Loathesome comments of Pelosi/Hoyer
Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi/Steny HoyerRegarding your recent comments accusing opponents of government run health care for America of being “un-American,” I find those comments beyond offensive. Coming from you, they are loathsome. Those “un-Americans” are the people you are supposed to be serving. You seek to prevent those “pesky” voters from speaking their minds and getting in the way of your steamroller agenda. Your attitude seems to be: Don’t they know what’s good for them? You should be ashamed.
At the town hall meetings last week rows of seats were roped-off near the front, reserved for ACORN and AARP, friends of the President's healthcare plan (Professionally printed signs can be seen.) Now the democrats condemn strong vocal opposition to the proposed healthcare plan as being "organized" by the right wing, and peopled by unruly and angry mobs, and Nazis bearing swastikas.
Lets talk about being un-American:
Trying to jam a socialized health care system down the throats of Americans, while retaining top shelf coverage for yourselves, your families and your union pals . That seems un-American to me.
Placing a government bureaucrat between people and their doctors. That seems un-American to me.
Promising taxpayers they can keep their own doctors and health plans, while you plan for the opposite. That seems un-American to me.
Forcing seniors into “death planning”at age 65, denying proper treatment and suggesting pain medication as alternative therapy. That seems un-American to me.
Running private medical insurance companies out of business. That seems un-American to me.
Observing signs from one or two crazies among hundreds of thousands of people, then labeling all socialized medicine protesters as Nazis and un-American. That seems un-American to me.
Spending trillions of dollars we do not have, and saddling our children and grandchildren with debt they cannot possibly ever repay, to pay for a plan clearly not designed to help health care, but to “dumb it down” to the same low level for everyone except the elites in Washington and the union workers. That seems un-American to me.
Failing to address the primary issue that is driving the health care crisis - tort reform, because of campaign donations from trial lawyers. That seems un-American to me.
Asking your supporters to “snitch” on anyone disagreeing with the White House party line regarding health care. That seems un-American to me.
Our President telling his critics to, “Shut up and get out of the way.” That seems un-American to me.
Producing far reaching and expensive cap and trade, “stimulus” and other bills, deals made in secret, without considering any amendments or even any input from your opponents, simply because you have substantial majorities in both houses. That seems un-American to me.
Passing legislation consisting of hundreds and hundreds of pages, parts crafted in the middle of the night, which nobody has even had time to read, claiming the need is too urgent to actually read the bills and to know their content. That seems un-American to me.
Passing pork barrel legislation that will benefit your particular district at the expense of all Americans. That seems un-American to me.
Having jack booted, military clad Black Panther thugs manning voting precincts and intimidating voters with billy clubs, then having our Attorney General, Eric Holder, mysteriously drop all charges related thereto without explanation. That seems un-American to me.
Creating a civilian police force, with at least as much firepower as our military, under the sole control of our commander in chief - akin to brownshirts? Isn’t anyone else frightened about this? How long before those identified as fishy comment folks on the White House enemies list are visited in the middle of the night by the new militia to discuss their dissident views. That seems un-American to me.
Picking and choosing which companies will be the beneficiaries of government largesse, saving some with taxpayer money while abandoning others. That seems un-American to me.
Deciding who should and who should not be heading major American corporations, and deciding their salaries. That seems un-American to me.
Loaning banks money to stimulate lending, then not requiring them to make loans, instead watching them swallow up smaller banks with taxpayer money, stifling competition, then not allowing those banks to pay back the money loaned so that government can maintain control over them and their policies. That seems un-American to me.
Providing amnesty to illegal aliens, while not requiring that they assimilate or learn our language and culture simply because they are likely to become democrat voters - printing government forms, voter registration forms and textbooks in foreign languages. That seems un-American to me.
Permitting wholesale election fraud by a non-profit group (ACORN) under the guise of “community organizing”and then rewarding that group with federal tax dollars. That seems un-American to me.
Placing the 2010 census under the control of the White House, and hiring fraud ridden ACORN operatives to do the counting. That seems un-American to me.
Encouraging outfits like ACORN to pressure banks to lower lending standards, enabling people to buy homes they cannot possibly afford, then pressuring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to buy those loans anyway, endangering the financial stability of the entire country, then handsomely rewarding those executives with golden parachutes, and appointing them as advisers and giving them jobs in the Obama administration. That seems un-American to me.
Placing tax cheats in control of our treasury, making tax policy, and writing and implementing our tax and other laws, e.g. Tim Geithner, Charlie Rangel, Kathleen Sebelius, Hilda Solis. That seems un-American to me.
Appointing extremist czars for every job imaginable, at taxpayer expense, with no accountability, no vetting of any kind and no oversight. That seems un-American to me.
Our President and Commander in Chief bowing to the Saudi king. That seems un-American to me.
Embracing Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez, Manuel Zelaya, Fidel Castro, while thumbing your nose at our allies in Iran, Israel, Columbia, Cuba, Honduras. That seems un-American to me.
Apologizing for American “arrogance” on a world apology tour. That seems un-American to me.
Appointing a racist bigot to the Supreme Court. That seems un-American to me.
Congress ordering a new fleet of private jets, and conducting taxpayer funded junkets around the world while asking everyday Americans to tighten their belts. That seems un-American to me.
Gleefully observing the N.Y Times and Pinchy Sulzberger publishing photos of the Abu Gharib frat boy pranks and reveling in the horror of it all while not seeming to mind the willful disclosure of national security secrets, or when American citizens are beheaded on video for all the world to see. That seems un-American to me.
Why weren’t you up in arms at the regular and repeated comparisons of George Bush to Hitler? Why wasn’t that un-American? Why aren’t you up in arms every time any conservative speaker is shouted down on our nation’s college campuses? Why aren’t you up in arms that ROTC and military recruiters are banned from college campuses? The answer is clear; that doesn’t suit your agenda. To you, only disagreement with the socialist/communist agenda is truly un-American. That seems un-American to me.
Why are you so afraid of honest debate. It is what made this country what it is, and that you seek to deny that right to its citizens speaks volumes about your integrity. Those with facts on their side do not shy away from honest debate, but rather welcome it. They cannot lose since the facts are on their side. You are all for free speech so long as you agree with the speaker. That seems un-American to me.
