Castro’s got a fee-vah and the only prescription is more ObamaCare

posted at 6:47 pm on March 25, 2010 by Allahpundit

Makes sense. Fidel’s always been an advocate for “common sense,” “middle of the road” health care. Which, per today’s rally in Iowa, is just what we’re getting:

And it’s absolutely true — it’s absolutely true this is a middle-of-the-road bill. This isn’t single-payer, which some people wanted. It’s also not what the Republicans were looking for, which was basically to deregulate the insurance industry, arguing that somehow this would cut down costs — something that defies the experience of everybody who’s dealt with an insurance company out there. (Laughter.)

So, yes, this is a common-sense bill. It doesn’t do everything that everybody wants, but it moves us in the direction of universal health care coverage in this country and that’s why everybody here fought so hard for it. (Applause.)

That was his reply to someone in the audience whining about the lack of a public option. Patience, young nutoot — we are indeed moving in that direction. Obama and Pelosi promised, didn’t they?

Say, I wonder if that’s why Castro’s happy — because he knows where “common sense, middle of the road” reform in this case is likely to lead. That would certainly help explain the excitement in certain quarters of American communist media.

If they’re going to play guilt-by-association with tea partiers, it’s only right that we repay the kindness.

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform “a miracle” and a major victory for Obama’s presidency, but couldn’t help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president’s hand against lobbyists and “mercenaries.”…

Cuba provides free health care and education to all its citizens, and heavily subsidizes food, housing, utilities and transportation, policies that have earned it global praise. The government has warned that some of those benefits are no longer sustainable given Cuba’s ever-struggling economy, though it has so far not made major changes.

This whitewash has been brought to you by the AP, which thoughtfully notes that amnesty and climate-change legislation are next up on Fidel’s wishlist for the U.S. Exit question: On a scale of one to 10, how excited is the White House message team to have this endorsement with a repeal campaign already brewing inside the GOP? Now all we need is a thumbs-up from Hugo Chavez and the fall ad slate will be set.

Cicero43 on March 25, 2010 at 6:56 PM

I meant to quote this.

For a head of state to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of.
Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip seen in Jerusalem tonight as a disastrous humiliation.
After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on Jewish settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisors and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman who spoke to the Prime Minister said today.

Yes, because that “free” health care takes place in top-notch facilities, doesn’t it?

And who among us doesn’t want the government limiting our food intake because it’s “free.” I mean, check out this awesome list of supplies you get, courtesy the benevolent government (per person, per month):

Rice 6 pounds
Beans 20 ounces
White (refined) sugar
Dark (unrefined) sugar
Milk (only children under 7 years) 1 lt / day

Potatoes/bananas 15 pounds (6.8 kg)

*Only September-December

People in Puerto Rico that support statehood (like I do) get a heart attack from reading that. I mean c’mon, Americans by birth, they are involved in US Democrat primaries (NOT FOR THE GOP!!!!!!) for POTUS, but in PR they cannot vote for POTUS.

So the PR troops are shoulder to shoulder in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korean War, whatnot and then diss the island like that? Imagine not voting for a POTUS and then you have to deploy. I am fully aware of the voluntarism and courageous act of enlisting, but they do because they love the USA as much as PR.

Of course that cannot be possible due to finances here and there, but Cuba needs s e r i o u s rebuilding. There’s also the issue that PR has 4M ppl in an island 100X35 miles and that would be about 6 extra seats in House and Senate.

I’m trying to get with others of us, we Cons/Patriots, that we as a team stop indulging the libs. Not a site ‘rule’ or anything like that, but rather a common ground.

We, as a team and a group, don’t respond to the liberals/trolls who post here. They can speak all they want, of course, but we ignore them.

Can you and me maybe get with all our other friends to go along with this? We need our peace, our place. Libs posting here only disrupt that. I believe we here need to make that stop at long last.

A regular Marxist “revolutionary” lovefest.

Speaking of smear jobs directed at the Tea Party movement, when is AP going to repost Breitbart’s latest challenge to the State Run Media and the Democratic race card industry?

For that matter, when is AP going to acknowledge that there was no racist taunting committed by the Tea Party protesters last Saturday in D.C.? Is AP still waiting for the non-existent video to materialize so he can draw a conclusion? Or is his jury still out? Not an idle question, Breitbart has put $10,000 of his own money on the betting line that no such video exist, because the smear de jour is just another liberal lie.

Castro also had Ernesto Gueverra.

Tens of thousands of Cuban youths learned that Che Guevara’s admonitions were more than idle bombast. In Guevara, the hundreds of Soviet KGB and East German STASI “consultants” who flooded Cuba in the early 1960s found an extremely eager acolyte. By the mid ’60s, the crime of a “rocker” lifestyle (blue jeans, long hair, fondness for the Beatles and Stones) or effeminate behavior got thousands of youths yanked out of Cuba’s streets and parks by secret police and dumped in prison camps with “Work Will Make Men Out of You” emblazoned in bold letters above the gate and with machine gunners posted on the watchtowers. The initials for these camps were UMAP, not GULAG, but the conditions were quite similar.

Today, the world’s largest image of the man that so many hipsters sport on their shirts adorns Cuba’s headquarters and torture chambers for its KGB-trained secret police. Nothing could be more fitting. Source

All I’m suggesting is that, at long last, we own our site and exchange ideas among ourselves. If we say ‘kill the bill’, a lib will mention the CRusades or something. I say it’s time for that nonsense to end.

I’m tired of seeing my friends caught in combat over the mere mis-spelling of a word. That nonsense needs to end, or so I believe.

This whitewash has been brought to you by the AP, which thoughtfully notes that amnesty and climate-change legislation are next up on Fidel’s wishlist for the U.S.

Question: Now, why would Fidel want amnesty when any Cuban that makes it here gets automatic political amnesty?

Answer: Because he knows that letting all these poor, ignorant Mexicans, Hondurans, Guatamalens and assorted other Central & South Americans will ensure a permanent socialism voting majority for the Marxist thugs that used to be the Democrats.

Hey, Patriot!

I’m trying, with others, for us as a team to ignore posts by trolls, that we can can have a less-combative site. I seek no censorship; liberals can say as they wish. But, can we all here not respond to them at all?

One lib last night said his only reason for coming here was to be annoying. We deserve better than that.

Can we, as a team, talk only among ourselves and unite to not respond to trolls?

I know that’s hard, but this is our site, not theirs. Once it’s sure they have no credence among us, they’ll leave.

Can we do this?

Liam on March 25, 2010 at 7:36 PM

Can you and me, and other cons, make a mutual and free agreement to not talk to the ‘trolls’ who post here?

What I’m asking is that we conservatives of HA, not speak to any trolls who post here. Liam on March 25, 2010 at 7:25 PM

I’m in!

Thanks!

It’s hard ignoring them, but one stated he comes only to muck up the place. We deserve better.

OK–let’s not talk to trolls, okay? Any others with this, let’s work together.

I’ll be happy to do whatever I can. I think I’ll just post something like “A troll has just posted something that is not true. I have taken a pledge not to respond to trolls and will not reply, which does not mean that I agree with the troll. May I respectfully suggest that none of us reply to the troll.” when I see a troll posting.

Other countries that are susceptible to dictators are that way because they’ve experienced constant instability and upheaval.

blatantblue on March 25, 2010 at 7:25 PM

Dear Comrade Blue:

In case it passed your attention, we already have a dictator. Despite the will of the American people, we just watched the government seize yet another sector of private industry. Comrade Obama (long may he reign) now has control over the domestic auto industry, financial services, healthcare, and student loans. How silly we were to value free markets, free will, and market forces.

Put another way you mindless Obama-supporting moron, Castro had instability. The filthy lying dictator in the White House and his party are making it. What the f**k about this situtation can’t you see? That is if you are being honest in your posting which I seriously doubt.
