How to Ruin America

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about how it seems that this administration is doing all it can to ruin America.  Then I ran across this video at Mustang's.....

See what I mean?

Wow, I was going to write a post on this very thing. This guy didn't steal my thunder, he took the whole storm.
This guy nailed it.!

Ed Bonderenka said...

I hate it when a plan comes together...

Ed Bonderenka said...

K. T. McFarland, on the Bennett show, just said no administration is this stupid. Its intentional.

Fredd said...

I liked the reminder here that, unlike what the Obama administration and liberals in general believe, we freedom loving Americans are not riff raff, holy poly, Proletariats, rabble or a mob.

He forget to mention another moniker that the left uses to refer to us behind closed door in smoke filled rooms: The Great Unwashed.



Liberalmann said...

Another simple minded video from the right. Yes, you can keep your plan, but the tax payers now have to pick up the tab to pay for those who had crappy plans which did not cover things like emergency room visits and certain diseases. How do you like paying for those deadbeats, wingnuts?

Ed Bonderenka said...

Lmann: You get a participation award.
Thanks for stopping by.

Kenosha Marge said...

There was a time when Democrats would stand up for a person's right to free speech, even if they did not personally agree with it...But that was long ago, NO MORE, now today’s Democrats, who are know as LIBERAL’S are champions of Political Correctness and most liberals parrot or mimic whatever the progressive/liberal party line is, and it is usually tired to cowardness... like the core of most liberals they have become altogether worthless. All liberals are cowards, and cowards are always liberals. they aren't willing to stand up for anything!

The Great Unwashed said...

"He forget to mention another moniker that the left uses to refer to us behind closed door in smoke filled rooms: The Great Unwashed."

Otherwise known as "takers" and "moochers" by the extremely well-groomed elitists like Republican presidential nominee, Willard Romney.

Fredd said...

Mr. Unwashed:

Good ol' Willard never used the term "Great Unwashed" when he was talking about that 47% of takers and moochers. Allow me to properly label those guys: takers and moochers (if I may borrow your terminology).

Sam Huntington said...

I saw this the other day at Mustang’s blog, and remarked then that what this man is saying is the absolute truth. This is an important message—for all Americans who value liberty and who see bureaucratic encroachment upon our rights as a threat to that liberty.

What makes such messages even more important is that you are not hearing them from the GOP, which I believe is part of our problem in this country.

Now the question becomes, what do we intend to do about it? If watching the video and going back to sleep is all that we're prepared to do, then we too are part of the problem.

Meanwhile, Liberal man continues to Hillary Clinton’s village idiot.

Rita said...

Someone needs to explain to me how the plan I had previously, which I paid $475 premium with a $3,500 deductible was a crappy plan that was cancelled because of Obamacare, but the new one I pay $588 a month with a $6,300 deductible including prescriptions (which were previously paid before deductible) is a better plan. I NEVER had issues with my insurance before Obamacare, even the year I spent 8 days in critical care.

Oh. I get it. I now have a free mammogram. Which used to cost me $100, $200 tops.

Try again Libjerk. Then again, don't. You continue to display your ignorance as to how real life works.

Z said...

Your comments here today, folks, are even better than usual, if that's possible!

CnC...he SURE DID.

Ed...it is intentional; they can't have done THIS much damage through stupidity; especially not when we hear so many of their ideological folks are so often consulting AT the White House. No, they know what they're doing; I just don't see WHY ANY American can hate this country SO BADLY as to bring it down to a socialist playing field...of everybody gets little, nobody does great.
I'll never forget Obama inferring there's a limit to how much money is enough...remember?
K.T. McFarland rocks.

Fredd....but, you see, the mainstream media's all ABOUT calling us names in such subtle or not subtle ways, depending on how 'brave' they are.
And then we have profs like that idiot recently who said we'd have no colleges if it were up to Republicans.
Personally, compared to the brainwashing to hate America our kids are paying for NOW, maybe that would be an improvement.
And, at least we had kids exposing the jerk.

How I WISH CNN or MSNBC had covered that story!!! But, they just WON'T.

Lib'mann', my policy went up, too, and I was PERFECTLY happy with it...I was not getting anything for nothing but I was happy with it.
And, by the way...we have ALWAYS covered those ER visits; we're the 'deadbeats' who PAY for those who won't or can't.

Please link here how Republicans want to keep people sick; and don't refer to THe Nation, okay? Please? That's just even more stupid than usual.
Rita's right about you, sadly.

(Rita..good job) And my insurance went up, too. Some are going up far more than ours did, by the way. And they're only going to get much higher, but Obama's thugs have planned for those things to happen after elections AND I believe it's clear they're hoping for it all to fall apart so we HAVE to go on single payer..wait for it. As Ed and KT and Bennett suggest; this trainwreck isn't from stupidity.

Ed...you cracked me up with the Participation Award. Sad, isn't it!?

Kenosha Marge..Hi, and welcome!
They will stand up for anything that will bring our country down: no drilling, no fracking, no pipeline, the healthcare nightmare, too high a minimum wage, the divisions Obama's creating between races, economic strata, etc....you and I both could make a list.
But, I get your point about not standing up....
Oh, for the days of honest Dems like Tip and Patrick....they were liberals but they fought FOR America as our founders planned her, not against her.

"great unwashed"....
Romney was right; thanks for the reminder.
But, don't worry...we'll continue to pay for those who won't. And we're happy to pay for those who can't (SURPPRISE!) :-)

Sam...what would you like to do?
Other than can Boehner's rear end yesterday if we could?
Didn't you love seeing him crying again? Now he's saying other Republicans whine and cry? oh, man. He is THE WORST.

No one. Not one person is stopping you from going to live in a communist country, Libjerk. Go. Please. Heck, we may even take up a collection here and pay for your one way ticket.

It would be fascinating to see how long you last.

Until you are willing to go live in the utopia you adore, shut the £€>%# up.

Duckys here said...

What a load of rot.

Our energy production has expanded substantially under President Toonces.

Ed, what does the Bible say about filling aquifers with fracking fluid and tar sands spills? Just curious. Are we required to trash the place before the end times?

Because unlike the rest of the industrialized world, private insurers own you butt and there is nothing to stop them from stiffing you.

Keep paying, for profit insurers love you.

Profit, it's what makes America great. Think of all the low paying jobs and executive yachts you're financing and you won't feel so bad.

Bob said...

A semi-famous home-spun Georgia celebrity once said, "Thank God for Alabama. If it weren't for Alabama we would be slap up against Mississippi!"

Others joke that the best thing coming out of Alabama is Interstate 20. There may be some truth to that except for the excellent university system there, and the absolutely beautiful mountain scenery in the northern part of the state.

When I did projects in Alabama, I learned that the people there take their religion seriously. Plus, they are not fools.

The California Luddites will not be able to fool the people in Alabama about economics, or the cost of energy.

I like the point that we are not part of the "masses". We are citizens with opinions, and we vote. We need to safeguard our voting rights, and we do that by not allowing our votes to be diluted. Voter ID makes sense, and we in Georgia understand that.

Bob said...

@Ducky: "Because unlike the rest of the industrialized world, private insurers own you butt and there is nothing to stop them from stiffing you."

There's nothing wrong with private insurers. The problem is that state governments will not allow sufficient competition, and that the system had gravitated to a job benefit rather than a health care system.

The state of the auto industry supports this notion. There are literally dozens of auto insurance companies competing in any given state, and the customer is free to buy from the most competitive, even though being forced by law to buy insurance.

Certainly, Ducky, you don't automatically think that the health insurance companies are evil.

Anonymous said...

"Our energy production has expanded substantially under President Toonces."


Indeed it has. But not on FEDERALLY "managed" land. Matter of fact they're behind about 4 years in granting any leases on Federal land.

The increase ( which pres bullshit ) took credit for at SOU address...was on privately owned land. Much to the dismay and chagrin of those who'd like us to burn cow patties, no wood, no coal, nor oil for our energy needs.

Keystone? Have you ever seen a map of the millions of miles of pipeline already running underground in this country.

More Warren Buffet trains have had more spills ,derailments and accidents then any pipeline malfunctions. But hey.....let's not talk about that.

Obungo...sucks canal water. Maybe he ought to convert AF1 to run off his BS and bad breath?

Bob said...

@ Ducky: "Ed, what does the Bible say about filling aquifers with fracking fluid and tar sands spills?"

I know the comment wasn't intended for me, but I would like to know if you really think that fracking fluids will somehow seep into aquifers, or the water table?

The use of fracking in and of itself will NOT pollute anybody's water table. It is virtually impossible for the fracking process that takes place 10,000 feet to over 14,000 feet to leak into a water table found at the 100 to 1200 ft level.

The only way for something to leak is for the well shaft to be faulty, and then it would not be fluids leaking, but methane gas. It is relatively easy to repair the well, and owners do so pronto because leaking gas means money.

My Blog said...

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that Barack Obama is damaging America more than any other president in its history.
First of all and maybe most importantly, he is running up crushing federal debt at a level unprecedented in American history. We are talking trillions upon trillions of dollars in debt. This ensures the that the future of our children will not be a prosperous one. Not with the runaway inflation, and the eventual financial collapse that we are guaranteed to see down the road. Obama has endorsed, and will continue to foster, the biggest entitlement program that this country has ever seen and will ever see again (I hope) . Obama is also ushering in socialism at a enormous pace . Obama is destroying American business to an unprecedented degree, and he’s just getting started. Already we see major automakers and other industries begin to fail and we see stores and other business’s closed and boarded up all over our cities.
Obama has been lending (GIVING) aid, money, and support to dictators and terrorists. getting chummy with tyranys like Hugo Chavez, and releasing dangerous GITMO prisoners who are terrorists to handing almost a billion dollars to Palestinian terrorists, Obama has yet to meet a terrorist or tyrant he doesn’t seem to like.
America's failures and decline under Obama isn't due to mistakes, or ignorance, or even due to his ineptness, it is planned. Obama is intentionally attempting to destroy America Period.

The Assimilationist said...

Maybe George Zimmerman should learn how to play basketball.

Sparky @ My Thoughts Exactly said...

I warned everyone that would listen about Obama in 2009. He absolutely HATES America. Hands down. He wants us dead and in hell with all the other 'infidels'. He's an evil man.
I'm going to share this on my blog too.
Thanks Z.
God bless and be well. ~:)

Rita said...

Private insurers own my butt? Really? Seems they owned it a LOT less before your magical pill of Obamacare.

That has to. Be one of the most ignorant statements you have ever written Duckyyyy. And THAT's saying something.

Why don't you join your communist friend Libjerk and MOVE to a communist country. Quit trying to insist our country adhere to your ignorant ideology.

Go, move. Please. If you hate capitalism. So much, why do you live here? Belief me, we all would be much better off if you and your ilk moved to your utopia and left the rest of us alone.

Z said...

My Blog; it sure feels like it.
But I believe the far leftwingers use expressions like yours to damn all of us. I can't imagine anybody not seeing the negatives Obama's doing to America...but the minute we say "he's ruining our country," we're said to be exaggerating and silly.
I believe this is the way many totalitarian leaders controlled the opposition...make them look stupid when they call foul.

I hope it doesn't work in America.
Actually, I think many people are starting to wake up. I hope so.\

Rita...well said...all of it.

By the way...they're destroying Blue Shield; is that supposed to be a PLUS? They were WONDERFUL to me during Mr. Z's illness, etc. I swear I never saw ONE BILL...NO COPAY, NOTHING. It was like he died with amazing medical care for free. I'll never forget that. Yes, we paid, but we're not freeloaders and neither of us expected to not even pay premiums by which we deserved the medical care!!$$$

Bob....thank God for a voice of reason that drowns out the leftwing misinformation..
THANK YOU.

Duckys here said...

Pointless.

This is like trying to talk about use vs. exchange value with a doctrinaire Libertarian.

Kid said...

Rita, Spot on as usual. Actually libtards Don't want to live by their civilization destroying policies, they want to spread them around the world so that everyone is suffering and they finally get their 'equality'. Then they'll be happy.

It's why they're called libtards. Retards. Mental Disorder of the 1st degree. Sociopath.

Btw, the evil that is obamacare hasn't even begun to flex it's muscles yet. Wait until good quality doctors vacate the program entirely or make themselves available for patients willing and able to pay for 'Health Care'.

This is why there is an Affirmative Action clause in the bill. So that this vacuum can be filled with a bunch of doctor Sheniquias and Keyshawns..

Course, those poor folks the idiot libtards thought would be receiving health care Finally! will be waiting 12 hours plus to see one of the sub-quality doctors and that's after waiting a few weeks to even get an appoint because of the backed nature of the 'review board' also known as the death squads.

I can't wait to meet one of these morons on the street crying out about what happened to HC. I'll ask if they voted for the democrats and if they say yes I'll get a big smile on my face and yell out "*en A!"

At best, .... it will morph into what canadia has now after decades of murder thru denial of service and torture of the system - people will be allowed to purchase private plans again in addition to paying all these new taxes for non-health care.
Remember folks, when adding up the cost of your health care, be sure to add in 21 brand new taxes, and the price increases you absorb from every industry in America trying to stay in business and pay for this garbage.


Duckys here said...

kid, shouldn't you be out cornholing a canoer?

Z said...

Kid, my ins. agent tells me 40% of New York docs are planning to retire. I hope he heard wrong but he's very well informed.

Young doctors, according to a 3rd yr med student I know at UCLA, LOVE it! But, he said he's gone to meetings where the leadership asks for a hand of "Who's Republican here?" I swear. He was stunned.
He said all the deans are liberals; there is simply no other way to look at any of the insurance situation but OBAMACARE.

Sadly, those young docs who've been sold a bill of goods will be finding out soon what they bought into. :-( My own nephew's a med student and I worry for him.

My agent also tells me that when people who've bought into Obama care actually start needing care of any substantial treatment, they're in for big surprises.
bad times ahead.

But, of course, the WH will be finally 'pushed' toward Single Payer because they messed us up so much. WIN/WIN for them, huh?
America will be so broke we won't know what hit us.

Viva Private insurance and Viva profit which helps us, hires us, and affords us the best health care available.

Kid said...

Z, this was all about single payer before it was even pen to paper. It is all about re-routing all those billions(trillions?) of HC insurance dollars through Washington DC so they can waste it and steal it while not providing health care.

You're right, the kids won't have a clue because it's going to to 20-40 years before they even need to see a doctor for any serious health care.

Rita said...

Every doctor I talked to last year, every one all were referring to how messed up this healthcare law is. My own doc is talking about retiring. Bob's spinal surgeon that removed the tumor in his spine, the foot surgeon I saw, the on/gym, all of them universally talked about how it was interfering with their ability to care for their patients.

And what WILL happen? Concierge service for those that can afford it. The best doctors that don't quit, will only service non-insured rich patients.

Exactly what happens in any socialized medicine country.

Liberalmann said...

Z said: "And, by the way...we have ALWAYS covered those ER visits; we're the 'deadbeats' who PAY for those who won't or can't."

...
Ah, no. Sorry. The ACA requires plans which significantly reduced costly emergency room visits to be picked up by taxpayers. That is the whole point.

But the right squawked about this 'you can keep your plan' BS that Obama relented and allowed them to keep their plans for another year or two.

Which mean we continue to pay the tab. Now I know how the right hates paying for others. So you're just gonna have to suck it up for a while.

Why did your plan go up? You should know. Did you use the exchanges?

Kid said...

Rita, well, beside stealing money, they need to cull the population right?

The jobs are gone. 91 million unemployed and not going to be anytime soon. Get rid of the senior class as soon as possible. But that's not the final solution. Many more will have to go. How will it happen?

Mustang has mentioned Logan's Run a couple times. I wonder if this was the primary thought.

Liberalmann said...

Rita said: "Exactly what happens in any socialized medicine country. "

...


Fox News much? Explain to me exaclty how ObamaCare is 'socialized medicine' especially since private insurance companies continue to make their billions.

Rita said...

Haven't you boarded your plane to Cuba yet, Lidnut? Make sure you look out the window to see the rafts making their way to Miami from Cuba because it's SOOOOO wonderful there.

Run along now.

Rita said...

Does anyone wonder if all liberals are complete clueless jerks or just the ones that visit Z's blog?

Ed Bonderenka said...

What did I say about fracking?
Bob covered the answer well, though.
And stewardship, as God gave to man, over the earth, and provision for family and the needy (a biblical concept when voluntary) insists on development of natural resources.

Kid said...

Rita, no, they're all morons. Evil little brats, where 4 year old's surpass them in an ability to think.

Kid said...

Rita, Actually everything is FANTASTICO in Cuba. It's the place to be right now. Endless opportunity. (wink)

Baysider said...

Great video! Well done and clear. Didn't know about the San Francisco libs trying to sneak control in Alabama. Who would guess?

PS. I pay about 100% more in health insurance costs than I did a year ago and get a lot less. All for a lot of things I don't need and don't want. So it pushes everyone onto the 'same page'- by government regulation and subsidies. And we all get less. What about that isn't the path to socialized medicine? Jeesh!

Z said...

Baysider...good question...what, indeed?!

Do you have a personal or a group plan?

If you have a group plan then you're full of it and have absolutely no idea how private insurance operates.

If you have a private plan then help campaign for single payer and get for profit insurers out of yo life.

Rita said...

Libkid. The joke is actually on you. If I have to, I can afford to pay my doc privately to get good health care. Unless you're a trust fund baby, you will not.

This is the medical care you are advocating.

Now tell me again how liberals are concerned about getting health care to the poor of this country. Everyone I knew that didn't have health insurance before this disaster does not have it today. No one.

Wanna know why? The people I knew without it are too lazy to get a job that provides it. And they were too lazy to spend anytime wading through healthcare.gov to get their Medicaid. They have been mooching off the ER visits and they will continue to do so.

JonBerg said...

"America's failures and decline under Obama isn't due to mistakes, or ignorance, or even due to his ineptness, it is planned."

Oh, how right you are! America's failures and decline are the result of mistakes, ignorance and the ineptness of the morons who put this reprobate in office, TWICE !!!!

Z said...

JonBerg...hi!
exactly right.... blame those who voted for this guy. ugh. You're so right.

Ducky, I laughed out loud at anybody telling Baysider she doesn't know about something; I know her well and you're so off base it's laughable. She can think circles around most everyone I know AND does her research before spending a nickel....be careful who you get smug and smarmy with; this time, you look the fool.

Rita...good job. You're right...illegals will still be using ERs, too.

Baysider said...

Z,
You're spot on correct. Thanks.
bay

Z said...

Bay, I was thinking it might be, since you ARE anonymous here, very enlightening to Ducky if you did tell your story about your insurance coverage struggle...rather detailed, the past situations, etc.
Nobody'd know who you are but maybe the truth would come out finally.
Leftwingers STILL think this plan's a good one. OR a good one to get us on the road to the financial ruination of single payer, anyway.

Liberalmann said...

Rita said: "Haven't you boarded your plane to Cuba yet, Lidnut? Make sure you look out the window to see the rafts making their way to Miami from Cuba because it's SOOOOO wonderful there."

....

Wow! Way to label yourself as another typically, cynical, wingnut hater! Riiiight, everyone (except you) is 'lazy.' Couldn't be the 24 States which refused to expand Medicare, could it? Get a clue. Millions are covered which were not covered before. Children are covered and no denial of coverage or dropped policies due to pre-existing conditions.

I will go you one better however, my heath care is free. For life. :-p...

Rita said...

People who refused to get a job are LAZY. These are NOT disabled or disadvantaged. I said the people I KNOW. I have a SIL who has claimed for years she couldn't work because of migraines.

I used to suffer miserable migraines, four days out of seven, very freaking week. I still worked. I HAD to.

All my SIL and the others I know like her had to do was apply, right? That was IT. It had nothing to do with what the state did or did not do. It's the little effort they had to do, but they wouldn't do it.

I've known too many people who would not pay for their own and their children's health insurance while paying for nice houses, new cars and premium cable.

I have never, not once ever considered going without health insurance.

Yes, there are some people that could not get insurance. So we "solve" that problem by spending a trillion dollars and raising prices for the middle class.

You are just so incredibly stupid that I don't know how you get up in the morning. Oh that's right, you don't. You mooch off the system and anyone else that is stupid enough to support you.

I have no problem helping to pay for healthcare for people who are truly disadvantaged. I DO have a problem that you are one of the moochers that get free healthcare.

Z said...

Liberalmann..it's not "FREE" ....apparently WE are paying for it. That's enough to make me gag.
I thought you'd be a freeloader; congratulations

Kid said...

Z, it's note even free for the freeloaders. When they take Medicaid because they 'qualify', and when they die over the age of 50, their estate will belong to the federales ! Somehow I think the suckers in DC will start winding the age 50 number too don't you.

I can't wait til liberman's 'heirs' come crying that the government took libtard's house trailer all of libtards' valuable beanie babies what was to be handed down to them. AHhahahahaaaaaaaaaa.

That part is gonna be fun.
