URBAN HEALTH INITIATIVE FOR ALL!

Posted by ginnypub on March 3, 2009

What do you call health “care” involving Michelle (finally proud of her country) Soetoro, David (astroturfer) Axelrod, Valerie (slumlord) Jarrett, Dr. Eric (Rezko kickbacks) Whitaker, Tony (convicted felon slumlord) Rezko and Rod (impeached governor) Blagojevich?

The president of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Dr. Nick Jouriles, calls it “dangerously close to ‘patient dumping,’ a practice made illegal by the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act, and reflected an effort to ‘cherry pick’ wealthy patients over poor.”

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ),  said its an effort to “cut coverage for the poor.”

I think most clear-thinking individuals would call it PATIENT DUMPING.

But what is the Soetoro/Axelrod/Jarrett/Whittaker/Rezko/Blagojevich “health care” plan called?

THE URBAN HEALTH INITIATIVE

Here’s how it works:

Suppose you’re a poor Southside Chicago resident that used to live in a government-subsidized housing unit owned by Valerie Jarrett or Tony Rezko, before the building was condemned, closed and demolished. Your 2-yr-old has eaten some lead-based paint chips that have fallen off the wall and into his crib. He is crying from stomach pains. You’re horrified. You scoop him up, run to a bus stop and get him to the Emergency Room at the University of Chicago. You try as best you can to comfort your child while checking in at the reception desk. “No, I don’t have insurance”, you tell the receptionist, as you fumble for a tissue to wipe up some of the vomit your son has just regurgitated on the floor.

You take your crying child to the waiting room to anxiously await his treatment. After an hour, you notice that several well-dressed individuals have been called back, even though they arrived after you and your son. After 3 hours, you keep putting your face close to your child’s mouth and nose because he has fallen into a deep sleep and you’re afraid he may die in your arms. After 4 hours, a shuttle bus arrives to take you and your son (free of charge) to a “less expensive” clinic….

How is the Chicago Urban Health Initiative relevant to most Americans?

Suppose you’ve signed up for SoetoroCare, outlined in the “stimulus bill”. Your child is very sick…..

McCain Outs Little Porky Projects

Posted by ginnypub on February 28, 2009

“I am gonna tweet the TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS in the Omnibus Spending bill the Congress is about to pass,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., wrote on his Twitter page yesterday.

“#10. $1.7M “for a honey bee factory” in Weslaco, TX
“#9. $475,000 to build a parking garage in Provo City, Utah
“#8. $200,000 “tattoo removal violence outreach program to could help gang members or others shed visible signs of their past.”
“#7. $300,000 for the Montana World Trade Center
“#6. $1 million for mormon cricket control in Utah
“#5. $650,000 for beaver management in North Carolina and Mississippi”
“#4. $2.1 million for the Center for Grape Genetics in New York
“#3. $332,000 for the design and construction of a school sidewalk in Franklin, Texas
“#2. $2 million ‘for the promotion of astronomy’ in Hawaii –
“#1. $1.7 million for pig odor research in Iowa”

All sound like “shovel-ready” projects to me, Sen. McCain.

Hollyweird Codel

Posted by ginnypub on February 28, 2009

By now, everyone has probably read about Hollyweird’s latest stunt. Some are in IRAN on a completely apolitical, “cultural exchange”.

The absolute BEST take on it, IMO, comes from Pat Dollard.

Enjoy.

Approval Down, Disapproval Up

Posted by ginnypub on February 23, 2009

Of course, it’s the fault of the “chattering class” on “cable television”. Barry Soetoro, again today, blamed “cable television” for people not supporting his Massive New Government Spending Bill dressed up as “economic stimulus”.

Now we know the reason for Barry’s overall approval being down and overall disapproval being up. Americans are too stupid to think for themselves.

Hey, Barry. Here’s a news flash. If it walks like a duck…..

Who Did Eric Holder Forget?

Posted by ginnypub on February 23, 2009

Eric Holder outing himself as a race-baiter didn’t surprise me. The MSM’s double standard in dealing with Eric Holder’s repugnant race-baiting didn’t surprise me.

After all, this is the man who promoted the pardon of Marc Rich, a man who was a business partner of the Iranian government during the hostage crisis. This is the man who promoted the pardons of Weather Underground terrorists Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans.

This is the man, who as Janet Reno’s Deputy AG, declined to address Jamie Gorelick’s “wall” between information sharing of governmental intelligence agencies.

It didn’t surprise me that during his speech to the USDOJ, that of the 18 Black Americans Eric Holder chose to name for their contributions to Black equal rights, NOT ONE OF THEM EVER WORE A U.S. MILITARY UNIFORM. It didn’t surprise me because he probably doesn’t even know about any of them. After all, like almost all of Barry Soetoro’s administration, Eric Holder is a retread from the Bill “I loathe the military” Clinton.

Let me help you Eric.

Not Hard To Outclass Matt Lauer

Posted by ginnypub on February 17, 2009

Hey Matt, if you’re going to interview a historian, it might help to know a little history instead of just regurgitating talking points.

Karl Rove bitch slaps the little bitch, Matt Lauer:

Drive-By Fruiting

Posted by ginnypub on February 14, 2009

When Conservatives were trying to get the Barry Soetoro-controlled media to report on his illegal campaign contributions from Islamic serial mass murderers Hamas during the 2008 presidential election, Barry’s Cerberus Squad focused its attention on something really morally repugnant. Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) had been given (GASP!) $150,000 in clothes from the RNC! The Chicago Tribune, AP, The Washington Post, CBS Evening News, ETC. ad nauseam, with FOLLOW UPS continuing even AFTER the election.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s favorite consignment shop has been forced to change its name after she brought the trendy, upscale Anchorage boutique unintended legal problems during last year’s presidential campaign.

 

Out of the Closet owner Ellen Arvold said she was served a cease-and-desist letter by a Los Angeles-based chain of thrift stores with the same name—same trademarked name, it turned out—after Palin mentioned her store in an interview.

 

Rather than fight, Arvold agreed to change the name to Second Run. The change is effective Saturday, the store’s fifth anniversary.

“We don’t have the resources to fight,” Arvold said. “We just decided to change the name. We really had no choice legally.”

 

In an interview with Fox News in October, she said she was a frugal shopper and her favorite shop was “a consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska, called Out of the Closet.”

 

Ged Kenslea, spokesman for AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the owner and operator of the Out of the Closet thrift store chain, said if it weren’t for Palin, the duplicative name “wouldn’t have landed on the radar.”

“We’ve invested a lot of time, energy and money or resources branding Out of the Closet, tied specifically to our HIV/AIDS mission to provide care and advocacy regardless of a patient’s ability to pay,” Kenslea said. “She was very gracious and agreed to change the name of her store.”

 

As for Palin’s high priced wardrobe, the Republican National Committee has said it would be donated to charity. Neither Palin nor RNC officials immediately responded to interview requests on Friday.  (As God is my witness, I didn’t make this up.)

If the campaign duds haven’t been distributed yet, Kenslea said the charity would be happy to take them.

I, for one, am pleased that Ellen chose to do the morally correct thing, and not give cross-dressers in San Francisco a bad name.

Nancy Pelosi’s Sonny Drysdale

Posted by ginnypub on February 13, 2009

Remember Sonny Drysdale on the Beverly Hillbillies? He was a 40-yr-old perennial college student and prissy mommy’s boy. Mommy always took care of him.

sonnydrysdalemommymrsdrysdale

Speaker of the U.S. House of Represetatives, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has her own Sonny. His name is Paul Pelosi, Jr. Mommy will pay you to play with Little Paulie.

Little Paulie holds three degrees from Georgetown University: a Bachelor of Arts in History (Cum Laude, 1991), a Juris Doctorate with an emphasis in International Business, and a Masters in Business Administration. He is an “independent adviser” and “independent consultant”.

On Dec 5, 2008 Blue Earth Solutions appointed Little Paulie to its Board of Directors.  In 2001, Little Paulie was appointed by Mayor Willie L. Brown Jr. to the San Francisco Commission on the Environment. Little Paulie is an adviser to Dr. Simon P. Worden, Director of NASA’s Ames Research Center. Little Paulie is an adviser for AirPatrol Corporation and “founding member” of Cisco Connected Urban Development. Cisco also employs Dr. Kaveh Safavi who developed a fully automated electronic medical record system.How much money is Mommy taking out of your pockets, your children’s pockets and your grandchildren’s pockets to pay for playing with Little Paulie?

90 BILLION DOLLARS**

She calls it the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Hush Little Baby. Don’t say a word. Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird. If that mockingbird won’t sing, Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring… 

**As of 10:00pm 12Feb2009. No one has seen the revised bill except Mama and K Street lobbyists.

Take This Card…Take My House

Posted by ginnypub on February 11, 2009

Yesterday’s stop was in Florida in the  American Tour of the  Barry Soetoro’s Squirrel Revival of the First Self-Righteous Church.

 By some miracle, a 61-yr-old homeless cancer patient (living in a pickup truck for a year) named Henrietta Hughes was able to obtain an advance ticket,  procure a front-row seat  and (this is REALLY a miracle) was called upon by Brother Barry himself!

A staffer later gave her a card to the head of the housing authority and she was told he would help her.

“That was my desire,” the 61-year-old woman said as she cried. “I said I just pray to the Lord.”

I haven’t heard yet if Henrietta has decided to keep the card to the Housing Authority that already has her on a 2-yr waiting list or the 3-bedroom house. I also haven’t heard yet if Henrietta has learned the difference between Fake Messiah Bullshit and Christian Conservative True Grit.

Martinsville’s Cousin Eddies

Posted by ginnypub on February 8, 2009

Cousin Eddie Johnson is a character in National Lampoon’s “Vacation” movies.

Cousin Eddie, his wife Catherine and two of their four children live in an RV. Cousin Eddie’s family has to eat Hamburger Helper without the hamburger. His children get no Christmas gifts. They have no indoor plumbing.

You see, Cousin Eddie supports his family on a disability pension from the Army. He has been out of work for 7 years. Why would a man allow his family to live in squalor; without even the basic essentials to sustain human life? “He’s been holding out for a management position”.

Cousin Eddie complains about the lack of funds from the federal government. “I got laid off when they closed that asbestos factory, and now wouldn’t you know it, the army cuts my disability pension because they said that the plate in my head wasn’t big enough”.

cousineddie

I grew up in a town full of Cousin Eddies and their off-spring, Cousin Eddie, Jr., Cousin Eddie III…..generations of Cousin Eddies. It’s called Martinsville, VA.

barrymartinsville

Today the Richmond Times Dispatch ran a story about Martinsville, VA. More specifically, a story about the jobless rate in Martinsville. The statewide jobless rate in the Commonwealth of Virginia is 5.4%. The jobless rate in Martinsville is 15.4%; the highest in the Commonwealth. How can this be? From the story:

The big plants started shutting or leaving more than a decade ago as federal trade policies changed, and more have closed in the past two years.

Today, 31.5 percent of Martinsville residents 25 or older do not have a high school diploma, compared with 18.5 percent statewide, according to census figures.

City Manager Clarence Monday: “With the manufacturing jobs gone or going, those who can find work are taking low-paying positions. A large percentage of our work force is underemployed. They’ve had to accept jobs that don’t have the same salary.”

Earlier this month, Barry Soetoro used a Martinsville family as poster children when he signed into  legislation the massive SCHIP expansion. How does Martinsville, VA react to its problems making the front page of the state’s largest newspaper and captured for eternity in a legislative bill-signing photo-op?

The Martinsville Bulletin completely ignored the jobless story. In its place, the Bulletins owners, Robert and Elizabeth Haskell, chose to publish on their editorial page praise for Barry Soetoro using the same poster family they themselves had used for a Georgetown University study that they themselves had funded.
