Our headline graciously donated by linguistic expert Rachel Jeantel who because of her etymological skills and her 3.0 average is getting a fully paid four year college scholarship once the 19 year old high school student graduates from the 12th grade. If you don’t like our headline you must be a racist (like Jimmy Carter).
There are many people who won’t like our headline. They will pretend offense at the use of “retarded” and claim family members or friends of theirs have developmental issues that should not be demeaned. We’re not demeaning nuffin, we just be down with our homies (especially Homey Boo Boo Rachel Jeantel). So if you don’t like our headline… that’s retarded… and sir you are a racist and not as dope as we are.
And be aware, racism is everywhere these days. Rasmussen: Near-majority agrees with Zimmerman verdict, 48/34. Lordy, lordy!
We remember how Obama supporters promised Barack would “turn the page” on the past and all that racial stuff. But now things are much worse than ever before and racism is everywhere these days. As proof we have this right-on sista catch by HHS Secretary Sebelius: Opposing ObamaCare is like opposing civil rights in 1964, or something. Oh no she di’int!
You heard it girlfriend. She went there:
“Addressing the annual NAACP convention in Orlando, Fla., Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that opponents of Obamacare are the same kind of people who opposed civil rights legislation in the 1960s. [snip]
“The same arguments against change, the same fear and misinformation that opponents used then are the same ones opponents are spreading now. ‘This won’t work,’ ‘Slow down,’ ‘Let’s wait,’ they say. [snip]
“You showed it in the fight against lynching and the fight for desegregation. You showed it by ensuring inalienable rights are secured in the courtroom and at the ballot box. And you showed it by supporting a health law 100 years in the making.
“With each step forward, you said to forces of the status quo, ‘This will work,’ ‘We can’t slow down’ ‘We can’t wait,’ ‘We won’t turn back.’
Unfortunately for Sebelius and other race-baiters the truth is other than what they propose. Sebelius is either lying or does not know that the problem was Democrats back in 1964.
And the problem increasingly is Obama Dimocrats in 2013 too! The very Obama Dimocrats that attacked Obama’s health scam opponents are now the very same Obama Dimocrats denouncing the ObamaCare they supported and helped finance to passage. Yes, we mean Union leaders: ObamaCare will “destroy the very health and wellbeing” of America’s working class. Say Whaaaaaaaaaaaatttttt???
“Bear in mind that Big Labor went to bat for ObamaCare in a big way throughout the months-long debate over its passage. When Tea Party activists demonstrated to raise opposition to the legislation, unions like the Teamsters counterprotested, sometimes violently, in an attempt to intimidate conservatives into acquiescence. Unions spent big money in the 2010 election hoping to protect Democrats from the consequences of their votes on ObamaCare, arguing that the bill would help the working class by sticking it to insurers and fat cats.
Now that the law is about to be implemented, though, it suddenly looks awful to union leaders like Teamsters president James Hoffa, UFCW president Joseph Hanson, and UNITE-HERE president D. Taylor. The Wall Street Journal published a letter on Friday that the union leaders sent to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi expressing shock, shock that a massive and expensive government intervention would screw up the labor market:
Here come the racists, here come the racists, here come the racists:
“Union Letter: Obamacare Will ‘Destroy The Very Health and Wellbeing’ of Workers
Dear Leader Reid and Leader Pelosi:
When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.
Like millions of other Americans, our members are front-line workers in the American economy. We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.
Now this vision has come back to haunt us.
Since the ACA was enacted, we have been bringing our deep concerns to the Administration, seeking reasonable regulatory interpretations to the statute that would help prevent the destruction of non-profit health plans. As you both know first-hand, our persuasive arguments have been disregarded and met with a stone wall by the White House and the pertinent agencies. This is especially stinging because other stakeholders have repeatedly received successful interpretations for their respective grievances. Most disconcerting of course is last week’s huge accommodation for the employer community—extending the statutorily mandated “December 31, 2013” deadline for the employer mandate and penalties.
Time is running out: Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it. The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe. Perverse incentives are already creating nightmare scenarios:
First, the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly. The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.
Second, millions of Americans are covered by non-profit health insurance plans like the ones in which most of our members participate. These non-profit plans are governed jointly by unions and companies under the Taft-Hartley Act. Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.
And finally, even though non-profit plans like ours won’t receive the same subsidies as for-profit plans, they’ll be taxed to pay for those subsidies. Taken together, these restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable, and will undermine the health-care market of viable alternatives to the big health insurance companies.
On behalf of the millions of working men and women we represent and the families they support, we can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.
We believe that there are common-sense corrections that can be made within the existing statute that will allow our members to continue to keep their current health plans and benefits just as you and the President pledged. Unless changes are made, however, that promise is hollow.
We continue to stand behind real health care reform, but the law as it stands will hurt millions of Americans including the members of our respective unions.
We are looking to you to make sure these changes are made.”
Sorry racists – there is NO HOPE for CHANGE. You broke it, now you will pay you racists!
Racists, racists, racists, racists, racists….:
“The union leaders who signed this letter should all resign in disgrace — not because of the letter itself, but because the letter implicitly admits that they’ve been nothing but shills for the administration’s agenda without any thought of how those policies would impact membership. They spent millions of dollars collected from those workers to make their lives worse.”
