Just A Retired Thinker

A recent Blog by B. York asks why democrats are pushing forward on healthcare when they know that it is not liked by the American people?

The question was put to a Democratic strategist who asked to remain anonymous. Yes, Democrats certainly understand that voters don't like the current bills, he said, and they are fully aware they will probably pay a price next year. But they have found a way to view going ahead anyway as the logical thing to do, at least in their eyes. He said that you have to look at the issue from three different Democratic perspectives: the House of Representatives, the White House and the Senate.

"In the House, the view of [California Rep. Henry] Waxman and [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi is that we've waited two generations to get health care passed, and the 20 or 40 members of Congress who are going to lose their seats as a result are transitional players at best," he said. "This is something the party has wanted since Franklin Roosevelt." In this view, losses are just the price of doing something great and historic. (The strategist also noted that it's easy for Waxman and Pelosi to say that, since they come from safely liberal districts.)

"At the White House, the picture is slightly different," he continued. "Their view is, 'We're all in on this, totally committed, and we don't have to run for re-election next year. There will never be a better time to do it than now.'"

"And in the Senate, they look at the most vulnerable Democrats -- like [Christopher] Dodd and [Majority Leader Harry] Reid -- and say those vulnerabilities will probably not change whether health care reform passes or fails. So in that view, if they pass reform, Democrats will lose the same number of seats they were going to lose before."

All those scenarios have a certain logic (even if the Senate calculation undercounts the number of potentially vulnerable Democrats). But each scenario is premised on passing an unpopular bill that hurts the party. Even if there's a strategic rationale for doing it, why are Democrats dead-set on hurting themselves?

"Because they think they know what's best for the public," the strategist said. "They think the facts are being distorted and the public's being told a story that is not entirely true, and that they are in Congress to be leaders. And they are going to make the decision because ___dammit, it's good for the public."

Of course, going forward has turned out to be harder than many Democrats thought. And now, with various proposals lying wrecked along the road, the true believers are practicing what the strategist calls "principled damage control."

But still, does it make sense? In the end, perhaps the most compelling explanation for Democratic behavior is that they are simply in too deep to do anything else. "Once you've gone this far, what is the cost of failure?" asks the strategist.

At that point -- Republicans will love this -- he compared congressional Democrats with robbers who have passed the point of no return in deciding to hold up a bank. Whatever they do, they're guilty of something. "They're in the bank; they've got their guns out. They can run outside with no money, or they can stick it out, go through the gunfight, and get away with the money."

That's it. Democrats are all in. They're going through with it. Even if it kills them.

Propaganda is in full mode by the Obama government and his henchmen, with the aid of the adoring liberal media who refuse to print the whole truth for the public. They are masterful in their various uses of propaganda. In order for America to understand what is going on citizens must become efficient in looking through the fog of propaganda to see the real story. Therefore, I am going to start printing on this web site a primer on Propaganda so that you will see the tricks that the Obama administration and the liberals in congress with the aid of the liberal news media are using to pull the wool over the publics eyes.

The Healthcare bill, cap and tax, and all the huge spending plans are all part of the big plan for America. This plan was stated by President Obama while campaigning for the office of president. During that time Obama stated that there would be a huge change for America and he is now attempting to put that plan into operation. However, a lot of that plan is hidden from view while vast amounts of propaganda is placed into the media so that citizens will be confused and under control while this plan is put into place by the liberal congress.

Citizens must stay alert because we will not recognize America after the socialists are finished with their plan!!! We must get out the vote in 2010 and make sure that the socialist democrats are not in office after we all vote. This means that we have to organize groups and educate ourselves about the various techniques of propaganda and use these along with the techniques that were used by the community organizers.

Tea party groups are meeting in our city watch the paper for those meetings and make plans to attend. Remember if we set and do nothing then we will not win this battle for our country. The socialists have the means to turn this country into a modern day serfdom so make plans to get out the vote in 2010. Please contact me if you need help and tell people to check my web site.

America start thinking about what we can do to stop Obama’s train from completing its trip to destroy our country!!!!! There are many things that we can do as a nation. First and most important we can unite as concerned citizens and form groups that have as their main objective the goal of stopping the Obama train NOW!!!! We also must stop the formation of a 'BIG TENT' that will house conservatives with conservative or moderate democrats,because democrats will remain liberals no matter what tent you place them in!!!

I would urge you to start using Obama’s Community Organizers as a guide and use their tricks and traps against the socialists in our government. You can find information about these groups by going online to Search the website for these groups and learn about them and start forming your own community organizer groups to become activists and help take back our country!!! You can also watch Glenn Beck on Fox News Channel because he is going to show us how to organize, demonstrate and react in a way that will start the socialists heads spinning!!!! Glenn will use most of 2010 to set the stage for his “Plan To Take Back America” and he will have several meetings in cities across America. Finally, sometime in August in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial Glenn plans to stage a massive gathering of concerned citizens.

Citizens must come together and stop this Socialist Democratic Party from destroying our country. George Soros has taken over the Democratic Party and there are very few conservative democrats left. The radical liberals are not concerned about the middle class or the lower class or any class. They are only concerned about power and control and they will destroy America if they must in order to get what they want. It does not matter to them what the citizens want so it is up to us to get rid of them. If you need help in starting your groups please don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail. Several have already contacted me with requests for information. I am going to contact Glenn Beck to see if he can hold one of his upcoming meetings somewhere in the area and will let you know the results of that request. Check my website for future information.

Just A Retired Thinker

Socialist Propaganda is now very evident on most T.V. News Shows. ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, NPR, CNN, and even the Weather Channel are all following the socialist and liberal view and not even trying to hide this fact. It appears that they believe that the public masses can not think for themselves so they, the Main Street Media, are doing a public service by thinking for their viewers.

Apparently most,if not all, of the people who continue to watch these news sources need this information. However, this provides the liberal media with a means to exploit those who are not prepared to think for themselves. The American people must wake up and understand that what they are viewing is nothing more than social propaganda because only one view is presented and that is the liberal view!!! If you want to become informed about what is really happening I would urge you to view the Fox News Chanel or the Internet sites that I have posted on my web site at

The American people have to understand that those who write TV commercials are not the only experts with skills in perception management! These other experts all have a deep understanding of the methods of Social Propaganda and in today's world the liberals don't hesitate to use these skills. Everyone must understand that a persons perception of things around him/her is their reality. These Socialists are attempting to alter perceptions in order to change reality. If we don't stay alert then they will win and they will "Fundamentally change America". Have you heard this expression before?

Light At The End of the Tunnel?

Are we approaching a point in time where the American people are able to breathe easier about healthcare? Yes, but only if they continue to write letters, e-mail, or call their representatives in both houses of congress. If everyone decides that they can take a break and not continue with their current efforts then we will lose our battle to stop this hideous healthcare plan.

The Marxists will think that we have given up and continue with their efforts to pass this plan through congress! We can not stop right now, instead we must double our efforts because the moderate democrats believe that as a result of November 3rd’s election results they will also lose their reelection attempt’s if they vote for this plan! Unless seniors continue to make a loud noise then they will lose this battle and as a result will see huge cuts in Medicare!

The next battle will be to stop the cap and tax bill that congress is working on because that terrible bill will make our utility bills go up because all of the energy taxes will be passed on to consumers. The energy experts have predicted that these casts could go up 200 % and may go even higher! It seems as if these social democrats want to take us all down so they can lift up everyone to the same level and have control over everything in America. If you think things are bad now wait until the socialists get finished with us!!!!

Please check out the socialists that are planning our future for us at This group, led by George Soros, hates America and all that it stands for and wants to replace our Democracy with a Marxist Government!! Unless we get rid of all the social democrats in congress, then they will succeed in changing our form of government. These shadow groups have taken over most of the democratic party with the aid of George Soros’s billions of dollars.

Help keep America strong and free by checking out who the social democrats are and vote them all out of office. There are good and decent representatives that deserve your vote and will do a better job! This means that you must research each candidate to see if they are progressive in their thinking because that will alert you to a socialist candidate!!!!! You must also look at republican candidates as well because some of them are progressive in their thinking and we must not support them.

New Medical Tax

According to Dick Morris President Obama is planning to reduce the cost of medical care by taxing it! This new medical device tax is very troubling since it will be affecting those that can least afford it or survive it. As more details of the health care bills emerge, the more they seem to be over the top.

The Senate Finance Committee bill includes a broad provision taxing all manner of medical devices. This tax includes such things as pacemakers, stints, artificial heart valves, defibrillators, automated wheelchairs, mechanized artificial limbs, replacement hips and knees, surgical gurneys, laparoscopic equipment, and the like. It appears that senior citizens will again suffer most from this hideous Healthcare Plan that is about to be forced upon us.

Most groups that met with this Whitehouse had their chance to make a deal with this band of elitist robbers. But, unlike all those other groups, the medical device industry refused the deal. This posture enraged the tyrants in the White House who vowed to punish the industry with cuts imposed by Congress. The result was a decision by the revenue-hungry Senate Finance Committee to extract billions in funds from the industry.

Mr. Morris suggests that the legislation does not work like a sales or excise tax. Rather it follows the model of the punitive tobacco settlement imposed on cigarette companies in the 90s. It assesses an industry-wide payment which firms must make in proportion to their market share. It bars them from passing along the cost of the assessment by charging more for certain basic products, but allows them to raise the price of others to raise the funds for the fee.

So, the result will be that virtually every piece of advanced surgical equipment will be subject to a price increase to meet the levy from Washington. No matter that these devices often make the difference between life and death and that, in effect, taxing them raises the cost of vital treatments. The vengeful White House will have its pound of flesh from the medical device industry for daring to be independent and to refuse to knuckle down to Administration pressure!

This tax, imposed in a spirit of haughty arrogance, falls on totally inappropriate objects. Valves, prosthetic limbs, pacemakers, hearing aids, and such are essential therapies that make life longer, better, and less painful. To tax these vital devices makes no sense. Except, in the world of special interest group politics, that grips this take-no-prisoners and show-no-mercy White House.

The most recent Gallup Poll reflected that 49% of respondents said they believed that the Obamacare plan will increase their health care costs. Only about 20% said it would lower them. It is taxes like these that substantiate this kind of concern and as more and more facts are learned then more people will be opposed to the new version of the healthcare plan.

Seniors must remain alert because this new plan as I indicated will be hurt the most. Please check the web site for a better representation and health insurance for retirees. If you have AARP insurance then you will find ASA is a better deal!!

The next part of Obama’s Plan for the serfdom!

Obama poised to cede sovereignty, according to Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change skeptic and a British Lord , who gave a presentation at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. on 10/14. He indicated that we were once a “beacon of freedom” to the world. In this speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty, scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009. He implied that this treaty would give our sovereignty over to the UN!

Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth” from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected.

Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about the myth of global warming. Americans need to stand up, or it’s over. This great experiment of freedom and Democracy that we like to call the U S of A could be reduced to third world status within our lifetimes. Watt’s Up With ‘That has more:

Lord Monckton received a standing ovation and took a series of questions from members of the audience. Among those questions many were relevent to the forthcoming Copenhagen treaty:

Question: The current administration and the Democratic majority in Congress has shown little regard for the will of the people. They’re trying to pass a serious government agenda, and serious taxation and burdens on future generations. And there seems to be little to stop them. How do you propose we stop Obama from doing this, because I see no way to stop him from signing anything in Copenhagen. I believe that’s his agenda and he’ll do it.

Answer: I don’t minimize the difficulty. But on this subject – I don’t really do politics, because it’s not right. In the end, your politics is for you. The correct procedure is for you to get onto your representatives, both in the US Senate where the bill has yet to go through (you can try and stop that) and in [the House], and get them to demand their right of audience (which they all have) with the president and tell him about this treaty. There are many very powerful people in this room, wealthy people, influential people.

Get onto the media, tell them about this treaty. If they go to, they will find (if they look carefully enough) a copy of that treaty, because I arranged for it to be posted there not so long ago. Let them read it, and let the press tell the people that their democracy is about to be taken away for no good purpose, at least [with] no scientific basis [in reference to climate change]. Tell the press to say that, even if there is a problem [with climate change], you don’t want your democracy taken away. It really is as simple as that.

The New American Revolution!

The current political unrest in America seems to have awoken many members of the “silent majority”. It is becoming very apparent that this majority is not happy with the democratically controlled government in Washington. There has been a large increase in the numbers of actively involved citizens that are staging protests. It appears that the more the main street media and government leaders criticizes and calls these involved citizens names then the citizens become even more involved! Even those that are retired are becoming activists. This citizen movement must continue to grow because the socialists have a plan for America and this plan will destroy everything that America stands for! This plan will overload our system until it breaks and then the socialists will put in place their domestic plan of wealth redistribution.

According to George Soros is the great benefactor for this group of socialists and has given millions to this group. In 1979 Soros established the Open Society Institute (OSI), which serves as the flagship of a network of Soros foundations that donate tens of millions of dollars each year to a wide array of individuals and organizations that share the founder's agendas.

Those agendas can be summarized as follows: promoting the view that America is institutionally an oppressive nation, promoting the election of leftist socialist political candidates throughout the United States, opposing virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government; particularly the Patriot Act, depicting American military actions as unjust and unwarranted and immoral, promoting open borders and mass immigration and a watering down of current immigration laws, promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes, promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens, defending the civil rights and liberties of suspected anti-American terrorists and their abettors, financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left, advocating America's unilateral disarmament and/or a steep reduction in its military spending, opposing the death penalty in all circumstances, promoting socialized medicine in the United States, promoting the tenets of radical environmentalism.

The ultimate goal of their ecological policies such as cap and tax are, as writer Michael Berliner has explained, "not clean air and clean water, [but] rather ... the demolition of technological/industrial civilization", bringing American foreign policy under the control of the United Nations, promoting racial and ethnic preferences in academia and the business world alike, promoting taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, advocating stricter gun-control measures, and advocating the legalization of marijuana.

Do you see a pattern here or is it my imagination? I see President Obama’s agenda and Mr. Soros’s agenda as one and the same. They both have the same plan with the same sorry end result for America, which is the establishment of socialism! The “silent majority” must stay alert and active and be ready to contact our elected leaders to tell them to stop this movement toward socialism. If our leaders don’t stop then we must elect new leaders that will do what we ask of them. Remember “proper planning prevents poor performance”!

Beware of what is going on in the shadows by the many, many groups funded by Mr. Soros because that is where evil plans are currently being developed that will promote these agendas and make them successful. Americans must be prepared to fight these shadowy groups with their evil socialist plans for America! Join together with other local citizens and form groups and make plans for the coming battle against these socialist plans for America. I would urge retired military members, retired teachers, retired lawyers and other retired citizens to join some of these local groups. Contact me if you need help with these groups.

The Coming Serfdom!

The liberal elite in congress are at it again. They are looking at all the ways that they can strap the American people with new taxes; there is no tax that they dislike. Besides how are they going to pay for increasing the size of their idol “BIG GOVERNMENT”? So far their inventory for their view of government includes Obamacare, Cap and Tax, Stimulus package with ‘PORK’ on the side, and more and more Stimulus packages with more and more Pork. Now they are discussing a “VALUE ADDED TAX” to help pay for this “BIG GOVERNMENT”. The VAT will be paid by everyone, sorry but I got delusional for a moment; I should have said the VAT will be paid by some of us!! Yes Mr. Obama said “NO NEW TAXES” but I read his lips and that is not what he said, what he said was no new taxes for those who don’t pay taxes! Your focus should not be on the words that Obama speaks but on the meaning of his words i.e. what the meaning of is, is!
If you are curious on what the president is doing and why; then you will have to look at his background and all the people that influenced him. If you check out his background then you will discover his thinking and it is definitely not what everyone thought! Mr. Obama was surrounded by socialists, communists, and various other undemocratic groups that have always thought that they had a better plan for America. Their basic plan is to set up a social order where everyone has the same level ground or “playpen” and all are protected and kept happy by their benefactor “BIG GOVERNMENT”. The presidents friends, like Mr. George Soros who brought many, many socialist democrats and the President to power with his millions of dollars, innately know that this is the best way to go because the “SILENT MAJORITY” will remain silent and no one will stop them. Everyone knows how much liberals care for the “little guy” and the poor, and that is why many liberal’s children go to private schools! So you have to wonder what liberals really want for Americans!
Someday maybe democrats will have an epiphany, like I did while I was in college and began to realize what a stupid dope I had been by following blindly this new socialist democratic view of America. Hopefully more and more democrats will see the coming SERFDOM under “Big Government” as something that they can not accept. Then again maybe they are true believers of the socialist arm of the Democratic Party and if so then they should be very happy with the coming “Big Government” serfdom. However, the rest of the American people must do whatever it takes to make sure that this does not ever, ever happen! I assure you that you do not want to be peasants in this serfdom set up by a “Big Government” control center. I would urge you to read “1984” by George Orwell or “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, which shows what will happen when “Big Government” takes over and begins to make rules that will decide how you must live your life! Contact others in your local community and at the workplace to form groups and begin to take action to stop this movement.
If you need help in setting up groups then send me an e-mail to and I will be happy to help. Remember EVIL exists because good people set by and do NOTHING!

Big Government grows larger!
First it was the government takeover of the big banks and then it was the auto industry and now the health care industry. It is now becoming very clear that if the Presidents Healthcare plan passes, as it is currently written in both the House and Senate, then all Americans will be affected by higher costs for health insurance, senior citizens will be affected by having their Medicare cut drastically, and most Americans will have to pay higher taxes to help pay for this monstrosity. Everyone knows that whatever costs the Government tacks onto the Insurance companies will be passed on to all of us.
This increase in costs, Government regulations, and the ability of Government to sell their product at a much cheaper price, since the Government will have taxpayer money to support their insurance programs, will cause private insurance companies to eventually go out of business. If you need an example of what will be the future of our healthcare just look at the other government ran programs like the Post Office, the Amtrak Transit program, Fannie May, Freddie Max, and Social Security.
Apparently congress is going to pass the healthcare program by using special rules that only require a majority of votes in favor of the healthcare plan as written. These special rules will not allow for discussion and is filibuster proof; therefore, there is no way to prevent the vote from happening! As a result senior citizens must send letters or e-mails, make phone calls, or somehow contact your senators and representatives to let them know your feelings about this terrible healthcare plan.
Next on the agenda for congress is the costly “Cap and Trade” bill which will tax large companies for allowing harmful particulates and gases into to the environment. This bill will increase utility costs for everyone since they will pass on all costs to the consumers. Many experts have indicated that this increased cost may double or even triple our utility bills. Congress is passing this bill to control man made global warming, which is not the cause since climate change is caused by the sun and other factors in nature and is not man made. Most real scientists laugh at this idea presented by pseudo-scientists at the United Nations and believed by politicians as factual. Again seniors will be affected by this bill, especially when you factor in the governments decision to freeze social security increases for the next two years and maybe for all future years! Many experts believe that social security will be paying out more than they take in by the year 2015 and this has been known by your congress for many years. Another reason to reduce the size of Big Government!! A recent survey has shown that a majority thinks that randomly selected people off the streets would make better representatives and senators.
Seniors must contact their congressmen and women and begin to take a very active role in helping these people make decisions that are more in line with seniors needs. Seniors must join together in political groups so that their voices are heard loud and clear in Washington! Seniors must look at both parties and decide which one has their best interests in mind. The Republicans have a new leader, Michael Steele, and he has made sure that senior citizens have a place at their table. In fact Mr. Steele has developed a “Bill of rights” for Senior Citizens which show that the republicans are very interested in seniors becoming a part of their coalition. Seniors must forget about the AARP because they are not a special interest group for seniors, they are an insurance company that sells to seniors! Seniors must join groups like the American Seniors Association so that their voices are heard in congress! If you need help in contacting ASA send me an e-mail at and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Citizens in revolt

It is apparent that the majority of Americans has for a long, long time set by and ignored what was or was not going on in their country. They were for the most part to busy working, paying bills, and raising their families to be actively involved in criticizing the government or doing anything about the Main Street Medias misinformation tactics. In fact, forty years ago they were defined as the “silent majority” by the media because they seemed not to be concerned enough to raise their collective voices and remained silent during difficult times. This shows how the Main Street Media thinks about those that don’t agree with their elitist attitudes and about the “little person”. In a recent article Bruce Walker gives a quote from Vice President Spiro Agnew in 1961 about the Main Street Media:
"We can deduce that these men read the same newspapers. They draw their political and social views from the same sources. Worse, they talk constantly to one another, thereby providing artificial reinforcement to their shared viewpoints. Do they allow their biases to influence the selection and presentation of the news?"
Today’s reality shows that the silent majority now is actively involved as was indicated by the attendance at the various congressional voter workshops and the Teaparty held in Washington DC. So the old “Silent Majority” has become the new “Not So Silent Majority”.
Bruce Walker also wrote in that article “Rasmussen in a September 11 poll confirmed how Americans really feel about ideology: all political labels except "being like Reagan" are in growing disfavor; the term "progressive" (a leftist hiding behind a different moniker) is becoming unpopular; and only fifteen percent of Americans consider being called "liberal" a positive. What Rasmussen reports fits perfectly with Gallup, which recently showed conservatives outnumbering liberals and Battleground Polls, which for almost a decade have consistently shown sixty percent of Americans identify themselves as conservatives (not liberals and not moderates.)” and certainly not a progressive! This being the case then how do we explain the fact that socialists have gained so much power in the Democratic Party? I suggest that the “McCain-Feingold Act” changed the entire playing field so that now these shadow groups can buy congressmen and women with ease; unforeseen results of laws not carefully written! We need to pressure congress to change this law and close this giant loophole that allows Soros and others to donate millions of dollars that support candidates that are socialists in their beliefs and actions!
Successful and useful things tend to spawn other successful and useful things, so we are seeing a large surge in private citizens becoming actively involved. Look at the Tea Party movement and look at the two "activists" who did their own private sting on Acorn at a cost of a few thousand dollars of their own money. With a PC and a few hundred dollars worth of equipment, thanks to You Tube, anyone can do likewise. I am trying to get the information out and I only had to put out money for my computer, internet service, and some software. We can finally let the people everywhere see the ugly underside of the left's chaos and plans to destroy our society in their effort to achieve their secular utopia. Will you be involved at the next Teaparty? I would urge everyone reading this to join or start a group in your local community and begin to take an active role in making sure that your views are considered by our congressmen and women. If you want information on how to start a local chapter send me an e-mail at and I will be happy to direct you to the information you will need to get started.
