“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,… Luke 18:20

Richard Nixon was forced to resign for lying about a cover-up. If that is the standard for a President lying to the people, then President Obama needs to resign for such a despicable lie as telling people their lives are not going to change when they are going to be turned upside down both financially and emotionally. Why in the world does a large portion of America have to have their perfectly fine health insurance policies cancelled and spend hours finding new coverage. The only reason they have to go through this torture is from President Omarxist lying that they would not lose their policies or their doctors if they liked them, period.

There was no chance of his signature plan being passed if he told them this nightmare was going to occur. If he said people would lose their plans they have had for years and decades to be thrown into a more expensive and higher deductible plan, the outrage would have stopped his program cold. All the opposition needed was one Dem during the Christmas Eve massacre and it was over. Even after the craven power grab which broke all of the Senate and Congressional rules, he had to promote his plan with lie after lie after lie. He told the same lie to the American people over thirty times to placate their skepticism and doubt. While he was lying and calling the Tea Partiers the liars as well as every other name in the book, the approval of his plan never had a majority or even popular with Americans.

After losing both houses due to his monstrosity he increased the lies and doubled down on his ferocity with the help of the Mainstream Marxist Media to sell his plan. If his plan was exposed for the disaster that it is there would be a very good chance Romney would win. So he and his allies hid the fact the American people had no possibility of keeping their plans or doctors even while he promised they would be able to, period!

He needs to either postpone his namesake plan for a year to give the country a chance to vote on it or resign, period. The country has to decide if it wants to destroy the best healthcare system in the world and replace it with nationalized healthcare. It is a debate that is long overdue and one that is looking us in the eyes. Within six months everyone is going to understand this is nothing more than a transitory program to expand Medicare to every person in America and a cradle to grave ownership of them. This was sold as a plan that would only affect the thirty million who were uninsured and now everyone knows it is going to affect every citizen in a very bad way.

The people deserve a chance to be heard on something that is going to disrupt every one of their lives both financially and emotionally. People are comfortable with their plans and their doctors and do not want to be thrown into an exchange to be dictated on what they can and cannot have for coverage. This may be fine for the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, but not for a country which prided itself on freedom. The people never had a chance to see it or hear about the high deductibles or premiums until now and they are beginning to let their displeasure be known. He needs to resign for lying numerous times to the American people with full knowledge of what his dictates meant.

The website is simply a prelude of what is to come when people try to file claims or doctors attempt to get permission to provide even the simplest of procedures. What will happen when the same people who designed this website attempt to design one to control the entire healthcare system when they have their utopian nationalized healthcare? Not only is it open to massive political and financial corruption just like this website, it will be less functioning than this one. You will be attempting to go to your doctor through the IRS with all of those forms and phone calls. You will have a bureaucrat standing between you and your doctor making sure you fill out all the proper forms necessary for said procedure. Your entire life history will be necessary including incomes and age to determine risk reward of the procedure. Not your risk reward, but the government’s.

We finally have full knowledge that Premier Omarxist lied to us numerous times about his plan and is still lying. We know and he knows this plan is unworkable and will result in nationalized medicine. We have a huge imposition coming at us thanks to his lies and he needs to make it right. Either he is the most heartless dictator since Hitler, or he has to let the American people off the hook for a year. The only fair thing for the people he says he cares so deeply for is to give them a year to vote for Obamacare and barring that step down. If he were a man of integrity he would resign, period.

Pray America is Waking Up

Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Bray’s. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.

You are not the only one. I'm sure you know, but most probably do not, that he was still on heavy meds from the back problems/surgery during the debate. Thus the forgetfulness.

In Texans we believe. Wouldn't it be interesting if Perry and Cruz challenged each other for the nomination.

Yes, we've been seeing less of him since his gastric banding surgery.

It should be interesting. Now that he's (supposedly) the leading Republican contender for 2016, the MSM will be sharpening their knives.

(Chances that anyone will even mention that Hillary is 15 years older than Christie, will be in her 70th year in January 2017, and has suffered a stroke? About 0.00000001%)

The problem for Perry:

The MSM would show the video of his memory lapse* over and over and over. Although, they didn’t bother to show similar Obama lapses — including the 7+ minutes of uhs and hmmmms at one town hall.

Perry has one of the best records, considering how Texas has fared during the Obama years compared to many other states.

[* Most of ‘us’ realize the lapse was probably due to the pain medication he was on, as he has just had back surgery a couple of weeks before entering the 2012 primaries.]

Is the pain medication the reason that Rick Perry looked at me through the TV camera during one of the debates and told me that if I don’t want to support his favorite illegal aliens then I have no heart? I don’t care if Rick Perry wants to spend his own money on his favorite charity or if everybody in Texas wants to spend their own money on their very favorite charity like sending illegals to college, but Mr. Perry crossed the line from conservative to lecturing liberal with that remark. And I don’t think it was medication that caused that to happen.

The MSM is orgasmic over Christie, and they'll ask the following in their subtle and sneaky ways:

"Please, tell us again, governor, how the Tea Party will destroy the GOP and how they'll never, ever, win an election against Hillary."

"Isn't Ted Cruz a total wacko who only wants to obstruct the president and prevent his glorious transformation of America?"

The website is simply a prelude of what is to come when people try to file claims or doctors attempt to get permission to provide even the simplest of procedures

And just wait till they start issuing orders to the doctors to match client with the care required....and prescriptions....don't forget all those complex prescription orders.

I see not just amputations on the wrong limb....but on the wrong patient.

and don't expect quick response for a broken arm:

And so you have an acute appendix....?

Mark Wattson, 35, from Swindon may have been the victim of botched surgery after he had to have his appendix removed twice

To his shock, surgeons from the same team told him that not only was his appendix still inside him, but it had ruptured - a potentially fatal complication.

In a second operation it was finally removed, leaving Mr Wattson fearing another organ might have been taken out during the first procedure.

The blunder has left Mr Wattson jobless, as bosses at the shop where he worked did not believe his story and sacked him.

Mr Wattson told of the moment he realised there had been a serious mistake.

'I was lying on a stretcher in terrible pain and a doctor came up to me and said that my appendix had burst,' he said.

'I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I told these people I had my appendix out just four weeks earlier but there it was on the scanner screen for all to see.

'I thought, "What the hell did they slice me open for in the first place?"

'I feel that if the surgery had been done correctly in the first place I wouldn't be in the mess I am today. I'm disgusted by the whole experience.'

Mr Wattson first went under the knife on July 7 after experiencing severe abdominal pain for several weeks. He was discharged but exactly a month later he had to dial 999 after collapsing in agony. Mr Wattson

Mr Wattson was readmitted to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon after his appendix ruptured.

Nurse will see you now

Sit back and enjoy your Obamacare.

FACE THE NATION (CBS): Leon Panetta, former defense secretary and CIA director

Good, they can ask if he got the order at 5pm or “immediately” when the phone call came in at 3:42pm?

The TOC agent called Washington at the 'top of the incident', 342pm. At 5pm the President is already aware of the attack from 'when we received that phone call', just updated on the fire. Panetta's 'Soon after the initial reports' is 1 hour 20 minutes later, which doesn't jive with "when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure"...Will FACE THE NATION (CBS) fail on clarifying this?

Background;

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57544719/timeline-how-benghazi-attack-probe-unfolded/

9:40 p.m. (3:40 p.m. ET): Gunfire and an explosion are heard. A TOC agent sees dozens of armed people over security camera flowing through a pedestrian gate at the compound’s main entrance. It is not clear how the gate was opened.

The agent hits the alarm and alerts the CIA security team in the nearby annex and the Libyan 17th of February Brigade, one of several powerful militias serving as a de facto security presence in Benghazi. The embassy in Tripoli and the State Dept. command center were also alerted.

11 p.m. (5 p.m. ET): Just ahead of the weekly meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey, White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa. The president and those officials discuss possible responses to the situation.

http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/Panetta-Benghazi-Testimony20130207.pdf

Soon after the initial reports about the attack on Benghazi, General Dempsey and I met with President Obama and he ordered all available DoD assets to respond to the attack in Libya and to protect U.S. personnel and interests in the region.

TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/22/transcript-presidential-debate-on-foreign-policy-at-lynn-university/

“Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way;”

If not let’s make one...

My list:
McCain
Graham
Durbin
Biden*
Hagel*
Shumer
Feinstein
Boxer
Pelosi
Wasserman-Schultz
Carl Levin
Peter King
Axelrod

The names on the list are chosen not only because they are idiots, but also due to the number of repeat Sunday morning appearances they make. Biden and Hagel haven’t made many appearances since Biden became VP and Hagel left Nebraska, but they really used to, as much as McCain and Graham today, so I’ll leave them on the list.

Brilliant post as usual buddy.

The country has to decide if it wants to destroy the best health-care system in the world and replace it with nationalized health-care.

Seldom is this point ever brought up by the drivebys. We had the best healthcare system in the world. It was done through private enterprise with 85% covered. The rest were covered through various methods, not always pretty but covered. the other 15% could have been covered with ease.

The entire system should not have been purposely destroyed in favor of an ultimate single payer communist plot which was simply a smokescreen to nationalize 18% of the economy.

Instead of keying in on the economy which was and still is a disaster zero decided to destroy the best healthcare system ever known to man and created one where hardly anyone is covered. Those that are at a huge cost that few can afford.

Sheer chaos and Cloward Piven induced destruction of the welfare system is where 0'Care leads as well as the aforementioned nationalization of 18% of the economy.

I tried to find the skinny on Perry one day. Researched for hours and hours only came up with a few complaints mostly leading back to the same source. Only thing that kept coming ups was he seems to have the bubba syndrome when it comes to rousting chicks. Seems his staff has a lot of cleaning up to after his sexcapades which are tough if not impossible to document.

You get the picture that something is going on there but its really tough to get to and document.

The list Gutfeld used was all Democrats in the Senate; most of them are from red or purple states, and I think all of them are up for re-election in 2014.

And I don't think McCain or Graham are officially Democrats yet, so they would not count on this version of the table.

Morning AB, All….sang at 8:30 am mass.

Thank you AB for doing this thread, as always. Got all the Sunday talk shows on DVR and am watching.

Have greatly enjoyed Obama’s discomfort over his lying and his ridiculous “apology”.

We are not stupid out here in la-la land where we carry this country on our backs. We have kids and they lie all the time. Well maybe YOUR kids lie but mine don’t….heh.

The pundits want to talk about it forever, of course, it’s what they do. Those of us with lives that don’t involve talking for a living know he lied and we will deal with him like we do all liars, silly us with our absurd common sense.

We’ll just refuse to believe anything he says again. Not that we did believe him much before but I’m jus’ sayin’.

So my big news this week, as I am catapulted to a strange fame down here in the swamps, is my new career as….TADA..

….A STANDUP COMEDIAN!!!

Yes I have the whole “act” on tape and in due course I will put up the link that yon reader might enjoy.

Cause tween you and I folks, and I say with all due modesty….I was the best act of the night.

What was I?

A nun, of course.

Last night my church had its first annual Talent Show which I was co-pilot in putting on, gathering talent and star of that nun stunt. I was terrified all day yesterday as I’d NEVER did a comedy act before in my life.

The church actually bought me a nun costume!

And I told several really good Catholic jokes!

I watched the tape folks and dag, I was good. My timing was spot on….and let’s not forget I had to improvise. What I had to do was show up out of nowhere, dressed in my nun’s outfit, while the MC asked me who I was and what did I want. I had to walk through the audience carrying this yardstick and ad lib with the seated attendees. I chose my own granddaughter for one of these interactions.

I told my jokes on the stage and I just wanted it to be over with. The crowd was rolling in the aisles. We had another comedian there and I’m sorry folks, allegedly he was an opening act for Jonathan Winters but my act was waaaaaaaay better, taking my prejudice into account.

I am currently reading a book called “Rediscover Catholicism” by Matthew Kelly, which I love and which will, literally, change my life. My church gave every registered parishioner a free copy, even mailing it out to those who didn’t pick it up after mass. At my age I thought I’d read all the great books but this one is the greatest I’ve read in my life.

The title leaves one to believe it’s all about Catholicism, which it is, but it’s as much about Christianity as most anything. I see cherished truths in the words and feel renewed.

Anyway I ended my comedy act with one of my favorite quotes from the book, and to the surprise and applause of the attendees, almost 200 strong and we sold out and had to turn many away.

I’d told my Catholic jokes to a mostly Catholic audience, asked them to raise their hands if they were Catholic.

“Catholics aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves,” I said from the stage, fully dressed, mind you, as a nun. “Just remember, whatever you may feel about the Catholic church, EVERY DAY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FEEDS SIX MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS THE PLANET”.

I use caps on purpose, as it my wont...as I raised my voice for emphasis.

“The Church never asks the poor if they are Catholic. The Church just asks if they are hungry”.

Man I had tears shining across the room, doggone right, be proud of your religion, the only religion started by Jesus Christ Himself! People were hugging me, telling me how much they loved me, that I am their hero….hey,. Yon readers….remember that these people have seen me in the newspaper, on the local TV, now the comedy act. I am not deserving of all this love but by golly God’s got a plan for me, I know He does, and I am but His lowly servant.

The book says that new saints and leaders will rise up and change the course of history-the book is very conservative by the way, it’s not politically numb is what I’m saying here. Somehow, someway, God’s got a plan for me and I’m just following His guidance.

If you want to see my act, which was only about 5 minutes long , tops, hold on and I’ll get the link. My daughter put it up on Facebook and not sure how to provide a link to it.

Here’s more of that health care insurance reform bill apology;
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/11/obama-tells-americans-losing-coverage-im-sorry/

“I regret very much that what we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want them, as opposed to because they’re forced into it.”

Incoherent, just like the economic policies, foreign policy,...being forced into a 'better' policy? Who, that is paying for it, has even been offered a better policy value?

a 'better' policy

The mandate "Guaranteed Issue" does not make it a better policy. It makes it an awful policy.

It shouldn't even be called "insurance" at that point.
