JAB, who deep fries even the turkey stuffing, writes in on Thanksgiving:
With Organizing for America sending out talking points for how to promote Obamacare at the family Thanksgiving table, I propose a competition:
For every OFA point-spouting tool that actually engages a friend or family member in Obamacare brainwashing, the best slap-down story gets a prize!
Example: If a lazy, unemployed (because she’s lazy and has a degree in women’s studies) 27-year-old pipes up to say how nifty it will be to have free preventative care, somebody should ask if she really wants Grandma to know she’s dumb enough to need the government to send “free” birth-control. Extra points if Grandma has chest-pains or faints!
So how many beheadings do you think you will conduct at the dacha?
Happy Thanksgiving from the Double-wide,
Hope your Thanksgiving was conflict-free. The Czar received your note in plenty of time, but chose to omit publication until after Thanksgiving. He wanted to be as politics free as possible on Thanksgiving.
Of course, Friday Thereafter, the Czar came down with laryngitis and was too grumpy to post anythingheroically, Dr. J. stepped up on his day off to cover. But we are speaking again, and already back to politics. And now to JABs question, which concerns OFAs pledge that we all talk about Obamacare during dinner.
On a personal note, the Czar was pleased how the entire familywho is quite politicalavoided any discussion of how stupid the President is acting. Imagine: we went through an entire day without complaining how screwed up healthcare is, how embarrassing all of this is for the so-called Smartist Presadent ever, and what a total toolbag he is for authorizing OFA to encourage its loser-ass minions to try to pick fights on one of the most sacred holidays ever. What a bucket of warm pus that idea was.
Instead, we put our feet up, welcomed in a very nice gentleman (a roommate of our dear nephew, who had nowhere to go on Thanksgiving, and was most welcome to share), and spent a very relaxing day eating and laughing and doing what Czar families do. You know, as shocking as this must be, but like millions of voting families across America, Obama never came up during conversations.
So suck it, OFA. You should be embarrassed this even made news. Lets face it, the President is sliding down a slimy hill of his own creation, and youre all going with him. Have you accomplished much? For a guy who seems to be eternally compared to how he doesn&3146;t respond from one crisis to another, you ought to be wondering if you really did pick the right guy. All you did was contribute one piece of static that, in ten years, wont even be remembered as trivia.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
