My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the tag “obamacare”


Hey folks, as all that follow me, and keep up with not only my blog, but also those of you who have purchased one of or both my CDs, know I am concerned about the excesses in our government.  Well, I have discovered another area where we as a country have over extended ourselves for the sake of immigrants.  Sometimes, it is not just for immigrants but we do foolish things for our citizens.  At times, we spend a lot of money to help a segment of our population when it is not necessary.  We do things to solve problems when there is a much easier solution.  BUT NO, our leaders in all their glory and smarts just throw money at the problem.  Your and my money, not their own. And by the way, I thought no immigrants were to be covered by Obamacare.  Just caught that “FOOL” in another lie.

One such problem arose, or came to my attention, the other day when I got a letter from the health insurance company that covers my wife.  Most, if not all of you, have received this letter but like so many things you simply did not notice.  Maybe I noticed just because I’m a GOBY.  Let me explain the term GOBY for you.  When my first grandchild came along, my daughter and son-in-law asked me what name I wanted to use.  I told them it was their job to name the child; and they made me understand, “What name did I want to be called?”  I thought for just a second and replied, “grumpy old bastard” fits me pretty well.  So they took the three letters, added a “y” so now I am “GOBY”.  True story and by the way I’m proud to wear the title and proud of it.  It is like a “badge of honor” and I sparkle with delight when the kids holler, “GOBY, GOBY come here”. I even have other people who have taken to calling me “GOBY”; and it does not offend me even the slightest. Now, back to the insurance “thing-a-ma-jig”.  They, the company, had included a couple of pages, front  and back, of the info in different languages.  I did not count how many languages but there where about 30, maybe more.  Some I had never heard of.  Let me ask you if you have ever heard of Chamorro? How about Telugu? How about Punjabi or Yoruba?  Just how many people or we talking about?  It can not be more than a very few.  For you doubters, just walk around all day and ask everyone you come in contact with if they speak one of these.  And I mean everyone, in business, at WalMart, everywhere you go, then report back to me. If you can find even one, then maybe I’ll “quit my bitchin'”.  They even have it printed in Navajo, Cherokee and Choctaw.  These are native American languages.  Just how many Indians do we have in this country that do not understand and speak English.  None is the answer for all you “liberal dumbasses”. Thank you so very much!!! In order for the government to produce such a document they have to employ someone who can speak and write in these languages.  That cost “MONEY”, lots of “MONEY”.  That is money from you and me as in “TAXES”.  This is done with all government correspondence and is a “WASTE”.  The taxes are higher because they have to pay someone to “sit on their ass” until they need them to write something, I guess.  It is the same thing that WalMart does when they and Home Depot list every item in Mexican.  They have to charge you and I more for every item to cover the cost of doing so; and it does not benefit most of us a bit. Call me racist, or what ever, I do not care; for I have broad shoulders and can carry the load.  Just don’t do it to my face because it might just lead to an “ass whupping.”  Yours or mine, but an ‘ass whupping” just the same.

I can hear it all now, all you people saying, “this is no big problem” and you are right I guess. But, do you not realize all these little things add up to a lot of expenditure that could be avoided?  Always remember, “A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED”.  It only makes “COMMON SENSE” to save what you can.  It’s a “penny here, a penny there” and soon you have dollars.  So, go out today and do the survey so you can report back to me.  Also, go out and use some “COMMONSENSE” as it is free unless you send me a donation or you buy one of my CDs from the link below.

Well, here we are almost to the end of enrollment of this SCAM called Obamacare or the ACA which ever you prefer.  This last week the President was on the T.V. saying that since we have 4.2 million signed up it is a success.  Let me ask everyone, “do you remember the goal of the ACA?”  Unless I’m mistaken, we have spent some 6 trillion dollars to have the uninsured covered.  That was the goal of the ACA when this all started.  I remember how they, the democrats, were horrified for the 40 million uninsured.  Now, they, the democrats, are calling it a success as they say we have 4.2 million signed up.  If we took their numbers as “gospel”, how the hell do you call 4.2 sign ups successful when you had a goal of 40 million?  This is a joke or better yet a crime against the good hard-working Americans.

I’ll bet you whatever amount any of you wish to lose, that the number of sign-ups is going to end up around 3 million if they are lucky.  Now let’s look at how many had insurance before the ACA, then lost coverage because of the ACA…that number was 5.9 million.  If you subtract that from either number, theirs or mine you are still in a negative position.  We spent all this time, money and effort to come to a point where we now have more uninsured people than we had before we started.  Is this what they, the democrats, are calling a success? If so, they, the democrats, have no “COMMON SENSE”; but, I have been putting forth that opinion for years.  If ever they have shown any better example of this, I truly do not know when it might have been.  If this does not cause you concern for any vote for a democrat you might have cast, then you are just as “brain dead” as the ones you have voted for and deserve “everything you get”.  If this, the ACA, has not convinced you that the democrat’s brains are “hardwired” backwards then let us consider what was put forth by one of the true scholars of the democratic party this last week.  You may have not heard of this because the corrupt media is hiding the quote from the public.  The Congress person was Sheila Jackson Lee and she was talking about how America had stuck together, or something, for some 400 years.  We could dismiss this as a misstatement if not for her other statement about the “astronauts walking on Mars”.  This lady, term used loosely, is an embarrassment to not only the democrats but to all Americans.  It is truly a wonder that she has not died of “hoof  ‘n mouth” decease.

The mid-term elections are just around the corner and will be upon us before we know it; so, I’m going to ask but for one favor from my blog audience and that is to do your homework before casting your vote.  Take a little time to investigate the issues and where the candidates stand on the issues.  Remember the things that I have shown you such as: the democrats tried to take “GOD” out of their platform so if you are a “Christian” you have no reason to vote with any democrat, and that they, the democrats, have no “COMMON SENSE”, just another reason not to vote for any democrat.  If you do continue to vote for these immoral, buffoon liberals, then you really do deserve the obscene treatment you will receive.  After all, if you are one of them, go ahead and join them although it shows that you have no “COMMON SENSE” and are just following as they lead you to slaughter.  You have been warned several times before and during this post, at least twice, so choose your “poison” carefully as it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.


I guess you would like to know what you’re getting blamed for; so, I will tell you.  Not only are you at fault for this Obama fellow being elected (twice you dumb asses), but also for this mess we call Oscamacare.  Is this not the biggest scam ever pulled on the American voters?  But, as I said, “it is all your fault”.  You, the American voter, put in him office twice.  “COMMON SENSE” says “screw me once, shame on you; but, screw me twice, shame on me”.  Well, it is shame on me time for the voters.  I’m sure that some of the blame goes to the Obama campaign because they could not help but cheat; but, that does not relieve you, the voter, of your part in this scam.

This law was passed without one republican vote, so the democrats truly own it.  They, the democrats, passed the law and have stood still for 27 changes in the law.  It is not what they voted into law; but, these spineless bastards just keep allowing this to happen.  The House could start “impeachment” proceedings; but, it would be blocked by the democrats that control the Senate.  If the democrats in the Congress or the Senate want any chance of reelection, they should start the process as it is their law that is being trampled upon.  Are they really that stupid that they cannot see the “big middle finger” that Obama is flashing their way?  He has told them in effect that they are too stupid to handle this; so, he will over ride the bill and make the changes himself even if it cost them their jobs.  We, the “COMMON SENSE” folks, tried to tell them from the start of his term that he “cared only for his well-being”; but, they were blinded by the “black hood” over their eyes.  The democrats have no one to blame for the “black cloud” hanging over their heads except themselves.

The President has just changed the “employer mandate” yet again.  Everyone was saying, “just wait until the  employer mandate kicks in just before the mid terms” it will be mass mayhem.  The administration realized everyone was right; so, they postponed the mandate until after the election.  “ALL ABOUT POLITICS”.  Talk about trying to “rig” elections.  They, the democrats, know that will postpone the pain that the voters will experience until after they have been reelected.  You know what?  It just might work as the American voter is just that stupid.  I challenge anyone reading this to walk down the street in any town they choose and ask the people on the street about the delay of the “employer mandate” and I will “kiss a fat man’s ass” if more than 20 percent even have a clue.  Therefore, my conclusion is “AMERICA, IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT” and it really pisses me off.   We have men/women fighting and dying so that you have the right to express yourselves by casting an informed vote and you just throw it all away.  Again, “SHAME ON YOU AMERICA”!!!

It is time for all you “liver-lilied dumb asses” to educate yourselves about the issues before you cast your next vote.  Get “off your ass and on your feet, outa the shade and into the heat”.  This is your country so get out there and take it back from this “COMMUNITY ORGANIZER” and his minions.  They are leading you to slaughter and you are dumbly following along.  I, myself, am embarrassed for you since it seems as though you are too “brain washed” to be embarrassed for yourselves.  You are going to wake up someday and say, “what the hell happened to my America?” and I’ll simply tell you that the “COMMUNITY ORGANIZER” just screwed you while you were sleeping.  Please do not let this “fool” steal this great country from you.  I know most of you are not like me as “I would like to pinch his head off and swear to GOD he just died” but at least make yourselves aware of the issues.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.


How could anyone miss one of the latest lies from President Obama.  Ever hear, “If you like your plan you can keep your plan; or if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period”?  This was just a portion of lies, deeds and statements that this President has made in order to remain in power.  Do you really believe that the people would have re-elected this fool if he had told them the truth about how they would lose the insurance they had for a more expensive plan?  Don’t hardly think so! When Mr. Romney brought this up during the debates, your President, not mine, looked directly into the camera and lied knowing all the while if he told the truth, or if the people found out the truth, he would have been defeated.  He lied for his own personal gain.  We all, the conservatives, tried our best to explain it; but they, the democrats, got away with another lie.  The following list is info collected from the internet about all the misgivings of this President.  They are listed here, a few but not all, and I ask you not to believe me; go check it out for yourselves.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do your own homework.

As mentioned previously, this is just a portion of what this President has done and said that is not good for the country.  Let me explain one more example which may finally convince you that this man is clueless as to true business practices.  He recently said, “that by extending the unemployment benefits we could develop 200,000 jobs”.  Really Mr. President, is this the best you can do?   If that is true, then it would make good “COMMON SENSE” for us all to go on unemployment benefits.  Just how many jobs do you want?  Just figure out how much welfare, as that is what the unemployment benefits have become, do you need to put everyone back to work.  Did you catch that?  He wants to give benefits to keep you unemployed to form more jobs.  Who the hell is going to do the jobs if we are all on unemployment?  As stated previously, “this man is clueless”.

To wrap this up, in the future when these idiots from the left make such foolish remarks, call them out.  We should have a press that does that, but most of them are just as clueless and just as dishonest as this entire administration.  Please hold each and every representative responsible, party be damned.  If they do not do what is best for this country, then send them packing.  After all it just makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.


It’s your fault; no, it’s your fault.  Sound familiar?  It is what both the House and the Senate are saying to one another and it is what you hear from your kids if you have more than one kid.  There is some blame for both sides; but, we really need to examine the issue in-depth to find the culprit.  So, I’m going to throw out my two cents worth of “COMMON SENSE” to see if I can make “heads or tails” out of this mess.

First, let me in all fairness proclaim that I know why the parties can not get along.  One party is  “the party of COMMON SENSE” and tries to offer a logical argument; while, the other party’s  brains are hardwired completely different and cannot even begin to understand “the COMMON SENSE approach”.  You all know from my blog title that I’m a “COMMON SENSE” guy; and because I think you can solve most if not all problems thru “COMMON SENSE,” then I must think the Conservatives are right and they are the ones looking at this from the “COMMON SENSE” angle.

The House of Representatives made three proposals, or passed three bills, that went to the Senate only hours before the government shutdown.  Their first choice was to try to defund DemoCare.  That is the true name that this bill should bear since it was passed 100% by the democrats with zero support of republicans.  That makes this DemoCare and they own the damn thing lock, stock and barrel.  When that was rejected by the Senate, the House tried a second time with a bill “to remove the individual mandate” similar to the way President Obama removed the business mandate.  The Senate rejected that also; so, the House tried a third time with a bill that said basically “Everyone should be treated exactly the same under the terms of DemoCare”.  What a great concept!!! Everyone, even the lawmakers and their staffs right along with President Obama and his family, should have to join a “government exchange”.  That would mean that the lawmakers would have to live with the laws they pass for you and I to follow.  “But, not only no, but hell no” the Democratic Senate wanted no part of anything so fair. Now, I think you can begin to see why I say the repubs are of the “COMMON SENSE” folks while the Dems are lawmakers with brains that are “hardwired” different from the common folk.  For the life of me, I do not understand why anyone would vote for a group of “elitists” who thought they should not follow the laws they set for the common folk.  They exempt themselves from all sort of laws which they require for the commoners.  Why hell, they do not fall under the social security program; but, sure as hell, tell us we should not only follow it but be damn grateful that they give it to us as an “entitlement program”.  “ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM MY ASS”, EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU PAID INTO THE PROGRAM SO NEVER EVER LET THEM MAKE YOU FEEL THAT IT IS AN ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM.  YOU EARNED EVERY PENNY YOU GET!!!!

I’m going to become an oracle here in that I’m going to predict massive indenity fraud in this DemoCare.  They are hiring some 16K navigators to help people sign up for this program.  Does any one recall Acorn and all the fraud associated with their group?  Many charges were filed; but, I do not believe anyone ever went to jail for voter fraud.  These are the same type of people they will hire for this program.  The idenity theft rings are already seeding the navigator work force with their own people and the fraud will run rampant .  Just remember that you heard it from the “all-seeing, all-knowing” “COMMON SENSE” guru.

Folks, if after reading this “COMMON SENSE” approach to this government shutdown and you still do not understand, then I can only come to the “COMMON SENSE” thought that you are one of those illogical dunderheads and that your brain is “hardwired” backwards. As Jeff Foxworthy might say, and it makes good “COMMON SENSE”, “You might be Demoneck”.  Well, good luck with that; and, we do not have to worry that “COMMON SENSE” will ever get in the way of you running in reverse.  Please do the world a favor and please never procreate as you will only lower the intelligence level.  Thank you so very much.

Don’t Be Just Another Old Dumb Ass!

That’s right, I said Dumb Ass! If you believe what the Obama campaign is trying to feed you on Medicare, then you are a complete Old Dumb Ass, period.

Folks, the Dems are currently stealing $716 billion, that’s with a B not a M, from Medicare to fund ObamaCare. The thievery will result in reduced payment to doctors and hospitals which in turn means all you old dumb asses will no longer have enough services to tend to your needs.

This is one of those things Nancy Pelosi was talking about when she said “We have to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it”. They certainly did not tell you this ,or want to do so, before they got it passed 100% by the Dems in the House and Senate.

This is going to destroy Medicare if you sit by and allow Obama to be re-elected. If you do so, then you’ll deserve exactly what you will get.

The Dems say they are trying to save Medicare.  Common Sense will tell you they can’t be trying to save it by cutting $716 Billion out of the program. Wait! Maybe, just maybe, it will work as well as stimulus. Remember that one?  They said they could get us out of debt through spending more– and borrowing more– and paying more interest on the debt. Let me ask you something, can you spend more than you get from social security without going broke?  Common Sense tells us no way!

So get out there and help remove Obama from office and let’s show them we do not believe in his “Obama Scare“.

By the way I am in your age group, but I am not an “Old Dumb Ass” just an “Old Ass”!
