“Coach is Right” Saturday Short Stories

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

1.) Eleanor Holmes Norton Doesn’t Think We Have the Right to Know When Our President Is Selling Us Down the River

Totalitarian Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting House Delegate from D.C. believes the American people and their representatives in Congress haven’t the right to know all that is going on in government. “You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government,” claimed Norton. “That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government.” Norton’s statements were made in reference to subpoenas created by Congressman Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. According to Norton, as the subpoenas were nothing but “fishing expeditions,” the White House should not have to answer them. We “don’t have a right to know” everything that the administration does, she said, during the committee meeting chaired by Issa.

My opinion: Would someone give this lady a copy of the Constitution? We live in a Constitutional Republic, and for the low information voter, that means we elect our government officials and their powers are specified in the Constitution. How are we to make a valid decision at the polls if we don’t know what our elected officials are doing? Obamacare was passed in the dark of night, with San Fran Nan Pelosi saying “you have to pass it to know what’s in it.” Sorry, but that isn’t the way it is supposed to go. But what can we expect from lawmakers interested in reelection rather than doing the work of the people?

2.) On Wednesday, California Democrat Barbara Lee proposed the House of Representatives resolve that women will eventually be forced into prostitution in order to obtain life-sustaining food and water for their families.

“Women will disproportionately face harmful impacts from climate change,” Lee’s resolution reads. It continues with “Food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.”

My opinion: Climate change again? Won’t these people ever give up? And now we are told to beware as climate change will result in the forced practice of prostitution! Where did that come from? And isn’t it about time that those seeking equal rights should end their demands that government protect them at every turn, from every imagined hardship?

3.) White House Floats Bankruptcy Process for Some Student Debt

Federal law prohibits student loans from private lenders and from the U.S. government being wiped out in bankruptcy except in rare
circumstances. On Tuesday, President Barack Obama directed administration officials to study whether to expand bankruptcy options for “all student loan borrowers.” An administration official said the bankruptcy review would likely focus on whether to expand bankruptcy options for borrowers with student loans made by private lenders—such as SLM Corp.’s Sallie Mae and Wells Fargo & Co.—that aren’t backed by the government. Private loans make up about 10% of all student loans, with the remaining 90% made by the federal government.

My opinion: Oh good, let’s let the little snowflakes build up debt as they party at a liberal indoctrination center and then forget all about it. Already student loan debt owed the government is over one trillion dollars. Let’s put more debt on the back of future generations by forgiving private lender student loans. This will help private banks become insolvent and have to charge every loan more to recover their losses. Is this smart, or what?

4.) Stop clapping! You’re triggering feminist anxiety!

UK based outfit, the National Union of Students is hosting a conference for women, but Don’t Clap! Feminists prefer the use of Jazz Hands as it seems clapping loudly causes anxiety. Yes, anxiety is a real issue. Yes, many people suffer from anxiety. But if conference applause is a ‘trigger,’ there will no doubt be plenty of great therapists available to treat the “ailment.”

My opinion: If this is what feminists are worrying about, how will they be able to deal with the real life concerns inherent in equal rights? Will we need to fluff the pillows for them, or can they be expected to do that for themselves?

Socialist Bernie Sanders on single payer healthcare: Will you believe me or the tidal wave of red ink?

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Socialists, Democrats, Communists and liberals rely on people being kept in the dark about their policies. Things are so much easier for them that way.  When the media never asks inconvenient questions, any chance of the truth getting out is generally non-existent. But when the bottom publically falls out of one of their fake “benefits” it becomes impossible for these people to keep us in the dark. 

When the Berlin Wall was coming down the Communists were still telling people to go back to work at their useless factories where they were making useless commodities no one wanted; but the people learned the truth anyway. Even as American troops were entering the building he was broadcasting from to control Baghdad, Saddam’s mouthpiece Baghdad Bob, was telling Iraqis Saddam’s troops were slaughtering Americans in the streets and the Republican Guard was winning the battle for Baghdad; but the people knew the truth.  

And now the truth has given Vermont’s self-described Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders his Baghdad Bob moment. Last December when Democrat Peter Shumlin, the senator’s home state Governor, was forced to admit that single payer healthcare doesn’t work, Sanders too was proved a liar.  

Sanders had a dream about becoming America’s first Socialist President. He thinks he can win by riding a popular wave of support for Obamacare that exists only in faculty lounges and his own mind. Now confronted with Shumlin’s admission, Sanders has taken to saying, “It’s not that it hasn’t worked out, it hasn’t been implemented. So I think that in Vermont, many of us, including the governor, are planning about how we go forward.”

Saying it “… hasn’t been implemented” is political double talk for “….it hasn’t been tried.” But it has been tried and it has failed.  When Shumlin signed the single payer experiment into law in 2011 it was amid high hopes that Vermont would be the model for a national system.  By 2013 Sanders was saying, “If Vermont can pass a strong single-payer system and show it works well, it will not only be enormously important to this state, it will be a model [for the nation].”

With Obamacare falling apart, all people like Sanders can do is lie about it and hope we don’t become aware of the truth. This is a terrible way to be governed.

Gruber’s Obamacare lies

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Thanks to some careful research by Matt Palumbo who writes for the Foundation for Economic Education, a series of lies and half-truths being promulgated by Obamacare mouth piece Jonathan Gruber have been uncovered.  

The first lie cited is the bogus analogy Gruber makes between a mandate forcing Americans to buy Obamacare and one forcing drivers to buy auto insurance. This completely pushes aside the fact that no one is required to drive a car and thus carry auto crash liability insurance. Asserting that the burden to carry Obamacare is no different than the mandate of auto liability insurance is a lie.   

Another of Gruber’s false claims focuses on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), which mandates hospitals to provide emergency medical treatment for anyone without regard for their ability to pay. He insists that the EMTALA causes an appreciable increase in the cost of medical care for everyone else which is equally bogus.  The truth is that emergency room costs for both insured and uninsured Americans represents only about 2% of what is spent on healthcare.    

Moreover, no evidence can be found that supports Gruber’s allegation that medical bills are the number one reason for individuals having to file for personal bankruptcy protection.  In fact, a Department of Justice study found that among those seeking bankruptcy protections, although 54% had no medical insurance, 90% reported debt under $5,000.00 which indicates a lack of medical insurance was not the primary cause for their bankruptcy.      

One of the more disingenuous of Gruber’s claims is that 20,000 people a year die for want of medical insurance.

This claim was likely based on a 21 year old American Medical Association study that used suspect, estimated mortality rates.  A recent study done in Oregon revealed that mortality rates remained relatively constant without regard for whether those studied did or did not have health insurance.  

Yet another of Gruber’s lies holds that the largest group of people without insurance is the “working poor.”  A study found that 17 million uninsured people had incomes exceeding $50,000 and another 8 million made more than $75,000.   The uninsured are not the “working poor”; they are the middle class, upper middle class and illegal aliens.   

Gruber also said Obamacare would not increase our health insurance premiums; we could keep our current policy and keep our doctors.

All of this came from a sniveling little twerp who counseled Barack Obama to lie about Obamacare to fool people into accepting it.

Harvard phonies don’t like taking the medicine they so “generously” prescribe for us

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

It’s hard not to smile at this story.

There is wailing and gnashing of teeth at Harvard University the very heart of Liberland.   It seems that the benevolent folks at the august university have just realized that the same Obamacare they helped push down our throats will now be choking them as well.   “Schaddenfreude” comes to mind. The word has a nice comforting ring to it. It means enjoying the misery of another person.

The “Eat your spinach experts” in Cambridge have realized that the provisions of Obamcare require them to pay more for less just as the rest of us have to.  Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted to oppose the school’s plans to charge them higher rates than they had been enjoying, the only reason for the increase being their Imperial Lord’s Affordable Care Act.    

The best part of the story is that their protest, just as our protests, means nothing and the higher costs will kick in as planned this month anyway.     

Stunned that such a “generous” employer as Harvard would pass along costs for the shoddy care these dainty souls will soon be receiving, some have been grumbling out loud. 

Professor Richard F. Thomas, who is recognized world over as a leading authority on Virgil, was outraged enough to call the new fee schedule, “deplorable, deeply regressive, a sign of the corporatization of the university.” Of course, this fool doesn’t realize that the Harvard “corporation” has been over paying for many years but that is another story.  Another professor, one who teaches “The History of Modern France,” bleated that, “this pay cut will be timed to come at precisely the moment when you are sick, stressed or facing the challenges of being a new parent,” wow, such clarity of thought!

There is a certain irresistible pleasure that comes from seeing those who would presume to tell us what is best for us, suddenly being subjected to the  “beneficial” hand of the Almighty Government.   

There will certainly be more of this as Obamacare burns through the lives of innocent Americans made victims of stupid unworkable liberal slop; but maybe it will help us get rid of Obamacare.

The Democrats final weapon has become Black mobs made crazy by media lies

By Kevin “Coach’ Collins

Two realities are sinking into the psyche of the Democrat Party: They have no valuable ideas and the few ideas they were able to turn into law don’t work.

Reasonable people would be embarrassed. They would stand up and walk away from the “table,” after reaching these conclusions; but the Democrats are not reasonable people. It is impossible to embarrass them.  They have always been about getting and holding power and nothing else.

Last week top Democrat New York Senator Chuck Schumer admitted that he and his Party made a mistake by passing Obamacare when they did. Of course he didn’t say Obamacare itself was a mistake; Democrats are incapable of saying such a thing.

Nevertheless, what Schumer let slip is a window into the web of lies he, his Party and their stooges in the media crafted about our “economic recovery.” Schumer said, We were in the middle of recession. … People were hurting and said ‘What about me? I’m losing my job,…’”

Remember these liars have been insisting that Barack Obama’s recession ended in July 2009 some five months before they illegally rammed Obamacare down our throats with a 1 AM vote just before their Christmas break. Speaking last week, Obama admitted his executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens was unconstitutional.  

So Obamacare was a mistake and Obama’s amnesty is actually unconstitutional, voter fraud didn’t work because the Republican victory margins were much too big to pull it off. The IRS, Fast and Furious and Benghazi scandals are about to be ripped open by a conservative House. Every voting bloc except Blacks has started to drift away from the Democrats including their “future” –the young voters – who have finally begun to understand who the Democrats are.

The only weapon Democrats have left is the wild, animalistic young Black and White anarchist mobs made crazy by media and Democrat lies. They are supposed to frighten White America into thanking the Democrats for stepping in to call their thugs off and play the hero. They really believe they will be cheered for this; but what else do they have left? Fortunately for America we don’t believe this.  We know the Democrats and the media are prodding these animals on. Fortunately for America, the savage mobs of young Democrat robots are really serving as a reminder that Democrats should never be allowed to run our lives again.

The Democrats have no ideas; just thugs running wild in our streets. Now we have to put our foot on their necks and keep them down.
