Buy Health Insurance Or Else

That's the threat being made by Big Government - buy health insurance, or go to jail, or pay a $25,000 fine.

Senator John Ensign (R-NV) requested clarification from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold concerning penalties for non-purchase of health care at a cost of $1900. The handwritten confirmation from Barthold via Politico and Gateway Pundit:

Dear Senator Ensign,

Sec 7203 of the Code provides that if there is a willful failure to file, pay, maintain appropriate records and the like that the taxpayer may be charged with a misdemeanor with a penalty of up to $25,000 and not more than one year in jail.

Thomas A. Barthold
I'm sorry, but the government I know cannot compel free citizens to buy cheese let alone health insurance. If the threat of a $25,000 penalty or one year in jail (federal prison) doesn't convince people of the nefarious nature on Lord Obama then just sing sing the praise songs and drink the kool-aid.

Obama Praise Song Singalong

During Black History Month (formerly February) 2009, B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ, chose to promote Barack Hussein Obama with not one, but two praise songs. Here is one on video and the lyrics follow.

You Tube

Follow the bouncing balls, if you got 'em:

Song 1:
Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama

Song 2:
Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"

Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!
The first black American to lead this great nation!

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country's economy number one again!

Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!

So continue ---- Mr. President we know you'll do the trick
So here's a hearty hip-hooray ----

Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
The video was made by Charisse Carney-Nunes, The Jamestown Project senior vice president. The Jamestown Project, writes Michelle Malkin, is
“the award-winning author of the children’s books, I Am Barack Obama (2009),” and according to her biography, “a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.”

The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”
Bookworm points out that "seeing a Dear Leader song is deeply, deeply disturbing. Democracies are not supposed to celebrate individuals in that way, since the worship of an individual is one of the first steps in the march to a statist system."

Wizbang's Lorie Byrd is creeped out by all this latest in Obama worship.

Worse than the fact that these kids are being told to praise "Barack Hussein Obama" or that all the time on this could have been spent learning math or science or reading or even a decent song, is this one line:

"He said red, yellow, black or white. All are equal in his sight."

Anyone who says those of us critical of this Obama worship are overreacting, read that one line that was taught to schoolchildren. I learned a remarkably similar song when I was a child, but it was in "Sunday" school in church, not in my elementary school --
"Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world."

For Immediate Release

Response to Unauthorized Video of Class Activity
September 24, 2009
Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.
It's a strange, yet familiar, fascist world we are entering folks. As Bette Davis intoned in All About Eve, "Buckle your seatbelts, darlings, it’s going to be a bumpy night."A very long, dark and stormy night, too.

Wash Hands All Ye Who Enter Here

The US-Mexico border will have 384 fewer agents come October 1st. With nearly 1,300 miles of southern border still beyond effective control and easily breached, the Obama administration feels it's more important to reinforce the Canadian-American border. Nevermind the DoJ Accountability Office reported three terror linked people and 530 folks from special interest countries were intercepted at the Mexican border by Border Patrol agents.

While the rest of us will be less protected, the White House will gain protection. The White House has stepped up it's germ warfare arsenal with Purell hand sanitizer stations in Dear Leader's Executive Mansion. The most important station is just outside the Oval Office so Dear Leader does not succumb to the dread swine flu.

In place of the displaced Border Patrol agents, Purell sanitizing stations should be set up along the southern border so the illegals can enter with clean hands. But what's it matter when the Immigation Reform Act later this year will make all the illegals legal anyway?
