Bart Stupak Threatened “I Hope You Die”

Bart Stupak.

If Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) hadn’t been threatened enough, the regime of the conservative extremists drops yet another bombshell. Opposing abortion rights,  Stupak has been on the receiving end of the latest threatening voicemail, including, but not limited to, death threats.

Here are a few chilling voicemail message to Rep. Stupak as reported by CBS News:

“Congressman Stupak, you baby-killing motherf***er, you turncoat son of a b****, I hope you bleed out your a**, got cancer and die, you motherf***er. You do not, You do not, um, say that you’re pro life and then for a few bucks, be a turncoat and hurt the country you [ Bleeping ], I hope you die.”

“You are a bastard and a baby killer. You will rue the day you did this, Mr. Stupak. You are a disgusting man, and I hope you’re haunted the rest of your living days…”

And the straw that broke the camel’s back was when one woman from the extreme right who left Rep. Stupak a message called him a “piece of human shit,” and said “there are millions of people across the country that wish you ill.” It was fellow Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) who dubbed Stupak the “baby killer.” It is attacks like the one Stupak received that gets Democrats on edge and it has gotten out of control. Seriously, tea partiers… grow the F up. This north-vs-south war has been over since 1865 and the B.S. that’s going on has got to stop. I don’t care if you are democrat, independent, or republican, we better stop this bullcrap before it’s too late. Let’s focus on health care for the American people.

Biden Drops the F-Bomb

Vice President Joe Biden’s wife may want to wash his mouth out with soap before he cusses next time. Within minutes of signing the health care bill into law, Biden spoke to President Obama, calling the health care bill “a big f@!?$#%ing deal.”

I bet the whole state of Delaware was devastated when they heard that. But Biden wasn’t the only veep to drop the F-bomb via open-mic. The second most recent F-bomb from a vice president occured on June 25, 2004, when then-Vice President Dick Cheney got really pissed off at Senator Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) when he called Cheney a “bad Catholic.” Cheney then told him to “go f**k yourself.”

Warning: Stride Mega Mystery Gum

STOP!! Do NOT reveal the Mystery Flavor under any circumstances.

As if the fuckers from Stride Gum hadn’t threatened to find me enough, the Mega Mystery flavor hit store shelves last month (and you better spit it out right now!). Instead of the traditional “S” logo, a question mark appears… to prove a point, and that point is the flavor will keep you guessing. But I must warn you…..you are not allowed to reveal the Stride mega mystery flavor. If you do a team of Stride bouncers will find you and give you a beatdown you’ll never forget.

Hmmmm…. didn’t Kool-Aid think of this before? I mean, minus the threat to beat the shit out of anyone who reveals the mystery flavor. Seriously, Stride-stalkers, you need to stop sipping on that sizzyrup. Good luck trying to beat the lawsuit hanging over your heads. How you like them apples, bitch!!!!

Stride Gum executives can be such stalkers. Sheesh!!

Reform on Healthcare Reform

Now that the Senate passed the health overhaul package yesterday, what does that mean to those uninsured or underinsured? Who will benefit from it? Who will pay?

To be clear, the health reform bill does not become law until President Barack Obama signs it. If signed, the package would be expected to cover some 32 million additional Americans by 2019, but most Americans will be affected.

Should Obama sign the health package bill, the uninsured Americans will be forced to buy health insurance. If you can’t afford it, the government will provide subsidies to help cover your medical costs. If you can afford it but don’t want to be insured, you’ll be fined. Even at a relatively high unemployment rate, you’d still have to buy coverage. While most Democrats approve of this bill, a large number of Republicans do not. But let’s be honest — why does this issue have to be about politics?

I’ve heard many arguments about universal health care’s correlation with socialism. I’ve heard socialized medicine and the like and the amount of waiting time to get treatment. Take Shona Holmes for example. She is from Canada. She had to wait five to six months to get surgery for her brain tumor in Toronto. Distraught and impatient, she flew from Ontario to Arizona where she was treated immediately.  “In six months, I would have died,” says Holmes.

Though brain tumors can cause serious — and sometimes fatal — injuries, a report on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) News stated the claim that she would have died was laughable. Holmes’ “brain tumor” was, in fact, a benign Rathke’s cleft cyst, and is not known to be fatal. A neurosurgeon told CBC News that he’d never heard of someone dying from the condition.

Before we can jump to such bold conclusions, how can we outweigh the pros and cons of universal health care in America?

Ahhhh……Spring

‘Nuff said.

New Buses Coming to New Britain, Bristol

It’s official!!!!! After 13 long years have passed by — as per mandate — CT TRANSIT’s new buses are on their way onto New Britain and Bristol streets. Because the New Britain/Bristol division has the oldest fleet, it’s the first in line for the new buses.

These buses are from New Flyer and 35 feet long, unlike their counterparts from Hartford or New Haven at 40 feet, and they use diesel fuel. They are part of the $152 million stimulus package for transit projects and purchases Connecticut received last year.

More people on buses mean fewer cars on the road – and that translates into reduced congestion and cleaner air.
M. Jodi Rell, Connecticut Governor (R)

Look for the new buses in the New Britain and Bristol areas starting this spring!
