A couple of things have me seeing red tonight: The first one has to do with the lying scumbags from the insurance lobby and their last ditch effort to influence the politricksters who will vote on the Baucus version of the health care reform bill tomorrow. These are the same people who made nice with his O ness just a few months ago and promised to work with him to get health reform passed. Now look at them. O man, you might be from Chicago, but you still have a lot to learn about dirty politics.
This latest report from the health insurance lobby group (AHIP) claims that premiums will shoot up if the proposed health care bills happens to pass. Can you say bullshit boys and girls? Please keep in mind that the firm that prepared this report is the same one that prepared that bogus report for big tobacco a few years back. The folks over at Radio Rwanda, as is to be expected, is all over this report, and they are treating it as if it is a legitimate study. I am sure that was the intent when the dirty rotten scoundrels put it out there in the first place. And, to be fair, it's not only them; other main stream media outlets have been giving legitimacy to this study as well.
How much do you want to bet that the spineless politricksters in Washington will be quoting from this bogus report as they run for cover? Thank goodness for baby Alex; that cute Colorado baby who the insurance companies refused to insure because he has a pre-existing condition. Yep, seems you can't be a chubby baby (17 pounds @ 4 months) if you want to get covered in A-merry-ca anymore. That is considered a pre-existing condition to big insurance. Hopefully A-merry-ca is paying more attention to baby Alex than the AHIP study. If they do that it will open up some eyes, and maybe, just this once, we can actually get something right in this country.
The second thing that pissed me off tonight was watching yet another house Negro, Stephen A. Smith, (Or as he is affectionately known here in Philly:"Screaming" A. Smith.) defend Rush Limbaugh and his right to buy an NFL team. According to house Negro Smith, all those athletes saying that they won't play for Rush are a bunch "hypocrites" who are "lying through their teeth", and once that check is put in front of them they will all sign on the dotted line.
This is typical of the house Negro: he or she always assigns traits to others that they themselves possess. Stephen A. Smith would sign the check because he is a whore, and he can't believe that other black men would have the courage and the character to walk away from money in order to stand up for something which they believe in.
What Stephen and those of his ilk don't understand is that when they come out and openly chastise young black men who are trying to do the right thing, they play right into the hands of folks like this; folks who are all too willing to put up the black man disagrees with other black man headline.
And let me say something else about Mr. Smith which is a little more personal: He is an ego- maniacal jerk, and he tries to big-time people whenever they are fortunate enough to be in his presence. (Ugly suits and all) I know, because I have been in his presence a time or two. Stephen A. Smith is not a very good journalist, but he caught a break when the Philadelphia Inquirer hired his sorry ass. ESPN loved his big mouth and gave him some shine on their network, but that lasted about as long as you can say fraud. And now this clown is telling anyone who will listen that he is down with Rush but not the athletes who spoke out against him?
Negro please! Take your sorry ass and your fucked up haircut back to Winston- Salem with that bullshit. That big fat check Rush will slip you might go far down there.
