John Boehner Hates Obama, Because Of Offshore Drilling

Barack Obama, as always, has tried to extend an Olive Branch to his critics today, by finally letting them drill their fat faces full of oil, all the time, at which point the oil companies will give all Americans tons of oil. (Or they will sell it to higher Chinese bidders on the global market, but hey, same country essentially!…??) What did he get in exchange during these negotiations? Because this is the exact sort of thing a Democrat would use as a bargaining chip with Republicans. Oh, just a nasty letter from John Boehner about how Obama hates America. Everybody wins! ...Read the rest at Wonkette!    (thanks, Wonkette!)

RADICAL solutions HERE!

Radical solution #1:  No Bill shall come before Congress which is more than 100 pages long.  Enforce this rule by breaking all legislation so legislators and public can read and fully understand.  Committiees must re-write and edit so every voted on bill is 100 pages or less.

Radical solution #2:  Allow tea-baggers and right-wingers to opt out of EVERY federal program.  We cut their taxes to be lower than anyone elses, BUT, for them, No Medicare, No firemen, No lobbying or political contributions, No Social Security, No Medicaid, No mail services, No rail services, No public transportation of any kind, No public water (dig a well!), No sewage treatment (get a tank!), No public TV, No Unemployment insurance (government handouts), No food inspections, No student loans, No garbage pickup, etc.

Radical solution #3: Outlaw ALL political monetary or in-kind contributions from individuals and private/public companies.  Outlaw all lobbying groups and PAC efforts.

Radical solution #4: Outlaw career politicians; make and enforce term limits.

Radical solution #5: Government & major corporations (combined) pay for Training of workers, right out of high school, especially for lower-income families.  Incentivize fields where needs are greatest.  MUCH cheaper to educate and collect taxes on the employed than to support non-workers.  

Radical solution #6: Do away with "health insurance" all -together, and set up medical co-ops, where folks pay doctors and hospitals and clinics directly, at extremely more affordable rates than necessary when insurance companies are in the middle. Otherwise, just provide free care to the most needy and assist others who need it.  Remember, Everyone needs medical care and it is not a luxury or priveledge, but a basic human right. And providers need to be paid well for their hard work.

OK, now tell me why I'm wrong.....

More Tortoise Battles, must-see-TV!

The Teabagger Anti-Socialist Pledge

The Teabagger Anti-Socialist Pledge -

If you don't like socialism, then don't take part in it. Towards that end, I suggest that the next time you run up against one of these TeaBaggin fools, get them to sign this pledge:

I, ________________________, do solemnly swear to uphold the principles of a socialism-free society and heretofore pledge my word that I shall strictly adhere to the following:

I will complain about the destruction of 1st Amendment Rights in this country, while I am duly being allowed to exercise my 1st Amendment Rights.

I will complain about the destruction of my 2nd Amendment Rights in this country, while I am duly being allowed to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights by legally but brazenly brandishing unconcealed firearms in public.

I will foreswear the time-honored principles of fairness, decency, and respect by screaming unintelligible platitudes regarding tyranny, Nazi-ism, and socialism at public town halls. Also.

I pledge to eliminate all government intervention in my life. I will abstain from the use of and participation in any socialist goods and services including but not limited to the following:

· Social Security

· Medicare/Medicaid

· State Children’s Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP)

· Police, Fire, and Emergency Services

· US Postal Service

· Roads and Highways

· Air Travel (regulated by the socialist FAA)

· The US Railway System

· Public Subways and Metro Systems

· Public Bus and Lightrail Systems

· Rest Areas on Highways

· Sidewalks

· All Government-Funded Local/State Projects (e.g., see Iowa 2009 federal senate appropriations)

· Public Water and Sewer Services (goodbye socialist toilet, shower, dishwasher, kitchen sink, outdoor hose!)

· Public and State Universities and Colleges

· Public Primary and Secondary Schools

· Sesame Street

· Publicly Funded Anti-Drug Use Education for Children

· Public Museums

· Libraries

· Public Parks and Beaches

· State and National Parks

· Public Zoos

· Unemployment Insurance

· Municipal Garbage and Recycling Services

· Treatment at Any Hospital or Clinic That Ever Received Funding From Local, State or Federal Government (pretty much all of them)

· Medical Services and Medications That Were Created or Derived From Any Government Grant or Research Funding (again, pretty much all of them)

· Socialist Byproducts of Government Investment Such as Duct Tape and Velcro (Nazi-NASA Inventions)

· Use of the Internets, email, and networked computers, as the DoD's ARPANET was the basis for subsequent computer networking

· Foodstuffs, Meats, Produce and Crops That Were Grown With, Fed With, Raised With or That Contain Inputs From Crops Grown With Government Subsidies

· Clothing Made from Crops (e.g. cotton) That Were Grown With or That Contain Inputs From Government Subsidies

If a veteran of the government-run socialist US military, I will forego my VA benefits and insist on paying for my own medical care

I will not tour socialist government buildings like the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

I pledge to never take myself, my family, or my children on a tour of the following types of socialist locations, including but not limited to:

· Smithsonian Museums such as the Air and Space Museum or Museum of American History

· The socialist Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson Monuments

· The government-operated Statue of Liberty

· The Grand Canyon

· The socialist World War II and Vietnam Veterans Memorials

· The government-run socialist-propaganda location known as Arlington National Cemetery

· All other public-funded socialist sites, whether it be in my state or in Washington, DC

I will urge my Member of Congress and Senators to forego their government salary and government-provided healthcare.

I will oppose and condemn the government-funded and therefore socialist military of the United States of America.

I will boycott the products of socialist defense contractors such as GE, Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Raytheon, Humana, FedEx, General Motors, Honeywell, and hundreds of others that are paid by our socialist government to produce goods for our socialist army.

I will protest socialist security departments such as the Pentagon, FBI, CIA, Department of Homeland Security, TSA, Department of Justice and their socialist employees.

Upon reaching eligible retirement age, I will tear up my socialist Social Security checks.

Upon reaching age 65, I will forego Medicare and pay for my own private health insurance until I die.
