CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY: NEOCON1 POINTS OUT THE SWEET COMFORT OF BEING A CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRITE AT BLOGS4VICTORY

The talking points of conservatives way down the chain from the power elite come from a wide variety of sources. Quite often it is simply water cooler talk in the shop or in the office. “Hey did you hear what Rush said yesterday?” That sort of thing. Often it is from El Rushbo himself or some of the large number of AM radio right wing ideology hucksters. Others get their ideological marching orders daily from blogs and conservative screed sheets like WorldNetDaily, NewsBusters and CNSNews. Some are even more reactionary and bigoted seeking out websites that pander to the notions of white supremacy like Vanguard, Stormfront and Stuff Black People Don’t Like.

This tale of conservative hypocrisy begins with that famous moment when Sarah Palin at CPAC looked away from her TelePrompTer for a moment and reached for a Super Big Gulp, took a sip and said, “Bloomberg is not around, our Big Gulps are safe. We’re cool. Shoot, it’s just pop with low-cal ice-cubes in it.” This one one seminal moments at CPAC for Neocon1 who made note of it in comments at Blogs4Victory:

The reference is to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s failed effort to have sugary soft drinks limited in size to 16 ounces or less in the city. What Palin is seen above hoisting in a Super Big Gulp from 7 Eleven which can be as large as 64 ounces. As she says “40 ounces of pop with low calorie ice cubes” is nothing right? Wrong. Look at it this way and average sugary carbonated soda contains 140 calories per 12 ounce serving. A Super Big Gulp like the one Palin brandished at CPAC is a 40 ounce drink and contains 466 calories or about 33% of what one should consume all day. A 2010 RAND Corporation study details the harm of the average rate of consumption of such beverages and that targeting them is a better method of decreasing obesity in America than even promoting exercise. This Harvard School of Public Health study shows even more alarming facts about how sugary drinks contribute to the decline in health for Americans.

If those numbers aren’t alarming enough, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have estimated that the cost of medical obesity in the United States is was staggering $147 billion dollars [<delh! 78 739 630 d 108 s.76]* in 2009 with the Harvard study estimating it at $190 billion [h!110 772 311 d 94 s.32] in 2012. Neocon! and many other conservatives supported Palin in her little deadly joke but are up in arms about another CDC statistic recently published. This one noted the cost and prevalence of sexually transmitted infections [STIs] in the United States. Neocon1 points out, as virtually every conservative blog did that the cost of treatment for as Neocon1 called them “preventable disease” is $6 billion per year just for those between the ages of 15 and 24:

all

CONTEXT: Each year, millions of U.S. youth acquire sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Estimates of the economic burden of STDs can help to quantify the impact of STDs on the nation’s youth and on the payers of the cost of their medical care.

METHODS: We synthesized the existing literature on STD costs to estimate the lifetime medical cost per case of eight major STDs—HIV, human papillomavirus (HPV), genital herpes simplex virus type 2, hepatitis B, chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis and syphilis. We then estimated the total burden of disease by multiplying these cost-per-case estimates by the approximate number of new cases of STDs acquired by youth aged 15-24.

RESULTS: The total estimated burden of the nine million new cases of these STDs that occurred among 15-24-year-olds in 2000 was $6.5 billion (in year 2000 dollars). Viral STDs accounted for 94% of the total burden ($6.2 billion), and nonviral STDs accounted for 6% of the total burden ($0.4 billion). HIV and HPV were by far the most costly STDs in terms of total estimated direct medical costs, accounting for 90% of the total burden ($5.9 billion).

CONCLUSIONS: The large number of infections acquired by persons aged 15-24 and the high cost per case of viral STDs, particularly HIV, create a substantial economic burden.

SIX and a half BILLION a YEAR and that is only considering 15-24 yo’s

“Substantial economic burden” he says. And here is my problem. Obesity is totally preventable as well and costs Americans 31 times what STIs do. Both are subjects that should alert anyone who calls themselves a fiscal conservative to action. However, since conservatives are seemingly obsessed with putting the djinni of sex back into its golden bottle this issue, albeit a serious public health concern, at the forefront of their political discussion for political reasons while mocking the efforts of Mayor Bloomberg and those who support him like MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski. The conservatives bray about the costs of STIs but these are the same people who say that age appropriate sex education is a waste of time and only abstinence will work to curb both this public health issue but the issue of teenage pregnancy.

For the record based on the most recent CDC guidance the number of obese persons in the United states is 112,067,312 or 35.7% of the current population and costing $1,695.41 [h! 0 d 363 s.25] per year to treat for a wide variety of obesity related illnesses. Sarah Palin famously intoned the phrase “death panels” in relation to what ObamaCare was going to do to the US medical care system if it wasn’t repealed. In reality, what Palin did at CPAC, trumpeting the “right” that Americans have to guzzle sugary drinks at the peril of their own bodies, is far more likely to lead to illness and death.

“Penn State shouldn’t have been given athletic sanctions by the NCAA for looking the other way during Jerry Sandusky’s repeated rape and abuse of young boys. If America were truly exceptional, the military should have been brought in and the entire county which worshipped at the altar of Joe Paterno would have been razed to the ground by all those leftover bunker busting bombs Bush bought for the Iraq war.”– Governor General Srindra Singh or Gilbesht in a debate about American exceptionalism with Sheol conservative MP Yancey Harrell on “Overdark” with Maarit Outi Pekkonen last night.

The idea of American exceptionalism is not a new meme. The thought that the people who now live on this land, once occupied by the Human Beings; taken by violence in the name of profit, are more prosperous, more intelligent, cut from a more moral cloth and closer to the favor of their chosen Creator than any other has been clearly a concept of Faith for those who now call themselves “Conservatives” for the better part of the last one hundred twenty five Terran standard years. We, Ourselves, of the Collective and The Meditators have a problem with any such notion based simply on the statement expressed in the stripes of the flag above. One must begin to ask the questions of common men, the hoi polloi, and the oligarchs who now own your government and rule your media, “Who profits from this disaster?” and “What will be the spark that causes someone to give up their comfort in a revolution from which they may not reap a similar status to those they are fighting against?”

These are serious matters, not to be taken lightly as they were at Blogs4Victory just this past week. The conservatives there simply wanted to throw red meat at downtrodden aging white men who see their fathers have lost their birthright of unchecked bigotry in the last few decades and left them nothing more than the onanism of “being white is better than being black or brown” along with their Bibles to cling to in these desperate times. And, yes, We, Ourselves admit these are desperate times– for Conservatives. Not only is their ideology, their worldview dying, they are dying. For the moment there are a few million ardent young whites out there who shout just as loudly as the over 50 crowd about the “many ills of President Obama” but let Us be honest with Ourselves, these young men and women in their twenties aren’t in this politics game to bring back the Reagan years, roll back women’s reproductive rights or to solve America’s debt issues. They are seeking a pool of like minded people who given enough familiarity will allow them to get laid; something they wouldn’t do in a similar setting surrounded by more attractive more intelligent Progressives.

the good old days

So who does profit from all of America’s ills? There are many who do profit some of these groups will shock you others are well known. All must give up something or the Union will be lost to time and to history.

The-Rich-Get-Richer-Income-Inequality

Income inequality is clearly profited from by those who really run the country the oligarchs. Not just corporate CEOs but hedge fund managers, the boards of large law firms who write the laws and then pimp them to Congress and of course the religious oligarchs who are desperately trying to remain relevant in an age where technology is nearing its ability to make deities out of Men. And in the end this is nothing more than a clearly visceral reaction to the short duration of the human lifespan manifest in the form of greed for all things material.

Poverty-In-America-704926

Poverty has been used as a tool to keep the masses at bay since Time Immemorial. Poverty is profited from by the Church, the oligarchs and their corporate media. Poverty as an extension of bigotry feeds the furnace that drives the powerful to remain powerful. They do not care that a child is one day celebrating the reelection of America’s first Man of Color to the highest elected office and the next day a victim of gun violence. They do not care that children go hungry in the wealthiest nation on Terra as long as they are safe behind their gates and in their dens of luxury. Poverty is a prison sentence handed down by generations of greed and fear in the name of tribal purity.

An examination of these two ills shows how all the others are interconnected. It is time to drain their trough or America will be the soil where the seeds of failure of an entire species will be sown.

The main news of Terra on this night 157 Low Lux Negro in the second year after Shai’tan’s death follows the ellipses . . .

Wright cats

In Wright, New York the terrestrial press is reporting that 67 dead felines and 99 living felines were removed from the home of 50 year old Irene Vandyke. Vandyke became overwhelmed with care and feeding of the cats after the death of her husband three years ago but had resisted numerous attempt by animal groups to remove the sickened and weak creatures from her domicile.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has donated $350 million to his alma mater Johns Hopkins University. The gift, which brings Bloomberg’s philanthropy to the Baltimore private institution of higher learning to $1 billion, will be split with $200 million going to research and $100 million going to need based scholarships.

Urbana prison riots

Sixty one people have been killed and six score have been wounded in two and a half days of rioting in a Venezuelan prison in the northwestern city of Barquisimeto.

Casey anthony

Casey Anthony is filing for bankruptcy citing debts totaling over $800,000.
