Alabama Tea Party leader delivers epic
comparison of ObamaCare and
‘Lord of the Rings’

Yellowhammer News(ALA), by Cliff Sims

Original Article

Posted By:Common Sense Girl, 12/20/2013 10:26:38 AM

Wetumpka Tea Party president Becky Gerritson was one of the speakers at Monday’s launch of the 60 Plus Association’s Alabama chapter. The title of the event was “Alabamians Share Their ObamaCare Stories,” and boy did Gerritson have a story to share. Gerritson said she was asked to explain in five minutes or less how ObamaCare will affect the people in the audience. She said she could do it in less than one minute by using “Lord of the Rings” as a metaphor.

Comments:
As many on this site have said from the beginning, Obamacare was NEVER about healthcare. Becky presents an insightful and fresh look at what Obamacare represents.

One Law to rule them all
The IRS to find Them
One Law to bind them all
And in the end enslave them

Isn´t this the lady who has already been strip searched by the IRS?

If so, then she´s got nothing to worry about. If not, I suggest she hire security, food tasters and a good accountant.

The problem for the Regime and its running dog lackeys is that there are an awful lot of folks ~ millions in fact ~ who if the only choice is to spend their money to kill somebody ~ a baby for example ~ would prefer to use that same money to restart the Civil War .......................

Thanks poster, I to appreciate the wisdom and simplicity of the tea party leader who made this comparison. At it´s root it is a clash of fundamental values disguised as health care!

A must read! In fact, that would make a very strong commercial to run during the bowl games.

Oh yes, Chris Matthews is right, The Dark Lord walks among us and plays golf in Hawaii. Too bad we can´t call 911. There is a Great Battle brewing. The forces of good will fight the supreme battle for liberty and freedom from oppression against the sweeping growing powers of Darkness fundamentally transforming this nation. The Revolutionary War II will be waged and The Declaration of Independence will be re-issued declaring independence from The Dark Lord of Mordor. These words will once again have true meaning: " And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."
Let´s roll.

For those who can´t wrap their little mental alligator arms around reality, maybe this allegory will be helpful.

Common core compromise
is dead, so what went wrong?

Only days ago it appeared that Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardnendale, and Sen. Del Marsh, R-Anniston, had reached an agreement to end the Alabama Senate’s showdown over Common Core State Standards. Although the bill, SB443, was not the full repeal that many grassroots activists had pushed for, it would keep Common Core from expanding into new subjects and give local school boards the power to opt out all together. 12 senators co-sponsored the bill, including Beason and Marsh. The Business Council of Alabama and the state’s education establishment continued to fight it, but momentum seemed to be on the bill’s

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Why does Hillary Clinton hate America? That is the question that should be on everyone’s mind as she embarks on a worldwide tour to plug her forthcoming memoir. Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night. Clinton’s appearance on a panel with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, moderated by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, ran

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Wellington -He may be only eight months old. But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning. Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

   

 



 
For Dems, a problem with seniors

The Hill [DC], by Alexandra Jaffe    Original Article

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

American public school students sick of the smaller portions and healthier offerings they get at lunch thanks to Michelle Obama´s anti-obesity initiatives are sounding off on social media. Just a month after school lunch participation saw the steepest drop on record following the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, students tired of going home hungry are making sure the first lady knows why. ´I´ll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch,´ tweeted one angry student. [Snip] The extremely negative reviews have over a million kids refusing to eat the offerings, an ironic result for legislation meant to combat
