Connie Schultz Forgets President Obama Opposes Gay Marriage

April 20th, 2010 Matt View Comments

So instead, the wife of Ohio’s junior Senator uses the pages of the Plain Dealer to write glowingly about meaningless fluff from the Obama Administration to pander to the homosexual lobby:

Only four days after Peter Taylor had moved in with the man he loved, he was racing him to the closest emergency room.

The following morning, his partner lay in a hospital bed and delivered the jarring news.

“I’m HIV-positive,” he told Peter. “This is an opportunity for you to leave.”

“Why would I do that?” Peter replied. “I’m here. I’m in love with you. And I’m staying.”

Thus began the nine months they had left. They exchanged rings and planned a trip to Canada to marry, but they never made it. Sam was never healthy enough to go. (Peter asked that I give his partner a pseudonym to protect his parents’ privacy.) Sam’s disease soon exploded into full-blown AIDS, and he spent weeks at a time in Lakewood Hospital, and then University Hospitals, neither of which ever challenged Peter’s primary role in Sam’s life.[...]

Even if a couple lives near a hospital that recognizes their rights as partners, fear looms. One never knows when illness may strike. Every out-of-town visit to family, every vacation, every road trip, they worry whether their documents — and their very relationship — will be honored if one of them is rushed to a hospital. Anyone who has ever had a loved one hospitalized knows the crucial role a family advocate can play.[...]

Last week, President Barack Obama finally issued an order that forces most hospitals to respect the rights of gay and lesbian partners. In essence, he told them to treat these couples like any heterosexual patient with a significant other and the necessary advance directives, such as durable powers of attorney and health care proxies. As usual, what’s good for gay and lesbian Americans is good for the rest of us, too, as the change in policy also stands to help single and widowed straight people who need the “support and comfort of a good friend.”

“For all of these Americans,” the president wrote, “the failure to have their wishes respected concerning who may visit them or make medical decisions on their behalf has real consequences. It means that doctors and nurses do not always have the best information about patients’ medications and medical histories and that friends and certain family members are unable to serve as intermediaries to help communicate patients’ needs. . . . And it means that all too often, people are made to suffer or even to pass away alone, denied the comfort of companionship in their final moments while a loved one is left worrying and pacing down the hall.”

It’s sad to think we needed a presidential order to force more hospitals to do the right thing for Americans who want to do exactly what we encourage and celebrate in committed couples.

Horrible stuff right? But inconvenient for the Schultzer is that ALMOST NO HOSPITAL HAVE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON VISITORS AT ALL.

Individuals can confer a health care proxy and power of attorney to anyone.

President Obama’s memo accomplishes nothing for visitation rights. Instead, it is another example of the Federal government taking over every tiny detail of healthcare and a subtle attempt to promote the homosexual lifestyle while still maintaining the President’s carefully poll tested opposition to homosexual marriage.

And to push that message, the wife of a United States Senator just shamelessly used the corpse of an AIDS victim as a prop.

Annoying Facebook Updates from Mrs. Sherrod Brown

April 5th, 2010 Matt View Comments

A friend thinks I should make this a regular feature…. Updates from Connie Schultz’s Facebook page. What do you think?

Anyway, here are two to get us started:

First, it’s time to picture her in bed with her husband:

“This week we’re celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary.

When people ask Sherrod what it’s like to be married to me, he often offers a story from summer 2008, in Denver. He was giving a talk to about 200 Democratic donors, thanking them for their support, when the man standing next to me leaned in and said, “I can’t stand that guy’s voice.”

“Really?” I said.

“Yeah,” he said, then curled his hands in front of him to look like claws. “Like fingernails on a blackboard.

“Hmm,” said. “I really like his voice.”

“You do?” he said, incredulous. I motioned for him to lean in closer. “You know when I really like his voice?” I said.

He shook his head. “When?”

“When he rolls over in the middle of the night and says, (insert gravelly voice imitation here), “I love you babeeee.”

The color drained from his face. “Oh, my God, you’re Sherrod Brown’s wife!”

You bet I am.

Boredom eludes us.”

And of course Connie was driving:

“Sherrod and I were headed to Columbus last night when the Honda, bearing a McCain-Palin bumper sticker, first appeared on our left. I was driving.

The guy looked at us once. Did a double-take and looked at us again. He started waving his hand and mouthed, “Is that Sherrod Brown? Is that Sherrod Brown?” I smiled and nodded. Then he wagged his finger and his car started veering right-to-left, to the point where I decided to slide over just a bit. Then he leaned way across the front seat and, still yelling, gave Sherrod the finger.

OK. Fine. We kept driving, and first he pulled in front of us, then drove to the right of us, then fell behind at quite a distance. I thought it was because he saw me photograph his license plate. I always carry a camera these days, and whenever someone recognizes us and starts bullying on the road I hold it up and shoot, without a flash. Usually, they realize I’ve just captured either their faces or, in this case, the license plate, and it freaks them out enough to leave us alone.

This time, however, I looked in the rear view mirror and it was clear he wasn’t finished with us. The driver was shuffling some papers, writing something down, and then he started speeding toward us. I turned to Sherrod and said, “I think he has a sign.”

Sure enough, he pulled up close behind, then suddenly veered into the lane to our left. Driving with his left hand, he leaned far over and waved a sign that read, “1 TERM 4 YOU.”

We stared straight ahead, but he kept veering into our lane. So we switched to the far right.

And that’s the punch line, I guess.”

I’m surprised he doesn’t have a driver. It’s a little known fact that Marc Dann once used to drive for Sherrod Brown… Maybe Dann needs an extra job now?

Sherrod Brown, Beta Male

January 28th, 2010 Matt Comments off

Mrs. Sherrod Brown, better known as Connie Shultz, wrote this week about so-called gender income-inequality. Do you get the sense she is telling us about why she fell in love with Senator Brown?:

The memory of my parents’ struggle over who controlled the money hit me last week like a rough ride through a time tunnel after the Pew Research Center reported on the rise of the breadwinning wife. More wives are out-earning their husbands, in part because more of the lost jobs in this current recession belonged to men. But more women are getting college degrees, too, and pursuing careers. The equation of marriage is changing. As Pew reported, in 1970, 4 percent of husbands had wives who made more money. In 2007, that number rose to 22 percent.

Oh, boy. Lots of coverage about the “mancession” and “alpha wives” vs. “beta husbands.” You’d think the overwhelming majority of women were now out-earning the men folk, and in their spare time lopping off vital male anatomy just for sport.

Of course, income disparity between genders has been a serious issue for a long time. Most women still make less than men, even in comparable jobs. But the public hyperventilation over the Pew report illustrates how too many of us — men and women — are burdened with a traditional definition of manhood.

Most men, it seems, still determine their worth as human beings by the number of zeros in their take-home pay. Some women buy into this; others don’t. Hence the latest flurry of stories and blogs about high-earning women insisting their husbands must make more than they do, or lamenting that they can’t find men who make less and don’t care.

Maybe I’m reading too much into this. However, Sever held a job in his life, continued being a pot head long after his days at Yale, and… uh, oh yeah his name is “Sherrod.”

Connie, as a true product of the 60s, is still still campaigning for blurring the lines between men and women. Considering how depressing and negative her columns always are,

But if Connie is truly worried about income inequality, she will join me in opposing the Lilly Ledbetter law and other rules against workplace discrimination. Why? Because they make the expression of discrimination costless. But when market is left alone, discrimination becomes extremely expensive.

The late Milton Friedman explains:

Connie Schultz Has a Pulitzer?

November 25th, 2009 Matt View Comments

From Senator Sherrod Brown’s email (my TWENTY-FIFTH Happy Thanksgiving email from a politician):

I’m personally most thankful to have all our kids living in Ohio again, and look forward to spending as much time with them as I can. On Thanksgiving, we’ll be gathering at my brother Bob’s house and the next day all the children (and our wonderful new grandson, Clayton) will be coming to our house to eat WAY too much turkey and catch up.

Football will be watched, politics will be debated, naps will be taken, and I’m sure many heated games of Scrabble will be played. Hopefully Connie will cut me some slack on those words that have not yet made it into a dictionary. At any rate, there’s no shame in losing to a Pulitzer Prize winner, right?

Fun times in the Brown family. I can’t get home for tomorrow without driving through their city of Avon, so as I pass by and smell the pot and socialism I’ll try not to gag.

Also, Bob Brown? really? How did he wind up without an odd female name?

Another Puller Prize Winning Paragraph from Mrs. Sherrod Brown

November 3rd, 2009 Matt View Comments

From Cleveland.com:

And I do have this horrible habit of laughing uproariously whenever a woman my age swears she is constantly mistaken to be her daughter’s sister. Seriously, who says that out loud?

Do I laugh because I don’t believe her, or to stifle a homicidal urge? Who knows? Who cares? Ten minutes from now I’ll be completely distracted by the umpteenth hunt for my car keys or panicking because I can’t for the life of me remember if I let our poor blind pug back into the house before leaving for work.

Such incredible style and prose!

Connie Schultz Uses the Death of a 22 Year Old Girl To Promote Socialism

September 29th, 2009 Matt View Comments

This is from Pultzer Prize Winning Connie Schultz’ FaceBook page:

why we need obamacare
(Click to Enlarge)

In America, it would be illegal for hospitals to refuse treatment. But since liberalism isn’t an intellectual pursuit but is instead about emotion, Connie gladly uses a horrific tragedy to promote socialized medicine. I will pray for Kimberly Young’s family, and pray that Connie discovers what an ugly, soulless witch she is.

Connie Schultz Comes TO My Defense on DailyKOS… Calls Me Creepy

September 3rd, 2009 Matt View Comments

connieschultzdefense

My goodness, I hate writing about myself. If I was even 1/2 as interesting as Lyndsey Teter, I’d write about myself all the time. But I have to respond to this.

First of all, thank you for filling us in on that mysterious newspaper lingo. After print newspapers go out of business soon, it will be important to document such details for historical purposes.

I’m not mentally handicapped, although I have no sense of fashion and style. For that, I apologize.

Many weeks ago, I tried to explain to Connie by email that because of her husband, at a horribly offensive speech he gave to my graduating high school class about Republicans keeping blacks from the polls in Florida during the 2000 election, I decided to become more involved in politics to stop idiots like that.

Sherrod, along with his wife, are soulless leftist agitators right out of the pages of Rules for Radicals. And I think it is smart for conservatives, who aren’t exactly the protesting types, to learn from such tactics to fight back in defense of liberty & the principles of the Constitution, which our side is effectively doing via Tea Parties. It is really the only way to fight back against Obama’s perpetual Presidential campaign squad.

I didn’t go to the event to see Connie. I went because more than a dozen of my freedom-loving friends confirmed that they would be there. I didn’t know she was there until Sherrod mentioned her.

And just because she stays awake with cold sweats thinking of me on those lonely nights while Sherrod’s away in DC finding new ways to kill off the private insurance market, doesn’t mean that I would bother FOLLOWING her. good grief

Ultimately, it is people like Connie Schultz and Joe Hallett- the type who pretend that politics is a noble profession- who will never be in on the joke. In the mean time, if ObamaCare passes and I desperately need a treatment for a serious illness which isn’t government-approved, it would be a distinct privilege if the wife of a US Senator could pull my plug in honor of our new socialist utopia. To the State, dear Commie Connie!

Just got Back From the Ted Kennedy Health Care Rally in Columbus

September 1st, 2009 Matt View Comments

Update: Daily Kossers are checking out this site. In the words of Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga, “screw them.” (Except this guy. That’s actually quite funny.)

Am processing video… nothing too exciting. Ran into Eric from Plunderbund, who I was going to talk to until he shoved a camera in my face. oh well. He is just at typical pot-smoking marxist thug. He is also in a very unhappy marriage, so I suppose venting by harassing harassing me is cheaper than going to a psychologist. But I’ll save this sort of uninteresting blogger vs. blogger stuff for Buckeye State Blog.

I missed Connie Schultz by a few minutes minutes! I asked Rep. Ted Celeste where she was, and apparently I was standing EXACTLY where she was standing before she left with Senator Sherrod Brown. so close! The spot still smelled from her lack of deodorant… which might have actually been the stench of self-righteous, maternalistic liberalism.

And I met the lovely SoS Jennifer Brunner with her husband who could easily pass as a conservative with his fashionable bow tie.  I tried to schedule an interview with her. She apparently has read this blog and therefore knows of my interview with Ohio AG Rich Cordray. Jennifer has reached out to the almost non-existent liberal Ohio blogosphere, so why not talk to a nice guy like me? If she does, I promise to reconsider my reservations about women’s suffrage.

I had some great lines and jokes for the Huffington Post reporter who spotted me, so I’m curious to see what she writes, if anything.

Connie Schultz Supports Charity That Isn’t Coerced?

August 30th, 2009 Matt Comments off

Schuschultz2ltz took a week off from her job as an unregistered Federal lobbyist a defender of ObamaCare to talk about a warm-fuzzy story involving the donating of a book bag to an underprivileged child.  awwwwww

Hopefully Connie’s arugula-eating elitist fans follow in the footsteps of Laura Dennstedt, as liberals are not exactly known for their contributions to charity.

But remind me again, just how much does The Plain Dealer pay Connie Schultz to scan FaceBook to look for last-minute column ideas?:

That’s how Laura Dennstedt McNaughton was feeling last week. She grew up in Cleveland, and raised her four kids in Lakewood until moving seven years ago to Raleigh, N.C. Her youngest son graduated from high school last spring. For the first time in more than 20 years, no one needed her in that back-to-school mom kind of way.

That didn’t sit well with McNaughton.

Last Sunday morning, she posted this on Facebook: “This time of year I always feel like I should buy notebooks and crayons and protractors . . . oh my.”

Minutes later, Toni Coral, a schoolteacher near Detroit, responded: “You should donate a backpack to your local school. I’m sure the principal knows a kid who really needs it! LOL (poke) OMG”

I can’t believe Connie really lives in Avon, a city in which I’m related to perhaps 1/2 of the residents, including the Mayor. My goodness, I really hate Connie Schultz.

When Connie Schultz Talked About “Fear” in the Health Care Debate…

August 28th, 2009 Matt Comments off

she was apparently comparing opponents of ObamaCare to rats.

Rush Limbaugh vs. Brain-Dead Liberal Connie Schultz

August 26th, 2009 Matt Comments off

First I picked on Mrs. Sherrod Brown, and now it is Rush’s turn:

During a Cleveland.com webchat, it was noted that roughly 30,000 people read Connie’s column. (I’m not sure how they know who reads and who uses it to wrap fish in.). At that rate, even though they are roughly the same 30,000 each time, this one appearance reached more people than read her weekly column in an entire year. And her 1 appearance on on the low-rated MSNBC just reached more than ten times the people who watched the original broadcast.

The “I Hate Connie Schultz” club is growing exponentially!

Connie Schultz, You Ignorant Slut

August 26th, 2009 Matt View Comments

(Update: Apparently, people who are my age and younger haven’t spent much time watching old episodes of Saturday Night Live. My apologies to anyone who didn’t understand the reference. Apparently, my lame jokes are best understood by men who are at least 50 years old.)

Connie Schultz was in this segment on state-controlled MSNBC tonight. Feel free to scroll pass more than 3 minutes of attitudinal, leftist ideological comfort-food before her segment:

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy


I especially enjoyed how Schultz was essentially defending her husband’s shameless use of human tragedies as stage props, as emotionally hysterical women are more memorable than facts and flow-charts. (Funny, because when I think of crying women, I am inclined to think of the ex-wife that Senator Brown used to abuse.)

The thesis of Schultz’ argument is “Trust your government. Trust my husband. They will take care of you. In loco Parentis.” And if it wasn’t clear before, it is now certain that Mrs. Schultz will not rest until everyone must plea with her husband’s office to for surgeries and treatments that might not be “approved.”

And “neighbors helping neighbors” is meaningless to Connie Schultz, as liberals like her are not exactly known for their uncoerced generosity.

And how are conservatives using fear? We are simply concerned about government taking over 15% of the private economy, and the inherent reduction in the quality of service that this sort of centralized-system leads to. In Connie’s view, is it always fear-mongering to be skeptical of government?

Instead, the only use of fear is by Connie and President Obama, who say we are in a “health care crisis!!” and yet are willing to completely scrap the “public option” for political reasons. And because lefties, using the Saul Alinsky model, thrive on fear and chaos, she did not hesitate to mention threatening phone calls from crazies or Democrat-LaRouchites comparing President Obama to Adolph Hitler.

Also, the Politifact.com she mentions has been known to show bias. Schultz didn’t mention non-partisan FactCheck.org, which showed that ObamaCare will pay for abortions and it that absoutely isn’t true that everyone gets to keep their insurance under this plan.

Without the costs of ObamaCare included, the US deficit is now anywhere between $9 trillion and $14 trillion. I’m not quite sure how to picture those numbers, but if it helps- light travels roughly six trillion miles per year.

I really hate Connie Schultz.

Pleasantly Plump Mrs. Sherrod Brown vs. Whole Foods

August 16th, 2009 Matt View Comments

Isn’t it fun to see the left turn against “organic” food providers?:

John Mackey, the founder of Whole Foods Market Inc., with its trendy, upscale grocery stores, argued in an opinion piece last week in The Wall Street Journal that most health care problems are “self-inflicted” by fat Americans who don’t eat right. His essential question: Whoever said everyone deserves health care?

“Many promoters of health care reform believe that people have an intrinsic ethical right to health care — to equal access to doctors, medicines and hospitals,” he wrote. “While all of us empathize with those who are sick, how can we say that all people have more of an intrinsic right to health care than they have to food or shelter?”

I read those words and see my father — the factory worker with the chronically sick kid, the guy who could never afford the lean meats and organic produce at Whole Foods. It’s hard to think families like ours would make the cut in John Mackey’s equation of exemptions.

My support for health care reform? It’s personal.

From her words, one might think Mackey is some heartless, cruel person. But his column shows him to be far more compassionate than the columnist/wife of a U.S. Senator who can’t wait until government controls all aspects of health care and you will have to write letters to her husband to spare the lives of loved ones who have been deemed “too expensive.”

What is Mackey arguing for?

* Remove legal obstacles to the creation of health savings accounts
* Make costs transparent.
* Change the tax code so insurance isn’t tied to employers.
*Allow consumers to buy insurance across state lines.
* Repeal government mandates about what insurance companies must cover (Ohio Republicans and Democrats have been especially and equally terrible on this point.)
* Reform Medicare
* tort reform
* make it tax-deductible to donate to people who aren’t covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or SCHIP

And Mackey has been campaigning in favor of market-based health care reform for awhile. In 2007, he was part of a fabulous John Stossel health care special on 20/20, where he explained why it is terrible that consumers of health care have no idea what procedures and treatments actually cost (scroll to 6:00):

So what did Mackey really say to Schultz that offended her so much? Two words: personal responsibility…

Rather than increase government spending and control, we need to address the root causes of poor health. This begins with the realization that every American adult is responsible for his or her own health.

Unfortunately many of our health-care problems are self-inflicted: two-thirds of Americans are now overweight and one-third are obese. Most of the diseases that kill us and account for about 70% of all health-care spending—heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and obesity—are mostly preventable through proper diet, exercise, not smoking, minimal alcohol consumption and other healthy lifestyle choices.

WConnie Schultzith the HSAs that Whole Foods generously offers its employees, the incentive to stay healthy is a financial one, because you KEEP the money at the end of the year if it is not spent on health care. But it doesn’t mean unhealthy people don’t receive treatment- Which is unlike Schultz’s preferred system, which, much like in England and Canada, is far less forgiving to people who don’t abide by government-approved diets.

Since Schultz has no good argument to make against market based health care reforms, she resorted to the same tactic her husband used at his sham health care town hall last week in Columbus: use real human tragedies as stage props in the never ending campaign for more obtrusive government. Connie, you are pathetic.

And to thank Mackey, even though I swore off the “organic food” craze long ago, I became a new Whole Foods shopper today.

Connie Schultz, Update

July 5th, 2009 Matt Comments off

Mrs. Sherrod Brown, just like her husband, is a strong believer in the power of a large, benevolent government to prop up failing industries deemed “too big to fail.”  Today, she has a new column up about her proposal to creative enforce a 24-hour exclusivity copyright rule  for online MSM journalism and a crackdown on aggregators.

Last week, Connie distorted a point I made during a live video Chat on this subject, which was that instead of blaming bloggers and “aggregators” for the decline of the Plain Dealer, why not examine the content itself? For example, like many people do, I happily pay about $10/month for the Wall Street Journal. But would I pay to read Dick Feagler and Phillip Morris? Heck no! And after years of reading their nonsense, perhaps they should pay me.

The internet is a good thing for journalism, as it streamlines the process of reporting but cutting costs and eliminating the need for layers of expensive, unionized middle men which can be found roaming throughout the office of the PD.

There will always be a market for news and opinion, but Connie’s belief that certain publications deserve special legal protection is incredibly arrogant and misguided.
