Item:  A Gallup poll taken the day after the Imperial Socialist Congress™ passed BambiCare seemed to suggest a majority was close to favoring it.

Nearly half of Americans give a thumbs-up to Congress’ passage of a healthcare reform bill last weekend, with 49% calling it “a good thing.” Republicans and Democrats have polar opposite reactions, with independents evenly split.

Item:  Maybe it’s the way they phrased the original question – or perhaps it’s now starting to sink into the minds of the American people just what a PigInAPoke™ this is gonna turn out to be.  But they don’t seem to be too enthusiastic about it today.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the health care overhaul signed into law last week costs too much and expands the government’s role in health care too far, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, underscoring an uphill selling job ahead for President Obama and congressional Democrats.

Those surveyed are inclined to fear that the massive legislation will increase their costs and hurt the quality of health care their families receive, although they are more positive about its impact on the nation’s health care system overall.

The GOP still needs to play this right, but the Donks – assuming  there will be elections in November (which is still a ginormous if), are beginning to realize they may have just signed their death warrant.

Schweet.  Just.  Effin’.  Schweet.

Nothing tonight, guys.  Little under the weather – 10 days & counting, kinda hitting a wall here.

Maybe tomorrow.

A friend of mine from a previous job career counts as one of his family friends one Erykah Badu.  (For the Uninitiated™ Erykah Badu is a semi-well-known rhythm-and-blues/soul/rap singer/crooner/hip-hop diva.

And she’s just shamed the hell outta my friend – not to mention her family – by doing this.

A City of Dallas spokesman said Erykah Badu broke the law by filming a music video in downtown Dallas in which she strips and feigns being shot in Dealey Plaza.

City officials had no immediate comment on the content of the video – either the nudity or the clear references to the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy.

But whatever she chose to put in her new video, Badu – a Dallas native and renowned graduate of the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts – should have gotten a permit before filming it, said City of Dallas spokesman Frank Librio.

“All commercial film/video or photo shoot projects must be permitted through the City of Dallas Office of Special Events/Film Coordinators,” Librio said in a written statement. “The production company that produced this video never contacted the city to seek the proper permits. This is known as ‘guerrilla filming’ where production companies circumvent the proper permitting procedures and usually shoot these scenes in one take, knowing that if they are discovered they would face arrest and/or penalties.”

Now, should you have the stomach to go seek out the video and view it (I have – and quite honestly, it isn’t that good), you might notice that she did this in full view of regular Dallas citizens.  Men, women…and children.

That’s right, sportz fanz.  Erykah Badu did herself a little striptease for all the nice folks in downtown Dallas.  Without so much as a cover charge, or even the strip club tax the Texas Supreme Court’s looking at right now.

Sad, huh?

And y’know…the really  sad thing is that she’ll probably win some sort of award for the video.  If nothing else, she’ll win one for sticking it to whitey, aka Dallas city government.  Little black girls – and little white ones, and Asian ones, and Hispanic ones too – will, sadly, look up to her as some sort of role model, instead of the two-bit stripper she’s turned out to be.

It’s just another sign that our society and culture has been flushed down the shitter.  And at some point, He who has not turned one blind eye to us, will have had enough, and we will reap the whirlwind.

(Hat tip to Michelle, of course.)

Item:  A couple of weeks ago, the Mickey Mouse outfit known as ESPN was donning the kneepads for the Ayatollah as only they knew how – by having him participate in March Madness bracket-mania.  (They even have a video of him doing it, if you have the stomach for it – I know I  don’t.)

Perhaps they were swayed by the fact that he correctly guessed that North Carolina would win it all last year.  (Really not much of a guess – if you  were officiating games under the threat of The World’s Biggest College Hoops Pussy™, Tyler Hansbrough, pitching a fit everytime you called him for something, you’d give them a free pass, too.)

Item:  Bambi’s proven to be just as inept at picking college hoops this year as he’s been recently at picking political candidates.  Butler & W. Virginia made sure Saturday that his jugeared ass done got shut out.

President Barack Obama went 0 for 2 in the NCAA tournament Saturday when Kentucky and Kansas State lost in the regional finals, knocking out his two remaining picks for the Final Four.

In his ESPN.com bracket, Obama predicted that Kansas, Villanova, Kentucky and Kansas State would reach the Final Four. Kansas and Villanova were upset in the second round, then Kentucky and Kansas State went down Saturday.

All together now:

Denizens, the following is being republished as a public service.  Links, etc, have been updated to reflect the current year.

As y’all are probably aware, tonight at 2030 hours (a little military/police/fire lingo, there) we’re all supposed to turn all our lights off for one hour.  Several cities (one of which will, in all probability, be Dallas), are planning to participate.

But not this King & Tyrant™.

MERLIN:  You’re not a king & tyrant anymore.

KORRIOTH:  You’re not even a King & Tyrant™, either.

MERLIN:  That’s what I said!

OZY MCCOOL:  No, you said “king & tyrant”

K’HADIBAK’H:  As in, just an ordinary king and an ordinary tyrant.

VENOMOUS:  Guys…

T-BONE MCMANX:  And as we all know, His Snarkiness is neither an ordinary king, nor an ordinary tyrant.

VENOMOUSGuys…

SUPREME GENERAL RAYEGUN:  He may be a particularly piss-poor king and a tyrant with pathetic delusions of godhood…

KORRIOTH:  …but he’s no ordinary king & tyrant.

VENOMOUSHEY!!!!!

ALL

VENOMOUS:  I haven’t written the script to the next installment of “One Of Our Klingons Is Missing” yet.  Heads could  roll, y’know.

ALL:  Eeeeeeeep!

See what I gotta put up with around here?

Anyway, where were we?  Ah, yes…

At 2030 hours tonight, every light in My Humble Abode™, every computer, every monitor, every kitchen appliance, every fan, the central heater (it is  going to get down in the 30s 40s here tonight), every gadget I currently have plugged in – if it pulls wattage in my house, it’s on and running tonight at that time.

Y’see, I haven’t forgotten my life’s work – pissing off the Left as much as I possibly can.  And if I can tell the Greentards, symbolically or otherwise, to take Mommy Gaia and go shove her up all their swishy asses, I’m absolutely going to take the opportunity to do so.

And I hope to Cthulu some fucking tree-hugging faggot just tries  to get in my face about it tonight.

Please, chickenshit Greenies.  I fucking dare  you.

Denizens, some of you may recall where I – ah – took a black-robed star-chamber tyrantess (tyrantess?) to task for daring to tell the sovereign town of Farmers Branch, TX, that she  ran the town, not them.

Well, the Stupid Cunt™ went and did it again on Wednesday.

For the second time, a federal judge has declared unconstitutional a Farmers Branch ordinance banning illegal immigrants from renting in the city.

U.S. District Judge Jane Boyle of Dallas ruled Wednesday that the ordinance was an attempt to enforce U.S. immigration laws – something the judge said only the federal government can do.

The judge also issued a permanent injunction to stop Farmers Branch from enforcing Ordinance 2952.

And it’s just as legitimate now as it was then.  Which is to say, not very damned much.

Mayor Tim O’Hare, the driving force behind the ordinances, said he wants to appeal.

Mayor O’Hare, I wouldn’t bother.  The tin-horned fucksticks aren’t going to rule in your favor, no matter how right you are.

Instead, I’d just ignore the ruling and enforce 2952 anyway.  Make the apartment complexes abide by the will of the people.  Those that cooperate get slightly more leeway on, say, city inspections.

Those that don’t?  Throw the book at them.  Right down to the tiniest little crack in a foundation – cite the hell outta them for it.

And recruit some volunteers, for when Cheetah Jane decides to throw some US Marshals at you.  Defend yourselves & Farmers Branch.

IYKWIMAITYD™.

Bricks have been going through windows in response to the Imperial Socialist Congress™ forcing BambiCare down our throats.

In what seems like a response, some cowardly little pussy put a bullet through Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) campaign office window.

(Small caliber, probably, to match the pussy’s dick size.)

Lock & load, Denizens.  It’s beginning.

(Hat tip Susannah over at Redstate.)

Prior to the Demoscum ripping our rights to shreds Sunday night, Al-Obambi apologist pussy Widdle Davey “Poofter” Plouffe got his ass handed to him by Karl Rove.

We are talking Jim Ross-screamin’ “What an ass-whippin’!!!  What a Texas-sized ass-whippin’!!!” proportions here.  Rove the Magnificent Bastard™ was Stone Cold to Poofie’s Eric Bischoff at No Way Out  2002 (for reference’s sake, if you want to see what a squash that was, go here.)

It was a thing of beauty to behold.  So let’s look at it again. 

_____________________________________________________





Denizens, I really don’t feel much like writing tonight, so the day’s Grab-Baggery™ comes from commenter Terry in Alaska off of this entry on Riehl’s site.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

_____________________________________________________





The beautiful & talented Michelle reported late Sunday evening that Marjorie “I Creamed My Panties Over Stupak, Waaaaaaah!!!” Dannenfelcher and the rest of the bitches over at the Susan B. Anthony’s List  responded to the caving of Bartleby Stupid Stupak Stupid’s cave-in to the Ayatollah by…stripping him of his “Defender Of Life” award, which was to be awarded to him this coming Wednesday.

Well.  That’ll show him.

Not that what you’re about to read below the fold had anything to do with it, but once news of the turncoat’s el foldo  act became public knowledge, it hearkened me back to November, when I wrote these words:

But what the pro-life movement has done – if it has anywhere near the influence it claims to have – is to hand over one-sixth of the economy to Jugears McHopenchange and the rest of the Al-Obambi Amer-Islamic Communist regime.

Here’s the thing: By passing the Stupid Stupak amendment, Republicans – no doubt under at least some pressure from Majorie Dannenfelser and the bimbos at SFA – and 64 supposedly pro-life Demoscum gave enough Imperial Socialist Congresscritters sufficient cover to justify voting for the entire HR3962 package.

The bill’s final House margin: Five votes (220-215).

The kicker: Without the Stupak amendment, HR3962 most likely goes down to defeat…and there are some in the know who were of the opinion that had that been the case, socialized medicine would have been dead for the next ten (10) years.

Those of you who know me, know  what’s coming.

So, with the news of Bartlby Stupid’s flip-flop now complete, I just had  to write Marjorie Dannenfelcher and remind  her of what she and her single-issue biz-notches have wrought.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

_____________________________________________________





Denizens, today is the vote in the Imperial Socialist Congress™ over “mandatory” healthcare coverage.  (And I put it in sneer quotes, because even if it does  pass, I’ve already declared I won’t obey it.)

Not to be too melodramatic about it, but today is a watershed date for our Republic.  We’ll find out today just how close we are to civil war.

I don’t exactly have my hopes up.

UPDATE:  According to Riehl, little Bartie Stupid Stupak, the whole linchpin of our stand to try to kill the bill, has caved on the promise of an executive order from Bambi.

Remember the name, Denizens.  Remember his name, along with Ben “Cornhusker Kickback” Nelson, Mary “Louisana Purchase” Landrieu, Marcy Kaptur and a host of other supposedly “pro-life” Demoscummic sellouts.

Lock and load.*

* Your ballots, of course. 

_____________________________________________________





Denizens, mark the date & time.

I have done it.  I have accomplished what I would not have thought possible, and had – quite honestly – been told I’d never be able to do.

I have persuaded Mrs. Venomous to lunch with me at Hooters.

ALL SIX BILLION PEOPLE ON PLANET EARTH

Believe it.  I have done crossed the effin’ Rubicon, biz-notches.

MERLIN:  Uh, m’lord, I do not think that word means what you think it means.

VENOMOUS:  Don’t give a shit.  It sounds cool.

MERLIN:  Yes, m’lord.

_____________________________________________________





Awright, so I’m reading everything I can about all the post-Constitution shredding (when I’m not coughing up a lung and Mrs. Venomous isn’t  issuing loud sighs trying to prod me to go to bed at this un-Cthulu-y hour (2:45 am as I write this)), and I come upon this analysis by J.E. Dyer over at HotAir.

What faces us come Monday is the question of what to do about the historic decision that, to all appearances, will go the wrong way this weekend.

[...]

It’s essential to be disciplined and non-violent, but I’m not really worried about that. The people who are galvanized now are America’s already-disciplined core: the hardworking people who spend no time complaining about what’s not being done for them, because they spend most of their time making America go. I have no fear that we are an unruly mob. (emphasis mine)

And I start thinking, “Why the hell not?  Our Constitution has been openly pissed on  by Communist bastards who don’t even give a shit any longer about trying to conceal who & what they are, our freedoms are in the most danger, possibly since the origins of our great nation – and you, Dyer, are still wringing your hands in quivering angst about civility?!?!?!

Then I dive into the comments and I get this snot-nose-in-air rejoinder in response from some Caspar-Milquetoast named Cylor:

Thank you for observing this, it’s an extremely vital and welcome change of focus from the kind of moral-equivalency lecturing too many on our side seem to reflexively indulge in.

Good.  Gawd.  Almighty.  Great.  Honkin’.  Cthulu.

We’re all about to become subjects  as opposed to citizens – at least those of us who aren’t going to become enemies-of-the-fucking-state, and all you pussies  can think about is keeping a stiff fucking upper lip?!?!?!

The Demoscum have brought tire irons to kneecap all 300 million of us, and all you fucking little douchebags can do is whimper “Please, sir, don’t hurt us too badly”?!?!

FUCK YOU.

Keep me out of your little tea-party (small “t” and small “p”).

I aim to misbehave, and I aim to disobey.

Better to die on our feet than live on our knees.

Get ready, Denizens.  It gets bumpy from here.

The beautiful & talented Michelle is reporting that the lower chamber of the Imperial Socialist Congress has authorized Shrieker Of The House™ San Fran Nan Piglousi to finish ripping the United States Constitution to shreds by employing the Slaughter Solution, aka Demon Pass Deem-and-Pass Demon Pass, to ram the upper chamber’s version of HealthScare down the American People’s collective throat, should it be necessary.

For my part, I do hereby declare, here and now, that I will not comply with this 2,000-page piece-of-excrement excuse-for-a-bill, should Bambi sign it.

But congratulations, Demoscum bastards.  You have just taken one giant step towards the Point Of No Return™.

The Can™ has been grasped by the handle.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

_____________________________________________________





If I went over the Bret Baier interview with the Ayatollah with a fine-toothed comb, I could probably get a few dozen posts just from the resulting fisking.

But I have neither the time, nor the patience, nor even the attention span for that  (Hey, maybe that’s the ADHD kicking in.  Is that a pre-existing condition?)  So I’m going to take one part of it, and rip it to shreds.  (The transcript of it is here, BTW.)

I’ve got the exact same e-mails, that I could show you, that talk about why haven’t we done something to make sure that I, a small business person, am getting as good a deal as members of Congress are getting, and don’t have my insurance rates jacked up 40 percent? Why is it that I, a mother with a child with a preexisting condition, still can’t get insurance?

Y’know, I’m getting pretty damned tired of this “oh, I’ve got a pre-existing condition I can’t get insurance” whine I keep hearing.

It’s bullshit.  And I’m living proof of it.

As you know, Denizens – that is, if you’re not a member of the Uninitiated™ – I contracted type-II diabetes in 1995.  It’s my death sentence – at some point, I will die from some medical complication that can be traced back to this disease.  It’s about as pre-existing a condition as you can possible get – at least, since 1995.

Since I became a diabetic, I have changed jobs five times.  Four of those changes involved companies which offered health insurance to its employees.  (The fifth one was the preceding one from what I have now, and that was as the next step up from being a pure contractor – no bennies whatsoever.)

I have never  had any problem getting health coverage.  Ever.

Nor do I think I’m the exception – otherwise, why have I never even been called for a pre-coverage physical?

Now maybe there are some  medical maladies which insurance companies won’t cover pre-existing – but then, insurance companies are businesses, too.  They have to make money, just like the companies for which you & I slave our asses off.

So you’ll excuse me if I think the meme about “pre-existing conditions” is nothing but a bunch of hooey.  At least partially, anyway.
