Drew M over at Ace of Spades (hat tip: Subotai Bahadur, whom I still wish would come over here to write for me) puts it in crystal clear terms:
This is your last chance. If you blow this, I’m out and you need to be destroyed.
What is it? Repeal ObamaCare on Day 1. Don’t worry about replace, don’t worry about anything else. We will do everything we have to drag your sorry asses over the line this fall, including electing Mitt Fucking Romney.
In return this is what you will do:
Instead of adjourning for pictures and tea and cake to celebrate getting your pathetic asses elected to 2 or 6 years on the government teet, you will immediately pass a one line bill that says, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (and whatever statute number has to be included) is hereby repealed.”
That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.
Since Congress meets before Inauguration Day, Obama will still be President. Simply hold the legislation at the desk so the 10 day pocket veto clock doesn’t start. If other parliamentary BS is needed, just do it.
Then as soon as Mitt takes the oath of office, before his speech no one will care or remember, walk the bill up to him at the podium to sign.
If this does not happen, the GOP must be destroyed and a new party built to replace it. We’ve tried the carrot approach (votes, money, volunteers) to change your behavior. Now it’s time to show you the stick.
No more, “oh the other guys are worse” scare tactics. That might be true but it doesn’t mean you are any good.
This is your one job, do it or join the Whig Party in the dustbin of history.
Amen & amen.
I’m voting for Romney now, and I expect him to not only win, but to smash Bambi, and to drag a decisive GOP majority to Washington DC with him.
If they fail, I will have voted for my last Republican.

And it aint Obama.
Since emotions are running a bit high in our beloved nation, and in the Realm, perhaps this will be of use:
Holy Father, You know how divided we have been as a nation on the question of health care as on many other public policy issues. Forgive us where we have failed to explain our neighbors’ actions in the kindest ways, when we let tempers flare and sully each others’ reputations. You have commanded us to pray for all our public servants and so we come to You now putting them all in Your omnipotent hands. We thank you for each branch of our state and federal governments. Grant them Your guidance in these difficult days. Help them to pursue policies that protect the rights of all the citizens of this nation to practice their faith without coercion or interference, and yet give them Your wisdom that together we might find ways to protect the value of all human life and meet the deep needs and persistent challenges before us. Help us as a people to turn to You, to learn from You, to value what You value and to prize what You prize. Without Your blessing, we will surely bring it all to ruin; with Your blessing, we will not fail. We ask all these things in the name of Him who gave His very life in love for us and for all, even Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
While we may oppose the actions of those whom God has placed over us, we are still called to pray that God will grant them the wisdom to be good rulers.

Fox News has just reported that the “individual mandate” portion of Bambicare is constitutional as a tax. John Roberts sided with the leftist pusstards on the decision.
I say now, and for the record – I WILL NOT OBEY THIS.
I am currently covered under my company’s plan. When it goes away – and I guaran-damn-tee you, it will go away – I will not get replacement coverage.
Let me say that again: I will not purchase coverage.
I will not pay any related tax.
I will not pay any penalty.
IRS, you will have to come get me.
If you dare.
Fuck you, Johnita Roberts.
Fuck your wife.
Fuck your kids.
Fuck you, George “Shrubya” Bush, who put the son-of-a-bitch on the Soprano Court in the first fucking place.
And last but not least – fuck the Hell outta you, B. HUSSEIN!!! Obambi.
I. WILL. NOT. OBEY!!!!!
UPDATE: And Denizens, I hate like hell to contradict myself, go hypocritical, make a liar of myself, all that.
But I have no choice. Apologies to the Vicar, the General, Plett, the Lady, La Reina, Mrs. Venomous – everyone.
But as of now – 0930 hours, 6/28/2012 – I am declaring my intention to vote for Willard Mitt Romney for President of the United States of America.
Because, you see, Obambi – I know whose ass to kick, you illegal Kenyan son of a slutty crack whore bitch.

Tyson Gay eased through his first 100-meter qualifying heat in the U.S. Olympic trials Saturday, winning in 10 seconds flat.
Gay, mending from a hip injury that kept him out of action for most of the past year, matched the time he ran in his return in New York earlier this month. That race was into a headwind. This time, on a rainy day in Eugene, he had a slight tailwind.
Justin Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic champion, won his heat in 9.90 seconds, keeping alive his bid to return to the Olympics after missing 2008 because of a doping ban.
And now…the headline:

Re: Official Realm Bible Translation
It seems that my assessment that there would be no Klingon translation of Holy Scripture was in error. Please forgive me. Here is a link to just such a translation. Not being conversant in the Original languages or Klingon, I cannot comment on the accuracy or completeness of this translation.

I had hoped to be a part of the Texas state GOP convention. Alas, they had already had the local caucuses (caucii?) by the time I went to vote in the primary back at the end of May.
Shows you what I get for missing staff meetings.
Now that I find out about part of what went on, I wonder if I even want to vote in the general.
Texas Republicans are touting their success in bringing the factions of their party together last week in Fort Worth to approve a new plank in the party platform aimed at effective changes in immigration policy.
They call their guest worker program the “Texas solution” and say it offers answers instead of “another litany of problems,” said Brad Bailey, a member of the platform subcommittee that drafted the plan.
The proposal would provide a way for illegal immigrants to have legal status — and possibly more important to the party right now, it could pull into Republican ranks conservative Hispanic voters who could not abide the harsh deportation policies of former Republican state platforms.
Under the new, gentler proposal, “We no longer call it ‘illegal immigration,’” said Norman Adams, a Houston insurance broker who co-founded Texans for Sensible Immigration Policy a decade ago. “For the first time, the Republican Party actually offers a solution. In the past our only solution was for them to leave.”
But it’s much easier now! Now that we’ve caved in, that is.
Just think – the Texas Gaggle Of Pusstards have fallen in lockstep with Der Ayatollaher and as much as told a million illegals (for now – five will get you 10 million it’ll be more) “hell, yeah, c’mon in! We’ll find ya jobs! Those tens of millions of unemployed/underemployed American citizens?!?!?! Screw ‘em”
If this is how the GOP “stands up” to the Donks, what the Hell’s the point?

To the Miami Heat and its thousands of excuses for fans:
Congratulations on your second purchase of an NBA Championship. We out here trust you fanboies will get as much joy out of it as you did in 2006, when you purchased Shaquille O’Neal, plus whatever cadre of zebras you needed to see that no one so much as breathed on your honeyboy, Widdle Dway-nee Wade.
Not to mention the fact that Widdle LeBwon couldn’t do shit without a ton of help around him.
And that he still couldn’t get it done last year against Dallas.
But we do hope it will assuage the guilt that you’ll eventually feel someday, knowing that you’ve never won an NBA title, just purchased a couple of them.
Sincerely, The Rest Of The World Out Here That Doesn’t Give Two Shits About You

Let me be perfectly clear. Two wrongs don’t ever make a right. Having said that, this story highlights the fact that when there are no checks on their conduct, government will always go overboard.
What truly concerns me however, is the meekness with which our fellow citizens bow to this intrusion of their rights. Yes it is important to guard the safety of our travellers, and I thank those whose calling is to do that. Such a calling does not give legal or moral authority to treat fellow citizens as criminals for simply buying and using an airline ticket. The fact that so many people accept this is an indication that we are no longer free, and that most of our citizens no longer wish to be free.

Okay, so last week Bambi suffered the absolute ignominy of actually being ASKED AN ACTUAL QUESTION!!!!!! at a press conference.
Boo. Hoo. Fuckin’. Hoo.
And we got the obligatory wringing-of-the-hands-in-mock-angst from none other than Samantha Donaldson, who was notorious for doing it himself to Republican presidents.

Y’know, Denizens, the surprise is not that Rodney King finally kicked the bucket (he was 47).
The surprise is that – given his continued history with drugs & alcohol and making seemingly continuous appearances in the judicial system – it took so long for him to finally go.
(Incidentally, that’s the reason for the category – where else would I put it? I don’t feel like memorializing him, and I don’t hate him at all, so “Good riddance” is inappropriate, as well.)

For obvious reasons…well, they’re obvious if you’ve spent any amount of time here at all…this is not my favorite of days. And hasn’t been for about nine years or so.
Maybe someday it will be again, who knows?
Happy Father’s Day 2012, Denizens.

ITEM: A couple days ago, B. HUSSEIN!!! Obambi accused the Republicans in general (and President Bush in particular of sticking him with a trillion-dollar deficit.
“I love it when these guys talk about debt and deficits,” Obama told supporters in Baltimore. “I inherited a trillion dollar deficit.”
“It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, a martini and all that stuff, then just as you’re sitting down they leave and accuse you of running up the tab,” Obama said.
ITEM: Today, B. HUSSEIN Obambi…stuck someone else with a bill.
Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill.
Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill.
As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.
The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.
I’d use my standard line here, but I might be accused of being…wait for it…RAAAAACIST!!!!!!!!!
Besides…it’s down there in the categories anyway.

Denizens, remember this budding Sith Lord?
Max Page is gonna have open-heart surgery today to replace a heart valve. Afterwards, there’ll be a six-week recuperation period.
Max needs our prayers. Yes – that’s an order.

Wish I could’ve gotten to this yesterday, but there just wasn’t time.
25 years ago yesterday, the great Ronaldus Magnus (a little Rush lingo, there) gave the greatest speech of the 20th century. (Yes, greater than FDR”S “Fear Itself”, and greater than JFK’s “Ask Not”.)
“General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
The last real President this country has had to date.
God rest your soul, President Reagan. Thank you, sir.

And the last word on the glorious Scott Walker victory in Wisconsin comes from this whiny little nadless, needle-dicked pusstard.
“We’re not just disappointed, this is the end of democracy. We just got outspent $34 million to $4 million.
“And because we couldn’t embezzle dues from Repukelican union members for our boy Barrett like we used to, it’s the END OF DEMOCRACY!!!! UNFAIR!!!!! (sob!!!)”
This was the biggest election in America
“…and we just got our socialist asses handed to us! WAAAAAAAAH!!!!!”
and I hope he keep me on tonight because this hurts us all
“…and I need to cement my reputation as the face of the crybaby Demoscum party before my 15 minuts of fame are totally up, dude!!! 14:41, 14:42, 14:43…”
Every single one of you out there in the nation, if you’re watching, democracy died tonight,” an emotional proponent of Scott Walker’s recall told a CNN correspondent in Wisconsin on Tuesday night.
“Because we didn’t get our cookie!!!. BOO HOO HOO HOOO…!!!!
“I’m very emotional because we all had invested in this. This was it. If we didn’t win tonight, the end of the U.S. as we know it just happened. This is it. We just got outspent $34 million to $4 million. And we don’t have any more resource left but the people you see here behind me. And if the people you see here behind me can’t get it done tonight, it’s done. Democracy’s dead,” the man said.
Shorter: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!1!1!ONE!!!!ELEVENTYTEENQUADRILLION!!!!!!!! (schnuffle)
Great Honkin’ Cthulhu, how I do lurrrrve the smell of patchouli-fried libtard crybaby in the morning…
