Can’t win? Just turn in your opponents to the government!
During the last 8 years when truly vitriolic things were said about the President or America in general we were lectured and told that "Dissent is Patriotic" (or derivations there in)... a message that has shifted radically since the November elections to the point that some now consider dissent to be racist.
This week saw a blog post on the official White House blog which seems to have it's own ideas:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's funny... back in 2002 when the Bush Administration pushed Operation TIPS (Terrorism Information and Prevention System) as a way to broaden intelligence gathering methods to combat possible terrorism (something I am always in favor of)... a few screamed bloody murder with regards to civil rights thinking... and yet we aren't hearing the same kind of concerns from the media yet on this.
Similar right? Not so much.
The key difference is that one was clearly a reasonable security measure with reports going to non-political security agencies with a stated intention... protecting the lives of the American people, the latter is largely political and being run by persons with clear and stated political addenda's.
What's the solution? Do just what they ask... report fishy things! But specifically things coming from the White House and other supporters of the current incarnation of ObamaCare so as to remind them that not all of us who oppose them are funded by the insurance industry or K-street lobbyists and that a significant amount of dishonesty and double-speak is coming from their own ranks.
On a side note... it’s strange that so few are asking: "who is funding the ObamaCare campaign?"
As part of this, this evening I fired off my first email to my new friends at the White House’s Health Reform Office:

Subject: Report on "Senator" Obama's disagreements with President Obama
In a recent blog post, a story linked to from the Drudge Report with the headline "Uncovered Video: Obama Explains How His Health Care Plan Will 'Eliminate' Private Insurance..." was described as "a very deceiving headline" and the speaker went on to accuse some unknown people of taking sentences and phrases out of context.
I regret to inform you that the video linked to there (and available at: http://www.breitbart.tv/uncovered-video-obama-explains-how-his-health-care-plan-will-eliminate-private-insurance/) contains the very clear words of then "Senator" Obama who which is obviously an Republican plant (possibly involving time travel or the occult) to discredit our Dear Leader.
Forgive me though, as my time at the re-education camp... I mean the Miniluv Happy Summer Camp has not come to pass yet... would you please explain exactly to this completely loyal citizen and party member how his words are being taken out of context? Exactly what is the context here? It is quite clear that the traitorous (to our Dear Leader) "Senator" Obama was advocating for a single payer health system when he said:
"I don't think we're going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There's going to be potentially some transition process..."
Especially when contrasted with lines of his from 2003 (http://www.breitbart.tv/obama-in-03-id-like-to-see-a-single-payer-health-care-plan/) where he said:
"I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program"
Even expanding on it a moment later to say:
"And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan."
While I certainly do not believe that our Dear Leader is a supporter of a single payer health system being the loyal party member I am... however given he has never said so specifically while he has been our Dear Leader, doubts can arise (in lesser and dishonest minds that is)... not that I wish to tell his eminence what to do or how to lead... only I am forced to wonder, would not it silence many of his disloyal critics if he were to come out and correct the record with the help of Minitrue and explicitly that he does not and never has, just as last week he reminded us that we've always been at war with Eastasia?
Certainly we must track down this "Senator" Obama and educate him as to the truth as it is and always has been... that our Dear Leader does not support a single payer system and has always been clear that he never has while condemning the words of "Senator" Obama... however with my limited knowledge I wonder, can we do that when this "Senator" Obama seems to have mysterious disappeared on November 16th, 2008 and only leaving numerous fragments of video behind... many of which seem to say the same thing? I worry that perhaps the followers of Emmanuel Goldstein may pose an eventual threat.
Please advise me on how I may help in tracking down this "Senator" Obama and what I can do to continue in the continuing the success of the revolution.
All hail our Dear Leader and peace be upon his long and beneficent reign!
Sincerely yours, the ever loyal and eager to serve Brendan Grant of Redmond, WA.
When trying to combat this plan we have many options, but one of the best ones may just to use their own weapons against them.
Heard some interesting, seemingly contradictory or outright dishonest statements coming from the White House or other supports of ObamaCare? Why not tell them about it?
