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 »
The Children Are Watching, Mr. Obama!
My students are 6th through 8th Graders at a Catholic school: most are of average intelligence, some are brilliant, some are dull. What unites them is their ability to spot an unqualified phony: most were appalled by the presidential election result in November, but they tried to be optimistic. As the months have gone by, they began asking me more and more questions about why | Read More »
