“Most Republicans Are Fat Asses”

fatasses

I’ve got to admit that I’ve given up watching cable news, but this segment from Sean Hannity’s show in which the statement “most Republicans are fat asses” is used was just too wild to ignore.

My favorite part is the cigarette getting lit up on-air, but the argument in favor of nanny state laws because some citizens are “fat asses” was interesting. It’s as though we citizens don’t have a right to choose when it comes to our personal lifestyles.

Which is an amazing argument for anyone on the left to make given their positions on issues like gay marriage and abortion. According to the political left, the government shouldn’t define marriage for an individual or stop a woman from choosing an abortion, but the government can and should regulate what size soda I can buy?

Are Republicans fat asses? Maybe we are (I’m sort of a fat ass, so I guess the tag fits). But the real question is, what business is that of the government’s?

Our friends on the left will argue that individual health choices impact over all health care/health insurance costs. And they’re right, but they’re also the ones who put us in this position with their push to collectivize health insurance and health care.

Which lays bare the risk of collectivizing health care. Once we’re all responsible for one another’s health, suddenly our individual lifestyle choices are subject to public policy.

    Overall, people who were overweight but not obese were 6% less likely to die during the average study period than normal-weight people. That advantage held among both men and women, and did not appear to vary by age, smoking status, or region of the world.

    I’m by no means skinny (don’t really identify with the Republic party though) and a conservative so for the sake of the argument I’ll call myself a Republican. I’ll concede that most Republicans are ‘fat asses’ if that dumb b*tch will concede that most Democrats are on welfare and us fat asses with jobs support their lazy asses. Deal?

        and yet:

        “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with
        the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if
        appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond
        effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of
        mass destruction programs.” — From a letter signed by Joe Lieberman,
        Dianne Feinstein, Barbara A. Milulski, Tom Daschle, & John Kerry
        among others on October 9, 1998

        “This December will mark three years since United Nations inspectors
        last visited Iraq. There is no doubt that since that time, Saddam
        Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that
        biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back
        to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to refine
        delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile
        program to develop longer- range missiles that will threaten the United
        States and our allies.” — From a December 6, 2001 letter signed by Bob
        Graham, Joe Lieberman, Harold Ford, & Tom Lantos among others

        “Whereas Iraq has consistently breached its cease-fire agreement
        between Iraq and the United States, entered into on March 3, 1991, by
        failing to dismantle its weapons of mass destruction program, and
        refusing to permit monitoring and verification by United Nations
        inspections; Whereas Iraq has developed weapons of mass destruction,
        including chemical and biological capabilities, and has made positive
        progress toward developing nuclear weapons capabilities” — From a joint
        resolution submitted by Tom Harkin and Arlen Specter on July 18, 2002

        “Saddam’s goal … is to achieve the lifting of U.N. sanctions while
        retaining and enhancing Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction programs. We
        cannot, we must not and we will not let him succeed.” — Madeline
        Albright, 1998

        “(Saddam) will rebuild his arsenal of weapons of mass destruction and
        some day, some way, I am certain he will use that arsenal again, as he
        has 10 times since 1983″ — National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, Feb
        18, 1998

        “Iraq made commitments after the Gulf War to completely dismantle all
        weapons of mass destruction, and unfortunately, Iraq has not lived up
        to its agreement.” — Barbara Boxer, November 8, 2002

        “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are
        confident that Saddam Hussein retained some stockpiles of chemical and
        biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to
        build up his chemical and biological warfare capability. Intelligence
        reports also indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons, but has not
        yet achieved nuclear capability.” — Robert Byrd, October 2002

        “There’s no question that Saddam Hussein is a threat… Yes, he has
        chemical and biological weapons. He’s had those for a long time. But the
        United States right now is on a very much different defensive posture
        than we were before September 11th of 2001… He is, as far as we know,
        actively pursuing nuclear capabilities, though he doesn’t have nuclear
        warheads yet. If he were to acquire nuclear weapons, I think our friends
        in the region would face greatly increased risks as would we.” — Wesley
        Clark on September 26, 2002

        “What is at stake is how to answer the potential threat Iraq
        represents with the risk of proliferation of WMD. Baghdad’s regime did
        use such weapons in the past. Today, a number of evidences may lead to
        think that, over the past four years, in the absence of international
        inspectors, this country has continued armament programs.” — Jacques
        Chirac, October 16, 2002

        “The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of
        threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction,
        ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond
        today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be
        emboldened tomorrow.” — Bill Clinton in 1998

        “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports
        show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and
        biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his
        nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to
        terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no
        evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11,
        2001. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will
        continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical
        warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he
        succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security
        landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects
        American security.” — Hillary Clinton, October 10, 2002

        “I am absolutely convinced that there are weapons…I saw evidence back
        in 1998 when we would see the inspectors being barred from gaining
        entry into a warehouse for three hours with trucks rolling up and then
        moving those trucks out.” — Clinton’s Secretary of Defense William Cohen
        in April of 2003

        “Iraq is not the only nation in the world to possess weapons of mass
        destruction, but it is the only nation with a leader who has used them
        against his own people.” — Tom Daschle in 1998

        “Saddam Hussein’s regime represents a grave threat to America and our
        allies, including our vital ally, Israel. For more than two decades,
        Saddam Hussein has sought weapons of mass destruction through every
        available means. We know that he has chemical and biological weapons. He
        has already used them against his neighbors and his own people, and is
        trying to build more. We know that he is doing everything he can to
        build nuclear weapons, and we know that each day he gets closer to
        achieving that goal.” — John Edwards, Oct 10, 2002

        “The debate over Iraq is not about politics. It is about national
        security. It should be clear that our national security requires
        Congress to send a clear message to Iraq and the world: America is
        united in its determination to eliminate forever the threat of Iraq’s
        weapons of mass destruction.” — John Edwards, Oct 10, 2002

        “I share the administration’s goals in dealing with Iraq and its
        weapons of mass destruction.” — Dick Gephardt in September of 2002

        “Iraq does pose a serious threat to the stability of the Persian Gulf
        and we should organize an international coalition to eliminate his
        access to weapons of mass destruction. Iraq’s search for weapons of mass
        destruction has proven impossible to completely deter and we should
        assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” — Al
        Gore, 2002

        “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that
        Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing
        capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.”
        — Bob Graham, December 2002

        “Saddam Hussein is not the only deranged dictator who is willing to
        deprive his people in order to acquire weapons of mass destruction.” —
        Jim Jeffords, October 8, 2002

        “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and
        developing weapons of mass destruction.” — Ted Kennedy, September 27,
        2002

        “There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein’s regime is a serious danger,
        that he is a tyrant, and that his pursuit of lethal weapons of mass
        destruction cannot be tolerated. He must be disarmed.” — Ted Kennedy,
        Sept 27, 2002

        “I will be voting to give the president of the United States the
        authority to use force – if necessary – to disarm Saddam Hussein because
        I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his
        hands is a real and grave threat to our security.” — John F. Kerry, Oct
        2002

        “The threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is
        real, but as I said, it is not new. It has been with us since the end of
        that war, and particularly in the last 4 years we know after Operation
        Desert Fox failed to force him to reaccept them, that he has continued
        to build those weapons. He has had a free hand for 4 years to
        reconstitute these weapons, allowing the world, during the interval, to
        lose the focus we had on weapons of mass destruction and the issue of
        proliferation.” — John Kerry, October 9, 2002

        “(W)e need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous
        dictator, leading an oppressive regime. We all know the litany of his
        offenses. He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so
        consistently prone to miscalculation. …And now he is miscalculating
        America�s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for
        weapons of mass destruction. That is why the world, through the United
        Nations Security Council, has spoken with one voice, demanding that Iraq
        disclose its weapons programs and disarm. So the threat of Saddam
        Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real, but it is not new. It
        has been with us since the end of the Persian Gulf War.” — John Kerry,
        Jan 23, 2003

        “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a
        threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the
        mandates of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass
        destruction and the means of delivering them.” — Carl Levin, Sept 19,
        2002

        “Every day Saddam remains in power with chemical weapons, biological
        weapons, and the development of nuclear weapons is a day of danger for
        the United States.” — Joe Lieberman, August, 2002

        “Over the years, Iraq has worked to develop nuclear, chemical and
        biological weapons. During 1991 – 1994, despite Iraq’s denials, U.N.
        inspectors discovered and dismantled a large network of nuclear
        facilities that Iraq was using to develop nuclear weapons. Various
        reports indicate that Iraq is still actively pursuing nuclear weapons
        capability. There is no reason to think otherwise. Beyond nuclear
        weapons, Iraq has actively pursued biological and chemical weapons.U.N.
        inspectors have said that Iraq’s claims about biological weapons is
        neither credible nor verifiable. In 1986, Iraq used chemical weapons
        against Iran, and later, against its own Kurdish population. While
        weapons inspections have been successful in the past, there have been no
        inspections since the end of 1998. There can be no doubt that Iraq has
        continued to pursue its goal of obtaining weapons of mass destruction.” —
        Patty Murray, October 9, 2002

        “As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, I am keenly aware
        that the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons is an issue of
        grave importance to all nations. Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the
        development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat
        to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons
        inspection process.” — Nancy Pelosi, December 16, 1998

        “Even today, Iraq is not nearly disarmed. Based on highly credible
        intelligence, UNSCOM [the U.N. weapons inspectors] suspects that Iraq
        still has biological agents like anthrax, botulinum toxin, and
        clostridium perfringens in sufficient quantity to fill several dozen
        bombs and ballistic missile warheads, as well as the means to continue
        manufacturing these deadly agents. Iraq probably retains several tons of
        the highly toxic VX substance, as well as sarin nerve gas and mustard
        gas. This agent is stored in artillery shells, bombs, and ballistic
        missile warheads. And Iraq retains significant dual-use industrial
        infrastructure that can be used to rapidly reconstitute large-scale
        chemical weapons production.” — Ex-Un Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter in
        1998

        “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working
        aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear
        weapons within the next five years. And that may happen sooner if he can
        obtain access to enriched uranium from foreign sources — something that
        is not that difficult in the current world. We also should remember we
        have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development
        of weapons of mass destruction.” — John Rockefeller, Oct 10, 2002

        “Saddam�s existing biological and chemical weapons capabilities pose a
        very real threat to America, now. Saddam has used chemical weapons
        before, both against Iraq�s enemies and against his own people. He is
        working to develop delivery systems like missiles and unmanned aerial
        vehicles that could bring these deadly weapons against U.S. forces and
        U.S. facilities in the Middle East.” — John Rockefeller, Oct 10, 2002

        “Whether one agrees or disagrees with the Administration�s policy
        towards Iraq, I don�t think there can be any question about Saddam�s
        conduct. He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11
        years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm
        and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear
        capacity. This he has refused to do. He lies and cheats; he snubs the
        mandate and authority of international weapons inspectors; and he games
        the system to keep buying time against enforcement of the just and
        legitimate demands of the United Nations, the Security Council, the
        United States and our allies. Those are simply the facts.” — Henry
        Waxman, Oct 10, 2002
