Obama Calls Healthcare Reform A Triumph For ‘decency’

January 21, 2010 by  

Obama calls healthcare reform a triumph for 'decency'On Sunday, President Obama spoke about healthcare reform from the church pulpit of the Vermont Avenue Baptist Church in Washington D.C., calling the impending bill a victory for "decency."

"This will be a victory not for Democrats," Obama said. "It will be a victory for dignity and decency, and for our common humanity. It will be a victory for the United States of America."

The president also acknowledged his sense of frustration with the slow pace of change seen in his first year in office.

Looking back, Obama recalled his hope that "life would be better from the moment I swore that oath," he said, quoted by CNN.com. "We know the promise of that moment has not been fully filled."

Meanwhile, Democrats working with the president have agreed to exempt union workers from the 40 percent "Cadillac" tax on expensive insurance plans that will help pay for healthcare reform, Fox News reports.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said the "special deal" exemption will encourage people to join unions and is unfair to 92 percent of the private sector workforce.

    Speaking as a republican and a conservative I thought at first that the health care legislation and reform effort was being forced down our throats and a debt to our children. But then I saw this article and it explained how we conservatives have framed the debate has crippled our ability to see it for what republicans in the past would have seen it. Now I have changed my mind I hope you will take a look and think about it too

      Do not click on this link. Republicanblack is a hack, and places this same post every time there is a post on Health Care. Again, DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK! This is probably the same Kerion “the shill” Jackman who this link is by, and he probably has an ulterior motive for posting the same word for word post every time. By clicking on this link you are probably helping him in some way.

      • John

        It’s obvious by his poorly written, non-persuavie string of words that he is not a Republican nor a Conservative. Do they think that we are honestly as ignorant as they are???

    • Michael J.

      Republicanblack, I already know you are a phony implant but decided to search the name Keiron Jackman just to save others the trouble. As I suspected, just another thinly veiled attempt to spin the truth about health care reform. Some worthless analogy which tries to link road building with health care? Everyone expects the states and federal government to build and maintain roadways but health care is much more personal. We don’t need or want government to be involved in or privy to every aspect of our health and lives. The other statements Mr. Jackman makes are just plain lies. He claims that this bill will create more doctor’s, when in fact 45% of doctor’s polled said they would quit or retire if this bill were to be inacted. Plenty more examples, to little time.

      • republicanblack

        What can you expect from someone on personal liberty, how can a person who advocates for personal liberty tell someone not to click on a link? LIke thinwarble? It’s amazing to me that you believe in a country where enterprise is key, that a system that includes more people into health in a manner that is affordable, that doctors will quit. And even if they do quit, that does not preclude other doctors from filling the gap or more schools (or government) providing incentives for ppl to pursue medical school. Maybe loan forgiveness. As much as you say it’s a personal matter, what someone else does affects me in the medical system. If someone does not pay it affects me, that makes it personal. You are too deep into your own understanding you cannot even see that. And yes I help spread the word because Americans need to get their information from other places other than from foreign owned companies like FOX News. Who want to capitalize on the monopolistic structure of the medical care industry. So if you reduce your argument to a poll of doctors, not the AMA, I am skeptical about your foundation and youhave not ever been polled before. Because if someone ask me I am happy about reform me answering yes or no does not dictate a reason or my feeling concerning whether reform is better than the status quo. But real patriots don’t censor speech and ideas. Good day!

    • Time

      This bill is not about Health Care. It is about CONTROLL, nothing more and nothing less.

      Read the bill’s that are out there, its very clear that the American public as in the {WORKING TAX PAYING} Americans will have ZERO benefit from this bill.

      It will however provide the government with the POWER to controll your life, if you don’t comply you face jail and fines.
      Said fines will be taken from the sale of your home, or what ever you own.

  • Robert

    I believe that most Americans, including myself, believe that there is a need for health care reform. Costs are out of control and many of us find it difficult to pay for our insurance. We Americans, Mr. Obama, are looking for REAL reform. NOT business as usual with graft, payoffs, special interest deals. And we Americans don’t expect reform to be done in one gigantic reform bill. Why not address the real issues that wont cost us Americans and arm and a leg. Like Tort reform, inter-state competition, ability to buy prescriptions outside the US. Now that would be a good start and we Americans would welcome and support that initiative. It takes real leadership and courage to represent every American and ignore the special interest groups, lobbyists, and the rest of the lowlifes this current bill aims to please. So Mr. President, do you have the courage to do this for all Americans? Do you really care about us or are you just like the rest of all the phonies in Washingto? Show us who you really are and why we should support you.

    • DaveH

      Robert,
      I’m sure you already know this, but for others – Real Reform would be to get Government out of our Healthcare Decisions. Government meddling in the marketplace is responsible for our high costs. More Government is certainly not the solution. It is the problem. When I was young (40 years ago), my wife had a Caesarian for $400 cash. Try to do that now. Sure there’s been inflation since then, but not nearly enough to account for the high costs now. What made the difference between then and now? Increasing Government meddling is what.
      For a Real Solution:

      • http://Don'thaveone Sally

        DavidH you are correct. When I had my second child over 40 years ago, my husband had just gotten out of the service and his new job did not provide hospitalization, the hospital and Dr. bill was $192.00. I agree with the govenment intervention plus the biggest thing putting costs on are the lawyers. All of the cases of women having babies with something wrong they blamed the drs. not themselves. Remember it got so bad, that many of the drs. changed their specialty because they couldn’t afford the malpractice insurance anymore. Lawyers and politicans are the only profession that takes from society and never gives anything back.

        • Robert

          Of course lawyers and politicinas give something back. I just can’t say it because it will be deleted for obsenity reasons.

          • http://myronjpoltroonian.blogspot.com Myron J. Poltroonian

            My Dear Robert. As the Brits say: “Here, here”.

        • Curtis S

          Don’t leave us hangin’ Sally! How did you pay that $192.00 medical bill? Forty years ago $192.00 was probably more money than a service man made in two weeks. So what happened, Sally? Universal healthcare would have meant you wouldn’t need to worry about paying a bill! A you for or against healthcare reform?

          • Jana

            Curtis, You worked it out with the Dr. and the hospital and made payments. The same as you can do now.

          • Curtis S

            Thanks Jana, that certainly seems reasonable, but kind of expensive.

          • DaveH

            We paid for ours cash. We both worked at a time when the 2 worker family was still pretty rare.
            The point is, Curtis, that the more regulators there are, the fewer producers there are. Thus the overall costs go up. And these costs are difficult to analyze because they get lost in the complex bureaucracy.
            And when Government attempts to control costs the supply typically dwindles and then there are shortages which eventually are addressed by rationing. Wouldn’t you prefer to pay more, rather then not being able to access the goods or services at all due to shortages? I would.

    • Harold Olsen

      I do not have a health care plan because I can not afford one. I do not want a government health care plan. If Obamacare gets passed it will NOT be a vote for decency but will be a vote for the parasites and leeches who want to live off the rest of us because they are too lazy to earn their own way. The Democrats encourage this because it gives them power over these people, giving them the illusion that they are getting something for nothing. These parasites and leeches have their self-respect taken away and I don’t think they even care.

      • usmadgirl

        Harold,

        I totally agree & I’m in the same boat. When I left the last real estate title insurance company I worked for to do the same work ‘independently’, my ‘group insurance’ was $37.50 per pay period (2ce per mo.) To continue it ‘personally’ was going to be $600.00 per month & that was almost 16 years ago. I don’t make enough to have insurance either, but I STILL don’t want government health care ever! Luckily, (and I’m probably going to jinx it), I’m never sick! Well I had cancer over 30 years ago, but had insurance then.

        I wrote my representatives when this health care hoax started & told them if they wanted to ‘reform’ HC, having group insurance for ‘self-employed’ people would be a good start! But since we all know that this has nothing to do with Health Care, only government POWER & CONTROL for O-bum-a’s agenda, I guess it doesn’t matter!

    • Meteorlady

      You could also add -
      Drug companies have to quit advertising (cost savings of 57 million per year conservatively)
      Drug companies cannot include the cost of law suits in the price of their drugs
      Hospital emergency rooms only treat REAL EMERGENCIES
      Illegals DO NOT GET FREE HEALTH CARE IN THIS COUNTRY!
      States should encourage medical co-ops that are not state or government run.

      • Jana

        Meterolady, I am with you. You said it well.

      • Fed Up Gal in NM

        MeteorLady / Jana,

        Excellent points.

        Fed Up Gal

      • eyeswideopen

        Meteorlady, do you understand that the insurance companies are a monopoly? They dictate the premiums, by sitting down together and mapping out the whole country, state by state. The drug companies are also a monopoly, look at the prices the Canadians pay vs the US. There is no free market functioning for this industry. Corporations are dictating what and how much care will be delivered. The insurance premiums went up 131 % in ten years, while the average salary had an increase of 38 % during the same period. Since you want everything to remain the same, how will you afford insurance of $24,000 per year in 8 years? Reform should mean, killing Anti-trust laws,( which didn’t work), stop price fixing, stop denying coverage for pre-existing conditions, stop paying subsidies to corporations, stop the canceling of polices when someone becomes sick. Common sense things need to be done to fix the broken system. The influx of monies given to our Congressmen by the corporations means the interests of the citizens have been subjugated, allowing for the best Congress money can buy.

    • Fed Up Gal in NM

      Well done, Robert!

      Fed Up Gal

    • Valverde

      The best strategy of all would be to eliminate the need for insurance companies to stay within state boundaries. This law was a cockamamie idea that made its way through the House and Senate about 30 or 40 years ago so that insurance companies could control costs and drive up prices through lack of real competition. Repeal that law and, all of a sudden, we have real competition between insurance companies again. Down come prices, especially to companies who provide health insurance to their employees. This price competition would apply across the board so that those who have a hard time purchasing insurance now, would be able to afford it. If one follows the money trail it always comes back to government and, ultimately, politicians.

      • Fed Up Gal in NM

        Valverde,

        Sounds reasonable to me!

        Additionally, even though I don’t care much for the government meddling in the market….however, I do wish there was something in place that would not allow insurance companies to raise rates after 1 claim. Some of us have paid for homeowner’s and/or auto insurance forever (it seems), and when you call about filing a claim…i.e, roof leak, etc….they give you that line about “make sure you really want to file a claim…..because it might increase your policy rates”. I mean come on…that’s just stupid….why the heck do you pay for insurance anyway, if you have to worry they’ll raise your rates (or worse drop you) if you file a claim? I can understand if it’s an auto accident claim and you were at fault the 2nd or 3rd time…but not on a first claim on any type of insurance. That’s not right in my mind.

        Fed Up Gal

        • Michael J.

          Fed up Gal, I share your pain. In addition to what you stated, is there anyone out there who hasn’t realized that copay’s is all the doctor’s and pharmacies receive for prescriptions and services rendered?
          That allows all of your monthly premium to go into the pockets of the greedy insurance companies.
          And in the event that you do have a catastrophic illness, there’s a good chance they may cancel your policy.
          Real, legitimate healthcare reform is something we need desperately, but it’s not going to come from Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Michael J,

            Thank you….You said it! I am (currently) a federal employee, so I’m lucky that I do have health insurance at a reasonable cost, and even more importantly…they cannot drop me if I become terribly ill…even if considered a terminal illness and I don’t die as they expect or would like…they can never drop me (as long as I pay my premiums, meet my co-pays, deductibles when applicable, etc. Personally, I believe this is the kind of health care reform all tax paying U.S. citizens and their children should be able to benefit from. I know that I am luckier than some….I don’t make a lot of money…but I’m comfortable, and I am aware of how lucky I am to have a health plan I feel I can pretty much count on when I really need too. Having said this, my health plan is not the very cadillac plans like Congress has…but it’s still quite a good plan.

            You’re right about the co-pays, although I thought they were getting a little more than the co-pay…but I literally mean a little more…like $5 over the co-pay. I agree with MeteroLady about advertising, no health care for illegals, and a push for tort reform…otherwise the cost for many will just be too much. I a;sp think they could find a better way to get the word out about their services than sticking it to their customers/patients. Same could be said about auto insurance companies / other insurance types, telephone and other utility service providers. Every month they send all this extra garbage in with your statement. Makes me wonder how much less premiums might be w/o the costs of television ads. Just leave out the trash stuff and reduce my bill…what’s so hard about that?

            Fed Up Gal

          • Michael J.

            Fed up Gal,
            I appreciate your understanding of the issues. I would however keep that part about being a fed employee under wraps, they might get the idea that you are a right wing mole. Heh… Heh… Heh…
            Stay Healthy, Michael J.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Michael J,

            Yes…I know…you’re probably right. I’ve mentioned that I’m a federal employee in several previous posts on various articles…so anyone that’s concerned about that need only to reference back to see if I’m more likely truthful than not…you do make an excellent point however.

            I appreciate your “mole” humor (seriously…not kidding here), because I know there will likely be some that will make an issue of that. That’s okay, since I feel blessed to be part of a team that is helping our military men and women.

            While I make significantly less than the six-figure income highlighted on recent TV and Radio news and talk shows; obviously the paycheck is important…still, there are those of us who aren’t just their for the paycheck.

            I guess as long as we have a military…there will be a need for others who can help take care of the military families with medical and other types of assistance, while their loved ones are deployed and in many cases risking their lives for relatively low salaries and little gratitude from some. Since I’m retired military…guess I could be a little biased. Everyone’s biased about something…so I’m okay with mine. Hope you are too. Thanks for your comments; I always enjoy reading them.

            Fed Up Gal

          • Jana

            Thank you for helping our military Fed Up Gal. It is deeply appreciated.

        • DaveH

          There is Fed Up. Shop around. With our AAA insurance it takes 3 claims to trigger an increase in rates.
          The Free Market takes care of issues like that, because competitive companies will want to provide the conditions to keep their customers happy. When Government gets involved and protects them with regulations or subsidies, they get lazy and non-competitive.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            DaveH,

            Thanks for the AAA info. I have USAA for my auto and have had no problems (yet…LoL). However, I paid for many years to State Farm for Home Owner’s Insurance…and they said they might raise my rates when I called to have them come out and look at a roof leak. I was furious…since they basically pocketed years of policy premiums…then when I had a potential claim….they were threatening to raise my premiums. Seems like that negates the rationale for purchasing insurance to some degree.

            Fed Up Gal

          • DaveH

            I agree FedUp. Private companies are by no means perfect. But that is why I prefer Free Markets over Government. When private companies jerk me around I look for another place to put my money. I can’t do that when Government jerks me around.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

  • Darlene

    You know what. Gov. has no place in the debate about health care at all. There is way to much gov. control on our lives now and with less gov. and more money in our pockets it would not be so hard to buy our own ins. and to donate to causes we want to support, and to open businesses to employ more people. Less Gov. is the only way to make the U.S.A. strong. More Gov. will only make us the U.S.S.A. Get out of our pockets. Less Gov. all the way.

        This was my very first thought when reading about Barry ‘preaching’ in church. He doesn’t attend church unless it’s a church that spews hatred and lies and when he chooses one in the Washington DC area, he uses it for the same thing, only different lies! What’s up with that? Why does the ACLU give him a free pass? We all know why…. he’s a Democrat.

        • Harold Olsen

          The ACLU gives him a free pass because they hate this country as much as he does. I believe that the ACLU should be declared a terrorist organization because it is clear they are out to destroy this country, just like the Democrats are. These two organizations are two of the worst hate groups in the country.

          • SkipperP

            I agree the ACLU is a group of anti-American desrtuctionists who want to destroy everything America stands for. They should be tried for treason along with our president.

      This administration and the liberals have been trampling on the Constitution since day one of Obama’s inauguation. According to the party in power now, the constitution does not apply to them. And David is 100% right. It only applies to anyone who is not a liberal or democrat. Your point is well taken. I think we now have a legitimate reason to sue for the right to put prayer back in the classroom, display the Ten Commandments in all public places and a plethora of other religious symbols that the politicians and Supreme Court have stolen from us over the years. The ACLU? Why would the Arab Civil Liberties Union have anything to say? It’s an infidel issue.

      • Dave

        David & Robert, you are both 100% correct. What happened to separation of state and religion? They push it when they seek control but cross the line when they can use it for their benefit. Makes me sick they go into a church and preach like they have religious faith. They are destroying this FREE country. This country need to grab hold of our Christian views and shove it down the throats of the ACLU, ACORN, DEMOCRATS and the ATHEISTS!!

        Welcome to the age of paranoia. You Conservatives are like Chicken Little runing around shouting “The Sky is Falling” but your words are “Socialism is Coming”. Too sad to be funny. I have to admit I do LOVE the Teabaggers though… hehehehe

        This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by socialist electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy. I then took a shower in the socialist clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the socialist radio to one of the FCC regulated channels to hear what the socialist National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using socialist satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of socialist US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the socialist drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

        At the appropriate time as kept accurate by the socialist National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my socialist National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the socialist roads build by the socialist local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the socialist Environmental Protection Agency, using socialist legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the socialist US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the socialist public school. If I get lost, I can use my socialist GPS navigation technology developed by the United States Department of Defense and made available to the public in 1996 by President Bill Clinton who issued a policy directive declaring socialist GPS to be a dual-use military/civilian system to be managed as a national socialist asset. After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the socialist workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the socialist USDA, I drive my socialist NHTSA car back home on the socialist DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the socialist state and local building codes and socialist fire marshal’s inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it’s valuables thanks to the socialist local police department.

        I then get on my computer and use the socialist internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and browse the socialist World Wide Web using my graphical web browser, both made possible by Al Gore’s socialist High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991. I then post on freerepublic.com and fox news forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can’t do anything right…

    Decency? I’m sorry but this individual knows nothing of decency…he’s a communist.
    Yes health care needs reform by way of getting the government completely, 100% OUT of the health care business. Any insurance company out there should be put on a level free market playing field and any closed door monopolization of pricing should be severely prosecuted. Maybe if Doctors thought they could make a decent living again, we’d see more of them. Maybe if there were more of them…you could actually “shop” for one.
    But having Government take control of health care is the road to corruption, graft and bureaucratic inefficiency.
    Decency….the man doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

      D means DONATIONS
      E means ENTITLEMENTS
      C means CORRUPTION
      E means ENSLAVEMENT
      N means NEPOTISM
      C means CRONYISM
      Y means YOU ARE ALL ABOUT TO GET SCREWED

      See, he knows the meaning of decency.

        Nice Robert, Nice!

        He is anything but decent. Decent people are not perpetual liars.
        It’s too bad that it’s come to this, I didn’t vote for him, but the change that he’s proposing is beyond my wildest dreams.
        He has sure shaken America. Perhaps we needed that shaking, many of us have become too complacent, including myself.
        Except for foreign affairs and history, I have never been too deeply into Politics as I am now.
        Thanks Mr. o, I see things a lot more clearly than I ever did when it comes to Politics.

          Do you know what a teleprompter is? 99.9% of the people you see on TV use a teleprompter (or cue cards). You don’t “look things-up” on a teleprompter.

            I guess I need to work on my “sarcasm” delivery. Please try and read between the lines; if you’ve followed any of my posts…you might realize I was being sarcastic. I’ll definitely work on that now.

            Curtis S,

            And if I still did not clarify my comment enough in my last reply….

            Yes, I know what a teleprompter is…and I actually do know that one does not “look up things on a teleprompter”. I just figured he doesn’t do much research (on his own)…and likely depends on Gibbs, Emanuel and the rest of his gang of thieves to come up with some politically correct lingo to ingratiate upon us illiterate pheasants.

            Hey FedUpGal… for a guy that specializes in sarcasm, I’s sorry I missed that. That’s the problem with posting, you don’t get the right tone and inflection in the delivery. If you were being sarcastic, then that was pretty good.

            Oh and that last one… “illiterate pheasants” hahaha! Good one. Maybe one day you and I can “go hunt peasants”.

          • JeffH

            Curtis S be careful with the “hunt peasants” line as you would be linked to the “right wingnuts” that spew only hatred, threats of violence and bigotry by the leftist hacks that haunt this site. (tongue in cheek)

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Curtis S,

            First………I forgive you……. this time.

            Secondly……Sorry…I type rather fast and sometimes my fingers get ahead of my spell checker and spell checker wouldn’t necessarily pick up the typo I made, since both pheasants and peasants are correct. If I would have known my posts would be critiqued by someone with such an exemplary command of the English language (as yourself)…I would have certainly proofed it, in more thorough detail so the meaning of my comment would have been clear. Hope you don’t hold your breath for that…or maybe I do.

            Seriously…that was a great pick-up on your part. May I simply suggest you proof your own posts prior to submitting things such as “I’s sorry I missed that”….lest someone mistake you for a real “peasant” and accidentally blow those brightly colored “pheasant” feathers off your apparently very large tail (keeping it a bit light here).

            In summary…if you have an actual point to make…please make it. If your intent however…is to simply bloviate…please practice in front of the bathroom mirror… in the privacy of your own home.

        • eyeswideopen

          Fed UP, how can you critize someone for using a telepromter, when you admit to using spell check so that you don’t look stupid? Little unfair don’t you think? It is sad that people are so desperate to find something to critize the President about that they get so involved in the small insignificant things. Bush also used a telepromter, did you critize him?

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Well….hello there “Eyes”. Touché! I’ve been wondering when you were going to get around to little ole’ me. I noticed you were conversing with others and I started to feel left out. Now I’m feeling much better.

            You’re right about many Presidents (including GW Bush) using a teleprompter. While this true…I’m not sure any of them have perfected the teleprompter skill quite to the level of Barack Obama.

            I’m sorry that you interpreted my comments as criticism. Gee….I thought the President was all about transparency….so just thought I’d point out a fact…that’s all, meaning he really is quite an orator when Gibbs, Emanuel and others tell him word for word what to say….and which “cause” he should support, etc. At least GW Bush and others could actually respond to questions or concerns without having to check their teleprompter. Teleprompters, cue cards, etc…sure they have a place…but you shouldn’t have to rely on one to “respond” to a question.

            Howdy Gal,
            You mentioned teleprompter and transparent in your post which brought to mind the idea that a teleprompter is probably the only transparent
            item in the Obama administration.

            It’s true, most all politicians use teleprompters these days but Obama just looks so unatural. In his last speech he looked real nervous looking back and forth from the left one to the right one like a chicken in a gully full of rattlesnakes looking for a way out.

            Well that’s enough outa me, so i’ll just get outa the way of you two lady’s. I love a good cat fight and my money is on you.

            P.S. Don’t be to hard on EWO, she’s really just an ole softy at heart.

  • Tim

    The campaigning never stops for BO, even in the pulpit. His oath was to protect the citizens of the country from all enemies, NOT to guarantee a “chicken in every pot”. To make backroom deals with certain groups/states to exempt them from a bad deal, and stick everyone else with it is deplorable. He is in denial for the reason of election outcome in MA, and will continue on with his “hope & change”. We can only hope for a complete overhaul of Congress in Nov.
    Glen Beck continues to expose the shady characters this pres. has surrounded himself with.

    • Harold Olsen

      Actually, he is protecting this country from it’s enemies. He is protecting it from people like us who believe in the Constitution, the freedoms guaranteed by that and other documents written by our founding fathers and who oppose his Nazi agenda. He puts people like us on enemies lists and has us watched. I’ve read posts on various web sites from people who have notified their so-called representatives to oppose some part of the left’s agenda and their so-called representatives informs them that they have been put on a list and are being carefully watched. He has seen the enemy and it is US.

      It’s time for another American Revolution!!

      • DaveH

        Harold,
        We don’t need to resort to anything so dramatic. First we need to throw almost all of them out of Congress including most Republicans. And then we need to put people in that promise to cut back the size of Government. Hopefully this will happen in November. And fight hard to make sure your party puts up candidates that will make that promise. We can’t afford the luxury of putting more RINOs in such as Scott Brown. Sure he was better than a Democrat, but he still is a Big Government lover. Read his issues page if you don’t believe me.
        Second, if we can’t get that done and we live in a Conservative State, we can lobby our State Representatives to invoke Nullification on Unconstitutional Federal Power grabs such as the HealthCare Bill.
        Third, if all else fails, we could push our States to secede from this Unholy Union. This would result in civil war only if the Liberal States started such. They would have no moral imperative to do so like the North did when the South practiced Slavery.

        • Joe H.

          DaveH,
          sorry but I disagree with your statement about secession. That would play right into O-mans hand!!! That would give him the reason he needs to declare martial law and we don’t want that at this time!!!

      • Sal

        Harold, I’m with you! It’s so obvious that whenever the government gets involved they drive up costs. Unfortunately people in this country are too stupid to understand that simple fact. When people like Obama get elected, they go around trashing business because Obama wants to be the hero. He wants people to cling to him and his government programs so that people will become addicted to this type of nannying and always vote democrat. Democrats have never done anything to help the poor or middle class. They just give that illusion.

      • Jana

        Harold O,

  • Robert

    Thinking about what Michael J pointed out. I think he may have hit upon a legitimate resson to commence Impeachment proceedins. On inauguation day, Obama swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States. He breach that oath when he brought politics into a church. I wonder what would happen if everyone who feels disenfrachised and trampled on by this government wrote their congressman and senator and demanded impeachment proceeding be brought against Obama. If Clinton’s impeachment centered on an extra marital affair, Obama’s blatant disregard of keeping separation of church and state is sureley grounds for impeachment. What say all of you?

    • Harold Olsen

      Actually, you could not legally impeach him for mixing politics and religion in a church. There is nothing in the Constitution about the separation of church and state. That is a myth that the left uses against the right. The First Amendment says the government can’t create a state religion nor can it prohibit the American people from practicing their religion. However, the left twists it to read freedom from religion when the amendment was written for the purpose of preventing what the left is doing these days. Our founding fathers, most of whom were ordained ministers, encouraged the teaching of the Bible in schools, and it was a text book that was used in schools at this country’s beginning. Church services were held in the Capital Building and Thomas Jefferson, among others, attended church there. Religions is in nearly, if not all, of the documents written by the founding fathers.

      • DaveH

        Thanks for pointing that out Harold.
        Here is what the 1st Amendment says:
        “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

          Speaking of the 1st Amendment, did you hear about the Supreme Court ruling today:

          • DaveH

            That’s great. The only requirement should be that the candidates be required to disclose the sources of their campaign funds. If people can’t think for themselves, that is their problem.

          • Tinwarble

            I don’t think, from what I’ve heard, that they can donate to campaigns, I believe that it is only in regard to corporations and labor unions being able to run ads. It’s only a partial ruling against McCain-Feingold, somethings about it are still in place.

          • DaveH

            Tin,
            Simply put, Campaign Finance Reform is just a Trojan Horse for Incumbent entrenchment.
            It takes a lot of money to unseat an incumbent. Even before the Campaign Finance Reform laws, incumbents were very difficult to unseat. And they know that. They just pull the wool over voters’ eyes with their sweet sounding lies (I mean laws).

          • Tinwarble

            Dave,

            I have no disagreement with you there. I was just stating the facts of the case as I understand it to be.

          • eyeswideopen

            Tinwarble, the Constitution doesn’t state that corporations should be treated the same as an individual. If you want corporations to have that same right, then you won’t mind it, when some foreign country purchases their own politician and they get the laws passed to favor them and their country. Say hello to the United Corporations of America!! Our present problems have been brought on by special interests purchasing votes from our Congressmen. Why can’t the states collect money for the campaigns, audit the campaigns and then no politician needs to raise funds and therefore can’t have his vote purchased? Follow the money and you will see that corruption starts with sponsoring/contributing to the Congressmen who then in turn reward that entity with their vote. McCain knows that the system is broken, and he tried years ago to fix it, however special interests didn’t let him.

      • Robert

        Thanks for the educational reply. I guess I need to go back to the drawing board reguarding impeaching this bozo. Again, thanks for clarifying what the constitution says.

      • Tinwarble

        Harold,

        Your right, the actual “separation of Church & State” did not come about until the 1920′s during the “Progressive Movement” and there was no separation until it was handed down through Judicial rulings.

      • Curtis S

        Harold? You say that most of the founding fathers were ordained ministers? Really? I’m pretty good with American history, but not an expert. How many founding fathers were there? 50? 55? I mean do just count the guys that signed or do you count all the delegates? Let’s say you JUST count the guys that put their “John Hancock” on the document. Are you saying there were over 25 ordained ministers to sign the Declaration of Independence? Name them for me… please. I would like the list of the 25+ ordained ministers… or is your statement pure conjecture, wishful thinking and completely baseless?

        • DaveH

          Curtis,
          According to one site, there were 4 signers that were trained as ministers. They were Lyman Hall, John Witherspoon, Robert Treat Paine, and William Hooper.

          http://www.nps.gov/history/history/online_books/declaration/bioa.htm

          • Curtis S

            Hey DaveH. Unless there just seven founding fathers, I fear Mr. Olsen has not been factual or truthful. Mr. Olsen accuses his opponents of twisting the truth then makes-up his own facts and I quote (cut & paste actually):
            “However, the left twists it to read freedom from religion when the amendment was written for the purpose of preventing what the left is doing these days. Our founding fathers, most of whom were ordained ministers….”
            Four ordained ministers out of over 50 men is NOT what I would consider the definition of “most”.
            Mr. Olsen keeps piling it on when he says, “Church services were held in the Capital Building and Thomas Jefferson, among others, attended church there.”
            Thomas Jefferson attending church?! The Wikipedia entry for the Founding Fathers contradicts Mr. Olsen’s claim quite blatantly … “Some of the more prominent Founding Fathers were anti-clerical or vocal about their opposition to organized religion, such as Thomas Jefferson (who created the “Jefferson Bible”), and Benjamin Franklin.”
            Is it irony that Mr. Olsen is clearly guilty of twisting (or torturing) the facts to suit his needs? Is there a joke I missed? Or is this a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black?

          • Tinwarble

            Curtis

            Even though Mr. Olsen overstates the fact to the Founding Fathers being ministers, he is correct about Thomas Jefferson. The day after he wrote this letter to the Danbury Baptist Church (which is why people assume that he was for separation of church and state):

            “Gentlemen, — The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist Association, give me the highest satisfaction. My duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, and in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

            Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between church and State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

            I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection and blessing of the common Father and Creator of man, and tender you for yourselves and your religious association, assurances of my high respect and esteem.”

            Jefferson attended services in the House of Representatives, which were held on a regular basis in Congress then. Also, if you get your information only from “Wikipedia” you are not learning much, since many things are left out or misrepresented in Wikipedia because it is not an official source of information. If you would really like to know how the Founding Fathers felt about Religion you should check out the link I posted above “Part 3: Faith & Free Government”. You can also check out this site:

            http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/religion/rel06-2.html

          • Tinwarble

            Also, Benjamin Franklin delivered a speech at the Constitutional Convention, which he said:

            “the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this Truth–that God governs in the Affairs of Men.” “I also believe, without his concurring Aid, we shall succeed in this political Building no better than the Builders of Babel.”

          • eyeswideopen

            Tinwarble, James Madison stated “the purpose of seperation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries”. He recongized that most of the wars in history were religious and he didn’t want us to face the same. The founding fathers understood that eventually a religious group would try and force their beliefs upon others using the laws to try and achieve a national religion. I thank God ,for their wisdom in preventing even the Christians ,of which I am one, from creating a national religion. Allowing diversity is what has kept this country strong.

  • Jan Warfel

    If our country were not in such serious danger from this oppressive thug regime we presently have in D.C., Obama’s comment would be laughable!! You want to mention decency Obama how about coughing up your real birth certificate. Can’t do it because you are not a natural born citizen of the U.S. Every American and our troops deserve the truth, and you are required by the U.S. Constitution to prove citizenship. Definitely agree with impeachment against this communist/facists dictator, when it is exposed can’t we just kick him out since he is not legal? Big question is why won’t Glenn Beck, O’Reilly, Hannity, and Greta at Fox News bring this out. Sadly I just
    confirmed why. Fox News has just sold it’s “controlling interest” to a Saudi Arabian Prince named Allwaharejd. He is now Rupert Murdock’s boss and signs all of their checks!!! If I worked for Fox News I wouldn’t care who signs the checks I would expose this to the American people. Nothing is being reported in the main new outlets, and of course Fox News Outlets silence is deafening. So everyone contact Glenn Beck on radio and tv and demand he bring this forward. This is more critical than any of the other issues he is reporting!!!
    Please email all of your contacts with this news. It is true!!! We have a muslim controlling the on voice we had left protecting an illegal muslim in our highest office The Presidency!!!

    • JeffH

      This article was Posted by Haitham Sabbah on Thursday, December 15, 2005, at 10:46 pm. Whether the Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talalhas the ability to control the news remains a mystery, but this is all I could find in a quick search.
      http://sabbah.biz/mt/archives/2005/12/15/saudi-control-on-fox-news-coverage/

      In early September 2005, Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal bought 5.46% of voting shares in News Corp. This made the Fifth richest man on the Forbes World’s Richest People, the fourth largest voting shareholder in News Corp., the parent of Fox News. News Corp. is the world’s leading newspaper publisher in English. It operates more than 175 newspapers, in the UK, Australia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the US, and distributes more than 40 million papers per week.

    • Robert

      So Jan. I did some research on what you said about News Corp. The so called facts you state about Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talalhas owning controlling voting rights interest was circulated back in 2005 by some arab bloger. News Corp, while being publicly traded is more like a closely held corporation. The biggest institutional investor as of Sept 2009 is AXA Corporation who hold 3.57% shares outstanding or roughly 29 million shares. The Murdock Foundation and members of the Murdock Family own in excess of 430 million shares outstanding as of Sept. 2009. If in fact this Saudi owned controlling interest in the voting shares, by law, News Corp would have to report it. So I don’t think Beck, Hannity, O’Reily or anyone else on Fox News or any of the publishing units have anything to own up to except that their point that liberal left wingers will continue to attach them with lies and any other means available. So much for your facts. Check them first and save yourself the embarrasment of proving that your a moron.

    Barry Soetoro (ya’lls obama) is a liar. So he thinks this healthcare plan will make us decent. Decency would be to admit you are a liar and kenyan, decency would be to cater to the American people and our hungry and homeless and NOT illegals. Decency would be to give him and the illegals a free ride back to where they came from. Unions … make me sick. They have a place but grew corrupt from the get go. As wages and benefits grew higher and higher, so did the cost of living. Decency is a company taking care of their employees. Decency is NOT passing that cost on to the general public who already are getting screwed by the kenyan a-hole and the pelosi idiot.

    • DaveH

      Mark,
      Companies can only pass their costs on to the consumers if the consumers keep buying their products. And they can only stifle their competition (who would sell at cheaper prices) if they can get protection from that competition through regulations, subsidies, or other protections from Big Government.
      Big Government is the Problem.

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, when there is a monopoly who do you expect the people to purchase the product from? Silly concept. When the industry is working in collusion with each other to fix the prices, there is no competition. The insurance companies have admitted to price fixing and drawing service lines for each state. Do you recongize a monopoly when you see one??

  • Meteorlady

    A couple of quote here:

We help people that can’t help themselves with dignity. We are decent and dignified and I wonder who he thinks he is to even make that type of statement.

        Every time NerObama bows, a great big target is painted on his arse, there for all to see. Every time a potentate from one of these third-world, America-hating countries pats him on the back during a “Photo-op”, the Secret Service has to quietly remove the “Kick Me” sign from his back. This will all change, of course, after his presidency (finally) ends – whenever that may be. I just wonder how long it will take (and, whether it will happen before or after his tenure as Secretary General of the United Nations) until “He” announces that “He” is the “12th Imam”?

  • JeffH

    Obama will not stray very far from his ideaology, agenda. Americans have realized this guy has a forked tongue. There is nothing he can say or do that will change who he is or what he is about. His goal is to bring America to it’s knees and move towards the One World government. He is not a Democrat, he is a Marxist. The Democrats have written themselves out of the equation and public trust with their blatant disrespect of the American people, and they still don’t get it. They are starting to turn on each other and, in some entertaining ways, right the ship by telling us they understand the frustrations of the people(of the past 8 years). Let ‘em all rot in hell!
    I knew what Obama was about before the eletcion, but I didn’t think that the Democrats in Congress and the Senate would disregard their constituents as they have. On second thought, maybe I am just naive, afterall I’ve had to live with Boxer, Pelosi and Feinstein all my life in California.

Forgot, run the farmers out of business because the biologists and eco freaks believe some “Delta Smelt” is woth more than the lives of some 40,000 farmers and farmworkers in the largest agricultural region in America. I will not be in this state in 5 years.

          I feel for you. California is the perfect example of why drugs shouldn’t be legal, no matter that they may be doing it to themselves, we still have to live with mistakes they make, like the people they elect.

          • DaveH

            I believe that drugs are foolish, but the Drug Wars do nothing more than enrich the most evil segment of society (Drug Lords). Most of the peripheral crimes that occur as a result of the drug trade are linked directly to their high prices. The high prices occur because of their illegality. When people are determined to do drugs, you aren’t going to stop them without resorting to a totalitarian environment.
            The real problem, as I see it, is that with our current welfare state the users can get away with screwing up and not paying for their own mistakes. This is true whether they foolishly use drugs, or whether they do other non-drug related foolish things.

            Tinwarble and DaveH. One legislator in California is trying to propose a tax on legal MJ. $50 per ounce I believe. It would continue to be distributed illegaly because the “stoners” wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise.

          JeffH,

          Watched Hannity’s special on the farmers. That just tells you how incredibly insane the progressives are. To let one of the most fertile areas in the US turn into dust & to destroy thousands of lives & their economy for a stupid little fish is idiotic. What if the dinosaurs hadn’t become extinct? Can you imagine going to the mail box or to get in your car & getting eaten by a Velociraptor?

          They’re telling us that they can send people into space, but they can’t figure out how to put a filter on the pumps to keep from harming the “Delta Smelt”? Heaven help us all! The human race is the lowest priority on the Totem Pole! Oh, my gosh! Is that a politically incorrect statement? Like the one Michael Steele made when he said “Honest Ingun”?

          • JeffH

            The Delta Smelt have been dying off for years and the pumps are not the reason why. With the pumps turned off, their numbers have continued to decrease. This is more of a “natural phenomenah” than a man made situation and unfortunately the Feinsteins, Boxers and the liberals are more concerned about pleasing the eco/bio “nuts” than facing the real facts. Plain and simple, the taxpaying citizens are less valuable to a stable California economy than non-taxpaying whatevers. It is sad because I am a first generation native son and love the natural diversity in California and the weather is the best in the nation. This state has been desroyed by the same type of ultra-liberal mindset and legislation that is controlling Washington and our great nation right now. Just draw up the comparisons and reach your own conclutions.

          JeffH,

          I need to correct the spelling of the last line of my other reply so the smarty-butt “comment grammar/spelling police” won’t tell me what an idiot I am! I spelled “Injun” wrong! Sorry!

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Ha Ha Ha…LoL…USmadGirl, you are funny. Enjoy reading your posts.

            Fed Up Gal,

            Had to reply to my own post. Thank You!!! I enjoy your comments too! I’m glad to make you laugh! We all need to laugh in this time of chaos!

    • usmadgirl

      JeffH,

      All I can say is “bless your heart”! No state should have to tolerate that many arrogant, elitist, crazy Marxist air heads! That’s just EVIL!

      You need to move to TN!

      • JeffH

        usmadgirl, thanks. I will look at all of my options in 5 years or less. Have been through Tennessee, a beautiful state.

        • usmadgirl

          JeffH

          I’m in the southeastern part. The entire eastern part is the most beautiful. I lived in Colorado for a short time & it was beautiful but a completely different kind of beautiful. Other than that, I’ve been in this area (SE TN & NW GA-hate GA state tax) all my life & still love it!

          • Joe H.

            USmadgirl,
            Have a lot of relatives in Ceadartown Ga. and lived in Columbus for awhile while in the service!!! There are some beautiful areas in the northern part of the state, especially right below lookout mountain!!!

    • Fed Up Gal in NM

      JeffH,

      You poor thing….having to live anywhere near Boxer, Pelosi and Feinstein. What a bunch of self-proclamied “Robin Hoods”. But then again…I get the joy (not) of seeing and hearing Bill Richardson more often than I really care too. Guess we all have our own cross to bear in our respective states…LoL.

      On a different note…I haven’t seen any posts from LibertyTrain lately. I hope everything’s okay with LT.

        JeffH,

        Ooooops….sorry…I made another typo. I typed self-proclamied” when I meant to type “self-proclaimed”. Wanted to go on the record with that immeeeeeediately. I’d hate for Curtis S to have a spell check coronary over another typo.

        • usmadgirl

          Fed Up Gal,

          The thing that gets me is that those who correct everybody’s spelling & grammar, make mistakes themselves even in the comments to point out others’ mistakes. They need to practice what they preach – proof-read!

          • libertytrain

            US Mad – I couldn’t agree with you more on that one!

        • Joe H.

          Fed Up Gal in NM,
          Shame on you for all those typos! As Ann Landers would say, ” 60 lashes with a noodle!!” ME, ahm a ghud spellar!!!

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Joe H,

            Okay….guess I’m going to have to endure the “noodle lashing” torture….or maybe not…..maybe Obama will send the anti-torture police to my rescue….oh no…..guess they won’t…since I’m not one of their liberal Acorn nuts…(pun intended). LoL.

        Hey, Fed UP – I’m posting – I had wanted to reply to your peasant/pheasant comeback to Curtis, but couldn’t find a reply button that would have made it easy to follow your comment – anyway – love many of your recent replies in particular.

      • JeffH

        Never worry about mispelling or grammer. The keys don’t always print the correct letters. LOL! LT is doing great.

        • Fed Up Gal in NM

          JeffH,

          Yeah…that’s it….thanks for helping with my cover….lol funny.

        Fed Up Gal in NM, thanks, I’m a big boy and I’ll survive long enough to see them leave office.

        • Fed Up Gal in NM

          Well…guess that is a silver lining afterall……….heh heh. Too bad we can’t exile them to Iran.

    Interesting comment heard last night by the former COO of Microsoft. He was commenting on what little business experience the members of the current administration have (about 8% of them). The others are all political activists. So, what would you expect from this group but more social programs.

  • ONTIME

    As a Real Republican and not some damned RINO, it is good to stay on the real side and although this health scare scam is about to pass into the dew of the day for now, remember this about the party, RINO’s were constantly jumping the fence in order to undermine the priciples of the Republican party platform. These kind of people are just like those lefties of the Jackass Party, they love you when you elect them but soon after you are a source of donation income and nothing more, they are the elite, the blessed the intellignsia and by God if you try and thwart their will you will pay.

    This young un-credentialed shill we are to call a POTUS is a thug politician, he has learned to lie about any given issue and obfuscate, confuse and deny any and all commonsense issues with skill, until now. He is standing before you barefaced with a hand in the cookie jar, his overburdened jackass is lying on the ground in a comma barely able to breathe and if you are smart you will make the offer to kill his jackass for him, thus depriving him of his needed party vehicle, the source of his power and money supply. They need each other like the lawn needs fertilizer, a truly symbiotic parasitical existence of man and machine. Keep it this way because dems don’t forget and they will come back to wreak havoc again if you continue to let them, for you Real Republicans make sure you understand that RINO and a lib are much alike and they too have a parasitical relationship, you will be their meal of blood should you forget.

      OnTime,

      Very ‘colorfully’ said!

      RINO’s take note: If you promote a “Win at any cost, even if you have to be just like the other guy – you’ve turned into “The ‘Other Guy’ Light”. And, even if elected, most likely you’ll still lose out to the real “Other Guy” where it counts – in votes taken while in office. By the way, “RINO’s” lack what I call the “H” factor, they have very thin skins, unlike Rhino’s, who can take an extraordinary amount of punishment and still keep charging ahead in unwavering pursuit of their principles.

  • Rod

    This o-BUM-a dude lies every time he opens his mouth. He can’t help himself. The only people who go for his lies are those that can’t think for themselves. The mindless, brainless far left radicals.

  • Valverde

    Since when has BO had any decency? Therefore, how can he make any statement about the subject?

    • DaveH

      And how can he be so Indecent as to impoverish hard working people who are trying to take care of themselves, just so the non-workers can have a better life?

  • Ed

    Mr. Obama says: “It will be a victory for dignity and decency, and for our common humanity. It will be a victory for the United States of America.” You have two and only two choices in dealing with anything Obama says; either you may consider him to be a pathological liar, or you may consider that he is persuing very successfully his desire to destroy the USA. Regarding this specific comment, I would call it a victory for insanity, nothing else.

    Saudi Prince Alwaleed bragged about calling Fox and having them immediately change ‘Muslim Riots’ to ‘Civil Rights Riots.’ He also ordered Murdoch to pull ads that tried to convince Americans to ween themselves off of foreign (Saudi, Iranian, Venezuelan) oil. MSNBC and CNN both ran the ads. He’s the second biggest investor in Fox, even though the company loses money every year, and he’s been pulling strings behind the scenes for years.
