Obama is Going to Fail

David Langford, O.D. on March 4th, 2009 under Asides •  5 Comments

The mainstream media and the White House are trying to alienate Rush Limbaugh because of his comment, now a meme, “I want Obama to fail.”

Rush is always right. I would have said, “Obama is going to fail, and I want everyone to see that he fails because he is a liberal and so are his policies; therefore, stop voting for democrats!”

But Rush is more succinct and combined those three phrases into one simple sentence.

Ronald Reagan said, “Government is not the answer to your problems, government is the problem!” The Obama administration and current liberal controlled Senate and House are speedily trying to turn America into a socialist/communist nation. We hear the Big Media incredulously ask, “So, you want Obama to fail, and you want the economy to collapse?”

Um…Obama will fail, and I want everyone to see that it’s because of his policies that the economy is collapsing. Capitalism and freedom, as set up by the Founding Fathers of our nation, is what drove the U.S.A. to be a super power.

Our nation’s big government/social agenda problems started out because of two things:

  1. Originally, the founding fathers only wanted land owners to vote. They knew government decisions would directly effect people with “skin in the game.” Now every bum on the street can cast their vote for who ever will promise government handouts.
  2. The 17th Amendment. Why do we have our House congressmen voted in by people of each state and the Senators also voted by the people of each state. The founding Fathers meant for the Senators to be elected only by each State’s legislature. This would truly insulate them from public opinion polls.

These two factors in combination have lead to elected officials promising tax dollars, our money, for causes that we wouldn’t support on our own. I would never fund abortions. I would never pay for some other person’s health care- they can pay for their own! I would never pay people not to work. I would never loan money to people who have no hope of repaying it. Yet, here we have it.

And it’s only going to get worse, comrades.

By the way, stop voting for democrats and start electing conservatives who will dismantle big government so that we can keep our money. The more money we have, the more money we can donate to our charities which can provide soup and a cot to homeless people- temporarily. So called “trickle down economics” rewards those who are willing to work harder and smarter. It also works better than Soviet Union economics.


Government Will Take Insurance Money

David Langford, O.D. on February 9th, 2009 under Optoblog •  2 Comments

I had misplaced a BlueCross insurance payment check at the bottom of a pile of papers. By the time I found it, I had missed the 90 day deadline to cash it.
Click here to see actual letter from BCBS
The other day I got a letter in the mail. They were wondering if I needed it reissued. What was very interesting to me is that if I didn’t respond, the law required BlueCross to pay the money to the state of Utah!

So, I wonder if patients should be forced to do the same thing? Or what about doctors who owe patients an overpayment refund? Should we be forced to pay the government if they never cash the check? I guess it won’t matter soon anyway because the way things are heading we’ll all be working for the government. Thanks for reading, comrade.

Change I Can’t Believe

David Langford, O.D. on November 6th, 2008 under Asides, Optoblog •  2 Comments

So just over half the country elected Obama. I seem to recall him saying:

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it,’’ Obama said. But the Illinois senator could still see skeptics in the crowd, particularly on the faces of several men at the back of the room.
So he tried again. “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said

Well, guess what, he now has the votes in both the house and senate. So, what is on his agenda?
Taking away our guns. This just in from the “Office of the President-Elect” at Change.gov:

Address Gun Violence in Cities: …Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn’t have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

First of all, the Second Amendment issue is not just an urban issue. Also, why would a black rifle or AK-47 be on the agenda? How many crimes are committed each day with an AK? Even if it were 100%, when you outlaw the AK, the criminals won’t care because they get their guns illegally anyway! Also, our beloved “assault weapons” are the ones we need to protect us against government tyranny. AKs aren’t meant for deer hunting. They are meant to kill the bad guys. Us law abiding folks only use them in a self/family defense situation. Why would the government want to take that away? What does Obama’s government have in store for us that they want our defensive rifles taken away ahead of time?

Look, I’m just an optometrist, but I know there’s a reason why the Second Amendment was placed directly next to the First Amendment.

Also, he speaks with two tongues. You can’t “respect the Second Amendment” and in the same breath ban private sale of firearms and ban entire classes of firearms commonly used for self/family defense. He’s a big liar. Thank you, America, for being so in love with Obama that you failed to identify exactly what change you were voting for.

Hey, Obama. Arming law-abiding citizens keeps America safe. Disarming law-abiding citizens makes America unsafe and ripe for tyranny and oppression.
