Misrepresentation

Misrepresentation

 

My Congressional misrepresentative Crazy Mazie Hirono (D-HI) sent out a newsletter proudly proclaiming that she’s against the people of Hawai’i in the Second District where I live.  In her newsletter she states that she voted against the Ryan budget because she claims it will harm the priorities of communities and the people of Hawai’i.  That’s a flat out lie!

Hirono outlines 10 points where she misrepresents the Ryan budget with Socialist Democrat talking points.  Each point is a complete distortion of the Ryan budget.  Hirono would rather keep with the failed policies of the Obama regime.

Let’s take a look at her poorly defined excuses for not voting for a stronger Hawai’i:

1)      Ends Medicare as we know it:  Medicare as we know it, is going broke.  The Ryan plan brings Medicare back into solvency.  Medicare is already in the RED and will eventually run out of money.  Hirono would rather keep propping up a system going broke.  Doctors are starting to turn away Medicare patients.  Ryan’s voucher plan would give more flexibility to the patient to choose and decide their medical needs.  Under the current plan, the patient and the doctor must follow government rules that restrict how Medicare money is spent.  In effect, keeping the government between you and your doctor.  It is well known that AARP is a stooge for Obamacare, that catastrophe of a healthcare plan soon to be declared Unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.  Social Security is going broke, the government has spent the money that was promised; there are only IOU’s left in Social Security trust.  The only thing Hirono’s budget does is keep our money in government hands to further misspend it recklessly.

2)      Repeals the Affordable Care Act: Also known as Obamacare.  And YES!  We want that Obamanation REPEALED!  It is 2,700 pages of bad law!  Why else is the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) giving waivers away!  Waivers mostly to Unions and Obama cronies.  It is well known that without the waivers, companies would have dropped their employee healthcare plans, well before the Government Insurance Exchange programs will have started in 2014.  The excuse of insurance discrimination is flat out wrong.  Obamacare will discriminate against patients and doctors through a 15 member panel of unelected, but appointed, bureaucrats.  This unelected panel, (a.k.a. Death Panels) will decide if you will get any healthcare.  They will focus on cost and not care.  This panel will judge your eligibility for healthcare by your taxable worthiness. In other words, if you not paying enough in taxes to support the system, you will receive rationed care.  Why else does Obamacare force parents to insure their children till 26 years of age?  Because the law assumes the child’s taxable worthiness will reach the level needed to prop up Obamacare.  Someone has to pay for Obamacare and the law assumes 26 years of age is that age level that reaches the workforce as a fully paying taxpayer.  Seniors and retirees, on the other hand, will receive rationed care.  Obama said it himself; “Maybe your Mother should take the Pill!”  Preventing insurance discrimination for pre-existing conditions can be made a law by itself.  Insurance is not healthcare.  Insurance is a means to healthcare and should be treated separately.  As Obamacare become more online, the costs are going up.  You won’t be able to keep your doctor.  You won’t be able to keep your insurance.  What will result, will be a two tiered healthcare system where the very rich will be able to afford health care, and everyone else will have hospital emergency rooms just to get basic healthcare.  That’s the future of Obamacare.  Is the age of consent now going to be 26 years of age?

3)      Attacks Women’s Health Care:  That’s a total lie! A manufactured scare tactic the Socialist Democrats like Hirono are using to try and scare women.  Insurance discrimination is a falsehood!  Insurance is not healthcare, but a means to acquiring it.  A simple law to prevent insurance companies from discriminating anyone, regardless of either gender, age or precondition, doesn’t need to be in a wieldy 2,700 pages of bureaucratic nonsense disguised as healthcare.  This scare tactic Hirono and her Socialist partners in crime are playing on the American people’s fears is shameful.  There is no proof that the Ryan plan discriminates against women.  That is a simply a lie, and Hirono knows it.  What Hirono wants to do is make everyone pay for abortions and contraceptive services.  There is nothing in the Ryan budget that prevents women from healthcare, that’s the bottom line.  Shame on Hirono for promoting a lie to her constituents.

4)      Eliminates Brand USA, our nation’s travel promotion arm: The question is, why do we need this program?  Wouldn’t a program like this be better administered through private enterprise?  The answer is a resounding YES!  The mission of Brand USA is to encourage international visitation to the United States.  With the debt burden that Obama has done in just 3 short years, something has to go!  The taxpayer money spent marketing the American States, cities and towns would be used at the local level.  The world already knows where and who we are.  This is just wasteful needless spending.

5)      Rolls back efforts to make college affordable: Is college affordable now?  Is college a good value today with leftist professors indoctrinating students into a Socialist model?  No!  This is another scare tactic by Hirono and her Socialist Democrat criminals.  You’ve got Occupy Wall Street (OWS) people running around with worthless degrees in such fields as Cyberfeminism” and “Taking Marx Seriously: Should Marx Be Given Another Chance?”.  These are real courses being offered in Universities that Hirono wants you to pay for through government grants.  What marketing skills do courses like this offer the soon to be 26 year old about to enter the workforce?  Ryan’s plan does not eliminate grant programs; it just streamlines it towards courses with job marketable skills.  Isn’t that a better use of taxpayer money?  Let the student pay for these whacky courses through other means other than government taxpayer grants.

6)      Slashes education programs for Hawaii’s students:  This is also another lie and scare tactic that Hirono should be ashamed of.  Currently the Department of Education (DoE) is spending more money, but getting poorer results.  Hirono would rather continue the time honored practice of throwing taxpayer monies at a failing system and hoping someday it will get better.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  The Federal taxpayer monies spent on education should be a block grant to let the States run their education programs that work for the people of their state.  Hirono would continue with a central planned system that puts conditions on the states like “No Child Left Behind”, a noble plan that never worked.  Hirono would better represent the educational needs of Hawai’i’s students by working to get the largest block grant for her district.  But that means work.

7)      Cuts nearly 4.1 million jobs nationwide through 2014: This is Liberal fantasy!  This is the Socialist Model that states only the government can create jobs.  It is not the role of the government to create jobs.  Our Constitution is based on a Free Market Capitalist system, not a Socialist Central Planning model.  The Obama regime has spent billions of taxpayer dollars trying to make that work and it has failed miserably.  The Ryan plan seeks to eliminate unnecessary wasteful government programs.  Currently, the rate of government spending is unsustainable and dangerous.  It is pure fantasy to believe spending can continue at its current rate.  I believe the Ryan budget doesn’t cut enough!  I also believe Economic Policy Institute is nothing more than a mouth-piece for the Congressional Progressive Caucus to spread economic half-truths and outright misinformation.  The Economic Policy Institute makes claims, but fails to back it up with any supporting data.  Under Obama’s NO PLAN, but continuing run-away spending will eventually hurt everyone; seniors, children, poor, middle class and the rich.  Again, another Social scare tactic by Hirono.

8)      Gives millionaires and billionaires $265,000 each in addition to the $129,000 they would receive from the Bush tax cuts:  Hirono is a student of Keynesian economics and wealth redistribution.  Classic Socialism and Class Warfare! The belief that if you take money from one group of people and give it to another group.  That does not create jobs.  It does not create economic opportunity.  Hirono wants to expand government by using tax payer money to waste on government programs.  That’s unsustainable!  The Bush tax cuts gave everyone a tax cut.  Obama and Hirono wants to punish people that are wealthy and successful.  Hirono wants to tax the job creators.  Hirono wants to slow down the economy by killing small business with unnecessary taxes.  This country has the highest corporate tax rate in the world.  Hawai’i has some of the highest taxes in the nation.  Hawai’i currently tacked on a half percent to the General Excise Tax (GET) to build a train to nowhere.  How long before Honolulu’s mistake starts to affect the neighbor islands?  This nonsense of taxing and spending our way into prosperity is complete idiocy and irresponsible.

9)      Cuts transportation investments in roads, bridges, rail lines, buses, and airports: Again, spending cuts need to be done because we don’t have the money.  Obama has drained the Treasury.  We as a country are broke.  To continue to deny that is like not paying your mortgage.  Eventually you will lose your house.  It’s like not paying your credit cards, eventually the bank will come for you.  It’s like not paying off your car; eventually the repo man will repossess your car.  States should be responsible for their transportation priorities.  Instead, States with Democrat leadership have wasted transportation projects on other general fund projects.  Neil “Crusty the Clown” Abercrombie took money from the Hurricane fund for other projects.  This is the same thing that Hirono wants to do.  Barney Frank, the Congressman crook that once claimed the Housing Market was solvent and not in trouble of collapsing, did a fund raiser for Hirono.  You see, these are the people that caused the economic collapse.  It wasn’t the Bush tax cuts.  It wasn’t the eight years of the Bush presidency.  It started in 2006 when the House of Representatives was dominated by Socialist Democrats.  That’s when out of control spending started.  That’s when the housing market started to implode.  In 2008 when Obama Regime increased spending with Cash For Clunkers, the GM Bailout, the Stimulus plan and the Quantitative Easing of the economy.  All failed economic policies supported and voted for by Hirono.

10)   Protects tax breaks and boosts incentives for corporations shipping American jobs overseas:  I don’t know what incentives companies to move overseas, except for high taxes and over regulation.  Hirono and her gang of Socialist Democrats have choked businesses with high taxes and over-regulations.  Their failed economic policies to pick winners and losers have resulted in millions of job losses.  Conveniently, Hirono blames the Republicans for the Democrats failed policies.  The Democrats owned the House of Representatives for 4 years until 2010 when the Tea Party and Conservatives swept the house with Fiscal Conservatives.  There hasn’t been a budget passed since Obama came into power.  Even the Senate rejected Obama’s budget.  So for Hirono to gleefully cast her vote against fiscal sanity just shows the lack of intelligence she has understanding how the economy works.

Hirono offers no budget solution herself.  Typical Marxist Democrats that are good at making speeches but little on substance and follow through.  At least Ryan has a budget with substantial fiscal sanity.  Sooner or later, this nation needs to come to grips with our fiscal house.  If not, we will surely end in worse condition.  Hirono can hide her head in the sand all she wants, but standing on the sidelines and making unhelpful comments doesn’t demonstrate good government.  It does show a small petty woman with an ego of empty vanity.

 

 

House Budget Commitee Chairman Paul Ryan corrected Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s incorrect speech on Medicare during House Floor debate of the Path to Prosperity Budget.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: As a member of Congress representing a large number seniors in south Florida, I can tell you that the House Republican Budget would be devastating for seniors and older Americans. This Republican path to poverty would pass like a tornado through America’s nursing homes, where millions of Americans seniors receive long-term and end-of-life care.

HBC Chairman Paul Ryan: The growth rate of Medicare under this budget is the same one the President proposes in his budget. Here’s the difference: President Obama in his law — the one being debated over in the Supreme Court — says 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats will be in charge of putting price controls and cuts to Medicare to accommodate that growth rate. Our plan puts 50 million seniors in charge of choosing what health care plan is best for them — more for the poor, more for the sick, less for the wealthy, and it makes Medicare solvent. 

And here’s the catch: we don’t change the benefit for current seniors. This just applies to younger people – unlike the current law that the President passed — that my friend voted for – 15 bureaucrats are in charge of putting price controls on current seniors’ medical care which leads to denied care for them. So if we’re talking about who’s “saving and strengthening Medicare” it is this budget as opposed to the status quo, which raids it, rations it and still allows the program to go bankrupt.

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,”

Presumption is a scary thing.  Does Obama know something we don’t?

The Ryan Republican Budget did pass in the House today.  The Senate is scheduled to review the budget, but the Socialist Democrats that holds the majority rule under Harry Reid will most likely put the budget on hold.  This means the current rate of mismanaged spending will continue until after the election.  If Obama gets reelected, the America as we have known it will cease to exist.  Our economic future will look like Europe, in particular Greece.  That is a future which will end the republic and the beginning of a socialist model much like Russia.  If Obama is reelected, the Second Amendment will end and Obama will disarm the populace.  If Obama is reelected, free speech will be a thing of the past; any dissenting opinion will be not be tolerated.  If Obama is reelected healthcare will be rationed, jobs will be scarce, housing will be government owned and the disintegration of individual freedoms and liberties will be forever lost.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Fraud

.

Not since the days of Franklin Roosevelt has so much fallen on the shoulders of one president, and when he faced his country, who looked at him for answers, he would not dwell in blame or idealism

REALLY!?!?!

Hollywood has produced some marvelous works of fiction before and these 16 minutes and 57 seconds of propaganda are not only laughable, but outright lunacy.  Tom Hanks who narrates this piece of political rubbish reprised his role as Forest Gump, only this time, he thinks you, the American people, are stupid.

Since the day Obama was emaculated into the office of the President of the United States, he’s been blaming George Bush, Fat Cat corporations and Republicans for everything from the economy, the BP Gulf oil spill, Global Warming and anything else Obama’s failed socialist policies have brought.  Now, in an effort to hide his gross incompetency’s, he’s teamed up with well to do 1%’ers in Hollywood to create a work of remarkably obtuse propaganda that even Joseph Goebbels would be proud of.

Obama’s whining and lies are well documented here’s a sample:  Quotes Sourced Here:

Obama Blames Bush and Congress for Deficits, February 1st, 2010, in remarks delivered on the budget.

Obama Blames Bush for Regulatory Policies, January 17th, 2010, remarks by the president at an event with Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley.

Obama Blames Wall Street Fat Cats for Economic Disaster, December 13th, 2009, CBS News’ 60 Minutes.

Obama Blames Bush for Overall Economy, September 27th, 2009, remarks by the president at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual dinner.

And my personal favorite: Obama Blames Arab Spring and Japan’s Earthquake on Struggling Economy and Job Situation, August 5th, 2011.

What’s even more mysterious are the throngs of mindless Obama-drones that nod their heads like bobble-head puppets in agreement when he’s giving another campaign speech.  Campaign speeches that Obama’s been giving ever since he was elected under fraudulent circumstances.  Let’s face it folks, Hope and Change was a lie.

For the first two years that Obama was in office, his only legislative accomplishment was the disastrous Affordable Health Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare).  The bill that had to be passed so we could find out what was in the bill.  At that time, Congress was dominated by Socialist Democrats.  Obama could have done a lot of things, but his only accomplishment was a takeover of the Health Care Industry, the Automobile Industry, the Banking Industry and the Insurance Industry.  Remember when Obama said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?  If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance.  Watch to this exchange on that very question:

My doctor has told me that they will not be able to stay in a private practice.  I have heard other doctors saying they will be leaving the industry and that if you do need care, you will have to go to an emergency room.  This is why it is so important that Obamacare be repealed.  This is why Obama must be removed from the Office of the Presidency before he can do more damage to our economy, our country and our freedoms.

And he says we can't drive: Click To Watch!

Since the stunning election turnover in Congress in 2010, Obama has been misusing his authority by issuing Executive Orders to further push his socialist agenda of a Chinese style centralized government.  This country has been bleeding jobs to other countries.  This country has been spending beyond its means.  This country entitlement’s has been increasing.  These have been Obama’s policies.  He campaigned on making it more expensive to afford electricity, medical care and home ownership.  Obama wants you to drive a $40,000 dollar Chevy Volt.  Only the very rich can afford a Volt, and the reliability of the Chevy Volt is dubious at best.  From catching on fire and running out of power between charges, the Chevy Volt doesn’t seem to be a bargain at any price.

But this is just another in a string of “distractions” that Obama has been using to play the American people as fools.  Hollywood steps in to add more distractions, to create a fantasy of a leader with a huge weight upon his shoulders.  A distraction away from a failing economy, from government takeovers, from unobtainable home ownership and disappearing jobs.  Obama fabricated a nonexistent war on women which his socialist democrat minions tried to pin on Republicans.  And you never hear any complaint about either Bill Maher or David Letterman’s vulgar attacks against conservative women.  Even Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol was a victim of vicious attacks by liberal pretend to be comedians, yet Obama can call up and comfort liberal abortion activist Sandra Fluke when Rush Limbaugh rightly calls her a slut, but Obama chooses to ignore the conservative victim.  Double standards, dividing America and being the hypocritical leader of Hope and Change.  Maybe this is Obama’s Cee Lo Green to America. F”YOU!

Obama thinks you’re stupid.  Hollywood looks down on you.  Socialist Democrats thumb their noses at you.  They think you are forgetful.  They think you are stupid.  Next, they’ll blame you for their failures!

I Was Inspired

 

 

I am inspired!  Last night, I had an encounter with great wisdom.  I had recently written an opinion article for my local newspaper regarding the Rush Limbaugh faux pas.  In it I explained that this wasn’t about what Limbaugh said, but about the moral decline being promoted by the Socialist Democrats.

Last night I received a phone call from an 85 year old elderly Japanese woman, she wanted to complement me on my opinion editorial.  Her name was Arlene, and she wanted to tell me how much she enjoyed reading my article that I wrote to the Hilo Tribune-Herald.  I’ve written opinion articles to the Hilo newspaper many times before, and on occasion people have complemented me on my ramblings.  However, this was the first time I had an hour plus long conversation with someone so passionate about losing a voice on the airwaves.

Arlene was disappointed by the decision by our local radio station KPUA to pull the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule.  Having the dubious recognition of being the only radio station in the nation to do so, KPUA’s President Chris Leonard was obviously pleased with himself.  By punishing the listeners of his radio station, he must have felt he was making a bold statement for righteousness, or something.

Chris Leonard: Click on the pic to read the full story

“Apparently, we were the first in the country to cancel and it has generated a fair amount of national attention, which was certainly not our intent, and we have received a ton of feedback on both sides of the issue over the past several hours,” he noted. “We’ve heard a lot from Rush listeners who are disappointed in our decision and we’ve also heard from a lot of people who are very happy about the decision.”

 

Arlene was angry that KPUA canceled the Rush Limbaugh show, and she told me that she called the station to express her anger.  She told me she did not know what she was going to do without her daily listening of “Excellence In Broadcasting!”  She went on to explain that she agreed with Rush; that Sandra Fluke is a “slut”!  Anyone that would publicly shame themselves before “Pelosi’s Gang” is deserving of such rebuke.  I agreed that the larger point was not lost in the fluff of leftist manufactured outrage.

 

When Conservative women are disparaged by the left, not a word is heard by the elitist media.  Why does the media turn a blind eye at the conduct by so called late night comedians, leftist cable news anchors and leftist radio talk show morons that regularly disparage women?  In particular conservative women?

Media Mashup

Letterman’s top ten countdown – number 2, he makes a remark about Sarah Palin.

 

This is, apparently, acceptable behavior to the National Organization of Women (NOW).  Notice that they didn’t say a word about any vulgar remarks about conservative women.  That’s because in their feeble little hateful minds, this is acceptable in today’s society.  Allow some women to be discriminated against and then only defend those that fit their political views.  This is also because the National Organization of Women is at war with itself.  How else can you explain the content of their website.  They are promoting an appearance that women are all discriminated against.  This is patently not true!  Discrimination is not the exclusive domain of women.  People like me were not raised that way.  People like Arlene are not like that either.

Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and others have expressed outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s comments and demand the FCC ban the show.  Considering the brain trust of these two, I would have thought their greatest collective concern would be either spit or swallow.  The moral outrage over a talk show host is lost in hypocritical hyperbole of “do as I say, and not as I do”!  Arlene and I spoke of this double standard and how it has poisoned the discourse in today’s society.  After all, it was Gloria Steinem that once said about housewives:

“[Housewives] are dependent creatures who are still children…parasites.” ~ Gloria Steinem, “What It Would Be Like If Women Win,” Time, August 31, 1970.

I was having an enjoyable conservation over the phone with a wonderful grandmother, a widower and a very intelligent woman.  A bold and passionate woman that was not afraid to speak her mind.  A woman with a voice, and not afraid to use it either!  A woman with health problems, for her age, but she was not afraid to pick up the phone and call me; to thank me for my opinion.  I was inspired and humbled!

How could anyone not want to hear a complement?  This was different.  She was praising a man she admired.  She was angry that a source of information was gone.  She was hurt by losing a friend on the radio for three hours a day.  She was emotionally distraught over a person that when they spoke, made her think, was now off the airwaves!  Much like the passing of Andrew Breitbart, I felt the same way.  She was grateful to know there were others like me out there.  Who appreciated free-thought and lived by conservative values.  I was inspired!

Arlene told me about her upbringing.  Growing up in the plantations north of Hilo town in Pēpē’ekeo.  How back in that time people didn’t conduct themselves like Sandra Fluke, out of fear of shaming their family and shaming themselves.  People had more pride in keeping with the morals they were taught.  Indeed, 85 years ago means she was born in 1927, and she lived through World War II, the Japanese interment and she has seen the changes in the world with a lifetime of experience.  Growing up on the slopes of Mauna Kea during the plantation days must have been an experience.  Back then, Hilo was just a small town and Pēpē’ekeo was just a small sugar plantation.  Arlene told me how she was raised with family values which she passed onto her children and grandchildren.  I was inspired!

Values that included pride and respect!  Values that included independence and interdependence.  Values that shared love and family.  Values that had mutual partisanship and commanding directness.  Values of respecting ones person, a temple, if I could use that phrase.  Something that seems in great deficit in today’s society.  The rational that contraception is cheaper than the full birth of a new life brought into the world is somehow a better trade off, is just frightening.  That was partially the subject of my article, but she saw it from a higher elevation and seen the larger picture.  She called me at home to tell me that.  I was inspired!

Bart Simpson explains Sandra Fluke

We agreed that if there was a War on Women; that I would surrender.  I said “willingly”.  All joking aside, my conversation with her was thrilling!  She went on to explain how she called the radio station’s phone number (KPUA), and voiced her displeasure with the stations decision to cancel the Rush Limbaugh Show!  She also told me she apologized to the station operator for her choice in language.  She did not elaborate on what she said explicitly, and neither did I inquire, but I can only imagine!

I could not imagine we are the only two people on the Big Island of Hawai’i with the same values.  I know we are not alone.  She told me because of her age and frail condition, she is no longer able to either drive, or get around without some assistance.  We talked about conservative groups here on the Big Island; The Conservative Forum and the Hilo Tea Party.  Both are a rich diverse group of people of both men and women that are like minded.  She was surprise and happy to hear that there were others out there.  Free-thinkers that often get together to discuss issues that affect our lives.

We talked about the entitlement mentality, the desire by people to depend on handouts from the government.  They call those handouts, free!  A right!    We talked about a variety of topics from family to politics.  We talked about how we make decisions and what guides our decision processes.  We talked about the Hawai’i caucus taking place today.  We talked about our candidates of choice.  We talked about the current administration, and local politics.  I was impressed by Arlene’s knowledge of current events.  If I didn’t know better, I’d say she was getting her news feeds via twitter or facebook.  I was inspired!

USA Now A Racial Slur

National Pride and sportsmanship has reached a new low!  Chanting USA! USA! USA!  Now considered racist.

Apologizing for chanting USA!  Are people that sensitive to national pride that they have to equate it to racism?

This has got to be the largest load of Bull Hockey I’ve ever heard of.  We don’t teach civics in school any more.  We don’t teach American History anymore.  We don’t teach trade skills anymore.  We’re too worried about offending everyone, but ourselves.  We are becoming a nation of wussies!  Political correctness run amuck!

But we are racially sensitive to others that don’t consider themselves American.

As an immigrant to this great country, I am ashamed!

There is no where else in this world to go.  To live free.  To have opportunities.  All to see it go to waste because some moron was offended by chanting USA.  You are destroying this country from within!

Free Speech Under Attack

Kū'ē i kō ha'i mana'o

KPUA, the local AM radio station in Hilo Hawai’i has pulled the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule.  In an act of intolerance and a attack on Free Speech. 

Posted: Monday, March 5th, 2012 10:22 AM HST

KPUA cancels Rush Limbaugh radio show in Hilo

By 67AM KPUA News
Hilo, Hawaii March 5, 2012: New West Broadcasting announced today that it is discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA AM 670 in Hilo, Hawaii effective immediately.Chris Leonard, President and General Manager of New West released the following statement this morning:“We have always encouraged spirited discussion about national and local issues on KPUA and from time to time those discussions may be deemed by some to be objectionable. We are strong believers in the first amendment and have recognized Mr. Limbaugh’s right to express opinions that often times differ from our own, but
it has never been our goal to allow our station to be used for personal attacks and intolerance. The most recent incident has crossed a line of decency and a standard that we expect of programming on KPUA whether it is locally produced or a syndicated program like the Rush Limbaugh show.

While much of the national debate regarding this issue is now being framed in political terms, the decision for us is one of decency and responsibility. Regardless of one’s political views on the issue being discussed, we feel the delivery was degrading and the continued comments over several days to be egregious. As a result, we are discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA effective immediately.”

For questions or comments, email us at news@kpua.net

KPUA is a CBS affiliate, so it is apart of the network of intolerant leftest news stations.  This knee jerk reaction to pull the Rush Limbaugh is an attack on Free Speech.  Even in the statement on KPUA’s website does not justify “spirited discussion”, it does show intolerance to free speech.

Why has KPUA chosen to punish their listeners by pulling the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule?  Because Rush commented on a political activist that is apart of the Culture of Death.  Rush commented on the testimony of Sandra Fluke that was staged as a phony demonstration conducted by the Socialist Democrats and Nancy Pelosi (a.k.a. Nazi Piglosi).  In an effort to change the attacks on Religious Consciences and the First Amendment by Obama and his Marxist Regime, the Democrats have tried to make contraception out to be a woman’s health issue.  The two are not related in any sense.  That’s the crime that Rush and his listeners are being punished for.

Rush asked a question about Sandra Fluke’s testimony about women not having access to contraception.  He asked what does that make her?  A Slut!  Sandra Fluke went on to claim using examples of women she claims to know, having sex, and having medical issues because of the lack of contraception availability.  This testimony was given in full public disclosure to a panel of Socialist Democrats that supports a culture of immorality and death.  Sandra Fluke was advancing Obama’s policy to use contraception as a whole new entitlement program.

When in reality, the Socialist Democrats were attempting to change the subject on Obama’s attacks on religion and the First Amendment.  Rush did apologized over the weekend.  Here is what Rush said:

A Statement from Rush

March 03, 2012

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

As a result, KPUA decided to punish its listeners and pull the Rush Limbaugh show.  But what Rush said wasn’t anything Rush hasn’t said before.  Other radio talk show hosts have said far worse things.  Leftist talk show hosts like Ed Schultz, Bill Press and Mike Malloy have said far worse things.  But this all a distraction away from the larger issue.

What the larger issue is about is the government forcing religious institutions to go against their conscience.  What this is about is the government forcing religious institutions to supply contraception to their employees.  It is about the government forcing you to purchase a product which is against your religious beliefs.  This is NOT about Sandra Fluke.  This not about Rush Limbaugh either.  This is about free speech.  This is about freedom of choice.  This about religious freedoms.  This about the Obama Regime attacking the United States Constitution.

As a result, I have decided not to listen to KPUA or support their advertisers until KPUA returns Rush Limbaugh to their programming schedule.  We don’t have a lot of radio stations here in Hilo.  We don’t have any talk radio stations at all, except for KPUA’s sports talk shows.  For KPUA’s management to cancel the Rush Limbaugh show over his comments is just another attack on free speech.  It is wrong!  I have sent KPUA an email expressing my disappointment with their decision and I hope they change their misguided decision.

Not Having Babies Upholds Religious Liberties

Prostitute

“So you are saying, by not having babies born, we are going to save money on health care?”

The testimony of a Georgetown College Co-ed, Sandra Fluke, regarding contraception has brought a new level of disingenuousness by the Socialist Democrats.  After listening to her testimony, I can only come to the conclusion that she was a deliberate plant to further inject birth control into the political discourse.  It was Obama that declared that birth control would be provided “free-of-charge” by employers and insurance companies.  It was against the religious beliefs of many people, so Obama said, OK, then only insurers have to provide contraception.  Who pays for the insurance?  It’s the same thing.

Sandra Fluke’s testimony had some really outrageous claims.  Going broke paying for contraception; women getting raped and believing they had no recourse; getting cancerous tumors because of no contraception; basically a laundry list of sob stories and why religious institutions must pay for her contraception.

Sandra Fluke is a student at Georgetown Law. She’s also a “reproductive rights activist” who agrees wholeheartedly with the Obama administration’s controversial contraceptive mandate. Her reasoning, though, is likely to enrage some critics.

During a testimony in front of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on Monday (a meeting that was held by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi), Fluke — who was coincidentally the only witness heard — described the financial constraints that purchasing birth control puts on her peers.

“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy,” Fluke said, referring to the fact that the university doesn’t pay for contraception. “Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school.”

She detailed, among other stories, how one woman felt “embarrassed” and “powerless” at the pharmacy counter when she “learned for the first time” that contraceptives weren’t covered by the university’s health care plan.

CNS News’ Craig Bannister, though, challenged Fluke’s $3,000 figure and came up with some pretty interesting numbers: $3,000 for birth control in three years? That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex — and, she wants us to pay for it. [...] At a dollar a condom if she shops at CVS pharmacy’s website, that $3,000 would buy her 3,000 condoms — or, 1,000 a year… Assuming it’s not a leap year, that’s 1,000 divided by 365 — or having sex 2.74 times a day, every day, for three straight years. And, I thought Georgetown was a Catholic university where women might be prone to shun casual, unmarried sex. At least its health insurance doesn’t cover contraception (that which you subsidize, you get more of, you know).

This isn’t the first time Fluke has made her voice heard in the halls of Congress. Earlier this month, it was reported that Democrat Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Eleanor Norton (D-DC) and their anger over the lack of female witnesses present at a previous contraceptive hearing.

The congresswomen wanted Fluke to be permitted to speak at the event, but Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) declined to allow it, stating that Fluke was not an expert in religious freedom, which was the issue being investigated.

Fluke, though, responded by claiming that women should be included in the discussion. She also alleged that a friend of hers died because of a lack of access to contraception and accused Issa of silencing the people who have the most authority to speak on the subject.

Contraception is easily available through many sources.  Planned Parenthood is one source that will supply contraception.  The example she used in her testimony is absolutely either false or just the worse case of personal responsibility.  However, I think there is something else that no one is considering.  It’s to distract from Obama’s abysmal record.

Obamacare is unconstitutional.  The Socialist Democrats know that.  Nazi Piglosi knows that.  That’s why the Socialist Democrats want more power over you.  They know that Obama cannot get reelected on his record, so they are creating a non-issue to deflect from Obama’s abysmal record of policy failures.  By non-issue I mean it is not a national issue that deserves to be apart of the dialog for either the Presidential or State elections.  It is an important issue for people of faith because it violates their consciences, and it’s not just Catholics, it’s all religions that find contraception objectionable.  I find it objectionable for the same reasons, including the First Amendment establishment clause.  It is simply unconstitutional.

No one is denying contraception to either women or men.  What Obama is saying is that it has to be made free-of-charge.  Other than the air we breathe, nothing is for free.  This is disguised as social justice.  They are saying that I must pay for free contraception.  However, contraception is available everywhere, and in some places it is free.  The government practically gives it away.  So why is this becoming an issue?  It’s a deflection away from Obama’s and the Socialist Democrats failed policies.  While everyone is distracted with this non-issue, our soldiers are getting killed because of Obama apology to the Afghans who desecrating their own book.  This regime is spending trillions of tax dollars on failed green energy projects.  This regime is destroying American jobs, and we are fixated on contraception?

Of course, anyone who heard former Presidential candidate Obama utter his “that’s above my pay grade” answer to Reverend Rick Warren’s question as to “when a baby gets human rights” – either had their head in the sand – or was no friend of children in the womb themselves. 

President Obama has selected Catholics to serve in his administration who openly defy their own Church. Now, as if that wasn’t bad enough, all of the subterfuge and sophistry which has surrounded his promise to honor religious liberty and respect freedom of conscience in the implementation of his “Affordable care Act” has been unmasked.

“The Obama administration has drawn an unprecedented line in the sand. In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences.To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is literally unconscionable.In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences.To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is literally unconscionable.” (Cardinal Designate Dolan, Abp of New York, President, USCCB)

Rush Limbaugh gets demonized for speaking the truth about this slut that parades herself in front of the public and smugly makes unsubstantiated claims about contraception and women’s health.  If Limbaugh’s sponsors think by pulling their ads from his show is going to make me run out and get a sleep comfort mattress, they are fooling themselves.  Perhaps they can give a mattress to Sandra Fluke since she probably has worn out her bed from all the sex she having.   Are the parents of this slut proud of her?  Maybe they are, I don’t know.  Seriously, what did she think was going to happen?  Did she think no one would question her testimony?  Did she think throngs of women would come to her defense?

I know there are going to be people, women in particular, that will defend Sandra Fluke.  They will chastise anyone and claim you are being misogynistic towards women.  They will claim that a woman has a economic disadvantage.  They will claim that this is all about woman’s health concerns.  Affordable access to healthcare. Really?  Under Obamacare, you won’t have any choice, you won’t have any healthcare freedoms. Under Obamacare’s death panels, that cystic on your ovaries might not be covered.  If the panel of government healthcare overseers determines that you, the woman, are no longer of any revenue value (taxable capability), you’ll be denied the operation you need to survive.  Obamacare might either give you a pill, or the option to end your life.  That is the reality of Obamacare.  So this whole argument of women’s reproductive rights is a farce.  Obamacare might provide you with the morning after pill, but if they determine the cost of your health is not worthy of the money spent, you will be given another alternative.  One that probably will not be to your benefit.

It doesn’t matter if her testimony was either about herself or others, what matters is her insistence that a religious college pay for contraceptive services.  What matters is Obama has said contraception must be supplied free-of-charge.  What matters is that no one is talking about the sex partner, why isn’t the sex partner helping to pay for their own contraception?  What matters is Obamacare will force you to either purchase a product or the government will penalize you.  It has nothing to do with economics, it has everything to do with religious freedom.  It has nothing to do with women’s health, it has everything to do with promiscuity.

The Blog College Conservative has weighed in with an appropriate rebuttal to Sandra, “the spokeswoman for all of Georgetown”, Fluke.  It is well worth the read!

Sandra Fluke doesn’t speak for me. Or for Georgetown.

She doesn’t speak for those of us who worked hard to be able to choose to come to a great institution with a great tradition of faith and scholarship. She certainly can’t speak for the Jesuits who dedicated their lives to God and Education with a long established set of rules. There are only ten of them, and Ms. Fluke would do well to give them a quick read.

Funny how the same side that cries “Get your rosaries off my ovaries” is the same side saying, “on second thought…please pay for me to have all the sex I want!” The people who espouse “pro-choice” “values” are the same people who say religious institutions have no right to choose.

They are struggling financially, Sandra Fluke says to pay for their contraception.  Well then, charge for the sex you are having.  That’s your solution Sandra Fluke.  Become a working girl and charge people for all the sex you are having with them.  Then you can pay for your contraception yourself.  You might even have enough money left over to pay your way through college.  Maybe even buy some new clothes and shoes.  Be an entrepreneur, a business person and provide for yourself.  It is insulting to me that this whore will tell me that I have to pay for her contraception.  So she can spread her legs to every Tom, Dick and Harry that comes along.  No one is denying her right to prostitute herself.  Just be aware it might be against the law.

My parents chose life over selfishness, and therefore….I have a say!!!

The song at the end is Matt Maher’s “Isaiah 61″

But the absurdities’ don’t end here.  Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services and brain fart, tried to make the claim that a decrease in human beings will cover the cost of contraception.  WHAT???  During a House hearing Sebelius insisted that the mandate “upholds religious liberty”.  So by forcing people to pay for a product they don’t want and find morally objectionable, that’s liberty?

You have to wonder if Sebelius is either on drugs, or she thinks that you are that stupid to believe the garbage spewing out of her pie-hole.  Here’s a portion of the exchange:

During the subcommittee hearing, Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) said that contraception provided by insurance companies to people employed by religious organizations under the future form of the rule Sebelius described would not be was not free.

“Who pays for it? There’s no such thing as a free service,” Murphy asked.

Sebelius responded that that is not the case with insurance.

“The reduction in the number of pregnancies compensates for cost of contraception,” Sebelius answered.

Murphy expressed surprise by the answer.

“So you are saying, by not having babies born, we are going to save money on health care?” Murphy asked.

Sebelius replied, “Providing contraception is a critical preventive health benefit for women and for their children.”

Murphy again sought clarification.

“Not having babies born is a critical benefit. This is absolutely amazing to me. I yield back,” he said.

Equally as disappointing are the political candidates climbing aboard the SS Condom and wag their finger of shame at Rush Limbaugh.  The ship of fools is eager to get off topic and get suckered into an issue that has no national bearing.  Speaker John “crybaby bonehead” Boehner condemns Rush Limbaugh as does Rick Santorum who called Limbaugh absurd.  IDIOTS!!  Instead of talking about Obama’s failed policies, the bad economy, the high unemployment and high gas prices, they’d rather sail off into the sea of irrelevancy.  Good luck defeating Obama in November.

It is so disappointing to see our side getting in the mud with the “democRats”.  The “democRats” have successfully placed a ring in the noses of the GOP and are leading them around like donkeys.  The democrats have kept the candidates off message by creating a false issue that takes away from other priorities.  The GOP is campaigning for Obama’s reelection.  Even Mitt Romney agrees with the individual mandate (if you thought Romney was going to repeal Obamacare, you are wrong), he even wrote a oped in USA today explaining how his version of Romneycare will work for Obamacare.  You can read it here!
