Opie Dopey Pulls the Race Card

Full disclosure here (as if the title of this post didn't give it away already): I don't have much use for Oprah Winfrey and never have. I do however, have a lot of respect for the success she's had in her career. Obviously there are a hell of a lot of people out there who don't share my distaste for The Oprah.

That being said, Oprah's success (and Barack the Terrible's) is exactly what makes her recent comments about Barack Obama's travails truly odd and, frankly, racist:
"Probably it's crossed my mind more times than it's crossed your mind," Oprah replied. "...I think that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he is African American. There's no question about that and it's the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody's thinking it."
But that's okay, as soon as all the old racists die, it'll all be better:
 "There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die," she said.
It's really amazing that a woman whose mouth runs so far ahead of her brain could've achieved the success The Oprah has achieved in her career. How does Opie Dopey think she managed to amass a fortune of $2.7 billion dollars with a television talk show? Here's a news flash for her: It took more than a few of those "older people" she wishes dead to watch her idiotic talk show to make her fabulously wealthy.  In a country where Blacks comprise about 15% of the population, she would be considerably poorer if she owed all of her success solely to black folks watching her show. Maybe she'll try to argue that there is inherent racism in the fact that she's not as rich as Alice Walton.

Likewise for Barack Hussein Obama. He hasn't achieved the "success" he's achieved in life without the help of a considerable number of rich white liberals. And those old racist folks Oprah wishes dead are mostly members of the George Wallace, Robert Byrd, J. William Fullbright wing of the Democratic Party. You don't get better than 50% of the popular vote in two presidential elections in a row without getting a whole lot of white folks to vote for you. In other words, ignorance and stupidity know no race.

I remember very clearly a day long ago -- February of 2008 -- when The Oprah packed the house at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa for then lesser-known Barack Obama who was running against Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination for president. Those 18,000 people -- the vast majority of them white -- who showed up to see The Oprah and Barry that day, arguably represented a major turning point in the primary race in Iowa. In fact some of us might argue that Barack the Terrible wouldn't have achieved the momentum he needed to overcome the Mrs. Bill Clinton juggernaut without The Oprah's rally in Des Moines -- thousands of White folks chanting "yes we can, yes we can" like the Obamabot Zombies they were. Many of these white folks have lived to regret that day.

There's so much you could say about the richest Black woman in the world who persists in seeing a bigot around every corner but the fact is that The Oprah couldn't have achieved the success she has if racism were as rampant as she apparently thinks it is. Neither could Barack Hussein Obama. And believe it or not Opey Dopey, it's because Barack Obama was raised a communist, grew up to be a leftist community organizer and has dedicated his presidency to dragging the greatest country on the face of the earth against it's will towards socialism that folks of all races oppose Barack Obama, not because of the color of his skin.Barack Hussein Obama is an equal opportunity destroyer and every economic measure says that Americans of all colors are worse off because he is president. Of course Oprah's station in life -- richer than 99.99999999999999999% of Americans of all colors -- tends to insulate her from the devastating economic effects of the presidency of Barack the Terrible and allows her to live comfortably, steeped in her leftist ignorance.

United Healthcare to Drop Thousands of Doctors From Medicare Advantage

Obamacare strikes again:

(Reuters) - UnitedHealth Group (UNH.N) dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks, leaving many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company's other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.
The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing "significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment." According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

For those of you who don't understand health care, there are a couple of key points in this short excerpt:

1. "underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company's other healthcare business."

The underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans is where the $500 to $700 billion to "fund" Obamacare is coming from. When all of us conservatives were telling everyone that Barack the Terrible "paid for" his pet plan to destroy American health care by first destroying Medicare, the leftists were screaming that we were liars. Not even two months into this bumbled roll out and everyone is finding out we were right.  Additionally, the Obamacare masterminds are at the point now where they are not even trying to hide that fact that Obamacare is a huge scheme where the young and healthy are overcharged (read taxed) to pay for health care for the old and unhealthy. I believe one of Obama's masterminds described this as the winners of the genetic lottery paying their fair share for healthcare.

2.  "doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing "significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment."

Taking the entire health care system of a large country like the United States and completely turning it upside down tends to cause "significant changes and pressures" that cause large insurers to have to scramble to keep up which means rearranging plans and dumping doctors.  The Obamacare genie is out of the bottle and just like you can't put toothpaste back in the tube, you can't undo the mess that is Obamacare without ripping it out at the roots. It is every other failed government attempt to meddle in healthcare times a thousand and seniors aren't the only ones who are going to be paying for this with their health if we don't cut the head off the serpent.

Enter the Brave New World of "Free Speech" Under Barack the Terrible's FCC

Bet you haven't seen this on in the Obamabot Zombie leftist media:

There' been so much news about the total incompetence of Barack the Terrible and his masterminds regarding the abysmally failing launch of the worst biggest entitlement in the history of mankind that other news has tended to fall by the wayside -- not that this story is something the leftist Obama media has any interest in covering. But while head Marxist mastermind Barack the Terrible and his "health care" minion masterminds are demonstrating their total and complete incompetence, the equally incompetent masterminds over at Obama's Federal Communications Commission are devising a plan to co-opt our free speech:

Barack the Terrible's Non-Apology Apology

There's nothing worse than an arrogant, self-absorbed jackass. When that arrogant self-absorbed jackass is also disingenuous, bald-faced lying bastard who knows nothing, is wrong about everything, and refuses to admit it, it's arrogant self-absorbed jackass times ten. It should be clear to even the blissfully ignorant that this is what we have in the liberal's president Barack the Terrible. Given this, it stands to reason then that an "apology" from an ignorant, arrogant, disingenuous, self-absorbed, lying bastard is going to be a non-apology apology. And this is exactly what we got from Barack the Terrible. So let's parse this piss-poor excuse for an apology and see if you agree. First the "apology":

Barack the Terrible Issues Bogus Executive Order on "Climate Change"

Climate change is a fact of life ,,, And it HAS been a fact of life since life on this planet began. But Barack the Terrible and his ilk want us to believe that no "climate change" EVER OCCURRED until us evil American bastards -- you know the ones that have "only five percent of the world's population but use 25% of the world's resources" (another Obamaism) -- came along to cause global warming due to the fact that we have the audacity to have the highest standard of living on the planet. So Barack the Terrible is going to make us pay for our audacity to live well:

Obamacare Operator Fired while Incompetent Sibelius "Doesn't Work for" the American People

The other day Sean Hannity called the Obamacare 800 number and got a random operator. When he started asking her questions about the site, she was frank with him, telling him what all of us already know -- the program sucks, the site sucks and there are all kinds of problems with this roll out. As you can tell from listening to the call  Earlene Davis didn't tell Sean Hannity anything we don't already know about this train wreck of a program. What did she get for her candidness? She got fired. Kathleen Sibelius, however, still has her job.What does the the pompous bureaucrat have to say about Earlene Davis's firing? Nothing apparently. I guess no one thought it was important enough to ask her about or if they did, she simply punted. What does she have to say about her incompetence? This is what she has to say about her incompetence:

City Screws Citizens Twice on "Franchise Fee"

From the "they'll get you one way or another" department comes this story about the city of Des Moines, Iowa, which overcharged its citizens by $40 million for a fee they tacked on to utility bills. Des Moines is like damn near every mid-sized city run by liberals: It's not in great financial shape. So how do they pay this money back to their citizens? Issue bonds that will be paid for by raising the current franchise fee:
