Meanwhile, in DC

While they were hoping we weren’t looking, Weepy Boner and Eric Cunthair have been busy writing the script for a nice bit of Kabuki theater that will ensure that Obamacare gets fully funded.

Let me break down their plan for you. House leadership will pass a continuing resolution in the House. It will fund Obamacare. Cantor and Sessions will also make sure a separate resolution to defund Obamacare gets passed that would amend the CR to defund Obamacare if the Senate votes for it, which they of course will not. These two separate votes will be combined with great fan fare to make it look like House Republicans are voting for a CR that defunds Obamacare. But the Senate will pass the CR that funds Obamacare, sending it to the President, and ignore the defund resolution.

Obamacare will be fully funded, but the GOP will get to tell its voters that it supported defunding Obamacare. Yes, they did. But only because they rigged the defunding effort to fail. This is a head pat to conservatives designed to screw them and the nation at a time more and more Americans are seeing employers shove them to part time work, cutting spousal benefits, or refusing insurance altogether because of Obamacare.

And they’re counting on the voters being too damn stupid to see it for what it is. Sadly, they may just be right.

Now get back to work, America, you have taxes to pay and votes to throw at Boner and Cunthair so they can stay in office and maintain a steady supply of nose candy and nubile interns on your dime. And Obamacare? Seriously, you dumb vote cattle, they’ve already made sure that they are exempt from that, so why would they care?

Now go enjoy your beets and gruel, peasants.

Thatisall.

    Good Lord, these asshats need to be confronted and say..” Either you are an incompetant failure or you are lying to us? Which is it and your only choice at this point is Tar and Feather and immediate resignation, or my friend Mr. Rope assembled to Mr. Tree, which will it be?

    Oh, FOIST!!

    RE-ELECT NOBODY!

    Time to send these asswagons packing. They haven’t impeached Obambi, and for that matter they need to be recalled/impeached/worked over themselves.

    And people wonder why I dwell on Politics. It’s the voters, stupid!!
    (Or, is that, “It’s the stupid voters!!” ? Either way, we’re screwed until the system collapses and we can rebuild… And, yes, we can rebuild.)

    So….does RedState still consider itself a Conservative AND Republican site? They may be experiencing a little cognitive dissonance on this one, then.

    Every day for them must be like that scene from Real Genius:

    Lazlo Hollyfeld: Well, how’d you do?

    Chris Knight: How’d I do? I passed! But I failed! Yeah!

    Lazlo Hollyfeld: Well, then I’m happy and sad for you.

    They can keep the beets.

    Time to enrich their diet with some iron, too 😉

    Off topic, but I know some of y’all are friends with Draco at facebook, and I think y’all should know where things stand.

    This past Monday, I went to Draco’s page to read any further updates his wife had posted, only to find myself deleted from his friends list. In a way, she tried to cut off my last tie to him right before she was to terminate life support. I am no longer able to read his wall, nor can I post a final goodbye to him. Ironically, my sister, Draco’s ex-wife, is still on the list, along with the rest of my family. I was heartbroken over being unable to write to him one last time, but I am consoled that I can do it at the blogs.

    On Tuesday, his wife decided to terminate all, and yes, I do mean ALL life support for Draco. It is a decision I would never wish on anyone. Also, she opted to not have a trach or a peg done on him, which means no feeding or hydration. Since she had suspended LS, the doctor gave the order to have him moved from Neuro ICU to another floor, which enraged her, but there is no longer anything that ICU can do for him (IMO, she wanted to still control family access, which she can’t do on the other floor).

    Last night, she posted another update, which luckily my daughter can still access, so I was able to read it. In it she was complaining of how little treatment my Draco was receiving, how she felt pressured to move him to a hospice, and how she has unequivocally told the docs NO, because you DON’T TREAT A VETERAN THIS WAY!! She said plenty more, but in essence was trying to portray the hospital and doctors and nurses as being negligent in their care. By law a doctor MUST tell the next-of-kin EXACTLY what “terminating life support” means. SHE HERSELF chose NOT to have the doctor put a trach and peg for him. Which means she is either wilfully stupid and didn’t pay attention to what the doc explained, or she is drumming up support for her plight as she readies to sue both hospitals and the Army. Unfortunately, she herself admitted on several posts that she made the decision to terminate, and that it was just a matter of time. She also admitted choosing not to trach and peg him.

    And so we wait. Hubby’s twin is trying to talk to her to explain what she needs to do in order for Draco to live. I don’t think he will succeed. Today he called to let us know Draco is having a low-grade fever and they don’t give him much time, probably won’t live through the weekend. Thank you all for your prayers, good vibes, thoughts and karma. Draco sure appreciates them, this I do know. I felt the need to warn y’all about Draco’s wife. She has made every effort to curtail family from seeing him, and has threatened to bar his parents completely if we so much as question the veracity of her updates. So please, my dear friends, take what she writes with a grain of salt. And keep praying for our Rottie.

    News about a brother or sister is never off-topic. Ever.

    With that out of the way, what a tragedy and what a clusterfnjord.

    If you make the decision to terminate, and that’s a decision that I don’t wish on anybody, you have got to know what “terminate” means.

    And I find it immeasurably sad that she’s cutting off friends and loved ones like that. Not “just” because Draco deserves better, but also because those very same people are the ones who could and will help her through the horribly hard times ahead.

    Finally, as a Christian, although I do find her behavior wholly irrational, I also humbly admit that I have no way of putting myself in her shoes right now and thus cannot begin to imagine the pain, confusion and frustration she is going through. With that much pressure on you, it’s very hard, if not impossible, to behave rationally.

    So I pray for her as well as brother Draco, I pray that G-d may reach her heart and not only provide her with peace and strength, but also the wisdom to not alienate those who would do anything to help her get through this whole.

    FrJim, Imperial Chaplain growls and barks:

    Seems almost superfluous, given the death of Draco and comments about same.

    But with regard to the article in question, the RINOs are sealing their own fate here. We Conservatives get the picture: we aren’t welcome in the Republican Party under the neo-Statists.

    Okay.

    Try to win without us.

    I’m done. Not ONE DIME or ONE MORE VOTE.
