What’s Going to Happen to My Canadian Friends?
For years we’ve been protecting our Canadian friends. They live under our military defenses; they enjoy the benefits of our commerce and wealth; they come and go as they want. They’re nice people and great neighbors. I worry about them though because where are they going to go now when they need a doctor?
Democrats, Leadership, and ObamaCare
I am 43 years old with 25 stents in three major heart arteries; the American healthcare system saved my life. My stents are drug-eluting, the same state of art stents recently received by Bill Clinton. In Canada, my birth country, many are not so lucky. There, rationing, lack of innovation, and a shortage of expertise are real problems and no perversion of the truth changes | Read More »
Republicans! Beware Of Obama’s Move To The Right.
Be wary… be very wary. There are a number of gutless Republicans who would like nothing better than to be thought of as ‘reaching across the aisle’ to find some sort of accommodation with the White House, so as not to be seen as the ‘party of no’. Any Republican who thinks that this may be a good idea has missed the entire message of | Read More »
But I Thought the Canadian System Was So Much Better
A Canadian Premier is coming to the U.S. for heart surgery. A Premier is like a Governor.We keep hearing how terrible and awful the American health care system is compared to the Canadian one. So why is he coming here?
Canadian Jews leaving Liberalism; Haaretz
Canadian Jews are moving from Liberal to Conservative, Haaretz newspaper reports. “The Jewish community is not a large demographic, but it tends to be concentrated in a small number of seats… It looks like an ethnic group that could be separated from the Liberals.” At stake are five or six closely contested seats in a parliament the Conservatives are just 10 votes short of controlling | Read More »
Americans Must Demand Secure Borders
On the heals of President Obama’s announcement Tuesday that he is sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, the discovery Wednesday of a large cross-border tunnel, extending from Mexico 860 feet into San Diego, reminded America how critical it is to secure its borders if it wants security from terrorist acts on American soil. The discovered tunnel from Mexico to San Diego had lighting, electrical, ventilation | Read More »

The Sudden Silence on Swine Flu is Deafening – Whither the Emergency?
Now that more than a week has come and gone since House liberals sold off the freedom of Americans under the guise of health care late on a Saturday night, the clamor over the supposed swine flu crisis is already fading into memory. While the nation waits for the falsehoods to return before the Senate takes its vote, we should reflect upon the events which | Read More »

Democrats Defy Constitution and Lie About Choice on Health Insurance
As Rep. Clyburn, the 3rd ranking House Democrat, recently put it ‘There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do.’ Sadly, the modus operandi of leadership in Washington today is to shove through Congress whatever legislation they can get away with nearly complete disregard to the responsibilities chartered in our country’s founding | Read More »

Germans will walk out if Ahmadinejad speech involves Holocaust denial. Huzzah.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) I have a problem with this. Germany will walk out of the U.N. General Assembly if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust in a speech he will give Wednesday, and it wants other European Union countries to do the same, the foreign ministry said. My problem with this is that intolerance to Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism should be so instinctive | Read More »
This is just too rich
Fantastic. The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association, Dr. Anne Doig, is quoted in this story as saying, “We all agree the system is imploding…” The out-going president of the association is completely off the reservation. He says “… competition should be welcomed, not feared.” In other words, Canada needs a private option. Dr. Doig neatly sums up: ” … if it keeps on going without | Read More »
If Canada’s System is So Great, Then Why…
The left continually holds up the Canadian socialized healthcare system as the best example, one we should strive to emulate. But as each week passes we find more and more reason to doubt the panacea in the Great White North. Last week news came out that Canada forced an infant to flee its country and into our own to get life saving treatment. A baby | Read More »
Meet Claude Castonguay
As I have done several times, an instructive way to learn about what might happen if we are so foolish as to institute a national healthcare program like the one president Obama wants is to look to those unfortunate nations that have already trod that path. To understand what could happen here we need to hear from those leaders elsewhere that once thought they had | Read More »

Great Right North
Just when you though it wasn’t possible to be anymore pessimistic about the direction the Obama administration is pursuing on the economy and its attitude towards increased spending and using taxes as a punitive tool, the Washington Post has to come along and do an interactive feature on how Canada has balanced its budget every year since 1998 by cutting spending while reducing taxes.

In case you had a shred of respect left for McCain…
maybe this will cure you. Arizona Sen. John McCain made the dubious claim Friday that Sept. 11 hijackers entered the United States through Canada — just days after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the former governor of Arizona, said the same thing. Napolitano retracted her claim on Thursday after Canadian officials chided her for the remark, calling it an unfortunate misconception. Napolitano admitted Thursday that | Read More »
