Granny's Wisdom

The author of the following essay is a very nice older lady, a grandmother and great cook with a great deal of love and wisdom to share. She sent this by email with a request to share it, and that is what I am doing. I made one edit, removing her signature because I do not want to have Obamanation goon squads knocking on her door.

In this essay, the author is giving you clues about how to detect a conniving cult leader pulling the wool over your eyes and how to react. This is her way of gently informing the majority of the electorate that they have been conned and need to do something about it to limit the damage. I pass this on in hopes that you will take her wisdom to heart and put up a deliberate and determined fight to preserve our liberties.

I am a 69 year old woman, never an activist, always involved, but not ever a member of any “MOB. I am the mother of 3 of the most wonderful children in the world. I never had to go to a jail, or a cemetery to find my kids. I am self educated. College is something adults do and adults pay their own way. My children did the same, self educated, up to Masters and beyond. I have lived within my means and never took any assistance.

I find it very disconcerting that the United State’s President is asking US citizens to “report” misinformation. Calling the people who have active concerns about their country, “Astroturf” grass roots. This, from a man who started his career by being a “community organizer”. This is a man who bussed people into places to protest, and “question authority”. People, who often were not even from the area. Charming and handsome, and articulate and “clean”, a thug from the inner city, who knows how to manipulate people to do as he directs.

I once had a shirt that said just that, “question Authority”. Nothing wrong with that, you can question it and be respectful, and as far as I can see the people at the “tea parties” and at the town meetings were respectful, but they were tired of the bullsh--.

. “Have to make judgments in a hurry”. Assign it to underlings? What are we paying THEM for?

Mr. Obama never lied to us. Wake up America, he said “The United States is a wonderful Country, and we are going to CHANGE IT”. Well??? He is keeping his campaign promise.

Hitler told us what his plans were, so did Jim Jones.

I taught school for a few years, History, to 7th thro 12 grades. The thing I told them was to watch out for ANY group that isolates, intimidates and humiliates you, it is a cult and run, RUN as fast as you can, or Fight, fight hard.

What is the man in the Oval Office doing? Isolating the protesters, intimidating them and humiliating them in the public media.

Is this really the man you voted for? Yes it is. He did not lie to you, he wanted “change”, but you thought it was a change for your betterment, it was not, it was a change that has been in the making for some 60 years. He was the “face” the “class act” and the people of the US, who wanted to show they were “sorry for the past”, voted a man into office with an agenda and a cruel one at that.

I am a Registered Nurse. I am THE only one who does NOT care if you have insurance or not. The hospital, physio, labs, nursing homes et all care. I will care for you no matter; I work in a Jail setting, oh yes I care for the people who have nothing to give. The health care as it is proposed is a disaster. But no one seems to care, they have the votes, all 60, sounds like a dictatorship, not an advise and consent, not a debate. Just a ram through, unread unquestioned vote because we are mere children who “don’t know what is good for us”….This is a direct quote.

Isolate, intimidate, humiliate…it is all there, RUN ,FIGHT, do something.!!!

I DO NOT have the DUTY to Die. I have the right to LIFE. I have promise, I have gifts, and I have worth. I even have wisdom gained from the pain of growing. I can share. I am real. So are you.

ENERGY FOLLOWS THOUGHT………………….what are you thinking about and how are you thinking about it? Put your energy where it counts. Brave on!!…..

Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul,


The point is simple: there is the truth, and there are lies. There is information, and there is deliberate misinformation. There are facts, and there are distortions of reality.

And if you don’t know the difference between them, that’s a shame. But that doesn’t mean that the sane, intelligent, fact-seekers among us are responsible for your idiocy – its existence, its perpetration, its promotion, or its consequences.


If you honestly believe that someone like Rush Limbaugh is a straight-shooter who wouldn’t lie to you, do some research into his background. Then ask yourself if a drug-addled bigot who makes his living riling up hate and discord might not have a financial agenda in roping-in gullible people like you and keeping them as part of his “audience share” – the numbers upon which his income is based.

The same goes for Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and the rest of their ilk. These people aren’t stupid – they make their living by spewing complete and utter bullshit, knowing that people like you ARE too stupid to question it, no matter how incredibly ridiculous it is.

If you truly believe that Obama’s healthcare reform program includes talking your grandmother into being euthanized – or any of the other crap you’ve been hearing – you are an idiot, plain and simple. The facts about what is being proposed are out there, readily available. If you can’t be bothered to avail yourself of those facts, then shut the fuck up and allow those who can be bothered to inform themselves do the talking. We already have more than enough morons speaking out from a position of complete ignorance – you needn’t add to their numbers.

The facts about universal healthcare coverage in the countries that have it, along with information about how it operates and its benefits, are also available to anyone who has the mental capacity to read/listen and comprehend. If you don’t have that capacity, you have no place in the discussion.


If you believe that Sarah Palin’s ramblings – along with her hypocrisy, her questionable ethics, her complete inability to speak coherently or advisedly on every subject from how government operates to foreign affairs – qualify her as a leader of this nation or any other, you are just plain delusional.


We all have our opinion as to whether the interests of our nation are best served by Democrats or Republicans, progressives or conservatives, far-leftists, far-rightists, centrists – or any combination of the above.

But on the topic of who can contribute the most to the serving the best interests of all citizens, there is one truth that is, on its face, self-evident: those of you who live in self-imposed ignorance, or hold onto your stupidity as though it was something to be proud of, are completely, unequivocally, and undeniably useless.

Abject Stupidity – we may never wipe it out in our lifetime. But if people like YOU can’t be bothered to get a brain, morans, you can at least understand why the rest of us can’t be bothered to listen to a pointless word you say.

Are we elitists? You betcha! (Couldn’t resist translating that last comment into Palinese in an attempt to be understood by the intellectually impaired). We who seek out the real information behind proposed legislation and what it means are - you'll forgive me or not - bored to tears by those of you who can't conjure up the necessary energy to know what it is you're talking about BEFORE opening your big, fat, fuckin' mouths.

Debate the informed among us on the facts of an issue, and we’re all ears. We may not agree with you, but we are willing to engage in honest discussion.

But if all you are capable of is parroting the talking points spewed BY the ignorant FOR the ignorant, you will find that we who can actually THINK have better things to do than listen.


You speak sh!t. You cannot lie yourself to the truth.

Holy Smokes, Ema, what got you do riled up? Is the truth getting a little too close to ya? Did you see some pics of Sarah Palin over the weekend which sent you into an envious, jealous, hating rage? Sure, she's hot, but you don't have to hate her for it.

I mean, this is an extended rant you went on. But, once again, all it did was to display that it is futile to negotiate with a liberal, or to think that a liberal can see truth or light.

You, a self-described homosexual, communist, Muslim-Christian-Jew, are missing a moral center, it seems, and are very possibly guilty of the very things which you ascribe to Ben in this rant. You can't be all over the place with morals and absolutes, and then expect to claim some moral high ground - it is inconsistent.

And any conservative will see right through it and you.

You do not see the truth because you 'don't have ears to hear,' which is to say your heart is unwilling to obey the truth, so it remains hidden from you.

But, hey, glad you got a good rant in, anyway.

(and I can't wait to watch Ben tear you another body cavity...)

Ema, you are a videot. The concept of "controlling health care spending" or "costs" boils down to two possible components: rate and base.

You can cut the wages paid to doctors and nurses, fixed operating costs and or pharmaceutical costs or you can cut the quantity or quality of services delivered.

Fulfilling Obama's impossible promise would require both options.

If you bring 45 million more users into the system, you will need more doctors, nurses, support personnel and hospital beds.

You propose to cut their salaries and attract more people to the profession. Ain't there a nursing shortage already?

If you dictate to doctors how they will treat patients, and override their professional judgment, you will cause more of them to quit the profession. With fewer doctors and higher demand, you will be forced to pay them more. There goes your vaunted savings.

If you close hospitals, there will be rationing and long ambulance rides. Lives will be lost in the process.

If you arbitrarily reduce payments for drugs, drug manufacturers will go out of business. Fewer new drugs will be developed. Technological gains will come to an end.

If you deny needed care, patients will be subjected to increased morbidity and mortality; increased suffering.

Once again, Ema, you have submitted ample proof of the fact that you are a Goddamn fool of the highest magnitude.

Yo sh!t for brains Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul,

My being "a Goddamn fool of the highest magnitude" does not have anything to do with the 'facts' that you have nothing to offer but lies and fear. So far in 2009 this blog has posted 331 entries, all of which have been negative, full of distortions, and anti-American.

There is _NOTHING_ the people of USA cannot accomplish. The people through their duly elected government are moving in the 'right' direction. USA is moving away from the hatred and lies of the fear-mongers of the wacked-out extreme right wing fools of the party of no, the Republicant Party.

Go back into your closet, play with yourself, and hide.
