Great Republican Solutions to Mental Health Problems…

Published April 14, 2013 by republicanfaithchat

Frankly I’ve grown tired of the libs complaining about Republicans not taking care of the mentally ill. We give them the opportunity to pray to Jesus! But when that fails to work, we have other solutions:

To attract tourist dollars, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval unveiled a cheery little ad that displays the Silver State’s sunny side and is set against a toe-tapping version of “Don’t Fence Me In,” the sort of tune that can worm its way into your head.

The governor proudly displayed a new slogan: “Nevada: A world within. A state apart.”

Funny thing, but Sandoval can’t bring himself to talk about a policy that truly sets Nevada apart: busing patients from Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas to every state in the continental United States.

“We are going to decline to comment,” Sandoval’s press secretary, Mary-Sarah Kinner, said in a recent email, before she stopped bothering to respond to my requests for comment. […]

Also noteworthy, Nevada buses many of its psych patients to those areas, 240 to the Los Angeles-Orange County area, 48 to the Bay Area and 71 to the Phoenix-Mesa-Tucson area since mid-2008.

“We’re not amused by what they’re doing,” said Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach, who, like other California officials, had been unaware of Nevada’s practice.

For years, Nevada carried out its policy quietly, failing to inform mental health care professionals on the receiving end of the bus rides.

But in February, Rawson-Neal’s staff stumbled by giving James Flavy Coy Brown a three-day supply of anti-psychotic medication, four bottles of Ensure and what he called “cheesy peanut butter crackers,” and sending him on a 15-hour Greyhound bus ride to Sacramento, where he has no family and no connections.

Brown, who has schizophrenia, made his way to the Loaves & Fishes shelter in Sacramento, where a social worker listened to his story and got his permission to call my colleague Cynthia Hubert. She has been writing about Brown ever since.

We also used the Nevada public records act to get receipts of all bus tickets purchased by the Nevada mental health department back to mid-2008 and found that Nevada authorities bused 1,500 human beings from its Las Vegas psychiatric hospital to cities in every corner of the country.

Hey feed the hungry, and care for the sick! That’s how we keep taxes low; let the libs have ’em!

On an unrelated note, get a load of these lib-tarts! This is ridiculous! They are very naughty and need to be spanked!

Defeating Obamacare with Jesuscare

Published February 26, 2013 by republicanfaithchat

All right; things haven’t been as smooth as we’d like. We have Karl Rove trying to get real Republicans to win the primary elections and the riff-raff tea party trying to get their candidates on the ballot.

Ok, it is time for real Republicans to make some concessions that might be mutually beneficial. Those Republicans of lower intellect (and lesser wealth) like Jesus stuff, and real Republicans (those with means) really don’t like paying for stuff for the poors.

So contemplate this (what I saw on facebook):

jesusyourdoctor

Now…let’s mull this over a bit. These people think that Jesus will cure them. These people always talk about religious freedom, right? And, well…what about Obamacare health plans? The libs talked about the “public option”. I saw that we require Obamacare to offer the JESUS OPTION. Tell the government to add a plan that, say, pays ministers to pray for the sick (or to not get sick at all). This is much, much, much cheaper than medicine and then the libs object, bellow on and on about “religious freedom”, how Obama is a tyrant, etc. Of course, regular vaccines will be covered too, but that is about it.

We pay less, the poors get…well…Jesus…and everyone is happy. And, even better: some Democrats will probably go for this!

Think about it: in Illinois, gay marriage passed the Illinois State Senate. They won’t brining it up….yet…in the Illinois House which is also Democratically controlled. Why? Well, one reason: in Illinois, many of the Democrats are black, and the black churches are every bit as bigoted protective of traditional marriage as our own riff-raff! Remember the blacks got Proposition 8 passed in California! (70 percent! )

We can do this!

John Roberts: TRAITOR!!!!!!

Published June 29, 2012 by republicanfaithchat

Can you believe this!!!! When we spend money getting a Supreme Court Justice Sworn in, we expect RESULTS!!! We already had RINO Justice Kennedy aboard….only to get betrayed by Justice Roberts?

I can’t believe that he decided that the mandate, dreamed up by some ultra-liberal think tank…oh wait…the Heritage Foundation is on our side….heh, heh…never mind….

Anyway, President Obama signed it therefore it must be bad!!!!

But it isn’t too late; we can still take healthcare away from the poors…just wait until this upcoming general election!

Or…barring that….buy some health insurance and hospital stock. 🙂

I guess it isn’t ALL bad since we can make money…..oh wait…YES IT IS BAD!!!! TERRIBLE!!!! If we win back both houses of Congress and the executive branch…we can……..override a Democratic filibuster in the Senate……never mind. 🙂

Paul Krugman’s moral failing….

Published February 4, 2012 by republicanfaithchat

Yes, Dr. Paul Krugman is a well paid, very famous professor who won a Nobel Prize in economics. But like most LIE-berals, he just doesn’t get it. Consider his attacks on Republicans…

Case One: he attacks David Brooks (ok, he is a RINO but hey, at the New York Times that is the best that we can do):

The good folks at EPI are upset by my colleague David Brooks’s claims that the gap between the top 20 and the bottom 30, not the gap between the top 1 and everyone else, is what really matters.

As you might guess, I’m with Larry Mishel on this; but I thought it might be useful to have a calm discussion of what someone might mean by saying that the rise of the top 1 percent isn’t important.

One thing such a person might mean is that it’s unimportant in quantitative, dollars and cents terms. But this is just false. The CBO inequality report confirms what independent studies have been saying: the rise of the top 1 percent has absorbed a large fraction (almost half, by my reckoning), of economic growth, leaving a much smaller pie for everyone else. If we look at Gini indexes, a measure of overall inequality, CBO has calculated them both with and without the top 1 percent:

He goes on to point out that 45 percent of the economic growth has gone to the top 1 percent.

Our take: there is one thing wrong with that: it is only 45 percent! Why should the sub 250K per year riff-raff (and those who would be at 250K if it weren’t for Barack HUSSEIN Obama) get anything?

Case Two: he attacks Willard “Mittens” Romney:

Still, I believe Mr. Romney when he says he isn’t concerned about the poor. What I don’t believe is his assertion that he’s equally unconcerned about the rich, who are “doing fine.” After all, if that’s what he really feels, why does he propose showering them with money?

And we’re talking about a lot of money. According to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, Mr. Romney’s tax plan would actually raise taxes on many lower-income Americans, while sharply cutting taxes at the top end. More than 80 percent of the tax cuts would go to people making more than $200,000 a year, almost half to those making more than $1 million a year, with the average member of the million-plus club getting a $145,000 tax break.

And these big tax breaks would create a big budget hole, increasing the deficit by $180 billion a year — and making those draconian cuts in safety-net programs necessary.

Which brings us back to Mr. Romney’s lack of concern. You can say this for the former Massachusetts governor and Bain Capital executive: He is opening up new frontiers in American politics. Even conservative politicians used to find it necessary to pretend that they cared about the poor. Remember “compassionate conservatism”? Mr. Romney has, however, done away with that pretense.

True, but why is this bad? It is only bad to a LIE-beral. The deserving get the breaks and the slackers get the shaft which is exactly as it should be. Really, it isn’t as if the 5 figure income slimebags have ever amounted to anything…or ever will.

Who says social mobility is dead?

Published December 31, 2011 by republicanfaithchat

Ok, Mitt Romney is a hell-bound magic underwear wearing cultist who believes some rather strange things:

But, even with that, it is clear that he truly understands the 1 percent:

And see the young man holding the chair? Well, some day, if he works very hard, he can graduate to “door opener”. That is how things should work!!!!

Then, if you work hard…ok, you’ll end up with no health insurance (socialist anyway) and not much money…but you would go to your grave with the satisfaction that you shined other people’s shoes and….get a letter from the Mayor of a small, inconsequential Midwestern rust belt city!

This month marks a significant milestone in Peoria. It was December 6th, 65 years ago, that a young man from a proud, yet humble family who had immigrated to Peoria from Greece started what would become a Peoria legend. At age 15, he made a commitment to “occupy Peoria” the old-fashioned way—the American way. It was (and still is, in my book) characterized by hard work, long hours, modest compensation and superior personal service. This traditional approach to creating capital was served up with a generous dose of kindness, charity and sincere concern for people and their community.

It will be of no surprise to iBi readers that I’m talking about George Manias, who has been “occupying” downtown Peoria since 1946. His business, of course, is shining shoes and cleaning hats, and over the years, his name and reputation became synonymous with Peoria.

He started with a one-seat shoeshine stand in a small barber shop next to the old Rialto Theater on Jefferson Street. George charged a whopping 25 cents per shine in those early days. After moving to three other locations over the years, he settled in the South Side Bank building at the corner of Main and Adams 20 years ago. The record shows he didn’t protest, carry signs or insult authority. He achieved success and occupied Peoria by saving and investing 25 cents at a time.

George has provided his unique, “hands-on” business to the great and famous, as well as to regular folks like most of us. Who else in Peoria can say that they personally “touched” the lives of presidents, vice presidents, congressmen, senators, cabinet secretaries and the CEOs of the world’s largest earthmoving machinery company? But even more impressive is that George has day in and day out, rain or shine, good economic times and bad, opened his shop to thousands of working men—and women—who wanted that special look on their shoes as they went about their business.

Really: who needs benefits and healthcare when they have earned the right to shine our shoes!
