Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

Bully!

By Greg L | 14 April 2010 | National Politics, Prince William County | 33 Comments

The leftists are absolutely aghast that PWC Chairman Corey Stewart would have the temerity to challenge the imposition of federal mandates on local government that could negatively impact the provision of a wide array of services to our county residents.  In the view of the socialists, ObamaCare is a done deal, and we are duty-bound to do nothing but shut up and take whatever this legislation imposes on us, no matter the impacts.  Instead of dumbly playing the sacrificial lamb, PWC Chairman Corey Stewart intends to do something to oppose the gutting of our local government resources to support this mandate and is working on a legal challenge, and that has the left going nuts.  Chairman Stewart must be doing the right thing.

ObamaCare puts a lot of administrative burdens on states and localities along with the expansion of public healthcare benefits to new constituencies, and doesn’t provide any additional resources to states or localities that would help them shoulder this burden.  Under ObamaCare, 400,000 new beneficiaries would be added to Medicaid in Virginia costing the Commonwealth $1.1 Billion, and the administration of those benefits is done at the local level.  After paring the budget down to the absolute minimum, the county simply doesn’t have the resources to expand entitlement administration to handle this additional burden and in order to meet the new federal mandate will have to shift resources from things like public safety and benefit programs targeting the needy.  ObamaCare, instead of helping localities, will put them in a terrible bind and suck resources from core responsibilities in order to meet a new federal mandate to benefit those that don’t even fall below federal poverty guidelines.

So Chairman Stewart wants to ensure that with the limited resources we have in this economy during the Obama Administration we continue to provide services to the truly needy and tell the Commonwealth that we’re not going to expand benefits administration to new demographics unless the Commonwealth compels us to do so.  This encourages the Commonwealth to say to the federal government that Medicaid is a bad deal for states under ObamaCare and unless they fix it, we might not want to participate in the program.  We might want to do something different.  If the federal government poisons Medicaid with unfunded mandates to the point that states can no longer afford to be a part of it, perhaps Congress and this administration will start honestly considering the fiscal malfeasance they’re foisting on state and local government and consider some responsible alternatives.

This simple, and relatively benign approach — one might think a more clearly stated, undiplomatic, and emphatic HELL NO! was more appropriate here — still has the left in full high dudgeon.  Their holy grail of wealth redistribution is put into grave jeopardy once any level of government that actually has to meet a budget starts complaining about what it’s going to cost to do all this, and threatens to get off this insane merry-go-round.  Someone actually has to pay for all this?  We can’t be discussing that!

In short order Prince William County will open a very substantial discussion within the country about who actually pays for all this free health care, and who can be compelled to pay for it.  That discussion never happened in Congress as it should have, but now that states and localities are starting to tabulate the bill that’s just been handed to them perhaps the discussion can start now.  It’ll drive liberals insane.  With that, liberal bloggers are getting a jump on the debate now and heads are exploding all over the internet as socialists scream in utter horror about how anyone could dare to talk about how state and local government is supposed to administer a vastly larger program with the shrinking amount of tax dollars they have available.

Just watch at how all the left’s inane predictions about this initiative and what it means turn out to be false.  We’ve seen this before, many times.  In the end, when the people are paying attention to the debate, the liberals lose.  They’ll lose this time as well.

    Not only are most people NOT ok with Obamacare, they don’t want it forced on them. The “progressives” just don’t get the fact that if most people actually wanted Obamacare, state officials wouldn’t bother to legally challenge it.

    The fools over on moonhowlings have turned that blog into a hate all things Republican blog. If anyone dares say anything negative about Obama or any liberal, they are shot down and told to behave or they will be asked to leave. On the other hand, they continually blast all things conservative, paint the Tea Party as an angry racist crowd, recently speculated that Corey is a closet “birther” (right in one of moonhowler’s rantings to introduce one of her anti-Corey threads) and attack anyone who tries to defend any conservative ideas. They will soon be talking to themselves as many conservative posters have already left the blog - being chased off because they said something “unkind” about Obama, or the Coffee Party, or one of their other favorite liberal groups. moonhowlings will soon be known as echohowlings, as it will be a bunch of liberals talking to themselves.

    Take a look at their recent threads and see the pattern - attack all things conservative yet they claim they are a moderate blog and a voice of reason!

    Here’s another gem from moonratings showing what a bunch of hypocrites they are:

    “He has fanned the flames during the immigration debate, he shouted anti abortion rhetoric at a V.O.I.C.E. meeting about housing, insulted vets over joining the Coffee Party, disparaging all the other members in his sweeping generalizations, just to name a few instances where peace in PWC seems unlikely. ”

    An interesting rewriting of history. Moonranter would have you believe Corey directly insulted vets because they joined the Coffee Party.

    He said some unkind things about the Coffee Party, but in Moonranter’s version of the story he belittled vets because they joined the Coffee Party. Then, Moonranter talks about “sweeping generalizations”! What a hypocrite…

    And, Moonranter speculates once again about her favorite subject,
    “birthers” speculating Corey is one even though she has no evidence. Lately she speculates a lot on things, and prints them as facts, with zero evidence to back them up:

    “Stewart is being might particular about this Nobel Prize Winner for a speaker. He wants an American. I heard that Obama might be asked to deliver the speech. Is the President American enough or is Mr. Stewert a birther? I expect the chairman would be real happy about being chief dignitary to greet the Commander in Chief. I want to see Mr. Stewart make nice with Mr. Obama. I want to see the pain on his face. Oh the joy! “

    Here’s another example of moonhowler being a hypocrite: she continually says to posters to move on when they try to defend the Tea Part against her malicious accusations they are racists and said the n-word when the African American Congressmen walked by their rally. She tells her posters to move on and give up defending the Tea Party against these accusations. Then, the next day, she posts a brand new thread once again attacking the Tea Party as being racist.

    When a poster who was chastised and told to move on questions her, her defense is a weak one: “It is still news”. Apparently, everyone should move on when they say something that she doesn’t like on a subject, but then she can go and create a new thread on the same subject the very next day!

    She continues to claim she is not a liberal - but take a look at her threads. Every thread she posts is either very anti conservative, or else very complimentary of any liberal cause.

    Kooky Gotthardt is flapping her jaw again saying Corey can’t be trusted with sharpening a pencil. With the stuff she spouts, she shouldn’t even be trusted WITH a pencil, sharpened or not! She is so paranoid and thinks everyone’s out to get her she might try and stab someone with it!

    And then there’s BVBLReporter who thinks people are mad because they’ve been kicked off of moonhowlings. BVBLReporter doesn’t get it - moonhowlings kicks people off all the time and then claim they don’t censor. What a hoot!

    The middle class is being left out. Why? Could be that’s the back bone of our Country.

    We are tired of the freebies to any one who comes along and this includes those who come over the border illegally.

    Every illegal is costing all of us money.

    Really? As a government employee, that’s news to me. I still get a chunk pulled out of my paycheck every two weeks to cover my part of my insurance premiums, and dealing with my sleep apnea issues has cost me thousands of dollars out of pocket.

    So where’s the “scott free” portion?

    Anon at 8:42-
    I’m a federal gov’t employee. According to you, I have access to “scott free health care”. Let me assure you that nobody who is employed by the federal government is getting free health care, unless they are defrauding someone for it. I pay 30% of my Blue Cross/Blue Sheild premiums, plus the portions of my health care bills that are not covered. I had a heart attack and subsequent bypass surgery in 2003. The total bill: $82,000.00. My portion: $8,500 in out of pocket expenses, which I paid. I have been paying health care premiums since 1983. That was my first hospitalization. How many illegal aliens are paying their hospital bills when service is rendered? We wouldn’t have a health care debate if they were. Walk into the emergency room at PW Hospital and tell me how many of the patients sitting in there speak english and have insurance. The middle class is working hard, paying it’s bills, raising it’s families and preparing to vote the bastards out in November. We will start evicting the illegals soon after that, just like Arizona is doing.

    If anyone would like an inside look at how leftists and apologists operate, go to the Center for Immigration Studies website and read the March 2010 edition of “Backgrounder”, their journal. It has a fascinating breakdown of how the SPLC and La Raza teamed up in 2007 to smear FAIR with charges of racism and labeled them a “hate group”. Interesting reading. Where do these idiots come up with the time and money to do this stuff? Oh, yeah. Donations from the SEIU, United Food and Commercial Workers Union, National Immigration Law Center, the American Nursury and Landscape Association (go figure) and of course….UNCLE SAM!!!

    Might have been a good day for the Tea Party folks to question
    if the 16th amendment was ever legally ratified and even if it was
    (and that is a big “if”), is it unconstitutional?

    Big Dog, if it was legally ratified, it has to be constitutional by definition.

    Is there a belief that it wasn’t? That’s a serious question, by the way.

    I didn’t know there was an issue about its ratification. I guess I will have to google it. I assume the 16th was the income tax amendment and how the proceeds may be used?

    moonhowler et al dont know what they are. They certainly dont like corey or the supervisors in general. She used to be a frequent contributor here and agreed with many subjects as well..then she went rogue :)

    The only ones that have been consistent with their leftist whackiness are the other cats..Elena has been kinda low key, as has the other broads. Have not seen much from pinko the nutjob, but I’m sure she’s still around. Maybe once spring gets into full swing they’ll come out of their winter hibernation and really get moving with some fruity posts.

    Honestly reading their blog isnt funny anymore, it’s essentially a waste of time. Leftist women ranting on topics that have been so “ranted” about it’s not even worth it anymore

    Can anyone tell me when the war ended, or Gitmo was closed? It must have happened right when Obama came to office. Why, I remember when some on the hill were calling Bush and company war criminals, and suddenly not one discouraging word about the war or Gitmo. Wow, Obama sure acts fast, or is just that now THEIR party is in charge and so all is fine with the war effort. Simply amazing!

    Oh, come on , guys. Moonhowler has her firm beliefs, just as all of you do. She can certainly stick to her guns. Nevertheless, there are a number of us conservatives over there who regularly come in on the threads posted and point out unproven claims, usually in regard to outside source material placed on those threads. The issue about what allegedly happened at the last demonstration in D.C. was thoroughly dissected by several of us, including the alleged spitting incident. And absolutely everything posted from the Rachel Maddow show gets immediately dissected for Maddow’s tendency to use misleading intros and ad hominem attacks on her show. I absolutely do not feel like I am cruising for a “banning” because of my conservative views. The ticket is to stop throwing out unkind epithets and insults and just stick to polite and civil dissent. The whole thing can become an interesting back-and-forth without everybody going into the political snit mode. That blog is labelled “liberal”; but I have been very surprised how often I can detect some moderate and even near-conservative views comming out on some subjects.

    Let me add that I am openly known on the Moonhowlings.net as a “Tea Party” supporter and have had ample opportunity to describe what I feel makes up that movement — or “state of mind”, as I prefer to call it. Never a slap back because of my opinions. Some disagreement here and there, of course; but that sure keeps you on your toes in defining your views and positions on the issues. It’s a damned good intellectual exercise for honing debate skills. It’s also a good place for doing research and pointing out areas of misleading information from outside sources. Not an “echo chamber” at all as far as I am concerned. And I will put my conservative views up against anybody on the blog here.

    Wolverine, what you say is all true for your case. Some of us aren’t treated as well as you over there. I was told to no longer post there because of something I said about the Coffee Party, which was not that harsh. I’m not the only one who has politely disagreed with them and then been told I’m no longer welcome over there.

    Wolverine - who knows how to express a compelling viewpoint in a sensible way - is a clear example of the openness of the Moonhowlings site to all comers. I suspect if people are banned over there it is not because of their point of view, but how they conduct themselves. I always think of blogs as the e-equivalent of the old country store or barbershop. Folks come in and swap views. It works great as long as no one starts cursing or throwing furniture. Each blog has a slightly different character and a different degree of tolerance for rough conduct -just as one might find more pointed discourse in the town saloon than at a church social. But, in the end, the proprietor has to decide where to draw the line in order to maintain the atmosphere for the other customers.

    By the way, what the heck was it that Stewart did that was referenced in the original post. I read it and wasn’t sure exactly what was going on. Is HE going to sue the federal government now? Are the taxpayers now going to fund this kind of windmill tilt/campaign device at the county level too? Maybe it’s just a way to get some press, but, in the end, he won’t really have to spend tax dollars on this. Or is this going to be a private action?

    Scout - I’m confused about what Corey is proposing as well. The most I can get out of this article is this snippett:

    “So Chairman Stewart wants to … tell the Commonwealth that we’re not going to expand benefits administration to new demographics unless the Commonwealth compels us to do so.”

    I’m interpreting this as meaning that the county will not distribute any new Medicaid entitlements unless forced to by the Commonwealth. Not sure about it though.

    Corey announced he intends to introduce a resolution to the BOCS on May 4th that would somehow prevent Prince William County health authorities from implementing ObamaCare. His website says he’s still working on the wording of the resolution, and will provide it once it’s ready for introduction.

    I think the penultimate sentence in Greg’s exposition, above, is what this is all about. “In the end, when the people are paying attention to the debate, the liberals lose.” It’s about debating. It’s not about action. It’s not about doing the people’s will. It’s about debating. Just like the nonsensical ploy yesterday of delivering a letter with a lot of TJ’s language in it to the White House. Sound and fury have become the end instead of the means to the end. This is the result of electing products of lily-white sububanism who have little or no street experience. Corey talked about his longshoreman father yesterday, and about his own experience as a student. We’d be better off if Corey had been a longshoreman as well, and predicated his actions on that experience, instead of his experiences as a student. Longshoremen know how to get a job done. Students debate.

    And as the liberal/conservative debates rage on, and the Republican/Democrat games are played, we the people continue to lose our wealth, our freedoms, and our faith in our representatives. The losses result in frustration. The frustration is exacerbated by these meaningless, child-like attempts to gain attention. Eventually, the frustration will manifest itself in a form that will require action.

    Be prepared for the manifestation, my friends.
