Why 8th Graders Could Run the GOP More Effectively
Recently several of my more talented 8th Graders were doing reports for “Current Events” in Social Studies. (I teach them Latin.) They wanted to know why the Republicans were not actively – key word, actively – promoting their message, especially on Health Care. They knew some rudimentary things about the Dem plan, and were skeptical, perhaps repeating some of the skepticism from their parents. But | Read More »
Hillary Clinton for President: 2012 and The Gravity Of Discontent.
I have been wondering for a few weeks about Hillary Clinton and what she – and Billy Jeff – might be thinking when they see NObama’s numbers attracted by the increasing gravity of discontent. An article about her campaign fund still having several million dollars in it also hit my suspicious antennae! (The article naively wondered what was going on: what could be the purpose?) | Read More »
Beck, Rush, and The War on Freedom of the Press/Speech: Real or Hyperbole?
RedStaters know that Communist theory, along with any totalitarian theory of control, involves early control of the mass media, with the idea being that control of the “masses” is thereby facilitated, if you control what they see and hear. We already know about the bias of the MSM toward leftist politics. What some of us might not know is the back-door to stifling dissent, to | Read More »
No Prisoners! Why Any Health-Care Compromise Is Dangerous!
As of 9:00 this morning (Aug. 17th) Drudgereport is carrying a news item saying the White House is willing to eliminate the “public option” and enrage the Howard-Dean Left to pass some kind of health care reform. Beware! Number One: Why would we want to give NObama any kind of appearance of a legislative victory? Why would we want him to seem like a 21st-century | Read More »
Glenn Beck’s Report on the Fake Doctor at Jackson-Lee’s Town Hall
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksDTOdlm1k0&feature=player_embedded The mainstream media is avoiding this: Beck aired it August 14, 2009. From the YouTube author: “Roxana Mayer, a Texas Obama delegate and member of Organizing for America, Barack Obama’s political organization, attended a healthcare townhall with Democrat U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee. The organizer told the audience she was a physician and presented herself as speaking for physicians. Turns out she was a | Read More »
Your Hell-th Care Future: The Scarcity System of Dr. Emanuel’s “Complete Lives”
A blogger with the pen name “jonolan” at a website called Reflections From A Murky Pond has provided a link to an article co-authored by Rahm Emanuel’s brother Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel. See: http://blog.jonolan.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/complete-lives.pdf The January 2009 article from The Lancet talks about how to treat patients “fairly” when medical resources are scarce. The article theorizes how to allocate scarce health care resources: note the title! | Read More »
Have We Heard NObama Correctly: A Public Hell-th Care Plan NOT Subsidized By Taxpayers (?)
Allow me to quote from today’s New Hampshire “Town Hall Meeting” (in quotes because “phony staged agitprop event” would sound “mean” like the 13 year old girl said). All we want to do is set up a set of options so that if you don’t have health insurance or you’re underinsured, you can have the same deal that members of Congress have which is they | Read More »
To General Merrill McPeak: Why Pelosi’s Congress Buys 8 New Planes, But the F-22 Program Must Be Cut!
We live in times that are beyond satire: American life IS a living daily satire! Without a trace of shame or irony, our Congressional Democrat majority decides it must spend half of a billion dollars on a new fleet of luxury airplanes. Just a few weeks earlier, these wise leaders had decided that the Air Force does not need a full fleet of cutting edge | Read More »
The Byzantine Nature of the Diplomatic Disaster with North Korea: The Kims, The Clintons, and Obama
To begin: keep in mind that the North Korean government does nothing “nice” unless they have been offered a bribe. So what did they receive, or at least hope to gain, from releasing the 2 journalists? News reports have detailed that the North Koreans specifically requested (demanded?) Bill Clinton as a negotiator: this alone gives them the appearance of equivalence with a superpower. For Clinton, | Read More »
To The Republican National Committee: Publish the Worst Parts of The Dems Bills
Greetings! I have just visited the website of the Republican National Committee. www.rnc.org Allow me to be brief: it is a “crappy” website! I can find and read the 2008 Platform, whenever insomnia hits. I can buy a stuffed toy elephant, whenever my stuffed-toy-elephant desire gets too strong. Here is a suggestion: Quote the lies from Obama, Pelosi, etc., when they say, e.g., that people | Read More »
