SNAFU.  

I’ve got a bilateral eye injury.  The water hose sprinkler got me in the face at full stream in both eyes – at a distance of about two feet.  Ouch, how stupid?  Can’t see so well to read or type, and everyone else is unavailable.

Since it is August and Congress is on a vacation, I’m taking a break too.  I think I’ll jump through a sprinkler as opposed to shooting myself with one!  Stupid is as stupid does.  Be back shortly!

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the House Health Care bill would cost $894 billion over 10 years and extend insurance coverage to 36 million, covering 96 percent of Americans. It is expected to cut the deficit by $30 billion in the first 10 years according to Organizing for America http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/CloeAxelson/gGMy2r

This morning, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will unveil(ed)  the re-tooled Affordable Health Care for America Act (HR 3962). (Read the bill HERE.) with props to http://wonkroom.thinkprogress.org/2009/10/29/details-house/ who notes that the legislation on the floor next week, with a final vote before “Veterans Day,” November 11th. At the moment, “House Democrats do not have firm commitment from enough lawmakers to guarantee passage of their bill.” One whip count has shown 23 centrist Democrats intend to vote against any health bill. Assuming that all Republicans vote against it, the bill can lose at least 38 Democrats and still pass the chamber.

From The Republican address on health care, delivered by Dr. Charles Boustany (R-LA) following President Obama’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress-

I read the bill Democrats passed through committee in July. It creates 53 new government bureaucracies, adds hundreds of billions to our national debt, and raises taxes on job-creators by $600 billion. And, it cuts Medicare by $500 billion, while doing virtually nothing to make the program better for our seniors.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkbZByZCvKU

Pretty lame that you have to dig through the site for the last health care republican response while Harry Reid, a democrat is right on the ball and front and center at in a new Web video posted Thursday, making the case for a public health insurance option and appeals to voters across the country to contact Washington to “push hard” for its inclusion in the final bill.   Read more at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/29/reid-calls-on-americans-c_n_339054.html.  If nothing else, Democrats have mastered the use of the Internet and every social bookmarking site in existence while with the exception of a few individuals GOP Republicans most certainly are lazy and inept.

The GOP Solutions for Healthcare’s  homepage at http://www.gop.gov/solutions/healthcare hasn’t been updated since Summer- barring a few links at the bottom and following Twitter Accounts from John Boehner at http://twitter.com/GOPLeader  where he offers:

10 Facts Every American Should Know About Speaker Pelosi’s 1,990-Page Gov’t Takeover of Health Care http://gopleader.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=152063

“I’m asking you to believe,  Not just in my ability, to bring about real change in Washington…I am asking you to believe in yours,”  President Barack Obama.  We are coming to believe President Obama’s changes are critical to future of America and her sovereignty and we are not alone-

The narrative of a President who is too pliable has been growing in volume since the summer, much to the chagrin of the White House. Nor is it coming only from the right. There are those on the left who feel let down by Obama and are infuriated by his “political pragmatism”. They object, for instance, when he refuses to push aggressively for the so-called “public option” to compete with private insurers in a new health care system, or when he declines to meet with the Dalai Lama in Washington because his agenda with China is more important to him. They even don’t like it when he brushes off a member of Congress openly calling him a liar as being unimportant.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/obama-twelve-months-on-the-star-falls-back-to-earth-1811148.html

 absolute bullshit

In true transparency of government Politico points out the contents of the bill with text like – 

“(a) Outpatient Hospitals – (1) In General – Section 1833(t)(3)(C)(iv) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395(t)(3)(C)(iv)) is amended – (A) in the first sentence – (i) by inserting “(which is subject to the productivity adjustment described in subclause (II) of such section)” after “1886(b)(3)(B)(iii); and (ii) by inserting “(but not below 0)” after “reduced”; and (B) in the second sentence, by inserting “and which is subject, beginning with 2010 to the productivity adjustment described in section 1886(b)(3)(B)(iii)(II)”.

Republican Rep. Joe Barton, who is Texan, said the bill is “about four reams of paper” that add up to the American public “getting reamed.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1009/28904.html

Adding more wasted taxpayer dollars- the U.S. has spent $1.5 billion for the 250 million swine flu vaccines that the government has ordered so far and will be distributing free to doctors, pharmacies and schools. In addition, Congress has set aside more than $10 billion this year to research flu viruses, monitor H1N1’s progress and educate the public about prevention. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/big-business-swine-flu/Story?id=8820642&page=1  Hopefully with good intention, the program has resulted in the fact most 1 out of 5 children have already had H1N1 Swine and the vast majority of vaccines will not be available until after the Swine Flu Season has peaked- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/28/swine-flu-vaccines-unused-government-healthcare-wakeup-call/

Where are Joe Wilson and James Traficant when you need them? https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/joe-wilson-apology-fingers-crossed/  “You Lie ” and “Beam me up,” come to mind as this reform bill comes from the depths of  hell for small business, taxpayers and patients.

Joe Wilson

Due to exceptionally high traffic, this site is temporarily unavailable.  Please come back shortly.  http://www.joewilson.house.gov/ 

Joe Wilson who yelled, “You Lie” during the President’s speech last night has been so overwhelmed his website has gone off line!  .gov bites the dust when the going gets tough. 

The president was greeted by booming applause from Democrats and polite handshakes from Republicans. But the political challenge at hand soon became clear as several Republican lawmakers heckled Mr. Obama when he dismissed the notion that so-called death panels would deny care to the elderly.

“It is a lie, plain and simple,” Mr. Obama declared.

“You lie!” Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina yelled back after Mr. Obama said it was not true that the Democrats were proposing to provide health coverage to illegal immigrants. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/10/us/politics/10obama.html?_r=1&hp

Wilson’s outburst was probably not planned, but an out pouring of emotion and affront to his intelligence.  How long could anyone sit there and listen to well,…lies with out having a comment of some sort of another?  I can not repeat here the words I was thinking while watching this-

For Wilson of South Carolina- enough was enough at about the half way point in the lecture.  He could restrain himself no more.

Senator John McCain felt that Wilson should apologize.  I feel maybe Obama should apologize for stating directives that can never be paid for the way he intends to.  

Wilson was the bigger man although I am not sure I would have- saying, “While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable, I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”  I just know he had his fingers crossed behind his back as he made the statement.  I might move to South Carolina just so I can vote for Wilson.  Seems like a nice place and they’ve got great beaches and fishing.

It’s about time someone in politics took a stand.  Former Congressman Traficant who was just released from prison might have said something like, “Beam me up, Scotty-who knew there was a politician left who had balls enough to speak the truth?”

Jim Traficant Free From Jail, Free To Speak Out

Former Congressman Jim Traficant of Ohio is free to speak out about the government once again, having never issued any statements from prison.  Traficant served 17 years in Congress.  In July of 2002 he  received an eight year prison sentence after being convicted of racketeering, bribery, obstruction of justice and tax evasion. The House, using the trial transcript, expelled him.

Traficant refused to apply for clemency or a reduction in his sentence, saying that to do so would force him to admit his guilt and apologize for his crimes.  He says he did not commit any crimes, so he would not admit to them and was not going to apologize for something he says he did not do.  He did not want his family to see him in prison and he and his wife, Tish went 7 years without seeing each other.

Traficant is famous for his unique one minute “beam me up” speeches, many listed here at http://www.thememoryhole.org/traficant/ Now a private citizen on probation, Traficant has already began speaking out about the government and what he thinks needs to be fixed at a sold out, welcome home appreciation party held Sunday, September 6, 2009 in his hometown of The Mahoning Valley-Youngstown, Ohio.

Traficant is scheduled to be on Fox News’  On the Record at 10 p.m. ET Thursday, September 10, 2009, hosted by Greta Van Susteren.  

As you know, we went to Ohio today to interview former Congressman Jim Traficant.  He got out of prison about a week ago and gave us a long interview today (you will see tomorrow night on ON THE RECORD at 10pm.) What was rather interesting was how many people went up to Traficant and hugged him and thanked him.  I pulled out my camera to grab some of the citizen meetings for you so that you can see for yourself:  http://gretawire.blogs.foxnews.com/2009/09/09/sneak-peek-jim-traficant/?action=late-new&order=asc.  His hair still appears to have its trademarked weed whacker look in this photo-

Traficant’s more famous speech, “The Bankruptcy of the United States” delivered on the floor of Congress in 1993 proclaimed:

“The United States Federal government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, declared by President Roosevelt. The receivers of the United States bankruptcy are the International bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States offices, officials and departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War powers. This new form of government is known as a Democracy (instead of a Republic), being an established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek_3X2ONCx0&feature=related 

THE SELL-OUT OF AMERICA
May 2, 2001- Congressional Record, Congressman Traficant
“Mr. Speaker, the Great Lakes are now open. The first foreign ship to dock in Cleveland, Ohio, carried 10,000 tons of steel from Russia. While mills are closing in Cleveland, Youngstown, and Pittsburgh, steel mills are closing all over America. Ten thousand tons of illegally dumped steel just came in to America. Unbelievable.  Think about it. It is getting so bad the Army almost bought, without Congress’ interference, black berets for the Army from China. Beam me up. If our trade program is so good, why does Europe not do it? Why does Japan not do it? Why does China not do it?  I think it is time to put things in order in America, my colleagues. Enough is enough. I yield back the sell-out of America, wholesale, to Communist dictators, and the loss of jobs to these socialist, communist countries.

BUYING OUR WAY INTO BANKRUPTCY
February 7, 2001- Congressional Record, Congressman Traficant
Mr. Speaker, the trade deficit is at $10 billion a week, $40 billion a month, a half trillion dollars a year. Unbelievable. Japan continues to take $60 billion out of our economy a year, and China is now taking over $100 billion a year out of America, and both Japan and China continue to keep American products out.  Now, if that is not enough to neuter your dragon, China has missiles pointed at us.  Beam me up. A Nation that buys more than they sell will go bankrupt, and a Nation that allows illegal trade destroys all American industry. I yield back the bankruptcy of America’s steel industry. Day after day the filings continue to mount up.

BRING SOME COMMON SENSE TO FOREIGN RELATIONS
November 5, 1997- Congressional Record, Congressman Jim Traficant
Mr. Speaker, see if this makes sense. America gives billions of foreign aid to Russia; Russia then takes American cash and builds new weapons; Russia then offers to sell the old weapons to Iran. America trying to keep nuclear technology from Iran, and they buy the old weapons from Russia. Russia then asks America for more foreign aid. America trying to keep the Marx brothers out of Russia, and I do not mean Groucho, give Russia more foreign aid. After all this, the State Department labels the National Council Resistance, the opposition party in Iran, fighting for democracy, trying to throw those bums out. They label them a terrorist group.  Unbelievable. How dumb can Uncle Sam be? Let us tell it like it is. Those Russian nuclear scientists are not hanging around Iran to watch belly dancers. What is next? Will the Pentagon lease Tehran?
Beam me up, Mr. Speaker. With a foreign policy like this, I do not know how we still have our sovereignty.

While Ron Paul and others might be a fan of his, the federal authorities are not.  Traficant says, “I was a target of the administration…I have been targeted.”  One must wonder if he is still a target.

In a parody of the song, The Candy Man Can from Sammy Davis Jr., funny man Tim Hawkins has brilliantly assembled political lyrics in his latest video, The Government Can. http://www.timhawkins.net/

If YouTube gives awards like the Oscar’s or Grammys, this is sure to be nominated by members of  all political parties who are disgruntled with the current spending trends and debts. 

The National Debt Clock is ticking higher to an average of $3.89 billion per day since September 28, 2007. http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/  and here it it broken down into categories http://www.usdebtclock.org/ including the per citizen debt of $38,000.

Congress will be forced to raise the legal limit on the nation’s debt later this year as the amount the government may borrow from the public, (that’d be us people who actually pay taxes unlike Timothy Geithner our Treasury Secretary) including foreign creditors, is limited by law to $12.1 trillion.  Today’s debt clock is $11 trillion give or take.

The Congressional Budget Office projects President Obama’s policies will require an additional $9 trillion in borrowing over the next decade.http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/102xx/doc10296/06-16-AnalysisPresBudget_forWeb.pdf  has the President’s Budget Proposals for FY 2010. ” 

Under the President’s policies, the deficit in 2009 would total $1.8 trillion and equal 13.0 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), CBO estimates. The deficit in 2009 would be $157 billion higher than what is expected to occur under current law—primarily because of  additional spending for the government’s actions to stabilize financial markets and for ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Oprah, a huge Obama supporter has a few ideas of her own to help reduce debt saying- “While the market plunges, free-floating anxiety is rising. If exercise and meditation aren’t your thing, here are a few other strategies you may not have considered.” http://www.oprah.com/subtopic/money/debt  Maybe someone from government should simply take a look at suggestion number 4- Stop Spending.

Congress has left the building and I am going with them.   In my email inbox today a letter from Mitch Stewart, Director Organizing for America:

“All throughout August, our members of Congress are back in town. Insurance companies and partisan attack groups are stirring up fear with false rumors about the President’s plan, and it’s extremely important that folks like you speak up now….Earlier this week, the President wrote that “this is the moment our movement was built for” and asked us all to commit to join at least one event this month.” http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/obamaforamerica/gGMPmC

“Our movement?”  How about a movement toward socialism? 

Already a public relations nightmare, the Administration is asking you to report blog and web sites that disagree with Obama’s health care reform.  Taking names, logging IP’s, creating a data base of people’s opinions that are against the elected? https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/08/05/white-house-informant-report-fishy-things-on-health-care/

Throw in President Obama saying,  “I don’t think we’re going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There’s going to be, potentially, some transition process: I can envision a decade out, or 15 years out, or 20 years out, ” and the movement is getting clearer.

“In an egalitarian society, lawmakers do not exploit their office to vote themselves lavish perks but live much like the people they represent. Congress should get the same health coverage enjoyed — can that be the right verb? — by a typical American. writes http://ethicist.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/03/too-much-vacation-for-congress/

What’s clear to me is that if Congress gets 4 weeks vacation, I can have a few days with the computer turned off to enjoy summers waning days.

Change you can believe in?

H. J. Res. 5 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=hj111-5  is a proposed amendment to repeal the term limits for presidents and introduced Jan.6, 2009 by Democrat Serrano.    http://serrano.house.gov/Biography.aspx  U.S. Representative José E. Serrano represents the 16th Congressional District of New York – the Bronx.  He is the only Congressman from New York City on the exclusive House Appropriations Committee and is serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government.

From his bio, “Serrano believes that government should work to ensure that the prosperity of our country is shared by the neediest and most vulnerable members of our society- the poor, the elderly, the disabled, and children- in the form of participation in government, educational opportunities, access to housing and affordable health care. ” 

Golly Gee, sounds just like socialistic rhetoric from Obama.   More participation in government?  Howza bout enforcing laws on the books?  Laws that would have alleviated the disastrous economic declines of Freddie, Fannie, etc.?  Laws that were already in place to prevent the Madoff ponzi?  Laws that discourage capitalism and instead form a reliance on the government to solve the individual woes?  Honest effort and pride in accomplishment used to be a winning formula.

At a time in this country when we have an incoming president who has faulted the Constitution more than once,  here we have an elected official with a significant amount of clout introducing on the first day of Congress a bill to change our Constitution and allow for a President to serve pretty much without time limits, “Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.” 

 He also introduced a total of 16 other Resolutions – http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/R?d111:FLD003:@1(rep%20serrano): from ending the trade embargo with Cuba, allowing Cuban baseball players waivers to play professional baseball in the US, to changes title XIX of the Social Security Act, to something he coins as the “English Plus Resolution”-H.CON.RES.3   English Plus has emerged as the main policy alternative and rallying cry for those opposed to the English Only campaign. http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/JWCRAWFORD/engplus.htm Back in 2001, Serrano introduced HCON 9 IH, http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/JWCRAWFORD/HCR9.htm s similar measure that would seemingly mandate a foreign language.  It was not passed.

“English Plus” resolutions have been passed in the U.S. states of New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Washington.  Ironically, English Plus has not been passed in the Congressman’s home state of New York.  I wonder what language would be proposed?  Arabic? Mandarin?  Any of the countries who might be perceived as a military threat? 

For heaven’s sake if he wants to remove a language barrier, how about starting with educating the military.  Imagine these poor soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq who were never trained in a fundamental intelligence operation like being able to speak the enemy language.  “I surrender, What? What did you say? Oh, you’ve got a gun, bang.”  

We have American combat troops stationed right here on our soil, and I am pretty happy that they speak English and able to defend us.  In fact, I wish there were more protecting our borders.

The leader of the free world, President Obama clearly views the Constitution as an obstacle to “political and economic justice in this society.”   The Constitution has served Mr. Obama well, and rather conveniently somehow allowed him to avoid providing proof that he meets the requirements of the natural-born citizen clause, Article II, Section 1, for eligibility as President.   Every case to date and under the interpreted laws of the land, all the way up to the Supreme Court, he has avoided providing any documentation of his birth.

The Constitution and law has been circumnavigated more than once by Presidents.  Minuscule on the scale are little Orders like-” All executive branch departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty on Friday, December 26, 2008, the day after Christmas Day”  http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2008/12/20081212-2.html to some pretty hefty changes in a Presidents authority can be found here  http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/orders/.  I wonder if our tax dollars paid them for the day off? 

In tracking the Obama Presidency, apparently BHO is going to repeal some of them including an attempt to close Gitmo.  http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2009/01/61265288/1

We had all better become better informed as to what our elected officials are doing, what laws they are proposing, and what laws they choose to enforce.  We can’t rely on MSM and let’s face it, often times watching C-SPAN is like watching paint dry.  Whatever language we speak, everyone here in America, even the illegals get certain rights afforded to them. It is everyones right, privilege and obligation to see that things aren’t just snuck through the cracks when it becomes convenient. 

The Constitution was designed for America.  It is your Constitution-  our Constitution, yet today multilateral institutions like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund are privatizing economies and restructuring the social policies of  the world- including America and certainly influencing our Constitutional law. 

Our Constitution should not be bent or amended so much so, that we are lost in the New World Order we hear so often about.  Our Constitution should not be amended to allow for a President to serve indefinitely, even if he is “The One,” his campaign promise stood on. 

Press 1 for English, press 2…..

God Bless America.
