Dark Comedy At The Capitol

I was listening to Senate Democrats on C-Span radio this morning. The same people who spent the last three weeks refusing to allow a vote on Homeland Security funding, were attacking House Republicans for not allowing a vote on Homeland Security funding. They ranted about how critical all the DHS functions were – the same ones they refused to fund 48 hours ago.

Meanwhile the Republican leadership folded like they do 100% of the time, and handed the dictator another easy victory in his march towards destroying the republic.

    That sounds like two children, both misbehaving, both knowing they are going to eventually get caught, but their goal is not to behave right, instead their goal is to try to make it look like the fault of the other one when they finally are caught.

        This is the new NSA (National Security Agency) facility in Utah. It is built to house evrery phone call, text message, email, etc…


        Everyone has skeletons in the closet, and the current administration has unprecedented information on everyone’s secrets. Step out of line and your career or family or marriage or reputation or all of the above are ruined.

        And here we thought the Soviet Union collapsed.

          World War II is over. The Nazis won.

          Years ago, when I heard that one of the head people of the East German STASI, Markus Wolf, had been hired as a consultant to US Homeland Security, I knew that we had gone over the edge of the cliff.

        • gator69 says:

          A senior official from the U.S. Department of State was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly soliciting sex from a minor, reports said. Daniel Rosen, who was in charge of federal counterterrorism programs, was arrested from his house in Washington, D.C. at noon, and was transported to a local jail Tuesday.

          Rosen was charged with one count of use of a communications device to solicit a juvenile, according to Fox News, which added that it was not clear whether he was still incarcerated or had posted bail. The detective, a female officer working at the Child Exploitation Unit in Fairfax County in the state of Virginia, reportedly posed as the minor in online exchanges with the 44-year-old Rosen.


          Scuttlebutt is that the State Department and White House knew this guy was a scumbag, and kept him on the payroll. Why you ask? Because he was unquestionably loyal, given the info his employer had.

          Scumbags covering for and blackmailing each other. That’s what democracy looks like.

        • Gail Combs says:

          It is not just the USA…
          Stasi-style secret police system forming in Canada, Britain, US

          …Jennifer Stoddart, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, has given her own Valentine to Canadian citizens: a 48-page report warning them that the RCMP (Canada’s national police force) is keeping thousands of files on regular citizens in secret databases which cannot be seen by the accused. The news is perhaps unsurprising, given that the McDonald Commission reported in 1981 that the RCMP had been involved in all manner of illegal activity in their attempts to spy on Canadian citizens, including breaking into citizens’ homes without warrants and even conducting electronic surveillance of a member of Parliament….

          The historical parallels to the Stasi should be obvious. The Stasi were the dreaded secret police of East Germany, who had one out of every seven citizens of the country working for them as secret informants. What is perhaps most surprising is that the US Department of Homeland Security hired the ex-Stasi chief and engineer of the Stasi police state as a consultant in 2004, shortly before they brought in a program known as Highway Watch, which has spent millions of dollars teaching tens of thousands of long distance truckers how to spot terrorists on the road. The hiring of the ex-chief of the Stasi to consult for Homeland Security also coincided with a 2004 White House push to recruit over 15,000 citizen informants to help counterterrorism investigations…and all this effort despite the fact that terrorist-related cases account for less than 0.01 percent of all Homeland Security investigations. Markus Wolf (now deceased) and his Stasi shadow loom large over the Homeland Security Department he helped shape.

          Look for the number of false accusations from anonymous citizen informants to increase under the watchful eye of these government paranoia programs.

          All those new flashy, blinkie bulbs and they still cannot find a Russian hacker and need our help.
          The FBI and the State Department announced a record $3 million reward Tuesday for information leading to the arrest of a Russian accused of executing a sophisticated computer heist that siphoned more than $100 million from American bank accounts.

          Good to see they got the fires out.

    The Republic, the Old Republic, has been dead a long while. The Civil War, the 17th Amendment, the misreading / misuse in the 20th century of the 14th Amendment, the “New Deal”, etc.

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey Don! Yeah… you are right. The Old Republic is gone, and I miss it. The only way to move our culture back toward the ideas of freedom and natural rights is to first face the facts and understand WHY the Old Republic is gone. I am optimistic long term, but right now, I think more people prefer serfdom than freedom. Soon-to-come experience may be a harsh teacher for the masses.

  4. phodges says:

    LOL. That’s because they all work for the same employers…the bankers and MIC…well the MIC is owned by the bankers anyways. Just theater to keep us arguing.


  5. Jason Calley says:

    “Meanwhile the Republican leadership folded like they do 100% of the time, and handed the dictator another easy victory in his march towards destroying the republic.”

    At the risk of repeating myself — there are essentially NO real Republican politicians. There are only RINOs, Republicans In Name Only. They give great speeches and say all the good things we support, but they do not do them once in office. Remember the Charlie Brown comic strip? Remember how Lucy would hold the football for Charlie Brown but always pull it out of the way? “But Charlie Brown, I really, really, REALLY mean it this time! I WON’T pull the ball away! Trust me just this one more time and I will prove that I am telling the truth!” Call ’em RINOs, call ’em Lucys. If you voted Republican you voted like Charlie Brown.

    If voting would fix things, we would not be allowed to vote. Seriously, I know you have heard that before, and it is a great cliche and all, but it is true. The game is rigged big time. If it was possible to un-rig the game by voting, there would be a house rule against it. We need to find a solution — a solution that WORKS. I am still looking for one, but voting is not it.

    • Gail Combs says:

      William R. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft work.

      The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

      Willing Accomplices: How KGB Covert Influence Agents Created Political Correctness and Destroyed America by Kent Clizbe

      I am afraid we are caught in a pincer movement. If we do nothing Agenda 21/Communism is implemented gradually. If we try to protest the Anti-Occupy Law kicks in and you go to jail for a year, ten if you are carrying a ‘dangerous weapon’ (like a pocket knife or protest sign?)

      If they provoke the inner cities into riots (No electric + heat = RIOTS) then it is martial law. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

      • Jason Calley says:

        Thieves and psychopaths only respect power. The big question (to me at least) is whether we will be able to find a way to express power other than through violence and coercion. How do you persuade a group to give up power and control when they are addicted to power and control?

  6. Mike D says:

    I now completely understand why people stayed home in 2012. What’s the point of wasting time voting if the Republicans won’t do anything, even with the largest legislative majority since the late 1920’s. No one, other than the media, even cares about the government shutdown from over a year ago. It had zero effect on the election, but for whatever stupid reason, the Republicans care about “getting blamed”. As if it will affect an election 1 1/2 years away. I thought the last 3 elections where many of the Bush era Republicans got booted would have sent the message. Instead, the money does talk, or else Jeb wouldn’t even be a story.

  7. au1corsair says:

    What? President Obama doesn’t have the moxie to stand up in front of Congress and demand that the Republicans pass the Obama budget as it stands with NO changes–or else…

    Why not?

    Besides, with pervasive surveillance, who says that the evidence is genuine? Or that it was picked up in accordance with laws? Or that it wasn’t really someone else’s crime pinned on a political enemy?

    It is estimated that the average American commits a minimum of three felonies EVERY DAY. A large fraction of the people in prison were convicted of crimes that they didn’t commit–because the justice system has no stake in justice, just in gaining convictions. It isn’t if you are guilty or innocent–it’s how much trouble the prosecutor will have getting a guilty verdict out of a jury.

    So tell me that President Obama hasn’t the capability of ignoring the law that prohibits arresting members of Congress while Congress is in session and putting them through a show trial that proves that all the Republicans are felons? Most people are convinced that Congress is a viper’s nest already. All it will take is a strangle-hold on the courts.

    Fortunately, Barrack Obama isn’t a Lenin, or a Hitler, or a Mussolini. I’ll bet that Barrack Obama is a poor poker player, too–bluffs easily.

  8. au1corsair says:

    The situation Tony described of the Democrats refusing to fund DHS reminds me of how the Democrats were the cheerleaders for invading Iraq in 2003–and leading Democrats were denouncing anybody not for invading Iraq immediately as a traitor! Of course the Democrats were all for a Department of Homeland Security–a product of the Nineties that wasn’t whipped up overnight in the shadow of 9/11!

    What’s next on the CSPAN comedy network?

  9. Gail Combs says:

    It seems the grab for our freedoms is never ending: Obama administration to ban bullets; AR-15 targeted

    The target this time is the most popular sporting and target shooting rifles sold in America; the AR-15.The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is proposing a ban on the most popular ammunition for the AR-15, trying to backdoor Congress again on gun control

    • au1corsair says:

      Gail Combs, it ain’t that simple: http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/ammoban.asp

      Saint Ronald Reagan signed the “federal cop killer bullet ban” into law and it took effect during 1986. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=federal+cop+killer+bullet+ban

      The Treasury Department is simply redefining “handgun” as is its right under that law. Note that the machine gun “ban” of 1934 was intended to outlaw pistols and revolvers–but FDR’s attorney general managed to make enemies out of the “gun lobby.” The National Rifle Association had written the plan to register all legal handguns in America and to limit handgun ownership to only those Americans who had a federally-issued handgun permit. Today we see history repeated–the real reason to eliminate “assault weapons (aka battlefield weapons)” is that when semiautomatic actions are outlawed, revolvers can be outlawed as “semiautomatic assault guns” too. The reason to ban the AR-15 is that is an excuse to ban all handguns, too. It didn’t work in 1934, in 1938, in 1968, or in 1986–it might work now because the subject is complex and us peasants are uneducated hicks.

      This uneducated hick recalls that the M855 service cartridge was specifically exempted from the “handgun bullet ban” because nothing shoots like the M855, which is required ammunition in some service rifle matches.

      How does it feel being treated like a Treaty Indian?

      • Gail Combs says:

        After the reading I have done this week, I feel more like a serf. A used up unwanted one they have plans to kill now that I am no longer working for them.

        • au1corsair says:

          If you want to develop insomnia, consider this: a quarter of the US population is age 55 and older. Killing off this quarter will reduce US carbon emissions by an estimated 70% (because geezers own much of the pollution-producing wealth–the “means of production”) and when these double-nickel-plus oldsters are eliminated, their property can be seized by the state. Old people are regarded as non-productive, useless eaters, who steal jobs that younger workers need–especially undocumented younger workers.

          Just sayin’ that these senior citizens can be regarded as planet-raping terrorists and dealt with accordingly. Getting the rest of the nation lined up to off their parents and grandparents isn’t a done deal yet…

        • Gail Combs says:

          As I said an unwanted used-up serf. We are nothing but free-range serfs even if we do not know it. Between taxes and debt we have 60 and 90 percent of our wealth confiscated by the government or banks (same thing) Never forget the 151 hidden taxes on a loaf of bread — Ronald Reagan.
          That means NO ONE escapes taxes even if they are beggars or thieves. Medieval serfs got to keep about 60% of what they produced. Are we any more free than they were?

          The Fabians in the UK have been offing the over 55 population for a while now. Why is it no matter where you look you find Socialsts/Marxists practice DEMOCIDE: Death by Government whenever they get complete control of a country?

          The news stories started out like this:

          Nearly 1,200 people have starved to death in NHS hospitals because ‘nurses are too busy to feed patients’
          For every patient who dies from malnutrition, four more have dehydration mentioned on their death certificate
          … (wwwDOT)dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2287332/Nearly-1-200-people-starved-death-NHS-hospitals-nurses-busy-feed-patients.html

          And this

          Four patients die thirsty or starving EVERY DAY on our hospital wards show damning new statistics
          Data shows 1,316 deaths were linked to or directly caused by dehydration and malnutrition in 2010
          Figures are far higher than in 2000, when 862 deaths were recorded
          One hospital forced to prescribe drinking water for its patients

          The telegraph reports:

          the NHS comes first in Europe when it comes to the percentage of hospital patients suffering malnutrition: a whopping 58%, compared to 24% in the Netherlands and just over 30% in Denmark.

          The comments in the last article give life to the horrific conditions in the UK hospitals.

          Note how the nurses are blamed and doctors are “forced to prescribe drinking water” — Yeah, right.

          Then one doctor lets the cat out of the bag. The cause of death is deliberate withholding of food and water (The Liverpool Care Pathway) and not ‘neglect’ by the nurses… OOPS
          Top doctor’s chilling claim: The NHS kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year: Professor says doctors use ‘death pathway’ to euthenasia the elderly

          Around 29 per cent of patients that die in hospital are on controversial ‘care pathway’

          Then as investigative journalists dig deeper it is found that it is not the Doctors but the GOVERNMENT that is the cause of the deliberate starvation and dehydration of there citizens. NHS millions for controversial care pathway
          The majority of NHS hospitals in England are being given financial rewards for placing terminally-ill patients on a controversial “pathway” to death,

          TheGovernment PAYS hospitals to starve the patients to death. They also use the Liverpool Care Pathway on infants and children they deem ‘useless’ Doctors now have Saturday and Sunday off so if you are admitted on a weekend chances are you will be stuck on the Liverpool Care Pathway. Also the UK Govenment is suggesting they need to ‘Check-up” on older folk… so they can toss them in the hospital and starve them to death no doubt.

          Think that is bad? It gets worse.

          Now they are calling for After birth Abortions

          Ethicists call for killing of newborns to be made legal
          by Madeleine Teahan
          posted Wednesday, 29 Feb 2012
          Professors from Milan and Oxford argue that ‘foetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons’
          A leading British medical journal has published an article calling for the introduction of infanticide for social and medical reasons.

          The article in the Journal of Medical Ethics, entitled “After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” states in its abstract: “After-birth abortion (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.”

          And the people in the USA were told this was the healthcare system that was so much better that what we had!?!?!


        • Gail Combs says:

          Speaking of Gruber, Obamacare is all about removing medical care FROM the elderly and giving it TO the illegals.
          If You Like Your Medicare, You Can Keep Your Medicare By Jane M. Orient, M.D.

          …You can drop Medicare Part B, though there is a penalty for getting back in. But to drop Medicare Part A, you have to give back all the Social Security payments you ever received, as well as forgoing future payments. [MAJOR STICK to beat you into submission.]

          Medicare rules are forcing many independent physicians to give up their practice, and either retire early or become employees. Physicians who do remain in practice may not accept Medicare patients, or limit the number they see. If you are a Medicare patient, the entire Medicare regime is in the examining room or hospital room with you, like it or not. You are not allowed to be free for a day. Neither is the doctor….

          Medicare is also making it increasingly difficult for Medicare patients to get tests, consultations, oxygen or other home-health items, or medications prescribed by a non-Medicare doctor, sometimes even if the patient is willing to pay privately.

          Why should this be?

          Keep in mind that Medicare is not yours. The money you paid in all your working life is long gone. Your benefits are coming out of the wages of people like Larry, John, and Jesus, who toil at Arnold’s gas station, and all of them are having a hard time these days. Now that payroll tax receipts are less than payouts, benefits are coming out of general tax revenues, which redeem the IOUs in the “Trust Fund.” And the ever-increasing Part B premiums pay only 25 percent of benefits. If you are on Medicare, you are a liability—to your doctor and to society.

          Medicare does offer some fine new “benefits”—such as paying for “end-of-life” counseling.

          Medicare counseling, however, is not about life insurance, wills, or funeral arrangements—or about making peace with your family or God. It’s about reducing the cost of your care. The most expedient way to do that is to use “end” as a verb.

          These days you can no longer assume that a hospital will seek to prolong your life and restore you to the health you enjoyed before you fell ill. It is much easier for the hospital if you give them permission ahead of time not to try. The purpose of the “advance directive” is to decline “life-sustaining treatments”—such as food and water.

          GEE, where have we heard ending life by removing “life-sustaining treatments”—such as food and water. Oh yah, It is called the Liverpool CARE Pathway.

          And the killing off of unwanted infants? All of this is in line with Fabian thinking and their method of implementing their vision of the world gradually. The idea is to make government murder of the noncompliant acceptable to the rest of the public.

          “The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”
          Source: George Bernard Shaw, Prefaces (London: Constable
          and Co., 1934), p. 296.

          So the ultimate goal is to get society to accept the killing off of those unwilling to be the slaves of the Elite government.

          So what about After Birth Abortion? Where does that fit into the ultimate goals of the Fabian Elite? In the USA they are going even further.

          TRENDING: More college students support post-birth abortion
          Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”

          “We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

          Campuses where the high school, college students, local activists and staff members of Created Equal have encountered this opinion include Purdue, University of Minnesota, and University of Central Florida. And at Ohio State earlier this year, the group captured a debate on video between one of its members and an older woman on campus who defended infanticide.

          “This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans…

          ….Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

          “A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds….


          “This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans… That of course is the whole idea. It leads straight back to Shaw, the Fabians and OBAMA’s science czar Holdren. Holdern and the Ehrlichs also say a newborn child “will ultimately develop into a human being” if properly fed and socialized.

          “The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being,” page 235, chapter 8 of the book titled “Population Limitation.”

          This is the SAME nut case that said TREES should have standing in court to sue!

          Giving “natural objects” — like trees — standing to sue in a court of law would have a “most salubrious” effect on the environment, Holdren wrote the 1970s. “One change in (legal) notions that would have a most salubrious effect on the quality of the environment has been proposed by law professor Christopher D. Stone in his celebrated monograph, ‘Should Trees Have Standing?’” Holdren said in a 1977 book that he co-wrote with Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich. “In that tightly reasoned essay, Stone points out the obvious advantages of giving natural objects standing, just as such inanimate objects as corporations, trusts, and ships are now held to have legal rights and duties,” Holdren added.

          So Holdren thinks trees are more valuable than human infants… OK, right, thanks for letting us know that.

          So what about Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood? What we her views on infants?

          Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.” ….(wwwDOT)thecollegefix.com/post/19896/

          Same general contempt for human life.

          With Sanger we again come right back to the Fabians.

          “Margaret’s English exile gave her the opportunity to make some critical interpersonal connections as well. Her bed became a veritable meeting place for the Fabian upper crust: H. G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Arnold Bennett, Arbuthnot Lane, and Norman Haire. And of course, it was then that she began her unusual and tempestuous affair with Havelock Ellis. Ellis was the iconoclastic grandfather of the Bohemian sexual revolution…he had provided the free love movement with much of its intellectual apologia.”

          Her views on Blacks are interesting.

          On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
          “…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

          On the extermination of blacks:
          “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon

          …abortion has been numbered among the liberal causes of modern politics. Abortion is identified with women’s rights just as the Civil Rights Movement was identified with equal rights for African Americans and other minorities. But is abortion really a liberal cause?…

          The modern day abortion rights movement began as the American Birth Control League in 1921. Among its founding board members were Margaret Sanger, Lothrup Stoddard, and C. C. Little. The latter two people were known for their racist views, but Margaret Sanger continually shows up in the company of other racists. In fact, she was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, N. J. in 1926.[1] Not only did she not disassociate herself from these racist views, her own writings leave little doubt as to her sympathies. In implementing a plan called the “Negro Project,” that was designed to sterilize Blacks and reduce the number of Black children being born in the south, Sanger wrote:

          “[We propose to] hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. And we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” [2]

          Sanger also viewed welfare as a detriment to society because it increased the number of poor blacks and foreigners. ….

          No modern day liberal would dare question the need for some form of government aid to the poor. But Margaret Sanger wanted more for the privileged and less for the poor. How did someone who was so obviously biased and lacking in compassion become the heroine of todays liberals? ….

          Good question. It is answered when you trace the strings on the Democratic party back to the Fabian Socialists and their love of Eugenics.

          Too bad none of the blacks realize how they are actually viewed by the Fabian Socialists. North Carolina was sterilizing Blacks up until 1977 thanks to the efforts of Planned Parenthood and Sanger. A few short decades later…

          Former eugenics founded Planned Parenthood director to lead President Barack Obama’s organization in North Carolina… [In] 2007, she was working for the Hillary Clinton for President campaign in Iowa.

At least until Boehner and Pelosi get their acts together and wrangle enough Democrat votes to over ride the Republican majority. Yes, that’s right. Boehner has and will work with Pelosi to over ride his own parties majority.

  12. gofer says:

    The public supports the Republicans so they are in control to lay all tge blame on democrats.

    The new Paragon Insights survey released this week found that 58 percent of registered voters oppose Obama’s executive actions, compared to 36 percent supporting them. The poll question highlighted the fact that the executive actions allow “four million undocumented immigrants to avoid deportation and seek jobs in the United States.”

    Registered voters also largely approved of the Republican tactic of defunding the order, with 53 percent telling the pollsters they support “Republicans in Congress taking away federal funding for this executive order” and just 36 percent saying they oppose that.

    Further, an overwhelming majority of registered voters said they would support legislation tightening regulations on hiring illegal immigrants — with 71 percent saying they would support such legislation compared to 21 percent who said they would oppose it.

      There is a problem: the “unwashed masses” called “the public” are spoon-fed BS by the overwhelmingly-Democratic mainstream news media–and now that the FCC (public employees are overwhelmingly unionized and owned by the Democratic Party) has declared “Net Neutrality” there will be no official voiced opposition. Don’t forget that the educational establishment is overwhelmingly Democratic. Pollsters have been overwhelmingly Democratic since the days of FDR–which is why the Republicans are painted as racists even though the KKK was the terrorist arm of the DNC.

      No wonder the Republicans suffer from DNC-envy and are Democrat Lite!

        If they had any guts, they would shut down the filibuster like the democrats did and let Obama take the fall by vetoing the bill. They try to play nice against liars, cheats and generally mean people and they need to realize it. They shoved the Republicans aside and passed Obamacare by bribing and twisting around the rules. Give them a taste of their own medicine, since they will be blamed anyway.

    Playing hardball with bad guys is dangerous. What happened to Kennedy when he played hardball with Castro? Our Congress critters are not nearly as well protected. Standing up to dictators and those pretending to be dictators takes courage.

    Politicians with courage are overqualified for their office.
