Scrooge had worked his way up the financial ladder from humble immigrant roots. Born in Glasgow, Scotland he made a living shining boots, and was enraged when a ditchdigger paid him with a US dime. However, the coin inspired him to take a position as cabin boy on a Clyde cattle ship to the... More

    I heard she eats small Mexican babies, pees standing up and may even be an officer of Satan's army. And her soldiers? Millions of clueless Americans who believe her and her healthcare bill benefits America.

    I just don't know how long Reid can resist the pressure to exercise the "nuclear option" and just push the bill through with fewer than 60 votes. I don't see him holding out that long, his recent gambit to kick the can past New Years didn't seem to get much respect from the White House...

    I am trying to make arrangements to get out of this police state and find a free country. I cant stand paying illegal taxes to fund this police state. I predict that the Dems will evetually get the socialized medicine bill passed and then on to the global cap and trade scheme which taxes what people exhale and plants breathe. Say goodbye to the american republic and say hello to the facist police state.

    YH - You are being sucked into the disillusion, man! Wake up! Wake up!

     

    Oh, oh. I just realized that I used a word he could have fun with. Don't do it, YH. This is all just a bad dream. She's not your Moma!

    There once was a girl named Nancy
    Who tried to make health care all fancy.
    Her ideas did seem
    To come from a dream
    Like the one I had every night at the age of 10 after my mom read me a chapter of Alfred Hitchock's "The Birds" as a bedtime story. (True story)

     

    Everything is fine. What could possibly go wrong?

    The way the health care bill was thrown together it almost seems like it came from out of nowhere.

    The health care bill is really a stocking horse for a subrosa attack on our freedoms.

    Yes. It's just the beginning. Next will be either a VAT, Carbon Tax or Cap & trade. Then more control over the Media, especially the news (as if they didn't already control it) and then opinions (i.e., talk radio). If airlines' profits get any worse, they'll bail them out (the big ones) and take them over. Don't even get me started on education and the slant that goes on in the college classrooms. The doctrine will become even more widespread and begin much earlier. And finally, they will create the public security force that BO has talked so much about. There they will be able to really brainwash our kids. How long to I have? How long will this process take?

     

    Okay. I sound a little paranoid here. Hopefully our political system can be straightened out and we will be able to right the course. But when? The sooner the movement starts the better.

    Scrooge: How'd I miss this column all day? Hoard is correct, that chick is hot! And I very much hope soon will be on the hot seat, making her all the hotter.

     

    Mark: Someone find a picture of a big vice with Joe Sixpack's head in it! Scrooge's gem of a picture find is Pelosi's gleeful expression exactly as she tightens the vice, making Joe Sixpack's brains splatter all over the wall of freedom.

    Looking at the pic, I think she would have done better in "Misery" than Kathy Bates. And Kathy did great.

     

    Unfortunately, the movie would have probably had to be re-cast as a documentary film.

    I recall there was a "Six-Million Dollar Man" TV Series starred by Mr. Major. Oh well, our lady speaker of the house would perhaps ascend to that fame of being a "Three Trillion Dollar Woman". Yes, $3T with the T.

     

    You see, she spearheaded the TARP bill which was $700B, only to put millions in bonuses for the Greedy Bankers, the BHO Stimulus bill which was another $878B, and now this - $1.2T so-called health care bill.

     

    So add it up: $(700+878+1200) = $2778B which is ~ $3T, not exactly but close.

     

    I would have more respect for her if she would answer her call for being so altruistic by going back to serve in the soup kitchen in the slumps of San Francisco, CA, rather than mugging around with taxpayers money. You know, be a Bill Gates, create Billions of wealth, set up a Foundation to give it away, rush to Africa to save that continent...Don't mess with other folks money....

    Soup Kitchen...middle class...it's all the same to her now. So really, in her eyes, I'm sure she sees herself as doing great works for the downtrodden.

    Fascism started with Bush. Hopefully there will be some senators who require this plan to make sense. I think there are some holdouts who can modify the plan. All we need is more money going to healthcare.

    Disagree, fascism started with confiscation of the American peoples gold and lots of government controlled programs. SSI included. All under FDR.

     

    Now we have another crises and administration with the same mentality.

     

    Washington is and has been fascist since the Federal govt began taking power from the states and it has occurred under both Demicans and Republicrats.
