comforting pat. She dipped her chin and stuck out her bottom lip in good-humored appreciation.

Betsy, not surprisingly is the source who was quoted by the Sno’ Ho’, when she cited “Death Panels” in her post goodbye broadside after resigning as Governor of Alaska. Betsy is a favorite of the Tea Bagger groups.

So like the foul-mouthed androgynous “Awful Annie” Coulter, McCaughey’s stock in trade is lies and distortion albeit with a mouth that doesn’t need washing out with lye soap. And it is real hard to generate any sympathy whatsoever for yet another “blond conserva-bimbo” whose stock in trade is lies and fake outrage.

The Cos Weighs In

Bill Cosby, the darling of conservatives when he gives that tough-love to the segment of the black community that is falling down – is likely to draw conservative ire with his post on his Facebook –

bill-cosby

I agree with President Carter that racism is playing a role in recent outbursts against President Obama. During President Obama’s speech on the status of health care reform, some members of congress engaged in a public display of disrespect. While one Representative hurled the now infamous “you lie” insult at the President, others made their lack of interest known by exhibiting rude behavior such as deliberately yawning and sending text messages.

Health care reform is the most important domestic issue facing America today. Disease does not discriminate. African American, White, Asian, Latino, Republican, Democrat, no one in America is immune. So it seems obvious that a debate on health care reform should not include views born solely of partisanship or bigotry.

Various polls prior to the election indicated that between five and ten percent of Americans would never vote for an African American president. That number, of course, only includes those who actually admitted to their prejudice. How many others harbored such feelings but did not respond honestly when asked the question? And how many people oppose Obama’s plan because the President is African American?

In “Birth of a Nation,” D.W. Griffith used white actors in black face to portray black legislators as having low intelligence and acting like fools. Today, we have a band of real life congressional fools seemingly bent on blocking any meaningful reform of the health care system. But if we allow even one American to die simply because he or she cannot afford treatment, we are creating a shameful scenario that could aptly be called “Death of a Nation.”

Roy Blunt (R) – “In Washington, you have to play the ball where the Monkey throws it.”

This is Congressman Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri, speaking at the Value Voters Summit yesterday –

Hard to believe this guy is so stupid he didn’t know this one – especially after President Jimmy Carter’s comments…

Is going to cause a ishtstorm.

Value Voters is a social conservative group. Obviously, their view of christian values doesn’t preclude racism.

No Cajones Obama

Well, the Rethugs successfully lynched Van Jones…

And it was a lynching in every sense of the word.

Supposedly for his comments about Republicans.

Once again the Dems run like a scalded mutt with its tail between it’s legs.

Be nice if the Dems could grow a freaking pair for a change.
