I am a grouchy, bald headed old fart filled with opinions and not the least bit shy about sharing them.

Certified Fishy and un-American.

I am proud to display the "Certified Fishy" seal of disapproval. It is an honor and a privilege to be declared fishy by those who think H.R. 3200 is a good idea. To think that my thoughts were able to tweak those that believe in social and economic justice (What ever the Hell that may be) even for a minute means I'm doing something right.

In addition to that the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (Twit-CA) and House Majority Leader,  Steny Hoyer (D-MD) declared those speaking out against health care (myself included) to be un-American. They did so in a joint opinion column that ran in today's USA Today.

Let me share part of that column with you:

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.
USA Today: 'Un-American' attacks can't derail health care debate By Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer

Does anyone remember when the New York Times exposed critical anti-terror operations? Critics called the reporters, editors and publisher of the New York Times un-American for doing that. (I used the phrase traitorous, but tact has never been my strong suit.)

Does anyone remember Rep. Nancy Pelosi and company spending hours on CNN and MSNBC vilifying President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and those complaining about the New York times? She was one of the chief cheerleaders rallying the troops against the evil right wing war mongering conspirators. Nancy and Co. were all very free with the word "un-American" while referring to the people listed above.

Hey pot, which kettle are you calling black?

A tip of the hat to my cousin who indirectly turned me on to Verum Serum. On their page they have a link to a template that allows you put whatever you want in the middle of the seal. I bought the kitty with the fish bone from for ten dollars. Well worth the money.


A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it.
