OBAMA PROCLAIMS “WEE WEE,” BUT NO “TEACHABLE MOMENTS”
If ever an opportunity presented itself for some great “teachable moments,” as the President likes to say, it is the health care debate, with all the alleged “myths” being spread about the dems’ Heath Care Bill by us right wing fanatics who think that the Bill will lead to: · a government takeover of a huge segment of the economy; · rationed care, especially for | Read More »

A guide for injured veterans called “Your Life, Your Choices” has come under scrutiny. According to Foxnews, the guide was pulled under the Bush Administration because it sends a “hurry-up-and-die” message to injured veterans. It has been resuscitated under the Obama Administration.

The Death Panels Are Real. We Have the Video.
The “Death Panels” get liberals hackles up more than the thought of “rationing” healthcare. But let’s be real. Given limited resources and government funding, at some point your healthcare will be the subject of a cost/benefit analysis by a government bureaucrat. Now here’s the funny thing: it is already happening. We posted on this earlier, but the clip over 3 minutes and 30 seconds. For | Read More »

Palin Continues the Siege on Obama’s Socialist Medicine
Sarah Palin has just begun to fight. And the liberals are in the corner weeping, shaking and peeing their pants. That mean woman just won’t go away. They tried everything they could to make her irrelevant, but she just won’t go away. Please make her stop picking on us. Harry Reid is probably ready to declare another war lost, Nancy Pelosi is grinning like an | Read More »
Thought for the Morning and an Open Thread
Here’s your thought for the day:If the Democrats want us to treat seriously that Republicans wish to starve old people and children, then they must treat seriously that many do have legitimate reasons for believing the Democrats want Grandma to kill herself to help meet the federal bottom line.Frankly, there is more legitimacy in the idea that Democrats do want old people to move toward | Read More »
“Death Panels” Are History: Sarah Palin Plays Her Detractors Like Fools
If “death panels” are a figment of paranoid and feeble minds, why did the Senate take the language out of their bill? That’s what they just did. The language in the Senate Bill that correlated to Section 1233 of the House bill was stripped today. Senator Grassley stated that the “death panel” language was stripped because it could “be misinterpreted and implemented incorrectly”. While many | Read More »
Sen. Grassley: ‘Death Panels’ are out.
Mind you, this is just from one version of the multiple health care rationing bills that the Democrats tried – and failed – to rush through Congress, but one step at a time. The Senate Finance Committee will drop a controversial provision on consultations for end-of-life care from its proposed healthcare bill, its top Republican member said Thursday.

Obama’s Brave Town Hall Facing a Sea of Sycophants
The following column appeared in my Examiner.com page. President Barack Obama bravely faced down a packed town hall consisting of Teddy Ruxpin and the Care Bears yesterday. Noticeably absent were regular Americans who dislike socialism. This despite the fact that they flock in massive numbers to every other town hall meeting across the nation, and public opinion polls show a clear majority of Americans are | Read More »
Camille Paglia has no buyer’s remorse.
Which should relieve the administration, given what she might have written if she did: …I must confess my dismay bordering on horror at the amateurism of the White House apparatus for domestic policy. When will heads start to roll? I was glad to see the White House counsel booted, as well as Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, and hope it’s a harbinger of things to | Read More »
