A Liberation Manifesto

January 17, 2014

The chat below represents a spontaneous chat this morning on Facebook. I called it a manifesto, because it seems only right wingers have them (sarcasm noted). The names have been altered for the sake of their privacy;

Pat Carfagno: Its not something I like to make the focus of my life, but I have MS. I had wonderful health insurance and pharm coverage. I have all but lost my pharm coverage with the advent of Obamacare and its affect on private insurance. It is so restrictive as to be useless for someone with chronic illness. A broad look at the changes shows the deliberate isolation of specialty drugs from folks like me. Where the insurance that I worked for, was once a successful attempt at personal responsibility, I am now to be responsible for 50 Grand a year out of pocket. It might as well be a million.

I assure you all that I am not alone in this. As the year progresses, more and more people will discover that they have been targeted for costs savings by insurance companies with the permission and blessing of Obamacare. The chronically ill will find out first. It is only as boomers are diagnosed with illness will they find out that they have been similarly targeted.

There is a “free drug” program for me to apply for. Then, at the end of your life, (or before) the government comes to liquidate your assets for your “privilege” of getting “free” drug. I will not bankrupt my family for the ‘common good’.

Note that this confiscation is what politicians mean when they use the phrase “means testing”.

Yippee.

Still waiting for paperwork (application). But its already been months. It seems as if you can have free drug on the taxpayers dime. The drug company will “give” you drug, but the taxpayer fully reimburses the drug company for the full 50 grand. I will not be part of such an evil thing by participating even though this decision may have a profound effect on my quality of life.

(responses)
Sam: Government at it best! Just like Social security, medicare etc.\

Anna: A woman that has a hysterectomy had to carry it…just in case. A women over the age of 65 has to carry it…CHILDREN may have to carry it as well…just in case. Idiocy. Real. True. Idiocy.

Beth: The libs have turned America into a communal village, next we’ll be sharing bathrooms. I just abhor what the socialist/Marxist are doing to this Nation.

Pat Carfagno;

I thank God that he is in charge of the plan of my life and not any man.

I am posting this chat because I think the posts linked together make an especially coherent explanation of the situation Americans will find themselves in sooner, rather than later, which I have thus far been unable to express. Note that the taxpayer will now pay the drug company for their products rather than the private drug insurance program in which I have been enrolled.

Note further that elite leftist pattern of having our children pay for their elders freebies remains in overdrive in this and all government ponzi schemes.

God Save Us.

Get Off My Lawn

The characters played by Clint Eastwood have been a bit of a role model for me. Characters like Eastwood’s Harry Callahan, Josey Wales and Will Munny are inspirations in the silent action hero genre.

But as the great Dirty Harry said, “A man’s got to know his limitations”. Sometimes it takes us all a bit too long to know our own.

Since before September 11 patriots have been of one mind to restore their nation to its sanity. Since then we’ve gotten battered with the Dubai ports deal, Medicare D, the so called stimulus package, bank bailouts, cash for clunkers (not to be confused with the GM bailout), Obamacare, civil trials for terrorists, the gun walking scandal, Benghazi and a seemingly endless parade of assaults on the common sense and domestic tranquility of our nation.

A strategic withdrawal from battle is sometimes called for. Now is as bad a time as any for my enemy Multiple Sclerosis to call me to its’ attention.

Patriot producer Tim Sumner and SHREW Anna Bee will keep our good work going at Freedom Radio Network until my return.

Standing your ground while I’m off reconnoitering is a given. I’ll be around. I pray and know you will all stay alert; Mr. Obama never gets tired of finding new ways to screw his own people.

To quote Eastwood’s great Sergeant Highway from HeartBreak Ridge

“You can make it; Don’t give the prick the satisfaction.” ,

President Cookie Dough

November 2, 2013
By

When my younger son was four, he was gorgeous. Of course he had his own beautiful ideas as well. Many of these ideas were outstanding, like his first book, “Super Apple” or his own personally coined curse words, “shaggy cookie dough”.

Still as wonderful as he was, he was still a four year old with all its magic and with all its standard benchmarks. For an entire year, he was sure that his Mom knew how to build a real car, but that I was simply cruelly refusing to cooperate and build him one. He insisted in the midst of an Oscar winning performance of tragic betrayal that my lack of cooperation was simply more than he could bear.

And so it is with King Barackus Obamas I. He wants what he wants when he wants it and there is no telling him otherwise. He seems incapable of accepting the reality that he may be the president, but that he is dependent on the cooperation of others to get things done.

Luckily our son grew up. Not so Mr. Obama. His maturation seems to have abruptly halted somewhere in adolescence. Whatever the psychological profile, the man and the presidency are in great need of an adult sense of discipline that has alluded his grasp thus far. We should not expect him to acquire it in the next three years.

God save us.

Who Knew

Its been a rough several years for many Americans. But gratefully through our trials we learn. Indeed, we have learned.

So many patriots took enormous amounts of time away from their families and their professions to work to save their country. We gave our time, our blood and our treasure. We’ve worked within the system and without, often supporting candidates who turned out to be less than stellar while we were the ones often being portrayed as lawless. We are now older, grayer, slower and poorer, for the experience.

And through it all while we furiously worked, planned, cried and prayed; the Lord was in charge. We planned, plotted and marched while He watched and smiled. While the powers that be worried about the power of the Tea Party, they forgot to worry about the power of God.

So while we were all doing our thing, the Lord took the powerful and used their vanity to destroy their plans. He did it on the evening news. He did it on the radio. He did it on the internet. He did it in the public square. He continues the process with a daily avalanche of revelations that continuously demonstrate man’s pathetic limitations. God it seems has a sense of humor.

Who knew that something as simple as pride would be the undoing of our want-to-be slave masters? Who knew that no Tea Party, no wunderkind, no army of conservatives would finally be the undoing of man’s latest plan to enslave man, the ineptly named Affordable Care Act?

Who knew?

He did.
