America: A Banana Republic

So cloture passed over the weekend under the cover of darkness, and the leftists who want to kill this nation smiled like reptiles while they patted each other's back on C-Span.

Staffers on Capitol Hill were calling it the Louisiana Purchase.

On the eve of Saturday's showdown in the Senate over health-care reform, Democratic leaders still hadn't secured the support of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), one of the 60 votes needed to keep the legislation alive. The wavering lawmaker was offered a sweetener: at least $100 million in extra federal money for her home state.

And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor midafternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote -- and to trumpet the financial "fix" she had arranged for Louisiana. "I am not going to be defensive," she declared. "And it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix."

How does it feel to be a whore, Landrieu? And an arrogant one, at that.

This is bullshit of the highest degree! We have a bunch of fat old pigs sitting in Capitol Hill who refuse to hear We The People, and have made it clear that they will do damn well whatever they want to us. While some some Republicans have begun to use the actual printed out bill as a prop to show the sheer size of this monstrosity that not one Democrat who voted for it has actually read, leftists are arguing like toddlers as they are enslaving us:

The real star of the health care debate this weekend has been the 2,074-page bill — a physical manifestation of the size and scope of what's at stake as senators consider the overhaul of one-sixth of the nation's economy.

"It's a massive increase in government, as shown by this bill," Mr. Ensign, Nevada Republican, told a reporter off the floor later, spreading his arms wide as if to encompass the stack of papers more than a foot tall.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Alaska Republican, said the bill weighs more than 20 pounds.

The bill contains the word "tax" 511 times and includes 18 tax hikes, according to Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative lobbying group. It uses the word "require" more than 1,000 times and the word "shall" more than 3,500 times, and talks about studies required by the bill 150 times.


"You only have print on one side, which isn't even the way we print them up around here. I've had mine printed up on both sides, so I use both sides of the paper. So they've made an attempt here to make it look a lot higher than it is," he said.

When the official version is printed, Mr. Udall said, the type will be much smaller and the bill will amount to "an average-size book."

Seriously? Well, I guess that if you're screwing us in a smaller font it's not so bad.

I hate these people, and I hate what they're doing to us. How dare they tell me that I have to buy anything or get fined or jailed! How dare they spend my grandchildren into debt! Where the fuck is that in the Constitution?!?

That's right, it isn't there. But just ask Pelosi that question. She literally laughed at a reporter who dared to do so!


Ladies and Gentlemen, Americans, what this Congress is doing to us is absolutely illegal. I honestly do not see how we take our country back without torches and pitchforks. They don't listen when we have tea parties, town hall meetings, when we shut down their phone lines and fill their inboxes. I truly fear this country must be taken back by force, and I fear even more that most people haven't the balls to do it.
