Prostitution & The Healthcare Bill
November 23, 2009
We can thank the Drudge Report for directing us to ABC News reporter
Jonathan Karl’s brief but extremely important piece whose title "The $100
Million Health Care Vote?” calls to mind the truth that since antiquity,
politicians have never had a single scruple against whoring themselves — for
the right price, of course.
That’s not to equate politicians with ordinary prostitutes; for as the
greatest writers have told us throughout the ages, politicians make saints
After all, never in human history has a single honest practitioner of the
"oldest profession” displayed the disgusting arrogance required to charge
millions, even billions, of damnably dirty dollars for services rendered
only to stick an entire nation with the bill, all the while demanding its
citizens take the astonishingly ugly insult lying down.
Regarding Obamacare, for example — We don’t think for a minute, do we, that
wealthy, well-connected liberal politicians intend to be the ones screwed by
cuts in Medicare; by blood and life sucking red tape; by costs associated
with a new, monstrous Federal bureaucracy; and by ugly, suffocating new
taxes that go so far as to reach into the pockets and purses of even the
poorest Americans who purchase sodas and other treats for their child’s
And when we complain about what is the most insidious, most dangerous power
grab in the nation’s history?
Well, it is now an incontrovertible fact that no less a personage than the
doyenne whose title is "Madam Speaker,” will lead the liberal charge in
denouncing us dissidents as a "mob” of "swastika” loving "evil-mongers.”
Returning now to Mr. Karl’s post, why does it represent essential reading
regarding politician prostitutes, their foul business, and so-called
The answer is simple:
Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi can’t force Obamacare on the
American public without first convincing moderate Democratic Senators to get
down on their knees and pledge a perfectly obedient fidelity to the verse
the Liberal Bible stole from Thoreau and perverted to say, "That government
is best which governs most.”
What if mere words can’t turn the trick?
No problem, for infinitely more rare than a snowflake in hell is a
politician whose mind and body can’t be bought.
And being bought Democratic politicians are, as attested to by the myriad
perverse payoffs hidden in the 2,000 pages of the Obamacare bill, one of
which, as Mr. Karl reports, is found in "a section increasing federal
Medicaid subsidies for ‘certain states recovering from a major disaster.’”
"Certain states”? "Major disaster”?
Why aren’t the "recovering” states and the "disasters” they suffered
Why does the section go on for two pages to explain how a state qualifies —
in language so intentionally and fetidly unintelligible that Dante should
have consigned its masters to one of Inferno’s lowest circles?
Jonathan Karl answers those questions with this simple statement:
"I am told the section applies to exactly one state: Louisiana, the home
of moderate Democrat Mary Landrieu, who has been playing hard to get on the
health care bill."
As stated above, this $100 million doesn’t represent the only instance of
payment for "services” in Reid’s healthcare bill; for it slips enormous sums
to Senators of other states, including Nevada (what a coincidence!),
Michigan, and New Jersey.
Consider, therefore, the full implications of an ugly whoring made all the
uglier because it takes place with respect to one of the most important
issues ever to come before the American people, literally a life and death
issue that encompasses 16% of GDP.
It forces the people of Pennsylvania (a state with its own financial
problems) to pony up cash to pay for Barack, Harry, and Nancy’s "special
relationship” with Senator Landrieu and a host of other political hookers,
who, true to form, will lie on their mothers’ graves that they are acting
upon deeply held moral and political principles.
It forces the citizens of economically ravaged Ohio to dig deep to meet the
demands of high-priced "commercial sex workers” such as Senators Carl Levin
and Debbie Stabenow, who, reigning "up there,” look down on Ohioans,
insisting that they, like the rest of us, keep their mouths shut as they pay
And that’s not to mention every other citizen forced to fork over cash to
liberal politicians who demand payment for the "services” they have rendered
— not just to the Anointed Trio but to pharmaceutical companies, the AMA,
unions, and so-called advocacy organizations such as the AARP (which, under
Obamacare, stands to amass a gigantic pile of gold selling medical
With these sordid facts placed in the light of day, the question before us
What should we do about one of the most egregious, dangerous, contemptible,
in-your-face outrages with which political prostitutes have insulted the
American people since this nation was established?
Well, the people of Louisiana, being possessed with the power of recall, can
immediately begin an all-out, all-in battle to remove Senator Landrieu from
office — the success of which would constitute the most powerful blow
advancing government of, by, and for the people since "the embattled farmers
. . . fired the shot heard round the world.”
The rest of us?
Those same farmers, who "by the rude bridge” on that April day set about
bequeathing to their daughters and sons the greatest social and political
legacy ever dreamed and bled into reality, would tell us never to relent in
keeping up the fight against Obamacare with all of our energy, gifts, and
"Never relent,” they would say, "even if an insidiously ‘compromised’
version of it is writ into law.”
And they would be speaking the truth; for as their actions showed with
respect to a political prostitute who tried to lay the price of his
insatiable love of power and money upon them, nothing in politics is
inevitable or permanent unless by cowardice, foolishness, or both "We the
People” allow it.
