A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Barack Obama and his Disease NOT to Please March 18, 2010

When Bret Baier of FOX NEWS stepped into President Barack Obama’s parlor for a lengthy interview yesterday , all arrogance and subterfuge broke out from the mouths of the two-faced chosen one.

When it comes to getting to the heart of the matter with the head of our nation, there are no logical underpinnings. Only a smarmy and disturbingly dismissive air  that is and will always be the true nature of Obama.   There is no sense of openness with this guy. The house is full of glass –breakable objects with “DO NOT TOUCH” signs –such as his ego.  Look at it, admire it, but don’t you dare touch it or you may get shocked.   Because his clenched lipped, wide toothy smile is an extension of his fake demeanor, I am not quite certain how much forced effort he expends per appearance to actually endear himself to the public.

I will bet anyone a tall frothy mug of root beer that Obama ran to some back room and punched some poor unsuspecting well wallpapered White House wall  after his FOX interview.

Bravo to Bret Baier, for not falling for the ol’ Obama long drawn out response trick. Bravo to FOX NEWS for not rolling over and playing dead like nearly every other media outlet known to man.

I love the way Obama is dismissive of Bret’s email examples.  Emails from ACTUAL PEOPLE.  Not his Kool AID punch drunk adoring fans who are planted like acorns at town hall meetings.

So reminiscent of Obama’s “I HAVE A BRACELET TOO” moment during a 2008 presidential debate.

Has anyone ever told you that you are too nice?  That you are “a pleaser” ?  You care too much about what others think?   For every disease there is its evil twin.  The twin of “the disease to please” is named Barack Obama.

Obama’s lack of concern for Americans is not hidden in some deep dank, dark place beneath the surface… It is on the surface.

There is no “at first sight he seems compassionate” .    At least for smart voters like myself there wasn’t

Any intelligent, discerning voter can see that it is in Obama’s DNA not to please.  There is something more important in his life than you and that’s HIM.  Make no mistake that his inner house is full of glass. His brain has skylights and trap doors, no expression of true warmth and held together with steel and concrete beams, 40 tons of granite.

Ultimately this man is a with-holder.  While voters were douching their minds with  hope n’ change, Obama was cocooning his ego in the love bath.

Whatever originally attracted anyone to vote for Obama is beyond me.  His ego is his driving force, not the will of the people.   There is no well being center oasis in the desert.  Any attempt to reason with him will cause the “Uh, UH” responses and the dreaded “LOOK”.   Obama wants to keep things as fluidly slick and deceptive as possible.  When you touch the glass, it breaks and will cut you.

Hopefully in 2012 what felt so right to voters in 2008, will feel so wrong.  Whether any of his behavior and broken promises inspire his supporters to CHANGE and hope for something better, is entirely up to them.

People like me are just the messengers of the obvious message.

Folks, I am in a bit of a rush with moving and work.  I am too busy and stupid for words.

I have a lot on my mind about the ramming of this national healthcare reform initiative.  According to the Democrats, the public is not equipped to understand this “complex issue”.

"Too Stupid For Words" cartoon by Stilton Jarlsberg of Hope n' Change

I understand that there is a need for improved heathcare among the uninsured as well as those of us like myself, who do have insurance.  There is nothing more I hate than going to the doctor only to receive a pat on the head and a co-pay bill for $25.   I also understand that given the current state of out economy, I would like the Obama administration to focus job creation and not healthcare.  There really are more important things going on out there.  Families are struggling and if you ask Harry Reid (D-NV) , unemployed men are killing people.

On the plus side, at least Senator Reid did not label the angry unemployed men as conservative wingnuts just aching to kill a black man because they are out of work and angry at minorities stealing their jobs.  Speaking of losing jobs, Harry may be in the political graveyard looking for work himself.  It is a little known fact that Harry is a former boxer.

From I own the world

Watch out Mrs. Reid.

So let’s get these guys some jobs before we have a national crisis on our hands. People need to afford to shop at Whole Foods, donate to the Obama 2012 campaign and buy iPhones.  We gotta get this country hoping and changing again!

Liberal Hypocrisy Files: Even Rednecks Are Not This Creative February 26, 2010

From the screenplay The Blair Witch Project

Michael Williams: [sees dozens of stick-men hanging from trees] No redneck is this creative.

Wonderful line, except in this case those stick-men hanging from trees are Republicans

Given my fractured confidence in any bipartisan efforts initiated by the Obama administration, the results of yesterday’s “health summit” held at the Blair House, was of little surprise to me.  Carefully done, so eloquent, such a phony display of reaching across the table…to kick the Republicans in the face.

From the Wall Street Journal:

The Summit Sideshow
Democrats still face big political challenges in passing health legislation

BY Kim Strassel

The thing to know about President Obama’s health talkfest is that it had zero to do with Republicans or their ideas. The GOP came, it spiritedly debated, it left. The president never budged. He never intended to.

The Summit Show was designed by Democrats for Democrats, to give Mr. Obama an all-day stage to inspire and exhort his party to charge once more into the health fray. It’s about “altering the political atmospherics,” admitted one senior Democrat. Yet for all the talk of “jump-start,” there’s little to suggest the ugly politics of passage have changed…

But the real question still remains…Did the Democrats fool anyone?  As I was checking my email, I noticed an instant reply message from a colleague which stated that her work hours had been dropped to part-time. Ouch.  Among friends both in the flesh and virtual, I know of at least 36 that are currently unemployed.  My own argument against this push for nationalized healthcare is that it should not be a priority at the moment.  I thought after the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts, the Democrats understood that the country wanted them to concentrate on JOBS.

Get it? JOBS?

I thought Obama promised to be the “people’s president”.

So why isn’t he listening?

Obama, open your ears.  Hear your people.

Diversity Fatigue Alert: Your RACE CARD HAS BEEN DECLINED November 20, 2009

Readers may have noticed that Afrocity has been on the hibernation tour. Burned out/fed up on all of the bullshit.

Obviously I need a pick me up. A shot in the arm from some conservative comrades.  Alas, I am in Chicago. There are none. Only murders, cover-ups, cold weather, exorbitant taxes and Obama heads.

Even-so in this topsy-turvy political world called Chicago, there was one highlight. Mike Huckabee was coming to a nearby suburban Borders book store.  I was craving a conservative fix and Fox News just not cutting it.  Ironically, Al Gore was appearing the very next day in Chicago. No 35 mile drive to the burbs.

In the end, I saw neither man.  Which one tempted me the most? Mike Huckabee of course. There is nothing worse than having to face your formerly liberal conscience  to say that you do not give a rat’s ass about seeing the “goracle”. A man that you once voted for because you thought he would have made a great president but now you find him to be truly stomach turning.  I can hear him screaming that I am not green therefore I am racist.

Replace “green” with “supporting the health care bill”  and according to the honorable Jesse Jackson that makes Afrocity a racist too.

Jesse Jackson: ‘You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man’

By Mike Soraghan – 11/18/09

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Wednesday night criticized Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) for voting against the Democrats’ signature healthcare bill.

“We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill from Alabama,” Jackson said at a reception Wednesday night. “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala). According To Jesse Jackson, he cannot call himself a black man because he voted against the health care reform bill.

Not a black man because he voted against the health care reform bill.

The remark stirred a murmur at the reception, held by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation as part of a series of events revolving around the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s run for president. Several CBC members were in attendance, including Chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who’d introduced Jackson.

Davis, who is running for governor, is the only black member of Congress from Alabama.

He is also the only member of the CBC to have voted against the healthcare bill earlier this month.

Davis referred to Jackson’s 1988 run for president in a statement, issued through his office, that said he would not engage Jackson on his criticism.

“One of the reasons that I like and admire Rev. Jesse Jackson is that 21 years ago he inspired the idea that a black politician would not be judged simply as a black leader,” Davis’s statement said. “The best way to honor Rev. Jackson’s legacy is to decline to engage in an argument with him that begins and ends with race.”

Jackson said later that he “didn’t call anybody by name and I won’t.”

He added that he wasn’t saying that black lawmakers must vote a certain way. Instead, they should vote the interests of the people in their districts, and he said the healthcare bill would help Alabama because it’s one of the poorest states in the country.

“The poorest people need healthcare protection,” Jackson said. “They have the highest infant mortality and the lowest life expectancy. They’re dying from lack of access.”

Other members of the CBC found no fault in Jackson’s words. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) was in the audience. He called Jackson’s criticism of Davis “accurate,” but said he did not hear Jackson say “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

Now you know what Afrocity would say: Country before race, gender or party!!!

What gives Rev. Jesse Jackson the right to say who is and isn’t black? Look Jesse…Thank you for your contributions to African American history but you of all people, the man who stood by Martin Luther King Jr.’s side as he was assassinated should know that no man worth his salt will be intimated by the hateful words and deeds of others.

I suppose you voted for Obama while secretly wanting to cut off his nuts because ….he was black?

Jesse are you OK? Are we talking about the same man who fought for the civil rights of others? Now you have the audacity to take away someone’s “black card” (As if there should even be such an idiotic thing) because they voted against the health care bill?

Who died and made you the melanin fairy?

At precisely the point where we are in a so called “post racial America”, the weak Uncle Tom vs. the symbolic black Patriarchal Mandingo leadership meme once again attempts to strip power and virility from any person of color that dares to cut the cord with Democrats. Sounds like a plantation to me.

It is hard to imagine such idiocy but while we are speaking of race baiting morons, Chris Mathews was in rare form while describing a Sarah Palin book signing tour stop in Michigan:

I agree with Goldberg and while we are on the subject…Hey Chris Mathews how many black people live in your Upper Westside posh apartment complex in NYC?

Knitted Art: " Vollig Weichgestrikt" by Sarah Illenberger

Knitted Art: " Vollig Weichgestrikt" by Sarah Illenberger

My breakfast this morning:

A glass of soy milk

Bottled spring water

1 hard boiled egg

1 multivitamin

1 Omega 3 fatty acid softgel

I have practiced this diet for two weeks now. My grandmother died of heart disease at age 77. My uncle died of heart disease at age 58.  My mother died of heart disease at age 68.

Afrocity will not die of heart disease. What do I have going for myself that they did not?

1. Coming to terms that heart disease is a problem in my family is the first step.

Unfortunately, the  rest of my family is still in denial. I began seeing a cardiologist in 2005. I was the youngest person in the office and the doctor sort of laughed at me but I would rather be embarrassed than dead. My grandmother’s first heat attack was at age 35. She would later have another attack 17 years later, right in front of me when I was 4 years old.

I was home alone with her watching Sesame Street and she fell to the floor, dragging herself into the kitchen for the phone. The rotary dial clunker was wall mounted. She could not reach it and neither could I. Feeling helpless, I tried to run for help but grandmother had put the chain latchkey lock on the door and I could not unlock it.

Overwhelmed with fear, I crawled into a corner where I could not see her. I thought she was dying and it was my fault. Hours later my mother awakened me, grandmother had been taken to a hospital and I had slept through the entire ordeal.

obama pills2. I will make a special effort to eat healthier. Cut down on red meat, add more soy products, water, omega.Typical African diets in my family consisted of meals that were high in saturated fats and sodium. By comparison my diet has always shunned the greens and corn bread feasts that my mother loved so much. Even as a child, she found me to be a picky eater- favoring vegetables over fruit and eating noticeably smaller portions than my relatives. My uncle would make a culinary concoction of fat back, greens and cabbage in a huge dutch oven. You could see the film of yellow coagulated grease floating on top of his artery clogging masterpiece.

3. They had government health care. I do not.

When ill, the very decision of whether or not to seek medical assistance was question of whether or not you were at death’s door. My family did not trust doctors to keep them alive. Medical practitioners were to be feared and avoided at all cost. In the end, they would all wind up too soon on an autopsy table. I cannot say that I blamed them. Welfare health care was a nightmare for me. I was poked and prodded without much explanation about what was happening to my body. I cannot remember the name or face of a single doctor I had back in those days. I can vaguely recall the sea foam green medical card my mother received each month that she would push underneath a glass window to a nurse along with her public assistance identification card. The doctors never smiled at me, one even told me to get the hell out of his office after I coughed in his face because the tongue depressor activated my gag reflex. Mother hastily walked out with me, penicillin prescription  in hand.

As a college undergrad, I too noticed that I hated doctors. My counselors and college roommate helped me overcome that fear. I did not want to die of a heart attack or cancer. Looking for Marcus Welby was futile in the world of government health care I would listen to my classmates speak of wonderful relationships with their “family” doctors. There was no such MD in my life until I finally secured a job with benefits.

Doctor: So you are here because you have a cold but is everything else going okay for you? You just moved here from Texas. Did you have a family practitioner there.

Afrocity: No

Doctor: When was your last pap exam?

Afrocity: (counting in head) Five years ago.

Doctor: (frowning) We can’t have that. Let’s schedule you for one.

stitchy pooAfrocity: (shakes head) I don’t like those metal things.

Doctor: I don’t use those, not many doctors do anymore. Have you’ve been tested for AIDS? HPV virus?

Afrocity:(shakes head)

Doctor: Have you ever had your cholesterol checked…ever? (smiling) I am guessing that is a qualified No?

Afrocity: (silent) I have problems with gas and heartburn, they told me to take TUMS but it never helps.I go from diarrhea to constipation.

Doctor: Well let’s lets have you fully checked out. I mean the whole nine yards, blood, urine, pap smear, a physical. You need a wellness consultation and it sounds like you have IBS. Do you do breast self-exams?

Afrocity: I bee-what? No I have not done a breast exam, I have seen the charts though.


Doctor: Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It comes from stress, lots of women have it. You may also be lactose intolerant but we can’t know unless we test you my dear. Go to the desk and we can get you set up for all of these fun tests. You especially are overdue for a gynecological exam.

From that visit on, I began to trust doctor’s again. For anyone interested in finding out the truth in government health care, they should speak to people like me. Those who have actually experience it. Those in Canada and the UK who know what socialized medicine is and is not. So far, I have only heard about what is wrong with insurance companies and not what is right about government health care.

This is not about a partisan victory. This is about our health which is far more important than congressmen and Barack Obama kicking sand in each other’s faces at the playground.

With former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s op ed piece appearing in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, the Occulata palingenia haterus moonbats are out for blood.

In this article in The Atlantic by Marc Ambinder, it is posited that Sarah Palin is should not be seriously considered as a voice for the conservatives when there are other Republican’s such as Newt Gingrich who are more “serious”.

The Atlantic

Media Challenge: Will They Take The Palin Bait?

Sep 8 2009, by Marc Ambinder

Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate, has every right to submit an opinion piece on health care to the Wall Street Journal’s op-ed page, and they’ve got every right to print it.

But Palin’s existence in this debate does not (a) lend her voice any credibility and, beyond that, even if you believe that her experience as a state governor does give her at least a modicum of credibility, it does not follow that, because her voice is credible, it ought to be influential. Newt Gingrich is influential by rights; he’s done the work, come up with original ideas, and been in the trenches. (Replacing Medicare with vouchers…not new or remotely plausible, even if GOPers do well in the next two elections. Quoting Ronald Reagan talking about that type of proposal…not new. Etc.)

The media — by which I mean the cable news networks, primarily — will determine whether Palin’s view on health care becomes influential. There are many Republican, conservative health care spokespeople who have earned the right to speak for their party’s principals, and, truth be told, can recite the talking points (complete with Ronald Reagan quote) better than Palin and her writer can.  They’re the ones who should be offended if Palin’s op-ed becomes the voice of the opposition tomorrow, because Palin isn’t seen by most Americans as a particularly trenchent analyst of policy. Indeed, the reason why Palin’s team wants to get her pieces in publications like the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal is that, in this next phase of her political career, Mrs. Palin has to burnish her policy skills.  And the Journal is all too willing to lend some space to this project, because plenty of people will see the piece.

Sarah Palin novel 2

The Atlantic piece is being very presumptuous. Again the mainstream media assumes that anyone actually gives a damn about their opinion. According to them we should not listen to anything that Sarah Palin has to say or write about health care reform because she knows nothing about the issue despite being the governor of Alaska and a mother of five children. If having five children is not credited as “being in the trenches”, I don’t know what is.  And what of President Barack Obama’s times in the trenches on health care reform or any other important political issue? Ah, but this is addressed, the article continues:

Sarah Palin Novel 3…So here’s a challenge to the media: if you want to do justice to conservative ideas and find some balance in your coverage tomorrow, book serious Republicans with original ideas on your programs. If you don’t, Palin is giving herself a voice at your expense and through little effort of her own.

By implying, incidentally, that Palin gets help from a speechwriter, I mean to make an observation. Barack Obama didn’t draft his op-ed, either. But, reading Obama, it’s not a leap to believe that the ideas are truly his. Palin has no chops and no experience talking about health care and isn’t participating in this debate; the content of her op-ed piece isn’t original, and the points are points that Republicans make every day.

This is the reality. Palin has policy credibility problems. Big ones. A few op-eds aren’t going to help her. But if the media treats her as as a legitimate and influential voice today, she won’t need to do the hard work that will result in her learning more about policy and actually becoming conversant in the issues that she, as a potential presidential candidate, will deal with…


To summarize, Sarah Palin is accused of being unlike Barack Obama because she does not have any ideas of her own about health care reform.

And what is it exactly, that makes us so sure that Barack Obama has any ideas of his own about health care? Is it because his mother and grandmother both died of disease related illnesses? Or is it because he actually authored a piece of legislation on health care during his time as an Illinois state senator?

He did not you know.Obama never authored one piece of legislation as a senator. He voted “present” during much of his term and campaigned for the rest of it.

A crucial aspect of this scathing critique on Sarah Palin ability to influence conservative masses points to her lack of experience. However the sexist revisionist historians at The Atlantic seemed to have developed a case of collective amnesia when it comes to President Barack Obama’s lack of real in the trenches experience. Anyone who can recall Obama’s last prime time press conference on health care reform may vividly remember Obama’s droll dead pan teleprompter reading expression. It was obvious that what he was reading from the screen did not originate from dear leader’s mind. I was not certain that he wanted to be there. Did he read the bill that he allowed congress to write?

Can you remember that the only time Barack Obama showed any inclination that a single thought was his own was when he race baited the Cambridge Police Department? He actually smiled because that was the most comfortable moment for him during the entire press conference. See, this guy does have ideas of his own. What the ideas are about is the troubling issue. We will see tonight if Obama gives us more insight into his time in the trenches.

Liberal Hypocrisy Files: Just Say No To “Fake Hate Crimes” August 26, 2009

Seeing the displays of political dissent against Obama portrayed by liberals as insincere and astroturfing gives me more reason to be thankful that I am no longer a Democrat. In making such accusations they are woefully guilty of collective amnesia concerning their own history of impassioned protest. The latest scandal involves a liberal who actually orchestrated a “fake hate crime” in order to have citizens believe the guilty party was anti-health care reform protesters.

From Fox News

Colorado GOP Calls for Apology After Democratic Office Vandalism

The chairman of the Colorado Republican Party is calling on his Democratic counterpart to apologize for suggesting that an act of vandalism at Democratic Party headquarters was linked to opposition to President Obama’s push for health care reform.

State GOP Chairman Dick Wadhams told he was “stunned” by comments made by Democratic Party Chairwoman Pat Waak following the smashing of 11 windows at the Democratic headquarters early Tuesday morning.

Waak told the Denver Post that the vandalism, allegedly carried out by a former Democratic canvasser and who left behind an anti-health care reformer poster, was “an effort on the other side to stir up hate.” After learning about alleged vandal’s political past, Waak told the newspaper that “there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum.”

“I was stunned by [Waak] actually suggesting the act of vandalism had something to do with opposition to Obama’s health care reform,” Wadhams told Wednesday. “That is unfair and inappropriate to say that anybody who opposes Obama’s health care plan is somehow responsible for this despicable act of vandalism.”

Wadhams called on Waak to apologize to “everyone, who in good faith, opposes the president’s health care proposal,” saying her assertion was “terribly” irresponsible.

Waak, meanwhile, told that the shattered windows were directly in front of posters depicting President Obama and health care reform.

“If you look at the windows, that’s where the major smashes were done,” Waak said Wednesday. “To us, that indicates this is about health care reform.”

Maurice Schwenkler, 24, was arrested in Denver on Tuesday in connection to the vandalism on charges of criminal mischief. The shattered windows will cost roughly $10,000 or more to replace.

The Post reported that Schwenkler was paid $500 in November 2008 to walk door-to-door in support of Democrat Mollie Cullom, a candidate for the state House. Campaign records also show Schwenkler was among dozens of canvassers paid by a political committee called the Colorado Citizens’ Coalition.

Schwenkler was also reportedly arrested in St. Paul, Minn., on the last day of the 2008 Republican convention on charges of unlawful assembly.

Denver Police say they have not identified a motive in the incident. A second suspect is still at large. No injuries were reported.

Republican David Balmer, who defeated Cullom, said he thought the vandals might have trying to make Republicans look bad.

“This sounds like the type of Democratic tactic from the left fringe trying to make Republicans look mean-spirited,” Balmer told the Denver Post. “In this case, it blew up in their face. He was caught red-handed.”

While you are bound not to hear as much about this in the mainstream media as say oh the story of Ashley Todd, the Republican race baiter from the 2008  presidential campaign season, it should be mentioned that staging fake hate crimes should be denounced by all political parties.

People have the constitutional right to assembly regardless of political affiliation. If conservatives are being more vocal than normal, I say it is about time and liberals you will just have to get over it. Your plan of demonizing anti-health care reform protesters is predictably backfiring. I dare any liberal to claim that each and every liberal protest we have seen throughout was without yelling, provocative signage,  or outlandish fringe party behavior.  Indeed, it is time to realize that not everyone is on board with Obamacare and they have the right to express dissension whether that be at a rally, protest march, or town hall meeting.

In this important debate, I was happy to see Senator John McCain (R-AZ) host a town hall meeting on health care reform. I have always respected John McCain as a politician that could see different sides of an issue. I felt that his town hall proceeded in a civil and orderly fashion. Part II is especially interesting.
