"What is it with progressives and their opposition to average people speaking their mind?"

Good observation from LT Nixon:

"The more I see the progressives in charge of the country, the more I believe that it's being led by power-hungry politicians who to seek to continuously win elections by coercing constituents to be dependent on government charity. If they are so true to their "power to the people" principles, then why is there so much opposition to average people speaking their mind?"

McClatchy cartoonists have made it clear they have nothing but contempt for the unwashed masses speaking out against Obama Care. Sacramento Bee cartoonist Rex Babin depicts them as clowns and thugs. Joel Pett at the Lexington Herald-Leader portrays the protesters as idiots.

The only voice allowed in the Socialist/Marxist/Maoist/Communist/Leftist/Liberal/Progressive/New Democrat/Labour/National Socialist/Facist Party mind is that of the, "Hive."

It has always been that way. It always will, no matter what they are branding themselves as at the moment.

Freedom of Speech is in direct contrast to the good of the whole when the goal is "Socialism for you, lead by us"

About that deadline...
Politico, by Victoria McGrane

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) dismissed the Sept. 15 deadline given by President Barack Obama for Senate negotiators to produce a health reform bill. “We are going to be ready when we’re ready,” Conrad said on Fox News Sunday.(Snip)Conrad also shot down the public option., saying that "there are not the votes in the United States Senate” for it.

A little bird whispered something in Sen. Kent Conrad's (D-N.D.) ear.
Gee, I wonder what it was?

Hell yes! Obama, give it up!
Advice to Patriots, call Obama’s health care plan what it is, SOCIALISM, call it by its name to everyone you know.

"Progressives" are under the mistaken belief that they're smarter than the "masses." And that they have far superior ideas that must be implemented. This is what is know as fantasy and often diagnosed as mental illness.

Dems jump ship, criticize the one that can’t blink. “I unequivocally reject those misguided comments”
Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) recently lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) recommended talking points aimed at the insurance industry, and criticized her approach in a letter to a local private insurance company, according to the Louisville Courier Journal.

“Regrettably, with passions inflamed throughout the country, Speaker Pelosi recently made inflammatory statements that assailed the character of health insurers across the board. [I unequivocally reject those misguided comments,]” Yarmouth wrote to the CEO of Louisville-based Humana, the paper reported this week.

Conventional wisdom is telling us that a reverse plant will appear at one of the next town hall meetings. It will be someone yelling, out-of-control, and they will throw in a racial slur. The Democrats will demonize this person as another Joe the Plumber.
Eagles Up!

When the health care bill implodes, it will be further proof that the media has lost their influence over the people. With all their outright lies and biased reporting, the American people are ignoring them. It is such fun to watch these self- anointed elitists bite the dust. Obama is a liar, and the media lies for him, who needs these bums? Toss them all out, just do it!

Katie Couric reported that on health care, the response of the American people is ‘ignorance’ speaking. That is going to pick up her ratings. What a dumbbell she is. When is CBS going to pull the plug on her terminally ill news show?

The next war looms already. Rest up for the cap and trade bill resistance. It is more socialism shoved down our throats. Make the Democrats choose, kowtow to Czar Obooba, or get reelected.
Four Democratic senators want to delay cap and trade bill
(Obama and Pelosi running out of fuel)

Dallas Eexaminer By KJ Collins
Four Democratic senators want to put off the proposed cap & trade legislation. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Byron Dorgan and Kent Conrad both of North Dakota are urging the Senate to delay legislation that puts caps on greenhouse gas emissions and instead, pass a narrow bill that sets requirements on the use of renewable energy.
Senators Lincoln and Dorgan are up for re-election in 2010 and are from states that would be hurt economically from a cap and trade bill similar to the one passed by the House in June.

Oh well, if Katie Couric is in favor of national health care, then it must be good. Katie is probably the worlds only perky former cheerleader that understands the nuanced manifestations of this complex issue.

I am sure glad we got that straightened out. Now can I go to the mall?

Progressives have always hated the real people.
They are only for the "proletariot" who fit their academic categories. As for real, flesh and blood people who want freedom and who think they know how to handle their own money....not so much.

I called both Boxer's and Feinstein's (Californias mentally challenged Senators)offices locally and in Washington asking for date, time and places of their Townhall meetings this month. I desired to attend.

Box of Bricks Boxer's office responded "The Senator had none scheduled for the month, that she was extremely busy".

Feinstein's offices replied "she has not completed her schedule yet".

(Note to Boxer, you only represent some 13% of the nations population. Maybe some are concerned about their healthcare.)

(Note to Feinstein, there are only 2 weeks left in August. Work on your schedule and hold some Townhall meetings. Maybe some are concerned about their healthcare.)

Will both senators please check their dipsticks.....the engine is low.

Barbara Boxer is quite possibly the dumbest person ( in a clinical sense) to have ever been a senator in this nation.
And that's saying something.

Anonymous said...

5:41.... Patty Murray (D-umb Wa)is pretty close in the competition for dumbest senator ever. Don't go thinking your Senator Boxer is just going to walk away with that title.

I was in California at the time of the world series earthquake back around 1989 and I will never forget watching Barbara Boxer being interviewed as she sadly intoned how dying in the earthquake would greatly impact "the rest of their lives" (referring to those who had perished). Another favorite Boxer quote during the check kiting scandal when she got caught kiting checks was something to the effect that Hitler had probably had a checkbook also. A complete idiot.

Oh yeah... Well Patty Murray thinks we could have avoided 9/11 if we had built more day care centers in countries that hate us because we are not Muslims.

It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned blogging system that has an anti-Obama message.
