Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Alan Grayson:

At the risk of seeming to continuously bleat, I find I must steadily emphasize the obvious because the national US media consistently refuse to cover the most basic of stories, if they somehow conflict with the idealistic path plotted by the current Obama Administration.

The story of Alan Grayson is being smothered by the US media; you'll only read about it on blogs and on the internet. And hear sound bites on Conservative talk radio.

Alan Grayson says that Republicans, with regard to health care, believe you mustn't get sick and -- if you do -- must die quickly.

That would be quite the opposite of the true-life implications of ObamaKare. Watch the video:



Who is Alan Mark Grayson (b. 03-13-58), you logically ask? He is a member of the House for Florida's 8th District.

Grayson already made a statement about Ben Bernanke's adviser, Linda Robertson, here.

This lobbyist, this K street whore, is trying to teach me about economics," he said.

Someone just reach up and slap me.

Just slap me.

Because had any of this occurred under a GOP administration, it would have been headline news for days and days and days.

And the fact, now, that I bring this up could be construed, under my current government, as defeatist and obfuscatory and "fishy" and insurrectionist.

Hey, I didn't see your comment until we were out of California. I was traveling with my parents and my Dad had the whole trip scheduled out. Otherwise, I would've tried to connect with you and some other bloggers along the way.

I've got my first post up, when we went to the Grand Canyon.

Of course, you find fault with Grayson he's a Democrat. It seems It's Okay to Say these things If the Speaker is a Republican.

But, of course, you are incorrect as usual. When Bush's Pentagon was underfunding Veterans Care (Walter Reed being the most egregious example) during war it was a rallying point for Republicans to come together and blame the media. How dare they criticize Bush during war it's helps our enemies...

"The amounts have gotten to the point where they are hurtful. They are taking away from the nation's ability to defend itself," says David S. Chu, the Pentagon's undersecretary for personnel and readiness, Jan 2005.

And so Chu and President Bush must have been happy or perhaps just indifferent or incompetent when more and more Veterans began taking their lives after coming home from Bush's war and not receiving help because the Commander-in-Chief didn't care about them after the parade tape had been swept up and the band gone home...

So Alan Grayson was correct Bush's treatment of Veterans proves Republicans want people to die quickly when they get hurt or ill.

Grung_e_Gene said..."A bunch of bullsh-t looking backwards. Yeah GWB did everything wrong, he sucked and I think he actually caused global warming, mass murder and the swine flu...OK I get it....

Really I hope like hell this country implodes, it's the only way we are going to rid the planet of idiots like Grung...Obama is taking us down the path to anarchy, and when it happens I'll welcome the opportunity cull the herd.

Greyson calls a woman a whore, he calls an entire group of elected officials murderers, and the libturds defend him. GWB called our enemy Islamic Radicals and the libturds lost a blood vessel. Our men and women dying in the streets of a foreign nation and the libturds like Grung did everything but offer to pull the trigger for the enemy. Good job Grung you worthless c-sucker.

I hear your hero Obama finally made a decision to help in Afghanistan, he's sending 40k troops to Fox News....

Bushwack, nice of you to steal Leno's joke.Loser

Graysons words may have been poorly chosen but the fact of the matter is he is right.

And the media 'missed' many stories when Bush was in office as he was 'catapulting the propaganda.'

Bushwack,

I'd like to thank you for illustrating once again I need to continue to fight against the evil Republican Party and it's brain-washed non-thinking sycophants who blindly turn their faces away from Republican Evils but suddenly find themselves fiscally conservative and anti-government power when they no longer hold the reigns.

America love it or leave it...

Republicans hate America and the American people and want them to die. I will continue the battle of good (me) versus evil (you) because all it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

Bushwack comment- I'll welcome the opportunity cull the herd. BTW, Bushwack I see by your comment you hate Veterans and want to murder them but it's almost the holiday season could you find it in your heart to not wish Veterans death?

I do remember the complains about WRAMC and there are a couple of things wrong with placing it all on the Bush Administration. First is the place was being remodeled as it was getting run down, so while the new digs were getting refurbished things were quite in an uproar. Still that doesn't excuse the standard bureaucratic Charlie-Foxtrot that goes on with the VA system. Thus point two is necessary.

That second point is that the VA gets funded by Congress, not the President. All the overhead gets funded by Congress. The remodeling got funded by Congress. The paperwork is mandated by Congress. The employment practices are spelled out by Congress. Congress tells the VA exactly how it must follow the rules set by Congress for its authority to write the rules of conduct for the Army and the Navy.

Notice which part of that is done by the President? Administering it. Talk to the vets in the VA and the VA has always been a Charlie-Foxtrot in living memory. There is a problem in that and it is not one of Administrations but the rules set up by Congress, the inadequate funding by Congress, the poor oversight by Congress and then the complaining done by Congress for the lack of funds, lack of oversight and volumes of paperwork that clog the system.

Which part of that is done by any President, including the present one? And which branch of government fills the budget with lots of pork, and IGNORES the VA and WRAMC while complaining about it?

Congress.

All the Congresscritters who complain about it, without exception, in all parties and factions, including independents. You want less paperwork, better pay, proper reimbursement for doctors and patients? Congress is where you go for that. No President, including the current one, can run that system well because of the amount of power Congress has. Go to your local VA hospital and check it out... then remember this is under a different President. Do go, I urge you to see the veterans of wars who we are not treating well as a Nation. It is no mark of honor upon the Nation nor any party or any of its factions that allows this to happen. Yet it has sucked like an Electrolux for decades and no one President is to blame, including the current one.

Place the blame where it deserves to go.

Stop complaining and help to get it fixed so we can honor our veterans who have been wounded in our name.

Stop playing politics with them, as that is not helping the VA and letting these horrific Congresscritters off the hook for their lack of diligence to our Vets. Our Vets. Who volunteered to act in our name. Yours. Mine. That of every citizen. I don't care what your position is on a war declared by Congress, any war so declared, is done for us and we get men and women who volunteer for that job.

These veterans ARE home and if you can't treat them well, then what are the chances bringing them all home will get any honor from you? If you really do honor the soldiers, you want them treated well no matter what the mission, when they come home wounded and disabled. Yet I'm not hearing about that from any on the Left, about 'Hope & Change' on running the VA competently. And if the government can run the VA competently, then what are the chances that it will do one whit better on any other health care issue? Do visit your local VA hospital, I urge you to do so. Thank the vets and observe the conditions. Please.

Gene ... what planet are you from? During the Walter Reed fiasco, most people Republican and Democrat alike, denounced the way that our vets were being treated.

Bushawack

Nice to see you stand for the memorials to Veterans and not for actual Veterans. I understand Bushwack you are a Punk Ass Bitch (a.k.a. A Republican).

My "rantings" are back by the facts. Republican held Congress from 1994-2006, and the White House 2001-2006. Under Republican control, Punk Ass Bitch control that is, Veterans were allowed to suffer greatly because REMFpublican Chicken Hawk cowards care more about property than people. Bushwack you are a coward and cartoonish buffoon.

Bushwack continue to stand for the Party of Slogans the Coward Party who want Americans to die and loves to see them dead on foreign soil for money.

I do remember the 1990's and wrote about the strange idea of getting a 'Peace Dividend' while we had troops on the ground in Iraq. But then President HW Bush didn't finish that war, did he? Nor did President Clinton.

I remember that the Republicans did not properly fund O&M for the military nor did President Clinton present spending needs for his military escapades in Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo... and how that wore down the military no end because of the utilization of every day funds to do 'peacekeeping'. Republicans in Congress failed as did Democrats to ensure that the Constitutional duties of the President were carried out so as to have budgets presented for spending for these 'peacekeeping' efforts.

Because everyone wanted a 'peace dividend'.

No one wanted to talk about logistics.

We paid for that then, with decreasing readiness, with two Army Division falling to levels not seen since Viet Nam, in not taking care of our veterans at home and in failing then we failed ourselves years down the road.

I have no use for the sycophants in both parties who put party above Country. Who put good wishes above common sense and actually paying for what we need. Nor any use for spendthrifts who blithely present things as 'low cost' and know that they are not low cost and work any word magic necessary to make basic economics disappear.

I have no use for the Dept. of Agriculture, Energy, Education, much of the Interior beyond those functions mandated by the constitution, HHS, Federal Reserve, FHA, Fannie and Freddie, Amtrak... all getting lovely funding while our armed forces go wanting for basic supplies and care. I would not give a hot damn if they all disappeared from the government tomorrow, so long as we get good veterans care and a provisioned military set to take on the challenges that face us in a decaying world.

The music of Nero is readily picked up by both parties and their operatives. The music is so sweet... don't mind the smoke and flames headed your way. Others complain about the heat, I point out the damned city is on fire. It doesn't help if you are the one holding a torch and setting the fires, when those wanting to start a bucket brigade are the ones you are complaining to about the heat.

No good will come of that.

Tends to get the torchbearers a nasty end, too.
