The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Constitutional Amendment

March 30, 2010

Remember back when Obama was on the campaign trail and he promised us, (yes, I know he promised a lot of things that he hasn’t followed through on) that we would get the same healthcare that every Senator and Representative gets.

Didn’t quite work out that way, did it? Some real idiots in the Senate, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown being one of them, will grandstand and say he will not take the special Senate healthcare package. That’s because he is probably covered by his wife’s sweet deal with the Cleveland paper where she works. If he isn’t he may have some deal with his union cronies to be o their policy. You can bet your last dollar he won’t be fronting up to some goverment run clinic or standing in line for a byass when he gets sick.

Sherry Brown thinks you are an idiot and that he and his pals Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their pinko, I’m sorry, “progressive,” pals who are now hard at work writing the “regulations,” can run your life better than you can. This is one of the most basic myths of “Progressivism.” 

So the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is supporting this Amendment to the Constitution. A friend sent this to us and asked we put it up for your consideration. I am only too happy to do so. 

 

       Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States  Constitution       
 
“Congress shall make no  law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply  equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no  law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply  equally to the citizens of the United States.”

The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: The Curious Case of David Espo, Alleged Journalist

March 26, 2010

 

I saw an article in my local paper today under the byline of one David Espo of the Associated Press. At the time I knew nothing of Mr. Espo. After reading the first sentence in his article it was obvious that he had neither taken a basis civics course in high school or college nor did he have a functional knowledge of law, rights, the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution.

Here is part of the sentence that made me want to learn more about Mr. Espo,

“…congressional Democrats put the final touches Thursday March 25, to historic legislation enshrining health care as the right of every citizen.”

Wow! I would advise Mr. Espo not to go on the “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader” television quiz show. Even my fifth grade son knows that our rights as American citizens do not come from Congress, Democrats or laws. Our rights, if you would like to look at Declaration of Independence, come to us from our Creator. A few of them are listed there. Here is why we believe our rights come from the Creator, Mr. Espo: because then only he can take them away!

Furthermore, Mr. Espo seems to think that because Congress passes a law that is “enshrined.” I am not sure if he knows what that word means or perhaps this unbiased “journalist” was speaking metaphorically. In a democratic republic like ours laws are open to challenge. As a final note on this one sentence Mr. Espo seems to think it covers “every citizen.” Even those how foisted this unwanted scam on the American public admit it still leaves millions uninsured.

I thought I would do a little research on the undereducated Mr. Espo. I wanted to find out how someone who demonstrated such enormous incompetence in so few words could hold a job. Perhaps he had just had a bad day at the word factory. Imagine my surprise when I found a number of internet references to what I will politely term “misstatements” in Mr. Espo’s work.

His reporting on redistricting in Texas, ( http://unitelater.com/s9y/index.php?/archives/140-David-Espo-Incompetent,-or-Propagandist.html  ), on voting for judicial nominees, (http://www.all-encompassingly.com/third-grade-insights-from-david-espo/) and a number of other topics as reported on the News Busters ( http://newsbusters.org/people/david-espo ) show him to be nothing more than a left wing propagandist. This is to be expected since he works at the Associated Press the media arm of socialist causes everywhere!

The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Bart Stupak, A Pocket Full of Mumbles

March 22, 2010

 

The horse trading went long into the night. In the end the House Democrats bought, cajoled, wrangled and bullied enough votes to pass the health care debacle. The battle is far from over and will range into next November and beyond.

As a far right wing nut job I will enjoy the coming downfall of the Democratic Party. I will enjoy the stunned looks on the faces of those who will lose their union and employer health care plans if this legislation stays around long enough to take effect. I will enjoy the coming revolt of the middle and upper class taxpayers. I could of course, be wrong. Maybe the American people are tired of being free and maybe rugged individualism is dead. Maybe the vast majority of my neighbors are looking forward to the never ending growth of the Federal Government. Maybe we all want the nanny state.

So now that the first battle of the “health care reform” movement is over we need to ask some questions. Is that it from the left?  Will there be no further movement to start a government option? Will there be no push to get to a single payer system? If you believe that you need to get in the line that starts right behind Rep. Bart Stupak.

Rep. Stupak has become the Neville Chamberlain of our time. Chamberlain, for those of you who attended public school, was the British prime minister who returned from a meeting with Hitler and thought he had reigned in the plans of the Nazis by getting them to sign a piece of paper. Stupak has traded his principled stand for the unborn for less.

Although I don’t approve I can understand someone like Mary Landrieu or Ben Nelson selling their vote for a payoff to their state. What did Bart Stupak get for giving up his values? He got Obama’s promise that he would issue an executive order.  This brings to mind a line from the old Simon and Garfunkel song, “The Boxer”, “I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.”

 Which has the greater force under the law, an Act of Congress or an Executive Order? If you answered an Act of Congress you are correct. So if the President’s Executive Order for Congressman Stupak is determined to be in conflict with the bill then the order is out and the bill is in. I would believe that if this Executive Order isn’t in conflict with the bill then there would have been no point in Mr. Stupak making a big deal about the abortion language all along.

Even if I am wrong, does Rep. Stupak think that the left wing of his party will now stop their push to have federal dollars fund unlimited abortion? He is waving his agreement and thinking he has done well and right. What he has really done is taking his place next to Chamberlain as one of the great political fools of all time.


The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Spring Fever

March 19, 2010

Even the most staunch of conservatives is not immune from a bad case of spring fever. Combine this with a healthy dose of March Madness and it spells trouble!

The VRWC will be back later this weekend with a new blog but until then enjoy some college hoop!


The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Lindsey Lohan, Reality is Calling, Please Answer!

March 15, 2010

 

You can say a lot of things about the modern Hollywood “Celebrity Class,” but no one has ever accused them of being short on a sense of self worth or ego. Case in point the recent publicity shenanigans by one Ms. Lindsay Lohan.

In case you haven’t heard Ms. Lohan, former teen movie star, is suing E*Trade for $100 million. Why? In a recent commercial, part of the  E*Trade series of talking baby ads unveiled at the Super Bowl, one baby refers to another baby named “Lindsey” as a “milkaholic.” Ms. Lohan’s claim is that the American public thinks of only one person when it hears the name “Lindsay” and that she is that person. Furthermore, that this funny little ad has so damaged her career and her reputation that she should be compensated to the tune of $100 Million.

  My response: wow! I never thought of Ms. Lohan in reference to this ad until she grabbed some tabloid headlines by filing this suit. This redefines the concept of hubris. Oedipus, the old standard for hubris, pales in comparison to the monumental assessment of self on two levels.

Ms. Lohan is under the delusion that she has become “The Lindsay.”  That most of the people in the civilized world think only of her when they hear that name. That by braving rehab a few times, posing for Playboy and making a series of forgettable teen films she has achieved the status of Madonna or Cher. A bold claim when the only Lindsey who has been in the news lately is Ms. Lindsey Vonn a multiple medal winner in the recent Olympic Games.

I did a little experiment with some friends who play tennis and said, “Hey, how about Lindsay making a comeback?” To a person they all remarked that it would be great to see Ms. Davenport back on the courts. I did the same with some musician friends who thought it would be great to see Lindsey Buckingham back with Fleetwood Mac. In politics Lindsey is a Senator from South Carolina. I know that Ms. Lohan spells her name with an “a” instead of an “e” but I put that down to her undereducated parents. If you have never seen any footage of these two, they are a pair of gems.

Let’s set the name thing aside for a minute and move to point number two. For a minute I will concede Ms. Lohan her point that she is “The Lindsay.” Let’s also concede the point that the folks at the ad agency for E*Trade had some ax to grind with her and intentionally used the name “Lindsay” (Do we know that the baby in the commercial isn’t a “Lindsey” for those who wish to split spelling hairs?) as a disparaging reference to Ms. Lohan. How much is she damaged?

The combined total U.S. gross box office of every film Ms. Lohan has made in the last six years is $28 million less than she is asking in her law suit. Maybe she will use her lawsuit winnings to reimburse the producers of those turkeys. Her top salary demand for any film was $7.5 million and that was in 2004 before she put her career and life into self destruct mode. I am guessing I could get her to do a film tomorrow for a new Kia, a pass to the VIP room at the right Hollywood night club and a few Starbucks gift cards. If this ad has done anything it has helped her sagging fortunes by giving her a way to garner a little free publicity.

Oh yeah before I go, if Ms. Lohan should prevail in her lawsuit I want everyone to know that I will be in court the next day. Among those who know comedy and golf I am universally known as “shankopotamus.”


The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Glenn, That Was a Close One!

March 10, 2010

As a right-wing nut job I am bound by the 11th commandment of Ronald Reagan which is: Never be too harsh on a fellow right-wing nut job. Yesterday I almost had to break that commandment.

As a fan of The Glenn Beck Show” I was a little stunned when two days ago he announced that he was going to devote the entire hour on Tuesday to an interview with Eric Massa, left-wing nut job and serial gropper of male employees.

Massa seemed to be a nut job- full stop! He seemed to me to be a guy who had gone off the rails, forget the political mileage that could be made by his wacky charges. Without any prof he seemed like a guy who was playing a huge game of CYA.

That Glenn would have him on made me thing that he had also gone off the deep end. That the usually funny and informative “Glenn Beck Show” might have jumped the shark.  So I watched the hour just in case Massa said anything that made sense or was provable. For an hour he ranted and huffed but it was all smoke without even the benefit of a mirror. Nothing credible except maybe the “Rham in the Shower,” which I find believable but it was unwitnessed.

 My temperature was rising  and I was  getting tired of Massa’s non-answers to Glenn’s questions while Mr. Beck let Massa do his dance. At the end Mr. Beck apologized to his audience for wasting an hour of our time! That was the only thing worth watching in the entire hour!
