The Health Care Reform distortion
The Republicans are letting us down by not standing up for the obvious. There is nothing wrong with our health care system other than cost. It is the best in the world. The solution shouldn’t be to dismantle our current system, the solution should be to figure out why it is so expensive and address the root causes. By addressing three areas alone, doctor bills | Read More »
Shouting from the Rooftops to be Heard in the Debate over Health Care
The Debate on Health Care is over. At least that is what the hard-left Democrats and their lackeys and lickspittles in the Pravda Media tell us. This was a surprise to me, since I never saw the debate, heard it, or read it. I have a television. I watch the news. I am on the Internet. Man, am I ever on the Internet! No debate | Read More »
What is going on here?
By “here,” I mean in the United States for the last year or so. And I don’t mean to imply that I have an answer.

Nothing he could say was recognized publicly | Read More »

Huffington Post: Presenting Fake ‘Doctors’ as Experts?
There is a charge starting to make the rounds of the science and medical blogs that the Huffington Post is allowing its bloggers to claim they are “doctors” when some really aren’t qualified to claim the title.

Science bloggers challenge credibility of Huffington Post “wellness” editor
Should the news site label its columnists and editors as “doctors” when they don’t have medical degrees?

Where is Ted?
The loudest and most liberal democrat and the voice of the democratic party for decades has gone missing….why? and where? It’s not like a Kennedy to sit on the sidelines while the most important presidential race takes place. For that matter, where is Senator Byrd? There was talk of his being hospitalized. Why no word on either of these two democrats? Anyone?……Anyone?…2 more seats.
Lips turning purple
Really enjoyed the two presidential candidates at the Alfred E. Smith dinner per Fox News. However, my wife and I became very curious about Obama’s listless performances during last night’s debate and the dinner speech. In our community, we see many persons, mostly smokers, that have darkened or purpled lips. Some of whom will sacrifice their heart for a cigarette. Partisanship aside, I am as | Read More »
Obama’s Sense of Humor
