North Korea: mourning for a dead God-King

December 19, 2011

When you’re told every hour of every day of your existence that only one brilliant man stands between you and disaster, this kind of reaction to news of his death is expected:

Kim, his father, and their cronies made these people’s lives a Hell on Earth since 1945, a nightmare existence perhaps second only to being stuck in Zimbabwe, and yet they weep and beat their fists on the ground for him. Some of it may be genuine fear for the future, and I’m sure some of it is also fear of what happens if they don’t perform on cue.

And some fools think Orwell wrote fiction.

Subversive genius

The White House wants you to inform on your neighbors. Yes, if you know someone who opposes ObamaCare and posts about it on the Internet, the White House Office of Health Care Reform (aka, the Health Czar), wants you to let them know:

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

What’s next? Cameras in your homes to monitor your anti-Obama anti-social behavior?

Anyway, Gaius at Blue Crab Boulevard has had a fun idea: they want fishy links, give’em to them. I’ll let him expain:

We heartily endorse the sending of links of fish, especially crappie, to the White House!

You heard it here first. Send them the link to crappie – since that is what they are pushing. Crappy health care.

This is a gross abuse of the power of the presidency, a gross waste of our money and completely out of touch with the realities of governance. Send them the link to crappie. Give ‘em what they want – tell them what you think of them and their plan.

The Democrats must be in a panic over the rising resistance to their health care fiasco plans; not only does the White House want you to rat out wrong-thinkers, but the Democratic National Committee is denouncing citizens showing up at town-hall meetings to protest ObamaCare to their representatives as tools of the Republicans and the insurance companies.

Ironic that the administration headed by a former community organizer would go after people for, well, organizing.

Anyway, I’m off to report some fishy links to Headquarters. Gotta be a good citizen, after all.  Angel

LINKS: Sister Toldjah is displaying a fishy photo. Maybe we should report her, too. Melissa Clouthier, Bruce Henderson, and Pirate’s Cove are all subversive characters, too. There’s alway something fishy at Hot Air.

UPDATE: Added the main link, which I forgot when first posting … again. Doh
