O’Reilly claims he ‘elevated’ debate by shouting about Obama’s ‘bullsh*t’ (via Raw Story )

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly says that by shouting “bullshit” and insisting liberal contributor Alan Colmes was “lying” when he said President Barack Obama had offered to reform Social Security, he has actually “elevated” the discussion for “the whole world.” O’Reilly opened his…

The Religious/Political Right’s Vocabulary & Phrase Book-Volume Two

I was looking for something in my files, and once again came across one of those articles that hardly seem dated.

Think about that for a minute.

The Religious/Political Right’s Vocabulary & Phrase Book-Volume Two

April 26, 2006

By Clint Willis

“Racially balanced” as in “The Republican Party is very racially
balanced.”

This phrase is used during hurriedly arranged photo ops after someone
of prominence has made the insinuation to the mainstream media that the
Religious/Political right is composed of mostly rich white men.

Someone is bound to utter this phrase just as you notice that all of
the women, blacks and hispanics in the group have suddenly been pushed
up into the front row smiling proudly, not realizing that behind them
the next solid three rows are the white guys grinning for the camera
because they know that they’re really the ones in charge.

“Judeo-Christian Values”
Note Judeo always comes first.

This phrase is used often and loudly when the right-wing Christian
section is emphasizing that they have generously included Jews in their
outrage about abortion, gay rights, or tax breaks for major
corporations.

Usually the next day the more extreme fundamentalists of the group give
a sermon to their followers stressing that while they love their Jewish
brothers (well, maybe just enough to get the election swung in their
favor), they must still realize that in order for Jews to get into
their heaven, they still must first accept Jesus Christ as their
savior.

Sort of how they feel about their private Golf Clubs.

“Pro-business liberal”

This one threw me the first time I saw it in print, because by rights,
according to all good conservatives, there is no such thing as a
“pro-business liberal”.

Apparently this phrase is employed to throw blame at liberal democrats
with their liberal businesses joining the liberal wing of the
Republican Party and ruining everything.

In other words, just throw the word “liberal” on anything to make it
sound bad or to assign or distract blame.

“God, America, and the flag”,

is the new holy trinity, replacing “Baseball, mom, and apple pie”.

You must worship all three equally or be branded a traitorous liberal
unchristian deviant.

“Budget Surplus”

is a phrase never used in mixed company (i.e. Republicans with
Democrats).

The budget surplus is what the Republican Congress proudly claimed as
theirs, not President Clinton’s, from the steps of the Capitol
Building.

In the late 90s the budget surplus was the direct result of their
“Contract with America”… well that is until GW spent it all at
Halliburton.

Now the political right wing would rather we didn’t mention it, and if
we do, they claim it didn’t really exist anyway and was just on
paper–shhhhhhh!

“Your facts are erroneous”

is a phrase used most often when they know Democrats are speaking the
truth, but they haven’t found time to “Google or Yahoo” something
opposing from a right-wing slanted website to refute it yet.

“Knee-jerk reaction”

translates to “They’ve intelligently reacted to something important
before we did, causing us embarrassment, so we’ll dismiss it as nothing
in order to distract the public.”

The press is currently having a knee-jerk reaction to rising gas prices
at the pump, but don’t worry… soon it’ll be “old news”.

Currently President Bush is stressing that we should leave prices as
they are (no matter how high they go) and instead use conservation and
alternate fuels.

Thus we preserve “big oil’s” profit line; which should cause another
“knee jerk” reaction from the voting public.

“Some of my best friends are gay”

They live about three miles from me.

My sister’s hairdresser’s maid introduced me to a plumber who lives
next door to them, but I can’t remember his name.

He says they’re nice people.

“This is all just old news!”

translates to “The public knows this is a problem we haven’t even come
close to solving yet, even though we’ve had plenty of time to look into
it, so we’ll just declare it unimportant!”

Example, “New Orleans is old news”

“Impeding Free speech”

translates to “Not permitting right-wing political or religious
propaganda to be prominently displayed in public buildings”.

See also:

“Violating the spirit of the First Amendment”

which translates to using the “Free speech amendment” to allow such
things as homosexual pornography, cuss words on the Sopranos,
publishing books criticizing George Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson,
or or or even The Los Angeles Times recently suggesting that Dick
Cheney resign!, or the press’ reporting of several state legislatures
(so far Vermont, California, and Illinois) that have
recently, or are planing to, call for the House of Representitives to
prepare to look into Bush’s impeachment.

“God created dinosaur bones, but not real dinosaurs!”

Sorry, I just had to include this one after I nearly fell out of my
chair laughing when I read it in print.

A religious nut actually asserted that God created the bones, and then
put them into the ground where we could find them, to test our faith
because the actual animals never really existed!.

“I am praying for you!”

Personally I’m disgusted every time George Bush utters this phrase.

He prayed for the space shuttle astronauts safe return,

he prayed for the miners in West Virginia,

and he prayed constantly for the victims of the World Trade Center to
be rescued along with the lives of the victims of the Pentagon.

All he was doing was kissing the asses of the Political/Religious
Right, and gave false and useless comfort to the victim’s families who
believed that his important presidential prayers would somehow be paid
more attention to by God… which they weren’t

“I do not believe in basing American Policy on poll numbers”.

Unless they agree with what George is saying at the moment.

“We are on the side of the political right!”.

Apparently they don’t seem to realize that that means which side of the
aisle they sit on, and not that they’re correct all the time.

White lie cake

This tale sent to me in the fall 0f 2006 as a result of being on a “clergy list” may bot be based on an actial event, but let me tell you, it very well could happen somewhere, sometime!! 🙂

~~~~~
Li’l White Lie Cake

Have you ever told a white lie? You are going to love this . . . especially all of the ladies who bake for church events.

Alice Grayson was to bake a cake for the Baptist Church ladies’ group bake sale in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; but she forgot to do it until the last minute.

She remembered it the morning of the bake sale; and after rummaging through her kitchen cabinets, she found an angel food cake mix and quickly made it while drying her hair, dressing and helping her son, Bryan, pack up for Scout camp.

But when Alice took the cake from the oven, the center had dropped flatter
than a pancake, and the cake was horribly disfigured. Actually, it dipped
severely in the center in a lopsided fashion, like a spavined old horse.

She said, “Oh dear, there’s no time to bake another cake.” This cake was so important to Alice because she did sooo want to fit in at her new church, and into her new
community of friends.

So, being inventive, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. She found a perfect solution in the bathroom — a roll
of toilet paper. She plunked it in and then covered it with icing.

Not only did the finished product look beautiful, it looked perfect!

Before she left the house to drop the cake by the church and head for work, Alice woke her daughter, Amanda, and gave her some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened at 9:30 and to buy that cake and bring it back home again. That way, no one need be any the wiser; and a minor personal disaster could be avoided.

When the daughter arrived at the sale, she found that the attractive perfect-looking cake had already been sold. So Amanda grabbed her cell phone and called her Mom.

Alice was horrified. She was beside herself. Everyone would know — what
would they think? Oh, my, she wailed! She would be ostracized, talked about, and
ridiculed.

All night long Alice laid awake in bed, thinking about people pointing their fingers at her and talking about her behind her back.

The next day, Alice promised herself that she would try not to think about the cake, and she would attend the fancy luncheon/bridal shower at the home of a friend of a friend and try to have a good time.

Actually, Alice didn’t really want to attend, because the friend-of-a- friend hostess was a snob who more than once had looked down her nose at the fact that Alice was a single parent, and not from any of the founding families of Tuscaloosa. But having already RSVPed, she couldn’t think of a believable excuse
to stay home.

The meal was elegant, the company was definitely upper crust old South, and to Alice’s horror, THE CAKE in question was presented for dessert.

She felt the blood drain from her face when she saw the cake. She started out
of her chair to rush to tell her hostess all about it; but before she could get to her feet, the Mayor’s wife said, “What a beautiful cake!”

Alice, who was still stunned, sat back in her chair when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say, “Thank you, I baked it myself.”

Alice smiled and thought to herself, “GOD is good!”

The Salesman Robot — it’s to laugh

Below is a variation of the warning to be careful what you pray for! 

The Salesman’s Robot

John was a salesman’s delight when it came to any kind of unusual gimmick. His wife Marsha had long ago given up trying to get him to change. One day John came home with another one of his unusual purchases. It was a robot that John claimed was actually a lie detector.

It was about 5:30 that afternoon when Tommy, their 11-year-old son, returned home from school. Tommy was over two hours late.

“Where have you been? Why are you over two hours late getting home?” asked John.

“Several of us went to the library to work on an extra credit project,” said Tommy. The robot then walked around the table and slapped Tommy, knocking him completely out of his chair.

“Son,” said John, “this robot is a lie detector. Now tell us where you really were after school.”

“We went to Bobby’s house and watched a movie,” said Tommy.

“What did you watch?” asked Marsha.

“The Ten Commandments,” answered Tommy. The robot went around to Tommy and slapped him again, knocking him off his chair once more. With his lip quivering, Tommy got up from the floor, sat down, and said, “I am sorry I lied. We really watched an R-rated movie.”

“I am ashamed of you, son,” said John. “When I was your age, I never lied to my parents.” The robot then walked around to John and delivered a whack that nearly knocked him out of his chair.

Marsha doubled over in laughter, almost in tears, and said, “Boy, did you ever ask for that one! You can’t be too mad with Tommy. After all, he is your son!”

With that the robot immediately walked around to Marsha and knocked her out of her chair.

People often say with pride, “I’m not interested in politics.” They might as well say, “I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future, or any future.”
    — Martha Gellhorn, writer/journalist   (1908-1998)

Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God.

SOME SANTA HO-HO’S AND NO-NO’S

At the rate we are going, and with the rise of the sport of “Sue then for anything!}”, the following could be real, if not now, real soon!! – Ninure da Hippie

SOME SANTA HO-HO’S AND NO-NO’S
By Peter Chianca

To: Mall Santas
From: Management

Welcome aboard in your new role as one of “Santa’s Helpers.” Please review the following guidelines carefully, so that the mall and its patrons can have a happy, healthy and non-litigious holiday season.

1.) As you’ve no doubt heard, “Ho Ho Ho” is no longer considered an acceptable
holiday greeting, having been deemed potentially offensive to women and
gardeners. The substitute “Ha Ha Ha” has also been banned, as it is possibly damaging
to a child’s self-esteem. Also, Santas overheard saying “Merry Christmas” will
be summarily removed from the premises. Instead, we recommend you listen
attentively to the children, nod, and affect a blank stare devoid of any emotion,
particularly fear. They can sense fear.

2.) Please keep in mind that not all children believe in Santa Claus or
celebrate Christmas. However, please make no attempt to determine this based on
physical cues, such as yarmulkes or “Proud Jehovah’s Witness” T-shirts, as this would
be considered profiling. If you have any questions, please consult the mall’s
attorney, who will be standing behind the fake snowman.

3.) Plump Santas are no longer considered “jolly.” Instead, they serve as a
bleak reminder of our nation’s struggle with obesity and are a poor role model to
our increasingly overweight and inactive children. Please make every effort to
appear slim and fit, and to encourage children to leave you celery and soy
products rather than cookies and hot chocolate on Christmas Eve. Also, please note
that smoking is permitted in the break room only.

4.) Please do not promise children that Santa will bring them anything in
particular, as promising a gift that the parents cannot afford or do not approve of
could result in a lengthy and expensive lawsuit. Be pleasant but non-committal.
If the child is persistent, try to distract him with one of the celery sticks
we now give out in lieu of candy canes; if that doesn’t work, send him behind
the snowman to speak to the attorney.

5.) It has been deemed inappropriate, and a serious legal risk, to have
children sitting on a strange bearded man’s lap. This year the children will sit on a
stool, separated from you by a sheet of soundproof Plexiglas. This also serves
the purpose of keeping you from being able to hear their gift requests (see No.
4).

6.) The concept of elves has been determined to be offensive to a host of
protected groups, including little people, pointy-eared people and people with high
squeaky voices. However, so as to give you the support you need, we are looking
at several possible replacements. Right now we’re leaning toward attorneys.

We’re sure that if you follow these simple guidelines you will succeed in
making the children’s visits with Santa as unremarkable and non-offensive as
possible. Welcome aboard the team here at the mall, and have a merry … a happy …
Oh, whatever.

Five Myths About Our Ailing Health Care System

This article was originally posted in 2008.

You would that in FOUR YEARS that somebody on the right or even in the middle would be tired of majing the same old, tired, excuses for denying millions of Americans affordable Geath care.

You would think would think...

The one thing that never ceases to amze me is how some people can truly upset over the idea that all Americans should have access to affordable- and where necessary free- health-care.

I would like to think when I am sitting nect to someone on the bus, or standing in some ine in public, that there are NOT people carrying some easily handled communicative disease because they cannot afford to go to the doctor.

I am angered of the number of people I have read about (and know), who have not been able to get treatment, some even dying needlessly because healt-care is so far out of reach, even if they have insurance

How long will “we” allow this to go on?

Five Myths About Our Ailing Health Care System
Sunday 23 November 2008

by: Shannon Brownlee and Ezekiel Emanuel, The Washington Post
    With Congress ready to spend $700 billion to prop up the U.S. economy, enacting health-care reform may seem about as likely as the Dow hitting 10,000 again before the end of the year. But it may be more doable than you think, provided we dispel a few myths about how health care works and how much reform Americans are willing to stomach.

    1. America has the best health care in the world.
    Let’s bury this one once and for all. The United States is No. 1 in only one sense: the amount we shell out for health care. We have the most expensive system in the world per capita, but we lag behind many developed countries on virtually every health statistic you can name. Life expectancy at birth? We rank near the bottom of countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, just ahead of Cuba and way behind Japan, France, Italy, Sweden and Canada, countries whose governments (gasp!) pay for the lion’s share of health care. Infant mortality in the United States is 6.8 per 1,000 births, more than twice as high as in Japan, Norway and Sweden and worse than in Poland and Hungary. We’re doing a better job than most on reducing smoking rates, but our obesity epidemic is out of control, our death rate from prostate cancer is only slightly lower than the United Kingdom’s, and in at least one study, American heart attack patients did no better than Swedish patients, even though the Americans got twice as many high-tech treatments.

    Moreover, the quality of health care is different in different parts of the country. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have issued a list of 26 measures of quality, such as making sure that heart-attack patients being discharged from the hospital get a prescription for a beta blocker or aspirin to help reduce the risk of a second attack. It turns out that quality is all over the map, and it isn’t necessarily better in the places we might expect, such as academic medical centers. Worse still, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), there appears to be no connection between how much Medicare and other payers spend on patients in different parts of the country and the quality of the care the patients receive. You are no more likely to get that beta blocker or aspirin in Los Angeles than in Portland, even though Medicare spends twice as much per beneficiary in Los Angeles.

    2. Somebody else is paying for your health insurance.
    Nope. Even when your employer offers coverage, he isn’t reaching into his own pocket to cover you and your fellow employees; he’s reaching into your pocket, paying you lower wages than he would if he didn’t have to pay for your health insurance.

    Rising health-care costs are partly to blame for stagnant wages. Over the past five years, health insurance premiums have risen 5.5 times faster on average than inflation, 2.3 times faster than business income and four times faster than workers’ earnings. Four times. That’s why wages have been nearly flat since the 1980s, even as U.S. productivity has been going up. In effect, about half the money you should be earning for being more productive is being sucked up by ever more expensive health-insurance premiums.

    If you pay taxes, you’re also paying for the health care provided through state and federal programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, the Veterans Administration and the military. All told, the average family of four is coughing up $29,000 a year for health care through taxes, lower wages and out-of-pocket medical expenses.

    3. We would save a lot if we could cut the administrative waste of private insurance.
    The idea that we could wring billions of dollars in savings this way is seductive, but it wouldn’t really accomplish that much. For one thing, some administrative costs are not only necessary but beneficial. Following heart-attack or cancer patients to see which interventions work best is an administrative cost, but it’s also invaluable if you want to improve care. Tracking the rate of heart attacks from drugs such as Avandia is key to ensuring safe pharmaceuticals.

    Let’s just say that we could wave a magic wand and cut private insurers’ overhead by half, to what the Canadian government spends on administering its health-care system – 15 percent. How much would we save? Not as much as you may think. Private insurers pay a little more than a third of what we spend on health care, which means that we’d cut a little more than 5 percent from our total budget, or about $124 billion. That’s not peanuts, but it’s not even enough to cover everybody who’s currently uninsured.

    More to the point, we only get to save it once. That’s because administrative waste isn’t what’s driving health-care costs up faster than inflation. Most of the relentless rise can be attributed to the expansion of hospitals and other health-care sectors and the rapid adoption of expensive new technologies – new drugs, devices, tests and procedures. Unfortunately, only a fraction of all that new stuff offers dramatically better outcomes. If we’re worried about costs, we have to ask whether a $55,000 drug that prolongs the lives of lung cancer patients for an average of a few weeks is really worth it. Unless we find a cure for our addiction to the new but not necessarily improved, our national medical bill will continue to skyrocket, regardless of how efficient insurance companies become.

    4. Health-care reform is going to cost a bundle.
    Only if you think that covering the uninsured is our only priority. Yes, making health care available to all citizens is the right thing to do. But it isn’t the only thing to do. We also have to fix the spectacularly wasteful and expensive way doctors and hospitals deliver care.

    Our physicians are working within a truly dysfunctional, often chaotic system that prevents them from caring for us properly. Between 50,000 and 100,000 patients die each year from preventable medical errors. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1.7 million Americans acquire an infection while in the hospital and nearly 100,000 of them die from it. Laboratory imaging tests are routinely repeated because the originals can’t be found. Patients with such chronic illnesses as heart failure and diabetes land in the hospital because their physicians fail to monitor their condition. When patients have multiple doctors, there’s often nobody keeping track of the different medications, tests and treatments each one prescribes.

    Our doctors and hospitals are failing to provide us with care we need while delivering a staggering amount that we don’t need. Current estimates suggest that as much as 20 to 30 percent of what we spend, or about $500 billion, goes toward useless, potentially harmful care.

    There are two bright spots. One: We can improve the quality of care and cut costs without rationing. There are models out there for how to do it right – the Mayo Clinic, the Geisinger Clinic in Pennsylvania, the Cleveland Clinic and California’s Kaiser Permanente are just a few of the organized group practices that are doing a better job for less. Their doctors are better than average at using the best medical evidence available. They’re more likely to be using electronic medical records, which can help keep track of patients who have multiple physicians and need complex care. And they’re less likely to provide unnecessary care.

    Two: Even moderate reform of the delivery system would improve care and save money. The Lewin Group’s analysis shows that a bill proposed by Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, calling for a more comprehensive overhaul of the health-care system than either McCain’s plan or Obama’s could actually insure everyone and save $1.4 trillion over 10 years. More reform is cheaper.
    
5. Americans aren’t ready for a major overhaul of the health-care system.
    We may be readier than you think. A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that only 7 percent of Americans rate our health-care system excellent. Nearly 40 percent consider it poor. A whopping 70 percent believe it needs major changes, if not a complete overhaul.
    
Now is not the time to think small, to cover a few million Americans and leave the bigger job of controlling costs and improving quality for another day. We can’t afford not to reform the delivery system as soon as possible. At 17 percent of gross domestic product, health care is the biggest single sector of the economy, and it’s consuming a larger and larger proportion every year. According to CBO projections, health care will account for 25 percent of GDP by 2025 and 49 percent by 2082. That’s simply unsustainable. Any plan that reforms health care has to do more than simply cover the uninsured. The nation’s health and wealth depend on it.
