Intemperate Thoughts

Intemperate thoughts on issues of the day:

Liberal blogger calls for a strike!

“On September 3rd and 4th, two days before our Labor Day Weekend, Americans across this country should refuse to work, unless a universal health care bill is in place.”

My question: Should health care workers participate in this strike? I think they should. It will help lefties see what the waiting times will be like if ObamaCare is implemented.

John Conyers (D-Mich), Sees No Point In Reading The Health Care Bill.

“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

HA! This would be funny if it were a joke. Unfortunately, Conyers provides no evidence to suggest that he was joking.

1. I don't see the point in having a Congress if they're not going to read their own legislation.

2. If you need two lawyers, hire two lawyers. House members get a government expense allowance of $1.3 million to $1.9 million a year. Senators get $2.9 million to $4.5 million. You can afford to hire some help.

The Gay Marriage Slippery Slope Is Back

I think the slippery slope arguments are quite persuasive. Either society defines marriage narrowly (in the interest of strengthening and stabilizing the family), or marriage becomes some kind of god-awful chimera pieced together by various special interest groups.


The overwhelming majority of Americans who voted for Obama thought they were voting for a moderate Democrat. They did not think they were voting for the government to take over the auto industry, to commandeer the financial sector and to destroy private insurance. Wake up lefties, if you continue to overreach, you’re going to regret it.

August Recess

I've said this elsewhere, but it bears repeating. Please tell members of Congress, "If you plan to support ObamaCare, use your August recess to begin planning for a permanent return to your home district."


More on the wackjob science czar the MSM ignores

Join the nationwide Recess Rally (August 22) to make it known that we will not stand for socialized, gov controlled healthcare.

10% of the cost of healthcare is attributable to ambulance chasers. What can be done? Nothing, as long as BO is in charge.

To protect ObamaCare, Dems continue their assault on the First Amendment.

AG Holder caves in to ‘Shoe Bomber’ demands

K.I.S.S. is the cure for healthcare reform

From Gateway Pundit: Compared with other nations, health care costs are rising modestly in USA. Where's the crisis!

Love this convenient tool! Take out Obama's message, put in your own. Tweet Senators to defeat ObamaCare ➔

From what I've seen here in San Antonio, RK, they are the out of work crew anyway.

I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday to piss off the lefties by buying some American Spectator and the place was clogged full of hippies. Meanwhile Malkin's book is sold out here and on back order.

So, I say let them strike. There's like what....30 of them?

I would fire anyone who didn't show up to work those days in September for supporting a small-business killer.

The left is SO SCARED! Have you heard Obama rhetoric lately at Townhalls...he's saying things about Bush putting us in this shape and implying that not just totally accepting the whole overhaul means you don't CARE some people aren't insured, that obstructionism is typical of the Right..yadda yadda...
It's so dishonest. SO TYPICALLY CHicago thug elitism....$*(#@$*

blue: Agree. I suspect the strike will be a big flop.

JINGOIST: Thanks for stopping by.

CS: Proud member of the chattering class!

BB: The libs are inclined to bite the hand that employs them.

Z: I haven't seen Obama's townhall meetings, but desperation is definitely in the air.

A bill regulating something as important as health care requires careful reading and introspection.
It is unbelievable to me that they are admitting they haven't even read this boondoggle bill but are willing to vote for it. That alone is grounds for being voted out of office.

cube: Quite right. It's legislative malpractice.
