Obama and Bush, Uhhh ObamBush

May 9, 2009

manchurian candidate The Manchurian Candidate. Remember him? The meta-zombie cum progressive Democrat, skillfully mind-controlled by North Korean operatives into a George Bush sleeper traitor?  The North Koreans didn’t need water boarding, did they?  But, you say, the Manchurian Candidate was just a movie; the fevered raving of a Hollywood screenwriter who feared a Barack ObamaBush might one day come to power.  Well, the uber-sleeperzoid is here, reading his teleprompter while taking twitter orders from corporate republicrat masters.

The cockeyed optimists

The cockeyed optimists

So let’s relax and take another sip of  Kool-Aid while we join Barack O’Bam-Bush, our South Pacific island boy, Nurse Nellie and deBecque for a chorus of A Cockeyed Optimist.

I went to bed on November 4, 2008 and when I woke up the human face of corruption was still in office.  Sure, he had a nice Hawaiian tan and a big pair of man titties but I recognized the beady eyes and arrogant sneer.  Was I dreaming?  Of course, it was Bush, it had to be.  Wasn’t old CIA hand, Robert Gates, still there managing yet another front in the war on terror? And how about General Michael Hayden, National Eavesdropper-in-Chief, who can’t recall where he put the “probable cause” provision of The Constitution. And, oh yeah, there was neither push-back nor comment on this interpretation emanating from Attorney General Eric Holder nor Obama.  Whoa! Did I see single-payer health care protesters arrested on Capitol Hill?   Hell, even before the election I saw Nancy Pelosi order security to remove Cindy Sheehan because she wanted to debate the merits of the war and bringing the Bush crooks to justice.

New Mantra.  Neither Bush cons nor Obama crooks will be brought to justice.

And FISA? How could we still have that after O’Bambi filibustered it (not)?  Best of all is the Patriot Act which laid around under Bush II because the liberals railed against it but will be dusted off and shined up now for faugressive  BushBama’s third term. The liberals are deafeningly silent and poisonously defensive about their choice of the freaky, spy loving, Chicago constitutional part-time professor. So why is it that the new ObamaBush fauxgressive president, who promised to bring the troops home, is imposing the stealthiest domestic spying campaign ever?  The prosecution of the “war on terror” is the biggest boondoggle, military-industrial gravy train, coup d’etat, and trumped up causus belli since Julius Caeser but it has its megawinners. It is a distraction from the destructive tsunami of globalization, international financial irresponsibility, and environmental collapse, so it will never end.  Only it’s parameters will change. The same people that armed the “bad guys” yesterday are the ones who would now incinerate them.

And the Patriot Act is even spookier than I imagined.  I thought it was for those stupid terrorists making reckless phone calls back and forth between terrorland and the hated US of A.  But it’s not just for those pesky terror calls.  The spies-in-chief also want to know everything YOU think and say, believe, read, watch on television, how much money you donate and to which candidate.  Google, Microsoft, and GE want your information.  As an even exchange they are committed to giving you nothing back.  You get NO information, no useful data, no news, no reasons. They also want your MEDICAL RECORDS.  They can get your medical records right now, no subpoena required, just a national security letter issued by THEM to an administrator who can’t tell anyone they requested the records.  Once O’Bush gets all of our medical records digitized and uploaded to a database NO ONE WILL KNOW what’s been done with them.  And you can’t ever take “them” to court to find out what they know or why you’re being charged with anything because of what they found. Once a medical record is triangulated with what personal data is readily available there is nothing about you that can’t be identified.Why should you care? Because maybe some of us may get to know what it’s like to disappear inside a secret prison. Because , as somebody once said, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

They’re not just watching the terrorists, they’re watching YOU!

Obama Wants to Sell Your X-Rays

April 16, 2009

Obama’s new stimulus plan provides $20 billion for the electronic updating of medical records. The electronic medical update was Tom  Daschle’s plan. Although Obama insisted during the campaign that he would rid Washington of lobbyist influence, it was Daschle’s schemes with and for the insurance and pharmaceutical conglomerates that got him Obama’s nod for Health and  Human Services Secretary. Tom has been benched.  But Obama has already taken the hand-off.  Not only is it a vast financial boon for marketers , it will allow insurance companies to get around privacy requirements and perhaps charge more for drugs, or decline coverage for pre-existing conditions.

No worries for company’s over privacy violation lawsuits.  No one can find out if their privacy has been breached.

This huge attack on privacy was shoved through in an “emergency” bill because otherwise the public wouldn’t have swallowed it.

And what’s Obama going to do with this data base?

Do you trust this administration to have everything bit of information about you available to them at the touch of a button?  Have you taken illegal drugs? What legal drugs do you take?  What’s your preferred form of birth control? Any abortions? How about a rare blood type,or  psychiatric problem?  Anything else you can think of that you don’t want Google to put on the internet, upload to your employer or send around the world?

What of the obvious national security implications around this vast network of data collection?

Just a few years ago hackers and identity thieves repeatedly accessed credit data and social security numbers.  Hundreds of thousands of military veteran’s and university records were lifted.  No firewalls to protect data were put in place after the first thefts and the public was not notified.  Who has that stolen data now?  The Russian Mafia?

Maybe I just don’t trust this administration.  But with good reason.

Make no mistake.  The rush to update medical records is not for the benefit of American citizens. Globalizing information is about globalization. It will allow the globalizers, hedge fund operators, military strategists and world bankers to plan and build for the future, for their future, without your knowledge. It’s a money-making or money saving enterprise for the big transnational industrial, pharmaceutical, insurance and information companies that sit at the plutocrat’s table.

But it’s part of a larger picture.  Obama wants a complete record of every American.

Obama is the creator of the most far reaching surveillance and secrecy schemes in American history.  Not only did he back FISA after insisting he would filibuster it, he has appointed former CIA deputy Michael Hayden as head of the NSA.  Remember Micheal Hayden, the former CIA official who insists “probable cause” does not apply to the “search” or “seizure” clauses of the 4th amendment to the Constitution, only to the issuance of warrants?  The Director of National Intelligence will also have vast and probably unlimited powers to collect information from all forms of communications intercepted within the U.S, including emails and blogs. The surveillance possibilities have yet to be tapped.

Obama also wants every American to be signed up as a volunteer, like it or not.  Young people will be required to volunteer for the public good, college age students will volunteer as community workers or civil defense agents in order to receive college loans.  The elderly will be enlisted to serve as mentors to the students. All of this “volunteering” will require every person to be tracked for grant aid or employment purposes.

So call me crazy but…

The electronic updating and storing of medical records by this administration may be something we live to regret.


Will There Be Enough Buses for Obama?

February 13, 2009

I give up. My only question now about Obama is are enough buses for all the voters Obama will throw under them? His disingenuous use ’em and lose ’em routine is so, soooo tired.

He started his under-the-bus routine early in his career, keeping incumbent Alice Palmer off the ballot by challenging her every ballot petitioner so he could run unopposed.The story is here if any of his starry eyed followers care to remember. Since then, of course, Obama is all about making sure every vote counts-when it counts for him-funding Acorn to sign up every crack addict and cartoon character capable of boarding a bus to the polls.

Then, Let’s see, hmmmmmm. Backtrack Barack changed his mind on:
Reverend Jeremiah Wright in a “Lincolnesque” and graceful toss under the wheels
NAFTA-didn’t mean what he said
Gun control
Gay marriage
Separation of church and state
FISA
Campaign Finance Reform
His position against “state secrets” as applied to tortured detainees
A clear policy repudiating Bushes’ signing statements which undermined the separation of governmental powers and drastically increased the power of the executive branch
The death penalty
The Fair Pay Act-setting standards for equal pay for women

In his zeal to present a picture of bi-partisanship on HR 1 with Republicans he has failed to oppose:
The elimination contraception and family planning funding for poor women
A severe cut in funding for work rehabilitation for the blind
Huge cuts in funding for
* State stabilization fund, cut by $39.78 billion
* Title I, cut by $6.5 billion
* Special education/IDEA, cut by $6.75 billion
* Head Start, cut by $1 billion
And
Prevention and wellness funding for diabetes, HIV/AIDS and STDs. No surprise on HIV/AIDs since Obama praised Rick Warren’s AIDS Africa outreach which helped demonize gay activists and activated an abstinence only program that actually increased AIDs cases, especially among women. Even if he is a total homophobe, which I suspect he is, wouldn’t he fight for funding for the health issues that strike the African-American community so disproportionately, AIDS and Diabetes?
And

I’m sure there are plenty of other examples I can’t recall. Oh yeah. Obama was going to pay Hillary’s campaign debt if she gave him her donor list and campaigned for him. And um, that didn’t happen, the debt payment, that is.

I suppose Obama doesn’t really give a hoot about the people who gave him their money and worked so hard to elect him, even the ones who still dream of the GQ president on long winter nights. If they thought they heard him make a promise he’ll inform them they were mistaken. No, that’s wrong, according to spokesbots from the Obamanation. He’s the worlds smartest and most arcane thinker, dreaming up convoluted tricks with which to snare his enemies. NOT!

See ya under the bus Obots.
