I've Got Your Number, Chairman Obama

You can forget all the screeching and babbling from the talking heads on TV. You can forget about the academic eggheads writing book after book that no one reads. You can certainly forget about the lamestream media, which is as useful as a screen door on a submarine. (Or as useless as male nipples, if I'm allowed to recycle a joke.)

None of the above have Chairman Obama figured out like I do. I've got your number, Chairman Obama!

You see, Chairman Obama is nothing more than an amalgam of three leftist theories: Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, Cass Sunstein's Nudge, and the Cloward/Piven strategy. There's no originality of thought to be found here. Every one of his dastardly plots follows this basic pattern:

•Demonize and isolate your opponent. (Alinsky)

•Nudge the people into doing what you want. (Sunstein)

•When the nudging fails, destroy the system. (Cloward/Piven)

I see you remain unconvinced. Unlike Keith Olbermann, I am more than a talentless hack who talks to hear himself talk. I provide facts.

The best example I can give on this is how Obamacareless was inflicted on the United States. Demonizing ? Plenty of it. Nudging ? It was tried and failed. Destruction ? On its way, very, very quickly like an asteroid with Earth's name on it.


"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." --Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals


Back when Obamacareless first reared its socialist, ugly head, Chairman Obama had nothing nice to say about insurance companies and doctors. He told wild tales about doctors amputating the feet of diabetics and removing tonsills for no other motive than money. He also spun yarns about how insurance companies left the helpless to die. Of course, the facts weren't on his side, but who cares about that ? There's wealth that needs to redistributed, after all. Obama also encouraged Princess Nancy, Ruler of The People's Republic of Pelosi, to get in on the act. However, Princess Nancy loves doctors since they have money (and, not to mention, also perform plastic surgery.) and give to political campaigns quite generously. Not willing to slay the goose that lays the golden egg, Her Majesty attacked the grassroots Tea Party Movement that opposed Obamacareless by calling them "astroturf". Like all Obama's other plots and schemes, Obamacareless began with demonization.


"In other words, we argue for self conscious efforts, by institutions in the private sector and also by government, to steer people's choices in directions that improve their lives." -- Richard Thaler and UNELECTED Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein, Nudge


The big nudge of the Obamacareless scam was the the Dreaded Public Option. Under this lie, the Big Mommy Regime would provide an alternative to private health insurance by running its own health care company, despite the fact that the federal government can't deliver mail or count votes accurately. Naturally, the Right threw a hissy fit and the Public Option died a horrible death at the hands of Joe Lieberman, also known as The Only Liberal I Have Any Respect For. Despite the fact that the United States is trillions of dollars in debt, let's take the money aspect out of the Public Option. The only reason why it was on the table was to nudge the proles towards government run health care. The Public Option would obviously be cheaper than private sector insurance, so companies would start dumping their employees on it. Within a couple of years, Big Insurance would have been gone like the Dodo Bird. Luckily for us all, the nudging failed and Chairman Obama found himself demonized by the affair, much like the doctors and insurance companies he slandered.


"How can the poor be organized to press for relief from poverty? How can a broad-based movement be developed and the current disarray of activist forces be halted? These questions confront, and confound, activists today. It is our purpose to advance a strategy which affords the basis for a convergence of civil rights organizations, militant anti-poverty groups and the poor. If this strategy were implemented, a political crisis would result that could lead to legislation for a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty." --Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven in their infamous article "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty"


When the Public Option went belly up, Chairman Obama and his socialist allies in Congress were in a fix. This was a humiliation that was not to be taken lightly. Demonization had failed as had nudging. It was time to overload the system, as the communist lovebirds Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven had written about in 1966. When the final draft of Obamacareless was voted on, it had many booby-traps in it for private sector insurance like kids staying on their parents' insurance until they turn 26, no preexisting conditions could bar one from purchasing health insurance, and many other goodies. All of that on paper looks really, really good, but like everything else Chairman Obama does, it secretly sucks. The sad reality is the fact that these goodies were shoved into Obamacareless to purposely force insurers to raise their premiums. Uh-oh. We have a problem, Houston. Insurance costs were supposed to go down, not fly into hyperspace. Chairman Obama will then be "forced" to do the only thing he knows how to do: grow government. To alleviate the crisis he created, our Dear Leader will be "forced" to take drastic steps. In other words, the Public Option will be back from the dead, and then after Big Insurance assumes room temperature along with our personal freedom, single payer health care will become the norm in America.

Did you ever wonder why I end each column with "God help us all" ?

Now you know.

(Hey, I could have been a real smart ass and said that I know Obama's number and that number is 666. Who says I have no restraint ?)
