It's Good to be the King!

Good Morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, March 5, 2014. Our friend, the lovely Chiquita Cicada, has "popped" in for breakfast this morning. Her head is spinning from the rapid changes the omnipotent President Obama keeps making to the Unaffordable Care Act. She has asked for the pleasure of your company at breakfast. This morning we are having Bloody Mary's adorned with celery, olives and shrimp.

Hello, my much admired human family. Your President Obama is poised to announce yet another major delay in the implementation of his Unaffordable Care Act. The reason is quite transparent. He wants to take away some of the election pressure from Democrats whose jobs are on the line. After all this thing called ObamaCare was never about your health needs. Rather, it was about power. In order for the Democrats to retain power, they must get elected in the upcoming election. With the unpopular Unaffordable Care Act looming, the likelihood of re-election is getting dimmer by the moment. The answer for this man who would be King is quite simple. Change the Law! After all, he has that almighty pen and a telephone. It is all he needs. Most certainly he doesn't need the other branches of government. Clearly, the Founding Fathers had it all wrong!

Erase It!

Edit It Now!

If the law doesn't work, the answer is quite simple. Get rid of it for a little while. Now of course, it is necessary to believe that voters are simpletons who will be moved into a state of contentment by the decision to delay the implementation of the plan to its fullest extent. Apparently, this administration realizes that voters are not jazzed about the notion that they can't keep the plans they liked. President Obama solved this problem by putting this aspect of the law on hold until after his partners in misery are elected. Now bear with me on this. I may be only a lowly bug, but for the life of me I can't understand why any person with even a bit of intelligence would be lulled into complacency by this feeble attempt at manipulation. The Dems will have to answer for the millions of people who already lost their insurance. There is no going back where this is concerned. The only tactic left for the Obama Administration is to keep fiddling with the law to suit their needs. Forget about your needs. Your needs never entered into the picture.

It's Amazing

President Obama can simply pull another rabbit out of his hat and change anything he wants. When he said he would go it alone, he meant it! This bug is stunned by the way this administration can alter laws to conform to the changing political environment. The Dems in the Senate need to keep seats, so "ipso presto" the law magically adapts itself to their needs.

Another bit of sleight of hand is occurring for members of Congress who are supposed to sign up for ObamaCare. The difference, and you knew there would be a difference, is that these privileged folks can opt out of this mess by retiring. Unlike you, members and staff who retire will be able to go back to health insurance coverage under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. That is the same exact coverage that other federal workers can use when they retire. These lucky people will have a wide array of coverage to choose from and none of it is remotely related to ObamaCare. It is good to be in the King's circle of power. In the meantime, members of Congress and their staff will enjoy the subsidies that the law offers them. President Obama believes this generosity is necessary in order to stop a possible "brain drain" of talent in Washington.

Use Your Brain to Vote!

Now Here's an Idea!

If the administration is so worried about losing talented people, perhaps you should put them on notice that they are in danger of losing you. This remark goes directly to those citizens who saw fit to elect President Obama two times. What more proof do you need to make you realize that his presidency is just not working out? He doesn't have your best interests at heart. Most of Congress doesn't either. Let all of them know you have had it and throw them out of office. Take back your country, your liberty and your dignity. Don't be fooled by childish games that delay the pain in order to trick you into submission. Be smarter than that. The moment of truth has arrived. You can do it! Make some noise!

Chiquita, when you say "don't be fooled by childish games", and "Be smarter than that", to whom are you talking? To the idiots that elected him twice? The American voter who can "be smarter than that" is in the minority. Most of the American voting public is, basically, stupid! I repeat, he got elected twice. By the time his term is up, it will be too late. The only hope I have is his impeachment and conviction. And hope is fading.

Good Morning taxlarry,

I suppose I was being unrealistic when I thought that perhaps an Obama voter would read this and have a change of mind. I can dream can't I? See you at the Inn. Thanks for a great comment.

Chiquita, this administration was able to buy votes as cheaply as a free cell phone and free birth control. Those relatively cheap items were enough to cause millions of citizens to sell their precious vote.

I can't recall a single decision coming out of Washington in years that has been something for the good of we citizens. It has all been for more power over the people by this rapidly growing government. The sad part is that many of our voters don't pay attention to what is happening and will gladly sell their vote to the highest bidder in future elections.

POP:

For those who think that a delay until after the election will secure the Dem's seats in the Senate, they are just stupid. Obama is only trying to cover his bum by trying to lure the Dems into believing in him instead of running for the hills. If the Dems win this time, with all that is going on, then I give up and our country will be lost forever. (That is, of course, unless the Republicans do something stupid.) Obama does think that everyone except for him is stupid. Let's see. November cannot come too soon for me. Just think: Harry Reid will be out as leader of the Senate, and Obama will be shut down, because he will know that if he continues to step out of line, the Senate will start impeachment proceedings. I cannot wait!!!!! Now, off to the Inn. Chiquita Cidada is waiting for me.

Good Morning Old Poolman,

I am trying to stay optimistic which many people may find funny, given what I write about. Having said that, I don't expect a brain shift on the part of people with their hands out for the next free thing. I am hoping for an awakening of people who, at one time, could think straight. We are falling apart in every way and if the majority can't see it, then we are doomed. See you at the Inn!

God Morning Pino,

Well, you are upbeat and it feels good. Now let's see things get on the right track by throwing the losers off the train. To the Inn with thee! Chiquita wants to talk jewelry design with you.

Pop and Chiquita,

Obama's abysmal domestic policy performance is only eclipsed by his foreign policy naivety. I wonder if his post-election flexibility with Putin is causing him nether region discomfort yet.

Good Morning Tom,

He never feels discomfort. He can't because he is infallible! See you at the Inn. We all need to get away from him for a while.

Which leaves me to wonder who should we vote for in the next election? There can be no doubt in any rational voter that most of the politicians are bought and paid for, so who has our best interests at heart? Show me one and prove to me that they are not owned by a corporation and I'll gladly vote for them.

Bill has a great point. Politicians should be like race cars and have stickers on them stating who owns them. That would sure help us decide whom to vote for and who to stay away from.

If people are still stupid enough to not see that all these political moves are political moves at the expense of their health and health care then I may have to find another country to reside in. All these delays are to try to get the Dems past the mid-terms and then it will all be socked right up their yazoos.

I love the idea, but getting it accomplished is another ball game. We can try, can't we? See you at the Inn.

Dear Frog Prince,

I suggest we pick out that other country. Didn't you like Costa Rica? See you at the Inn and we'll talk about it.

I love Costa Rica. We could start a community of Hub Pages Ex-Pats. Can you even imagine the great conversations we could have around the community fire pit in the evenings?

Come election time, the sound bites lines will be something like: “I don’t know why the insurance companies dropped coverage, the law does not require changes until next year. Blame it on the insurance company, vote for me.”

OR

“What law? It’s all lies.”

OR

“The HealthCare system won a Nobel Peace Prize.”

OR

“Don’t read the law, just do what we tell you.”

OR

“This is a pay to not play system.”

Good Morning Mike,

Just the thought of it has lifted my spirits! I will ponder this all day long.... See you later at the Inn.

Good Morning FitnezzJim,

They have already begun the spin. The Republicans better find a way to cut through the garbage and get somebody in the WH who respects this country and has talent. If Hillary finds her way into the Oval Office, we are doomed. See you at the Inn.

If we take the Senate in November, we may be able to persuade enough Democrats that continuing with Obamacare will mean such a disaster for their party that enough may be willing to join us in a veto-proof repeal of Obamacare.

Logic apparently has no part in the minds of many Americans. Logically, the president has no power to change an existing law. Logically, anything that is supposed to be as good as "Obamacare" should be given to the people as quickly as possible but yet they delay for elections. Logically, anyone who voted for this insane law should indeed lose their seat in high office. Illogically, some Americans will run right back to the poll and vote for these idiots fending fear of conservative ideas. America is not asleep and dreaming, it is saturated with stupidity. Good piece, Poppy! ~ WB

Dear Wayne,

It is so wonderful to see you here. Your last line, I'm sorry to say, says it all, "America is saturated with stupidity." See you at the Inn. We really need to catch up!

Sadly, yes America is saturated with stupidity. Or is it laziness? People looking for a free ride and therefore voting for someone who has absolutely no experience (not once, but twice) all because he promises them something for nothing. That is going to be difficult to overcome, until they are hit square in the face with reality when that socialistic ideology fails (and it always does) and leaves them, and everyone else, jobless, penniless and hopeless. As far as how Obama the King continues to manipulate and usurp our constitution by picking and choosing what portions of a law that he wants to implement, and to whom he chooses to enforce it upon, it will not stop until WE stop it. How? By continuing to scream from the rooftops and by changing the power in the senate. Until Harry Reid is removed, the constitutional conservatives in the house can do little. Other than Obama, Reid has to be the most arrogant, power usurping individual I have ever seen. He has transformed the senate into a one man show, and continues to get away with it. America has got to wake up in 2014, or we are screwed. With no checks and balances to hold Obama in check, he will run wild in his final two years, and will finish what he set out to do. Fundamentally change America. His delays in Obamacare is exactly as pop described. It is all a political attempt to save the senate for the Dems. If you recall when Ted Cruz stood on the senate floor for 24 hours, in an attempt to get Obamacare delayed, he was mocked and called an ubstructionist. Now Obama is doing the same thing Cruz was calling for, only Obama is doing it for clear political posturing, and now all of a sudden delay is an awesome thing. I sure hope his simple minded supporters and worshipers can see through all that. Somehow, I doubt it. O.K. Rant over :-)

Good Morning Howie,

Where have you been all my life? I swear we must be twins separated at birth. You said it all in a perfect state of the union commentary. If Hillary takes over, we might as well pack up and find a new garden to grow in. If I could vote your comment up, I would! See you at our imaginary Inn, where freedom is king and common sense prevails!

I was shocked when he was elected the first time, I was ashamed when he was elected the second time. He is destroying our country and there is little we can do about it now. It seems as though good people with integrity don't even want to run for president anymore. Our options are always sad.

Dear sgbrown,

I feel the same way, but I want to believe that so much has happened that those who drank the cool-ade are happy to spit it out. Let's hope.


Howie Watts profile image

Howie Watts 2 years ago

sgbrown... that is what the socialist movement is banking on. That we just get weary and give up. We CAN do something about Obama's attack on our republic. We MUST hold the house and take back the senate to start. Without funding, it does not matter what he wants to do. If we control both branches of the house we can cut off his funding. Don't give up...fight harder :-)

You nailed it on the fact that laws can be written to cover anything. Soon, we will not be able to walk the streets without paying tolls. My hope for a suitable running candidate for president is gone.

Good Morning teaches,

I feel the same way. I also believe that for the remainder of Obama's term he will, by executive fiat, finally change us completely.
