Henry McMaster Organizing Against Health Care

Henry McMaster Organizing Against Health Care
December 23, 2009

Thanks to Lindsey and Jim DeMint’s prodding, SC AG Henry McMaster is organizing several of his colleagues to take on the unhealthy bill on a constitutional basis.

““This morning, I received a letter from South Carolina’s two United States Senators, Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint, asking me, as Attorney General, to investigate the legality of the special funding arrangements negotiated with Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson to secure his vote for the Senate Democrat’s health care reform bill which moved forward toward eventual passage in the Senate by a vote of 60-40.”

Henry is working with Washington State AG Mark McKenna to go after the bill to see if the “deal” sets a new legal precedent. He is also discussing the possibility of AG’s from Texas, Alabama, North Dakota, Colorado, and Michigan to join in some sort of legal action.

UPDATED:  Welcome Home Parker Griffith!
December 22, 2009

UPDATED: Right after Parker Griffith switched parties, according to Race42012, Erick Erickson has called for someone to run against him and defeat him. Would someone please tell The Pink Flamingo what the you know what is going on here? Someone needs to explain the facts of life to idiots like Erickson! If you want to know what is wrong with conservatives, just read this.

“…No less than a few minutes had passed after word got out that Democrat Rep. Parker Griffith would be switching to the GOP before Erick Erickson of RedState.com had called on him to be defeated in a primary. This is quite simply the stupidest reaction anyone could ever have to this news. Griffith represents a district that has been held by the Democrats for 140 years. So rather than embrace the fact that Griffith is more than we should normally hope for in this particular district, Erickson has decided to target him, a move that will easily hand the seat right back to Nancy Pelosi. I can’t stress this enough: this is a district that hasn’t had a GOP representative since 1869! Rather than embrace other Blue Dogs and try to use this moment to drive a permanent wedge in the Democrat caucus, Erick would prefer to widen the wedge in our own party. Democrats like Griffith were once a strong part of the Reagan Coalition, and rather than try to build a similar coalition for the future, the confused Mr. Erickson would rather continue burning the village to the ground….”

ORIGINAL POST: Freshman Alabama Democrat Congressman Parker Griffith is coming home to the GOP today! The residents of the 5th District of Alabama will now have a Republican in office!

091222_griffith_ap_218The man has courage. We can only wonder how badly Nancy Pelosi is going to be treating him. It is a wonder his web site is still up and running.

Lindsey to Investigate Nelson Deal

Lindsey to Investigate Nelson Deal
December 22, 2009

Meet+The+Press+3CzGOQ4Quoxl

In a sign of the pending apocalypse Lindsey was a guest on O’Reilly’s show which was being hosted by Laura Ingraham. They got along quite well.

“…Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said he’s going to request South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster take a closer look at the so-called “cornhusker kickback.” Graham said if McMaster finds the deal is not on the up and up, and he could file a lawsuit on behalf of South Carolina seeking equal rights under the Constitution…”

South Carolina still has a crusading Attorney General (for about a year) who is going to make an excellent governor – Henry McMaster. Evidently he and Lindsey have come up with a way to challenge the Senate unhealthy bill.

“…Blasting Senate Democrats for what he called “backroom deals that amount to bribes,” Graham found much to complain about in their health care bill. He was particularly irked that the senator who provided that final vote to head off a Republican filibuster, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, cut a deal in which the federal government pays his state’s share of the cost for new Medicaid recipients. Graham, a South Carolina Republican, called on state Attorney General Henry McMaster to review the constitutionality of the deal, and a McMaster spokesman said he looks forward to meeting with Graham to discuss it. “There is one state in the union where new enrollees for Medicaid will be signed up and it won’t cost anybody in that state money,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “A lot of people, Republicans and Democrats, are upset by this,” Graham said. “Is it constitutional? I want the attorney general of South Carolina to look at this.”…”

How Bad Is It or What’s the Use?
December 21, 2009

“’The Class Act’ that allows long term health care insurance to be subsidized by the government and offered by the government is a Ponzi scheme in the first order that Madoff would have been proud of. It’s still in the bill. Any democratic senator that votes for the bill is a coconspirator to one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in Washington.” Lindsey Graham

In 2006 the far extreme right welcomed the advent of the “blue dogs” as a way of getting back at the GOP. Many extreme right pundits like Laura Ingraham even encouraged their listeners to vote for the more conservative Dems. I seem to remember back in 2006 how Ingraham gloated about the defeat of the GOP. Well, now those blue dogs are all full of ticks.

It’s like this. Want to know why we’re in such a mess? Don’t blame Obama. Don’t blame Harry Reid. Don’t even blame Ben Nelson. Blame every so-called conservative who voted for a Democrat or a third party loser to teach the GOP a lesson. You know who you are – and YOU DID THIS TO OUR COUNTRY.

Want to make it worse – vote for Third Party Losers and do the Tea Party Agenda thing next November.

My soul doth magnify the Lord, *

For he hath regarded *
the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth *
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me, *
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him *
throughout all generations.
He hath showed strength with his arm; *
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, *
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy has holpen his servant Israel, *
as he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed for ever.

I Think Newt Has It Right
December 20, 2009

Newt Gingrich has regained his voice and his passion. He is starting to sound like the Newt Gingrich of old. Pink Flamingo reader Sally Vee suggested this video. It takes about 10 minutes and is better in the HD version.

The Pink Flamingo agrees with Newt Gingrich. I don’t mind his passion about electing decent people to go to DC because he is 100% Republican. His eloquence is refreshing as is his historic take on this country. The Pink Flamingo appreciates having an educated historical perspective on things instead of empty doom and gloom rhetoric. I keep having this fantasy of Newt as POTUS with a GOP House and Senate. Golly!

UPDATED: Republican Voting Records and Tea Party Lies!

UPDATED:  Republican Voting Records and Tea Party Lies!
December 19, 2009

Funny thing about the alleged “Tea Party Movement”, promoted and nurtured by FOX News, it is not Republican. We’re being told by Sean Hannity that it is all about a re-vitalized conservative movement. People like Jim DeMint and Ron Paul are heralded as “pure” while men like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Bob Inglis, and Mitch McConnell are treated like dirt by conservatives as “impure”.

Well, until March and the latest ACU ratings, this is the best we can do. And – it looks like Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Bob Inglis, denigrated as “impure” may actually be “purer” conservatives than Jim DeMint and Ron Paul.

Go figure.

The WPost has their voting record database for the 111th Congress compiled. There are a few surprises.

“…The Post’s voting database showed that Graham voted with Republicans 91 percent of the time while the state’s junior senator stood with his party 87 percent of the time.

So There Are No “Neo-Nazis” of Influence?
December 19, 2009

Another one bites the dust. The Pink Flamingo is frequently castigated by the minions of the extreme far right for using that tacky word “Nazi”. Allegedly, in the world of the web, who ever uses the “Nazi” word first loses. The far right has a tendency to thumb their nose at this sort of thing and just say that the SPLC and Morris Dees are liberals and must not be believed. Well – want some dirt on R. S. McCain, Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and Neo-Nazi Bill White that doesn’t come from the SPLC?

IR129_WHITE_002Photo from SPLC

The real problem with this is that there really are Neo-Nazis in this country. The other very real problem is that a few of them have some very curious ties to some very “important” far right personalities. If you star shaking the wood pile all the usual suspects star dropping out like ticks on a North Carolina Mountain coon dog.

25‘Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids* took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.* 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. 6But at midnight there was a shout, “Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.” 7Then all those bridesmaids* got up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.” 9But the wise replied, “No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.” 10And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. 11Later the other bridesmaids* came also, saying, “Lord, lord, open to us.” 12But he replied, “Truly I tell you, I do not know you.” 13Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.*

The Trouble with Harry Teague (Acid Reflux Edition)

The Trouble with Harry Teague (Acid Reflux Edition)
December 17, 2009

The Pink Flamingo thinks one of the burning questions of the millenia should be as follows: Why would a man who is worth (allegedly) forty million bucks spend over $40,000 of the tax-payer’s money on travel for just one season – summer? I guess he was fighting those dastardly teapartiers?

“…Summer travel for the office of New Mexico’s Harry Teague (D) totaled $40,274. His neighbor, Rep. Ben Lujan (D), disbursed just $20,697. Neither office responded to requests for comment….”

It gets better. I also need to be honest and mention that Teague is a first timer and probably needs to waste all our money setting up shop.

“…Rep. Harry Teague’s disbursements begin on page 277 of the third pdf file. Teague’s office spent $899,807.89 through September, including $352,130.23 in the third quarter…”

One of the problems Democrats are having these days is trying to stay true to some sort of “value”. When you really have none it is fine if you are going for the superficial look. But, when you get backed into a corner and need to at least look like you stand for something, it gets a little problematic. It doesn’t help when you have someone ethical, honorable, and decent like Steve Pearce running against you!
