Obamanomics and future of jobs, jobs, jobs
Just saw this report from Bureau of Labor Statistics on the job opportunities for the decade. Wow, how depressing is this list? This is what people have to look forward to under Obama.

Stimulus report: Infrastructure being built!
But it’s not roads and bridges. It’s socialized medicine rationing infrastructure. 500 pages worth from the feds, all for a few billion(reported as much as $45billion) in payoffs. Notice how often “Feds” will be quoted in health care articles from now on and tell me its not socialized medicine.

Put down your weapons, Obama is listening!
In the category of world peace, sugar plum fairies, santa claus, and easter bunny. This is our commander in chief. Because he traveled to foreign countries and his sister is half indonesian, and that he listens, the world will put down its weapons. h/t Allahpundit @ Hotair.com These campaign reminders never cease to shock me of how naive Obamatopians really were and continue to be.
Deja vu, all over again
What’s old is new. A BBC news article on newly released documents revealed that US Carter/UK Thatcher relationship was strained at the height of Northern Ireland troubles. The National Archives files show the murder of Lord Mountbatten by the IRA in 1979 did not prompt the response from the US that the UK had hoped for. While president Jimmy Carter expressed his “profound sadness” at the | Read More »

Is being right on facts or discussing them even enough?
The ends justify the means. We are constantly reminded of this being the ruling credo by the left. While we sit there and provide all kinds of real facts, common sense, science, open debates, the left has none of it. No real discussion on health care, global warming, carbon sequestration, cap/trade, card check, on and on. Are we one handed clappers? Does being right on | Read More »
Left waking up? World wanting “Candidate Obama” instead of President Obama
After nearly a year of proving he is not anything but the man behind the curtain mirage, the left is finally starting to wake up to the reality of Obama.

A glimpse into the future of ObamaScare
Who doesn’t think when government has control they won’t mandate anything? It’s already happening. After they crush the private healthcare/insurance market and control most of the health care spending the one size fits all mandates from a few radical propeller heads in Washington will rain down upon us.

IBD survey of 1,376 Physicians, plus Baucus bombshell
Will America ever get the real facts? How representative is the AMA of physicians as a whole? IBD article reported that AMA only represents 18% of physicians. A shockingly low number if you ask me.
