No! Barack Obama! You May Not Join the Neighbor Hood Gang!

You may not join the neighborhood gang! Balk-U.S., Boner, and Ghastly Grassley play the game of:

Crips & Bloods;

Hatfields and McCoys;

Sunnis and Shiites;

Catholics and Protestants in No. Ireland;

Cage Fighters;

Israelis and Palestinians;

Broncos and Steelers;

Rush Limbaugh and Keith Olberman;

South Viet Nam and North Vietnam;

Nazis and Jews.

Mothers Against Drunk Drivers

They all played the M.A.D. game of internecine conflict. These guys, Republicans, have in common the trait of all true believers. They hold their politics as a religion. They may appear to debate and want to discuss the issues. However, they have the catechism of their true faith in Ronald Regan, glamorous, Hollywood, unthinking ideologue celebrity, who stood for one thing only: government IS the problem.

Regan said it with those resonant, actor-trained tones beautifully and forcefully, that government is regulation and the deprivation of freedom. Freedom unchecked is cause for rugged individualism in the financial markets and elsewhere, cause for massive accumulation of wealth. Never, ever, forget that blot on the psyches of all Republicans. That is their ideology.

AND YOU WANT TO JOIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD GANG OF RIGHT WINGNUTS IN SOME FANTASY-FORM OF AN “ACCORD” THAT WILL GIVE US WHAT DEMOCRATS (PROGRESSIVES, LIBERALS) DO NOT WANT: A HEALTH-CARE PLAN WITH ANY GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED PLAN FOR HEALTH CARE OMITTED.

They clearly are making all-out war against any government plan of healthcare at any and every public forum, and doing it wretchedly. Purposely. With the generous millions in support from those who stand to lose the most, the health-insurance companies.
Yet we all know government is a way of life in any society. How many layers of government do we labor under?
Homeowners associations covenants;
Building codes;
Rules of etiquette;
School districts;
Townships and counties;
Municipalities;
States;
Nation;
Nato;
Trade agreements;
Bi-lateral treaties and agreements;
International treaties;

The Geneva Conventions;

The Rights of Man;

The UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice, including the “Don’t be stupid” catchall article);
United Nations.

No one can be against government to the extent they are. They are truly UN_AMERICAN. Perhaps even “Anti-American” since they are probably conscious of what they are doing with their “other-American idea” of what “America” is.

You want to play nice with them, “bi-partisan” is your code word, and they are incapable of being bi-partisan, unless they have the bill their way. They may, in a certain sense, be considered “insane”, utterly foolish, ridiculous, and lacking any logical or practical basis for their “NO-sense” nonsense, except their underlying and unstated hostility to government.

I have medicare, but my children don’t. But we have all heard many of their followers’ hard-core ignorance about that program. My children have needed the government option, and I saw first-hand its value

Actually, their word for it is “socialism”, “socialized medicine”. They see that as a form of government, capital “S”. Their religion is “capitalism”, a form of economic-government, government that exists only for the furtherance of capitalism, that gives private-enterprise its profits. But, as we have seen,  when there are losses, that’s the time to switch to Socialism, which does have its uses for them.

There can BE a “socialized” medicine (small “s”), in the sense of making healthcare useful for the purposes of society, just as we socialize young people to take their place in society. Socialized medicine in that sense delivers health as a right. Government makes an abundance of laws for the health and safety of society as a whole.

Air quality.

Water quality.

Much of those layers of governmental mandates enumerated above has the motive of creating safety and health for the nation, and the globe. Our more reccent concerns have been elevated to encompass the whole earth, for health and welfare of people everywhere has become an imperative.

Medicine socialized is in the U.S. Constitution, as I interpret it.

Mr. President, you took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution at your swearing in. Everyone knows you are a Constitutional scholar.  Doesn’t the Constitution include the Preamble, which sets the overarching policy for all parts of our social contract: “…to form a more perfect Union…promote the general Welfare…”? I call it the promise of America to all who want to come here and to all who are here. The particulars of “general Welfare” were left to be stated more fully subsequently in law. What are more general-welfare elements than health and education? (Education will be next.)

Mr. President, you have a higher calling to think beyond the neighborhood gang of Republicans. But you seem to me to want to “mud wrestle” with those religiously political fanatics in the Republican party who are playing a dirty and deceptive game with you. They want your destruction as a political force. I and many others are sorely disappointed in you.

Democrats won the election, I thought. But I now feel that BIG MEDICINE CEOs and those democrats who received millions from BM are winning the battle for what you are afraid to say, Medicare For All.

UNLESS. (And that’s a wipeout of everything I said above.)

Unless Pres. Obama has concocted his understated and insubstantial presence for his plan for healthcare reform, a muddling mess,  in order to cause a massive grass-roots movement on the issue. It may be happening now. He does not want to be out there alone. He wants some movement in the nation to assess the degree of support for healthcare for all. Is he that smart?

The only solution: a national telecast introducing his schematic presentation of a SYSTEMS ANALYSIS  of his  health care plan, compared and contrasted to the status quo and to any Republican plan extant. He has all the resources to accomplish that.

It will never happen because he is conserving his political capital; therfore, the less said the better.

  1. I usually don’t put up in Blogs however your weblog pressured me to, wonderful work.. lovely …

  2. Great headline. If your cookie has a bite-sized action and your reader completes the action, I think two things happen. Their self-confidence goes up (which feels good) and their trust in you increases.
