The Sky Isn't Falling! YET

Updated on September 30, 2013
Shut Er Down!
Shut Er Down!

I Can't Believe He's Not In Handcuffs Either.

As a nation we should be used to Obama's childish temper tantrums by now. Whenever he's on television anymore I hit the mute button because I have a pretty good idea of what is coming. His latest ploy is to call people extremists and he has his minions aboard with the name calling. I don't expect the people who are supposed to be the leaders of this nation to start childish name calling because they can't get their way. Leaders resort to leadership not sniping.

The use of words like anarchists, arsonists, terrorists, Nazis, extortionists, wacko birds, hobbits, suicide bombers and so forth and so on are not becoming of leaders of a nation, regardless of political affiliation in McCain's instance. There is primarily a two party political system in the United States and it should be useful in blending ideas from across America in a melting pot called the nation's Capitol. That train ran off the track completely with the election of Barack Hussein Obama who is a hyper partisan with a hidden agenda he is good at disguising. We can cover that at another time.

Right now we're on the see-saw of political theater concerning the Continuing Resolution (CR) and funding the government, What few media maggots aren't mentioning is why we are continually on this treadmill concerning something that is the federal law of this land. That's called passing an annual budget. Since Obama assumed office this nation has been absent any annual fiscal budget to guide those in Washington about how much money they have to work with. The debt ceiling is tied into this and that battle is about to be replayed again too.

All of this "chicken little" talk we see is because we have elected officials who have failed to do their job. They will continue on that course until we, the citizens of this nation, call them out on it and hold them accountable for being professional pick pockets.

One of the biggest offenders is Barack Obama who wants to act incensed that Congress isn't doing their job and has to pay the past bills that have been racked up. He fails to mention that, as of right now, he is responsible for about a $7 trillion increase being added to the national debt in less than 5 short years. He has done nothing but want to spend money and waste tax payer dollars chasing the illusion that taking money out of the private sector will spur the economy That has never been true and never will be.

Then we have one Harry Reid sitting up there on his pompous butt in the Senate. He has the audacity to say that this nation doesn't need an annual budget to operate. That is technically true because they have been doing just that. But by doing business in that manner we see what we have been seeing, We have been seeing "fiscal cliffs" until I just shake my head in disbelief. Then "sequestration" came along because they couldn't reach an agreement. That was Obama's idea actually and he pounded the podium and told us how terrible that was going to be and I think the average American hasn't felt much, if any, of it.

Now it is a "government shutdown" which might not be too bad of an idea. All they keep doing by being there is screwing this up even further. A government shutdown isn't the end of the world as Obama seems to make it out to be. If he and those clowns in the US Senate had done their jobs and passed an actual budget we wouldn't be looking at another "manufactured crisis." That's an actual fact and Obama avoids facts when he usually speaks. Rhetoric is sometimes more beneficial to his image than the use of facts.

We've had shutdowns before and we're still here as a nation. We've never had a health care law before that was rammed down our throats though and part of the bucking we now see revolves around that issue. I heard someone mention another fact the other day that gets lost in this debate. Constitutionally no Congress is bound by the actions of a previous Congress. Many don't realize that. Even some of those sitting up there pontificating, like Pelosi, don't seem to grasp that simple concept.

No one likes to be held hostage. Right now "We, the People" have been the ones being held hostage for several decades now while we have career politicians in charge rather than statesmen. After a while it gets tiresome and I have come to the realization that all this "manufactured crisis" environment we have been experiencing, especially during the last five years, is so that the thieves we have elected can continue to point fingers at each other and try to cover their tracks about the absolute mess they have made in this nation. Obama and his minions have been using the "hostage taking" rhetoric but it isn't them that are the hostages. It is the citizens of this nation who pay the taxes to keep them in the life style they have become accustomed to that are the true hostages.

The sky isn't falling. Will it fall? I believe from everything I have read and researched that little chunks of people's individual sky will be falling with the implementation of Obamacare. When I see Obama tell the nation that there is "no evidence" that Obamacare is affecting the job situation and employers hiring part time employees or taking full timers and making them part timers it doesn't pass the smell test because FACTS say otherwise.

When I see 10 states whose private insurance industry gets wiped out by exchanges it does give me pause. In those states the largest insurers are pulling out citing the cost of Obamacare. All this is just the beginning of the train wreck. If you've ever seen a train wreck it isn't a pretty sight. What I sense is that Obama is so vain that he can't admit that something with his name attached to it is a failure just like he is.

We have a problem and the problem is those professional politicians we keep sending to Washington DC over and over again. There are no fresh ideas allowed there anymore.. That needs to be changed as do many of the faces on both sides of the aisle. The best interests of our nation need to take precedence over massaging their over sized , elitist egos. Maybe if these professional pick pockets didn't get their paychecks and perks during this shutdown it would give them pause.

How many "non-essential" personnel are going to be furloughed? If they are non-essential do we need them on the payroll? Why did the US Senate take the whole weekend off? Pesky questions abound. Why don't our self-serving lawmakers, and their staff, want to live under Obamacare like everyone else if it is so great? Why isn't the Obama clan going to enroll if it is the best thing since sliced bread? Are they better than the average American?

The most recent Reuter's poll had Obama's approval rating at 39%. He shouldn't wonder why. He is getting to be totally non-essential.

A Health Care Red Line? Really?.

      Hi Tsadjatko,

      Thanks so much for your kind words.

      It is no wonder that Obamacare is still being challenged in the courts:

      (1) Obamacare violates the Tenth Amendment.

      (2) Obamacare was passed in violation of Senate cloture rules.

      (3) Obamacare contains unfunded appropriations for HHS oversight.

      (4) Obamacare contains no appropriations for the federal exchanges.

      (5) Obamacare violates First Amendment religious conscience rights.

      (6) Obamacare premium loads and discounts are excise taxes in disguise which violate the excise tax Uniformity requirement of the US Constitution (since the loads and discounts are based on income, not a uniform percentage of the value of the insurance itself).

      (7) Obamacare violates the US Constitution's General Welfare Clause, because it benefits one large group (lower income people) at the expense of another large group (business and their middle class employees) due to the premium load and discount structure.

      On the practical side, clinical doctors are already retiring early in anticipation of fee cap reductions (they are rightfully afraid that once private PPO's are corralled into the exchanges, fee caps will drop to Medicare levels). And this is when we need even more clinical doctors to address high medical utilization due to the aging of the baby boom cohort. The absence of an adequate number of primary care doctors will force people who need care reasonably quickly to use emergency rooms, leading to completely avoidable patient deaths as the ER triage system breaks down due to patient overload. Further, premium loads on business will be so high they'll pay the penalty tax instead. And middle class workers, who no longer have employer provided health insurance, for the most part won't be able to afford indivdual poplicies at the exchanges due to the same loads, so they'll just pay the penalty tax too. Obamacare will not as advertised extend high quality health care to all, but instead will wreck our medical system, and "switch" insurance coverage from the middle class to the lower income class. And the care the lower income class receives will be terrible due to attrition of family doctors and internists.

      Stu, why do your comments always sound like they should be hubpages? Guess it is because you succinctly and accurately address the issues and get right to the point.

      A point I'd like to make is how can the administration keep lauding that Congress passed Obamacare, the president signed it, the Supreme Court upheld it, Obama campaigned on it a second time and was reelected.

      They ignore the facts the media and even Republicans don't seem to want to mention:

      Obamacare is headed back to the supreme court

      That majorities of voters continue to oppose it in polls.

      The Supreme Court’s rewriting of the original healthcare legislation was bad but Obama has since rewritten parts of the law, illegally I might add, to appease his supporters (ie unions). The law that is going into effect is not the law the Supreme Court ruled on!

      Bottom line, when a country has a supreme leader who is above the law, unchallenged by the press, and who can address the country with unending, blatant lies and still be given an ounce of credibility to anything he says or for that matter an ounce of respect that country IS, politically, a banana republic. When run like a banana republic it's economy will eventually become that of a banana republic. Hail Barack Obanana!

      Facts don't matter to the morons in Congress or the White House. This sadly applies to most Congressional GOP's as it does to Democrats. How dare John McCain call the TPM "whacko birds," as if we were revolutionaries? This insulated RINO actually can't see that the very planks of the TPM, being a return to constructionist interpretation of law, respecting private property rights, and taking serious steps to correct our looming federal debt crisis are completely in line with the Constitution. In truth, the "revolutionaries" are the Democrats and their RINO enablers who are forcing our nation down the path of debt financed socialist fiat dictatorship. The TPM is actually counter-revolutionary, as it is trying to return our nation to its founding roots of economic freedom, small federal government based on enumerated powers, and State level controls to prevent the anarchy of social perversion.

      Jim - You mention there are 10 States "whose private insurance industry gets wiped out by exchanges". Do you have a source for that? Which States are they? More importantly, how are their Senators voting on the HealthCare topic?

      What first shocked me with the name calling was former President Bush calling Minutemen 'vigilantes' - a supposedly conservative national leader labeling patriotic Americans as criminals...the insanity! I didn't give that clown a pass and I certainly won't give the current clown and his minions a pass. The use of slander against any group by so-called American 'leaders' is unacceptable.

      Just my opinion here, but I don't think he gives a rat's ass about health care. He's pushing obamacare down America's throat because he knows it can do nothing but hurt the economy and America. The idea of health care for all is great but Obamacare doesn't provide it. In fact, it makes for much more expensive health care for everyone and none for many. The man wants nothing more than a huge confrontation and a shut down suits his purposes well. He wants the masses in an uproar. He wants civil unrest and riots in the streets which is what he tried so hard to get with the occutoddlers. He's trying again with this. He's a master manipulator and the opposition is really playing into this hands. If republicans fail, they are seen as weak. If they succeed, he paints them as holding the nation hostage. Either way he's still in power. When he gets things stirred up enough, then he has the excuse he has always wanted to start using his homeland security forces and all of his FEMA centers. Lastly, the fact that all of his drills for both of them, all of the equipment deliveries, the readiness of facilities, all of it falls due on Oct. 1. Funny, isn't that the date for the supposed shutdown? Isn't it the date his healthcare exchange opens up? He wants a major showdown so he can further step on the necks of America and this time take away all freedoms with the sheeple cheering him on as they cower behind their couches watching the live streaming news feeds on their Obama phones. Just my thoughts and maybe I'm paranoid. God knows I hope so but I kind of doubt it. Would you put it past him? I think tomorrow is the opening bell for the fight of the century.

      Mike - What you are describing are low information voters who have no business going to any polling place in this nation. We really do need to look at our voting system and who pays what and who does what. If you pay no income tax then maybe you should in order to be enfranchised. Just a thought.

      RonB - The great "Uniter" is tearing this nation apart for specific reasons. If it were an accident then he is an ignoramus. I don't have him being that. A sly cunning fox maybe who someone let into the hen house we call our nation.

      None of us expect the leader of a nation to resort to temper tantrums and name calling. However, Obama has proven time and again that he is the leader of a nation in name only. He has repeatedly proven that he is totally incapable of leading a kindergarten class let alone a nation. Sadly, his puppets in the Senate continue to follow his lead - they too have proven that they are terrified to go against his mandates. Some have said that those who bow down to Obama do so in fear of being called a racist if they do otherwise. I think the fear of Obama goes much deeper than the fear of being labeled a racist.

      Jim - It makes me wonder if the "jobs added" increase was not part of a plan. Many of those who were cut to part time work have had to take a second part time job to pay the bills.

      One person working two jobs distorts the unemployment figures unless the reader actually looks at how many of these jobs are part time. Most of us know the reported numbers are fictitious because of all those unemployed who are no longer counted.

      Others have learned they can actually make more money from staying unemployed and collecting "entitlements." They have dropped their standard of living of course, but find this preferable to working a part time minimum wage job. Having to pay nearly four bucks a gallon for gas to travel to and from work made this decision necessary for many. Their travel costs would be more than their take-home pay from the minimum wage job.

      Based on this, the libs have a simple solution; just raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and everything will be OK. With thinking like this is it any wonder we are now seeing this country coming apart at the seams?

      The Frog Prince 4 years ago from Arlington, TX

      Mike - If anyone has been paying attention to "jobs added" in the economy during the monthly employment reports from BLS, they would see that the majority of the jobs being added are part time jobs. They should be able to connect the dots from there.

      I have to wonder if members of the Obama fan club who now are working 29 or less hours per week still believe the lies? It is easy to believe most anything until one is personally affected, then the truth becomes harshly clear.

      For Obama to announce that Obamacare has had no effect on employers or employment opportunities is no doubt one of the biggest whoppers he has ever told. There are now thousands of formerly full time workers who are now part workers who might disagree with this latest statement from our President.

      When will the rest wake up and realize almost this entire administration is unfit to do the job they were elected to do?
